Cereland was formerly a private park that is now open to the public. The campground is very well maintained and is adjacent to the Softball Park and Fitness Center. The park is south/southeast of Columbus in a wooded setting. The sites are wide and easily accessible. While they do not offer WI-FI, we found both 3G (Verizon) and 3G & 4G (AT&T) service was good in the park. The park is beautiful in the fall complimenting the south Indiana countryside. They do not accept reservations, everything is first come – first serve, but we had no problem getting a site in October. Limited laundry facility (2 Washers and 4 Dryers) but was adequate for a quick uniform wash/dry. We couldn’t find a place in the park to purchase wood, but was referred to Lowe's about 9 minutes away which we picked up on a trip into Columbus. We highly recommend this park. One note, the water & electric box is at the back of the site, so an extension may be necessary.
Very nice park about 2 blocks from the beach. It’s an easy walk /bike ride or the campground offers a shuttle. The campground rents golf carts but are only allowed inside the park. We rented from Best Golf Carts so we could take it outside the park. The park is located near the heart of Myrtle Beach but you will never know it when you're in the campground. We looked at 5 parks last summer and this was far and away the best in distance between sites, facilities, and beach access (although there are some CG's with direct beach access the sites are packed together. No thanks!!). The main bath house appears new (<2 years) and was very clean with lots of room. Notables: fire rings are available for a $25 refundable deposit. Pool and splash pad are outstanding. Highly recommend you bring ant killer and spray around tires, jacks, stabilizers, hoses, anything that touches the ground. This will keep ants out of your RV. There a two sections. The upper section is nice and has cabins, back-in, pull through, and tent sites. This section is very shaded, although if you have a satellite you can request a site with no trees to obstruct your view. There are a few "park models" for overnight rental in this area, but they appear to be well maintained. The lower section (sites in the 300's) appears older and other than the few sites along the creek appear to be mostly semi-permanent. There are also several "stored" RV's in this section, many appears they've been stored for a long long time. It's too bad they've allowed the storage to detract from an otherwise outstanding park. I rated this park lower because of the Wi-Fi and their lack of restrictions on the types of dogs (pits bulls & Rottweiler’s). For the first two days we had persistent Wi-Fi issues. Despite calls to the TengoInternet help desk, emails to their support, the problems continued. It appeared to clear up by the end of day 2 then resurfaced on day 4. The turn-around time noted on Tengo's website is 24 hours, clearly unacceptable for broadband help desk. To be fair, TengoInternet manages the in-park network but the data service is through Horry County Telephone. Either one, or both: could have been source of the problem.
NOTE: THE BEST WAY INTO THE PARK IS 441 to Turnpike Road (locals refer to it as the "Falmouth intersection"). GPS will take you down a couple of back narrower roads. Stay on 441, GPS will "recalculate" two times, then route you directly to Turnpike Road This is an outstanding park. Very well maintained, continually updated, and offering all the amenities you expect from a KOA. There are 3 sections to the campground. Front section is newest and less shaded but is designed for pull throughs and big rigs. (ask if the new sites with a patio and swing are available). The center section is well shaded and sits across the road from the new Kamp cabins. The lower section is being expanded and also is tent friendly (mulch spaces with electric). Pools are very nice with a water mushroom in the main pool and spray jets in the kiddie pool. 3' chess pieces and wooden checkers are available next to the General Store. Wi-fi worked great the whole time. The 2 hour limit is unique but minimally problematic. We chose this park after flatly rejecting a park in York. The park is about 30 minutes from Hershey, 30 minutes from Lancaster, and 40 minutes from Elizabethtown.
We planned on staying here due to access to parks in York. However, after driving through decided to stay in Elizabethtown. The park has several old RVs (not sure if they are occupied). The restrooms are quite old (require security code to use), the connections are quite a distance from the sites. Wouldn't recommend this park.
This is a tale of two campgrounds. There's the new section (sites 201-228), older section (29-93), and the oldest section (1-28). We were in a site that had just been converted from a semi-permanent site. I tried to level the trailer, but the front jack was at its max lift. The view was of 2 old trailers, an old dump truck, and 4 unused propane tanks. This section of the campground (sites 1 & 14-19) appears to be semi-permanents, that are not well maintained. The front section has no shade but is much nicer with adequate room between sites and grass. Unless you can get into the new section, I would recommend going to one of the other campgrounds 30 minutes away. I tried to connect to Wi-Fi all weekend (3 different devices and was "unable to connect"). The campground is 5 minutes from Patriot Park, (Michigan City Parks & Recreation).
Second trip to this park. Very nice facility. Pool, "Ranger Station", sites, all meticulously maintained. Wi-Fi service is very good. The left side of the park is overnight, to the right are seasonals, but the park maintains strict control and there are NO "permanent campers". A security code is required to enter after hours. The park is minutes from the Lake Monroe launch, 20 minutes from Bloomington. We were in town for a softball tournament at Winslow & Twin Lakes parks, both of which were easily accessible from the campground. This is our #1 private park to visit.
Stayed here the week of the 4th. Park is clean and met our needs - full hookups, cable (32 channels), Wi-Fi (strong), 3G cellular data coverage, pool (clean & nice). The park is located 5 minutes N of Middlebury, 10 minutes from Essenhaus, and 30 from Elkhart. Most sites are pull-through. Regarding the water, the water is typical of N Indiana well water with higher concentrations of iron. Harmless, but may be unappealing to some used to treated city water. If so, just fill your tank before you leave home and use from your tank while here. We went park exploring one afternoon and decided this was the right park for us based on amenities We would stay here again.
Very nice park. Comments on golf carts are valid, but we didn't find them to be a problem. Security guards continually monitor the golf cart traffic. The staff were helpful and worked with us to find a new site when the assigned site was too small. The campground is large but offers very nice sites that are not overly tight. The park is next door and shuttles run continually, although its a short walk. Would definitely camp here again.
A very nice campground. We had a spot (#28) on the end with the stream behind us. Like the whole park, the restrooms were very clean, the store is nice. The campground is easy to get to from the N by taking the Teaster Rd (at CVS) which avoid the Parkway traffic. They are located next to the main trolley station which seemed like it would be convenient, but we found the buses, if you are accustomed to city public transportation, to be less than optimal. The office couldn't give the travel times between stops and the bus drivers wouldn't even tell us where the nearest stop was located (at Tanger Five Oaks). However, if you were just shopping up and down the Parkway the Trolley may suite your needs. If you are going to Dollywood, this park is a short 5 minute drive or ride to Dollywood. The park does offer Wi-Fi, although it was low signal and wouldn't connect on Friday and Saturday which may be due to the park being full (or nearly full). It worked fine on Thursday.
Very nice campground. We took advantage of the shuttle to the ferry from the campground on the advice of the front desk and were very pleased. Almost every site is shaded and the laundry facilities are very nice. We had problems with the Wi-Fi the first night, but it was corrected the next morning.
A very nice park. Enjoyed both walking and biking on the trails. Many open sites the weekend we were there, so quite peaceful and quiet. Recommend, if coming from the west on I-74 (Indianapolis), using the Sunman -Morris exit in lieu of Exit 149-Batesville.
A nice campground. Helps to know the terrain before picking your site. Some sites are very close together. Full hook-ups are very difficult to get in the summer. The only problem with the park is they do not offer Wi-Fi and we had no service (3G or extended) on Verizon or AT&T. For boating or the beach a good choice.
