We only stayed one night, but we will probably come again. The campground was very clean and the sites are all pretty nice. We were able to choose our site and picked a pull through for convenience. There is one bathhouse pretty centrally located. The other facility is a pit/vault toilet. There is a nice playground on the site. Our grand daughter enjoyed it. We camped at Mounds State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

The trails in the park are well kept. They range from easy to moderate. The trails near the river have some very nice overlooks.

I would have given this campground a much higher score if it weren't right next to a railroad track. The train ran all thru the night, blowing it's whistle a lot. Needless to say, I got very little sleep. We spent just one night here, on our way home from a trip south for the winter. Campground itself seemed very nice, with good paved roads and paved pads. No water or sewer hook ups. Campground was also right next to a small airport, so we heard several low flying small planes and helicopters til about 9pm. Nothing obnoxious, since they didn't fly thru the night. It's just a shame about the railroad noise. Unless you are an extremely sound sleeper, I would not recommend staying at this campground. We camped at Mounds State Park in a Motorhome.

Our first night after the pick up of our rental we were at Mounds. Good spot for the first night. Quiet and in the nature of the state park. We camped at Mounds State Park in a Motorhome.

Love this park! The sites are very spacious. The CG was completely full when we were there, but it very quiet. The hostess walks the CG and is very nice. It is electric only sites. The only reason I gave it a 9 was the showers have very limited hot water - so you better be quick! :) It is close to Ball State University so makes a great place to stay and visit the campus. Has a great nature center, trails, historical home and the mounds to visit. We camped at Mounds State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Beautiful state park! Spacious lots, walking trails everywhere. A little hard to maneuver with our toad around the sharp corners to get to the campground area. Since it is off season, they come to you to collect the night's fees which are very reasonable. Tables and fire rings were provided. Only drawback was the sound of the trains in the night, which was every few hours. We camped at Mounds State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a fascinating area, and despite some disappointments, I'm glad we stayed here. The Mounds were very serene, and the pool was nice; especially, the part for young children. The shower and pool house were not very clean. There were bugs and a bit of debris in both. The park trails were not clearly marked (even the campground worker agreed with us on this!) and the map was little help. We walked for nearly an hour circling one of the mounds on both sides before finding it. It was, in fact, only a 15 minute walk from our campsite. We camped at Mounds State Park in a Motorhome.

We camped here last April and enjoyed it so we chose to stop overnight this year on the way to Arizona. Price was higher - we paid $17 last year, plus we paid an additional $5 to enter the park for a total of $30. The sites are large and easy to access. There are nice walking trails, and fire pits. The bathrooms are large but not heated, so are cold in April. This time around they were not clean - only one of 3 toilets functioned in the men's washroom. Our electric hook-up had an arcing problem with the 30 Amp service so we had to use the smaller 15/20amp plug. The ranger did come the next morning and service the washrooms. Overall a disappointing stay given how much we enjoyed the 2010 stay. It's still a nice overnight spot, or would make a nice weekend get-away. We would probably give the park one more try before writing it off. We camped at Mounds State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Sites are good size and not too close together. Trails are nice, park programs are good too. We camped there twice this year. First visit was great. Second visit the Anderson Airport (behind the campground) was very busy and the train traffic was very high too, especially during the night. Made it hard to sleep. Shower house is closed for cleaning mid-morning, which makes the morning routine a challenge. Overall a nice campground. We camped at Mounds State Park in a Tent Trailer.

This is a beautiful park and we would stay here again. We had a level site under some beautiful shade trees. The site didn't have a lot of privacy but was fairly good size. There are many trails of different degrees of difficulty. This park is a gem to find. Although we couldn't get 50 amp, we were able to run one a/c on 30 amp. There were not individual site water hookups but there was water available several sites down. The beauty of the area overshadowed any downside in facilities. The huge pool looked wonderful as did the many picnic areas in the campground. We camped at Mounds State Park in a Motorhome.
