Across the state of Indiana, you’ll discover an abundance of excellent RV campsites just waiting for you to pull up, set up camp, and stay the night. Camping in an RV provides the getaway you’re looking for, all while offering the comforts of a kitchen, a cozy place to sleep, and more. Here are five awesome campsites in Indiana.
If you are looking for some place that is more than just an RV campground, head on down to southern Indiana to Thousand Trails’ Horseshoe Lakes. The area is over 290 acres and boasts a family-friendly atmosphere with the charm of a true campground. Situated on spring-fed lakes, Horseshoe Lakes has 11 lakes to fish in! If fishing isn’t your passion, there are other activities to do as well. Try your hand at a game of shuffleboard or mini golf. There is also a swimming pool, playground, volleyball and basketball! It’s fun for the whole family.
France Park is Logansport’s hidden gem RV campsite. With over 200 campsites, there is something for everyone when you camp at France Park. One hundred and thirty sites have electricity and water hook-ups. Pets are allowed if they remain on a leash. There are shower houses available, and several playgrounds as well. The area itself is beautiful. With scenic trails to a breathtaking waterfall and picture perfect cliffs, there is no shortage of scenery to be found. There is also a designated fishing lake, and the Old Kenith Depot Store that has all your camping needs! Have you ever wanted to scuba dive? France Park is THE dive site in Indiana. The waters are crystal clear and there are plenty of fish to be found. For those of you that love Frisbee golf, you’ll be delighted to find 24 spots to play!
Welcome to Timberline Valley RV Resort, another one of Indiana’s premier camping resorts! Though it is only a few miles away from I-69, it feels as though you’ve left the city and entered an entirely remote part of Indiana. Timberline Valley is made up of 80 beautiful and scenic acres, and has a country-like feel to it. What makes this spot a bit different compared to other areas of camping is that Timberline Valley offers a 3.5-acre lake with a beach! The beach isn’t large by any means, but it certainly reminds you of being up at Indiana Dunes! Timberline Valley is for families and couples alike, and offers 95 RV sites. Each site includes a picnic table and fire pit. Not far from Timberline Valley is the Indianapolis Speedway, and be sure to visit Fairmount, Indiana, during their annual James Dean festival!
