We were reserved in the 100 loop - (Site 111). The restrooms in this loop were sketchy. When we got to our site, we were only able to pull into our site by using the site across from us. Once we got into it, we discovered that the only electricity available was at either of the neighboring sites. Our cord needed to be three times longer, so we were in trouble, as the temperature was going to get down to 39 degrees that night. We left our site and went up to the check in. They sent up a DNR guy to help us. Meanwhile, the people in the site across from us arrived and had to use our site to pull in. The DNR saw all our problems and very nicely put us into the 500 loop. The 500 loop is flat and easy to get into and out of. The bathroom is clean and nice. The 100 loop was much more interesting and rustic, but we were just as happy to switch. All of the DNR people we spoke to were the nicest people. BUT there is no hot water in the showers. It would be better to install pay showers and get hot water.
There is a fishing lake next to the campground. It is unsuitable for swimming. There is a swimming beach a 10 minute drive away. The sites have nice trees for shade, but they are very close together. The campground caters to fishermen, so there are a lot of fishing boats stored at the campground, making pulling into your site difficult. There are many permanent/seasonal sites.
This is a wonderful campground. The sites are spacious and there is growth between sites for privacy. The only thing keeping it from a 10 is the bathroom. It was cleaned, but it needed renovating. I am glad I had enough water in my tank to shower. We look foward to going back because it is so beautiful. It is spread out, so this would be a good place to bring bikes for the whole family. Also, being by Lake Erie, it can get windy, so be prepared for that.
We stayed at the South Side. The flush toilets and showers are ALL on the North side campground. We had vault toilets. The walk between the two is about 1/2 mile over a levee/dam. There is a beach for people and another for dogs. We really enjoyed having a dog beach. The people beach is quite small for such a large lake. If we had stayed on the North side, we probably would have rated this higher.
We stayed here over July 4th weekend, three nights, on our Travel Trailer's maiden voyage. We had two adults, two children (15 and 11) a dog and a cat. We stayed at site 116, which is a full-hookup, pull-through site. It might be the largest site on the property. That is good, except it seemed inviting to the neighboring children to play catch at our site. No harm, but mildly annoying. Most sites seem to have shade. The hosts were VERY nice. The bathrooms near our site were clean, large and modern. That is where we showered. We were very happy with them. It was a very pleasant campground with activities for children and a nice pool. The camp store is very limited. People seemed to respect the quiet hours. I was a little put off that there was a charge to use the new water slide. The staff helped us reserve tubes at a local livery shop. That was really nice, as our phones didn't work out there. We would definitely stay again.
Please take note that Indigo Bluffs is really two RV parks right next to each other. They are run together from the same office. Indigo Bluffs RV Resort is for Motor Homes only. Indigo Bluffs RV Park (Rally Park on their web site) is for everyone. We stayed exclusively at the Rally Park. EVERY site was fully shaded. The employees showed us to our site and helped us back in. There is a very nice concrete pad on some sites. This is very helpful because it is very sandy. The restrooms were tidy, but we didn't use the showers as they were pay showers. This was a very quiet campground. Also note that the, beautiful, pool is closed to children from 12 pm to 2 pm daily. The only dumpsters were at the front of the park, but if you left your trash out in the morning, it was collected for you. They would also deliver your firewood. Some of the websites I visted showed this campground far to the East. It really is 3 miles East of Empire.
