9 RV Parks near Cicero, Indiana
Jul 2017 - $21.00
This is a Hamilton County park with concrete sites & roads. Our site was a back-in on the rear loop of the campground. Our site was just long enough for our 34' fifth wheel & allow us to park in front. Some sites are shorter. It would be nice if the road in the rear loop was a little wider. There were several sites with deep holes next to the road from previous vehicles backing in to sites. Most sites seem to share a hookup for electric & water. We observed many people pull into the site so the hookups would be on the proper side. We spent a week here & saw many vacant sites during the week. However, on the weekend, the park completely filled up. Use caution when driving thru the park on weekends because there are kids everywhere. The camp hosts do try to enforce the 5 mph speed limit. The park sits right next to the White River & mosquitoes were out in force during our stay. The shower house is at the front of the park. There are restrooms at the rear of the park, but no showers. TV reception OTA was fine, but the wifi was slow & next to unusable on the weekend. We would use this campground again, but would probably try to avoid the weekend. - c lewis

This is a great place to stay if you are passing through or live close by. The campground is well kept and attractive, and our site was very level and shaded. Plenty of space between sites. Plenty of things to do. Hook ups were fine but on the second day, our water turned very rusty. We have filters so it was okay. Our site was big enough for our 25' trailer but we had to park the truck sideways next to the road. After raining all night, it was surrounded by a huge puddle and we didn't see where there was any overflow parking. Minor inconveniences. We did have trouble with our reservation, no email confirmation. They sent one when I called but it was for a different site - basically the same, shady and on the river so that was okay. Luckily, this was during the week so availability was good. Then we decided to stay an extra night but there was someone in the site they offered. By the time they straightened it out, we were on our way out - it was well after noon check out and we didn't want sit around waiting any longer, or tie up our site if the next people came. The office people were very apologetic, very pleasant and helpful. It was unfortunate but those things happen. Their website could definitely be improved! Very scant information there.
The sites at the back end (51 through 69) are more crowded, and 51 backs up to a maintenance shed. It was nice being on the river but I thought the pond side sites were equally nice. They aerate the front pond and we saw people fishing there. The other ponds had some algae, I didn't ask if it was blue green. - janci

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

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

This was one of the nicest campgrounds we've ever been to. Upon arrival, you're escorted to your site by a staff member on a golf cart that helps you get into your spot and set up. We had a pull thru so we didn't need much help but it was very nice gesture. They have curbside garbage pickup and also sprayed for mosquitoes at night. Staff was always close by and made their presence without being a bother either. We went with another group so it worked out well that our sights faced each other but, had we been by ourselves, I'm not sure I would have liked the pull thru setup. They have a nice pond that has a beach and swimming area. The dock for fishing had very unlevel, cracked concrete slab that almost didn't feel safe to be on but this might be my only complaint with the campground. The first bathhouse I used was nothing more than an outhouse, no lights and very hot and smelly, but I found a much nicer cleaner one not far from there that I used the rest of the weekend without complaint. There is a huge grass area perfect for flying kites, riding bikes or walking your pets, that we enjoyed. There was plenty for kids to do such as a hayride and bouncy pad that was on during daylight hours.They did not allow the use of outdoor rugs so on a wet weekend I could see this being a muddy mess. We would return here and plan to in the future. - Kyle S

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

It was ok for a couple nights so we could see the Speedway because there didn't seem to be any other place to stay. But, it's a one row strip of campsites along the fence at the back of the fairgrounds. Basically mowed weeds, dirt and rocks on a big asphalt parking lot. With trash cans. And hook-ups. I would hate to be there when it needs to be one camper per site instead of two. But, the utilities worked fine. When you drive in gate six the campground is straight ahead. Sites 1-8 don't have sewer but all of the rest do. Verizon worked well. Lots of OTA TV and no trees blocking our satellite. Some small grassy areas but overall not a very good place for dogs. We won't return, but it was ok for a couple nights because of the location. - thekites

So this one is a little sticky. I found this fairground on rv park reviews and then went on the state fairground website that instructed that there was year round camping spots available and to just go to gate 6 and pick a spot. They further instructed that security would find you and check you in. Well, we arrived and we didn't find the campground on the fairground but security and the managers were soooooo nice and accommodated us by allowing us to stay in the park a few blocks away that they used for people working the fair. They didn't have many people there yet for the fair so it was okay for one night. It was plenty big enough for the 45' coach and had lots of spaces to choose from. They were very nice about the whole thing, from start to finish. I highly recommend you call first to ask about any camping and disregard the webpage. Call the security office or the fairground to find out about options. - MEvan

We are on a four month trip from Tucson to Maine and down the East Coast and Indy was our first destination for an extended stay. This RV park is close to Indy, and provided us with a very comfortable stay. Staff was, each and every time of interaction, very friendly, helpful and professional. The park is semi-shaded with level gravel sites & full hookups. Each is very long and separated well from your neighbors on each side. The pool area, although we didn't use it, is really nice offering a great deal of fun features for kids to enjoy--it appeared clean and well maintained. We would definitely stay here again if in this area. - TPDBOB8687

This CG is east of the city. It has a pleasant feel to it especially in the deluxe sites. There are two entrances. The back entrance behind a dealership requires you go over a bridge once you're inside the CG. The bridge is fine but that may freak you a bit in a big rig. From either entrance, you enter between two buildings which is a little strange. When you're nearing the office, there is a sign that says to stay wide. Stay wide! Our site was deluxe site 33. We specifically asked for a site where we could get satellite reception and this was the one. We moved back and forth in the site and thought we locked on but as the nite went on, it kept dropping the signal. Just to get the inadequate signal we were way beyond the patio. Not ideal. Two sewer outlets. Electric and water fine. Huge dog park. One of the nicest pools we've seen. Wifi was pretty good and stable. Could really be made more attractive with the use of a little round up for weed control. There is substantial road noise. With all that we would stay again. Office staff very nice. Choices are minimal in the area. - Team Asphalt

This was our fifth stay at this expensive KOA. The first two were very nice but things change. Our reservation, made 3 weeks before our stay, said, "Back In, 50/30 Amps, Full Hookups. Great back-in sites with patio! These sites are on the main side of the camp near the office, pool, bathrooms, and game room." That description was printed on our confirmation. Upon arrival, we were assigned a site 6 tenths of a mile away from the pool and game room, and I have no idea where the nearest bathrooms were. The young lady checking me in didn't bat and eye at the difference, just shrugged. The expensive new pool is 3 feet deep at the deepest end and is clearly designed only for small children, not the 3 to 5 foot rectangle they had before. I thought this was one of the good KOAs but now I'm fairly certain we'll pass it by. It has some really nice sites out back, both shaded and open. But if you can not count on getting the kind of site you request, and considering the prices, it's difficult to praise the management or look forward to another stay here. - sandean

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

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

Arrived by their directions from town. Told to turn off at Bridge. There are entrances on both sides of bridge. I turned in first one, it was muddy narrow roads without room to around in a 40ft motor home. Had to unhook tow vehicle to get out. Even then the power lines were too low, ripped off CB antenna and wind turbine for awning off. Owner denied responsibility, said he was not driving and motorhome too big. Not big rig friendly. Office was close at 3PM, had to wait for worker to arrive. Asked for satellite accessible space, and was led to tree shaded spot with no satellite access, was told to move to another after setting up. Very rude disrespectful workers who do not listen or appear to care at all. Place is full of full timers and the roads are narrow with people working on their vehicles in the roads making the roads even more impassable. Spaces are narrow and some pull thrus are back to back making a "pull thru" not a pull thru if someone is on the other end. I do not recommend this place for motorhomes or any big rig units. Worker were not the least bit concerned and they did not help me get my motor home out or deal with power line scrapping the roof. The campers helped me get out, not the campground workers. They did not pay for any repair damage. Very poor management. Do not go there. - Bright- eyes 1

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

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
