I have been going to Lothlorian for 16 years, and it has always been a great place to drum. There is a dedicated dome space with lively music all night long. There is also a good group of hoopers and fire spinners too. Attendance is[masked] people. Lothlorian Nature Sanctuary is a non-profit space where drummers and woodsy folks have gathered for 25 years. It is on 109 acres in the rolling hills of southern Indiana. They have a large drumming dome and a well tended bonfire. Many camping areas have fire circles as well. Bring your own food or avail yourself of the fare at the cafe. Hot showers on site. Good cell reception. No electric in the camp area, but an outlet can be had to charge things.The camp atmosphere is truly magica
l! There are many hiking trails in the woods, and the Hoosier National Forest is close. Great canoing area too.
Please peruse their website for related information about this beautiful wooded nature preserve and ELF Fest. You can attend for as many or as few days as you wish.
Several of my drum students have attended in recent years, and I'm sure they would be willing to share their impressions with you. Get a discussion going. Kids love this place and it is a fun time for all.
You will need to go to the website to arrange for your camping fees and such, and there is a discount for registering early. Travel time is about 6 hours from Milwaukee, 343 miles. Indy is 4 1/2 hours on a good day.
You will find a map link on their website.
I prefer to get there on Thursday morning to save spaces for friends. Let me know when you are coming.
It's a bit of a drive, but well worth the time.
