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. - User3283

Things are pretty much the same as they were when we were here four years ago and that's not a bad thing. The setting is beautiful and most of the campsites available to those of us who travel are nice while not the best ones. The best spots with wonderful views of the lakes are taken by long timers. Many of these folks have made lots of upgrades to their sites, turning them into showplaces. While our site wasn't one of the really great spots overlooking a lake, it was one of our favorite spots so far this year. This being Independence Day weekend there were lots of people around. However, I think I counted two empty spots (although they may well have been due to no-shows). The campground was in great shape and there were some nice events including a "zoo" with interesting animals and a barbecue with the meat provided by the campground. Our Verizon signal was good and I was able to get 2 of my 3 Dish Network satellites through the trees. We had one low voltage episode in which our Surgeguard cut power to the camper for a few minutes. This is a pretty campground and we'll likely return when future travels bring us to western Indiana. - nazpaz

I was working in the area and stayed a month. Rates were very good and staff was very friendly. The place was well maintained. They had just gotten WIFI and it worked great. Would recommend to anyone staying in the area. - Brian___---

Washrooms are filthy and badly in need of maintenance, garbage is overflowing in dumpster, no wifi, no office on site (down the street one block). My wife went to use the laundry room to find only the name on the door should have read "Storage Room".
Pricing is the same as higher end campgrounds. We were not treated as paying customers.
The owner decided to start grading the roads around our trailer after 5:00PM while we were having our dinner-creating a lot of dust and noise. This went on for over an hour, until I finally decided to ask them how much longer they would be?
The operator of the small loader was extremely aggressive, giving both my wife and I the 'finger', cursing and threatening to put a pile of rocks in front of our truck so we could not move. We decided to leave shortly thereafter fearing even though it was dark and had to drive nearly all night to our next destination. To say the least, it was a horrible experience.
FORGET THIS CAMPGROUND..It's the worst campground we have ever stayed at, out of several hundred! I would not recommend to anybody. - John Hester

50Amp was available at two sites when we visited and the owner is installing additional 50A pedestals. (The entire campground is, however, for sale) This is a nice clean, secure, full hookup place to spend a few days. No big amenities, but the price is right. - Little Black Dog

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 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

This is our third time we have stayed here, and we enjoy it every time. It's quiet, shaded and clean. We can bring in our own firewood and ride in our golf cart on the trails. We will definitely go back. - Shelley Coss

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

Our site had a concrete pad and patio. A swing, table, and chairs were also on the patio. The Campground gets a lot of interstate stopovers so you can meet a lot of friendly travelers. - Hobbes

Wow, what an amazing campground! We stayed for July 4th Weekend and our site was fantastic! We had reserved a deluxe full hookup site complete with a concrete pad, patio, fancy fire pit (not generic ring), wooden swing, and a very nice patio set of chairs and table. Little touches like a flower box made from patio blocks really drove home for me the attention to landscaping details. The office had everything you could ask for and the staff were all super helpful. Plus if you bring the map of the campground back into the office, they'll serve you cookies, which for my two little ones what a big plus. They also have an area inside the office for DVD rentals with a decent selection. It was the first time I'd seen a campground offer such a great option. The pool was in good condition and wasn't saturated with debris like some other campground pools. There was cable hookup with around 26-27 channels which is something I've noticed not a lot of campgrounds offer For campers like me who have little kids, there were some decent options for entertainment. They had petting zoo with 2 donkeys that you could feed, a wagon/train ride through the campground at 6:30, and pedal kart racing. - StealthPenguin

This park had mostly trailers, pop-up campers and tents. Our site was not long enough to park our little tow car in front of our class A RV so we had to park it sideways. If you park your car or truck on the grass the ranger will come and talk to you or leave a note. The Twin Oaks loop has 86 sites with 50 amp, 2 restrooms and only 4 water faucets. When you arrive fill up your water tank just after the gatehouse straight ahead on the right. The campground was very crowded with family reunions and lots of kids. Lots of activity with people playing frisbee, washers, cornhole & riding bikes. If you want a peaceful place to camp this is not the place. Trail #3 in the state park is very rugged but has amazing views of giant rocks & includes climbing rocks in a creek. The trails on the weekends are crowded. The Turkey Run Inn has a good buffet. - Lini

Very popular park, and as a result quite crowded and facilities stressed. (We were there on a weekend.) Bathrooms & showers well-used; out of four toilets in our loop, only one was working. Benches & modern fixtures in shower, randomly different shower heads; generally clean. Nightly rate of $36 includes a one-time $9 park entry fee. Sites 7-87 in open area, trees around outside edge, except site 33-36 in a heavily forested loop. Sites 157-183 also in a forested loop; 184-211 and 266-270 have road noise - OlderGoat

I stayed here two nights in Site 42 while passing through in a 27 foot motorhome with tow car. One of Indiana's premiere state parks famous for its forests and hiking trails. The campground is huge -- over 200 sites. Warning: many of the sites slant down and to the side especially those on the outside of the loops -- sites on the inside of the loop tend to be more level but are mostly in the sun. I had to switch sites to get level. There are two main loops -- one straight ahead (Twin Oaks sites 7-124) which is grassy with trees and one to your left (Turkey Hollow sites 184-218 and Sugar Ridge sites 261-270) after going through the fee station. Twin Oaks is large, grassy and level. To the left the sites at first are in deep woods -- then there is a SERIOUS dip -- then the road comes up and enters Sugar Ridge that has level sites mostly in the open. The few pull through sites looked level. There is a potable water fill up site but you need to go clockwise around Twin Oaks loop to properly access it. The park has a separate entrance about a half mile down the road. They do not charge an additional fee to enter the park if you are camping at the campground. The main park has an Inn that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, a pool, a playground, a very nice nature center and of course the hiking trails. There is a trail that connects the Inn with the Campground -- entrance is at the end of the Twin Oak loop next to the dump station. The trails -- on the whole -- are strenuous but amazingly beautiful. The campground was practically empty during the week but fills on weekends. There is a camp store and two dump sites. Warning: check out time is 5 on Sundays. - SoloRed

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

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
