This is a great place to camp. There is so much to do in this area. We love the new pool, the hiking trails, the farmstead, nature center and the close proximity of caves and canoeing.

The opportunities for outdoor recreation abound in the O'Bannon Woods State park. At just under 2,300 acres, the state park itself isn't huge, but the fact that it's a part of the 24,000 acre Harrison Crawford State Forest adds nicely to the space to roam. There is an extensive trail system within the park, a fire tower that is open... More

We had a great time at this park today. I don't think the web-site describes how nice this place really is. It was our first visit and had a wonderful day. Nice well kept state park. The pioneer farmstead and nature center were great for both young and old. Wonderful place to ride your own horse. Nice views and picnicking... More

We just drove through, but spoke with the attendant who was very friendly. We are considering coming back and spending time here in the future

I love this park! I noticed someone posted that it is a small park. Well, I don't know what they consider large as this park is 26,000 acres. There are many different areas to explore within this park. The only part that is small is the kids playground. Admittedly it could be larger or perhaps another play area added for... More

We love to take friends there on special weekends when the historic haypress is being operated (oxen and all) and re-enactors are doing demonstrations. Even without that, it is a pretty park with a fine little nature museum and with local volunteers/staff (sometimes in pioneer costume) who seem to thoroughly enjoy educating people. (We and kids like the exhibits of... More

This was actually a state recreational area until they renamed it for former Governor O'Bannon. There's a fee to get into the park. There's a lot of trails : hiking, mountain biking & horse. The horse trails especially are extensive. We hiked trail A from the campground & it was a great trail. We also took trail F which follows... More

We spent the week of the 4th of July at this campground. It was our first experience with Obannon and was a little anxious since we planned on spending 5 days there but it definitely exceeded our expectations. The campsites were wooded and ours was large and roomy. It rained most of the days we were there but unless it... More
