8 RV Parks near North Vernon, Indiana
Sep 2017 - $28.00
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

A old campground with services for your trailer such as water, electric and sewer are very different from what a newer campground would have. I had to buy an extra 25 feet of water hose to allow me to hook up to my fresh water location at the mid point on my trailer. I now have 5o feet of water hose. If you camp their for the first time make sure you have enough sewer and fresh water hose to make your connections if you have a mid-point service bay like a lot of 5er's have. - Jim W1

We stayed here for a Rally. Had a great time. Appreciated the Fresh Gravel on our site. Our site was more unlevel than usual due to the Park being on a slight Hill. - AL RVer

Very clean and spacious campground with plenty to do. Only complaint we have is no cable and over the air TV was poor. Most sites are not satellite friend. WIFI was very good where we were. Site 229. - bcarroll2552

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

I was in town for a week working. They allowed me to check in late Sunday (2:00 am). The road going in is narrow but wide enough to get through (not a deal breaker). The sites are well laid out and easy to back into. I had full hookup, good water pressure and 50 amp electric. Wife LOVED the pool, very well kept and clean. I will definitely be back the next time work brings me this way. - TimNDeanna

This is an RV Park which is close to I-65 but accessed via a very narrow road. It is heavily trees and gravel roads and sites. While clean it has many full timers who do not keep up there units or sites. We were first assigned a full service site, #72. The trees kept us from backing in our 37' fifth wheel. After several tries we asked to move to a pull through with water and electric only. It was level and clean. The fire ring was a semi wheel and picnic table was very old. We were able to get some dish channels via a tailgaters unit. This park is difficult for larger units. Overall good rating but would stay somewhere else if nearby park was available. - Columbus340RK

The woman at the desk when I arrived was friendly and helpful. I had no problems finding my site. The campground publicity notes that this is "heavily wooded" and that is true. I didn't have any problems navigating but you do have to be aware of the trees as you are making turns. I would suspect that those who use satellite might have a problem with the trees. I don't, so no problem for me. There was no sewer on my site but the water and electric worked fine. I never could get the wifi to work. The site was level, and getting out of my pull through site was very easy. The next time I come to this area, I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. - MFTDoc

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

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

This park is just OK... nothing special. You pay an entry fee just to get in the park. The bath house was convenient, but needs some updating. As usual, no hooks in the bath house, or shower mats/benches in the showers. - Dennis D

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

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

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
