“Nice campground close to highway!”

This was a nice reprieve from staying over night in parking lots! Sites are well spaced and wooded. We stayed in the off season so prices were low but not free. $5 for non-electric sites (north face CG) and $10 for electric sites (south slope CG). The On Season appears to be April-October. The water was turned off so bathrooms and show... more

“Over night stops on the way to and home from Missouri.”

Very nice campground. The 2 different sites we stayed in were large. But the interior roads are narrow making it a challenge to get into. The site we stayed in on the way home was super nice, close to the bathroom, and had great separation from neighbors.Showers were nice. Electric hookup. Wish we could have spent more time there.

Nice sites with electric. Sites are big but the road is narrow making it a challenge to get into some of them. Staff friendly, shower houses decent.

“My favorite campground in Indiana. Underused, forest service privatized, clean, quiet.”

Reviewed Nov 17, 2016

I have been camping at this unit of the Hoosier National Forest for decades. It has always been good to excellent and still is. Very quiet in the hills of southern Indiana. Great scenery in fall. Fishing good in Indian Lake just down the interior road for bluegill, redear, crappie and channel catfish. You will need a boat though. ... more

We stayed here one night in July 2014. This campground is convenient to I64 and was nearly deserted midweek. There may have been 4 other campers the night we were there. We camped in the South Slope loop of the campground. We had electric at our site and drinking water was available at different spots around the campground. Flush toile... more
