Still mind boggled over Mindys review for August 2015. We have been here since May 2013, due to working in the area. Have been here all that time- except for 5 months when our 5th wheel was having warranty work done. There have NEVER been gunshots fired here- however, there is a shooting range nearby though- periodically fireworks - Mainly... More

Horrible?? What? We love it! My 2 young girls and I have been here about 4 times and they always want to come back to the same place. Our favorite tent site is back in the back by the creek. The restrooms are VERY clean, I don't know what those other people are talking about. There's a pool, the people... More

This is the absolute WORST campground we have ever stayed at. It is filled with scary people, and either fireworks or gunshots going off all night. We didn't feel safe here at all, but can't find a close enough hotel with rooms available so we were stuck here in this dangerous environment. The facities are filthy, shower curtains are moldy...

Planned on staying at Indiana Dunes but it was full so we were directed here. It's out in the middle of nowhere but we found it to be very pleasant. Quiet , clean, even the restrooms, which have been upgraded if I look at previous reviews. If you need a nice peaceful site for the night stay here.

They really need to hire someone to clean the bathrooms. If they have hired someone they need to fire them and find someone new. Stayed there over holiday and found trash all over bathrooms toilets dirty, doesn't look like they have been cleaned in ages.

We booked here as the state park was full. The campground has real potential, it has loads of space so you can pick a site to suit you even when arriving late on a Friday. It is close to Indiana State Park and it has a decent sized swimming pool which, when we were there was very clean (although it... More

Local campers that live here are extreamly rud, loud , big dogs barking all day and nite. ( they feel like they own the campground ). They live at the end of campground avoid staying near those sites. Other than that its a great family place the owners are really nice.
