Lincoln State Park, Lincoln City, Indiana

Date of Stay: May, 2016 - $18.00
Overall Rating:

The only reason we will stay at this park again is because we strolled through and made a list of the better sites, knowing which ones to ask for, next time.

There isn't much conformity in the sites, with a few being paved, but most are gravel. Many of those need a dose of Roundup to kill the vegetation that is taking over the parking site or -better yet- just bring in more gravel.

The park has a drainage problem. We were assigned a site that meant stepping right into a puddle when we exited our Class C. We had to go buy a tarp to lay over the puddle so that the dogs wouldn't track in a mess. When we walked the grounds, we noticed many of the sites had problems with standing water. That probably bodes poorly for later in the year, with mosquitoes.

The showers are OK. One thing to note is that they are "army showers." The water stays on for about 45 seconds and then you have to push the button for more. The cubicles are very small; the outside section where you leave your clothes is very-very small.

One thing I like is the presence of a security rover, around-the-clock. Not that this is a dangerous area, but it is nice to have someone to flag down if there is trouble.

Overall, it is an OK park. Quiet, in a very scenic area, but there aren't many conveniences, for all that it's a touristy spot. We will probably stay again, but this time I know which site to ask for. We camped at Lincoln State Park in a Motorhome.
