Concrete pads and patios, river front sites available, good OTA TV, good firewood for$5, Cicero is only 3mi for groceries and hardware, Koteewi park across the river has new features including zip line, some sites are larger than others so ask when you book. Our 32' TT was a bit snug on site 29. We visit this park at least once per year, when it's available, because it is full most weekends. It's busy, but quiet and with lots of FHU sites. We camped at White River Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This campground is situated next to the White River in Cicero, Indiana, just a few miles off Highway 31. The road leading to the campground from 31 is quite narrow. The entrance sign is quite low so you need to be aware. Campground is nicely kept. The day we arrived campground was having an RV show, so road to site was blocked. Luckily we were able to get to our site on opposite road, but have to move orange cones in order to back up to our site, which was along the river. We arrived shortly after check in time and when we asked if our site was available, the office staff had no idea and stated that we would find out when we got there. Luckily it was empty.

Please note that a large FAN or screen room is a necessity at this campground, due to the large number of hovering flies in the area. At the time we were here, they were building a large pedestrian bridge that intersected with the park next door. This caused a lot of noise and mud in the road. It was a good deal at $150.00 per week. We camped at White River Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This campground is just north of Noblesville, Indiana, which is a quaint town for shopping and antique hunting. There is a great restaurant in the town of Cicero called 10 West, if you are looking for an upscale night out. There is also a great ice cream place in town also.

This is a county-owned campground north of Indianapolis. If you can find an open time in the summer you'll be very fortunate. We were on their waiting list for over 7 months to get the time slot we needed. All RV spaces are concrete with a nice picnic table and fire ring. Water is at the front of the sites just off the road. The sewer and electric are at the rear. It's almost impossible to get a full-hookup site during the summer months. The campground is heavily used for weekend camping by the locals. If you enjoy close neighbors and socializing ask for a site toward the back of the property. If you want peace and quiet ask for a site at the front near the office. The office closes and the gate is blocked early. But, once you've arrived you'll be given a code for gate entry. We camped at White River Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This campground is a county park with the facilities heavily used by local residents. I would strongly advise calling ahead for a spot. 50 amp sites are quickly taken and many 30 amp sites are too short for big rigs. We lucked out since the campground host had not brought his RV out for the summer yet, and we were allowed to use his site. This is a very nice and well maintained park with all sites being paved and grounds well taken care of. We camped at White River Campground in a Motorhome.

One of the closest RV parks to the north side of Indianapolis, some basic shopping is available about 3-4 miles away in Cicero, Indiana. Any specialized needs or a Wal-Mart would entail driving around 10 miles south to Noblesville.

This is a great county park that was used heavily on the weekend. All sites have level concrete pads. Some are short so make sure that you let them know the length of your rig when you register. About half the sites are full hookup and the remainder are water and electric. Good Verizon service and over the air TV. Satellite is spotty since there are mature trees. There is a nice playground, shelter, game room (limited hours), volleyball, horse shoe pits and fishing. Large grass areas will accommodate tent campers and many RV spaces have room for a tent. The entire facility is very well maintained especially since it is heavily used. They are in the process of constructing a pedestrian bridge across the river to the walking and biking paths. Staff is extremely friendly and accommodating. We made a reservation early in the week so we could attend a funeral on Saturday. Despite being almost full, they found a way to provide us a full hookup site. We will return. We camped at White River Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a small county run campground located on the White River. There are a combination of larger sites with full hookups (50 amp), smaller sites with 30 amp/water and a few tent sites. A few sites have a view of the river although the one we were in did not. The larger site we were in had a very level concrete base with a picnic table located underneath some trees. We were able to locate our motorhome to get DirectTV satellite service as well as receiving Indianapolis stations on our bat wing. The only down side to the site is that the sewer connection is located at the very back and we had to use 30 feet of hose to make the connection. There were very few RV's in the campground during the week days we were there and it was very quiet. The park's WiFi worked well enough for us. There is another county park (no camping) with walking/biking trails along with a nature center located on the other side of the river about 1/2 mile from this campground. We enjoyed our time in this campground and would stay here again if we are in the area. We camped at White River Campground in a Motorhome.

County owned, gated in evening, sites shaded, paved sites, table. Sites are really spacious. Interior roads are extremely narrow but are sort of one way so not a real problem. Narrow roads make it a bit difficult to back into space and not drive on the grass and the trees could use a trimming. Real quiet during the week but understand busy on week-ends with locals. Downside - watch out for the rainy season since park will flood with almost two feet of water. Would clearly stay here again. We camped at White River Campground in a Motorhome.

This is an outstanding county park campground. The facilities are clean, there is a great playground, small camp store, a river, a pond, plenty of play space and great level, paved sites. The bathhouse is concrete block, but nicely updated. Far enough away from the city to see stars, close to a small town (Cicero) for groceries. The sites are not huge, but they are either on the river, or back up to a large grassy area and narrow pond. A nice mix of RV types and tent campers. Everyone was well behaved. We live 25 minutes from this park but it was our first time here. We will be back. We camped at White River Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Cicero has groceries and a small hardware store. Noblesville has a delightful square with shops and great dining options. Morse reservoir beach is okay. I saw you can rent pontoons at Morse Marina for $50/hour and canoeing is nearby as well. Conner Prairie is worth a day visit - 1830's recreation of Indiana living. Their summer concert series is outstanding.

A nice well-maintained campground. It had been closed the previous week due to high water from the river. They were spraying daily for mosquitos. Lots of grassy areas for pets and kids to play. We camped at White River Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is a very clean park. All sites paved and leveled. Disappointed in the sites along the river, the website makes it appears that you can walk right up to the river and start fishing. This isn't true. The banks are grown up which makes it difficult to fish from. The pond is full of trash and algae so in my opinion it's un-fishable. Camp store charges a dollar fee on every transaction you use your credit card on which I totally disagree with. Overall it's a clean and nice campground and would stay again. We camped at White River Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is a beautiful campground with paved roads to the camp sites. Each site has a level, concrete pads. Our site (#27) was full hookup on the river. The park is well maintained with the front bath house being modern and clean. The only negative was the restroom at the back of the campground. It is older, not very clean, and had shower curtains for toilet stall doors. There is fishing, a nice playground, recreation room, covered pavilion, and horseshoes. The laundry was clean with a cost of $1.00 to wash and .75 to dry. The staff and hosts were friendly beyond belief. We camped here for 10 nights and noted that the weekends were much more active than were the week days. We definitely plan to camp here again. We camped at White River Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a very nice campground that is well maintained. Most sites are paved including the campsite living area. Many sites have nice shade trees. The main bathroom was clean and in good condition. It is at one end of the campground so it could be a pretty good hike. During our stay it was relatively quiet during the week; however, it became very busy on the weekend. Unfortunately the group camped in the several sites next to us played games and partied for hours after quiet time began (until 2-3 am). The campground personnel does nothing to quiet those being noisy. This is the reason I did not give it a 10 rating. There is no 24 hour park personnel, only campground hosts. Know that while the website does not mention it, you can call for reservations and that would be recommended. We camped at White River Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Rate reflects weekly rate. We enjoyed this campground. The showers and stalls are a little "skinny" but clean. Only 1 bath house for the entire park and could be a hike from some of the spots if you walk. We were right on the river which was nice but I would imagine might have some mosquito issues. We had some but they were controlled by spray. Very family friendly. We camped at White River Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is a clean campground with full hookups. We stayed on site 9 which was on the river. Nice spot to fish, close to playground and quiet. This is a great weekend place to relax, but not much to do. Strawtown Koteewi park, however, is across the street which has an learning center and trails. Also, the staff informed us they were changing their dog policies. You'll need to register your dog with vet's information and rabies tag number. As a local, we'd consider visiting again if we wanted a quick getaway.
