7 RV Parks near North Vernon, Indiana
Sep 2017 - $28.00
This is a nice little park in southern Indiana. There are only about 8 sites that can accommodate large rigs. But they are relatively spacious and nice with full hookups. The smaller sites are in the woods, and are also very nice for small to mid-sized trailers and tents. Almost no one was staying there the Sunday night we stayed. That made it very private. Bathrooms were dirty and we didn't use the showers because of it.
Park staff are only available Mon-Thurs. But we were able to book the site the next day by asking for a call-back on their voicemail. The campground and park access road is a little narrow and curvy for large rigs. So we disconnected and drove the car ahead to watch for traffic - maybe not totally necessary. - EVO_Bob

While $32 is an excessive amount of money, the rv sites were very close and the restrooms were very dirty. It is handy and just off Rt 50 for an overnight, but not good for much more. Access road coming down to CG is narrow and twisting. Even though the CG is posted as a "fee"area and not accessible to the general public, there was a lot of traffic, both foot and vehicular, through the CG area that did not appear to have a reason for being there. I would be hesitate to park and leave my unit there unattended although several people appeared to do so. - hartk

This is a County Park with only the first 8 sites as FHU pull thru's. The entire park has only 30 amp service & the rest of the sites after #8 are water/electric only. The park office & manager are not always open. Manager can be somewhere in the park at any given time. There is a camp host at site #9 but, if you're a first timer (like we were), you won't know this. We were lucky as we were just pulling into the parking lot, the camp host was just driving out, there was no one in the office. He escorted us to the entrance & campground. Also, DO NOT enter the park from State Route 7. The roadway from there into the camping area is very steep, narrow & winding. Enter from S. Gumm Street (residential), follow signs to the campground & site #9 to find the camp host (if you don't already know your site number). Once set up, you will find a very quiet, serine campground that is very well maintained. There is lots of playground space but, no pool or close swimming opportunities. Sprint cell service is "OK" and OTA Tv is available from the Louisville, Ky area & satellite reception is easy from the first 8 sites, the rest are in the woods. - rracer5

Great location and a huge amount of things to do. The Camp is gigantic. Lots of activities to enjoy. The only 2 downsides we found were the insufficient amount laundry machines and site levels. 2 washers and 2 dryers does not work for a campground with 308 sites. Please Put a full laundrymat in. Our first site was not level or close to level. We hunted around for one and moved. I recommend The management go thru each site and level it. Many spots were awkwardly sloped. - KodiTzu

First off if your rig is under 40 feet and you want shade and things for children to do then this is a great park. If you want satellite, want a space with out smoldering fires nearby, if you want the office staff to know what a big rig means, and some sun: then this is not the park for you.
The staff are students from a local college's hospitality program and unfortunately have no idea what the sites are like or what an RV is like. The first site they sent me to was unusable because of a tree limb in the middle of the site. The next site had no satellite service do to trees. I finally did find one that was long enough, no trees hanging down, and had full hook ups. Yes, there is a section in an open field but don't get off the road as that area is low and the ground is very soft and you may get stuck and I believe they are not full hook ups.
The number of smoldering fires with no one around is just amazing and if you have breathing issues you will not be happy. Some sites are full hook ups and some are not. We were here for a rally and I had come in early for the 4th. Just not what I look for in a campground so I would not stay here again. - peddy dick

Read the article in the FMCA magazine and came here for a tour of the Cummins plant. The article said to call to get a tour reservation but we never received a call back. Upon arrival, we were charged $2 per person to enter the facility! The money taker gave no directions to the office. A very nice gentleman on a golf cart asked us if we were lost and drove the wife to the office. (we had tried calling the office twice but no one answered) Once we found our spot, we went back to find out about the tours and were told that the FMCA magazine got the article wrong because they didn't arrange tours for less than 20 people. Oh well. The facility does look well maintained until you get to the campground. Sites are gravel with weeds growing in them and most of them are un level. It is heavily treed so satellite service won't happen. Power was good, water pressure good. For the price we paid, there were no sewer hookups. Roads are pretty narrow with speed bumps so be careful. Even going the posted 4mph speed limit the bumps shook the coach. - Mooney 201 Pilot

We've stayed here numerous times, and have never had an issue. Most sites are level and easy to get in to. Plenty of hiking, fishing and boating for the family. Plus, the beach has an area for swimming in the lake.
Electric only, so make sure your water pump is working properly! - Griffin226

On a positive note the lake is beautiful and the playgrounds are nice. However camp host did not keep dog on leash and it came barking and growling at my 3 year old. We had to pack up and move campsites because the 2nd day 4 families showed up and set up 5 tents in the same campsite beside us. There was no peace. The bath houses are old and need updated badly. The girl at the front gate was very courteous and the DNR officer that gave us a trail map was great, and very helpful. Probably will not return as there are too many other state parks in Indiana that are much nicer. - patch2361

Our first stay here and will definitely return. Very large sites, most if not all of the sites are level with some shade. Lots of water faucets around the campground for fresh water. Several nice trails on the property, large lake w/ boat rentals, playgrounds and on-site naturist providing fun activities for the kids. There is also a raptor rehabilitation center on-site that is open to the public. - zenasboy

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

Very nice state park campground. Spacious sites with gravel pads. Asphalt interior roads so nice for riding bikes. Electric only sites which is pretty typical for Indiana State Parks. Stayed for 3 nights during Madison's annual Chautauqua, which is a very nice arts and crafts festival. Several nice hiking trails within the park. Our site was very level, but not so true for some of the other sites. - Daryn

We arrived on a Sunday for a two night stay and had to pay $9.00 entrance fee after we paid about $30.00 a night on reserveamerica.com. The park is beautiful but were informed that the waterfalls weren't running since they need rain. Our site was level but next to a dumpster. We were also informed that we needed to fill our tanks with water since no water is at our site. The restroom/showers were very outdated, buggy, moldy and dirty. The showers and sinks had a system were you had to continually hit the button for water to come out. Shower had no hot or cold options. We rode our bikes to pool area and sign stated $3.00 per person. This park really nickels and dimes you everywhere. We liked the wildlife and enjoyed the fire flies in the evening. - JESUSisLovefl

This is a nice and spacious campground. The spots are not too close to each other. In the middle of the electric loop it is very open and there is not a ton of privacy. The perimeter sites are very nice and private. Sites 18-25; 34-35 are shaded and nice. Site 35 might be the most private spot in the park. Site 34 (ours) is also very nice and private. Also the tree on the left side (site #34 - as you look at the site) is now gone. Most of the non-electric (tent area) is mostly very private and may sites are shaded. Some of them are really nice, but would be tight for any trailer of size. - kettlebelle

This is a very nice, peaceful park that is the second largest in the Indiana state park system. It is well designed: the sites are all close to a shower/bathroom facility. Those facilities were clean and had good hot water. They seem to be strict about only one tow vehicle per site, but overflow lots available for extra vehicles. The area is beautiful in the fall, with many sites in the woods.
Site grades inside loop are flat. Grades on perimeter sites vary widely, from almost flat to quite steep. Flat ones often have picnic table and fire pit a little downhill and with a beautiful view. It's probably best to see one of these sites that you want to reserve before doing so, as the descriptions on the reservation site of the pad steepness are not too accurate. - GregAndKatie

Stayed for 4 nights while visiting family in the area. Always stay at this park when visiting in this location.
Stayed in "C" loop. The restrooms were clean, but they are starting to show their age. Don't like the gang shower, but there is a single available.
This is a pretty park which is well maintained. New picnic tables at our site. Fire wood is available from the campground host. We didn't buy wood therefore I don't know the cost. Hiking trails are close to the campground. There is a lake for kayaks or canoes. Camp store is close to the lake. Saw lots of horse trailers, and they can use trails designed for the horses.
I'm not used to paying an entrance fee to the park, and it's in addition to the camping fee. $9.00 entrance fee for out of state people.
Versailles is close if groceries or other supplies are needed. - Dennis D

Only visited A loop, but would not recommend that section for motorhome or trailers. Very tight narrow road with trees. Sites looked very small and difficult to back into. - Cicero Cachers

Called ahead and asked for a place by the pool and under some tree coverage and verified there was wifi access.I was assured we would receive all three amenities. We asked the person who met us if we indeed were parked under shade trees and were again told we were. We get to our spot which was right by the pool but there were no shade trees. I mean we could SEE them from where we were parked but none near us.The pool was completely unsuitable for all but the frogs that called it home with 10 inches of water.Major maintenance is required to get this thing usable. Falling apart and concrete missing, metal thrown in like it's being used for garbage.
We felt deceived but had already paid. After a couple weeks of some very strange traffic I called into the Sheriff's department when the Deputy on duty advised me he would probably not stay there with his family. We witnessed underage drinking as well as numerous other sketchy activities. I never felt personally threatened, but would advise caution for travelers with kids.
We tried the little restaurant and was not surprised to find the food was unremarkable-at best-but the service was awful.The woman seemed annoyed that we actually ordered off the menu rather than using the buffet.
The owner while seemingly nice lied to us regarding the 3 major things we requested over the phone. She informed me we had access to wifi but when we got there she would not relinquish the pw to us claiming she did not know it and the server at the restaurant told us nobody ever gets it.
I had a difficult time contacting the owner when calling (which really should have been my first clue)-I kept getting the "restaurant" and the owner was the only person who would discuss sites but was never around.
I would not go back as things are. This was clearly a very nice place at one point. If someone were to take some care and renovate the park and pool, maybe add a little security..I would consider giving it another shot.Until then-Beware. - Hart_Serenity

Need better direction signs inside the park. Had to ask 2 different people directions to office. Last one led me to location in his golf cart. Interior roads are gravel. Very friendly staff. Passing through and will stay here again if in the area. They have a restaurant on the premises. - RockenL
