We chose this campground as a base for activities in indianapolis and it was the perfect choice. It was easy to get into, check in and get into our site. Other reviews complained of rocks being in the way making it difficult to pull a rig through but we had no issues in our f350 extended cab pulling a 35 ft travel trailer. The campground was immaculate, lawns cut, landscaped, a pretty little lake, grass between campers and a few small trees on each site for a little shade. The sites are pretty close together but it seemed that no one was ever "home" so it really didn't matter. It was very quiet, and our kids may have been the only ones there. If you have kids and are looking for entertainment for them in the campground, there is nothing. However, after going to the amazing children's museum and zoo (each takes a full day to see) they were exhausted and we're happy to sit and watch the campground cable (which worked perfectly). We had site number 76, which was excellent. The sun was behind us. It would have been pretty miserable if we had been on site 75 or another site facing the sun as it was hot when we were there. I would recommend a site with the back of your camper to the lake if you go during the summer. There was a picnic table but no fire ring on our site. There are central fire rings around the lake with split wood provided but not on the sites. We ordered pizza from Greeks. They delivered it to the campground 15 min after ordering and it was delicious. We will stay here the next time we come visit indy. We camped at Lake Haven Retreat in a Travel Trailer.

Urban campground just off the southern bypass. Big rig friendly but some turns could be challenging depending on how full the park is and where people place their cars or trucks. It's a circuitous route to get to the transient pull thrus. No shade there. Utilities are convenient and there are 10 wifi antennas all thru the park, so we had good connection. Water pressure seemed weak. No off leash dog park. Nice lake with geese. It's a large park but feels tight and small. Some longterm residents have their stuff spread out on their sites: full size grills, patio furniture and umbrellas, fire pits, golf carts, even a chest freezer at one site. Makes it look very crowded. This was just an overnight for us and we'd likely stop here again if passing thru. We camped at Lake Haven Retreat in a Motorhome.

There aren't many choices in the Indianapolis area. This is the second time we have stayed at Lake Haven Retreat. We stayed 2 nights at the beginning of the 4th of July weekend, and the park was packed. Ordinarily, it is easy to get into and out of, but because people were parked all over the place, it was little more challenging on such a busy weekend. Staff are very friendly, and the park is easy to find and not too far off I-65/465. Don't take city streets to get to the park off I-65; go to 465 and come back on IN 37. We left a day earlier than planned, and despite their stated policy of no refunds, they refunded out money for the night we didn't use. Neighbors face opposite directions in this park which is nice. Wi-Fi and cable did not work well (not enough bandwidth). All other utilities were fine. We camped at Lake Haven Retreat in a Motorhome.

Big rig friendly with level sites. Only one men's and women's bathroom with two showers each but water was hot. Water pressure was not very good. Cable and laundry was good. No pool or activities but ideal for going to Indianapolis Speedway. We camped at Lake Haven Retreat in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice campground and exceptionally convenient for touring in and around the Indianapolis area. Staff pleasant and helpful and deliver on their commitments! While the sites are tight on the service side our our coach, on the passenger sides there is plenty of room to be outside and not feel closed in. When you turn onto West Edgewood, you need to make the first left into the driveway BEFORE the fire station. The campground was clean as was our site. We camped at Lake Haven Retreat in a Motorhome.

The ground is very soft, unleveled, and difficult to walk on, because it's always slippery from loose asphalt rocks. (Especially when you've recently had a hip replacement surgery, and asked several times to be moved to level site.) We stayed here from June 1 - July 25th. We will not be back unless they can fix their parking spaces. This park is not ADA compliant, has no hand rails in the showers, or benches for privacy in the shower areas. A loose curtain and public bench, which is visible from the laundry room door, (where you can be seen by fellow campers) REALLY doesn't count. This is our third and final stay here, the only thing I can say positive it's close to INDY! We camped at Lake Haven Retreat in a Fifth Wheel.

We arrived to visit family, this park is nice and clean , friendly staff, roads are gravel. Corners Can be a bit tight if your in a bigger RV. We were close to the pond. Laundry room was clean. Will stay here again in the future. We camped at Lake Haven Retreat in a Fifth Wheel.

Large campground and many sites are just all gravel. Some have grass. Utilities OK. No table, patio, or fire ring at the sites in the 200 range. From what we could determine, only one bathhouse/laundry facility for the entire campground. Office closed on Tuesdays and weekends. We camped at Lake Haven Retreat in a Motorhome.

Was not real impressed with this site. We're in a 38' MH and many of the corners were really tight. Our site had a huge propane tank near the edge of the site. I can only assume that it was a leftover from the previous occupant. The spaces are very tight. There was some kind of framing board with screws and nails laying on our picnic table that just seemed to disappear in the afternoon of the next day. The water pressure was horrible. I assumed there was something wrong in my water center but subsequent parks have been fine so I can only assume it was their water. I talked to the people in the office about it but they just said that they haven't had any complaints about it. There was a nice lake but that was about it. I can't say that I would never stay here again but I would think twice about it. We camped at Lake Haven Retreat in a Motorhome.

We enjoyed walking round monument circle and check out Rhythm! Discovery Center if you like to make music. Our son loved it and begged to go back.

We stayed here in our motorhome. At first we didn't have problems. While we were there we had to move sites and while we were moving our motorhome hit a rock and took a lot of paint off our basement door and bending it back. There are these huge rocks that a man put there to keep off the grass. They are not decoration at all. We could not even turn without hitting the rocks and they are all over the campground. When you put your slides out you have about 6 to 12 inches of space from the camper next to you. The woman in the office had us change our campsite 3 times. The people there do not know who's coming in or who's leaving; it's run poorly. Last but not least it's not big rig friendly. You can barely get from site to site without hitting a rock. I would not recommend this campground unless desperately needed. We camped at Lake Haven Retreat in a Motorhome.

We stayed at Lake Haven for a weekend while we visited family in the Indy area and used the campground for this reason only. Staff was very friendly and helpful when I called and when we arrived. Restrooms, showers and laundry area were very clean. CG was very quiet and we had no noise from adjacent fire station. Campground was well kept. Most roads are gravel and camping pad is gravel. CG is in an area of businesses and not really a nature lovers campground. I would definitely stay here again for how we utilized it or for a quick overnight stay. We were in a back-in site, #43. Many restaurants and shopping within driving distance. No campfire rings provided at sites. We camped at Lake Haven Retreat in a Travel Trailer.

We arrived on Sunday which the office is closed however inside a mailbox by the office door was an envelope with our information and site number. The main road into the park is paved but it transitions to gravel as you enter the rows of campsites. Our site was #88 which was fairly level. The wifi was outstanding. The woman in the office was very friendly and helpful with area attractions or shopping. The park is very quiet at night even though you are next to a firehouse and highway (didn't hear either one our entire stay). Only improvements we found that could be done is shower mats other than that, it is a very nice place. We will stay here again when in the area! We camped at Lake Haven Retreat in a Motorhome.
