This listing is for the Cozy Camping Cottage, Skip the tent setup!. Just pull in and you'll be ready for camping in our micro cottage. 

No tent needed! We have built a small building just for sleeping in. It's 4 foot tall, 4 foot wide and 8 feet long. It has windows and doors so you can just pull in and be setup in a matter of seconds. It's off the ground has plenty of windows and a big door with a screen so you can stay cool and dry in any weather. It's in a prime location that is close to the outhouse, shower house and Tree Web and has it's own small yard in front of it with a fire pit. 2 people can fit in the Cozy Camping Cottage but if you want to have more people they can camp next to your site. You can add them here or book through the Black Walnut Grove listing. It is the same either way you do it.

The Cozy Camping Cottage requires you bring your own bedding (There is a mattress with a waterproof cover on it). Anything full sized or bigger will work.Kids are people too - Please include all people when booking your site.

We are on a solar powered, off the grid, 60 acre homestead that has 54 acres of wooded land and 6 acres of groomed land. Come explore our land and relax in the "Tree Web", see the 2 story tree house that I live in, have fun on the tire swing, or just sit and enjoy all that nature has to offer. You can explore our interesting topography that has close to  100 foot of elevation changes, our (mostly) dry creek system that starts with 2 springs that drain into 3 sinkholes or walk 3 miles of trails (if you follow each trail from end to end). 

We love groups - Host your event here or have a group gathering with all your friends and family. We have spaces large enough to host hundreds of people. 

- 3.5 miles to Marengo Cave

- 7 miles to the Blue River (canoes, rafting and swimming)

- 30 minutes to Pataka Lake

- 37 miles west of Louisville

- 13 miles north of Interstate 64

Please look at our Black Walnut Grove listing for  pictures and descriptions of the entire property.

We love Happy Hollow and the Cozy Cottage is a favorite of my kids! 3 kids (8-10) were able to sleep in the cottage while the rest of us slept in tents. The spider web is so much fun, especially at night with the fairy lights! Kerry is an awesome, super friendly host. This was our second visit and we will definitely be back!

The Cozy Camping Cottage proved a lovely, convenient camp during a very rainy week in Indiana. I kept my tent packed and stayed above the wet leaves & dirt in the rain-proof cottage. Groovy outhouse and a shower under arboreal canopy. The sun emerged the next morning and persuaded me to linger through noon.

This place was great! By far my favorite place I’ve ever camped. The kids had a blast in the tree nest and exploring the property. Kerry is such a great host and just a really nice guy with some cool stories.

I had a wonderful stay at the Cozy Camping Cottage at Happy Hollow, and would definitely recommend this Hip Camp (and would stay again in the future!) Kerry was a wonderful host. Friendly and helpful with anything needed. The land is beautiful. The cottage itself was a comfy stay for the night. The outdoor shower was awesome (taking a hot shower in the morning was so nice!) And the outhouse felt fancy with a sink/lights/mirror. The tree net is a super cool feature. It's literally down the road from Marengo Cave - so that was a nice little side adventure to have easy access to. One thing to note - I have AT&T cell service, and didn't get reception out there - so if you're directionally challenged and rely on GPS - I'd recommend screen shot the directions while you have service!

The property was perfectly situated up in the hills. Heavily wooded which made for cool relaxing atmosphere. Kerry was very and welcoming, making sure we felt at home. The grounds are well maintained with lots to explore. Be aware, unless you have verizon, you will have no cell signal anywhere in or around the area. It turned out to be a pleasant escape to be fully unplugged. We will definitely be back!
