Awesome camp grounds!

Spaced out, great distance. Bathrooms are really clean! Some critters roam around, so lock up your food. Great hiking spots around, bring plenty of fire wood!!

Great State Park campground

Reasonable price lots of space. Showered and bathrooms were clean

Our home for the next 2 years

Two campgrounds, the lower is next to the Ohio River. Nice big sites, well maintained. Upper campground has the pool a small lake and the camp store. Both sites have full hook up and bath houses.

Relaxing

One of the most peaceful places I’ve been

Nice

Level concrete pads, full hookups, laundry, nice showers. Walk or take shuttle to the casino. Have stayed there twice, both times the grass needed to be mowed. Over all nice clean pleasant experience.

Not A Bad Stopover

I camp here occasionally, but through the years, some of the foliage is starting to die out. But there is a lot of wildlife in the area.

During the best weather, the evenings can be a little noisy with many of the motorists (bikes and cars) on the nearby roads to the north.

Toilet facilities aren’t terrible but they do leave a lot to be desired in the primitive camping and hiking areas.

With the latest budget cuts, Hueston Woods isn’t affected as much, but then again, you can’t cut what you never had.

Great park

Love the trails

Good park for RVs and kids

This campground is typically full of RVs which is good because it’s super close to a busy road. So it’s not your “deep into the woods” kind of place (our neighbors had a pizza delivered to their site during our last stay). Lots of green space, playground area for kids and putt putt. The lodge lets campers use the pool 4-7 pm for free which is nice.

💓☀️🏕

Lots of fun for the family, huge lake for boating 🚤

💓☀️🏕

Huge Park! Extremely large beach, always quite crowded though, boat rentals available, lots of places for peaceful fishing, and designated camping sites!

💓☀️🏕

Large playground (two for younger and older age groups) and water park area for kids! Also concession area for icecream, drinks, etc. Has all types of boat rentals, wild life, fishing, camping, huge wrap around walking track, and many more hidden treasures!

💓☀️🏕

Beautiful views, mini golf course near campground, secure campground site! Also, for those interested in paranormal activity with legend of strange figures and nosies from woods surrounding campground 👻

Quiet small hidden campground

Easy access but somewhat hidden, nice lake for kayaking.

First come first serve on the sites

Will be back for sure

I wish I had more time to explore everything, but I’ll definitely be back. The cabins/cottages are very nice. Worth the $$. The RV and campground are like any others, a little bit nicer than most but very crowded and right next to each other.

Large campsite, friendly park staff.

Beautiful park, with lots of hiking trails although it is sad to see the amount of litter all along the trails we hiked ( 7 miles worth). A very well stocked camping store with friendly staff. 

New pit toilets were very clean and potable water station are located throughout campgrounds. 

Watch out for the 🦝 raccoons they are pretty aggressive and were all over our campsite. Clearly they are used to getting handouts, so keep your foodstuffs in you vehicle or well secured.

Yurt life

This camp ground is pretty standard for Ohio State Parks. It does have a cool new sleeping option. Yurts! We enjoyed our time in the yurt.  They also have trails that are easy to tackle and well marked at this park. 

We were able to easily have the kids in one bed and we were in another bed.  The small fridge and microwave made it easy to pull a meal together. The fan kept us cool. 

Water is a short walk away and so are restrooms. You have to bring in local fire wood for your camp fires.

Full hook-ups! River front sites.

Clean bathrooms! Great sites! Lots of water things to do.

Great biking & hiking!

One of our staple campgrounds. Has great bike trails & walking trails. Clean bathrooms.

Great campground

This campground is close to us so we come often. Three sections A, B, C. There is a small loop at the beginning of A that has nice sites easy to get in and out of with semi private feel. Many sites are shaded and all are paved. Bathrooms are clean. Trails are really nice - some a bit hilly but super nice with creeks too. The pool is always nice in the summer and biking here is fun too.

Don't Recommend Non-Electric Sites

Out of all places I've camped in Indiana, this is, by far, the worst. Please note that this is for the non-electric sites. Reasons for the low rating:

  • the firewood that they sell to you is complete crap. It's so wet and damp that you can't burn it. We have had to take every single batch back we've purchased cause it's so bad. They don't do refunds.
  • The playground is so close to most campsites in the non-electric section. I'd recommend getting as far away as possible as the screams of children echo like birds flying throughout the campground.
  • Not the park's fault, but raccoons are horrible here. I'm talking, "walk up to your campfire as you're sitting next to it and steal food that's on the burner" bad. Lol.

We were lucky enough to find a campsite (#118) very far away from the playground which was surrounded by grasses that separated the campsites surrounding you which was very nice. Again, the raccoons were horrible though.

Such a pretty park!

We stayed two nights. Quiet, neat, clean, friendly. Pull-thru and back in sites, easy in-and-out. Take an early morning walk along the lake.

One of Ohio's best parks

I was blessed to grow up down the road from Hueston Woods, frequently camping, hiking, fishing, etc. Beautiful park, great campgrounds, numerous trails, large nature center, and awesome beach for dogs.

Awesome weekend

Great campground and park. We stayed during Camper Appreciation weekend. Lots of activities. Staff was super friendly. Park was clean. Bison herd was an awesome experience. The only down side was our site was quite unlevel. Aside from minor updating needed (like most KY state park campgrounds), this was a great visit.

Versailles state park

Versailles state park has become my families go to camping, hiking, fishing site. We go several times a year to camp and rent a 2 person kayak to hit up the lake. Surrounded by hiking trails and fun family activities.

“One of Indiana's Finest”

This is a great southern Indiana State Park with easy access from US 50. Plenty of sites to accommodate larger rigs with paved pads, picnic tables, fire rings, 30 amp, dump station and very clean restroom & shower facilities. The park offers great hiking trails, mountain bike trails, seasonal nature center, seasonal swimming pool, horse trails and 230 acre lake.

Winton woods campground

Nice campground, for a county Park. Full-hookups have little to no shade. Sites are pretty close together and small, but standard for a county Park. The electric sites are nice. Reasonable amount of shade in most. The campground is clean and well maintained. Nice playground for the (younger) kids. Shower houses are always clean and have good water pressure. The biggest downfall to this campground is the location. Just doesn't seem quite right to be able to hear city noises and (major) road traffic while camping. Other than that a decent place.

Nice and Cozy

Great place to learn some history, hike a trail, and view the bison. There are places to have a picnic, and a small campground is available. A visitor center and gift shop is also onsite.

Nice Place

This state park could use a little TLC. The acreage is good, nice views of the lake, and it does offer good campsites, however some are smaller than possibly described so use your best judgment. There is a lodge, trails, and fishing. Tennis courts are down by the Butler-Turpin State Historic House. Mini-golf and a gift shop are also available. It looks at one time there was a golf course but it is absolutely overgrown. There was some road construction during our visit so check the Kentucky State Park site before visiting.

Favorite place for quick outing

Small campground with nice campsites.Clean shower house.

The lake doesn't allow gas motors so its one of the clearest lakes in central Indiana

Season

The falls are no there if there is no rainfall or snowmelt …. I was very disappointed…. beautiful if you can go when they are in season to see them …..
