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 recommend the most 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!

Fallen Tree Campground

8 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents7 acres · Albion, IN
Fallen Tree Campground is located directly next to Chain O’Lakes State Park, were you can use our complementary day pass to swim, hike, fish, kayak, etc.! Your space has access to a shared bathroom, shower, kitchen, dining room, living room, and outside fire pit. Be sure to grab a coffee or a hot tea and walk our beautifully lit trails that will give you a sense of peace and maybe a bit of magic. The campground covers 7 acres and is partially wooded with some mature trees and lots of young forest. We are working hard to turn it all back into native land, one tree at a time. Fallen Tree also has chickens and geese! We would love to introduce you to all of our feathered friends. There are several designated camping areas, a driveway for car campers, a tiny house, and a converted school bus [skoolie]. We are flexible with our hosting.

Country Bungalow

1 site · Lodging1 acre · Fort Wayne, IN
We bought this one acre property tucked in the corner of the woods a little more than 2 years ago from the family who built it and lived here for 69 years. It was all original since 1946! The dairy and the farmland around us has been family-owned for over 100 years! Our little acre has become a sweet little hidden secret to all who visit. Quiet and beautiful, yet close to all the quaintness Fort Wayne has to offer. The sunrises are amazing! For nature lovers, there are so many different birds that frequent our trees, even an occasional Bald Eagle! We have renovated the tiny shed into an occasional repurpose shop and now are opening it up for a comfortable glamping spot! We continue to work on renovating our home to eventually welcome more guests. We feel like God saved this sweet spot just for us, so we can't help but share it with others! We hope all who stay, feel the same!

Camping near Fort Wayne guide

Overview

Fort Wayne is one of Indiana’s largest cities. In an hour’s drive, the concrete jungle gives way to forests, lakes, and plains. Here, you can camp among the trees, paddle water trails, and hike rolling hills. Prefer to stay close to downtown? Camp on the St. Joseph River at the Johnny Appleseed Campground. Or, stay connected at a private RV park with Wi-Fi and full hookups. In-town camping areas offer access to 100 miles of family-friendly trails. During the summer, cool off at one of the lakes near Fort Wayne. At Chain O’ Lakes State Park, book a cabin or one of 200+ campsites. Near Garrett, the family-friendly Bixler Lake Park is ideal for fishing and swimming. Watch wildlife from your tent camping site at Salamonie Lake. The best time for camping in Fort Wayne is from spring to fall. The warm summers are ideal for swimming; fall brings stunning colors. Winters are cold—book an RV site or camping cabin to stay warm.
