Campground Near Indianapolis

Looking for something off I69 or preferably I65 that will be open for overnight stay in early January.

Is there anything open that will accomodate 33' with dolly TOAD, or should we be looking for a Cracker Barrel, Lowes, etc?

capnm,
I see that you are from the same area of Michigan. We also travel south in January each year(after holidays with the kids). We dread the first day of travel since no campground is open until we get to Kentucky. We usually stop at the Shepherdsville KY KOA. I really prefer to stop in Cave City, KY. at Cave Country RV Campground (it's less expensive but a looong first day). They usually have water turned on and we can de-winterize there. After that long first day, we take it easy and travel a shorter day.

My go to is Lake Haven Retreat which is open year round and has pull through spots so the overnight stop is an easy one. $37 before discount, nice setting, easy access to I69 and great gas services right at the hwy 37 exit.

+1^^^ We will be there on 11/19. They told me the water is shut down for the winter already. Not a big deal,we are on tanks till we get to Anchor Down.

Three miles off I65 just north of Lafayette, IN is Prophetstown State Park. Full hook-up available during winter with frost proof faucets. Several long pull thru sites.

The Indy KOA off of the Mount Comfort exit closed for the season on November 10th. It does not say open through the winter.

In the immediate Indy area, the only year round campground is Lake Haven. It is just south of 465 on 37. If you were heading south and planned to hit I69, it would be ideal. But it's so close to 465, it doesn't really matter what your route is.

Proohetstown is open year round, but it is much further north of Indy on I65. Charlestown is a state park in the Jeffersonville area, which is across the Ohio from Louisville. The water is shut off, but I'm pretty sure they are open year round. Might be an option if you want to try and get to Louisville area on I65.

Also, if you're coming down I69, Hoosier Park in Anderson (about 30 minutes north of Indy) let's you overnight for free. It's a casino parking lot with no hookups, but there's a shuttle to the casino with restaurants there. Huge parking lot, so easy in and out, and free is a great price if you don't need any utilities.

X2 on the above. I have stayed there and it is a super good (and free!) place for a quick overnight stay. Park in the lot on the west side of the complex. It is quiet and fairly level.
