Our sylvan setting at the confluence of Sugar Creek and East Little Sugar has been operated by our family as a place of solitude, river fishing and canoeing for over 100 years*. 'Indians' camped here year-round before Pioneers arrived. During the early-1800s, a stagecoach station on the Cincinnati-Indianapolis line was built on the bluff. (Yes, stagecoaches in Indiana - how even Easterners got around before railroads). During WWII our Camp provided RnR for soldiers, sailors and aviators stationed at the numerous bases and training facilities in and around Indianapolis and throughout Central Indiana. It was our Granddad's Duty Station at 60 and Grandma ran the canteen. 25 miles SE of Indianapolis, Crossroads of America, 90 mi from Cincy via I-74, 100 from L'ville or 200 from Chicago via I-65/465. 4 miles off I-74 Exit 109 at Fairland Rd (Indiana Grand Casino); 8 miles from I-65 Exit 97 at Worthville Rd, Camp Restwood is readily available to travelers on I-74, I-65, I-70 or I-69.

Camp Restwood
Great Camping experience that is j
Restwood camp is a quiet natural gem near Indy. Our two Golden Retriever water-dogs absolutely LOVED playing in Sugar Creek. They got to run and we got to relax in peace, especially in our hammock on the edge of the creek listening to the babbling brook nearby. No sound machine was needed on this trip. The hosts also have kayaks and canoes to rent. The hosts were incredible. They provided us with firewood and even set it up in the fire pit for our first night’s campfire. They have a clean port-a-potty, access to grill if needed and they even had solar panels if you needed them.. This is “primitive” camping with no electricity or water hook-up but there is access to non-drinkable water, which we used for a solar shower and sink. With a portable generator we could easily consider our set-up as “glamping” in a natural setting and having peaceful quiet, which was so needed by this teacher’s start to summer vacation. The pictures don’t even do this place justice for the beautiful, tranquility that it offers. If you want to get back to nature but also be close to home, check this place out. A bonus is that you are only 25 minutes from a Walmart in case you need one. (Leaky air mattress 🤪)
