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

This camp is very friendly! The owners are great, lots of events for my young kids (including a lake to swim in). Most of the campground (80%-90%) are seasonal, but lots of space for us weekenders too. We will be going again! - roofamily

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

Went with grand children to swim and have fun, mainly swim. the lake was scummy around edge of beach area and the beach was nothing but duck crap. You could not walk on beach or two or more feet in water with out duck crap. Could not swim. Told them but nothing was done. Then there was duck crap in camping area. The one set of rest rooms were unsafe. Floors buckled up and fell in along with the toilet. the other set was filthy, toilets dirty and full of body waste, showers dirty and moldy. Very unsatisfied.
In the park was a wonderful playground. The camping site was flat enough that we didn't have to level it and was by playground. The attendants were old and very nice. - barbnted

We stayed here for 3 nights. We were passing through and needed a place to stay for a few days. It was a cheap place with Passport America. The park staff is nice, the seasonal residents are very friendly. The highway noise was loud day and night! The place was very active on the weekend but quiet times were observed. WiFi was very good. TV antenna reception was good. The transient sites were out in an open field with a little lake. No picnic table or fire ring. We would stay here again if passing through the area because it was cheap and the park was easy to navigate. - RunAroundSue

This campground is for homesteaders. Front of campground is a lot to be desired. Filled with dilapidated travel trailers, fifth wheels, motorhomes which have been built on to. Once you drive through the wooded area you come to an open field that has no shade, and homesteaders have taken over the spaces by the woods and pond. Transients have the middle strip to set up and hope the cramped site is large enough for your slide outs. Homesteaders have full run of this park, rules only apply to transient guests. No picnic table, no fire ring (took one from an empty site). The bathhouse is absolutely filthy, with rotted floors. Have to have water filters due to horrible water. DO NOT use the washers, ruined an entire load of white clothes to their rusty water. Only 30 amp service, no picnic tables or fire rings. Have some activities in weekends but if you're not one of the homesteaders you're really not welcomed. This campground is almost like it's own little compound, you're welcome to come for a night or two, but that's it. A woman sits on her deck at the front of the campground and waves to everyone but refuses to acknowledge you when she's riding through the campground on her golf cart. They do accept Passport America and Good Sam. The price would have been o.k. until I lost $75 worth of white clothes due to their rusty water! I wouldn't recommend this campground to anyone. - Dream living

We were on our way home from a lengthy vacation and needed one night stay to get us home. Called as we were getting gas and they happily had room for 2 units. As it turned out, we were just a couple miles away, so no reservations and we were there in minutes. Checking in was quick and efficient as we are KOA members. Owners are super nice. It was dark and the escort to the site is always appreciated. We had a very nice site by the lake (didn't know that until daylight). We did not hear any road noise from the interstate even though the campground was very close to it. That was a convenience to us as we were just passing through. We would stay here again when traveling. - msvacation

This park is in a very picturesque rural location, although a little too close to interstate road noise. The interior sites are spacious and very nice with good utitlity service. - Altoflyfisher

Even with no satellite reception, this placed rocked. The owner was always around if you had a question and was a great guy. Nice pool, excellent wifi and cable. Pool nice. Quiet park. Would stay again. - kimble

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 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

Have stayed here several times visiting friends in area. Will stay here again any time in area. Very nice people, small but like the layout. Not a fancy place but was always here either at just the end of winter or early to mid fall so either trees are not yet filled out or void of leaves. During height of summer, with pool weather, fully leafed out trees would be very nice. Only thing some won't like is that park is right next to a fairly heavy traveled road so noisy. - alh

We were in a pull thru site but would have preferred back in site in a grassy area with fewer trees. One lane road in and out of park could be a problem if meeting an oncoming vehicle. Some permanent sites but they are well maintained. Park is well maintained, lots of things to do and restrooms are very very clean. Passport rate is cash only. - Mustcamp

Since we were using Passport America we had to use a back in and had to unhook our tow. The site was a little unlevel and would have been a mess if it had rained, there would have been a lot of mud. The owners were very nice and helpful, plenty of trees and several wood carvings that are beautiful. It wasn't too far off the road so it was fine for overnight. The wifi worked in their barn (rec room) and was fine. - SGF

We enjoyed camping here so much we extended our stay. The campsites are relatively spacious and the campground has lots of trees. We were here in early June, and the fields and trees surrounding the campground were filled with fireflies at night; it was lovely. The campground owners are very friendly and accommodating. In addition to providing fire rings and picnic tables with care to level the table, they also recommended events and museums in Richmond which were delightful. We travel with two dogs, and the campground is very pet friendly and has a small fenced dog run for dogs to be off-leash. The pool looks inviting and clean, and although it was too cold for us Floridians to swim, others were enjoying the pool. The campground is conveniently located just off I-70, but there is no highway noise in the campground. - User3725

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

Staff very friendly. Access for big rigs not so friendly but they help you get to and in your site. Sites are very well manicured with pretty flowers and shrubs....but very tight. Campground is very visually appealing with very pretty lakes. Dumpsters well away from everyone near the entrance. Pool is well maintained and all very pretty. Lots of kids. WIFI None, Cable None, TV Reception almost none. VERIZON, AT&T, SPRINT cell phone service very sketchy, albeit sprint hot spot worked. We came here to visit points of interest in nearby Dayton (about an hour away). We stayed in a 40 foot motor-home. Passport America rate $27. Passport America site says P.A. discount is valid Sunday through Thursday. Not true. Arrived Sunday and paid full rate for Sunday, then PA rate for Monday. - Denny Pike

My wife and I stayed here during the week, before the weekend rush. Was unbelievably peaceful and quiet. Very remote location. We'll go back for that reason alone(We had previously stayed at the KOA in nearby Richmond, which is about 500 feet from I-70. Big rigs all night =big mistake). But on top of the tranquility, the place is well run, owners are so helpful and friendly, and were very willing to help us with advice about local things to see and do. Having said that, the CG has dozens and dozens of seasonal spots, which made for a completely different feeling when those began to fill up Friday evening. Wasn't quite as peaceful, but not too bad. Didn't fish myself, but people are regularly catching 30+ pound catfish in the lake. Area nearby is well known for antique shops, plus we took a very interesting tour of the KitchenAid factory, the only place in the world that makes the stand mixers. Factory is about 12-15 miles from CG. Highly recommended. - VacuumTubeAmpMan

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

I really enjoyed our stay and will definitely return again. The sites in the middle are a bit on the smaller side in width, but had plenty of room for the fire pit, picnic table, and our corn hole boards in front of the camper. The quarry is very nice to swim in, and there is also a pool. There are two playgrounds for the little ones, and the park is very bicycle/scooter friendly. We rode the camp shuttle, which is a stretched golf cart with two trailers with bench seats down each side. The store seemed to have a lot to choose from, and was reasonably priced. - 26River

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
