Relaxing Setting

Overall this truly was a cute little spot to camp out on our way to Kentucky! One of the benefits of this site is that the cave and gift shop are right there, so you have a cool Opportunity to take a tour and then stay in the same area. The campgrounds are all equipped with a nice fire pit, picnic table, lean to, and the availability of electric hookup. The campgrounds also has a couple newer cabins that look really cute. The camper and tent spots are right along a cute little creek so it was very pleasant. They have a small shed attached to the gift shop that has firewood for sale. They have a small cafe that sells the usual hot dogs, chips, soda and the sort. They also have a larger open air pavilion that they provide yard games like, cornhole, horseshoes, and other games, so pretty nice. I would definitely recommend this as it is small and intimate, but if you are looking for private seclusion this is not for you.

Best we have visited

Me and my wife came to Indiana to visit with family. We all met up at the campground there was 5 of us , the lot we got was small but still good size big enough to fit 2 tents and have plenty of room for our camp fire. I was most impressed with how clean the facilities was. There was someone cleaning the showers and bathrooms every few hours, everything was always fully stocked. There was also tons of stuff to do. We all went out on my brothers boat. The next day my wife and I rented kayaks, we had a blast. We will definitely be back.

Great state park!

Super clean bathroom and friendly people!

The campground that never sleeps

The campground itself was decent but it was very noisy the holiday weekend I stayed. People were chopping wood at 4:30am one night. Late night partying and music followed up with early rising children riding bikes and talking loudly. All sites are very close to the main road. The tent site I had wasn’t very level. There is a lot to do here though and would be a great place to bring groups of kids and teens. They have zip lines, paintball, bike trails,etc

Hoosier National Forest (Hardin Ridge)

The campsite was small so if you have a large tent be prepared for it to take up most of your site.  The area was beautiful and had ample trees.  We would have been better off splitting into two camp sites due to the size (married couple and two friends).  It was a challenge to get both tents and a shelter set up on the site with the two cars as well. 

I was able to also set up my hammock in the near by trees. Do explore the area as lots to do and see.  The lake naturally:) but they also have a cool fire tower and cabin in the area.

Safe and Family Friendly

The camp grounds at Brown County State Park are safe and family friendly. They can be crowded at times, however the other campers are normally very friendly and inviting. The park has a great deal to offer with regards to activities, such as swimming and hiking. The mountain bike trails are some of the best in the state. Great place for a family vacation.

Large sites, hiking, biking, and fishing

Quiet park with large camp sites. It was a wet weekend but the park staff kept up with cleaning the bathhouse.  Had a civil war encampment  with a reenactment at the old village.  Nice memorial building to Gus Grissom. If you don't camp they have an Inn as well.

Large Camp Near University

We stayed here last summer on our trip to Canada. It’s one of four large campgrounds with around 50 sites each. It’s in hardwood forest next to the popular Monroe Reservoir. We were able to get the last of the walk up reservations on a Friday at atriums 3pm. The campground tends to get full on the weekends from local campers. I would recommend reserving a spot ahead of time. The facilities were clean and roads were excellent. Lake Monroe is the highlight here and a number of campers were bringing small boats for fishing and tubing. The camp hosts were ok and trying to deal with the large crowds. We had the last spot on the end of Bluegill Loop which provided some peace and quite. I would recommend this place during the fall when the summer time crowds have gone.

Ummmm... no
  1. There wasn’t anyone @ the entrance
  2. There wasn’t anyone @ check in for camping.
  3. No room for slide to come out when it said there was when we booked.
  4. No cell coverage @ most sites.
  5. Unkept grounds.
  6. Pads were so narrow that it was hard to park.. wasn’t just us.. others said the same thing..
  7. Lake was gross
Great in the fall!

Went for fall break & their Halloween week! So much fun

Great campground!

Enjoyed the falls! Cleanest & nicest bathrooms & shower houses that we have ever seen!

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..

Hills, shade, and streams

Stay over Memorial weekend Campground: very hilly. Loop B sites are very uneven. If you have a trailer I suggest the A loop or definitely have enough equipment to make you level. Could use another bathroom, bigger bathroom, or a pit toilet. Bathrooms were clean. Plenty of spots for a hammock. Trails: fun and shorter. Trail 10 was the only one not well marked, but we figured it out, and it was worth it. All the others were well marked.

The Great Smokies of the midwest

This beautiful park does not seem to belong in the Midwest.  Our family returns at least once a year for the scenery and biking.  We generally use the Rally group campsite and invite our friends to join us.  This site is great due to the extra room for tents and proximity to the mountain bike trails.  Keep in mind that these sites run a lot more per night and additional occupants that show are expected to pay the park over and above the daily rate.  Also the park does not allow usage of the campground shower facilities if you stay on a Rally site.

We have also stayed in both the electric and primitive sites.  Both are very nice and allow use of the nicest campground shower facilities around.

This campground is busy all season so book a long time in advance.  Also they are very strict about dogs even in the large open areas so beware to keep them on leash at all times.  No frisbee or fetch games allowed.

There is camping

There are designated camping sites found in the forest maps

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!

In progress

Pull through sites are spacious. Tress are young, across the road from Brown County national forest so hiking galore. And a short drive to Downtown Nashville Indiana! Hit the kettle corn stand for the best kettle popcorn around! Pool is okay a bit dated, camp store was sparsely stocked.

Camping

Fun times with family

Very shaded

I really enjoy this campground. I've camped here about 3 times and every time was enjoyable. The one thing to note is that the section of sites to the left (when looking at a map) are all very hilly so it might seem flat, but they're all divided by a lot of hills (with the most right campsites being downhill). We didn't realize this the first time we came here to camp, and the host was very accommodating and let us change sites to one closer to the restroom and to the top. It had recently rained, so we didn't want to get flooded.

They're decently spaced between each site as well. One of my favorite campsites in Indiana.

It's got everything!

Full hook-up or water and electric sites, sites are level. Tent sites available. This place has zip-lining, paintball, arrow tag, ATVs, off-road tours, mountain biking, hiking, cabins. It's near Nashville, IN's quaint shops, music venues, Stoney Lonesome, Gnaw Bone, and, of course, beautiful Brown County State Park.

(Four stars because we stayed there during a wedding and the music and traffic from the wedding was a bit intrusive; also, because when we arrived at our campsite we had to ask management to remove a squatter, so the site was not clean).

“Fantastic Indiana camping experience.”

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.

Camping

Nice quiet and a Great Lake to go fishing.

great family camping

Delaney Park is a great family place .nice cabins good fishing and lots of boats to rent or bring your own. Camp how you like, from Primitive to Glam-ping. Its at the start to a Fifty mile trail ( Knobstone Trail) or you can do the Delaney Loop in about 6 hours. ( 7.5 miles and 2000 ft elevation change ) a good challenge for all ages. trail is well marked and maps at gate. Lots to do and also nothing to do. Bring whole Family and Friends for a great weekend or just a day

Very nice

We love camping here. Very clean bathrooms and shower houses

Taylor Ridge is awesome!

All of Brown County State Park is beautiful, be we particularly love camping down in Taylor Ridge! It’s very secluded, quiet and beautiful. We have not made a long trip there yet, so we are not aware of the condition of the facilities. But I’m sure they are just as beautiful as the rest of the park. Brown County is the whole package, camping, hiking, horseback riding, breath-taking overlooks. It’s definitely worth the trip! I recommend spending an afternoon in Downtown Nashville while you’re there! It the the most adorable little town.

Best Indiana family camping!

We love spending time at McCormick’s Creek. The facilities are always very clean. We were pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness of the bathrooms and showers in the campgrounds. We have never seen bathrooms that nice and clean at any state park. The playgrounds were clean and provided lots of fun for our son. The trails are so nice and very well-maintained. Our 5 year old had no problem hiking any of the trails we took. Wolf Cave and the Falls are definitely worth seeing! Wolf Cave is quite a thrill and the Falls are so serene and beautiful. Even the dump station is very nice and well maintained. We never have any problems at all during our stays at McCormick's Creek. The staff, facility and park are all so wonderful.

“In the heart of beautiful Brown County”

This is a beautiful State Park situated in the rolling hills of southern Indiana. The park offers year around camping with reduced services in the winter months (they do have a heated bath house in the off season). Seasonal outdoor pool, hiking trails, mountain bike trails, Abe Martin Lodge with a year around indoor pool, lakes, naturalist service, nature center and horse camping/trails. The park is in close proximity to the artist village of Nashville, shopping, good dining and groceries. Autumn is the heavy tourist season with the changing of the leaves…breathtaking vistas from the parks elevated vantage points! Large rigs must access the park through the West entrance due to a low clearance covered bridge at the North entrance.

“This was a total surprise!”

Starve Hollow State Recreation Area is 280 acres that are adjacent to Jackson-Washington State Forest (18,000 acres). Starve Hollow offers a great camping experience with accommodations ranging from primitive to full hook-ups and the park is impeccably maintained. The full hook-up sites are spacious with most offering a nice tree canopy. A large number of electric only sites are bordering the 145-acre Starve Hollow Lake with a large swimming beach, and picnic area. The park offers boat, canoe, and kayak rental plus an Education Center, fishing, hiking and mountain bike trails that extend into Jackson-Washington State Forest. The surrounding communities are full of interesting history; the longest existing (460') covered bridge built in 1875, classic round barns, original iron bridges, and the historic Medora Shale Brick Plant (1904) to name a few. Easy access from I-65 via US 50 W, then SR 135 S.

Simply Divine

This park is phenomenal! With 3 Campgrounds to choose from you can’t go wrong! Amazing staff, great amenities, well kept and clean. There’s a lodge, restaurant, playgrounds, store, pit toilets, bath houses, swimming pool (fee required). Electric hookups with a dump station, and water to fill your tanks. The only drawbacks were not being able to access the new Water Park at the lodge. If you stay at lodge or in cabins you may use. Also, there is an access fee, if you’re camping it’s only paid once.
