Just a check mark

The lake was gorgeous! The campground….not so much. You could tell it was an SRA and not a state park. Trails were decent. Some of them were a bit overgrown.

Small, cheap, and difficult to find.

Super cheap at only 8.50 a night, but its located within a gated community. You must go to the main gate at 1 Waynoka Dr. Sardinia, OH 45171 to enter the they will give you a map to the campground. Lots are ok, but gravel. Nice bath houses and electric is at each site. Not much hiking or adventure here but a good place to camp a few nights. Lots of permanent campers and kids biking around. Good shade. First come first serve, but they usually have a few sites open when we go.

Awesome campground for Kayakers

Whitewater Memorial State Park is located close to Liberty Indiana and is our favorite between the two major parks on Brookville Lake. It has water access to both Brookville and Whitewater lakes. The campground facilities are newly updated with two large shower/bath houses. A few of the campsites are buddy sites that allow you to camp with a friend and share the same area. Many fishermen and kayakers frequent the lake trails.

Beautiful trails and Lake access

Mounds State Recreation Area located near Brookville Indiana is a beautiful location with camping for tents, trailers and motorhomes. There’s plenty of outdoor recreation available with trails and water access to Brookville Lake. About a dozen of the campsites have full hookups with 50amp power, water and sewer. These sites are big rig friendly. When booking online be cautious of site grade as many of the sites in the original loops have a moderate grade and are uneasy for motorhomes to level. The camp store has both ice and firewood available as well as souvenirs and snacks. Be cautious when making reservations as there is also a similar park with the same name located in northern Indiana.

Large property with lots of green space

Indian Lakes Campground is 10 minutes east of downtown Batesville, an hour to the east of Indianapolis and an hour to the west of Cincinnati. With over 1000 sites they offer a KOA section, year round leased sites, Thousand Trails sites and individual sites. We’re a married couple in our forties traveling with two dogs and a cat in our 37 foot motorhome and members of Thousand Trails. We arrived on April 3rd, the day prior to Indiana Covid-19 stay at home restrictions. The property owners were gracious enough to allow us to extend our stay beyond the normal 14 day limit for our personal safety. We were assigned a 50 amp site with water and sewer in loop 4B. This is an open loop with very few trees for shade. Immediately across from our site is a large field about the length of a football field. We can see the lake in the distance past the recreation and pool areas. During our stay we did not access the restroom, laundry, recreation or store areas as we were practicing social distancing. We plan to make many return trips to this campground in the future. Because we were the first to stay in our site since the campground closed for the winter season we had a little site maintenance/pickup to perform but nothing too out of the norm. The noise from the highway can only be heard about once a week. On weekends there’s an increase in golf-cart users and most neighbors are respectful during quiet hours.

Nice greenspace and location

Batesville KOA is located within the Indian Lakes Campground, 10 minutes east of downtown Batesville, an hour to the east of Indianapolis and an hour to the west of Cincinnati. Reserving the KOA site was effortless on the KOA website. We generally do not stay at KOA’s for more than 1-2 nights because they do not allow you to pre-reserve a specific site. Sites are assigned at management's discretion. We’re a married couple in our forties traveling with two dogs and a cat in our 37 foot motorhome. We arrived at this KOA with the intention to bridge into our stay into the larger property, we were only in the KOA loop 2 nights. This was the week IN/KY/OH began Covid-19 stay at home restrictions. The KOA loop of the Indian Lakes property has lots of green space, the sites are all gravel with a small lake inside the loop that offers calming views. We stayed comfortably at a 30amp/water/sewer site. Because our stay was early in the season the property had not received their updated property maps. We did not access the laundry, restrooms or camp store due to COVID-19.


I’ve been camping here every summer since I was a child. There is always a lot to do for all age groups. They’ve also added in a dog park which is perfect for my fur babies! There’s plenty of trails for hiking and adventuring. Archery range, plenty of spots to fish and keep everyone occupied! Love this campground and will continue to come back for many years to come!

Corona Camping

1st trip of season. Great campground site 80. Only camper in that section. Very pleased with site and campground. Would highly recommend

Great camp ground

Nice paved spots with electric or full hook ups. Good trails, 20 min from mall and restaurants, nice lake, bathrooms, and plenty of shade.

Eh, Not Like It Used To Be

The trails used to be really nice maybe it’s just an off season but was not impressed with the amount of trash in the water and in the trails itself. Otherwise if you can overlook the trash, it’s decent 🚮😕
