Chris and Stacy, residents of Zionsville, initially created CastleBrooke Farms to be closer to their children attending Indiana University. What began as a harvested forest sitting adjacent to Morgan Monroe State Forest has turned into a beautiful, private escape. Chris, Stacy and their family and friends have enjoyed hiking, taking long walks, riding RTVs, fishing, camping and hunting while quietly enjoying this private park setting.
Adding a massive 5,100-square-foot indoor space that includes bathrooms, showers, a kitchen and beds, the Brookes have created an outdoor haven with all of the indoor amenities to make guests’ stays comfortable and all-inclusive. Chris and Stacy love being so close to home, 15 minutes from Bloomington, and only an hour from the Northside of Indianapolis. CastleBrooke Farms truly gives them and all of their guests a home away from home—surrounded by any outdoor enthusiast’s dream landscape.
