A lot of variety in the sites at this facility. Let them know what you want and see if they can accommodate you. Everything from Large grassy spots to packed gravel with RV's side by side. Manager was great, Power, Water, Sewer were all good. Great base for exploring Indianapolis. We camped at Lake Haven Retreat in a Motorhome.

We are not a fan of opposing pull-thrus. As it was hot, we weren't outside at the site, so we pulled way closer to the passenger side to not be right next door to the utilities and neighbor. The grass in between is nice and a wide space. Didn't use WIfi. Cable was good with about 60 channels. Sewer is above ground about 8" so difficult to dump. 50amp worked great even with everyone running a/c full time. They need to put a dumpster or trash can in this area as nearest is quite a walk to the 200 section. Pad was level with a really thick layer of gravel. It poured one day and everything drained quickly. No puddles or mud. We camped at Lake Haven Retreat in a Motorhome.

This is a good place to stay for an overnight or a few days to see attractions in Indy. One very nice feature of this campground is that the side-by-side pull throughs run in opposite directions with the units being closer together on the hookup side. That leaves a lot more open space between units where you spend your time outdoors and is also very nice if you are traveling with someone and have adjacent sites. It also means your neighbors sewer hookup isn't next to your picnic table! Cable TV was a little fuzzy, but all other utilities worked well. Verizon cell service was good. Park is easy to negotiate for big rigs. Although this is in a safe area of Indy, the park is now gated as well. Ask for a site where your camper door faces east, or you will be sitting in the afternoon sun. We camped at Lake Haven Retreat in a Motorhome.

This is our second stay at this park and we were happy to see that they are working on improvements. The park has many long term residents in the more developed part of the park and the shorter term residents in what looks like a newer section. The short term section has new fencing and small bushes recently planted to help delineate the sites. The sites and roads are still gravel and ground up asphalt organized in a shared hook up area with your neighbor. The park has working wifi, good bathroom/showers and laundry and a large open filed and playground area next to their fishing lake. We camped at Lake Haven Retreat in a Motorhome.

We stayed here two nights for a break after 3 long drive days. We have stayed here before. The staff was friendly. Our site was 52, a stone, level, FHU, 50 amp, pull thru. Most of their pull thru sites are opposing pull thrus with all the utilities in the center between the two sites. The driver's side of the two RV are close, but you do have some grass on your door side. The utilities are in the center of the pull thru and convenient for my setup. Electric was good, sewer great location, water easy to connect to but low pressure at 30 psi. While there are a few big trees between some of the sites, the satellite was not a problem. As said below, there are many seasonal and workers here but everything is kept neat. The campground is well taken care of. It is next to a fire station and as almost every CG we've stayed in there is a train near enough that it can be heard. When ever we are back in the area we will stay here. We camped at Lake Haven Retreat in a Motorhome.

We only stayed 1 night on our way to a trip to Missouri and Arkansas so we didn't unhitch. The CG was nice and staff friendly. We had a pull through w/full hookups but couldn't use the sewer as it was too far for our 2 sections of hose, and since we weren't unhitching, we couldn't pull up any further to get closer. Other than that, we had no issues and would stay here again if in the area. We're planning to pick up another sewer hose to have on hand if we come across this again. We camped at Lake Haven Retreat in a Travel Trailer.

Nice campground. Many full time residents and workers but most places are kept tidy. Utilities are solid. Didn't try cable since we could easily use our satellite in the pull thru area. When I made the reservation, I was told only 2 nights available but on check in, asked again and she was able to make 3 nights happen so I appreciate the lady working that day making a little extra effort to accommodate us. Sites are fairly level and some what close but not intrusive. The WiFi is typical campground slow and clunky but it does work. I would stay here again if ever in the area.

Affordable park with decent sites that are good for exploring the Indy area. The sites are ground up asphalt and organized in a back to back pull through organization where you share a common hook up area with your neighbor. The sites are very close together with a small grass area and picnic table in the passenger side living area. We did not check out the bathrooms or laundry area. The wifi, however, worked. We camped at Lake Haven Retreat in a Motorhome.

Just 6 miles south of downtown Indy, Lake Haven is easily the closest RV park. The park is located in a very industrial area of town, with the associated large trucks and dust. South Indy itself is a little gritty. The park is fairly large and surrounds a fishing lake and grassy park. They arrange most of the sites in pairs back to back with both rigs sharing the FHU utilities; consequently, you are also facing front to front with the next rig and share a grass/picnic table area. It's a very quiet park with a majority of permanent residents, so this method worked fine, but it would be bad if your shared front yard neighbor was a party animal. Regardless, we lucked out with an end site overlooking the lake, spent many evenings sitting out enjoying the view. Only one combined laundry and bathhouse near the main office, so a bit of a hike from the back lots. Friendly and efficient staff keep the grounds very tidy. We camped at Lake Haven Retreat in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

There is a Kroger about a mile away, and a larger shopping center, with a Walmart about 4 miles away. Indy is a large city with a huge population and traffic is horrible in the mornings and evenings. Amazingly bike friendly city, with a very nice trail following the White River and one of the best urban bike/walking paths running right through downtown.

Front desk staff is super helpful and attentive. I accidently parked on the grass once and received a kind note asking me not to. :) I was super happy with the way they handled it. The sites are really close to the one behind it but gave us ample room in front that we share with another camper (ie buddy sites). We will very likely return to this place. I cannot express enough how kind the people at the front desk were. Also- if you have kids, walk them over to the fire station and chat with a fireman. He gave my daughter and I a tour of the fire truck and told us all about his job. It was very fun. My husband enjoyed the gaming scene in Indianapolis. Every Monday and Tuesday at local game shops they allow for open board gaming. All 3 of us had a good time here. 6 thumbs up! We camped at Lake Haven Retreat in a Motorhome.

Well run campground with friendly staff. Site layout is a little weird with the set up being driver side to driver side, but on a positive note, you don't see your neighbors sewer hookup when you are outside. The entire 200 section is mostly gravel. We were fortunate to get site 211 and had a grass side yard. Very close to the center of Indianapolis, with lots to do and see.
