One of the best camp grounds
The sites are very close to one another but nicely kept. It's a shame they don't open up the side that is closer to the river and spread the sites out a bit. 2 shower houses and lots of fun stuff for older children to do (8-12). Pretty quiet except it is on the airport path so at night you do hear a lot of traffic coming in. Internet is slow slow slow on the weekends if that matters to you or your teen. Plenty of restaurants and groceries right off the exit too.
It used to be free with an email request for a reservation but eventually the foundation that runs this campground did have to start charging a small fee to help with maintenance and operating costs. It’s a very family oriented campground with more rules than many campgrounds, such as no alcohol. They want it to be kid friendly and not a party destination. My husband is a “sit around the fire with a beer” kinda fella but he didn’t mind giving up a couple beers for such an awesome experience. They have great hiking trails, a creek with a couple “swimming hole” spots, several large wooden playground systems, a village of playhouses for the kids, an awesome stairway and walkway on a cliff, beautiful surroundings and an awesome staff!!
We stayed here 1 night driving through, but really enjoyed our time. We were in site 50 in the trees. It appeared most of the other sites were out in the open and close together. Our site didn't have a water hook-up. But we filled our fresh water tank at the shower house. We hiked to the falls and tunnel. Next time we'll bring a flashlight and go all the way through the tunnel.
Close to Madison, IN. We ate dinner at Shipley's Tavern and had really great burgers. This was a fun stop we want to come back to.
