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

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

$30 weekdays, $40 weekends plus daily fee. We stayed in the nice treed area. This is the most I've spent at a state park. They are pretty proud of themselves. May have stayed longer if it weren't so expensive. - Coley

The entire park is BEAUTIFUL. The entire park and all bikes trails are paved, which is great too! The campground is pretty small, which means the kids can play and ride their bikes without us freaking out about them getting lost. There are a total of 110 sites - half of them are full hookup nestled into a lovely wooded area. The other half are electric hookup sitting in the prairie. Though they have planted trees throughout and it is just as gorgeous. All of the sites are spacious, mostly-private, and have gravel in them (no messy mud when it rains! Bonus!). They are also lined with rail-ties to keep the gravel in place. The sites are numbered with boulders at the entrance to each one.
The playgrounds are really nice! They have 3 separate very nice playgrounds in the park that are designed for various age groups. We're pretty sure the age recommendations are not always followed by the visitors but it is still a neat concept and shows the details that were put into the planning of this park. The equipment is great and varies between wood, metal, and plastic playing structures. There are also seating areas for the parents to enjoy if they aren't feeling the need to chase after their kidlets.
The bathhouse is AMAZING. Nice large stalls. I mean LARGE. Big enough to practice pretty ballet moves in them. They also have nice warm water and are clean. I, personally, still wouldn't walk around barefoot but I'd say these showers are clean enough to do so.
The Aquatic Center is great! Not too big and not too small. Just the right size for the kiddos to have fun. They have a lazy river (though I'm not sure I'd classify it as lazy. Lots of water being dumped and sprayed on you), a shallow area with water features, some fun slides, water-basketball hoops. They also have a concession stand. - Lets Go Camping They Said

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 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

The campground itself is nice but they are very rule orientated: no mats at all, no satellite dishes on ground, they require doing your sewer, and outdoor activities during day hours only. The noise from the highway is unbearable and when we were there they were doing road construction at night so the noise never ended! - Full timers traveling for work

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

Dirty, trash bins full, roads are awful, sites are just grass and overgrown. Trees need cutting, tables need upgrading. Folks just pass this one by. Old, needs upgrading. Put us under a dead tree. Lots of full time sights, that have been here a while. - Butcherboy13

Filthy bathrooms!! We actually took pictures to the office to make our point. The one nearest our location was closed, but did reopen the next day. We were hosting a rally and when our guests tried to make reservations, it took many attempts to get anyone to answer the phone. Several ended up calling New York (main office) to make reservations. Only one trolley was running and it would take patrons to the south end of the beach to a swinging bridge, not the amusement park itself. Several in our group were handicapped and unable to use the swinging bring, so did not go to the amusement park. They had shut down the closer road to the trolley due to the poor conditions of the roads in the amusement park. Several of the workers did their best to help, but their hands are tied. The new owners have certainly let the campground deteriorate into a very sad state. We had been their a few years before and were very happy.....no one is our group will ever go back. There is no refund given...for any reason. They only give camping credit for another time. Think hard before you commit to this Campground!! - Oldbug76
