Get outside this Memorial Day weekend

Although DNR campgrounds and cabins at state parks, state reservoirs and recreation areas are booked to capacity for Memorial Day weekend, some shelters remain available for picnics and other day-use gatherings.

Shelters can be reserved at Camp.IN.Gov or by calling 866-6CAMPIN (866-622-6746).

If you’re looking for a road trip, but not sure where to go, find property maps and facility information at stateparks.IN.gov. Many new features are ready to enhance your experience no matter when or where you visit.

If you're too late to make a reservation for the upcoming holiday weekend, don't miss out on camping over July 4th, Labor Day or anytime this summer. Cabins and campsites are still available, but will go quickly once Memorial Day passes. Visit Camp.IN.Gov or call 866-6CAMPIN (866-622-6746) to reserve your favorite cabin, shelter or campsite.

Campers should consider DNR’s rule on firewood when making preparations for their camping stay. In-state visitors to state parks, state reservoirs, state forests and state fish & wildlife areas can bring firewood from home as long as the bark has been removed.

Guests may also bring firewood onto properties if it is: (1) kiln-dried scrap lumber, or (2) purchased outside the property and bears either a USDA compliance stamp or a state compliance stamp, or (3) purchased from the property camp store or on-site firewood vendor and has a state compliance stamp.

Visitors cannot bring firewood from out-of-state.
