This is one of the great Indiana state parks. The only trick is that you have to pay the state park entry fee to get into the campground the first time you enter so expect an extra $10 charge. We camped at Pokagon State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This was our first visit at this park , and was not disappointed. The restroom shower houses in loop 300 and beach were clean during our visit . They are out dated but in good condition. All roads are paved, loop 300 most sites had fresh stone put down. Camp store had the normal essentials. You could borrow a wagon to haul the firewood to your site. Just looking at other loop IMHO loop 300 had the larger sites for bigger rigs. You could still pick up some local TV stations We camped at Pokagon State Park in a Travel Trailer.

The park is not unlike all of the other state parks we've visited. They are all beautiful in their own right and Pokagon was definitely no exception. It is hilly, (mostly) green, and located on the shores of Lake James (a public lake). The campsites were large and campsite 429 was huge. We think that site 429 use to be two sites that they made into one because it had a large whole in the center of it were another burn pit use to be. Most of the site was dirt with a few occasional grass patches. The actual camping pad was also just dirt, unlike the gravel found at most state parks. The sites were also fairly shaded with lots of trees covering most of the grounds. The playground was nice for the littler kids, but our six year olds were pretty bored with it after a few minutes. The park did offer a wide variety of activities. The have a cool refrigerated toboggan run but it is only operated throughout November-February. They have a pretty nice little nature center with a lot of live turtles, snakes, fish, and frogs. The beach is very nice, but small. The water is pretty clean, shallow, and has a sandy bottom. We don't want to be harsh, but he bathhouses are gross. The showers were dingy and dirty, paint was peeling off the walls, the floor tiles were cracked and dirty, and there were lots of cob webs. There are two dump stations located in the various loops of the campground. This is a bit odd as they are located in the campground loops, like on the main drag to exit the loop, which means that on Sunday morning there is a huge traffic jam of campers blocking the road right in the middle of the campground. On top of that, the dump station in the loop we camped in was pretty small. Our 30 ft camper barely fit in the station. We camped at Pokagon State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We were reserved in the 100 loop - (Site 111). The restrooms in this loop were sketchy. When we got to our site, we were only able to pull into our site by using the site across from us. Once we got into it, we discovered that the only electricity available was at either of the neighboring sites. Our cord needed to be three times longer, so we were in trouble, as the temperature was going to get down to 39 degrees that night. We left our site and went up to the check in. They sent up a DNR guy to help us. Meanwhile, the people in the site across from us arrived and had to use our site to pull in. The DNR saw all our problems and very nicely put us into the 500 loop. The 500 loop is flat and easy to get into and out of. The bathroom is clean and nice. The 100 loop was much more interesting and rustic, but we were just as happy to switch. All of the DNR people we spoke to were the nicest people. BUT there is no hot water in the showers. It would be better to install pay showers and get hot water. We camped at Pokagon State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed in the 500 loop again. Fewer sites in this small loop so the restrooms stay cleaner. There was a NO hot water Saturday. But otherwise a great trip. We enjoyed the bike trail and nature center. We camped at Pokagon State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed in the 500 loop. It was a challenge maneuvering our 30' travel trailer, but worth the extra work pulling in as the sites were very private and spacious. This is one of the smaller loops so the comfort station serviced fewer campsites and was always clean. Our kids enjoyed crafts at the Potawatomi Inn. I recommend trail 7. Two dump stations available, but both are in rather strange places in the middle of the 300 and 400 loops rather than on the way out. We camped at Pokagon State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Pokagon State Park is a great park with lots of activities. It has a nice bike trail, nature center with helpful staff (the summer months there are lots of activities for kids, including feeding the critters that live at the center), saddle barn and bridle trails, beach on Lake James, and miles of hiking trails. The bathrooms are only okay, but the campsites are for the most part great: good sized and well shaded. We did have to come in the wrong way on what was marked as a one-way street; the only way to angle our trailer into the site. The Potawatomi Inn is very nice and has a restaurant and pool, and the park has a Toboggan slide in the winter. Close access to the Indiana Toll Road and I-69 are pluses.

Very good state park. Heavily treed, very quiet during the week. Lots of sites fairly well spaced, although we were given a pull through that was fairly close to the ones on either side of us. Many of the back-in sites were quite large and well separated from their neighboring sites. We were only passing through on a long trip so we were only interested in a quiet place to stop overnight and we were not disappointed. We are planning a return visit later this season, and may well stay there again! We camped at Pokagon State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Nice camp ground. Sites were a bit too open for our taste. Some areas were kind of cramped. We liked loop 5 the best. Very wooded with lots of nature trails. Access to Lake George from Campground. Horseback riding and hayrides available for additional fee. Also had boat rentals. Nature center on site and indoor tobbagon run in winter. We camped at Pokagon State Park in a Travel Trailer.
