Camping near Carmel INSometimes you need a vacation, but time or resources don’t allow you to travel too far. The good news for Carmel and Fishers, IN, residents is that some great getaway destinations aren’t that far away—especially if you’re a fan of camping. Our crew at Greenwood RV Rentals & Sales recommends these area campgrounds as a home base for your summer vacation and adventure.

1. White River Campground

Located right in Hamilton County, the White River Campground is the perfect location for some quiet time in the great outdoors. The campground is located right along the White River, making it a beautiful spot to get away and enjoy outdoor recreation. You can enjoy fishing, hiking, and more. The campground has over 100 modern and primitive campsites, with hookups for your pop-up camper rental as well as on-site bathrooms.

2. Backstage Camp

While not a destination in and of itself, Backstage Camp is a great place to go camping if you plan to catch a concert at the Klipsch Music Center in Noblesville, IN. Many concert fans like to make the most of their experience, creating almost a music festival atmosphere before and after the show. If you want to plan a getaway around a particular music artist, then Backstage Camp may be a great option for you. Note, however, that amenities at the camp are limited and sites are primitive, so be sure to bring everything you need for your stay.

3. Turkey Run State Park

If you want to get a little farther outside the city, then consider Turkey Run State Park. Located only about an hour and a half west of Carmel, IN, Turkey Run has become a popular vacation destination not only due to its great campground but also its outdoor recreation opportunities located right within the park. You can go swimming, hiking, fishing, canoeing, and so much more.

You don’t have to go far to find some great campgrounds. You can easily pick up your pop-up camper from our Carmel location on a Friday afternoon and set up your campsite before sunset. To choose the right camper and make a reservation, contact us today at (317) 413-0817, or book online.
