6 RV Parks near Fair Oaks, Indiana
Jul 2018 - $47.00
The pros- This is a nice park for family tent camping weekends or overnight stays with quick access from Interstate 65. Lake with toys and a little beach and playground for kids. Lots of trees, very shady and quiet during the week. The cons- Sites are sand, hard to level. Park website states they have WiFi. It's true, but only in the camp office/store. No WiFi provided to the park. Park office/store hours were unpredictable. Went at 10:00am and 5:30pm on weekdays to find it closed. Laundry room was very dirty and didn't appear to have been swept or mopped in ages. Trees along roads need to be trimmed for safe big rig access. - BShirlz

We spent the last month (Sep 2015) traveling with our 5th wheel over 11 states. One of the most enjoyable campground we encountered was the Oak Lake Family Campground. Oak Lake is located in the Northwest corner of Indiana. It is a large plot of land, lots of trees, quiet as its removed from a major highway (I-65) by several miles and very children friendly
GENERAL: The owners are exceptional hosts. We arrived near the end of Sept at the start of a weekend. The hosts had the arrival area and the camp store decorated in a Halloween theme. Kids were dressed in their Halloween finery and in evening hours were trick-or-treating in the campground. The hosts had more Halloween festivities in the later evening hours and everyone was having a fantastic time
The campground is inspected daily by the staff. They pickup litter that's been carelessly discarded and walk the entire grounds doing it. The staff also has a yard-vacuum pulled by a pickup truck they use to pickup rocks, sticks, leaves and other debris
There is a peaceful lake, park style climbing structures, swings and other child use items
SITES: The sites are grass and gravel but solid and level. They have sites for rigs like ours, tent sites, pop-ups, travel trailers and cabin rentals. When we backed our RV into the assigned site, we didn't have to fiddle around with leveling blocks under this or that wheel, or that sort of thing, very nice
AMENITIES: TV signals are received "off-the-air" with an antenna and stations populated from Chicago and South Bend/Mishawaka; they were very clear and sharp. Hook-ups (water, sewer, 30/50 amp electric) readily available. A public bathhouse that is well maintained and cleaned daily. There is a WIFI hotspot that appears to cover the grounds. Didn't have any problems using it. - JD Delancy

Well shaded pull-thru site, owner was very nice and guided us to our site. Nice earthen pond / swim area with large air toys (we did not partake in our one night stay). Very shaded area, but probably was over-due for mowing. The sites (and area) are sand or very fine chat-gravel - I slipped tires in the loose soil while positioning my fiver. Location is fairly convenient off the interstate - far enough to not be noisy. We did not try the wifi. - Wally G

Our site was strewn with garbage to the point that it resembled an inner city vacant lot. One of the wooden beams from the fence around the site was scorched and sitting in the grass nearby. The closest bathroom, in the gameroom, was a mess, the toilet clogged and filthy, despite the presence of a young employee sitting a few feet away watching a DVD. The seasonal residents who appear to make up the overwhelming majority of the customers constantly ride by in golf carts. While I was sitting there pondering whether to spend a half-hour cleaning up the trash on the site, a cart loaded with about six unsupervised youths nearly crashed down the path right next to the site. At that point I had seen enough. One of the greatest joys of my just-finished vacation was putting this dump in my rear-view mirror. I only wish there had been a review on this site to steer me away beforehand. Consider yourself warned: This is not a good campground. - Family of four

This was a nice, out of the way park for an overnight stay. The lady working the office was very nice and helpful. - RJ56

We very much enjoy staying at Acorn Oaks, nice location just far away from civilization to be a true get away.
Well-kept park with nice electric and water service.
Very nice bath house and store.
We will be visiting very often. - RonGarrison

Park is located next to I-65 so expect some highway noise. After that it is all down hill. Roads are very narrow with potholes and it had just rained, so they were full of water. Turn around for pull throughs extremely narrow and short. Pull through site was very narrow with mud puddles on both side so both motorhome and car became muddy. Tree close to slide outs, did get them out though. Afraid to put jacks down as ground quite soft. Would not recommend this park at all. They seem to be more interested in the water activities. - Red Crewzer

I am not sure what Good Sam's definition of "good roads" is, but this park certainly wouldn't get that definition from us. And the WiFi wasn't much better. Finally, the traffic noise from the interstate was so loud, we had to run our fan AND wear ear plugs, even with all the windows closed and a site clear across the lake from the highway.
All-in-all, a very poor park for the price. We certainly wouldn't stay here again! - fanrgs

Nice camp ground. Easy to get in and out. The folks there were great. The little lake looked clean, nothing floating in it. All the hook ups worked and were easy to connect. - Chris James

The site was a level but because of the tree I had to position the RV just right in order to get the satellite to work. The site is in a quite area with plenty of bunnies. The folks who live in the homes on the grounds were very friendly. The folks that maintained the grounds were very careful around water, sewer and electric connections. Had two surprises, One is the placement of the water connection which was on the opposite side of the other connections. I had to buy an additional 25 foot hose to connect. So watch out for electric and water connections. My electric used up all the line I had but it made it. The other surprise is the railroad near by which would blow its whistle several times in the morning hours. Yes around 2:30am. - Peter G

Stayed 4 nights Wasnt able to get sewer as they were full so used the bathrooms. They do not have a dump station. The inside of the bathrooms were clean but the enterance wasnt so nice. No Wifi that I was aware of. The camp grounds were surround by a small wooded area. It was a short walk down to the lake where there is a swimming area. It was Approx. 40 miles to downtown Chicago where we parked for the day for $37 for 12 hrs under Millieum Park. It takes approx 1.5hrs to drive in. The campground is close to a suppermarket. On the way in be carefull crossing the railway tracks as some are killers. - Aussie Chums

This campground is located about an hour southeast of Chicago in northwestern Indiana. It's history reaches back over 100 years when Chicago's Moody Church took over management of a railroad recreation destination on a large lake. The ministry at this retreat center continues to this day. The Center's nice RV park is open to the public. It offers FHU back in sites, some with 50 amp electric service. The sites aren't especially deep, but there is adequate parking for extra vehicles. The bathhouse is nicely done and clean. Water spigots are on shared hookups between every other site, equally unhandy to those on both sides so extra water hose will likely be needed. WiFi was pretty good although we did get frequent drops requiring us to reconnect. The sites on the north side of the road in and out are most likely to be satellite friendly. There is no direct lake access but it is just a short walk to the public portion of the retreat center where there are benches along the lake, affording nice views. My Verizon signal was good. - nazpaz

Very nice host - working from his home he was happy to show us to our site when we pulled in to camp at about 8 PM. This is an older camp, with a newer owner who is working to spruce up the campground with his wife and son. This is not resort camping. We enjoyed the mature trees and the campground was very quiet, as most of the campers are permanent with residents not staying in their trailers. I think only one other RV was stopping in for the night. The area has been hard-hit by the economy, so visitors are appreciated. - AluminumCloud

This is a wonderful campground that is now under new management. The atmosphere is very friendly and fun for all. I have been going here for 10 years and it has improved greatly! There are activities for adults and kids at least once a month if not more. Everyone there is very friendly like family. The restrooms are clean and the office is nice for the kids if it starts to rain. They have a TV in the office and several games for the kids to play. I would recommend this site to anyone and have recommended to friends and family and once you come you will continue to come year after year! - Patricia V

We tent camped here over the Fourth of July week, and will return this year. Every year, we have camped at different campsites around Indiana, and this is the first that I would return to during a holiday. There was a wonderful playground for the smaller kids. Thrasher's Woods held a dance for the teenagers. They also have a wonderful stocked pond for the kids of all ages. Do not worry if you forgot to bring live bait, for Thrasher's woods sells night crawlers! The staff was very helpful, and very respectful. There was a little bit of noise at night, but the staff worked well to limit it to an acceptable murmur. The bathrooms could have used a little more upkeep, and the pool got overcrowded during the hottest parts of the day. Please keep in mind that this was over a long holiday week. I am very much looking forward to camping there this Fourth of July, and during non-holiday weeks this summer. - nicknick_78
