Older campground with narrow gravel sites, but 36' Class A with 4 slides fit easily. 50 amp power, water and sewer for $20 per night a great deal. Just off I-65 near Premium Outlet stores and several restaurants. Stayed overnight and would stay again. Cash or personal check only. - Travellin' Tina

Older park in need up some major upgrading, our site looked like an afterthought as it was between the tool shop and a cabin. The utilities were good and easy to connect to. - Teacher's Pet

This park is actually in Gnawbone, a few miles from Nashville. The sites are somewhat close together and the road might be a little close for some. Otherwise, the sites were level, wifi excellent and the owners very friendly and helpful. - hudsonguy

Agree with previous comments. Park is still clean and well maintained with very helpful owners. Park was pretty full over Labor Day weekend, but emptied out the day after. Price is a bargain.
Only negative is that some of sewer connections were elevated off the ground thus making dumping a little tricky, i.e. dumping uphill. - GerMarV

We stayed here for a music festival and the campground was very crowded. We came for the music, so of course it is convenient to stay in the campground during the festival. The restrooms near the back of the campground were open on Fri and Sat but smelled horrible. The restrooms near the stage were open and in much better shape. The showers are open from 7-10 am and pm, so if not there by 10 am would have to wait unit after the music starts to get a shower. We loved the music and friends we gather with each year, so will be going again next year. I'm not sure I would stay here otherwise. - Donna Jo

Spooky park. Thought we were on a empty drive in theater lot. Would not stay here again. In fact, we left after the first night. Stayed in the fall and there was no one around. All but one restroom closed. Would not recommend during off season for sure. - Julie B

Old park. At this time of year, no problem getting a site. Roads fair, narrow, hilly and dirt. Park is large. Sites old gravel, unlevel but spacious. Everything looks old and worn. Staff gives appearance of unconcerned. Good electric and water pressure. Mediocre. Alright for an overnight, close to Nashville Indiana. - PappaDee

This is a well kept campground but the sites are very small with shared pedestals for the pull through sites. We stayed at a very busy time so nearly every site was in use including the one next to us. As I mentioned the sites are close; we had about 8" of clearance between ours and the neighbor's slides on the utility side and very little room to park the tow or towed vehicles. Other than the limited space this is a clean, well kept, campground with a helpful staff. The utilities are good and the CATV excellent. - Vermagnuson

The sites in this park are so close together that it makes New York apartment living seem roomy. My 7.5' wide camper was less than 2 feet from my neighbor once we put our slides out.
My power went out 4 times during my stay. It was at first blamed on my plug, so I spent $100 and had their electrician replace it. Power went out 3 more times. Guess it wasn't my plug. - Sprinter3500

Stayed here while visiting relatives in the area. FHU site with cable TV and WiFi. Site was less than level. CG owner worked with me to get the TT as level as possible, even provided concrete blocks to back up my wheel chocks. Bring your long water hose and your electrical extension cords. Some sites are back to back. Heavy rain washed out part of entry road which he repaired immediately. - moderate camper

We did a two night trip to view some fall foliage and we where not disappointed. The leaves where past their prime but with the temps in the 80's and sunny the remaining leaves showed us their beauty. The campground was not busy during the week and the camp store had 30% off every thing except ice and firewood. The park is very hilly and is great for hiking, biking and walking. You will have to pay or have a pass to enter the park for the first time. The only low spot was we where invaded by some kind bugs that looked like lady bugs, they seamed to like the warm exterior of the motorhome and then finding their way inside as the temps cooled, we spent the evenings removing them from the inside as we watched the Cubs/Indians games. - Psi500

We have come to Brown County SP many years. A bonus this year was the new shuttle bus between the campground and Nashville sponsored by the General Store. What a great idea for RVers in motor homes as the town is too far to walk and too hilly to bike from the campground! Camping here in the fall is great - even though it rained this year - we still loved bike riding, campfires, and the holiday lit campsites. With this new shuttle it is even better because a new rainy day option is lunch and browsing in the treasure that is Nashville! - cathy8

As folks have said, the sites have electricity only, so load up water as you come in. Beautiful park and very well maintained. Bring your firewood with you as they prefer you leave limbs on the ground. Great little campstore, plenty of hiking trails, most of the rv spaces are small - lots of tent spaces and almost all of the camping spaces are on the main road. Lots of people here on the weekends - sold out and this was October 1st. The views are magnificent. Horse trails - and you can even use their horses, mountain bike trails, nature center, playgrounds and I hear there is a lake here but we didn't go visit it. Overall, we are very impressed with this park and will definitely come back - even though we have a 44 foot 5th wheel and most of the campsites will not accommodate us. - Don Self

I reviewed this park a few years ago but it is worth a re-review. They built a new shower house which is a vast improvement. The trees have grown up so there is some shade available. The swimming beach has been removed so no swimming is available. Still it is a county park carved out of an old army base. It is a decent place to camp if you are going to one of the many events at the park. Several seasonal campers plus some people temporarily living in tents. - bgb1066

This is a pretty typical county park campground. Water and electric sites plus a tent area. The shower house is grungy. The sites are gravel pads with a grassy area between them. The park has a lot of events and things to do so it is not a bad place to spend a weekend. The campground does have power problems when crowded and the weather is hot. - bgb1066

Overnight stay on way south. Road to campground entrance very narrow - use caution. Back section seemed tight for maneuvering a 45' motorhome with tow and I was able to get a site near the entrance. Worked out in that I could get satellite. However, did have to unhook. Staff very accommodating. Quiet. - DavidO

Too pricey for not having full hookups $35.67 and that is with Good Sam discount. WiFi didn't work, too far to walk to restrooms as we were in the back of the park. Nice shaded site. We have a 40' Class A, towing. Roads dusty, no concrete pads at all. Pass this one by if you can. All gravel and the grass we saw isn't worth mentioning. - Ncmax

We had to ruff it Satelite wouldn't wok in trees, I'm excited to see what life without television is like! Our site didn't have sewer, don't normally hook up unless I intend to dump. Unlike previous review long timers don't bother me if their sites are clean and rv's well kept. Level, clean, quiet, long pullthru so I didn't have to unhook. - User2314

WiFi nonexistent. For the high price for no sewer hookup makes this a place needing stronger Mgt.
DirecTV not available unless you move to the field-like campground.
Nice kids park, no effort to remedy WiFi issue. Asked them to follow up and not confident this will happen. 50 amp good, cell phone reception good, level gravel sites. Location good with Columbus within 10 minutes. - budwang

Very nice and clean park. Has a number of activities, such as go-cart track, skeet range, rifle range, miniature golf, batting cages, driving range etc. Would definitely do a return visit. - paulbe

Spent Mother's Day weekend here, as the park is close to "Mom", so she and Dad could come visit ;-) . Having grown up in this area, we remember Ceraland as a sort of 'crown jewel' of recreation areas, as it was formerly funded by, and for use by, Cummins employees and their families. It is now open to the public, and they sell annual memberships to use the pool, playgrounds, go-kart track, shelter houses, fitness center, etc.
The campground is about at the level of state park standards in Indiana these days; in the fact that some sites need some gravel (and a couple could use some fill dirt, and bath houses are older but kept pretty clean. All in all, it's a pretty fair value for a full hookup site. There are a few seasonals, but they're pretty nice and well-kept. Most of the sites will require a bit of leveling, but not too bad.
There is a lake, and there are lake-front sites available, but not if you have dogs. The "premium" lake-front sites are in a designated 'no pets' area. Also, the signs and literature state there's no alcohol allowed in the park, which probably cuts down on the loud, intoxicated parties, and that's OK. We just kept ours inside the RV ;-). This weekend was pretty quiet, and the park was less than half full.
There is a minimal camp store on the property, and they sell essentials, including firewood, but the city of Columbus is 10 minutes away for more options. - fastalker64

Focusing on just the campground, and not the beautiful Monroe Lake property, this property just gets 'average', although it borders on poor. A prior review from years ago referenced bad roads and potholes inside the campground. Well, they're still there; the roads are terrible. This campground is old and tired, but it gets packed every weekend, because of the fact that it's adjacent to the lake. You'd think Indiana would spend some of the increased camping fees to fix the aging campgrounds.
Many sites have some sort of lake access or lake view, and others have only a short walk to a nice view or access. The 2-cars per site rule isn't enforced, and some people are camping in horse trailers and box trucks. Many of sites are not level, so trust the online booking when it indicates slope. Our site was listed as 'gentle' slope, but it sloped front to back AND left to right. It's also referred to as a 'gravel' site, but this site (nor any others) hasn't seen fresh gravel in years. Some RV sites looked like tent-only to me. Our AC was having a hard time keeping up after the campground filled up, due to an overloaded electric system. I'm guessing that the electrical system gets overloaded, as many of the RV sites are used by 20-amp tent campers with multiple crock pots, lights, etc. For $30 for electric-only sites, this campground isn't a great value, but daggone-it, we'll go back because we love the lake.
It is sort of fun to people-watch here, as it's sort of like going to the county fair. Things quieted down pretty nice after about 10pm, though, even on Saturday night, so even though it's a zoo during the day, you can still get some rest.
There is a marina on the property for boat rentals and various basics and sundries, and a little larger store at the park entrance that sells fishing gear and beer/wine/groceries. - fastalker64

Nice campground, but lots of traffic with all of the people pulling boats and campers. The restrooms are older, but were kept clean. - bgb1066

Nice state park. Staff seems decent. Some sites wooded and some out in the open. You have your pick. No water at sites, but a few spigots here and there. Probably ought to be a few more so they aren't quite so far apart. Most roads were good; however, I was a little surprised with the main road running through the campground. There were a few craters that need to be addressed pretty bad. Bathrooms and showers were clean, but dated. Probably pretty active during the main season, but VERY quiet for our stay. We will stay here again. - cwooz
