This park has two sections; we stayed in the lower section along the Ohio River. This used to be our very favorite RV park, but this most recent stay was a disappointment. The road was a disaster, large potholes full of muddy water. The grass needed to be mowed, and we never did get their wi-fi to work. The final insult was: Since our last stay, the price per night went up over $10 per night. With some road repairs and general sprucing up, the park would be very nice, but I'm still not sure it would be worth $45 per night. - SW Ohio Travelers

Pool can be hit or miss with chemicals and being green. Grounds upkeep has significantly declined over the last 2 years. HUGE potholes everywhere, they have said they are adding gravel for the last 2 years, if it rains, it is a muddy mess on the roads! - AEGR

We stayed there for 2 nights with our GS camping chapter with 7 units and 1 using the very unsatisfactory cabin. The roads leading to the campsites are asphalt, but once you get to the area of the campsites the road turns to gravel and is full of numerous large potholes. On the one road you was supposed to leave out of campgrounds there was a pothole large enough to be a small pond and when I drove through it after a heavy rain with my Jeep Wrangler, I thought I was about to lose it in the pothole, it was so deep. When leaving this morning everyone try to avoid it by goin through an empty site over to the other drive which wasn't much better, but at least you wouldn't fall in. The park was very full as it was a NASCAR Weekend at Kentucky Raceway. The yard needed mowing and actually the whole park is in a state of severe array. Someone needs to get a hold of this park and clean it up or it is doomed to extinction. On a plus note, this park could be a SUPER NICE Campgrounds if someone would just give it a lot of TLC. Last but not least, it is also overpriced for what you get. Almost forgot, the Wi-Fi was atrocious, never was able to get on it. - paulbe

Found this campground just be chance online. It had only been open two weeks and they're a little unsure of the operations. Very neat and clean with concrete pads and paved roads. There are only 6 pull thrus and about 50 backins. The backins are only 40' of concrete but we were able to hang our axle over the concrete to fit (45'). Some big rigs in the wrong site might have a little hassle getting into their site. Small stoned area next to site for parking and sitting area. It would be nice to have had a picnic table. Check in is at the lodge next to the park. Very secure with a fence. Dog park. WES all fine. Wifi slow with very few users. No amenities for children. - Team Asphalt

The campground is larger than it appears. We wanted a pull thru, so we didn't stay next to the lake. It was all gravel in our area with no shade trees. There appeared to be some long-term residents. The park is well maintained. There are several odd-looking ducks that roam the campground - they are fearless but friendly, and they don't seem to leave a lot of droppings around. They have limited office hours, and no one is there in the evenings. The office staff were very helpful in person and on the phone. They don't have online reservations, which I found irritating because I prefer to do everything electronically - we sent a deposit check through the US mail to hold the reservation. There are no organized kids activities, though there were paddle boats along the water that you can use. It was close to Cincinnati, which is why we chose it. I wouldn't consider this a destination campground, though if we'd chosen a back-in site along the water I might feel differently. - Morning Star

Our 2nd stay here and not as pleasant as the first. I was quoted a rate on the phone that included a Good Sam discount so I made a reservation for the next day. When we arrived late afternoon the next day, they charged the full rate and didn't give me the discount even after I showed them my GS card! They advertise and tell you on the phone that they give the discount so I'm following up with GS about that. It was too late for us to find another overnight stop so I paid the full rate. I think that's what they're counting on if you get there late. As a self described mom and pop operation, they appear to make the rules on the fly. Some people get the 10% Good Sam discount, and others like us don't, and I don't know what criteria they used to determine that. We won't be stopping here again. - Flippitti

Small campground, sites are long but close together just off interstate. Clean, appeared well kept but mostly gravel and rock. Driveways are narrow. Nice overnight stay. There was a 'glitch' when checking in which double charged me for the stay. Owners took prompt action and refunded money via check with a few days. - FOSJ

Very nice well kept campground. The lady at the desk worked hard for me with some of my issues. Recommend to anyone. 2 minor issues for me. Leveling was one the other was we needed 2 hoses for water and only had 1. If you go be sure you have 2 hoses if you want water. - waxhands

We stayed here 4 nights to visit the Creation Museum and Ark Encounter. Spent so much time there, we didn't hike any trails or view the buffalo! Customer service was excellent. Please heed the advice to bring more hose length... we used two to reach our rig. Other than the lack of level sites, 50 amp and sewer, we loved this park and will return again for a longer stay. - Emcee

This is a very nice state park CG. We were only here overnight so did not hike any of the trails or see the bones. The sites are paved but not very level. The park is about 10 very hilly and windy miles off I-71. There is 30 amp power and water at every site. Dump station on the way out. Lots of trees, and sites are not close except for a few right by the pool/bathhouse. Well-maintained and probably jammed on busy weekends. I don't know if there is much to see/do in this area but this is a pleasant state CG for a stopover. - virginianola

Called ahead and asked for a place by the pool and under some tree coverage and verified there was wifi access.I was assured we would receive all three amenities. We asked the person who met us if we indeed were parked under shade trees and were again told we were. We get to our spot which was right by the pool but there were no shade trees. I mean we could SEE them from where we were parked but none near us.The pool was completely unsuitable for all but the frogs that called it home with 10 inches of water.Major maintenance is required to get this thing usable. Falling apart and concrete missing, metal thrown in like it's being used for garbage.
We felt deceived but had already paid. After a couple weeks of some very strange traffic I called into the Sheriff's department when the Deputy on duty advised me he would probably not stay there with his family. We witnessed underage drinking as well as numerous other sketchy activities. I never felt personally threatened, but would advise caution for travelers with kids.
We tried the little restaurant and was not surprised to find the food was unremarkable-at best-but the service was awful.The woman seemed annoyed that we actually ordered off the menu rather than using the buffet.
The owner while seemingly nice lied to us regarding the 3 major things we requested over the phone. She informed me we had access to wifi but when we got there she would not relinquish the pw to us claiming she did not know it and the server at the restaurant told us nobody ever gets it.
I had a difficult time contacting the owner when calling (which really should have been my first clue)-I kept getting the "restaurant" and the owner was the only person who would discuss sites but was never around.
I would not go back as things are. This was clearly a very nice place at one point. If someone were to take some care and renovate the park and pool, maybe add a little security..I would consider giving it another shot.Until then-Beware. - Hart_Serenity

Need better direction signs inside the park. Had to ask 2 different people directions to office. Last one led me to location in his golf cart. Interior roads are gravel. Very friendly staff. Passing through and will stay here again if in the area. They have a restaurant on the premises. - RockenL

Getting to this park requires good advanced mapping and intuition; there could be more directional signage. This park is not suitable for long 5th wheels and motor homes. The park map does not show the steep grades and very tight curves with large trees close to the narrow one-way road. Very few sites are level. Bring plenty of blocks. It was very difficult to back into my site due to the trees and the location of the electric post. Plan to drive your rig to the water station to tank up before backing in and setting up. Heavily wooded. Only electric hook-up. Camping is a long way from the rest of the park which has no place for swimming. The bath house is new, very clean and free. - Osita5

The campground is in a nice park facility with a great play area for the kids located down by the lake. It is not real close to the campground though.
We also had to purchase an annual county park pass to be able to get in ($10.00).
The reason for the average rating is very few of the sites are level. Many of them are slanting downhill so it is hard to get level.
They could use a little better signage directing those who do not live here to the campground and check in. We drove past it the first time and had to call to find out where to go.
Also, even though they have a maximum camper limit of 6 people and two tents (or one camper unit and one tent) per site there were several that had many more than that, one having at least 18 people in it and one with 4 tents.
Their dump station is also located on a hill making it hard to get completely empty.
It is a very busy park on the weekends with lots of tent campers - 3 to 6 tents per site.
I would recommend this campground in certain areas only and during the week if possible. - prstlkid

This campground is very close to my home, so we camp here pretty regularly. The upper sites are rather hilly, and most of the lower sites are mostly level. There are a few towards the bottom that have a bad slope, though. There is a playground located in the bottom section, as well. The park offers a lot of attractions (a snack bar, water park for little kids, paved bike trails, disc golf, fishing, hiking trails) and the campground features decent sized sites with plenty of shade. The bathrooms and showers have always been clean when we have camped, and the campground is monitored regularly by park rangers who are friendly and not overbearing. We have a pop-up so without a toilet, so we do not have the problem with the dump station that I keep reading about. Overall, if you are looking for a quiet campground with a lot of activities within the park, I would definitely recommend this park. - McLovin Camper

Stayed for 4 nights while visiting family in the area. Always stay at this park when visiting in this location.
Stayed in "C" loop. The restrooms were clean, but they are starting to show their age. Don't like the gang shower, but there is a single available.
This is a pretty park which is well maintained. New picnic tables at our site. Fire wood is available from the campground host. We didn't buy wood therefore I don't know the cost. Hiking trails are close to the campground. There is a lake for kayaks or canoes. Camp store is close to the lake. Saw lots of horse trailers, and they can use trails designed for the horses.
I'm not used to paying an entrance fee to the park, and it's in addition to the camping fee. $9.00 entrance fee for out of state people.
Versailles is close if groceries or other supplies are needed. - Dennis D

Only visited A loop, but would not recommend that section for motorhome or trailers. Very tight narrow road with trees. Sites looked very small and difficult to back into. - Cicero Cachers

This is a nice park with all sites paved and all roads paved as well. Again, be aware most Indiana state parks don’t have water or sewer available at the sites, and this one was no exception. However, there are plenty of water filling stations throughout the park. Real negative about this park is the dump stations. They have only one station with two pipes. You will wait a while on a Sunday with only having one station. They really need to add more. We stayed in the B loop site 116. Nice site tucked into the woods. They are attempting to grow grass on this site, and had hay down. This is probably a hard task with all of the tree cover and constant foot traffic in and around the site. Stay away from Loop A if you have a larger rig (20+ft) as it is super tight and all the perimeter sites are best suited for pop ups. The interior sites are not quite as shady, but still have big trees. The C loop has some nice sites, but be aware that many of those perimeter sites have a large sloping driveway and would be difficult for a larger trailer to get level. I believe the tongue of the trailer would be on the ground and the back of the trailer a good 3-4 ft high in the rear. It was a holiday weekend so it was very busy, but not overwhelming. The bathhouses are older, but seem to be cleaned a few times a day. The pool is nice. They have a huge lake and multiple playgrounds in and around the park. We will stay here again I am sure, just wishing the state would pony up and install water at all of the sites. AT&T wireless has 5 bars and Verizon has 3 bars. Beware that some of the sites will not have access to the southern sky due to trees. Site 166, however, faced Southwest and made it easy to find Directv satellites. One more thing, they charge $7.00 to enter the park, not included in your paid camping fees, and the pool is $3.00 per day to use it as well. The pool is a good 5 min drive from the campground. - jmcmanama

We stopped here for two nights on our way to Ohio and loved it so much we stopped on our way back. Very clean and well maintained. Laundry room was great. Spacious sites with cement slabs and roads are paved. Would definitely recommend this park for an overnight stay or a week long stay. - Coach Perry

Very nice park that is clean and well maintained. Back-in or pull thru sites are available. Our pull thru site was concrete, level and long enough to stay hooked up with our 43' 5th wheel. Plenty of space between sites, patio, picnic table and fire ring. Free wi-fi, large play area for kids, pool, catch and release pond and a walking/bike trail. Kentucky Speedway about 10 miles away. - travelswithpuppies

Checking was very fast and easy. Excellent staff. Very well maintained park in a good location for venturing out or staying in to take it easy. Roads, sites, and patios are paved with nice grass between the sites. Some sites back up to a lake which is catch and release. We saw people catching fish every time we sat out by the lake. We stayed for two weeks and will definitely stay here again. - Hobbes

We stayed on the Thousand Trails side. We had made our reservations about 3 weeks in advance, reserving a full hook-up, 50 amp service pull-thru. When we checked in, we were given a map, and told find a site that we liked. The employee told us that here are the 3 phases, and she circled them on the map. Phase 2 and 4 had pull-thrus, but she didn't know what sites were available, what sites had full hook-ups, what sites had 50 amp, and what sites were just water and electric. She did know that phase three was just water and electric. We drive around, ran into some low hanging branches in phase 3, where another employee directed us to phase 5, which also was a mix of full hook-ups, some with 30 amp, some with 50 amp, and some with just water and electric. After a third employee stopped us and helped us, we were able to find a site. We ended up in phase 2, where our site was mostly grass, and not level. We were able to level the coach by placing pads under the rear wheels. The water and sewer were in the driver side and the electric was on the passenger side, so we had to run the electric under the coach. Then it rained for a couple of days and the fire pit and sewer connection were under water. Our thoughts are, if you are going to take reservations and charge $52 per night, you should at least be able to tell people what site that they reserved, instead of telling them you need to go find your site. - Bbtj

We have stayed in many RV parks, but this is, by far, in the top 5 worst. Yes, it's huge, but only 2 sections really count for Thousand Trails and "phase 2" which is where you're sent, is VERY unlevel gravel sites; the hookups are very confusing, (not sure which hook up goes to which site and many have to be shared part sewer part not (and the maps numbers don't jive with the posts so you don't know) and today they turned our water off for part of the day, with no notice, because they were doing some work elsewhere. The pool was not swimmable (unless you like to swim in 60 degree water) and much of the rest of the park is like broken down single wide mobile homes. There is another couple areas - one huge area for KOA (only one RV in there) and "phase 4" which looked ok, but we're full of what looked like permanent sites. Couldn't believe this is a Thousand Trails park. You had to check in at the store and they give you a paper scan card for the gate...that is car level. You best hope you don't come in your class "a" by yourself because you won't reach. - JoWood

We stayed in the Thousand Trails part of this campground. Grounds seemed nicely maintained as well as the campground buildings. We did not use the pool. The pull throughs in Phase 2 - area P (where we stayed) are in need of maintenance. Our site was mostly grass growing with some gravel and dirt areas. Water lines look to have a temporary fix using washing machine hoses. Good water pressure (60 lbs). Our site was fairly level. Grass had been mowed recently. Sign at entrance telling TT members to go to the main gate to check in. There are two check in areas. Both located in the Campground store. One for TT and one for KOA.
At the main gate there is an intercom you need to use if no one is there. A little difficult to understand. Had to use the intercom and was told to go back to the store/gas station to register. Registration personal were helpful and friendly. We were able to get 50 amp service with FHUs. A nice plus for me is the campground allows washing your RV and vehicle. But you must purchase a $5 'washing permit'. - Rufas

Park is very tight quarters coming in expect your privates to draw up as you cross the small bridge to check in, big rigs be careful. Then after you check in you will have to do a tight turn around to go back to the pull-throughs. And when you get there- no sewer. The dump is back at the check-in area. Dont get me wrong this place is ok, but if you want full hookup keep traveling. - Pauldodge1

The restrooms need an overhaul. The restrooms as far as I am concerned do not get the cleaning they should, need bleach to clean. The site was good, along with water pressure. Everything else was ok. - A_lan

Overpriced for what you get. Filthy bathrooms, even though they are closed from 12-1 every day. Out of soap and paper towels in men's room, told to wait until cleaning time. This was at 9am! Still same trash and dirt in showers after cleaning time. Men's room is NOT handicapped accessible. My husband is a big guy with mobility issues and struggled big time. Very rude owners! Upkeep is at a minimum here. It seems they cater to drunks who like bad country music. If you can call it that. Will never return here again. - Maria Jones
