Summer Road Trip; First Stop Richmond, IN

In my travels l like staying at KOAs because they have to maintain the corporate standard and image. Recently l stayed at the Richmond, IN KOA. This KOA sets just off l70 inside the eastern border of Indiana.

When you come off the exit you will find there are several gas stations and a Meijer to pick up groceries and pretty much anything else you might need. There are also a few places to sit and eat if you want a break from cooking.

The KOA is on the opposite side of the intersection and sets off a well maintained local road. The road dead ends at the KOA. Once you check-in you will find the sites are well marked so you can find your slot if you do not have an escort.

What struck me about the campground was the pond. The cabins and small back-in sites line one side of the lake. There are shaded tent sites along another side. This pond is very picturesque and relaxing to view. Between these sections is a large pavilion and one of the playgrounds. You will also find docks to launch your kayak or a rented paddle boat. While you can catch n release fish, there is no swimming in the pond. You will find a nice pool just behind the office as well as the laundry room and showers/bathrooms.

On the hill overlooking the pond are about a dozen sites that are a mix of pull through and back-in. At the end of this row is Kamp K9. This fenced in area was clean and the grass neatly groomed. My dog and others enjoyed romping there.

My site had a brick patio, swing and fire pit. The site was easy to swing into and pull out of. It was perfectly level even leaving the rig hooked up to the truck. l chose one of the cable sites so l could relax after the drive and taking the dog for a walk.

Overall l found the Richmond KOA to be a great place. l would stay here again and plan to in the future. Not only is the campground easy to get to but it is close to several major RV dealers as well as Elkhart so you can visit the RV Museum and many RV manufactures. Bonnie and Keith Deising offer campers a great place.
