Probably the most favorite site we have ever had.. but.. despite the fact that we chose our site based on being next to water.. they have the spickets hacked off So you couldn’t attach a hose.. also.. ZERO cell phone coverage.. only had 1 walking trail.. but had pool & lake..
We had a great weekend here! There was plenty of room at our site for a 10 person tent. Neighbors were kind and didn’t mind that we had music playing. The lake water was high due to rain so fishing was uneventful. But nonetheless made for a great weekend. And cataract falls 20 minute drive from the park is a must see!
What a great time we had. This park had everything you could want. The sites are spacious, wooded and all have 2 picnic tables.
Electrical sites are not great for tents but non electrical can be a wild party during memorial weekend.
There are over 200 sites in this park. We reserved a spot 2 weeks before our vacation. I dont know if it was empty because it was a Tuesday night or if no one knows about this park…..people need to know about it. Each campsite is spacious and has plenty of space away from your neighbors. There was plenty of shade even though our pad wasn't tucked back in the woods. We were right next to the bathrooms which were big (plenty of stalls and showers), CLEAN, and comfortable. There is someone at the gate until 11p.m. After that, I think you have to contact the camp host for entry. Anyway…..the grass was cut, the staff was helpful and knowledgeable, and it's not far from some pretty cute little waterfalls (Cateract Falls.) Oh, and if you camp at Lieber you get free entrance to the falls. We are definitely planning to return for a longer stay.
A great campground with flat and level spots for various campers. bathrooms are decent not the best, not the worst. Would stay again if I find myself needing a place to stop off of I70
Great place to celebrate Halloween on goblins weekend.
We love going to this park several times a year. We especially like camping in the fall for their Goblins weekend.
Lieber State Recreation Area, Cloverdale, IN is west down I70 from Indianapolis, 2 miles down RT243. Cagles Mill Lake borders the southwestern side of the area.
We arrived to a very quiet campground with few campers. Our site was next to the showerhouse, in the trees and had an attached grass trail out the back. All of the campsites boasted two picnic tables and some were very spacious. The sites were electric only and there were water sites positioned strategically throughout the campground.
The showerhouse was older but maintained. There were also pit toilets throughout the campground( not much to say about typical pit toilets….)
There were primitive sites in the adjacent campground that did not have much tree cover but appeared to be good size sites to set up in.
This is a big state park with a lot of different things to do in nature (in or on the water, a few trails). It’s close to 70, staff enforce rules well, pool, sports fields, lots of different camping loop options, most are wooded, ok privacy. Unfortunately it’s crowded, could use another bath house.
