Best in Indiana: 1st place
Named one of the best Hipcamps to visit in 2023.
We now have 3 buildings for rent. The Cozy Camping Cottage, the Camping Cabin and the newest addition is our A-frame which is the most secluded spot on the land. - Voted best Hipcamp in Indiana to visit for 6 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

Cozy Camping Cottage
Happy Camper at the Happy Hollow!
I loved camping at the Happy Homestead! Kerry was very friendly & made sure we were comfortable. The land was clean, fun for exploring, and the amount of frogs was sick! The shower water can be heated & the bathroom was clean. We bought maple syrup and it was delicious! The tree net was fun to hang in too. Will be going here again.

Loved camping at Kerry’s place. Lots of acres of woods and plenty of shade for the campsite. We appreciate the hospitality Kerry. Hope to be back soon.

Very cool spot! The land had a bunch of little things to explore. Kerry is a cool person to meet and talk to! The whole place just had a really good vibe about it. Would definitely come back if I’m in the area again!

Delightful
Absolutely GORGEOUS tent camping area. It’s so lush and all the trees provide infinite hammock arrangements and plenty of shade. Kerry was a perfect host!

Cozy Camping Cottage
The cozy camping cottage was lovely and the site was beautiful! My family spent Father's day weekend enjoying nature! There was a number of friendly dogs that visited our site. And although there were a number of other Campers, it felt like we have the land to ourselves!
