City Park, Madison Indiana

We had a grueling travel day yesterday.  Left Rising Sun's Little Farm on the River around 12:30 and arrived in Madison about 2pm...LOL!  My kinda of travel Day.  We had made the decision to follow Highway was scenic, but it was another twisty, narrow country road.  Fortunately, there was little traffic and the road was in good shape.  The campground we are staying in here in Madison, Indiana is called "City Park".  It is a small, no frills campground, but it is only a few blocks from the historic downtown area.  Here are a few photos......
Here we are, as you can see the sites are close together, but we have a nice level asphalt pad and plenty of lush grass around us.  Hookups consist of water and 30amp electric only.  There is a "bathhouse" and dump station.
This is the rear of our site.  Behind us are a few, what used to be, pull throughs.  I think, now they are primarily used for "off street" parking.  This place was not built for 40 foot fifth wheels...LOL!  So, they had us use this area for parking our truck.  The street does has some traffic, but not enough to bother one with any street noise.
This is a view of the campground from it's one and only street.  I think there are about 20 sites available.  The "river side" puts you right on the Ohio river, but we have a great view from our front door.....
This is the payoff....what a view!  If you decide to check this place out, I would call ahead....especially if you have a larger rig.  We are paying $25.00 a or check only.  Camp host is a real sweetheart of a guy, actually took a photo of us upon check in to add to his collection!  Even though this is a somewhat "tight" little campground, we had no problem backing into our site. may want to check this campground out next time you are in Indiana!  I thought of you immediately when we pulled into this place.
Next post, I should have some photos and info on the historic downtown of Madison.  We did a drive down main street and I am looking forward to seeing more today. 


  1. Definitely looks like a place we'd like. We love to find those kinds of treasures - at least when we're not pulling the boat. The boat takes a lot more work to get parked.

  2. I grew up in Cincinnati and loved the beautiful view of the Ohio River and across to the KY hills. I think the Ohio and the Snake River in the west are the two most beautiful rivers in the country! That's only my personal opinion though. Sometimes I miss the Ohio/KY/Indiana area you are in.
