Nice park

Park was nice. We stopped here overnight. Had AC going but could hear road noise from interstate/ nearby roads.

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

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.

Been going here since I was a kid

I love this place. The campground is pretty packed but with hiking as good as they have, I’m not surprised. I’d definitely do some hiking and I recommend canoeing sugarcreek as well.

Close Quarters

The manager Tina and her husband are great people but the camp sites are to close together and we would not camp here again. The sites are difficult to get into and although they allow one car on the site there is barely room for that one car. The electric is shared with another site which could be…

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.

Serene site

For my Tent only camp site. I loved it. It’s spacious it’s for the most part shaded. It is right next to the lake. I get some views. In the pictures I posted you’ll see what I’m talking about. As far as the campground I did take a drive around it’s pretty big n has a lot of shaded sites. I think…

  • Home sweet home for seven days
  • Unfortunately the bushes were there. If they were gone you’d have a better view of the lake

Nice wooded spots

We had spot 234, big, wooded, close to clean shower house, close to playground. State park is great hiking. Avoid the inner part of that loop if you want any shade, it is an open area.
