We visited in early November but the temps were still in the 60s during the day. The park was beautiful with the changing leaves. The campground was exactly the way we like it. Very quiet and peaceful. A surprising number of campers off season, but...More

May have been bad timing, but was rather disappointed with the place. Nature Center was closed, even though it was supposed to open. Area where you could see Ohio river seemed to be neglected and run down. Horse camp ground was about the only thing...More

We were in the area on business and went to the park to walk around. We didn't camp there so I can't review the campground, but the park was clean with nice views of the river.

The local schools start on July 28 so the pool is only open on weekends. The closest body if water is Ohio River, but don't recommend swimming. Corydon has a public swimming pool. Patoka Lake has a nice beach.
