We stayed here a month while visiting family, friends and taking care of some medical issues near our hometown of Evansville, Indiana. The campsite is about 40 minutes from Evansville which was a downer, but none of the campgrounds closer to Evansville had availability for a full month. The campground has an area for short-term stays and long-term and we were in the long-term area. Most of the RVs here were full-time residents. We were on site #30. It was relatively level and we had no problems accessing the spot. The camp host and workers were nice and accommodating. The downside is no sewer hookups, but there is a gentleman with a tote that will dump your tanks. The cost is $10 for the first load and $5 for each remaining load. The dump station was full several times while we were there. Apparently, it is a small tank and the city does not do a good job of making sure it is dumped regularly. Thankfully, when we left it was not full and we were able to dump on the way out. The campsite is about 3.5 miles from I-69. The road coming in is gravel but very compacted so almost like a paved road. It is very narrow and having the trailer was a little nerve-wracking when people were passing on the other side. They have a nice beach with a sand volleyball court next to the lake. It was nice, but we never visited the lake. They have a nice walking/biking trail around the campsites and lake. We did walk that several times when the weather wasn’t awful. We were there in the month of August which is about the worst time to be in that part of the country because of the heat and humidity. We would normally not want to be there during that time of the year, but we had little choice. There are a few restaurants in Oakland City (would recommend Taylor’s 2, great steak!) and a small grocery store. There is a Walmart in nearby Princeton about 30 minutes away and of course there are several options in Evansville. Cell phone reception was good, and we had access to the internet with our hotspot. AT&T is our carrier and we got 4-5 bars of 4G LTE. Overall it was a good place to stay and you cannot beat the price at all. We would likely stay again, but want to be closer to Evansville so will probably try the camping there first.
