Office staff very friendly and helpful. Park is clean and well maintained. Sites are easy to get into. We had a 30 amp pull through site that was long enough to accept our motor home and toad without disconnecting. Lots of restaurants to choose from in Scottsburg just two miles from RV park. - Herb Richards

Just a few minor negatives- the grounds crew could've been friendlier. A smile and nod go a long way.
-there are ALOT of signs saying what you can't do. It's a little depressing
-there charge for EVERYTHING, even mini golf
Positives - the bathrooms/shower houses were super clean
- quiet time was quiet
- when they mowed around the RVs, they were careful not to throw grass on your rv and vehicle. - Rolando

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

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

Lot was very big and clean. We had full hookup. Every spot had shade but trimmed so the camper was not harmed. Each site had two picnic tables. The lake was beautiful and very peaceful. Overall a very relaxing trip. - Tlead4

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

We stayed at their park for 5 nights, the last weekend of October was considered a holiday and the fee was 44 per night for W/S/E 50 amp, the price dropped to 33 weekdays , the site was spacious for our 43 foot RV, all sites are paved, the park was very quite and peaceful, They have approximately 5 hiking trails ranging from one to approx 2 1/2 miles, its a very nice park to walk, hike or bike, have a campfire, I believe most site are electric only, with water spickets along the road ways, dump stations on the way out of the park, we were able to get our satellite and I suspect most sites can ???but certainly not all, perhaps 60% can.
They shut off the water and close most of the park Nov 3 but they are open all year. - Camping USA

There is a daily vehicle fee. During our stay (not on a weekend), the guard booths were not manned and we were never asked to pay. Other reviewers do a good job of describing this absolutely wonderful state park. I will focus on a few other topics. First - We were there mid-October and, while the park was somewhat empty, nearly all full h/u sites were occupied. In fact, we had to leave on Friday morning because all full h/u sites were reserved for the weekend. Second - we didn't see any snakes or experience any "bug problems". We had lots of rain and water drained well at our site and around the park. Third - if you're coming in from I-65 via "Old Indiana 160", it's a typical two lane country road complete with curves and whoop-de-dos. The speed limit seems high relative to the road. Take your time. There isn't much traffic. Safety first. Last - we were in Site #185. It was big, had a hedge for privacy on our front door side and we were able to get a DirecTV signal. However, our windshield looked across the road directly at a utility panel maybe 6' high x 4' wide. There's enough beauty around that it doesn't make a difference but, if we go back, we'd select another site if available. Verizon cell and Sprint Mifi worked well. The CG does not offer wifi. Hook-ups worked well. Water pressure was fine. We loved our time here, wished we could have stayed longer and would certainly stay here again. - GottaGoNow

The sites here are nice and large, typical of most state parks we've stayed in. The park appears very clean, groomed, and maintained. It's nice to find full hookups at a state park, and for a reasonable fee. There's also a $9 park entry fee, but fortunately that was a one-time charge and not a daily charge like most other parks. Sites are paved (asphalt) and fairly level, with picnic table and fire ring, and grass lawns. Each campground loop has a nice buffer of trees around each side, but there are few trees on or between sites, so there's not much privacy. There a plenty of hiking trails in the state park, including one from the campground, and one that visits the remains of the Rose Island amusement park that was destroyed in a flood 80 years ago. There's no WiFi, but our Verizon and AT&T both worked well. Since we had full hookups we didn't check out the bath houses at all and can't report on them. We'd return here. - LifeRebooted

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

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

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

Clean, easy to get in/out park. Hosts very friendly and helpful. Plenty of room for our 5th wheel and truck. - dave398rls

Out site was level. Utilities all worked fine. Wi-Fi was free and worked well
Office staff friendly and helpful. No ice so if you need ice Wal-Mart/Sams was a couple of blocks away. - hotpepperkid99

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
