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.
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).
We stayed a few nights at this campground in October. The campground is made for smaller sizes but we were able to negotiate the main ring road with our 37' travel trailer. The spot that we had reserved was in an area were we could not get into but we went to the gatehouse and they gave us another spot that was on the main ring road that we were able to park in with no issues. Cell service was great with Verizon and AT&T service. The lake was beautiful and the park was well maintained. Wished the beach, paddle boats, and petting zoo was open… Still had a great time. We will surely come back next year when everything is open!! Had 30 and 50 amp service with water hookups and a dump station at the exit. Make sure you have plenty of leveling blocks. We used all of ours and was not level.
Spent 2 nights here while passing through on our way to Mississippi. We had full hook ups on a pretty level pull through site. Wifi and cable was good and we had decent Verizon service. Although our spot didn't have leveling challenges, I noticed some did. One class C I saw had his front wheels 6 inches off the ground. The people in the office were friendly and accommodating.
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!
Beautiful lake with geese nesting areas and great fishing opportunities. Calm waters for kayaking.
Since July 2020, the Governor of the State of Indiana has mandated face coverings in indoor areas and in outside spaces where social distancing is not possible (and signs are posted everywhere). During our three-day-stay, we did not see any DNR staff at the gatehouse, the campground store, or a conservation officer complying with wearing a mask. In addition, most campground guests were not wearing them either.
In addition, this park is listed as participating in the Explore Indiana pin program but no one seemed to know anything about it. We did the work to earn it but were not able to add it to our collection.
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.
