    Yellowwood State Forest is a gem tucked away in the rolling hills of southern Indiana, just a short drive from the artist haven of Nashville. This place is perfect for those who love a mix of primitive camping and outdoor activities. With 79 campsites spread across four areas—Red Pine, White-Oak Hickory, Redbud, and Black Gum—there's plenty of space to find your own little slice of nature.

    The campsites are basic but well-maintained, featuring picnic tables and fire rings. Vault toilets are available, and there are several potable water stations scattered throughout. If you're into fishing, you'll love the short trails from many campsites leading right to the lake's edge. Night fishing by a cozy campfire? Yes, please.

    For those who enjoy a bit of adventure, the forest offers five hiking trails ranging from easy to rugged. You can also rent john boats and kayaks on the weekends, making it easy to explore Yellowwood Lake. Just a heads-up, the camp store and forest office are closed during the week, so plan accordingly.

    Pets are welcome, and the area is big rig friendly, though some visitors have noted that maneuvering larger trailers can be a bit tight. The campground operates on a first-come, first-served basis and is cash-only, so come prepared.

    Whether you're here for the hiking, fishing, or just to escape the hustle and bustle, Yellowwood State Forest offers a peaceful and secluded retreat. The beautiful scenery, from the lush woodlands to the serene lake, makes it a fantastic spot to unwind and reconnect with nature.

    The Charles C. Deam Wilderness offers 36 miles of trails for hiking, backpacking, and horse riding through scenic hardwood forest and varied terrain with views of nearby Monroe Lake. The area was designated a wilderness in 1982 and encompasses nearly 12,953 acres of the Hoosier National Forest. Wilderness designation places this area in a special legal status (subject to the 1964 Wilderness Act). It is managed to preserve a natural condition and provide opportunities for solitude. Since its designation as a wilderness, visitor use in the area increased to a point that significant damage was occurring. Special restrictions are in place to protect the wilderness character. Visitors to this special place are asked to follow these restrictions to lessen your impact and share responsibility in preserving this unique natural resource.
