We just stayed one night on our way home to Canada. we called in the afternoon and were allowed to arrive after hours and pay the following morning which was very nice.
We picked this campground specifically because it had a 9.5 rating from Good Sam and this was important to us. We were very disappointed with the showers - they looked as though they had been constructed in the 1950s, with painted rough-sided plywood and 'handyman' special finishes. the shower head was about 1" in diameter and you had to press a button to start the water which then lasted 10 seconds until you had to press it again. there was no way to change the temperature either. the water from the shower could not be directed very far from the wall so you ended up having to stand against the wall to get wet. the pressure and volume of water was not great either. The showers/toilets are unheated so feel damp. I did not think they were particularly clean either - the cheap white wire shower caddy on the wall was rusted in many places.
We did not use any of the other camp facilities but it was pleasant enough.
we do wonder how the ratings are achieved - we have stayed in many other Good Sam parks that are 9.5 rated and they are much much better.
We stayed here for an overnite while on a trip from Florida to Michigan. It is not easy finding campgrounds that are open this early in the season. The owners live on property and they could not have been nicer.
We had a nice large pull thru site with good wifi signal. We did not use any of the other facilities as were were not staying but overnite and the weather was cold.
This seems like a great campground for spring/summer/fall stays and we would not hesitate to return for a longer stay.
This is a clean, well kept RV park. The weather was starting to change so it was not that busy as people were winterizing their RV's. The owners are very nice and work hard at upkeep. Our space was 100' at least and easy to get into. The only complaint I have is that the street you take to the park (sky view) is very narrow with a island in the middle. It is not conducive to making a wide turn. I would definitely call the park and find a different street to take into the park. I will recommend it and stay here again.
This place is always welcoming by the facilities and the people. They treat all campers as family. I have found this campground relaxing when I need to get away from the 7 day a week grind I have in Indy. I enjoy the hiking path the have along the perimeter with White River on one side as I am an avid birder
The only negative is not being able to use our mat in front of the camper. I do understand their reason for the regulation as they want to keep the grass green and presentable for all campers, therefor this is not a complaint.
This park is roomy with lots of hiking trails, but doesn't live up to the 10 rating. I'd give it a 7. Many permanent sites with all their "stuff". Some grass and some gravel sites. Friendly, helpful staff. Park is quiet. Poor Wifi. No cable and TV reception is spotty. They don't want mats on grass but there is not enough gravel.
