When we checked in for our prepaid FHU site we were told that due to the first come first serve policy all that was available was an electric and water only site in Phase 2. No wifi, no sewer, 30 amp. Site was very unlevel gravel. Utilities are ancient. Pool and bathrooms in a different area. Staff attitude is "too bad, we're busy, and we're full of folks with reservations." Never mind our prepaid reservation. Never again. - Craig47

This is thousand trails/koa?? Stayed in koa section that was kind of swampy but close to a fishing lake. Nice pool and playground. Thousand trail section is large with many permanents and golf carts cruising everywhere. - Bjb1775

The main staff is the only reason this review is as high as it is. The campsite itself was clean, our pull-through site was huge, and the staff was very kind and helpful. My low review, however, is specifically to the pool staff. We were swimming in the late afternoon, and there was a good sized staff of lifeguards of 4 or 5. They must've had friends swimming, because, despite all the guard towers, they all sat in pool chairs on the same side of the pool chatting with each other, their friends in the pool, and taking pictures with their phones. Yes, at least 2 of them had their phones out, taking selfies!
We only stayed there for the night, but the place had a good friendly vibe to it. I'm not sure if we'd stay there again, but I would warn, not necessarily discourage, people from staying there. - JKBuzenby

We stayed through the Thousand Trails membership, park was well maintained. The staff was very helpful, and friendly. Our particular site had others nearby, but not intrusive. Weather was good so we did not need the shade. Many amenities, we will stay here again. - Mommaburk

Very nice Thousand Trails/KOA combination. Well maintained gravel pull thru and back in 330/50 amp level sites. Store, kids activities, pool, fishing lakes (no license needed), lodges. Right off I-70 and HUGE! Many permanents but plenty more sites available. Would definitely stay here again. - teepee51

We stayed in the Thousand Trails Phase 2 section of the joint campground. We had heard that they had made a lot of improvements over the past year and they have...to the new phase 5 section. The KOA and Phase 2 section (which are very close together) the sites were lacking upkeep. A lot of swampy areas and tall grass. Our site had not been cleaned and there was a small amount of garbage we cleaned up. Our fire ring (basically paving stones stacked up) was in disrepair and unusable. We also had a very small concrete patio with a rusty grill (filled with garbage) and no picnic table. We also only could get a water/electric only site due to the number of campers. The electric service wasn't that great but the water pressure was good. Our site was surprisingly level and stable for for our travel trailer and truck. The pool is very nice and large and well kept; the main playground is large and offered a lot of different activities for our two elementary children. There are a few other small playgrounds throughout the campground that seemed to be in good shape as well. The common areas were mowed and the trees looked to be in good shape though most open sites are in direct sun with the seasonal/permanent sites in the shaded areas. The staff were very pleasant at the ranger station and camp store but we didn't see any regularly going throughout the campground. Being a holiday weekend, the place was filled to capacity but there seemed to be enough convenient garbage bins to handle the crowd. - CinciSam

This is our go-to park for weekends & holidays. C-loop is full hookup but difficult to get reservations. Most sites are a little difficult to back into with a 40' fifth wheel & full size truck. - Duane Denlinger

Campsites are spacious and pretty level with a fair amount of shade in our loop. We stayed at this campground for two nights, Thursday to Saturday. There were virtually no people camping through the week which seemed strange. More rolled in Friday night, but the lake still didn't seem very busy. Brookville Lake has had a problem with toxic blue green algae (there was an advisory during our stay), so it is worth checking into if you plan to swim while visiting. - KyKampers

One of the largest state park campgrounds in Indiana, this park has it all. Hiking, boating, swimming beach and lots of wildlife. I counted 7 red birds in a tree at out campsite one morning. Our site was nice but a tree had been removed and the stump ground out so that part of the site was uneven and had no grass. Full hook up sites go fast for weekends and Holidays so book early all other sites are electric only. AT&T was 2bars and OTA TV was adequate. Visitor center is managed by the Army Corp of Engineers and has an overlook of the Dam and lake. I was told the fishing is very good. - Psi500

What a great state park. Wide sites, but only 30 amp electric. For a weekend it is wonderful. Warning, do not try to drive the loop road around Loop A. We came within 1 inch on each side of our 40' 5th wheel of destroying the sides on trees. We originally tried to get into site 83. Didn't even get down the side road to it because of hanging branches. And when we tried to get back to the front of the loop, it was a nightmare. Ended up in #15, which was fine. Next time I will try Loop B. I love that all roads and sites are asphalt. - User2989

This park is just OK... nothing special. You pay an entry fee just to get in the park. The bath house was convenient, but needs some updating. As usual, no hooks in the bath house, or shower mats/benches in the showers. - Dennis D

Our site didn't easily accomadate our camper & truck AT ALL! It took awhile to get a hold of anybody by phone & when we did, she said someone be there right away. An hour later he showed up! It was storming, so when he showed up we were parked! Roads were EXTREMELY TIGHT to maneuver. It took fellow campers to help us get out the day we left. - dallas 66

Called ahead and asked for a place by the pool and under some tree coverage and verified there was wifi access.I was assured we would receive all three amenities. We asked the person who met us if we indeed were parked under shade trees and were again told we were. We get to our spot which was right by the pool but there were no shade trees. I mean we could SEE them from where we were parked but none near us.The pool was completely unsuitable for all but the frogs that called it home with 10 inches of water.Major maintenance is required to get this thing usable. Falling apart and concrete missing, metal thrown in like it's being used for garbage.
We felt deceived but had already paid. After a couple weeks of some very strange traffic I called into the Sheriff's department when the Deputy on duty advised me he would probably not stay there with his family. We witnessed underage drinking as well as numerous other sketchy activities. I never felt personally threatened, but would advise caution for travelers with kids.
We tried the little restaurant and was not surprised to find the food was unremarkable-at best-but the service was awful.The woman seemed annoyed that we actually ordered off the menu rather than using the buffet.
The owner while seemingly nice lied to us regarding the 3 major things we requested over the phone. She informed me we had access to wifi but when we got there she would not relinquish the pw to us claiming she did not know it and the server at the restaurant told us nobody ever gets it.
I had a difficult time contacting the owner when calling (which really should have been my first clue)-I kept getting the "restaurant" and the owner was the only person who would discuss sites but was never around.
I would not go back as things are. This was clearly a very nice place at one point. If someone were to take some care and renovate the park and pool, maybe add a little security..I would consider giving it another shot.Until then-Beware. - Hart_Serenity

Need better direction signs inside the park. Had to ask 2 different people directions to office. Last one led me to location in his golf cart. Interior roads are gravel. Very friendly staff. Passing through and will stay here again if in the area. They have a restaurant on the premises. - RockenL

This place is really fun. Owners are ....he and his wife came by our site and talked for 45 minutes Friday night....they are really nice people......terrific and people are very friendly. It is primarily a seasonal campground, but they have a few spots for people traveling through like us. We loved it. They have donkeys, chickens, rabbits. Owner collects old stuff and it is all over their 40 acre property. The property is on the Whitewater River and there is a canoe/tube rental place right there. The only negative for us was no WiFi and no antenna TV reception....because most of the renters are seasonal they have satellite dishes for TV - Discus 277

This is a nice campground, loved staying here hot water in showers, very nice and helpful owners they are constantly updating and beautifying the campground. There is kids playground and river rats business here to rent tubes and kayaks to go on the river, they have walking trails, fishing. It's peaceful here. Would come back. - Bubbles1987

We stayed here in July of 2017. We arrived on a Friday evening and left on Sunday afternoon. We stayed in site 67. The campground is small, but most of the sites seemed somewhat spacious. A lot had nice shade trees. Some of the picnic tables looked like they could be replaced. There was lots of potable water sources readily available. One shower house with showers and flushing toilets. There were "pit toilets" throughout the rest of the park but when we used them the toilets actually flushed but there were no sinks in those so bring hand sanitizer! All of the pit toilets seemed very clean. The shower houses were clean, except for a lot of water all over the floor. A lot of the people were loud but seemed to all observe the quiet hours and DNR drove through a lot to check on things. Front gate woman was extremely nice! We drove down to the beach one day and it was terrible . The beach was flooded and full of trash, there was barely any sand it had all been washed away. There were a ton of boats out on the water though. This campground seems much nicer and smaller than the one at nearby! But do go there to hike some trails. There was a nice bait store right outside the park that sells firewood. The park also sells firewood and ice. - NerdWhoHikes

Quakertown SRA is a wonderful campground. Lots of level and grassy sites. Many shaded sites. Close to Quakertown Marina, where you can rent pontoon boats on Brookville Lake. They have a beach, but there were many geese at the beach. This campground is in the middle of no where. There is a store right outside of the park to purchase essentials and they have hot pizza, if you need a break from cooking. The campground is paved and has blacktop pads, with a big picnic table and fire ring. As in most of Indiana state parks no water hookups. If you choose to camp here I would camp close to the one and only comfort station, as the throne pit toilets don't do much for me. This is always a quiet campground. If you have little one's take them to the marina and get some dog food to feed the fish. - theschuettes

Beautiful, wooded lots. Pit toilets only. Did not see any showers. Must drive to swimming area at the lake. - stephtraveler

I would not recommend this park for motorhomes longer than 38ft. They have placed boulders and light poles on the corners of the site making it difficult to maneuver in and out. Our pad had the sewer drain in the middle of the pad so I had to crawl under the coach to connect. Electric and water were on the wrong side. Very narrow gravel parking area because of the patio and hookups. Many residents work, so you have traffic noise early in the morning. Owners are slowly making improvements. - Westside

Very peaceful. Park is about 30 years old so was a tight fit for our 45 foot motorhome. Owners are working on upgrading the sites. Everyone was very friendly. Not much in the way of entertainment for kids unless they like to fish or bring their own things to do. Nice state parks within an hours drive. Would stay again. - David and Debbie

Thorntree Lake campground is a very peaceful, quiet place, with long pull throughs and gravel sites. Each site has a cement patio and fire ring. The owner, is very nice and made sure our stay was great. The property is well maintained and has a spring fed lake with big fish. We stayed there for several months this summer and will definitely return. - User2306

This is a nice campground for travel trailers, tents, and fifth wheels. This is not a good place for motorhomes. Roads are narrow, gravel/dirt pads. No full service, dump station. - Lizk

We got in late and the woman was very nice about helping us get a site. It was raining. She asked if my husband could pull the electrical cord under the RV because the site was on the opposite side. In the rain? No! We had to go in backward, through a large muddy hole on the site. Then the people next to us had used our electrical and all the water taps. When my husband went to plug into their outlet he got shocked. Wading through mud! We went back to their house and told them what happened and they didn't seem to care. Probably fine in sunny weather, but horrible if it rains and some sites flood. Do not go there if it is raining or looks like rain.
Looked like there were a lot of activities to do there. Nice store if you needed any thing.
Sites where we were are close together, but other areas appeared to have more room between them. Sites have barbecues but no tables. - GMC On The Road Again

The people working the gate were very kind. We arrived without a reservation. They were nice enough to give is a map showing the available sites. They let up drive around the campground, choose a site and then register. The campground is very large with many electric sites. There are also many non-electric sites. I don't think any of the sites have full hook ups. The dump station is inside the campground. The raccoons are very bold! We had one climb onto our picnic table and steal an entire bag of marshmallows!! Seriously, it grabbed the bag and ran into the woods. We got a good laugh from it. This is a very nice park. There is a trail that leads from the campground to the beach. The campstore is well stocked and the fire wood is decently priced. - 4stringdude

Big Rig Friendly! 40' 5th wheel, tow with a Freightliner Hauler - plenty of room. Great park, lots of stuff to do! We were able to go horseback riding without a reservation, walked up and were added onto the schedule. All the employees were helpful and professional. The restrooms could use some TLC. The restrooms would make a great Eagle Scout program - some cost & lots of labor: scrape the concrete walls, repaint, new stall doors, and shower heads. Our site was very open, rooftop satellite hit a signal, local channels were pretty good too. Sprint cell worked fine. The site was paved, included a firepit and picnic table. Roads are paved and well marked. Everyone pays park admittance, even if you prepaid the camping fee. A potable water spigot was within 100', a dump station was available on the way out, 30 amp at the site. - Born2RV

Stayed at this park late in the season when evening are cool. It's a nice little park with grassy sites and a lot of well maintained fields and trails. It is pretty flat which is nice for leveling and strolling around the paved streets. Our site was a little shallow but once in it was very comfortable. Great place for families. The roads wind all around so can be a little confusing but it's small enough that you can't get too lost. - Dennchristen
