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. We camped at Ceraland Campground in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Ceraland Campground in a Travel Trailer.

US 31 in Columbus has shopping areas, and Fairoaks Mall. Rural King is one of the largest I've seen and has some camping supplies. Lots of architecture to see in Columbus, contact the Visitor's Center for info.

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. We camped at Ceraland Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed there the 3rd week in July, the in our overall opinion it was a great place to camp, with little problems. With the site we were assigned we had a MAJOR Flood problem when it rained, (which was often). We asked to be moved 2 sites up but told they were reserved, it was only when we threatened to leave after day 2, of a 9 day, we were then moved to one of the "reserved" sites. Our original site 198, and site 199 have MAJOR flooding problems when it rains. after talking to several people found that management is aware, of the problem and continues to book those sites. We asked for straw to help with the mud and we were given 2 bales which helped after our moving to another site. If they would purchase some gravel and build up those affected sites they would be great. It seemed that all but two employees that we delt with were over the age of 30 the rest were teenagers that really didn't care about a customers service. But other than the flooding problem, our overall camping was great. We will return next year and now have a better idea of what site we want. The Campground overall is great with lots of things to do Miniature golf, Driving range, a Pool, Gym area, Rifle range etc. We camped at Ceraland Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The roads in are paved. The sites are gravel and not level at all. They slope every which way. Pretty park for a smaller rig. Quiet. Nice lake. Stayed one night. Would not recommend for big rigs. We camped at Ceraland Campground in a Motorhome.

We have camped here while visiting family in Indianapolis and the park is beautiful with lots of things to do for adults and children. The park is open for everyone now-no membership required. The lake is very pretty . It's a great place for walking and bike riding. We will definitely return. We camped at Ceraland Campground in a Travel Trailer.

You have to be a member of this park or a member of a camping club to park here. No reservations are accepted - first come first served. We camped here over a long 4th of July weekend. The place was packed. The place for big rigs has no sewer hookup - so we had to go purchase a portable hauler. The overflow/big rig lot is quite tight - our neighbors campfire was nearly under our living room slide - hence smoke smell from the fire came right in. Fireworks are outlawed - yet every night there was a lot of fireworks & the security guard did nothing. We camped at Ceraland Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a semi-private park for members and guests who are members of Good Sam, FMCA or own a truck or RV with a Cummins diesel. We camped there as part of the Turbo Diesel Register rally for Cummins engines. This park is very clean and will maintained park with enough room between the camp sites to enjoy them. There is a lot of area to hike around and enjoy the setting of this campground. My only complaint was the shooting range was too close to the camping area. Sometimes in the morning the shooting range was being used by members practicing skeet shooting and the shotgun blast would wake us up. We camped at Ceraland Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Cereland was formerly a private park that is now open to the public. The campground is very well maintained and is adjacent to the Softball Park and Fitness Center. The park is south/southeast of Columbus in a wooded setting. The sites are wide and easily accessible. While they do not offer WI-FI, we found both 3G (Verizon) and 3G & 4G (AT&T) service was good in the park. The park is beautiful in the fall complimenting the south Indiana countryside. They do not accept reservations, everything is first come – first serve, but we had no problem getting a site in October. Limited laundry facility (2 Washers and 4 Dryers) but was adequate for a quick uniform wash/dry. We couldn’t find a place in the park to purchase wood, but was referred to Lowe's about 9 minutes away which we picked up on a trip into Columbus. We highly recommend this park. One note, the water & electric box is at the back of the site, so an extension may be necessary. We camped at Ceraland Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice park about 5 miles from town. No cable or Wi-Fi and very limited cell service. This is too bad as this is a great park to stay in. Full hookups available on gravel lots with plenty of shade or open for satellite. People are very friendly in the office and go out of their way to accommodate.

Large spacious sites. Most are fairly level, some can be a challenge. Many sites now have full hook-ups, incl sewer. More amenities than can be listed. Policies allow non-members to stay and use facilities. Not listed in campground directories, so you need the phone number. A great spot for a night or a week.

Very nice recreation area just southeast of Columbus. Lots of activities in the summer. Campground needs updating. Bathrooms and showers are old. Too many low hanging trees. Saw lots of big rig motor homes scratching their sides and tops pulling into sites and turning corners. The new overflow area is treeless; however, the entrance is full of low trees. Would rate this park a 9 if the trees were trimmed. We will not stay here again. We camped at Ceraland Campground in a Motorhome.

Very nice park. Needs some improvement in the campground area, such as trimming trees and leveling of some of the campsites. Pets are only allowed in the main campground area and not around the lake and the rest of the recreation area. Cummings has opened the campground to FMCA and Good Sam and is hoping for more usage. Very busy during weekends and impossible to get in during holidays due to company events. There is a gun range in the campground which can be frightening for pets.

Park is beautiful and very family friendly. Park was clean, did not get to check restroom facilities so do not know what their condition was. Check in was easy but person did not have a map for directions to site which made it a little confusing. Utilities were not located conveniently. If you have a roof mount Sat dish there is no reception due to a lot of trees. I would camp here again if need be. We camped at Ceraland Campground in a Motorhome.

We were there with a group and had group rates. Not many sites where a satellite will work due to all the trees. Nice campground and helpful friendly workers. May be a membership only campground, we are not sure however we would stay there again is we could. We camped at Ceraland Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
