We are very excited to announce the opening of two new outdoor heated swimming pools in 2018. The pools are located next to a brand new log building which has heated bathrooms, heated showers, changing rooms and a snack bar. It also has a state-of-the-art Ultraviolet (UV) sterilization system which means the best water quality, clarity, and healthy swimming environment for your family. An ADA lift is also available. A large underground Storm/Tornado Shelter is located in the basement of the pool bathhouse.
Spring and fall camping is better with an indoor pool when it’s too cold to swim outside in the pond or in the outdoor pools. The indoor swimming pool has separate bathrooms and locker rooms for changing and showering before entering the pool. It also has a state-of-the-art Ultraviolet (UV) sterilization system which means the best water quality, clarity, and healthy swimming environment for your family. An ADA lift is also available. The pool opens at 9:00 a.m. with an adult swim from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. (Monday-Friday only). Open swim for kids starts at 10:00 a.m. and closes 30 minutes prior to the store closing.
The swimming pond features two beaches and is full of fun inflatable toys. A shallow area with small inflatables is designated for younger kids.
The fishing lake is stocked with bluegills, bass, crappie, and perch. Rent a rowboat, canoe or kayak and get out to the hot fishing spots or just enjoy a relaxing day on the lake. A fishing license is not required.
Kids of all ages love the turns, rollers, dips, bumps, and drops of the BMX Track.
Helmets are required for the BMX track and are available for rent at the camp office for $1 per day.
Check out the new Single Track Mountain Bike Trail. The entrance is on the way to the two Bark Parks and BMX track. This half-mile trail has plenty of turns, rollers, dips, and drops.
Helmets are required for the mountain bike trail and are available for rent at the camp office for $1 per day.
Watch a movie under the stars (weather permitting) or in the Poolvilion by the outdoor pools. Occasionally we will be showing movies starting at dusk. Check your weekend activity schedule for details. Bring your blanket and sit on the hill over-looking the swimming pond and view the movie on the large screen. Our natural outdoor amphitheater is a perfect way to watch a movie and you’ll love the outdoor sound system. Popcorn, candy, and drinks are available at the store and snack bar.
In 2008 Indian Trails adopted the 357-acre Waterfowl Production Area (WPA) in collaboration with the US Fish and Wildlife Service. While a WPA is managed primarily for ducks and geese, it also provides habitat for a variety of other wildlife species such as non-game grassland birds, shorebirds, wading birds, mink, muskrat, wild turkey and deer. Trailhead parking areas are located across from the campground on Haynes Road. Trails are for foot traffic only. Bicycles are not allowed. Indian Trails developed the three-mile trail system and maintains the trails and trailhead parking areas. The WPA is open to wildlife observation, hiking, cross-country skiing, nature study, and photography. Dogs must be on a leash except while engaged in hunting during established open seasons.
Take only pictures, leave only footprints!

Have you ever seen a dog smile? If not, just watch one coming out of the bark park!! We are pleased to offer two bark parks. One for the little dogs and one for the big dogs. Each dog park features agility equipment for your pet. The bark parks are a great place to let your dog run off-leash, as pets are required to be on a leash at all times in the rest of the campground. We added and upgraded the dog agility features of both bark parks in 2019.
We care deeply about the safety of our campers. Please make yourself familiar with the locations of the three underground Storm/Tornado Shelter as indicated on the campground map. The three locations are: The haunted house located in the basement of the Waterwheel Shed located east of the Store, the basement of the log bathhouse located by site 148 and Cabin K, and the basement of the log bathhouse by the outdoor pools.
