Camping In Seymour, IN
If you and your family are looking for a way to commune with nature, the Jackson County Visitor Center can direct you to many beautiful campsites that are perfect for a short getaway. No matter what type of camping you may be interested in, our sites will have you covered. Our outdoor areas also offer campers a variety of activities, from horseback riding to golfing.
Reasons to Camp
Camping is a wonderful activity for individuals or entire families. It is an affordable and easy way to get out of the city for a short time and enjoy nature. All of the campsites offer a perfect way to disconnect from your phone, computer, or job, and fully relax. Visitors can also enjoy fishing in rivers, lakes, and ponds; exploring the parks; and, particularly in the case of children, learning new outdoor skills. First-time campers can learn how to erect a tent, gather firewood, build a fire, and cook over an open flame.
Choosing a Campsite
Our recreational areas and parks offer three types of campsites: cabins, RV sites, and primitive sites. Cabins are perfect when the weather is too hot or cold, or for first-time campers who are not yet fully committed to sleeping outside. Our RV sites give visitors a spot to hook up their camper, complete with electricity and water. The primitive campsites are designed for traditional camping, with tents and cooking over an open fire.
Camping with Kids
As mentioned above, camping with children is a wonderful way to teach them new skills. Removing everyday distractions, such as school and television, allows for quality family time. Along with the activities already discussed, Jackson County also hosts several events popular with children, including a child triathlon, a turkey trot, and the Migratory Bird Festival.
So, the next time you are planning a trip, contact the Jackson County Visitor Center to reserve one of our campsites for a visit you will never forget.
Wildlife Refuge in Seymour, IN
For years, Jackson County residents and visitors have enjoyed the beauty of nature in our wildlife refuge. With thousands of acres of undeveloped land, visitors have a chance to experience the great outdoors in an entirely new way. We are located a short distance from Highway 65 and are easily accessible from Cincinnati.
Wildlife Refuge Activities
When visiting the Muscatatuck Wildlife Refuge, there are activities for both adults and children. One of the highlights of the refuge, for many visitors, is the chance to see native animals in their natural habitat. The refuge is home to over 300 species of migratory birds, including a pair of majestic, nesting bald eagles. People also enjoy watching our local colony of river otters as they hunt and play in the refuge’s waterways. Along with animal watching, visitors enjoy hiking the scenic trails, and touring a restored, early 20th-century barn and cabin. Fishing, hunting, and wildlife photography are also popular activities.
The Muscatatuck Wildlife Refuge was established in 1966 as a haven for migrating birds to rest and feed. Its mission is to protect and restore the land and waterways, allowing birds, mammals, reptiles, and fish to call it home. We also strive to protect the area so that current and future visitors can experience the wonders of this natural refuge.
