First, the good: The camp hosts get an A+ for hospitality. The location is very nice, with lots of tall trees and shade. It was easy to get to from the highway, but far enough away not to have to listen to highway traffic. Now, the bad: The site was horrible. It was overgrown with weeds and tall grass and not even close to level. The utilities were a mess. The electric box had some bare wires hanging out of it, and the host speculated it was because someone had cut off the 50 amp connection. I experienced several power blackouts for a few seconds at a time during my stay. The water connection was a filthy hose. I didn't use it. The sewer was buried under some tall grass, and fairly far to the front of the site, so I could not hook up to it unless I unhitched the truck. There was no WiFi and only a weak Verizon signal. Given the condition of the utilities and the park in general, the nightly rate is too high. The park is mostly permanent residents. One of the permanent residents' dogs was wandering around pooping on my site, which was especially concerning because the grass was so unkempt. I did not want to walk around on the site. Also, the dog would run up and yap at me if I exited the trailer, and its owners seemed unconcerned with that. I will not return to this park. - KAP99

This is the second time we have stayed here. The sites are easy, grassy pull-throughs, and reasonably level. Each site has a picnic table, and a lot of shade. The owners are nice people- they prefer if you call 30 minutes before you arrive, so they can be there to meet you, but if you don't, you can just pick a site. The campground has quite a few permanent people, some mobile homes, some permanent trailers. There are no amenities, but we like staying here because its very convenient to Ball State University and the town of Muncie. - Soos

The park is what the name implies, full of big, really big, oak trees. It is a very nice older park with very long gravel sites scattered among the big trees. Most are nearly level with one or two small shims to do the job. Owner/manager is very accommodating. Will stay again when passing through the area as it is only 4 miles off the interstate. - Bullrider

A combination "Seasonal" Park with plenty of 'deck attached' RV's and Weekend Getaway Destination, this family owned park provides everything an RV Enthusiast might need. Featuring the cheapest Propane refill station in the county, Timberline Valley RV Resort provides the perfect stop for an overnight guest, Ball State Tailgater or season long visitor. For those with the desire to cast a line, the park boasts a well stocked fishing pond: complete with trophy sized large mouth bass. The spacious sites leave acres of landscaped grass between you and the neighbors, and the on-site staff frequently check in to ensure every moment of your stay meets or exceeds expectations. We certainly plan to revisit this park the next time we visit Muncie, Indiana! - Todd and Heather

Very nice and obviously committed ownership. Everything is ship shape and well cared for even now that their main season has ended. We were escorted to our site, a long, gravel-covered, 30-amp, full hook-up pull through. A nice touch was that our assigned site was not right next to others; the sites are pretty close together so if full, it could feel confined. All on-site services worked well and the wifi was great (unusual for a campground) and we had good Verizon cell service. The gravel landing area for our site was narrow and not level side-to-side so we were glad we had leveling blocks. Interior roads are paved with some gravel, the latter were quite narrow. This campground apparently has some happy seasonal users as many of the sites had camper-created improvements like patios and stairwells; I'm betting there is big fun here during the camping season. - Janau NC

We passed the road to the campground, but able to get there from the next turn, although it was tight coming through (where the tuxedo shop is). It looks like you're going through a neighborhood and the signage isn't great until you're on top of the campground. The owner was super nice and escorted us to our site. Seemed to be lots to do there during warm season, but we didn't do anything in our brief overnight stay. Everyone decorated for Halloween! We'd come back if ever in the area again. - DaBlairs

Love this park! The sites are very spacious. The CG was completely full when we were there, but it very quiet. The hostess walks the CG and is very nice. It is electric only sites. The only reason I gave it a 9 was the showers have very limited hot water - so you better be quick! :) It is close to Ball State University so makes a great place to stay and visit the campus. Has a great nature center, trails, historical home and the mounds to visit. - bluedurango

Beautiful state park! Spacious lots, walking trails everywhere. A little hard to maneuver with our toad around the sharp corners to get to the campground area. Since it is off season, they come to you to collect the night's fees which are very reasonable. Tables and fire rings were provided. Only drawback was the sound of the trains in the night, which was every few hours. - Rusty Quilter

This is a fascinating area, and despite some disappointments, I'm glad we stayed here. The Mounds were very serene, and the pool was nice; especially, the part for young children. The shower and pool house were not very clean. There were bugs and a bit of debris in both. The park trails were not clearly marked (even the campground worker agreed with us on this!) and the map was little help. We walked for nearly an hour circling one of the mounds on both sides before finding it. It was, in fact, only a 15 minute walk from our campsite. - HomeIsWhereYouParkIt

We stayed here only one night on our way back to Illinois. Pull through sites were a little tight and short. 30 amp service only, no problems with the power or water. The campground seemed to be mostly for full time people in trailers. The lady at the office was very nice and helpful showing us to our site. We stayed here in a 33' motorhome.. - Rwake901

We stayed here for only one night on our way back to Michigan. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The restroom were clean although a bit dated. I had some trouble with one of the jacks on my motorhome and the owner and one of his staff worked with me, provided tools and helped to get the jack up. They both refused any compensation. We would definitely stay here again. - Rontuski

We came to this park in part because it is suppose to be associated with Passport America. When I showed my card I was told they are no longer associated with them. Full price is only $28. Friendly people, clean, and close to highway for over nighters. We would stay again. - rynho29

Road going into the park is very narrow with low branches (almost lost an antenna). The site was gravel/dirt/grass and somewhat unleveled. A lot of residents with old equipment. No sewer hookups on the pull-throughs. We will avoid this place in the future. - Michael47

This is primarily a seasonal campground. They do provide over night spaces. Nice setting next to a small lake and across from a golf course. Showers were clean but dated and shower heads seemed to be clogged up due to bad water. Staff very friendly and helpful. Did not try Wi-Fi but was told it would only work next to office. - Tom Ponder

This is a typical campground (as opposed to an RV park). There are very few if any level sites in this park. - JTD2
Sep 2016 - $30.00
We really like this park. Concrete sites, full hookups, WIFI. Everything worked fine. Plenty of room to get into site and plenty of space between you and the next camper. The day we were to arrive, they were replacing a water pump and the park employee called us to let us know so if we needed to stop for water before we got there we could. We thought that was very nice of her. The pump was fixed when we arrived so no issues. There was construction on some type of a bridge over the river in the campground that was rather noisy starting early in the morning. We'd definitely stay here again. Our GPS did take us past the entrance for some reason, but there are signs and we should've been watching for them. - jacknpeg

This is a highly rated campground run by the local county. It's in a lovely tree lined area near the river. We were really looking forward to staying here. BUT, on a nice early fall weekend it's a disappointment. There are two issues: 1) It's JAMMED with people, cars, dogs running loose, 3 year olds on bikes and large family gatherings spread out all over every available blade of grass. That's OK, but when the sites are really tight it's uncomfortable. Next to our site is what appears to be a family reunion. They've rented 7 or 8 sites and have set up a large kitchen, gathering place and parked 12- vehicles that I can count. There must be 35 people next to us.
The 2nd issue is one of the charms of the place - the River. It's flooded through here and everything is drenched, muddy and wet. We're here on a dryish day - but we had to move from our reserved site because it was under water with no way into our out of the RV without wading water or going through deep mud.
I'm guessing if you came here in the middle of the week it would be almost empty and pretty easy to find a nice site to enjoy.
Looking at the campgrounds near this spot, I don't see any better place. So, maybe this is the best on the northeast side of Indy?? - Creativepart

We really enjoyed this park. Level concrete sites with small patio area. Right on the river with lots of space between sites. It is convenient located to shopping of all kinds. Gated during off hours also. - Justice12t

First the positives: next to a river, close to a golf course and shopping. The negatives: Over priced for the facilities, poorly kept with long grass and very poor restrooms with very primitive showers. This camp is not very big rig friendly with limbs and power lines that should be higher. Get a firm price before accepting a spot. We were quoted $35 when we made our advance reservation. The price jumped up to $38 when we arrived. We mentioned membership to FMCA and Good Sam so he discounted down to $35! I like to feel like I can trust the camp ground owner to shoot straight. We will not stay here again. It's just to primitive. - Beech35p
Aug 2013 - $22.00
We loved this charming campground! The price was amazing, especially for a full hookup, and it was cleaner than the last state park we visited. The facilities are not modern, but are well-maintained. We camped less than 20 ft from the riverbank! Everyone was very friendly. We can't wait to go back and camp there again! - HomeIsWhereYouParkIt

This is the type of park you'll hate or find it satisfactory. We wanted to be near Purgatory Golf Course and this is right across the street. They have very limited big rig sites but we were able to get 50 amps on the river. The park is not kept very pristine but it's acceptable. No amenities were obvious including Wi-Fi. Plenty of room to maneuver. Lots of old campers and full time residents. We would stay here again because of the location and it did have a certain peacefulness. Golf course is great! - Team Asphalt

This park has a 10 pull through 50amp sites in an area without trees, with most of the campground's sites occupied by season campers in a woods. As in the past little has been done to correct the interior roads and pad conditions. If it rains your site will be water covered since the road is slightly higher than the campsites. Needs work, but it is close to the Indianapolis north side where we had an appointment early the next morning. This trip the voltage at the pedestal was at about 105-110V, not that way in the past. - Teacher's Pet

This park was a complete mud hole. Owner said the drive hadn't been graded yet, but it needed major stone in the huge holes. WiFi was non existent even though the owner said it could be spotty. I asked about showers when I made reservations and was told there was a shower house. There was but it was closed part of the time and the shower was unusable on the women's side. Owners were not friendly. Only plus it's close to the interstate and to shopping. Will not stay here again. - Diplomat 07

I had read a few of the previous Glowood reviews and noted the rough roads into the park. However, I foolishly thought the problems would be fixed by now. Wrong! I called the cg office and was specific that we needed a pull thru for a 38 foot motorhome and car and didn't want to unhook for the night. Spot was available. Come on in.
The internal roads were narrow, mud-filled craters.
The check-in office was a creepy, dimly-lit opening beneath a porch. The owner took my money and pointed me in the direction of my site.
The sharp curve preceding the end spot was muddy everywhere with deep, unavoidable ruts. This was the last site available. No way could we make the curve and pull thru. At this point, the back right tires of the coach began to sink into the mud. I quickly checked to see if we could go straight and leave, but the pull thru site seemed to be the only way out. On foot, I raced back to the office to see if the owner could suggest an exit. He said no one had ever had this problem with my site. Very untruthful. Maybe a class B van could get thru but not anything bigger. He then offered to pull our motorhome and car out with his SUV if we were stuck in the mud. David and Goliath? Clueless? He even offered my money back and a little extra for my trouble. So generous considering our perilous plight and his negligence in putting us into a spot he should have known was unacceptable. Who does that?
He explained that they'd had rain, and mud-filled potholes had formed. I realized that these were not from a recent event. These were from years of neglect. Later, I read older reviews, one from June, 2008. Hint: read all the reviews.
We finally pulled in, not even bothering to level. Just connected the electric and were glad we could leave in the morning.
This owner has no conscience or ethics. Takes money and delivers nothing. Keep driving. - User3617

We had a group of 12 campers here for 4 days. The owners bent over backwards for us. We had the use of a room for our games and potluck. We will return again next year. They have a lot going on for the weekend. We had no trouble using the dump with a 34 ft FW. - ronstan

This was a funky little cg on the outskirts of Hartford City. GPS took us on a rather convoluted, circuitous route to get there, easier to just drive into Hartford City and turn left. The park has a lot of permanents and two small lakes. The dump site was totally inaccessible to us in our 33' rig and there were no sewer hookups at our site, so we left without dumping (we only stayed one night). Our site was a pull thru, at the end of a 'row', but there were several overgrown trees lining the site, which made it difficult to pull into. We would not return to this campground. It was OK for an over nighter. - shovelguy

Very nice place to camp, we stayed for 3 nights in site #55 which is right by one of the "lakes" which has a small island with two big weeping willow trees in the middle of it with a pretty bridge you can walk across to get to. It was so pretty. My husband caught several decent sized catfish while fishing in the lake. They also have another small pond with a swimming beach, mini-golf, live country music, church service, etc. I rated this an 8, since I do feel that it needs a few updates, like adding an additional modern restroom/shower house, and possibly a pool, otherwise I would give it a 10! The owners are so nice, and the guests were also very friendly. It is out in the middle of the country, north of Hartford City. So peaceful and quiet, we will definitely return! - tonya418n12

We stayed fairly close to comfort station, and found it a busy traffic site. Well shaded, and good water, trash removal, had picnic tables and campfires are allowed. Most sites are pretty well graveled and reasonably easy to level a camper. They have added water view cabins, and most of the park provides for easy fishing access, and water view.
Friendly staff, well security patrolled. Really need to improve the sewer dump station. It would really make it a better park, if they installed sewer connections and upgraded the restroom and shower facilities. - Jacobsen
Jul 2010 - $25.00
Stayed here due to the close proximity to the Muncie 70.3 race. Mostly seasonal campers. The daily RV sites have only a 30 amp outlet and water hookup. They are generally narrow, unlevel and scattered with trash. Can't figure why folks don't pick up after themselves because there are large trash cans every couple sites. The grass isn't mowed often. They have primitive tent site closer to the one bathroom/shower. Although the bathroom is old it was fairly clean. The staff is friendly and helpful although they allowed another RV to take the site I'd reserved because they were staying longer and they said our 40ft would fit on a site that was made for a 20ft. This isn't a place you would come to "camp" but if you're coming to race or boat/fish it fits the bill for an overnight or two. - cpahog
