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.

An absolutely beautiful park, nature center is excellent and staff is so friendly and goes above and beyond with interacting with the kids. Love the outdoor water park in the summer, and hiking.

I read some ifo that your swimming pool was closed Mon-Fri Aug 1st to Labor Day. Only opened on weekends. Is this true? Are there any swimming lakes near the park?

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.

Sine there is no water at the campsite, we are trying to figure out if there is water somewhere in their park to fill up our tanks? We are traveling from Florida, and would prefer to not travel with our water tanks full. Thank you in advance!
