We went to Obannon Woods State Park near Corydon two weeks ago and had a great time. Fully wooded camping area. Also have been to to Patoka Lake a couple of times.
The IN state parks I've been to did not have water hook ups so you to fill your tank.
130 miles outh of you Patoka Lake, a state campground on the lake. Been there a couple of times, it is nice, but the sites do not have water, so you use your tank.
I'm making a first trip to Obannon Woods State Park near Corydon, IN this next weekend.
Agree with preferring COE parks for the reasons stated, but I haven't seen many in IN.
To get a quick look of campgrounds in an area I use US Campgrounds Info.
Do you have to go thru the inspections like trucks do when you take an RV thru a military base gate?
I have not been inspected when going onto mil installations. Not saying some won't do it, but none of the 4 bases I've stayed at in the last 8 months did.
AF bases only needed to see my ID. Navy wanted ID, ins and issued a temp pass.
The fort Knox family camp (Camp Carlson) isn't within the cantonment area so there isn't a gate to travel through.
Stayed at Cherry Hill last year, during my kid's spring break.
Nice park, full amenities. It can be a bit load, it is beside an interstate (I'm in a Hybrid), but nothing too bad.
Easy access to the Metro, either via bus that stops at the gate, or drive two miles to the metro station, we did this based upon the park staff suggestions. You can also purchase Metro passes.
I havent been to that state park, but most KY parks the money goes to the golf course and the lodge, not the camp ground. Because of that i usaullt stay in the near by COE parks.
Just down the road from Nolin River is Dog Creek, a COE park i highly reccomend. It isnt very large, the sites are fairly level and graveled. They also have large spacing between them, unlike most KY state parks. It is were i go when i want some place close to home to get away from it all. Also, there is Wax Rec Area, heading there this weekend.
