Burdette Park Campground near Evansville is a popular destination for RV camping and a good choice for you. This smallish family-friendly RV park has both full hookup sites and sites with just water and electrical hookups; some of the sites have pull-through access, and some allow for tent camping. The RV campground is open year-round and has restrooms and showers, laundry facilities, a playground for kids, and a recreation room for those days when the weather isn't cooperating.
The campground is part of the larger Burdette Park area and is only minutes away from the park's other attractions, such as a seasonal outdoor swimming pool, hiking trails, an urban park, and much more. If you find yourself in need of supplies or just feel like letting someone else do the cooking, Evansville can provide these things. Between the campground and Evansville, you'll see the Ohio River; you should take some time to drive or walk along the river banks. They're the state line between Indiana and Kentucky, meaning you're looking directly into the next state when you view the small peninsula the river wraps itself around.
Book an RV in Vanderburgh County, and you will be ready to begin the vacation of a lifetime. Once you're behind the wheel, point your rental RV towards Harmonie State Park near New Harmony. This cultivated recreation area has a swimming pool, waterslide, and picnic areas where you could spend an entire day relaxing if you wish. It also has numerous established trails that are perfect for hiking and mountain biking, a boat launch ramp giving you access to the Wabash River, and a nature center where you can view exhibits and learn more about the area. The land occupied by the park was first settled in 1814 by a unique community known as the Rappites; they were joined in 1824 by a second and equally distinct community, the Owenites.
Eagle Slough Natural Area is a nature preserve that was designed to provide habitat for more than 160 different bird species such as warblers and bald eagles. The refuge consists of wetlands and bottomland bald cypress tree forests, and it is divided by an old rail bed, which now serves as an established trail for hiking and nature observation (visitors are asked not to go off of the trail in order to protect the ecosystem's plant life). There are informational signs along the trail and several observation decks offering unimpeded views.
Angel Mounds State Historic Site is where you want to head with the Evansville camper rental if you'd like to combine some history and archeology with your outdoor excursions. The Angel Mounds are a series of human-made earthen hills that were built to situate important buildings away from others; the area was home to a Native American culture that disappeared hundreds of years ago. Archeologists still work in the area looking for artifacts and clues as to why they left. The site has a visitor center displaying some of the treasures and explaining what has been learned. The areas of the site that aren't being excavated have trails where you can hike, mountain bike, and enjoy the landscape.
As the day winds down, you'll want to start thinking about where to refuel, and some of the local towns and cities have attractions that are worth your time and effort to see. Mount Vernon has a long history, and a number of its buildings are listed on the National Register of Historic Places, such as the Posey County Courthouse Square. Once you've finished your meal, a walking tour of the town would reveal many of these buildings and their architecture. The city's restaurant scene has a good selection of commercial chain eateries and local establishments; you can choose from Mexican, American, and Chinese cuisine, just to name a few, or opt for some barbecue which is always worthwhile.
Highland also has some beautiful architecture worth viewing and a long list of urban parks where you can take a leisurely stroll or just soak in the vistas. Families can enjoy spending an afternoon at the city's bowling lanes; if you don't have kids in tow, there is a day spa where you can have the kinks and muscle knots massaged away in a comfortable and relaxing space. Highland's restaurant scene has a good variety of choices ranging from inexpensive and moderately priced to fine dining. You'll find several steakhouses and Italian restaurants along with one venue that takes gourmet hot dogs to the next level.
