14 Reviews of Raccoon - Cecil M. Harden Lake

Very nice camping. Lots to do.

Great Atmosphere

Overall, a very nice campground. I grew up just 30 minutes away from here and recently just visited for the first time. Nice camp sites and friendly staff. My only reason for not giving 5 stars is the bathrooms are nice, but not air conditioned.

Plenty of fun!

Raccoon State Recreation Area | Cecil M Harden Lake is located in the heart of historic covered bridge country just 50 miles West of Indianapolis. The campground is surrounded by the 2,060 acre Cecil M Harden reservoir offering boating (boat rental), fishing and a large swimming beach with concessions and amenities. The campground is extremely well maintained with many sites sheltered by tree canopy ranging from non-electric, 30 amp, to 50 amp. Fresh water is available at fill stations and a spacious dump station area make for easy disposal. Many of the sites are not level so chose wisely to suit your needs. Easy beach access from the campground via a paved walk/bike path, well stocked camp store at the entrance to the campground, well maintained bath house facilities, active interpretive Naturalist programs, and numerous hiking trail opportunities round out the amenities. This is a beautiful campground; and if you like to explore…take a drive through the area and enjoy the many historic towns, covered bridges and roller mills throughout the county.

Great place to camp

Great place to camp, can be flooded at times, some of the sites have a huge inclines or declines, allot of sites reserved way in advanced. There is a few pull throughs, no water hook ups at site.

Great camping!

Be prepared for the Raccoons and tons of fun! Beautiful lake with several nearby places to rent boat's! Beautiful, peaceful campsites with a lot of shade!

Great Campgrounds

We had an amazing weekend camping at one of the non-electric sites. Our site was right next to the lake, which was awesome for the kids. The grounds were very clean and the sites had plenty of space. The only drawback for us was having one shower stall available in the Men's and Women's restrooms in the non-electric area.

Our go-to State Park

Well-maintained campground! The restroom/shower facilities are clean and well lit. Campsites are nicely wooded and spacious. Most are very unlevel though - so bring ALL your blocks! 😜 Good hiking and a fun and clean sandy beach. Also a nice biking/walking trail. For those with boats, this is a nice sized lake with easy access too!

Raccoon Lake

Great visit when boating is your main objective!

Raccoon Lake

Great campground, clean and nice sites! There is plenty to do, and the lake it one of my favorites! plenty of boat ramps for access and great environment all around

Fun for everyone!

Racoon Lake was an awesome experince. We rented a pontoon boat while we were there and went tubing up and down the lake. It was a clean campground as well. The views were absolutely stunning.
