DNR campgrounds filling up for Labor Day weekend

INDIANAPOLIS – A limited amount of campsites at Indiana state parks and reservoirs remain available for Labor Day weekend, Aug. 30 through Sept. 2.

Last-minute planners should make reservations soon before the campgrounds are booked to capacity.

Properties with sites left are: Charlestown, Clifty Falls (non-electric only), Lincoln (non-electric and primitive only), McCormick’s Creek, O’Bannon Woods and Versailles state parks; Lieber State Recreation Area, and Salamonie (primitive only) and Deam lakes.

A three-night minimum stay is required.

Reservations can be made at camp.IN.gov or 1-866-6CAMPIN (1-866-622-6746).

Not a camper? Consider a day trip for hiking, a family gathering or a swim. Check ahead with your destination for availability of swimming and hours of operation.

Remember to make reservations for fall camping. It’s one of the most popular times of year to camp.

“October has become like the busy month of July for our parks and reservoirs,” said Christie Wilmoth of the DNR Division of State Parks & Reservoirs.

“With so much to see and do at our Halloween and fall festival weekends, you won’t want to miss out on all of the activities we have planned.”

Information on state parks and reservoirs is at stateparks.IN.gov. Information on programs and special events is at InterpretiveServices.IN.gov.
