9 Parks near Lafayette, Indiana
Jul 2016 - $24.00
This campground is nearly all long term campers. When you first come in it looks pretty bad but while we were here (2 nights) I realized its pretty full of campers with a lot of stuff all over but it was clean. I didn't see dog poop nor trash. Its very run down, the sites are very unlevel and it needs a lot of yard work done. It was a good price for full hook ups and in a good location. - Terry and Bob Simmons

Didn't read the previous comments. Should have, this is not an RV park nor Campground, just a place people park their rig's...some in horrible shape, to live in. The place looks like a junk yard. The only good thing I can say about our two night stay was that we were close to where we needed to be, and had a place to park our travel trailer. - Wynn67

I liked nothing about this place. Worst campground I have ever been to. Paid for a month, left after three days, and they said no to a refund. The game room was used as a catch all for the maintenance person. Bathrooms in poor condition. The kids just stayed in the camper. - Tony143

Great location for touring the Subaru manufacturing facility. Very quiet. Quick drive into Lafayette. Many seasonals. Call ahead to check on site suitable for big rig. Very helpful and friendly staff and owners. Would stay here again. - tillie

Very small sites, area is dirty, older couple was extremely rude. This is also a high theft area so watch your possessions. - Full timers traveling for work

Older campground. Sites are tight for a larger rig (we are over 60' with toad) so call ahead to make sure they can accommodate you. We stayed one night on way south so can't comment on area. Backs onto the Wabash river. Lots of trees. Owner friendly and helpful. Nice CG for smaller rigs. - K&J

I stayed here in site twelve. The owners are friendly and fun to be around. The weekend events are fun and entertaining for all ages. The campground is filled with trees so there is plenty of shade. There are plenty of walking trails and a swimming pool from Memorial to Labor day. We have stayed here several weekends during the regular season. We intend to come back again and again. - karab2779

Lots of large, level sites to choose from. My dog and I stop here for the trails. There are many miles of trails both grass and paved. All are well marked and maintained. Plenty to explore along the way too. - ljr

Good state park continually improving. Building fishing pond from gravel pits adding to pool, bike paths, shelters, working pioneer farm. Private pull-through exceptionally well laid out.
110 outlet circuit breaker was bad and after calling them was replaced within 30 minutes, great customer service.
They are anal about parking on the grass but large as the camp sites are there is no need to.
I was concerned about the playground area bike path being hidden by trees as riders approach the road, a blind spot exists and suggested it get mowed back last year to no avail.
A reluctance to trim out sucker type plants from the evergreens and shade trees is troubling.
Blacktop or concrete patios would be nice. The gravel sucks. - budwang

Park is beautiful, as it should be for the cost. $35.00 plus tax and a $5.00 processing fee. Then a $10.00 fee to enter the park. Park is set up and maintained very well. My only complaint would be that the water connection was on one end and the electric was near the other end, needed to set up just right to be able to connect both. Park is really family friendly with lots of thing for the family to do. Be sure to follow the website directions as 4112 E. St. Rd. park address listed is the office, not the park address. If not for the cost I would we could really enjoy this campground. - bkick

This place is soooo pretty! We were the only ones there on a Tuesday night. All the sites are back in, but they are spacious. All gravel except one for handicapped which is paved and has a paved sidewalk to the bathroom. They had water and 50 amp service, but no sewer. That was fine with us for one night, but hard to stay for any length of time. They do have a dump station though. For 21$ it was perfect for a place to lay over for the night. - GranNan06

Excellent experience. Exceptionally clean restrooms and showers. We were the only campers present. 15 spaces available. Electric hookup, potable water available and dump station. Quiet, and 11 miles from West Lafayette. - grapeidea

Very nice little county park. We were the only occupants in the park. Very clean restrooms and it was patrolled by deputy during the evening. Very quiet and would highly recommend this park for overnight or multiple days. It is outside of the city a ways so stock up on food and fuel before heading to the park. Good base camp for activities in the area. Would definitely stay here again. - bostonblackie

Camped here under Resort of Distinction (ROD) membership. Internet is good - cost is $2 for 24 hrs. Sites could use rock on sites and main roads - caused a lot of dust. We were there in Sept and it was off season. Personnel were friendly. Would camp here again. - partlot

Spent 1 night while traveling under WHR. Asked for FHU 50amp in open area for rooftop TV dish, worked well. Sprint cell & hotspot worked good. Did not see the rest of the park, worked OK for a night. - big greg

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

We have been coming to Caboose lake since 2012 and always enjoy are stay. Fishing is great and the lake is very clean. Plenty to do with the water activities along with a great staff. If you are looking for a clean and I mean clean park, caboose is the first choice. Caboose is number one for us, we will be coming back. - Al Capaccio

This was the only park in the area of our travels, so we decided to take a chance despite the poor reviews. After the last review, we considered cancelling our reservation, but was told that we were within the 10-day window that prohibited a refund. Entering the park, it is a long, dusty trip to the pull-through sites, resulting in a tow vehicle covered in dust. Hookups were not convenient; sewer was 20' to the rear of the power pedestal, water was 25' in front, requiring extensions for both. But the real problem is the noise - overwhelmingly loud, continual, and intrusive. We felt like we were parked in the median of the interstate, except that if we were we wouldn't have the roar of exhaust brakes as trucks slowed for the adjacent truck stop. WiFi was intermittent, Verizon cell/data was good, and there is no cable TV and little OTA. All this for $42 a night with the Good Sam discount. We will avoid this park in the future. - Meanderman

This park is way overpriced for what you get. Upon arrival the first view is of a tired old mobile home/office. Past that is a jumble of construction materials and half d0ne projects. The interior roads are potholed gravel. The individual sites are gravel with heavy grass intrusion. Sites are about 75' from an off ramp for I-65. If the noise from trucks and their jake brakes doesn't get you the vibration of the trucks driving on a road in poor condition will. Didn't use the bath/showers because they are a 1/4 mile away near the entrance to this very linear park. On top of their overnight rate they charge for every thing else. Anywhere from $8-20 per person/per day to use the beach/lake. Their "lake view" sites are the ones backed up against the Interstate. Your view is what you can see between the "lake side" sites. Water hookups are between every other site, not at each site.
The WiFi works ok for e-mail. The online feature for reservation didn't work. The site says they will call you. They did not.
The overall impression is that the park is tired. - CharlieB

Security is good during the week, but as for weekends it's not good. Water smells like sewage and is brown colored . - Teener

There was a time, many years ago, when this was a great campground. That is no longer the case, as it is now run down and in poor shape.
Sites are very close together and just unmowed grass, with picnic tables that are falling to pieces. On the plus side, they were at least level. Electric was good but water was terrible, with so much rust in it that it clogged my filter immediately. The showers smelled of the rust as well, I just turned it back off and decided to wait until my next stop.
Many, many well established seasonals in this campground. Some keep nice sites, others not so much. Roads were worn down, as was the mini golf course, and parts to a ride were scattered about the tennis courts, which had not seen use in a very long time. The water play area looked nice, the camp store was well stocked and staff was very friendly.
Campground is only worth a single night if visiting the amusement park. - Cyclonic

Check-in staff seemed put out to check anyone in even though only two of in office at the time. Wi-Fi almost non existent after paying extra for it. Lots of seasonal campers, which is fine as we were put by one and they were great. Kids run rampant at all hours of the night. There is no enforced speed limit. What swimming area that once was there is run down and nonfunctional. Fortunately there were 2 sewer hook ups there as the first one we opened had ants and maggots dwelling in it. Mini golf course is non functional. We won't be back. It is a shame as this could be a great facility if management would do some upgrades. I guess they figure why bother if people keep coming. Sad really. - like to camp
