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

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 Greene-Sullivan State Forest guide

Overview

About

Imagine a land of hundreds of serene lakes, mirroring gorgeous woodlands, hills to steer your steed upon, and meadows with mushrooms ripe for picking. This land exists. Look no further than Green-Sullivan State Forest, the gem of Indiana. If you don’t already fish, you might want to change your ways before hitting this park—there are so many lakes that host a variety of fish. Hunting for deer, turkey, squirrel, fox, and raccoon are popular here as well, so make sure you rock orange. Picnic tables and shelters are up for grabs for day use and there is even an archery range to try your aim. You will likely want to stay more than a day, in which case primitive and horse campsites are available on a first come first serve basis. Fifteen cabins are also available to rent year round for more cozy vibes!
