Spot between Indiana Dunes & Cincinnati?!

Looking for some input on Campgrounds between Cincinnati & Indiana Dunes!? Looking at Prophestown & Potato State Parks, but unsure of any hidden gems?! Going the first weekend of June (2-4th) then headed to Indiana Dunes for Sun-Tuesday! Wanted to make it a longer trip for my girls (Twin 5y, Twin 1y)

THanks, EJ

We like Potato Creek, and on the way home you might consider Brookville Lake if it's not too close to Cincinnati. Another one of our favorites.

I grew up in east / central Indiana, and, well, not much exiting going on there or a lot to see (other than corn and soy bean fields). Was back there last year, and stayed at the KOA in Richmond for convieinience. It was actually a nice place, but unless you "need to be" in that area, no reason to stay there.

However, Hueston Woods State Park near Oxford, OH may be a viable consideration. Last time I was there had to be 40 years ago..... We vacationed in the cabins and campground and did a lot of sailing there from the mid 60s to mid 70s. The campground "was" nice, but that is based on being there as a kid and a Winnebago Chieftain would be the "king of the campground. The lake was nice, with a big public beach, and rental boats etc. I posted a question about Hueston Woods campground last year (thought about stopping there after Richmond) and did not get a glowing response to the current state of the campground, so not sure about whether it's worth a stop or not; were on the last leg of a long trip, so just decided to skip it.......

I remember when Brookville (IN) Lake (reservoir) was built, but don't remember much about it. Also Whitewater (IN) State Park is in the area.

There is a very active "Indiana Members" thread under "Just Conversation" that you may want to post for suggestions.

Prophestown is a favorite because it is beautiful.

They also have a water park.

Make sure you have reservations.
