6 RV Parks near Saint Paul, Indiana

I would not recommend this park for motorhomes longer than 38ft. They have placed boulders and light poles on the corners of the site making it difficult to maneuver in and out. Our pad had the sewer drain in the middle of the pad so I had to crawl under the coach to connect. Electric and water were on the wrong side. Very narrow gravel parking area because of the patio and hookups. Many residents work, so you have traffic noise early in the morning. Owners are slowly making improvements. - Westside

Very peaceful. Park is about 30 years old so was a tight fit for our 45 foot motorhome. Owners are working on upgrading the sites. Everyone was very friendly. Not much in the way of entertainment for kids unless they like to fish or bring their own things to do. Nice state parks within an hours drive. Would stay again. - David and Debbie

Thorntree Lake campground is a very peaceful, quiet place, with long pull throughs and gravel sites. Each site has a cement patio and fire ring. The owner, is very nice and made sure our stay was great. The property is well maintained and has a spring fed lake with big fish. We stayed there for several months this summer and will definitely return. - User2306

We stayed here on a holiday weekend so it was pretty full. THis campground does not have full hookups so have to take the value down slightly. Overall we had a nice time at this campground. Driving into the park seems a little daunting with a big rig but once past the office it was fine. Thye have a nice quarry for swimming and the river can be floated on kayacks or tubes. Wifi did not work and Cell service was marginal. We were able to get Satellite on site C2. We would return here again. - SPK

Overall very good stay. Staff was very helpful but seemed overwhelmed at times due to it being very busy. Strange layout for a GG. You need to be pretty good at maneuvering your rig for some spots. All roads were gravel and smooth. No paved spaces. A good portion of the roads are through wooded sections where some small branches will contact your rig. Be sure you have at least 30 feet of power cord and water hose available. Many sites have a single pole with 4 water and 4 elect connections in the center with four campers parked in a square around the utility pod. Not many 50 amp spaces avail. I think about half the spots were seasonal rigs that never move. It seems that 95% of the sites were families with kids but from what we observed people were friendly and just there to enjoy the outdoors, hang out with friends and swim in the quarry. Several families had dogs but all were leashed and everyone seemed to pick up after themselves. No trash cans. You must take bagged trash to dumpsters. This seems like a pain but it there weren't a bunch of bees and no overflowing trashcans with keeps the place looking nice. Overall a very good weekend. Reservations are a must. Oh, not CG fault but be aware that AT&T cellphone coverage is extremely week. - Goodcruisin

The campground had: WiFi (not working), dump, laundry, grocery, LP bottles, fire rings, firewood and river sites. Nice woman greeted us after hours. There was a trashy trailer upon entrance. We were upgraded to a riverfront site at no extra charge. As we drove to our site there were several campers grouped together and kept running a siren. With that said, we were very pleased with our campsite on the river - best atmosphere of any campground where we have stayed. We spent one night but wanted to stay longer. Little town was very quaint. We would stay there again. - Patti Dibble

PROS: $15/night, electric and water sites, dump station, river, playground, short walk to town. Cops patrol the site three times per night. The only highlight of the town was Not Just Popcorn, a global seller of 400+ flavored popcorns. CONS: High crime rate. Deliberately parked us next to a derelict RV, who had visitors wielding a sword and axes, cigarette smoke smell from the derelict RV, AC running 24x7. Smelled like garbage. I initially parked one space over from the derelict RV, to put some much needed space between us and the smell, the constantly running AC and the eyesore, but was told to move to the next site. We reluctantly complied. Edinburgh had many neglected buildings. Neighbor said there was drug activity about 200 ft from RV campsite. Had to clean up trash around our site. Many cigarette butts around the sites. No river walk. Bike path was only .1 miles...unusable. - tdrager

Older campground with narrow gravel sites, but 36' Class A with 4 slides fit easily. 50 amp power, water and sewer for $20 per night a great deal. Just off I-65 near Premium Outlet stores and several restaurants. Stayed overnight and would stay again. Cash or personal check only. - Travellin' Tina

First off if your rig is under 40 feet and you want shade and things for children to do then this is a great park. If you want satellite, want a space with out smoldering fires nearby, if you want the office staff to know what a big rig means, and some sun: then this is not the park for you.
The staff are students from a local college's hospitality program and unfortunately have no idea what the sites are like or what an RV is like. The first site they sent me to was unusable because of a tree limb in the middle of the site. The next site had no satellite service do to trees. I finally did find one that was long enough, no trees hanging down, and had full hook ups. Yes, there is a section in an open field but don't get off the road as that area is low and the ground is very soft and you may get stuck and I believe they are not full hook ups.
The number of smoldering fires with no one around is just amazing and if you have breathing issues you will not be happy. Some sites are full hook ups and some are not. We were here for a rally and I had come in early for the 4th. Just not what I look for in a campground so I would not stay here again. - peddy dick

Read the article in the FMCA magazine and came here for a tour of the Cummins plant. The article said to call to get a tour reservation but we never received a call back. Upon arrival, we were charged $2 per person to enter the facility! The money taker gave no directions to the office. A very nice gentleman on a golf cart asked us if we were lost and drove the wife to the office. (we had tried calling the office twice but no one answered) Once we found our spot, we went back to find out about the tours and were told that the FMCA magazine got the article wrong because they didn't arrange tours for less than 20 people. Oh well. The facility does look well maintained until you get to the campground. Sites are gravel with weeds growing in them and most of them are un level. It is heavily treed so satellite service won't happen. Power was good, water pressure good. For the price we paid, there were no sewer hookups. Roads are pretty narrow with speed bumps so be careful. Even going the posted 4mph speed limit the bumps shook the coach. - Mooney 201 Pilot

Once you get into CERAland, everything is very nice. More on that in a moment. A heads up: the entrance is on a county road that literally takes you through a corn field. Though the road is paved, it is only about 1-1/2 lanes wide, meaning that if you were to meet oncoming traffic, things could get very interesting. Fortunately, the road is not very busy so that shouldn't be much of a problem.
Now for the park itself. Pros: The sites are all back-ins, but they are very wide. Most of the sites are very shady. The campground feels very peaceful, about like many state parks we have visited. Unlike many state parks, there are a lot of activities you can participate in. Most of these cost an extra fee but there is lots to do here if just sitting in the woods is not enough for you. There was plenty of room on our site to park the car next to the motorhome without feeling cramped.
Cons: Most sites are back to back, and that means that the hookups tend to be all the way in the rear of the site. I needed an extra section of sewer hose to make the connection. As some others have noted, many of the employees seem to be teens working part time. I am glad to see teens working, but they don't always know how to be as helpful as they might be.
There is a $2.00 per person entry fee into the gate the first time you come in. Once you get checked in, your car pass will get you in and out of the gate without having to pay that $2.00 per person fee again. They don't guarantee wifi in the campground, only at certain hot spots (which they don't identify). I was able to connect at times via wifi, but most of the time I just relied on my cell phone; I had good coverage with Verizon here. - MFTDoc

As a destination campground, this is not it. As an overnight and on your way the next morning this works. The problem is finding it. Their address does not work on GPS maps. We first went about ten miles east of Edinburgh. A very nice woman finally got us headed in the right direction. Final destination was West of Edinburgh and actually on the original grounds of Camp Atterbury. Originally, Camp Atterbury spanned over 43,000 acres, but the facilities have been reduced to 30,000 acres with the rest overtaken by the Atterbury Job Corps, US Department of Labor, Hoosier Horse Park and Johnson County Parks Department. Once here the signage was not helpful-to-none-existent. Almost could not find the office. No sewer. Nice showers. Two RVs go on one long gravel site. We found one where we could stay connected for the night. I am pulling a kayak trailer, so we are 60' long. I took up almost the full length of the site, but there would have been room beside me for another RV. We will most likely not come back to this campground. - Mike from Bama

We stayed on a Saturday and Sunday night, by Sunday afternoon most all the campers left. It was quite and peaceful. Our site was level and had some shade, The park has installed all new electric boxes and water at each site, you now have a choice of 50 amp for $20 or 30 amp for $16 a night. we have stayed here a few times in the last year as its very close to home, there are lots of things to do at the park to keep you busy. The staff was friendly and helpful. - Psi500

I reviewed this park a few years ago but it is worth a re-review. They built a new shower house which is a vast improvement. The trees have grown up so there is some shade available. The swimming beach has been removed so no swimming is available. Still it is a county park carved out of an old army base. It is a decent place to camp if you are going to one of the many events at the park. Several seasonal campers plus some people temporarily living in tents. - bgb1066
