Indian Celina Lake is a dog-friendly campground and recreational area found in southern Indiana. As part of the broader Hoosier National Forest, the area offers plenty of hiking trails to explore, as well as chances for fishing and historical tours. History-loving hounds will love sniffing around the grounds and cemetery of the Rickenbaugh House.
Overnighters at Indian Celina Lake will find that the facilities are well equipped for canine lovers. There are two different loops containing a total of 16 different sites, which make a great short walk if your dog needs a quick potty break. The sites offered here are a blend of tent-only, non-electric sites as well as more developed sites that can cater to RVs or pop-up campers. The base prices listed here are for the primitive, non-electrified sites, and guests should be warned that costs rise significantly for the more deluxe offerings. If you're looking to rent a site with full hookups, these run anywhere from $27 to $43 per evening. Be sure to check out the price breakdown on Indian Celina Lake's official website for more details.
Make sure to pack your fishing equipment if you're coming here during the warmer months, as Indian Celina Lake has two nearby lakes, Indian Lake and Celina Lake. Boat ramps are free for guests to use, provided they've paid either daytime admission fees or are staying the evening. Licenses are required for both activities, so make sure to come prepared. Fido is more than welcome to be your co-pilot for a boating expedition, provided you keep them safe and secure during your travels.
Speaking of Fido, guests with canines at Indian Celina Lake should always remember best practices, including cleaning up any messes and keeping their canine on a leash at all times. Any visitors with a dog should also keep them clear of all public areas, like bathrooms, showers, or shops.
