Small campgrounds in Indiana

I am looking for suggestions for TT friendly campgrounds in Indiana. Just the wife, me and the dog, so not looking for the larger family friendly areas. We would like more secluded and scenic campgrounds. we also like to fish so some on lakes would be nice too. I have been on the RV review site, but that seems limited.
Thanks!

We are in Indianapolis, so anything within two to three hours would be nice. We want to do several three and four day trips this summer,

Thanks

There's a nice county park in Parke county called Waveland, good fishing lake, The bathroom facility in the campground leaves something to be desired, but theres a new one closer to the primative area, Waveland is between Turkey run and Raccon lake, no sewer hook ups or 50amp service

White River is OK, but it was fairly crowded and sites are close together...IMO.
Patty and I like Prophetstown State Park near Layfette. Sites 100-169 are the best with good separation. Browns County is good in the off season. Those are close. We like Pokagon State Park north of Fort Wayne, it has fishing too! Shades has peaked our interest, but we are not sure we would fit. I believe the sites are all non- electric.

We haven't explored too far, having lived in Indy only two years.

We live out in our old van. Travel all across this land. Drive until the city lights dissolve into a country sky, me and you - hand in hand.

X2 on Prophetstown, especially the sites Tom and Patty mentioned. Quiet yet close enough to West Lafayette for anything you'd need. See my REVIEW & PICS.

We stayed at Brookville Lake last summer (haven't gotten round to a review or album yet ) for a few nights. Although we did like it, it's quite popular & busy with all the boaters that camp there. Sites are good sized but not as private as those at Prophetstown.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

Charlestown State Park in the southern Indiana area is very nice and secluded. They have full hookups. Nice big sites.

Here's one in Rantoul, Illinois. 129 miles from Indy. Very nice and also unique. It's owned by the city of Rantoul. We always stop on the way home from a yearly trip out west, and then it's a one day drive to KY. They don't have a website.
