DNR campgrounds and cabins at state parks, state reservoirs and state recreation areas are booked to capacity for Memorial Day weekend, except for Trine State Recreation Area in Angola, where recently renovated cabins are still available.

Trine SRA is near Pokagon State Park and was dedicated in a grand opening last week. It offers 12 overnight cabins, most of which were available for reservation as of Monday.
For picnics and other day-use gatherings, shelters at locations statewide remain available.

Shelters not reserved 48 hours in advance are open on a free, first-come, first-served basis on the day of arrival.

Reservations for cabins and shelters can be made at Camp.IN.Gov  or by calling 1-866-6CAMPIN (1-866-622-6746).

If you’re looking for a road trip, but not sure where to go, find property maps and facility information at stateparks.IN.gov

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 1-866-6CAMPIN (1-866-622-6746) to reserve your favorite cabin, shelter or campsite.

If you already have a reservation, please check out the DNR firewood rule at firewood.dnr.IN.gov  and “Buy it where you Burn it.”
