New Book Release – Camping Across Indiana
May 1 @ 12:00 am - December 31 @ 11:30 pm EDT| $9.99
Join us on our first summer of exploring Indiana’s myriad destinations by camper. Visit the World’s Largest Paintball, a sunken garden, and stroll across the mighty Ohio River. Using Indiana State Park campgrounds as a base camp we day trip to many intriguing destinations across the Hoosier State. Looking for some interesting road trips? Use this informative tourism guide to plan your own Indiana road trip adventure. Even if you don’t camp, you can still enjoy the road trips.
Indiana has a wealth of both private and public campgrounds. Our preference is for Indiana Department of Natural Resources campgrounds like state parks, recreation areas and state forests.
Our first summer included visits to wonderful local parks, intriguing museums, historic forts and a stroll across the Ohio River on a repurposed railroad bridge. We camped in the snow at Brown County and marveled at the World’s Largest Paintball. At the Minnestria in Muncie the Bob Ross Museum features the studio where his PBS TV series was filmed and in Fort Wayne we found the home of Chief Richardville, a Miami Indian Chief who was at one time the richest man in Indiana.
Bison, Fire Towers and Snow
At Ouabache State Park a herd of 20 bison roam over a 20-acre prairie where you can observe them from the 110 foot fire tower. We woke up to a fresh blanket of snow at Brown County and wandered through historic log stockade Fort Vallonia and Fort Wayne.
