My husband and I enjoyed this campground. Lots of tall trees and lots of fire wood picking. You can actually walk to the Yellowwood Lake trail from camp ground 'rose bud'.

“Pleasant CG with access to hiking”

We were looking for a CG in the general area that would be convenient to hiking trails. We’re self contained and don’t use the facilities. We stayed on weeknights in late October in our 25 foot MH.

There is a pleasant campground along the forested shore of Yellowwood Lake. There are 6 loops. We stayed in Redbud with large, open and sunny sites with gravel pads. Most sites need some leveling. There are few trees for shade and several paths to the lake. All sites are primitive. There are water spigots near the campsites. There is a threaded water spigot near the camp office less than a mile away. There’s a dump station in the Redbud Loop. The other loops are more shady with dirt of grass parking with a mix of tent and small RV sites. There’s good ATT and no Verizon signals. There were 4 other RVs during our stay in the Redbud Loop. The other loops were open. Fees are $13/night.

There are several hiking trails that leave from near the CG. The trail around the lake is 5 miles and includes a walk over the dam and access to several side trails. The 1.5 mile resource management trail a very interesting self guided interpretive forest management exhibit. There’s no swimming in the lake. Human powered and electric boats are allowed on the lake. Rowboats can be rented at the office.

Nice KOA with a more rustic feel

Small, tight spaces but fun during a festival

No better place near Bloomington for the price

Muddy and a lot of country highway noise but friendly and convenient.
