12 RV Parks near Boonville, Indiana

Very quiet. The wagon wheels are difficult with a 32' trailer. I would try to get one of the full hookup pull thru sites, unless you have a shorter unit. Getting into the sites is very tight. They need to be larger in diameter. Everything is convenient for hooking up. Staff is very friendly and helpful. When coming into Boonville on hwy 61, don't turn onto Poplar. Its a very difficult turn onto a narrow street. I'd go through the town square and go straight onto another East bound street. Then turn left several streets down to get to Poplar. - chucky2

Nice campground with a big fishing and swimming lake, playgrounds, shelter houses, four rental cottages and an enclosed pavilion available to rent.
The only negative about this park is that the sites are gravel and there's very little of it. The area around the campers are very loose dirt that tracks into the camper. It would have been much worse had it been rainy and turned to mud. - kc9mls

A small, wooded, public park. My site was in the open. Some longer term guests were evident. Staff at the front desk were friendly. Flat gravel sites, I had to back into site #26 but thank heavens the site in front was open so I went in and back in straight. Good AT&T and Verizon signal, no wifi. - RVStudent

Great value for full 50 amp hookups! Sites are close together, but everyone has been very friendly. Park was filled on the weekend we were there (no holiday). There's a playground for kids and area is very well maintained, clean and quiet. Hiking trails are grown over but there are drives you can walk. Local police also patrol area. - Cajun Nana

This city run park is good for travelers on I-64. I had made an advance reservation and was booked for site 11. Arrived in early afternoon but no one was at check-in. Went directly to the site and set up. Nothing fancy about the park, good basic utilities. Took a walk around the campground and looked at the lake. The lake is a result of coal mining back in the 70's and stretches for miles. It looked clean and people catch fish. Good cell service and sites are open sunlight so had good satellite service. On exit the next morning the attendant was at the check-in booth so paid my camping fee on the way out. Will stay here again for the convenience to the interstate. - Nautilus

Great overnight campground. Our GPS did not find the park using the address on the website. Ask for directions! Gravel sites. They let us use 2 sites so we didn't have to unhook. - Marian Hertzog

ALERT...We were going to camp here and called when about 1/2 hour away. We got a message on their answering maching that they were out of business and a subdivision was being developed on the property. Please call before you go. - Michael Fiehler

What a wonderful find! we came for a day and stayed a week. Nice staff, big wide sites, beautiful surroundings to include a fishing lake. We used it as a base to visit everything within an hours drive. From New Harmony to Evansville to Lincoln park. - User156

For once, I agree completely with the previous reviewer. The information contained in this review is very accurate and I can only restate it. I add that we also stayed in one of the few pullthus in the park and it was a very long way to the restrooms. I suggest if you want a pull-through so you don't have to disconnect the tow vehicle, call ahead to reserve the site as they have very few of this type. The park is located in a very rural area (reclaimed coal mine), is quiet but located not too far from the interstate highway. Really, this is the kind of quiet park in a beautiful setting where we would enjoy staying for much more than the overnight stop that we did. Recommended. Big rigs will have no problem here. - busguy

Rundown, hard to find place. We tried two different sites to find electricity, but no luck. No shade, too many mosquitos. We told managers, we were leaving, could not stay with no power, temperature was 105 degrees. - Joe Bounder

The only reason we will stay at this park again is because we strolled through and made a list of the better sites, knowing which ones to ask for, next time.
There isn't much conformity in the sites, with a few being paved, but most are gravel. Many of those need a dose of Roundup to kill the vegetation that is taking over the parking site or -better yet- just bring in more gravel.
The park has a drainage problem. We were assigned a site that meant stepping right into a puddle when we exited our Class C. We had to go buy a tarp to lay over the puddle so that the dogs wouldn't track in a mess. When we walked the grounds, we noticed many of the sites had problems with standing water. That probably bodes poorly for later in the year, with mosquitoes.
The showers are OK. One thing to note is that they are "army showers." The water stays on for about 45 seconds and then you have to push the button for more. The cubicles are very small; the outside section where you leave your clothes is very-very small.
One thing I like is the presence of a security rover, around-the-clock. Not that this is a dangerous area, but it is nice to have someone to flag down if there is trouble.
Overall, it is an OK park. Quiet, in a very scenic area, but there aren't many conveniences, for all that it's a touristy spot. We will probably stay again, but this time I know which site to ask for. - ChinTravelers

We have stayed here three times in our travels around the country! This is my favorite park! We have only ever been here on October and it is absolutely beautiful and peaceful. The leaves are yellow, orange, purple ....exquisite!
This last time it rained and we were in our Motorola looking at the lake enjoying the view.....very cozy. The people are so nice! We will come again perhaps a different season. - Brandl

Very nice state park next to National A. Lincoln memorial and Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial (Very nice); wooded campground w/ plenty of space; W & E, dump station. - North Texas DJC

As stated in other reviews there aren't many RV parks in the area so for the price this one is satisfactory. We stayed 1 month for $420. which included 522 kwh of elec, 30 amp. Campground info states they have WiFi at each site which is true, but the quality is questionable at best. We did get things done but patience is required. The sites are grass/dirt, roads gravel. The playground for the kids could have been awesome, lots of play statues, etc but the upkeep is non existent. In short if you are not expecting a lot this will work. - k m m

There are not very many campgrounds/RV parks in this area close to I-64. We were travelling on a weekend and all the county and state parks in the area were full. This campground does not take reservations and is strictly first come first serve. It is an old campground that from the building construction may have been a KOA. The mini golf and play ground have seen better days. Most of the sites were grass, but some appeared to have a gravel base in the past. The grounds were clean and the grass mowed. The attendant was friendly and very helpful. The full hookup sites appeared to be fairly level side to side. Most of the water and electric sites were not. Many of the sites were too short for us to stay hooked up at 56' in length. Most of the full hookup sites were occupied by long term stays working in the area. Our water and electric site had a 30 amp RV receptacle but only a 25 amp breaker. The $40.00 a night was high for an overnight but did include what appeared to be a 10% lodging/sales tax tax. - trailertraveler

The sites were level (due to traffic leaving our previous location we arrived around midnight). I was able to get into my spot and leveled on the 1st shot. We had 2 other people with us who had NEVER been camping before and they found all of the facilities to be clean and up to date. The entrance to the RV Park is about 500 feet past the entrance to the 4H Center. - ETCTA

This park is old and run down and has a lot of long term construction workers staying here. The sites are gravel, un-level and right on top of each other. They have cable TV on the power pedestal, but you have to go to the office and rent a converter box. They have Wi-Fi but the signal is so weak that it won't do anything but hook up and unhook constantly. I never did get on line and had to use my minutes on my hotspot. Sewer pipe is sticking way too high out of the ground, hard to use with a small travel trailer that is low to the ground. The only reason I gave the park four stars is because of the location. If you need to be in Evansville, it is close to town. The lady in the office was nice and helpful. - Mark Ford

I put 0 for the price because we couldn't find anyone to pay. I agree with review from last year. They need a camp host to better manage the place. Picnic tables need replacing. Beautiful fair grounds to walk and bike. - silverfox9

The park has a Christmas Theme and is not big rig friendly. All sites are narrow back in accessible through narrow tree covered roads. The park supports the adjacent amusement theme park. Internet was good. Couldn't deploy satellite due to trees. Nice camp stores. Lots of "park rangers" to help back you back in. This is a large park that almost mandates renting golf carts (and they rent them). That said, there is more of a "feel" of camping in the woods. The park is clean and well managed. Kids would love this place. - Russ60

This is our 3rd and last visit. Rental king park model camper. Had to wait 1.5 hrs after check-in, as they had not prepped our rental. Trailer was full of ants, had to keep ALL food items in the fridge. Floor in master bath near shower was rotting out. Sagged if you stepped on it. Had a bad thunderstorm, roof leaked flooded floor in master bath and also at the other end of the camper near the kitchen. Disapointing to say the least! - Scott Grimes

We stayed here on a Saturday before July 4th. Our site was trashy and there were remnants from sewer. We called the check in booth, told them about the nasty site and asked them if they can give us a different site. They were very accommodating and gave us a couple of options but not much better than what we initially had. We settled for a different site. Granted it was a holiday and busy weekend, Lake Rudolph management should have been on top of this.
It's convenient if you're visiting Holiday World but $71 a night is pricey for what you get. They used to offer Good Sam's discount but not anymore. - RTDenn

Awesome campground for a quiet peaceful weekend. Not a lot of extra amenities, but there is a swimming lake, walking trails, fishing, and a playground. There are ducks and geese to watch. The camp manager is very friendly and helpful. This is a small, beautiful, peaceful campground. We will return. - KellyF

I stayed here two nights in Site 10 while passing through in a 27 foot motorhome with a tow car. Don't get site 10! Or 1-12 for that matter. Best sites are in the 20s, 30s and 40s which are in the back of the park past the bath house. The campground is right off the road. It is buffered by a stand of trees but there is still lot of noise off US 41. However it is also very convenient for the same reason. This is a large CCC park with many day use activity areas and a first class museum on Audubon which is contained in a French chateau built by the WPA in the 1930s. The campground is definitely dated. It has narrow roads and narrow pads which are almost randomly placed. But the sites are paved, and there is a lot of nice grass and big shade trees and you don't at all feel like you are in the middle of a city. I was there in the middle of the week and there were many open spaces so it felt very spacious. With all the sites filled it would be very crowded. Make sure you have a long water hose. Spigots are close to random and often very far away and on the wrong side of the site. Mine was next to my neighbor's fire ring. Some sites are seriously not level. Some sites have adjoining car parking but some don't. There are many walking trails in the park but only one for dogs which is described as "fairly difficult." It was that and more. Wifi is a subscription service and costs $3.99 a day. Verizon service was excellent. There are separate tent sites. Didn't use bath house. Didn't use dump station -- sign said $5 to dump. Rate reflects Kentucky 10% senior discount. Doesn't include the $7.50 it costs to reserve the site. If you are coming during the week I suggest saving the reservation fee and just drop in and pick out a site. You are more likely to get something you like. - SoloRed

Audubon State Park has a lot to offer: camping, cabins, lake, golf course, and the museum. The campground, however, shows wear. It's a small campground, crammed next to a busy highway at the park's entrance. Many sites were deeply shaded and had paved pads, but the pads weren't very wide and some are quite short. Companion vehicle parking is available with some sites on a separate paved pad. Not sure that detail is noted on the reservation form, so it might be best to call. One bath house present and a small, one-hole dump station. We arrived on a Sunday afternoon, departed late Monday morning and never saw a host to check us in. There might have been camp wifi, but we didn't have the code. We paid for our night via the after hours drop box.
Parking at the museum is limited, but it's a short walk from the campground. Interior roads are quite narrow, so it'd be best to drive a tow around the park. We used this campground as an overnight stop because we had a favorable impression when we stayed at the cabins 10 years ago. Now I'm not so sure I'd return again with an RV due to the cramped and noisy conditions and overall wear of the property. - Flying Mantis

Audubon State Park is a little funky in its location: the park is located on US 41 in Henderson, but when you pull in, you go from city to wilderness in about 100 yards. The gal at the check-in gate allowed us to check in early. Sites are crowded together pretty close. Our site, number 5, had electricity and water, but the spigot and electric box were located about 40 feet from the camper. Shower houses were dated and in need of a little cleanup. Could've been because it was Sunday morning, but showers were a bit dirty. I think this state park would be one that would appeal to those who want the "away from it all" experience, yet want city amenities like restaurants and night life. Ellis Park is located 3 miles north of the state park for Horse racing fans. - Prairie Bayou
