Amazing sites on the ridge

Huge state park, with beautiful camping, hiking and mountain biking. Sites are large, in the woods and were awesome. Beware, there are rattle snakes. We saw a copperhead and a timber ridge rattle snake. One of the best camp experiences we have had.

Favorite Campground

This is by far my favorite campground. It is nestled back in the woods of Brown County and is absolutely gorgeous, especially in the fall. It is very quiet. If you can, try and get a spot towards the front of the campground as the back has sites that are pretty steep.

Awesome campground; great views!

This was our first family visit to Brown County State Park and we really loved it. The park is gigantic! It takes a long time to get from the entrance of the park to the actual campground, but the drive is beautiful. The sites around us were spacious and had a lot of mature trees. The nature center is really fun with animals and a bee hive that the children really enjoyed! There are a lot of diverse hiking trails for all. The nearby shopping, wineries and restaurants are definitely a plus as well. This is now one of our favorite destinations and cannot wait to return!

Safe and Family Friendly

The camp grounds at Brown County State Park are safe and family friendly. They can be crowded at times, however the other campers are normally very friendly and inviting. The park has a great deal to offer with regards to activities, such as swimming and hiking. The mountain bike trails are some of the best in the state. Great place for a family vacation.

Great in the fall!

Went for fall break & their Halloween week! So much fun

The Great Smokies of the midwest

This beautiful park does not seem to belong in the Midwest.  Our family returns at least once a year for the scenery and biking.  We generally use the Rally group campsite and invite our friends to join us.  This site is great due to the extra room for tents and proximity to the mountain bike trails.  Keep in mind that these sites run a lot more per night and additional occupants that show are expected to pay the park over and above the daily rate.  Also the park does not allow usage of the campground shower facilities if you stay on a Rally site.

We have also stayed in both the electric and primitive sites.  Both are very nice and allow use of the nicest campground shower facilities around.

This campground is busy all season so book a long time in advance.  Also they are very strict about dogs even in the large open areas so beware to keep them on leash at all times.  No frisbee or fetch games allowed.

Very nice

We love camping here. Very clean bathrooms and shower houses

Taylor Ridge is awesome!

All of Brown County State Park is beautiful, be we particularly love camping down in Taylor Ridge! It’s very secluded, quiet and beautiful. We have not made a long trip there yet, so we are not aware of the condition of the facilities. But I’m sure they are just as beautiful as the rest of the park. Brown County is the whole package, camping, hiking, horseback riding, breath-taking overlooks. It’s definitely worth the trip! I recommend spending an afternoon in Downtown Nashville while you’re there! It the the most adorable little town.

“In the heart of beautiful Brown County”

This is a beautiful State Park situated in the rolling hills of southern Indiana. The park offers year around camping with reduced services in the winter months (they do have a heated bath house in the off season). Seasonal outdoor pool, hiking trails, mountain bike trails, Abe Martin Lodge with a year around indoor pool, lakes, naturalist service, nature center and horse camping/trails. The park is in close proximity to the artist village of Nashville, shopping, good dining and groceries. Autumn is the heavy tourist season with the changing of the leaves…breathtaking vistas from the parks elevated vantage points! Large rigs must access the park through the West entrance due to a low clearance covered bridge at the North entrance.

Simply Divine

This park is phenomenal! With 3 Campgrounds to choose from you can’t go wrong! Amazing staff, great amenities, well kept and clean. There’s a lodge, restaurant, playgrounds, store, pit toilets, bath houses, swimming pool (fee required). Electric hookups with a dump station, and water to fill your tanks. The only drawbacks were not being able to access the new Water Park at the lodge. If you stay at lodge or in cabins you may use. Also, there is an access fee, if you’re camping it’s only paid once.
