Not the worst experience

After reading negative reviews from 2020, I was hesitant that they were true. That all of the critters from Louisville flock to this area. That wasn’t entirely untrue. This place is absolutely great for people watching, but expect the quiet time hours to not be enforced and a large number of dogs…

I just keep coming back!

If you’re into backpacking but live in the Midwest, this is the place to go. There are enough trails to keep you busy for days, beautiful lakeside camping, and peaceful pine groves. Only downside is that most trails are also equestrian. If you don’t mind a bit of horse poo on your boots, head here.

Nice place

This is a small campground but the people there are very friendly.

Beautiful, forested campground

I’ve been camping at OBannon Woods for 25+ years. The campground is large, mostly shady and very well-kept. Bathhouses feel luxuriously clean and large compared to most campgrounds. There are multiple play areas for children and beautiful hiking trails within and around the campground itself.

Geodes, geodes, geodes!

I had the awesome experience to hammock camp on the Patton cave trail, along the creek that winds the length of that trail. It was a strenuous hike to pack in/out of, but was beautiful scenery. The cave is amazing, and if you’re interested in backwoods camping, there are an abundance of spaces to…

Nice

Initial campsite reserved was NOT suitable for tent camping. Had to put up our tent 3 feet from men’s bathroom door! However, we discovered we could put up our tent on a grassy area a little down the road from where all the rvs were parked. It was a walk to the restroom as a result, but it was well…

Great Park to relax

Great little park located just far enough away to get away but close enough to town to run and get something if you forgot it.

Campground is pretty compact but stays pretty quiet. Two well maintained restrooms and shower facilities. Property has a lodge, cabins, pull through, full hook up, and…

Awesome park

We were passing through on our way north. Chances a reservation here, as KOAs are hit or miss. We had our 16 yo grand daughter with us, and she actually had fun. Very well kept and the staff is great.

Simple and Small

The park itself where the camping happens is actually pretty small as in one loop.  We never saw a park representative. We were there on a weekday and we…

Great Surprise

Rolled into this area for water and found two free campgrounds next to the river with a large park for the dogs to play in. A pretty solid spot except you don’t have much privacy. Other than that would definitely recommend for a night or two.

Very nice campground, staff a bit careless

We loved the campground, it was very luscious and beautiful and even though there was a lot of people (June 2021), it still felt like you had your privacy in your own site. However, only 4 stars because we got there and somebody was parked in our assigned spot, so we called the front desk and they…

Very pretty view from the site but hard to find

Very pretty view of the riverfront! The campground was a little hard to find because it’s hidden behind an actual park but once we found it, we found that each campground had a picnic table BUT not every site had water and electric outlets. This area looks like it hasn’t been taken care of in a…

Our Stay at Charlestown

Right off the bat we appreciated the layout of the camping spots, while you have neighbors not more than 30’ from you it feels more secluded because of the vegetation growing between sites. We also loved the hiking opportunities, Rose Island is definitely a must see
