Extra star for friendly staff

There’s a nice selection of camp sites at Wolfe’s. There are also serval amenities like river access, a small playground, and laundry. The staff is very pleasant and the rates aren’t bad.

Well maintained, easy trails

This campground has some unique history between the Battle of Tippecanoe and being home to some Wisconsin Glacier sediment. There’s a Tippecanoe Battlefield Memorial and a nearby museum as well as a nature center. There are a decent portion of fairly easy, well maintained trails. It’s a little buggy but then again when is Indiana not. The trails run along Burnett creek.

Closed

It would seem this campground is no longer operational.

Good for new campers

Spacious sites and accessibly paved drive makes it easy to car camp here. Neat thing about this area is the clear examples of two biomes meeting (tall-grass prairie and eastern deciduous forest). This central forest-grassland transition makes for fairly easy trails that the whole family could participate in. Great bird watching here.

Majority RVs

If you live in West Lafayette and you’re looking to get away… but not too away, then this is a place. Campground is a loose term- it’s got hourly rates. Its got trees and a pool though so who is complaining.

Bring a Telescope

It’s far enough from light pollution that you can see stars clearly!

Well taken care of, lots to do

Whether it’s the ropes course, hiking, biking, fishing, kayaking, or cooking there is always something to do at Lums Pond. This park itself is pretty run of the mill, it’s got some trees and bushes and a water feature.

BEWARE OF HORSES

They ate our pasta salad! Left a closed COOLER alone for thirty (30) seconds and they knocked it over and opened the Tupperware! Evolution at its finest I guess. The hikes are sandy and (on a non windy day) buggy but the water makes up for it. Perfect place to fly a kite by day and make s’mores by night.

Great for all

Neat geological features and water features. More than enough trails to explore and adequate camping. Went in mid-september, probably a little too late in the season it was starting to get too cold at night but the trees were pretty.

It’s like climbing up the down escalator

My calves still hurt from hiking up these massive sand dunes. The view is stunning which makes it feel worth it. The place has a lot of geological history that’s neat to look into. Good place to teach a person how to skip rocks.

Great views— hold onto your hat

My camping partner lost 3 hats here, the wild’ll blow ‘em right over the edge. Worth it. Went in mid-June and the weather was delightful. FRIENDLY and active wildlife near camp sites, store food properly. Went rafting, great scenery at lower part of canyon.
