I stayed here for a couple of nights on two different occasions. The parking pads are all gravel and are pretty wide and deep. There are a number of pull-through spots. Full service is available. Many sites are more private than others, the ones towards the back are more open and non-private. The bath houses were clean, but the hot... More

We stayed here mid-week as a one night stop and wow we were amazed! This is one of Indiana's newest state parks and it appears that they want to keep it looking that way! The park is very clean and well maintained. There are amenities here that a typical state park does not have. They have an aquatic center /... More

We absolutely love this campground! The sites are large (in the 100 section) and my husband LOVES having full hook up sites. The sites are nicely spaced and private. We last stayed at site #167 which is close to the entrance and playground. We haven't been back since they opened the water park, we are going back next week. Honestly,... More

This is a new park, and the sites are spacious, private, and naturally landscaped. As previous reviewer noticed, sites nearest Comfort Center have less privacy (e.g., trees) though they still have great space. Many sites unoccupied (because folks are just discovering this park!), but that made for a peaceful, quiet environment--and a great place to walk our dog! Great playground,... More

We camped for 2 nights and had a great time! We were the only tent people there. The bathroom facilties and showers were nice. The kids loved the playground areas and the water park was great! $3 a person for the water park is a bargain. I was impressed with the bathroom/changing area as someone was always in there cleaning... More

We stayed her in,our travel trailer to visit our nephew and family in the area. The park was quite, but it was early in the season. They have bathhouses that were clean, and the showers had hot water. They do charge you a day use fee for the day plus your camping fee, but only charge the day use fee... More

One of the best state parks in Indiana. Very quiet and very well maintained. The lake is very nasty over grown seaweed. Will definitely be returning. Camp in the front very private campsite. The back seemed very open not a lot trees.

Does this place look boring at first glance? Yes. Is it? No - this place is fan-freaking-tastic for active people who want to bike, walk, and let the kids/dogs burn some energy. My husband and I bring our two year old and our dog in our camper. We exhaust those two, then have a few beers around the fire after... More

Whoever wrote the "better than a toothache" review hit it spot on. We also ventured to the Cracker Barrel near by. If you're looking for a quiet stay that caters to your Camper, this is your place. Otherwise, nope!

All told, this park benefits from its lack of use. Being relatively new and certainly off the beaten path (an award should be given to those who can actually find it), Prophetstown is in good condition. Bathrooms and such are in great shape (they better be since they're never used) and the campsites are spacious enough. The problem is the... More
