Great place for kids
Love this place!
This campground offers a handful of trails easy to moderate. Pretty lake with ducks everywhere, as well as geese. Saw many deer through out our stay, even some beaters. Bathhouse is nice and laundry one spot. Oh and it was butterfly maiting season. There is also a creek that runs along the nature trail, which is a super shot walk, that was perfect for walking through or wading in the water. Although the further you get up steam from the lake the cleaner it gets, and bring water shoes there was a decent amount of glass.
My family and I love this campground and usually camp here a few times a year. There are always plenty of great spaces, we have never stayed at a spot that we didn't like. Spots are a good size and clean. The spots on the lake are our favorites, but are usually first to fill up. You won't be far from the lake wherever your spot is. The full hookup spots are in my opinion most crowded. I prefer the sites as you drive further into the park. Great for bike riding and lake activities. The land is flat and there are plenty of low traffic areas to ride. Boat rental fees are reasonable, you can travel to the marina for some boats but paddle boats and canoe rentals are within walking distance of your site. Some hiking is available also. The bathrooms are almost always clean and I have rarely had to wait for a shower. Pool is a decent size and discounted for campers. The camp store is usually well stocked with essentials that you don't want to go into town for, but town isn't so far away that it is impossible to get to anything. There is also a game room and a nice restroom in the lodge. Riding bikes here and hanging out on the edge of the lake is our favorite thing to do here though. They also have lots of organized activities for families.
Being only 5 hours from southern Indiana makes this spot a long weekend favorite. The camp store is always well stocked and the snack bar is a treat for ice cream. Buy firewood from the locals on the road outside of the park on your way in. The lake is huge and boat rental is reasonable and relaxing. Pick a spot in one of the Cove camping areas or go full hookup.
There are 2 parks to Beech Fork. One is the actual campground the other is the marina. Same lake but a bit of a drive to get to each other. At the campground side there is a pool. During the evening hours they offered kid friends activities like slip and slid.
The lake is the center of activity. We saw lots of wildlife (check bird migration schedules!). It’s a huge campground with cabins and lots to do in the park and nearby. Reserve a site if you have your heart set on staying here. It’s all very clean and well-kept. The individual sites are pretty open and some are right on the water. They also have nice cabins you can rent all year.
This is a nice big place to camp. About one third of the spots are lake front and the fishing is awesome. There's also a swimming pool, hiking, horse shoes and boat rental. Nice clean bathrooms and some of the campsites have internet available!!
This was such a fun area to do a little nice easy kayaking float down the river it was also a great place to go fishing there are many bluegill and bass in the waters
This campground was recommended by family it is exceeded their wonderful description. We had a large site on the water and it was a fabulous place to relax and do some hiking. An unexpected gem of peaceful relaxation.
