Straightforward little campsite

There are 8-10 spots available, all but one of which are drive-in. I think a smaller RV or third-wheel could get into the first and last spots, otherwise, all the spots looked suitable for tent or hammock camping. 

We had enough Verizon coverage to get emails and make calls but not enough to have worked on for a longer stay. The campsite is near Saddle Lake and it is walkable at a stretch but there is no swimming allowed there. Based on the other visitors, fishing is the main draw here. The sites were somewhat divided by trees and undergrowth but you will see or hear other campers and the occasional truck flying up the nearby gravel road at 2 am. Site #11 is more private and not visible from the drive in, it is on the right as you pull in going toward the lake.

Collecting firewood is not permitted here. Bring whatever you need out, I did not see anywhere to get ice or firewood between the campsite and I-64.

The vault toilet was adequately clean. 

Dry camping (no water). 

All drive-in sites had a fire pit and picnic table. 

We had a hook for trash and whatnot. Be advised that bears are only very rarely seen in Indiana but the racoons are ruthless and highly organized.

I wrote about my visit here: Saddle Lake camping un-fails

  • The entrance to the campsite coming from the expressway
  • Self-service area and posterboard. (There is no trash-pickup here)
  • A typical site with a picnic table and a fire ring.
  • I think this used to be a Wrangler's campsite, here is an old water pump for livestock. I guess?
