This is an OK overnight stay, the gravel roads need to be maintained better. Lots of puddles to drive through after a moderate rain. The owner seems to be obsessed with warning signs about hidden cameras and violaters being proscecuted. Does not give the place a friendly vibe. The lady who checked us in was not at all friendly. Having said that our site was level and we did not have to unhook, although I had to pull forward to dump in the morning. Utilities are located in odd places as others have said. - midnightpumpkin

This is an older park trying to recreate itself by advertising pull through sites. This is true, but only because they have taken two old back-to-back sites and termed them a pull through....but without rearranging the hookups! This resulted in almost useless sewer, water, and electric. Likely a reason for poor 30 amp only service, i.e. old wiring. Not only is the electric old, but the hookup is not where it neefs to be: the kind lady suggested we hookup to the electric on the adjoining site! The water and sewer placements were also really useless. We did not even try to hook up our water and sewer. Luckily we had used a good campground the night before and had empty grey and black tanks and a full 100 gallons of fresh water. The above will hopefully help other people understand the variety of evaluations. On the positve side, the park was quiet and well kept. The Wi-Fi worked decently. The many trees prevented our satellite from picking up a signal...which encouraged us to talk and watch dvd's. It is what it is. Given our experience we would not likely return. Sewer, water, and solid electricity, even 30 amp, need to be offered at a minimum and this park does not do that. Narrow access road; hope no one comes the other way. - michcamper38

We stayed one night. Park only has 30 amp service, which is as advertised. However, as others have commented, with a single AC running... 13 amp load, the voltage dropped to 97 volts. Personally, I feel that voltages below ~110volts are unacceptable and very hard on the coaches equipment. The owner allowed us to connect to an adjacent power connection and the loaded voltage came up to just over 110volts. The sites were once gravel, but at least on our sight, very little was left. We will not stay again. - Don-kim

We are here for Sat night only. It is a nice campground and the people are friendly. So friendly they partied past 2am right across the street. I am sure they could be heard throughout the park. If that noise was not enough the golf cart races with a least 10 carts continued to at least midnight. When we stayed, it was not a busy weekend. No festivals or shows in the area. We thought we would spend a quiet night and see the covered bridges in the area. The night was anything but quiet. If you are looking for a friendly place to stay up all night then bring your PBR and golf cart. This is the place for you. Roads are rough on RV's. Max speed 20 mph. Come during the week. You'll love the place. The park does supply internet. No phone service, satellite, TV or radio. - Beas

Nice folks running the park, which was somewhat under construction so we were the only trailer in the park except some permanent folks across a creek that separated the areas. Definitely would stay again, although it is quite aways from anyplace along a back country road. - living large

The park was not easy to get to, but it was worth it. Admittedly we were there mid-week, but it was obviously a clean and quiet place. We very seldom pay for a campground because most are crowded and noisy. We needed a place to hang for the night after a bad couple of days. This was just the bill. One small issue was the cut down bush that was hard to see in the dark, but that was a minor problem. - Matt_C

This is an interesting place. On the one hand it is huge and open with a giant cut grass field. It is quiet and out of the way. But it is very old and run down in the restroom/shower department. Checking was a bit strange. I called a month before and was told I didn't need a reservation and that there would be plenty of space. When I arrived the girl said they were all full... she then went and got another woman who said there was one spot left. This kind of stuff makes me worry as I don't like scrambling for a campground if one falls through. - daa10496

This was a great overnight stop. None of the negatives noted in the earlier reviews. It was clean and nice and all of the staff were great. When we were there it was very quite since it was off season. It is a little tight and don't expect to get sat. because it is very tree covered. It was very quite. Would would certainly stay there again. - TheJim

Narrow access roads, interior roads gravel. Pull-through sites were long enough to not unhook, but we needed a block to level. There were many permanents and a nice playground. The bathhouse was old and in need of work. This is a good spot for an overnight if one is self-contained. We did not choose to use any facilities. - Nana2

State park with minimal services. Only has power connections (30 & 50A at our site). Water faucet was near our site but did not have a hose connection. Only 3 "comfort stations" (restrooms with flush toilets, etc). Several pit toilets around. Park was quite busy with everything from tent campers to large 5th wheels. Some sites were small and/or unlevel. Poor phone signal ATT. Not a good choice for those used to fancy campgrounds with WiFi, cable, etc. But we enjoyed ourselves. Traffic and kid activities died down at quiet time. We prefer sites with power and water minimum but we were fine for a couple of days on our fresh water tank. Park roads were narrow and had tight turns but accessible with our 35' 5th wheel. $35 per night is too high for what's available. - Motorcyclekelly

This SRA was overall nice. There wasn't , however, much to do. The showers need upgraded. The were push-button type and very difficult to shower with that type of faucet. Restrooms are also in need of upgrade. My wife complained about the large amount of insects in women's restroom caused by the fact that the screens were missing. Overall it was a nice campground. - thegrinch

I had my pick of sites in the electric area and was able to get a fairly level site. This was very expensive for one night because I had to pay a $7 entrance fee (should have been $9 for out-of-state, but host gave me a discount) plus $34 for the site. My site was OK, but the pad was old and very narrow so had to walk on wet grass and mud. Also, I did not use the restrooms, but noticed that most of them were pit toilets. Lots of trees so I probably had the only site where I could get satellite reception, and Verizon was 3G only, and lucky to get that. Also, this place might be difficult for big rigs because the roads were narrow and it had some tight turns. I agree with the previous posted that this place needs some updates, but I was glad to have a very quiet, peaceful one-night stop. - judy_online

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

We stayed here for two nights while visiting an area attraction. It as a campground so the majority of the sites were seasonal. The few overnight sites were level gravel and were easy to get in and out of, although the road to the campground was a couple of miles of gravel with lots of low hanging tree limbs that hit the top of our motorhome. There was a tremendous amount of golf cart traffic. Most of the people in the carts were friendly and waved as they went by, but the late night traffic made it difficult to sleep. They advertised a swimming lake but the beach was just a small sandy area on a small pond of very brackish water. We saw no one swimming there even though it was a hot weekend. They also advertised a petting barnyard. Our young grandson was looking forward to petting some animals but we only saw two horses and a rooster, and the rooster chased him and tried to peck him. We could hear other animals inside but the door was locked. There was no sign stating what their hours were and who to contact to open the door. We probably would not stay here again. - User3125

Most of the sites at this campground are seasonal; in fact, during our four night stay there was only one night when there were other overnight. What this meant was we didn't have any neighbors really close. It was very quiet. We did meet a few of the neighbors and they were really friendly and helpful. I wouldn't recommend this campground for people with children, because one little boy came over and asked us if we had seen any kids around (he was looking for someone to play with) and when we said we hadn't he burst in to tears. The site was fairly large and well maintained. The male host was very friendly and even sold us firewood the first night after the camp store was closed. The female host was, unfortunately, not so friendly. The firewood they sold us was unseasoned, but one of the year-round neighbors traded us for some that would burn without being drenched in lighter fluid. We went on the canoe trip, which had it's ups and downs: we didn't see anyone else on the river the entire time, but then we had to wait for 75 minutes for the guy to come pick us up at the end. He apologized for the wait and said that the way that trips are scheduled means this happens a lot. My husband said the "swimming pond" was actually a little mud pit not much bigger than our site so we didn't bother with that. We had fun here, but I doubt we will return. - User2020

We visited this park and had a great time. It is very well maintained and clean. There is a cute country store that has groceries, snacks and souvenirs. The staff was friendly and the activities were a lot of fun. We went on a canoe trip one afternoon and a horseback ride the next morning. There are marked hiking trails through the woods, two lakes for fishing and boat rentals on site. We would recommend this park for a stay in the country. It is located on a gravel road, but it is well maintained. It did not bother us and it reminded us we were not in town. - Lea46224

This is a small county campground. The sites are gravel, the spaces tight, but level. The utilities are a bit weird, electric on one side, water and sewer on the other. Glad we had extra hose. There were only a couple other campers here. The bathrooms are clean, but need updating. We were here about 4 days visiting family. - esta34950

Needed a last minute reservation for an overnighter while passing through. Little did I know it was the annual Covered Bridge Festival in Parke County, In and the core was in Rockville. The park normally has a two night minimum but they accommodated us for one night. On arrival, a staff member walked me to the site and advised us where to unhitch the tow. The campground is small, has a community feel to it and is a great location for the festival. The sites are tight with minimal pull through. Utilities worked well and it was a fairly quiet place. I would stay here again. - jl2000

Nice quiet campground close to town most spots looked to be level and lots of shade we stayed only a couple days and there were several other campers in the park I would recommend this campground and we will stay again if we are back in the area - Brad79394

We only stayed here for one night on our way through the area. The woman who checked us in didn't seem to know too much about the park, i.e. trails, etc. We were in site AA-36, a pull-through which worked fine once we figured out that we were side by side with the neighboring motorhome, with our rigs facing opposite directions. The utility hookups were in the center between us, and it was a long run for some of the utilities. It would be nice if the website for this park would have a diagram of each site's location. We would have picked a different site. The park itself is very nice, lots of open fields and trails through the woods. We saw a deer and two fawns in the afternoon. It was very quiet and pleasant. Of course this was midweek after school started locally. Unfortunately we didn't get any Verizon service, which is important to us for more than a one night stay. - dbcordello

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

Small, homey campground. Big rig sites are narrow. We stayed there several months, at a rate of $350 a month, in 2006 and 2007. Working-campers welcome. Arrangements can be made to winter there, although the owners go to TX for the winter. - Working Full timer

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
