Tent camping in Sleepy Hollow
The park has 12 sites with electricity this and 24 sites without electricity . Primitive camping and primitive camping with electricity are for tents only and pop-ups must go into the RV sites. Alcohol is not allowed in the park so be sure that cooler only has non-alcoholic drinks and food.

Like last year there will be a charge for all camping . You will need a paid reservation. Please make your reservation on this website and pay for it with a credit card when making the reservation. (IF YOU DON'T USE CREDIT CARDS, PLEASE CALL SO WE CAN DISCUSS HOW YOU MAY USE OUR CAMPING FACILITIES.) The charge is not just for the site but will be for each tent you plan to have. (Ex. two tents on a site will double your charges.)Choose what you need and it will show you the charges. Please call 812-338-3846 if you have trouble with your reservation. After your reservation is made, there will not be a refund so be sure you have your dates correct. In case of emergency you will be given the option of other open dates instead of a refund--but only if you call prior to arrival time of 2pm.

The park is open at 8:00 AM Eastern Daylight Savings Time and closes at 8:30PM Eastern Daylight Savings time. You may check in after 2PM but you must arrive before 8:30 PM because after that the park will be locked but those inside will have the code number to come and go if they have a need. You need to depart prior to 2 PM on date that you plan to leave.

Firepits are already made but you may bring a grill if you prefer . Keep in mind that there are times that the making of any fire may be prohibited due to dry weather.

When you arrive with a reservation proceed into the park and find your numbered spot (number you reserved will be on post near the table) in either Camp Granada, Camp Timberlake, Camp Run-A-Muk, Sleepy Hollow, Camp White Bridge, Camp Little Blue or Camp Deer Lake. Your name will not be on the site so be sure you know what site you reserved. After you are sure you have the right location, you may go ahead with your setup without checking with anyone. A park attendant will come around and verify your reservation and provide you with a copy of the park procedures and a park map. The attendant will find you.

Port-a-potties are scattered throughout the park but modern restrooms and showers are available.
