Need to get away from it all? FIND yourself at Indian-Celina and you’ll discover one of southern Indiana’s hidden beauties. Indian-Celina Recreation Area offers visitors some of the best camping, boating, fishing, and swimming around, and is nestled deep within the Hoosier National Forest. For those looking for a bit of history, the Rickenbaugh House, a sandstone block house dating back to 1874, is open periodically during the summer months to accommodate the curious. Best of all, the area offers other amazing opportunities such as Splashin’ Safari, Holiday World, Two Lakes Hiking Trail, and much more. For more camping a little further north, check out Hardin Ridge Campground near Bloomington!

While getting “out there” and getting your hands dirty, make sure to do your part to recreate responsibly. Take a minute to visit our FIND forest friends and learn how!
