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. We camped at Deer Ridge Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Less than 5 miles from downtown Richmond, IN and its historic district. Blues historic sites, Model T Museum, and Railroad memorabilia. Kroger, Lowe's, Kohl's, Menard, CVS and everything else you'd need close by.

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. We camped at Deer Ridge Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

Lovely and quiet park. Nice pool. Mini golf. Small store. Beautiful setting. Tiny catch and release pond. Playground. Lots of long term folks from what we could tell. We camped at Deer Ridge Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice shopping nearby. The only thing to be wary of is they only have two pull thru sites. Still a great quiet overnight stop. We'd stay here again.

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. We camped at Deer Ridge Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Deer Ridge Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Deer Ridge Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Campground owners highly recommended the Wayne County Museum. We so enjoyed that museum founded by Julia Meek Gaar and highly recommend it ourselves. If you want to see everything, plan to spend several hours. We also enjoyed the Model T museum and Historic Downtown Richmond and the Gaar Mansion.

The rate reflects a Passport America discount but extra charges for a pull-through, 50 amp, pet, and taxes. This was a 1 night stop over for us. I wish we had just kept driving and pulled into a rest area. The lady at check-in was nice. The site was awful. It looked like it was in a ditch. There was a rising hill with a tree on one side and a wooden platform on the other. We eventually had to pull around and back into it. We had 50 amp and full hook-ups but we were dirty and muddy by the time we finally could settle in. We camped at Deer Ridge Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

A lovely park-like location. Lots of trees and birds. It was quiet too. They do have wi-fi, but only in the building where the office is. It's excellent connection there. The biggest negative for us was the site wasn't very level. But we like this place and would definitely stay there again. We camped at Deer Ridge Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

Relaxing and quiet RV park. Excellent utilities and roomy sites. Stay here every year. Owners always make the big difference. They are always friendly and helpful. Rate shown is monthly with average electric. We camped at Deer Ridge Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

The rate is with Passport America. We stayed just one night and there was only one other customer in the campground so it was very quiet. We had a full hook-up pull-thru site and the owner escorted us to the site. This was a very nice campground for a one night stay. We would return again.

Very quiet and located far from trains and vehicle traffic noise. We were able to get TV reception with our antennae. They have an animal theme miniature golf course. They also have a pool. We upgraded with Passport America to 50 amp and a pull through but felt it was worth the extra money. We would stay here again and recommend it to our friends.

The campground was clean, and visibly well maintained. The one-night discount sites are grassy back-ins on a hill near to the office. The sites are fairly level. We paid the Passport America rate far a Water/Electric/Sewer site. We camped at Deer Ridge Camping Resort in a Travel Trailer.

We camped here for one night, mid-week in a fifth wheel. There are mostly seasonal campers in this small park. At mid-week, there were very few people in the park. It is and old, but well-maintained. The shower facility was very clean, although outdated. The pool was beautiful, and looked very clean, although we did not use it. Our lot, was level but narrow The owner assured us that the adjacent lot would not be occupied; it wasn’t. The owner was very pleasant and helpful. We stayed here at a Passport America rate and would recommend it for a one night stay. We camped at Deer Ridge Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
