Clean park with lots of semi perm campers, it was Saturday and as such the campground was crowded. Sites are a bit close, SWE all worked fine. Bathrooms are clean and in good repair. We have used this campground in the past as good stopping off point when heading South. - ANDYO1

We stayed one night on our way home. A few miles off the interstate, but still on a busy road. They put us right up front by the office, pull through site was handy. OK for 1 night. Several seasonal sites in the back. - dalebonnie

The park is a bit of a drive from the interstate but a quiet place to spend the night. There is a open field and pond on the site and it was peaceful and quiet while we were there. Internal roads are paved or gravel and sites are gravel. We drive a 45ft MH with a tow and were able to navigate to our site and out of the park with the car attached. We had hoped to leave the car attached overnight but because of the placement of the sewer connection we had to remove the car. The sewer is located at the very back of the site and one would need a very long sewer house to make this connection if the MH was pulled all the way to the front of the site in order to accommodate the car. The site has a bit of a slope front to back but we leveled using our air leveling system. I think one could also level with pods. We did not use the restroom facilities or the wifi so cannot comments on that. We would return here in a pinch but because of the distance from the highway, we might try to find something with different site configurations for convenience. - LvR

We arrived mid-week and the campground was nearly empty - only 4 other sites were filled. Our site F-26 was a pull-through at the end of the campground peninsula. Only electric hookups but water spigot was next to our site. We were on the water with easy access to the lake to launch our kayak. Our site was not level - we had to put blocks under the tires to get level. The staff are questionable - they didn't seem to know the answers to any questions we asked. The campground was about 75% full over the weekend - mainly tents. The folks who came into F27 next to us pitched their tent very close to our fire ring but that was the closest level spot to their angled driveway. Ruined our view of the lake. There was a guy fishing near us wearing a holster and gun - kinda scary. I quess it is legal in IN. We stayed 5 nights and would stay here again. - DKL1219

Beautiful, treed sites. There are a few 50 amp sites, and a few sites barely suitable for big rigs. Most of the sites are short and not level enough for a motorhome. The campground loop is a dead end and we had to unhook the toad to go back. You'll do well keeping your interaction with "management" to a minimum. We called 3 hrs ahead and were told sites are first come first served. Not true. On arrival we were charged $7 to find a site, but I waited 10 min in the rain while the ranger marked a map with a black pen to show sites that had been reserved that day and told me that these were reserved. That map was the only one in existence and she suggested I take a photo with my cell phone so I would not take a reserved site. I did so, but the sites are poorly marked. BTW, they could not spare a map for me to take. Anyway, that process did not work for me and we opted for Walmart. At the exit, the ranger had to call a supervisor in order to get permission to refund the $7 I had paid to enter. Do not enter the park when it is raining, you have to stand outside, under the dripping roof eave while waiting for the ranger to mark up the map that shows reserved sites. She had no clue as to which sites were pull-throughs and which were long enough in order to take a 38' motorhome. - rebane

Very nice park near Fuzzy Zoeller's Covered Bridge GC. We reserved a 50 amp site. There are only a few. We were there mid-week and there were plenty of 30 amp sites to choose from too. There are a few pull thrus also. Shower rooms were very good. Pleasant shaded back in sites are in separate sections for horse campers and regular folks. Good looking beach in the park. I think they get lots of day traffic there. We'll stay again. - exceltraveler

LOVE, LOVE this campground! Very clean and well maintained campground. Bathhouses were very clean and shower stalls were very large. Campground host was very courteous and helpful with firewood. We stayed in site 218, which was one of the 90 degree angle sites and can see where it could be difficult especially with large campers and tow vehicles. Large sites, most have some shade afternoon or morning. Great lake with beach access. No Wi-Fi or Internet service at all, however with my iPhone with Verizon service was able to make phone calls and texts. Friend with iPhone with AT&T service had Internet and phone and text. But friend with Android with Verizon wasn't able to get anything including calls and/or texts. - CmcDowell

This is a good park for relaxing, spending time at the beach, biking, swimming (lake), and fishing. Facilities are clean. Store is small and close to lake. A couple of sites are sharp 90 degree turns which made it hard for this new RVer (2nd time) to park. Thankfully a kind neighbor assisted. Staff are courteous and generous with firewood. We have already made reservations to return. - tincansailor

This is one of our favorite state campgrounds. They have both full hookup sites and electric-only sites. We stayed in the full hookup area. Sites have both paved parking and living areas. The lake-side sites are in the electric-only area and are nice, albeit busy. The restrooms/showers are clean and relatively in good repair. Most sites are nicely shaded. Be sure to visit the three-span covered bridge that is near Medora within five miles of the campground. This is the third time we have stayed here and we will return again. - RXA-ADM

Really nice for a state park. Full hook ups. Like most state parks, they use that stupid reservation system that makes all sites seem equal, when they are not. We were in 157, which I highly recommend for 45 ft. Motorhome. This site did not have alot of shade, but we picked it for that reason. We needed our satellite to work well! Not alot in the immediate area, but Walmart not too far away. Another reviewer suggested site 159, but it was really short. Even though it is July, there was hardly anyone here! - Tbillingsley

Spacious, well maintained sites with level pads and conveniently located hookups. Well off the main road so things are nice and quiet. No issues with getting a DirecTV signal from our site. Wireless wasn't offered by the park but our Verizon signal was strong and steady for both voice and data.
The rules state one vehicle per site and, boy, they aren't kidding about it. I witnessed the security patrols ask two different families to move their extra vehicles, which was appreciated.
One thing to note if you happen to be coming in later in the evening: Be mindful of the signs directing you to the campground area as the site map is just that - a site map only. We came in at dusk, not knowing that and drove right past the campground area as the signs are tastefully small. Once you get past the turn for the campground the road gets narrower and uncomfortably winding so pay attention!
If you're coming in from Louisville, it might be better to head up past the I-265 exit and get off at Exit 9 on I-65. There are newly installed roundabouts at the Port of Indiana exit on I-265 headed towards the campground that were somewhat interesting in a 35' rig with toad. - PirateMonkey

I LOVE this campground. Full hookups, many sites are quite private. Spent about 10 days here, and weekends were more popular--but there were still many empty spots. Weekdays? It was just me and a few others. Really quiet, peaceful, interesting park. Camp hosts were very friendly.
I have a 35 foot travel trailer and did happen to pick a site that was a bit tough to back into due to the electric grid across from it. However, I got into it and loved my spot for it's amazing privacy. Literally couldn't see the people next to me, if any had been there, nor the people behind at all, as they are separated from the rest by very large expanse as well as lots of foliage. If you were to pick an electric only site, you'd have even more privacy as I only saw like 3 or 4 of those used at all. I'll definitely be coming back to this campground. - drdit92

Most of the sites are well spaced and fairly level. Interior roads are asphalt and easy to navigate, with packed gravel pads. Nice fire ring with a very usable grate for cooking. The campground was completely full but still seemed pretty quiet. AT&T signal was weak, but generally usable at our site. Only drawbacks of the park are no camp store and no water hookups. Historic downtown Madison is a short 5 minute drive. - Daryn

Flat, level sites. Bathrooms in electric were surprisingly clean during Labor Day weekend. Very few water hookups at bath houses and was afraid hose wouldn't reach to fill trailer, but it did. Playgrounds could use a bit more equipment. No camp store, only firewood sales at gate. Best sites are 24, 40, 9, 11. If with a group, consider 54/55, 87/88 or 69/70. - Cicero Cachers

The restrooms and showers in the main electric loop campground are a bit dated, and feel dirty. Since they do not have water at each site, you are almost forced to use the restrooms for at least showers, or you'll be spending a lot of time filling up your freshwater tank. However, if you feel like walking over to the non-electric loop, they have a very new and modern bathhouse there. It seems much cleaner than the bathhouses in the electric loop. The campground is very clean, people are friendly, and they are not obnoxious about patrolling the campground, they are around, but not overbearing. AT&T cell service is pretty good around the park. Don't forget that IN state parks charge $7.00 to enter the park no matter if your camping there or not. The pool cost $3.00 per person and is open from noon to 6:00 daily. No 50 amp service, and if you have a taller rig, be aware that the trees are mature and you may have an issue fitting into some of the sites. - jmcmanama

This is a local park with a majority of Water/Electric sites but have 10 "Full" Hook-up sites. Very Clean park, with 3 playgrounds for kids. The only downside is that the Restrooms are NOT heated or air conditioned. There is a "Camp Host" on site. Water is turned off in Nov. Reservations can be made in advance. They also give discounts to Coast to Coast members. - md_procouple

While there are sites on the north side of the one campground road, the sites on the river side are by far the most popular. The Ohio River is right outside your rear window (or if you pull a motor home in nose first, it's right outside your front window). The campsites, themselves, are way too close together putting your neighbors on either side just a few steps away. If there's any redeeming point about the spacing it's that each site is at a pretty hard angle making your "front" yard also your neighbor's "back" yard. If everyone just uses their front yard there's enough room for you to use the picnic table and set out some lawn chairs to watch the river. However, if your neighbor in a motorhome happens to want to pull in nose first that scheme is messed up and you end up with the front door of their RV matching up with the front door of yours - creating a shared front yard. On the other hand, the utility hookups actually support this approach because the water/electric hookups are on every other site. If you get an even numbered site they are on the normal, driver's side of the rig (when backing in). Otherwise, you either pull in nose first or you have to pass the hose/electric under the camper. There are no sewer hookups in the campground, but there is a dump station. The campground has for-pay WiFi. We didn't use it as our Verizon signal was a strong 4G. Also satellite TV was easy to get - after all you are basically aiming it out over the river and there are no trees in play. The bathrooms are old and worn but reasonably clean and in working condition. Because of the public nature of the campground (right along a city street) you pay a $5 deposit to get a bathroom key. The number of sites is limited so, if you are coming during the busy time of the year I strongly suggest you call ahead for reservations - especially if you want a riverside spot. - nazpaz

Check-in very smooth. Friendly campground host. Sites VERY tight! Mostly level pads. $5.00 key deposit for shower/restrooms, refundable upon check-out. Clean but peeling paint. Ok for shower, plenty of pressure and hot water. Additional fee for Wi-Fi. $1day/$5week. Signal for Wi-Fi did not reach site, but short walk to Gazebo for excellent signal. Campground was at capacity during our stay. With that getting into some spots could prove to be difficult with awnings. The views of the river are second to none. Watching the river traffic was a great way to relax from our trip into Downtown Madison. Just a short drive away. We would stay here again. - Us2OnTheRoad

The rating is based on the view and surrounding beauty - Madison is a great little town. CG sites are narrow, back-in only (not pull-throughs listed on RVParkReviews), electrical and water (you will need long hoses), and there is a dump station. Paved site to park on; slight inclines. Bathrooms are older with peeling paint but okay for a shower. Host is very helpful. If you are energetic, you can walk into town. Vaughn Street is blocked due to construction on the bridge so you will need to drive on 56 to the far east side of town (past the bridge) and then turn right on Ferry St. The CG is at the bottom of the hill, on the left, next to the river. We would definitely camp here again. FYI: there is a good laundry facility on Main St, west end of town. - Traveler_2011

This is a mobile home park that is converting some spaces to RV. The site conversions are not exactly RV friendly. Narrow concrete strips for the wheels, the jacks are on soft ground and the sewer is located under the RV. The streets have many speed bumps, many of the remaining mobiles homes should be removed and it is very noisy. There is constant noise from I-65, train horns several times a day and night, and the occasional plane traffic; not a peaceful location. We stayed here for 3 months while working for Amazon; the cost of the site was paid for by Amazon. This may develop into an acceptable RV park in a few years but it will always be noisy. The park is on the northern outskirts of Clarksville so shopping and other services are a few miles away.
The sites are level with broken concrete patios and grass areas. No tables or fire rings. 50 amp electrical.
The water is good quality city service but use a filter. The pressure fluctuates, especially in the morning.
There is no park provided cable or wifi. Service may be obtained from Time Warner. Typical OTA channels.
There is no laundry, pool, showers, park activities, etc. The staff is helpful, when asked, but otherwise they are rarely seen.
A mailbox can be purchased from USPS. UPS and FedEx deliver here, but have difficulties locating Lakeview Dr.
We will probably not be stay again as we have no desire to work for Jeffersonville Amazon (SDF8) again. - Wiyndog

The park is not a resort. They do not claim it to be and is essentially an unpaved section of land that has trees and parking spots somewhat close together, but not as bad as some parks that are on less property. Access to our parking spot was good (space #6, pull through), and was a great stop for an overnight stay and a visit to Louisville. Power and water were fine. Plenty of shopping (as in huge) nearby with a Walmart just about in the park backyard on the south side. The office staff was great/accomodating and even provided a discount that wasn't asked for. I believe the age of the motorhome/trailer is a guideline, as it appears they just don't want deteriorated property that would cause problems. My bus conversion is 40+ years old, but it doesn't have a deteriorated appearance. I would return to the park. - wolffden

The park hosts were very nice. Old park too close to other campers. Could not park next to my trailer. Stepping out my door requires going over another site's dump and water connections as they were under my awning. Muddy roads, Internet was a joke if it worked, bathrooms were clean but falling apart. The best thing was the close shopping and restaurants and that I do not have to return. I would rather park in the woods at a NPS or state park and provide my own amenities. - Claybuster

We have stayed at this campground many times over the last 10 years. We knew we were staying in a parking lot surrounded by a little grass and some trees, but it was close to friends and family. Now we are no longer allowed to stay here because our MH is over 10 years old. This is not an RV resort - it is a parking lot for RV's. Lot spacing is very close with some shade. Site surfaces are gravel. - Peri
