Indiana Dunes State Park was full so I ended up staying here. I was under a tree and the site was fairly level. The owner said the hiking trails were closed due to limbs being down & the pool was closed because of recent treatment with chemicals. I didn't use the facilities because I was alone and a little spooked by the obviously lived-in trailers that were very unkempt. Not all of them were that way, but at least three were a mess. It's obvious they're trying because they've built new cabins and new bath houses, but why put your money into that if you're going to leave all the construction rubble behind? The owner told me to look for my own site and if the electric box says OK, it works. Well, I looked and there were no signs anywhere. Fortunately, a worker came around and he tested it for me. Sure enough, dead. So, he tested another and that one was fine. There's a playground for the kids and a pool but it wasn't open. All in all I wouldn't say it was a bad visit but I sure didn't want to stay another day or night. I wouldn't recommend it. We camped at Sand Creek Campground in a Motorhome.

Stopped here for a night. It is about 3 miles off the interstate driving through a neighborhood and cornfields. The turn into the campground is a bit tight for a big rig. The sign is old and advertised a religious camp. The office is sparse, only a desk and a few things for sale. The person in the office was Asian and did not speak much English. He did not ask how big our rig was, just said he had water and electric available. We told him we were over 40ft with our tow vehicle so he gave us a grass site with water and electric. The site was only 20 amp so we asked for another which was 30amp. The electric quit working after about an hour and the office was closed, so we had no power which was hard on our dog. The restrooms were ok. We would not stay here again. We camped at Sand Creek Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This campground is much improved this year. Totally new rest rooms and showers that are very nice. They are tiled. They just needed to be cleaned more often. A new pool was under construction not sure when it will it will be done so call first if this is important. Very roomy sites with some shade. I would stay here again. We camped at Sand Creek Campground in a Travel Trailer.

No maintenance for years, park is falling apart. Says it's a revival park. Yuk, must have been nice when new. It has some unemployed people hanging around, scary. The hand rail into the office sways in the wind, that's the first clue. I'd pee in the woods first before using the bathroom here. We camped at Sand Creek Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Nice park,off the beaten path but easy to find following their signs. Wi-Fi is at the office only. Sites are grassy so not always level but not a major problem. All the sites had picnic tables and fire rings,lots of room to relax. Will stay again on the way through the area. We camped at Sand Creek Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

My family planned to meet with my parents and siblings family at this campground. Once we started seeing some of the reviews, we got extremely nervous and ultimately decided to cancel and stay elsewhere. While we were in the area that week, we drove over to Sand Creek C.G. to see for ourselves how bad this place was. The campsites all seemed to be grassy, decent size and some shaded. None of us recall a playground. We did notice that there was alot of large recreational toys parked on a middle section (boats, older trailers, etc.) We walked into the bathhouse and pool area. This is where all the problems came in. The bathrooms are unbelievable. Tile was missing from the countertops, and from the floors. The ceiling had so many bugs and old water damage that they were bowed in and could collapse at any moment. The ceiling tiles were full of mold, where there was ceiling tile. There was black mold in the shower areas. I would be shocked if the bathhouse has had ANY maintenance OR cleaning in YEARS! It's not even really a matter of updating it, just a matter of upkeep. The pool area was empty. The pool water was not clear. It was very "foggy." The bottom of the pool had a crack across the bottom in need of maintenance. We camped at Sand Creek Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Camper beware: this place is very run down. The bathrooms are awful! The kids went into the green pool but it was also awful. I will never go back and wanted to write this review to save someone else from wasting their money here. Oh, forgot to mention their wood prices are $1.00 per piece. We camped at Sand Creek Campground in a Tent Trailer.

The playground equipment is rusty, unstable, and questionable and we would only let our daughter use the swings. The pool was being shocked on our first night and even when it was "safe" to use had an odd purple color. One set of bathrooms were locked. The only usable bathroom had molding ceiling tiles and were generally filthy. Overall, most of the facilities were old, run down, and showing a lack of any maintenance. The campsites were open and sunny. The campsites were grass and pull-thru. If you were camping in a tent you could get in shade. Our campsite had 6 to eight inch deep tire ruts making moving our pop-up a pain as well as always risking a twisted ankle when outside. We camped at Sand Creek Campground in a Tent Trailer.

Problems with English. CG is a disaster. Nothing works and no one cares. Would not stay there again period. We camped at Sand Creek Campground in a Motorhome.

This was a rather run down campground. The swimming pool had an interesting green color to it. This had been a church camp at one point and converted to an RV park. The sites are not defined but just hookup areas in a field. The electric boxes are for two sites and a little under powered if both sites are filled. We camped at Sand Creek Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
