CERAland Park, Columbus Indiana
Talk about full accommodations, CERAland Park has events and facilities that rival even the best chain parks. CERA stands for Cummins Employees Recreation Area, the park was originally established as an area for corporate retreats and has since evolved into a great camping and recreational facility. 324 sites provide water and electric with 112 of those sites also have sewer hookups. With plenty of other facilities such as showers, laundry, and dining facilities you can stay for just a night or a whole season. Where do we get started on activities and features? There’s an amphitheater with live music, fishing, go-kart track, sports and fitness center, 18-hole mini golf course, heck even a cricket pitch! That’s just a fraction of the facilities and activities. There’s plenty of fun to go around both day and night for young and old alike. That’s what makes CERAland one of our top parks.
