8 Parks near New Haven, Indiana
Aug 2013 - $20.00
This is a small county park with six electric & water sites. The sites are gravel with well maintained grass in between them. The interior road is paved. There is no dump station. The electric stations have 30A and 50A receptacles, but the 50A connections are 230 Volts. Be careful not to plug into the 50A sockets! There are two each M/F showers stalls and restrooms in a separate building. They are clean, but dark and old. Verizon cell service and DirecTV is easily accessible. There is a lot of traffic on the near-by railroad tracks, both day and night. The camp host wanted the $20/day fee in cash. If you are visiting Woodburn or the surrounding area while RVing, this is the only campground around. For a couple of days, it’s OK. - rverkw

Nice Community Park with a few (6) RV sites. The only drawback is train noise. Weekly rate is $80. - ZzyzxCA

We stopped here to get off the road and were pleasantly surprised. This municipally owned/run park is located next to the coliseum in Fort Wayne. Yet, it has trees and is next to the river, and feels like you aren't really downtown. The camp host was fabulous and welcoming. Our site was level, and had electricity and water. There is a dump station, which we used, across the road from the campground. Surprise of all surprises, you can take a 5 minute walk to Johnny Appleseed's grave site located between the campground and the coliseum. - ShoreXplorers

This is a small state park. Only water and electricity at the camp site. Dump station near the bathrooms. No complaints. It's a perfectly fine RV park. My main concern is always the bathrooms and since they were clean, I am a happy camper. - Jolacabana

Very clean, friendly host check in, shady, mostly poor satellite reception, good OTA TV, paved roads, gravel sites, good fitness opportunities, well worth the price. - Hhtjr

We stayed at this camp expecting more than what we got. The Wi-Fi does not work unless you are close to the main office. Staff is friendly. The place is good for small travel trailer and fifth wheel. We had difficulties with ours. The bathrooms have a long way to go; because of this we did not use them. We stayed for a week and during weekdays was quiet but the weekend nights were loud. Lots of tree but many with low clearance for big fifth wheel like ours. It has what appears to be a man-made lake which is used by families with kids a lot specially during the weekends. Several stationary travel trailers that are very old. Won't stay again here. - sallon

We checked into the park on June 29. About 2 hrs. after our arrival a severe thunderstorm hit. It knocked out electricity & water for the next 4 days.The storm also broke off trees & limbs. It was warm & fortunately we had a generator & water in our tank. The lack of water was due to the fact they had their own wells & had to use a pump. Power came back on on Tue. July 3rd. All was well for 2 days & 1 of our AC stopped working. I called the office to have them check the plug at our site as everything worked fine on the generator. The manager of the park came out checked the plug & said there was something wrong, but he wasn't sure what. He would call an electrician to check it out. No one ever showed up. During this time the temperatures were over 100 for 4 days. No one from the park ever checked on people in the park to see if they were alright or if they could be of any help. All the park employees did was to clean up the trees. We had severe storm warnings almost everyday & during one of them they locked the office & would not let anyone in to get out of the bad weather. Kids were in the lake & no one in the park made them get out even though we were were having lightning & thunder. The reason we did not leave before our stay was over is because they had told us absolutely no refunds. We payed the same price even though we didn't have power or water for most of 4 days & even thought our power was not adequate to run our motorhome after the power was restored. The summer residence of the park were very friendly & helped each other as well as the visitors. I would never stay at this park again. - goldie18

This is an older seasonal campground with a new, all pull through transient section. A scary, narrow, one lane bridge is at the entrance followed by narrow, winding roads. In fairness, however, roads were intimidating but we had no issues with a 35' motorhome and tow. Sites are long, wooded but with a window through the trees for satellite reception. Transient sites are literally in the woods - more like a state park than a commercial campground. No security lighting. Seasonal areas are mostly older units and is obviously party city but noise does not penetrate much to transient area. Power excellent when we stayed in record heat, water pressure barely adequate (consistent 30-35#). This was an OK stop in an area of limited choices. We have been in worse. - joez

The campground was not for large RV's, there are many narrow, windy and dirt roads. The narrow one lane sagging bridge was rather scary to cross. The staff was friendly. - Melissa3225

Let's start with the positive. It is not an ill maintained campground. The seasonals and permanents maintianed their sites well and are a social lot. OK, now the not so positive. The road in is poor condition; go slow! The bridge over the creek seems to be able to handle a sizeable load, but is narrow, so be careful. The gate is only half opened, so getting a long rig in requires care. And this is before you get to the uneven, rutted campsites, where the power poles are weirdly located. The lake is an old quarry that is not very inviting. The facilities are so far from where they put overnighters that they may as well not exist. Wi-fi and cell signal- ATT or Verizon-- are not out in the boonies where we were located. And why put a guest who reserves for a couple of days on the worst site available? But mostly, the place is an OK stopover if you are visiting the Auburn Museum. Except the price for this campground is ridiculous. - Windjammer

Very nice place. Management was friendly. Seasonal campers were very nice. Lots of activities, you won't be bored. 3 nice fishing lakes. Management said they are installing a big waterslide. - MrTonyD

Stayed here several days to tour several Museums. This park has seen better days but is easy to get to, good pull-through graveled and level sites. Person on duty was helpful and brought receipt to us within an hour. Not much for shade however and being August, the RV didn't cool down much. OK for few days or longer if don't need the shade, just behind the campground are 5 fabulous museums: National Military History, Auto Museum, the Early Ford V-8 Museum, and within them, the Horse drawn Apparatus Museum and a collection of many wild animal "Trophies" to tour and they are reasonably priced. Downtown Auburn has Auburn Cord Duesenburg Auto and the National Auto and Truck Museum. Recommend this town for a day stop if traveling through and this campground due to it's close proximity of them. - openrange

This is a no frills RV park but it is convenient to I-69 and good for an overnight stay. We've stayed here twice & both times, it was a "self serve" check-in. Pick a site, fill out the registration form & deposit it with cash or your credit card information in the box. There is no Wifi in the park. The washrooms & showers are clean. We did not use the laundry facilities. Will stay here again for convenience only. - 69636

This park is less and less each year that we stop.
This year some of the washrooms and showers were "out of order".
You have to check yourself in and leave the envelope......with your credit card number available.
Almost past the point of being convenient. - Tworetired

Gravel roads and sites, very level. No patio but a picnic table and fire ring. The staff and management were very nice and helpful. The park in along the side of the Lake. There were a lot of permanent residents with older units. Great place for fishing and boating. Watch the goose poop by the lake. The laundry had only 1 washer and 1 dryer that have seen better days. - esta34950

Rate is reflective of monthly rate. We will not stay here again. Owners are nice but overwhelmed by what it takes to maintain a campground. Rules are not enforced. Bathrooms were dirty, and when I mean dirty, I mean excrement smeared on walls. Playground was same way. Parents let children run loose and teenagers think it is fun to knock on your camper door at midnight and run away. Wife is very spotty and costs extra. All of this was brought to the owners attention and the response was was shrugged shoulders and the cleaning lady quit. - Luvbugz

They are changing this campground around. They are in process of building a new store, business center. Nice and friendly people. Sites are close, they are cleaning the park up, installing new sewer system. Seems like lots of changing for the better. I would come back. Yes, there are seasonal campers, but all were nice that we ran into. - MrTonyD

Review is based on one overnight stay. CTL has many things available that may make your stay deserve a higher rating. Pull through site W/E/S, which all worked well. Dirt/gravel site was not level and barely long enough for 28' motorhome and toad. Be prepared to travel some county roads as this is off the beaten path. Strong WiFi signal, but "internet is down" and apparently has been since 2014. (Looking at the brochure, WiFi is NOT mentioned.) CTL actually seems like a nice place for longer term/seasonal campers. I am giving it a lower rating based on an overnight stay. - BounderPounder

Country setting, mostly local families with children. Lots of seasonal campers. Gravel roads and uneven sites. We had a pretty good back-in with a soybean field behind us. OK area for the dogs but lots of mosquitos down near the water. They didn't bother us too much where we were parked. This was just a pass through stop for a few nights while traveling. We did enjoy a few rounds of golf in the area. Wi-Fi and hook ups were fine. - gardener

We stayed here twice during the winter season in the full-hookup pull through sites. Water during the winter is located below ground (to prevent freezing) and is a bit of a reach. The campground was very quiet and was empty except one other unit and a number of long-term residents. The office was closed most of the time, although our interactions with staff were all very positive.
No issues with our 90 lb. dog (lab-mix), although they did take a look at him.
Both sites we were in were not level (front-to-back or side-to-side), but with the campground largely empty, we enjoyed great views of the lake from our fifth-wheel.
In addition to long-term residents (most of whom were located away from us), there are many seasonal trailers. I imagine Camp Timber Lake would be quite busy on summer weekends.
Although we were only passing through and we had cold weather, we liked the location so much that we changed our plans and stopped here again on our way back home. - Annie and Beast

Very lovely park. Amenities are phenomenal. Too many to list but all are listed are their website. Some of the staff there could use a lesson in manners, and that is why I am giving them a 6 rating. As a resort though I would give it a 9, just stay clear of the staff and you will have a pleasant time. - mnchope
