Ruth - I found out about this campground on the Indiana DNR Web site, and I camped there in May 2005.

Campground Review

This is a brand new campground. The sites have electric, their own water and sewer hookup, are wooded, and most of them are level sites. The electric only sites are all level, but they are out in the open although the state has planted a lot of new trees and bushes. The sites were also quite roomy with a gravel surface. The fire rings were on a raised concrete pad. This state park has a living history museum with a 1920's working farm and Indian village. It is less than two miles from the Tippicanoe Battle Ground. It is also just outside Lafayette, and it is probably less than 10 minutes to the Purdue campus. The restroom facilities are very nice, and it didn't seem to matter what time of day you went to shower as there was always hot water, even on a holiday weekend with the campground at capacity. There is also a very nice paved bike path, which runs beside the main drive through the park, but it is separate from the drive. We thought it was a very relaxing trip. We have decided that this will be one of our favorite nearby camping spots.
