We were seasonal campers at this camp ground for years. It has steadily declined in seasonal campers because the owner increases the rent every year, while not maintaining the grounds or stocking the fishing lake. They spray chemicals in the lake with total disreguard for swimmers using the beach area and anyone fishing. The spraying boat has a huge pump that sprays what appears to be copper sulfate (blue] right where you are trying to fish and blasts the swim area also while swimmers are still in the water (including kids]. On more than one occasion, parents screamed at there kids to get out of the water because of this. This happened on a Sunday. Really? We have since also pulled out permanently after dealing with this nonsense, Could go on and on with other things we have witnessed but will stop with this. The owner seems to only care about the money, and the camp ground reflexs this. - iwashere

I checked in after seven. Jim the camp host was very friendly along with everyone I met. I got set up and them walked up to the "store" to pay. Long walk. mix up on my site number, but was handled quickly. I understood the fees as the park is more amusement for family than for an overnighter . Site had been mowed and left the clippings behind, must have been a foot tall before mowing, Jim said they had a lot of rain. - captjer

Pulled in to Modoc & went to the store to check in. Was given a map for our site. Got there about 5 -6 pm. The 1st night set up and just walked around the camp grounds, let the kids play at the play ground. Not sure of our site number, last row near the street. Very noisy from road traffic. Folks seem to haul it down this road. The next morning we ate breakfast & we headed to the pond. Not a lot of folks there as most pulled out that morning. There were about 10-15 folks swimming. Some very young 2-3 years old. My husband and myself were sitting on the beach area watching our grandkids swimming. They were in the pond about a half hour or so when a boat spraying something was on the other side of the pond. We ask a couple that was sitting near us if they were full time here or visiting and if they knew what was being sprayed. They had stated they were full time & had no idea what was being sprayed. There was another couple who was there visiting. They had ask the boat driver what he was spraying. The boat driver ignored him. My husband went over to the boat driver and ask also. He ignored him also. My husband noticed the boat driver was wearing gloves, long shirt and long pants. My husband ask if this stuff he was spraying was hazardous because of him being completely covered while he was spraying. He finally answered and said state regulations. We told our grandkids to GET OUT OF THE WATER IMMEDIATELY. Several others were screaming the same thing. We all went to find the owner and find out what was being sprayed. The owner stated he did not know BUT he would bring us a chemical paper of what was being sprayed. The 1st line read Hazards to humans and domestic animals. DO NOT get on skin clothing in eyes -mouth or inhale. To achieve desired control with herbicide in flowing waters (which this is not), a minimum exposure period of 3 hours should be maintained. ARE YOU KIDDING ME???? Rec'd a refund of 1/2 our swimming fee and our camp fee for that day. Loaded up and left immediatly. NEVER COMING BACK HERE AGAIN. - Loandiva

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

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

Personnel are very nice; and most of the grounds are kept up nicely also. However, it appears that this CG has a problem with an unusual number of dead and dying trees, perhaps due to a bug infestation. By the amount of stacked firewood at permanent sites, It would appear that management is making every effort to keep up with maintenance. However, even to access the open field sites where it is safe, one must travel through the wooded section, which contains numerous dead trees obviously ready to fall. We saw 3 crushed units that had been destroyed by fallen trees. Another worry I would have is that children riding their bikes, etc. through this area could be in danger. This would be an ideal CG if not for this problem. - hartk

We made reservations ahead for a shady site. We were escorted to a site which we backed into. Once we had a chance to get out of the vehicle and look around we were horrified. Trash on the ground. Unkept sites all around. Trailers and rv's that had been abandoned and were delapedated. Others with shanties attached. Appears there are no assocition guidelines for longtime campers. - Traveling3

Nice park and well maintained. There's a significant amount of road noise from the interstate. The tent sites look really nice - NPmoto

At check in I felt interrogated as to why I wanted to stay at the property etc and asked too many personal questions. Had a reservation. Usually we pull a camper but had a cabin this time, felt it would be more comfortable than a hotel room. Don't appreciate office staff grilling us to stay on their property. Place was nice enough. Cabin lacked several kitchen items making dinner preparation a little challenging. (measuring cups and spoons, dish towel, etc.) Road noise was the worst we ever experienced, truly loud all night long! Had to keep cabin windows closed because of this. Rough and narrow road on the way in. - MeetTheGriswolds

We stayed two nights .Campsite was very small. Couldn't have the awning out and build a campfire at the same time . The pool was not clean and one of our campers ended up with an eye infection. We didn't get any Wi-Fi or cable channels for TV. I would never Camp here again. - SARA Werth

We stayed fairly close to comfort station, and found it a busy traffic site. Well shaded, and good water, trash removal, had picnic tables and campfires are allowed. Most sites are pretty well graveled and reasonably easy to level a camper. They have added water view cabins, and most of the park provides for easy fishing access, and water view.
Friendly staff, well security patrolled. Really need to improve the sewer dump station. It would really make it a better park, if they installed sewer connections and upgraded the restroom and shower facilities. - Jacobsen

Stayed here due to the close proximity to the Muncie 70.3 race. Mostly seasonal campers. The daily RV sites have only a 30 amp outlet and water hookup. They are generally narrow, unlevel and scattered with trash. Can't figure why folks don't pick up after themselves because there are large trash cans every couple sites. The grass isn't mowed often. They have primitive tent site closer to the one bathroom/shower. Although the bathroom is old it was fairly clean. The staff is friendly and helpful although they allowed another RV to take the site I'd reserved because they were staying longer and they said our 40ft would fit on a site that was made for a 20ft. This isn't a place you would come to "camp" but if you're coming to race or boat/fish it fits the bill for an overnight or two. - cpahog

We have stayed at Grandpa's farm many times and each time it has been wonderful. This is a private park with some permanent residents, but you never feel like an outsider. The owners are always on site and working hard to make your stay perfect. It is a great place to relax and unwind. I know several folks have commented about the noise if you are by the road, but I have not experienced a problem with noise. Usually the AC is running and you don't notice anything. Had one brief low voltage situation, but it lasted less than 15 seconds. My power conditioner shut things down until the power came back up. Facilities are neat and clean and you always feel welcomed. - BuckeyeTravels

We have stayed there 3 times and the owners are pleasant people. Atmosphere is rural and wooded. Many children there and things to do for them, especially the heated pool. - johnmack

The bathrooms and showers were clean, but stalls were short so that when you stood you could see the rest of the bathroom and the showers were a tad small. Still, not bad. The pool was extremely clean and had many activities (Foosball, ping pong, etc.) for people to play at. Mostly seasonal campers, but great even for just overnight! Overall, a really great experience - oh, and the service here was great! Every time I have met a staff member here, I have been impressed with their quality of service. All in all, a great time. - crosscountrycollegian

Campground is mostly seasonal sites but has a couple of pull-throughs for overnighters. Our pull-through site was moderately unlevel front-to-back but good side-to-side. Trees blocked our satellite dish and this is probably the case for all of the campground's sites. Fair Verizon signal. No cable TV. No broadcast TV. Campground was clean and well-maintained and the staff were friendly and helpful. Interior roads were narrow with tight turns but with some care I was able to get through without scraping the sides of our motor home. - arpijay

Nice family oriented, family owned park nestled amongst the trees with plenty of space between sites. Quiet, well maintained, and super nice owners. Sites gravel and grass, mostly level. Road noise minimal. Amenities include pool, playground, micro-golf, dog run, pavilion, book exchange, and gift store. Didn't use bathrooms or showers or laundry. Local area brochures on display near office. Made reservation for one week, ended up staying for almost three. Close to historic downtown Richmond. Firehouse BBQ and Blues is a good place to stop in, across from the Model T Museum. - BandTGe

This out-of-the-way campground is way over-priced compared to most parks in America for what you receive. The price quoted was a weekly rate with discount. For that, we got a gravel site with concrete patio pull thru, picnic table and fire ring. What we did not get was any cable TV, low water pressure, and very poor wifi (owner hot spot) along with gravelly, uneven roads that were very tight for a 42 foot 5th wheel. Most of the people staying here were seasonal with only a handful of overnight sites available. This part of Ohio (near Dayton) has a lack of nice RV parks in convenient areas. - DIXIEDUALLY2013

Arrowhead Campground is exceptionally clean and beautiful. It is well-maintained by the owners who are personally involved in the upkeep and maintenance. I don't think anyone can find a campground as meticulous as Arrowhead. Our only negative as reflected by the rating I gave as being "Satisfactory" is that if you are looking for a one-night, in-and-out type of campground while traveling on I-70, this is not the place. We passed by other campgrounds which were much closer to the highway on our 10 mile journey to find Arrowhead. It's not even in the same county as the others, so don't be fooled by the New Paris designation for it's locale. However, I'm very glad we found it and stayed overnight. It's a superior, but pricey, campground for the casual traveler. - rvrose

The owner was very friendly and stayed open later than normal to meet us, as we had a problem on the road that delayed us. The road into the camp is quite twisty and narrow in spots. The roads in the camp are easy to navigate. The camp is very well maintained, lots of flower gardens and two ponds, one large one small that add to the beauty of this place. Plenty of benches and picnic tables around the pond. You are surrounded by farms and fields so it is very, very quiet.
Lots are gravel with a cement patio, a little on the narrow side and just long enough for our 37-foot RV, tow dolly and parking. There is no WiFi, our Verizon service was good and the hot-spot worked great. Did not use the bathrooms or laundry. We stayed one night, August 16, 2016, would have rated higher if there was WiFi and site was a little wider. We paid $30.00 with our Passport America discount. - BarrettsHappyTrails

very old, dated campground who seems to cater to the party crowd, if you are in to drinking, corn hole and parties then this is your place.. They advertise cable, wifi but don't have either. You can access a wifi hotspot at there lodge for a fee. Lake is an old quarry that is spring fed but they have done very little to make it accessible other than a small concrete dock. they advertise a pool and a small waterpark but don't state on their site that you have to pay a fee to use any of the slides at the pool. Sites are incredibly small(narrow). maybe 15' wide. utilities are not layed out well but appeared to be in working order. I had no issues other than sewer connection was old and difficult to connect to. They do offer scuba diving if you are already certified. All in All we will not be back. - cincyfirefighter

We stayed here a couple of nights and used the coupon on their website for 40% off the second night. Nice enough park and the natural spring is interesting. The sites are relatively level gravel and most are back to back, so if nobody is in the one behind you it is an easy pull through. OTA tv was good, but Verizon was a little spotty...two bars maybe and 3G most of the time. Utilities worked well. There are several groceries and a Walmart within 5 miles. We would stay again if we are in the area. - jtl2

Stayed 3 nights. Arrived, plugged electric in, the box immediately started smoking and I quickly unplugged with some slight damage to my plug. If I had walked away like I normally do, this would have bee BAD. Called desk and they sent 2 men out who replaced the 30 amp plug. They offered no apology, didn't even talk, but it was fixed. We found the place nice, restrooms clean but the showers are terrible! No place to put your clothes or towels, no seat, no shelving. You can't adjust the water temperature. You turn it on and you get what they have it set at and it's cold. We did have fun at the pool and beach but we probably won't come back because of the bad showers and it is crowded at the sites. You are packed in tight and you have to back in to about 4 feet from the camper behind you because of the positions of the outlets and water hookups. - Mike4625

Cornerstone is a routine favorite of ours. There are several sizes of lots, some shady, and some sun. Sites near the entrance are 50/30 amp full hookup and tend to have less shade. Sites behind the entrance are 30 amp only with water/electric only. Sites are gravel and most are level. The CG tends to fill up quickly on weekends and holidays, so you want to book in advance. Campground owners are warm and welcoming. They work hard to make camper's stays the best possible.
They do accept Passport America, but this can be hit and miss on pricing. We have gotten this price during the week as I recall. Showers and bathrooms are clean. They do deliver very good pizza to your site which is great with a crew of kids when setting up. The playground "gizmo" is the biggest one I have ever seen. Our kids get lost in it frequently. The pool is very nice when it is open.
The only real drawback is the road noise from I-70. The CG is located across the pond, but the pavement on the interstate there is concrete, and the trucks can be rather noisy.
The CG owners have addressed the flooding issues by tiling many of the camp sites this spring. I haven't been there in a good downpour, but it should help that issue tremendously.
Of all the CG's in East Central Indiana, this is our go-to campground. - scarter4work

We can concur with some of the comments from before. This campground seems to not have any real set rates. They say they are Passport America, but we have paid $22, $28 and this time $45 for the a 50amp, full hook up site on stops during the past year. The sites are well worth the earlier rates, but way over priced for narrow, sloping gravel pads with all hookups at the rear of the pad. Will opt for one of the other options within 10 miles on future semi annual trips. We were checked in by the owner each time who is very nice and helpful and each time assure the Passport rate was applied. There are 13 or 14, 50 amp full hookup sites, all the other are 30 amp with water only, under heavy tree cover. - Teacher's Pet

Very nice, well run park. There are not many full hookup sites, so if you need one make a reservation. Many sites are under heavy tree cover with only 4 or 5 being satellite friendly. This campground is a Christian Retreat Center in it's own description and has very nice facilities. There are meeting facilities and a large bunk house on the grounds. - Teacher's Pet
