The vibe at Charlestown Campground
Drop some Charlestown Campground knowledge on us.
This is a nice campground with excellent hiking trails. One of the newer state parks, est 1990s. It's on the Ohio River. We had site 143. That site & the sites to the left are nice little areas tucked into the woods with lots of brush for privacy. Some of the sites are full hookup, which is a rarity in Indiana State Parks. Reserve early for those. As always, watch for pit toilets & dumpsters.
The trails are wonderful. There are 7 of them. Trail 7 to Rose Island is easy. Trail 1,3,4 & are rugged.
Boating is also popular, with a boat ramp on the Ohio.
