Lot was very big and clean. We had full hookup. Every spot had shade but trimmed so the camper was not harmed. Each site had two picnic tables. The lake was beautiful and very peaceful. Overall a very relaxing trip. - Tlead4

LOVE, LOVE this campground! Very clean and well maintained campground. Bathhouses were very clean and shower stalls were very large. Campground host was very courteous and helpful with firewood. We stayed in site 218, which was one of the 90 degree angle sites and can see where it could be difficult especially with large campers and tow vehicles. Large sites, most have some shade afternoon or morning. Great lake with beach access. No Wi-Fi or Internet service at all, however with my iPhone with Verizon service was able to make phone calls and texts. Friend with iPhone with AT&T service had Internet and phone and text. But friend with Android with Verizon wasn't able to get anything including calls and/or texts. - CmcDowell

This is a good park for relaxing, spending time at the beach, biking, swimming (lake), and fishing. Facilities are clean. Store is small and close to lake. A couple of sites are sharp 90 degree turns which made it hard for this new RVer (2nd time) to park. Thankfully a kind neighbor assisted. Staff are courteous and generous with firewood. We have already made reservations to return. - tincansailor

Our first impression was walking into the office. It was shabby and looked like it had not been vacuumed in some time. The girl helping us was very sweet but seemed to have a difficult time getting us set up. We did have reservations. Getting to our site was tight with narrow roads. The whole campground was uncared for. It seemed like there was no pride taken by the owners or by the many permanent residents. Pretty much all the spaces were taken with permanent residences with old run down RVs with blueboard insulation and other makeshift insulation making the place look bad. Again, no pride seemed to be taken in appearance. Our site was a pull-through that seemed to be for overnight and short stays. Muddy and small piles of dirt, long grass and weeds everywhere. We would pass this campground by if we were in the area again unless it was an emergency. It is a shame as the campground has great potential with a little work and pride from the owners. - MaryVT

I stayed at Free Spirit for a week. The rate reflects PA rate. This campground is not big rig friendly. There are trees very close to park roadways in several places. Negotiating the roads both coming in and leaving was difficult. In addition, the sites are no where near level. You should plan to bring plenty of levelers. If I were to return to this area I would try one of the nearby state parks. - 15243

No WiFi, many seasonal campers. Pull Thru available, but small roads to drive and a lot of trees. Some level sites. Campground need some upgrading and paint. Overall: not to bad for one or two nights, beautiful surroundings. - Traveller Excel

Office staff very friendly and helpful. Park is clean and well maintained. Sites are easy to get into. We had a 30 amp pull through site that was long enough to accept our motor home and toad without disconnecting. Lots of restaurants to choose from in Scottsburg just two miles from RV park. - Herb Richards

Just a few minor negatives- the grounds crew could've been friendlier. A smile and nod go a long way.
-there are ALOT of signs saying what you can't do. It's a little depressing
-there charge for EVERYTHING, even mini golf
Positives - the bathrooms/shower houses were super clean
- quiet time was quiet
- when they mowed around the RVs, they were careful not to throw grass on your rv and vehicle. - Rolando

Overnight stay on way south. Road to campground entrance very narrow - use caution. Back section seemed tight for maneuvering a 45' motorhome with tow and I was able to get a site near the entrance. Worked out in that I could get satellite. However, did have to unhook. Staff very accommodating. Quiet. - DavidO

Too pricey for not having full hookups $35.67 and that is with Good Sam discount. WiFi didn't work, too far to walk to restrooms as we were in the back of the park. Nice shaded site. We have a 40' Class A, towing. Roads dusty, no concrete pads at all. Pass this one by if you can. All gravel and the grass we saw isn't worth mentioning. - Ncmax

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

We did a two night trip to view some fall foliage and we where not disappointed. The leaves where past their prime but with the temps in the 80's and sunny the remaining leaves showed us their beauty. The campground was not busy during the week and the camp store had 30% off every thing except ice and firewood. The park is very hilly and is great for hiking, biking and walking. You will have to pay or have a pass to enter the park for the first time. The only low spot was we where invaded by some kind bugs that looked like lady bugs, they seamed to like the warm exterior of the motorhome and then finding their way inside as the temps cooled, we spent the evenings removing them from the inside as we watched the Cubs/Indians games. - Psi500

We have come to Brown County SP many years. A bonus this year was the new shuttle bus between the campground and Nashville sponsored by the General Store. What a great idea for RVers in motor homes as the town is too far to walk and too hilly to bike from the campground! Camping here in the fall is great - even though it rained this year - we still loved bike riding, campfires, and the holiday lit campsites. With this new shuttle it is even better because a new rainy day option is lunch and browsing in the treasure that is Nashville! - cathy8

As folks have said, the sites have electricity only, so load up water as you come in. Beautiful park and very well maintained. Bring your firewood with you as they prefer you leave limbs on the ground. Great little campstore, plenty of hiking trails, most of the rv spaces are small - lots of tent spaces and almost all of the camping spaces are on the main road. Lots of people here on the weekends - sold out and this was October 1st. The views are magnificent. Horse trails - and you can even use their horses, mountain bike trails, nature center, playgrounds and I hear there is a lake here but we didn't go visit it. Overall, we are very impressed with this park and will definitely come back - even though we have a 44 foot 5th wheel and most of the campsites will not accommodate us. - Don Self

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

The park is a great experience but the campground is questionable. Sites are small and close together. It can get muddy here when it rains. Some low spots in the RV sites and the sites do vary quite a bit in length. Best to get an advance look if possible prior to making a reservation. Our site (90) was a pull through and long enough for our motor home plus toad. Water can be a problem as the water spigots are few and far between. - Herb Richards

Seemed to be little to no daily cleaning of the shower houses. They needed some updating. There were some small sinkholes gathering water that needed to be filled in the sites. Finally, there's poor cell service or WiFi. - Rolando

The park itself is quite amazing, and worth the visit, but the campground is hit and miss, unfortunately. While we were there (4th of July weekend, 2015) it had rained heavily and many of the sites were flooded, some so much so that they were barely usable. Our spot (15) was so steep that it took over 2 feet of elevation in the nose to get level, and due to the muddy condition of the spot, our chocks kept slipping, causing the trailer to slowly creep toward the road.
The water hookup required a long extension (it was approx. 30 feet from our camper) but was in good condition. Water is connected to a 4x4 post and has 2 to 4 spigots to serve multiple campsites (each with their own spigot.) The electrical post was in good order and very close to the site. The picnic table was in good condition, but unusable due to the slope of the site. The 'site' was mostly mud, with some straw from previous campers, and the only gravel was at the bottom of the slope. We did have some slippage issue backing up the slope, pushing the camper, but that was primarily due to the wet conditions. Still, more gravel and a better grade would have been most welcome.
The bathrooms were regularly maintained during the holiday weekend, and were acceptable considering how much mud there was. Inconsiderate campers were far more of an issue than park staff, who were diligently trying to keep up, and staying polite and friendly while they were doing it. Be advised that parking can be atrocious. There is apparently no effort to enforce the vehicle limit any longer, and we saw many spots with three vehicles stuffed in, encroaching on the narrow road and making larger campers really work to avoid a problem. Overflow parking is available, but so unused that moss and lichens cover much of the paved surface, so this seems to be a chronic issue.
If you go, be sure to do as much research on your spot as you can - many are challenging (poorly situated, poor drainage, tight turns, steep slopes, etc.) - WrongWayRandall

WiFi nonexistent. For the high price for no sewer hookup makes this a place needing stronger Mgt.
DirecTV not available unless you move to the field-like campground.
Nice kids park, no effort to remedy WiFi issue. Asked them to follow up and not confident this will happen. 50 amp good, cell phone reception good, level gravel sites. Location good with Columbus within 10 minutes. - budwang

Very nice and clean park. Has a number of activities, such as go-cart track, skeet range, rifle range, miniature golf, batting cages, driving range etc. Would definitely do a return visit. - paulbe

Spent Mother's Day weekend here, as the park is close to "Mom", so she and Dad could come visit ;-) . Having grown up in this area, we remember Ceraland as a sort of 'crown jewel' of recreation areas, as it was formerly funded by, and for use by, Cummins employees and their families. It is now open to the public, and they sell annual memberships to use the pool, playgrounds, go-kart track, shelter houses, fitness center, etc.
The campground is about at the level of state park standards in Indiana these days; in the fact that some sites need some gravel (and a couple could use some fill dirt, and bath houses are older but kept pretty clean. All in all, it's a pretty fair value for a full hookup site. There are a few seasonals, but they're pretty nice and well-kept. Most of the sites will require a bit of leveling, but not too bad.
There is a lake, and there are lake-front sites available, but not if you have dogs. The "premium" lake-front sites are in a designated 'no pets' area. Also, the signs and literature state there's no alcohol allowed in the park, which probably cuts down on the loud, intoxicated parties, and that's OK. We just kept ours inside the RV ;-). This weekend was pretty quiet, and the park was less than half full.
There is a minimal camp store on the property, and they sell essentials, including firewood, but the city of Columbus is 10 minutes away for more options. - fastalker64

This is a well kept campground but the sites are very small with shared pedestals for the pull through sites. We stayed at a very busy time so nearly every site was in use including the one next to us. As I mentioned the sites are close; we had about 8" of clearance between ours and the neighbor's slides on the utility side and very little room to park the tow or towed vehicles. Other than the limited space this is a clean, well kept, campground with a helpful staff. The utilities are good and the CATV excellent. - Vermagnuson

The sites in this park are so close together that it makes New York apartment living seem roomy. My 7.5' wide camper was less than 2 feet from my neighbor once we put our slides out.
My power went out 4 times during my stay. It was at first blamed on my plug, so I spent $100 and had their electrician replace it. Power went out 3 more times. Guess it wasn't my plug. - Sprinter3500

Stayed here while visiting relatives in the area. FHU site with cable TV and WiFi. Site was less than level. CG owner worked with me to get the TT as level as possible, even provided concrete blocks to back up my wheel chocks. Bring your long water hose and your electrical extension cords. Some sites are back to back. Heavy rain washed out part of entry road which he repaired immediately. - moderate camper

This is a local park with a majority of Water/Electric sites but have 10 "Full" Hook-up sites. Very Clean park, with 3 playgrounds for kids. The only downside is that the Restrooms are NOT heated or air conditioned. There is a "Camp Host" on site. Water is turned off in Nov. Reservations can be made in advance. They also give discounts to Coast to Coast members. - md_procouple
