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.
It would seem this campground is no longer operational.
Spacious sites and easily accessible and 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.
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.
It’s far enough from light pollution that you can see stars clearly!
Indiana State Fair ground is a host to activities like fairs or live music.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
