Excellent! We stayed in the North East loop with full hookups, and we couldn't have been happier. Note - if you have a longer rig, be sure to check the pictures of the sites on the website, because some have a slope you have to back up to get the trailer in. But other sites are pull through or easy back-ins. Cellular service for AT&T was weak or nonexistent in our site, but Verizon was good. We'll definitely be back.

It's expensive, but it's also very, very nice. We had a problem on check-in - the site hadn't been cleaned yet, so they directed us to the waiting lot, where we waited an hour or so. Then, when we got to our assigned site, we found a motorhome working on pulling out, which would mean it hadn't been cleaned yet. We went back to the front, and my wife explained the situation, and they assigned us another site, actually a nicer one. A day or two later, we went back into the office to check on something else, and the concierge actually remembered my wife's name and where we were from! Also, we were taking one of Disney's back stage tours, and they picked us up at our campsite to take us to the Magic Kingdom for our tour at 7:15 in the morning - for free (although we tipped the driver). This is the kind of detail Disney puts into everything, including the campground. The boat service to the Magic Kingdom was GREAT, and the buses transportation was good, too - we only ever drove to (a) get gas in our truck and (b) see my parents; otherwise the truck sat at the site the entire time we were there. Definitely a great place to stay if you're on a Disney trip with camping.

I stayed at Lazy Acres several years ago, so I already knew it was a good campground. We called them on the road to check whether they had room for an overnight stay, and they said the office would be closing before we arrived (it was January after all), but since they knew we were coming, they kept it open for us. Good service. The campground is well kept and we were able to get a site that accommodated our entire rig without unhooking. We'd definitely stay here again.

After we found two other campgrounds full, we landed at Indian Forest. Great choice - the very first thought I had when I walked into the office was "professional". They were friendly and helpful, the rates were reasonable, and we had a pretty decent-size site for our trailer without having to unhook. There was a lot of shade, and it was very quiet.

It's not a great destination campground, but for overnight I love it. It's nice to walk around the shops after a day of riding in a vehicle. A little frayed around the edges as others have said, but still good, and you can't beat the price. I did find that the sewer connection was too far from the back of my trailer to be useful, though. I carry two hoses. I see this problem at more and more campgrounds, so perhaps I need to start carrying more hose...

Our site was a little strange, and since we were just staying overnight I didn't want to unhook, but I think I was blocking the exit for the next site. Fortunately no one was using it while we were here. Otherwise it seemed like a reasonably nice campground, and the owner was friendly. Some noise from the interstate as others have noted. There is a building in the back that has the bathrooms and showers, but I think it also contains some apartments, which is odd for a campground.

This is a gorgeous campground. I'd definitely go back if I were visiting the Columbus area again. I was a bit annoyed that they charged me $10 for showing up 35 minutes shy of noon, but that really was my only gripe. They have a lot of activities, nice pool, and a little train they pull campers around with.

Pretty nice campground. The sites are a little tight, and they ask you to make sure you're at least 15' from the next camper, including your awnings, which is hard to do given the site size. No Wi-Fi. I wish $80/night campground "resorts" would get on the ball with that! But otherwise it's a very nice campground, and you can walk to the park gate easily, so heading back to the camper for a break is very easy. We'd definitely stay here again for another visit to Cedar Point. One FYI note: they charge you $15 at the front gate the first day, then refund that to you in cash when you check in at the campground. Not a big deal, it just would have been nice to know ahead of time how that works.

Upsides: The campground is very well maintained, and it's very nice. The people were nice, and there are a ton of amenities. Downsides: As others have stated, the sites are rather narrow - we felt like we were right next to the campers next to us, and we just have a small B-van. The fire ring was uncomfortably close to the next camper after they pulled in. Also, the prices were kind of high, but I guess that's because of the area and all of the amenities. Note they charge a "pet fee" of $1.50/day, although they waived it when they heard we had a cat, not a dog. Another gripe was that they ask you to wear those annoying wrist bands similar to what you get in hospitals and the like - I understand WHY they do it (security), but at the same time ... they couldn't find a better way? At least find some wrist bands that have snaps on them so you can remove them at night? But, even with these gripes, we'll definitely go back there again.

My family has a long history with Ramblin' Pines - my parents used to camp there, years ago, and now that I have a camper I've visited a couple times myself. In general it's a pretty decent park, but I find public address announcements extremely annoying - "Attention campers! The snack bar is now open!", and the like. We heard a couple of those throughout the weekend. Also, the shower was a mess one day (probably some kids, overnight - I was willing to overlook that problem), but then the next day the shower was clean but the water wasn't draining from the shower so you ended up standing in several inches of water. Again, that wouldn't bother me so much (I'm sure these things happen everywhere from time to time), but another camper told me that he'd reported the problem several days before, and obviously, it wasn't fixed yet.

Good campground, not great. As others have stated some sites are close together, but on the other hand the campground is clean and well-kept. The paved roads are nice and in good condition. The Wi-Fi only works near the office; it isn't park-wide. One tip to RVers going to or coming from this campground: avoid the nearby Borelli Rd at all costs - it's extremely rough.

Decent campground in a good location. It's right next to I-283 so there is some traffic noise, but it's not bad. I doubt that I'd go to Harrisburg East for a weekend to relax and actually camp; both times I've stayed here I've used the camper more as a place to sleep while visiting family in the area. Showers are pay showers, $0.25 for about 10 minutes, very clean and plenty of hot water, but there's no curtain in front of the changing area - it's just open to the rest of the bathroom. Still, the next time we're doing something in this area for a weekend, we'll almost certainly come here - the location is hard to beat, and the price is reasonable.

I've been to Lake Haven Retreat twice, and I've been pretty happy both times. The recent restroom/shower renovation has made it even better. The roads are somewhat rough - gravel, but there are large potholes - and the bathroom is a rather long way from the sites. But I would recommend it for someone staying in the Indianapolis area.
