Great campground but some sites not level

This was the second and third time we stayed at Brown County. This time we stayed in Buffalo Loop sites 95 and 93. First - about site 95. We have a 21’ RV/van and we just barely fit in the site - take their length limits seriously. This site only has 20 amp power, so make sure you have an adapter if you need 30/50 hookups. The site is NOT level. Usually with our van we don’t need to worry, but in this site we used our leveling ramps and probably could have used more. Looking at the other sites on this side of the loop, they all look like they would need leveling if you’re in an RV. Site 93 is more level and is private (RV/car will block only neighbor). This campground has very convenient dump stations right by the loop.

Good camping

Privately owned, nice camp grounds, store, playground, half court basketball, heated pool and small fishing pond, I enjoyed staying here, friendly staff and guest, I made a few friends there

Stay in Loop A or B!

We love this campground. The sites in the B loop are pull through and can be converted to buddy sites (camping with a friend - face your awnings toward each other). I think you can get a travel trailer on A, B, E & G loops too but with the other loops you may be parking on the grass. The sites are sloped on loops C, D & F. 

There's also a great creek off B loop that you can walk including a fun waterfall with a 'swimming hole'. 

The lake has a horsepower limit and is great for kayaking or using a SUP. 

There are several hiking trails near the B loop - one winds around to the lower campground. Nice elevation change. Other trails near B loop are much easier to navigate for anyone - even those with mobility challenges or pushing a stroller.

Beautiful Campground

We stayed in the Buffalo Ridge loop on a Tuesday night in early Dec. The area is beautiful and the campground was mostly empty. We stayed in site 94 which is completely set apart from the other sites. The site was very level and easy to back into. There is a trail right behind the site - great if you want easy access to a hike, but may be annoying if other people walk through your site to get to the trail. There is a VERY clean toilet right across from this site. Would definitely stay here again! Site 93 was also nice - neighbors only on one side (which would be blocked from fire pit area if you’re driving an RV).

Gorgeous views

Camped here with some friends and really enjoyed it. Beautiful area with nice paths and trails to hike.

Very nice shower facility and bathroom. The showers are nicer than what we have seen, and very private with a nice area and plenty of room.

Employees at the camp store were super helpful and polite. Lots of options and things to purchase. Really well stocked camp store. They also have nice easy access paved sites for those that need. We will definitely be back to this campground, really enjoyed our stay here.

Mountain-like Park in Southern Indiana

Wonderful park, easily mistaken for Appalachia!  Variable site options for all sizes of vehicles and modes of camping.  Well-staffed and well-maintained.  Easy access from the Interstate south of Indianapolis and worth the diversion for travel camping (as we did); certainly worth it for a regional destination.  Toilets and bathhouses of varying age and quality, though the ones we experienced were excellent!  Camping is on a ridge or plateau with trails and roads descending from campground levels.  There are many activities and even paid horse guides/rides.  The mountain biking is excellent, with purpose built trails for beginner to expert (flow, berms, rollers, jumps…).  The north entrance is through a covered bridge with a 9 foot clearance and 3 ton limit!  Otherwise, use the easily accessible west entrance, just a few miles "around the corner."

I like it so far

Just joined.  Trying to find any city park or visitor centers permitting camping.  I know they are out there but not well known.  Easy to use.  Love the fact I can use it if offline.  I'll review in a few weeks when I actually need it.

Fun campground for pop-up campers

My wife and I had a great time visiting Hueston Woods and visiting the Raptor Center. Located north of Cincinnati along Ohio’s border with Indiana.

We stayed here with our pop up camper and felt right at home. The bathrooms and shower houses could use some updates and there were no full hook up sites when we went but our site was nice and quiet.

Our dog, loved the miniature golf and visiting Acton Lake.

Had a great time!!

A great destination for the motorcycle camper! Some really fun country roads in the area, but close to the highway aswell! The grounds are well kept. While the place is family and kid friendly, there’s still a good time/party vibe goin on too!

Clean, family friendly

We went camping with a bunch of friends, two campers and two tents. Had a great time, bathrooms were clean, kids had fun. The fall months are crazy busy. Not all lots are truly great for tents and the backs of some lots can have a super steep drop off since the camp grounds have a higher elevation so that made me a bit nervous camping with s kids. Lots of great hiking trails, a nature center, public pool, small market, horse trails and water views.
