The Indiana DNR is warning the public of a campsite booking scam.
The DNR says campers that used a third party on social media to reserve a campsite site for the upcoming year at Spring Mill or McCormick’s Creek state parks, Trine State Recreation Area, or Morgan-Monroe or Greene-Sullivan state forests may be a victim of a potential campsite reservation scam.
Indiana DNR Law Enforcement is investigating a potential scam where a third party fraudulently advertised and rented campsites to Hoosiers, who upon arrival, found their paid site unavailable.
The DNR says if you believe you have been or are currently a victim of this scam, contact Indiana Conservation Officer Central Dispatch at 812-837-9536.
Indiana DNR campsite reservations can only be made at camp.IN.gov or by calling 866-622-6746.
