8 Parks near Brownsburg, Indiana
Jul 2016 - $45.00
This RV park is only open during racing events that are at the track across the street and at the Indy Motor Speedway, so about 30 days per year.
The park is beautiful and very well laid out. The is grass at every site and 50 amp electric. They have a double dump station and water station.
We attended the Brickyard 400, and stayed here as it was only 8 miles to the race track, much closer than other places. Though they might have been a little less as far as space rent goes, the convenience of Raceview made it worth the extra money for us.
If you are attending any race in the area we highly recommend staying here. - prstlkid

I'm staying here for the Labor Day week NHRA Nationals. Being a gearhead, I frequently camp "at the track" at quite a few different motorsport events and I find this place to be quite a nice experience. And the event package price of $400, when spread out over the 8 nights of the event and considering that this is an event-oriented campsite, is pretty reasonable. The campground and the spots are fairly level, the roads are gravel and smooth and there is well maintained grass everywhere. I'll stay here again. I've paid as much before and gotten much less. - wazafarmer

This is a campground in a field across from O'Reilly Raceway Park. There are some shaded sites along 2 tree lines. The rest of the campground is open. This is a race-oriented crowd, so be aware of the fireworks and music in the evenings. There is an sanitation dump for RVs. A short walk to the drag strip. If you're going to the oval track the walk is considerably longer. Generators are allowed. - revrnd

We stayed here for four nights in the notorious "Coke Lot" in May 2016. It was our first time to the Indy 500 and we had a fabulous time! All the horror stories we had heard about this lot did not manifest for us in any way. But there are quite a few reasons our stay was so great. Here are the tips: Line up early on the first day to gain entrance (5-6am). This is THE most important thing to do to ensure you get a spot away from the all-night partying debauchery. Show your Handicapped placard if you have one (or plead to placed there) and you will get a prime space on the NorthEast side of the lot, which backs up to a small stream. There will be no campers behind you and the lot on the other side of the stream is only used for day parking on race day = nice and quiet! There is a road directly in front of you = no campers. In fact, the green space in front of us beyond the gravel road did not fill up with tent campers until the day before. Our area was lined with wonderful RV'ers whom were older (like us) and incredibly friendly. All of the craziness was on the other side of the lot, where mostly everyone was tent camping. The noise was never a problem, because of it being off in the distance. (Certainly fun to go for a walk at night, though!) We were a short walk to the track. As others have mentioned, no hookups whatsoever, but water trucks, pump out trucks and ice vendors readily available. The first two night were virtually calm, as most people really don't show up until Sat. Our experience was amazing and we now know why the Indy 500 is "The Greatest Spectacle in Racing"! - jensenly

When I decided to camp at IMS for the 2014 Indy 500, I could not find any information or reviews for their lots available with electric. All I could find was about the notorious "Coke" lot, which is first-come, first-served, no electricity and 4 nights of mayhem. So, I wanted to write this review in order that first time campers might have some insight into the camping options at IMS with electric. We stayed in lot 3P, which is a paved parking lot on 16th street directly across from the Speedway. When I arrived, we were greeted, then a staff member escorted us to a site and connected our electricity. Electricity was provided through onsite generators which ran 24 hours a day. Although this noise was constant, we get used to it and overall, ,the noise level was more than acceptable. We went to bed every night by 11:00 and had no trouble sleeping. For those who needed it, fresh water delivery was available and onsite sewage pump outs as well. This was not a luxury camping experience by any means, but our expectations were exceeded in terms of convenience and atmosphere. We walked to the track in a couple of minutes and enjoyed our neighbors without having to deal with out of control partying. Please understand, there was plenty of good times happening in this lot, but things stayed reasonable and ended each evening at a reasonable hour. We had a spot reserved and 24 hour staff onsite. It was a bit pricey, but worth every penny in terms of convenience. - Phil from Akron

Lot 4: Our home for the Brickyard 400 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. One of the only times a year we " rough it." No electric or water hookups, so conserve what's in the tank and make sure you have empty black/grey tanks because there are no dumpstations either. It sounds bad, but we love it! Bring your generator if you want air conditioning though. It gets pretty hot out here. - Jason & Jennifer

As others said, it is hard to find parks convenient to visiting most urban areas. The Fairgrounds campground are fine for a reasonably secure place to stay when visiting family/friends, etc. It is NOT a resort! But nice to have 50 amp and w/sewer. There is a reasonably priced washer/dryer set in each restroom. Sites near the restroom are best suited for very small RVs or tents as they are unlevel but the rest are reasonable. Sites are EXTREMELY narrow (about 11') if you really follow the designations, but everyone takes 2 spaces and then there is no problem. Over the 4th of July weekend about 2/3 full, but would be impossible for most if they started forcing the spacing. - BandD

Enter off of Fall Creek, gate 6, was pretty easy. There was a car auction when we pulled in and there was one site left. Luckily it wasn't too bad but looking at most others they looked very un-level and extremely close together. Every other one will have hookups on wrong side. Water and electric worked fine but sewer was in a very bad spot. Would not stay here again. - cwier

We stayed here during the State Fair when the rates are slightly higher. An excellent place to stay and catch free shuttles to the Fair. We had FHU's with 50 amp service on a grassy/sunny site. Entrance on 46th street was easy and convenient. Great location to visit Indianapolis. - gptexas

Small, homey campground. Big rig sites are narrow. We stayed there several months, at a rate of $350 a month, in 2006 and 2007. Working-campers welcome. Arrangements can be made to winter there, although the owners go to TX for the winter. - Working Full timer

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
Jun 2014 - $27.00
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

This is a large RV park that is laid out in several sections. We were in a 19 site area in the back that had all long, level, gravel pull-through sites with full hookups and 30/50 amp. Sites are close together but there is enough area around the park to go for a walk and also walk a large dog. Office hours are limited in the winter but my phone call was returned promptly, I was able to make a reservation over the phone, and detailed campground information was waiting for me on arrival. The wifi worked on our laptop but not on the cell phones. Located convenient to the freeway and the Indy Motor Speedway. - JoyceM

When arriving, you'll turn from State Road 37 onto Edgewood Avenue. You will make an immediate right turn into the park. You will see what looks like a single family home which is the office. It may seem obvious but it wasn't for us! If they installed an "enter" sign, I think that would help. We stayed one week. The weekly rate is $186 but add on a 7% sales tax AND 10% county tax. We paid $217 total. This park is an easy drive to downtown Indy, various sports venues and the Indy Motor Speedway. As always, when you stay close to a city, there are going to be trade-offs. In this case, the park is adjacent to a busy highway and there is a fire station next door. However the section closest to the highway appears to be only long-term folks. And, surprisingly, we hardly ever heard a fire siren - maybe 3 times during the week. I suspect the fire trucks don't turn on the siren until they get to the highway. The section for short-term stays is away from the highway distanced by a nice fishing lake, large grassy area and the main office. You can still hear a low-level hwy buzz but it's really not bad. Nearly all short-term sites are pull-through with plenty of space for big rigs with toads. The CG was full while we were there so we had a back-in. We still had sufficient space and even a view of the lake. The office staff was proficient and friendly with reservations and check-in. The CG maintenance staff was very nice. The long-term section is well cared for and the the folks there were also very nice. Verizon cell and Sprint Mifi worked great. Obtaining a DirecTV signal was no problem although there are some trees in the pull-thru section so you might make a point to request a sat friendly site if it's important. All hook-ups worked perfectly and water pressure was fine. CG wifi was hit or miss (typical for an rv park). Given our need to be in Indianapolis, we were very happy with this park and enjoyed our stay. We would definitely stay here again if in the area. - GottaGoNow

Good Sam rate for one night. There was only one site available when we made a reservation. The site was an unattractive, narrow, back-in site that was all gravel. There are pull-thru sites that have grass and are more attractive. The site was a FHU, 50 amp site. We had good Verizon cell/MiFi reception and good satellite reception. There is easy access to I-465. In a pinch, we would stay here again. - Dave51

Made reservation for 50 amp pull. Site was sloped too much to level, had to disconnect tow car to squeeze out of site. Getting out of site was inches away from impossible. Horse flies made it impossible to be out with our dog. Ok for smaller rvs or campers if you don't mind being attacked by horseflies. Would not recommend campgrounds. Didn't see rest of park. - Tiffin Allegro

First, it is not big rig friendly. While the sites are paved, most have a slope, and way too many trees near the pavement. Our site, a pull-through #47, was almost impossible to get into. We could not enter in the direction we were supposed to because of trees blocking access. We had to go around the loop and enter from the opposite direction. This put our patio on the wrong side for access to the fire pit and picnic tables. Trees were too close to be able to extend the awning. If we would have been able to enter the correct way, we would not have been able to extend our slideouts. All the water spigots we saw except for one near the entrance were not threaded for a hose. Even though we did not need them, the showers in our area were locked because of no hot water. There was a group of campers in site 59 right next to us. They had one fifth wheel and a tent but there were usually 4-5 vehicles parked there. They were extremely loud and continued well into the early morning. The adults were allowing underage kids to drive their vehicles around the campground. There were no rangers around. We had a reservation for next month but have cancelled it due to the lack of access for our motorhome. - User3125

Lieber State Rec area is a hidden gem in the Indiana park system. The sites are very wooded - so lots of shade. It has both a beach and a pool (aquatic center) - even a water slide. Fishing in the lake too. Showers were a bit dated - only negative. Weekday rate was a great value - and not crowded during the weekdays. - User2654

Nice family oriented facility. We arrived after dark when the office was closed, but they had all our papers and pass outside for us. No trouble getting in with our class C motorhome, but take it easy on the first road to the right. We had a full hookup. You more than likely will need a plastic sewer hose support for your sewer hookup and doughnut as the PVC was just a pipe with no threaded fitting. Wi-fi was supposed to coming from the barn, but we were so far away that our iPhones/iPad would not pick up the signal. My Macbook did find the signal. A lot of full-timers in the park, but most people around us were short-timers like us. Lots of golf carts.
Some reviews complained of uneven lots, but ours was so good that when we went into Lebanon to shop and came back I pulled back into the slot and got it dead on level. I found that there is a bubble level built into the Compass app on iPhone and it works pretty good.
There a activities on-site, but we did not partake in any. We missed the Thorntown "Changing of the Leaves" festival by one week. Lebanon had a festival in their downtown square.
Owners were nice and helpful. The office/store had some DVDs to rent as we left ours home by mistake. Despite heavy rain on 2nd night the roads remained in good shape. Didn't have any power problems.
We would stay here again. - TomAndKathy

Huge park with lots of seasonal campers. We visited my sister who is staying there for the summer. Did not partake in any activities although there was lots going on. - rockfarmer

Very large RV park.. Looks like lots of summer residents-loads of stuff for kids and adults to do. Lots were wide enough altho not much for shade.Would have given a 10 except very narrow streets for big rigs. Easy to side swipe vehicles parked in front of RV if not very careful. No Wi-Fi.. somewhat slow Verizon signal due to fact park lies in low lands. Would recommend for a longer family visit for sure. We stayed 4 days. - openrange
