We are a quiet, shady, pet-friendly, family-oriented campground just outside the city limits.
We stayed here one night as part of a cross country road trip. This KOA was more expensive and less cared for than the many KOA’s we hit. Needs some attention for sure. Just simply cleaning up the trash strewn around the dumpster would be a start!
My husband stayed here while moving (9 days), in the 1 room cabin. It was great and very private! The absolutely only thing that could be better was our bed. But the restaurant was great and the staff, top of the line! They turned a difficult time into a really memorable time for us.
Nicely wooded KOA. Sites are level and clean, with nice touches like colorful Adirondack chairs and decorative live plants at many campsites. Roomier than most KOAs we have stayed at, with small privacy fences and patio tables to enhance the space. Also have some fun features for kids such as large chess set, pedal cars, a basketball goal, lIve anImals, and a swimming pool. Unfortunately it does not seem that the owner likes children, as he is inappropriately hateful to them. We have stayed at this KOA three times & 2 of the 3 he has yelled at kids & parents in a hateful & condescending manner about behavior in the swimming pool. He could have handled in a much more professional manner. He is rude & angry. We won’t be back.
This campground is great proximity to I-70 for an easy on/off the interstate and just outside of downtown Terre Haute (approximately eight miles). The park is nice and shady with large trees. When we were there in November, there were very few other campers and most appeared to be transients there for just one night. With all the amenities in this place there is probably a lot going on in the summer. Downtown Terre Haute has plenty of activities including live music, sporting events, museums, restaurants, and historic sites.
RV sites are pull thrus and back-ins that vary from 50 amp full hook-up with deluxe patio to 30 amp water/electric. All sites were level. There are definitely sites big enough for big-rigs with tow vehicles so you don’t have to unhook if you are just stopping for a night. Water, sewer and electric hook-ups were well-placed and easy to reach. In addition to the RV sites, there are kamping cabins with deluxe accommodations (including air conditioning, kitchens, and bathrooms) capable of sleeping up to 6 people to rustic cabins without bathrooms. Tent sites are available as is a “teepee.”
Amenities at the park include: swimming pool, camp store (with fire wood), full service restaurant (May – November), propane fill, bike rental, basketball courts, playground, horseshoes, petting zoo, and coin laundry. The restroom and shower house was clean. There is a dump station located at the exit of the park. Our Verizon 4G phone and hotpsot had great service. Our antenna picked up about two dozen television channels
If you have a dog, there is an off-leash dog park and you are free to walk dogs around the property and there is a long road leading into park. The only problem we had with the park was that some of the trees were not trimmed and the roads where narrow and would rub against our RV.
Our site was semi private with a porch swing and grill. We had such a fun stay here. Not only do they have a pool and playground, they run a small train every evening for the kids to ride. There is a snack bar/grill at the office and ice cream every evening! Convenient to town, this campground is one of our favorites!
