May 2019 - $23.00
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

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 don't often write reviews, but wanted to warn other RVers from this disappointing campground. The sites are crowded, there was garbage on the ground and piled up way high in the dumpsters. Found dog poop near our hook ups. The bathrooms smelled and were very unclean, wet underwear and misc items scattered about as well. There was a very large student camp staying at the campground while we were there for our 1 night. Made it difficult to use the amenities because they were frequently occupied. Staff was not friendly and did not see many adults in attendance. Close to highway but noise did not bother us. Entrance is pretty. Would not stay here again. - Larsha

I stayed a few days in early July, leaving on the 4th. The rate for the 3rd was quoted at $32 but when I checked in I was charged $42 for that 1 night. There are many seasonals that either make many trips to Walmart or back to their houses as the same vehicles pass by frequently. The noise from I-70 is not bothersome. The park seems to be run by teenagers as I didn't have any contact with adults in the office during my stay. I was careful using my A/C because at busy times the voltage was down to 110. If the park was full and most everyone was running their A/Cs I think the voltage could be low enough to damage a motor. - mrracechaser

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

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

Did not advertise discount, had to ask for it. Owner is very rigid and treats his seasonal campers very poorly, you have to pay for every little thing you want your kids to do. - DougMitzi

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

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

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

Interesting park with historic Indian mounds to visit but we were visiting relatives in Anderson. Park personnel were very helpful and location is within city boundaries. - durham4926

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

This KOA far exceeded expectations, not just for KOA but for ANY RV park/campground. Due to a motor vehicle accident, we had an immediate need to find a place, presumably for an extended period of time, to determine driveability of my tow vehicle and trailer. Called and reserved a space for 5 nights, with an option for 4 additional. Upon arrival, greeted by super friendly staff that I'd talked to on the phone. Very willing to work with us on getting a good site, presumably for a longer stay. Guided to our site, and helped in to a very nice, level full hookup site. The grounds of this KOA are immaculate, and the attention to detail by the maintenance staff is very evident. The sites are very well laid out, with a mixture of sites, from "premium" to tent sites. We were in the section for 30amp FHU. A dump station on site in addition to sewer available. There's also a nice pond and walking trail around the grounds. Upon determining that my tow vehicle was safe to drive, I went to the office and advised them I would not be needing to stay 5 or 9 days, and that would could depart the following morning. No Problems! They refunded the amount that I'd paid in advance. I can't say enough good things about the folks at this KOA and their willingness to help us out after the trauma of a vehicle wreck. I highly recommend this KOA and would stay there again in a heartbeat! - ThomInColorado

Lovely KOA with lots of green grassy (freshly mowed) areas; looks like a park with adult trees and planted gardens of flowers and shrubs. The sites all have a fire ring and picnic table and some even have lovely patios. Definitely one of the prettiest KOA's we've ever camped at. Staff is very friendly at check-in and as well in showing you to your site. Very quiet park away from hustle and bustle of the city. Would definitely stay here again. - kks

Neat and clean park just minutes from I-69, lots are well maintained, all (I think) full hookups, some are grass sites and some are gravel and a few are concrete pads/patios (which we had). Nice and quiet park, as the 'tight ship' would seem to discourage the noisy, partying crowd. They escort you to your site, will deliver firewood to your site, and also pick up your trash in the mornings. There is a nice nature trail around the perimeter of the park, there's a fishing pond and sand beach and another 'frog pond', and the property is very large. All but one of the staff we encountered were very friendly and helpful, which is the only reason we didn't rate the campground a '10'. Don't know if he was just having a bad day, but wasn't welcoming at all. Other than that, we had a great visit! - fastalker64
