THIS IS A GREAT PLACE TO JUST GET AWAY FROM EVERYTHING AND RELAX. IT IS BEAUTIFUL TERRAIN TO RIDE ATV'S, HORSES, YOU CAN HIKE, FLY KITES, BRING THE KIDS POWER WHEELS OR BIKES YOU CAN EXPLORE THE CREEK OR JUST SIT IN THE SHADE OR NEXT TO THE FIRE AND TAKE IT ALL IN. ITS STILL ONLY 10-15 MINS FROM TOWN IF YOU FORGOT SOME SUPPLIES.
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.
We stayed here while traveling back home from the Smoky Mountains. It is a beautiful site but unfortunately we were not able to enjoy it. Great open sites, lots of walking and hiking available, full hook ups. We will definitely be back to enjoy another time.
We booked a last minute non-electric site for the night in out TT. We have family in the area so that was the primary purpose of this trip but we have visited Clifty several times and stayed at the hotel once. There is a really nice outdoor pool (extra fee) but the highlight is all the hiking in the park. Lots of waterfalls, caves and even though you are basically in town it feels miles away. This trip we were there at about peak fall colors and it was amazing. We will be back again (probably yearly) and will stay here.
PROS: Awesome state park for hiking, exploring and an outdoor pool. Most sites are pretty spread out for a state park. Facilities and camp sites are clean; indoor restroom with warm showers. On site hotel has gift shop and restaurant. Close to historic Madison and the Ohio River offering many things to do. Couple playgrounds for kids and a nature center with educational programs. They sell firewood at the campground check in kiosk. One vehicle per site but there is an overflow are at the campground entrance. Laundry facility is also at the campground.
CONS: Some spots are on top of each other, mostly in non-electric area and as most IN State Parks, no water hook-up, you have to fill your tank.
Ideal spots would be electric loop - 31-36 (a side loop, no thru trafic) or 14-28/93-104 (back of the loop, more in shade, less traffic).
I came here and stayed in my tent (family had their horse trailer with camper) for a night during the chilly nights of October. I wish all campsites were like these - very, very spread out!
Totally makes sense given that you have large horse trailers/campers and also horses at each site, but even then, they were very spread out and had lots of great space to actually enjoy nature.
In terms of trails, there was a starting access point at the horse campground for horseback riding trails that also led to the horse barn, but if you are wanting to hike, you have to drive, unfortunately. Another flaw is that the bathrooms in the horse campground aren't modern and they're pit toilets. Even with the cooler weather, they still wreaked and were not pleasant to use.
Very nice and clean Campground. The lot we stayed in was a good size and was right on the spring. The staff was very friendly and helpful!
This park is super convenient if you’re planning on going to the ark encounter and the creation museum because it’s about 30-45 minutes in either direction. The park itself is quiet, clean, fairly spread out, and has helpful staff. Only water and electric hookups, common for state parks, but that’s the only reason I couldn’t do 5 stars. Our kids enjoyed the playgrounds, the mini golf, the museum, and the trails to see the salt springs and the bison. Super neat area.
