All campsites are now reservable, so reservations are recommended. Campsites not reserved are available on a “first-come first-served” basis, but you cannot count on their availability, especially during the summer.
On holiday weekends campers are required to reserve three nights. For all major holidays within the reservation season, if the holiday is on a Friday the required stay will be Thursday through Saturday. If the holiday falls on a Monday the required minimum stay will be Friday through Sunday. If the holiday falls on a weekday it will just be a regular one night minimum stay.
You must arrive by 2pm on the second day of your reservation or your reserved site will be cancelled.
The park does not give refunds for unused days. Reservations are transferable to other people or to other dates with seven days prior notice. Reservations may not be transferred to dates outside the reservation season at the property requested.
Many family pets do not seem to enjoy the camping experience nearly as much as their humans. The unfamiliarity and confusion of a busy campground and being constantly on a leash seem to upset some animals. Excessive noise and not cleaning up after pets leads to many complaints from other campers. Campers are responsible for their pets at all times. Do not leave them unattended. Pets must be on a leash 6 feet or less, in length.
Each site is outfitted with one picnic table. Borrowing tables from other sites is not allowed and creates discord when they must be retrieved for the site from which they were taken.
Reducing congestion and visitor safety are the reasons for the “one mode of transportation per site” rule. Additional vehicles must be parked in designated campground parking lots.
Six people is the maximum number allowed at a campsite. Each site may have two tents or one camper and one small tent.
Alcohol is strictly forbidden in the youth camps. At other properties, both daily visitors and campers are asked to be responsible when drinking alcohol. Possession of alcohol by persons under the age of 21 is against the law in Indiana, and this will be enforced.
Quiet hours are from 11pm until 6am. At night, voices carry so moderation is essential. Generators or other similar equipment which produces noise may only be in operation from 6am until 11pm.
Check-out time is 2pm Monday through Saturday and 5pm on Sunday and holidays. If you plan to renew your registration, please do so by 10am.
Nails and wires for suspending lanterns and patio lights can cause serious damage to trees. Burn damage permanently scars or kills trees.
Fires may be built only in the fire rings provided. Collecting firewood in state parks is prohibited. Firewood is for sale at the park concession or campground store.
Day visitors are welcome. They must park in the campground parking lot and may walk to your campsite. Campground hours are 7am until 11pm each day.
At least one person at the campsite must be 18 years old. The responsible party registering for the campsite shall remain at the site for the entire stay.
Maximum length of stay is 14 consecutive nights. A minimum of Friday and Saturday, or Saturday and Sunday is required for weekend reservations. You must arrive by 2pm on the second day of your reservation or your reserved site will be cancelled.
May begin after check out time on the first day, and the site must be clear by check out on the last day, except Sunday or Monday of a holiday weekend, when you may stay until 5pm. Campgrounds are closed at 11pm, and no set-up of campsites may occur after midnight.
Campers are requested to renew sites by 10am.
