Heading out on vacation with your pet? You will need to find accommodations that treat your furry friends as well as they treat you, and in the state of Indiana, that would be Crawfordsville KOA. This family-oriented RV park (yes, they include your pets in their concept of “family”) knows how to pamper your pets, with arrival treats and a walking service. All this happens within an area filled with trees and flowers, providing the perfect, pristine setting for you and your family. Crawfordsville KOA is open from mid-April to mid-November but may be able to host guests in the off-season with advance notice (some services, such as water hookups, may not be available depending on the weather).
The campground has a pavilion that can accommodate larger groups, plus a swimming pool, playground and game room to keep smaller groups entertained, and restrooms with showers and laundry facilities so you can freshen up as soon as you arrive. Most of the sites have pull-through access and plenty of shade for your RV rental, and most of the roads within the park are one-way (watch for signs). There is a book exchange at your disposal, Wi-Fi so you can contact everyone back home, and firewood and propane for sale. If you'd like to mingle with other guests, the management often hosts social events, and everyone camping at the KOA is invited.
Some of the more iconic attractions you can begin your trip with are the covered bridges you'll find in Parke County and Montgomery County's Rotary Jail Museum, an active jail until it was closed in 1973 and reopened as a museum two years later. Here you'll find not only exhibits and artifacts related to the jail itself but also items that signify the art and culture of Indiana. Another museum focuses on the life of Indiana's native son, General Lew Wallace, a soldier, statesman, and author of the novel “Ben Hur.” Next to this museum in the city of Crawfordsville, you'll find Lane Place, an historically significant family mansion; the father of this family was influential in the creation of the Republican Party and was a friend of Abraham Lincoln.
Search for an RV in Montgomery County, and you can choose from a variety of rental RVs for the one that meets your needs. Now that you're settled in, it's time to cast the net wider and experience everything Indiana has to offer. Morgan-Monroe State Forest is about 90 minutes' drive away when you camp in a motorhome at Crawfordsville KOA. If you'd like to try your hand at gold panning the old fashioned way, this is where you can do it. A permit is required, and no tools other than the pan are allowed, but this is your chance to understand what the original gold miners seeking their fortune experienced. The park is open for hiking, with several trails under three miles in length and a couple of more rugged trails approximately ten miles long; these longer trails loop through the backcountry where primitive camping is allowed.
If you've never seen a fire tower up close or been inside of one, Brown County State Park has one of these and much more. The park has miles of tree-lined roads where you can take a self-guided motor tour of the park, as well as trails where you can hike and mountain bike; don't forget to get some photos while you're here. Camping is allowed, or visitors can stay at the on-site lodge which has accommodations and a water park. From here, you can enjoy the sunrises and sunsets; the park is open year-round and is most spectacular in the fall, as the tree leaves turn a blazing red. The park is also a hop and a skip from Nashville, where you can shop and enjoy other urban comforts.
Hoosier National Forest is a two-hour trip in your RV rental, which means that it might best be enjoyed if you stay overnight and make the most of your time there. Hiking the rugged trails that traverse the park's rolling hills will bring you into contact with sandstone canyons, old-growth forest, and historical landmarks such as the Rickenbaugh House, a stone house that was constructed in 1874 and used as a post office and church meeting space. The park is a combination of several areas in a number of different counties; it has a number of lakes where you can boat and fish.
When it's time to come indoors, head for Lafayette, a medium-sized city with plenty of history and culture. The city is home to several museums, such as the Haan Museum of Indiana Art, the Art Museum of Greater Lafayette, and many more. The Haan Museum has an outdoor sculpture garden that is ADA accessible and has a path that winds its way past the approximately two dozen art pieces. There are wineries and breweries, art studios and shopping malls, and the historical Tippecanoe County Courthouse, an example of Victorian-style architecture that received two thumbs up from none other than author Mark Twain.
If you're ready to live in the lap of luxury while renting a motorhome, head for Indiana's state capital Indianapolis. Begin by enjoying an old-fashioned scavenger hunt updated with newer technology that will take you around the city, answering questions and solving riddles; you may meet other visitors along the way who are also playing the game. There are tours that will take you around to the different breweries, historical sites, and restaurants, or you can even take a yoga class.
From big cities to small towns and outdoor destinations, southern Indiana has whatever you're looking for, and Crawfordsville KOA is where you will begin your epic journey.
