Camped there for 4th of July weekend. We were at the primitive site 218. The sites in the primitive area are all gravel (our kids brought scooters but unfortunately couldn't ride them). Some of the sites on the interior are close together but ours was nice and private. I loved the trails! We went thru Wolf Cave and the falls. I can't wait to go back!

Stayed there 2 weekends ago. It's Indiana's first state park & it's 100 years old! The campground is well established. The interior sites are very close to each other. Some of the peripheral sites are also. We were at site 22 & had site 21's tent right behind our trailer. Watch out for pit toilets & dumpsters.
The trails are OK. 2 rated strenuous, trail 3 & 10. Most are just strolls through the woods. Wolf Cave is on trail 5. Kind of fun to go through if you don't mind getting your clothes dirty. The waterfall is on trail 3. Trail 7 takes you above the canyon & loops around towards the White River. We saw a bald eagle there.
There's many picnic areas & shelters. Good for a weekend I'd say.

Great place to take the family, with several hiking paths that are easy enough for small children.
