Buffalo Crossing. Cool statues, and the nursery was quaint!

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.

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."
