Very shady campground. Billed as ‘big rig friendly,’ but pretty tight roads, turning radius. Sites and roads need some gravel, many of the sites not very level. Restrooms were very clean, pool looked nice. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Sadly, the sites are close together, typical of a KOA of 20 plus years ago. we were able to move our 40 ft in and out with care. The campground offers lots of things for family - pool, playground, etc. Lots of grassy space for pets, but also lots of trees - that plays havoc with satellite placement. A good place while in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
For some reason that we missed they are very proud of this place by the price they charge. We only wanted a night stop and should have saved the $$ and gone to Walmart. Very tight maneuvering by trees all over the sites. Would not recommend it for larger motorhomes. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This KOA is old & very heavily wooded with tight maneuvering with my 40 footer towing a car. Roads are a mix of asphalt & stone. Sites are stone & grass. My Site 22 was 50 Amp Full Hook-up pull through. No cable or Wi-Fi available. Received AT&T cell and high speed G3 data service here. Could not get satellite from roof dish but was able to with my Qube Dish. I probably would not stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Price reflects AAA discount, which is usually not an option. This is an easy in/out park and is pleasant enough, but could use work on interior roads, and a good picking up. Nice shade. Laundry room looked okay, and next to office and activity room. No restaurant within walking distance so plan to eat in or unhook. Good overnight stop. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very shady sites, you will like them on a hot and sunny day. The ground is gravel turning to dirt and it looks as if it will be muddy if there is rain. We loved the bird singing and the flowers around the office and pool area. But the hookup connections were in bad condition, wrenched wire etc. Same with the restrooms. Yes we know: there are some guests that don't know how to flush a toilet. Yes, it was a busy holiday weekend but the restrooms were even not cleaned the day after. The Wi-Fi didn't work when we arrived. Lady in the office said it makes no sense to call the provider because it was the 4th of July. Wi-Fi started to work late in the evening. Cable TV channels are poor. Most channels showing no signal and you have to search to find one. Overall it could be a nice place to stay but it needs more attention: soon. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Arrived as a drop in without reservation for 1 night. Requested a W/E site. Was assigned a spot in the rear of the park. Dirt, but level. No cable TV. WI-FI only worked near, or in the main building. Even though we didn't have a problem with our TT, did see a number of motorhomes trying to navigate the narrow roads and sites. It wasn't pretty. Would stay again if in a bind, but otherwise would look for another park. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
A typical KOA: narrow roads and the sites are narrow and hard to level. There is full tree canopy, so our on-board satellite systems were useless. Plenty of cable TV channels and Wi-Fi worked well. Next time if in area, we will stay at Sugar Creek CG for $20 less per night. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice place with enough trees and plantings. This is Labor Day weekend; so it's pretty full. We are 38', 60' with the toad and don't see any access problems. It's just far enough from the interstate; so it's easy to get to but with none of the noise. There are plenty of cable stations and very good Wi-Fi. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Although there were several here: we did not find this park to be "big rig friendly". The trees at our site (and throughout the park for that matter) had large black spots all over them and were touching the top of the slides when we put them out. We asked for the trees to be trimmed and they could not get to it until the following day when it was raining. We needed the awning out but were unable, to do so. It was actually the second day before they trimmed the trees. Due to some very tight turns: we scratched our coach on a bush which had been previously trimmed leaving sharp points on the side. Our cable TV was not working so we shared with a neighbor who had a splitter. The owners' five white dogs are beyond noisy; and the front side of the campground gets highway noise. The pool was tiny. There are indeed some unsightly permanent sites and stored units. We will not return unless it is absolutely unavoidable. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Kind of an older KOA. Nice stop-off point near the highway. Pool was very cold but somewhat tolerable. Quiet night for the park, only a few other campers here. We stayed here as a stop-off point on our way to Indianapolis. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Will return again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Quiet and convenient to attractions/restaurants in Crawfordsville. Staff was friendly and helpful. Pool was old but showed evidence of recent repairs/renovation. Sites were shady but we had difficulty positioning the trailer because of small size of pull through. Internet access was not available as advertised. Grounds were receiving careful care, lots of beautiful bushes, trees and flowers. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I have a different take than the last reviewer. Beautifully landscaped campground with good access roads and level sites. The staff was courteous and responsive. Reserve ahead of time and request site 21 for good satellite coverage. We camped here in a Motorhome.
First off, we tried calling ahead for two days and got only voice mail stating that there is room in the CG for that night. It was the same message for both days !! When we finally got here there was a note on the door saying " back at 1pm " We waited because we needed the utilities before heading home. CG is mostly permanent run down, shabby units with only a few overnight sites with full hookups. The owner/manager has four small yapping dogs that irritate easily. The in/out road is OK but the CG is hilly and the roads are bumpy and very narrow. Our site has dog waste from a previous RV'er. We will avoid this one at all costs. Our patience is running pretty thin with these older KOA facilites. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a pretty good campground for an overnight stop when traveling on I-74. It is about a mile off the interstate and easy to find. Navigation within the campground is fairly easy but the roads are somewhat narrow. Our site was level but some others appeared to be not level. The people were friendly, Wi-Fi works OK and cable is good with plenty of channels. Sites are all pull throughs, long, and of adequate width. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The huge shade trees were very welcoming, and we loved listening to the birds sing. Our site was clean and attractive. We checked in later than usual about 8:00 p.m. Laundry was a priority for us and we failed to ask if the laundry remained open as we have not come across a campground that locked theirs. After we had gathered, organized and transported the laundry, we were informed that it would be closing at 9 p.m. We won't make this mistake again as we chose this KOA over other facilities without a laundry. We found the restrooms open and took late showers. As we walked by the pool, we commented it would be wonderful to exercise by swimming in the morning, but then noticed the pool did not open until 10 a.m. This was another missed opportunity. Using the front office, we found a raw chicken leg on a paper plate sitting in the counter area as we paid. Why? We didn't ask. We also asked for local event information twice and received a "I really don't know" answer. Pretty campground, time the facilities if you are paying to use them. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
My husband and I camped here for the 4th of July weekend and were pleasantly surprised. This is a very nice, quiet, and well kept campground. We did not have any problems with the Wi-Fi, nor did we have any problems getting into our slot (we had a full hook-up pull through.) Didn't even need to use their cable as our satellite worked perfectly. Very friendly staff. Even had a free ice cream social for all of the campers. Also, they have two clean doggie walk areas for you to use. I'd recommend this campground highly for anyone who needs a nice quiet place to stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
For the midwest, I thought this was a good park. It is nicely shaded with large trees and there are flower gardens throughout the park. Grounds were clean and neat, as were the restrooms. It is tight, however, and you have to be careful in making turns and watching for overhead limbs. People in a huge motorhome could not get into the site next to us and we (w/a 28 foot 5'er) could barely get into ours. Wi-Fi is a joke here. The only place I could get it was in the laundry room with the door to the Main Office open. I don't think they have any external aerials for Wi-Fi, although they claim there are 4 on each side of the building. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This may have been a beautiful place, but there was no service. We arrived at 7:00 and the office was closed. We had to walk around the park with a flashlight trying to find an available spot. There was no one to guide us in, and it was a difficult spot to get into. We left in the morning about 10:30. Still the office was closed. We therefore, didn't have Wi-Fi, and didn't really enjoy the campground. Why would a campground close so early in the evening, and open so late in the morning??? We camped here in a Motorhome.
Typical KOA, it's just okay. We never could get the WiFi to work, even when I took my laptop into the office I still could not connect. Cable TV is only in the full hook-up sites. Lots of big shady trees so getting a satellite signal would be difficult. Road are very tight. Glad we were not in a Big Rig! Campground staff were pleasant. We'd stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice KOA with adequate sized sites. Getting into some of the back in sites is very tight due to bushes and some trees. Sites are gravel and some were fairly unlevel. Only full hookup sites have cable. Wi-fi available to most sites. Staff was friendly, polite and efficient. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I have to agree with the rest, it's just okay. The wifi did not work - despite what the office says. We've worked heavily with wireless signals in the past several years (internet dish on our coach since 2004), but no way could we connect to their internet. Big rig "friendly" is a bit of a misnomer; very tight roads with huge, beautiful trees. If we come back this way, we'll look for other arrangements. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped here for 2 nights and overall, it was a good stop over point for a long trip. It was quiet for the most part and we rested well. Two problems we had were with the WIFI and pool. The WIFI did not work despite claims by the owner that it did. I had to go into town at the Applebee's where I connected with no problem. The pool was closed at 3 pm for some treatment issues. It was closed for the rest of the day and evening. This did not go over well with my 9 year old daughter nor her mother on this 95 degree day. This campground was good overall but fell short in two key areas for us, making the experience marginal. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Seemed to be a smaller campground and sites. Hosts were very helpful as we made last minute reservations via e-mail and cell phone. They did give us a level, easy to access site as we requested. I never could get WIFI connection working. I had no problem with it in two other KOA's on that trip. We arrived about 7 in the evening and left early the next morning. Restrooms and showers were clean. OK for stopover on way to another destination. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Everything about this place was just OK. Even though they just opened for the season, we paid full season price for limited facilities. Bathrooms should not have been in the shape they were for the first week of the season. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were placed next to some long time guests and their sites left much to be desired. Also our site had the sewer hook-up in dirt as if it had just been added. Condition of the entire campground was not up to our standards. Stayed only one night. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A very clean RV park in every respect. The grounds were nicely landscaped and the sites are adequately sized. A lengthy cable selection was nice as we stayed here several days. The park is quiet at night and pets are welcome. Management was competent and friendly. We will return. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was a pleasant over-night stay for us as we were traveling from NC to MN. The campground is quiet and situated alongside Sugar Creek. We saw several people, children and adults alike, enjoying the cool water of the creek during the heat of the day. We had a pull-through site with full hookups that was easy in/easy out. The campground also has rental cabins available. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate reflects Good Sam discount including tax. Passport America is available but not on the weekend. This park seems to be highly used by local residents. It is located on a creek and used for swimming/tubing. There is a large number of seasonal rentals. Utilities good, park clean, but lacks some eye appeal. Large common area/activities area. Most sites are backin and shaded. We were in a pull through w/o trees. Due to a lack of good RV parks in this region, it is a good find for overnighting. We would not consider it a long term destination, but would stay again if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate reflects Passport America discount. A little out of the way, but a lovely park. Lots of sites along the creek. Check-in was easy; staff was friendly and helpful. Utilities in a good location; all worked well. We were in one of the few sites with no shade - by request - so we could receive roof-top satellite. Would definitely stay again if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate is for Passport America. Well off the interstate and the directions were a bit misleading. We were in a nice pull through site near the stream. This campground caters to families for the weekends and summer. There were just a handful of campers in the park while we were there. Restrooms and showers a bit rustic. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is the first time we had been to Sugar Creek Campground in a few years. The owners have made several improvements such as adding canoe rentals and a new dodge ball game for the kids. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a nice campground overlooking Sugar Creek outside of Crawfordsville. It is small but also offers kayaking and tubing on the river. It was hot and humid and unfortunately there were a lot of little black bugs pestering us. The area is easy access to Crawfordsville and state parks like Turkey Run and Shades. The owners were very friendly and worked hard to make it a nice camp. The spaces were grass/dirt and we had a pull through along with full hookup. Our rates were Passport America. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very friendly owners, nice setting, family friendly: There are a couple of huge areas of open space (estimating 5+ acres total), plus a nice playground for kids, including swings, slides, and climbing/hanging equipment. Our 2 1/2 year old loved it (older kids would enjoy it, also), but some of the equipment is getting old and worn out, yet is still safe. The campground is right next to Sugar Creek, which offers a nice atmosphere and photo opportunities. We will definitely stay again, likely making it a regular get away. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Fine for one night. Family campground. Owners were accommodating in assigning a site as they would be picking up canoeists when we arrived, then moving us to another site when someone was in our assigned site. We were able to let the dog swim at the canoe launch site (lots of mosquitoes though). Might stay again at the Passport America rate. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice family oriented campground. Owners very friendly and helpful. Interior roads and sites gravel. Entrance road has some potholes. Lots of kids in the campground, but quiet after about 9 p.m. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This could be a great campground, but the electrical system is bad. During hot days (80's) they need to open the distribution box to cool it down (circuit breakers keep tripping). On several sites there are no circuit breakers and our surge protector keep shutting down (low voltage). Their response was to not run everything (ac, tv, etc) yet we pay extra for 50 amps! They stated they owned the park for 6 years yet have not been able to get the electrician to fix the problem. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Clean, well run campground - kind of rustic. Very quiet, especially at night. Approximately 1/2 well-kept seasonal sites. Shaded sites available, we chose a non shaded pull through - no sap on vehicle and no satellite interference. Did not use WiFi - had decent strength signal from our site,though. Big playground for kids. Sites are not overly large, but room enough for slides and awnings. They are gravel/grass and level. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We arrived after hours and before we could call the assistance number the campground owner arrived to help us. He was courteous and friendly. We checked in and he had us follow him to our pull through site. The rate reflects a Good Sam discount. The park is exceptionally quiet at night. The sites are close together. There was no campground map in the hand out we were given. I would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A very beautiful park with both forest and a large, open grassy area. Park was very quiet without highway noises. Management was very friendly and the park was very clean. Pads were of gravel but quite level. I would stay here again if passing this way. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very well maintained park. Many family activities. Staff very friendly and courteous. WiFi was excellent. Downside was limited number of pull-thru sites. Would stay here again if in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The rate is a monthly rate for 50amp. This is a family park with lots of room for kids to be kids running and playing. Nice big stocked pond for fishing and a nice stream to tube or whatever. Bathrooms are old but VERY clean. Spaces are different sizes but all have grass and most are shady. There is a nice playground and a big field for dogs. There is a bandstand but we haven't seen anything going on there yet. Lots of fulltimers but the spaces are kept neat. The owners/managers are terrific. Nice friendly park, nice friendly town. Strong electric (123) and great water pressure. Big rig friendly. Free Wi-Fi We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park is clean and owner's very friendly. Escorted us to our site and made sure everything was O.K. Wide open grassy areas for kids and stream view at some sites. Some sites have rigs set up permanently for weekend camping and was well kept. Not like some campgrounds we have seen. Water pressure and power was good. Some sewer connections were at the back of the sites because it was built for older rigs. Some pullthrus and some back in and back ins were easy to get to. Most sites were shady. Two Walmarts each about 3 miles apart. Many places to eat. Has an old town center and we stayed an extra day to walk the square. Showers were clean but dated. No laundry but owners directed us to a local laundry that was very clean. This park is half way between relatives in Louisville and Illinois. We will stay here again. Passport is accepted and total cost of 2 nights was $21.20. Directions were somewhat confusing but I set the address on my GPS and came straight to it. Reception with antenna was adequate and free WiFi that has good strength. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We loved this park. We stayed in one of the spaces that overlooked Sugar Creek. We were in the shade of trees all day. We rented tubes for the kids then swam and floated in the creek. The park has acres of open, grassy space which is a scarce item in too many RV parks. The owners were wonderful folks. Highly recommended and a great value using the Passport pass. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Using gps guidance, finding entrance was a little confusing. Large grassy area with an outdoor music stage. Rather roomy grass sites with good crushed-rock roads. Moving stream runs in back, full length of campground. Half of sites on stream with additional cost. Good coverage with free wifi. Toilets/showers room was clean but a little out-dated. Very quiet, no traffic or train noise. Would stay here again, even without Passport card. Plenty of room to walk dogs. Very friendly staff. We camped here in a Motorhome.
