Scottsburg Indiana Raintree Lake KOA

You are in the right place if you want to learn more about Scottsburg, Indiana Raintree KOA and are looking for an easy off/easy on campground just 30 minutes North of Louisville, Kentucky. We look forward to sharing with you our experience, delivered today with you in mind. Let’s Get Started!

From the moment you arrive, you'll be greeted with warm hospitality and excellent customer service. The staff at Scottsburg Raintree KOA are incredibly friendly and accommodating, and they go above and beyond to ensure that your stay is comfortable and enjoyable.

Coming up later we’ll discuss what type of sites are available and stay until the end for the one disappointment we had that you don’t want to miss. Click on the YouTube link if you want to watch the video version.

First let’s discuss the price. We found the Scottsburg Raintree KOA to be a little on the expensive side. For a pull through site one night cost around $90. Sites range between $65 and $90. Tent sites are close to $50. We were taken by surprise at first by the price in a rural Indiana location. Don’t let the price discourage you. You need to watch the whole video. Through this review we hope to provide you with details to help you understand whether Raintree KOA is a good value for you. What is your first impression of the price?

Knowing the price, let’s get right into what you will find at your campsite and coming up later we’ll share what activities are available in the campground.

With the variety of sites we know you will find one right for your camping setup.The pull through sites as you can see are similar to other KOAs. These sites are about average to better for width and lengths are good for big rigs. Sites are full hookup including water sewer and electric with 20 amp, 30 amp, and 50 amp electrical outlets. We even learned the campground is open all year for people traveling during colder months. The new owners have recently installed frost free, fresh-water hookups at a good number of sites to accommodate late and early season travelers. Speaking of the new owners they are really making improvements you won’t want to miss. This isn’t the old Jellystone Park that previous guests visited. The campsites have a crushed stone pad. In fact, the whole campground is paved with crushed stone and in great condition. The rest of your site will be grass and they are doing their best to grow grass and maintain the sites. Picnic tables are provided, too. Fire Pits are available at most sites for s’mores and those cool nights. More expensive sites will have a concrete patio with table and chairs and some even have propane grills. You will also enjoy the generous landscaping throughout the campground. The care they take will be noticed and flowers and plants and mulched beds really add to the beauty of the park.

Every good campground review needs a dad joke. What did the beaver say to the Tree? It’s been nice gnawing you! Dad joke books are great gifts. We have two we recommend. Check them out!

Ok, back to the Scottsburg KOA with activities for your Brood! The campground offers a variety of activities and games on site for travelers to stretch their legs and you will find one of the following to enjoy. We found the mini golf in good condition located at the campground entrance near the dog park. You could let your dog rest in the park while playing a round of golf. A little further into the campground in front of the office is an outdoor bowling alley and a chess yard game. The pond is teeming with fish and great for anglers to cast from shore. The campground also offers rentals of paddle sports including kayaks, canoes, paddle boats, and more. The playground is full of adventure with swings, merry go round, a teeter totter, slides, monkey bars, climbing towers, etc. There is also a sand volleyball court, horse shoes, cornhole, and basketball hoop for pickup games. Last but not least the new saltwater pool, although closed in the Spring when we visited, looks great for those hot summer days.

Are you enjoying our review? If you stay at KOAs, too let us know by telling us the last KOA you went to in the comments.

Let’s discuss local attractions next, and later we’ll share our one disappointment you need to know.

Scottsburg KOA is an out in the country experience that is just 30 minutes from Louisville. There is really nothing else like it. Dream about staying here and driving into Louisville for the Bourbon trail, horse racing at Churchill Downs, ghost tours, walking tours, and the Louisville Slugger Museum to name a few. We looked around greater Louisville for a place to camp and most of the RV places were concrete and in sketchy parts of the City. We really didn’t want to spend the night in the city and with Scottsburg KOA you don’t have to either. Closer to the KOA you can spend time exploring the Scott County Heritage Center and Museum, visit the Goat Milk Stuff shop, and the Scottsburg Fire Museum and Training Center.

We talked about what is close by. The Raintree KOA is conveniently located 4 miles off I-65 with easy off and easy on access at Exit 29 just north of the Kentucky/Indiana border. On Indiana 56 on the way to the KOA you will find gas stations, a WalMart, and chain restaurants. There are also hotels if you have friends that would like to vacation with you but campgrounds aren’t their thing. In Scottsburg there is a hardware store, auto parts store and more.

Are you getting excited yet? Reach the end of this post before deciding to make a reservation.

Scottsburg Raintree KOA is a fantastic destination for anyone looking to get away from it all and enjoy some quality time in nature. With its breathtaking scenery, top-notch facilities, and welcoming atmosphere, it's no wonder that so many campers return to this hidden gem year after year. Seasonal sites are available. Here is their website when you are ready.

To get chores done the campground is setup well. The bathrooms are clean and showers are in good working order. The laundry attached to the campground office and store has newer, well maintained, coin operated, appliances. Speaking of the store, it is well stocked as most KOAs. We saw a variety of campground logo’d merchandise, convenience items, gifts, and rv supplies. Ice and Firewood are also available for reasonable prices. If you need your propane refilled they have the refill station on site. WiFi is also available. Dumpsters are located East of the campground office next to the laundry.

Where are you traveling to? Is the Louisville area your destination or are you going somewhere else. Leave a comment. We’d love to learn more about where you’re headed.

Let’s talk about dogs next and coming up later I’ll share with you what had me wandering in the cold one morning. This KOA is great for dogs and pets. You will find a KampK9 near the entrance by the mini golf course. The fenced area is spacious and open providing off leash exploring for your dog. Pet waste bags are available for your use. The area is full of green space and trees for your dog walks, and the shoreline provides a great walking experience for you and your K9.

So, I woke up in the morning and went outside to look for the bathrooms. They were appropriately located in the middle of the campground inside the pool house. However, they were closed for repairs and renovation. So, in the dim pre-dawn light and cool 37 degree morning I proceeded to walk around the whole campground and to my surprise I couldn’t find another bathroom. Boy was I disappointed. So, you will have a better experience. Newer upgraded bathrooms are on the way and if you need a bathroom there are more located in the laundry attached to the campground office. I wish I knew that about 20 minutes earlier. Thank you for your time here at CampBrood. We invite you to check out our other posts on hikes, National Parks, and RV and hiking product reviews.
