Getting Outdoors

If you’re a lover of the great outdoors, you’ll love camping at Morgan Monroe State Forest. When it comes to hiking trails, there are a couple to try out, depending on your fitness level. The Mason Ridge Trail is a 1.5 miles long trail that is perfect for grabbing some fresh air or a chill family walk. Combining it with a portion of the Low Gap Trail makes it a good 3.7 miles long loop trail.

Bikers aren’t left behind as the Central Canal Towpath is a 5.6-mile long point to point trail that is perfect for all skill sets. Riding out and back doubles the distance, so keep that in mind while planning the ride. The moderately rated Southwestway Park is a 6.5-mile long multi-use trail used for biking as well as hiking and running. Dogs are allowed, but they should be kept on a leash at all times.

Anglers can drop a line at either one of three forest lakes situated in the state forest. The four-acre Cherry Lake is especially popular for shore angling. If you’re interested in some boating, the nine acres, Bryant Creek Lake, is worth checking out. Remember to carry a valid Indiana fishing license when you rent a camper near Morgan Monroe State Forest.

Camping at Morgan Monroe State Forest

When you are planning on renting an RV for your Morgan Monroe State Forest camping getaway, you’ve got a couple of campgrounds to choose from in the area. The Hickory Hills Campground in Spencer is ideal when you’re after full hookups as a bare minimum. Apart from electric, water, and sewer hookups, Martinsville campers also get access to WiFi, a camp store, and propane. Recreational facilities include a pool, recreational trails, and a playground for kids.

Alternatively, consider state park RV camping at Brown County State Park if you’re a culture seeker interested in exploring the town of Nashville. The pull-thru sites are equipped with full hookups, and additional amenities include laundry facilities, a clubhouse, and a pet area. Also situated in Nashville, the Brown County / Nashville KOA is a kid-friendly campground offering full hookups coupled up with WiFi and cable TV.

Exploring the Area

Unlike hotel rooms or vacation rentals, your movement isn’t restricted when camping with an RV at Morgan Monroe State Forest. Utilize this to your advantage by touring the region as much as you can before leaving for more adventures. Indianapolis boasts of some pretty spectacular attractions. If you’re a petrol head, you’ve got to check out one of motor racing greatest spectacles at least once in your life, the Indy 500. Don’t worry if your visit doesn’t coincide with the Indianapolis 500 as the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum is open throughout the year.

After a couple of hours marveling at speed machines at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum, head over to the Dallara IndyCar Factory for a walkthrough of the engineering behind an IndyCar. If you’re dying to get behind the wheel of one of the racing cars, let off steam by hopping inside one of the full car simulators, which are equipped with iracing, one of the best racing simulators. Thinking of getting your kids into racing? Start them off with a visit to Speedway Indoor Karting, the premier karting spot in the city. They have the only indoor banked oval in the country, much to the delight of NASCAR fans.

A visit to Indianapolis with the family is incomplete without passing by The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis. Established in 1925, the museum is the largest children’s museum in the whole world. The five floors of the massive museum add up to about 472,900 square feet of exhibit space. The museum has approximately 120,000 artifacts divided into three major groups, namely the Cultural World Collection, the Natural World Collection, and the American Collection. Some of the highlights include the largest water clock in North America and a 16-foot-tall figurine of Bumblebee from the movie Transformers.
