I like it so far

Just joined.  Trying to find any city park or visitor centers permitting camping.  I know they are out there but not well known.  Easy to use.  Love the fact I can use it if offline.  I'll review in a few weeks when I actually need it.

Great Atmosphere, nice terrain!

Very large camping spots with huge lawns away from lake; This spot was #53. lakeside camping a little more packed in but more shade. Reserve early! Cute beach was easy to get to, allowed dogs (not on sand). Park program happened while we were there - very educational. Highly professionally run, tight security and ample parking. No sparklers. Water lines close to campsites. Wal-Mart close, large Cabelas 45 mins away. Would stay again!

Great little campground in East Central Indiana

This was the third time we had camped at Summit Lake State Park. It has always been a good experience. There are two campground loops - one is more open with sites are that are level and the other is in the woods with many sites that are on slopes. We camped in site 120 this time which was on the end so we looked out into the woods. Bonus! 

The state park has a nice lake with a swimming beach and kayak/canoe rentals available. If you have a site near the lake you can launch your boat directly from your campsite!

For those of you who are bicycle enthusiasts, the Losantville trail head fro the Cardinal Greenway Bike Trail is only a few miles away. The trail runs from Marion to Richmond and is very well maintained and not crowded.

Fun place

Great family campground. Nice playground nearby which my son loved. The trail was pretty, a little hard to take the stroller, but we did fine. It was a nice evening walk! Plenty of shaded camp sites. We go here a few times a year. A little over an hour from Noblesville, IN.

Great lakeside camping

We really enjoy this park. Many of the campsites are right near the water with lake view. Fishing is fun too with a dock within short walking distance of most campsites.

Clean, fun, quiet

Restroom & shower facilities are clean

Flat-steep Grades for tent camping and camper camping.

Many hiking trails

Boat rental.

Swim area


This campground is small but diverse. You can camp in the woods with a lake view or out in the open with your camper, tent or rent a cottage. It has clean restrooms, a beach, hiking trails and tends to be quiet. It’s not far from the city. It’s a quick trip place for a short weekend.

Pleasant, not spectacular-will go back

Camping area B had the restroom being remodeled with outhouses placed in place of them. They also had dumpsters close to our campsite. They had an easily accessed boat launch and we enjoyed the lake and some fishing. There was alot of surface plant life to catch our lines on.

Super Fun Place

tThis park has a lot to offer. The lake offers amazing fun activities. We love kayaking and have our own (but wait… they rent them- canoes too & for just $5 an hour… Say WHAT? ) Yes it's true. The lake has a fabulous beach for swimming along with a fairly nice concession stand also inexpensive. The park is very clean- LOVE IT! They are currently remodeling and updating one of the restrooms but one was still available (as well as additional port-o-potty's). The camping spots are all fairly large. We could have put an extra 3 tents on our site (we have a 17' camper). This park has 2 seperate loops one which has a large playground.

So now the drawbacks … There are NO, I repeat, NO hiking trails. They have walking paths only. Still pretty and lots to look at but no actual trails. Bummer as we love to hike.

The biggest issue is the strictness of the DNR. We have a large camping group that is very respectful and all environmentalist. However, we managed to get 3 seperate tickets this weekend. There was a sign for no beer on the beach ( so we had beer in our cooler in our car- and someone in the group drank the beer on the way to the beach - empty can by the time we arrived - just to throw in trash and someone saw the can and reported it- automatic ticket. Also 2 friends, who are always cautious of the kids on their bikes, playing in the road, etc. however, got speeding tickets. SO JUST USE CAUTION. But at the actual campsites, we did not have any issues at all.

perfect for kayaking

we live summit lake. the campground has a lot of spots with ZERO trees so be sure to read the descriptions. the spots along the lake are beautiful but hard to book. we like the still lake for kayaking.
