This is a beautiful, well-maintained campground with courteous, responsive staff. We paid the listed rate for the regular pull-trough sites (premium sites are available), but received a free night on their current "stay 3-get a free 4th night" special. Free cable offerings were excellent. WiFi was readily available but of average speed. The restrooms have been newly redone with ceramic tile and upgraded fixtures. The price is quite reasonable for a popular destination area and with the amenities included. We will gladly return.

The campground was clean, and visibly well maintained. The one-night discount sites are grassy back-ins on a hill near to the office. The sites are fairly level. We paid the Passport America rate far a Water/Electric/Sewer site.

This is a clean, well maintained campground with moderate width but generous length sites. Office and workcamper staff were friendly and helpful, and interested in solving potential problems. The campground does not take reservations, and had no Water/Electric/Sewer sites available when we arrived seeking such a site for a 5 day stay. The office worker told us that a number would be available the next day, if we wished a Water/Electric-only site for the night, and could move to the desired type of site the following day. Problem solved. The park is near to most Shipshewana attractions. Our only caveat about the park involves their WiFi setup. The 1st 30 minutes each day (starting and continuing from your 1st log-on of the day) is free. After that one faces a $3 daily or $8 for 3-day charge. This is a major irritant in an age where the majority of campgrounds offer a form of free internet connection. In fact, we went to breakfast each day at McDonald's to use their free internet....passing local eateries miles closer to the park to do so.

Mildly rustic setting, but extremely well maintained campground. Programs and trail rides appear thoughtfully organized and executed. Close enough to Gettysburg to have access to historic sites without being in the midst of suburbia. On our "we will return" list.

We paid the Good Sam rate. This former KOA park appears tired and very worn, with much deferred maintenance. Just after we signed in, two people (a male and a female) came to the office to report a lack of hot water in the shower rooms. Office person was attempting to find someone to work on the problem. We were charged for cable, but it simply was not working anywhere in our end of the park. After being assigned our site, we were told WiFi probably wouldn't reach that end of the park, but that the lounge was open 24/7 and that it would function there. We apparently did have one of the few level sites in the park. We believe this park is definitely not worth 50 percent of their charged rate, and we will not return.

We paid the Good Sam rate. Pro: The sites are large, the staff friendly and helpful with information. Generally, the park seemed well maintained. Con: Whoever engineered the sewer connections had 40-foot motorhomes with far rear dump valves in mind. My 23-foot travel trailer would have required a 30-foot sewer hose to reach the sewer line. The park felt barely in use, with few others here. This former KOA felt deserted.

We paid the Passport America rate. The campground's full name doesn't appear at the entrance; just "RV PARK", and "$25 a night", and "Good Sam". The sites are large, level, and clean. Catch-and-release fishing is free at the large pond. Wi-Fi is fast and free, and all hookups worked well. The long-bearded owner seemed very laid-back. As we arrived, he was leaving in his pickup, and paused to tell us, "Pick the spot you like best, and I'll catch up with you when I get back." This was a great overnight stop, and would also be an excellent place to simply kick back and read some novels. It is, however, far from any stores or service locations.

We paid the Passport America rate. NOTE: Although PA is available Monday through Thursday of the week, one may only have the discount rate for two days. This is a clean, well-managed, quiet campground with a large pond, level sites, and free WiFi. The office and store staff are courteous and friendly. We will gladly return again.

We paid the Good Sam rate. This is a clean, well landscaped campground with large, mostly pull-through sites. It is on a Civil War battlefield. The park is noticeably quiet, with an absence of road noise. The office staff are friendly and helpful, providing several handouts and directions to local attractions, services, and shopping. It is a fine, convenient location to base camp while enjoying the Chattanooga area.

We paid the Passport America rate for our site at this distinctly no-frills campground. The park has easy access from Interstate 40. The office staff was pleasant. The campground has gravel roads. Four blacktopped, 30 amp pull-through sites and a few additional 50-amp pull-through sites were readily available. Most of the other sites appeared to be occupied on a seasonal basis. The bathroom facilities were hard-used but clean. The free Wi-Fi was so slow one simply quit trying to use it. Overall, this is a decent over-nite stop at a bargain-basement price.

We paid the Good Sam rate. This park is literally on a mountain top. One reaches it via a paved, curvy, and somewhat steep 1/4 mile private road. The sites are level, well-drained, and have a great view. The Wi-Fi is free and fast. The temperature atop the mountain is 10 degrees cooler than Hot Springs (where it hit 104 during our stay). We found the hostess/manager to be a charming and informative character. This is a great campground.

We paid the Good Sam rate. The park is a study in contrasts. It boasts a beautiful location, good layout, and is well shaded by many large trees. The teenager who checked us in and took us to our site was pleasant and efficient. But there is a dark side. The Wi-Fi was free and functioned. The office porch is filthy, and the office is dark and smells. the laundry room is semi-clean at best, although the broken machines from 2 years ago have been replaced by functioning well-used ones. The pre-teen manager's son roars about the campground on a quad-runner, stirring up dust from the gravel roadway. Still, it is an acceptable place to overnight, or to base camp while touring Van Buren or Fort Smith.

We paid the Passport America rate. This park has large, pull-through sites in a largely graveled area. It is clean and well laid out. Part of the staff are friendly. Six vintage restored travel trailers are available for nightly rental. The park location offers easy access to the old Route 66 highway eastward through Albuquerque. This park is close to Interstate I-40, and the road noise may bother some. We will gladly return again.

Date of Stay:

We paid a discounted rate based on our Passport America affiliation. Access to and from the interstate is quick and simple. Staff are friendly and helpful. One is escorted to one's site. Interior roads are paved, and sites are level. A free shuttle to a local steakhouse is available. The campground provides free coffee and donuts for campers from 8-9 each morning. A water park is directly adjacent to the campground entrance.

Date of Stay:

This is a decent value for an overnight stop. It is a convenient on/off from the interstate. Wi-Fi is available at the office building in the laundry room. Although the RV sites are adjacent to semi-permanent mobile homes, the park is quiet, shady, and clean.
