Went here for a day hike and it was an absolute treat.
Had site 151. Partially shaded, level, not far walk from potable water. Only electric. No water or sewer at my site. No problem though. Had some trails to hike on. Nothing spectacular but a great place to stay a night or 2. Very clean and well kept campground. Sites in “Paw Paw Loop” are much more desirable. Especially sites 143-154. Shaded, private, near potable water 👌🏻
My husband & I spent 5 nights at Charlestown State Park in mid-September 2020. Campground was nice with concrete pads and full hookups. Campground was not heavily shaded, but we didn't mind that at all. We biked throughout the park and hiked 4 of the trails, 3 of which were pretty rugged and all had elevation changes for a good hiking challenge. From here as a base we also spent half a day in Madison Indiana, (shopping, dining & winery) and biked the Ohio River Greenway path - nice 7 mile one way bike path from Jeffersonville to New Albany and stopped for lunch before turning around to head back. The bike trail also has a bike/pedestrian bridge across the Ohio River to the trail which runs along the river on the Louisville side. Would absolutely recommend and would go back again.
This state park was totally boring nothing to do.
Campground is pretty understaffed. But….it was still fairly clean & quiet. Be mindful of the showers, you only get a 10 seconds d burst of cold water 😆 It was pretty shocking! The trails are nice, pretty well maintained. There is a tour of Rose Island, which was very intriguing. Everything is “driving” distance; the park, trail heads, picnic shelters, camp store (which doesn’t stock much), etc. We will definitely be returning. Loved the peace and quiet of this place.
This is a nice state park campground. The spots were decently spaced out, the bathrooms are clean, and there are some hiking trails from the campground.
The campground is over 2 miles from the park entrance, so it’s definitely not an easy in/out kind of place. Also, they started mowing the grass at 6 am right outside our window. That seems inappropriately early.
Looove this hidden gem. We stayed there in early March, the first weekend it opened for the year. It's a fairly new park on the site that used to be the Indiana Ammunition Plant. Good-sized sites with a very helpful staff. I hiked trail 2 and found the waterfall and several other gorgeous views. Will definitely be back!
Spent 5 nights and had a wonderful time. Enjoyed trails, big lots and lots of stuff for the kids to do.
Absolutely 1st Class. Beautiful sites, clean, well kept, spacious. This is the model for ALL campgrounds.
Campground has clean facilities and good hiking including historic areas
