Close to home and close to nature. Overall this campsite is amazing in the sense that its in a very natural setting. The firepit is pretty huge and you can cook on it real easy. By request, you can have firewood delivered here. Would go back.
Very small campground and narrow roads. Many sites were not level and some sites were very short so make sure you review the site description.
Also some had sewer hook ups and others did not.
You did feel like you were in the woods so that was a plus.
Walmart and McDonalds were half a mile away.
When we stayed here it was like 100 degrees. Our camp host was so sweet and gave us a box fan to use (there is electrical) so that we could have some relief from the heat.
Our camp site was nice and private yet close to a bathroom. The bathroom, even though vaulted, was kept very clean.
The lakes are pretty and we were able to explore with our paddle boards, but I wouldn't necessarily swim there.
We liked this pretty campsite.
We had cellular reception so we were able to work and stream music. :)
There were these cute little lizards that roamed our campground. Didn't expect to see those. They are harmless, and probably eat the mosquitos, so we liked them.
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 stayed on late October and I was the only one there, except for a family on the cabins. The spots are just near and walking distance from the caves and other attractions. They have two potable water spots (so no water on each spot), picnic tables, fire rings, grills and every spot faces the little river. restrooms and showers too. You can bring small pets inside the cave if you carry them all time. I have a small zuchon and carry her in a doggy backpack 🎒 she loved it!
Camp sites are pretty small, but are aligned along a small stream. Heavy truck and train traffic can be heard at all hours. Sites equipped with electricity, a gazebo & picnic table, and fire pit. Camp store, cave tours, gift shop, and other pay activities are within steps of camping, but only open until 5:00. No security or staff at all after hours. Bath house was heated, extremely clean with flush toilets, and continual hot water. City water access in the middle of the campsite. Play area and 2 large covered areas for get together's. Newer cabins looked very nice from outside. Caves are obviously a must see while there. More caves are within driving distance.
