This is an Encore park, which has stopped giving the Passport America discounts. They did give us a Good Sam discount because we come every year for a week or 2. The roads are gravel, the spots are gravel and mostly level. A couple spots have drainage issues, but they are easy to pick out. This year we noticed the bath houses are not being kept clean. They look clean, but have a bad smell which cleaning with clorox or pine sol would solve. They are also much used and in need of an update. The staff is friendly and helpful. During the week it is quiet, but on the weekends parents let the kids holler and run around until very late at night. The lakes can be used for fishing, not swimming. They have a pool and clubhouse for activities. We camped at Thousand Trails - Horseshoe Lakes in a Motorhome.

This is a very nice park that has large lots. The park staff is extremely helpful and friendly. Very family friendly, speed limit is 5 mph and enforced. Grounds are well kept and clean. There are a number of permanent sites which makes it harder for those who only want to stay a few days or weeks. There is a playground, putt putt golf, and a pool. Wi-Fi is only available close to office, adult club house and the pool. Our cell service with AT&T was nonexistent. We will return. We camped at Thousand Trails - Horseshoe Lakes in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate reflects TT membership. Good interior roads easy to navigate with our class 8 truck and 39' 5th wheel. Place full of annuals so best sites are taken and not many for transit campers. Would like to see a change in that all over the Thousand Trails system. Nice and quiet so makes for a relaxing stay. We camped at Thousand Trails - Horseshoe Lakes in a Fifth Wheel.

Most sites occupied by annual/seasonal members. Only 3 sites available for us, but fortunately 1 was a long & level grass/dirt back-in, accessible for our coach with dolly. (Site B-10) Staff and other campers were very friendly and helpful. Invited us to all activities including large end-of-season group dinner. Lots of activities and amenities although many understandably were closed so near to the end of the season. Be careful on directions if coming in from the south (Terre Haute area). Have to take some rural farm roads and you start to wonder if you're lost. Directions in & out from/to the north are much easier. Young man at office was very helpful with directions. Rate reflects Thousand Trails membership. We would return to this park. We camped at Thousand Trails - Horseshoe Lakes in a Motorhome.
Many covered bridges in the area. Ernie Pyle park & memorial in Dana, IN just north of the park.

Electric, water, cleanliness were all good. Earlier comments are still valid. However, our VZN phones worked okay here. Had difficulty with Direct TV Sat signal at our site.
Many sites were taken by annual users. Was told that this park was busier this year than it has been in the past.
One innovation was the use of "speed divots" in the roadways to help enforce the 5 mph speed limit. They appear to work. We camped at Thousand Trails - Horseshoe Lakes in a Motorhome.

This is our 2nd year here. Last year was only 5 days, this year was 10 days. They did a great event over the 4th of July, bounce house, water slide, etc. Very family oriented park. Gravel and dirt roads, mostly level sites. It rained a lot this week and the roads got muddy, but not real bad. The only bad thing Is the entrance road off the main road. Lots of bad pot holes. Lots of geese around the lakes, keep your dog from eating the goose poop. Clean laundry room, nice adult and family club houses. We will go back again.

Nice destination park, about 20 miles off the interstate. The park is secluded, wooded with lots of tall trees, and well maintained. It has some nice walking/biking trails, though they are not very long. The sites are close together, but fairly private due to the trees. Very weak cell signal until you get out of the trees. There is wifi in the lounge, but it is remote from the sites, so no wifi in the camping area itself. There are several tent camping areas that are completely separate from the RV areas, and very pretty. I did not use the bathrooms, but I heard several local residents talking about a long term plumbing problem that was unresolved because of lack of funds. The sites are dirt, and as I arrived after several days of rain, it was very muddy. We camped at Thousand Trails - Horseshoe Lakes in a Travel Trailer.
There is a Walmart in the little town of Clinton on the way in, but it does not have a full grocery store. Get groceries in Terra Haute.

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.

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.

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.

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.
