We were seasonal campers at this camp ground for years. It has steadily declined in seasonal campers because the owner increases the rent every year, while not maintaining the grounds or stocking the fishing lake. They spray chemicals in the lake with total disreguard for swimmers using the beach area and anyone fishing. The spraying boat has a huge pump that sprays what appears to be copper sulfate (blue] right where you are trying to fish and blasts the swim area also while swimmers are still in the water (including kids]. On more than one occasion, parents screamed at there kids to get out of the water because of this. This happened on a Sunday. Really? We have since also pulled out permanently after dealing with this nonsense, Could go on and on with other things we have witnessed but will stop with this. The owner seems to only care about the money, and the camp ground reflexs this. - iwashere

I checked in after seven. Jim the camp host was very friendly along with everyone I met. I got set up and them walked up to the "store" to pay. Long walk. mix up on my site number, but was handled quickly. I understood the fees as the park is more amusement for family than for an overnighter . Site had been mowed and left the clippings behind, must have been a foot tall before mowing, Jim said they had a lot of rain. - captjer

Pulled in to Modoc & went to the store to check in. Was given a map for our site. Got there about 5 -6 pm. The 1st night set up and just walked around the camp grounds, let the kids play at the play ground. Not sure of our site number, last row near the street. Very noisy from road traffic. Folks seem to haul it down this road. The next morning we ate breakfast & we headed to the pond. Not a lot of folks there as most pulled out that morning. There were about 10-15 folks swimming. Some very young 2-3 years old. My husband and myself were sitting on the beach area watching our grandkids swimming. They were in the pond about a half hour or so when a boat spraying something was on the other side of the pond. We ask a couple that was sitting near us if they were full time here or visiting and if they knew what was being sprayed. They had stated they were full time & had no idea what was being sprayed. There was another couple who was there visiting. They had ask the boat driver what he was spraying. The boat driver ignored him. My husband went over to the boat driver and ask also. He ignored him also. My husband noticed the boat driver was wearing gloves, long shirt and long pants. My husband ask if this stuff he was spraying was hazardous because of him being completely covered while he was spraying. He finally answered and said state regulations. We told our grandkids to GET OUT OF THE WATER IMMEDIATELY. Several others were screaming the same thing. We all went to find the owner and find out what was being sprayed. The owner stated he did not know BUT he would bring us a chemical paper of what was being sprayed. The 1st line read Hazards to humans and domestic animals. DO NOT get on skin clothing in eyes -mouth or inhale. To achieve desired control with herbicide in flowing waters (which this is not), a minimum exposure period of 3 hours should be maintained. ARE YOU KIDDING ME???? Rec'd a refund of 1/2 our swimming fee and our camp fee for that day. Loaded up and left immediatly. NEVER COMING BACK HERE AGAIN. - Loandiva

I really enjoyed staying here. We tent camped for the Labor Day weekend. When we got to our site, there was an RV there, so the people moved it. We had no fire ring or picnic table, but management brought us those items within a reasonable amount of time. There were many activities from community wide garage sales, to Bingo, to a DJ at night. They also had food on site such as breakfast and chicken dinners. The restrooms were not very clean, but I feel it was more due to the campers messiness, than staff's lack of trying to keep clean. They were here often cleaning. The only "dislikes" I have in regards to this campground were that: 1. People weren't made to clean up after pets so there was danger of stepping in doggie doo quite often. 2. Campers had to pay to use the pool. I feel that if you are already paying $25.00 a night to camp, the pool should be included. It was only $1.50 but it is the principle. Overall, this campground was a lot of fun. The people were friendly, and there were always a lot of activities to keep all ages busy! I would definitely come here again. - Shelleystarr2753

This campground is currently in transition, it has a new owner and they are slowing cleaning it up. This CG was allowed to become run down for years, new owners are trying. This CG is huge with 400 sites and almost of them have old trailers with porches and structures build around them. Many sites are 'for sale' as the new owners are forcing them out. The weekend camping sites are in a nice shaded area close to the bathroom. Water is from a well and has a slight sulfur smell, the hardest water I have ever used, even with a water filter. Lots of golf carts, lots of weekend party type crowd, and even a few beer bottles laying around. The bathroom has a sign to remind people to remove beer bottle from the bathrooms. Has a large swimming pool, several games of Bingo on the weekends, and playground for the kids. Has several lakes with reports of good fishing, catch and release. It's far from Paradise, and was a running joke with our group. If the owners clean up a few more run down trailers, warn you about the drinking water, it might return to being a Paradise. - damonbeals

This park may not even be open now. When we left, the managers had quit and the owner never showed his face. The electric was okay, the sewer had exposed lines, the water is literally not potable and you are warned not to use it as it is loaded with sulfur. - Cyberdave-1

We stayed fairly close to comfort station, and found it a busy traffic site. Well shaded, and good water, trash removal, had picnic tables and campfires are allowed. Most sites are pretty well graveled and reasonably easy to level a camper. They have added water view cabins, and most of the park provides for easy fishing access, and water view.
Friendly staff, well security patrolled. Really need to improve the sewer dump station. It would really make it a better park, if they installed sewer connections and upgraded the restroom and shower facilities. - Jacobsen

Stayed here due to the close proximity to the Muncie 70.3 race. Mostly seasonal campers. The daily RV sites have only a 30 amp outlet and water hookup. They are generally narrow, unlevel and scattered with trash. Can't figure why folks don't pick up after themselves because there are large trash cans every couple sites. The grass isn't mowed often. They have primitive tent site closer to the one bathroom/shower. Although the bathroom is old it was fairly clean. The staff is friendly and helpful although they allowed another RV to take the site I'd reserved because they were staying longer and they said our 40ft would fit on a site that was made for a 20ft. This isn't a place you would come to "camp" but if you're coming to race or boat/fish it fits the bill for an overnight or two. - cpahog

For a fairground this place is pretty good. They have some full hookups, some with electric and water, and some with only electric that are more in the center of what I would assume is the fair activity, like the midway or near the animal barns. We had water and 50-amp electric, and pulled through to take up two spots with our 45' fifth wheel and HDT. Not a problem the way they're laid out. I spoke with the ladies in the office at the grandstand the next morning and they said that taking up two spots wasn't an issue. There wasn't anyone else around, and with 600 total spots.... it's self-service, pick your spot and leave the money in an envelope. The showers are in the campground/Speed building. They were pretty awful. They looked clean and had really good water flow, but the water didn't drain so even if you shut it off when you weren't rinsing you were still standing in 2-3 inches of water. Fortunately the cement rim kept it from overflowing into the rest of the bathroom, which was fairly clean considering it's near a horse barn. We think there might be another bathhouse with showers, but with the park empty the only one open was the one closest to the horse barns, where people were pretty active with the trotters. It was fun to see them working the horses. The sites would be very close together (and are designed for much smaller trailers) if they were all full, but the only time that happens is during the fair. We had the whole area to ourselves, and it was wonderful with all the green grass and huge shade trees. Plenty of room to pick a site with or without trees, as you choose. There's no non-fair camping during the month of August. No reservations, just come on in. You can ride your bike around the fairgrounds, lots of paved roads, and of course there are the horses. Rustic accomodations, no picnic tables or fire pits, but it rained most of the time we were here anyway. We would stay here again if we're in the area. - Denise and Glenn

Keep in mind this is a Fairground, but large area for walking or riding your bike. Grass Sites, some full hook-up, some with just electric. Close to grocery and fast food. Great Steakhouse across the street "Fairlawn Steakhouse". We stayed for a month. Eldora Speedway is maybe 30 minutes away. Dayton, Ohio is about 30 minutes away also. There is a "Kitchen Aid" store downtown where they sell mixers & small appliances. If ever around the area I would stay here again. - RVman3252

This out-of-the-way campground is way over-priced compared to most parks in America for what you receive. The price quoted was a weekly rate with discount. For that, we got a gravel site with concrete patio pull thru, picnic table and fire ring. What we did not get was any cable TV, low water pressure, and very poor wifi (owner hot spot) along with gravelly, uneven roads that were very tight for a 42 foot 5th wheel. Most of the people staying here were seasonal with only a handful of overnight sites available. This part of Ohio (near Dayton) has a lack of nice RV parks in convenient areas. - DIXIEDUALLY2013

Arrowhead Campground is exceptionally clean and beautiful. It is well-maintained by the owners who are personally involved in the upkeep and maintenance. I don't think anyone can find a campground as meticulous as Arrowhead. Our only negative as reflected by the rating I gave as being "Satisfactory" is that if you are looking for a one-night, in-and-out type of campground while traveling on I-70, this is not the place. We passed by other campgrounds which were much closer to the highway on our 10 mile journey to find Arrowhead. It's not even in the same county as the others, so don't be fooled by the New Paris designation for it's locale. However, I'm very glad we found it and stayed overnight. It's a superior, but pricey, campground for the casual traveler. - rvrose

The owner was very friendly and stayed open later than normal to meet us, as we had a problem on the road that delayed us. The road into the camp is quite twisty and narrow in spots. The roads in the camp are easy to navigate. The camp is very well maintained, lots of flower gardens and two ponds, one large one small that add to the beauty of this place. Plenty of benches and picnic tables around the pond. You are surrounded by farms and fields so it is very, very quiet.
Lots are gravel with a cement patio, a little on the narrow side and just long enough for our 37-foot RV, tow dolly and parking. There is no WiFi, our Verizon service was good and the hot-spot worked great. Did not use the bathrooms or laundry. We stayed one night, August 16, 2016, would have rated higher if there was WiFi and site was a little wider. We paid $30.00 with our Passport America discount. - BarrettsHappyTrails

1st time back in several years, returned due to upgrade of electric hookup to include 50amp. As with most Indiana State Parks, this park is well maintained. Service locations are acceptable, but 50 feet of water hose is needed for shared water faucet between sites. As full timers we carry 100 feet of hose at all times. Our site was easy to level on, others were uneven front to back. - Teacher's Pet

Summit Lake Reprise
We reviewed Summit Lake in 2013, and were not terribly impressed with the park facilities. Our recent visit indicated that things are looking up!
The electrical problem has been remedied; campground 'A' has been completely re-wired with all new boxes and 50a service. The bathrooms are still mediocre, but they've been cleaned up, a fresh coat of paint, and other minor improvements have been made to spruce up the facilities. The showers still need better drainage and they pretty much drain into the hallway floor, but that's an engineering issue, not cleaning.
DNR staff was walking through the campground on Friday and Saturday night, introducing themselves as security, and indicating they'd be on property until 4am. They were personable fellas and it was nice to know that staff was 'minding the store'. In addition, DNR vehicles regularly passed through the campground. We've noticed this trend at other state parks this year, so there might be a new directive in order from the state.
The trails are easy (although described as moderate), the lake has many options for fishing from the bank, and staff shared that resurfacing the interior roads is on the horizon, as well as new gravel at the campsites, and a re-wiring of the electrical in campground 'B'. Seems like they're intent on upgrading this property.
Campground A is mostly level and open, and the sites have shared, fresh water posts (two to a post). We needed 75' of hose to connect, but it's nice to have a fresh water hookup at a state park in Indiana. Campground B is more rolling, and few sites in B would accommodate more than a pop-up or tent.
We are pleased with our recent visit to Summit Lake and will return. - fastalker64

We had one of the few pull-thru's. The park was well-groomed, the people were friendly, and the lake was clear and beautiful. Fun to ride our bikes! Our site was without shade, but there were other ones available in wooded areas. We would definitely stay there again. - Jeff Jangerous

We stayed here for three nights while visiting the Dayton, OH area to see the Wright Brother's history. The park consists of predominately seasonal residents. We arrived on a Thursday night and were escorted to a pull thru site parallel to IN 227. Quite a bit of traffic all day, but it slowed at night. By Friday the park filled up with the permanent residents and they parked where ever they could around their sites. We were planning to leave early Sunday morning, but had to wait until full light, so we could navigate around the parked cars. The place was okay for the three nights we stayed. The pull thrus seemed to be reserved for transients. Some people pulled their campers in backwards due to the way the lots were set up for the grass and fire pits. One thing that concerned us were these trees everywhere that were either buckeyes or horse chestnuts whose fruit kept falling and made a loud bang when it hit someone's camper. Luckily we were not under any of these trees. I walked my dogs each morning. I had to be careful of the fallen nuts, but the park was level enough. There's a nice creek in the back of the park too. Overall it was an okay place to stay for hour purposes. - SillyAnn

We have stayed at Grandpa's farm many times and each time it has been wonderful. This is a private park with some permanent residents, but you never feel like an outsider. The owners are always on site and working hard to make your stay perfect. It is a great place to relax and unwind. I know several folks have commented about the noise if you are by the road, but I have not experienced a problem with noise. Usually the AC is running and you don't notice anything. Had one brief low voltage situation, but it lasted less than 15 seconds. My power conditioner shut things down until the power came back up. Facilities are neat and clean and you always feel welcomed. - BuckeyeTravels

We have stayed there 3 times and the owners are pleasant people. Atmosphere is rural and wooded. Many children there and things to do for them, especially the heated pool. - johnmack

This was a nicely kept KOA. I have to agree with previous posts that the roads leading to the campground could be better. Our "just washed" tow turned from black to grey from the gravel dust. They only had a water and electric site available but since we were just overnight it was not a problem. We did not use swimming pool but it was being cleaned when we pulled out and looked nice. As we checked in an employee was trimming plants around the office and the entire grounds were well kept. We were in spot 52 facing the pond and did not notice any noise from interstate. We were also near the small but adequate dog park which was enjoyed by our two small dogs. There were a couple of dog feces left by inconsiderate slobs. Why can't people pick up after their dogs?!!!!!! There were several tent and and cabin campers here and this KOA seemed to have plenty of amenities to make everyone happy. Did not use bathrooms or laundry so cannot comment on those facilities. We would stay here again. - Brody

The campground is right on I-70, so you will hear the traffic noise. Gravel roads inside small campground. There are pull-through, back-in, full hook up sites. Also tent & cabins. Our site was a pull-through, gravel with grass between. A fire ring & picnic table. Neighbors close by but could put awnings out. We couldn't fit our truck so it was either parked perpendicular or in an empty spot. Cable, wifi (good), Verizon 4g. Would be shaded in the summer. Pool, playground, pond, mini golf, dog run & walk areas. - jcpjane

Stayed here over a birthday weekend just to get away before the weather gets too bad. The site was long enough and pretty level. The road coming into the campground could use some improvement. It is a long lane with "chips and dust" down. No matter how slow you seemed to go 5-7 MPH is still stirred up a huge dust cloud. As they are winding down the season there was not a lot of the amenities running so I can't comment on those, but the people seemed nice enough. The cable worked OK, didn't use the internet and the sewer and electric were fine. The water pressure seemed to fluctuate however. We would probably stay here again for a getaway weekend. - Godsey97

Just an overnight stop on the way home. Be careful coming and going as entrance is tight. Upper pull-thru took some leveling but worked out OK. Check in lady was kind of grouchy. They have a military discount & when I asked I got a hard look & "Can you prove it??"
I don't carry a copy of my DD214 but finally convinced her to take my American Legion membership card after another hard look. Interior roads tight. Won't stay here again. - miller.va

Campground is mostly seasonal sites but has a couple of pull-throughs for overnighters. Our pull-through site was moderately unlevel front-to-back but good side-to-side. Trees blocked our satellite dish and this is probably the case for all of the campground's sites. Fair Verizon signal. No cable TV. No broadcast TV. Campground was clean and well-maintained and the staff were friendly and helpful. Interior roads were narrow with tight turns but with some care I was able to get through without scraping the sides of our motor home. - arpijay

Nice family oriented, family owned park nestled amongst the trees with plenty of space between sites. Quiet, well maintained, and super nice owners. Sites gravel and grass, mostly level. Road noise minimal. Amenities include pool, playground, micro-golf, dog run, pavilion, book exchange, and gift store. Didn't use bathrooms or showers or laundry. Local area brochures on display near office. Made reservation for one week, ended up staying for almost three. Close to historic downtown Richmond. Firehouse BBQ and Blues is a good place to stop in, across from the Model T Museum. - BandTGe

very old, dated campground who seems to cater to the party crowd, if you are in to drinking, corn hole and parties then this is your place.. They advertise cable, wifi but don't have either. You can access a wifi hotspot at there lodge for a fee. Lake is an old quarry that is spring fed but they have done very little to make it accessible other than a small concrete dock. they advertise a pool and a small waterpark but don't state on their site that you have to pay a fee to use any of the slides at the pool. Sites are incredibly small(narrow). maybe 15' wide. utilities are not layed out well but appeared to be in working order. I had no issues other than sewer connection was old and difficult to connect to. They do offer scuba diving if you are already certified. All in All we will not be back. - cincyfirefighter

We stayed here a couple of nights and used the coupon on their website for 40% off the second night. Nice enough park and the natural spring is interesting. The sites are relatively level gravel and most are back to back, so if nobody is in the one behind you it is an easy pull through. OTA tv was good, but Verizon was a little spotty...two bars maybe and 3G most of the time. Utilities worked well. There are several groceries and a Walmart within 5 miles. We would stay again if we are in the area. - jtl2

Stayed 3 nights. Arrived, plugged electric in, the box immediately started smoking and I quickly unplugged with some slight damage to my plug. If I had walked away like I normally do, this would have bee BAD. Called desk and they sent 2 men out who replaced the 30 amp plug. They offered no apology, didn't even talk, but it was fixed. We found the place nice, restrooms clean but the showers are terrible! No place to put your clothes or towels, no seat, no shelving. You can't adjust the water temperature. You turn it on and you get what they have it set at and it's cold. We did have fun at the pool and beach but we probably won't come back because of the bad showers and it is crowded at the sites. You are packed in tight and you have to back in to about 4 feet from the camper behind you because of the positions of the outlets and water hookups. - Mike4625
