Top half of my faves

I have been to 9 other Indiana State parks, this one is in the top half. Great sites and clean. Large clean lake with beach. Lots of trails and many views. Staff is very friendly. The down side, bathrooms weren’t very clean and no one enforced noise curfew. I often stay up very late but I respectfully do so. When its after 1am and I can clearly hear you across the park, no bueno! Lol….other than that, I would definitely be back after I complete my bucketlist of Indiana State parks.

Very nice campsite

Clean sites, definitely seemed geared towards rv/campers but we fit in with our tent. Amazing spot for stargazing. Local trails are abundant and vary in difficulty. The lake was gorgeous and easy to get to within the park. Bonus they sell ice right in the park. Bathrooms were clean and well maintained.

Camping and kayaking

Always nice. Quiet. Clean.

We really like this campground nice large site clean bathroom very safe

Has a nice camp sites picnic area is large and shaded … also the camp store has ice wood … and long lanes for the great ice cream cones👍

Nice clean public camping.

Locsted on puplic water source lzke near Peru Indiana. Clean and spacious sites. About $25 plus $7.00 park entry fee for 50/30 amp with water. Nice restrooms and showers. Dump site available. Some sites on the lake.


Very nice campground. There are some spots with full hookups. Most are electric only. There are also quite a few spots that are full though so for bigger rigs that is really nice. Down side is if you don’t haul with water you better fill up at the full station when you see it cuz it gets busy. and when you are leaving there are 3 dump stations and it can get really really busy and long waits.


great campground! clean restrooms and short walk to the waterfront!

Family Favorite.

This is a place we visit many times a year. whether it's just for a day hike or to spend the week camping with family. Be sure to take your boat out on the lake for a relaxed time or hook up the tubes and skis and see who lasts the longest. Another favorite time to visit is when they have the Christmas contest in the summer, sites alike decorate their campers and tents with lights and blow up characters to show their enthusiasm and win the contest.


This campground was clean and fun! We went swimming in the lake. We also had fun trying to outsmart the raccoons that lived under the mini cabins. They were everywhere! Also if you want to drive to nearby Peru, Indiana you should check out their circus festival and youth circus! It was amazing to see these kids perform circus tricks!

Relaxing getaway

We really enjoy Mississinewa. The beach is always nice and clean and the campsites are large and accommodating for any type of camper. We’ve stayed twice over different holiday weekends and it’s been quiet and no rowdy partying which is a plus for us since we have small children. I highly recommend giving Mississinewa a try!
