One of the nicest parks we have stayed in this trip. We had a premium double wide concrete site with large wooden deck at rear of site with large shade tree. Lots of space and grassy areas. Neat hiking trails leading to the lake 1/2 mile away. Approximately 75% of sites are leased for long term, but areas are clean and it is apparent that campers take pride in their lots. Mostly pull behind units with most 5th wheels. Recommend reservations. Stayed in site 116. Definitely a destination CG with lots to do in Bloomington (home of IU). We camped at Lake Monroe Village in a Motorhome.

Lake Monroe Village is located in Bloomington, Indiana, near Lake Monroe. The park sits on 133 acres that includes RV sites, cabins and rental homes, as well as primitive campsites. Some RV sites have concrete pads, while others are grass, and 30-AMP or 50-AMP service, as well as picnic table and campfire ring are included in rate. Rates are for 2-people; extra charge for over 2-people.

Amenities include a playground for children, sand volleyball court, basketball hoop, swimming pool and kiddie pool, hiking trails, outdoor and indoor rec halls, and access to Lake Monroe. There is a Laundromat on site as well as heated bathroom facilities and showers. Free Wi-Fi is also available and offers a good signal.

This park does have a lot of year round RV campers, however, the RVs are well maintained and the grounds are well kept. The people in the campground are very friendly and a golf cart parade is held every Saturday night where candy is given out to children. Organized activities are sparse but well attended and their scheduled events, like their fireworks display on the 4th of July, are AWESOME!

The owners and caretakers of the park take pride in the facility and are quick to address any issue that requires attention.

We stayed at this park for slightly over 4 months and had a wonderful experience. We would recommend this park to others and will be staying here again in the near future. We camped at Lake Monroe Village in a Motorhome.

Nice commercial campground. Facilities were clean, but, the showers basically just dribbled water. Tried 3 different ones and all were the same. Sites were crowded together with a mix of gravel and cement. We were there for a rally. Would not stay there again because it's not our type of campground We camped at Lake Monroe Village in a Motorhome.

Close to Bloomington and IU campus for a visit. Nice setting with good walking/hiking trails and plenty of open space, very clean and sites had choice of gravel or concrete pads with an upcharge for concrete. All facilities were spotless and although the campground is mainly set up for seasonal owners/renters they went out of the way to make us feel welcome at an Oktoberfest party in the pavilion one night. Only downside is price is a little high for this time of year. We camped at Lake Monroe Village in a Motorhome.

Nice park for families with plenty of activities for all. On the Labor Day weekend the full timers had a golf cart parade and tossed candy to the children. Fun and a nice touch. We had a corner paved lot with plenty of room. We camped at Lake Monroe Village in a Fifth Wheel.

Main campground area is clean and family oriented. Wi-Fi only half worked. I couldn't connect to most of the towers in range, but ultimately found one that worked. No cable TV makes this pretty pricey at $46 a night ($43 plus $3 more for our 3rd child). Three pools include a kiddy pool outside, what I'll call an “everyone pool” outside, and a smaller indoor pool. There's a well stocked camp store, and small game room. There's a mini golf on site, but don't expect much. It's pretty rough, but the addition of the new bounce pillow made it all fun with the kids regardless. Campground seems to take reservations of any sized coach, but doesn't, and hasn't, put much thought into getting them into a site. We admittedly stayed here in a large 5th wheel, but it was extremely painful to negotiate the 8' wide narrow drives with a tree or a rock at every corner of the park: only 3' off the drives. We dragged going down the drives. Add to that newly planted trees on either side of the site drives, and it's really tough even for small trailers to get in and out. We arrived after hours, and couldn't get in our assigned site. We ended up moving to another spot in the park without permission, and we were never questioned about it while here. You could probably stay here for free without them knowing. Someone clearly hasn't thought much about getting into and out of this place with a truck and a trailer. There's a back lot area for tenting. We checked it out, and there are several dumping areas for misc junk and building materials. I have no idea what that is about, except a good home for critters. While the kids had a good time, we probably will not go back. It's simply too much money for what it is, and way way too tight even for small rigs. Move the trees back off the road Lake Monroe! We camped at Lake Monroe Village in a Fifth Wheel.

This was a stop-off point for us on our way home.The campground is very nice - mostly level, pull-through spots with fire rings and concrete pads. Spots are staggered so we got a nice view of the nearby forest. Trees at the front of the park are new, so there is not established shade, but in a few years that should improve. There are 3 swimming areas; a small, but nice indoor pool, zero-depth to 2 ft kiddie pool with mushroom fountain, and 4 foot outdoor pool. Pools are very well maintained. Free mini-golf is available. The park is well-kept and clean. We stayed here during the weekend, and the park was very quiet and had lots of spaces left. There is a nearby drive-in theater on Old Route 37 that would warrant a visit if we had stayed longer. Staff was not overly friendly/helpful, but were not rude. When we arrived we were handed a map and left to our own devices to find our spot. We camped at Lake Monroe Village in a Travel Trailer.

This park is clean & decent, with a lot of long term campers. It seems to appeal to locals a lot - which may help explain their relatively high camping fee and extremely high fee ($10/person) for visitors. Our site was concrete with patio and was quite level; sewer connection was above ground so we had to be hands-on when dumping. Sites can be a bit tight. There is a nice pool on the grounds, and small store, plus a boat launch on Lake Monroe. Security is good; there is a gate at the entry for which they issue you an electronic card, and they monitor those coming & going. We camped at Lake Monroe Village in a Travel Trailer.

This is a big park with lots of amenities and close to Lake Monroe. We were excited because it was a 5 Star rated park by Woodalls. Not even close. Restrooms were not maintained for at least 2 days at a time during our week stay and showers were only done about once a day. Not enough for such a big park. Wi-Fi was very spotty and this has been an ongoing problem there for years. Out in the country, about 12 miles from Bloomington. Staff is very friendly and helpful, just not as attentive to the restrooms as they should be. Were told no problems due to the floods but when we arrived, lake access was very limited. Would appreciate more honesty from the staff as it may not have caused us to change destinations but left a bad taste anyway. Not a bad park at all, just not what it is built up to be. We camped at Lake Monroe Village in a Travel Trailer.

We liked this campground but we lucked out and had the nicest site in the place. The people were very nice and the facilities are first rate. There looked to be some tighter sites in a different area but we certainly had no issues. It is rather difficult to get to however, make sure to have a good map or GPS system. We camped at Lake Monroe Village in a Motorhome.

This is a nice clean park, but over priced. For my grandson and friend to visit us for one hour it was $9/person. That's right $18! Couldn't get the wireless net to work. Good location and nice grass and some shade. Very helpful staff. We camped at Lake Monroe Village in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a clean quiet family campground with some seasonals. The location is close to Lake Monroe just 2 miles from the beach and boat launch. I would definitely return to this park. We camped at Lake Monroe Village in a Travel Trailer.
