The warm temperatures, cookouts, and vacations that come with the summer months are finally upon us. It’s an exciting time of the year, to be sure, but the sweetness of a summer vacation can go sour quickly when an expensive vacation isn’t in the budget. An RV rental from Greenwood RV Rentals & Sales, coupled with an inexpensive excursion that won’t break the bank, can make it a summer you won’t soon forget.

Indiana Summer Vacation Destinations

1. Big Splash Adventure Water Park

If you’re looking for a weekend retreat with the kids, French Lick’s Big Splash Adventure Waterpark has you covered. This gigantic, 40,000 square foot indoor waterpark has a retractable roof, making your trip enjoyable whether rain or shine. The park includes the Jolly Roger Jetty (a towering water slide), Pirate’s Plunder (a fully-enclosed body slide), Buccaneer Bay (a three-story play area), Lost River (a lazy river), and the Splish Splash Pool (a safe area for kids aged three and under). Best of all, Big Splash admission for the little ones is just $12.00 a day. The park is a short drive from several highly-rated RV parks and campgrounds.

2. Battle of Corydon Memorial Park

If you’re wanting to give your kids a taste of American history, you don’t need to travel to Gettysburg to do it. The Battle of Corydon Memorial Park commemorates the only official, pitched Civil War battle fought in Indiana. The Battles of Corydon and Gettysburg were the only two Civil War battle sites on northern soil. Learn the story of the 450 brave men who joined Harrison County militia to face 2,400 Confederate soldiers led by General John Hunt Morgan, who was beginning the longest cavalry raid of the Civil War. The park is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and is a short drive from RV parks and campgrounds. Artifacts include a Civil War cannon, log cabin, historical plaques, and a wooded trail. The cabin is open on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, during the summer.

3. Buffalo Trace Park

There is so much to do and see at Buffalo Trace Park in Palmyra, Indiana, that it’s perfect for vacationers on a budget. Buffalo Trace Park is a 147-acre public park preserve named for its location along the edge of the old Buffalo Trace, a historic bison migration trail. With campgrounds a mere few miles away, and with park entrance fees of less than $10 per person, a long weekend at Buffalo Trace Park is a great option for vacationers.
