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. We camped at Brookville Mounds State Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

What a nice state park. We stayed in the C loop which is full hookup. Sites are fairly deep and wide. Paved pad was at an angle to the road so it was very easy to back into. The electric only sites were mostly empty but also have paved parking pads.

Showers and restrooms were clean and abundant. Utilities at the site worked well (the water pressure was a bit low at 25psi).

We had very good AT&T 4G LTE coverage and OTA TV from Dayton and Cincinnati was good.

We stayed here while visiting our son at Miami University which is just a bit over 20 minutes from here. We camped at Brookville Mounds State Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

We camped in the full service area. We fished and really enjoyed our stay.

The web site states level sites but you need several blocks to make the trailer level. We camped at Brookville Mounds State Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

We visited the Mounds SRA full hook up loop. Was very easy to access our spot even when crowded. No issues at all and the lot size was very nice and level. Every DNR employee we met was very friendly and helpful. The camp store is very well stocked with just about everything you could think of and reasonably priced. The boat ramp is very close and the beach was not a far drive. We camped at Brookville Mounds State Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

We camp here about once a month in the full hook-up "C" loop. Each site is large enough that we have our trailer, a screen tent, our bass boat and 2 vehicles. Each site also includes a picnic table and fire ring. Almost every site in the "C" loop has at least one tree. This campground is well maintained and very clean. There is also access to a camp store, a beach and boat ramp within this campground. We camped at Brookville Mounds State Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

Beautiful state park. Very family friendly and many people camped in tents. Only a third of the sites have full hookup but others have 50 amp power. The weather was hot and humid but the lake supplied a refreshing change. We would stay here again. We camped at Brookville Mounds State Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

The camp sites are the largest sites we've ever seen (and we've camped in quite a few states over the years). There were several large trees for shade but did not hamper anyone's ability to back into the sites. The sites are on a large 'loop' and the inside of the loop is all nicely mowed for a big open area. We were right across from the 'host' site and they were very friendly. The entire campground was very clean and very well maintained. We would highly recommend this campground and intend to return. We camped at Brookville Mounds State Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

We loved this State Park. The sites are large and spread out so you aren't camping on top of each other. This was camping with full hook-ups. Nice alternative to RV parks. The full hook-up area did get busy over the weekend but never full. On Sunday afternoon you could watch the tail lights leaving the park and during the week there were only 5 or 6 RV's in the full hook-up area. The park is clean, pretty, and helpful, friendly staff. We will stay here again. We camped at Brookville Mounds State Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for five nights, beginning on a Saturday. It was fairly crowded Saturday evening but with the large sites, it was quiet enough. The sites are indeed quite large. We had room for our 25 foot trailer plus a large tent, plus the provided picnic table, plus all our other gear. The campground was impeccably clean. Staff was very nice. The beach was a short drive away, but what a beach! One of the nicest we've seen at a lake. The only negative thing I can say is that there were more trees needed at the beach. Other than that, everything was wonderful. Don't miss the fishing area with dock before you get to the beach. Wild cranes and other birds can be seen, and it's quite serene. We will definitely be back. This was one of our best camping trips ever!! Oh, and don't miss nearby Metamora. It's like stepping back in time. One thing to remember about visiting Metamora, it's best to go there Wednesday thru Sunday. The town has few open shops on Monday and Tuesday because the canal boat does not run. You are also just an hour away from two different casinos, so if the camping life gets boring, you can go there! This is a great area and so beautiful. We camped at Brookville Mounds State Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

This is one of the best campgrounds in the state. The beach and campground was well maintained and the staff was friendly. The sites are large and most sites have decent shade. The design of the smaller loops creates a quiet setting even though this is a larger campground. We are planning our next trip to this campground already. We camped at Brookville Mounds State Recreation Area in a Tent Trailer.

We were very pleased with this park. It is well maintained and the check in people were friendly! Even though it was late in the season, we enjoyed the beautiful surroundings. There is a nice beach, although it was closed for the year. Our full hook up site was shaded. There is good fishing in the area and marinas where you can rent boats. The camp store was not well stocked, but there are several grocery stores and restaurants in the towns nearby. We will stay here again!

We loved this campground! We had never stayed there before but we will definitely go back! The majority of the sites were excellent! We stayed on site # C56 in the full hookup section. We felt this was the best of course! The park was clean, attractive and had well placed trees to give you just the right amount of shade at each site. The sites were also huge. We camped at Brookville Mounds State Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed in the full hook up sites, which are very nice, most have good shade, and a lot of room. This is a nice campground, with lots of sites, it has a well stocked camp store, and a boat ramp for the campground only. There is also a very nice beach, which is not really inside the campground area, but it is inside the Mounds area. It is a little far to walk to from the campground, but is a very short drive. This is one of our favorite places to camp. We camped at Brookville Mounds State Recreation Area in a Fifth Wheel.

Excellent State Park camping experience. All sites spaced nicely with paved, mostly level, back-in spaces. The full hook-up section seems to have the most shade. Easy access to the lake with boat ramp for campers only and picnic area on the lake. Camp store, playground, and hiking trails. Price listed was for a full hook-up site on weekend rates. Prices lower on week days and for electric only sites. We camped at Brookville Mounds State Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.
