Vallonia is located about 65 miles south of downtown Indianapolis, between the cities of Seymour and Bedford. It is a small community, somewhat isolated, with a population nearing 300 people at times.

Originally, the settlement was French, but later became an American frontier fortification known as Fort Vallonia.

Amazingly, this small town is rich in the early history of frontier settlements and American politics.. One famous visitor was Major Zachary Taylor, who went on to become the 12th President of the United States. General William Henry Harrison, who was the Governor of Indiana Territory, ordered the construction of Fort Vallonia. Harrison went on to become the 9th President of the United States. Williams’s grandson, Benjamin, later became the 23rd President of the United States.

The fort has been rebuilt and is an attraction at the annual Fort Vallonia Days festival. More information about Vallonia can be found at Wikipedia by CLICKING HERE.

PLEASE NOTE: The listings above are accurate as of 08/17/19, but do not reflect all the amenities offered at this campground. Also, many campground facilities add or remove campsites and amenities over time. We strongly recommend you visit the DNR website at the Starve Hollow State Recreation Area for all information, complete details and much more.

The main entrance to the Starve Hollow Recreation Area is about 2 miles Southeast of the intersection of S. County Rd. 310 (Lake Road) and State Rd. 135. Like the town of Vallonia, this campground is also isolated, and is a very favorite of many campers. We had the pleasure of staying 3 nights in July of 2017 and we are hooked on this facility. We will be back, hopefully in October, for the Fort Vallonia Festival.

The campground area, with full hookups, offers large, level sites with asphalt parking. Our site came with a recently refurbished fire ring and two picnic tables in very good condition. Lots and lots of trees and shade in both the modern campgrounds and the campgrounds for smaller campers and tents. Restrooms and shower facilities were clean and well-kept.
