One of the cleanest campgrounds I have been to. Very nice, few bugs, grassy. Would go again.

Not that we're highly experienced RVers, but this is hands down the nicest park we've ever stayed at. Meticulously manicured with very friendly staff and site hosts. Several different campgrounds to choose from. They don't take reservations; it's first come first served, but there are enough sites so you'll likely never have a problem. Check in host will tell which grounds are best for you. Small but well supplied general store. Tall maples, paved roads and spacious sites with campfire/grill pit & sturdy bench tables, bath houses that are as clean as our home, spacious sites (many are level but quite a few are inclined a bit). There are sites deep in the trees and sites in the open; all are near bath houses. We stayed in Raccoon Run, almost chose 'Whitetail' cause it was nice too. 'Lakeview' has lake views but no electric and mostly tents. Lotsa wildlife; we saw otters, raccoons and deer but heard there are a lot of beavers too. Non Indiana residents pay a $9 park fee per day without a pass; camping was $22 for us on top of that. No doubt we will make it a point to stay here again... and for a longer stay as well. And did I mention - NO BUGS - in August. But do watch out for poison ivy near the thick trees. You'll need your own firewood too, but that's normal.

| Nice Campground but some sites are very uneven

If you have a big rig you are screwed. You will never get it leveled because one side of the site is about 6 foot more or less than the other side of the site. ( if you're in a site up against the woods) Make sure you have nothing sitting out at night because there are lots of raccoons tearing your stuff up.

| Cleanest state park campground I ever stayed at

I live near this campground and stay there often. Let me clarify some other comments. 1. They do take reservations during spring to fall months, Holliday are booked months in advance, easier in weekdays. 2. At least half of sites are level at least within 2” which I block one wheel on a 2x8 block or 2. Very common in wooded state parks in hilly lake country. 3. Yes lots of Racoons and deer, love them, it is a State forested Park . 4. On a large lake, so take your pole and boat if you like. Good clean water. 2 week max stay, camp store.
