The Great Outdoors

There's so much to do outdoors when camping at Turkey Run Campground. The state park has 11 different hiking trails that vary in difficulty. Many of the trails will take you across a suspension bridge and into some of Indiana's last preserved sandstone canyons. Hiking through the canyons is challenging but very rewarding. Many of the trails are treacherous at times, so be sure to wear appropriate hiking gear before you head out. There are also several miles of bridle trails for those who enjoy horseback riding. You can't bring your own horse, but you can take a guided ride with one of the horses at their stables.Sugar Creek runs directly through the state park, which means you can also enjoy water sports while you are RV camping here. There is some excellent fishing in the creek, including some solid bass fishing. A state license is required to fish here. You can fish from the shore of the creek or fish from a boat, as there are two boat access points in the state park. This park is also an incredibly popular place to go canoeing. There are many canoe rental companies in the area around the park. You can rent equipment and go boating on your own, or take a guided tour. There are also lots of other excellent fishing locations outside the park just a short drive away. Lake Waveland is a particularly popular place for fishing, and Shades State Park also offers kayaking.There are several notable historical sites near the campground that are worth exploring. The Narrows Covered Bridge is one of the most stunning, as it was built in 1882. There are also a memorial cabin, a preserved pioneer home, and a log church.

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.
