Beautiful campground nestled in a valley beside Lake Greenwood. The campground amenities include a full bathhouse, free laundry facilities, and fire rings. There is a small sand beach on the lake for swimming at your own risk. Boat/Paddleboat rentals are also available. Fishing is excellent and a small bait shop is open daily. Definitely a hiker's paradise with plenty of room to roam. Plenty of firewood available nearby in the woods from fallen trees. Campground cleanliness was impeccable. The base has a small (4-lane) bowling alley, tennis and basketball courts, and an excellent fitness center. A small PX and commissary is open with limited hours, usually closing at 1600 during the week and also closed on weekends. There is a cafeteria and a Subway located on base. Nearest notable towns for off-base entertainment include Bedford to the east, Jasper to the south, and Bloomington to the north. Each is approximately a 30-40 mile drive. Highly recommend Stoll's family restaurant, features buffet style Amish home-cooking, excellent desserts, and a beautiful lakeside dining atmosphere. The restaurant is about 12 miles south on Hwy 231. Drawbacks are only lack of cellphone and TV reception. I did receive an acceptable signal from CBS in Terre Haute. Highly recommend you bring plenty of entertainment if you're not a fisherman or a hiker. Don't leave anything edible outside at night because you will be visited by the forest bandits, and be especially careful driving. Deer roam rampant throughout the base.
