We enjoy camping here. The village is nice. Good hiking trails, plus the Gus Grissom memorial. You should be careful; there are some bad campsites so pay attention to the description when making reservations. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

September 2013
We camped here this past weekend (Labor Day 2013) and had the best time. The park itself has a great deal to do, with a hiking trails, nature center, biking, birdwatching, history, cave tours, and more. They have the best camp store we've ever encountered: fully stocked with just about everything you can imagine (fresh foods of all kinds, RV supplies, activities, snacks of all stripe, a wide variety of cold drinks, even camp cookbooks! Our site (#16) had a steep grade, they called it 'extreme' but we could not level out. The entire spot, except one small patch, was hard packed dirt and the vehicle area was gravel. (A bit dusty since it had not rained in some time.) Water was easily reachable, located between out site and the site just next door, and the electric hookup was immediately next to the parking area. Our electric tested out and worked perfectly, (not often the case) and the water was clean and fully functional. The sites appear to be kept very clean and in good shape all over the park. We saw park staff in repair vehicles working on the bathroom once and repairing a faulty pedestal in another spot. Housekeeping cleaned the bathrooms twice a day when we were here: very impressive! Although the facilities were not new, they were very well kept up with and in great shape. Firewood was $4.25 per bundle at the camp store, and although we didn't buy any, they have plenty of ice on hand at reasonable prices. I'm not sure if the bicycle rentals were reasonable or not, but given the prices for everything else I'd say that they were completely fair. The bikes themselves were in good shape and there were a good number to rent. For those interested in activities, the pool is huge, clean, and very inviting, the nature center is very well laid out with a good deal of literature and signage, in addition to very friendly staff. The hiking trails are well marked and offer great variety (waterfront, old growth forest, Karst topography features, etc.). The short cave tour is by flat bottom boat and is well worth the $3 fee (arrive at 9am to book whatever time you want, they sell out early and you can only book for that day.) The historic village is in amazing shape, had plenty of staff on hand when we were here, and is truly beautiful. If you like CCC history (as I do) this is a great place to visit: the CCC did quite a bit here and it shows. Park staff were extremely friendly and helpful and we were very positively impressed with them given the extreme load on the park during the holiday weekend. They have two dump stations (located at the camper check-in as they often are) to speed exiting, but the line was quite long given that the park was at full capacity for the holiday. We don't use them so I can's speak to their condition, but at a glance they appeared to be clean and well maintained as far as I could tell from 5 feet away. We have added this park to our top parks list and plan to return regularly. It's a fantastic park with so much to do, great staff, and great camping! We camped here in a Motorhome.

The addition of the mountain bike trail made our stay even nicer than in years past. I also found out that the DNR purchased Cave River Valley where I would camp and explore the caves many years ago. A shortage of funds has limited its development but should be a nice addition to Spring Mill only if the caves can remain protected. Be aware that many sites are not level and the water hook ups may be as much as 100 feet from your camper. We purchased our corn meal in the village and sought relief from the heat in the Park's fantastic pool. A Friday evening meal at the Inn was very enjoyable. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
