The Campgrounds feature spaces that accommodate full hook-up and primitive camping. We offer 140 sites on our campus with full seasonal hook-ups (water, electricity and sewer).

Rates for sites requesting a hook-up are $35 per day plus 7% state tax. Any sites using no hook-ups are $30 per day plus 7% state tax. These rates are subject to change.


Our campus operates as a drive-up campgrounds. Reservations are only required during high-volume days (see below) and the Indiana State Fair. If you plan on camping during these dates, even if you're not attending that event, you still must make a reservation.

There are no refunds for cancellations on advance reservations.
