One of our favorites . We’ve gone many times and will go again. Bathrooms are good. Full hookups are good, but electric only is nice too. Bike paths are really great. Visit the farm and the Native American village for something to do and a bit of exercise. Tons of playgrounds. Beautiful view of the river if you go far enough on the bike paths.

Peaceful July 4th 2018
Lot 135. Level. Shady. FHU.
Beautiful park. Easy to get to off I-65. Go the speed limit getting back to park. Alot of S curves.
Our lot seemed to be only fhu where the neighbors were very close.
Water park-$5 for adult for day
Small farm, visitors center, native American village, bike/walking trails, 1 full updated bath house in camping area.
Overall, it is beautiful and worth a stop doesn't have a lot of amenities but you are close to Lafayette to pick up what you need

Beautiful, Peaceful, Clean Park!
We spent several nights during the week at the campground, taking in the beautiful untouched prairie land views along the paved bike trails. We saw, but did not use the fishing pond, amazing waterpark (off-season hours), as well as the great playgrounds, and terrific picnic areas, complete with large shelters. Our campsite had full hookups (excellent condition) as well as a fire pit, picnic table and morning shade from the beautiful tall spruce trees surrounding our site. Each day we were there, we were serenaded by the birds and the gentle prairie breeze. The only reason its not perfect os that it's a distance to the shower house and modern restroom. However, we loved this place!

Great Park Highly Recommend
Prophetstown has the most activities of any place to camp. 10 miles of paved bike/hiking trails, really nice aquatic center (water slide, lazy river, kid pool) fishing pond, and a working farm to step back in time to see how it was. Sites are 1/2 full hookup, 1/2 electric. Nice bath house. My only negative is I was was surprised how dirty the bathhouse was. State parks are usually spotless, but not here. They were not nasty, just not as clean as other parks.

New Summer Destination
This was our first trip to a Indiana State Park and we've been missing out. The aquatic center is great for the kids. Lots of paved trails for walking, running, & biking. Also, lots hiking trails where no bicycles are allowed. The campground is great. One half (55 sites) are full hookup and are very private with just about each site bordered with heavy vegetation. The other half are electric only and is more wife open. Numerous full service bathrooms located throughout the park which are kept very clean. We are already planning a trip back here for next year.

Beautiful state park with lots of things for the family oriented. Many trails to walk, hike or bike. Lots of green space and the sites are good sized with trees, shrubs etc. Full hookups (which on the west coast, is rare). Be sure to look at the football schedule due to many people stay here to watch the games. Also, if its in October, the midwest is big on camping and Halloween, weekends can be packed.
Mapquest takes you right in there. We stayed 10/2015 in a 40' motorhome with no toad.
