Our second time visiting in as many years. This is definitely not the place to go for rest and relaxation. It's a place to go for nonstop activities and amenities. The staff are very friendly and one of them even remembered us from two years ago. The restrooms were decent except for the last day where we found the men's room to be pretty dirty. The water park is the main attraction and lots of fun, however we noticed like a previous reviewer did that several of the water props were broken (I counted around six of them) so I'm beginning to wonder if they really intend on fixing them or just letting it go. It would be a shame if they didn't keep the water park in top shape. The sites are close together and the sewer connection is a little higher than it should be. Also, while the water pressure is excellent, it has a chlorine odor so bring a filter. The camp store / snack stand now allows you to charge items to your site so no need to bring cash. Overall, we had a great time and will probably visit again while the kids are still young. The rate was high due to Labor Day weekend. Normally the rate is about half that amount. - Fdwt994

In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king. There aren't a lot of options in the Bloomington area for full hookup camping. This was our first time staying in this park and we checked in the first day of their season. As such, many of the amenities (pools, activities, etc) were quite limited (but the price was also lower than the 'in season' rate) especially during the week. Our site was level and had good electric service. The water lines were full of air the entirety of our stay and remained cloudy. I can't say for sure if this was the source, but I became quite ill (Giardiasis) as we were leaving the park for our next destination. The newer sites in the back offer better more room between sites and privacy from the rows of campsites near the front. The office staff was friendly and attentive. I'm assuming that once they are fully staffed for the Summer, the grounds will be better maintained. They have an infestation of dandelions and could put some effort into this area. Overall, not great, not bad....average. Like I said at the start of this review, there aren't a lot of options in the area so get ready to pay premium prices for average accommodations. - RVhappyHere

Jam-packed resort type park with activities all weekend long. There was never an issue with the kids running out of things to do and the characters (Yogi, Boo-boo, Cindy) made several appearances. There was even a live band Saturday night! Camp store was nice with the essentials and plenty of souvenirs. Sites are typical private park arrangement; close together and no privacy. There are a few individual trees throughout the park but even the "wooded" sites don't have trees in between them or any real shaded sites. Make sure you have sewer hose ramps due to the sewer inlet on the ground being slightly uphill from your site. I was also taken aback by our neighboring site. Although they were pretty quiet (except Friday night, when they were outside talking past midnight), there was always four cars at the site and I counted 14 camp chairs. I thought there was a maximum occupancy per site? The bathrooms were clean but honestly the showers were not cleaned as aggressively as at a Yogi Bear park we stayed at last year. The staff was mostly friendly however a couple of the kids working the front desk seemed indifferent. None of these issues are what I would consider a big deal but you expect top-notch service when you pay $66 +tax a night. Overall we had a great time, but there is room for some improvement. Nonetheless we will be happy to return. - Fdwt994

Our first impression was walking into the office. It was shabby and looked like it had not been vacuumed in some time. The girl helping us was very sweet but seemed to have a difficult time getting us set up. We did have reservations. Getting to our site was tight with narrow roads. The whole campground was uncared for. It seemed like there was no pride taken by the owners or by the many permanent residents. Pretty much all the spaces were taken with permanent residences with old run down RVs with blueboard insulation and other makeshift insulation making the place look bad. Again, no pride seemed to be taken in appearance. Our site was a pull-through that seemed to be for overnight and short stays. Muddy and small piles of dirt, long grass and weeds everywhere. We would pass this campground by if we were in the area again unless it was an emergency. It is a shame as the campground has great potential with a little work and pride from the owners. - MaryVT

I stayed at Free Spirit for a week. The rate reflects PA rate. This campground is not big rig friendly. There are trees very close to park roadways in several places. Negotiating the roads both coming in and leaving was difficult. In addition, the sites are no where near level. You should plan to bring plenty of levelers. If I were to return to this area I would try one of the nearby state parks. - 15243

No WiFi, many seasonal campers. Pull Thru available, but small roads to drive and a lot of trees. Some level sites. Campground need some upgrading and paint. Overall: not to bad for one or two nights, beautiful surroundings. - Traveller Excel

This park has very roomy sites and even though other campers are around, its design makes it where they are not right on top of you. We have really enjoyed out stay. Only planned on 2 nights but staying another night. The drive to Nashville is not bad. - terrilou

This is a beautiful park nestled in the woods. Our site (204) was easy to get into with our 41' fifth wheel. I would give it a 10 except for two problems. The first and biggest was the site is very sloped left to right. Our curb-side tires are 8" off the ground! The other problem is that the table and patio are on the driver's side. It is very quiet and peaceful here. A lot of the sites only have electric. We had a hard time parking our truck off of the road. - winnie1

Beautiful park in Hoosier National Forest. The sites are well separated by trees. Lots of shade. About half the sites have electric, a few with water. No sewers, but there is an easy access dump station that fits 2 RVs simultaneously. We have a 40' fifth wheel, and quite a few sites fit us in. Also, about half the campground is reservable, the other half is first come, first served. There is a nice beach, and a boat ramp for Lake Monroe in the park. Also 2 rustic cabins. Campground is kept very clean and hosts are great! - fun2travel

If you’re interested in listening to midnight drunks screaming expletives and loud heavy metal rock this is the place for you. If you want to camp with a family or kids, go somewhere else. We are stuck with no other options since we are traveling through and it’s Labor Day weekend. - DaveO_VB GDsponsor

Hard to get to, through small residential areas. Very expensive. People were not very helpful.
Not recommended for an overnight stay. - HHitch

Huge state park located on Monroe Lake about 10 miles SE of Bloomington. Interior roads are in need of repair and maneuvering can be tricky as cars, trucks and boats encroach into the campground roads from sites. This is a very popular boating/fishing area and the crowded campground reflects this. Price paid does not reflect the additional $9 entrance fee we paid at the gate.
Many sites were very close together but maybe it appeared that way due to all the vehicles parked in/around them. Our 30A, electric only site was level, nicely wooded and roomy with a paved pad, concrete patio, picnic table and fire ring. We did have some "lake views" through the trees. All sites are electric only but there is a dump station near the campground entrance/exit. We had no OTA TV and no Verizon service.
The bath/showerhouses were typical concrete block but were relatively clean (except for some spider webs in corners). There were also some pit toilets scattered about as well. There's a playground, marina with boat rentals and also a campstore that has groceries as well as camping/fishing items. - leaf peeper

We stayed 3 night during the week. With over 200 camping spots I counted only 12 campers using the campground during our stay. We had a nice view of Lake Monroe. It was peaceful and quite at this time of year, but I'm sure that in a few months I want to be no where near this campground as it is very popular with families and boaters. Lake Monroe is a beautiful lake with marinas and swimming beaches, it offers great boating and fishing. They have a camp store on site but for real shopping Bloomington is about 10 miles away. As with most all Indiana State properties they charge an entrance fee on top of the camping fee. - Psi500

Focusing on just the campground, and not the beautiful Monroe Lake property, this property just gets 'average', although it borders on poor. A prior review from years ago referenced bad roads and potholes inside the campground. Well, they're still there; the roads are terrible. This campground is old and tired, but it gets packed every weekend, because of the fact that it's adjacent to the lake. You'd think Indiana would spend some of the increased camping fees to fix the aging campgrounds.
Many sites have some sort of lake access or lake view, and others have only a short walk to a nice view or access. The 2-cars per site rule isn't enforced, and some people are camping in horse trailers and box trucks. Many of sites are not level, so trust the online booking when it indicates slope. Our site was listed as 'gentle' slope, but it sloped front to back AND left to right. It's also referred to as a 'gravel' site, but this site (nor any others) hasn't seen fresh gravel in years. Some RV sites looked like tent-only to me. Our AC was having a hard time keeping up after the campground filled up, due to an overloaded electric system. I'm guessing that the electrical system gets overloaded, as many of the RV sites are used by 20-amp tent campers with multiple crock pots, lights, etc. For $30 for electric-only sites, this campground isn't a great value, but daggone-it, we'll go back because we love the lake.
It is sort of fun to people-watch here, as it's sort of like going to the county fair. Things quieted down pretty nice after about 10pm, though, even on Saturday night, so even though it's a zoo during the day, you can still get some rest.
There is a marina on the property for boat rentals and various basics and sundries, and a little larger store at the park entrance that sells fishing gear and beer/wine/groceries. - fastalker64

We stayed in site #42. This park is booked solid on weekends, beginning on Thursday, up through November! The site was directly butted up to another site, but we didn't have neighbors until Thursday. All sites in this loop are separated by small patches of growth making it fairly private. We were actually right next to the shower house and didn't realize it until the ventilation kicked on. We could barely see it from our site. Some of the sites, including #42, can be tricky to get into. We have a 30 ft fifth wheel and this site proved to be a challenge for parking only because there was a large stump across the street that would have done damage to the truck or camper. It took several back up attempts, but once in, the site was almost completely level. Water and electric were very close and easy to hook up. Site is gravel....very small pieces that get stuck in your shoes, but just a minor annoyance. The loop we were in was wooded with amazing tall trees everywhere! There is another loop with full hookups but the tree cover is sparse. We were completely surrounded by trees and sunlight was filtered. We took the short trail to Twin Caves and Bronson Cave. Kind of disappointing because you couldn't get very close. The park offers boat trips 500 ft inside one of the caves, but we weren't interested. These caves are easy to get to but require lots of wooden steps to access. The real gem was Donaldson cave. This trail was more difficult in terms of stairs and length of trail, but well worth it. Donaldson cave was gorgeous and enchanting. We had it all to ourselves, but didn't have a flashlight to enter. Water flows out of the cave into a beautiful creek that eventually leads to Spring Mill Lake. If you are in decent shape for steps, definitely check out Donaldson cave. We really enjoyed our time here and would stay again, but in a different site. (Sites on the loop circles are more secluded than interior loop sites.) - mercgem64

Very busy park on the weekends. The camping area is very hilly making approx 75% of the campsites not level. We reserved site 50. It was so steep (camper was 17" off center) that I could not begin to level my 5th wheel. The park staff came to my rescue and moved me to site 59. So choose wisely when making reservations. The sites are spacious but offer little privacy. The sites range from full sun to full shade. There is no internet or Verizon cell service. I would not stay here again. - Poe Dog

This a very nice park with lots of great hiking trails, caves, pioneer village and nature center. Like all state parks in Indiana you have to pay an entrance fee to enter the park on top of the camping fee. This campground has only 30 amp service and our site had water. With the outside temps in the 90's and only partial shade on our site it did get quite warm during the afternoon. The park has a nice swimming pool, but we did not get to use it as we where busy checking out all the park has to offer. - Psi500

Very nice, clean park. Campsites range from totally surrounded by trees to full sun/grass. There are three camp areas: Buffalo Ridge (mostly grass, very little trees, ie parking lot. Easy to maneuver with big rigs). Raccoon Ridge: wooded area mainly for smaller trailers. Taylor Ridge: heavily wooded. The park has a 5 mile long narrow, winding, wooded stretch from the entrance to the furthest campground (Taylor Ridge). There is a water fill station as you leave park office after registering. There are also "drinking fountains" throughout the park that have hose connections to fill your trailer. If you can get one next to your site it's a bonus! The turn-arounds at the end of each loop are tight (I was in a longbed w/40' fiver) so I recommend following the map closely to avoid the missed-turn hassle if you are a larger rig. Consider backing down your loop if you are a larger rig. The park is huge with several hundred campsites but it is very clean and quiet. Leaves changing this time of year is spectacular and the park is booked accordingly so reserve early! Local Fall break started 10/7 that helped fill the campground. Verizon was good. - starcraft35

We have camped hear for many, many years. Beautiful, well kept state park in southern Indiana with lots of activities to entertain everyone. We always love coming here. Cell signal/data for Verizon was awesome, but I don't know about the other carriers. Bathrooms are well attended throughout the day. Campstore is fairly well stocked, but going into town gives many more options. Nashville, IN is loaded with cute stores and good food so if you are looking for a something different, then great place to spend a few hours. - Sarar

All RV's and Vehicles towing Trailers MUST use the park's West Entrance off of SR 46 two miles west of Nashville Indiana. Nice scenic 5 mile drive from main entrance to camp area entrance. Site #307 was at the very back of the camping area. Listed as moderate, we had quite of bit of slope and were just about to the max on lowering the front of the 5th wheel. Bathhouse was clean and one of the better ones you will find at a state park. Our site had leaves covering the ground which helped. If not for the leaves it would have been bare ground/mud. They tried to spread some fine gravel but not near enough. Limbs NEED TO BE TRIMMED as it was touch and go to get in the site without damaging the roof or air conditioners (5th wheel 13'5" tall). We really liked the area as it had enough traffic to keep it interesting. We like to people watch! Our neighbors were friendly and helped us back in. You really feel like you back into the forest to camp which was very cool. 50 Amp service, 4 different dump stations, (we filled with water from home). This is an active camp area with a lot of sites. Gigantic pool, Inn is really nice, bike riding and trails are awesome. Camp store is crammed to the hilt with stuff, they need a bigger building for sure. Be sure to bring a blower to clear the leaves from your slide outs, etc. We will definitely be back, we had a great time. Staff at the entrance shacks were very friendly and helpful. - Coltsfan3378

Stayed at site 46. 75% of sites are in decent shape. The others leave something to be desired. Make sure you drive through before picking out a spot. Some secluded spots. They have 2 peninsulas with very nice spots. Bring an extention cord! - 94dutchman

There are a few site with full hook-ups but not many. There is no swimming pool, but there is a beach front for swimming. Plenty of kids riding bikes and adults driving modified golf carts. Very family friendly. The weekend we were there they had activities planned for the whole family almost all day. Very roomy sites. We will go back! - sfrye5853

For $75 a night one would think it would be more than just a paved parking lot which you back up to the utilities. There is a grassy spot behind the sites with 1 fire pit and 2 pergolas. The check in process is time consuming as you have to check in at hotel and wait till some one unlocks the utilities. They do offer trolley service, so you don't have to walk the long distance to the hotel. There was a $100 deposits that was refunded at check out. There is a small creek running next to lot that has an odd smell. - Okie girl

No improvement since our last stay here 2 years ago, but they increased the camping rate significantly. For a whopping $75 you get a bare parking lot space. There are FHU, but the water spigots leak all over the electric box. Hotel staff fumbles with RV reservations, and the check-in process is clumsy and time consuming. After you hike to the hotel to check in, you've got to wait for staff to unlock all the utilities on your site. French Lick and West Baden are wonderful resorts, but the RV Park lacks amenities and is overpriced. Shame. - Flying Mantis

French Lick and West Baden are wonderful historic hotels with beautiful grounds. However the RV Park is not in sync with the rest of the property. For $60 a night I expected a lot more. The camping area is a back row of an outer parking lot with no landscaping and no privacy. Twelve lines are painted on the pavement which were supposed to designate the dozen RV sites advertised. But if 12 rigs parked here you wouldn't be able to put your slides out, the sites are that close. So French Lick gives you two sites when you register, which means there's really only 6 RV spots with hook-ups. Services are located in the rear, too far for our sewer hose to reach. Behind the service poles are a couple of bench swings under small pergolas with a community fire pit between, which was the only nice touch in the whole camping area. A historic train runs alongside the RV park and blows its whistle at the nearby crossing. Shuttle busses will stop at the RV Park for transport to both hotels and the casino. Walking from the RV Park to the casino is not far, but there's no dedicated sidewalks and the shortest route takes you around a rear loading dock which was a bit unsettling at night. We've been to French Lick many times and always stayed at the wonderful hotels. This was our first time in the RV Park, and I was surprised at the scant amenities and lack of thought put into the camping area. For the hefty fee that's charged, there's much room for improvement. - Flying Mantis
