Indiana's best keep secret - The Love Shack - nestled down a long lane in between 2 fields in rural Economy Indiana. Plenty of space for tents/rvs. This place was built by my late grandfather, Tom Bond. He loved to fish, and tinker and this was a place for his grandkids to stay out of trouble. No water or electric are available. All proceeds go straight back into the property to make improvements. Follow us on social media.
Primitive - tent or RV camping only.
Shack is only used for storage - there are covered areas you can take shelter under in case of poor weather.
Bathroom consists of "outhouse." TP provided.
No water or electricity- bring your own water.
Fish CATCH & RELEASE only!!!!Two picnic tables are included and numerous plastic chairs to sit in.One campfire ring (please do not put trash in rings) No firewood is provided - please bring your own. Do not cut any of my trees down or go foraging - backside of pond is a wetland and private & protected property. Several docks around the pond to fish from - use at your own risk.
There are no dedicated "walking trails," but you can walk around the backside of the one pond (we keep it mowed) and wander down the long lane.No official "cooking area" - bring a grill, cooking stove or cook over the fire. Please do not cook under any roof!
Please pack all your trash out. We don't have trash pick up here. All dog/animals feces can be flung in the field! Farmers will appreciate the fertilizer!
Lots of big catfish & bluegill - see our F B page for videos of the fish being fed! If you're done fishing for the night or don't fish, feel free to give them a scoop of food (one only please, food is expensive)! It's fun to watch them! All food is stored in containers in shack (just be sure to put the scoop back!) They prefer to eat in the morning or early evening.

The vibe at The Love Shack Primitive Gem
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
This is a great spot for a quick weekend escape from the city. The shack itself is super cute and the surrounding farmland is so peaceful and serene. We loved hearing the sounds of nature, the stars at night, and letting our two dogs freely explore the pond and surround areas. We will absolutely be back - next time when it’s warmer!
We loved staying at this location! It was definitely a unique and rustic vibe and we totally LOVED that. We enjoyed spending time looking at all of the decor and vintage items that the hosts have collected-you can tell that they have put a lot of time into making this place perfect! We really loved how private it was and how it felt like we had the area all to ourselves for miles and miles, just by how it was set up. We also enjoyed walking around the pond and seeing all the property had to offer. We didn't end up fishing, but that was definitely a nice activity to offer that we would love to use in the future if we stay again! :)
