I’ve spent a great deal of time in Indiana over the years (I grew up there), and then returned in my RV in Summer/Fall 2010. I traveled through a high percentage of northern and central Indiana on that trip, but did not go to the southern part of the state.
I also drove from Chicago to Indianapolis and then back in September 2011.
Indiana has a cloud of unpleasant haze hanging over it. I believe it is related to its agricultural production (corn and soybeans).
Lakes in Indiana almost all feel particularly unpleasant to me, which is unfortunate since almost all the campgrounds in Indiana are located next to lakes. The fact that these campgrounds tend to fog for mosquitoes is another negative aspect of them.
Though not great, Indianapolis actually felt better to me than the rest of the state. (3-FAIR)
Indiana Dunes (near Lake Michigan) also felt somewhat better than the rest of the state, but not so good that it would be worth purposely seeking out. (3-FAIR)
The southern part of Indiana is on the Ohio River and I believe the river is a big problem. Parts of sourthern Indiana are also near all the pollution in Louisville, KY. I don't have a personal rating for it. Maybe next time I go, I will try to judge the air quality and other parts.

I spent a couple of days in Indiana in August 2014. I spent the night at the KOA in Terre Haute, then drove to Indianapolis. That KOA was not awful in terms of outdoor air, though I was disappointed that the cabin that was available felt yucky to me (mothballs maybe?). In general, Indiana is not an easy state for me. 2 = Poor.
