Fall camp in our Camping Cabin. It's a full sized Cabin with a queen sized bed, a couch and a heater. It's spray foam insulated so you can stay comfortable year round. - Voted best Hipcamp in Indiana to visit for 5 years. - Listed on Rachael Ray Magazine's "8 of America's Coolest Campgrounds" We offer a "Camping Cabin", The "Cozy Camping Cottage" or tent camping in Black Walnut Grove, in an open field, in the woods, or a shady grove. We like to interact with people or you can keep to yourself and have a quiet getaway in the woods. Sorry, but the tree house isn't available to rent since it is my home. I may rent it out in the future. Also in progress is the "Dome" We are on a solar powered, off the grid 30 acre homestead that has 24 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. We welcome pets for camping, but no pets allow in the Camping Cabin. Also be aware that we have 2 friendly dogs on the land that roam freely. - 3.5 miles to Marengo Cave - 7 miles to the Blue River (canoes, rafting and swimming) - 30 minutes to Patoka Lake - 37 miles west of Louisville - 13 miles north of Interstate 64

Black Walnut Grove at Happy Hollow
Kerry was very kind and accommodating! The land was very nice and clean, and so were the outhouses. Maynard (the big dog) kept watch on our tent all night and hung out with us until we left in the morning. Great experience and we’re definitely coming back when the weather warms up!

Cozy Camping Cottage
I would stay here again. I stayed in the cozy cottage with my ten year old. It was definitely cozy. Although it’s not insulated, we stayed warm and comfortable when the temp was in the 40s. The bathroom and shower facilities were nice. The entire property was quiet and isolated with lots of space to walk and explore. The tent camping areas looked flat and way better than some hipcamp offerings.

Cozy Camping Cottage
Awesome little spot
Beautiful grounds and spacious campsite, the other sites on the property are far away and out of view. Kerry is a very welcoming guy and helped us out with everything we needed. This little valley is amazing and we'll be back again.

Autumn Joy
Camping spot was huge, had room for our SUV and large tent and then some. Loved walking the land in the fall, the trees were beautiful with all kinds of hues of golden yellow, red and bright orange. The rope web was so much fun! Loved laying down looking up at the colorful leaves. All in all a great experience.
