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.
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.
Had site 151. Partially shaded, level, not far walk from potable water. Only electric. No water or sewer at my site. No problem though. Had some trails to hike on. Nothing spectacular but a great place to stay a night or 2. Very clean and well kept campground. Sites in “Paw Paw Loop” are much more desirable. Especially sites 143-154. Shaded, private, near potable water 👌🏻
Lakefront sites are pretty close together but the middle area ones have more space. Clean bathrooms and showers, chemical toilets too, boats to rent, though it was a little hard to catch the boathouse open so go early. Exit the park and turn right for a little country store.
Came here for a weekend getaway with friends during a COVID-19 Labor Day weekend. The campground is very secluded right off Blue River. A canoe/kayaking company actually ends one of their river trips there so during the day it could be a bit noisy when those groups come in. Sites are relatively close but you still have plenty of your own space. Each site comes with a fire pit and picnic table. Plenty of trees to hang up a hammock and empty space to pitch a tent. There were 2 port-o-potties onsite and 1 garbage bin.
Close to Marengo Cave, the Indiana Shoe Tree and a bunch of Canoe trip companies.
My husband & I spent 5 nights at Charlestown State Park in mid-September 2020. Campground was nice with concrete pads and full hookups. Campground was not heavily shaded, but we didn't mind that at all. We biked throughout the park and hiked 4 of the trails, 3 of which were pretty rugged and all had elevation changes for a good hiking challenge. From here as a base we also spent half a day in Madison Indiana, (shopping, dining & winery) and biked the Ohio River Greenway path - nice 7 mile one way bike path from Jeffersonville to New Albany and stopped for lunch before turning around to head back. The bike trail also has a bike/pedestrian bridge across the Ohio River to the trail which runs along the river on the Louisville side. Would absolutely recommend and would go back again.
