This is a very nice state park campground. The sites are large and well defined using borders and fine gravel within the borders. This method keeps the sites very clean. As is true with all Indiana state parks, there is no WiFi, but the cell phone reception (AT&T) is very good. TV reception for us was limited to one Lafayette station. For us the biggest (only?) negative is that there is little to no shade. And the pine trees that give good privacy in the full-hookup sites can block breezes. It can get very hot in the summer. Nice bike trail. Restored 1920s farm within the park. There is a water park that is open during summer. We will stay here again. We camped at Prophetstown State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stay here every year to attend a Purdue football game. Full hook-up sites are nicely landscaped to provide privacy. Electric-only sites are large and flat with developing trees and lots of space. Very nice shower facilities. I would like to return in the summer to visit the aquatic center; it looks great. We camped at Prophetstown State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Very well set up for each site to enjoy its privacy. Directv easy to set up. Well kept, full hookup, great bike trails and pool for kids. Very level, hookups convenient to connect. One of Indiana's best State Parks. TC's restaurant in Battle Ground a can't miss. We camped at Prophetstown State Park in a Motorhome.

As far as state park camping goes, this is far above the norm. Spacious sites with front loop all full hook ups. We camped with extended family after opening of water park and enjoyed a great six days. Nice flat scenic bike trail that runs through the park and is kid friendly - no Kamikaze mountain bikers trying to get airborne. Many of the full hook up sites offer shade and privacy- electric only sites are more wide open with minimal shade. Easy to find and access and is big-rig friendly. Staff and campground host very friendly and engaging. One of our return spots. We camped at Prophetstown State Park in a Motorhome.

The full hook-up sites are large and nicely landscaped, providing some privacy between neighbors. The campground is top notch. Love to stay here for Purdue home football game weekends. We camped at Prophetstown State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We were in pull-through number 116, and it was wonderful. Private and clean and big. We had a little walk to the restoom/shower but it was quite beautiful. Restrooms were big and spotless. Wonderful bike and hiking trails. Very easy to get to. I would definitely go back. We camped at Prophetstown State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Absolutely the nicest state park campground. We had a full hookup site. It was easy to maneuver into and a quick hook up. There a plenty of trees in the campground section even though the park is a grassland park. We had bikes and took advantage of the miles of paths to ride. There are various club houses (I assume for rent, but didn't inquire). Getting to the park can be a bit tricky but just follow the website directions or signs off I-65 and its no problem. The staff was extremely friendly. Only issue is, since its a state park, there's no "late" check out. They have a standard Sunday late checkout, but nothing Mon-Sat. We absolutely would stay here again. We camped at Prophetstown State Park in a Travel Trailer.

With its tall grass prairies, Prophetstown is such a nice change from the deciduous forests of most of the Indiana State Parks. This park continues to be our favorite Indiana State Park not only because of the scenery but also because of the Historic Prophetstown farm and Native American Village, the nearby Tippecanoe Battlefield, Wolf Park Sanctuary and the proximity to Lafayette and Purdue University. The campground itself is well laid out and shows considerable thought went into its planning. The full hookup sites have sufficient vegetation that allows for considerable privacy. The electric only sites are located with a full view of the prairie. Ground was broken this October (2012) for an Aquatic Center with an additional campground to follow. Future plans include more hiking trails and perhaps a mountain bike trail. Hopefully, the park with all the upcoming improvements will still retain its quiet, peaceful nature. We camped at Prophetstown State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Very new campground with lots of large flat sites, easy to pull in and out. Half of the campground is full hookup (unheard of for Indiana State Parks) and half is electric. Comfort station in the center of electric only loop. Very new and clean. There won't be any shade for about 20 years. Great place to camp for Purdue football games. We'll be back next year.

This is one of the most beautiful campgrounds we have ever stayed at. The sites were level, there were cypress trees between sites so you had privacy. We were in the full hook up area. I think the non-full hook up area was more of an open field. The site was huge and had a fire ring. I can't remember the exact price we paid but I think my estimate is close. We loved it and would stay again. We camped at Prophetstown State Park in a Motorhome.

This was our second trip in our new travel trailer; the first was to a private-owned campground. Different vibe at the state park, it seems, and we really liked Prophetstown SP. Sites are nice and big and well-defined, partially-shaded by cedar trees, park has paved roads, full-hook-ups, clean bathrooms, great hiking/walking paths, beautiful scenery, on-site store at the 1920's type farm also sells fresh-from-the-farm produce, eggs and meat. Kiddies can pet the horses and cows, or help with the milking and gathering the eggs at specific times. Bought some loin chops and put 'em over the fire. Man, those were tasty. Nice folks all around, no late-night partiers, everyone liked our dogs, camp host was a pleasant fella. If you stay in the electric-only sites, they're wide open with no trees or shade. Several tent campers and pop-ups in that area. Easy to get in and out of the park, shopping in Lafayette is 10 minutes away. We'll visit here again!

Very nice sites in the full hookup area. The electric only area is more open. Sites are not as private and there is very little shade. There is no restroom in the full hookup area, but the restroom in the electrical area is very nice and clean. Will camp here again. We camped at Prophetstown State Park in a Motorhome.

Very nice State Park. Half of the sites are electric only. Other half are full hook-up. Full hook-up sites have shade, other side does not. Very nice bike paths, playgrounds. Ice, gifts, sundries available at the old farmstead. We will return here. We camped at Prophetstown State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This was a nice state park. Loved having the full hook up, as this is not the norm for state parks. Not much in the way of shade at this park. We understand it is fairly new as a campground, so that will come with time. We traveled from the Chicago area, and it was nice that it is off I-65, within 5 miles of the exit. We camped with our young nephew, and he really enjoyed the nature talk and walks. There are several pull through sites with lots of grass at each site. The historic area was not super special, but an interesting way to spend 45 minutes. Wonderful views in the morning. I would have given it a 10 if it had more shade and swimming facilities. We camped at Prophetstown State Park in a Motorhome.

One of the nicest Indiana State Park campgrounds. The full hookup area has nice level sites with some trees to provide privacy. The playgrounds have lots of new swings and slides for the kids. The historic farmstead is not that great, but overall it is a very nice park. Battle Ground is worth seeing for history buffs. We camped at Prophetstown State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
