Our second time to visit Mounds SRA at Brookville Reservoir. We stayed in the FHU section again, and it was fairly full. The rest of the park (electric only) was sparsely populated in mid-September.

Electricity was out for about 3 hours on Sunday morning, they got it fixed. Water was out for a while, too, 'cause someone backed over a water spigot and it needed dug out to repair. Service was fairly prompt in correcting these issues. Even still, water pressure is just so-so.

Lots of OTA television channels from both Cincinnati and Dayton, fair 4GLTE signal on ATT.

Sites are large and are asphalt paved for the parking area. There's a large open field in the interior of the FHU site section C, that's used by campers throwing footballs, playing soccer, etc. Overall, it's a pretty quiet campground (or, it was this weekend), and most of the campers/rvs there are pretty nice. Nobody was camping out of the back of a box truck.

The shower houses were awful the first time we went there a couple years ago, but the state did some upgrades/updating to them, according to the DNR website. We didn't use them this time, so I can't say if they did or didn't work on them.

The lake is nice (I caught a nice catfish ;-), but requires driving from the campground (unless you're a VERY ambitious hiker). The camp store is large and well stocked, interior roads in the park are wide and easily navigable. There are marinas for boat rentals in the area. Brookville is sort of a quaint old town, just a few miles away. Metamora was formerly a very touristy little village about 20 minutes away, but it has deteriorated over the last decade.

Mounds is one of the few state parks in Indiana that has full hookup sites and paved pads. For that reason, we do like it, but $40 is too much, really, so that rates it only a 'satisfactory' for us, in terms of value. We camped at Brookville Mounds State Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

Very large state campground. It was not busy during May but it gave evidence that it can be very busy with boats and multiple vehicles during the warmer months. Restrooms and showers are older and well used. While they are kept relatively clean, they are not in very good condition and could be updated. One wonders how they must be during a busy time. We stayed in the one loop of full hookup sites. While the parking spot is paved, the living area is not and shows signs of heavy use. During our stay it was wet and the living area was always flooded and/or muddy. We first stayed here 35 years ago and the trees have grown up nicely. We camped at Brookville Mounds State Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

Our first time at the Brookville Lake area. There are three state-park campgrounds around the lake and we chose Mounds SRA. The park is beautiful, the beach is very large and very clean. There are multiple areas to fish from the bank, boat rentals, and lots of trails through the park. The campground is very large, but only a one area with full hook-ups. The rest are electric only. Our site was in a high-traffic area, but the place quieted down pretty nice after about 11:30. Lots of kids and families and lots of activity through the park. Great camp store, too! We love the park and will definitely be back. The only thing that is poor is the quality/age/condition of the shower house. It's pretty well worn down and could use a remodel or a rebuild. The staff tries to clean it, but the chipping paint, old fixtures, and broken shower doors are not 'cleanable'. We camped at Brookville Mounds State Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.
