Park was extremely clean and organized. Appeared to be numerous seasonal campers, perhaps some permanent but did not have the appearance that is often associated with permanent residents, such as homemade storage units, etc. Couldn't have asked for friendlier hosts. We arrived after closing and although all the late-registration paperwork was gone, we chose a site and settled up in the morning. They offer a "travelers' discount" if you arrive after 3 p.m. and leave by 10 a.m. And Kudos to the Shirley, Indiana police officers, who patrol nightly and encouraged us to pick a spot and pay later. While our site didn't have a lot of shade, most of the park was well-shaded. Didn't use the pool but it was very inviting and the campground office/gift shop was well stocked. And, again, the host/hostess couldn't have been more pleasant and accommodating. We definitely will be back and are looking forward to it. - Racer and Friend

New owners took over in 2018 and are making improvements to this older park. 60-70% are seasonal/full-time residents with a mix of size/quality of rig (some dilapidated). Overnight stays are mostly on pull-through FHU sites in a single loop near the laundry. Roads and sites are narrow and graveled. We nearly bottomed out our rig pulling into the entrance because the ground slopes and the gravel won't stay on the slope. We were able to stay in a pullthrough that was just long enough for our truck & trailer (~70 feet) but some are significantly shorter. Half the campground is down a steep hill - be careful of your hitch setup, and avoid it if you have a XL (40-foot) rig. Utilities were fine, although definitely lots of iron in the water (even using an external filter) but no problems with laundry and we just drank bottled water. The grounds are lovely, with a large pond, mature trees, and lots of room to walk the dog. (They don't shade the campsites though.) As we were there during the fall it was pretty quiet and the activities had all been packed away for the summer. Big camp store. Truck stop and McDonald's are basically across the street. - a_elkins

This is a wonderful family park. We had never stayed in a Yogi Bear Park. The road getting into the park is about 3/8 of a mile of rough dirt road. Staff is nice and friendly. But when I asked about filling my propane tank on my MH they didn't know how. Sewer pipe was broken under ground.. When I told them about the person that came to investigate said it's been that way for a week not my job to dig. The pull through sites are gravel. Which is one of my complaints. The size of the gravel was almost fist size. Making it hard to walk and drive on. They are set up as buddy sights. There is a lot of road noise especially at night, which is why we probability would not stay again. - newbies2016

Nice park. It is mostly tree covered with one area in the open sky. The sites were roomy and the place was neat and clean. Grass was mowed and it was a pleasant place to stay for a few days. It's out in a corn field (which I really liked) and very near I-70. Quite a bit of road noise, but it didn't bother us. We had good Verizon cell signal and we were able to get Dish satellite signal also. The town of New Castle is larger than you'd think with many restaurants and shopping. We would stay here again. - jomark

What an amazing place! More than a great campground. Our first visit, but look forward to coming again. Grateful for clean laundry facilities, shaded, level, clean site. The real blessing was the people we met. Behind us people arrived who were gathering for family get together. We were invited to join their campfire dinner. We visited and had a great time.
This campground deserves a super rating. They even make pizza and deliver to your
site. - classylady45

We we're just looking for somewhere to get into on the spur of the moment and thought we'd try this camp as there was an opening - not sure what we were to expect. As it was the weekend and the weather was good, it was full, but everyone was friendly and most importantly, respectful and quiet at night. Our site was a little tight on one side, but open on the other. We had full hookups and they were very good. There is plenty to do at this camp/retreat: mini-golf, 2 playgrounds (one is massive), swimming pool, fishing, canoeing, basketball courts, horseshoes, corn-hole and other games, outside and in. There is a small cafe to get treats and some foods. As one reviewer has mentioned, many of the areas of the camp are attended by older kids - My wife and I personally have no problems with this if service is good, and it was very good as far as we were concerned. My wife and I are looking to bring our great nieces and nephews here for a weekend of camping in the near future. This is a faith-based, family-friendly campground, which my wife and I enjoyed much as the air was not heavy with foul language or loud partying, and as mentioned above, it was a very friendly atmosphere. They have full-hookup sites, as well as electric & water. They also have nice cabins and a group lodging hall if desired. We will be back! - MMiles

We stayed here free for 2 nights after buying our 5th wheel from Walnut Ridge RV sales to get the "kinks" of out the new RV. Most of the campground is occupied by seasonal campers. Everyone was very friendly and the campground is very neat and clean. The restrooms were very nice and very clean with great showers. There are approximately 10 pull-thru sites for over night use and were mostly level. There is a water hookup at each site but no sewer. The dump station is in kind of an odd place at the entrance/exit area of the park. When you are dumping, you take up one lane making it tight if another camper is coming in and it is not on level ground. If you want to use the pool you have to pay each day. Be sure you ask for a WiFi password when you check in. Each device is given a password and is good for 7 days. You MUST request this; they don't automatically ask if you need one. We were very busy the day we arrived and about 7:00 pm we looked at the paper they gave us when checking in and figured the password would be there somewhere. It was not. I walked to the office and it was closed, so I had to wait until the next day to get the passwords. They close pretty early for a campground office. Overall it is a nice campground for seasonal campers, and for just an overnight or 2. - Dagma

I'm on a seasonal site here at Walnut Ridge. It's about an hour from my house, and my sister and brother in law also come out and camp--our schedules are different enough that we rarely overlap. Therefore, it's perfect for us.
Walnut Ridge the campground pre-dates the RV dealership of the same name. Apparently, once Gary Hart bought the campground way back when, they ended up selling a few campers here and there and the idea for the RV dealership was born. Most people know of the dealership first--it is a very busy place these days. There is a service center as well. If you buy from the dealership, you can spend 2 free days camping at the campground. It's a nice way to become familiar with your new purchase.
I did buy from Walnut Ridge, but I'd no idea at the time where I was going to store it. When I saw the campground and learned I could keep my new TT on a seasonal site for about the same price as paying for yearly storage, I was sold.
I love camping here. Having ready access to my trailer without having to move it is nice. It's a very quiet campground, with lots of friendly people. The grounds are kept very clean and they have lots of activities. There's mini golf, a playground and a very nice pool. The store sells ice cream. WiFi is very good. I love the trees and the birds, though not too fond of the squirrels and their destructive ways.
There are pull-through sites for temporary visitors, which I've used. I can pull my trailer out to go places, and find the roads and paths to be well kept. There aren't any poorly kept sites to be seen.
My sole complaint is the lack of sewer hookup, but I recognize that it's impossible given the hills of the place. They do offer a pump service, but I got my own honeywagon and empty that way. It's not bad. They treat you like family here, and I love it. - drdit92

This has more seasonal campers in it than anyone else. They have an area set up for people who have bought a new camper from them to stay for 2 nights free. Not sure if you can pick a different area to "camp" in there, but never saw anyone other than seasonal campers in other areas. There isn't any sewer hookup,only water & electric, and its hard to dump your tanks how they have it set up. It's on a hill, on a turn, and its some maneuvering to get it lined up to dump. While you are doing that, the road is pretty much blocked. The 2 days we were there, our sink, & toilet turned brown from the water. TWO DAYS! The campground is clean, is quiet, looks really nice though. If you want to go swimming, it costs $5 a person. I never knew any place that charged to swim if you are camping. I was told by the man in the office that the rates are compatible with all the campgrounds in that area. They aren't. Check for yourself. I would never stay there unless it was an emergency. It's overpriced. - happy2013camper

Majority of park is permanent units in a wooded area, most used as vacation homes. Overnight sites are in a large open field next to the fishing lake, with I-70 just on the other side, so there is constant (but not overpowering) road noise. Road to get there is narrow with lots of speed bumps. Restroom/shower/laundry facility is in the field and all were clean and functional. Very nice and large playground for kids and a basketball hoop. - MBAustin

This is a nice little park and much appreciated in the late fall since it's one of the few that is still open until the end of November. The water is off but it's still a great overnight stop for anyone heading south and needing a place with electric and sewer hook-ups. Owners are on-site and very friendly and helpful. Our site was level gravel and hook-ups were conveniently located. There are improvements each time we stop here and they definitely work hard to make visitors feel welcome. Most of the new sites are pull-thrus. There are quite a few permanent sites back in the woods but they seem to be well maintained. - SandyA

This was the friendliest camp ground we have ever stayed in. We were escorted to our level space by one of the owners....realized that the next morning. Before the owner left our space I smartly said, "Wish we had a table to cook dinner out". Well, within 5 minutes we had a nice picnic table. There is an old section and a new section which we stayed in. Everyone that rode by our site waved an acknowledged us. Hope our travels take us through their area again! - Dot22

Eh... overgrown sites with lots of old trashy permanent sites. Too expensive to recommend it for an overnight. I'm sure there are much better options. - MWM

OK, it's February in Indianapolis and not many places were open. Surprised to see how many people are living year-around in this park and all the creative way they were using to "insulate" and "winterize" their rigs. Some rigs were in good shape, but many did not look road-worthy. A fifth wheel down the road had interconnected yurt structures and it looked like he was heating with wood. (Wood splitter next to rig.) There were trash bags scattered around the park and did not see a dumpster to dispose of trash. After going over to check out bathhouse, I decided I would not use the restrooms or showers. Stayed here in desperation--would not stay again. - RagTopDay

Very difficult management to deal with. Friendly until there is a problem, then they "have to call you back" seven days in a row. Campsite is worn out and needs lots of improvements. I do not recommend this campsite. - Bitzkoi

We arrived to find the office in complete chaos. At first, they couldn't find our reservation which was for a month stay. They finally found it among a pile of files and other papers. The man came to take us to our site "up on the hill" which meant our 38' motor home had to basically go straight uphill and make a sharp right hand turn. There was mud everywhere due to heavy and continuing rain (not their fault) but we were concerned about getting stuck somewhere in the process of parking. The man who lead us up to the site disappeared after mentioning that we should make sure we didn't hit the car across from us. I had to go ask them to move the car so we could back in. This park is supposedly a Good Sam park but it was terrible. We set up and walked around to see broken down old travel trailers, fifth wheels, class C and class A motor homes. None of them would have been able to move or start due to flat tires, junk all crammed around and under them, vines and weeds, etc. Ours was by far the nicest RV in the entire park. We spent one night got up the next morning and found a different park to move to were we felt safe. We left that morning even though we were to stay for a month and didn't even ask for a refund. We later found out through law enforcement there were multiple calls for different things every week in this park. They had found meth labs, etc. I went so far as to contact Good Sam to let them know this place was claiming to be a Good Sam park and to investigate the situation closely. STAY AWAY!!! - Cindy Smart

We arrived for a one nite stay with 3 granddaughters age 9, 12 & 13. No information at front desk. We were escorted to our site up a very scary hill. The Site was sufficient and across the road from bath house. We walked down another hill and played mini golf. Pool had too much chlorine for the girls to swim long. When leaving, drove down the 2nd hill, not quite as scary as the one going up. - ajoy922

This is one of our favorite parks - close to home, relatively small, quiet, and on a lake. We stayed here mid-week, so our rate was $23/night; the rate goes up on weekends ($30) and holidays ($33). Camp staff is very friendly and there's a strong presence in the campground. AT&T 4G LTE signal is strong, no problem with voice or data throughput. Our site was wooded and level, but many of the spots in A campground are full sun. (B campground is primarily a tent and small trailer campground.) From the looks of the sites, Sites 002,004, 006, 008 and 010 may be very wet in rainy weather. Overall, the sites in both campgrounds could stand to be regraded and regravelled, but none of the A sites are really bad. And many of them have lake access! - Indybear

The electric campground has two camping areas. Sites 25-51 which are located near the lake is populated with more trees. However, the sites are more uneven and some are shorter in length. Sites 1-24 and and 52-73 are more suited for big rigs and have more of a wide open area for backing. Sites 76- 120 were still classed for the season. This state park accommodates 50 amp service and each site has a water outlet. Very nice accommodations for a state park. Wonderful park to hike and enjoy nature. I expect they book quickly on weekends. - Scott Jacobs

Visited mid October for a two day stop off. Camp is remote, quiet with a good boat launch into a no wake fishing lake. Wooded sites are primarily crushed rock, moderate spacing with water and 50 amp service. Water stations are shared between sites so a longer hose is recommended. Wooded lots have slight to moderate grade, several with direct lake access. There are also many level, full sun sites in grassy area. Bath house was freshly painted with even fresher spider webs that are not routinely removed. Otherwise functional. Several well maintained easy walking trails to wear out dogs and their owners. Our wooded site was frequently dropping hickory nuts on the roof for added excitement. Probably limited to this time of year. Overall a nice state park that we will return to for future leisurely stop offs. - Newfwagen

This is a casino parking lot. Well lit, safe, very level with excellent drainage. Asphalt surface, easy in and out, space for many many campers. They welcome you to stay, hope you'll come in and spend some money. Check with security when you see one, let them know you're there. Slides out is just fine, generator is too. You will be directed to park in the "middle lot", between where the cars park and where the truckers park. Lighting is excellent, many security cameras, shuttle buses.... free. - DebbieT in Alabama

Expensive but pleasant. Sites spacious and shady. Convenient to highway. Stayed several days to do antiquing. Everything worked well. Enjoyed Noblesville. Lot of shopping in Greenfield. Stayed right near dog park which was nicely maintained with agility equipment. There is a path that cuts through park to office, a short walk. Pool beautiful. Would stay there again. - Andrea W

My problem with KOA is how expensive they are. The same park not part of KOA would be much cheaper. This one is fine and the person working check in was amazing. Been on the road 7 months and this was the last stop so in comparing to the other 67 campgrounds I stayed at on this trip, it would be a fair deal at about $45. - MWM

Stayed here for 3 nights - 1 weekday and 2 weekend nights. Sites were well spaced and nicely maintained. The toilets in the bathhouse were not particularly clean, especially the bottom portion of the base. Several of the toilets seemed to be leaking at the base - the wax rings probably need to be re-seated or replaced. There was a problem with the hot water in the showers during our stay - there wasn't any, which made for a very quick and bracing shower experience. The park has some very nice trails, though they are heavily used. If you are a birder there are a lot of different species in the park. There is a small airport adjacent to the campground - several small planes were taking off and landing on Saturday but not so much on Thursday & Friday. There is a very active railroad line nearby so train whistles might be a problem for tent campers. - liz&denis

I really want to love this campground - close to home, archeological site - but I can't. It's a little tired, a little dated, a little worn, a little noisy. Part of the problem is that the city of Anderson has grown up around the park. The campground abuts on Anderson Municipal Airport, so you will hear planes. It's close to railroad tracks and there are trains (and their horns) all night. The roads are tight and most campsites are at a right angle to road, rather than slanted for easier access. Despite what the official descriptions say, very few spots are level. (We had to level so much that our back wheels were off the ground in a site described as level.) There are random cars/pick-ups driving through the campground. On the good side, the staff and rangers are very nice and checked us in fast and there is a small campstore with bagged ice and ice cream. - Indybear
