Tipsaw Lake Recreation Area is tranquil and serene. This small, blissfully quiet lake (no speedboats allowed) has a large beach and picnic area, both well maintained. The campgrounds are on a ridge above the lake (no view). Catbrier Loop has 10 sites, all with electric and water. Catbrier is a lovely park-like setting, with flat grassy areas, numerous trees, and large, spacious sites with concrete grid pads. This loop also has a picnic pavilion and two privy restrooms. A 1/2 mile trail to the beach is located in the back. Dogwood and Jackpine loops have some electric sites and communal water faucets. Those loops offer deep-woods shaded sites, and very nice bathhouses plus other privies are located throughout. CG Hosts are present in each loop, and keep the areas well maintained. We spent an excellent weekend floating in the lake, and watching the abundant wildlife: deer, fox, turtles, bats, cranes, and legions of butterflies. At the end of July, these campgrounds were less than half full, we felt we had the place to ourselves! We will definitely return to Tipsaw Lake and the Catbrier campground. We camped at Hoosier / Tipsaw Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

We stayed at Tipsaw in the hot of July and had a ball! The water is absolutely beautiful and very well maintained! The electric hook ups were very helpful and the bath houses were extremely close and all around us. This park is very very well kept up with, they clean up every bit of trash possible, clean out the fire pits every morning and restock bath houses daily. They were extremely helpful anytime we needed something and also very friendly. They have firewood, ice and almost any other camping supply you would need. We camped at Hoosier / Tipsaw Recreation Area in a Tent.

This is a very nice and quiet family campground. Heavily forested with a lot of privacy. Even on a busy holiday weekend it was quiet. This is a nice relaxing place with a nice beach and play area for the kids. The play area is not by the campground though, it is over the hill by the beach. We camped at Hoosier / Tipsaw Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

This is in the Hoosier National Forest and are older campgrounds. They are located just a few miles south of I-64 in the middle of the state. There are 3 small lakes, and a beautiful swimming and beach area. This is a great destination spot or an overnight stop off I-64. This is a well kept secret. In mid week you might only have to share the place with the campground volunteers. We camped at Hoosier / Tipsaw Recreation Area in a camper.
