Campgrounds close to a highway are ideal for road trippers in need of a break. New Vision RV Park honors the call with 45 sites for tents and RVs requiring full hook-ups to electricity (20/30 amp), plus water and sewer. Tent sites are on the other side of a lake perfect for a spot of fishing, while RVers are treated to spacious, level pads with strips of lush green grass between the neighbors. Each site features a picnic table and fire ring, with wifi for campers needing to stay online. Most sites have a lakeside view with pull-through access and cost $32.48 daily, while back-in sites are $30.24. The daily rate for pitching a tent with electricity is $15.68 a night.
The busy road and trains present some added noise, but the word is this park is highly rated for RVers passing through Indiana on their way to other cities and states. Restrooms, showers, and a laundry are clean, while the grounds showcase a majestic, natural setting flanked by bushy trees with a three-acre lake. Cast a line and catch your supper from the back of the RV, and take advantage of fish bait and a cleaning station on-site. If you want to unwind, play a friendly game of horseshoes or get a team together on the basketball court while the kids get energized in their playground.
The park is pet-friendly, but dogs do have to stay on a leash due to the nearby highway. Owners are expected to supply bags and pick up all waste. There's a ton of grassy space for fur-baby walks.
It's less than a mile's drive to nearby Oaktown, a rural settlement where you can fuel up or order pizza. A 20-minute trek lets you discover the city of Vincennes, where the Red Skelton Museum is a tribute to a comedian who lit up many lives. The city of Vincennes boasts many historic sites, including Fort Knox II, a former military settlement that played a part in the Battle of Tippecanoe.
New Vision RV Park is an easy-going campground with tidy amenities and super-friendly staff. Stop for a night or settle down for the summer. The choice is yours -- and a good one if you’re on the highway and need to take a rest. Peak times are all through the year, and especially holidays when folks are heading out of state.
