Nestled between miles and miles of farmland is an oasis known as Shakamak State Park. We “roughed” in one of the plush bunk houses at the group camp last fall, and really enjoyed our stay. Although the park may seem like it is out in the middle of the boonies, Terre Haute is only about 30 minutes away, and has just about every store or restaurant you could want.

The park features 400 acres of man-made lakes surrounded by forest, walking trails, a swimming pool, and all the activities you would expect to be offered at a group camp (there are single campsites too). Just about every day, I’d drive or bike to one of the land bridges separating the lakes and try to capture the sunset. Here are a few of the photos from around the camp.
