The RV Park is almost as shown on their website. Internet was very slow, hot spot only. Bathrooms and showers clean. Laundry old but clean and working. Only issue, arrived late with reservation but did not get the gate access code. Our GSM phone had no signal at the office. Got the phone to work on and off at the gate and was able to call a staff for the gate code. Not well organised. So happy that the grandson of a yearly member came to assist us and helped us find a available space to park for 2 nights. Would maybe stay here again. We camped at Thousand Trails - Horseshoe Lakes in a Fifth Wheel.

Out of the way location, winding roads, large gravel spaces, fairly level, surrounded by grass, No Wi-Fi, no dog park, lots of walking paths, a Thousand Trails park so plenty of long-term residents. Mostly back-ins so if you're towing you need to unhook before driving around to find a spot, very few with 50 amps. Low tree branches at the entrance to the park tore the trim off the side of our motorhome. Probably won't return to this one. We camped at Thousand Trails - Horseshoe Lakes in a Motorhome.

Main roads paved, site roads gravel with long and wide level back in gravel sites with room to park car or toad. Each site has water, electric, table and fire ring. The A loop has no sewer but the B loop has sewer. Honey wagon service available. No wi-fi signal at sites, antenna TV available OK and no cable. Only a few 50 amp sites in park. All traveler sites have dense trees and no satellite signal. The overflow parking area has water and electric and open for satellite signal. Park well maintained. Kids playground and several fishing lakes. 5 miles to small town. $5 fee for day visitor, $10 fee for overnight visitor. Would stay there again. TT Encore park. Rate for Passport America, also accepts RPI/Enjoy America. We camped at Thousand Trails - Horseshoe Lakes in a Fifth Wheel.

This Thousand Trails is a very nice park. There are few spots available to people who are not permanent residents, however. The staff is very nice and helpful and the grounds were well kept. There was Internet available in the adult lounge only and it was so slow it wasn't worth my time. Instead, I drove in town to McDonald's and used theirs. The location of this park is the reason for the lower rating. The park itself is nice to relax and fish. If you want to sightsee, or go into town each day, well you wont be close to anything. We would stay there again. We camped at Thousand Trails - Horseshoe Lakes in a Fifth Wheel.

Lots of shade, lakes for fishing, clean laundry, and level spots. Gee, just about everything you want in an RV park. We have been here twice, that is how much we like it. There is an adult clubhouse for card games too. We very much recommend this park. We camped at Thousand Trails - Horseshoe Lakes in a Motorhome.

Rate based on TT membership. Lovely campground but many of the sites are sold to annuals. We secured one of the 2 pull thru sites. Very well kept up sites. For as many annuals that live there it doesn't have a "trailer park" look or feel. We would be back again in hopes that there would be availability.

The rate shown is the Thousand Trails membership rate. We enjoyed this park. It is very pretty with the number of lakes, and the arrangement of the sites in and among the trees. Our only complaints were that the vast majority of sites are annual, limiting what is available to transient travelers like ourselves, and that the preserve seems understaffed. We were there over Memorial Day weekend, and many things did not seem ready for the season yet. There did not seem to be a lot of activities, even over the holiday weekend. It was fine for us as we don't have children, but kids might find little to do. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Thousand Trails - Horseshoe Lakes in a Motorhome.

The rate cited is the Thousand Trails member rate. First, the campground is in good hands. The manger takes great care and pride in the facility. That said, there is a high number of seasonal/annual camp sites, 79 or 80. The sites available to short term campers are good sites with full hookups but short on 50 amp sites. The "locals" do have a little bit of an attitude toward "visitors" on their turf. We spent a very relaxing time here, joined in a cheese & cracker gathering. Friday night where we were pretty much ignored by everyone until we broke into a couple of the groups. This is a beautiful campground with all the lakes. Trails are okay and you can wander all through the preserve, away from the crowds, and find wild life to watch and photograph. Interior roads are gravel, as are the mostly level sites. We enjoyed our stay here and will return. We camped at Thousand Trails - Horseshoe Lakes in a Fifth Wheel.

This has now become one of our favorite Thousand Trails parks, great manager that cares about their park. Well kept grounds, mini golf need help but was told it is a priority on their list. Plenty of full hook up sites to choose from, very level and found lots of shade. Located out in the country but a short drive to Terre Haute for almost everything you would need or want. We will definitely return. We camped at Thousand Trails - Horseshoe Lakes in a Fifth Wheel.

This Thousand Trails preserve has several pretty ponds and lakes and we had a campsite with a great lake view out the back window. There are many seasonal residents who take great pride in the place and have a sense of ownership of the place. There's a bit of discomfort with "outsiders" coming into "their" park. However, a few smiles and handshakes and all is good. The roads are mainly gravel and the facilities are rather dated. However there is a nice little pool that looks inviting. This is a nice place to kick back and relax as there's not a lot happening except on the weekends. We camped at Thousand Trails - Horseshoe Lakes in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a membership park and the $15 rate reflects our RPI rate plus there is a $3 resort fee and tax. This park is a great place. It is a 290 acre resort in the woods and nestled among 9 lakes. The sites are gravel with full hookups and a picnic table. At the resort lodge they have a laundry room, pool, tennis courts, miniature golf and a playground. Some of the lakes have boat ramps. It is worth the drive of 24 miles north off of I70 to stay here. We stayed only one nite, but wished we could have stayed several more days.

The roads and grounds are reasonably well cared for and the trees and lakes are certainly beautiful. The utilities are quite alright but there are only about 22 - 50 amp sites. It seems most of the nicer sites are taken up by annual site holders, as seems common in TTN parks now, which leaves few sites for traveling members to get satellite reception without an on-ground unit. We were given six sites from available which to choose when we checked in, only one of which was satellite suitable. While I understand the reason for annual site holders, I don't like the high percentage of them in our campgrounds, which is unfair to those who travel from park to park. Also, I noticed that many of the annual site holders in this park have turned their sites into their permanent residence with their swing sets, stacks of firewood, golf carts, and the like. I have the distinct impression of this park as resembling a trailer court. Most occupied sites are empty during the week and inhabited on the weekends, giving us an easy way to see who is traveling and who is not.

Normally this park is more of an 8, but improvements have not been made this year. We've been to this park about 4 times already this year and each time the sewer is not available for use. There is a sign advertising DRY camping until further notice. The pool is filled, but we were told it would not be available until the sewer was fixed. We've been told for 4 weeks straight that it should only be another week for everything to be fixed. Be aware that they advertise full hook-up, but as of right now there is only electricity. The rate is WAY too high right now for those who are not members. We camped at Thousand Trails - Horseshoe Lakes in a Fifth Wheel.

The check-in building is located down a road to the right when you enter the park. It's kind of awkward for big rigs because it's a fairly small parking area and you have to make two sharp right turns to get out of the lot and back to the road. The ranger station is manned for only a short period of time each day, if that. There are only a few 50 amp sites, and those we saw were mostly occupied by 30 amp rigs. The interior roads are gravel, but in good condition. The grounds were mowed and well kept. There are lots of lakeside sites with beautiful trees. We were able to pick up satellite from our site. The adult center was pleasant, the WiFi worked ok, and there were good walking trails. There are over 30 covered bridges in the area, and the map you get in the office has the coordinates of each. We had fun serching out the locations. We plan to return the next time we're in the area. We camped at Thousand Trails - Horseshoe Lakes in a Motorhome.

This is one of our favorite parks and it's close to home for a short get away. Many of the campers are members and if you go often, you will get to know them. Everyone is especially friendly and helpful. There are activities planned for most nights throughout the week. There are sites for all preferences. If you like shade, sun or a lake view, they have it. There are a few improvements that we'd like to see. The swimming pool is kind of small, but big enough to cool off and play a little. The snack shack is only open on the weekends. All sites are gravel, along with the roads going through the park. One of the great things about the park is that it's mostly members and they do a great job taking care of their park. I'd also like to see the office give campers a break on weekly stays. We've been to this park many times and we've never been disappointed. We camped at Thousand Trails - Horseshoe Lakes in a Fifth Wheel.
