  After May 15, no dates will be changed on a reservation except for extreme emergencies (Sorry weather is not an extreme emergency.) The no refund policy will still apply.  We have been happy to change dates during this recent bad weather but feel that after May 15 we will change dates only for emergencies for the rest of this camping year through October 31, 2017.  We believe everyone knows what an emergency could include.

The Playhouse is now open at the old location but may be closed later in summer to be moved to a higher location.  Please do not enter the school house or town hall until further notice. The school house will be ready soon at the old location also.  However, we are still trying to replace the books lost in the storm.  If you have children's books that you no longer have anyone to use, we would be happy to accept them at the office for use in the school house AND PROVIDE A DONATION SLIP to be used against your taxes.

The town hall is off the foundation and is definitely unsafe. Your cooperation is appreciated. 

The playground near the Bluffs was swept away in the flood  but another small playground has been installed nearer the shelterhouse in an area that has not flooded in the past. We will not be putting a playground where the old one was standing.

Other than the above the park is open and all of the shelter houses will be ready for use and they are all reserved so please come and have a good time.  Thank you

If you are in a shelter house and want to change to another you must check with the office or an attendent as shelter houses are booked on line constantly and you might have to move if someone comes in with a reservation.

The floods north of us have not affected us so the park is open and hope you can come and play. 

YOU CAN MAKE RESERVATIONS ON LINE OR BY CALLING THE OFFICE EVEN IF IT THE SAME DAY YOU WANT TO ARRIVE, UNTIL ALL SITES ARE TAKEN.(In the past you had to reserve two days before arrival date). We will not be taking reservations for 2018 at this time.  Watch this space for when 2018 will be available for making reservations.

In making reservations be sure you have your dates correct and are sure you can come on the dates you are scheduling as we cannot refund.  Yes, Fido (or your dog), may come with you but must be leashed at all times and we ask that you always pick up after your pet.

You can now make reservations for 1 to 4 sites on one reservations but must pay for them with one credit card number.  When you begin a reservation, you have one hour to complete it before the sites go back into inventory and you would have to begin again.  Whitsitt Woods is completed and reservations will be taken on line, as well as for all other camping.

We are in the Eastern Time Zone so will always follow that change to and from Daylight Savings Time.

The wedding chapel is beautiful and ready for use.  At the present time it will be available from March 1, 2017 through November 15, 2017.  You will need to call for reservations for the chapel and there is a charge for weddings held in the chapel.  The chapel can be used for services for a donation(used for upkeep) and again you would need to call 812-338-3846.

We remain a no alcohol park so please leave the alcoholic beverages at home.  There is no fee for entrance to the park or for use of the shelterhouses.  Reservations for the shelterhouses are recommended and most can be reserved on line.

Halloween in the Park on October 14, 2017.  Watch this site for further information.
