9 RV Parks near Cicero, Indiana
Sep 2016 - $30.00
We really like this park. Concrete sites, full hookups, WIFI. Everything worked fine. Plenty of room to get into site and plenty of space between you and the next camper. The day we were to arrive, they were replacing a water pump and the park employee called us to let us know so if we needed to stop for water before we got there we could. We thought that was very nice of her. The pump was fixed when we arrived so no issues. There was construction on some type of a bridge over the river in the campground that was rather noisy starting early in the morning. We'd definitely stay here again. Our GPS did take us past the entrance for some reason, but there are signs and we should've been watching for them. - jacknpeg

This is a highly rated campground run by the local county. It's in a lovely tree lined area near the river. We were really looking forward to staying here. BUT, on a nice early fall weekend it's a disappointment. There are two issues: 1) It's JAMMED with people, cars, dogs running loose, 3 year olds on bikes and large family gatherings spread out all over every available blade of grass. That's OK, but when the sites are really tight it's uncomfortable. Next to our site is what appears to be a family reunion. They've rented 7 or 8 sites and have set up a large kitchen, gathering place and parked 12- vehicles that I can count. There must be 35 people next to us.
The 2nd issue is one of the charms of the place - the River. It's flooded through here and everything is drenched, muddy and wet. We're here on a dryish day - but we had to move from our reserved site because it was under water with no way into our out of the RV without wading water or going through deep mud.
I'm guessing if you came here in the middle of the week it would be almost empty and pretty easy to find a nice site to enjoy.
Looking at the campgrounds near this spot, I don't see any better place. So, maybe this is the best on the northeast side of Indy?? - Creativepart

We really enjoyed this park. Level concrete sites with small patio area. Right on the river with lots of space between sites. It is convenient located to shopping of all kinds. Gated during off hours also. - Justice12t

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

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

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

Stayed here before and returned. Spacious with nice size sites. Staff is wonderful. All the utilities worked great and they pick up the trash. Had a huge rain storm but drainage was super. - hug448844

A combination "Seasonal" Park with plenty of 'deck attached' RV's and Weekend Getaway Destination, this family owned park provides everything an RV Enthusiast might need. Featuring the cheapest Propane refill station in the county, Timberline Valley RV Resort provides the perfect stop for an overnight guest, Ball State Tailgater or season long visitor. For those with the desire to cast a line, the park boasts a well stocked fishing pond: complete with trophy sized large mouth bass. The spacious sites leave acres of landscaped grass between you and the neighbors, and the on-site staff frequently check in to ensure every moment of your stay meets or exceeds expectations. We certainly plan to revisit this park the next time we visit Muncie, Indiana! - Todd and Heather

Simple back-in parking spots along roadway, which could be tight when campground is full. Friendly, helpful staff. Bathrooms were dated but clean. We would stay again. - CO2RV

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

Water/Electric site rate. Stayed here while attending a baseball tourney in Indy. Park staff is great, every area of the park we used was clean and well maintained. Our site was grass, but fairly level and did not flood after ~1 inch of rain. Some turns might be a little tight for a big rig, but manageable. Wi-Fi was the best of any campground we have stayed. - Cousin Eddy

This is an easy to get to park right off of interstate 70. Follow the signs across a small bridge and make a u-turn between buildings to sign-in. Be aware that many of the pull-through sites are side-by-side. So if you want to share your patio with the unit next to you, these are for you. However, if you are like me, I would rather have my own patio, which are provided by the deluxe sites and some back-in sites. Otherwise this is a lovely park. - USA by RV

We stay here several times a year while visiting family, since it is better than the alternatives in the area, but we feel it is overpriced for what you get. The interior roads and sites are broken concrete/gravel, uneven in spots. Some places are tight and big rigs are best to avoid the office check-in area and come in the back entrance. There are 2 distinct areas in the park. The one closest to the office has smaller sites, but have been recently upgraded with small shared patios. The other area has longer, bigger sites, but no facilities in this section. The deluxe sites have concrete patios, some have swings. There's a new splash pool area this year and a new ice cream parlor. - cincychic

After reading other reviews, thought it couldn't be that bad - but it is. Grouchy, slow check in. GS discount only good for one night. Grass up to your knees, if you want it cut, you must borrow their mower and do it yourself. Muddy 'beach' Gross indoor pool. Old moldy trailers everywhere. Trash sitting around. Water was BROWN. Electric went out on us twice. Sewer hookup was crushed. Picnic table sitting in a rectangle of mud from previous occupant's mat and dog run. Management doesn't care. - cincychic
Jul 2016 - $39.00
We stayed here in our 40 foot rig. The site was unlevel, and the grass needed to be mowed. All utilities were at the back of site. The water had a funny smell.
There appears to be many full-time residents throughout the park. And most were not being maintained. - Sandy Turtle

This place is a fooler. The check-in area looks very nice. Then we were escorted via golf cart driver to the far back of the campground. I think there are only a very few of the 345 sites that aren't lived in full time. Why do I say this? There were many sites that were adorned with all styles of picket fences, multi-colored kids ride-on toys, multiple potted plants, etc. It resembled something between a gypsy camp and a run down mobile home park. As we were pulling into our spot a low tree branch scraped our roof, so I called and requested one a few sites over without a tree. While we were backing into that site a full-time neighbor camper couple never took their eyes off of us. It was creepy, to say the least. It gets better...there were many kids yelling and screaming into the late evening. This is not a place you want to camp at, even if it had level sites, which they were not. We did not have a toad vehicle. It would have been very difficult in this place. I did not save my receipt, so I put in an estimate of the one night cost. We did not use any of their restroom or laundry facilities. - CAcamping

Older park with lots of permanent or seasonal campers that had not moved in years. Bathroom had not been cleaned all weekend. Muddy around campsites. Caters to those who are there seasonally. Rough road to go uphill to itinerant sites. - Al Z
Sep 2016 - $22.00
Very poor restrooms & showers. Had laundry room but there were only 2 washers & 2 dryers, all in beginning rusting condition, for 400 sites. Site was muddy with large holes (dangerous if one stepped in one at night). There were trees on much of the site but not on the rows of RV sites where we were located. Picnic table was in poor condition; we chose not to use it. Wifi did not work, except at a table just outside of the office. I went to a nearby county library (beautiful facility) to get adequate wifi to prepare and upload my blog post. - BShearer

Very disappointing stay. Sites are right up against each other, picnic tables gross, most permanent sites looked abandoned. Dump stations either no water to flush hose/tank or located in areas between permanent site campers making them inaccessible. Free wifi only available on one side of the park. Family fun park looks amazing, the same attention to detail needs to be directed to the campsites. Good SAMs discount not good for the weekends. - Camper McStahl
