Rate shown is their "in after 3 and out before 10" rate. This park is one easy day's drive from our home and we almost always stay there when heading west. Staff is helpful and friendly although office is usually closed when we get there. Utilities work well and we are able to pull in quite a few TV stations from the antenna. Site could have used a little more gravel and could have been more level but it was the end of the season and we never have that problem in the spring/summer when we visit. - SandyA

What a pleasant surprise. We stop here so my husband could visit the Hoosier Gym, after watching the movie. We had large pull through site, very clean campground and friendly staff. - TheBounders

This is a wonderful family park. We have never stayed in a Yogi Bear Park before due to the huge number of kids that usually come. My hat is off to the staff for all the games and activities they plan. We rarely saw any kids, even on the rainy days. The pull through sites are grass or gravel and very level. They are set up as buddy sights. The staff went out of their way to help with anything you need. The owners were lovely people to meet. Yes I tasted iron in the water but we had a filter on so nothing got stained. There was some road noise but not enough to bother us. - esta34950

Easy to find, wide entrance, tree-lined with white fence! The first building you come to is NOT the office, it is past the small gatehouse, ahead and to the right. Mature trees providing nice shade. Interior roadways are a mix of asphalt and gravel. Our site was loose gravel, not well-packed, and our coach sunk in quite a bit. Dump station on exit. Very clean and well-kept with trash can and non-potable water to clean up. Mainly a Christian retreat, there were many many long-term travel trailers parked there, and many families with children. Lovely playground area for them, and a pool as well. Office staff were very friendly and helpful and there's a small campstore onsite. Wifi was not useable to us, signal was too weak. Trash is collected from the front of your site. Some sites are on the side next to the interstate, but the road noise was not too bad at all. - DebbieT in Alabama

Very nice campground with easy access off of I-70. Super nice owners who work hard to keep the place up. Great for overnight or longer stays. - Ken-1234

Stayed here for work for a couple months so I paid the monthly rate. $650 for full 50 amp hook up. Very helpful staff and very kid friendly in the summer. This is a christian values campground but all they ask is to respect your neighbor and keep the noise down after hours. Had the grandkids come and stay a couple weekends and they had a blast. One of them fell asleep standing up against Grandmas leg he was so tuckered out, lol. Don't quote me on the nightly rate as I never paid that way. Go to their website for current rates. - Tim Cottrill

I'm on a seasonal site here at Walnut Ridge. It's about an hour from my house, and my sister and brother in law also come out and camp--our schedules are different enough that we rarely overlap. Therefore, it's perfect for us.
Walnut Ridge the campground pre-dates the RV dealership of the same name. Apparently, once Gary Hart bought the campground way back when, they ended up selling a few campers here and there and the idea for the RV dealership was born. Most people know of the dealership first--it is a very busy place these days. There is a service center as well. If you buy from the dealership, you can spend 2 free days camping at the campground. It's a nice way to become familiar with your new purchase.
I did buy from Walnut Ridge, but I'd no idea at the time where I was going to store it. When I saw the campground and learned I could keep my new TT on a seasonal site for about the same price as paying for yearly storage, I was sold.
I love camping here. Having ready access to my trailer without having to move it is nice. It's a very quiet campground, with lots of friendly people. The grounds are kept very clean and they have lots of activities. There's mini golf, a playground and a very nice pool. The store sells ice cream. WiFi is very good. I love the trees and the birds, though not too fond of the squirrels and their destructive ways.
There are pull-through sites for temporary visitors, which I've used. I can pull my trailer out to go places, and find the roads and paths to be well kept. There aren't any poorly kept sites to be seen.
My sole complaint is the lack of sewer hookup, but I recognize that it's impossible given the hills of the place. They do offer a pump service, but I got my own honeywagon and empty that way. It's not bad. They treat you like family here, and I love it. - drdit92

This has more seasonal campers in it than anyone else. They have an area set up for people who have bought a new camper from them to stay for 2 nights free. Not sure if you can pick a different area to "camp" in there, but never saw anyone other than seasonal campers in other areas. There isn't any sewer hookup,only water & electric, and its hard to dump your tanks how they have it set up. It's on a hill, on a turn, and its some maneuvering to get it lined up to dump. While you are doing that, the road is pretty much blocked. The 2 days we were there, our sink, & toilet turned brown from the water. TWO DAYS! The campground is clean, is quiet, looks really nice though. If you want to go swimming, it costs $5 a person. I never knew any place that charged to swim if you are camping. I was told by the man in the office that the rates are compatible with all the campgrounds in that area. They aren't. Check for yourself. I would never stay there unless it was an emergency. It's overpriced. - happy2013camper

Stayed here two nights due to weather. Closing on the 14th for the season. Beautifully kept area inside and out. Showers were not new but very clean and well maintained. We appear to be the only ones left here that are not full time. Staff is most helpful and has a wonderful supply of tools if you forgot your saw, etc. I agree that the dump station is a strange spot on the way out. Easy access, cement pads for pull through, friendly, and even they escorted us to our site. I would return. - Cape Cod

Just stopped here for a quick overnight on our way back home. Lots of seasonals here, but wasn't populated on a cold Monday night. We got escorted back to our pull through, a nice bonus.Place seems decent. - Bob806

Though park is on the highway, it is large enough and the sites were far enough from the highway to be mostly quiet. Large, flat sites. Lots of lawn to play ball with the dog. Lady running check in very helpful - opened a normally closed, more direct exit for us the next morning so I wouldn't have to maneuver some tight corners getting out. - EnjoyinLife

Very nice, well maintained park conveniently located just off I-70. 30amp, FHU, pull-through site with an escort to the site. 51 OTA TV signals, good WIFI. About the only thing lacking would be 50 amp service since the weather was hot and we had to be judicious with our power requirements. Regarding other reviewer's comments about the trees, the park became a victim of the "ash borer" which did quite a bit of damage to the trees and many had to be (and are still being) removed. Staff very friendly and helpful. Since the park is next to the highway some folks would probably not care for the noise. We would definitely return if in the area. - Bob & Stephanie

Rest Rooms was very unclean and so were the showers. Treated very disrespectful after letting office know. - Troy Js

OK, it's February in Indianapolis and not many places were open. Surprised to see how many people are living year-around in this park and all the creative way they were using to "insulate" and "winterize" their rigs. Some rigs were in good shape, but many did not look road-worthy. A fifth wheel down the road had interconnected yurt structures and it looked like he was heating with wood. (Wood splitter next to rig.) There were trash bags scattered around the park and did not see a dumpster to dispose of trash. After going over to check out bathhouse, I decided I would not use the restrooms or showers. Stayed here in desperation--would not stay again. - RagTopDay

After reading other reviews, thought it couldn't be that bad - but it is. Grouchy, slow check in. GS discount only good for one night. Grass up to your knees, if you want it cut, you must borrow their mower and do it yourself. Muddy 'beach' Gross indoor pool. Old moldy trailers everywhere. Trash sitting around. Water was BROWN. Electric went out on us twice. Sewer hookup was crushed. Picnic table sitting in a rectangle of mud from previous occupant's mat and dog run. Management doesn't care. - cincychic

This place is the best. They really cater to everything. Huge playground for kids including jump houses and a trampoline that I'd like to take a bounce on. Owner does an excellent job of keeping the place neat and tidy. - 4deepinanrv

As we approached there were no roadside signs indicating park's name or which driveway was the entrance. After we disconnected from the truck, got level, extended the slides and connected the utilities, we discovered that the power pedestal did not have power. One of the workers said that they were having trouble with the underground wiring and offered to relocate us. Later I noticed that the romex wire from one light standard to the next was laying ON TOP of the ground. The park claims to have 360 spaces but when I tried to use the only laundry I found a tiny room with just 2 washers and 2 driers, and the staff was uncertain where the closest laundromat was. The store inventory was primarily candy and chips with almost no RV or camping supplies. The overall appearance of the facilities was one of a general lack of caring. - tweymouth

Arrived by their directions from town. Told to turn off at Bridge. There are entrances on both sides of bridge. I turned in first one, it was muddy narrow roads without room to around in a 40ft motor home. Had to unhook tow vehicle to get out. Even then the power lines were too low, ripped off CB antenna and wind turbine for awning off. Owner denied responsibility, said he was not driving and motorhome too big. Not big rig friendly. Office was close at 3PM, had to wait for worker to arrive. Asked for satellite accessible space, and was led to tree shaded spot with no satellite access, was told to move to another after setting up. Very rude disrespectful workers who do not listen or appear to care at all. Place is full of full timers and the roads are narrow with people working on their vehicles in the roads making the roads even more impassable. Spaces are narrow and some pull thrus are back to back making a "pull thru" not a pull thru if someone is on the other end. I do not recommend this place for motorhomes or any big rig units. Worker were not the least bit concerned and they did not help me get my motor home out or deal with power line scrapping the roof. The campers helped me get out, not the campground workers. They did not pay for any repair damage. Very poor management. Do not go there. - Bright- eyes 1

1st time back in several years, returned due to upgrade of electric hookup to include 50amp. As with most Indiana State Parks, this park is well maintained. Service locations are acceptable, but 50 feet of water hose is needed for shared water faucet between sites. As full timers we carry 100 feet of hose at all times. Our site was easy to level on, others were uneven front to back. - Teacher's Pet

Summit Lake Reprise
We reviewed Summit Lake in 2013, and were not terribly impressed with the park facilities. Our recent visit indicated that things are looking up!
The electrical problem has been remedied; campground 'A' has been completely re-wired with all new boxes and 50a service. The bathrooms are still mediocre, but they've been cleaned up, a fresh coat of paint, and other minor improvements have been made to spruce up the facilities. The showers still need better drainage and they pretty much drain into the hallway floor, but that's an engineering issue, not cleaning.
DNR staff was walking through the campground on Friday and Saturday night, introducing themselves as security, and indicating they'd be on property until 4am. They were personable fellas and it was nice to know that staff was 'minding the store'. In addition, DNR vehicles regularly passed through the campground. We've noticed this trend at other state parks this year, so there might be a new directive in order from the state.
The trails are easy (although described as moderate), the lake has many options for fishing from the bank, and staff shared that resurfacing the interior roads is on the horizon, as well as new gravel at the campsites, and a re-wiring of the electrical in campground 'B'. Seems like they're intent on upgrading this property.
Campground A is mostly level and open, and the sites have shared, fresh water posts (two to a post). We needed 75' of hose to connect, but it's nice to have a fresh water hookup at a state park in Indiana. Campground B is more rolling, and few sites in B would accommodate more than a pop-up or tent.
We are pleased with our recent visit to Summit Lake and will return. - fastalker64

We had one of the few pull-thru's. The park was well-groomed, the people were friendly, and the lake was clear and beautiful. Fun to ride our bikes! Our site was without shade, but there were other ones available in wooded areas. We would definitely stay there again. - Jeff Jangerous

This is a casino parking lot. Well lit, safe, very level with excellent drainage. Asphalt surface, easy in and out, space for many many campers. They welcome you to stay, hope you'll come in and spend some money. Check with security when you see one, let them know you're there. Slides out is just fine, generator is too. You will be directed to park in the "middle lot", between where the cars park and where the truckers park. Lighting is excellent, many security cameras, shuttle buses.... free. - DebbieT in Alabama

We stayed here two times over two weeks. The people in the office were terrific and friendly. The swimming pool - although we didn't use it - was beautiful and full of fun stuff for the kids. Sites were long and wide enough. BUT everything was very dusty. Had to was the toad both times after we pulled in. Signage to the office could be better and where to park while you check-in. There was a building between parking and the office and we weren't the only ones confused. I needed two propane tanks filled and the process was to take them to the office and leave them - they were delivered to our site later! Great service. As always, KOA is way over priced and this one is even worse than usual. - Saltydog44

Our site was great... patio with fire-pit. Grounds very clean, they picked up your trash each morning..( sometime twice). Staff extremely nice. Pool was great. The only thing I can say against the park is there are only one set of showers by the pool. If you are on the far side of park... a walk in the morning. A little higher priced, but we enjoyed our stay!! - Debbydif

I am located on a deluxe site across the creek from the office & pool (Section D). Huge sites with some shade. Good 50 amps and sewer & water appropriately placed. Very quiet away from the pool. Friendly and helpful personnel. Good location. - Freedom Bus

I really want to love this campground - close to home, archeological site - but I can't. It's a little tired, a little dated, a little worn, a little noisy. Part of the problem is that the city of Anderson has grown up around the park. The campground abuts on Anderson Municipal Airport, so you will hear planes. It's close to railroad tracks and there are trains (and their horns) all night. The roads are tight and most campsites are at a right angle to road, rather than slanted for easier access. Despite what the official descriptions say, very few spots are level. (We had to level so much that our back wheels were off the ground in a site described as level.) There are random cars/pick-ups driving through the campground. On the good side, the staff and rangers are very nice and checked us in fast and there is a small campstore with bagged ice and ice cream. - Indybear

This park has horribly tight roads and the sites are difficult to maneuver any size RV. Sites are close and straight very few angled ones. Very disappointing for the price charged. New electric boxes no water on site. Pathetic for the price. If we had a better choice in this area we would not be here. The state of Indiana should be ashamed to treat campers and tax payers this way. Good thing we do not have a tow vehicle because there is no place to park it. - Satuthom

This park did not suit our needs. We are a senior couple traveling through, staying one night, towing a car. Check-in time on Sundays and holidays is 5:00 PM, which we did not know. So we waited in our coach over an hour in the hot sun waiting for our reserved site to become available. No pull through sites were available when we reserved a few weeks prior to arrival. So after unhitching the car and getting in our site 47 (in full sun), all we wanted was a shower and peace and quiet. The shower was awful. Cement floor, push a button inside the shower stall for 20 seconds of lukewarm water. No temperature or water pressure control. No place to put your soap or shampoo. Very low water pressure made rinsing my hair a long slow process. No exhaust fan in shower area. Very old building. That said, this would be great for families with little kids. Lots of children riding bikes and playing in the grassy area. - Breezy2011
