Very close to I-465, but far enough to not hear the noise. Three truckstops at the same exit which made it nice as well. Campground personnel were friendly and helpful at check in. Will stay again. We camped at Lake Haven Retreat in a Motorhome.

Seemed fairly clean and well kept. The campground is located in an industrial area of Indianapolis and caters to transient workers more than the casual RV crowd. It's jam-packed but easy to get in and out of the campground. We camped at Lake Haven Retreat in a Travel Trailer.

Park is easily accessible from I-465. Long and wide sites on gravel with grass area between sites. The park has a large pond and fishing is great. Laundry facilities are very clean as well as showers. Staff very accommodating. We stayed here for 2 weeks and loved the park. Will return. Loved our stay. We camped at Lake Haven Retreat in a Fifth Wheel.

Good park for an overnight stopover. Conveniently right off of the interstate. We had a pull-through site, so it was easy in - easy out. Sites were level and well maintained. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at Lake Haven Retreat in a Travel Trailer.

Very convenient to downtown Indy, takes about 15-20 minutes to get there. Also very convenient to restaurants and stores in the Greenwood area. Easy access to the interstates. Owners live on-site and are very helpful and friendly. Park is clean and well-kept. Wi-Fi was usually reliable and the speed was adequate; only a few times did the system seem to bog down. Very clean and well-maintained laundry facilities. Downsides: a lot of sites are side-to-side and can result in close quarters, especially with slideouts. Sites are gravel and there can be a bit of mud or water in heavy rain; not all of the interior roads are paved. If you happen to be in a site near Hwy 37, it is pretty noisy. Overall, we felt this camp is desirable and is certainly the best place we have found to stay in the Indy area. We would gladly stay here again and have no reason to try to locate another place in the area. We camped at Lake Haven Retreat in a Travel Trailer.

A fairly large, modern campground that is well organized and surprisingly pleasant (given the close proximity of highways and industrial areas). Easy to get to and no problem for big rigs. The pull-through sites are of the shared-post type, with the benefit of a larger 'backyard' on the entry-door side of the rig. Gravel inner roads but well maintained. Good W/S/E connections, strong cell signal throughout the park. There is a nice pond and large, grassy areas to walk a dog. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at Lake Haven Retreat in a Fifth Wheel.

Very well maintained park. Adequate amenities. Large, clean and reasonable laundry. Easy access off interstate exchange. Most sites are dual (back to back), but are wide, so not problematic. Sites and some roads are level gravel, main roads are paved. Only criticism is that depending on the way rig owners park their rigs and their tow, interior roads can be really, really tight for big-rigs. Back-in sites eliminate that problem, if you can get one (but there may be some road noise). Camped here in a Motorhome. We camped at Lake Haven Retreat in a Motorhome.

Stayed 8 days/nights. West side of campground has back in sites backed to Hwy 37. Interior road has lots of speed bumps. Other side of park is somewhat quieter. Still hear traffic noise. Have planes flying over. Train air horn time to time. Park has pull thrus and some back in sites, no speed bumps. Has big rig sites, but not big rig interior roads. Interesting getting around with our HDT and trailer (60 ft combo) Paved and gravel interior roads, gravel side by side sites. Share the same water line with neighbor, so water pressure was very low at times. Have to like your neighbor since some RVers had parked pretty close to one another. As close as a couple of feet. Excellent wi-fi and cable TV. Park located next to a fire station. Sirens going off at different times of the day and night. Only had one night during our stay that we had to close our windows from campfire smoke so we would not die of smoke inhalation. We camped at Lake Haven Retreat in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice park, good hookups, good TV/Internet. Nice lake for catch & release. Nice staff. Quiet, relaxing and near all Indianapolis has to offer. A really nice touch was the map they give when checking in that shows exactly where shopping, restaurants, etc are that are close by...very helpful..didn't need the GPS. One suggestion would be to put a curtain or free-standing divider between the showers & toilets...it would be nice to dress in private. We would return here.

Park is very nicely maintained. Paved roads with rock sites. Site was level and long enough for us to stay connected to our 40 foot RV. Near a very busy road but many of the sites are a distance away. Wi-Fi is free and worked very well during our stay. Great value for staying in the Indianapolis area.

When you turn off of highway 37 onto Edgewood Ave, there is a large sign for the park, however, there is not a sign at the road where you turn into the park. It is the first right turn off of 37 and it looks like you are turning into someone's home. As a result, we missed it and called them about a block up the road for directions. If you go by the fire station, you have gone too far. Next thing is the speed bumps on the driveway as you enter the park. As you pull in you see the angled parking area for reservations which brings you diagonally across the speed bumps which will shake up a RV something fierce. Why any RV park has speed bumps is a mystery to me. The person at the front desk is very friendly. The interior roads and pads are gravel. The sites are easy to access with a big rig. I was in 51, and it was very level. All the hookups are together and easy to access. The Wi-Fi worked well for us and was fairly fast. I have a satellite dish, so I did not use the cable. Most of the pull thrus are side-by-side hookups with grass areas between the facing sites with a picnic table for each site. It was fairly quiet where we were with no train noise. It is a convenient, easy to get to, reasonably priced park. I am just not fond of side-by-side hookups. The back-in sites are obviously not side-by-side hookups. We would probably stay here again if in the area. We camped at Lake Haven Retreat in a Motorhome.

Amazingly, there are not many campground options in Indianapolis. This campground is clean, easy to get to and easy to get in and out of, and can accommodate big rigs. We were in site 59 which was level. Everything worked well except for the WiFi which was very slow. Office staff was very friendly. We would stay here again.

We sought out this park for an overnight while traveling west. It was one of only a few that were convenient. Take care in getting to the campground as it's a left turn off a busy multi-lane road with no traffic light. There is no sign at all indicating where the campground entrance is so there's another opportunity to miss it (the campground is next to, and behind the large fire station, and the entrance to the park looks like a driveway to a house). The rate shown included a 10% state tax plus a 1% city/county tax. Our site was good, level; Wi-Fi worked well. We'd stay again if we needed stopover while traveling through.

Not a lot of choices for the area, but this is the best one for me. Not a park with frills but for an overnight stay it is good. Nice level gravel site by a pond (watch where you step cause of the geese). Wi-Fi was good, owner friendly and helpful, good hookups. I would stay here again. Lots of permanent guests, so if that bothers you this isn't your place. We camped at Lake Haven Retreat in a Fifth Wheel.

We picked this campground due to its proximity to family we were visiting. The staff was very friendly and gave a nice map/list for out of towners for local businesses. The restrooms were clean and the laundry area was a good size and totally useable. The hookups were also good. We heard some train whistles later at night and the grounds are situated behind a fire station and next to a highway, so there is a noise factor, but it was not bothersome when we stayed. Each site has a picnic table and there is a group area for a fire. The geese are plentiful and fun to watch, but careful where you step! We enjoyed our stay and would return.
