Campsite Reservations

Reservations for the campgrounds at Brown County State Park can be made up to 6 months in advance. There are now 2 ways to make reservations:

          Online Reservations - Make online campground reservations.

          Phone Reservations - Call 1-866-6CAMP-IN (1-866-622-6746).

Campsite Reservability - All campsites are now reservable, so reservations are recommended. Campsites not reserved are available on a "first-come first-served" basis, but you cannot count on their availability, especially during the summer.

Weekend Minimum Stay - There is a requirement of two nights on the non-holiday weekends: Friday & Saturday or Saturday & Sunday.

Holiday Weekend Minimum Stay - On holiday weekends campers are required to reserve three nights. For all major holidays within the reservation season, if the holiday is on a Friday the required stay will be Thursday through Saturday. If the holiday falls on a Monday the required minimum stay will be Friday through Sunday. If the holiday falls on a weekday it will just be a regular one night minimum stay.

Maximum Stay - Campers are limited to a maximum stay of 14 nights. After 14 nights the campers must vacate the property for 48 hours before they can reregister for an additional stay.

Cancellation - Changes or cancellations made up to the close of the business day prior to your scheduled arrival date will result in a $10 cancellation fee per reservation. For cancellations made on or after your scheduled arrival date you will forfeit the first nights camping fee and may be subject to additional fees per reservation, and you must contact the campground directly.

Transfers - $5 site/date/property change, made through the call center only. Transfers not done on the day of or after arrival. Reservations may not be transferred to dates outside the reservation season at the property requested. The park does not give refunds for unused days.

Note: Fees, operating hours and other details may change during the year. Swimming pools and beaches may close toward the end of the summer when lifeguards are unavailable.

NOTE: RVs & vehicles towing trailers must use the West Gate Entrance (off S.R. 46, west of Nashville).
The North Gate Covered Bridge is restricted to 9 foot height and 3 ton weight limits.
Horsemen's Campground users should use the entrance off 135 South.
