Celtic Glen Farm Stay

9 sites 路 Lodging, RVs, Tents100 acres 路 Spencer, IN
Celtic Glen is a working, family farm of heritage breed livestock, nestled in an old limestone quarry on the banks of the White River. We are across the river from McCormick's Creek State Park (Indiana's first state park) and just two miles north of Spencer, a small town with an excellent brew pub, winery, cafe, and more. We are just 20 minutes from Bloomington and Indiana University; 48 miles from Indianapolis Int'l Airport. This is a working farm with lots of livestock, electric fences, and working dogs, so please leave the farm animals alone unless someone from the farm is available and present. Given the above features of a working livestock farm, the quarry ruins, the operative railroad tracks, and the river (not suitable for swimming), children under the age of 18 must be attended by adults at all times.
