First time using our new teardrop camper and McCormick's Creek campground was perfect. Helpful staff, hookups were easy to use, close to the shower/restrooms (but not too close). Park is very clean and well-maintained. Other campers were very friendly and helpful.

This was our first time camping at McCormick's Creek. Beautiful park with great trails. We camped in the rustic tent area. Great area with a decent amount of separation between campsites. Pit toilets in this area are, well pit toilets. The camp ground did appear to mop this area once or twice a day. The trails are great. We hiked... More

I had never visited McCormick's Creek State Park and went just to have a bit of a getaway. I found this park to be beautiful.. The creek was thundering when I was there due to several days of rain. It was wonderful to see the power of nature and its beauty at the same time. The trails are wonderful some... More

My family and I stay at Mccormicks creek sometimes for semi local getaways. We always have fun and in the past the staff has been nice and accommodating. This is a big reason we choose them as there are other drawbacks that lead us elsewhere sometimes. These include lack of fire rings, lack of indoor activities in times of bad... More

When we drove up to the lodge, my DH remarked, "Are we staying in a mental institution?!?" Indeed, the lodge at McCormick's Creek SP is a former sanatorium. You'll recognize the design: back in the 30s - 40s there must have been some master blueprint every state used to build these things. Inside, the management has done quite a bit... More

The restaurant used to be outstanding years ago. NOT now! I had a business lunch last week that was really terrible! Their special of the day was fried fish. I ordered chicken tenders, mashed potatoes with white gravey, and broccoli. The chicken was smashed so flat that I thought for sure they had brought me fish. It had a weird... More

Two weeks ago my daughter and son-in-law had the woodsy early fall wedding they wanted at McCormick's Creek State Park. Although they no longer live in the area, they have many friends in Bloomington, and the location in southern Indiana is midway between the bride's family in Virginia and the groom's family in Colorado. Between the accommodations at the Canyon... More

this state park has some of the prettiest hiking trails. we've learned the prettier the trail usually means its much more than an easy hike. Many of their trails are more moderate than easy, but definitely worth it. Be sure to take some good hiking shoes with you. The campground is also pretty nice, some of the sites are a... More

This reveiw is about the park itself. We have not stayed at the Inn, or camp grounds. McCormicks Creek is just over an hours drive for us, so it's a great place for us to get away for a day of hiking. The trails are clean, wide, and well marked. Wolf Cave Nature Preserve, Trail 5, is one of our... More

McCormick's Creek is one of our favorite spots to camp. The park is very well maintained and clean. We stayed in the campground during the week so we were one of only a handful of people there. The sites are nicely shaded; however, there are some with very uneven surfaces which makes setting up a little tricky. Other than that,... More
