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 really enjoyed our stay at Walnut Valley Realm. The host sent a trail map ahead of time that was easy to follow. The trails themselves were so beautiful and secluded. The electric sites are close to a somewhat well-traveled road, so if you don’t need power I would recommend the more secluded spots. I would stay here again!

The host Brian was great! He was very welcoming and helpful. It was a good experience for us as first time campers. I look forward to doing it again. We had site 12 which was a good little hideaway. My only critique would be that each site should be more prominently marked. Other than that, I would definitely do it again.

Beautiful acreage. Like a park-clean, well taken of. Camps are far apart. Remote, but well worth the trip.

I only stayed one overnight, but I would definitely recommend it. The site was mowed and clean, the host was helpful, and everything was as described. My dog and I went for a couple mile walk, and I’m sure I only saw a small part of the property.

Site #12. Fairly secluded, and I believe smooth and level enough for a tent. However, I slept in the car, as it was just my dog and me.

Totally private, totally primitive.

Site 10 - The Cul de Sac, was everything I had hoped. Totally private, totally remote, totally primitive. If you want to feel like you’re alone deep in the woods, that’s the site you want. Note the pit toilets are a good ten minute hike. There’s no picnic table, but some stumps that work just fine as surfaces or seats. Really just a fire ring in a clearing in the woods, with no other campsites nearby. Pretty great!

Terrific, as ever. We found even more new places to explore on horseback this time. It seems that every time we go there's more to investigate! Great time.

Perfect little spot next to corn fields and the woods, with a sunset and stargazing for hours! Brian is a great host, super helpful and communicative. We wish we had more time here, but will definitely be back if we‘re ever in Indiana again!
