Great place to relax. Fresh gravel and leveling. Bath house clean and neat. Laundry was free and convenient. Small commissary and exchange but they have everything you need without driving miles to the next town. VFW just outside of Crane gate had great food, and welcomes anyone if you want to eat, if you want drinks must have membership card. Great fishing at Lake Greenwood! Marina opening weekend was same weekend as our stay Staff was friendly! Hope you enjoy your stay just as much as my family and I did.

This is the second time I have visited this camp and I am planning on returning soon. I like it when people have negative things to say... mostly for selfish reasons to keep it from becoming over-crowded. LOL Someone saying this isn't big rig friendly couldn't be more inaccurate - most spots are pull thru with AMPLE room. the RV area is gravel so there isn't a lot of grass around. The sewer system is a bit odd because the campground used to have TWO separate sewer systems but one has been closed due to problems, it just takes a second to survey the RV site to align any rig. Basically the RV area was cut in half and takes a second to figure out. The staff is fantastic - friendly and helpful. Although the shower house is dated it was always very clean and free washers/dryers. If you want to be on your cell, computer or TV all day this place may not be for you but if you like nature this camp is fantastic. There is a shoppette, good Commissary with gas station and the Hotel/check-in has free wifi with good connectivity, but about 5 miles from campground. Great marina with boat rentals and great fish cleaning station. Wildlife and great well-marked hiking trails abound. Reservation staff is helpful and more than willing to let people change sites when available. I will be back but hopefully this gem stays hidden to those looking to actually camp in nature.

In late June, the campground was flooding out during a rainstorm and work on repairing the damage was completed this week. They brought in rock and leveled the sites of the campground. They did a fantastic job and it looks great.

Extended stay prices are great! Various rentals at the marina with reasonable prices and very nice employees. Lots of wildlife to see. We really enjoyed our stay and was very happy with the campsite.

Gravel sites in a extremely wooded area. They were building a new building for the marina and fixing the docks in dec 2005. There is Lakeview Conference Center for places to eat on base. It is best to get your food before 4 pm, most places close before then. Make sure you go to Shull's Lakeview restarant which is west and south of the base in a town called Lagootee This base is great to get close to nature! huge base that is wooded and has many back roads for scenic drives. Look out for deer on roads! 800 acre lake, pontoon and jonboat rentals. Friendly people at office and basically all over the base! Fairly close to Bloomington Indiana for Indiana University games or Indianapolis.
