The staff couldn't have been nicer. From Sandy, the owner to all the maintenance and office staff, they were always a pleasure to work with.
Like most campground that has seasonals, just about everyone had their golf cart. As a matter of fact, during the season, every Saturday night LMV held a golf cart parade. We'd all line up at 9:16 p.m. and take off, horns honking, lights flashing. We'd throw candy to all the kids who stood at the side of the road, waving us on. It was definitely fun.
Labor Day weekend, the campground held a fundraising dinner with silent and live auction to benefit Riley Children's Hospital. This year, they raised over $32,000! Dinner was donated and the auction was a blast. What a great way to end the season!
The pool is a saltwater pool and while immaculate, it stayed cold. Call me wussy, but I prefer a heated pool. There were tons of other activities - basketball, cornhole tournaments, volleyball, an arcade, horsehoes, you name it.
There is not a lot to do in Bloomington. It's a college town and that's about it. Nearby is beautiful Lake Monroe, where one can rent boats, although it seemed that everyone at the campground had their own boat. We spent one day in Indianapolis at the Zoo, and other than that, just spent a lot of time relaxing.
As is normal with most campgrounds that have seasonals, there was a minimum of welcomes for the transients. The seasonals had their own group and were cliquish. But that's nothing new.
Not all sites are alike. Some are fully paved and beautifully landscaped, while others are just gravel lots. While were there, LMV had all their roads paved with asphalt, so it looks like they'll continue to make improvements every year. It's nice to see the profits being put back into improving the campground.
All in all, while not the most active stay we're ever had, LMV was a beautiful place to kick back and do nothing for a while.
