Shades State Park

Rustic camping; does have water fill station but contrary to the information does not have water hookups for RVs in the sites. Does have dump station and showers. Sites very close together so little privacy. At least one site even next to dumpster. Seems they crammed too many sites into campground.…

Great park in a small town.

We stopped here for a night and you should really spend a few days if you have the time. There is plenty to see and do. With miles of bike trails it is easy to see everything without having to drive.

With only a handful of sites but far enough off the beaten path it's not crowded. This would be…

Great place to stay!

The park is clean and quiet. Staff is very nice and accommodating. Love the guy that brought me firewood, he just kept it coming. Would recommend this place to anyone!

Great Little Campground

Heading south out of Elkhart, we happened on this great little campground (CG). We called two hours out and they had a site that would fit our 39’ 5th wheel. We followed our RV GPS and Google maps instructions to the city park and CG area. When we came down the road to the CG we were unsure of the…

  • Wind caused decrease in recording quality.  Correction, as site F does have the utilities on the drivers side but they are in the back of the pad so have extra sewer hose.

Beautiful place, especially during the week

We really enjoyed our stay here. We arrived on Thursday on April 29th and the place was empty. Some of the sites are pretty close together, but we booked site 41 which is a double site. I'd highly recommend this site. It backs up to Sugar Creek which is just gorgeous in the spring. We saw all kinds…

Best campground ever!

I've traveled across the US and this is the best campground I've stayed in. First of all it's very clean which is surprising for Indiana. Back up to the river. Great views. Free hot showers! Quiet. Feels secluded though close to town. Good price too. Free wifi that worked so well we could both work…

Nothing there unless you fish which costs extra!

Lots of monthly campers and lots of trash. I picked up a trash bag full just behind my spot. When you check-in the list of rules makes it feel very unwelcoming. The "lakes" are more like ponds but you have to stay away so the anglers get the water. Not supposed to even walk around! You back in so…

Raccoons , Raccoons, Raccoons..lol

It is a lovely park. Especially if you have a boat. They have a separate swimming area its kinda like its own cove. They have a camp store that is okay. They dont have much to choose from but there is a DG just down the road. Excellent fishing and fun trails to explore. The adorable raccoons are…

Close to Indy, lakefront

This was really convenient and close to Indy, where we took the grandkids to the children’s museum. The lake is fabulous, but there didn’t seem to be too many fish available for catching!! Pretty place and fun for a laid back place to stay. I wouldn’t recommend it for long term.

Good enough for an overnight

Nothing special about this campground. Is there when you need it for an event. The one plus is that it is easy to go in, pick a spot and set up. And that’s about it!

What a fun place for kids!

This is just a really cute park to camp in, especially with kids. There is an abundance of activities to keep you and the little ones happy, especially around holidays. The amenities are great and the sites definitely large enough not to feel crowded.

A nice way to get out of the city.

Summit Lake is a very nice place to get away for a weekend from Indy but not so much a destination spot. Friendly staff and well maintained. Wooded spots that are water adjacent are beautiful. Since it’s a no wake lake, the noisiest thing is usually the geese

You can rent a small boat by the day…

Nice state park with several trails around a beautiful lake

We stayed before the peak season opened up.  Potable water was available at the entrance but was not on yet in the campground itself.   The sites are well spaced out with a few pull through sites and many back ins.

Our site was a pull through and, while level left to right, required a good bit…
