7 RV Parks near Thorntown, Indiana
Jul 2018 - $35.00
The park is well kept and clean. It is very quiet in a country setting. The entry gate with an entry code system provides some security for campers. Most sites are for long term campers with a few sites for overnight and short-term campers. There is a nice mini golf course, swimming pool and other amenities. Camp sites are spacious with a crushed stone pad for the rv and grass for the patio. The camp sites are somewhat sloped, making leveling a challenge. Fire pits are provided. We would enjoy staying here again. - Steve77

Nice family oriented facility. We arrived after dark when the office was closed, but they had all our papers and pass outside for us. No trouble getting in with our class C motorhome, but take it easy on the first road to the right. We had a full hookup. You more than likely will need a plastic sewer hose support for your sewer hookup and doughnut as the PVC was just a pipe with no threaded fitting. Wi-fi was supposed to coming from the barn, but we were so far away that our iPhones/iPad would not pick up the signal. My Macbook did find the signal. A lot of full-timers in the park, but most people around us were short-timers like us. Lots of golf carts.
Some reviews complained of uneven lots, but ours was so good that when we went into Lebanon to shop and came back I pulled back into the slot and got it dead on level. I found that there is a bubble level built into the Compass app on iPhone and it works pretty good.
There a activities on-site, but we did not partake in any. We missed the Thorntown "Changing of the Leaves" festival by one week. Lebanon had a festival in their downtown square.
Owners were nice and helpful. The office/store had some DVDs to rent as we left ours home by mistake. Despite heavy rain on 2nd night the roads remained in good shape. Didn't have any power problems.
We would stay here again. - TomAndKathy

Huge park with lots of seasonal campers. We visited my sister who is staying there for the summer. Did not partake in any activities although there was lots going on. - rockfarmer

This park is in the middle of a cornfield about 5 miles off I-65. There is a Dairy Queen restaurant about 10 miles away, but other than that, there is nothing around. It has mostly permanent residents, but they have an area for overnighters. The pull-throughs are long enough that you don't have to unhook but we had to do some maneuvering to get level. Roads are a bit narrow but manageable in our 40 foot coach with tow. There were some low hanging trees on the exit road. Satellite reception was good and our AT&T hotspot worked well. We would stay here again if traveling through this area. - dickens

Small, homey campground. Big rig sites are narrow. We stayed there several months, at a rate of $350 a month, in 2006 and 2007. Working-campers welcome. Arrangements can be made to winter there, although the owners go to TX for the winter. - Working Full timer

This is a gem of a campground. Years ago tractors were used to create meandering lakes among the hills and trees creating the perfect fishing and campground. The shaded sites help in hot summer days and there is also a pool on site. Catch and release in the stocked lakes require a fee which is fine because it keeps it maintained. The owners have been there 26 years and work hard to keep the grounds mowed and clean. It was a joy to see the families gathering over the Labor Day weekend. WiFi worked fairly well with Verizon Jetpack and over the air provided a couple tv stations. The only suggestion I have is that there is a huge amount of iron in the water that stained our shower and toilet. There is at least one 50 amp site although we used a 30 amp site. There is no laundry available but nice ones in town. This campground would be difficult for big rigs to navigate. Some RV sites are close together but we were on the end so it was no problem for us. There are lots of tent spaces on the lake that are really nice. A much loved campground by folks in Indiana. - GailMOH

Previous reviewer did a great job at describing my experience here. Wanted to give a more recent review to show that the place has not changed much, price went up some. We had an end spot that made it feel less cramped. We discovered people leave their RVs there and visit on occasion. Thus one of our neighbors was never there in the week we were there. So the only neighbor we had were behind us. - MichelleKry

Great location for touring the Subaru manufacturing facility. Very quiet. Quick drive into Lafayette. Many seasonals. Call ahead to check on site suitable for big rig. Very helpful and friendly staff and owners. Would stay here again. - tillie

This was an emergency, last-minute stay; we had to relocate from our planned Champaign-area RV park due to severe weather. So we arrived after dark at 9:00p. The KOA staff had sent us a text giving us our site number. Pulling into the driveway, our 40-foot 5er bottomed out on the steep incline transition. (We bottomed out on the way out the next day as well, even taking the transition kind of sideways.) With no idea where we were going, and very little lighting in the park, we did find our pull-through site, but pulled in backwards. Water and electric on the wrong side. This is a fairly tight park, and heavily wooded (probably a big plus in the heat of summer) but not what we wanted to try to navigate at dark. So we just parked it the wrong way. Signage was not helpful here. We left early the next morning at 9:00, before the office was open, so we had no interaction with any staff during our 12-hour stay. It's a good thing the park was mostly empty; it would have been hard getting out in the morning if the neighboring sites had been occupied. - DigitalNomadCoffeeShop

The sites were tight. We had a pull through with just enough room for truck and RV. The sewer connection was about 6" above ground level. The WiFi was adequate. The water pressure was good. The staff was friendly and courteous. - Dennis Bennett

Location not far off I-74 with little noise. There was an occasional train whistle but nothing really bad. Close to shopping and dinning options. Site was level with good water and electric. Water faucet did have a broken knob but was still usable. Staff was friendly and helped us with what sites to see in the area. They had a large selection of DVD's to borrow for free. - MarkandMarty

We arrived at this campground without a reservation and they were able to take us for our overnight stay. I have to say that in all our travels in all 50 states this was the best best best office staff we have ever run across. She went out of her way to help us with the WiFi and was a hoot with teasing with us! If and when we are back in this area we will definitely stay here again. Had no problems get around in the park with a 45 ft with tow. - hug448844

We camped on the creek side #44. This was a beautiful spot with lots of shade (which did block our TV signal) but quite serene. Restroom/ shower room basic but very clean and functional. Owners are very friendly. - MattM

Well maintained campgrounds. Excellent customer service. They have canoeing. We only stayed overnight, but would stay again. - mrweaw54

Wish there was a sidewalk to the bath house. Very convenient from the interstate. - Kean

This is a run down trailer park that is badly in need of upgrades. The front portion has permanent units along with short stays - many are not level, but are tree covered - not too bad. The rear portion is even more crowded than the front and has scores of dilapidated units - many occupied, some not. Pretty much of an eye sore. During our short stay, two RVers had to move from the front to the back due to unlevel sites in the front. However, the permanent residents are polite and seem happy. The clerk was polite, welcoming and let us pick our site (about 7 to choose from) and came out to help us with a water problem 2 minutes after we called to report it. The park is quiet and located in a pretty decent residential neighborhood and is fairly close to Lafayette and Purdue. If we were not staying on a holiday weekend, we would have gone a little further out and stayed at a nicer place. - Deb and Chris

We loved this campground for what we were looking for. It was close to Purdue and easy to get to. Very crowded, but people were friendly and kept to themselves mostly. The pool was very clean and warm! - Campman92
