Nancy Grant/ Indiana Chapter Guide

If you are looking for a small, beautiful campground Buffalo Trace Park is the place for you, it’s probably a secret to most of Indiana but the locals love it. It’s a county park and campground located in southern Indiana in the small town of Palmyra. As a child, I watched them build this park growing up next to it.


Picnic areas, a lake, tennis courts, basketball, a softball field, a petting zoo, playgrounds, and disc golf, are all offered. The lake has fishing, paddle boats, canoes, kayaks, and a beach. As a bonus, the lake has a 1-mile paved walking trail. Paddle boats, kayaks, and row boats are all rented for $10 an hour.


For lodging options, you have the campground, cabins, rental campers, and yurt tents. The campground offers 51 modern campsites and 14 tent sites. There’s electricity and water to fill up plus a heated modern shower house, with wood and ice for sale. The modern campsites’ prices range from $15-$38 and the tent camping range from $12-$20.


Nearby there are several attractions to visit, Hubers Winery, Historic Corydon Indiana, and Marengo Cave. All these attractions are within 20 minutes of the campground.

The park holds several special events throughout the year including car shows, festivals, two Halloween weekends, and a fish fry.

If you need a break from large busy campgrounds make a reservation to check out southern Indiana and Buffalo Trace Park.
