Group Camps
One legacy of the Civilian Conservation Corps movement in Indiana endures through Group Camps at several Indiana State Parks. In addition, a newer facility is available at Wyandotte Woods SRA. Although each site is unique, all offer sleeping quarters with cots or bunks but no linens. Most have a kitchen and dining hall with dishes/utensils and a shower-restroom facility. All operate through the summer; some also have limited winter usage available at reduced rates. (A damage deposit or an advance payment on the rental fee will be required, also sales tax is added unless group is exempt.) For more information on group camps, contact the Park directly.
