Everything in "damonbeals" review is still accurate. Things that did stand out were the clean restrooms and the historic village which were nice. The turnarounds at the end of each loop were very tight, be aware of this if you have maybe something over 27 ft. The gate does close at 10 PM but the office personnel stops taking in new arrivals at 9 PM. We called as we were going to be maybe 10 minutes after 9 PM and they were super accommodating and told us not to worry.
Many of the fellow travel trailers were mostly showing some age but things were very quiet during the day and at night. We were just passing through so were only here an evening and into the lunch hour.
Yes we would stay here again. - Fizbin

This park is a hidden gem. It's run by the Vigo County Park department, so it's run like a park and not a campground. It has 53 sites for RVs and almost all of them are on the lake; you can fish from your campsite. All sites are in trees and shade. Many sites would be difficult in a large motor home, but we had no issues. Park does not take credit cards at this time, we had to find a ATM to pay with cash. The park is locked after 10 PM; they close the gate. They do have someone at the gatehouse if you have a emergency or will returning late. The park is quiet and a great place to relax. The only noise issue is the occasional train, which is about 3/4 of a mile away. The park also has a Pioneer Village, with a working mill and many log homes and buildings and a covered bridge. They are only open to the public on the 3rd weekend of the month. Restrooms are newer and modern and clean. We plan on returning in the future. - damonbeals

This is an unrestricted county park so the trailers/vehicles were a lot older and vintage, lets say. The turnarounds at the end of each loop were pretty tight and we are in a 21' TT. We just stopped there the night so could not delve into the amenities but the staff was nice. - Fizbin

This is a county park with a lot of beautiful trees. Unfortunately the paved roads are very narrow with sharp turns. We drive a 34 foot motorhome and pull a car behind us. While trying to find a spot we had to unhook our car from the tow dolly to navigate a turn. When we called to make a reservation we asked if they had full hookup (water, electric and sewer). When we got there we were told no sewer, just a dump site. We decided to deal with it. We ended up not staying as the electric and water hook ups were about 100 feet apart and we could hook up to one but not the other. For us it was a very poor layout. - esta34950

We stayed three nights. Very small spaces, had to go out and move my truck for they could come in with a motor home. Really not a place to park tow truck. Lots are really close together a picnic table can fit in between. Could never get cable to work. WIFI worked for me but not wife's computer. Couldn't put dish up a lot of trees, trees not bad really. The people where nice that checked us, when they finally got to the desk, we arrived at three pm. It took for ever to get checked in. If I was to stay another three nights I'D find another place, I would stay one night if I had to. 1st KOA I stayed in and they do want to nickel and dime you. My guests drove in, picked us up and the owner didn't say any thing, but the owner didn't see it, either. - JustDon

Before I start the review please note: There is a major road construction in progress in the area. DO NOT FOLLOW OR RELY ON YOUR GPS!
What follows are the correct directions to the park as of Sunday, May 14, 2016: From EB or WB I-70 take exit 11 which is State Rt 46. Go SOUTH on SR 46 for 1.1-miles (as measured with my odometer). Turn left. This is Tucker Road although it is NOT marked as such. You will see orange road construction signs that have KOA and directional arrows on them. Tucker Road looks like a frontage road to SR 46. You will now be going back north on Tucker. After about 1/2 mile you'll come to a stop sign. This is Moyer Road. You should see another small sign pointing straight ahead to the KOA. Keep going straight on Tucker. After another 1/2 mile you'll enter a curve to the right and see an Indiana DOT facility on your right. Keep going straight..no turns. When you pass the DOT yard you're now on Sony Drive (again, no street signs). The KOA is at the end of Sony Drive. Remember, no turns....keep going straight.
If you make a reservation the KOA staff will email directions to you. As I noted the directions I provided are accurate as of 5/15/16 and it didn't look to me like the project was moving forward with any kind of speed. KOA staff mentioned that the entire project was due to be complete 4-YEARS AGO!
As for the park itself...very nice. Mostly shaded (satellite users will have difficulty getting a signal. We were in site 2 and were able to lock onto 2 of 3 satellites. Level gravel pads with grass "patios". Interior roads are easily navigable in big rigs (we have 40' MH plus Jeep SUV...60' overall). Park is clean and laid out nicely. We checked in with Robin who was extremely helpful. Park has a small café with usual fare AND 24-flavors of soft serve ice cream. All sites are 30/50-amp, good water pressure and cable TV at most sites. Small dog run. We would stay here again. - rk911

Wifi works well. Nice dog walk area but they had a lot of rain the day & night before our arrival and the park was very wet. Staff are very friendly and escort you to your site. Has a nice café that offers breakfast & supper. There is major highway construction on I-70 and it's a bit tricky finding the road to the park. Do NOT follow your GPS. - 69636

Not as easy to get to from I-70 due to major road changes that impacted their entrance. Sites are gravel with concrete patios and fire ring. About the only option in the Terre Haute area for large motorhomes. The staff was friendly and are doing upgrades to the sites. Main issue was the excessive price for the a small gravel site in our opinion. Others may not agree. - dfc
