Called ahead and asked for a place by the pool and under some tree coverage and verified there was wifi access.I was assured we would receive all three amenities. We asked the person who met us if we indeed were parked under shade trees and were again told we were. We get to our spot which was right by the pool but there were no shade trees. I mean we could SEE them from where we were parked but none near us.The pool was completely unsuitable for all but the frogs that called it home with 10 inches of water.Major maintenance is required to get this thing usable. Falling apart and concrete missing, metal thrown in like it's being used for garbage.
We felt deceived but had already paid. After a couple weeks of some very strange traffic I called into the Sheriff's department when the Deputy on duty advised me he would probably not stay there with his family. We witnessed underage drinking as well as numerous other sketchy activities. I never felt personally threatened, but would advise caution for travelers with kids.
We tried the little restaurant and was not surprised to find the food was unremarkable-at best-but the service was awful.The woman seemed annoyed that we actually ordered off the menu rather than using the buffet.
The owner while seemingly nice lied to us regarding the 3 major things we requested over the phone. She informed me we had access to wifi but when we got there she would not relinquish the pw to us claiming she did not know it and the server at the restaurant told us nobody ever gets it.
I had a difficult time contacting the owner when calling (which really should have been my first clue)-I kept getting the "restaurant" and the owner was the only person who would discuss sites but was never around.
I would not go back as things are. This was clearly a very nice place at one point. If someone were to take some care and renovate the park and pool, maybe add a little security..I would consider giving it another shot.Until then-Beware. - Hart_Serenity

Need better direction signs inside the park. Had to ask 2 different people directions to office. Last one led me to location in his golf cart. Interior roads are gravel. Very friendly staff. Passing through and will stay here again if in the area. They have a restaurant on the premises. - RockenL

This is a very nice, peaceful park that is the second largest in the Indiana state park system. It is well designed: the sites are all close to a shower/bathroom facility. Those facilities were clean and had good hot water. They seem to be strict about only one tow vehicle per site, but overflow lots available for extra vehicles. The area is beautiful in the fall, with many sites in the woods.
Site grades inside loop are flat. Grades on perimeter sites vary widely, from almost flat to quite steep. Flat ones often have picnic table and fire pit a little downhill and with a beautiful view. It's probably best to see one of these sites that you want to reserve before doing so, as the descriptions on the reservation site of the pad steepness are not too accurate. - GregAndKatie

Stayed for 4 nights while visiting family in the area. Always stay at this park when visiting in this location.
Stayed in "C" loop. The restrooms were clean, but they are starting to show their age. Don't like the gang shower, but there is a single available.
This is a pretty park which is well maintained. New picnic tables at our site. Fire wood is available from the campground host. We didn't buy wood therefore I don't know the cost. Hiking trails are close to the campground. There is a lake for kayaks or canoes. Camp store is close to the lake. Saw lots of horse trailers, and they can use trails designed for the horses.
I'm not used to paying an entrance fee to the park, and it's in addition to the camping fee. $9.00 entrance fee for out of state people.
Versailles is close if groceries or other supplies are needed. - Dennis D

Only visited A loop, but would not recommend that section for motorhome or trailers. Very tight narrow road with trees. Sites looked very small and difficult to back into. - Cicero Cachers

Little Farm on The River will spruce things up before a holiday, such as Memorial Day, but afterward seem to neglect the roads and lawns, especially down in the lower or hidden parts of the campground. The roads quickly become pothole ridden and muddy, especially down by the river-the lower part of the campground, whereas the top part of the campground-by the camp office is tended to as it is the most visible part of the campground. Roads and sites are dirt mixed with some gravel. Little River on The Farm requires a fee for the mini-golf, wagon rides and weekend crafts for the kids. The mini-golf is in need of repair. Contract workers(Paid by Amazon sites) are often placed in the most isolated out-of-sight and less convenient parts of the campground. For the transient guests this is not a bad place as they will be placed in the more visible and choice sites, usually on the hill by the camp office. Most of the sites FHU and pull-through, except the ones they put the contract workers(Amazon). Most sites have some trees that shade except for sites in the lower part of the campground. Garbage is picked up once or twice a day. Laundry on premise at 1.75/load. Large pool, small playground and small pond at the top part of the campground. Wifi, but I couldn't get it to work. Verizon and T-Mobile are strong and can be used to connect to the internet. Golf carts galore on the weekends. Alcohol is heavily used here, even while people operate golf-carts on a public/non-private road. People also smoke in the shower houses as there are no signs prohibiting smoking in the bathrooms/shower houses. - mynyel

This park has two sections; we stayed in the lower section along the Ohio River. This used to be our very favorite RV park, but this most recent stay was a disappointment. The road was a disaster, large potholes full of muddy water. The grass needed to be mowed, and we never did get their wi-fi to work. The final insult was: Since our last stay, the price per night went up over $10 per night. With some road repairs and general sprucing up, the park would be very nice, but I'm still not sure it would be worth $45 per night. - SW Ohio Travelers

Nice park, brand new! Clean, level concrete pads with landscape stone for your patio. Gated entry, check-in at lodge is well marked. Shuttle will take you to casino or town, but both are within walking distance. This is a lovely RV park, but here are the picky negatives- Pads are a tad short and narrow. If you have a long 5th Wheel, use the back-in sites along the perimeter so your tail can hang out in the grass. (Good luck finding enough room to park your truck or toad.) Cable TV probably runs on a Qam signal, which our TVs were not compatible with. Some road noise is heard from both sides of the park. No open fire allowed including fire pits and charcoal grills (gas grills are permitted). These are relatively minor complaints. Overall this is a great place to camp. We will gladly return for another visit! - Flying Mantis

Excellent park. Brand new park with wide streets, concrete pads, nice laundry, lots of grass (including a dog park). Quick check-in at the hotel. Shuttle will take you to casino across the parking lot. Nice clean casino with some restaurants. It is a little isolated but very nice. Very quiet; gated. Grassy area is fantastic for dogs!! What a pleasant surprise!!! We enjoyed our stay. - Freedom Bus

Very nice park. We pulled right up to the check in area. Excellent dog park. Friendly staff. Price for a casino park a bit high, but no other complaints. - Jim and Lynda

I had a lovely site, backed-up to the little lake. There are ducks and fish. Paddleboats and canoes are available. There is a little hiking trail around the lake. Staff were pleasant and helpful. The lever at the water connection to turn the water on broke, and it was fixed within 2 hours. There is an old houseboat and motorhome parked nearby. Maintenance is done daily, trash, landscaping, etc. The park is close to a large grocery store, and about 35-45 minutes from Cincinnati. Sites seem level. Some traffic noise from the nearby freeway. I am coming back next year. - Pazahora

WiFi was strong and reliable. The pedal boats on the pond were free and fun. Bathrooms very basic, but also very clean without any limits on hot water. Did not give our site a 5 because in July a little shade would have been better. - WNC Traveler

As soon as we entered the park we were presented with a derelict RV in the boat ramp area that looked like it had been dragged out of the pond. Grounds were OK, but we found ourselves in a site with a septic tank collector in it, so the smell was terrible. We asked for another site and were allowed to move. When we were greeted, we felt very comfortable. However, the next day someone looked after the office that looked like she did not enjoy what she was doing. Very overpriced, especially with the highway noise, which was deafening. I would not stay again, ever. WI-FI was useless. Best amenity was the ice sold at $1.50 in the heat wave. NO SHADE in our site. Not worth the money. - michaelsutton

Big rig friendly! All sites are long and level with concrete patio. Front section is open and sunny with limited landscaping between sites. Back section is along the woods and is a little more private and quiet. Pool and bounce pad are available to entertain the kids. Paved trail through the woods will entertain your dog. There's a big clubhouse which would be great for rallies. Nothing to walk to in the immediate area, but Belterra Casino has free shuttle service that runs until 1:30am. Did have a 30 amp breaker issue, but maintenance was quick to respond. This would be an excellent CG choice to tour the area if you have another vehicle at your disposal. - Flying Mantis

This is one of the nicest parks. Concrete level pads with convenient and well working utilities. Roads are extra wide making it easy to maneuver our 45 foot Super C. Large area for unhooking and re-hooking up tow vehicle. Park was full on weekend yet quiet during the week. We stayed for a week. - hug448844

Excellent facility in southwest Indiana. We had a minor problem with the electric box while here. Maintenance came over and fixed it within 5-10 minutes. The campground is clean and well maintained. The only reason that I didn't rate it higher is that there isn't a lot of shade on the sites. The sites themselves are extremely level. Hookups are easy to access. This is probably the nicest commercial campground we've stayed at. Kudos to their staff. Great folks. - OhioBill

The roads we used had a lot of potholes. The fire ring was a bunch of landscaping rocks in a circle. It seemed that there were a lot of "workcampers" upon seeing all the things around their sites. It's a big park. Our graveled site was fairly level. The way the "ranger" took us to our site, i had to place the water and power cord under my rig. - 1dinky

We stayed on the Thousand Trails side. We had made our reservations about 3 weeks in advance, reserving a full hook-up, 50 amp service pull-thru. When we checked in, we were given a map, and told find a site that we liked. The employee told us that here are the 3 phases, and she circled them on the map. Phase 2 and 4 had pull-thrus, but she didn't know what sites were available, what sites had full hook-ups, what sites had 50 amp, and what sites were just water and electric. She did know that phase three was just water and electric. We drive around, ran into some low hanging branches in phase 3, where another employee directed us to phase 5, which also was a mix of full hook-ups, some with 30 amp, some with 50 amp, and some with just water and electric. After a third employee stopped us and helped us, we were able to find a site. We ended up in phase 2, where our site was mostly grass, and not level. We were able to level the coach by placing pads under the rear wheels. The water and sewer were in the driver side and the electric was on the passenger side, so we had to run the electric under the coach. Then it rained for a couple of days and the fire pit and sewer connection were under water. Our thoughts are, if you are going to take reservations and charge $52 per night, you should at least be able to tell people what site that they reserved, instead of telling them you need to go find your site. - Bbtj

We have stayed in many RV parks, but this is, by far, in the top 5 worst. Yes, it's huge, but only 2 sections really count for Thousand Trails and "phase 2" which is where you're sent, is VERY unlevel gravel sites; the hookups are very confusing, (not sure which hook up goes to which site and many have to be shared part sewer part not (and the maps numbers don't jive with the posts so you don't know) and today they turned our water off for part of the day, with no notice, because they were doing some work elsewhere. The pool was not swimmable (unless you like to swim in 60 degree water) and much of the rest of the park is like broken down single wide mobile homes. There is another couple areas - one huge area for KOA (only one RV in there) and "phase 4" which looked ok, but we're full of what looked like permanent sites. Couldn't believe this is a Thousand Trails park. You had to check in at the store and they give you a paper scan card for the gate...that is car level. You best hope you don't come in your class "a" by yourself because you won't reach. - JoWood

Stayed at Big Bone Lick as a base camp to attend the Quaker State 400 in nearby Sparta, KY. The girls stayed back at the park and enjoyed the clean swimming pool. Site 11 was level but did require 75 foot of water hose to reach the spigot. Bathrooms were clean and showers as well. This park is at least 10 miles from any gas, restaurants or shopping so bring what you need. - kbot

Decent state camping park. Sites are not very level. You will need at least two or possibly three water hoses here. Showers dated but acceptable. Small store sells ice and other items. Mini golf is also available as well as a swimming pool. Very nice setting. - sjwake

Smaller park with well spaced out sites. However, many sites are very unravel despite being asphalt....plus, not big rig friendly. Tight fit for our 32' fifth wheel. Nice pool, though small, and it was not being refilled with water...level clear went down. There is a nice putt putt course, sadly there was a tree that had fallen down on the course some time ago and never cleaned up. Camp hosts were active putting reservation forms on site poles. Dump station was adequate. Water source was shared between two sites...thankfully, we had 50' of hose. Convenient to half way point to family in Louisville with camper. So, we will probably stay here again...it's ok and works for us. Met nice people from Louisiana and North Dakota. - Jitime40

Getting to this park requires good advanced mapping and intuition; there could be more directional signage. This park is not suitable for long 5th wheels and motor homes. The park map does not show the steep grades and very tight curves with large trees close to the narrow one-way road. Very few sites are level. Bring plenty of blocks. It was very difficult to back into my site due to the trees and the location of the electric post. Plan to drive your rig to the water station to tank up before backing in and setting up. Heavily wooded. Only electric hook-up. Camping is a long way from the rest of the park which has no place for swimming. The bath house is new, very clean and free. - Osita5

The campground is in a nice park facility with a great play area for the kids located down by the lake. It is not real close to the campground though.
We also had to purchase an annual county park pass to be able to get in ($10.00).
The reason for the average rating is very few of the sites are level. Many of them are slanting downhill so it is hard to get level.
They could use a little better signage directing those who do not live here to the campground and check in. We drove past it the first time and had to call to find out where to go.
Also, even though they have a maximum camper limit of 6 people and two tents (or one camper unit and one tent) per site there were several that had many more than that, one having at least 18 people in it and one with 4 tents.
Their dump station is also located on a hill making it hard to get completely empty.
It is a very busy park on the weekends with lots of tent campers - 3 to 6 tents per site.
I would recommend this campground in certain areas only and during the week if possible. - prstlkid

This campground is very close to my home, so we camp here pretty regularly. The upper sites are rather hilly, and most of the lower sites are mostly level. There are a few towards the bottom that have a bad slope, though. There is a playground located in the bottom section, as well. The park offers a lot of attractions (a snack bar, water park for little kids, paved bike trails, disc golf, fishing, hiking trails) and the campground features decent sized sites with plenty of shade. The bathrooms and showers have always been clean when we have camped, and the campground is monitored regularly by park rangers who are friendly and not overbearing. We have a pop-up so without a toilet, so we do not have the problem with the dump station that I keep reading about. Overall, if you are looking for a quiet campground with a lot of activities within the park, I would definitely recommend this park. - McLovin Camper

A little difficult to locate, but getting in park and site was no problem. Blacktop streets with concrete pads. Full Hookup, no cable, no local stations. Was not able to get WiFi to work. Campground very large and clean. Driving from interstate 6 miles, but was not a problem. We reserve over the phone, reservation made, no check-in required. We camped here in a 42 ft Motor Home. Site was large enough and patio tables were like new! - Guidry's

This is a beautiful park; long, wide, level concrete sites with concrete patios and picnic tables. The only reason I rated them only satisfactory for service is because reservations must be made either on-line or during the day since the phone rings into the city building and is only answered during business hours. There is no cable and we were not able to pull in any stations by our antenna. Wi-Fi worked well once you got through the hassle of downloading their program to check for anti-virus. All utilities were conveniently located and worked well with plenty of water pressure. Our only complaint is they have a two-dog limit. We foster and rescue tiny dogs and never know for sure how many we will have with us at any particular time. I really hate these restrictions because I don't understand how three or even four small dogs could cause as much disruption or make as much mess as two 70-pounders. We will definitely stay here again any time we can meet their pet restriction. - SandyA

This gem has become our home away from home in the summer. Beautiful campground nestled right on the banks of the Kentucky River. Sites are concrete and level with concrete patios. Full hookups right where they need to be and super clean. It's a fairly new park with a LOT of pull-through sites and several back-ins. Our favorite sites are the back-ins that are overlooking the river. I've always paid in advance on their website or called the office as there's nobody on site that I've ever seen. Every now and then a City of Carrollton truck might wander through (the park is city owned) but that's about it. No hassles whatsoever. Carrollton has several good sit down restaurants, a Walmart and a Kroger, so almost anything you'd need is just a few miles away. If you're feeling adventurous, take a trip across the bridge to Madison, Indiana where you'll find more mighty fine eating establishments, antique shops, cafes, etc. - sixtires58
