Explore one of Indiana's largest privately owned Certified National Forest at Walnut Valley Realm, with 300 acres of wooded trails, winding creeks and wild wetlands.  New in 2021 we are adding a cabin perched on a hilltop amongst the oak trees.  When I raised bison, this was one of their favorite places to cool off and take a nice break from the summer sun.  Nearby you can find rivers to kayak, lakes to swim at, and stables to ride horses. Above it all,  you'll be welcomed with true Hoosier Hospitality!

Site #1 Northern Lights: Electricity, but more in the open, great star gazing and landscape view.

Site#2 Millie's Way: Electricity, At the front of the campground. Great for RV's, with water and electric close by.

Site#3 Summer Breeze: Electricity, and at the heart of the upper campground. great for 2 RV Groups, or larger tent groups.

Site#4 South Shore: Electricity, sunshine, shade, and a great sunrise view. A favorite.

Site#5 Little Charlie: Primitive, tent only with a touch of privacy, yet still in the upper campground. Named for the fabled Little Charlie Indiana Reservation.

Site#6 Overwatch: Primitive, a sun lovers favorite sitting on top of the Walnut Valley with a great view.

Site#7 Oriole Alley: Primitive, full shade with room for two tents. Great for bird watching.

Site #8 The Mint: Primitive, enjoy the fragrance of wild mint that surrounds this site. 

Site #9 Hanks Hide-A-Way: Primitive, a quaint site carved out amongst the walnut trees along the valley floor.

Site#10 The Cul-de-Sac: Primitive, the most remote primitive site we have in the valley. Quiet and private. 

Site#11 The Meadow: Primitive, Full Sun, but smaller RV accessible. Feel like you are on the plains with a wide open space, great for sunsets and star gazing.

Site#12 Deer Crossing: Primitive, one of the most popular and all time favorite with our guest. Picnic Table and fire ring. Room for two tents and two vehicles. Perfect for early season song bird watching. 

Site#13 Sunset Blvd: Primitive, The best sunset views on the property.  

Site#14 Deadpool: Primitive, very private, can accommodate multiple tents and vehicles. This site was once a shallow pond catching the field runoff water.  After putting grass in the field water ways, the pond dried up and disappeared.

We were excited to return in the Fall and enjoyed another peaceful stay at Walnut Realm. Brian is a great host and we're thankful he chooses to share his beautiful land with us hipcampers. Such a great place to relax and unwind. Can't wait to return next year!

Just camped at site #14 for 4 nights, 10/15 thru 10/19. Weather took a cold turn half way thru our stay, down to upper 20's at night, and got season's first snow! Fortunately, we have a hot tent with a wood stove! Fall colors were great (as we hoped), and our site gave us some shelter from the gusty winds. Enjoyed hiking the trails thru the woods, saw more deer than we could count! This was our second visit to Walnut Realm and we were not disappointed, even with the wintery weather. One of our favorite places to camp, for sure👍.

The camp site we had was awesome. Loved the space between camp sites. Brian is a wonderful host. Will definitely come again. It would be nice if there was better signage to show you to your camp site. Also maybe a better entrance sign. Very hard to find in the dark. Overall though, beautiful land.
