For a day of fishing, camping, hunting or just rest and relaxation, Greene-Sullivan State Forest is one of the most beautiful and serene places to visit. Greene-Sullivan was founded in 1936 when various coal companies donated more than 3,000 acres of property to the Department of Natural Resources, Division of Forestry. But that was just the beginning. Now the forest boasts almost 9,000 acres of beautiful woodland and rolling hills dotted with more than 120 lakes, making it one of the most unique areas in Indiana.

Camping
Primitive(class C) camping is available for a fee; campsites are available on a first come, first serve basis. Self check-in stations are located in each campground or at the forest office. Sites have pit toilets and seasonal drinking water available. There is a picnic table and grill located on each of the 100 family campsites of Narrow Lake, Wampler Lake and Reservoir #26. An additional 20 sites for horse campers only are available in the Horseman's Campground near Ladder Lake. A dumping station is also available.

Fishing
With more than 120 lakes scattered throughout Greene-Sullivan State Forest's 9,000 acres, you'll never fall short of fishing opportunities! In fact, the forest offers some of the finest fishing in the state. Most of the lakes are stocked with largemouth bass, bluegill and redear sunfish. The state record bluegill, weighing 3 lbs. 4 ozs. was taken from Reservoir #26 in 1972. In some of the lakes you can find channel catfish, bullheads, crappie and warmouth. Airline Lake is also stocked annually with rainbow trout as part of a statewide put-and -take trout program.
