This is a very small loop campground. Our site was fairly level but the electric and water were very far from the site we stayed on 39. Have to have an extension to reach the electric. We arrived on a Saturday during the battle reenactment and had nonstop kids and adults cutting through our site, which is annoying but there was really wasn't any other way for them to get to the playground except cutting through sites. The lodge was not far by car but the hills it was very hard to get to by bike. Some people had golf carts which would have been really nice here. They had mini golf, a pool and a few hiking trails. We are not big into plants but they have a very rare plant called the short's goldenrod that only grows here and very few places in Indiana and it was very easy to spot. Overall it's an okay place for a short trip but I could not spend more than two nights here and we went with more than usual going on with the reenactment. The staff here is very friendly. - Homesweethome

We stayed in site 38. It had water and electric hookups. We had to use extensions to reach both. The site pad is blacktop, and the rest is a mix of grass, dirt, and small gravel. The site backed up to the playground, basketball court, and bath house. We chose it specifically because of its proximity to the playground. This made it easy for me to watch the kids play from the camper. The play area is very nice. Site 38 had trees nearby, however with the way the sun set, we had very little shade. I would recommend site 36. It was very shady. The campground was VERY full and busy. There were SEVERAL children running/biking/hover boarding around the loop. We most likely will not camp here again, just because it was so crowded. The picnic table was wood, and it rough shape. We sat on towels to prevent splinters. - JustinandJulie

Upon arrival, no one was in the check-in booth, but we were able to find our site and set up without a problem. This is a small state park, but it was well maintained, family friendly, and clean. Sites are all paved, but range from level to severely off grade. We have a bigger RV, 37ft, and didn't have any issues maneuvering through the park. The campsite is a giant loop with the bath house, playground, and basketball court in the center. There is a pool in the park that was a short 10 minute walk from our site. We got great cell, Verizon, and 4G service. We picked up a fair number of local TV channels as well. As a family that likes to hike, we thought the trails left something to be desired. They were well maintained, but short and choppy. We didn't use the bath house, but did scope it out and it appeared dated, but in clean working order. There are tons of scheduled events and activities on Fridays and Saturdays we enjoyed as a family. We only saw a park ranger once during our stay, but never had an issue with noise or rude neighbors. Everyone was very friendly and welcoming! We will be back soon! - WeisnerFamily4

Out of 160 sites, only 18 or 20 currently have electricity. The park is managed by Thousand Trails, and one of the hosts said that next season more electrical sites will be available. It is a good road leading to Zilpo. Lots of sites are on the water. It is a beautiful park, very clean. The restrooms did not have showers on loop D where we were, but a sign on the door indicated were the showers were located in other loops.other than the Canadian geese and boats, there was little noise. The lake was low during our stay due to some dock construction, but that did not deter the fishermen. We loved the place and look forward to going again. Many little cabins are available to rent, so it would be a nice gathering place to include family members who do not "camp". There is a spacious beach for the campers. - Doxie Mom

Relatively long drive (19 miles) from Salt Lick to the campground, very curvy, narrow road, but great on a motorcycle. Friendly, courteous staff; clean facilities; sites well separated; water view(not all) but ours was; all rest rooms do not contain showers, but each loop does contain a shower house as well as a rest room. Very quiet. Small store stocked with a few essentials. Our rate was $16 nightly with Golden Age Pass. Had no issues with ticks or mosquitoes, but was hot and humid, as should be expected for mid-July. Would definitely stay here again. - mailman01

We love this campground! We started camping here in a tent years ago and now in our travel trailer. The camp hosts are very nice and helpful. The sites are gravel and very large. Trees completely surround you giving lots of privacy. We will camp here again and again. I would have a rated Zilpo a 10 if water sites were available. - User578
