Very quiet and friendly park, staff was wonderful and very helpful. The park is in dire need of some upgrades but to no fault of the park itself more so from corporate not investing in this gem of a park. Much needed are upgrading the electric and also a NEED for more sites for the transit folks. This is getting to be a popular place so getting a full hookup spot can be very hard. - DBLR

Rate reflects that we are holders of a Thousand Trails Family Courtesy card - so actual cost was $0 (no additional charge for 50 amps at this campground). You never know what site you're going to get at Thousand Trails as your reservation just says that you can get "a" site. This campground is nice because they tell you which sites are available and will let you know where you are likely to fit. There are a number of seasonal sites at this campground, but the seasonal folks keep their sites up very nicely. The seasonal folks who were near our campsite had a garden and offered us fresh vegetables! There are quite a few walking trails that are accessible for bikes or golf carts as well. - pattic777

This is a beautiful park. Very wooded with several lakes on the property. There were a lot of seasonal campers with lots set up like second homes. We stayed the Saturday after 4th of July and were treated to a fireworks display. - Bonnie Lee

This is a small county campground. The sites are gravel, the spaces tight, but level. The utilities are a bit weird, electric on one side, water and sewer on the other. Glad we had extra hose. There were only a couple other campers here. The bathrooms are clean, but need updating. We were here about 4 days visiting family. - esta34950

Needed a last minute reservation for an overnighter while passing through. Little did I know it was the annual Covered Bridge Festival in Parke County, In and the core was in Rockville. The park normally has a two night minimum but they accommodated us for one night. On arrival, a staff member walked me to the site and advised us where to unhitch the tow. The campground is small, has a community feel to it and is a great location for the festival. The sites are tight with minimal pull through. Utilities worked well and it was a fairly quiet place. I would stay here again. - jl2000

This is an unrestricted county park so the trailers/vehicles were a lot older and vintage, lets say. The turnarounds at the end of each loop were pretty tight and we are in a 21' TT. We just stopped there the night so could not delve into the amenities but the staff was nice. - Fizbin

This is a county park with a lot of beautiful trees. Unfortunately the paved roads are very narrow with sharp turns. We drive a 34 foot motorhome and pull a car behind us. While trying to find a spot we had to unhook our car from the tow dolly to navigate a turn. When we called to make a reservation we asked if they had full hookup (water, electric and sewer). When we got there we were told no sewer, just a dump site. We decided to deal with it. We ended up not staying as the electric and water hook ups were about 100 feet apart and we could hook up to one but not the other. For us it was a very poor layout. - esta34950

We stayed three nights. Very small spaces, had to go out and move my truck for they could come in with a motor home. Really not a place to park tow truck. Lots are really close together a picnic table can fit in between. Could never get cable to work. WIFI worked for me but not wife's computer. Couldn't put dish up a lot of trees, trees not bad really. The people where nice that checked us, when they finally got to the desk, we arrived at three pm. It took for ever to get checked in. If I was to stay another three nights I'D find another place, I would stay one night if I had to. 1st KOA I stayed in and they do want to nickel and dime you. My guests drove in, picked us up and the owner didn't say any thing, but the owner didn't see it, either. - JustDon

We only stayed here for one night on our way through the area. The woman who checked us in didn't seem to know too much about the park, i.e. trails, etc. We were in site AA-36, a pull-through which worked fine once we figured out that we were side by side with the neighboring motorhome, with our rigs facing opposite directions. The utility hookups were in the center between us, and it was a long run for some of the utilities. It would be nice if the website for this park would have a diagram of each site's location. We would have picked a different site. The park itself is very nice, lots of open fields and trails through the woods. We saw a deer and two fawns in the afternoon. It was very quiet and pleasant. Of course this was midweek after school started locally. Unfortunately we didn't get any Verizon service, which is important to us for more than a one night stay. - dbcordello

We stayed one night while touring the covered bridges in Parker County, Indiana. Site 30 was a pull through and we had no neighbors. Many families and children present and active. Enjoyed walking the dogs on the park roads. - Sunnie-Wheelhouse

First to say that we were very impressed with the facility. We found it to be family friendly, pet friendly, and really quite peaceful. There was lots to do here, including nature trails, playgrounds, horseshoes, and a large fishing lake. We knocked down our review points a bit because we had to move our rig into 3 different spots before we found one that would really work. Our first site, #36 (pull-through), had a sewer hook up about a foot and a half off the ground. This made it impossible to dump or to support your hose appropriately. In fact, when we tried to dump, the height and weight on our sewer hose was so great that it broke! Luckily it was grey water and luckily we were able to fix it without much trouble. Staff was VERY accommodating in moving us, but was quite clear that no refunds were possible. At all. We next moved to site #30 (back-in), but water and electric utilities were on the wrong side of the rig and our water hose wouldn't reach. We then moved to site #31 (back-in). All was good there, but it was certainly a hassle to move 3 times. Know that sites 30 and 31 were 50 amp only. We had to get an adapter from the front desk and they took our credit card as a deposit. We would absolutely camp here again, but only knowing the right spot. In order to save on utility installation, it looks like electric and water were only installed at every other site. Be aware of this when making reservations and make sure that your hook-ups are quite long. - mnlfish

We were in site 22. The restrooms are a long way from the back sites where we stayed. The electric hook-ups are on the wrong side of the site for RV's, which I do not understand why. In the sites up front they are in the middle of the pad area???? This worked but in the future in the area I will look for another place. All sites are gravel and not quite level. - MINomad

Nice country park with a very friendly host. Sites are gravel. There are only four 50amp sites and they are all back in sites. Sites are wide and easy to maneuver in. Took a little bit to get level as the back was on sloping ground. The host asked for all pets names in case of any emergency. We love our fur babies and thought that was extremely thoughtful! - Marley B Jones

Great place to stay while visiting Parke County, Indiana. Owners are friendly and accommodating. Very busy during Covered Bridge Festival so reservations are necessary. Our site #28 was off the highway and quiet, but far from shower house. - Looney Bird

We have been full-time travelers for six years. Never, have we been treated with such disrespect from a park owner. Our overnight pull-through was extremely un-level. To make matters worse, it was pouring rain and the space was nothing but mud. Our 40 foot motorhome would have tipped over if we tried to level. The girl who checked us in offered the adjacent space, which was OK. We accepted and we went to the office to make the change. Subsequently, the park owner came to the office and said we could not have the better site, even though it was not reserved. He disputed the dilapidated condition of the site and refused to go look at it. At that time he said, "you're out of here". We were shocked that he was going to kick us out because we simply asked for a different site. When I told him that we didn't have a place to stay for the night, his response was, "not my problem". I sent a complaint to KOA corporate. They sent a form letter back basically saying they don't care. Our KOA days are over.
This park was very hard to locate. The highway system has changed and our GPS could not take us directly there. Once there, we found the park to be well maintained. The girl at the front counter was very nice and helpful. - firsttimefulltimer

I'm all for lakefront camping.... this is NOT it. We use KOA a lot for one night stops or quick weekends. We know what to expect. We have stayed in Terre Haute KOA (Journey) quite a bit over the years. We have stayed here 3 times this year and each stay has been worse than the last. All 3 times flooded and muddy. The park is completely unlevel as you can see from photos. We drove the motorhome over a large section of tree today just trying to get to our spot. Last time, in a full hookup spot, all the dumps were overflowed and we couldn't even dump. They refunded us $7.00 for the inconvenience. I said I wasn't coming back then.... I'm saying it again now. Never again! It's a real shame because this used to be one of our favorite spots to stop. I'm not sure what happened here but they have lost a customer for good. - Adarbonne

Good KOA, would have given higher rating but my rv was surrounded by at least 4" standing water after overnight rain. On the positive side, nice young man came down and unhooked my power cord so we could drive out of the site and get out on dry land. I would go back but would NOT accept site 25 or one in that row if rain were predicted. - pparker

Awesome park for hiking! Very clean, nice lodge with restaurant, pool etc. Sites are nice size with plenty of room in between, IF you have a medium size travel trailer or small fifth wheel. In a larger fifth wheel (which we have), the sites other than pull through are on a 90 degree to street, making back in interesting. Since our site backed into woods we were unable to use the last 6' of pad otherwise would have had tree issues. But overall great park. - Im4Blues

Very busy park , we went over Memorial day weekend with our grandson and daughter. Restrooms and showers were kept clean considering how much traffic was thru them. Hiking trails form very rugged to moderate grandson loved them and then cooling off in the pool afterwards. We also hiked at Shades State park nearby , no entry fee with your hang tag from Turkey Run. The only bad thing was look liked 2 hour wait for the dump station , we were lucky that we have a truck stop on the way home with a dump station. - Steph and Jim

My wife and I took 2 of our granddaughters camping for Spring Break and had a wonderful time. We had 2 days in the 50's and then 2 days with 8 INCHES OF SNOW!!! Welcome to Indiana springs! Took multiple hike on each day. The DNR did plow the snow off of the roads but it did kind of end up in front of your vehicle. Had a 4WD so no problem. FYI the pool at the Inn was closed due to work being done on the ceiling of the pool. You might want to check if that's a service you'd like to take advantage of. - SamA

Unfriendliest management of all parks I ever visited. Its like we owed them for letting us stay there over and above the already fees. Activities person acted like he didn't want to be there. - Edwards --

We arrived on a Sunday afternoon, and after checking out campsites, we settled on site 208 in the small (12 site) Locust Grove loop. Our site was level with a gravel pad and woods at the back of the site; it was a quiet site off the main traffic routes. We had electricity, but no water or sewer - pretty common in IN state parks. We had no AT&T or Verizon cell service, but were able to get a good satellite signal.
The bathrooms / showers were clean and were cleaned at least daily. Showers were the double-curtain type, with plenty of hot water. There are multiple comfort stations, with additional pit toilets scattered around the campground. There is one dump station, which gets busy at check-out time - there were lines most days. The water fill site was across the road from the dump station, and was equally as busy.
Overall, the campground was nice with a lot of trees. It can be muddy when it rains - and it did, before we arrived and while we were there. In fact, we changed our site when we arrived because our original site was really wet and muddy. Be aware that a lot of the sites have a slope and the main roads are busy, because this park has a lot of campers, especially on weekends.
For cars, trucks and campers, the entrance fee is $7 per vehicle for IN residents and $9 per vehicle for out-of-staters, 7 days a week including holidays, with in-and-out privileges. For walkers, bicycles, buses and passenger vans, the entrance fee is $2 per person. Campsite fees are $23 Sun-Weds, $30 Thur-Sat and $33 on holiday weekends.
The camp store is very nice and had a great selection of ice cream treats!
Lots of very nice trails to hike. Multiple boat ramps and a fishing pier are available, with plenty of boat trailer parking close. - Indybear

We were formerly hesitant to visit Raccoon Lake, as it formerly had a reputation for the 'party' park, but were were most pleasantly surprised and comfortable during our stay.
There was a group of noisy adolescents across from us on a 'retreat' gathering (about six sites) that were only moderately supervised, but I blame the adults, not the DNR. They quieted down pretty well in the evening and only ran bicycles into my truck on two occasions... :-/
The restrooms and shower houses have been updated (very few of Indiana's older state parks can say the same...), the property and grounds is kept very nicely; DNR staff can be regularly seen driving through the campgrounds, cleaning the restrooms, etc. Our site was huge, on an outer loop with a copse of trees behind and beside us. Many of the sites, however, are not level and are suitable for tent camping only. The campground listed the pad at our site as 'level', but it slopes downward, front to back. Compared to many of the other sites, though, ours was more level than most. Many of the sites are pretty roomy and many are paved, but there are those on interiors of some loops that are pretty close to your neighbor. Overall, though, pretty typical state park set-up.
There is a nice camping store on site (although only open during high season; they were open the weekend only during the last weekend in September), many boat ramps plus a marina with rentals. There are a couple larger stores with gas and fuel right outside the park entrance, plus a bar/restaurant that other campers stated was pretty good fare.
Several nice bank fishing areas, shelter houses with lake views, and the hiking trails are great. Most trails are fairly easy to navigate, and connect well to each other. Walking to the boat ramp is a short distance from the campground, and it's only about a mile (or so) to walk to the beach area, using the trails.
We will visit here again! - fastalker64

We are here for Sat night only. It is a nice campground and the people are friendly. So friendly they partied past 2am right across the street. I am sure they could be heard throughout the park. If that noise was not enough the golf cart races with a least 10 carts continued to at least midnight. When we stayed, it was not a busy weekend. No festivals or shows in the area. We thought we would spend a quiet night and see the covered bridges in the area. The night was anything but quiet. If you are looking for a friendly place to stay up all night then bring your PBR and golf cart. This is the place for you. Roads are rough on RV's. Max speed 20 mph. Come during the week. You'll love the place. The park does supply internet. No phone service, satellite, TV or radio. - Beas

Nice folks running the park, which was somewhat under construction so we were the only trailer in the park except some permanent folks across a creek that separated the areas. Definitely would stay again, although it is quite aways from anyplace along a back country road. - living large

The park was not easy to get to, but it was worth it. Admittedly we were there mid-week, but it was obviously a clean and quiet place. We very seldom pay for a campground because most are crowded and noisy. We needed a place to hang for the night after a bad couple of days. This was just the bill. One small issue was the cut down bush that was hard to see in the dark, but that was a minor problem. - Matt_C

This campground is not friendly towards mountain bikers, which is unfortunate because there is a large mountain bike park a 1/2 mile away. One of the first things that was said to us was "the last time you people were here we had a lot of problems." This was our first time ever going there. There were a lot of mountain bikers staying that weekend and they all commented about how rude the staff was. They want to add a rule that you have to have an RV or tent on your site. One of our campers, after paying for his site got invited to stay in someone's RV that night, so he didn't put his tent up. One of the employees came over at 11:00 pm, when he was getting ready to go to bed, and started arguing with him to put up a tent. Another person was camping out of his van, he had a nice air mattress in the back and pretty much used it like a tent on wheels. They asked him 3x to put up a tent. He couldn't because his van was his tent. They said they are going to make the rule official and kick him out next time. Another downfall is that they don't take reservations. It's difficult to plan a vacation when you aren't even sure you will have a place to stay. Perhaps if you are just a regular person out there to fish it might be ok, but if you have a mountain bike anywhere they can see it, plan on having them drive past your site at least once an hour and scowl at you. The brick shower house lets you adjust the water temp, the red one does not. - Ames Bond

I stayed here three nights in Site 3 on the Oak Loop while passing through in a 27 foot motorhome with a tow car. Agree with other reviewers -- what a find. Lovely county park around lake. Only takes cash. There is a gas station about 2.5 miles south of the park and a Love's Truck stop about a mile north. Campground is on road on the east side of the lake -- day use area is on road that runs along west side of lake. Campsites are on peninsulas built out into the lake so most every site backs up to water. First part of road has very nice tent sites, then there is a red bathhouse and after that comes the electric sites. There are three peninsulas. Locals seem to favor the third -- River Birch. I was on the second peninsula --Oak -- and was the only camper on that peninsula all weekend (there were probably 10 on the River Birch peninsula). The campsites at the end of the peninsulas seem to be the favorite spots. The spots are gravel with grass and most have some shade. There are a couple pull throughs on the first peninsula that can take big rigs but they aren't on the water. Sites vary in size. You pick out your own site. Warning: if you have a big rig or you can't back up because of your tow bar the turnarounds at the end of the peninsulas are VERY tight -- as in mine was a tight turn for my CRV -- first peninsula better than others`. Unless you are going to use a pull through site (they aren't shown on the campground map for some reason) I suggest pulling over to the side of the road after the red bathhouse (the road is wide there) and unhooking your tow car and walking around to look at the sites. There are water spigots to fill up water tanks at the front end of each peninsula. Great walking trails on day use side of park. There is a beach but lake is closed to swimming. Playground is down the road from campground. Train noise but a ways off. Park folk still driving through at 9:15 at night. No alcohol. No 30 amp -- only 50. - SoloRed

Everything in "damonbeals" review is still accurate. Things that did stand out were the clean restrooms and the historic village which were nice. The turnarounds at the end of each loop were very tight, be aware of this if you have maybe something over 27 ft. The gate does close at 10 PM but the office personnel stops taking in new arrivals at 9 PM. We called as we were going to be maybe 10 minutes after 9 PM and they were super accommodating and told us not to worry.
Many of the fellow travel trailers were mostly showing some age but things were very quiet during the day and at night. We were just passing through so were only here an evening and into the lunch hour.
Yes we would stay here again. - Fizbin
