This park did not suit our needs. We are a senior couple traveling through, staying one night, towing a car. Check-in time on Sundays and holidays is 5:00 PM, which we did not know. So we waited in our coach over an hour in the hot sun waiting for our reserved site to become available. No pull through sites were available when we reserved a few weeks prior to arrival. So after unhitching the car and getting in our site 47 (in full sun), all we wanted was a shower and peace and quiet. The shower was awful. Cement floor, push a button inside the shower stall for 20 seconds of lukewarm water. No temperature or water pressure control. No place to put your soap or shampoo. Very low water pressure made rinsing my hair a long slow process. No exhaust fan in shower area. Very old building. That said, this would be great for families with little kids. Lots of children riding bikes and playing in the grassy area. - Breezy2011

We only stayed one night, but we will probably come again. The campground was very clean and the sites are all pretty nice. We were able to choose our site and picked a pull through for convenience. There is one bathhouse pretty centrally located. The other facility is a pit/vault toilet. There is a nice playground on the site. Our grand daughter enjoyed it. - 4stringdude

Our first night after the pick up of our rental we were at Mounds. Good spot for the first night. Quiet and in the nature of the state park. - Molenwerk

Lovely park a couple of miles off I-69 with outstanding staff. I called ahead to let them know I would arrive late - when we rolled in at 10pm, my package was on the door, an escort showed us to the site, and a couple other staff helped us get backed in. Bathrooms/showers are nice, and well placed in the park. There is no pool, but a large pond with designated swimming area and catch & release fishing. - Cousin Eddy

The staff told us how to get to the park. The road was quite narrow and tree-lined. Upon arrival, we were escorted to our site. There was mud but there had been a lot of rain. We were on the first pull thru site across from the playground which had a nice "front yard". Garbage service was curbside pickup. The utilities were placed ok but the sewer ran uphill. We didn't use any facilities and won't comment on them. The antenna picked up some channels but we couldn't get NBC or CBS at all. The wifi was decent. The grass was mowed while we were here. Two days after arrival a fifth wheel was placed beside us. This left about six to eight feet of space between us. The sites are difficult to get into because the sites are perpendicular to the street. The sign at the entrance asks RVers to take the windy narrow road when you leave, but Skyview Drive is a MUCH better way to enter and exit the park. I don't know if the community requests that RVers take the windy road, but we scraped against tree branches entering the park and it was unnecessary when there was a simpler, quicker, and potentially less costly way to enter the park. The park itself is ok. We might look elsewhere first, but would return if we couldn't find another park. - Tammy7

This is nice looking, and seemingly popular, campground. There is a lake/pond with a small beach, an inflatable jumping pad, playground, and roads safe enough for kids to ride bikes. One evening, they had a band that played a variety of different music that was entertaining. Each site has a picnic table and fire pit. There are mature trees that are pretty, and in our site, did not interfere with our satellite. Water is treated, and it is very soft. Electric iffy - if we ran all 3 A/Cs eventually the breaker would trip. We haven't had any problem before or after running all 3. The sites are a mixed bag - long, short, level or not, concrete, or gravel and grass. Roads are narrow for maneuvering into certain sites, and there are many speed bumps. Verizon is all over the place anywhere from 1X to 3g to 4g with 1 bar. The WII FI never worked, ever. There are trains! They have rules, which are appreciated, but they are over the top. Let's just say that you better keep the pass they issue in the rear view mirror or the gestapo will find you. No matter that said pass may have been torn and was lying in the front dash until we had time to tape it. The biggest gripe was our site. It was in a low area and had a wooden deck on the passenger side. We could only open the bay doors about 1/3 of the way before hitting the deck. You had to sit down to get to any of the doors. We arrived on a Friday and asked immediately to be moved. The site they offered was very unlevel - the motorhome in the site had both front tires off the ground so we declined. On Monday when it cleared out, we tried again. Asked for a new site and said we didn't mind moving more than once. Even if we ended up back in the original site. No can do they said. But, they could do! We were there for 12 days and watched which sites were empty, and there was more than one for several days in a row. We don't get it. - Free

I'm on a seasonal site here at Walnut Ridge. It's about an hour from my house, and my sister and brother in law also come out and camp--our schedules are different enough that we rarely overlap. Therefore, it's perfect for us.
Walnut Ridge the campground pre-dates the RV dealership of the same name. Apparently, once Gary Hart bought the campground way back when, they ended up selling a few campers here and there and the idea for the RV dealership was born. Most people know of the dealership first--it is a very busy place these days. There is a service center as well. If you buy from the dealership, you can spend 2 free days camping at the campground. It's a nice way to become familiar with your new purchase.
I did buy from Walnut Ridge, but I'd no idea at the time where I was going to store it. When I saw the campground and learned I could keep my new TT on a seasonal site for about the same price as paying for yearly storage, I was sold.
I love camping here. Having ready access to my trailer without having to move it is nice. It's a very quiet campground, with lots of friendly people. The grounds are kept very clean and they have lots of activities. There's mini golf, a playground and a very nice pool. The store sells ice cream. WiFi is very good. I love the trees and the birds, though not too fond of the squirrels and their destructive ways.
There are pull-through sites for temporary visitors, which I've used. I can pull my trailer out to go places, and find the roads and paths to be well kept. There aren't any poorly kept sites to be seen.
My sole complaint is the lack of sewer hookup, but I recognize that it's impossible given the hills of the place. They do offer a pump service, but I got my own honeywagon and empty that way. It's not bad. They treat you like family here, and I love it. - drdit92

This has more seasonal campers in it than anyone else. They have an area set up for people who have bought a new camper from them to stay for 2 nights free. Not sure if you can pick a different area to "camp" in there, but never saw anyone other than seasonal campers in other areas. There isn't any sewer hookup,only water & electric, and its hard to dump your tanks how they have it set up. It's on a hill, on a turn, and its some maneuvering to get it lined up to dump. While you are doing that, the road is pretty much blocked. The 2 days we were there, our sink, & toilet turned brown from the water. TWO DAYS! The campground is clean, is quiet, looks really nice though. If you want to go swimming, it costs $5 a person. I never knew any place that charged to swim if you are camping. I was told by the man in the office that the rates are compatible with all the campgrounds in that area. They aren't. Check for yourself. I would never stay there unless it was an emergency. It's overpriced. - happy2013camper

Stayed here two nights due to weather. Closing on the 14th for the season. Beautifully kept area inside and out. Showers were not new but very clean and well maintained. We appear to be the only ones left here that are not full time. Staff is most helpful and has a wonderful supply of tools if you forgot your saw, etc. I agree that the dump station is a strange spot on the way out. Easy access, cement pads for pull through, friendly, and even they escorted us to our site. I would return. - Cape Cod

This park has a 10 pull through 50amp sites in an area without trees, with most of the campground's sites occupied by season campers in a woods. As in the past little has been done to correct the interior roads and pad conditions. If it rains your site will be water covered since the road is slightly higher than the campsites. Needs work, but it is close to the Indianapolis north side where we had an appointment early the next morning. This trip the voltage at the pedestal was at about 105-110V, not that way in the past. - Teacher's Pet

This park was a complete mud hole. Owner said the drive hadn't been graded yet, but it needed major stone in the huge holes. WiFi was non existent even though the owner said it could be spotty. I asked about showers when I made reservations and was told there was a shower house. There was but it was closed part of the time and the shower was unusable on the women's side. Owners were not friendly. Only plus it's close to the interstate and to shopping. Will not stay here again. - Diplomat 07

I had read a few of the previous Glowood reviews and noted the rough roads into the park. However, I foolishly thought the problems would be fixed by now. Wrong! I called the cg office and was specific that we needed a pull thru for a 38 foot motorhome and car and didn't want to unhook for the night. Spot was available. Come on in.
The internal roads were narrow, mud-filled craters.
The check-in office was a creepy, dimly-lit opening beneath a porch. The owner took my money and pointed me in the direction of my site.
The sharp curve preceding the end spot was muddy everywhere with deep, unavoidable ruts. This was the last site available. No way could we make the curve and pull thru. At this point, the back right tires of the coach began to sink into the mud. I quickly checked to see if we could go straight and leave, but the pull thru site seemed to be the only way out. On foot, I raced back to the office to see if the owner could suggest an exit. He said no one had ever had this problem with my site. Very untruthful. Maybe a class B van could get thru but not anything bigger. He then offered to pull our motorhome and car out with his SUV if we were stuck in the mud. David and Goliath? Clueless? He even offered my money back and a little extra for my trouble. So generous considering our perilous plight and his negligence in putting us into a spot he should have known was unacceptable. Who does that?
He explained that they'd had rain, and mud-filled potholes had formed. I realized that these were not from a recent event. These were from years of neglect. Later, I read older reviews, one from June, 2008. Hint: read all the reviews.
We finally pulled in, not even bothering to level. Just connected the electric and were glad we could leave in the morning.
This owner has no conscience or ethics. Takes money and delivers nothing. Keep driving. - User3617

First, the good: The camp hosts get an A+ for hospitality. The location is very nice, with lots of tall trees and shade. It was easy to get to from the highway, but far enough away not to have to listen to highway traffic. Now, the bad: The site was horrible. It was overgrown with weeds and tall grass and not even close to level. The utilities were a mess. The electric box had some bare wires hanging out of it, and the host speculated it was because someone had cut off the 50 amp connection. I experienced several power blackouts for a few seconds at a time during my stay. The water connection was a filthy hose. I didn't use it. The sewer was buried under some tall grass, and fairly far to the front of the site, so I could not hook up to it unless I unhitched the truck. There was no WiFi and only a weak Verizon signal. Given the condition of the utilities and the park in general, the nightly rate is too high. The park is mostly permanent residents. One of the permanent residents' dogs was wandering around pooping on my site, which was especially concerning because the grass was so unkempt. I did not want to walk around on the site. Also, the dog would run up and yap at me if I exited the trailer, and its owners seemed unconcerned with that. I will not return to this park. - KAP99

This is the second time we have stayed here. The sites are easy, grassy pull-throughs, and reasonably level. Each site has a picnic table, and a lot of shade. The owners are nice people- they prefer if you call 30 minutes before you arrive, so they can be there to meet you, but if you don't, you can just pick a site. The campground has quite a few permanent people, some mobile homes, some permanent trailers. There are no amenities, but we like staying here because its very convenient to Ball State University and the town of Muncie. - Soos

The park is what the name implies, full of big, really big, oak trees. It is a very nice older park with very long gravel sites scattered among the big trees. Most are nearly level with one or two small shims to do the job. Owner/manager is very accommodating. Will stay again when passing through the area as it is only 4 miles off the interstate. - Bullrider

Rate shown is their "in after 3 and out before 10" rate. This park is one easy day's drive from our home and we almost always stay there when heading west. Staff is helpful and friendly although office is usually closed when we get there. Utilities work well and we are able to pull in quite a few TV stations from the antenna. Site could have used a little more gravel and could have been more level but it was the end of the season and we never have that problem in the spring/summer when we visit. - SandyA

This is a wonderful family park. We have never stayed in a Yogi Bear Park before due to the huge number of kids that usually come. My hat is off to the staff for all the games and activities they plan. We rarely saw any kids, even on the rainy days. The pull through sites are grass or gravel and very level. They are set up as buddy sights. The staff went out of their way to help with anything you need. The owners were lovely people to meet. Yes I tasted iron in the water but we had a filter on so nothing got stained. There was some road noise but not enough to bother us. - esta34950

1st time back in several years, returned due to upgrade of electric hookup to include 50amp. As with most Indiana State Parks, this park is well maintained. Service locations are acceptable, but 50 feet of water hose is needed for shared water faucet between sites. As full timers we carry 100 feet of hose at all times. Our site was easy to level on, others were uneven front to back. - Teacher's Pet

Summit Lake Reprise
We reviewed Summit Lake in 2013, and were not terribly impressed with the park facilities. Our recent visit indicated that things are looking up!
The electrical problem has been remedied; campground 'A' has been completely re-wired with all new boxes and 50a service. The bathrooms are still mediocre, but they've been cleaned up, a fresh coat of paint, and other minor improvements have been made to spruce up the facilities. The showers still need better drainage and they pretty much drain into the hallway floor, but that's an engineering issue, not cleaning.
DNR staff was walking through the campground on Friday and Saturday night, introducing themselves as security, and indicating they'd be on property until 4am. They were personable fellas and it was nice to know that staff was 'minding the store'. In addition, DNR vehicles regularly passed through the campground. We've noticed this trend at other state parks this year, so there might be a new directive in order from the state.
The trails are easy (although described as moderate), the lake has many options for fishing from the bank, and staff shared that resurfacing the interior roads is on the horizon, as well as new gravel at the campsites, and a re-wiring of the electrical in campground 'B'. Seems like they're intent on upgrading this property.
Campground A is mostly level and open, and the sites have shared, fresh water posts (two to a post). We needed 75' of hose to connect, but it's nice to have a fresh water hookup at a state park in Indiana. Campground B is more rolling, and few sites in B would accommodate more than a pop-up or tent.
We are pleased with our recent visit to Summit Lake and will return. - fastalker64

We had one of the few pull-thru's. The park was well-groomed, the people were friendly, and the lake was clear and beautiful. Fun to ride our bikes! Our site was without shade, but there were other ones available in wooded areas. We would definitely stay there again. - Jeff Jangerous

We stayed fairly close to comfort station, and found it a busy traffic site. Well shaded, and good water, trash removal, had picnic tables and campfires are allowed. Most sites are pretty well graveled and reasonably easy to level a camper. They have added water view cabins, and most of the park provides for easy fishing access, and water view.
Friendly staff, well security patrolled. Really need to improve the sewer dump station. It would really make it a better park, if they installed sewer connections and upgraded the restroom and shower facilities. - Jacobsen

Stayed here due to the close proximity to the Muncie 70.3 race. Mostly seasonal campers. The daily RV sites have only a 30 amp outlet and water hookup. They are generally narrow, unlevel and scattered with trash. Can't figure why folks don't pick up after themselves because there are large trash cans every couple sites. The grass isn't mowed often. They have primitive tent site closer to the one bathroom/shower. Although the bathroom is old it was fairly clean. The staff is friendly and helpful although they allowed another RV to take the site I'd reserved because they were staying longer and they said our 40ft would fit on a site that was made for a 20ft. This isn't a place you would come to "camp" but if you're coming to race or boat/fish it fits the bill for an overnight or two. - cpahog

Cornerstone is a routine favorite of ours. There are several sizes of lots, some shady, and some sun. Sites near the entrance are 50/30 amp full hookup and tend to have less shade. Sites behind the entrance are 30 amp only with water/electric only. Sites are gravel and most are level. The CG tends to fill up quickly on weekends and holidays, so you want to book in advance. Campground owners are warm and welcoming. They work hard to make camper's stays the best possible.
They do accept Passport America, but this can be hit and miss on pricing. We have gotten this price during the week as I recall. Showers and bathrooms are clean. They do deliver very good pizza to your site which is great with a crew of kids when setting up. The playground "gizmo" is the biggest one I have ever seen. Our kids get lost in it frequently. The pool is very nice when it is open.
The only real drawback is the road noise from I-70. The CG is located across the pond, but the pavement on the interstate there is concrete, and the trucks can be rather noisy.
The CG owners have addressed the flooding issues by tiling many of the camp sites this spring. I haven't been there in a good downpour, but it should help that issue tremendously.
Of all the CG's in East Central Indiana, this is our go-to campground. - scarter4work

We can concur with some of the comments from before. This campground seems to not have any real set rates. They say they are Passport America, but we have paid $22, $28 and this time $45 for the a 50amp, full hook up site on stops during the past year. The sites are well worth the earlier rates, but way over priced for narrow, sloping gravel pads with all hookups at the rear of the pad. Will opt for one of the other options within 10 miles on future semi annual trips. We were checked in by the owner each time who is very nice and helpful and each time assure the Passport rate was applied. There are 13 or 14, 50 amp full hookup sites, all the other are 30 amp with water only, under heavy tree cover. - Teacher's Pet

Very nice, well run park. There are not many full hookup sites, so if you need one make a reservation. Many sites are under heavy tree cover with only 4 or 5 being satellite friendly. This campground is a Christian Retreat Center in it's own description and has very nice facilities. There are meeting facilities and a large bunk house on the grounds. - Teacher's Pet

First the positives: next to a river, close to a golf course and shopping. The negatives: Over priced for the facilities, poorly kept with long grass and very poor restrooms with very primitive showers. This camp is not very big rig friendly with limbs and power lines that should be higher. Get a firm price before accepting a spot. We were quoted $35 when we made our advance reservation. The price jumped up to $38 when we arrived. We mentioned membership to FMCA and Good Sam so he discounted down to $35! I like to feel like I can trust the camp ground owner to shoot straight. We will not stay here again. It's just to primitive. - Beech35p

We loved this charming campground! The price was amazing, especially for a full hookup, and it was cleaner than the last state park we visited. The facilities are not modern, but are well-maintained. We camped less than 20 ft from the riverbank! Everyone was very friendly. We can't wait to go back and camp there again! - HomeIsWhereYouParkIt

This is the type of park you'll hate or find it satisfactory. We wanted to be near Purgatory Golf Course and this is right across the street. They have very limited big rig sites but we were able to get 50 amps on the river. The park is not kept very pristine but it's acceptable. No amenities were obvious including Wi-Fi. Plenty of room to maneuver. Lots of old campers and full time residents. We would stay here again because of the location and it did have a certain peacefulness. Golf course is great! - Team Asphalt
