Escape to Nature

Like many people, I enjoy getting away and spending some time in nature.  There's just something about going out to an area that is away from the hustle and bustle of the city and spending some time relaxing around a campfire and hiking trails.  If you enjoy camping, one campground recently ranked among the best in the Midwest.

Indiana Campground Comes in 9th

Recently TheDyrt.com ranked the best campgrounds all across the United States.  They separated the campgrounds by region, and in the Midwest Sycamore Springs Park made it into the top 10, but placed in 9th.  The Midwest covers quite a large area, so having a campground from southern Indiana come in 9th place is quite the feat!  TheDyrt.com said they based their rankings on reviews and ratings from campers.

Sycamore Springs Park

Sycamore Springs Park is located in English, Indiana which is surprisingly close to the Tri-State.  When I checked on Google Maps, it's only an hour and fifteen minutes away from Evansville, so it's a great distance for a weekend getaway.
