    Absolutely LOVE this campground. This was the 1st campground we went to when we got our travel trailer. The sites are level, fairly shaded, and has growth in between sites that offers privacy. They have a great playground and are close to a wolf preserve and Purdue University. Has both full hook ups and electric/water. It is a newer campground and the facilities look like it. Can't rave enough about this place!

    Nice Park. There are sites right on the river or back in the woods. There are some private sites but most are open and large enough not to feel crowded. There is a covered shelter and a clean bathhouse, but it can be a hike from some of the sites. There was an old pit toilet for emergencies.
