Very clean facilities, Wish they had water at the campsite. I would definitely go back, no problem. The aquatic center in the park is a plus! Not crazy about paying 9$ for entering after paying to camp, but i understand. They do keep it nice.

Be prepared for ticks if you plan to hike and use a repellent. The park is well-maintained and an evening drive thru will usually let you spot many deer and turkeys. One drive thru in early winter, we saw over 30 deer.

After visiting both Squire Boone Cavern and Indiana Cavern we wanted to finish our day trip with a stop at this park. We didn't get to the park until 5pm because we got lost on the way but once we got there we had quite a bit of fun. We went mainly for the pool and it did not disappoint.... More

We spent last weekend (July 4) at O'Bannon Woods with our grandchildren. We camped in the family campground "A" True to it's word, there were about a zillion kids and bikes there, but it was great. Hiking trails were terrific, as was the pool. The shower house and restrooms were unbelievably clean. We're actually thinking about going back again this... More

Just wanted to walk a bit after driving all day. The attendant was extremely helpful and very friendly. Map was clear and our hike was worth the short visit. Wooded, beautiful and a good workout.

Stayed at O'Bannon Woods campground over the busy Memorial Day Weekend. The campground was full, but most of the sites were wooded and fairly spacious. It didn't feel crowded despite the campground being filled to capacity. I would suggest choosing a site away from the playground/restroom area in section A, however, if you want a quieter camping experience. There were... More

O'Bannon Woods is a great place for an afternoon picnic and splash in the pool. The pool area has a large, shallow area with spray guns and minislide for the smaller children. The larger pool has two slides. One is a curvy covered slide while the other is a tall drop slide. Plenty of lounge chairs for the sun-enthusiast and... More
