We did a two night trip to view some fall foliage and we where not disappointed. The leaves where past their prime but with the temps in the 80's and sunny the remaining leaves showed us their beauty. The campground was not busy during the week and the camp store had 30% off every thing except ice and firewood. The park is very hilly and is great for hiking, biking and walking. You will have to pay or have a pass to enter the park for the first time. The only low spot was we where invaded by some kind bugs that looked like lady bugs, they seamed to like the warm exterior of the motorhome and then finding their way inside as the temps cooled, we spent the evenings removing them from the inside as we watched the Cubs/Indians games. We camped at Brown County State Park in a Motorhome.

As folks have said, the sites have electricity only, so load up water as you come in. Beautiful park and very well maintained. Bring your firewood with you as they prefer you leave limbs on the ground. Great little campstore, plenty of hiking trails, most of the rv spaces are small - lots of tent spaces and almost all of the camping spaces are on the main road. Lots of people here on the weekends - sold out and this was October 1st. The views are magnificent. Horse trails - and you can even use their horses, mountain bike trails, nature center, playgrounds and I hear there is a lake here but we didn't go visit it. Overall, we are very impressed with this park and will definitely come back - even though we have a 44 foot 5th wheel and most of the campsites will not accommodate us. We camped at Brown County State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Nashville is a quaint shoppers paradise with 4 blocks of all kinds of neat shops well worth visiting. If you're in an RV over 9 feet tall, plan on entering the park via the west entrance - as you will not fit into the north entrance. Local folks are friendly and welcome to campers as their main source of income appears to be tourist. Very friendly and we'll definitely be back.

We have come to Brown County SP many years. A bonus this year was the new shuttle bus between the campground and Nashville sponsored by the General Store. What a great idea for RVers in motor homes as the town is too far to walk and too hilly to bike from the campground! Camping here in the fall is great - even though it rained this year - we still loved bike riding, campfires, and the holiday lit campsites. With this new shuttle it is even better because a new rainy day option is lunch and browsing in the treasure that is Nashville! We camped at Brown County State Park in a Motorhome.

Great big park with lots of great mtn bike trails. We stayed in Buffalo Ridge and it was really convenient to the trails. Big sites, quiet at might. Just up the hill from tourist town of Nashville. There is a bus service to town and back if you don't want to drive. We camped at Brown County State Park in a Truck Camper.

Very nice State Park. Sites are spread out over several loops so the campground is much larger than it first appears. The site quality can vary a lot even in the same loop, so choose carefully when making on-line reservations. For instance, our site was level asphalt with a gravel patio area, but some nearby sites were thin, uneven gravel. The sites are electric only with several scattered water spigots available for filling tanks. This is a huge State Park with many hiking, biking, and horse trails throughout. The camp store was well supplied and had longer weekend hours. There are only two dump stations, so wait times on Sunday afternoons can be long. We camped at Brown County State Park in a Motorhome.

Though this campground does not have sewer or water hookups and is electric only, the location of the campsites more than makes up for lack of utilities. We had a lovely campsite under the trees with a short walk to the bathhouse which was clean though simple. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our time in the park, did some hiking and had a campfire. It is conveniently located to the arts town of Nashville where we enjoyed seeing the shops and eating a few meals. This is a beautiful state park that Indiana residents should be proud of. It reminded us of the Smoky Mountains. We stayed in the section called Taylor Ridge. It was beautiful and secluded. Lots were gravel, level and large with picnic table and fire ring. We camped at Brown County State Park in a Travel Trailer.

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.

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.

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 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.
