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

New park. Excellent sites with adequate parking for additional vehicle. Electric, water, sewer and catv connections good and convenient. WiFi excellent signal. Little to no shade though due to new trees not yet established. Very easy in and out. - Martini Chuck

This appears to be a new RV park. The sites are all concrete with stone between the sites. The bathroom are very clean and spacious. The only gripe is the sites are not long enough to accommodate having your RV and tow vehicle. One has to park the tow vehicle perpendicular. The sites are close together. But that is about the only negative. The casino is about a 2-3 minute walk away. Buffet and two other restaurants to eat at. The town is about 10 miles away with more choices and a Wal Mart for groceries. Can't comment on the casino itself as we didn't set foot in it. One other thing, you check in for the RV park at the hotel located next to the campground. - minnow

This is a nice place but way over priced for what is here and we will not return for that reason. It is well maintained and clean. The park is so new the concrete pads are not even stained. There are about 8 bathrooms in the middle and a laundry with 3 washers and dryers. There are only 6 pull through spots. If you have a bigger rig like ours, 44 ft, pick a site that you can back in from one of the through roads in the park. There are gravel pads along each site but ours is not deep enough for our pickup to fit. We had good verizon and at&t signals and all sites are sat friendly. One nice thing, and probably due to the cost to stay here, we shared the entire park with 6 others through the middle of the week. There is a security gate to get in and out and a shuttle pick-up to the Casino. - Ghettomedic

Grounds are well kept, help are very nice, laundry is great, but it is a stop over and overpriced. Noise from the highway can be heard even with air and fans running. - lwabend

One of very few options available in the Cincinnati area, Indian Springs was our base for 2 nights for visiting the Creation Museum. Campground is immediately next to I-275, and road noise is significant. About 12 pull-through spaces are available, the rest are back-in. Most of the lakeside back-in spaces are rather short, not suitable for large motorhomes or fivers. Many long term/seasonal residents. Park is well-maintained but very basic. - expdek570

Camped here with our new 5th wheel, it is right next to freeway, but the freeway is higher elevation then park, and they have a buffer with trees in between the freeway and campground. So the noise you hear isn't that annoying, ended up staying 3 nights. Are site was very level and the utilities were very placed on our site. They gave you a printout with directions for local grocery stores and restaurants. Would definitely stay there again if ever passing through there. - Tunnelman

Decent state camping park. Sites are not very level. You will need at least two or possibly three water hoses here. Showers dated but acceptable. Small store sells ice and other items. Mini golf is also available as well as a swimming pool. Very nice setting. - sjwake

Smaller park with well spaced out sites. However, many sites are very unravel despite being asphalt....plus, not big rig friendly. Tight fit for our 32' fifth wheel. Nice pool, though small, and it was not being refilled with water...level clear went down. There is a nice putt putt course, sadly there was a tree that had fallen down on the course some time ago and never cleaned up. Camp hosts were active putting reservation forms on site poles. Dump station was adequate. Water source was shared between two sites...thankfully, we had 50' of hose. Convenient to half way point to family in Louisville with camper. So, we will probably stay here again...it's ok and works for us. Met nice people from Louisiana and North Dakota. - Jitime40

We live close and wanted to take our granddaughter camping for a couple of days and chose Big Bone....the site was fairly level but a lot of the sites are not so beware when you make a reservation you may need some blocks. The electric was fine, but I needed the third hose to get to the water spigot, so make sure you got 75 feet of hose. No full hookups, but the dump station is easy in and out The sites are somewhat large but open, so privacy is not going to happen.There are trees throughout the campground, so there is some shade at most sites. The restrooms were clean and plenty of hot water. We got a lot of over the air TV stations and cell signal, ATT, was for the most part was non existent Interior roads are big rig friendly, sites are asphalt with a gravel patio area with picnic table and fire ring. Staff was nice as always, putt putt, pool and playgrounds for everyone. Don't forget to go and see the Bison, not as big as the ones at Yellowstone. It's a nice park to relax and visit the Ark or the Creation Museum that are close by. We will stay here again. We feel this is a very family friendly park and encourage you to enjoy it sometime. - smoky40

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

This is a very nice, peaceful park that is the second largest in the Indiana state park system. It is well designed: the sites are all close to a shower/bathroom facility. Those facilities were clean and had good hot water. They seem to be strict about only one tow vehicle per site, but overflow lots available for extra vehicles. The area is beautiful in the fall, with many sites in the woods.
Site grades inside loop are flat. Grades on perimeter sites vary widely, from almost flat to quite steep. Flat ones often have picnic table and fire pit a little downhill and with a beautiful view. It's probably best to see one of these sites that you want to reserve before doing so, as the descriptions on the reservation site of the pad steepness are not too accurate. - GregAndKatie

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

Excellent facility in southwest Indiana. We had a minor problem with the electric box while here. Maintenance came over and fixed it within 5-10 minutes. The campground is clean and well maintained. The only reason that I didn't rate it higher is that there isn't a lot of shade on the sites. The sites themselves are extremely level. Hookups are easy to access. This is probably the nicest commercial campground we've stayed at. Kudos to their staff. Great folks. - OhioBill

The park is very nice with asphalt interior roads except for the one in front of our site which was gravel. Looks like they have plans for future expansion. Our site was a long pull through concrete pad with gravel at the ends. Many of the sites are advertised as 55 ft and had asphalt entry. All sites have a concrete patio with picnic tables and grass in between the sites. The area between sites is spacious. The park is surrounded by green pastures on one side and trees on others. The water pressure was not great, but that could have been our inline pressure regulator instead of the park pressure. Although there is a cable connection, and the park brochure indicates cable (website says they no longer have cable), I called the office and they said it was turned off at the end of last season. No TV via antenna. No trees so the satellite worked well. Garbage is picked up at site. They will let you wash on site. Verizon worked well. Closest Walmart is 20 miles in Carrollton, KY. An IGA grocery store is about 5 miles away. The park has WiFi but didn't use. Did not use any of the park amenities. Rates were very reasonable. We stayed 4 nights for the price of 3 nights. We happened to be here at a time they were offering a spring special BOGO. Also Good Sam's discount. - Traveling and Living

A park that caters to self contained RVs. Nice sites with concrete pads and was quiet. Used as our base for exploring and visiting Arkencounter and Creation Museum. - Rmpbap

The roads we used had a lot of potholes. The fire ring was a bunch of landscaping rocks in a circle. It seemed that there were a lot of "workcampers" upon seeing all the things around their sites. It's a big park. Our graveled site was fairly level. The way the "ranger" took us to our site, i had to place the water and power cord under my rig. - 1dinky

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

This park has a lot of full time RVers. But with that being said, they have a transient section with only 19 sites, of those 15 are W/E/50 amp and 4 are W/E/30 amp, and all 19 do not have sewer. With that few sites, you have to make reservation early. I made reservation on April 7th, for a site on May 30th, and all the 50 amp were reserved by the end of March. I did manage to get a 30 amp site and was really happy. All the sites that they have are all back-in. This park is clean and friendly. It is 17 miles from the Ark Encounter. They are opened all year round. We have a 45' coach and were able to maneuver the campground road and back in our site. We would use this park again, if we pass through this area. Just make reservation EARLY. The showers were clean with 4 stalls. The showers have tile floor and 3/4 the way up the wall. - Honeybear & Sugarbear

Unfriendly service! When you check in they take your money & then give you a map and you are on your own to find your site and manage to get backed in. The sites are mostly short and narrow back ins. The sites are narrow that we had to step out into the mud after a rain. Had to pull the truck & trailer out of the site to even get into it without walking through mud. 50 amp service was good. Poor cable & no WiFi service. Site was not mowed and was unkept. Long term renters are located in the back of park. Short term are crowded together in the front of the park. Thankful it was only for 1 night. - Texan58

We have a 21 foot truck pulling a 35 foot fifth wheel. There are a couple of tight turns in this campground, but they are manageable with care. Plus, there are a couple of elevated spots which add to the aggravation, but we never bottomed out. That said, we found this a good location for visiting the Ark Encounter and Creation Museum and south Cincinnati. Campsites are gravel and close, but not tight. The transient spots are up front and that area has trees only along the creek. There is no sewer, but the electric and water were fine and our phones and satellite worked. The staff are friendly and helpful. There arent tons of camping options in the area, so if you are OK with what you read here then you will be OK staying here for a few days visit. - darwinmoore
