We stayed here for a music festival and the campground was very crowded. We came for the music, so of course it is convenient to stay in the campground during the festival. The restrooms near the back of the campground were open on Fri and Sat but smelled horrible. The restrooms near the stage were open and in much better shape. The showers are open from 7-10 am and pm, so if not there by 10 am would have to wait unit after the music starts to get a shower. We loved the music and friends we gather with each year, so will be going again next year. I'm not sure I would stay here otherwise. - Donna Jo

Spooky park. Thought we were on a empty drive in theater lot. Would not stay here again. In fact, we left after the first night. Stayed in the fall and there was no one around. All but one restroom closed. Would not recommend during off season for sure. - Julie B

Old park. At this time of year, no problem getting a site. Roads fair, narrow, hilly and dirt. Park is large. Sites old gravel, unlevel but spacious. Everything looks old and worn. Staff gives appearance of unconcerned. Good electric and water pressure. Mediocre. Alright for an overnight, close to Nashville Indiana. - PappaDee

The Wifi didn't exist. We had the password but with various mobile devices could never find the service. Also could never get the cable to work even after we did all the things the owners said to do. Select a site on the west side of the park if you prefer shade. The pool closes early. We went down after dinner to cool off and the poolhouse and office was locked. We have stayed at this park many times in the past, this is the first time with the new owners. Never had these problems before. - Drapery Queen

This park was well maintained. Staff were very friendly, even when I interrupted them while they were eating dinner! You could tell staff cared about cleanliness in the restrooms and laundry room. Great place to camp.
A clean pool was available. Sites were all fairly flat and the location close to Nashville made this a great place to camp while exploring the area. The entrance to the park is a slight hill, but shouldn't be a problem. - Silvana CLark

An old KOA with newer owners. Great little park with lots of trees and shade. It is far enough off the road to be rather quiet, especially at night. Very close to Brown County State Park, which is beautiful.
Sites are level gravel, probably close together when the park is full. We pretty much had the place to ourselves, so not a problem. Would definitely come back. - SAU51

Older park in need up some major upgrading, our site looked like an afterthought as it was between the tool shop and a cabin. The utilities were good and easy to connect to. - Teacher's Pet

This park is actually in Gnawbone, a few miles from Nashville. The sites are somewhat close together and the road might be a little close for some. Otherwise, the sites were level, wifi excellent and the owners very friendly and helpful. - hudsonguy

Agree with previous comments. Park is still clean and well maintained with very helpful owners. Park was pretty full over Labor Day weekend, but emptied out the day after. Price is a bargain.
Only negative is that some of sewer connections were elevated off the ground thus making dumping a little tricky, i.e. dumping uphill. - GerMarV

Very nice State Park. Sites are spread out over several loops so the campground is much larger than it first appears. The site quality can vary a lot even in the same loop, so choose carefully when making on-line reservations. For instance, our site was level asphalt with a gravel patio area, but some nearby sites were thin, uneven gravel. The sites are electric only with several scattered water spigots available for filling tanks. This is a huge State Park with many hiking, biking, and horse trails throughout. The camp store was well supplied and had longer weekend hours. There are only two dump stations, so wait times on Sunday afternoons can be long. - Daryn

We camped early in the season and it was wonderful. Big camping spots, clean facilities and very quiet. - Tlead4

Though this campground does not have sewer or water hookups and is electric only, the location of the campsites more than makes up for lack of utilities. We had a lovely campsite under the trees with a short walk to the bathhouse which was clean though simple. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our time in the park, did some hiking and had a campfire. It is conveniently located to the arts town of Nashville where we enjoyed seeing the shops and eating a few meals. This is a beautiful state park that Indiana residents should be proud of. It reminded us of the Smoky Mountains. We stayed in the section called Taylor Ridge. It was beautiful and secluded. Lots were gravel, level and large with picnic table and fire ring. - Cathy S

I reviewed this park a few years ago but it is worth a re-review. They built a new shower house which is a vast improvement. The trees have grown up so there is some shade available. The swimming beach has been removed so no swimming is available. Still it is a county park carved out of an old army base. It is a decent place to camp if you are going to one of the many events at the park. Several seasonal campers plus some people temporarily living in tents. - bgb1066

This is a pretty typical county park campground. Water and electric sites plus a tent area. The shower house is grungy. The sites are gravel pads with a grassy area between them. The park has a lot of events and things to do so it is not a bad place to spend a weekend. The campground does have power problems when crowded and the weather is hot. - bgb1066

Older campground with narrow gravel sites, but 36' Class A with 4 slides fit easily. 50 amp power, water and sewer for $20 per night a great deal. Just off I-65 near Premium Outlet stores and several restaurants. Stayed overnight and would stay again. Cash or personal check only. - Travellin' Tina

Focusing on just the campground, and not the beautiful Monroe Lake property, this property just gets 'average', although it borders on poor. A prior review from years ago referenced bad roads and potholes inside the campground. Well, they're still there; the roads are terrible. This campground is old and tired, but it gets packed every weekend, because of the fact that it's adjacent to the lake. You'd think Indiana would spend some of the increased camping fees to fix the aging campgrounds.
Many sites have some sort of lake access or lake view, and others have only a short walk to a nice view or access. The 2-cars per site rule isn't enforced, and some people are camping in horse trailers and box trucks. Many of sites are not level, so trust the online booking when it indicates slope. Our site was listed as 'gentle' slope, but it sloped front to back AND left to right. It's also referred to as a 'gravel' site, but this site (nor any others) hasn't seen fresh gravel in years. Some RV sites looked like tent-only to me. Our AC was having a hard time keeping up after the campground filled up, due to an overloaded electric system. I'm guessing that the electrical system gets overloaded, as many of the RV sites are used by 20-amp tent campers with multiple crock pots, lights, etc. For $30 for electric-only sites, this campground isn't a great value, but daggone-it, we'll go back because we love the lake.
It is sort of fun to people-watch here, as it's sort of like going to the county fair. Things quieted down pretty nice after about 10pm, though, even on Saturday night, so even though it's a zoo during the day, you can still get some rest.
There is a marina on the property for boat rentals and various basics and sundries, and a little larger store at the park entrance that sells fishing gear and beer/wine/groceries. - fastalker64

Nice campground, but lots of traffic with all of the people pulling boats and campers. The restrooms are older, but were kept clean. - bgb1066

Nice state park. Staff seems decent. Some sites wooded and some out in the open. You have your pick. No water at sites, but a few spigots here and there. Probably ought to be a few more so they aren't quite so far apart. Most roads were good; however, I was a little surprised with the main road running through the campground. There were a few craters that need to be addressed pretty bad. Bathrooms and showers were clean, but dated. Probably pretty active during the main season, but VERY quiet for our stay. We will stay here again. - cwooz

We were in the 200-209 area and it is a gravel parking lot. Utilities set up OK, good wifi in the area. No bath house close. No tables, patio or fire rings in this area. - dfc

We stayed one night in a 40 ft MH. There is a very large sewage plant across the street, although it didn't smell the night we stayed. The sites are all back in and are gravel. The park is older and is located next to a busy road. The park has two stocked ponds that allow 24 hour fishing by the general public for a fee. There are a lot of non-campers driving thru the park at all hours. The staff is friendly and the fishing / office is open 24 hours a day. Not a park for small children because the ponds are open and have high banks. - Tom222

The managers are very friendly but sites are short and tight. Sites are level and gravel and close to a busy road. Sites face 2 large stocked ponds. If you love fishing - you will like this park. Note - your campground fee does not cover your fishing permit. You do need to pay extra to actually fish in the ponds. Many locals do come in and set up chairs and poles. Great for fishing - not so much for a relaxing stay. - J&N

We made a great choice staying at Lake Haven Retreat, even though it was only for 2 nights. From our view, this is a campground made mostly for self-contained big rigs, as our 24' travel trailer paled in comparison to some of our neighbors. They have the pull-through sites designed so that your neighbor is aimed in the opposite direction, putting the utilities between the two of you. Our slide was about 4 feet from the slides on the huge dual axle motorhome next door, but they weren't there during our stay, so we didn't have any noise issues. It is not difficult to see that this is a well-maintained, clean, efficiently run facility and I would stay here again if in the area. We pull out tomorrow, but looking at the decorative rocks/boulders along the park roads, I don't think they will cause us any issues. - Love To Travel 2

Very nice staff, on site RV repair business quite reasonable, mowing a tad lax, many seasonal RVs but plenty of travelers as well.
Very near city creature comforts so shopping and restaurants plentiful.
WiFi, typical Campground with OK to poor usefulness.
Limited RV parks in Marion county so competition limited choices.
Good spot to do your work or touring Indy, not a destination park. - budwang

Urban campground just off the southern bypass. Big rig friendly but some turns could be challenging depending on how full the park is and where people place their cars or trucks. It's a circuitous route to get to the transient pull thrus. No shade there. Utilities are convenient and there are 10 wifi antennas all thru the park, so we had good connection. Water pressure seemed weak. No off leash dog park. Nice lake with geese. It's a large park but feels tight and small. Some longterm residents have their stuff spread out on their sites: full size grills, patio furniture and umbrellas, fire pits, golf carts, even a chest freezer at one site. Makes it look very crowded. This was just an overnight for us and we'd likely stop here again if passing thru. - Flippitti

We had to ruff it Satelite wouldn't wok in trees, I'm excited to see what life without television is like! Our site didn't have sewer, don't normally hook up unless I intend to dump. Unlike previous review long timers don't bother me if their sites are clean and rv's well kept. Level, clean, quiet, long pullthru so I didn't have to unhook. - User2314

Good overnight stop near Indianapolis. Indy doesn't offer many campgrounds, so we always stay a little out of town when traveling the I-65 corridor. Woods N Waters is a clean campground, with level and well graveled sites, and has good signage to lead you here. The property has mature trees, a pool, and small pond. Many sites are pull-through and some have full hook-ups. There are a lot of seasonal campers parked here, which always makes me feel like I'm intruding on a private club - that contributes to a slightly lower rating, but it's just my own quirk. This is a great campground, secluded and secure, and serves well for an overnight stop. - Flying Mantis

Over all we consider Woods-N-Waters a middle of the road campground. Roads are gravel and several tight turns were needed to get to our site. Our pull-thru site was gravel and fairly level. No sewers are available for pull-thrus. We were not able to connect to the WiFi. We noticed a low rumble and felt a vibration on many surfaces both inside and outside our coach which we assume was coming from the nearby factory. The county road leading to the campground is narrow and had a sign that says "No Semis". On the way out we passing another RV going in the opposite direction and it was a very tight fit to stay on the road and not hit mirrors. - Oliver-Max
