“Large sites”

Reviewed May 12, 2019

Overall Rating

Long site backing onto wooded area. Room for our truck and trailer in a straight line. Roads paved, very easy for large rigs.
Great hiking, hike to Rose Amusement park a must. Didn't use the washroom facilities.
Had to pay entry to state park of $9 (out of state).

Very nice State Park. Quiet and clean. Lots of hiking trials. The Rose Island trail is a must. Lots of history surrounding Rose Island Amusement Park. All sites are paved. Mulberry loop has full hookups and electric only. Two fresh water fill sites on the way into the campground and two dump stations when leaving. Park personnel are v... more

“Very peaceful park only 20-30 minutes from Louisville!”

Reviewed Apr 19, 2019

Overall Rating

We loved our stay here! We stayed 8 nights in April (overlapping the Thunder over Louisville weekend) while we filmed a wedding in Louisville. During the week there were maybe only five or six other campers. Very peaceful, really nice clean park. We stayed at a site with full hook ups, everything worked great. Site was $33 during... more

“Great. Except for the water.”

Reviewed Sep 30, 2018

Overall Rating

The campground is set way back from the road. Long drive to get to the gatehouse. Worker there was very friendly, but neglected to tell us that the park was under a boil water advisory until further notice, due to a water main break in town. We had already filled up our fresh tank by the time we saw a sign on the bathhouse warning of t... more

“Private park like setting ”

Reviewed Sep 25, 2018

Overall Rating

Great Indiana state park with options of partial and full hook ups! Plenty of sites offer secluded private camping with excellent comfort stations. Just 20 mins to Louisville Kentucky. Much better than the private RV parks.
Best sites with electric in my opinion: 160, 162, 164, 117, 179, 110.

Very clean park, nice park people! Large park, just so happened only about 7 campers in the whole park! spot was sloped down so no leveling needed...clean restrooms with hot shower. Verizon was good - 2-3 bars - stayed in electric spot but there are full hookups

“Well laid out and has everything we LOVE.”

Reviewed May 30, 2018

Overall Rating

We have really enjoyed our stay at Charlestown State Park. This campground is well laid out with an easy drive in and very private with lots of night stars and the sounds of silence. Most of the sites on the passenger side (outside) seem to be at the perfect angle for an easy back in. A good portion of the driver's side sites are s... more

Nice park. We stayed Easter weekend...they had just opened up full hook up sites, so not very full. Level sites, paved. Price a little high for state park, but reasonable. Lots of hiking trails, good place to ride bikes. Probably pretty busy in the summer. Nice proximity to Louisville. Will stay here again if we pass this way...f... more

The campground in this pretty state park is well thought out, offering full hook ups, spacious sites, and lots to keep visitors occupied and happy. The sites here are very large and quite spacious. There was plenty of room between us and our neighbors and we thoroughly enjoyed having so much space on either side of our rig. The only do... more

Overall Rating

The sites here are nice and large, typical of most state parks we've stayed in. The park appears very clean, groomed, and maintained. It's nice to find full hookups at a state park, and for a reasonable fee. There's also a $9 park entry fee, but fortunately that was a one-time charge and not a daily charge like most other parks.
