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 …..

One of my favorites

This campground is amazing. All sites are well maintained and nice. Bathhouse is clean. Lots to do and nice paved roads for bike riding. We stayed here during a softball tournament and it was so nice to be able to come back to the campsite between games. Pool area is super nice with a waterslide, diving boards and a unique rock climbing wall in the deep end. My kids always look forward to this campground.

Nice place

Nice little campground

Great campground

Great place to camp with the granddaughter.

First to Review
Hidden gem

Great place to hike!! Trails are well maintained and lake is beautiful no matter when you go. Campground leaves a bit to be desired since the tent sites are a tad small but the rest of the park is so fantastic that we didn't spend a lot time time around there anyway.

Nice family campground

Versailles State Park is a clean and family friendly camping destination that we enjoying visiting. There are three separate main campgrounds here; A B and C. C is our favorite because it is small, and mostly level lots (except the far end) with mature trees. B is larger with level lots, but usually crowded. A is very hit or miss as far as level sites. It’s very tight back in there, but more wooded private sites. It’s usually not too rowdy here unless you visit on a booked holiday weekend. The pool is nice, and the kids love the slides and diving board. There are some nice trails and a lake where you can fish and kayak. I would also note that there is only one dump station for the three campgrounds so there can be quite the line when trying to get out of there on a Sunday afternoon. Overall the park is very nice and I would definitely recommend to camping families.

good for family camp trips

Has a ton of activities — swimming pool, mild/easy trails, horseback riding, etc. Campsites are close to one another and showers/bathrooms are available. Not all that remote or private and doesn’t offer many trails or outstanding scenes, but a good site for family trips or a weekend away with friends.

It's ok

Nice people and beautiful sites. It's really close to the highway and LOUD! I like to hear nature when I came to destress not semis all night long.

Clean and convenient

Winton Woods is located conveniently off of I 275. The sites are good size offering full hook up and electric only sites. It’s a great place for kids to play and ride bikes. They have a nice fishing lake, frisbee golf, bike and walking loop around the lake! Enjoy!

A sardine can with trees, cable? not at our 3 sites, wifi sketchy at best.

Nice grounds but, if you like your awning to touch your neighbor's camper then this place is for you. Cable? Wifi? Could not get, new rig tried at the house and works perfectly. Won't be able to book this place again

Great park

This is clean and well maintained campground. The sites are large, and RV parking is easy. It's a long way to town, so be prepared. There were 2 camp hosts and they were responsive to campers.

love this place

loop C site 202

This is a nice site. easy to back in. nestled up to some trees. Not good for tents. Pad is long.

Very nice campground

Large camp sites

Beautiful

This campground is in a quiet area with amazing scenery. The access to hiking trails is wonderful.

Clifty Falls Primitive campsites

Nice sized campsites with good amount of space between sites. Pottable water spigots every 8 or so sites. Have to drive to trail heads from campsites. Beautiful trails to hike! Enough trails so you don't feel crowded by others

Very nice "urban" campground

Very nice campground inside the urban loop in Cincinnati. Close to everything, yet quiet and secluded camping experience. Limited number of full hook-up spots - more would make this and even better site. Get your ideal site early during busy season.

Nice easy going

campgrounds spots for the most part are level fishing is very good reasonable priceing

Keep looking

The area around here is pretty barren. Not much in the way of resources. Not a lovely area - in the middle of a military base community.

Beautiful Area

This campground is located in the shadow of Madison, IN. There are trails for all levels of expertise.

Te reason I gave this park a 3 is because the campground was not mown when we got there, calf deep grass, and the person at the campground gate handed us a map, and that was it, no hello, how are you, zip. In general the staff was not overly friendly or approachable.

Hving said the above, we totally enjoyed the trails, falls, and other sites to see around the park. I would recommend this park to anyone. We will go back. We didn't see everything in the area even though we were there5 days…

Family oriented

This campground has so much to offer all ages.

Lots of potential!

Nice place to stay with lots of outdoor recreation. Sites are not maintained as well as other state parks but still adequate. Pull through sites are just big enough for average size rigs. Back in sites are small but you can set up off of the designated pad. Guest campers were very friendly and helpful. We will be camping here again.

Busy campground. Cool hiking.

Be sure to reserve early, this campground fills up quickly.

Great for hiking, water activities, has a pool and nice lodge!

It has lake activities, hiking, biking, fishing. Camping can be in tens or various cabins or even in the lodge. Lodge has a restaurant- food was good. There was also a pool within the lodge. They have some planned activities and hikes for those interested!

Large campsites, pool ,lake activities, others

Versailles State Park is the second largest state park in Indiana. Within the last year with the coordination of the Indiana Trail Riders Association, DNR and volunteers, primitive, overnight, horse camping was added to the park. Several more miles of horse trails were opened and a mountain bike trail section was also added to the park. Plans are in place for more mountain biking trails and a fourty-five site electric and water Horsemans camp, to be completed in phases. This is a very clean park, large pool, hiking and lake activities available. Bald eagles have been spotted in the park along with local wildlife. The local restaurants are family owned and offer large portions if casual dinning is in store, with homemade desserts.
