About Evansville

There’s a good assortment of Evansville RV parks and campgrounds around the outskirts of town in every direction, but few, if any, are located downtown. That having been said, some of the best camping in Southern Indiana can be found around Evansville, and the city’s location makes it ideal for folks who want to divide their time between Hoosier National Forest and Shawnee National Forest, since it’s right in the middle. And there are plenty of things to do in Evansville as well, if you know where to look.
