We’ve had the pleasure of camping in this area several times, and it is our #1 pick for a state-owned and operated facility in Indiana.

When we camp at the Mounds State Recreation Area campgrounds, we enjoy watching so many larger families gather for camping activities and fun under the sun. Yes, the additional guests are required to register, and they do pay extra as expected. But it’s always nice to know that this friendly facility accommodates large groups of family and friends. And they allow RVs and tents on one site. (One wheeled unit and one tent, as well as a dining fly is allowed per site OR two tents and a dining fly.) If your group is large, we would strongly suggest making reservations well in advance and procuring camp sites adjacent to each other.

The campgrounds are always clean and free of rowdy behavior. We can count on the campground hosts and park personnel to keep things well under control to ensure the camping experience is enjoyable and peaceful.

The campground is located in this expansive area of forestry, within driving distance to the beach facilities on Brookville Lake. This campground provides large campsites, lots of open grassy area for recreational games and smooth, paved roads. The restroom facilities are generally kept very clean.

The services and amenities within and outside of this recreation area are just too numerous to list, so please visit the DNR website for Brookville Lake and discover the offerings.
