New Cabins Installed at Narrow Campground in Greene-Sullivan

Postby Goosepond Monster » Oct Fri 11, 2013 4:23 pm

I think this is really good news...


The Department of Natural Resources is now offering cabin rentals at the Narrow Campgrounds in Greene-Sullivan State Forest.

Office Administrator for Greene-Sullivan State Forest Phil Templeton said as of this week there are five cabins available, and there will be opportunities for the community to see the new cabins.

"Right now we have six on site, and only five will be ready to rent by the time of the ribbon cutting," Templeton said.

Narrow Campground is located just past the four-way bridge in Greene-Sullivan State Forest.

The Linton-Stockton Chamber of Commerce will host a ribbon cutting for the finished cabins Wed, Oct. 23 at 10 a.m.

The Greene-Sullivan State Forest will also be hosting an open house Tuesday, Oct. 29 from 2 to 6 p.m.

The two room cabins come equipped with bed frame, and Templeton noted campers would need to bring an air mattress for the bed.

There is no electricity or running water now, but these commodities are being planned for next year.

"There is not air conditioning or heat at this time, but there should be by spring," she explained.

Once the electricity is hooked up, the cabins will include two ceiling fans and lights.

"We anticipate in the next phase to get a shower house," Templeton noted.

This is just the first phase of the implementation of the six cabins currently in place. The first phase of the cabins are on the road that goes from east to west.

She noted before these cabins were installed, Narrow Campground was strictly primitive camping.

Templeton noted while the state encouraged them to implement the new cabins, they are excited to be able to offer new facilities to those who utilize Greene-Sullivan State Forest.

If anyone is interested in renting a cabin, contact the Greene-Sullivan State Forest Office at 812-648-2010 or email greenesf@dnr.in.gov.

I've been saying for years if they would improve the campgrounds at GS they would get more interest from people. This is a step in the right direction.

I drove through the Narrow Lake campground today and those cabins look pretty nice! I didn't count them, but I'd guess there's around a dozen now. Looks like you could cast a line from the front porch of a couple and hit a pond that I think they call Beaver Dam Lake. ;)

Figured I would follow up on this thread about the new cabins at Greene-Sullivan. Overall, thought the cabins were nice. No linens are provided so you have to bring an air mattress to sleep on. There are spickets with potable water and vault toilets. There are no showers in the campground, but Greenedog thought it was in the works to get some in. They have AC/heat. I know for a fact the AC works well. It will flat out freeze you out if you let it.
