I would not recommend this park for motorhomes longer than 38ft. They have placed boulders and light poles on the corners of the site making it difficult to maneuver in and out. Our pad had the sewer drain in the middle of the pad so I had to crawl under the coach to connect. Electric and water were on the wrong side. Very narrow gravel parking area because of the patio and hookups. Many residents work, so you have traffic noise early in the morning. Owners are slowly making improvements. - Westside

Very peaceful. Park is about 30 years old so was a tight fit for our 45 foot motorhome. Owners are working on upgrading the sites. Everyone was very friendly. Not much in the way of entertainment for kids unless they like to fish or bring their own things to do. Nice state parks within an hours drive. Would stay again. - David and Debbie

Thorntree Lake campground is a very peaceful, quiet place, with long pull throughs and gravel sites. Each site has a cement patio and fire ring. The owner, is very nice and made sure our stay was great. The property is well maintained and has a spring fed lake with big fish. We stayed there for several months this summer and will definitely return. - User2306

Strange directions to the park-over,around,here,there due to GPS misdirections. Once in the park was pleasant. Owners very pleasant and helpful. Offered choice of sites. - FrederickC

This is a nice campground for travel trailers, tents, and fifth wheels. This is not a good place for motorhomes. Roads are narrow, gravel/dirt pads. No full service, dump station. - Lizk

We got in late and the woman was very nice about helping us get a site. It was raining. She asked if my husband could pull the electrical cord under the RV because the site was on the opposite side. In the rain? No! We had to go in backward, through a large muddy hole on the site. Then the people next to us had used our electrical and all the water taps. When my husband went to plug into their outlet he got shocked. Wading through mud! We went back to their house and told them what happened and they didn't seem to care. Probably fine in sunny weather, but horrible if it rains and some sites flood. Do not go there if it is raining or looks like rain.
Looked like there were a lot of activities to do there. Nice store if you needed any thing.
Sites where we were are close together, but other areas appeared to have more room between them. Sites have barbecues but no tables. - GMC On The Road Again

This place is really fun. Owners are ....he and his wife came by our site and talked for 45 minutes Friday night....they are really nice people......terrific and people are very friendly. It is primarily a seasonal campground, but they have a few spots for people traveling through like us. We loved it. They have donkeys, chickens, rabbits. Owner collects old stuff and it is all over their 40 acre property. The property is on the Whitewater River and there is a canoe/tube rental place right there. The only negative for us was no WiFi and no antenna TV reception....because most of the renters are seasonal they have satellite dishes for TV - Discus 277

This is a nice campground, loved staying here hot water in showers, very nice and helpful owners they are constantly updating and beautifying the campground. There is kids playground and river rats business here to rent tubes and kayaks to go on the river, they have walking trails, fishing. It's peaceful here. Would come back. - Bubbles1987

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

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

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

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

We stayed here in July of 2017. We arrived on a Friday evening and left on Sunday afternoon. We stayed in site 67. The campground is small, but most of the sites seemed somewhat spacious. A lot had nice shade trees. Some of the picnic tables looked like they could be replaced. There was lots of potable water sources readily available. One shower house with showers and flushing toilets. There were "pit toilets" throughout the rest of the park but when we used them the toilets actually flushed but there were no sinks in those so bring hand sanitizer! All of the pit toilets seemed very clean. The shower houses were clean, except for a lot of water all over the floor. A lot of the people were loud but seemed to all observe the quiet hours and DNR drove through a lot to check on things. Front gate woman was extremely nice! We drove down to the beach one day and it was terrible . The beach was flooded and full of trash, there was barely any sand it had all been washed away. There were a ton of boats out on the water though. This campground seems much nicer and smaller than the one at nearby! But do go there to hike some trails. There was a nice bait store right outside the park that sells firewood. The park also sells firewood and ice. - NerdWhoHikes

Quakertown SRA is a wonderful campground. Lots of level and grassy sites. Many shaded sites. Close to Quakertown Marina, where you can rent pontoon boats on Brookville Lake. They have a beach, but there were many geese at the beach. This campground is in the middle of no where. There is a store right outside of the park to purchase essentials and they have hot pizza, if you need a break from cooking. The campground is paved and has blacktop pads, with a big picnic table and fire ring. As in most of Indiana state parks no water hookups. If you choose to camp here I would camp close to the one and only comfort station, as the throne pit toilets don't do much for me. This is always a quiet campground. If you have little one's take them to the marina and get some dog food to feed the fish. - theschuettes
