Large tent sites - no cell service

Nice big campsite for our tents. Flush toilets; bathrooms could use some repairs. Fishing dock and area were clean with portable toilets. Walking trail. Safe area, well lit, and patrolled often. Pool & beach. We rented a pontoon boat which was very nice. Camp store for basic supplies. No cell service at all in camp area. Just a short driving distance to Cataract Falls - which is beautiful with a nice walking trail and covered bridge.

A boaters paradise!

The center piece of Lieber State Recreation Area is the 1,400 acre Cagles Mill Lake. This is a flood control reservoir that is popular for pleasure boating, small house boats and sport fishing. Nearby attractions include the beautiful Cataract Falls. The campground consists of 115 Class A(electric only) and 94 Class B campsites with most tucked under hardwood and pine tree canopy. The campground features include a camp store for basic needs; firewood, ice, sundries and boat rental plus a recently updated dump station and potable water access area and clean comfort stations. Electric service is 30 amp only. Plenty of spots for larger rigs and many are fairly level with asphalt pads. The park offers a seasonal aquatic center with a zero entrance pool and water slide, a nature center with interpretive naturalist program, numerous shelters, playgrounds and picnic areas. Boating is the focus…but the camping is nice too! Easy access location just 3 miles south of Interstate I-70 on IN-243, 40 miles West of Indianapolis, 35 miles East of Terre Haute. Reservations recommended on summer weekends;

Beautiful site! But...

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..

Awesome Campground!

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!

Beautiful park

What a great time we had. This park had everything you could want. The sites are spacious, wooded and all have 2 picnic tables.

needs some work

Electrical sites are not great for tents but non electrical can be a wild party during memorial weekend.

This campground is beautiful, big, quiet, and surprising.

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 good state park

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

goblins weekend

Great place to celebrate Halloween on goblins weekend.

Having fun at Lieber state recreation area

We love going to this park several times a year. We especially like camping in the fall for their Goblins weekend.
