Old Barn inside an Industrial Park

3 sites · RVs, Tents1 acres · Evansville, IN
Learn more about this land: Our spot is not far off 64 and close to 69. It's a late 1800's farmhouse with an antique barn situated in the middle of an industrial park, so it is loud during the day. Since we've added a gravel parking lot for barn concerts, there are just a few camping spots. Vehicles are welcome. We usually have a portajohn. You can sit around a fire on our property and look at the stars by night (when there's not a fire ban). The Blue Grass Fish and Wildlife Area is a just a bit up the road. You could ride your bikes there, kayak, canoe, fish, etc.

The best camping near Red Hills State Park guide

Overview

About

The views are panoramic from the top of Red Hills, the highest point of land between St. Louis and Cincinnati. The sparkling 40-acre Red Hills Lake provides campers with excellent boating and fishing in warm months. Winter brings ice fishing and ice-skating. Lawrence County locals love the shaded picnic areas at this carefully preserved and maintained state park.

Red Hills boasts 967 acres of high wooded hills at its 515-foot elevation. Deep ravines, verdant meadows, and year-round springs give hikers, bikers and horseback riders plenty to explore. Eight miles of scenic trails of moderate difficulty wind through the park. The best hiking trails are found on the park's north side.

The peaceful Red Hills campground features more than 100 campsites. Class A campers enjoy electricity, a dump station, water, and a modern building with showers and flush toilets. There's a primitive tent camping area, a rent-a-camp cabin, an equestrian campground and a youth group tent camping area.
