What’s People say about Northgate RV Campground and Travel Park

For convenience and accessibility, this place gets a 5*’s. For level sites and dust, it gets less *’s. We stay here quite a bit when traveling through the area. We lived in the area and have friends so we do stop a couple times per year. It is by far the best place in the area. it is quiet and you get to hear the roosters early in the morning! Our usually stay is at least a couple nights. We are self contained so we don’t need bathrooms, showers or laundry facilities. If they would just do something about that darn dust on the roads! by Gestalt
Good for RV overnight stay. Super easy access to I-65 and easy to enter and leave this park. All sites are gravel, but level. Safe, comfortable area. It’s strongly recommend calling ahead to reserve a site. During our call we were told the park did not have bathrooms or showers and that the fee was $30. We were offered a water pressure regulator at check-in. Appreciated the wi-fi. The owners are courteous and we felt welcomed. by Mj from Ky
