You could easily spend a whole vacation right at Lost Acres. For extended day play, explore the surroundings. Use Lost Acres RV Park as your base camp and you won’t have to go farther than half an hour in any direction for an inexhaustible amount of entertainment.

Indiana Beach – just 1.6 miles away, a good walk or an easy bike ride – has been a hit for nearly a hundred years with a thrill-per-minute throttle that’s wide open. Surrounded on three sides by the beautiful Tippecanoe River and Lake Shafer, it’s home to a world-class amusement park. We dare you to ride Thunder Bobs. In fact, we dare you to exhaust more entertainment venues in the immediate neighborhood than you could visit in six vacations.
