Positives: This is a State Park; mature trees abound. The park is adjacent to the Ohio River and the town of Metropolis. Being in a park, it is relatively quiet. Even though you are in a park setting, you are very near eating, gas and shopping venues. Metropolis also hosts a casino on the river about a mile from the park. The rate is very reasonable.
Negatives: Other than the electric, you are pretty much boondocking.
This is my hometown, so I enjoyed staying here because I could visit my grandchildren. My unbiased view is this is a nice quiet park that would be nice to visit for a weekend or a week.
