Overall Rating

Note, rate shown is for a Electric site. We paid $17 half-price + $7 for electric.

Hardin Ridge is a huge FS CG - over 200 sites on Lake Monroe. It’s a COE lake so nothing but a boat ramp is on the water. We are nestled in the trees. The water is down there somewhere, we just can not see it. I think we are the only ones in the CG. I know we are the only ones in our loop. Most sites have electric, a few have W&E. We have three hot bars of LTE and all the network stations. All this for $17 a night. Bloomington is 30 minutes away.

Not sure how access is rated. It's pretty far off the Interstate, so for those who want easy off/on, this would not be good for them.

Location, great for fishing, boating and relaxing. Nothing else if you are looking for that.

They have older and new bath houses. Our loop, Pine, has a new one. Great showers.

Most sites are gravel, some are paved.
