Memorial day weekend was fantastic with all of the things that were available. Jim and Sally worked hard to get everything in order. This is my wife's favorite campground beings it's close and quiet and secure. We've never had an issue with anything. I only wish they'd bring back trash bins and firewood at every camp site. The pool is closed again this year so not as much fun for my daughter. We'll still come back and relax and recommend to anyone else.

We are new to the military campground experience and Whitaker Place was a great introduction. The sites are clean, with full hook-up. I really liked the gravel/cement perimeter design as it helped keep our site clean. The campground was very clean and well maintained. The kayak races and pond fishing was great for our children, they had a lot of fun! My wife enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and general feeling of safety. I loved that our children could ride their bikes around and I didn't feel the need to be over-protective. I never realized how much we both missed the military community. Ive read other reviews about the lack of trash receptacles, but didn't find this to be a big issue for us. It's a good excuse to go for a walk. It would be great if they brought back the firewood. Even if they charged for it, the convenience of grabbing firewood at the campground would be great. I am not sure if it is possible, but I would love to see some trails added near the campground. We ended up going for a ride over to Driftwood Public Fishing Area. It is pretty close-by and offers a beautiful pond/lake and walking areas. Also, while in the area, we stopped by Apple Works. It is only about 10 minutes away and offers fresh fruit/vegetables and some activities for the children. Also, the campground is far enough from the large cities to offer a wonderful night sky. I'll need to bring my telescope next time! The host was great. He remembered our children's names and greeted them by name. He even cheered for them during the kayak races. Overall a great experience. Thank you, and we will return!

Very nice park. The sites are very roomy and they have a huge gravel patio with built in fire ring. Roads and sites are gravel. The park is clean and we'll maintained. Utilities worked well and were placed well. Easy to navigate through the park and there's a nice catch and release pond. No complaints at all with the park. There is no commissary and a very small exchange even though it's an active base. There are some good restaurants in Edinburgh but Walmart is about 10 or 15 miles away. We would go back.

RV Park is clean and well maintained. Good Wi-Fi. Laundry has 3 washers, 2 dryers, all working, and is FREE! Because of COVID, there is plenty of space available. Biggest drawback is that you have to take your trash 1/3 mile to the recycling center. We reserved for a week, but liked it so much we stayed 16 days.

Price jumped to $30/night; $210/week; $900/month. No trash cans or dumpster in Campground nor any trash pick up service. No firewood delivery to site as provided during previous 3-visits. New camp host, Sally, is very nice and attentive. No prisoners seen working cleanup. Grounds need grooming, shaggy. Check in and reservation process seamless. We are pleased to see MWR eliminate all the full-time liveaboards in the campground. We fully support military campgrounds as recreational vs housing. We hope MWR mgnt will reevaluate pricing structure for those of us who are from out-of-state and like staying in the area for few weeks to a month. Please get trash receptacles back in Campground.

Good for short term stay. Being a training base there is no traffic. Nice pool across the street. No commissary and a very small shoppette type PX. Grocery store a few miles away. The good: One of the best entrance gates to accommodate big rigs we have seen. No concrete barriers, just a straight thru entrance. The bad: You arrive at the campground without a site number and must park somewhere (and disconnect vehicle) in order to go to Bldg 402 to check in and get a site number. Bldg 402 is not within walking distance of the campground. It would be more convenient if the site number was also provided in the confirmation email to facilitate parking your RV upon arrival.

Good for a stopover. No shade (I know, get over it). Some person left his trash by laundry facility versus pack it out or take to dumpster up the road (good grief). Some critter got in it and scattered trash all over. I watched people who work here ignore it. I ended up policing area and throwing it away. Laundry facilities ($1 for both washer and dryer) providing they worked. One dryer ran hot and the other didn’t dry very well. The other two were not working. Same with washers, 2 out of 4 worked. We paid $30/night. We picked up our packet at gate for key to restroom/laundry facility. We have to return to a different building when we leave. Dunno why we can’t give to guard on way out. Insects are horrendous! Plus, watch out for big skunk!

Campground has changed since our last visit. WiFi has been installed but is scetchy at times. The biggest complaint is the removal of trash cans. There is no dumpster. Trash must be taken to the base central trash facility witch is 0.2 miles up the road. Very inconvenient. I’ve never been to a campground that didn’t have a dumpster or trash receptacle. If in this area again I would stay but just as a stopover.

The campground now has free WiFi. 3 of the 4 Antenna's which were recently installed have Wireless Access Points (WAPs) with fast internet service. You no longer have to go to the USO or All Ranks Club to get WiFi, you can get it right at your RV.

Best kept campground, the grounds are maintained by Indiana State minimum security prisoners. A lot of space between campsites, a lot of open space, and a fishing pond. It is on the secured section of Post so feels safe. Some permanent residents but I might want to do that someday too. Excellent laundry and not crowded. Wifi works for net surfing but not Netflix streaming. All and all, a good experience.

Stayed here in April 2018. The host, Betsy, was very nice and informative once you get her to talk. The campground is very nice, however there are always improvements that can be made. There are a lot of full timers here, some with storage sheds on their lots that make it look more like a trailer park than a campground. Alot of the full timers have underpinning around their trailers making them more permanent and unattractive. There are also a lot of older units that are not registered or have current license plates. The facilities are great for walking your pets. A couple of trails (not clearly marked) make for a good walk in the woods. The laundry, and restroom facilities are clean and reasonable. There is a small PX on post along with an All Ranks Club that serves food and drink. A shooting range is also nearby. With some additional cleanup of the campground, this could be a hidden jewel. We will return here again.

The park itself is good. The sites are gravel, level and spacious. It is close to the pool once it opens and there is a small lake to walk the dogs around and fish and release. The bad is there are several old and what appears to be permanent mobile homes in the park with junk all over and storage sheds setup at their sites making it look very trailer trashy. Like many other RV parks, I wish people would be more responsible for their dogs and clean up their poop. Please, for God sake... clean up after your dog! For the price of the camp ground, the security, and fairly close location to Indianapolis makes it the most affordable and viable option for any ID card holder wanting to explore the area.

We decided to visit at the last minute and found the campground to be above our expectations. It has a nice playground for our grandkids and the full hookup for the price was a great deal. The one downside is there is no key drop off near the site. It needs to have a drop box next to the laundry. Other than that, it was a great experience.

I've had my camper less than a week. My husband and I are so excited to get it to a spot and start making memories....anywhere but at Camp Atterbury. We rented a spot to store the camper, but instead of being welcomed we were chased down by the most rude woman I have come into contact with in quite some time. At no point was there an introduction, just a full on berating loud enough for the whole campground to hear. Apparently my husband went above 5 mph and she didn't like that. Too bad we were going all of 7-8 mph at the most. I guess her magic radar gun was broken that day. Anyhow, just wanted to forewarn of the most un hospitable "hostess" in Indiana. Because of her we will never camp at Atterbury and we will be moving our camper to a new storage lot.

This campground is only about 5 hours or so from our home, so it is a perfect first or last destination when we're headed north. They have large, open sites, both pull thru and back in. Most have full hook-up. It's an easy campground to get in/our of, plus the sites are easily accessed. The free firewood is a definite plus for us when we travel in the fall and spring. The bathhouse is small, but always clean. The campground has a quiet, wooded, country feel. You don't hear highway noise here!! The price is great, as well.
