[This site is in Bloomington, IN, near Lake Monroe, not in Brown County, which is where our other campsite is, for some reason Hipcamp isn't allowing me to have two separate addresses.]

Temporarily for day use only!   

Wildlife watchers, bikers, hikers, passer throughers, hammockers, all the doers are welcome.

This site sits on 11 acres with a western finger of Lake Monroe just less than a mile walk away! The main attraction of this site is that there is a 35x15 foot parking space at the top of the hill along the roadside (it is a dead end road with the lake at the end), which provides plenty of space to park a camper, boat trailer, van, or 2 vehicles. It is a level graveled space with the road on the one side and then 11 acres on the other! The property itself does head into a valley and stream that leads to Lake Monroe therefore it isn't the flattest area, however I am sure it is still possible to hammock and enjoy a spot close to the lake. 

This site is best suited to those who need a spot to park and hang out while accessing the lake. The closest put in for the lake (less than a mile) has the coordinates 39.05485, -86.48204. Just put that in your GPS and it'll bring you to the put in. 

Throughout the 11 acres there are some trails, or you're welcome to make your own. You need to test out a new bike, kayak, canoe, train a dog, mushroom hunt, or otherwise? This is the spot! There is a house on the same property and assuming there aren't any renters in it, you will be able to use the porch and firepit. 

While at our property you would be about 15 minutes from downtown Bloomington, 7 minutes from Bloomington Speedway, 5 minutes from Fourwinds Lakeside Inn/Marina, 3 minutes from a gas station, and 1 minute (25 min walk maybe) to a boat ramp/lakeside of Lake Monroe. If you want to determine via map where you'd be entering the lake from just search Fourwinds and that will give you an idea.

As the property is "wild," I welcome our guest's to leave their mark by building up natural sites to hang about in. 

Contact me if you have any questions or ideas as to how I can help host you! 

Payment will be for the time of 10am-7pm
