Camping in West Indiana: Misty Morning
Camp Indiana: I’m talking with Judy Finch. She’s the Owner of Misty Morning Campground in Indiana. Judy, why don’t you get us started by giving us a little bit of history on Misty Morning Campground?
Judy Finch: Well, it’s an older campground. It was started back in the 1950s. It has two fishing lakes on it. It has a 19-unit historic building. It has a nice rolling landscape. It’s right across the road from Leiber State Park, which has a nine-mile-long lake, so we do some boat storage for folks along with having the campsites.
Camp Indiana: Okay.
Judy Finch: We have entertainment there and we try to keep the people happy.
Camp Indiana: Okay. And is it pronounced the Old Cagels Mill?
Judy Finch: I’m sorry, what did you say?Camp Indiana: There’s a picture of an old mill here on your site that looks pretty interesting.
Judy Finch: It’s near that area. Yeah, that shows some things in the area. Right.
Camp Indiana: Okay, so that’s something someone can go ahead and visit if they’re in the area.
Judy Finch: Yeah.
Camp Indiana: And what types of camping do you offer at this particular campground, Misty Morning?

Camp Indiana: Fun. What are the most common activities for guests there?

Camp Indiana: Okay, two more questions for you.

Camp Indiana: Nice. And if you could spend just one night at Misty Morning Campground, which specific site would you stay at and why?
Judy Finch: You know what. I probably wouldn’t be able to answer that question, because I’m not that familiar with the sites.
