It's close to Louisville but makes you feel like your miles away from the city life. Campgrounds are very shaded due to all the trees around the campgrounds. We had perfect spots with 81 & 83. It was near the water spigot if we needed...More

Took troop of scouts in August 2017, stayed in campground B. Scouts enjoyed the woods and the campground. The facilities were very clean and well above what we are used to having at our disposal.

This is a beautiful area. Like so much of southern Indiana, woods, streams, lakes, trails, cave exploration, canoeing. Peaceful serenity.

The campsites are right on top of each other. They crammed to many campsites into this area. If you like horses it's great, but many of the trails are covered in horse stuff. Most of the kids run wild with little or no supervision, and...More

Lots of nice campsites at the campground. If you have horses, they have a specific area for camping with horses. No camp store near though. Closest store is about 15 min away.

We camp here several times a year and always have a wonderful time. The park is always clean and the staff is always friendly. The landscape is beautiful! Having a picnic by the river and walking the trails is always a family favorite.

The local schools start on July 28 so the pool is only open on weekends. The closest body if water is Ohio River, but don't recommend swimming. Corydon has a public swimming pool. Patoka Lake has a nice beach.
