Charlestown State Park, Charlestown, Indiana

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

We camp in a 13' Scamp so most sites will work for us. A lot of the sites here have super long driveways good for bigger campers. There are a lot of full hook up sites but I think those cost about $40 a night. The roads here are nice and wide. A lot of the sites here are sparse with shade because of how new this park is. Lots of dumpsters and potable water spigots available. Restrooms were always clean, even during the 4th of July weekend we stayed. It was surprisingly a very quiet campground especially on such a busy holiday weekend. They have just opened a new camp store where you can get souvenirs, food, and supplies you may have forgotten along with cold ice cream! We also love the hiking trails here! All of the hiking trails here are amazing. This is a great park to bring your bikes as well, lots of nice flat space to ride! One thing I will note is we ran into a Copperhead snake in the campground near one of the campsites while walking our dogs. Please be on the lookout for those when out hiking! We camped at Charlestown State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Lots of stuff close by in Charlestown including an awesome ice cream place called the 62 Twist, where they made our dogs "doggie sundaes" for free and they were super nice!

Brookville Lake Quakertown SRA Campground, Brookville, Indiana

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here in July of 2017. We arrived on a Friday evening and left on Sunday afternoon. We stayed in site 67. The campground is small, but most of the sites seemed somewhat spacious. A lot had nice shade trees. Some of the picnic tables looked like they could be replaced. There was lots of potable water sources readily available. One shower house with showers and flushing toilets. There were "pit toilets" throughout the rest of the park but when we used them the toilets actually flushed but there were no sinks in those so bring hand sanitizer! All of the pit toilets seemed very clean. The shower houses were clean, except for a lot of water all over the floor. A lot of the people were loud but seemed to all observe the quiet hours and DNR drove through a lot to check on things. Front gate woman was extremely nice! We drove down to the beach one day and it was terrible . The beach was flooded and full of trash, there was barely any sand it had all been washed away. There were a ton of boats out on the water though. This campground seems much nicer and smaller than the one at nearby! But do go there to hike some trails. There was a nice bait store right outside the park that sells firewood. The park also sells firewood and ice. We camped at Brookville Lake Quakertown SRA Campground in a Travel Trailer.
