This park is beautiful. Main bath house is spotless and modern. DNR staff here are Top Shelf. Lodge on sight with awesome restaurant and water park. Big swimming pool. Hiking trails for all ages and skills. Best state park in Indiana in my opinion. We camped at Brown County State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This park is beautiful! There are overlooks for watching the sunset, a lodge with excellent food and coffee for those meals you don't feel like cooking and it is very close to all the shops in Nashville, IN. We went horseback riding one day in the park and that was something fun to do. This park just has a whole lot to offer and the restaurants and shops in downtown Brown County/Nashville are outstanding. There are flea markets near by too for those looking for something to do. We had been here before and will return again soon! We camped at Brown County State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a beautiful, huge, hilly, treed park. We were in the campground (there are 3) farthest from the front entrance. It was actually 6 miles from the entrance, that's how big the park is! Just lovely! There is a gigantic pool (nominal fee) and a lodge with a casual restaurant. Downtown Nashville (Ind.) is a very fun, artsy place to visit. It's convenient if you are visiting Bean Blossom (10 miles) for one of their music festivals. For a State Park, it's a 10. For an RV'er like we are, it's an 8, only because they don't have full hook ups, cable or internet. Even so, we would definitely stay there again. It would be absolutely beautiful in the fall. We camped at Brown County State Park in a Motorhome.

Have a 45' RV and stayed at Buffalo Ridge. The initial site we reserved had low hanging branches. Fortunately they were able to relocate us to another site. Many of the 45'+ sites definitely have his condition. You may want to look at site before driving to. Buffalo Ridge is the best option for a taller rig. I would suggest sites 18, 19, 24 and 42. Anyway, the campground is beautiful and well taken care of. The staff was excellent. A drive into downtown Nashville to shop is well worth the time. Plan on returning again. We camped at Brown County State Park in a Motorhome.

Nice park. The big disadvantage for me was lack of water hookups and no 50 amp hookups. Some loops would be very tight for a large motorhome. It is a very busy park and a beautiful place to visit. We camped at Brown County State Park in a Motorhome.

We camp here once a year, this time the final camping weekend of the season. The campground had officially moved to winter season operation the weekend before, but warm temperatures brought out the campers for this weekend. The check-in staff was a bit overwhelmed with the walk-ups, luckily we had a reservation. Given the number of campers and only one rest room remaining open, it was clean throughout the stay, a noted reason we stay here yearly. The hiking and mountain bike trails are awesome. The overall beauty of the park is tremendous. It is a wonderful weekend getaway from the city. We camped at Brown County State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This was our second stay at Brown County SP. We stay here to take advantage of the fantasic mountain bike trails within the park. The campground has nice size sites and clean bathrooms/showers. We will stay here again if visiting the area. We camped at Brown County State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is the second time we have stayed here and loved every minute. Stayed in the Buffalo Ridge loop that is closest to the entrance in site 86 that was shaded and had plenty of room to back our 40ft RV into the spot. Hiking trails, fishing, very large swimming pool. Cell service is spotty but the setting is fantastic. We camped at Brown County State Park in a Motorhome.

Brown County is an old campground, designed for smaller TTs and tent campers. Our site was at the far end of the Taylor Ridge area on Tuliptree Road, about 7 miles from the park entrance. The cul-de-sacs and back-in sites were just large enough for our 36' FW to manuever. But the DNR staff was very helpful getting us a site we could get into. No parking on the grass, so it all has to fit on the pad. Most of the sites are carved out between trees, we had room for the slide outs, but a large tree almost blocked the steps, didn't need the awning with all the shade anyway. Our area was very quiet, but the sites alongside the road leading back to it saw traffic during the day. Plenty of rustic activities with hiking, biking, horseback riding, etc., great for getting back to nature. We camped at Brown County State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

They have several campgrounds; I stayed in Buffalo Ridge. Sites are well spaced and vary in size from small to large enough for any rig. Roads were a bit narrow necessitating larger rigs to sometimes drive on the grass to maneuver. The campground is grass with numerous trees, but it's not enough for much shade. Roads and some sites are paved; other sites are gravel. Sites have electric only. Mine only had 30 amp. Restrooms were clean and functional, however, shower water was lukewarm and the rooms had no heat. The park has extensive trail networks for equestrians, hikers, and mountain biking. We camped at Brown County State Park in a Travel Trailer.

No sewer, no water, cellphone communications sparse, sites are heavily wooded, small, and not level. There is cellphone communications and Wi-Fi available 5 miles away at the Abe Martin Lodge. Dump station was 2 miles from our site. An additional dump station should added for the large number of sites that they have. Nearest facilities are in Nashville, IN, 9 miles away.

Before hauling our kids and camper here, we called TWICE to ask if campers were allowed to use indoor water park at the lodge. We were told yes TWICE and both times were told the cost was the same as the outdoor pool. When we arrived we were told the admission was $15 a person: all ages. We have 5 children, so that was NOT an option to swim for $90 a day (for the 7 of us). Do your homework on the sites as well. Many were incredibly NOT level, and very treed. We got our camper in the site, but were unsure we'd ever get it out. The only good thing about staying here was the time we spent at the very hospitable Gatesville General Store and the owner. She made breakfast for our large clan before we spent the day panning for gold. We camped at Brown County State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Great state park with lots to do. Horseback riding, plenty of hiking trails, fire tower, outstanding mountain bike trails. Shopping in Nashville nearby. We camped here over the 4th of July weekend, and it was packed. The shower houses were kept very clean despite the crowds. Great raptor program at the lodge. The pool is a long drive from the campground. Beware, there is only ONE dump station for all 429 campsites. The line for the dump station was hours long Sunday afternoon. Glad we pulled out on a weekday. We will be back! We camped at Brown County State Park in a Travel Trailer.

DNR staff a bit standoffish at check in-all business and no personality. Park great and plenty of shade. 30 amp, gravel sites w/some blacktop. Direct TV access no problem. Showers too hot Tuesday but fine Wednesday. No set cleaning time on showers in fact request to allow child to use bathroom before cleaning started and was told come back in 1/2 hour. This is someone who needs another job. Most sites too short for big rig so be aware. Great facility but probably needs a shake up at the top to reenergize folks to realize what customer service is. Park not 25% full on our visit. On Site 22 and shady and ok for 36' 5th wheel. Did not find any outstanding places to eat in short stay. We camped at Brown County State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed in eastern part of the Buffalo Ridge loop. This loop appeared best suited for RVs and groups. The other loops were nice, but heavily wooded, so leveling appeared difficult. The shower house was modern and very clean. Beautiful hiking paths and very large pool (but located outside the campground). Staff was friendly. We camped at Brown County State Park in a Travel Trailer.
