1 Park near Straughn, Indiana
Jul 2015 - $16.00
I only rated it an 8 because they only have 30amp This is a Passport America Pk where we stayed overnight for $15.52 with tax. It's not a bad park, decent gravel sites with nicely cut grass, 30A, FHU, good WIFI, clean friendly park friendly staff. The park does have a lot of permanent sites in front section that you need to go through to get to the back where the 20 long pullthru sites are. The permanent section with lots of trees is like in most parks in the Midwest where they have a lot of people that leave their trailers here all summer or yr around & come for weekends etc during summer months. That area looked ok, clean. The row in the back for overnight & short term has only a few trees. Sites are long & decent width, fine for big rigs with slides, they are only 30A but are FHU clean grass was cut, no problem leveling out. We were on site #1 which was easy to level an end site. Out my front window I can see part of a small nice clean lake that had boat rentals also. Past the lake I can see the main road but don't hear it once inside. Don't know about the bathhouse as we always use our own. I was actually surprised that this is a nice park as the other day when I was looking for a place for tonight & on the some of the recent reviews didn't sound good can't figure out what they had to complain about it is a decent place for overnight or even a few nights & we would stay here again if in the area. - 2GermanAmericans

This is mainly a camp of permanent residents, with a row of spots for transients. The permanent resident part of the camp is sort of a shantytown. The transient spots are very close together, but all pull-through, and very long and straight. My site was not level side to side. The transient area is a big open field with no shade, several hundred yards off the interstate. The only good thing about that was the TV, Wi-Fi and cell signals are very strong. In fact, this park had the best Wi-Fi of any park I've been to recently, and its available throughout the campground. The noise from the highway is relentless, but somewhat muted except at night. The common areas are all dilapidated and dirty. The customer service was friendly and efficient. The water is vile and undrinkable. Not the greatest place, but reasonable value for an overnight with quick access on and off the freeway. Careful on entering the campground - you have to make a 180 turn right away. It's not that difficult, but it's not obvious and easy to drive by if you're not paying attention. - KAP99

We came into the campground for three days and have just extended to another 3. We read the reviews and almost didn't stop. This is a case where we would have missed a wonderful campground and a great site, by reading reviews from unhappy campers. When you come in you do pass by the permanent residents, but then you come to a beautiful clearing and this is where we short-time, or overnight parkers stay. We have a great space, Number 1, but any space would be good. The owner was delightful and tried to please everyone. The WIFI worked and we had excellent satellite reception. It cost only 15.00$ a night with PPA. We stepped out onto nice grass and the Highway was not a problem. It is close but didn't bother us at all. They have installed 3 new dryers. They didn't even charge more for the holiday weekend. We will definitely stay here again.
Thanks Don, and all of your staff. - Rea and Joy Edenfield
