Peaceful

Peaceful little place but unfortunately it rained but we made the best of it, there’s some secluded spots where you can stay away from others or stay in the more general areas, nice lake to fish and we found a swimming hole for a refreshing dip. This was our first camping trip since moving to Indiana and it sparked a fire can’t wait to checkout all the other parks

Great alternative to Brown County State Park

Yellowwood State Forest is a great area for camping, hiking, fishing, kayaking, etc. It's just a couple minutes drive from the more popular Brown County State Park. I feel like this is still a bit of a hidden gem. Very easily missed, you will drive a few miles off the main road before you even get to the park, then you have a long stretch of gravel road with a several camping options (electric and non-electric sites available). There is a camp office where you can self register, and if you are there when the office is open, you can purchase firewood on site. Huge cart load for $5 or $6. Late fall, winter, and early spring when the nights are a little chilly, you may have the whole place to yourself, unlike Brown County State Park, where there will likely still be some campers scattered about.
