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

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

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

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

This park is rustic to the extreme. Office is a rundown mobile home, but it does have a new coat of paint. The lady who checked us in seemed very nice and greeted us with a big smile, showing all five of her teeth! It is a rather pretty park but reminds me of the setting for the movie "Deliverance." Looks to be many monthly fisherman sites and younger construction workers, from the look of the people about.
All infrastructure looks very old and well used. Power (pedestals) are mostly old and not well designed. Voltage did seem to be stable, at least for a small RV with a low BTU air conditioner. Picnic tables provided but are in very poor condition. Looks like it could be difficult to get out if it should rain very much.
We found the directions to the park very difficult to follow, and it was much farther from the highway than we were lead to believe. Since it was the only park we could locate in the area, we came anyway and for a 1 night stop. The value is probably good, but we would not be comfortable staying here for very long.
Nice enough people but just not our social set since we don't drink "Bud" in large volumes. - RV Camper1

After staying here and reading the previous reviews, I couldn't stop laughing. It is full of permanent trailers with parties on the weekends. Some of the trailers are older than me and I am in my 40's. People are mostly friendly and really enjoy the adult beverages. I do agree about the bathrooms and showers. They are so bad that none of us would shower there. The state parks have much better facilities. The dump station is not worth the effort and they only a few sites with sewer. The water was the worst. It actually stained our water lines, toilet and shower in our camper. Not a place I would choose to go back to at all. - TravelOBRN

I suppose this place does qualify as a “campground” but you need to know what you’re getting into up front. I’m really not trying to be rude or mean, but this is more of a: “park your trailer for 15 years and come fish on the weekends” kind of place. It’s old and dilapidated, and just a bit on the scary side, if you ask me. I kept waiting for some guy to come ask me if I wanted some special recipe sausage or some guy to show up in a hockey mask or something. Don’t even think about asking for a refund, it’s printed in large bold print on your receipt: “NO REFUNDS.” So, like I said just know what you’re getting into before you think this is a KOA: it’s not! I gave it 2 stars out of pity. - spectre5050

As others said, it is hard to find parks convenient to visiting most urban areas. The Fairgrounds campground are fine for a reasonably secure place to stay when visiting family/friends, etc. It is NOT a resort! But nice to have 50 amp and w/sewer. There is a reasonably priced washer/dryer set in each restroom. Sites near the restroom are best suited for very small RVs or tents as they are unlevel but the rest are reasonable. Sites are EXTREMELY narrow (about 11') if you really follow the designations, but everyone takes 2 spaces and then there is no problem. Over the 4th of July weekend about 2/3 full, but would be impossible for most if they started forcing the spacing. - BandD

Enter off of Fall Creek, gate 6, was pretty easy. There was a car auction when we pulled in and there was one site left. Luckily it wasn't too bad but looking at most others they looked very un-level and extremely close together. Every other one will have hookups on wrong side. Water and electric worked fine but sewer was in a very bad spot. Would not stay here again. - cwier

We stayed here during the State Fair when the rates are slightly higher. An excellent place to stay and catch free shuttles to the Fair. We had FHU's with 50 amp service on a grassy/sunny site. Entrance on 46th street was easy and convenient. Great location to visit Indianapolis. - gptexas
