1 Park near Straughn, Indiana
Jun 2015 - $16.00
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

This is the second time we have stayed at this park. It is very close to the interstate and really ideal for an overnight stay. It is probably 80 to 90% permanent residents but the sites are clean and well maintained. These sites are mostly wooded, while the transient sites are out in the open. The roads and pull-thru sites are gravel but level with convenient hookups. These sites were a little narrow; we had no problem getting our slides out but doubt if we would have had room for the awning. The staff is friendly and helpful. We didn't use the restrooms but I did look in and they seemed fine. There is a nice lake for fishing. - SandyA
