Traveling in a 38 foot coach we stayed 4 nights in a site for big rigs. If you plan to visit Cincinnati during winter there really isn't any place closer than Indian Springs Campground. If you're looking for the convenience of staying close to the city, then this is your place. The sites here are roomy with a grassy area between each. Our site was right across from the office (in the center). We had a level gravel site that was long enough for our Coach and TOAD. The office gal was super nice and friendly. Almost of the park is filled with long term tenants, they were quiet and clean. There is a highway right next to the park but at night the traffic wasn't an issue. Our satellite worked great here. If you're looking for a quiet and clean park where you can sit outside and relax... go here. We enjoyed our stay, and would go back. - JDC10

I had a lovely site, backed-up to the little lake. There are ducks and fish. Paddleboats and canoes are available. There is a little hiking trail around the lake. Staff were pleasant and helpful. The lever at the water connection to turn the water on broke, and it was fixed within 2 hours. There is an old houseboat and motorhome parked nearby. Maintenance is done daily, trash, landscaping, etc. The park is close to a large grocery store, and about 35-45 minutes from Cincinnati. Sites seem level. Some traffic noise from the nearby freeway. I am coming back next year. - Pazahora

WiFi was strong and reliable. The pedal boats on the pond were free and fun. Bathrooms very basic, but also very clean without any limits on hot water. Did not give our site a 5 because in July a little shade would have been better. - WNC Traveler

Miami Whitewater Forest Campground is located in the largest park in the county park system. The campground is clean and the new shower/restroom facility was also clean. The park is great and there are plenty of things to do outside the campground. While there, the campground was completely full. I camped in a tent, but agree that the campground is not the best for large campers and motor homes. The spaces are small and packed close together and many are hilly. My main complaint was what was already stated in a previous review. The campsites were all overloaded. 2-4 campers or tents per site with large groups staying in them in addition to having "visitors" come by in the evening. Both Friday and Saturday night, the campground did not quiet down until after 1 am. Saturday I walked by one site that had at least 30 chairs with adults in them and a hoard of children as well. Bright lights, loud music and loud conversation. Not peaceful, not quiet. - Willajean112

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

We stayed in the Thousand Trails Phase 2 section of the joint campground. We had heard that they had made a lot of improvements over the past year and they have...to the new phase 5 section. The KOA and Phase 2 section (which are very close together) the sites were lacking upkeep. A lot of swampy areas and tall grass. Our site had not been cleaned and there was a small amount of garbage we cleaned up. Our fire ring (basically paving stones stacked up) was in disrepair and unusable. We also had a very small concrete patio with a rusty grill (filled with garbage) and no picnic table. We also only could get a water/electric only site due to the number of campers. The electric service wasn't that great but the water pressure was good. Our site was surprisingly level and stable for for our travel trailer and truck. The pool is very nice and large and well kept; the main playground is large and offered a lot of different activities for our two elementary children. There are a few other small playgrounds throughout the campground that seemed to be in good shape as well. The common areas were mowed and the trees looked to be in good shape though most open sites are in direct sun with the seasonal/permanent sites in the shaded areas. The staff were very pleasant at the ranger station and camp store but we didn't see any regularly going throughout the campground. Being a holiday weekend, the place was filled to capacity but there seemed to be enough convenient garbage bins to handle the crowd. - CinciSam

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

There are two sections of this campground, one is on the Ohio River and the other is closer to state route 56 (maybe 3/4 of a mile away). The sites near the office are surrounded by apartments. We stayed on the lower level near the river in site 133. It was very quiet and peaceful. There are no trees/shade on lower level but nice sized sites. There were quite a few seasonal campers in the lower level, some nice some I wouldn't want to be around if they were going down the highway. When we arrived we were in a hurry to set up before a huge storm moved in. Got camper level, slides out, Wheels chocked and that's when we realized we had no power at our post. Had enough extension cord to confirm we had power at the site next to ours. Call the office and 40 minutes later two guys arrived in a golf cart with no tools or anything. While we were waiting for them my dog actually sniffed near the post and yelped. Walked over to see what happened and found the clamp on ground rod loose as could be. I'm assuming he got a small shock from touching it. Showed the workers the clamp but they didn't have any to replace it. Their solution was to just leave my camper plugged into the neighbors post and did offer an extension cord. Luckily our neighbors were friends of ours and they didn't mind. I also pointed out the sewer pipe in ground was broken and had no threads to hook onto and picnic table legs were broken. They mentioned they were slowing replacing all of them as most had been hit by the lawn mowers. This campground has so much potential but needs some tlc. On a plus side they're was fresh gravel on the driveway but the lots could use some as most of our site was all grass with patches of gravel. We weren't offered a different site or any type of refund for our troubles. I would return in the future but would be sure to check for power before unhooking from tow vehicle. - Kyle S

Little Farm on The River will spruce things up before a holiday, such as Memorial Day, but afterward seem to neglect the roads and lawns, especially down in the lower or hidden parts of the campground. The roads quickly become pothole ridden and muddy, especially down by the river-the lower part of the campground, whereas the top part of the campground-by the camp office is tended to as it is the most visible part of the campground. Roads and sites are dirt mixed with some gravel. Little River on The Farm requires a fee for the mini-golf, wagon rides and weekend crafts for the kids. The mini-golf is in need of repair. Contract workers(Paid by Amazon sites) are often placed in the most isolated out-of-sight and less convenient parts of the campground. For the transient guests this is not a bad place as they will be placed in the more visible and choice sites, usually on the hill by the camp office. Most of the sites FHU and pull-through, except the ones they put the contract workers(Amazon). Most sites have some trees that shade except for sites in the lower part of the campground. Garbage is picked up once or twice a day. Laundry on premise at 1.75/load. Large pool, small playground and small pond at the top part of the campground. Wifi, but I couldn't get it to work. Verizon and T-Mobile are strong and can be used to connect to the internet. Golf carts galore on the weekends. Alcohol is heavily used here, even while people operate golf-carts on a public/non-private road. People also smoke in the shower houses as there are no signs prohibiting smoking in the bathrooms/shower houses. - mynyel

Nice park, brand new! Clean, level concrete pads with landscape stone for your patio. Gated entry, check-in at lodge is well marked. Shuttle will take you to casino or town, but both are within walking distance. This is a lovely RV park, but here are the picky negatives- Pads are a tad short and narrow. If you have a long 5th Wheel, use the back-in sites along the perimeter so your tail can hang out in the grass. (Good luck finding enough room to park your truck or toad.) Cable TV probably runs on a Qam signal, which our TVs were not compatible with. Some road noise is heard from both sides of the park. No open fire allowed including fire pits and charcoal grills (gas grills are permitted). These are relatively minor complaints. Overall this is a great place to camp. We will gladly return for another visit! - Flying Mantis

Excellent park. Brand new park with wide streets, concrete pads, nice laundry, lots of grass (including a dog park). Quick check-in at the hotel. Shuttle will take you to casino across the parking lot. Nice clean casino with some restaurants. It is a little isolated but very nice. Very quiet; gated. Grassy area is fantastic for dogs!! What a pleasant surprise!!! We enjoyed our stay. - Freedom Bus

We generally shy away from municipal campgrounds (too tight, inadequate hookups) but this place is a gem. It is part of a very large county park with lots to do and costs $5 a day to come in and out with your car (or $14 for the season). But the campground is excellent, wide, concrete sites, lots of green in between, and full hookups. WIFI is strong, and good satellite reception in our pull through section. Easy to find, well off noisy highways, friendly staff. And close to downtown Cincinnati and all the attractions. We will come back. - alanez

Stayed there in 2017 and 2018, already have reservations for 2019. For this review we stayed in one of the back-in sites along the lake, see pictures from back porch, it was excellent. The only problem being that it was a bit too sloped for the jacks to level us so we had to get some ramps from CW, they worked well and we were able to get level. We've been in other sites where we couldn't get level, so if this is a concern, talk to the staff before making a reservation. All the FHU sites are on concrete pads and are very level, but we wanted shade and a site on the lake, so we were very happy with our site. The only other minor issue was the amount of golf carts running around, some driven by 8 year old kids. Overall we enjoyed our stay, we were there nearly 2 weeks and had no issues with power (30A) or water. The staff was friendly and even found a credit on our account from a previous year, so we applied that towards next year's reservation. - JimW_AZ

Pretty good campground lots of good and some bad parts. Don't count on any help from staff if there is a problem. Made a reservation 5 months in advance and reconfirmed twice more asking for satellite friendly site. It was promised but when we arrived we were under the only tree on the FHU row. No help and no call back to change sites. Still an OK park WiFi worked well and bathrooms were OK, not great but OK. just don't expect any help if there is a problem of any kind. - Phoenixaway

One of the largest state park campgrounds in Indiana, this park has it all. Hiking, boating, swimming beach and lots of wildlife. I counted 7 red birds in a tree at out campsite one morning. Our site was nice but a tree had been removed and the stump ground out so that part of the site was uneven and had no grass. Full hook up sites go fast for weekends and Holidays so book early all other sites are electric only. AT&T was 2bars and OTA TV was adequate. Visitor center is managed by the Army Corp of Engineers and has an overlook of the Dam and lake. I was told the fishing is very good. - Psi500

The park itself is nice and so is Brookville reservoir. The campsites is where the park is lacking. Tent sites should be separate from other sites. It just makes sense because of what people are looking for when they rent a site. People were running through all sites with no respect for others. Parents should teach their children better. Dogs were left at sites unattended while owners were visiting elsewhere. Yes they were BARKING. This was a nightmare. I was really disappointed. Never to return. - Joe Mallory

We stayed for two nights. Not one time did we see a DNR staff member drive through our loop. The people in the next site, left their dog tied up outside, by itself, while they visited people in a different loop. The dog barked the whole time they were gone(3 1/2 hours). There were people setting off fireworks, after dark. This is a great park, if you like to party and be loud most of the night! - No return

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

Pretty State Park, mediocre campground. Nightly rate does not include one-time $7 entry fee for Indiana residents. The campground is maintained, however the overall look is that of a place that needs some fresh investments. The men's shower house has one private shower, and then one locker room style shower room with a couple shower heads and no privacy. Also, there's no ability to adjust the temperature and we found the showers to be too hot. The sites are a little on the short side, so most folks had to park their tow vehicles sideways in order to stay out of the road. The interior roads are very narrow, and unbelievably, there is a water spigot at the only entrance to campground B- so multiple folks were filling their tanks prior to entering the campground, thus creating a backup for the rest of us trying to get in or out. Sites are electric only. The sites are generally well separated, but there is no privacy between sites. A nice canopy of trees exists on the perimeter sites but we noticed several dead branches waiting to fall that should be removed. Same goes for the pretty trails- numerous "widow makers" hung over the trails. Several days after rain we noted standing water and muddy ground, so I'm guessing this place has occasional flooding issues, judging also by the fresh straw that was placed at some of the sites. Mosquitos were pretty bad in the evenings. The camp store has only the most basic provisions; firewood is reasonably priced at $5 for eight pieces that you select yourself. At&t cell service is good, and we received several over the air TV stations. There are canoe, kayak and row boat rental available. Fishing looks decent. - Fdwt994

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

Stayed at Big Bone Lick as a base camp to attend the Quaker State 400 in nearby Sparta, KY. The girls stayed back at the park and enjoyed the clean swimming pool. Site 11 was level but did require 75 foot of water hose to reach the spigot. Bathrooms were clean and showers as well. This park is at least 10 miles from any gas, restaurants or shopping so bring what you need. - kbot

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
