On the shores of Lake Monroe, Indiana’s largest lake, Hardin Ridge Campground and Recreation Area offers many activities within the Hoosier National Forest. Enjoy swimming, boating and fishing at our day use area, or hike one of several trails within the national forest.  The campground boasts 200 spacious campsites that accommodate anyone looking to spend a little time in the shade. Large, private tent sites are situated on the numerous ridgelines that make Hardin Ridge look more like a forest in the mountains than the flatlands. Sun or shade, Hardin Ridge is the ultimate in the “family getaway”!  Want to learn what it’s like here? Check out this BLOG.  And don’t forget to check out our other campgrounds at Indian-Celina and Tipsaw!  For the best in Indiana campgrounds, check out these pristine locations.
