Cabins* and camp-sites are available through the Indiana Department of Natural Resources website. Participants are encouraged to arrive Friday afternoon and depart Sunday morning. Park entry fee required. The fee for participation, details on registration, and the classes to be included will be available soon.

* There are 11 cabins at $40.00 per-night, they are very nice and accommodate 4 people so a family or group can reserve one.  Live Free USA does not control these cabins so they will be gone very early in the year if not reserved early.  (5 remain available as of April 2019)

The Camp Independence presentations will be conducted in and around the Tepicon Hall Rec Building in the Tippecanoe River State Park. There are 12 very nice cabins that hold up to six people each, these are listed as “Rent-A-Camp” cabins. They are located nearby the meeting hall and rent for $40.00 per night. Reservations are from 3:00 PM on the reservation day till 11:00 AM the following morning. If you plan to camp or bring an RV/Camper there are plenty of sites in the park.

  1. Hi Christy,
    I’ve updated the event listing to include more detailed information about renting the cabins or campsites.

    The link will show a map of where Tipecon Hall and the cabins are located. Reservations are handled directly through the State DNR. They will provide the best information for you to choose a nearby campsite location that accommodates your travel trailer.

  2. Greetings fellow preppers I was excited to see the announcement of this year’s camp independence my husband and I attended last year’s Camp independence and enjoyed ourselves. We’re looking forward to coming again this year . I was wondering if there was any particular area that everyone would be camping as we plan on bringing our travel trailer when we come . We are also interested in donating items for the raffle if they’re having one again this year .
