6 Parks near New Harmony, Indiana
Jul 2016 - $25.00
The park itself is beautiful and nice. However, we were there on Saturday night and a group down from us were LOUD until after 2 am. Nothing was said or done about this. We saw 2 people working the entire park and no one came around to check things until very early in the morning which woke everyone up. The toilets were dirty. The shower house was clean except after paying $25 for an electric site (all they offer), you would hope for a hot shower. Not the case. It was barely warm on the men and women's side. We were the only campers on Sunday night and Monday morning we still had the same cold water to shower in. This told us it wasn't a case of overuse, just a case of not having any hot water. If you pay this much, the least they could do is have decently hot water. Also, don't plan on eating in the town. We couldn't get waited on, and ended up driving to KT's Fire Grill in Wadesville for a nice dinner and really good service. - Happy Campers from IN

Very nice state park. Not close to much except touristy town of New Harmony. Gas available within 6 miles, but groceries and other items you have to travel at least 20 miles. Nightly rate reflects $25.00 plus one half of $9.00 out of state entry fee. Roads well paved, sites clean and fairly spacious. Wabash river overflowing while we stayed there, but campground remained open. - JAYFLIGHTRV

Absolutely fantastic park. Generally big sites. Most are well shaded with a few in the sun. Big pool for $2 per person. Lots of trails. Very clean/well kept bathrooms and showers. Showers were plenty hot, too. We will camp here again, no doubt. - cwooz

Traveling from So. Calif, we have stayed at the park several times. Full Hook-ups, 50 amp. Level Concrete pads, most sites are shaded, some open to the south for satellite. Free internet, be sure to get voucher number from park attendant also free fire wood. Several picnicking sites which are covered with tables. The trees are kept trimmed as to keep from hitting larger RVs. We stayed here in a Class "A" 40 motor-home. NO PROBLEMS. - Roy Fleming

This campground has many positive features and a few negative ones. It is situated on a wooded hill. Most sites are good size and shady. All are full hookup and have concrete parking pads. The park is in the country so it is generally quiet. The hookups work well except that the water has an off taste even with a water filter (we ended up buying drinking water). At $16 per night it is a bargain. The bathrooms are quite old but everything seems to work well and the showers are good size. Because of the age it is hard to tell how clean the bathrooms are, but they are reasonably okay and certainly not overly used since everyone has full hookups. New this year is WiFi which works okay if you are close enough to the antennas (located at the bathhouse) but not so great if you are not. TV reception (Evansville) was okay as was AT&T cell phone reception. They generally do not take reservations. When we were there on an early May weekend they were about 2/3 full. It seems like most campers were from relatively local areas. Getting to the campground is somewhat a challenge especially if it is your first time here. All roads are narrow and pretty rough. We came through Carmi. There are other routes but one is just as difficult as another. Note that when the road inside the park branches, take the right hand branch next to the pond to get to the campground - the left branch goes to the picnic area. We would stay here again when we want to be in this area. - RXA-ADM

Great city park campground in a very quiet setting. Large trees for shade are no problem for big rvs, they have been pruned. Hiking trails and clean restrooms. Picnic table and fire pit at each site. Free firewood provided by staff from downed trees in the park. Full hookups all for $16. We camped in a 5th wheel. - Charlie M.

I was very disappointed in this campground. We arrived to find that the waterfall was broken. The arcade games were not operational. We decided immediately to stay only one night. The manager seemed to be watching, and complaining about everything we did. Everything from having our 4 pound dog with us to having our golf cart there. He also rudely informed us that the campground was mainly used for construction workers who camp there by the week or month. In my opinion, they should state that on their website, instead of listing it as a peaceful, family campground. There was also a ditch full of stagnate water right behind our campsite. We will not return! - KellyF

We make frequent trips to Evansville to visit family and on this last trip we discovered Burdette Park. We were very pleasantly surprised. The pros? 1) Very close to everything you could possibly need but far enough away to be in the country, 2) Roads are paved nicely, 3) 20,30 & 50 amp service at each spot, 4) paved sites, 5) very quiet, 6) plenty of room between sites, 7) the manager is the absolute best, 8) Water park, BMX park, trails, fun park on premises, 9) Bath house is very nice, 10) wooded, 11) very private. Cons? 1) landscaping could be better, 2) roads around campers sites very narrow.
Picnic tables are very old and brittle. Landscaping was sort of ragged but grass was cut. No problems with electric at all. Some sites have sewer but there's a very nice dump station at the entrance.
There is a great pizza place within a mile that delivers and the water park is huge and beautiful...very inviting. We really loved our stay here. Very few mosquitoes so that was a definite plus. Also, camping park is small so getting a site could prove difficult in the summer. We will be staying here quite often...it's our new home away from home. - John_Merrell 1986

Have to go to Evansville for work periodically, and decided to bring trailer. Burdette Park was one of very few campgrounds close enough to my work. I had problems getting to park--roads are tight. Once there, no one was at campground entrance to check in with--I'd called and made reservations. Was told to find someone in Site 17. Once I did, she said to park in any of the sites in the first two rows--all were just water and electric. The full hookup sites are taken up with what seems like more seasonal or monthly campers. It's a bit tight going past them, as a lot of them have large trucks parked near the road.
All sites are pull-through. Had 50 amp for my site. Water up a slight hill to share with site above me. Some tent campers in primitive sites. Lots of large fifth wheels and several big motorhomes there as well.
Pretty quiet at night. Lots of crickets and frogs. Can hear trains through the night, as there are tracks nearby. Some noise in morning as people get up and go to work. I spent 4 nights there. Never used shower house, so no idea what it's like. Dump station on exit seems very tight, so didn't try it.
One odd thing, was that I'd never paid. So, morning of my departure, I had to hunt down the woman in Site 17. She said to use a credit card I'd have to go to main building of park--but I was already hooked up and had pulled out of site. I ended up giving her some cash--what I had, and certainly not enough for entire stay. She was very nonchalant about the whole transaction. - drdit92

Just travelling through, but did we enjoy our one night's stay here!
Large, level places on a forested terrace camping, nice & easy hikes, good facilities and friendly staff make this a great campsite. - Eisenga

For the money, we expected more in the way of amenities, including a level site. Finding where to pay was a problem as well, and the office had to be open. No hosts on site. On the good side, there was lots of room for walking, bike riding, and flying the model airplanes. - BeagleMama

There are not many choices in the area and we arrive at this campground late. We could not find the RV park office to check in. A permanent camper helped us locate a campsite. The entire park is gravel. RVs were tight side by side. There was an area with trees, our campsite was bare. We heard the nearby train horn all through the night. The next morning we had to search for the RV park office; it is not conveniently located. We had two RVs; one was a motorhome. - sc river ratz

Stayed in a newer section. Hookups oddly spaced. Site not level. Train crossing one block away and they run all night long -- blowing horns and rumbling! After hours check in staff friendly. Would not stay again. - E&E

There are not very many campgrounds/RV parks in this area close to I-64. We were travelling on a weekend and all the county and state parks in the area were full. This campground does not take reservations and is strictly first come first serve. It is an old campground that from the building construction may have been a KOA. The mini golf and play ground have seen better days. Most of the sites were grass, but some appeared to have a gravel base in the past. The grounds were clean and the grass mowed. The attendant was friendly and very helpful. The full hookup sites appeared to be fairly level side to side. Most of the water and electric sites were not. Many of the sites were too short for us to stay hooked up at 56' in length. Most of the full hookup sites were occupied by long term stays working in the area. Our water and electric site had a 30 amp RV receptacle but only a 25 amp breaker. The $40.00 a night was high for an overnight but did include what appeared to be a 10% lodging/sales tax tax. - trailertraveler
