Spring Mill provides year-round camping, including primitive, electric, and youth tent sites, at more than 200 campsites. The campground has playgrounds, new toilet facilities, a camp shop, and access to the lake. Prices differ on the basis of location type and time of year. This is an ideal means of discovering nature and hiking the nearby trails. 

In one place, explore the historic grist mill, many caves, and a tribute to Virgil "Gus" Grissom. In the early 1800s, water running from several cave springs contributed to a small commercial center. In this park, the spirit of these founders lives on. See the fully rebuilt Pioneer Town, a group of 20 buildings replicating the settlement of 1814. The crown jewel is the three-story grist mill, complete with a waterwheel and running water. 

Discover many caves and how the geology of the region deals with them. In colder months, book a seat on the Twin Caves Boat Tour. The tour will take you about 500 feet through two waterside caves. It is an experience that is completely special. Trails, a campground, nature parks, a swimming pool, and more fill the park. Throughout the more than 1,000 acres of woodland, karst, and wetlands, explorers can canoe, sail, hunt, walk and ride.
