We purchased Leisure Time Campground in 1997, it was already an
established campground that was started back in the mid 1960's. We added
our last name to the name and created Wolfe's Leisure Time Campground.
At this point, we would like to state that this
is a campground, not a resort or RV Park. We have trees and gravel roads
(many of which have been widened to accommodate the larger RV's of today's
world). The property has three (3) distinct levels, two of which are in
flood plains, the third, our upper level, offers electric, water and sewer
connections, for your recreational needs. The campground uses over 25
acres and is bordered by State Road 25, the Wabash River and private
property on each side.
Each year we work on improving the facilities,
offering more services, and have wireless Internet
access for our guest.
Our lower section is considered primitive and we
do not allow large RV's (or the use of generators) in the area. Campers in
tents do not want to hear a generator running all the time! The lower
roads are also narrower and do not allow turning radiuses required by most
RV's. There is potable water available at a public water station that can
be carted to your site. There is a smaller play set for the kids to enjoy
and almost 1500 ft. of river bank to try and catch the "Big One". Our boat
ramp is a little steep, but has been used for many years.
The middle section is our electric only section,
it has water available in the area, but not directly on the campsite. This
area has a maximum camper size of no longer than 24 ft. (we do have 2
sites that can accommodate up to 30 ft, but turns may take some experience
The upper section is out of the flood plains
(same elevation as the Lafayette Courthouse) and has the majority of the
services. the swimming pool, recreation room, restrooms and showers along
with a larger playground is only a short walk from most sites.
Our objective was to create a fun place to visit
with some modern amenities in an old fashion camping environment, for
short term get-a-ways and we offer three (3) categories of camping and
four (4) types of camp sites. The categories are:
||For campers to come enjoy the
facilities and activities for up to 2 weeks, (1 week for tent
camping) generally for weekends
and vacations. (we can only allow short term accomodations.
||For campers to place their
Recreational Vehicle for the "season" to use on weekends and
vacations without having to tow (or drive) their unit. Our seasonal
guests maintain their own campsite and are allowed to create a more
stable environment for their camping pleasures. We only offer
electric/water OR Full Hook-up sites for seasonal camping.
||For the use of longer term
stays and "living" in the camper on a daily basis. Generally rented
to specialized workers wanting to get away from the hassle of moving
in and out of hotel rooms and assist them in accommodations without
annual leases requirements by landlords of rental properties.
we only offer Full Hook-up type sites for monthly camping and
require each unit be "self-contained" meaning they have their own
restroom and shower.
The Site types include:
||The primitive sites are each
numbered and were created larger to allow greater distance between
||Has 20/30 amp electric for
each campsite for the convenience of plugging in that coffee pot,
lights and to provide power for smaller RV's as well as our tenting
guests. These sites are mostly grassy areas and a little closer
together due to the power line distances and voltage drops.
|Electric & Water
||Has 30 amp electric for each
campsite for the convenience of plugging in that coffee pot, lights
and to provide power for smaller RV's as well as our tenting guests.
These sites are mostly grassy areas and a little closer together due
to the power line distances and voltage drops. See the camp map for
locations and site descriptions.
||All of our Full hook up sites
have gravel parking and grassy areas. As some are Pull-thru type
sites, most are back-in, each has a separate sewer connection, water
and electricity. Our FHU sites offer 20/30/50 amp plug receptacles.
| All of our
sites have a picnic table and a designated fire pit. (no grilles or
grates) DO NOT MOVE ANY FIRE PIT - See manager for a portable fire
pit if available.
Since our purchase, we have made many
improvements throughout the property. The first task was to clean up the
property. Over the years, previous visitors would dump trash and other
debris in remote, weedy areas. As our plans included clearing out the tall
weeds to reduce mosquitoes and other "varmints", we had to clean out all
the old debris.
The next step was to upgrade the wiring, back in
the sixties, a deluxe camper was a pop-up with lights! Many of the RV's
today have all the comforts of home and require more power to operate
their many features. Due to power supply and distances, we were only able
to bring in 50 amp service to certain areas. All of our sites have 30 amp
connections, sixteen (16) have 20/30/50 amp and sixteen have 20/30 amp
service connections. We will only allow RV's with 50amp service to park in
a site with a 50amp connection regardless if your unit will operate on 30
amps. This is due to the campground wiring, we have had many 50 amp units
destroy the 30 amp electrical plugs.
We have also added gravel to the lower sections
to make travel a little easier. Also upon clearing some areas of the
campground, we established "designated" campsites, numbering each site.
This would enable us an accurate inventory of campsites and eliminate the
chances of "over-booking" the facility.
The campground takes pride with the addition of
weekend activities throughout the season. (April 1 to Nov. 1) and urge
campers to participate. We spend many hours implementing the various
activities and try to offer something to appeal to the many various guests
we see each year. Take a look at our
and you're sure to find something that you will enjoy.
Our facilities include a recreation room with
video games, pool tables and a snack bar (mostly weekends), a swimming
pool, 2 playgrounds, hiking trails, horseshoe courts, ladder golf,
basketball, volleyball court as well as propane sales and the convenience
of a gas station at the entrance. We are located walking distance to the
Americus Restaurant, Camel Crossing Pizza King (both have bars) and the
Marathon gas station/mini-mart
that not only offers fuel but many convenience store items at reasonable
