Robin Hood Woods Resort

My husband and I stayed there 3 different times now and we like it there. The owners are real nice.

Great campground for kids!

Great campground for a chill entertaining weekend with kids. Beautiful new pool was perfectly maintained with plenty of tables and chairs to make a day of the time at the pool. Pavilion and picnic area near pool and playground perfect for family gatherings or kids birthdays. Even a small game room.…

Nice place to stay.

Nice place to stay. Camp hosts are great. AT&T has good phone service. Only one dumpster for trash and it's at the entrance to the campground. Shower house is clean and well maintained.

Bo Wood is a hidden treasure

Located on Lake Shelbyville, Bo Wood is an Army Co of Engineers park. Plenty of full hook ups and tent camping spots. Most by the lake. Well kept with bathroom and shower facilities, a playground and laundry.

Nice campground site

Stayed here for the night on a roadtrip in a tent only. Right off the interstate. I got there late at night and was able to get a location without a formal reservation. The owners are super nice and we took care of everything in the morning, hassle free.

Nice campground

We stopped in for the night on our way west. The check in was easy and the young lady was helpful in picking us a great spot. It’s quiet and very clean! If we lived closer I would definitely come back!!!

Beautiful place

We camped there for a long weekend. It served our needs. We were there for a rally that was held in Leroy. We didn't spend a lot of time at our campsite but when we did it was very pleasant and peaceful. We saw alot of people walking, kids riding bikes, people fishing, just good old fashioned…

We love this place. Problem is it's a State park and the state is not fixed a shower house and dump station. It's been not working since 2020. Because of this, only two stars. If those items works like they should, then four stars.

Not much other than the lake

If you have a boat, canoe, kayak, float this is a great campsite for you. The trails were flooded and we didn’t get any internet reception, but we had some great sunrise views. Some of the spots aren’t level and not much space to put your outside gear. The bathrooms were decent.

Not bad

A lot of golf carts driving around all day and night. Sites are a little to close. Trees in the shaded spots don’t allow you to put your awning out.

Nice campground

Like the campground. It has a trail around the whole lake. Only problem is that the sites are not always the size they say they are. A 40 foot site might only be 20 feet.

Loved the Hike-in Sites

We came on Memorial Day weekend so the campground was very full. It didn't feel too crowded though except when playing on the playground there were lots of kids and its not a very big play area. But it was fun for the kids to play with other kids. 

While I wish the tent are and comfort station…

  • Quick look at our campsite. Ours was definitely the biggest site with the most distance between our site and others. Ours was also the only one with the concrete pad area. And it was the closest to the tent parking area. There are 10 tent sites along the trail and they each get progressively further from the parking area.
  • Our campsite. Only thing I didn't like was the placement of the fire pit. It was right by the trail going to the other campsites so it was hard to get that secluded/privacy feeling when around the campfire. Also instead of having a grill on the campfire. There was a separate camping grill at the site.
