narrow roads, great pool. Nice café, didn't use. gravel site and water hook up on opposite side of rv, need an extra long hose. Most folks are long termers that work in area. Nice dog park. - kimble

Very nice park! It looked like they have lots of activities for children. The park is nicely landscaped and kept. Our site was level and easy in and out with a 40-foot coach towing. We had a beautiful site with a large patio, patio table, bench, and fire ring. - schoolsout2

KOA parks are always expensive, but this was ridiculous... location and lack of other park options probably contributed to the exorbitant rate. The spaces were close, and we were in a site where the water hookup was on the DOOR side of the RV so I had to run the hose under the RV to hook up. Other utilities were on the proper side. Roads were tight but navigable... tag axle vehicles might have a problem getting to some sites. Cable was adequate but reception was fuzzy on some stations. Location and lack of options probably contributed to the exorbitant rate. - Gator67

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

After the prime season, but still a nice time to visit this park. We stayed on "B" loop which the fellow at the office said was the quieter area. We found a 50A site and there was no extra charge for it at this Thousand Trails campground. We are family courtesy card holders, so there was no additional charge for us to use this campground.
The staff was very helpful - calling us on the day we were to arrive to let us know that there were construction and detour signs on the route that we would be taking to get to the campground, but that the road closure occurred after where we would make our turn so no need to worry about taking a detour.
The B loop was VERY quiet if our stay was any indication. We were there on a Wednesday-Friday. For our 43' motorhome, some of the turns were tight so it was a good idea to disconnect before heading to the sites.
The campground was very large with lots of lakes around it. We would definitely return to this campground. - pattic777

This is a very nice park that has large lots. The park staff is extremely helpful and friendly. Very family friendly, speed limit is 5 mph and enforced. Grounds are well kept and clean. There are a number of permanent sites which makes it harder for those who only want to stay a few days or weeks. There is a playground, putt putt golf, and a pool. Wi-Fi is only available close to office, adult club house and the pool. Our cell service with AT&T was nonexistent. We will return. - MAT-DAT

This is an Encore park, which has stopped giving the Passport America discounts. They did give us a Good Sam discount because we come every year for a week or 2. The roads are gravel, the spots are gravel and mostly level. A couple spots have drainage issues, but they are easy to pick out. This year we noticed the bath houses are not being kept clean. They look clean, but have a bad smell which cleaning with clorox or pine sol would solve. They are also much used and in need of an update. The staff is friendly and helpful. During the week it is quiet, but on the weekends parents let the kids holler and run around until very late at night. The lakes can be used for fishing, not swimming. They have a pool and clubhouse for activities. - esta34950

Scenic park in rural setting with lots of trees. The hosts were a hoot, and very helpful. The condition of the park is immaculate. The sites are situated well - the park was full when I was there, and everyone seemed to have a fair degree of privacy. Verizon barely registers from time to time, but with an antenna works ok. There is no wifi and no other carriers here. The road around the park is great for bikeriding. - KAP99

This is a pretty campground. We had reservations for the one night we stayed but considering how empty it was we didn't need them. We had a nice pull through site close enough to a water faucet to fill our tank from our site. Lots of nice trees and grass. Our site was long and level. We would stay here again. - PegL

Very nice County park. Friendly staff, clean, wooded and open sites, plenty of room between sites, quiet. Next to a lake and pet friendly. Would rate it higher, but electric only at sites, some water spigots but only 1 per 4 sites. Nice double sewer dump. A hidden gem. - Jamboee89

Excellent campground, the sites are very large in some of the sections, if you get back in the C section you can be half way close to the water, we generally stay out in the B section which gives us alot of room for the kids to play. Very quiet, we can't camp here enough. - SharpFamily

Very nice county park. Weekly and monthly rates are available. Boat ramp and fishing on the lake and swimming allowed in the coves. Sites are very large with fire rings and picnic tables. Some interior roads are paved. Gate house staffed from early morning to late evening. A small restaurant is nearby with good food. Marshall, IL is not far for additional needs. - stachwe

We have stayed here many times since I was a kid. This is a great park. The pool is very clean although it is on the other side of the campground so you have to drive there. The sites are mostly level but some need a little tweaking. We stayed in site 20 and our 32' RV fit in the spot without much difficulty. There are some areas of the campground where water is some distance away. I would recommend a few more water hydrants in the campground. We had a great time and will definitely be back in the fall. - perry7x75

Very clean and quiet campsite. School is resuming this week, so there were mostly adults camping. Our site was level and graveled. Fire ring was clean and worked very well. Camp store was closed when we arrived on Sunday evening, but the attendant on duty directed us to Jasonville, where we were able to purchase a few supplies and fire wood. Did not have any issues concerning the campground or park. Rates are very reasonable. - electrician538

Although Shakamak is a beautiful state park, we had a couple of issues during our stay over the Labor Day weekend. The sites are not tent friendly. We had trouble staking our tents down due to the concrete/gravel surface and lack of grassy area in the site. Also the DNR is not effective at enforcing the quiet hours. We had people down the road partying very loudly till after 1:00 AM. The pool/camp-store is on the opposite side of the park so we had to drive there. We did appreciate the delivery of wood to the site. The shower house was very clean. We would possibly camp here again but would inquire about the site before reserving it to make sure it is tent friendly. - jennydep

Washrooms are filthy and badly in need of maintenance, garbage is overflowing in dumpster, no wifi, no office on site (down the street one block). My wife went to use the laundry room to find only the name on the door should have read "Storage Room".
Pricing is the same as higher end campgrounds. We were not treated as paying customers.
The owner decided to start grading the roads around our trailer after 5:00PM while we were having our dinner-creating a lot of dust and noise. This went on for over an hour, until I finally decided to ask them how much longer they would be?
The operator of the small loader was extremely aggressive, giving both my wife and I the 'finger', cursing and threatening to put a pile of rocks in front of our truck so we could not move. We decided to leave shortly thereafter fearing even though it was dark and had to drive nearly all night to our next destination. To say the least, it was a horrible experience.
FORGET THIS CAMPGROUND..It's the worst campground we have ever stayed at, out of several hundred! I would not recommend to anybody. - John Hester

50Amp was available at two sites when we visited and the owner is installing additional 50A pedestals. (The entire campground is, however, for sale) This is a nice clean, secure, full hookup place to spend a few days. No big amenities, but the price is right. - Little Black Dog

This campground is packed full in October during the Covered Bridge Festival, but we stayed in July and just about had the place to ourselves. The sites are level grass, the grounds are well maintained, the owners are friendly, and the town in within walking distance. We had a strong cell signal and clear satellite access. The $14 nightly rate is an average based on $100 per week. Credit cards are not accepted. Rockville is located in Parke County which is called the Covered Bridge Capital of the World. There five different color coded routes that go by or through some 30 bridges out in the countryside. In nearby Dana there is a state historic site dedicated to Ernie Pyle, the WWII correspondent. The museum exhibits are well worth the nominal admission fee. - Carol Butler

We stayed one night while touring the covered bridges in Parker County, Indiana. Site 30 was a pull through and we had no neighbors. Many families and children present and active. Enjoyed walking the dogs on the park roads. - Sunnie-Wheelhouse

First to say that we were very impressed with the facility. We found it to be family friendly, pet friendly, and really quite peaceful. There was lots to do here, including nature trails, playgrounds, horseshoes, and a large fishing lake. We knocked down our review points a bit because we had to move our rig into 3 different spots before we found one that would really work. Our first site, #36 (pull-through), had a sewer hook up about a foot and a half off the ground. This made it impossible to dump or to support your hose appropriately. In fact, when we tried to dump, the height and weight on our sewer hose was so great that it broke! Luckily it was grey water and luckily we were able to fix it without much trouble. Staff was VERY accommodating in moving us, but was quite clear that no refunds were possible. At all. We next moved to site #30 (back-in), but water and electric utilities were on the wrong side of the rig and our water hose wouldn't reach. We then moved to site #31 (back-in). All was good there, but it was certainly a hassle to move 3 times. Know that sites 30 and 31 were 50 amp only. We had to get an adapter from the front desk and they took our credit card as a deposit. We would absolutely camp here again, but only knowing the right spot. In order to save on utility installation, it looks like electric and water were only installed at every other site. Be aware of this when making reservations and make sure that your hook-ups are quite long. - mnlfish

This is our third time we have stayed here, and we enjoy it every time. It's quiet, shaded and clean. We can bring in our own firewood and ride in our golf cart on the trails. We will definitely go back. - Shelley Coss
