Amazing view and fishing

Got in late after a spurratic decision to camp. Got here and found that point 5 was open and we tried it. Beautiful view, nice people, and great lake access. Mossy but we casted over it no problem and never had any issues.

Flower Park

Stayed at River Birch 15. Site has a pretty severe grade as the site goes back. If you have a 20+ travel trailer I would be inclined to choose another space. Site mostly level left to right. On the corner next to the road but minimal traffic and close walk to the dumpsters and bath house. Nice shade. River Birch is definitely the more popular loop and was full Thursday night versus barely any campers at the other 2 loops.

Basic sites with great locations

We stayed at Ash 8 right on the water. We loved the location of the site but it was very short. I had to park our truck halfway onto the road because there wasn’t enough space. Wouldn’t have been an issue except we were right at the peak of the curve on the loop so needed to move for larger campers to make the turn. We love the location of the park being next to Griffin Bike Park and it makes for a great base camp for a weekend of biking. Big parks for the kids and a settlers village to wander through. The newer shower house is nice and a big upgrade from the older bathrooms that are still there.

Campground as a whole is very similar to other State Parks. Water hookups not available at sites but able to fill up before setting up or bring a very long hose to reach the spicket in the middle of the loop.

Word of caution: 50amp sites only have 50amp and do not have 30amp plugs. You will need an adapter to use 30amp from a 50amp site. The campers next to us found out the hard way and had to drive in to town to get a converter.

Great place to visit

I have been camping here for many years. It is part of Vigo County parks and recreation and is first come first serve for the sites that are RV accessible with electric hookups. There are metal fire rings at each site. The showers and restrooms are clean and are cleaned daily. The access to the campground is gated and locked at 10pm each night. There is a colonial village and covered bridge on the north end of the lake. The lake that it is located on is beautiful. Easy access to walk and fish along the bank on 80 percent of the lake. It is a great place to visit and the sites are large.

Awesome spot

Pretty awesome site. Parked right by the lake front. Private and quite. We paid $12 for primitive.

There is also a really nice loop around the lake with a swimming spot and some old cabins for some westworld feels.

Tarmac pretty smooth for a longboard glide almost all the way around the lake.

“Beach” in Indiana

Primitive and camper sites available first come, first serve. $12 primitive tent sites on water. Kinda close together and some are shaded. Sites have sandbox pads. Pets allowed. Nice bathhouses. “Beach” open 12-6. Also have a Pioneer Village and nice playgrounds (not open due to Covid). Great place for fishing, picnicking, canoeing/kayaking. Clean, but a little noisy. Lots of families here.

Good fishing.

Can fish right out your "back door". Very clean showers. Not much in the way of shade on campsites.

Small, friendly little park

Great hiking trails, beautiful bike track and fishing. This park also has a pioneer village and yearly activities such as vintage camping and a pancake breakfast! The campsites are shaded, but a little close. The tent sites have raised sand beds so you're not directly on the ground. The bathroom is clean and staff are friendly.

Wow, a gem that didn't show up on my gps.

As far as camping, not a ton of spaces. Most seemed to be ok size. The great: a lot of the sites are right on the water or really close to it. there bathroom/shower house is newer and clean (it could use a vent window though). There is a nice beach. We stayed in July and the water was really warm. The gentleman that happened to be working the afternoon we got there was super helpful. The bad: because of the fingers of the lake, a lot of sites back up to each other REALLY CLOSE! You may find that you can hear everything going on in your neighbors sites. The AWESOME: this park is a short four minute bike ride from Griffin Bike Park, which is an amazing mountain bike park.

Personal Thoughts and Experience: We had a wonderful time. We absolutely loved the pioneer village. it is a must go especially when they are having pioneer days in the fall. There is a mountain bike park close to the campground that is a premier facility. Beginner to advance trails with a practice course. Amazing! My husband competes in the Dyno series and loves to train at the facility then camp at Fowler Park!

Nice scenic campground.

Nice little County park. Well maintained but the bathroom and showers need to be updated. This park is located about 1/4 mile from the entrance to Griffin Bike park, and the mountain biking there is fantastic. I would not hesitate to stay there again.
