9 RV Parks near Madison, Indiana
Oct 2016 - $32.00
This is a nice and spacious campground. The spots are not too close to each other. In the middle of the electric loop it is very open and there is not a ton of privacy. The perimeter sites are very nice and private. Sites 18-25; 34-35 are shaded and nice. Site 35 might be the most private spot in the park. Site 34 (ours) is also very nice and private. Also the tree on the left side (site #34 - as you look at the site) is now gone. Most of the non-electric (tent area) is mostly very private and may sites are shaded. Some of them are really nice, but would be tight for any trailer of size. - kettlebelle

Most of the sites are well spaced and fairly level. Interior roads are asphalt and easy to navigate, with packed gravel pads. Nice fire ring with a very usable grate for cooking. The campground was completely full but still seemed pretty quiet. AT&T signal was weak, but generally usable at our site. Only drawbacks of the park are no camp store and no water hookups. Historic downtown Madison is a short 5 minute drive. - Daryn

Flat, level sites. Bathrooms in electric were surprisingly clean during Labor Day weekend. Very few water hookups at bath houses and was afraid hose wouldn't reach to fill trailer, but it did. Playgrounds could use a bit more equipment. No camp store, only firewood sales at gate. Best sites are 24, 40, 9, 11. If with a group, consider 54/55, 87/88 or 69/70. - Cicero Cachers

1. Horrible Bathroom/Shower (that you have to leave a 5.00 deposit to get a key). The conditions of the facilities is not acceptable. I wouldn't take a shower here even if I hadn't bathed in weeks. Water dripped on my head, from the ceiling skylight, as I used the toilet. Just BAD! 2. Standing water and mud everywhere... our campsite flooded with a small shower. 3. THE CRAZY bright street lights over every site... blaring all night long!!! Really, this is not camping! 4. The spaces are so tight that you can reach out a touch the campers next to you... our neighbors started slamming car doors at 6:15am on Sunday morning. Once I was awakened, I started counting... 40+ door slams before these idiots pulled away and left. Simply unexplainably rude!!! I know this is not the campgrounds fault... but, this shows you what kind of visitors you'll find here. Pro: The camp host was nice and tried to help us with a good attitude. - Clayton Turner

While there are sites on the north side of the one campground road, the sites on the river side are by far the most popular. The Ohio River is right outside your rear window (or if you pull a motor home in nose first, it's right outside your front window). The campsites, themselves, are way too close together putting your neighbors on either side just a few steps away. If there's any redeeming point about the spacing it's that each site is at a pretty hard angle making your "front" yard also your neighbor's "back" yard. If everyone just uses their front yard there's enough room for you to use the picnic table and set out some lawn chairs to watch the river. However, if your neighbor in a motorhome happens to want to pull in nose first that scheme is messed up and you end up with the front door of their RV matching up with the front door of yours - creating a shared front yard. On the other hand, the utility hookups actually support this approach because the water/electric hookups are on every other site. If you get an even numbered site they are on the normal, driver's side of the rig (when backing in). Otherwise, you either pull in nose first or you have to pass the hose/electric under the camper. There are no sewer hookups in the campground, but there is a dump station. The campground has for-pay WiFi. We didn't use it as our Verizon signal was a strong 4G. Also satellite TV was easy to get - after all you are basically aiming it out over the river and there are no trees in play. The bathrooms are old and worn but reasonably clean and in working condition. Because of the public nature of the campground (right along a city street) you pay a $5 deposit to get a bathroom key. The number of sites is limited so, if you are coming during the busy time of the year I strongly suggest you call ahead for reservations - especially if you want a riverside spot. - nazpaz

Check-in very smooth. Friendly campground host. Sites VERY tight! Mostly level pads. $5.00 key deposit for shower/restrooms, refundable upon check-out. Clean but peeling paint. Ok for shower, plenty of pressure and hot water. Additional fee for Wi-Fi. $1day/$5week. Signal for Wi-Fi did not reach site, but short walk to Gazebo for excellent signal. Campground was at capacity during our stay. With that getting into some spots could prove to be difficult with awnings. The views of the river are second to none. Watching the river traffic was a great way to relax from our trip into Downtown Madison. Just a short drive away. We would stay here again. - Us2OnTheRoad

This is a basic campground right on the Kentucky River. It is big rig friendly. Most of the sites are pull through, but there are ones that back up to the river. Full hook ups, with speedy WiFi (free). No real other amenities has a bathhouse (didn't use), small playground & walking trails. You can walk about a mile to the Ohio River, nice park there. Closer to Indiana then Ohio. It's an hour drive to Cincinnati & to Louisville & Lexington. Grocery store is in town about 5 min ride. Nice State Park that has a lodge, mini golf, fishing is about 5 min away. - jcpjane

Great little park. We were there 2 nights in August 2016. There are 33 spots, all concrete and level. There were only 4 other campers there when we were.
There is no cable TV, and the Wi-Fi is almost nothing, very iffy.
Short walk down to the rivers, and nice county town. Great barge watching on the Ohio River.
Most all are pull-thru, but we choose a back end that backed up to the Kentucky River. - archbarb

The service at this CG wasn't bad, there just wasn't any - we arrived after 5 pm and checked in using a self-pay honor system. Most of the people at this small CG were locals enjoying a spring weekend with family/kids. This is a fine overnight stop. The CG seems to be a local amenity offered by the county and is fairly basic although very clean. All the hook-ups worked fine. No cable or wi-fi. - virginianola

This property is a State Resort Park because it has a lodge with hotel rooms, a restaurant, golf course, and cabin rentals. Kentucky classifies its resort parks by these amenities, not by how well appointed the campground is. Knowing this distinction in advance will keep you from being disappointed.
General Butler offers a campground that is quite serviceable. Nothing too fancy, just decent place to park. We were here during Thanksgiving and family members stayed in the lodge while we were at the campground. For this type of get-away General Butler was perfect, and we spent 3 comfortable nights here. - Flying Mantis

Not sure why all the good comments on this park????... First of all if they did not list it as a resort and did not list it as big rig friendly I would not have stopped here. For a State park it is ok but do not say it is a resort. First of all it is very tight to get around in. I had a very hard time getting my 36' 5th wheel turned around at the end of the full hook up loop. The sites are also very short and many are hard to get into with a larger RV. Now once you are in the water hook up is a long way off, so make sure you have lots of hose. I have a 75' and a 50' hose and used all of it. This is the case for a lot of the sites. Also they have a sign saying if there is a yellow tag on the post the site is reserved. Almost all the sites had yellow tags??? We were there Tuesday night ....the yellow tags were for the weekend??????? Now lets discuss the copperhead problem. Evidently it is severe enough they have a sign up advising you to not go out at night with out lights to the point they will loan you a flashlight if you don't have one????????? I'm not sure if this is the reason the shower houses were closed or not. - steelpony

Came to stay for one night. Everything we read said this state park had big rig access; not so. I even verified that this was true when I called. We travel in a 40' with a toad and we had to unhook to get around a turn and we now have a nice crunch on one side of the rig.
The park itself is nice enough, mostly quiet (some traffic noise) but we won't return because of the access issues. - Marti & Roger

This is a local park with a majority of Water/Electric sites but have 10 "Full" Hook-up sites. Very Clean park, with 3 playgrounds for kids. The only downside is that the Restrooms are NOT heated or air conditioned. There is a "Camp Host" on site. Water is turned off in Nov. Reservations can be made in advance. They also give discounts to Coast to Coast members. - md_procouple

Very nice RV park just over the Ohio River near Florence/Vevay Indiana. Easy to get to, entrance well marked. Interior roadways were completely paved, as were all sites. Sites were nice and long, easily accommodate big rigs (we're 42 ft. long). Plenty of room to park your tow vehicle. Sites were pretty decent distance apart. Park is family owned, and staff very friendly. Utilities are housed in marine grade unit, and have "night lights" at their tops. Utilities were well positioned and convenient for use. Park is in small foothills, so really warm days (76 degrees in Nov 2016) followed by very cool temps (38-40 degrees) at night made for heavy fog in the mornings. Sometimes it was so foggy, you couldn't see across the small pond. Stayed 2 weeks, and loved it. Nice weather during the day, and cool at night. Office sells firewood, so we had a campfire a couple times during our stay. Park is convenient to nearby casino, and about 20 minutes from nearest Walmart in Carrollton, KY. We'd stay here again, especially with the small pond that is stocked with good size small mouth bass and crappies (catch and release). Interior roads were wide, and obstruction-free. Very easy to navigate with large rigs. - usamacdonald2

Stayed for a week so price reflects the weekly rate. We are newbies. This was our first experience at a park with our new motorhome. We loved it. The park is clean and well maintained. The girl at the counter couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. Everyone seems so happy and friendly. We come to this area often for the activities. We will definately stay here again. - RedBeard149

Large RV park. Arrived after dark. Paperwork to site left at office. Hardly anyone there when I visited in early September. Nice concrete pad. Very good wifi. Nice bike/walk path attached to site. Would return if on my way through this area, not a destination park for me, for others a nearby casino may be an attraction. - RVStudent

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 park is about 15 miles off of I-71. It is on a winding dangerous one lane country road with many sharp twists and turns. A truly nerve racking drive after several hours on the highway. When we arrived at 6 PM there was no one around. Some sites were closed down for the winter. We had to search for one with water. Store/reception run down. The nicest thing about this campground was the signs directing to the park. Once there it was down hill fast. I would never stay here again. - murph164

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

This is a nice park with all sites paved and all roads paved as well. Again, be aware most Indiana state parks don’t have water or sewer available at the sites, and this one was no exception. However, there are plenty of water filling stations throughout the park. Real negative about this park is the dump stations. They have only one station with two pipes. You will wait a while on a Sunday with only having one station. They really need to add more. We stayed in the B loop site 116. Nice site tucked into the woods. They are attempting to grow grass on this site, and had hay down. This is probably a hard task with all of the tree cover and constant foot traffic in and around the site. Stay away from Loop A if you have a larger rig (20+ft) as it is super tight and all the perimeter sites are best suited for pop ups. The interior sites are not quite as shady, but still have big trees. The C loop has some nice sites, but be aware that many of those perimeter sites have a large sloping driveway and would be difficult for a larger trailer to get level. I believe the tongue of the trailer would be on the ground and the back of the trailer a good 3-4 ft high in the rear. It was a holiday weekend so it was very busy, but not overwhelming. The bathhouses are older, but seem to be cleaned a few times a day. The pool is nice. They have a huge lake and multiple playgrounds in and around the park. We will stay here again I am sure, just wishing the state would pony up and install water at all of the sites. AT&T wireless has 5 bars and Verizon has 3 bars. Beware that some of the sites will not have access to the southern sky due to trees. Site 166, however, faced Southwest and made it easy to find Directv satellites. One more thing, they charge $7.00 to enter the park, not included in your paid camping fees, and the pool is $3.00 per day to use it as well. The pool is a good 5 min drive from the campground. - jmcmanama
