Very secluded, county owned park. Gravel sites. 1-9 are shaded along wooded ravine. 10-15 are in open area across road. Dump station is very convenient. Small, stocked pond onsite great for kids fishing. Excellent area to ride bikes. Near larger county park with trails and disc golf course. Less than one mile from full golf course. Facilities on site for retreats, receptions, family reunions etc. (Was originally a 4-H camp in 1920s). Shower house for CG is very new- nice, large and clean. Reservations are made through the county park department. This is a great place to stay for a quiet getaway.
Very new CG. Two distinct sections- south end in pine forest- huge, private sites of crushed gravel w/full hook ups- long way from showers. North end- open prairie with newly planted trees (great views). Electric only, very close to nice, clean shower house. Highly recommend reservations for weekends/holidays. Ghost town on weekdays. No pool, but great playgrounds, super paved and flat bike trails. Nearby history museum of early 1900's farm (xtra fee). Developing replica Indian village. Near national historic "Battle of Tippecanoe" monument. Close to Purdue U, Lafayette and W. Lafayette.
Owner accepts cash/check only. Right next to interstate- steady drone, but also convenient. Easy travel to St. Louis- approx. 1/2 hour to Arch. Otherwise CG was very quiet. Owner smartly spaces out each arriving guest. Bring extra water hose- used every bit of 30' to hook up. Strange layout on the site of hookups (electric, sewer and water seemed to be on opposite ends of site.) Not many activities on site- some long term trailers in the front, but well separated from us. Quaint touches like a garden you are welcome to use (we took lettuce and spinach). Tomato and pepper plants on each site were still growing. The restrooms were some of the cleanest campground restrooms I have seen. Very light occupancy during our stay. An excellent site to stay and see St. Louis. If you are looking for a "back to nature" experience, probably not the place for you.
Sites are nice- level, concrete. Easy to get around. There are very few showers for the size facility-3 for each gender. It is a shame they are not better cleaned, for it would make this campsite a 9 at least. Because you can pull in an find any vacant site, you can wind up with "mixed" campers. We had a group tent camping one night next to us singing-playing guitar all night. If there were coordination or gate house it could separate the family/quiet areas from the party animals. (I don't hold the CG responsible for the behavior of other campers- it is not reflected in the rating, only a suggestion) The hosts did do a good job of notifying campers of impending severe weather.
