Very nice State Park

Very nice state park campground with electric, (50 on some, 30 on some), and water hookups. Two clean shower houses. Two dump stations. Lake for swimming, fishing, canoe, paddle boat and Jon boat rentals. Hiking trails and fire tower. Typical camp store on site. Gas station with propane about a mile from the camp ground. Has primitive sites and cabin rentals also. The park has a large outdoor covered amphitheater with several concerts throughout the season. Most sites are pretty level. There are a few that are not. The majority of the sites have at least partial shade. Weekends are usually booked up in advance. Through the week is no problem getting your choice of sites. Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial is adjacent to the State park. It has a living farm. Both are free. Admission to the state park is $7.00 per vehicle or a Indiana State Park annual pass for $50.00 gets you into any Indiana state park anytime for the year. You can book through reserveamerica.com or calling the park directly.

Perfect for young children

This park is small with clean campsites. Water hookup at every camp site. Playground, beach, hiking and boat rental are within a minute walk of your campsite.

Beauty close to home

I love the lake in the evening. The water is perfectly still. It is so unbelievably peaceful and the sunsets are amazing. We do like camping here.

Visit history

Lincoln State Park is a great place to take the kids, and the kid in yourself. They have a homestead from Abe Lincoln's childhood. You can see how he lived. They also are close to one of the best amusement parks in the country, Holiday World and Splashing Safari. So go here and enjoy a fantastic weekend.

Nice place

The campground is very nice and well kept. The campsites arent very secluded though if that is something you are looking for. There is a nice hike to an old fire tower that is pretty neat.

Family friendly near theme park

Lincoln State Park is usually packed.  It’s less than 10 miles away from Holiday World.  I think a lot of theme park visitors camp here.  I’ve stayed in both electric and primitive.  Bathhouses are kept clean and staff is friendly.  Book online using Reserve America to make sure site is available.

This place is gorgeous!

This campground is just beautiful. We stayed here during one of the Halloween Camping Weekends and my kids loved it. Lots of friendly people and the whole campground got into the trick or treating. The lake is so gorgeous and I cannot wait to stay here in the summer to be able to enjoy the beach. Paddle boats and canoes were available for rent. We will be back!

Nice, clean campground with great amenities

Really park, its even open in the winter. We stayed here in Nov. on the coldest night of the month. Had a blast, stayed warm, cooked food over the fire.

nice park

This is a nice park, very well kept. it’s a great place to stay if you want to visit Holiday World!

My Kids Love Lincoln State Park

My kids love Lincoln especially around Halloween when they do their trick or treating. Great bathrooms, great sites, lots of walking trails, close to Holiday World, so much to do with kids.
