This is a large RV park that is laid out in several sections. We were in a 19 site area in the back that had all long, level, gravel pull-through sites with full hookups and 30/50 amp. Sites are close together but there is enough area around the park to go for a walk and also walk a large dog. Office hours are limited in the winter but my phone call was returned promptly, I was able to make a reservation over the phone, and detailed campground information was waiting for me on arrival. The wifi worked on our laptop but not on the cell phones. Located convenient to the freeway and the Indy Motor Speedway. We camped at Lake Haven Retreat in a Motorhome.

Good Sam rate for one night. There was only one site available when we made a reservation. The site was an unattractive, narrow, back-in site that was all gravel. There are pull-thru sites that have grass and are more attractive. The site was a FHU, 50 amp site. We had good Verizon cell/MiFi reception and good satellite reception. There is easy access to I-465. In a pinch, we would stay here again. We camped at Lake Haven Retreat in a Motorhome.

When arriving, you'll turn from State Road 37 onto Edgewood Avenue. You will make an immediate right turn into the park. You will see what looks like a single family home which is the office. It may seem obvious but it wasn't for us! If they installed an "enter" sign, I think that would help. We stayed one week. The weekly rate is $186 but add on a 7% sales tax AND 10% county tax. We paid $217 total. This park is an easy drive to downtown Indy, various sports venues and the Indy Motor Speedway. As always, when you stay close to a city, there are going to be trade-offs. In this case, the park is adjacent to a busy highway and there is a fire station next door. However the section closest to the highway appears to be only long-term folks. And, surprisingly, we hardly ever heard a fire siren - maybe 3 times during the week. I suspect the fire trucks don't turn on the siren until they get to the highway. The section for short-term stays is away from the highway distanced by a nice fishing lake, large grassy area and the main office. You can still hear a low-level hwy buzz but it's really not bad. Nearly all short-term sites are pull-through with plenty of space for big rigs with toads. The CG was full while we were there so we had a back-in. We still had sufficient space and even a view of the lake. The office staff was proficient and friendly with reservations and check-in. The CG maintenance staff was very nice. The long-term section is well cared for and the the folks there were also very nice. Verizon cell and Sprint Mifi worked great. Obtaining a DirecTV signal was no problem although there are some trees in the pull-thru section so you might make a point to request a sat friendly site if it's important. All hook-ups worked perfectly and water pressure was fine. CG wifi was hit or miss (typical for an rv park). Given our need to be in Indianapolis, we were very happy with this park and enjoyed our stay. We would definitely stay here again if in the area. We camped at Lake Haven Retreat in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Downtown Indy is very walk-able. Monument Circle is beautiful and the Eli Lilly Civil War Museum inside of the monument is well-done and free! The museum is specific to Indiana's role in the civil war so it's not too huge - an hour ought to do it. The Indianapolis Motor Speedway museum is fun even if you're not a race fan. Spend the extra few bucks to tour the speedway itself and "kiss the bricks".

This park is well maintained and run, sites are close and none are fully shaded. About 70% of sites are monthly or longer. Good laundry. Trunk bumper to trailer bumper we are 59', turns were doable but challenging. We barely fit onto the site but have seen worse. Came here for medical reasons and enjoy the park and area. We camped at Lake Haven Retreat in a Fifth Wheel.

The sites were very close together - the hook-up side was right next to the other MH, but there was a nice enough grassy area on the other side. Very tight parking, but we got in w/o disconnecting. Nice walking areas. Few nearby trees. no landscaping. We camped at Lake Haven Retreat in a Motorhome.

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.

Very nice staff, on site RV repair business quite reasonable, mowing a tad lax, many seasonal RVs but plenty of travelers as well.

Very near city creature comforts so shopping and restaurants plentiful.

WiFi, typical Campground with OK to poor usefulness.

Limited RV parks in Marion county so competition limited choices.

Good spot to do your work or touring Indy, not a destination park. We camped at Lake Haven Retreat in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Terrible signage, you will drive right past the entrance thinking it's a home vs. the RV park office. Best way to avoid problems are to enter as follows:

IN 37 south (off I465) left on Epler at light, first right on Kopetsky, right on Edgewood making a left at the 3rd driveway on the left. I watched at least 6 campers drive right past this poorly labeled RV park entrance. The RV parking to register isn't much better, especially with a toad.

Great Mexican south on Southport near the Kroger grocery.

Pancake emporium good for breakfast with decent WiFi.

We made a great choice staying at Lake Haven Retreat, even though it was only for 2 nights. From our view, this is a campground made mostly for self-contained big rigs, as our 24' travel trailer paled in comparison to some of our neighbors. They have the pull-through sites designed so that your neighbor is aimed in the opposite direction, putting the utilities between the two of you. Our slide was about 4 feet from the slides on the huge dual axle motorhome next door, but they weren't there during our stay, so we didn't have any noise issues. It is not difficult to see that this is a well-maintained, clean, efficiently run facility and I would stay here again if in the area. We pull out tomorrow, but looking at the decorative rocks/boulders along the park roads, I don't think they will cause us any issues. We camped at Lake Haven Retreat in a Travel Trailer.

We use this park when attending the Indiana State Fair. The sites we've had are level, with convenient power, water, and sewer. The cable TV connection has worked well. WiFi is often very slow. Bathrooms and showers are clean and well stocked. The park is quiet at night. Because we've been busy exploring Indianapolis, we've had neither the time nor the inclination to sit out under our awning. For our purposes this is a good place to stay. We camped at Lake Haven Retreat in a Fifth Wheel.

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.

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.

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 right into the driveway BEFORE the fire station. The campground was clean as was our site.
