    Indian Crossing Campground is adjacent to John Jarvie Ranch, built in 1880. This historic site provides a glimpse of turn-of-the-century frontier life in Browns Park. John Jarvie, a businessman from Scotland, chose this particular location because of the naturally occurring river crossing. For years it had been used by American Indians, fur trappers, travelers and local residents. Jarvie figured it would be an excellent spot to establish a business. At its height, the Jarvie Ranch operation included a store, post office, river ferry and cemetery.
