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.
Tips for other Campers:
Indianapolis motor speedway museum is a must for racing fans!
Easy access from interstate, level gravel, pull through and thru. Very accommodating and friendly lady taking reservation. No hassle when we needed to change to one day earlier. Did not explore area as we were overnight only. We camped at Lake Haven Retreat in a Motorhome.
Lake Haven worked out well as an overnight stop for us. Our only complaint is that the entrance is very small for big rigs. We would recommend more signage regarding the best place to park for registration. Cable TV worked well. Park Internet was slow, but our Verizon service was fine.

Our space had a very fine gravel base, was level and the utilities were well placed. Office staff was friendly and knowledgeable. The campground and site was easy to get into and exit. We will stay here again when in the Indy area. We camped at Lake Haven Retreat in a Fifth Wheel.
Tips for other Campers:
It would be a good idea to make reservations in late April and May due to the 500 mile race.

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.

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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
