Summit Lake State Park, New Castle, Indiana

This state park is about an hour east of Indianapolis. We used it as a quick stopover on our travels. The park is in the middle of nowhere and is a big attraction with lake activities to stay cool in the summer months. The lake is quite large and boating, swimming amd fishing are quite popular. The park rents out boats,
pedal boats, and canoes if you come without your own. There is a dock and boat launch available. Day use is also popular here. The campground has two main loops, both with spots along the lake. The first loop has a section of wide open sites (#1-24) in a grassy plain. Few trees spot this area and it can get beastly hot here with little to no shade. These sites are big rig friendly, however. All sites in the first loop are fairly level and easy to navigate. Sites closest to the lake are heavily wooded and have lake views. The second loop has sites which again are mostly lake front and shady. All sites have dirt pads, picnic tables, fire pits, and hookups.

Best Sites: 38-42, 44, 46, 48, 51, 93-98
