  • What an amazing State Park and campground. The trails were nice and there is a lot of history in this park to discover. It is right on the river so sitting down by the water was very peaceful. We stayed at the campground which was very spacious, very well kept and modern with full hookups and 50-amp services. Close by to all your grocery and shopping needs and nearby all the attractions to be very convenient. Far enough off the roadways to be completely quiet also.
  • First time at the campground this past weekend. It was very quiet. Many of the campsites are not shaded, so if this is a requirement for you be sure to look at the pictures on Reserve America. Shower houses were large and very clean. There isn't a playground in the campground, but there are some in the park. If you like to hike or ride your bike, this is the campground/park for you. If you like to just sit by the fire and relax, this is a great campground for that. We will definitely be heading back to this campground/park.
  • This is one of my top favorite Indiana state parks. There are old structures and the trails are awesome! My favorite trail would have to be trail six because it's next to the river but the Clifts are a plus.
  • My favorite state park because it's close. I love getting out and just being around trees so this is a great place to go. The trails are awesome!
  • Rose Island was the thing that I learned about on our day hiking the park. The remote locations along the Ohio river had these hand crank audio players. They required a bit of work to play the long audio tracks, I provided plenty of encouragement to keep my wife cranking the devices. The park showed the historic flood levels of 1937 that helped wipe-out the early amusement park.
