Fox Island

 

Fox island is a county park and nature preserve in southwest Allen County, Indiana. Located on the north side of the Little River, the park is in the middle of what was once a huge wetland stretching from Fort wayne to Huntington.


In the late 1800s, most of the ancient wetland was drained to allow for farming. The small wetlands on the northern edge of Fox Island are remnants of the original wetland that was drained more than 100 years ago. Most of Fox Island is now forested.
