3 Parks near Terre Haute, Indiana

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

This RV park is quite satisfactory. The location is about 1/3rd mile off I-70, easy to get to. The roads are gavel and easy to navigate. Big rig friendly. The sites are gavel, fairly spacious with nice patios. The utilities were fine. The restrooms were clean. They have a café serving breakfast and dinner, did not try though. - VegasVagabonds

Typical KOA. We try to avoid KOA but it was convenient to stop near friends for an overnight stat while passing through Terre Haute. WAY over-priced. Gravel interior roads. Fairly level site. Does have full hook-ups including cable. Hardly anyone here during our stay so site seemed spacious enough. It likely would have seemed small if neighboring sites were in use. Saw some activities for kids but, as we are senior citizens, we didn't investigate. Pool looked nice but didn't use. Would stay again if in area and needed an overnight stop but would certainly try to find better rates elsewhere first. - Heart

This is their third strike. First of all, the service wasn't bad, but it wasn't satisfactory either, so I chose to let previous visits influence my rating.
Our main issue today, and the final blow for them, is our cable reception. I recognize that when we pulled into our site I asked if it was satellite friendly and was told that it probably was not but I could move to another site that might be. It happens that it was the site we had a problem with before when they insisted that it was 50 amp, but it absolutely was not. I would have been more amenable to having been told that I must have been mistaken (but not receptive to that accusation), but to be told that I was wrong was unacceptable.
Today's issue is cable reception that is so snowy that we can barely see one of the networks. I was told that someone would come check it out, but 4 hours later there has been no sign of that "someone".
I hate to write this place off because of its location in our travels, but their customer service and attention/care of their customers has forced me to make that decision. There are other campgrounds in the area, and a WalMart less than 2 miles away. This is the last that they will see of us, and my recommendation to my friends will reflect that feeling.
Sorry KOA this place doesn't deserve the President's or Founder's awards. We have stayed in Passport America campgrounds who care more about their campers than the service we've received in this campground. - DavidKSmith
