Though park is on the highway, it is large enough and the sites were far enough from the highway to be mostly quiet. Large, flat sites. Lots of lawn to play ball with the dog. Lady running check in very helpful - opened a normally closed, more direct exit for us the next morning so I wouldn't have to maneuver some tight corners getting out. We camped at New Lisbon Family Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Entrance is a severe (180 degrees) turn that was barely negotiated in our 41' mh with 24' trailer. If you travel shorter, you should have little problems getting in. Next time, I will call ahead as we arrive and have them open a normally closed exit that gives a straight shot to the sites.

Just stopped here for a quick overnight on our way back home. Lots of seasonals here, but wasn't populated on a cold Monday night. We got escorted back to our pull through, a nice bonus.Place seems decent. We camped at New Lisbon Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Personnel are very nice; and most of the grounds are kept up nicely also. However, it appears that this CG has a problem with an unusual number of dead and dying trees, perhaps due to a bug infestation. By the amount of stacked firewood at permanent sites, It would appear that management is making every effort to keep up with maintenance. However, even to access the open field sites where it is safe, one must travel through the wooded section, which contains numerous dead trees obviously ready to fall. We saw 3 crushed units that had been destroyed by fallen trees. Another worry I would have is that children riding their bikes, etc. through this area could be in danger. This would be an ideal CG if not for this problem. We camped at New Lisbon Family Campground in a Motorhome.

Very nice, well maintained park conveniently located just off I-70. 30amp, FHU, pull-through site with an escort to the site. 51 OTA TV signals, good WIFI. About the only thing lacking would be 50 amp service since the weather was hot and we had to be judicious with our power requirements. Regarding other reviewer's comments about the trees, the park became a victim of the "ash borer" which did quite a bit of damage to the trees and many had to be (and are still being) removed. Staff very friendly and helpful. Since the park is next to the highway some folks would probably not care for the noise. We would definitely return if in the area. We camped at New Lisbon Family Campground in a Motorhome.

We made reservations ahead for a shady site. We were escorted to a site which we backed into. Once we had a chance to get out of the vehicle and look around we were horrified. Trash on the ground. Unkept sites all around. Trailers and rv's that had been abandoned and were delapedated. Others with shanties attached. Appears there are no assocition guidelines for longtime campers. We camped at New Lisbon Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Very friendly and helpful. Very nice community building and cabins are nice for overnight. Had graduation open house there and they were very helpful. They take Good Sam and Passport America. Their motto come as customers and leave as friends. They live up to that. We camped at New Lisbon Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

many seasonal RV spots - most well kept - overnight spots are out in open with level easy pull through. Friendly and helpful hosts. road to sites is past older rigs and in the woods - trees are well trimmed - which is important for a tall rig. We would return again.

We stayed for 2 nights in the off season when we were just traveling through. There are a lot of bad reviews for this campground but they are mostly unfounded. I did not see the restrooms however, I only ever use my own! That is why I HAVE a camper! But to comment on the people here, it is a friendly place. The owners are very nice and went out of their way to help us. There are mostly long term residents here/stationary campers, but that never bothers me. We have stayed at a lot of campgrounds such as this and they are usually a good value. The people here I found to be nice and my kids played with their kids. The bad reviewers commenting on the people are just snobs. They want a 4-star RV resort without the price. Also, the road noise is not that bad.

Went with grand children to swim and have fun, mainly swim. the lake was scummy around edge of beach area and the beach was nothing but duck crap. You could not walk on beach or two or more feet in water with out duck crap. Could not swim. Told them but nothing was done. Then there was duck crap in camping area. The one set of rest rooms were unsafe. Floors buckled up and fell in along with the toilet. the other set was filthy, toilets dirty and full of body waste, showers dirty and moldy. Very unsatisfied.

In the park was a wonderful playground. The camping site was flat enough that we didn't have to level it and was by playground. The attendants were old and very nice. We camped at New Lisbon Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Stayed here 2 nights in order to handle some business in Richmond. IN. The person checking us in was very friendly and helpful. Used the laundry which was very clean. Many seasonal campers here. Not really a destination campground , but excellent if you're looking for a site close to the interstate and not overpriced. It is close to the interstate, so if you are easily bothered by road noise, maybe not the best choice for you. We camped at New Lisbon Family Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for 3 nights. We were passing through and needed a place to stay for a few days. It was a cheap place with Passport America. The park staff is nice, the seasonal residents are very friendly. The highway noise was loud day and night! The place was very active on the weekend but quiet times were observed. WiFi was very good. TV antenna reception was good. The transient sites were out in an open field with a little lake. No picnic table or fire ring. We would stay here again if passing through the area because it was cheap and the park was easy to navigate. We camped at New Lisbon Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This campground is for homesteaders. Front of campground is a lot to be desired. Filled with dilapidated travel trailers, fifth wheels, motorhomes which have been built on to. Once you drive through the wooded area you come to an open field that has no shade, and homesteaders have taken over the spaces by the woods and pond. Transients have the middle strip to set up and hope the cramped site is large enough for your slide outs. Homesteaders have full run of this park, rules only apply to transient guests. No picnic table, no fire ring (took one from an empty site). The bathhouse is absolutely filthy, with rotted floors. Have to have water filters due to horrible water. DO NOT use the washers, ruined an entire load of white clothes to their rusty water. Only 30 amp service, no picnic tables or fire rings. Have some activities in weekends but if you're not one of the homesteaders you're really not welcomed. This campground is almost like it's own little compound, you're welcome to come for a night or two, but that's it. A woman sits on her deck at the front of the campground and waves to everyone but refuses to acknowledge you when she's riding through the campground on her golf cart. They do accept Passport America and Good Sam. The price would have been o.k. until I lost $75 worth of white clothes due to their rusty water! I wouldn't recommend this campground to anyone. We camped at New Lisbon Family Campground in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at New Lisbon Family Campground in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at New Lisbon Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

I wouldn't recommend staying more than a night at this CG, but if you can't avoid it and are looking for something to do, there is a very nice Wright Brothers museum about ten miles down the road, across the interstate.

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. We camped at New Lisbon Family Campground in a Motorhome.
