A place of spirit and beauty, Buck Creek Sanctuary is a 58-acre botanical, wildlife, and human sanctuary located on Buck Creek in Harrison County, Indiana, just 40 minutes from Louisville. BCS is a permaculture demonstration educational farm.  We also are a member of the United Plant Savers Botanical Sanctuary Network.   Native and medicinal wildflowers grow among the oak hardwood forest and eastern red cedar groves. Beautiful Buck Creek flows along the eastern edge of the property and is perfect for wading or relaxing. Hiking trails meander through the gently rolling hills. Backcountry campsites are private and secluded.

This site is designed for camper, trailer, or car camping.  The gravel lot is convenient to the facilities  but just a short walk to the creek, and easy access to hiking trails.

A great spot with plenty of room to set-up and enjoy nature. This is the second time we've stayed here. We loved walking down to the creek and dipping our toes in on a hot day. The gravel spot by the barn was great for van camping and opens out onto mowed paths that wind through the property. Great hosts, thanks!

Staying at Buck Creek Sanctuary was amazing. Ken is a great host and made me feel right at home. My campsite was absolutely beautiful, serene and quiet. I had no one around me accept any little woodland critters like ducks, beavers etc🙂 It felt completely safe and private. I had an awesome experience and would definitely recommend.

Ken's place was beautiful and quiet. Camp areas were cleared and the ground was even and soft for tent camping.
Ken was also a gracious host, making sure everything was ok, telling us about the creek and paths, and even helping get a stuck vehicle out!
I'd love to go back when I have more time to explore the trails and creek

Cooling off at the creek

Ken was a great host who went above and beyond to make our stay great, before and during the trip.

The campsite was absolutely beautiful. It was secluded, right on the river with the sounds of bull frogs, wild turkeys and many birds, bugs and and other wild life to enjoy. The property was peaceful and we enjoyed hiking and exploring the land when feeling adventurous and relaxing by the fire and enjoying the quiet in downtown. We can’t wait to come again and plan on making the trip an an annual one. Just a tip, site 4 is worth the hike!
