Overland camping at the 1938 barn

2 sites · RVs, Tents10 acres · Rockville, IN
Large secluded cove near our barn and garden. Watch the sun come up from the orchard. There is 1 electrical plug so not all 3 spaces have electric but you can run a cord. There is also a single water spigot to share as well. There are 2 houses somewhat visible through the trees but no direct line of sight and otherwise private. May see us feeding animals or tending garden. There is also a livestock guardian dog (Cotton) on property, we just ask that you please do not feed her or leave food/trash laying around for her to find.  This is a farm so you may see and smell animals. Depending on when you book you may even be somewhat near animals. Be aware of this and be ready to keep dogs contained. Ask us about purchasing a bag of fresh meat or veggies from our market garden Henrysmarketindiana.com

Camp with Alpacas at Aris Farm

4 sites · RVs, Tents21 acres · Universal, IN
This was once a self sustaining farm built in the 1950s. The farm raised cattle, pigs, chickens. There was 35 tillable acres which produced corn and oats for the livestock. The farm had its own feed grinder in the old barn. There is an old hand built cooler room where all the meat was stored. There are four wells on the farm one of which is used for watering animals and cooling alpacas on hot summer days. One of our tent sites is in the corner of our alpaca pasture. You'll hear the roosters, goats, donkeys and more than likely, Rose, our Maremma livestock guardian dog, throughout your stay.

The best camping near Walnut Point State Park guide

Overview

About

Enjoy tree-lined campsites and trails conveniently located near Interstate 57 and U.S. Highway 36. Boat into one of the many fingerlike coves to find your ideal fishing spot. Hike through 2.25 miles of wooded trails to see abundant wildlife in the forest or near the lake.

Anglers report excellent stocks of bluegill and very good fishing for channel catfish. Set your hook for crappie, bass, and sunfish, as well. Take the keepers back to your campsite for a tasty supper. Fish from your boat or the dock, and have a picnic lunch near the shoreline.

Trek through wooded forests along the nature trails. One part of the trail goes by the lakeshore for a peaceful walk. Springtime brings out bluebells and Dutchman's breeches. Snap photos of the fall foliage in early to mid-October.

Reserve 34 campsites with electrical hook-ups. Another 20 allow for trailers or tents without any utilities. A group campsite works well for youth groups. Most campsites are semi-secluded with trees.
