Lots of deer in this park. They come right up by your RV. It is very quiet here. Electric only for hook up. There are dump stations & water available. There are showers & wash rooms. We didn't use them so I can't say if they were clean or not. Some sights might get satellite signal but we did not. We did get some over the air signals, though. We arrived about an hour before check in time & there was nobody in the booth so we just went ahead & set up in our assigned site. We went back later to register but there was still nobody there. We reserved our space ahead of time so it was paid in full. We did ask a woman who was mowing when there would be someone in the booth & she didn't know but since we paid already not to worry. So we never did register. - Connie's Co-Owner

The park was very well maintained except for the water, there was a broken water line so getting water to our trailer was not easy. There was good cell service for AT&T, it has paved roads and the sites are gravel and mostly level with the sites being a good size. We would stay there again. They do charge higher for holiday weekends. We were there for 10 days from the July 2nd to July 12th. They had the best fire rings I have ever seen in a park!
Lots of wild life in the park and campgrounds. - MAT-DAT

This is the nicest state park that we've stayed in in Illinois. The sites are large and most offer privacy from other sites. We do plan to return. - Charlie K

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

We pulled in to site #82 on a Sunday afternoon, and the campground was crowded - lots of groups. The campground emptied out by the 5PM checkout time, but be aware that weekends will be crowded, with a lot of kids.
The best word to describe this campground is "tired". One of two centennial Indiana parks, the staff is great but the facilities need updating. The sites are electric only; there are multiple water fill-up sites throughout the campground. The south comfort station (closest to the entrance) was not really dirty, but with the poor ventilation, the floor was always wet, which meant muddy. The women's shower was wet but clean, but according to the husband, the men's was "disgusting". The dumpsters were full on Thursday when we left, and the lids were not closed so it was somewhat unsightly.
The park itself is very nice. There are great trails, a nature center with a planetarium and (during the summer) a large swimming pool. Be aware that the campground is not in the main part of the park, but there is an easy trail to the inn, nature center and pool (which closes on 8/7/16) or it's an short drive. We had 1-2 bars of AT&T cell service, and were able to get satellite at our site. Our Verizon mobile hotspot did not get a good signal.
We really wanted to love this campground, but we probably won't be back. - Indybear

We camped at Turkey Run State Park with friends, back-in sites 113 and 114. We both have 34-foot trailers and these sites were long enough for our trailers and tow vehicles. Sites were level and with very spacious grass area between sites. We had the good fortune of no one in the sites backing up to ours--if someone had been in those sites, there could be close overlap towards the back 6-feet of both units. Most of the sites in the northern 50-amp Twin Oaks loops were nice, spacious and level--for the most part, full sun (which we didn't mind in the spring). There were several nice pull-through sites. It had rained the day before our visit so some of the sites had quite a bit of standing water. Dump station near site 60 was convenient for the northern loops. Sites in the 30-amp section (Sugar Ridge, Turkey Hollow) were lovely and wooded but tighter to back a long trailer into. Because we were early in the season, sites were first-come, first-served....this created a long line at check-in. But the park attendant at the check-in desk was very helpful and friendly. - Smashcamp

If you are looking for the amenities of a big RV park, Shades State Park is not the place for you. But if your rig boondocks, you can't beat it. My 32' motorhome fit snugly in the beautiful shaded site on the asphalt pad. Each site has a fire ring, an asphalt pad and a sturdy picnic table. Vault toilets were available in the Locust Grove campground area where I stayed, and flush toilets and clean showers were located within easy walking distance. Shades is one of Indiana's hidden treasures with hiking trails, waterfalls, rock bridges, etc. It is dark, dark at night with no ambient lighting other than campfires, tiki torches, and flashlights - great for star-gazing. The website is great and includes dimensions for every campsite in the park, so you can actually pick one that fits your rig. This was one of my best camping experience to date because so much time was spent outdoors. - shastagrrrl

We camped last year for the fourth of July, good thing we reserved about 3 months early! The park was full but still quiet. The bathrooms were absolutely disgusting: waste piled all the way to the top of the toilet seats! I walked to a few different outhouses with the same outcome. Yuck. Besides that, this was a nice, out of the way park to stay in. Watch out for the raccoons, they are ruthless! - honkadoodle

We stayed here on a Sunday following a booked weekend. The restrooms were a little too dirty for me, they were functional though. After they were cleaned on monday they were still dirty and had litter in them. There was a bit of litter in the campground and the fire pit was a mess. Overall it was very quiet and the staff was very friendly. We would stay here again, though I would probably try Turkey Run or Raccon SRA first seeing as they are so close. - Quiet Campers

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

This place is soooo pretty! We were the only ones there on a Tuesday night. All the sites are back in, but they are spacious. All gravel except one for handicapped which is paved and has a paved sidewalk to the bathroom. They had water and 50 amp service, but no sewer. That was fine with us for one night, but hard to stay for any length of time. They do have a dump station though. For 21$ it was perfect for a place to lay over for the night. - GranNan06

Excellent experience. Exceptionally clean restrooms and showers. We were the only campers present. 15 spaces available. Electric hookup, potable water available and dump station. Quiet, and 11 miles from West Lafayette. - grapeidea

Very nice little county park. We were the only occupants in the park. Very clean restrooms and it was patrolled by deputy during the evening. Very quiet and would highly recommend this park for overnight or multiple days. It is outside of the city a ways so stock up on food and fuel before heading to the park. Good base camp for activities in the area. Would definitely stay here again. - bostonblackie
