WiFi nonexistent. For the high price for no sewer hookup makes this a place needing stronger Mgt.
DirecTV not available unless you move to the field-like campground.
Nice kids park, no effort to remedy WiFi issue. Asked them to follow up and not confident this will happen. 50 amp good, cell phone reception good, level gravel sites. Location good with Columbus within 10 minutes. - budwang

Very nice and clean park. Has a number of activities, such as go-cart track, skeet range, rifle range, miniature golf, batting cages, driving range etc. Would definitely do a return visit. - paulbe

Spent Mother's Day weekend here, as the park is close to "Mom", so she and Dad could come visit ;-) . Having grown up in this area, we remember Ceraland as a sort of 'crown jewel' of recreation areas, as it was formerly funded by, and for use by, Cummins employees and their families. It is now open to the public, and they sell annual memberships to use the pool, playgrounds, go-kart track, shelter houses, fitness center, etc.
The campground is about at the level of state park standards in Indiana these days; in the fact that some sites need some gravel (and a couple could use some fill dirt, and bath houses are older but kept pretty clean. All in all, it's a pretty fair value for a full hookup site. There are a few seasonals, but they're pretty nice and well-kept. Most of the sites will require a bit of leveling, but not too bad.
There is a lake, and there are lake-front sites available, but not if you have dogs. The "premium" lake-front sites are in a designated 'no pets' area. Also, the signs and literature state there's no alcohol allowed in the park, which probably cuts down on the loud, intoxicated parties, and that's OK. We just kept ours inside the RV ;-). This weekend was pretty quiet, and the park was less than half full.
There is a minimal camp store on the property, and they sell essentials, including firewood, but the city of Columbus is 10 minutes away for more options. - fastalker64

We had to ruff it Satelite wouldn't wok in trees, I'm excited to see what life without television is like! Our site didn't have sewer, don't normally hook up unless I intend to dump. Unlike previous review long timers don't bother me if their sites are clean and rv's well kept. Level, clean, quiet, long pullthru so I didn't have to unhook. - User2314

Good overnight stop near Indianapolis. Indy doesn't offer many campgrounds, so we always stay a little out of town when traveling the I-65 corridor. Woods N Waters is a clean campground, with level and well graveled sites, and has good signage to lead you here. The property has mature trees, a pool, and small pond. Many sites are pull-through and some have full hook-ups. There are a lot of seasonal campers parked here, which always makes me feel like I'm intruding on a private club - that contributes to a slightly lower rating, but it's just my own quirk. This is a great campground, secluded and secure, and serves well for an overnight stop. - Flying Mantis

Over all we consider Woods-N-Waters a middle of the road campground. Roads are gravel and several tight turns were needed to get to our site. Our pull-thru site was gravel and fairly level. No sewers are available for pull-thrus. We were not able to connect to the WiFi. We noticed a low rumble and felt a vibration on many surfaces both inside and outside our coach which we assume was coming from the nearby factory. The county road leading to the campground is narrow and had a sign that says "No Semis". On the way out we passing another RV going in the opposite direction and it was a very tight fit to stay on the road and not hit mirrors. - Oliver-Max

Old, old, old campground that has CLOSED since our visit last year. This was an excellent location for shopping at the outlets across US31. - Teacher's Pet

This campground is closing for good at the end of October, 2013. - TX Camper

Older campground with narrow gravel sites, but 36' Class A with 4 slides fit easily. 50 amp power, water and sewer for $20 per night a great deal. Just off I-65 near Premium Outlet stores and several restaurants. Stayed overnight and would stay again. Cash or personal check only. - Travellin' Tina

Older park in need up some major upgrading, our site looked like an afterthought as it was between the tool shop and a cabin. The utilities were good and easy to connect to. - Teacher's Pet

This park is actually in Gnawbone, a few miles from Nashville. The sites are somewhat close together and the road might be a little close for some. Otherwise, the sites were level, wifi excellent and the owners very friendly and helpful. - hudsonguy

Agree with previous comments. Park is still clean and well maintained with very helpful owners. Park was pretty full over Labor Day weekend, but emptied out the day after. Price is a bargain.
Only negative is that some of sewer connections were elevated off the ground thus making dumping a little tricky, i.e. dumping uphill. - GerMarV

Stayed here while visiting relatives in the area. FHU site with cable TV and WiFi. Site was less than level. CG owner worked with me to get the TT as level as possible, even provided concrete blocks to back up my wheel chocks. Bring your long water hose and your electrical extension cords. Some sites are back to back. Heavy rain washed out part of entry road which he repaired immediately. - moderate camper

The Wifi didn't exist. We had the password but with various mobile devices could never find the service. Also could never get the cable to work even after we did all the things the owners said to do. Select a site on the west side of the park if you prefer shade. The pool closes early. We went down after dinner to cool off and the poolhouse and office was locked. We have stayed at this park many times in the past, this is the first time with the new owners. Never had these problems before. - Drapery Queen

This park was well maintained. Staff were very friendly, even when I interrupted them while they were eating dinner! You could tell staff cared about cleanliness in the restrooms and laundry room. Great place to camp.
A clean pool was available. Sites were all fairly flat and the location close to Nashville made this a great place to camp while exploring the area. The entrance to the park is a slight hill, but shouldn't be a problem. - Silvana CLark

Very nice State Park. Sites are spread out over several loops so the campground is much larger than it first appears. The site quality can vary a lot even in the same loop, so choose carefully when making on-line reservations. For instance, our site was level asphalt with a gravel patio area, but some nearby sites were thin, uneven gravel. The sites are electric only with several scattered water spigots available for filling tanks. This is a huge State Park with many hiking, biking, and horse trails throughout. The camp store was well supplied and had longer weekend hours. There are only two dump stations, so wait times on Sunday afternoons can be long. - Daryn

We camped early in the season and it was wonderful. Big camping spots, clean facilities and very quiet. - Tlead4

Though this campground does not have sewer or water hookups and is electric only, the location of the campsites more than makes up for lack of utilities. We had a lovely campsite under the trees with a short walk to the bathhouse which was clean though simple. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our time in the park, did some hiking and had a campfire. It is conveniently located to the arts town of Nashville where we enjoyed seeing the shops and eating a few meals. This is a beautiful state park that Indiana residents should be proud of. It reminded us of the Smoky Mountains. We stayed in the section called Taylor Ridge. It was beautiful and secluded. Lots were gravel, level and large with picnic table and fire ring. - Cathy S

We stayed here for a music festival and the campground was very crowded. We came for the music, so of course it is convenient to stay in the campground during the festival. The restrooms near the back of the campground were open on Fri and Sat but smelled horrible. The restrooms near the stage were open and in much better shape. The showers are open from 7-10 am and pm, so if not there by 10 am would have to wait unit after the music starts to get a shower. We loved the music and friends we gather with each year, so will be going again next year. I'm not sure I would stay here otherwise. - Donna Jo

Spooky park. Thought we were on a empty drive in theater lot. Would not stay here again. In fact, we left after the first night. Stayed in the fall and there was no one around. All but one restroom closed. Would not recommend during off season for sure. - Julie B

Old park. At this time of year, no problem getting a site. Roads fair, narrow, hilly and dirt. Park is large. Sites old gravel, unlevel but spacious. Everything looks old and worn. Staff gives appearance of unconcerned. Good electric and water pressure. Mediocre. Alright for an overnight, close to Nashville Indiana. - PappaDee

I reviewed this park a few years ago but it is worth a re-review. They built a new shower house which is a vast improvement. The trees have grown up so there is some shade available. The swimming beach has been removed so no swimming is available. Still it is a county park carved out of an old army base. It is a decent place to camp if you are going to one of the many events at the park. Several seasonal campers plus some people temporarily living in tents. - bgb1066

This is a pretty typical county park campground. Water and electric sites plus a tent area. The shower house is grungy. The sites are gravel pads with a grassy area between them. The park has a lot of events and things to do so it is not a bad place to spend a weekend. The campground does have power problems when crowded and the weather is hot. - bgb1066

This is a local park with a majority of Water/Electric sites but have 10 "Full" Hook-up sites. Very Clean park, with 3 playgrounds for kids. The only downside is that the Restrooms are NOT heated or air conditioned. There is a "Camp Host" on site. Water is turned off in Nov. Reservations can be made in advance. They also give discounts to Coast to Coast members. - md_procouple

Overall very good stay. Staff was very helpful but seemed overwhelmed at times due to it being very busy. Strange layout for a GG. You need to be pretty good at maneuvering your rig for some spots. All roads were gravel and smooth. No paved spaces. A good portion of the roads are through wooded sections where some small branches will contact your rig. Be sure you have at least 30 feet of power cord and water hose available. Many sites have a single pole with 4 water and 4 elect connections in the center with four campers parked in a square around the utility pod. Not many 50 amp spaces avail. I think about half the spots were seasonal rigs that never move. It seems that 95% of the sites were families with kids but from what we observed people were friendly and just there to enjoy the outdoors, hang out with friends and swim in the quarry. Several families had dogs but all were leashed and everyone seemed to pick up after themselves. No trash cans. You must take bagged trash to dumpsters. This seems like a pain but it there weren't a bunch of bees and no overflowing trashcans with keeps the place looking nice. Overall a very good weekend. Reservations are a must. Oh, not CG fault but be aware that AT&T cellphone coverage is extremely week. - Goodcruisin

Get ready to get nickel and dimed to death. Everything is an additional charge. You have one extra adult, that's an extra $14. You want to swim in the campground's rock quarry, that will cost you $7 per person. You want to bring your golf cart into the campground, that will cost you $10. See what I mean, it adds up very quick, and your $30 a night site turns into a $50+ a night site, and this campground isn't worth $50 a night. Staff isn't overly friendly, and it's hard to tell who works there, because no one wears anything to identify that they are staff. The water has a smell and is tinted a light brown, our hose is stained from the weekend stay there. They don't have the sites marked with gravel or concrete, just grass, and everyone just sets up wherever they want. Most sites don't have sewer.
Rock quarry is nice and clean, and the kids enjoyed the inflatables. The crowd that frequents the campground is a little rough.
Bring your wallet cause your going to need it. Everything is extra. - jmcmanama

Use Exit 25 and you'll be there in a jiff! St. Paul is a cute town that's maybe 1 mile from the campground. We really liked the site that we had right on the Flat Rock River. How convenient fishing right out your front door :)
The park is huge with nice graveled roads to ride your bike on, a very large field in the center of the campground where there were campers and we played frisbee in the sun and watched stars at night. My only hang up was that there was a cost for swimming. The convenience store on site is nice, but it's better to make sure you have all your supplies, or stop at Wal Mart on your way in. They have WiFi, but it wasn't very good. I did have good Verizon reception though. - Beachgrammy53
