Jun 2007 - $25.00
Small, homey campground. Big rig sites are narrow. We stayed there several months, at a rate of $350 a month, in 2006 and 2007. Working-campers welcome. Arrangements can be made to winter there, although the owners go to TX for the winter. - Working Full timer

Nice family oriented facility. We arrived after dark when the office was closed, but they had all our papers and pass outside for us. No trouble getting in with our class C motorhome, but take it easy on the first road to the right. We had a full hookup. You more than likely will need a plastic sewer hose support for your sewer hookup and doughnut as the PVC was just a pipe with no threaded fitting. Wi-fi was supposed to coming from the barn, but we were so far away that our iPhones/iPad would not pick up the signal. My Macbook did find the signal. A lot of full-timers in the park, but most people around us were short-timers like us. Lots of golf carts.
Some reviews complained of uneven lots, but ours was so good that when we went into Lebanon to shop and came back I pulled back into the slot and got it dead on level. I found that there is a bubble level built into the Compass app on iPhone and it works pretty good.
There a activities on-site, but we did not partake in any. We missed the Thorntown "Changing of the Leaves" festival by one week. Lebanon had a festival in their downtown square.
Owners were nice and helpful. The office/store had some DVDs to rent as we left ours home by mistake. Despite heavy rain on 2nd night the roads remained in good shape. Didn't have any power problems.
We would stay here again. - TomAndKathy

Huge park with lots of seasonal campers. We visited my sister who is staying there for the summer. Did not partake in any activities although there was lots going on. - rockfarmer

Very large RV park.. Looks like lots of summer residents-loads of stuff for kids and adults to do. Lots were wide enough altho not much for shade.Would have given a 10 except very narrow streets for big rigs. Easy to side swipe vehicles parked in front of RV if not very careful. No Wi-Fi.. somewhat slow Verizon signal due to fact park lies in low lands. Would recommend for a longer family visit for sure. We stayed 4 days. - openrange

We paid a monthly rate of $500 for 50A FHU. All pull-throughs, lots of trees so no satellite but lots of shade. Nice pool. Gets pretty wet after rains. - singpj

We had reserved a 50-amp site, but due to another tenant mixup none were available. We received a slight discount on a 30-amp site, which was no problem. Site was slightly unlevel, but could compensate. This KOA could be beautiful, but is showing its age. Needs several loads of gravel dumped on each site; mine was more mud than stone. I like big trees and don't need satellite reception, so the grounds were good that way. Laundry room is old, machines are dated, but it was very clean. - Sespe

This was just a stop-over for us in our truck camper. This campground is older and it shows its age. The folks checking us in were pleasant. We asked for and received an 30-amp and water only site. There were full hookup sites and sites with 50 amps available. The spaces in the area we stayed were not all level, but we found one that was reasonably level. The restroom and showers are next to the pool and there were many kids in the pool so the restroom was a mess with paper on the floor, etc. We really don't blame the folks in charge as they would have to be there constantly to deal it. The showers had the old galvanized plumbing which was rusty and the floor mat did not provide the most level surface, but there was plenty of hot water and good pressure. Overall this is just a stop-over campground which suited our needs for the night. It was not full and was an easy find off the Interstate, so we are satisfied and feel it was about average for the KOA chain. - rvtech

Beautiful park like setting on the Sugar Creek. - Discus 277

This is a great, large park! It's next to a beautiful river with swimming, floating, kayaking. We had a 50 amp, full hookup, and other than the fact that there was no shade, everything was good. Almost level, mowed, gravel drive. Good water pressure and pretty quiet campground. Lots of things to see and do here. Plenty of channels OTA and good Verizon signal. We would definitely stay here if we are in the area. We stayed here because the previous ratings were good, better than the KOA. - Ginny H

Privately owned. Family friendly. Well kept grounds. Creek runs alongside CG. Were told there is a nice walking trail. We only stayed one night but would stay longer if not on a tight schedule. - ebaldy

This park is in the middle of a cornfield about 5 miles off I-65. There is a Dairy Queen restaurant about 10 miles away, but other than that, there is nothing around. It has mostly permanent residents, but they have an area for overnighters. The pull-throughs are long enough that you don't have to unhook but we had to do some maneuvering to get level. Roads are a bit narrow but manageable in our 40 foot coach with tow. There were some low hanging trees on the exit road. Satellite reception was good and our AT&T hotspot worked well. We would stay here again if traveling through this area. - dickens

This RV park is only open during racing events that are at the track across the street and at the Indy Motor Speedway, so about 30 days per year.
The park is beautiful and very well laid out. The is grass at every site and 50 amp electric. They have a double dump station and water station.
We attended the Brickyard 400, and stayed here as it was only 8 miles to the race track, much closer than other places. Though they might have been a little less as far as space rent goes, the convenience of Raceview made it worth the extra money for us.
If you are attending any race in the area we highly recommend staying here. - prstlkid

I'm staying here for the Labor Day week NHRA Nationals. Being a gearhead, I frequently camp "at the track" at quite a few different motorsport events and I find this place to be quite a nice experience. And the event package price of $400, when spread out over the 8 nights of the event and considering that this is an event-oriented campsite, is pretty reasonable. The campground and the spots are fairly level, the roads are gravel and smooth and there is well maintained grass everywhere. I'll stay here again. I've paid as much before and gotten much less. - wazafarmer

This is a campground in a field across from O'Reilly Raceway Park. There are some shaded sites along 2 tree lines. The rest of the campground is open. This is a race-oriented crowd, so be aware of the fireworks and music in the evenings. There is an sanitation dump for RVs. A short walk to the drag strip. If you're going to the oval track the walk is considerably longer. Generators are allowed. - revrnd

If you are looking for the amenities of a big RV park, Shades State Park is not the place for you. But if your rig boondocks, you can't beat it. My 32' motorhome fit snugly in the beautiful shaded site on the asphalt pad. Each site has a fire ring, an asphalt pad and a sturdy picnic table. Vault toilets were available in the Locust Grove campground area where I stayed, and flush toilets and clean showers were located within easy walking distance. Shades is one of Indiana's hidden treasures with hiking trails, waterfalls, rock bridges, etc. It is dark, dark at night with no ambient lighting other than campfires, tiki torches, and flashlights - great for star-gazing. The website is great and includes dimensions for every campsite in the park, so you can actually pick one that fits your rig. This was one of my best camping experience to date because so much time was spent outdoors. - shastagrrrl

We camped last year for the fourth of July, good thing we reserved about 3 months early! The park was full but still quiet. The bathrooms were absolutely disgusting: waste piled all the way to the top of the toilet seats! I walked to a few different outhouses with the same outcome. Yuck. Besides that, this was a nice, out of the way park to stay in. Watch out for the raccoons, they are ruthless! - honkadoodle

We stayed here on a Sunday following a booked weekend. The restrooms were a little too dirty for me, they were functional though. After they were cleaned on monday they were still dirty and had litter in them. There was a bit of litter in the campground and the fire pit was a mess. Overall it was very quiet and the staff was very friendly. We would stay here again, though I would probably try Turkey Run or Raccon SRA first seeing as they are so close. - Quiet Campers

This SRA was overall nice. There wasn't , however, much to do. The showers need upgraded. The were push-button type and very difficult to shower with that type of faucet. Restrooms are also in need of upgrade. My wife complained about the large amount of insects in women's restroom caused by the fact that the screens were missing. Overall it was a nice campground. - thegrinch

I had my pick of sites in the electric area and was able to get a fairly level site. This was very expensive for one night because I had to pay a $7 entrance fee (should have been $9 for out-of-state, but host gave me a discount) plus $34 for the site. My site was OK, but the pad was old and very narrow so had to walk on wet grass and mud. Also, I did not use the restrooms, but noticed that most of them were pit toilets. Lots of trees so I probably had the only site where I could get satellite reception, and Verizon was 3G only, and lucky to get that. Also, this place might be difficult for big rigs because the roads were narrow and it had some tight turns. I agree with the previous posted that this place needs some updates, but I was glad to have a very quiet, peaceful one-night stop. - judy_online

I have stayed at this park a few times but had not been in a couple of years. At that time I thought, man, they need to do some upgrades with the bathrooms etc. I took a chance and stayed there last W/E with my small 18 foot trailer. The area is beautiful , lots of trees and I was impressed with some of the big rigs that could get in and out of there. My site # was 97 , not level , on a hill and very small. The great disappointment was in the comfort house. None of the doors on toilets would close , everything was so old and falling apart. I peeked in the shower room and decided to go without a shower for 2 days. But the worse was the dump station , which they only have one for all those trailers, Waited in a line for over an hour to "get my turn" on the way out. You would think they would have a least 2 at this campground. Plus I was smart and prefilled my trailer with water at home. The water fill up station was on the road coming into the camp ground , also a line for that. I guess it is sad why some Indiana State parks can get upgrades and others do not. This park could be beautiful if a little money , that we pay, was spent on it. Will not be back again unless I hear improvements have been made. - BJG10

We stayed here for four nights in the notorious "Coke Lot" in May 2016. It was our first time to the Indy 500 and we had a fabulous time! All the horror stories we had heard about this lot did not manifest for us in any way. But there are quite a few reasons our stay was so great. Here are the tips: Line up early on the first day to gain entrance (5-6am). This is THE most important thing to do to ensure you get a spot away from the all-night partying debauchery. Show your Handicapped placard if you have one (or plead to placed there) and you will get a prime space on the NorthEast side of the lot, which backs up to a small stream. There will be no campers behind you and the lot on the other side of the stream is only used for day parking on race day = nice and quiet! There is a road directly in front of you = no campers. In fact, the green space in front of us beyond the gravel road did not fill up with tent campers until the day before. Our area was lined with wonderful RV'ers whom were older (like us) and incredibly friendly. All of the craziness was on the other side of the lot, where mostly everyone was tent camping. The noise was never a problem, because of it being off in the distance. (Certainly fun to go for a walk at night, though!) We were a short walk to the track. As others have mentioned, no hookups whatsoever, but water trucks, pump out trucks and ice vendors readily available. The first two night were virtually calm, as most people really don't show up until Sat. Our experience was amazing and we now know why the Indy 500 is "The Greatest Spectacle in Racing"! - jensenly

When I decided to camp at IMS for the 2014 Indy 500, I could not find any information or reviews for their lots available with electric. All I could find was about the notorious "Coke" lot, which is first-come, first-served, no electricity and 4 nights of mayhem. So, I wanted to write this review in order that first time campers might have some insight into the camping options at IMS with electric. We stayed in lot 3P, which is a paved parking lot on 16th street directly across from the Speedway. When I arrived, we were greeted, then a staff member escorted us to a site and connected our electricity. Electricity was provided through onsite generators which ran 24 hours a day. Although this noise was constant, we get used to it and overall, ,the noise level was more than acceptable. We went to bed every night by 11:00 and had no trouble sleeping. For those who needed it, fresh water delivery was available and onsite sewage pump outs as well. This was not a luxury camping experience by any means, but our expectations were exceeded in terms of convenience and atmosphere. We walked to the track in a couple of minutes and enjoyed our neighbors without having to deal with out of control partying. Please understand, there was plenty of good times happening in this lot, but things stayed reasonable and ended each evening at a reasonable hour. We had a spot reserved and 24 hour staff onsite. It was a bit pricey, but worth every penny in terms of convenience. - Phil from Akron

Lot 4: Our home for the Brickyard 400 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. One of the only times a year we " rough it." No electric or water hookups, so conserve what's in the tank and make sure you have empty black/grey tanks because there are no dumpstations either. It sounds bad, but we love it! Bring your generator if you want air conditioning though. It gets pretty hot out here. - Jason & Jennifer
