About

This location will be under conversion to a Jellystone Park for the 2014 camping season while they build new amenities like a pool and Ranger Station. Yogi Bear™ will be on property for activities and photo ops.

Come to the country and experience the great outdoors in a quiet, relaxed atmosphere while enjoying the scenic view from one of our convenient campsites. You might also want to drop a fishing line in one of our lakes or possibly stroll along the riverbank. Enjoy a scenic hike through the woods, pan for gemstones in the sluice or take a boat ride in one of the lakes. If that sounds too exhausting, perhaps you will prefer just relaxing by the campfire while chatting with new friends and neighbors.

Hickory Hills is convenient to I-70 and other major highways and within an easy drive of Indianapolis, Terre Haute and Bloomington.

  • Cataract Falls Recreation Area

    The Cataract Falls Recreation Area is a great place for Indiana visitors to enjoy; the falls are located in the picturesque terrain of the Mill Creek Basin and are the largest falls in the state of Indiana. The series of waterfalls run over a limestone bed, and you can even walk behind the falls. Activities include boating, fishing, wading, and picnicking on the shore. There is also an historic covered bridge and crosses the Eel River (or Mill Creek), just above the Upper Falls. The Cataract Falls Covered Bridge is one of the last remaining bridges in the state; the bridge was built in 1882 by the Smith Bridge Company. The falls and the bridge make a great day trip and will add to your already amazing Indiana vacation!
