Although there were several here: we did not find this park to be "big rig friendly". The trees at our site (and throughout the park for that matter) had large black spots all over them and were touching the top of the slides when we put them out. We asked for the trees to be trimmed and they could not get to it until the following day when it was raining. We needed the awning out but were unable, to do so. It was actually the second day before they trimmed the trees. Due to some very tight turns: we scratched our coach on a bush which had been previously trimmed leaving sharp points on the side. Our cable TV was not working so we shared with a neighbor who had a splitter. The owners' five white dogs are beyond noisy; and the front side of the campground gets highway noise. The pool was tiny. There are indeed some unsightly permanent sites and stored units. We will not return unless it is absolutely unavoidable. We camped at Crawfordsville KOA in a Motorhome.

Kind of an older KOA. Nice stop-off point near the highway. Pool was very cold but somewhat tolerable. Quiet night for the park, only a few other campers here. We stayed here as a stop-off point on our way to Indianapolis. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Will return again. We camped at Crawfordsville KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Quiet and convenient to attractions/restaurants in Crawfordsville. Staff was friendly and helpful. Pool was old but showed evidence of recent repairs/renovation. Sites were shady but we had difficulty positioning the trailer because of small size of pull through. Internet access was not available as advertised. Grounds were receiving careful care, lots of beautiful bushes, trees and flowers. We camped at Crawfordsville KOA in a Travel Trailer.

I have a different take than the last reviewer. Beautifully landscaped campground with good access roads and level sites. The staff was courteous and responsive. Reserve ahead of time and request site 21 for good satellite coverage. We camped at Crawfordsville KOA in a Motorhome.

First off, we tried calling ahead for two days and got only voice mail stating that there is room in the CG for that night. It was the same message for both days !! When we finally got here there was a note on the door saying " back at 1pm " We waited because we needed the utilities before heading home. CG is mostly permanent run down, shabby units with only a few overnight sites with full hookups. The owner/manager has four small yapping dogs that irritate easily. The in/out road is OK but the CG is hilly and the roads are bumpy and very narrow. Our site has dog waste from a previous RV'er. We will avoid this one at all costs. Our patience is running pretty thin with these older KOA facilites. We camped at Crawfordsville KOA in a Motorhome.

This is a pretty good campground for an overnight stop when traveling on I-74. It is about a mile off the interstate and easy to find. Navigation within the campground is fairly easy but the roads are somewhat narrow. Our site was level but some others appeared to be not level. The people were friendly, Wi-Fi works OK and cable is good with plenty of channels. Sites are all pull throughs, long, and of adequate width. We would stay here again. We camped at Crawfordsville KOA in a Motorhome.

My husband and I camped here for the 4th of July weekend and were pleasantly surprised. This is a very nice, quiet, and well kept campground. We did not have any problems with the Wi-Fi, nor did we have any problems getting into our slot (we had a full hook-up pull through.) Didn't even need to use their cable as our satellite worked perfectly. Very friendly staff. Even had a free ice cream social for all of the campers. Also, they have two clean doggie walk areas for you to use. I'd recommend this campground highly for anyone who needs a nice quiet place to stay. We camped at Crawfordsville KOA in a Motorhome.

The huge shade trees were very welcoming, and we loved listening to the birds sing. Our site was clean and attractive. We checked in later than usual about 8:00 p.m. Laundry was a priority for us and we failed to ask if the laundry remained open as we have not come across a campground that locked theirs. After we had gathered, organized and transported the laundry, we were informed that it would be closing at 9 p.m. We won't make this mistake again as we chose this KOA over other facilities without a laundry. We found the restrooms open and took late showers. As we walked by the pool, we commented it would be wonderful to exercise by swimming in the morning, but then noticed the pool did not open until 10 a.m. This was another missed opportunity. Using the front office, we found a raw chicken leg on a paper plate sitting in the counter area as we paid. Why? We didn't ask. We also asked for local event information twice and received a "I really don't know" answer. Pretty campground, time the facilities if you are paying to use them. We camped at Crawfordsville KOA in a Travel Trailer.

For the midwest, I thought this was a good park. It is nicely shaded with large trees and there are flower gardens throughout the park. Grounds were clean and neat, as were the restrooms. It is tight, however, and you have to be careful in making turns and watching for overhead limbs. People in a huge motorhome could not get into the site next to us and we (w/a 28 foot 5'er) could barely get into ours. Wi-Fi is a joke here. The only place I could get it was in the laundry room with the door to the Main Office open. I don't think they have any external aerials for Wi-Fi, although they claim there are 4 on each side of the building. We camped at Crawfordsville KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This may have been a beautiful place, but there was no service. We arrived at 7:00 and the office was closed. We had to walk around the park with a flashlight trying to find an available spot. There was no one to guide us in, and it was a difficult spot to get into. We left in the morning about 10:30. Still the office was closed. We therefore, didn't have Wi-Fi, and didn't really enjoy the campground. Why would a campground close so early in the evening, and open so late in the morning??? We camped at Crawfordsville KOA in a Motorhome.

Typical KOA, it's just okay. We never could get the WiFi to work, even when I took my laptop into the office I still could not connect. Cable TV is only in the full hook-up sites. Lots of big shady trees so getting a satellite signal would be difficult. Road are very tight. Glad we were not in a Big Rig! Campground staff were pleasant. We'd stay here again.

Nice KOA with adequate sized sites. Getting into some of the back in sites is very tight due to bushes and some trees. Sites are gravel and some were fairly unlevel. Only full hookup sites have cable. Wi-fi available to most sites. Staff was friendly, polite and efficient. We camped at Crawfordsville KOA in a Motorhome.

I have to agree with the rest, it's just okay. The wifi did not work - despite what the office says. We've worked heavily with wireless signals in the past several years (internet dish on our coach since 2004), but no way could we connect to their internet. Big rig "friendly" is a bit of a misnomer; very tight roads with huge, beautiful trees. If we come back this way, we'll look for other arrangements. We camped at Crawfordsville KOA in a Motorhome.

We camped here for 2 nights and overall, it was a good stop over point for a long trip. It was quiet for the most part and we rested well. Two problems we had were with the WIFI and pool. The WIFI did not work despite claims by the owner that it did. I had to go into town at the Applebee's where I connected with no problem. The pool was closed at 3 pm for some treatment issues. It was closed for the rest of the day and evening. This did not go over well with my 9 year old daughter nor her mother on this 95 degree day. This campground was good overall but fell short in two key areas for us, making the experience marginal. We camped at Crawfordsville KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Seemed to be a smaller campground and sites. Hosts were very helpful as we made last minute reservations via e-mail and cell phone. They did give us a level, easy to access site as we requested. I never could get WIFI connection working. I had no problem with it in two other KOA's on that trip. We arrived about 7 in the evening and left early the next morning. Restrooms and showers were clean. OK for stopover on way to another destination. We camped at Crawfordsville KOA in a Travel Trailer.
