This is my third visit to the area and second time staying in the Hickory Run State Park CG. We were in an electric site. Sites are good sized, with ample space between sites, but not overly private. Camp Store is excellent. During the week the place was very quiet and peaceful. But on the weekends- Oh My! A victim of their own popularity. Very crowded. But really no worse than some other campgrounds I have visited. The one drawback is the bath houses. There simply aren't enough of them to accommodate all of the people on the weekends. Even with twice daily cleaning on Saturday and Sunday, they were a mess due to sheer volume of use. A bath house for each loop (instead of one per two loops) would be a welcome addition.
The staff was friendly and took the camp rules seriously. I saw regular patrols. On Friday night of one weekend a Very large group came and set up across multiple sites. Children screaming until 11:30, very loud music (my son said he felt like he was in a RAVE) and multiple noise complaints to the CG folks. The next morning 3 rangers showed up. I witnessed them addressing the concerns, writing citations, and later in the day all of the people had left. I assume they were evicted but don't know for certain. Nonetheless- the complaints were promptly addressed by the park employees.
All in all, I would return. Perhaps in more of an off season. But the campground is nice, the park is beautiful, and there is a lot to do.
