Welcome to our primitive campground on the beautiful Blue River! We have 2 acres of riverfront property at the end of a dead end road at the Crawford/Washington County line. Nice and secluded, we have the perfect place to get away. There is river access for swimming and fishing or you can rent a canoe or kayak from us for a little paddling around. We provide picnic tables and fire rings. Firewood can be purchased from us for an additional cost. Our grounds are fairly flat with plenty of tree cover. If you enjoy hammock camping, our trees are perfect for that! Wildlife is abundant in the area; deer, otter, eagles, raccoons, and beaver are likely to be seen year round. If you are looking for activities nearby you will find Old Mill Canoe Rental in Fredericksburg (15 min drive), Marengo Cave (15 min drive), Beck's Mill (20 min drive), Buffalo Trace Park (25 min drive), as well as many other attractions in nearby Corydon, Salem, and Paoli.

The campsite itself is still beautiful and well maintained and the upgraded portapots are clutch. This experience was dramatically different from last summer though, and it left me really sad.

First, we had the unfortunate experience of being camped very close to a loud, 4 hour long domestic dispute that raged into the wee hours of the morning. I know that's not Old Mill Canoe co's fault, but it really soured my experience.

I normally prefer isolated sites like this one, but because we were packed in tight next to the drunk yelling, it was robbed of its quiet charm. We drove several hours to be out in nature, and then we were surrounded by people.

We finally worked up the courage to approach them around 2 or 3 AM and after a brief altercation with us, they finally agreed to stop yelling. They started again around 7 or 8 AM as they packed up to leave. After that though, the campsite was less packed and we had a much better time. There was also noticeably less wildlife in the river as well this year, probably due to the increased camping and SCREAMING.

Overall, it felt very different from last summer. I feel conflicted.

in the middle of nowhere and very scary as a solo camper. driving in you pass a TON of confederate/racist flags which is so unnerving. no cell service which also stressed me out. would maybe go back with people but would not recommend if you’re on your own

Response from Angela, the Host, on June 7th, 2021

I'm sorry you felt the need to give us a bad review based on things that are in no way under our control. It is clearly stated in our description that this is a secluded campground. We do not fly any flags on our property and no one on the road that our campground is on has any flag other than the American flag. There is nothing we can do about cell service in our area. We are in rural Indiana, we have a safe, quiet campground on the Blue River and are proud to offer an off-grid experience to those looking to get away. I am glad you did not have a bad experience at our campground despite the thumbs down review.
