Lake Shelbyville

Many campsites are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. The National Recreation Reservation Service (NRRSTM) accepts reser- vations for individual sites at U.S. Army Corps of Engineers camp- grounds. NRRSTM is a nationwide reservation system for the U.S. Army Corps of Corps and the Forest Service.

Reservations may be made one of three ways:

1. by calling toll free 1-877-444-6777, 2. by going to on the Internet, or 3. by going in person to the campground

Site specific reservations must be made no later than four days in advance to ensure a place. Without a reservation, campsites are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Reservations for State Parks: Eagle Creek, Wolf Creek and Hidden Springs State Forest can be made online at
