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

As soon as we entered the park we were presented with a derelict RV in the boat ramp area that looked like it had been dragged out of the pond. Grounds were OK, but we found ourselves in a site with a septic tank collector in it, so the smell was terrible. We asked for another site and were allowed to move. When we were greeted, we felt very comfortable. However, the next day someone looked after the office that looked like she did not enjoy what she was doing. Very overpriced, especially with the highway noise, which was deafening. I would not stay again, ever. WI-FI was useless. Best amenity was the ice sold at $1.50 in the heat wave. NO SHADE in our site. Not worth the money. - michaelsutton

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

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

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

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

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

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

Very nice park. We pulled right up to the check in area. Excellent dog park. Friendly staff. Price for a casino park a bit high, but no other complaints. - Jim and Lynda

You have to take a shuttle to another area to check in. Kind of a pain. Sites were level, hookups work fine. Sites are not long enough for big rigs over 35. You have to unhook then park your tow vehicle beside your camper. Nice dog park. Very good for overnight. - amejame

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

Not that we would normally go to Cincinnati to camp but we had just picked up our unit and decided to give it the shakedown while still close to the Dealer where we bought it. As it turns out it was a very nice stay and I would stay there again, Close to services. Quiet & clean. Shower early. Restrooms close down for cleaning for about 45 minutes around 9am - P and K

Generally very clean, but our fire pit was completely full of ashes when we arrived, and no one ever came to clean it out. The people in the site next to us pulled in front first instead of backing in, so their windshield was facing our drivers side windows. So, no privacy. A porta potty was right across from us. On our third afternoon, our 30 amp electric kept cutting off, even though we weren't using anything except one AC and fridge. It was a very warm day, so this made our last night most uncomfortable. They said there was nothing they could do because they couldn't get an electrician until the next day. Since this is a County owned, very large park, that's really unacceptable. I feel certain the county employs many electricians. Water pressure was not too good either. Took almost 1 hour to fill our freshwater tank. They only have a few sites with full hookups and the rest are 30 amp only, with no water or sewer. Definitely not worth what they charge for 30 amp service and nothing else. It's in a sketchy area, but it is gated. The price includes a $14.00 annual entry fee you are forced to pay. Not sure I would come back. - CEB002

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

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

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
