This is a Hamilton County park with concrete sites & roads. Our site was a back-in on the rear loop of the campground. Our site was just long enough for our 34' fifth wheel & allow us to park in front. Some sites are shorter. It would be nice if the road in the rear loop was a little wider. There were several sites with deep holes next to the road from previous vehicles backing in to sites. Most sites seem to share a hookup for electric & water. We observed many people pull into the site so the hookups would be on the proper side. We spent a week here & saw many vacant sites during the week. However, on the weekend, the park completely filled up. Use caution when driving thru the park on weekends because there are kids everywhere. The camp hosts do try to enforce the 5 mph speed limit. The park sits right next to the White River & mosquitoes were out in force during our stay. The shower house is at the front of the park. There are restrooms at the rear of the park, but no showers. TV reception OTA was fine, but the wifi was slow & next to unusable on the weekend. We would use this campground again, but would probably try to avoid the weekend. - c lewis

This is a great place to stay if you are passing through or live close by. The campground is well kept and attractive, and our site was very level and shaded. Plenty of space between sites. Plenty of things to do. Hook ups were fine but on the second day, our water turned very rusty. We have filters so it was okay. Our site was big enough for our 25' trailer but we had to park the truck sideways next to the road. After raining all night, it was surrounded by a huge puddle and we didn't see where there was any overflow parking. Minor inconveniences. We did have trouble with our reservation, no email confirmation. They sent one when I called but it was for a different site - basically the same, shady and on the river so that was okay. Luckily, this was during the week so availability was good. Then we decided to stay an extra night but there was someone in the site they offered. By the time they straightened it out, we were on our way out - it was well after noon check out and we didn't want sit around waiting any longer, or tie up our site if the next people came. The office people were very apologetic, very pleasant and helpful. It was unfortunate but those things happen. Their website could definitely be improved! Very scant information there.
The sites at the back end (51 through 69) are more crowded, and 51 backs up to a maintenance shed. It was nice being on the river but I thought the pond side sites were equally nice. They aerate the front pond and we saw people fishing there. The other ponds had some algae, I didn't ask if it was blue green. - janci

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

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

This park did not suit our needs. We are a senior couple traveling through, staying one night, towing a car. Check-in time on Sundays and holidays is 5:00 PM, which we did not know. So we waited in our coach over an hour in the hot sun waiting for our reserved site to become available. No pull through sites were available when we reserved a few weeks prior to arrival. So after unhitching the car and getting in our site 47 (in full sun), all we wanted was a shower and peace and quiet. The shower was awful. Cement floor, push a button inside the shower stall for 20 seconds of lukewarm water. No temperature or water pressure control. No place to put your soap or shampoo. Very low water pressure made rinsing my hair a long slow process. No exhaust fan in shower area. Very old building. That said, this would be great for families with little kids. Lots of children riding bikes and playing in the grassy area. - Breezy2011

We only stayed one night, but we will probably come again. The campground was very clean and the sites are all pretty nice. We were able to choose our site and picked a pull through for convenience. There is one bathhouse pretty centrally located. The other facility is a pit/vault toilet. There is a nice playground on the site. Our grand daughter enjoyed it. - 4stringdude

Our first night after the pick up of our rental we were at Mounds. Good spot for the first night. Quiet and in the nature of the state park. - Molenwerk

Lovely park a couple of miles off I-69 with outstanding staff. I called ahead to let them know I would arrive late - when we rolled in at 10pm, my package was on the door, an escort showed us to the site, and a couple other staff helped us get backed in. Bathrooms/showers are nice, and well placed in the park. There is no pool, but a large pond with designated swimming area and catch & release fishing. - Cousin Eddy

The staff told us how to get to the park. The road was quite narrow and tree-lined. Upon arrival, we were escorted to our site. There was mud but there had been a lot of rain. We were on the first pull thru site across from the playground which had a nice "front yard". Garbage service was curbside pickup. The utilities were placed ok but the sewer ran uphill. We didn't use any facilities and won't comment on them. The antenna picked up some channels but we couldn't get NBC or CBS at all. The wifi was decent. The grass was mowed while we were here. Two days after arrival a fifth wheel was placed beside us. This left about six to eight feet of space between us. The sites are difficult to get into because the sites are perpendicular to the street. The sign at the entrance asks RVers to take the windy narrow road when you leave, but Skyview Drive is a MUCH better way to enter and exit the park. I don't know if the community requests that RVers take the windy road, but we scraped against tree branches entering the park and it was unnecessary when there was a simpler, quicker, and potentially less costly way to enter the park. The park itself is ok. We might look elsewhere first, but would return if we couldn't find another park. - Tammy7

This is nice looking, and seemingly popular, campground. There is a lake/pond with a small beach, an inflatable jumping pad, playground, and roads safe enough for kids to ride bikes. One evening, they had a band that played a variety of different music that was entertaining. Each site has a picnic table and fire pit. There are mature trees that are pretty, and in our site, did not interfere with our satellite. Water is treated, and it is very soft. Electric iffy - if we ran all 3 A/Cs eventually the breaker would trip. We haven't had any problem before or after running all 3. The sites are a mixed bag - long, short, level or not, concrete, or gravel and grass. Roads are narrow for maneuvering into certain sites, and there are many speed bumps. Verizon is all over the place anywhere from 1X to 3g to 4g with 1 bar. The WII FI never worked, ever. There are trains! They have rules, which are appreciated, but they are over the top. Let's just say that you better keep the pass they issue in the rear view mirror or the gestapo will find you. No matter that said pass may have been torn and was lying in the front dash until we had time to tape it. The biggest gripe was our site. It was in a low area and had a wooden deck on the passenger side. We could only open the bay doors about 1/3 of the way before hitting the deck. You had to sit down to get to any of the doors. We arrived on a Friday and asked immediately to be moved. The site they offered was very unlevel - the motorhome in the site had both front tires off the ground so we declined. On Monday when it cleared out, we tried again. Asked for a new site and said we didn't mind moving more than once. Even if we ended up back in the original site. No can do they said. But, they could do! We were there for 12 days and watched which sites were empty, and there was more than one for several days in a row. We don't get it. - Free

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

So this one is a little sticky. I found this fairground on rv park reviews and then went on the state fairground website that instructed that there was year round camping spots available and to just go to gate 6 and pick a spot. They further instructed that security would find you and check you in. Well, we arrived and we didn't find the campground on the fairground but security and the managers were soooooo nice and accommodated us by allowing us to stay in the park a few blocks away that they used for people working the fair. They didn't have many people there yet for the fair so it was okay for one night. It was plenty big enough for the 45' coach and had lots of spaces to choose from. They were very nice about the whole thing, from start to finish. I highly recommend you call first to ask about any camping and disregard the webpage. Call the security office or the fairground to find out about options. - MEvan

Simple back-in parking spots along roadway, which could be tight when campground is full. Friendly, helpful staff. Bathrooms were dated but clean. We would stay again. - CO2RV
