Please do your part to make sure everyone has a safe and enjoyable camping
- Pets - 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,
- Tables - 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.
- Vehicles - 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.
- Number of people/tents per site - 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 11 p.m. until 6 a.m. At night, voices
carry so moderation is essential. Generators or other similar equipment
which produces noise may only be in operation from 6 a.m. until 11:00
- Check-out time is 2 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 5 p.m.
on Sunday and holidays. If you plan to renew your registration, please
do so by 10 a.m.
- Nails and wires for suspending lanterns and patio lights can
cause serious damage to trees. Burn damage permanently scars or kills
- Fires and firewood - 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.
- Visitors to your site - Day visitors are welcome. They must
park in the campground parking lot and may walk to your campsite. Campground
hours are 7:00 a.m. until 11:00 p.m. each day.
- Age of campers - 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.
- Length of 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 2 p.m. on the second day
of your reservation or your reserved site will be cancelled.
- Setup of campsite 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 5:00
p.m. Campgrounds are closed at 11 p.m., and no set-up of campsites may
occur after midnight.
