We were camping in mid-March and got an off season rate. Unfortunately the bath facilities were not open. There are pit/vault toilets nearby. The sites are all gravel and vary greatly in the degree of level. We were able to choose our site since the campground was nearly empty. The park is really nice and very quiet. We camped at Spring Mill State Park in a Travel Trailer.

The State Park is beautiful. There are many trails from moderate to rugged. Some of the trails wind through old growth hardwood forests. The Inn is very nice and I would recommend eating a meal in the restaurant. The food is great! Don't miss the pioneer village and its many activities.

Seemed to be little to no daily cleaning of the shower houses. They needed some updating. There were some small sinkholes gathering water that needed to be filled in the sites. Finally, there's poor cell service or WiFi. We camped at Spring Mill State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

If you want to swim, go on a weekend because that's the only time it's staffed. They have a beautiful pool and I've been to this campground dozens of times and NEVER been able to go swimming. My fault I guess. If you go exploring the caves, bring a flashlight, and an extra pair of shoes. Finally, get mosquito repellent. Lots of it...or you'll need a transfusion.

The park is a great experience but the campground is questionable. Sites are small and close together. It can get muddy here when it rains. Some low spots in the RV sites and the sites do vary quite a bit in length. Best to get an advance look if possible prior to making a reservation. Our site (90) was a pull through and long enough for our motor home plus toad. Water can be a problem as the water spigots are few and far between. We camped at Spring Mill State Park in a Motorhome.

The park itself is quite amazing, and worth the visit, but the campground is hit and miss, unfortunately. While we were there (4th of July weekend, 2015) it had rained heavily and many of the sites were flooded, some so much so that they were barely usable. Our spot (15) was so steep that it took over 2 feet of elevation in the nose to get level, and due to the muddy condition of the spot, our chocks kept slipping, causing the trailer to slowly creep toward the road.

The water hookup required a long extension (it was approx. 30 feet from our camper) but was in good condition. Water is connected to a 4x4 post and has 2 to 4 spigots to serve multiple campsites (each with their own spigot.) The electrical post was in good order and very close to the site. The picnic table was in good condition, but unusable due to the slope of the site. The 'site' was mostly mud, with some straw from previous campers, and the only gravel was at the bottom of the slope. We did have some slippage issue backing up the slope, pushing the camper, but that was primarily due to the wet conditions. Still, more gravel and a better grade would have been most welcome.

The bathrooms were regularly maintained during the holiday weekend, and were acceptable considering how much mud there was. Inconsiderate campers were far more of an issue than park staff, who were diligently trying to keep up, and staying polite and friendly while they were doing it. Be advised that parking can be atrocious. There is apparently no effort to enforce the vehicle limit any longer, and we saw many spots with three vehicles stuffed in, encroaching on the narrow road and making larger campers really work to avoid a problem. Overflow parking is available, but so unused that moss and lichens cover much of the paved surface, so this seems to be a chronic issue.

If you go, be sure to do as much research on your spot as you can - many are challenging (poorly situated, poor drainage, tight turns, steep slopes, etc.) We camped at Spring Mill State Park in a Tent Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Camp only when it's going to be dry, or at least when it has not recently been rainy, and visit in advance if possible to scope out a good sight. Visit the historic village, take a cave tour (go as early as possible to get a reservation!), eat at the lodge, have fun!

We enjoy camping here. The village is nice. Good hiking trails, plus the Gus Grissom memorial. You should be careful; there are some bad campsites so pay attention to the description when making reservations. We camped at Spring Mill State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a beautiful, well kept state park. The bathrooms and shower houses seemed to be kept clean even though we were there on a busy weekend. Our pull-through site was sunny, but there were many shady sites throughout the campground. The water hookups can be fairly far away, so take extra hose. We used about a 100 feet of hose. Several of the sites do seem to have a fair amount of slope. We camped at Spring Mill State Park in a Motorhome.

My favorite Indiana State Park campground thus far! Very large & spacious campground. If you go to camp store during the day, you can purchase evening hayride tickets. Best sites are 83, 81, 49, 55, 165, 167 & 187. The outside lots of the VIP area (116-122 ), the grassy areas of (67, 68, 70 & 71) are great camping sites, as well. If going with a group, I recommend 90 & 100 or 111, 133, 129 & 128. Park itself is very large, so bring your bike or plan to drive if visiting trails and nature center. We camped at Spring Mill State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We camped here this past weekend (Labor Day 2013) and had the best time. The park itself has a great deal to do, with a hiking trails, nature center, biking, birdwatching, history, cave tours, and more. They have the best camp store we've ever encountered: fully stocked with just about everything you can imagine (fresh foods of all kinds, RV supplies, activities, snacks of all stripe, a wide variety of cold drinks, even camp cookbooks! Our site (#16) had a steep grade, they called it 'extreme' but we could not level out. The entire spot, except one small patch, was hard packed dirt and the vehicle area was gravel. (A bit dusty since it had not rained in some time.) Water was easily reachable, located between out site and the site just next door, and the electric hookup was immediately next to the parking area. Our electric tested out and worked perfectly, (not often the case) and the water was clean and fully functional. The sites appear to be kept very clean and in good shape all over the park. We saw park staff in repair vehicles working on the bathroom once and repairing a faulty pedestal in another spot. Housekeeping cleaned the bathrooms twice a day when we were here: very impressive! Although the facilities were not new, they were very well kept up with and in great shape. Firewood was $4.25 per bundle at the camp store, and although we didn't buy any, they have plenty of ice on hand at reasonable prices. I'm not sure if the bicycle rentals were reasonable or not, but given the prices for everything else I'd say that they were completely fair. The bikes themselves were in good shape and there were a good number to rent. For those interested in activities, the pool is huge, clean, and very inviting, the nature center is very well laid out with a good deal of literature and signage, in addition to very friendly staff. The hiking trails are well marked and offer great variety (waterfront, old growth forest, Karst topography features, etc.). The short cave tour is by flat bottom boat and is well worth the $3 fee (arrive at 9am to book whatever time you want, they sell out early and you can only book for that day.) The historic village is in amazing shape, had plenty of staff on hand when we were here, and is truly beautiful. If you like CCC history (as I do) this is a great place to visit: the CCC did quite a bit here and it shows. Park staff were extremely friendly and helpful and we were very positively impressed with them given the extreme load on the park during the holiday weekend. They have two dump stations (located at the camper check-in as they often are) to speed exiting, but the line was quite long given that the park was at full capacity for the holiday. We don't use them so I can's speak to their condition, but at a glance they appeared to be clean and well maintained as far as I could tell from 5 feet away. We have added this park to our top parks list and plan to return regularly. It's a fantastic park with so much to do, great staff, and great camping! We camped at Spring Mill State Park in a Motorhome.

The addition of the mountain bike trail made our stay even nicer than in years past. I also found out that the DNR purchased Cave River Valley where I would camp and explore the caves many years ago. A shortage of funds has limited its development but should be a nice addition to Spring Mill only if the caves can remain protected. Be aware that many sites are not level and the water hook ups may be as much as 100 feet from your camper. We purchased our corn meal in the village and sought relief from the heat in the Park's fantastic pool. A Friday evening meal at the Inn was very enjoyable. We camped at Spring Mill State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Helpful staff. Good dining at lodge. Clean park. Good history. Take an extra 50' water hose so you can reach the centralized water hookup. Have extra "support" boards, etc., to help level unit on uneven spots. Good roads. We camped at Spring Mill State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

I spent the first weekend of October here, what a fun weekend! If you want to stay here, you must make reservations six months in advanced or you will not get in. The park is extremely popular with the locals! The park was sold out, and I found out why on Saturday night. The shut down vehicle traffic and everyone went trick-or-treating. They hold a contest for the best decorated site, and the campers do go out of their way to make it a FUN weekend. Our site sorta had water, it was on the wrong side, and sharing the site next to us. If I needed water, I would have dragged out all the hoses to get to it, but I left the house with a 1/4 tank of fresh water. There are very few pull through sites and the standard site is very very tight for a 40 foot Motorhome and toad. I've never been here this late in the season, and plan to return next year at the same time. Camping fees do not include a $5.00 fee to enter the park. The horse stables are gone, bike trails replaced the horse trails. Next weekend, the village will be active. No TV, No Wi-Fi, talk about technology withdraw. We camped at Spring Mill State Park in a Motorhome.

A beautiful state park. We stayed in site #37 in the Section 1 Electric. It was a challenge getting our 32 foot fifth-wheel into the site. It is very quiet in Section 1. There is quite a bit of privacy and trees. However, choose your site carefully. Some sites would have been impossible for us to get in to. The Olympic-sized swimming pool is great ($2 per person). We also enjoyed the boat ride through Twin Caves ($3 per adult, $1 per child). We camped at Spring Mill State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed at campsite #64. It was completely shaded and the pad was fairly level and was mixed gravel and dirt. They have a very large pool that is about 1/2 mile from campground. The best part of the park is the pioneer village and mill. It is beautifully kept with a large mill in the center surrounded by several smaller buildings. Each building has a volunteer dressed in period appropriate clothing. They are great about answering questions and make it more fun for the kids. We had a great experience and have already booked another trip there! We camped at Spring Mill State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Stayed in Section 2 electric. Beautiful campground. Relatively quiet even though we stayed a holiday weekend. All sites have water and electric, unusual for an Indiana State Park. All sites are large and many form nice community areas if you have a group camping together. If you look at the map and draw a line from the entrance road straight back through the campground the site to the right of that line will be better. Sites to the left are lower elevation and would tend to get muddier on a wet weekend. Also, sites on the far left are entirely shaded, nice in the summer but muddy in the spring. We camped at Spring Mill State Park in a Travel Trailer.
