The campground's most redeeming quality is its location which has an excellent view of the Ohio River. Unfortunately, the park is under funded and its shower house/restroom are literally falling apart, most of the site pads are not level. The city recognizes that the view has value since they have raised the fee from $25 last year to $40 this year. - Dan Hughes

Very pleased with this city campground. The view of the Ohio River and bridge is outstanding - CG is just a few yards from the river. Head-first motorhome parking is permitted so you can see the river out your windshield. The sites are a bit close together, but parking is angled so adjacent rigs won't spoil your view. Paved pads are narrow and there's a slim margin of grass between, but the back side (river side) is wide open. You may need to double up power cords or water hoses to reach the pedestal depending on how you park. Night time lighting is subdued - not harsh as other reviews have complained. The CG is located on the east side of the bridge on a quiet residential street. A short walk beyond the bridge will pick up the lovely paved river walk, part of Madison's park system. Downtown is a few short blocks away, easy to walk or bike. Golf cart rentals are available at the marina at the far west end of Vaughn Drive, but it would be a hefty hike to get there. Really enjoyed this city park for its river location and proximity to downtown. It's not a luxury resort, but it's more than adequate for a couple of days to tour Madison. - Flying Mantis

This park is located in a closer area to all the attractions that are available to see in town. We were able to have WiFi, which made it easy to help navigate town. We paid a $5 deposit for a restroom key, which I did not mind as it kept transients out, it was refundable. We were told that showers were nothing to write home about at the start. They were acceptable for showering. We have a class A and were told we could either pull in or back in depending if we wanted the view or not. Would return to this campground as the view is worth the price. - gypsy561

The park is beautiful and one of the best in Indiana. Perfect for rugged hiking and bouldering. Be prepared for rough terrain and beautiful views. - evervescent

Would give a 5 but no WIFI available. Campsite was very large and grassy. Shower house had push buttons on the water faucets, but they were clean and convenient. Water could have been warmer. Very quiet. Park was nice. - Happy Campers from IN

Great place, huge pull thru's, a bit off the freeway but really worth it. Check in very tight turn, I pulled into the park and they came over and told me my site. GPS took me another way and did not go to the park. Look at the map to insure you get it right. I used exit 44 and went through town. - Sunshine Express

This city park is only 7 years old. It is one of the best laid out, site-spaced and maintained we have come across. Must have been designed by a camper. All utilities were great, including wi-fi. The only thing missing was cable and that is minor. Roads are asphalt, site parking areas are concrete with a patio addition and new-looking picnic tables. Also have fire pits but it was too warm to want to sit outside even at night. Good shopping nearby and the town looks like it is surviving very well for a small town. Be sure to approach it from Exit 44 off I-71. The other exit your GPS might bring you to leads to a long pretty narrow road which has construction narrowing it to one lane right now (and it looks like it will be for a while). We would definitely come back here again if in the area. - Grumpier99

Great RV Park. Big rig friendly. Clean and well maintained. Checked in/out over the phone! We stayed 2 nights in a 38' 5th wheel. We did not use the bath house or laundry facilities. Nice walking/bike path from CG by the river all the way into town. - Hornbuckle

Some sites not level. Beautiful area. Only stayed one night. I would recommend this campground. - FrankVeronica

We are in a 40' motorhome and, with our tow vehicle dropped, we could not make the turns at the ends of the loops without some back and forth. Water hook-ups are a bit far from the pad but provided excellent water pressure and nice tasting water. No cap on our sewer hook-up. Several sites that would work, but many sites too short and unlevel. Roads and site surfaces in good condition, large parking lots near park entrance were an easy place to drop our tow vehicle. - SilverBus

Camp site loops are not adequately marked with warnings for big rigs. We were in a 35' and were almost stuck navigating a loop. Satellite reception was good at site 65. Dump station was convenient. We didn't use the WiFi so can't comment. - lovingthervlife

We've stayed here numerous times, and have never had an issue. Most sites are level and easy to get in to. Plenty of hiking, fishing and boating for the family. Plus, the beach has an area for swimming in the lake.
Electric only, so make sure your water pump is working properly! - Griffin226

On a positive note the lake is beautiful and the playgrounds are nice. However camp host did not keep dog on leash and it came barking and growling at my 3 year old. We had to pack up and move campsites because the 2nd day 4 families showed up and set up 5 tents in the same campsite beside us. There was no peace. The bath houses are old and need updated badly. The girl at the front gate was very courteous and the DNR officer that gave us a trail map was great, and very helpful. Probably will not return as there are too many other state parks in Indiana that are much nicer. - patch2361

Our first stay here and will definitely return. Very large sites, most if not all of the sites are level with some shade. Lots of water faucets around the campground for fresh water. Several nice trails on the property, large lake w/ boat rentals, playgrounds and on-site naturist providing fun activities for the kids. There is also a raptor rehabilitation center on-site that is open to the public. - zenasboy

This is a nice little park in southern Indiana. There are only about 8 sites that can accommodate large rigs. But they are relatively spacious and nice with full hookups. The smaller sites are in the woods, and are also very nice for small to mid-sized trailers and tents. Almost no one was staying there the Sunday night we stayed. That made it very private. Bathrooms were dirty and we didn't use the showers because of it.
Park staff are only available Mon-Thurs. But we were able to book the site the next day by asking for a call-back on their voicemail. The campground and park access road is a little narrow and curvy for large rigs. So we disconnected and drove the car ahead to watch for traffic - maybe not totally necessary. - EVO_Bob

While $32 is an excessive amount of money, the rv sites were very close and the restrooms were very dirty. It is handy and just off Rt 50 for an overnight, but not good for much more. Access road coming down to CG is narrow and twisting. Even though the CG is posted as a "fee"area and not accessible to the general public, there was a lot of traffic, both foot and vehicular, through the CG area that did not appear to have a reason for being there. I would be hesitate to park and leave my unit there unattended although several people appeared to do so. - hartk

This is a County Park with only the first 8 sites as FHU pull thru's. The entire park has only 30 amp service & the rest of the sites after #8 are water/electric only. The park office & manager are not always open. Manager can be somewhere in the park at any given time. There is a camp host at site #9 but, if you're a first timer (like we were), you won't know this. We were lucky as we were just pulling into the parking lot, the camp host was just driving out, there was no one in the office. He escorted us to the entrance & campground. Also, DO NOT enter the park from State Route 7. The roadway from there into the camping area is very steep, narrow & winding. Enter from S. Gumm Street (residential), follow signs to the campground & site #9 to find the camp host (if you don't already know your site number). Once set up, you will find a very quiet, serine campground that is very well maintained. There is lots of playground space but, no pool or close swimming opportunities. Sprint cell service is "OK" and OTA Tv is available from the Louisville, Ky area & satellite reception is easy from the first 8 sites, the rest are in the woods. - rracer5

I was hesitant about staying here after the only other review was very negative. I found some reviews on other sites that changed my mind since it was just for an overnight. It is owned/ran by an elderly couple that seemed very honest and hardworking. There had been a lot of rain lately and they wanted to be sure that my 45 would not make ruts or get muddy. The wife and a permanent resident took their time to lay large squares of plywood for turning into the site under my back wheels. They also where there first thing in the morning to use them on my exit. Great service! Is is mostly permanent residence but very clean and friendly. $20 cash only for payment. Very convenient to interstate. - WayBro

Everyone should avoid this campsite unless you are in dire need of rest. When you first pull up and are in front of the office there is this large mass of wood and trash that surround the stop sign. I thought that was a little strange. After getting past that, I walking into the office/laundry room which was filled with filthy junk. Upon waiting for one of the owners, outside I noticed sticks and bleach bottles hung everywhere inside and around the traffic cones that line the small roadway's inside the campground. I made the comment to my husband that it looked like something from the Blair Witch movies. The reason for the one star stems from the woman that owns the place. She is extremely rude and has no knowledge of how to help or talk to people. Our rig is 40ft. While the lots are fairly sizable, getting to them can be a little tricky. The awful lady owner that supposedly "helped" us had no idea how to guide us into the site. She had us going around the the drive (which is quite narrow) to get us into the spot she chose for us, all the while yelling at us in a very mean tone about what to do. I told my husband we could have done a better job if she'd would have just stayed out of it. I was so annoyed at the lady owner, I was asking my husband to just leave. Then the man that owns/runs the place showed up. He got us safely into the space. If it wasn't for that/him we would have left. I was so upset about how the lady owner treated us that I couldn't wait to leave this campground. I will say that once we were parked and setup, the grounds were okay. Nice shade trees and picnic tables. Even with the few things that we thought were amiable, they are not enough to compel us to ever go back again!! - BB31

We stayed here for the first time and absolutely loved it. The pond was fun to fish in, the kids had a blast on the bounce pillow, it is all good and flat so the kids rode their bikes a ton. The sites were really nice, you have a concrete patio and driveway. - Wheatsjourney

Very friendly staff, no shade anywhere in our section, paved roads, poor internet and NO AT&T service of any kind anywhere nearby. Long Level concrete pull thru sites but they are very narrow with the concrete patio place for Class A's or a mid door 5er. Nothing to do anywhere in the area except the Nascar track. 16 miles to WalMart and phone service. Nothing except a Pool for the Kids, you must drive to Carrolton, Ky 16 or so miles away to shop or use your AT&T phone. - danny 285

A great park to stay at to relax and enjoy the quiet countryside. The staff was very friendly and accomodating. The sites are level and large and the streets are paved. There is some shade but the trees are not mature. There is a large clubhouse with some games and a pool table. The pool is heated and was always busy on the weekend. The only drawback to the campground was poor internet when the park was full and there is no AT&T service (Verizon was fine). - rockfarmer

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 park is about 15 miles off of I-71. It is on a winding dangerous one lane country road with many sharp twists and turns. A truly nerve racking drive after several hours on the highway. When we arrived at 6 PM there was no one around. Some sites were closed down for the winter. We had to search for one with water. Store/reception run down. The nicest thing about this campground was the signs directing to the park. Once there it was down hill fast. I would never stay here again. - murph164
