Check in was quick & escort to site was kind enough to assist with backing & leveling our TT. Our site was full hookup with firepit & picnic table. Site was gravel pad, not much grass around, just gravel covered by leaves. Roads were dusty as no one seemed to observe the 5mph speed signs. Nice enough walking "trail" for the dogs that led to the small "dog park". We made do tossing a ball cross corner for our lab & shepherd to run & play. Was nice to have a place to turn them loose for a bit. This was the only location that poop bags/trash can were available. There were no other trash cans but dumpster at entrance to campground. Showers/bathroom nearest site were great combo "suites" with toilet, sink, shower w/removable shower head & baby changing table. Bath/shower/laundry near office were good & clean too. Virtually no wifi strength the further from the office your site sits. All sites have cable plugs but we didn't use. - DeanaN3Dogs

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

I think our rate included the daily fee, but I am not really sure. The roads are hilly and winding, which makes for a very nice drive in the park. We stayed at Buffalo Ridge campground, which was the only one open. The campground is in a completely open area, surrounded by woods, so the outside sites back up to trees. The sites are fairly close together, so it could be noisy if it were busy, I suspect. The bath/shower house seems new and is very clean. Water got warm enough to shower! Apparently this is a mountain bike destination, but there seem to be few hiking trails, which is why I only give it 4 stars. As others have said, don't come in the north entrance, due to the covered bridge low clearance. A nice drive into Nashville, where there are lots of shops and a brewpub. - ALbums

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

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

Huge state park located on Monroe Lake about 10 miles SE of Bloomington. Interior roads are in need of repair and maneuvering can be tricky as cars, trucks and boats encroach into the campground roads from sites. This is a very popular boating/fishing area and the crowded campground reflects this. Price paid does not reflect the additional $9 entrance fee we paid at the gate.
Many sites were very close together but maybe it appeared that way due to all the vehicles parked in/around them. Our 30A, electric only site was level, nicely wooded and roomy with a paved pad, concrete patio, picnic table and fire ring. We did have some "lake views" through the trees. All sites are electric only but there is a dump station near the campground entrance/exit. We had no OTA TV and no Verizon service.
The bath/showerhouses were typical concrete block but were relatively clean (except for some spider webs in corners). There were also some pit toilets scattered about as well. There's a playground, marina with boat rentals and also a campstore that has groceries as well as camping/fishing items. - leaf peeper

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

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

Not recommended for an overnight stay. - HHitch

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 for a one night stop. We had to come in late and they were a big help. - thesilverback

OK for a one night stopover. About 1.5 miles off the interstate. Many long term campers, but for a private campground, it was relatively clean. Sites are very crowded. Bathroom was surprisingly clean. We had one of the few sewer sites, but noticed the dump station was very poor: a sewer connection in the middle of the exit road.
Staff was "bothered" that we were there. WiFi didn't work. Verizon coverage here=5/5. I don't think we will be back; there are other campgrounds in the area. - Bama Camper

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

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

Great tiny park. RVparking is level, hard surface with water and electricity up to 50 Amps. Electric post looked new. Water is below ground but easy to hook up. Dump station and port-a-potties nearby in park. Picnic tables. Backs to River. Big field, basketball courts, playground equipment in good condition. This is a real gem. About 10 minutes off of I-65. Registration at park service building 3 miles away. - Gurleymon

PROS: $15/night, electric and water sites, dump station, river, playground, short walk to town. Cops patrol the site three times per night. The only highlight of the town was Not Just Popcorn, a global seller of 400+ flavored popcorns. CONS: High crime rate. Deliberately parked us next to a derelict RV, who had visitors wielding a sword and axes, cigarette smoke smell from the derelict RV, AC running 24x7. Smelled like garbage. I initially parked one space over from the derelict RV, to put some much needed space between us and the smell, the constantly running AC and the eyesore, but was told to move to the next site. We reluctantly complied. Edinburgh had many neglected buildings. Neighbor said there was drug activity about 200 ft from RV campsite. Had to clean up trash around our site. Many cigarette butts around the sites. No river walk. Bike path was only .1 miles...unusable. - tdrager

This is a very small city park with zero frills. It is not convenient to I-65 and you go through some small streets to approach the park. Not much of anything is nearby; mostly a depressed area in a very old neighborhood. The rig next door appeared to be dumping sewage on the ground very close to the fresh water hook up which I reported to the park office. The dump site had dried tissue spread across the parking area and who know what else was mixed in with that stuff which I also reported to the park office. This could be a very nice park but we didn't feel safe outside after dark; some long term/permanent campers who were not friendly at all. One pro is the office staff was nice and helpful however the office is several blocks away from the park and is difficult to get your rig into the park office lot. Stay here is you have no other options. But if you do stay, call ahead and ask if you can park your rig then come to the office for registration in your tow vehicle. - Paya
