This is a nice state park outside of Anderson In. It has nice walking trails and is on the White river. There is a gorgeous swimming pool. The bath house is clean, but not the best. It is cheap to camp at this location about $37 for the first night and $30 there after.
This was our second trip to the campground and first trip with a camper. Nice small park, overall things were quiet. There is a railroad track nearby, but the noise is not bothersome. I love the trails and the mounds. We will try a nearby kayak rental place next time.
Our visit here was awesome as always. I love the history they share about the Indians and the old amusement park that used to be there. Their trails are decent and the campground is very clean. I've always had the nicest neighbors, and they also have a pool that is open during the summer days. I think it is an additional $2 to get in. They have a very nice nature center that holds some common snakes and turtles. You can also rent a little explorer pack for your young ones to take along a trail. It includes a magnifying glass, and such things.
MoundsState Park just struck me as a perfect spot to field trip to if you homeschool your children.
Located in Chesterfield, In the park is small but has a lot of historical, geographical and natural information to be had. There are programs offered also at the nature center.
The campground is like the park as a whole, small and neat. The sites are lined up in several rows without much shade. The showerhouse is centrally located and there are pit style toilets. There is a playground at one end and what appeared to be a Trailhead.
The hikes around the mounds and park are well laid out and the boardwalk is very interesting. Spray on an extra layer of bug juice because they are thick.
