A little surprised at many of the reviews. We arrived yesterday on a Tuesday before the Fourth. Park was/is very crowded. The "Prime" sites are occupied mainly by annuals. KOA has the rest of the Prime sites. However, we found at least three sits in Phase 2 that have 50 amp and sewer. We took one. The sewer is strange. "Mini" septic tanks? The tanks serve two sites and a Honey Pump guy patrols to see if any are full. There is a "bobber" that raises when the tank is full. Unusual but effective. You can also call the ranger station if one is full. Funny to see the staff actually change shirts as they transition from the TTN Ranger shirts to the yellow KOA shirts. Weird situation but, we will stay again as this is the only park in my home town. Hope to return in a couple of years. We camped at Thousand Trails / Indian Lakes in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

If you can't find a sewer site, the honey pumper is only $15. Cheapest I've seen at TTN. At Idyllwild it is $25 and $35 for same day service.

We were told that there was WIFI there but only at the office and the other spot was locked. The office offered to go and unlock it but we used our own hotspot. The clerks in office lacked friendliness and were busy taking to friends. We had to go to one certain area because we were PPA. KOA had moved in to the the nicer areas and we were told they were trying out KOA? Would not go back it was not a good spot for the price. You have to pay a maintenance fee along with your regular PPA cost? We camped at Thousand Trails / Indian Lakes in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Too bad that they are limiting PPA folks to one area. We felt like the stepchildren. Although the other areas were empty. I guess the price for PPA was the cheapest at this park?

We stayed at the KOA inside the Indian Lakes Thousand Trails resort. The entire park was nearly empty. Roads are paved and sites are gravel and level. There were some trees with low branches. Hookups are near the back. We were escorted to our site which appeared to be the only pull-through in a section that had all back-ins. Our site, #65, had a buzzing transformer box, a meter box and a panel board with 4 circuit breaker boxes situated right where the door of our motorhome opened. It's a horrible site. Wi-Fi was weak, we got no cable as advertised on the KOA site, no off-leash dog park. The BBQ grill for this site is also located on the back driver's side of the motorhome. It's a quiet area and easy to find. We would probably return for a night or two but would opt out of #65. We camped at Thousand Trails / Indian Lakes in a Motorhome.

This is a nice campground. We stayed in Phase 4 of the campground and had full hook ups. The batrooms could have been cleaner. The pass card they gave us didn't work and neither did the second one. The sewer inlet was about a foot above the ground, making it almost unusable. These negatives prompted a rating of 7. I would stay here again if in the area.

Campground is very run down and not maintained. It is a Thousand Trails campground and also is a KOA. We used Passport America for half price or I would have been very upset. Grass was a foot long and the gravel site pads are mostly mud and that are not level, the hookups are on the wrong side in some sites. Sites were laid out wierd and there were a number of older units in there as full timers and they were run down too. I would not return there even for half price again. We camped at Thousand Trails / Indian Lakes in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed in KOA section over the 4th. Nice campground with lots to do. We had planned on going to Brookville Lake but decided instead to stay at the campground. There's a 3 mile bike / running path also. One negative is that while they do advertise they sell propane, they do so only between 8:30-9:30 AM. Quite odd. We camped at Thousand Trails / Indian Lakes in a Travel Trailer.

Late April, early May stays. Stayed here down/up on a short trip to Mammoth Cave. Very large campground with multiple sections. Stayed both times in the phase 4 section which was very open. Nice grass, no trees, full hook-up's. We choose this section after driving through the first section to the right which seemed very rough. Signs of recent excavation and very uneven grassy areas, by contrast the section we were in was nicely kept. Quite a few annuals were clustered along the the wooded side. Most seemed reasonably well kept. Easy access for our 43' rig. Re-entry into the campground is by a bar coded pass. Be cautioned the reader is extremely low for full size trucks. Staff all seemed friendly and helpful. Camp host in our section was friendly and introduced themselves soon after we set up; as well as, welcomed us back on the second visit. Camp store was currently in remodeling. Propane across the street was extremely expensive @ $39.99 for a 40# tank. Campground has limited propane hours in the am. Pool was not open. Never seen a full size stainless pool before. Facilities looked nice and assuming open later ?n the season. We use this campground as a base camp for visits to a convention in Cincinnati and visits to the Creation Museum. 45 min and 30 min drives respectively. Cell signal for Verizon and ATT were both excellent. Campground WiFi showed up at one bar on devices where we were, as well. Price reflects Thousand Trails zone pass. We camped at Thousand Trails / Indian Lakes in a Fifth Wheel.

Booked with Koa for a pull thru site, nothing even close to level in a completely empty koa section! Everything over grown, dumpsters over flowing, low hanging branches from trees everywhere. Basically, deplorable! We camped at Thousand Trails / Indian Lakes in a Travel Trailer.

Large park with Koa inside of it. Would have been great if the campsites weren't such a mess. Our site was right next to KOA and had two hunks of moldy carpet, garbage,broken down picnic table and no fire ring. The KOA had neat sites that were mowed and nice tables. We drove around for half an hour looking for a decent site and most of them had no defined pad or driveway. Very noisy park due to large number of construction workers living there. We would not stay here again. We camped at Thousand Trails / Indian Lakes in a Fifth Wheel.

TTN now shares park with KOA. KOA sites are clean, gravel, with picnic tables. TTN sites pale in comparison. Large leased area and many empty rigs on premise. Limited FHU sites in camping area. Another example of where TTN has decided to place their emphasis - and it's not in the membership camping. We camped at Thousand Trails / Indian Lakes in a Motorhome.

Did not actually stay at campground - we were traveling in area and decided to check it out as part of this campground is becoming part of the KOA network - unfortunately no one was at gate to allow access - only way in via a keycard. We understand they are to open full time on April 15th however please note - there are NO SIGNS whatsoever at this point from I-64 or on I-64 signs showing this as a KOA nor as Thousand Trails so you are on your own finding the campground. It is best though to use Sunman, route 101 exit off I-64. Based on previous reviews, lets hope they improve the KOA section of the campgrounds.

We spent two weeks here over the Labor Day Holiday and had our choice of some 14 sites with full hook-ups and 50 amps. Friends joined us within a few days and all had excellent sites nearby in Phase 4. We found the rangers and store help to be friendly and helpful. Breakfast was only on the weekends but was good and reasonable. This is a huge park but is well cared for. We have seen major improvements in the preserve over the past few years since this lady took over as manager; we appreciate her efforts. The annual rentals are under control here compared to other TTN parks as Phase 1 with over a hundred sites has most of the "personal" sites. Although we live far from here, we frequently spend time in this park since we like the area and plan to return often. We camped at Thousand Trails / Indian Lakes in a Motorhome.

This park is not your typical Thousand Trails resort. The bathrooms and showers are aweful and were not checked for 4 days on our stay. The staff is not friendly. The park seems to be run down as many of the electrical connections seemed to be falling apart. Do not expect to get full hookups unless you are permanent. My advice is keep driving to the next campground. I wish there was a number less than 1. We camped at Thousand Trails / Indian Lakes in a Tent Trailer.

Membership campground which is open to the public. Large sites. Not all have picnic tables. Limited full hookups. Lots of green areas. Nice pool when it is opened. There are four developed areas well spread out around a lake and green open areas. Cabins are also available. Some areas such as basketball court and sand volley ball area need maintenance. Should have a bike or golf cart to get around within the park or plan on using your vehicle. Have stayed here several times. Noisy on the weekends, but quite during the week. Will return.

We stayed in this park 3 yrs ago and had a great stay. Now, I will never stay here again. So many of the electric connections don't work and many of the water spigots don't work either. It took us a long time to find one that had both that did work and some shade. The 50 amp connections are very few with most being 30 amp. There are only 44 spaces with sewer. We are members of Thousand Trails, so it didn't cost us anything other than our dues. We camped at Thousand Trails / Indian Lakes in a Motorhome.
