The Fun Farm

2 sites · RVs, Tents25 acres · Fort Wayne, IN
Learn more about this land: Our location is also home to our fantasy destination, The Fun Farm. Not only is the scenery replete with natural beauty - the pond, the fields, the sledding hill, the nature trail through the forest - but also a setting to engage the imagination!   Additional services may be arranged on-site. For example, who would you like to have breakfast with? A superhero? A princess? Or perhaps a souvenir caricature of you and your group is in order to commemorate the experience? Maybe an experiential art, dance, drama or music lesson? Guided tours of the grounds can also be arranged to learn more about the history of the farm and it's originality. If you're interested in a "day trip" or even a limited event, we have the facilities to accommodate your birthday or holiday, engage in art Classes, raise funds for your good cause or enjoy "something different" for this year's corporate party. We're also open to your ideas for a custom school, festival or carnival event. We can accommodate groups from 1 to 400 (maybe more, if we send a few enchanted creatures on vacation!) MORE NOTES ABOUT THE CAMPSITE: We're flexible with wherever you would like to pitch your tent, but the spots we have established are next to our cabin (where the lighting is best and the ground is flattest.) Parking is most easily found next to these sites as well (and the lighting is also excellent.)  Also, in the near vicinity, a shared firepit is readily available and can accommodate at least 12 people. Check out the additional options (like firewood bundles) below and let us know how we can help you make great memories!

Beach camping in Indiana guide

Overview

Indiana has just three miles of Great Lakes shoreline, but what it lacks in length, it makes up for in glorious views. The headline act for summer vacationers is the Indiana Dunes State Park, where campers can pitch a tent or park their RV right by the beachside and enjoy swimming, bird-watching, and water sports along the lake. Inland, there are also sandy shores to be enjoyed at Pokagon State Park and Monroe Lake, where fishing, paddling, and lakeside camping draw campers from spring through fall. Snow falls along the shores of Lake Michigan from November through March, but RV campers will still find a few campgrounds open for business, and the beachside hiking trails transform into snowshoeing and cross-country skiing trails through the winter season.
