Nestled along State Road 47 southwest of Crawfordsville, the park offers the chance to explore deep, sandstone ravines, walk along stands of aged forests, and enjoy the scenic views along Sugar Creek."
The plan for this trip is to drive down Friday Night and camp at Shades Campground, 7751 s 890 west, waveland Indiana. We have reserved and prepaid for spots 25, 26 and 27. It is wooded so plenty of trees for hammocks. There are bathrooms and showers but no electricity. The total cost for 3 sites for both nights is $100 with tax. Please come prepared to pay your share which will be divided amongst the number of participants. We will camp Friday night, hike Saturday and camp Saturday night then leave Sunday morning after stopping for breakfast somewhere. I believe a few of us have decided to visit nearby park, Shades, on Sunday after breakfast before heading home.
Participants can choose to come down and meet us for just hiking or camping for either nights or both.
Since this trip is car camping. For gear you will simply need a tent, sleeping bag, sleeping pad (for under your sleeping bag to cushion you from the ground and keep you warm) a cookset (to heat water and cook your meals), silverware, food to eat and I recommend everyone have some water to drink (and smaller bottles to carry while we are hiking) If you are borrowing or buying a new tent please set it up beforehand so that you know how to set it up and ensure that you have all the parts. For clothes, you will have more fun if you are warm and dry so wear comfortable clothes that will dry quickly and you may want to have a rain poncho or coat, just in case. Some good shoes (hiking boots or tennis shoes) will keep your feet comfortable.
I will be bringing my cook stove, little grill and we will probably have a fire at night.
Costs for this trip would simply be gas if you are in a carpool and your share of any campground fees. Campsites allow for a maximum of 6 people per site so if alot of people attend we may have to have more then one.
