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.

We probably chose the wrong trail but we walked along the river and it was nothing but trash. We realize there is flooding but some of the trash and the severity of the amount gave pause as to just when was the last time they...More

It's close to Louisville but makes you feel like your miles away from the city life. Campgrounds are very shaded due to all the trees around the campgrounds. We had perfect spots with 81 & 83. It was near the water spigot if we needed...More

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.
