We stayed in the 500 loop again. Fewer sites in this small loop so the restrooms stay cleaner. There was a NO hot water Saturday. But otherwise a great trip. We enjoyed the bike trail and nature center.
Very new campground with lots of large flat sites, easy to pull in and out. Half of the campground is full hookup (unheard of for Indiana State Parks) and half is electric. Comfort station in the center of electric only loop. Very new and clean. There won't be any shade for about 20 years. Great place to camp for Purdue football games. We'll be back next year.
We enjoyed a long weekend at Ouabache. There had been some heavy rain lately and several of the sites had standing water or thick mud so chose carefully. That being said the campground was nice and restrooms cleaned daily. Lots of park activities including bison habitat and pool. There is an admission fee for the pool, but it has a fun water slide and diving boards.
We stayed in the 500 loop. It was a challenge maneuvering our 30' travel trailer, but worth the extra work pulling in as the sites were very private and spacious. This is one of the smaller loops so the comfort station serviced fewer campsites and was always clean. Our kids enjoyed crafts at the Potawatomi Inn. I recommend trail 7. Two dump stations available, but both are in rather strange places in the middle of the 300 and 400 loops rather than on the way out.
Another great Easter weekend camping at the Dunes. Hardly any other campers. The restrooms were clean, but not as clean as previous visits. Still nothing to complain about. Enjoyed the bird tagging on Sunday morning.
Camped over Halloween. There were lots of activities. Trick or Treating, campsite decorating contest, saw-whet owl tagging was the highlight. Staff did a good job keeping the restrooms clean on a very busy weekend. Showers were hot with plenty of water pressure. Nicely finished boardwalk trail to the beach is new. One of our favorite places to camp.
Great park if you are into watersports. Our campsite (137) was huge and flat, but had a dirt surface. Several campsites had severely sloped pads that would not accommodate large trailers of RV's, so be careful making reservations. The staff was very friendly and helpful, even giving me the number of a nearby garage to have a blown tire repaired. Restrooms were clean, showers had good temperature and pressure. About 25 minute drive from Turkey Run and Shades State Parks.
This park is a dump. Roads are narrow; road I had to take to get to pull-through site was partially washed out and deeply rutted. Restroom was a long hike from our campsite and smelled of old urine. Mostly full-time or seasonal, several sites look like they had not been maintained in months. Noisy gas golf carts are everywhere. Lots of dogs. Staff was polite. Pool needed cleaning. We will avoid this campground in the future.
Great state park with lots to do. Horseback riding, plenty of hiking trails, fire tower, outstanding mountain bike trails. Shopping in Nashville nearby. We camped here over the 4th of July weekend, and it was packed. The shower houses were kept very clean despite the crowds. Great raptor program at the lodge. The pool is a long drive from the campground. Beware, there is only ONE dump station for all 429 campsites. The line for the dump station was hours long Sunday afternoon. Glad we pulled out on a weekday. We will be back!
Nice RV park close to Starved Rock State Park. The noise from I-80 is an issue. Sites are small and few have much shade. Staff was friendly and helpful. The pool was clean and refreshing. Electric power supply may have issues. My converter failed, and my neighbors complained of erratic power supply.
Since it was so early in the camping season they let us pick out our site, set up then return to the gatehouse to pay. Very friendly staff. Had a great time on the bird walk Saturday morning. Naturalist kept the kids interested. Beautiful beach, lots of trails to hike. Great shower houses. This campground is packed in the summer but this early in the spring there were maybe 8 sites in use on Easter weekend, and four of them were our group. Like having our own state park!
This is a small, quiet, out of the way campground. There are 15 electric sites with some primitive campsites. All pads are gravel and level side to side, and mostly level front to back. The site are not huge, but wide open enough at the front to make parking a large trailer easy. The restroom/showers were very clean. It is about 10 miles west of the Purdue campus. I stayed while attending a home football game, and will use this campground again. Reservations have to be made with the Tippacanoe County Parks department over the phone, receiving a mail-in reservation form that must be returned with a check.
A well rounded state park with a wide variety of activities. The campsites are mostly level. There are only a few pull-thru sites. Very few sites are well shaded. The comfort stations are clean. Sites are pretty large. One large playground in the campground and several in the park. There is a wonderful 3.3 mile paved bike trail around Worster Lake. The 6.6 mile mountain bike trail was a blast. Two boat launches and two fishing piers, but the lake is really over fished. Decent beach. Nice nature center. Bridal trails and horseman's campground. Several miles of hiking trails. In the fall there is a prairie maze. Osprey nest is always worth a look. The ospreys can often be seen catching fish. Really a lot to do here.
Pokagon State Park is a great park with lots of activities. It has a nice bike trail, nature center with helpful staff (the summer months there are lots of activities for kids, including feeding the critters that live at the center), saddle barn and bridle trails, beach on Lake James, and miles of hiking trails. The bathrooms are only okay, but the campsites are for the most part great: good sized and well shaded. We did have to come in the wrong way on what was marked as a one-way street; the only way to angle our trailer into the site. The Potawatomi Inn is very nice and has a restaurant and pool, and the park has a Toboggan slide in the winter. Close access to the Indiana Toll Road and I-69 are pluses.
Campground has a wide variety of sites from large wide open to heavily wooded. Some wooded sites may not accommodate large RV's. The shower houses were generally clean, but 60-70 campsites is alot to ask of 2 showers and 1 stool each restroom. The park is one of my favorite, and we have been here 4 times now. Lots of hiking trails into beautiful canyons, many ending in small waterfalls. The nature center is very nice with helpful employees to plan your hikes.
Turkey Run is a wonderful state park (my favorite in Indiana) with a mediocre campground. The park has a wide variety of beautiful trails varying from forest to canyon and stream bed. Trail 7 connects the campground to the park, which is a fun trail to hike. There is a suspension bridge over Sugar Creek to access most of the trails. The nature center has a planetarium, bee hive and bird observation area, and clean restrooms. The pool is huge, very welcoming after a long hike, but expensive ($2 per person per visit). The campground has a wide variety of sites from wide open sun to full shade. Please check site description prior to making your reservation: some of the wooded sites are very difficult to access with a large RV. We had a heavy rainstorm pass through that flooded several neighboring sites, leaving them with standing water the entire next day. The restrooms are cleaned only once daily (ours was scheduled for cleaning at a very inconvenient 8am to 9am daily) so don't expect good conditions later in the day. The showers had poor temperature control and were also pretty bad.
This is not a traditional campground, just a place to sleep while you visit Cedar Point. There are no fires, (but charcoal grills are provided). Being able to come back to the camper that was so close to the park for lunch and dinner was well worth the expense compared to the amazingly overpriced park food. The sites are small but ours was nicely landscaped to give privacy from our close neighbors. There is a constant breeze from Lake Erie that makes warm weather more tolerable. The restrooms are family style, a full size tub/shower, toilet and sink with a lockable door and hooks to hang stuff. They were moderately clean, but never had enough hot water for a comfortable shower, forcing us to shower in our rig. A very nice pool with kids play area was close to our site, and the courtesy shuttle pickup/dropoff was there. Just call for the shuttle from the courtesy phone, and one was there within minutes. There was an overflow lot to park our rig in after checkout while we went back to the park. The camp store seemed pretty well stocked but was expensive, though ice wasn't too expensive. On our next trip we will stay here again, but maybe plan on showering at night in hopes of hot water.
Although expensive, Disney does everything first class. The campground was beautiful. The comfort stations were the best I've ever seen: ceramic tile floors and showers, solid surface countertops. They were always clean. Employees were helpful and friendly. The resort is huge, so buses are available to get around, or you can rent a golf cart (for about the cost of renting a car for the week). We stayed on the 100 loop, which was very convenient to the boat launch to the Magic Kingdom and one of the camp stores. There was a lot noise from the nightly dinner show that you would not get if you were farther away from the venue. The sewer hookups are strange, and don't fit a standard sewer hose. They look like small stainless steel sinks. I would recommend this campground. We had a great time!
This is a nice state park with shady campsites, clean comfort stations with good showers, and some good trails to hike. Canoe rental is available in nearby Winamac. There is also a horseman's campground and miles of horse trails, which can also be shared by hikers, but hiking these trails is difficult and messy. I did not see the horseman's campground or the canoe camp, both of which are primitive. Nice waterfowl area where otters, frogs, birds of all sorts can be seen. I highly recommend trail 8 though the Sand Hill Nature Preserve on the north end of the park. Fire tower gives a great view of the surrounding area. This is a small park: no camp store (campground host sells firewood and ice), nature center has limited hours (not open before Memorial Day), no dedicated bike trail, and large rigs will struggle to navigate the narrow roads and trees in the campground. Only a couple pull-through sites are available. Cabins are available.
On our way to Disney World we saw a billboard for this RV Park and called the number. It was after dark. The host was very friendly, gave us directions to some open sites in the front row reserved for late arrivals, and told us to come to the office the next morning to pay. Staff was very friendly. Sites were nicely shaded, lots of palm trees and landscaping. Facilities were old, but spacious and clean. The proximity to the highway was convenient. Small mom & pop operation, but I would stay here on our next trip to Disney.
We camped here as a waypoint on our trip to Florida. It was Thursday night before the Kentucky Derby, and the park was packed with beautiful and expensive looking rigs. The Wi-Fi worked well. We were escorted to our campsite by the host as it was dark when we arrived. The site was quite small, but there were only a handful left when we got there due to the Derby. The shower facilities were clean, if a bit dark. The proximity to the highway was the main attraction for us. Staff was friendly.
Campground was totally redone in 2007. All sites are large with poured cement pads (although not all pads are level front to back) and large asphalt parking for tow vehicle. Best camp shower I have seen short of Fort Wilderness campground at Disneyworld. Great beach, good nature center with bird observation area.
