This RV travel park offers gravel pads, sewer, water and 20, 30, and 50 amp power, no more no less for $30 cash. The ease of getting in and out was amazing. The quiet of the country was appreciated and we really enjoyed watching the goats in the pasture next door. We will definitely stay here again. We camped at Northgate RV Travel Park in a Motorhome.

Very convenient overnight stop traveling on I65. $30 cash or check, no credit cards. Just the basics, FHU 50 amp, all pull thru sights. Very easy to maneuver gravel roads and well laid out gravel campsites. Plenty of room between the campsites and they are long enough for any size rig. Quiet at night. Good WiFi. AT&T cell and data were good. WalMart just 1-1/2 miles down the road. I would definitely stay here again. We camped at Northgate RV Travel Park in a Fifth Wheel.

No restrooms, no showers, no real attractions or amenities (unless you count the goats and chickens you could see in the next field), no discount available, and CASH or CHECK only accepted, but otherwise, clean, long enough and wide enough sites. It's a field, not far from the Interstate, but there is a dumpster on each end of the park and the staff are friendly enough. The park is conveniently located for visiting family in the area, or an overnight on the way to somewhere else, but I wouldn't consider it a destination park at all. WiFi was free and unsecured, and relatively consistent. We camped at Northgate RV Travel Park in a Motorhome.

Fair price for the basics. Easy to get to off the freeway, with level spots, good water, sewer and electric. Not much more to say than that. LOL. Highlight of our overnight stay was "Mary" the owners dog. She is about the sweetest thing ever, and loves, loves belly rubs!!!

For those that use a portable DirecTv sat dish, there are two high voltage lines that will make it impossible to get a signal on your Genie of anything better than 22%. We had to climb up and put our dish on the roof of the RV in order to get a good signal. We camped at Northgate RV Travel Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed here as we were going to visit the Rocket Museum. The woman that was in the office was very friendly, and the grounds were very clean. The big surprise was when she told me that there were no showers or rest room facilities. So for $30.00 cash or check you do not get much. No rest rooms, no cable and so so WiFi. I would not recommend this camp to anyone. We camped at Northgate RV Travel Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a great overnight stop. We stayed for 3 weeks while visiting family in the area so had the weekly rate. WiFi is good to poor at times. Good power and water pressure. Far enough from I 65 to be pretty quiet. Close to stores and places to eat. We camped at Northgate RV Travel Park in a Motorhome.

We tried to stay here for one night on our way elsewhere. They were overfull and gave us an "overflow" site with no sewer and no wifi. Yet they did not offer a discount, so we left. If they had offered a discount we would have stayed.

We could not see much of the park because we arrived after dark. It was easy to navigate to our assigned site, which between the office and the main road. The site itself seemed to be okay for an overnight stay but the wifi did not work at all in that location. We camped at Northgate RV Travel Park in a Travel Trailer.

Talk about bare bones, this park is just a place to park for the night, no more. The spaces are good with electric, water, sewer and WiFi, but you must be self-contained as there are no bathrooms or showers. Cash only, no credit/debit cards. It is clean but also subject to highway noise. We camped at Northgate RV Travel Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is an adequate place for a night on the way to somewhere else. Pros: level, easy in and out, utilities worked well and were in the right place, WIFI worked fairly well with my signal amplifier, but was a little slow, wide open for satellite TV connection, no rules. Cons: If it hasn't rained it is VERY dusty; had to crawl on the ground to see if the electric breaker was on or off and to hook up electric cord; cash or check only (openly prefers cash) - no credit cards; do not honor any discount cards; owner is a bit cranky; no map; no rules; no site numbers; no picnic table. We camped at Northgate RV Travel Park in a Motorhome.

Walmart parking lots get old fast! This place was so easily accessible off I-65. It was a simple park run by nice people with QUIET, neat and level sites. Best of all, they had plenty of sites to accommodate our 45' RV pulling a 24' trailer. We absolutely recommend this place for a good, safe layover. We camped at Northgate RV Travel Park in a Motorhome.

Located at the end of exit ramp 354, the Northgate RV Travel Park is a no-frills (except WiFi...more on that later) overnight or short stay park. All sites are FHU pull-thru at least 100' long. Pedestals have both 30 and 50-amp (didn't look for 20-amp) but are pretty low to the ground. Excellent water pressure (owner said 70-psi but I measure 60-psi); pressure regulators recommended. No RV shade to speak of but there are some trees and bushes. Park is well kept, clean and very quiet. The only 'extra' is WiFi which has a strong signal throughout the park but uses WEP security which is very easy to hack so we used our Verizon hot spot (5-bars inside the park). All sites are $30 per night, cash is preferred but checks are accepted. Owner is very friendly and helpful but if you arrive before or after the small office is closed be sure you self-register and pay before choosing a site and setting up else you risk a late night or early morning knock on the door. This is a very nice park for overnights or short stays. It's sits adjacent to a farmer's field. We've been here twice now and will definitely stay here again. We gave it a '10' rating and while it has no pool, clubhouse, store, hayrides, showers, laundry, etc...it's near-perfect in our eyes. Just upgrade the Wifi security to at least WPA and it would be perfect! We camped at Northgate RV Travel Park in a Motorhome.
