Stayed here 1 night while going to a Reds game. Park was easy to find and access. Staff was friendly and the park was very clean and our pull through site had the hook ups well located. As others have said right on the freeway so a little noisy. Only odd item was in reserving and holding a site in advance we had to send a check in, was told they only take credit cards in person. Would definitely stay here again. - A&M RV

We stayed here on our way home from Nashville to NYS. Only going to stay 1 night but added another night because the CG was so nice. The lady in the office was very friendly and informative. Our site was large enough for our 42ft. 5th wheel & truck. Site had pea gravel and level with a picnic table and fire ring. Sites were large and open facing the small lake all roads were paved. I would recommend this CG and we would stay there again. - CaroleRV

Miami Whitewater Forest Campground is located in the largest park in the county park system. The campground is clean and the new shower/restroom facility was also clean. The park is great and there are plenty of things to do outside the campground. While there, the campground was completely full. I camped in a tent, but agree that the campground is not the best for large campers and motor homes. The spaces are small and packed close together and many are hilly. My main complaint was what was already stated in a previous review. The campsites were all overloaded. 2-4 campers or tents per site with large groups staying in them in addition to having "visitors" come by in the evening. Both Friday and Saturday night, the campground did not quiet down until after 1 am. Saturday I walked by one site that had at least 30 chairs with adults in them and a hoard of children as well. Bright lights, loud music and loud conversation. Not peaceful, not quiet. - Willajean112

Getting to this park requires good advanced mapping and intuition; there could be more directional signage. This park is not suitable for long 5th wheels and motor homes. The park map does not show the steep grades and very tight curves with large trees close to the narrow one-way road. Very few sites are level. Bring plenty of blocks. It was very difficult to back into my site due to the trees and the location of the electric post. Plan to drive your rig to the water station to tank up before backing in and setting up. Heavily wooded. Only electric hook-up. Camping is a long way from the rest of the park which has no place for swimming. The bath house is new, very clean and free. - Osita5

The campground is in a nice park facility with a great play area for the kids located down by the lake. It is not real close to the campground though.
We also had to purchase an annual county park pass to be able to get in ($10.00).
The reason for the average rating is very few of the sites are level. Many of them are slanting downhill so it is hard to get level.
They could use a little better signage directing those who do not live here to the campground and check in. We drove past it the first time and had to call to find out where to go.
Also, even though they have a maximum camper limit of 6 people and two tents (or one camper unit and one tent) per site there were several that had many more than that, one having at least 18 people in it and one with 4 tents.
Their dump station is also located on a hill making it hard to get completely empty.
It is a very busy park on the weekends with lots of tent campers - 3 to 6 tents per site.
I would recommend this campground in certain areas only and during the week if possible. - prstlkid

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

This is a very confusing place if you are staying only a few nights using KOA. The KOA campground sits in the middle of a Thousand Trails membership campground. The amenities have recently undergone an upgrade with a new pool area and clubhouse. Sections of the TT campground are developed with campers permanently on campsites. The campground is gated requiring a key card to get in after hours.
When we arrived we were met by TT folks who were helpful getting us checked in but wanted to sell TT. The KOA staff forgot to give us a card pass for entry into the park after hours so we were locked out one night until someone could open the gate for us. There is a lot of vehicle traffic with both cars and golf carts.
KOA should consider turning their part over to TT. I don't recommend staying here. - Aldeaux

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

The roads we used had a lot of potholes. The fire ring was a bunch of landscaping rocks in a circle. It seemed that there were a lot of "workcampers" upon seeing all the things around their sites. It's a big park. Our graveled site was fairly level. The way the "ranger" took us to our site, i had to place the water and power cord under my rig. - 1dinky

Here for a rally nice campground great staff. nice long pull thru site. Campground is 2 sections one in the woods and one down by the river, wide open no shade but lots of room. The directions I had brought me to a 6 ton limit bridge which of course we are WAY over that, had plenty of room to turn around and go a different way, poorly marked bridge until your almost at the bridge, not the campgrounds fault but just warning folks. We tow with a class * tractor with a 21,000lb 5th wheel so we are well over the bridge limit. - DBLR

There are two sections of this campground, one is on the Ohio River and the other is closer to state route 56 (maybe 3/4 of a mile away). The sites near the office are surrounded by apartments. We stayed on the lower level near the river in site 133. It was very quiet and peaceful. There are no trees/shade on lower level but nice sized sites. There were quite a few seasonal campers in the lower level, some nice some I wouldn't want to be around if they were going down the highway. When we arrived we were in a hurry to set up before a huge storm moved in. Got camper level, slides out, Wheels chocked and that's when we realized we had no power at our post. Had enough extension cord to confirm we had power at the site next to ours. Call the office and 40 minutes later two guys arrived in a golf cart with no tools or anything. While we were waiting for them my dog actually sniffed near the post and yelped. Walked over to see what happened and found the clamp on ground rod loose as could be. I'm assuming he got a small shock from touching it. Showed the workers the clamp but they didn't have any to replace it. Their solution was to just leave my camper plugged into the neighbors post and did offer an extension cord. Luckily our neighbors were friends of ours and they didn't mind. I also pointed out the sewer pipe in ground was broken and had no threads to hook onto and picnic table legs were broken. They mentioned they were slowing replacing all of them as most had been hit by the lawn mowers. This campground has so much potential but needs some tlc. On a plus side they're was fresh gravel on the driveway but the lots could use some as most of our site was all grass with patches of gravel. We weren't offered a different site or any type of refund for our troubles. I would return in the future but would be sure to check for power before unhooking from tow vehicle. - Kyle S

Older campground near river. There are 2 sections - one that is original area, second has river frontage. with fewer facilities. Original owners died recently and the daughters are trying to restore the campground to its previous 'glory'. We visited the weekend before the Fourth of July. Many seasonal sites. Mix of pull-thrus and back-ins. Restrooms are minimal but clean and well-stocked. Lots of shade in the older section. Many activities for holiday weekend. Pool is clean and heavily used. Roads are gravel. Sites are dirt and gravel. Staff helpful and friendly. Passport America Mon/Tue/Wed. Would return. - grandma0942

We got a special deal, stay two nights get third night free. Rate quoted reflects that deal. Very clean park, concrete pads, gravel parking for toad, grass at rear of campsites. We had rain all weekend, absolutely no mud! Utilities locations were among the best we've ever had. On site 15, we had 40' pad with the rear of our motorhome extending beyond the pad over grass which was downhill into a ditch. All utilities were located on an extension of the concrete pad. Very clean utility area. We encountered a problem making reservations, the phone menu program refused to accept choice 2 as a valid selection. Choice 2 was the reservation choice. We finally registered on site. On a Friday this was taking a chance but there was space available. Following the signs to RV Registration led us to a desk in the Lodge which was not attended. From there we had to go to the main desk at the Casino to register and get a site. The casino itself has the look of a failing business, understaffed, maintenance obviously being neglected. The parking lot is huge and mostly empty all weekend long. - LivinTheDream

Rising Star is excellent! Sites are concrete, level and easy access. Well maintained with gated facility. Site prices are fabulous! They offer a shuttle that comes every hour to take you to the casino or a couple of local places. They offer a free continental breakfast to campers also (we did not use) They also offer half price buffet on Mon/Tue for folks over 50. - rbrown5305

This campground offers a full range of campsite choices. The front area consists of pull-through and back in sites, is newer and has full hook=ups and clean, level concrete pads and patio areas. The area has a few trees but is mostly open and sunny. Remainder of the sites are gravel and grass and appear to be mostly spacious and level, some with with views of the water. Most, if not all, have electric only and plenty shade. A single dump station is at the entrance gate. There are great walking / biking trails throughout the park and campsite areas. Overall, a quiet, lovely setting, considering it is within a congested area. Upon arrival, we were in site 14F, a very nice concrete back-in site. We developed a mechanical problem which required us to have to extend our stay for a few days. Although the park was full, the staff worked to find a suitable electric only site (#3). Initial nightly rate was $70 for site 14F, but the fee dropped to $35 when we moved to site #3. Ohio residents, which we are not, get a huge discount. - Revvie

We generally shy away from municipal campgrounds (too tight, inadequate hookups) but this place is a gem. It is part of a very large county park with lots to do and costs $5 a day to come in and out with your car (or $14 for the season). But the campground is excellent, wide, concrete sites, lots of green in between, and full hookups. WIFI is strong, and good satellite reception in our pull through section. Easy to find, well off noisy highways, friendly staff. And close to downtown Cincinnati and all the attractions. We will come back. - alanez

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

The park itself is nice and so is Brookville reservoir. The campsites is where the park is lacking. Tent sites should be separate from other sites. It just makes sense because of what people are looking for when they rent a site. People were running through all sites with no respect for others. Parents should teach their children better. Dogs were left at sites unattended while owners were visiting elsewhere. Yes they were BARKING. This was a nightmare. I was really disappointed. Never to return. - Joe Mallory

We stayed for two nights. Not one time did we see a DNR staff member drive through our loop. The people in the next site, left their dog tied up outside, by itself, while they visited people in a different loop. The dog barked the whole time they were gone(3 1/2 hours). There were people setting off fireworks, after dark. This is a great park, if you like to party and be loud most of the night! - No return

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

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

Great park in loop A we stayed in had 3 restroom /shower areas which was nice on busy weekends. Plenty to do at Park hiking trials, mountain bike trails (fee) pool in season (fee). The only reason for not a 10, is signage could be better directing you thru turns in campground. Most sites in campground A will need leveling some quit a bit, our site was at a dead end easy to get into but if you have a large unit careful planning to go around the cul-de-sac for sites 81 thru 86 looked to be best to go around the right side . The other loops looked to be level but mostly full sun. All sites appeared to be paved in all three campground loops. - Steph and Jim

Park is very nice and there is plenty of space between campsites. Paved roads for walking or bike riding. There is only one water fill station at the entrance and a two way dump station. The line was long especially for the dump station on Sunday. Biggest issue is the bath house in serious need of updating. (See pictures) camping rate at $30 (electric only) and $9 entrance fee to drive in the gate should allow for modernization of the showers. I will go back but would like to see the updates. Lake, nice pool for additional fee, trails. Great park with exception of shower house. - DrBrownie
