    Harmonie State Park Campground, nestled near New Harmony, Indiana, is a gem for those looking to escape into nature. Open year-round, this campground offers a mix of tent, RV, cabin, and even glamping accommodations. The sites are spacious, with some offering electric hookups, though water hookups are not available directly at the sites.

    One of the standout features here is the abundance of amenities. You’ll find clean and functional bathhouses with showers, though the push-button showers might take a minute to heat up. There are multiple playgrounds for the kids, picnic tables for family meals, and a nature center that hosts various events, especially during the summer. The campground also has a market where you can purchase essentials like ice and firewood.

    For those who enjoy outdoor activities, Harmonie State Park has plenty to offer. There are numerous walking and biking trails, and the park provides access to the Wabash River, perfect for a bit of fishing or a peaceful riverside stroll. The nearby town of New Harmony is worth a visit for its unique history, quaint shops, coffee spots, and dining options.

    Visitors have noted the friendly staff and the overall cleanliness of the campground. However, be prepared for the local wildlife; raccoons and other critters are known to make appearances, so keep your food secured. Also, the bugs can be relentless, so pack your insect repellent.

    Overall, Harmonie State Park Campground is a fantastic spot for a family getaway or a quiet retreat into nature. Whether you’re here for a weekend or an extended stay, you’ll find plenty to keep you entertained and relaxed.
