Your next outdoor getaway isn’t as far away as you think

 In General

Summer vacation is here and many are eager to get outside for some fun.

If you live in Jackson County or nearby, your next outdoor getaway is not as far away as you think.

From camping and hiking to fishing and cabin stays, Jackson County has an abundance of your favorite outdoor activities among its scenic landscape.

Camping with electric and non electric sites is offered through Starve Hollow State Recreation Area in Vallonia and the Jackson-Washington State Forest in Brownstown.

Each of those stays also include the opportunity for excellent fishing and relaxing views. And with nearly 45 miles of trails between the two properties, there is an opportunity for hikers of any experience level to get out and experience the outdoors.

Starve Hollow also offers swimming, boat and kayak rentals, play areas, picnic areas, mountain bike trails and more to complete your experience. Jackson-Washington State Forest also includes several picnic areas where you and your family can spend some quality time together.

Starve Hollow also boasts 17 Rent-a-Cabins on their property. You can check the cabins’ availability here. Some of the cabins even provide a lakefront view, but you can check all their amenities here.

If you’re not up for an overnight stay, both properties are a great place to spend a day enjoying the outdoors. Jackson County also is home to the Muscatatuck National Wildlife Refuge, which includes trails and opportunities for fishing.

Don’t forget while you’re here to check out our two covered bridges, the Medora Covered Bridge and Shieldstown Covered Bridge. It’s also the perfect time to swing by one of Jackson County’s many farmers markets, which you can read about on our website by clicking here.
