Covered Bridge Retreat offers camping weeks

The new Covered Bridge Retreat in Parke County will offer special camping opportunities to the general public on designated weeks in August and September.

Aug. 2-7 is Family Camp Week at the retreat, and Sept. 13-18 is Equine Family Camp Week. During these time frames, anyone can reserve an individual campsite.

Families (no horses) are encouraged to attend the first week, and families with horses are encouraged to attend the second week.

The weeks are unique because at all other times the campground is restricted to group camping only and must be reserved in its entirety.

The campground offers 12 electric and nine non-electric sites. Each includes a picnic table and campfire ring.

There is a two-night minimum reservation for each week. Site prices range from $12.84 to $31.03 per night and vary according to the week, the day of the week, and whether the site has electricity. Barn stalls are available during Equine Family Camp Week for $5 a day. Campers must bring their own horse bedding and buckets for food and water. Covered Bridge Retreat offers four miles of trails and is six miles north of Rockville.

For more information or to reserve a campsite, call (812) 648-2810 or email GreeneSF@dnr.IN.gov. For property information visit dnr.IN.gov/forestry/7422.htm.

Covered Bridge Retreat is owned and managed by the Department of Natural Resources Division of Forestry.
