Visitor Tips and News About Weather Rock and Animal Statues
Weather Rock Campground Animal Statuary
I happened upon the Weather Rock Campground while taking a drive through the back roads of southern Indiana. I was drawn in by a sign advertising the name of the proprietor: "Hillbilly Rick."
The campground features an interesting assortment of whimsical statuary arranged around what appears to be a dilapidated mini-golf course. There is a large chicken in the back of an old pick-up truck, a dog wearing a vest inside some sort of shack, another dog shooting a bow and arrow, and various other friends peeking out from the woodland setting. The golf course didn't appear to be operational when I stopped in, but none of the campers seemed to mind me snapping photos of the attraction. It is on the edge of the campground right inside the main entrance.[Faye Travis, 10/26/2011]
Don't miss Hillbilly Rick's "Weather Rock," which he claims was fought over by Indian tribes for its weather and hunting prognostication powers. It forecasts "immediate weather 100% accurately."
