Nice campground. Many full time residents and workers but most places are kept tidy. Utilities are solid. Didn't try cable since we could easily use our satellite in the pull thru area. When I made the reservation, I was told only 2 nights available but on check in, asked again and she was able to make 3 nights happen so I appreciate the lady working that day making a little extra effort to accommodate us. Sites are fairly level and some what close but not intrusive. The WiFi is typical campground slow and clunky but it does work. I would stay here again if ever in the area. We camped at Lake Haven Retreat in a Motorhome.

Affordable park with decent sites that are good for exploring the Indy area. The sites are ground up asphalt and organized in a back to back pull through organization where you share a common hook up area with your neighbor. The sites are very close together with a small grass area and picnic table in the passenger side living area. We did not check out the bathrooms or laundry area. The wifi, however, worked. We camped at Lake Haven Retreat in a Motorhome.

Just 6 miles south of downtown Indy, Lake Haven is easily the closest RV park. The park is located in a very industrial area of town, with the associated large trucks and dust. South Indy itself is a little gritty. The park is fairly large and surrounds a fishing lake and grassy park. They arrange most of the sites in pairs back to back with both rigs sharing the FHU utilities; consequently, you are also facing front to front with the next rig and share a grass/picnic table area. It's a very quiet park with a majority of permanent residents, so this method worked fine, but it would be bad if your shared front yard neighbor was a party animal. Regardless, we lucked out with an end site overlooking the lake, spent many evenings sitting out enjoying the view. Only one combined laundry and bathhouse near the main office, so a bit of a hike from the back lots. Friendly and efficient staff keep the grounds very tidy. We camped at Lake Haven Retreat in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

There is a Kroger about a mile away, and a larger shopping center, with a Walmart about 4 miles away. Indy is a large city with a huge population and traffic is horrible in the mornings and evenings. Amazingly bike friendly city, with a very nice trail following the White River and one of the best urban bike/walking paths running right through downtown.

Front desk staff is super helpful and attentive. I accidently parked on the grass once and received a kind note asking me not to. :) I was super happy with the way they handled it. The sites are really close to the one behind it but gave us ample room in front that we share with another camper (ie buddy sites). We will very likely return to this place. I cannot express enough how kind the people at the front desk were. Also- if you have kids, walk them over to the fire station and chat with a fireman. He gave my daughter and I a tour of the fire truck and told us all about his job. It was very fun. My husband enjoyed the gaming scene in Indianapolis. Every Monday and Tuesday at local game shops they allow for open board gaming. All 3 of us had a good time here. 6 thumbs up! We camped at Lake Haven Retreat in a Motorhome.

Well run campground with friendly staff. Site layout is a little weird with the set up being driver side to driver side, but on a positive note, you don't see your neighbors sewer hookup when you are outside. The entire 200 section is mostly gravel. We were fortunate to get site 211 and had a grass side yard. Very close to the center of Indianapolis, with lots to do and see. We camped at Lake Haven Retreat in a Motorhome.

This is a good campground. Hookups worked fine and are in a good position, although side by side. Gravel Sites are long enough for our 35 foot fifth wheel, but are fairly close to each other. Restrooms/Showers are a good size, in good repair clean and bright. There are only two showers/toilets per gender. Security code needed to get in for after hours (3PM). We arrive during a really heavy downpour that lasted about an hour, our site got pretty wet, but several others had several inches of rain that surrounded their camper. Many big puddles lasted for over a day. Two days latter things were in good shape. We camped at Lake Haven Retreat in a Fifth Wheel.

All gravel sites with hookups. very basic. Staff was friendly. Maneuverability for 40' 5th wheel was good. Some pot holes in their roads needed to be repaired. I'd stay there again for a few days to explore the area if needed. We camped at Lake Haven Retreat in a Fifth Wheel.

Not very big rig friendly at all. Lot's of rocks to mark corners and tight turning areas. Neighbor parked pickup in our turn space causing issues. They were not around to move vehicle. Place full of full time fifth wheels with tacky insulation/duct tape around bottoms to prevent freezing in winter. Storm that came thru blew insulation all over the park. We camped at Lake Haven Retreat in a Motorhome.

This is the fourth or fifth time I've stayed here and it is always nice. While there are not a lot of things to do here, it is VERY well maintained and clean. The 24 laundry with heat and AC is always clean, with all the machines working. The spaces are good size, with strips of grass between you and your neighbors. The water supply is clean enough to not use a filter. They have decent cable and wifi (though don't be the guy who streams netflix and ruins it for everyone). The staff is very friendly an helpful. As others have mentioned there is a fire station next door. In my two weeks there the siren did go off once, but hey, we live in a society where we have first responders that are needed. So that's just a part of life. We camped at Lake Haven Retreat in a Motorhome.

There is a Pilot and a Flying J just down the street. So propane and fuel for big rigs is close by. There are also several fast food places around them. In the other direction a few miles is a 24 hour Kroger.
