11 RV Parks near Madison, Indiana
Jul 2018 - $30.00
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

1. Horrible Bathroom/Shower (that you have to leave a 5.00 deposit to get a key). The conditions of the facilities is not acceptable. I wouldn't take a shower here even if I hadn't bathed in weeks. Water dripped on my head, from the ceiling skylight, as I used the toilet. Just BAD! 2. Standing water and mud everywhere... our campsite flooded with a small shower. 3. THE CRAZY bright street lights over every site... blaring all night long!!! Really, this is not camping! 4. The spaces are so tight that you can reach out a touch the campers next to you... our neighbors started slamming car doors at 6:15am on Sunday morning. Once I was awakened, I started counting... 40+ door slams before these idiots pulled away and left. Simply unexplainably rude!!! I know this is not the campgrounds fault... but, this shows you what kind of visitors you'll find here. Pro: The camp host was nice and tried to help us with a good attitude. - Clayton Turner

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

Very nice state park campground. Spacious sites with gravel pads. Asphalt interior roads so nice for riding bikes. Electric only sites which is pretty typical for Indiana State Parks. Stayed for 3 nights during Madison's annual Chautauqua, which is a very nice arts and crafts festival. Several nice hiking trails within the park. Our site was very level, but not so true for some of the other sites. - Daryn

We arrived on a Sunday for a two night stay and had to pay $9.00 entrance fee after we paid about $30.00 a night on reserveamerica.com. The park is beautiful but were informed that the waterfalls weren't running since they need rain. Our site was level but next to a dumpster. We were also informed that we needed to fill our tanks with water since no water is at our site. The restroom/showers were very outdated, buggy, moldy and dirty. The showers and sinks had a system were you had to continually hit the button for water to come out. Shower had no hot or cold options. We rode our bikes to pool area and sign stated $3.00 per person. This park really nickels and dimes you everywhere. We liked the wildlife and enjoyed the fire flies in the evening. - JESUSisLovefl

A little difficult to locate, but getting in park and site was no problem. Blacktop streets with concrete pads. Full Hookup, no cable, no local stations. Was not able to get WiFi to work. Campground very large and clean. Driving from interstate 6 miles, but was not a problem. We reserve over the phone, reservation made, no check-in required. We camped here in a 42 ft Motor Home. Site was large enough and patio tables were like new! - Guidry's

This is a beautiful park; long, wide, level concrete sites with concrete patios and picnic tables. The only reason I rated them only satisfactory for service is because reservations must be made either on-line or during the day since the phone rings into the city building and is only answered during business hours. There is no cable and we were not able to pull in any stations by our antenna. Wi-Fi worked well once you got through the hassle of downloading their program to check for anti-virus. All utilities were conveniently located and worked well with plenty of water pressure. Our only complaint is they have a two-dog limit. We foster and rescue tiny dogs and never know for sure how many we will have with us at any particular time. I really hate these restrictions because I don't understand how three or even four small dogs could cause as much disruption or make as much mess as two 70-pounders. We will definitely stay here again any time we can meet their pet restriction. - SandyA

This gem has become our home away from home in the summer. Beautiful campground nestled right on the banks of the Kentucky River. Sites are concrete and level with concrete patios. Full hookups right where they need to be and super clean. It's a fairly new park with a LOT of pull-through sites and several back-ins. Our favorite sites are the back-ins that are overlooking the river. I've always paid in advance on their website or called the office as there's nobody on site that I've ever seen. Every now and then a City of Carrollton truck might wander through (the park is city owned) but that's about it. No hassles whatsoever. Carrollton has several good sit down restaurants, a Walmart and a Kroger, so almost anything you'd need is just a few miles away. If you're feeling adventurous, take a trip across the bridge to Madison, Indiana where you'll find more mighty fine eating establishments, antique shops, cafes, etc. - sixtires58

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
Sep 2017 - $32.00
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

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

Big Rig Friendly! Stayed in our class A, 45' motorhome with tow. Plenty of space, easy to navigate, pretty level concrete pads, full hook ups, picnic table, fire ring. Many sites back up to a large pond. Pool was closed for the season. It rained the 2 days we visited, so we did not explore the area all that much. Staff helpful. Office hours seem a little limited. Nice clubhouse. Casino nearby and a shuttle will pick up. Would definitely return when in the area. - 2SimsNanRV

This campground is in a flat open field in a country-like setting. Pads are fairly flat concrete for parking and patio areas. Although located on a main road, park was very quiet. We only stayed one night on our way to Tennessee. Rest rooms/sh. - Revvie

Big rig friendly! All sites are long and level with concrete patio. Front section is open and sunny with limited landscaping between sites. Back section is along the woods and is a little more private and quiet. Pool and bounce pad are available to entertain the kids. Paved trail through the woods will entertain your dog. There's a big clubhouse which would be great for rallies. Nothing to walk to in the immediate area, but Belterra Casino has free shuttle service that runs until 1:30am. Did have a 30 amp breaker issue, but maintenance was quick to respond. This would be an excellent CG choice to tour the area if you have another vehicle at your disposal. - Flying Mantis

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
