There are a few site with full hook-ups but not many. There is no swimming pool, but there is a beach front for swimming. Plenty of kids riding bikes and adults driving modified golf carts. Very family friendly. The weekend we were there they had activities planned for the whole family almost all day. Very roomy sites. We will go back! - sfrye5853

This is a actually a county owned parked not a state park. While the park area is fairly well maintained I cannot say the same for the campground. Most of the sites are unlevel, overgrown, and the sewer/water connections are poorly maintained. The shower houses are somewhat outdated and while cleaned every morning they were extremley dirty by the end of the day. There has been a new shower house built in the permanet camping area that seemed to be nicer than the two in the main campground. While this used to be one of our favorite campgrounds given its present condition we will not be back. - Builder1

Found this place on Good Sam's campground guide. It is run by a private non-profit club for the benefit of the local community. The majority of sites are seasonal campers with a limited number of overnight sites. Recommend that you call or email a day or more in advance as the office is closed during the day. We drove up with no reservations, but found a someone who directed us to one of the few available sites, A 50 amp and water crushed stone back in. The water was in the right location and shared by 4 sites each with there own shutoff. The electric was on the wrong side and the outlet itself was upside down which made securing our surge protector difficult. We had a fire ring and picnic table. The grounds seemed well cared for, but our fire ring was chock full of cans and garbage. This is not big rig friendly unless you can get one of the new sites that are off by themselves. Just keep an eye out for low wires. The people running the place are very nice and were helpful. TV via batwing was fair. We had networks but not CBS. Verizon cell and broadband were both good. - Bob and Inga

Convenient if you want to gamble at the casino. It's a nuisance having to call first then go to the hotel to register and get the key to unlock the hook-ups before pulling into the slip. They are level for 20' and under, not at all for our 45'. Another drawback is the 6am through 10pm mini train whistle that goes off every 15 minutes and runs next to the slips. It is a parking lot with back in RV slips, not a park. It just opened a few months ago so it's spotless, has a trash can for your use, nice wooden swings, full hook-ups that work great, the mini train takes you to the hotel and casino. The water, elect. and sewer hook-ups are at the back but we always travel with extra everything. I was unhappy with the constant 6am-10pm noise so we received a discount. Ask for high numbered sites and hope big rigs park by the train tracks to block the noise. - PERRELLAS

The current owners have only been here for 3 years. They were extremely friendly. It appears that they are really trying to improve the park, HOWEVER, the interior roads are gravel, the sites are gravel, but you don't know where the site ends and the grass begins. The sewer outlet was confusing, my site had 2, one covered by an old car trim and the other was covered in rocks. Water pressure was minimal. The 50 amp power was very good. The picnic table was almost unusable it was so rickety and needs painting. There was also a fire pit that we did not use. It appears that this park caters more to month by month then off the road and the price was really big for what you get. I did notice last year the price in the review was $25.. ?.. - walt66

We had reserved 50amp spot and when we arrived the male owner was outside. He just looked us and told us they only had one left. We didn't say we had it reserved but knew it would have been given away. We went inside, paid and parked. When I asked the male owner about internet, me snapped and said you can't even wait a day? Come to found out, only Internet if you were on their front porch. I don't know who lived in the houses across the road but the female owner said to use their internet, though she said she didn't know them.
Our broken picnic table was in the sun and on a slant, the male owner wasn't happy we used the one on the campsite beside us. There was only four campers there and we were squeezed next to one in our RV.
One couldn't walk around without watching close because of open sewer lines in ground. We parked beside our RV since no where else to park, owner told me to move. I told him I would not park in the narrow gravel areas because I could be hit. I told him if someone showed up and needed that 8' spot beside me I would move. No one ever showed up the entire weekend we were there.
Firewood was expensive and overpriced to camp in a short gravel lot with sewer ruts. We were treated bad when we first arrived and knew the male owner didn't want to be polite or cared.
We would never camp here again or recommend to even a dog. - DontWorryBeHappy

I was reading over the post below regarding Painter Creek RV Park. It would seem they had a bad experience. I disagree with their opinion entirely! I found the management very welcoming, in fact they helped me park and hook up. Our RV is 32 feet in length and the site was plenty big. The place was busy for the end of the season. I thought about this unhappy person and it would seem you cant please everyone. French Lick may seem like out in the "middle of nowhere" to some "city folk" but we won at the Casino. We took the grandson to the waterpark, and zip lines. There was plenty to do. Overall a very enjoyable experience. After spending the next day on the lake, (which the free boat ramp is only a mile from the park)we kicked back in the community area with another couple from Indianapolis. They stay yearly. For those of you who cant live without a mall or pavement, I recommend the state park. I myself enjoy the comfort of this clean, well kept park. I intend to return again. I had no problems with internet or noise. - Sharlee

Our site for 4 nights provided us with a distant lake view during the early fall, this park is huge and have lots of camp sites. Sites are fairly close together with mostly level pads for your camper and other vehicles. Looked to me that many of the better sites where reserved in advance and I will be doing that the next time we return to this park. There is a lot to do here with many hiking trails, visitor center and easy lake access to walk the shoreline, but the lake is the big draw here. Huge lake with great fishing and boating. Entrance fee into the park for campers. The only major complaint I have is the number of fly's that where in the area, they swarmed around everyone campers and when the door was opened in they came, but they didn't bother us anywhere else in the park. I should have know it was a problem when the camp store had fly strips for sale. - Psi500

The park was hard to find and the campsite was also hard to find. We were there in a 40' RV and most of the sites were small and back-in. For the price, I have stayed at better State Parks. The Beach area was closed because the water level was so low. There were very few campers there. - mnmwillis

This is a very nice campground. The check-in process was very easy. Most of the sites are nicely spaced. We stayed at Site Number 201. We loved the site, however we wish it had more grass (it was mostly dirt). Patoka Lake State Park is a very nice, well kept park. The only real complaint we have about the campground is that it has no water or sewer hook-ups at the sites -- even with conserving water, this makes it difficult for a family of five to stay much longer than two days without have to hook-up the camper to our vehicle and driving to the dump station and fresh water fill station (separate locations). I have seen this problem at many of the state parks in Indiana. However, even though there are some negatives about this campground, we will probably be back for a one night (or two at the most) stay. - Penny C
