Great Attitude an Service by the staff. I was warmly welcomed and escorted to my site. The only amenity not available is Sewage Hookup but they offer a dump instead. Very open wide spaced sites. Shade is hard to come by.
The Park came about because the Property was Part of huge Military Camp developed for WWII. There were 10 Army Divisions that trained here over the years. The Camp was downsized and Johnson County was given Control over many and I do mean Many Acres. Activities include 18 Hole Golf Course, Horse Show Barn and Arena, Seniors Center, Hiking Trails, Gun Ranges & on and on.
I'm here two weeks. I will return
Nice but bare bones former military campground.
We have camped here twice, we needed to be as close to Trafalgar Indiana as possible, not many camping options in the local area.
Not a bad place to just pack up and camp. Clean facilities could use a bit more trees.
Very quiet and peaceful!! Clean bathrooms/showers!!! Park is nice and clean too!! Very reasonable!!
The cost of the spot was excellent. This is where we moved to after leaving Camp Atterbury. There are very few 50 amp spots, so we were in a 30 amp spot. The camp host was nice and helpful. The bathroom is adequate. There are no laundry facilities. There's lots of shade trees and the area is lush and green.
