[DNR] DNR Covered Bridge Retreat offers special camping weeks
Start Date: 7/22/2013Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 7/22/2013End Time: 11:59 PM
Entry Description
The new DNR-owned 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 timeframes, 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 special 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 4 miles of trails and is 6 miles north of Rockville.

For more information and 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 DNR Division of Forestry.
