This park has several spacious full hookup sites with plenty of shade and a few that are tucked away in the trees with a lot of privacy but the best spots for seclusion are electric only with water fountains/spigot close by. Water fill and sewer dump are at the entrance to the campground with very wide pull through areas with plenty of room to do a 180. We absolutely loved this place and it allowed that tent camping vibe even in our 34' trailer. Quiet as a tombstone and with close to 200 spaces, it's easy to show up late and still get a great spot. Park staff was extremely friendly and helpful and the restrooms/showers were very well kept and clean. There is no swimming pool or playground in the official campgrounds area but there is a playground in one of the large picnic areas. There are 6 long trails for nature hikes. Several miles back in the park there is a very nice boat ramp with picnic area and two piers overlooking the Ohio river. This is a huge well kept state park with wide paved lanes everywhere you go. If you enjoy privacy with well groomed, level sites and clean facilities close to the Interstate this is a great state park! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

Immaculately-maintained state park in rural southern Indiana, and one of the few that offers full hook-ups. When we were there, the main attraction (Rose Island- former historic hotel site) was closed due to renovation. The other feature of the park, the Potterstown Bridge, is a 3-mile hike with a significant grade to access. Given that trail has a 'rugged' rating in the park guide, we opted out of that sightseeing visit. There is access to the Ohio River, including an overlook platform, and a boat ramp, and picnic areas near the river. Fourteenmile Creek runs through the property, but it's 200-feet down a wooded cliff, so fishing in the creek isn't much of an option. There is no camp store on the property, so all supplies must be bought before entering the park. The campground is about 2 miles from the entrance to the park. Note to travelers: DO NOT TAKE SR160 from I65. GPS will take you that way if you're coming from the north. Unless you're pulling a small camper or pop-up, you will not want to take this road, especially in the dark (as we did...). It's a posted 'no-semis' road, and they mean it. However, the reason we give the park an '8' rating is that it is very clean, the sites are very large, and the restrooms are clean. The campground was nowhere close to being full, so it was quiet and nice to walk in the evenings. Met many nice folks, and there weren't packs of kids screaming around the roads on bicycles. Many of the sites are surrounded by woods, and filled with honeysuckle, so the aroma outside is really nice. The restrooms are clean, the staff is friendly, and the sites are spacious and nice. Oh, and the OTA television is good (all Louisville stations), and there's a strong 4G signal on ATT mobile. If we're in the area, we would camp here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

Beautiful state park, very green and lush with wild turkey's roaming the park. Our site was not level but we noted many that were. Roads and sites are paved. They have some FHU w/50 amp and also electric and electric and water only. Many sites are big rig friendly. Roads are a bit narrow in the park, but we had no problem navigating them in our motorhome. Park was not crowded, even though it is a lovely setting. Close proximity to Louisville, KY (20 miles or so). Restrooms and showers were clean. Rates are a little high for a state park, but we felt it was worth it. We'd definitely come back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
