The Great Outdoors

Camping at Shakamak Campground opens a world of possibilities for outdoor recreation, and the first place to explore is definitely its namesake, Shakamak State Park. Sitting on three lakes – Lake Shakamak, Lake Kickapoo, and Lake Lenape, it is a haven for boaters and anglers, as well as campers who want to sit back and enjoy the view. If you are looking for a way to refresh yourself during the hot days, there is a swimming pool in the park. Hikers can roam through the wooded parts of the park and enjoy wildlife viewing on the way. Travelers who visit in the winter will have a chance to try ice fishing and witness a completely different landscape.With so many incredible natural spots where you can park your rental RV in the area, it is difficult to choose where to go, but if you park it at Brown County State Park, you definitely won’t regret it. One of the largest state parks in Indiana, its nickname is “The Little Smokies” because of its resemblance to the legendary mountains. Campers who climb to the top of the fire tower will be rewarded with stunning vistas of rolling hills, ridges that disappear in the distance, and ravines waiting to be explored. The park is famous for its breathtaking autumn colors, creating a perfect backdrop for photographers.If you drive to the north for a bit over an hour, you will arrive at Turkey Run State Park and go for an unforgettable RV camping adventure among its unique rock formations, sandstone cliffs, and mysterious gorges. Sugar Creek cuts through the park, offering anglers and canoers its calm waters shaded by lush trees. As you find your way through the forest, you will be blown away by the beauty of waterfalls jumping from the cliffs and the panoramic views from their top. History buffs shouldn’t miss out on a visit to the Colonel Richard Lieber Cabin, dedicated to the father of the Indiana state park system.

Questions about RVs?


What type of RV should I choose?


Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Do the RVs have bathrooms?


Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


How does check-in work?


Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
