Tons of hiking but tons of ticks!! We were there in Early June and the ticks were everywhere. Stay on the gravel. But very nice place with showers.
Great place to take the family for a weekend retreat or a day outing. Nice beach, good fishing and plenty of trails.
Hiking trails, beautiful lakes, lots of area to each campsite. We weren’t expecting it to be as great as it was, but we will be back!
We came to Shakamak for a 3 day trip this weekend after visiting White Rock Park on Wednesday. The campsites were well kept, shaded, and the bathroom/shower house was clean. There were several nice looking trails, 3 lakes that were great for fishing, and a really nice pool with water slides and diving board. The pool also had a splash area/wading pool for your smaller kiddos. Firewood and ice were decently priced, and we found many of the electric campsites backed up to the lakes. We did have several nighttime visits from a couple large raccoon families, but it became a game for the kids as they watched for them.
There’s plenty to do here for all ages. We had a special pancake breakfast by the Friends of Shakamak- all you can eat! That was a treat! In spite of the rain, we enjoyed the sights and sounds of nature and camping with the family. There are three beautiful lakes there that are good for boating and fishing. There is a large pool too with a nature center that has limited hours. Today, the Nature Center had a snake demonstration at 2 pm. Yesterday was planned a kayak trip by the DNR there. There are plenty of playgrounds, a camp store, and nice bathroom/ shower houses. The trails are good for the Explorer! You will enjoy this park!
Super clean bathroom and friendly people!
This is just a beautiful Indiana State Park located near the small community of Jasonville, Indiana which offers simple dining, grocery store, hardware store and fuel. The park has numerous recreational activities to include 3 lakes spanning some 400 acres that are known for spectacular fishing, seasonal family aquatic center for swimming with a large water slide, seasonal nature center, and several hiking trails. The campsites are in a heavily wooded area with fantastic tree canopy for shade and comfort. Sites are mostly level gravel pads ranging from primitive to 30 amp electric, 50 amp electric or a limited number of full hookup; water, sewer and 50 amp service sites plus plenty of clean bath houses. Large rig friendly. The park also has family cabins available. A small camp store supplies firewood, ice, bait and sundries…Indiana fishing license at the park office. Want to relax…enjoy beautiful sunsets on the lake, paddling a canoe or kayak, or casting a line for dinner…this is a perfect place to make that happen.
Great place to camp. They have pull spaces for large motor homes with 50 Amp electric. They also have several nice shower houses and plenty of dumpsters for dumping trash. Each site includes a fire pit, electric, and picknick table. Online reservations was a breeze. The only negative is the main parts of the park are a good distance from the camping. The pool is wonderful and many trails to explore.
nice area with room for kids to play between spots
I loved this campground. Nice Trails, fishing pier in the family campground. Camp store. Nice loop around the park to ride your bike. Swimming pool.
