This is thousand trails/koa?? Stayed in koa section that was kind of swampy but close to a fishing lake. Nice pool and playground. Thousand trail section is large with many permanents and golf carts cruising everywhere. We camped at Batesville KOA in a Travel Trailer.

The main staff is the only reason this review is as high as it is. The campsite itself was clean, our pull-through site was huge, and the staff was very kind and helpful. My low review, however, is specifically to the pool staff. We were swimming in the late afternoon, and there was a good sized staff of lifeguards of 4 or 5. They must've had friends swimming, because, despite all the guard towers, they all sat in pool chairs on the same side of the pool chatting with each other, their friends in the pool, and taking pictures with their phones. Yes, at least 2 of them had their phones out, taking selfies!

We only stayed there for the night, but the place had a good friendly vibe to it. I'm not sure if we'd stay there again, but I would warn, not necessarily discourage, people from staying there. We camped at Batesville KOA in a Travel Trailer.

This is a very confusing place if you are staying only a few nights using KOA. The KOA campground sits in the middle of a Thousand Trails membership campground. The amenities have recently undergone an upgrade with a new pool area and clubhouse. Sections of the TT campground are developed with campers permanently on campsites. The campground is gated requiring a key card to get in after hours.

When we arrived we were met by TT folks who were helpful getting us checked in but wanted to sell TT. The KOA staff forgot to give us a card pass for entry into the park after hours so we were locked out one night until someone could open the gate for us. There is a lot of vehicle traffic with both cars and golf carts.

KOA should consider turning their part over to TT. I don't recommend staying here. We camped at Batesville KOA in a Motorhome.

This KOA is not what I expect from a KOA. The lady at the desk was pleasant and escorted us to our site, and if not for that, the rating would have been much less than what I gave. There was a 10 yard dumpster overflowing with stinky garbage. This campground was not busy, and is obvious why. Never say never, but it's not likely we will stay here again. We camped at Batesville KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This was our 2nd time staying at the KOA inside the Thousand Trails park. We were in the one and only 50 amp full hookup pull-thru site there. No one else was there during our overnight. Lots of low branches as we were escorted to our site. Our escort also appeared to be unfamiliar with the roads since she led us in the wrong way. There were also deep ruts on the gravel and grass and the recent rains made everything wet and muddy. Site was fairly level. The park overall had an unkempt feel. There's a dog walking area but no off leash park. WiFi was nonexistent. We'll probably return since it's so convenient to the interstate but for overnight or short stays only. We camped at Batesville KOA in a Motorhome.

The park itself is gorgeous, the updates make this place appealing. But with 10 stays under our belt here, one big problem remains for us: unmotivated, uncaring KOA staff that misrepresent the activities on the calendar online.

Time and time again, we arrive excited for the activities which promise fun for our children to find the same unmotivated, bored dude wishing he was anywhere but there running an activity that has very few similarities than promised. I feel so frustrated in the moment!!

Just 3 examples:

A chocolate social was promised during prime season and the dude had enough of the taste testing chocolate for 1/10 of the people that showed up.

Another weekend promised a flashlight candy hunt. Our boy's were over the moon w excitement. We arrived 10 minutes before the scheduled activities to find they started the hunt 30 minutes early and there was nothing left. People arriving were furious. The dude said no less than 10 times that he spent 70 bucks in candy and there should have been plenty. They got zero.

This past weekend was an old fashioned carnival. I called the Monday before to ask if the booths costs and was told they were free. We happen to notice that it started an hour early. The booths did cost and were .25 each. Not a huge deal but very typical to differ from what was listed. The worst part is that the children only got a prize if they won the game and the skill level was super hard. The prizes were valued at less than .25 but they were nearly impossible to win. My 2 year old won nothing except for the last game where an older lady helped him. It was ridiculous.

The game room is atrocious w 2 pay tables and a closet a hot mess w not a single complete game. The one and only free table doesn't have any balls that aren't crushed in the closet. Such a waste.

This visit the pool was closed. There is never an urgency to get it open. The handicap shower in the shower house didn't work but had no sign so I was naked before realizing it. We camped at Batesville KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

If you are going FOR the kids activities, please take all the promises w a grain of salt. Plan your own like we do now (scavenger hunts, water balloon fights, nerf gun fights) and just take any activities actually given as a bonus.

Everything costs so if it says free, take your money anyway.

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 Batesville KOA in a Motorhome.

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 Batesville KOA in a Travel Trailer.

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 Batesville KOA in a Travel Trailer.

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 camped at Batesville KOA in a Travel Trailer.
