This a small, quiet campground easily accessible from I71. We stayed during the Apple Butter festival and had a wonderful time. The park is family friendly, clean, and there a several areas that have been updated. The playground is not actually in the campground, neither are the basketball courts. New concrete full hook-up sites, new bath and shower houses, and a new dump station. The sites are a bit close together and backing our 38ft TT into our site was a bit challenging were our two main critiques. There is a large group of very dedicated volunteers who work tirelessly to plan and put on wonderful events, crafts, and the WONDERFUL country breakfast! We highly recommend and we will be back! We camped at Mt. Gilead State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This was our first visit to Brown County State park and we will be back soon! We camped four nights over Labor Day weekend, the park was sold out. Despite the hundreds of campers, the park remained clean, well maintained, and was never less than family friendly. The park is easy to navigate a big rig in, and all the roads are paved and well marked. This park has three loops available for RVs, but Raccoon Ridge is mostly primitive and most sites do not have electricity. Buffalo Ridge is at the beginning of the park and we would describe it as "city camping." Lots of sites, crammed together, with a tree or two scattered throughout. We drove and rode our bikes through this area, and it appeared clean and family friendly but was WAY too congested for our liking. We stayed in Taylor Ridge, which offers paved and gravel sites in very wooded areas. All sites have electric. Throughout the entire campground potable water is available. No sites have full or water hookups. This park has a mix of fully plumbed bath houses and pit toilets (glorified outhouses). While we only showered in our RV, we did check them out and they appeared very clean and well stocked. Some sites are quite a walk to a full bath house. Excellent cell and 4G service, Verizon. We got tons of local TV channels, no Internet at this park. There is a cute camp store for odds and ends things you may have forgotten and the park is 15 minutes from a grocery store. Overall we experienced some good hiking, our 6 year old was able to ride a pony ($3.50), and we enjoyed the nature center. This park doesn't disappoint if you're looking for spectacular views, good trails, and lots of nature. We camped at Brown County State Park in a Travel Trailer.
If you're looking to venture out of the park, Nashville boasts tons of cute little shops and places to eat. It reminded us of a mini Gatlinburg!

We camped here for a long weekend and loved it. Driving to the actual park is a bit nerve wracking, as we have a 38ft camper and the park is accessed through narrow back roads. When you arrive at the park, follow signs for camping. Stay to the right, and when you think you have missed it, keep driving and you will dead end at the campground. The campground is deep in the park.
This campground is tucked back into the park a few miles along the lake. Sites are well spaced apart, and all sites a paved and easy to navigate to once inside the park. The attendant student at both the check in desk and the convenience store were very friendly and knowledgeable.
No water hookups at the sites, but various potable water sources throughout the campground. The park is very family friendly and offers a playground that was in decent shape, but could use a little TLC.
We had excellent cell, Verizon, and 4G service. Bath houses were very dated, but clean and stocked. All electric hookups appear to be very close to parking pads; outs was less than 6ft away. We enjoy hiking and this park has one 2 mile trail that needs some maintenance and not much else. Overall we were very pleased and will be back in the same site next time- site 68. We camped at Stonelick State Park in a Travel Trailer.
Stonelick is a popular destination for kayaking and canoeing, as the lake does not allow motorboats.

Upon arrival, no one was in the check-in booth, but we were able to find our site and set up without a problem. This is a small state park, but it was well maintained, family friendly, and clean. Sites are all paved, but range from level to severely off grade. We have a bigger RV, 37ft, and didn't have any issues maneuvering through the park. The campsite is a giant loop with the bath house, playground, and basketball court in the center. There is a pool in the park that was a short 10 minute walk from our site. We got great cell, Verizon, and 4G service. We picked up a fair number of local TV channels as well. As a family that likes to hike, we thought the trails left something to be desired. They were well maintained, but short and choppy. We didn't use the bath house, but did scope it out and it appeared dated, but in clean working order. There are tons of scheduled events and activities on Fridays and Saturdays we enjoyed as a family. We only saw a park ranger once during our stay, but never had an issue with noise or rude neighbors. Everyone was very friendly and welcoming! We will be back soon! We camped at Blue Licks State Park in a Travel Trailer.
If you are traveling down 68 South, use the second entrance!
