This is a nice campground, loved staying here hot water in showers, very nice and helpful owners they are constantly updating and beautifying the campground. There is kids playground and river rats business here to rent tubes and kayaks to go on the river, they have walking trails, fishing. It's peaceful here. Would come back. - Bubbles1987

Quakertown SRA is a wonderful campground. Lots of level and grassy sites. Many shaded sites. Close to Quakertown Marina, where you can rent pontoon boats on Brookville Lake. They have a beach, but there were many geese at the beach. This campground is in the middle of no where. There is a store right outside of the park to purchase essentials and they have hot pizza, if you need a break from cooking. The campground is paved and has blacktop pads, with a big picnic table and fire ring. As in most of Indiana state parks no water hookups. If you choose to camp here I would camp close to the one and only comfort station, as the throne pit toilets don't do much for me. This is always a quiet campground. If you have little one's take them to the marina and get some dog food to feed the fish. - theschuettes

Whitewater is a very nice state park. The campsites are well maintained; however, the facilities could use a little work. They are usually clean, but need updated, repainted, etc. The lots are of good size with tall, mature shade trees. Most lots are gravel and fairly level. The playgrounds could use updating - some of the play equipment is unsafe for young children. Nice beach, boat dock and ramp, and trails. - Indiana Camping Family 45

Beautiful park and very well maintained campground. Sites were large with a picnic table and fire ring. Most sites had some shade. We stayed in a pull-through site (146). Plenty of room for both truck and trailer. - DonCon

Nice campground and OK sites, but wow, the hillbillies are out in this park. I have never seen so many drunk people setting off fireworks in my life. The DNR workers would drive right by the people with their radio so loud at midnight and just wave at them??? It's pretty bad when the police are called on both nights that we were here and people left in an ambulance. I even yelled at one of workers (DNR), that were driving so fast through the CG it put the kids in danger. Not sure if it was drunk fest weekend or what, but beware if you visit here. We will not return. If this CG was better managed it would be a nice park. - 1 camper

What a nice state park. We stayed in the C loop which is full hookup. Sites are fairly deep and wide. Paved pad was at an angle to the road so it was very easy to back into. The electric only sites were mostly empty but also have paved parking pads.
Showers and restrooms were clean and abundant. Utilities at the site worked well (the water pressure was a bit low at 25psi).
We had very good AT&T 4G LTE coverage and OTA TV from Dayton and Cincinnati was good.
We stayed here while visiting our son at Miami University which is just a bit over 20 minutes from here. - 4forsmores

Our second time to visit Mounds SRA at Brookville Reservoir. We stayed in the FHU section again, and it was fairly full. The rest of the park (electric only) was sparsely populated in mid-September.
Electricity was out for about 3 hours on Sunday morning, they got it fixed. Water was out for a while, too, 'cause someone backed over a water spigot and it needed dug out to repair. Service was fairly prompt in correcting these issues. Even still, water pressure is just so-so.
Lots of OTA television channels from both Cincinnati and Dayton, fair 4GLTE signal on ATT.
Sites are large and are asphalt paved for the parking area. There's a large open field in the interior of the FHU site section C, that's used by campers throwing footballs, playing soccer, etc. Overall, it's a pretty quiet campground (or, it was this weekend), and most of the campers/rvs there are pretty nice. Nobody was camping out of the back of a box truck.
The shower houses were awful the first time we went there a couple years ago, but the state did some upgrades/updating to them, according to the DNR website. We didn't use them this time, so I can't say if they did or didn't work on them.
The lake is nice (I caught a nice catfish ;-), but requires driving from the campground (unless you're a VERY ambitious hiker). The camp store is large and well stocked, interior roads in the park are wide and easily navigable. There are marinas for boat rentals in the area. Brookville is sort of a quaint old town, just a few miles away. Metamora was formerly a very touristy little village about 20 minutes away, but it has deteriorated over the last decade.
Mounds is one of the few state parks in Indiana that has full hookup sites and paved pads. For that reason, we do like it, but $40 is too much, really, so that rates it only a 'satisfactory' for us, in terms of value. - fastalker64

We camped in the full service area. We fished and really enjoyed our stay.
The web site states level sites but you need several blocks to make the trailer level. - Tlead4

Went with grand children to swim and have fun, mainly swim. the lake was scummy around edge of beach area and the beach was nothing but duck crap. You could not walk on beach or two or more feet in water with out duck crap. Could not swim. Told them but nothing was done. Then there was duck crap in camping area. The one set of rest rooms were unsafe. Floors buckled up and fell in along with the toilet. the other set was filthy, toilets dirty and full of body waste, showers dirty and moldy. Very unsatisfied.
In the park was a wonderful playground. The camping site was flat enough that we didn't have to level it and was by playground. The attendants were old and very nice. - barbnted

We stayed here for 3 nights. We were passing through and needed a place to stay for a few days. It was a cheap place with Passport America. The park staff is nice, the seasonal residents are very friendly. The highway noise was loud day and night! The place was very active on the weekend but quiet times were observed. WiFi was very good. TV antenna reception was good. The transient sites were out in an open field with a little lake. No picnic table or fire ring. We would stay here again if passing through the area because it was cheap and the park was easy to navigate. - RunAroundSue

This campground is for homesteaders. Front of campground is a lot to be desired. Filled with dilapidated travel trailers, fifth wheels, motorhomes which have been built on to. Once you drive through the wooded area you come to an open field that has no shade, and homesteaders have taken over the spaces by the woods and pond. Transients have the middle strip to set up and hope the cramped site is large enough for your slide outs. Homesteaders have full run of this park, rules only apply to transient guests. No picnic table, no fire ring (took one from an empty site). The bathhouse is absolutely filthy, with rotted floors. Have to have water filters due to horrible water. DO NOT use the washers, ruined an entire load of white clothes to their rusty water. Only 30 amp service, no picnic tables or fire rings. Have some activities in weekends but if you're not one of the homesteaders you're really not welcomed. This campground is almost like it's own little compound, you're welcome to come for a night or two, but that's it. A woman sits on her deck at the front of the campground and waves to everyone but refuses to acknowledge you when she's riding through the campground on her golf cart. They do accept Passport America and Good Sam. The price would have been o.k. until I lost $75 worth of white clothes due to their rusty water! I wouldn't recommend this campground to anyone. - Dream living

This campground was so bad, we did not want to stay. The electrical looked so bad we were afraid to plug into it. The grass was real high and we could see only one other camper and they looked like they lived there. Buildings were very old. This was under ACN and Passport America yet it is not worth any cost unless you really like very primative camping at a premium cost. - oldtiogatraveler

Cornerstone is a routine favorite of ours. There are several sizes of lots, some shady, and some sun. Sites near the entrance are 50/30 amp full hookup and tend to have less shade. Sites behind the entrance are 30 amp only with water/electric only. Sites are gravel and most are level. The CG tends to fill up quickly on weekends and holidays, so you want to book in advance. Campground owners are warm and welcoming. They work hard to make camper's stays the best possible.
They do accept Passport America, but this can be hit and miss on pricing. We have gotten this price during the week as I recall. Showers and bathrooms are clean. They do deliver very good pizza to your site which is great with a crew of kids when setting up. The playground "gizmo" is the biggest one I have ever seen. Our kids get lost in it frequently. The pool is very nice when it is open.
The only real drawback is the road noise from I-70. The CG is located across the pond, but the pavement on the interstate there is concrete, and the trucks can be rather noisy.
The CG owners have addressed the flooding issues by tiling many of the camp sites this spring. I haven't been there in a good downpour, but it should help that issue tremendously.
Of all the CG's in East Central Indiana, this is our go-to campground. - scarter4work

We can concur with some of the comments from before. This campground seems to not have any real set rates. They say they are Passport America, but we have paid $22, $28 and this time $45 for the a 50amp, full hook up site on stops during the past year. The sites are well worth the earlier rates, but way over priced for narrow, sloping gravel pads with all hookups at the rear of the pad. Will opt for one of the other options within 10 miles on future semi annual trips. We were checked in by the owner each time who is very nice and helpful and each time assure the Passport rate was applied. There are 13 or 14, 50 amp full hookup sites, all the other are 30 amp with water only, under heavy tree cover. - Teacher's Pet

Very nice, well run park. There are not many full hookup sites, so if you need one make a reservation. Many sites are under heavy tree cover with only 4 or 5 being satellite friendly. This campground is a Christian Retreat Center in it's own description and has very nice facilities. There are meeting facilities and a large bunk house on the grounds. - Teacher's Pet

We were on our way home from a lengthy vacation and needed one night stay to get us home. Called as we were getting gas and they happily had room for 2 units. As it turned out, we were just a couple miles away, so no reservations and we were there in minutes. Checking in was quick and efficient as we are KOA members. Owners are super nice. It was dark and the escort to the site is always appreciated. We had a very nice site by the lake (didn't know that until daylight). We did not hear any road noise from the interstate even though the campground was very close to it. That was a convenience to us as we were just passing through. We would stay here again when traveling. - msvacation

This park is in a very picturesque rural location, although a little too close to interstate road noise. The interior sites are spacious and very nice with good utitlity service. - Altoflyfisher

Even with no satellite reception, this placed rocked. The owner was always around if you had a question and was a great guy. Nice pool, excellent wifi and cable. Pool nice. Quiet park. Would stay again. - kimble

We were in a pull thru site but would have preferred back in site in a grassy area with fewer trees. One lane road in and out of park could be a problem if meeting an oncoming vehicle. Some permanent sites but they are well maintained. Park is well maintained, lots of things to do and restrooms are very very clean. Passport rate is cash only. - Mustcamp

Since we were using Passport America we had to use a back in and had to unhook our tow. The site was a little unlevel and would have been a mess if it had rained, there would have been a lot of mud. The owners were very nice and helpful, plenty of trees and several wood carvings that are beautiful. It wasn't too far off the road so it was fine for overnight. The wifi worked in their barn (rec room) and was fine. - SGF

We enjoyed camping here so much we extended our stay. The campsites are relatively spacious and the campground has lots of trees. We were here in early June, and the fields and trees surrounding the campground were filled with fireflies at night; it was lovely. The campground owners are very friendly and accommodating. In addition to providing fire rings and picnic tables with care to level the table, they also recommended events and museums in Richmond which were delightful. We travel with two dogs, and the campground is very pet friendly and has a small fenced dog run for dogs to be off-leash. The pool looks inviting and clean, and although it was too cold for us Floridians to swim, others were enjoying the pool. The campground is conveniently located just off I-70, but there is no highway noise in the campground. - User3725

We have stayed there 3 times and the owners are pleasant people. Atmosphere is rural and wooded. Many children there and things to do for them, especially the heated pool. - johnmack

The bathrooms and showers were clean, but stalls were short so that when you stood you could see the rest of the bathroom and the showers were a tad small. Still, not bad. The pool was extremely clean and had many activities (Foosball, ping pong, etc.) for people to play at. Mostly seasonal campers, but great even for just overnight! Overall, a really great experience - oh, and the service here was great! Every time I have met a staff member here, I have been impressed with their quality of service. All in all, a great time. - crosscountrycollegian

Have stayed here several times visiting friends in area. Will stay here again any time in area. Very nice people, small but like the layout. Not a fancy place but was always here either at just the end of winter or early to mid fall so either trees are not yet filled out or void of leaves. During height of summer, with pool weather, fully leafed out trees would be very nice. Only thing some won't like is that park is right next to a fairly heavy traveled road so noisy. - alh
