Buffalo Ridge is very popular, especially on weekends as t h e leaves are changing. Site 77 had 50amp electric...surprised, but pleased. Site poles make back in quite tricky. Some shade,close to bath house, fairly level so a nice site. RIvers need to use the West Gate entrance since our rig will not fit thru North Gate covered bridge...make sure your GPS routes you correctly. - Jitime40

Brown County State Park is the largest of the IN state parks. During fall leaf season, the views of the hills will be spectacular and the campgrounds will be full. The park is near Nashville. The three campgrounds are Buffalo Ridge, Raccoon Ridge, and Taylor Ridge. Buffalo Ridge and Taylor Ridge have electric sites, while most of Raccoon Ridge does not. (There are also horsemen's primitive and electric campgrounds in a different area of the park.) We camped in Buffalo Ridge Campground the end of September. We were there during the week, so the campground wasn't full and there were very few children. This mattered because our site backed up to a small playground. During the summer, there probably are a lot of kids using it, which means sites 3, 5 and 7 should be avoided if you are bothered by noise and activity. Also, many of the sites are full sun; the park lost over 300 trees to the ash borer in recent years. Don't trust the pictures on ReserveAmerica - they predate the tree loss. Many sites are not level. There is 30 amp electric service at sites, and potable water is available in the campground (no water or sewer at sites). There is an easily accessible dump station. Cell service via AT&T was good at Buffalo Ridge, with a solid 2 bars of 4G LTE. The Verizon hotspot also worked well. We were told that cell reception at the Taylor Campground was not good. There was a clear shot at the SW sky for satellite TV (Dish). The bathrooms were clean and well maintained. Showers, at least in the women's section, had toilet-styled solid doors, but the shower curtain inside didn't do much to screen off the shower from the dressing area. Just be careful. One important note: Enter the park at the West Gate. The North Entrance has a covered bridge with clearance of 9 feet and a weight limit of 3 tons. All in all, this is a great park and we will definitely return! - Indybear

This was our first visit to Brown County State park and we will be back soon! We camped four nights over Labor Day weekend, the park was sold out. Despite the hundreds of campers, the park remained clean, well maintained, and was never less than family friendly. The park is easy to navigate a big rig in, and all the roads are paved and well marked. This park has three loops available for RVs, but Raccoon Ridge is mostly primitive and most sites do not have electricity. Buffalo Ridge is at the beginning of the park and we would describe it as "city camping." Lots of sites, crammed together, with a tree or two scattered throughout. We drove and rode our bikes through this area, and it appeared clean and family friendly but was WAY too congested for our liking. We stayed in Taylor Ridge, which offers paved and gravel sites in very wooded areas. All sites have electric. Throughout the entire campground potable water is available. No sites have full or water hookups. This park has a mix of fully plumbed bath houses and pit toilets (glorified outhouses). While we only showered in our RV, we did check them out and they appeared very clean and well stocked. Some sites are quite a walk to a full bath house. Excellent cell and 4G service, Verizon. We got tons of local TV channels, no Internet at this park. There is a cute camp store for odds and ends things you may have forgotten and the park is 15 minutes from a grocery store. Overall we experienced some good hiking, our 6 year old was able to ride a pony ($3.50), and we enjoyed the nature center. This park doesn't disappoint if you're looking for spectacular views, good trails, and lots of nature. - WeisnerFamily4

We have stayed here a number of times but this time was the best. Since the last time here they have upgraded 3 sites to outstanding sites! New grill, concrete patio with new table and chairs. plus a 2 seat glider and a really nice fire ring. I have to say, with the improvements, this has been the best camping site we have ever had. I hope they do more sites like this instead of just the 3. The staff is very nice and very helpful. They guided me to my site and even helped with parking the RV in the spot. We camped in a motor home and pulled a trailer with a motorcycle. We were able to keep the trailer hooked up. Very quiet and peaceful. Only complaint, the WIFI was weak and sometimes not working. I would recommend this to anyone. We were be back. - Mike4625

We are repeat visitors to this park. The park is clean, quiet, well-maintained and the owners are welcoming. In the past, our only complaint was the size of the sites. We formerly camped with a 29-ft travel trailer and we recently camped with our new 35-ft unit. We reserved one of the new deluxe sites. Wow! We had a tinted-concrete patio, composite picnic table and glider, and stone fire-pit. The landscaping on our site was beautiful. A plus is that the park is convenient to Nashville (IN), Columbus (IN) and Bloomington (IN). We made another reservation at the conclusion of this visit. - TomandVic

One of the best campgrounds I've ever been too. There were many children and pets, but it didn't feel crowded or noisy. The site was level and shaded. The facilities were extraordinarily clean. The person who guided us to our spot was very knowledgeable and helpful. - evervescent

Older park in need up some major upgrading, our site looked like an afterthought as it was between the tool shop and a cabin. The utilities were good and easy to connect to. - Teacher's Pet

This park is actually in Gnawbone, a few miles from Nashville. The sites are somewhat close together and the road might be a little close for some. Otherwise, the sites were level, wifi excellent and the owners very friendly and helpful. - hudsonguy

Agree with previous comments. Park is still clean and well maintained with very helpful owners. Park was pretty full over Labor Day weekend, but emptied out the day after. Price is a bargain.
Only negative is that some of sewer connections were elevated off the ground thus making dumping a little tricky, i.e. dumping uphill. - GerMarV

If it weren't for their music festivals I don't know how this place stays in business. Wind blowing trash around & trash in the burn pits, rude staff and the park in poor condition. No shut offs or breakers on the power pedestals, potential electrical hazard. For what is offered the 33.17 is excessive. Typical commercial campground sights too close and most likely would not pass state fire marshal code. We stayed here in an RV and won't be back. - birdbrains

We stayed here for a music festival and the campground was very crowded. We came for the music, so of course it is convenient to stay in the campground during the festival. The restrooms near the back of the campground were open on Fri and Sat but smelled horrible. The restrooms near the stage were open and in much better shape. The showers are open from 7-10 am and pm, so if not there by 10 am would have to wait unit after the music starts to get a shower. We loved the music and friends we gather with each year, so will be going again next year. I'm not sure I would stay here otherwise. - Donna Jo

Spooky park. Thought we were on a empty drive in theater lot. Would not stay here again. In fact, we left after the first night. Stayed in the fall and there was no one around. All but one restroom closed. Would not recommend during off season for sure. - Julie B

We stayed 3 night during the week. With over 200 camping spots I counted only 12 campers using the campground during our stay. We had a nice view of Lake Monroe. It was peaceful and quite at this time of year, but I'm sure that in a few months I want to be no where near this campground as it is very popular with families and boaters. Lake Monroe is a beautiful lake with marinas and swimming beaches, it offers great boating and fishing. They have a camp store on site but for real shopping Bloomington is about 10 miles away. As with most all Indiana State properties they charge an entrance fee on top of the camping fee. - Psi500

Focusing on just the campground, and not the beautiful Monroe Lake property, this property just gets 'average', although it borders on poor. A prior review from years ago referenced bad roads and potholes inside the campground. Well, they're still there; the roads are terrible. This campground is old and tired, but it gets packed every weekend, because of the fact that it's adjacent to the lake. You'd think Indiana would spend some of the increased camping fees to fix the aging campgrounds.
Many sites have some sort of lake access or lake view, and others have only a short walk to a nice view or access. The 2-cars per site rule isn't enforced, and some people are camping in horse trailers and box trucks. Many of sites are not level, so trust the online booking when it indicates slope. Our site was listed as 'gentle' slope, but it sloped front to back AND left to right. It's also referred to as a 'gravel' site, but this site (nor any others) hasn't seen fresh gravel in years. Some RV sites looked like tent-only to me. Our AC was having a hard time keeping up after the campground filled up, due to an overloaded electric system. I'm guessing that the electrical system gets overloaded, as many of the RV sites are used by 20-amp tent campers with multiple crock pots, lights, etc. For $30 for electric-only sites, this campground isn't a great value, but daggone-it, we'll go back because we love the lake.
It is sort of fun to people-watch here, as it's sort of like going to the county fair. Things quieted down pretty nice after about 10pm, though, even on Saturday night, so even though it's a zoo during the day, you can still get some rest.
There is a marina on the property for boat rentals and various basics and sundries, and a little larger store at the park entrance that sells fishing gear and beer/wine/groceries. - fastalker64

Nice campground, but lots of traffic with all of the people pulling boats and campers. The restrooms are older, but were kept clean. - bgb1066

If you're looking for a quiet place to just relax and chill out this park is the place. Beautiful lake and largest lake in Indiana so bring your water toys. No camp store but Bloomington is close by and you can buy ice and fire wood from the front gate when you check in. Our site was very shady and lots of privacy as there are trees in between most of the sites. I highly recommend this Park and will go back in the fall. There is no sewer hook up only electricity. Dump station available and there are places for you to fill your water tanks. - Barb Thiel

We stayed here for 4 nights, mid week we had the campground loop to ourselves on the weekend the loop filled up with boaters for Monroe Lake. our site was huge so we had no close campers. Staff was excellent Beach was nice and the water warm. By the time we left on Sunday the loop was deserted . We will return as its only 1 1/2 hours from our house and with the senior pass it makes this campground an outstanding value. - Psi500

Typical federal park. No sewer, but we did get a spot with water and electric. Showers were old and out dated, in need of remodel. Only one shower available in our section. The pad was gravel, somewhat level. We had a picnic table and fire ring. It rained one of the days and the drainage was good. - esta34950

We used this park as a place to hibernate for a couple days en route to Mor Ryde in Elkhart on Labor Day weekend, and arrived Thursday afternoon.
We really wanted to like this park, and we expecting to, especially for the price. Unfortunately, that didn't turn out to be the case.
First off, this park is designed for small rv's. The sites are directly perpendicular to the roads, which are very narrow. We were praying it wouldn't rain, since we knew, in order to get out out of our site, were were going to have to cut across a large portion of grass that was pretty sunken in, at at a steep angle down, since our site was raised.
Our " super site " was nothing but ordinary. We were put in the one spot, I think in the entire park, where a tree blocked our rooftop dish.
We watched a couple people on Friday get escorted to their site, only to pull out and go to another, more level site.
The one positive note on our site is we had a nice view of a tree/ grassy area. We were enjoying watching the deer during the day, and fire flies at night, until tenters moved to the area.
This was definitely not our type of park, and will not return. - Mr&MrsFulltimers

Good overnite stop. Staff was friendly. Our site was level and wooded. No dog park, walk along the edge of the park. Many long term seasonal campers, most in good condition. Not a bad park though some sites were close. - amxpress

Good overnight stop but a bit cramped and really not for longer stay. We had a long pull through and did not have to unhook for the night which made leaving in the morning easier. I would give it a higher rating but they advertise wi/fi but it did not work nor from my understanding has it worked for a while. So either fix it or don't advertise that you have it. Facilities are well maintained and the bathrooms and showers were clean and modern. - momdoc

Older campground with narrow gravel sites, but 36' Class A with 4 slides fit easily. 50 amp power, water and sewer for $20 per night a great deal. Just off I-65 near Premium Outlet stores and several restaurants. Stayed overnight and would stay again. Cash or personal check only. - Travellin' Tina

Jam-packed resort type park with activities all weekend long. There was never an issue with the kids running out of things to do and the characters (Yogi, Boo-boo, Cindy) made several appearances. There was even a live band Saturday night! Camp store was nice with the essentials and plenty of souvenirs. Sites are typical private park arrangement; close together and no privacy. There are a few individual trees throughout the park but even the "wooded" sites don't have trees in between them or any real shaded sites. Make sure you have sewer hose ramps due to the sewer inlet on the ground being slightly uphill from your site. I was also taken aback by our neighboring site. Although they were pretty quiet (except Friday night, when they were outside talking past midnight), there was always four cars at the site and I counted 14 camp chairs. I thought there was a maximum occupancy per site? The bathrooms were clean but honestly the showers were not cleaned as aggressively as at a Yogi Bear park we stayed at last year. The staff was mostly friendly however a couple of the kids working the front desk seemed indifferent. None of these issues are what I would consider a big deal but you expect top-notch service when you pay $66 +tax a night. Overall we had a great time, but there is room for some improvement. Nonetheless we will be happy to return. - Fdwt994

We arrived in late afternoon during constant rain. "New" entrance is a bit narrow turning off main road...not impossible but use care. Stopped at entry booth but no one there. began wandering through the park looking for the office. Better signage could be much more helpful. A Golf cart caught up and led us to our site (45) adjacent to the office. Efficient, friendly check-in. Site was plenty long and had a partial concrete pad. Utilities were good although wifi instructions a bit confusing. upon returning to the park after dark it was difficult to navigate due to almost total absence of lighting and poor signs. Office staff was very helpful the next day by allowing a late departure due to the need for a minor repair. It was early season here and I suspect everything wasn't yet fully up to speed. I was also informed that the park had been recently rearranged which may account for the poor signs/lights. Restrooms/showers/laundry were very clean. - whodat

Sites are gravel. Need newer picnic tables. Not on Lake Monroe. Beautiful pool. WIFI a little hard to log into because wasn't told that the info given was actually a Coupon Code to be used when logging in. Had to call WIFI company for help to login. Nice firepit on site. Would stay here again. - BPowell
