Great Trails, Quiet Weekday Camping

We had our pick of the primitive sites when we arrived midweek for a single overnight stay. Most of the sites are either barely large or flat enough for a tent or in full sun. We found the perfect roomy shaded site with a great private trail down to look over the water. The park office staff was friendly and helped us obtain our explore pins. We also enjoyed the well stocked camp store and the playground right behind the store. We used a handful of the vault toilets located throughout the park and they were surprisingly clean. We walked a few trails and along the shore by the dock next to the beach. Trail 1 is definitely more than moderate and would be difficult with young children not experienced in hiking. Overall we had a great time and will likely return for more than a one night stay.

Great trails and several different camping options

This is one of my favorite state parks. We have visited and camped here several times. They have great cabins, a perfect primitive tent only camping area, a nice camper area with more amenities, and even an inn. The trails are fun and varied for all skill levels. They are well maintained and pretty easy to follow. It is a little more difficult in the Fall when they are covered with leaves but still not too bad. The creek waterfall is a great place to cool off and some of the trails criss-cross over the shallow areas of the creek as well. This place is a must visit for Southern/Central Indiana.
