Nice long pull-through sites that are gravel next to cement pad. Friendly staff. Good Wi-Fi. Restrooms and showers were long walk. They were being renovated. Too far from the W sites. Feels safe. Pleasant campground. - Snooker2

If you ever find yourself even considering stopping here, pull to the side of the road and slap yourself as hard as you can. When you can see straight again, carefully reenter traffic and run, run like the wind. This is beyond a doubt the worst campground (I use the word campground for lack of a better word) that I have ever stayed at. Yes, they say they have 60 sites, I counted about eight that were not used for full timers. Most of these were water/electric situated in the middle of a field. Access for even medium sized rigs is iffy. We scraped several branches coming in with our 30 foot Class C. Average site width is about 12 feet, (I am being generous here), not enough if you have slide outs. The web site states the grounds have been restored to the same way they were 20 years ago. I think they mean they have done nothing to the place in 20 years. Avoid this place like the plague. - axtoncampers

The park is not unlike all of the other state parks we've visited. They are all beautiful in their own right and Pokagon was definitely no exception. It is hilly, (mostly) green, and located on the shores of Lake James (a public lake). The campsites were large and campsite 429 was huge. We think that site 429 use to be two sites that they made into one because it had a large whole in the center of it were another burn pit use to be. Most of the site was dirt with a few occasional grass patches. The actual camping pad was also just dirt, unlike the gravel found at most state parks. The sites were also fairly shaded with lots of trees covering most of the grounds. The playground was nice for the littler kids, but our six year olds were pretty bored with it after a few minutes. The park did offer a wide variety of activities. The have a cool refrigerated toboggan run but it is only operated throughout November-February. They have a pretty nice little nature center with a lot of live turtles, snakes, fish, and frogs. The beach is very nice, but small. The water is pretty clean, shallow, and has a sandy bottom. We don't want to be harsh, but he bathhouses are gross. The showers were dingy and dirty, paint was peeling off the walls, the floor tiles were cracked and dirty, and there were lots of cob webs. There are two dump stations located in the various loops of the campground. This is a bit odd as they are located in the campground loops, like on the main drag to exit the loop, which means that on Sunday morning there is a huge traffic jam of campers blocking the road right in the middle of the campground. On top of that, the dump station in the loop we camped in was pretty small. Our 30 ft camper barely fit in the station. - Lets Go Camping They Said

Generally nice campground in a State Park with lots of family-oriented amenities and activities. Roads are paved. The gravel sites range from open and sunny to shaded with good privacy, and were mostly level. Note that not all loops have electric hookups, so pay attention when choosing your site. Only one modern bathhouse was open this early in the season. The restroom facilities were as clean as could be expected given their age, but the showers were rather grim with lukewarm water at best. The shower curtain appeared to be from last season, which is odd, as you would expect that to be one of the first things they would replace when preparing for the new year. Otherwise, we had a very pleasant, restful stay for one night. - A Frame

We were reserved in the 100 loop - (Site 111). The restrooms in this loop were sketchy. When we got to our site, we were only able to pull into our site by using the site across from us. Once we got into it, we discovered that the only electricity available was at either of the neighboring sites. Our cord needed to be three times longer, so we were in trouble, as the temperature was going to get down to 39 degrees that night. We left our site and went up to the check in. They sent up a DNR guy to help us. Meanwhile, the people in the site across from us arrived and had to use our site to pull in. The DNR saw all our problems and very nicely put us into the 500 loop. The 500 loop is flat and easy to get into and out of. The bathroom is clean and nice. The 100 loop was much more interesting and rustic, but we were just as happy to switch. All of the DNR people we spoke to were the nicest people. BUT there is no hot water in the showers. It would be better to install pay showers and get hot water. - User2011

Big rig friendly with level sites and easy access from interstate. Showers were large with hot water. Laundry and Wifi was okay. No cable but able to use our satellite. Campground had large dog park. Even though there were lots of seasonals there were still good sites for overnight or weekly stays. - Fulltimersrv

We stayed for a long weekend with good friends. Have wanted to visit this CG for a while and are very glad we did! The CG was very clean. I was impressed at the number of employees we saw, always busy doing something.
There was a fenced dog park with some ability equipment, my 13yo chocolate lab who used to be an agility dog but just gave me a look when I suggested he give it a try!
The camp store was wonderful! So well stocked, we were very excited about the hand dipped ice cream. There was a lot of rv supplies. They even had Circle-B t-shirts at a very reasonable price.
There are seasonal lots that are very well maintained by the seasonal campers. The seasonal people that we spoke to were very nice. We are definitely considering a seasonal lot.
They also have cabins to rent.
There is a newer building by the beach that could be a little store but it wasn't open yet when we were there. So I'm not sure.
There are 2 beaches which we didn't use because it was too cold.
You aren't allowed to bring in your own wood so just be prepared to be buy theirs, which I thought wasn't a bad price. - KaraShively

Something has happened to this campground. Office had bags of stuff all over the floor.
We went to our site and phoned back asking about air tv, which is non existent. At the same time, we reported four bags of garbage in our fire pit that we didn't want to get blamed for. Said oh sorry, we will pick it up. Was still there the next morning.
No map of facilities was given.
Only good thing was the Internet was was satisfactory. Very nice picnic tables.
Feels like this place is on a slippery slide in my humble opinion. - Tworetired

Narrow road down the frontage off the interstate. Its a large field with sites spread out. Wifi wasn't usable. This was a one night stop over for us. It was good for what we needed for the night. We didn't take advantage of the facilities, but they appear quite family oriented. Friendly staff and other residents/extended stay campers. - KSU Alum

This park is near the interstate with easy access via a mile or so of paved, but narrow, road that parallels the freeway. Considering its proximity to the highway, there is not a lot of noise. The first thing we noticed was all the green space, acres of grass, great place to run the dog. They only have a few pull-through transient sites, but when we were there during midweek, there was only one other coach. The sites are very large with a gravel/grass parking area. They were close to being level. There are a lot of seasonal campers here, but almost all the RVs were in good condition and they didn't detract from the park. The park is old and this was shown in the utilities. The site we were assigned had a circuit breaker box that was just hanging from the end of plastic conduit for lack of a screw to affix it to the backing post. The threads on both water faucets were defective and we had to connect to water in an adjacent site. The ownership of the park changed recently and hopefully these problems will be repaired soon. The park has a lot of potential for one-night stays. There is no Wi-Fi and marginal service with Verizon. - ghatfield

For the rate and access to stores restaurants and highways it's pretty good value!
People friendly and pet lovable ? Plenty of state park access, stores and restaurants and museums close by, lots of lakes in the area to enjoy! - User3779

We spent one night here while traveling using Passport America. We are on a large grassy hill site overlooking I69. This is a convenient overnight stop just off the expressway. The site is open so our rooftop TV dish works. No sewer hook up. - big greg

We needed a place to stay for a night and this was convenient. We knew going in that it being a resort park it would not be our cup of tea, but it was in the right place and was easy to access the interstate. That being said, we prefer non-resort parks as we are approaching retirement age. Sites were very small and very close together. The supposed pull-thru we were assigned was a true challenge to get into. If not for the open field behind the site I would have had to drive around and back into this site due to the placement of trees. Many seasonal folks there and they would park their vehicles where ever they wanted. We were next to a seasonal site and after we got settled they had a visitor just park behind us where I had pulled into the site. Could not be bothered with saying anything as we just needed a place to sleep for the night. This is why we don't do resort type parks. We would not stay here again. - dhshaw

This is a resort park. Although it was quiet at night (they announce the quiet hours times each day) it's not quiet and peaceful during the day. It's jam-packed with activities for families. There are several playgrounds, jumping pillows, miniature golf, four swimming pools, water slides (for an additional fee) and a spectacular splash pad that will keep kids young and old (like 40 something old!) occupied for hours. Trash is picked up at your site three times a day; the camp store has a little of everything but a gallon of milk cost $5.99 so it can be pricey. The snack stand was OK but limited and it seemed like they kept running out of things, especially the ice cream flavors. The arcade was poor. Many of the games were old and out of order, and the elderly woman who staffed it actually argued with us when we lost two tokens in one of the machines. You can also rent pedal carts and pedal boats. The sites are nicely sized and although there's no real privacy, there's decent separation and numerous trees to afford some shade. The shower stalls were clean. Softened water would be nice (at this price) but not a big deal. Golf carts were numerous but at $55 a day with a two day minimum, we declined. We were in site 543 and although we could hear the interstate, it didn't keep us up at night. Perhaps those in a tent would experience otherwise. We will probably return next summer because the kids had a blast. - Fdwt994

I have mixed emotions about this place. I can give it a 10 for fun factor. There are many seasonal campers at this campground which is fine. But all of the unsupervised kids is not. Had a hard time enjoying the water activities due to this. The "lifeguards" did not see this to be a problem. For the rate we paid, in my opinion, should have included all water activities. The water slides are extra. We also did not realize this park parallels with the highway. Our site was the last row the noise was tolerable but you knew you were next to a major highway. The pools were very clean along with the shower house but I did not use them. Nice park for the kids but a tic overpriced for the entire experience. - pacevette

This resort is small with 60 sites. It is primarily a seasonal resort but they do rent by the week and the month. The resort sits on Barton Lake and each site has it's own pier. The sites are very large and are full hookup. Lots of grass and each site has a concrete pad. The resort has a very nice pool, basketball court and a playground. It sits right next door to the Jellystone Park which has water slides, mini-golf, etc that you can use by paying a daily usage fee. This resort was spotless, well maintained and quiet not to mention the seasonals are well maintained and very friendly to us during our stay. We would definitely recommend this resort if you are planning a week trip to northeast Indiana. - ppmccormick

We camped here over the 4th of July weekend. The good points are that if you have children, there are many things for them to do and there is a decent beach and nice lake with slide. For adults there were also some organized fun things going on too. If you have a boat or jet ski, this would be a nice place to stay. Now the not so good. If you have a dog stay far away. You have to carry or transport in a wagon or car your dog to the dog area. You are not allowed to walk them anywhere in the park and they are not shy about letting you know that. This is primarily a seasonal campground and they clearly do not like having the few nightly campers there. We all felt like we were intruding. Even upon check-out, no one ever asked if we enjoyed our stay. There was some noise from 80/90 as you are pretty close, but wasn't real annoying. But tent campers, be aware, where they stick you, you are almost right on the highway itself. I would NEVER camp in a tent here. It is too bad. This is a very nice park and would normally be someplace we would return to, but no way, with the vibe we felt. - campingbug

I used to stay here when I was a child, now that I have my own children, I decided to try camping there with them. It is exactly as I remember it. Wooded shady lots, friendly people, activities on the weekend. There is one bath house with three showers, and three toilets and it was fairly clean. It was kind of slow during the week, but got very busy on the weekend. Nice beach, clean lake. Will definitely return in the future. - GMcComb

This campground is under newer ownership and appears to be more suited to the seasonal camper than travelers or local families. The people at the office were not very friendly nor management team well signified. The site we were approved to set up on was apparently the parking spot used by a seasonal camper; thus creating an attitude problem for him (and therefore us) the entire weekend. The bathrooms and showers were not kept clean in a timely manner during this overly growled holiday weekend. Sites are not marked thus allowing campers and cars to be parked everywhere. I'm sure this campground was over their set capacity. The speed limit was not enforced, and with too many golf carts on the road at all hours, this created hazardous conditions for the many children roaming around. Scheduled activities were not well organized, nor conducted on-time. Our overall impressions were, obviously, not good and we would not recommend this campground to anyone passing through. There are many other campgrounds within the area, therefore my buck would definitely have been spent better elsewhere; and probably have been welcomed considering today's economy. - scrapperdmk

We camped there during the Kids Festival weekend. The location was nice... not too far away from home but far enough to "be away". They had lots of activities for the kids to do but some were a little cheesy. Our site just had electric with some grass but no shade to speak of. Luckily it wasn't a hot weekend. Wasn't exactly a quiet place but not horribly noisy. We'd stay there again in the off season. - Chic

We stayed here one night and would never go back. The place is old and rundown. There was only one gravel site and it was more dirt than gravel. The rest of the sites were grass. The electric at the sites were 20 with some 30 AMP. - corgi lovers

A really lovely place, but not very accessible for a big rig. Once you get in the campground, the sites are large and randomly placed it seemed. Lots of city park-like things to do, but it never seems crowded. WiFi is iffy. We would stay here again. - carderh

This is a very nice, clean, friendly park on a lake. The sites are in grass, big, roomy, long sites, friendly staff. They could use to trim a few trees near the roads in park. I would camp here again if in area. - 2Germans

We were made to feel very welcome at this campground. Staff was very friendly and always noticeable. Other campers were welcoming. Bathrooms and showers were clean. Park area for the kids are numerous and up-to-date. Swimming area was clean and well supervised. Would recommend this campground to anyone passing through. - scrapperdmk
