Easy access to and in the park with our larger RV. Woman who checked us in couldn't have been nicer. Well kept park but the price is steep given no pool and it's basically a full hookup gravel parking lot. Like others have noted, park nearly empty but we were surrounded by a convoy of traveling Canadians. They were courteous and polite but we felt out of place in the middle of their group. A space or two in between would have been welcome. I would stay here again, but next time in the area will probably look for someplace priced more in relation to the facilities provided. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here for a week while attending our manufacturer's annual Rally. The first thing we noted is the Manager and her staff are simply wonderful, right from check-in. No request was too much bother for them. Internal roads and sites are gravel, with roads easily navigated by big rigs and the sites reasonably level. Services are well located and good quality. They have a few trees between sites, but nothing to impede satellite reception. Excellent dog areas, with one being a long grass lawn where I could actually run our GSD. Facilities also excellent with a covered area with tables in addition to a building. We were the smaller rally so in the evening they let us block off one of the roads and set up tables and a fire ring. They even have a RV & truck wash station at the entrance. Only downside is it is a dry county, so stock up with refreshments before arrival. We will definitely return. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a clean, well-kept campground that is well located to access all of the activities and attractions of Shipshewana. The sites are gravel and level, the spacing and grass are quite good, there and some small trees between the pull through sites. There are several pavilions and good green spaces. We enjoyed our stay and would come again. However, campers should note that this is not a self contained facility...the activities are in the town. So the park has no playground, no pool, no store, to propane refill. It does have a nice dog walk and it is next to a farm with beautiful horses and an electric fence. The flea market is less than a mile away and probably faster to walk to than to drive on a Tuesday and Wednesday. If you are coming to Shipsewana and want to be close to town in a relatively quiet campground, this is your best choice. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very clean and well maintained park. Most of the lots are pull-thru and are big rig friendly, there are some back-in sites around the edge of the park. The sites are level well packed gravel with grass between them and a picnic table. They average at least 20' of grass between the gravel pads. We liked the park and area so well we stayed an extra two days. Wifi is not the fastest, but Verizon has an excellent signal here and the park is satellite friendly. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice park in the middle of town, but also quite expensive for what you get. A gravel site very close to your neighbor on both sides. It does have free Wi-Fi, but we did not get fast service on that. Sites 17 and 18 have a bit of an incline so keep that in mind if you want a level site, we were there during a rally so we had to take what they had left. The park is big rig friendly, the utilities worked well. The cons: the workers on golf carts fly through the graveled roads kicking up quite a bit of dust, but were very friendly and helpful. Not much green space for such a wonderful area. That said, if you just want a place to park to tour the area, this is the best ticket in town in our opinion. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
On the whole, this is a pretty good campground but we had a site in an unfortunate location, right next to the picnic shelter. The folks who were attending an RV rally had no idea how to respect other people's sites. They kept walking through our site and others between the pavilion and their trailers. The park should inform rallies they shouldn't invade other people's sites. The park wifi was worthless. The location was excellent, Verizon internet and phone good. We had good Dish RV reception. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We enjoyed most things about this campground in beautiful Shipshewana. Great location, good voltage, good water pressure, friendly office staff, and long pull-thru sites. Wifi was unusable for us so we had to use data during our entire stay. Now for the negative. The old lawnmower guy needs to chill. Mowing the same areas every other day does nothing for the grass or peacefulness of the campground. When not mowing, he'd ride around the park just looking at things. The mower could be heard all over the campground and really destroyed this otherwise peaceful setting. My rating of "6" comes from unusable wifi but mostly because of mower man. Not sure we'd stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice facility easy access and close to all the shopping in Shipshewana. Lots of Amish buggies passing. First stay here. Not associated with the North campground any more. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very nice folks in the office. Laundry facility extremely nice and restrooms very clean. Sites are average in size and can accommodate any size. Very convenient to shopping. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a very nice park. The park staff is outstanding and the location is good. It is within walking distance of downtown Shipshewana. All utilities worked well. We will definitely return here. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Sites were very level, gravel. People were very friendly and helpful. Bath house need to be updated but were clean and neat. Showers were large but the only thing they had was a water valve that is preset so you cannot adjust the temperature. The temperature was about 102 degrees. You had to keep pushing to keep the water on. It went off every 10 seconds. I talked to the office they said parts were on order to get them to adjust longer. I would stay there again. Nice looking park and very affordable. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Some roads are paved, some gravel. Sites are narrow. Verizon cell and hotspot worked well. No trees so rooftop dish worked good. Over the air TV stations worked well, too. We made a reservation and had no troubles. Grass was cut and campground well kept. CG is very close to downtown Shipshewana (about 1 mile). A bit pricy, but maybe due to location. Utilities all worked well. Low score due to narrow sites and price. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate paid reflects a week's stay which included a free night. We were here for a rally. Our site was okay, but not flat and we had a mud puddle next to our hookups. We were right next to one of their Wi-Fi antennas which apparently put us in a dead zone as we couldn't get their Wi-Fi (you only get 30 minutes per 24 hours!) to work and it killed our hotspot. The rally used a picnic pavilion and an enclosed building and both were very functional. Lots of nice dog walking areas. This is a handy location for visiting Shipshewana, Middlebury and Elkhart. There's an excellent bicycle trail, Pumpkin Vine Trail, that winds through Amish farms and goes all the way to Elkhart and the trail head is an easy mile or so ride from the campground. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here for a week while attending a rally. The campground did a fairly good job keeping everyone together. The grounds could have been mowed and dressed up a little better before everyone arrived. Gravel sites were fairly level and hook ups worked well. Laundry, showers and bathrooms were extremely clean and worked well. Overall a nice campground and we will return. Would have given higher rating if there was a pool and grounds maintained better. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
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. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park is all about location being close to downtown Shipshewana. No shade and not "pretty". No activities, no pool. Bath house clean. Campground clean. Staff nice. Pay for internet. No cable. We would stay here again only because of it's proximity to town, although it's still too far to walk. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Unique campground to say the least. Yes, there is an honor system here. There is a fence with envelopes to take that has information to fill out inside. Once filled out, you stuff the envelope in a locked box and pretty much chose whatever site wanted. The water hook-ups are shared, and it is wise to have a splitter (Y) for sharing faucets. It is a little gnarly to drive around in the campground with some good dips and some sharp turns for large rigs. The site for the most part are level and the campground is immediately adjacent to the huge Flea Market. We stayed 2 nights and didn't have any problems with anything. There are no trees to be found so know that in advance. The area is terrific and the restaurants are everywhere! Great Amish shops with great quality stuff, including furniture, cheeses, and meats. We would return again when in the area. Only 30 miles east of Elkhart if you are in need of factory service. And then there is the RV Hall of Fame that is a must for RVers to see and support. Great area that we come back to over and over. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Our stay was for only two days. The park has a lot of pull through sites. They are crushed rock grass covered. However, they are level. The grass at the sites needed to be mowed. The internet is awful. We were not able to login. Beautiful country side and friendly people. We will return again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is our RV Park of choice for visiting Shipshewana. Sites are decent, but close together. Restroom and laundry room are clean. Our sons did not like the showers because they are the push button/non-adjustable temperature type. Price is a little high for what you get, but the location is good. No discounts offered, but we do now have a free night banked from our 6-night stay. We'll be back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This campground limits you to 30 minutes of internet usage in a 24 hour period. Once you disconnect, you are prohibited from connecting for the next 24 hours even if you only used 5 minutes the first time. How cheap can a campground get ? Woodalls does not show that there is limited usage of the internet. Other than the internet, the park was very good. The sites were very level, lots of width between the sites, and generally, the park was well maintained. The campground is very close to the huge flea market and to the attractions in this small town where the Amish is the main attraction. We parked the motorhome here and drove to the Newmar plant where we took a plant tour: a short drive from this campground. There was no cable at the sites but the laundry room had a TV, which we did not use. Could not get any reception using the motorhome antenna. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Campground is close to most things is the area. Host was friendly and helpful. Due to hot weather, the campground does not look as nice as we have seen here in many years ago. Would have rated an 8 if they did not limit free usage of the internet to 1/2 hour per day. Seems a bit cheap of owner when you consider most campgrounds in this price range have no time limit. Rating beyond an 8 seems high considering no pool and other amenities. Will return in the future. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice park and extremely clean wash house facility. Showers were ceramic tile floor to ceiling and very clean. Sites are on the smaller size but not a problem as the sites around us were not being used. Could use more shade trees. Large rig no problem as there were several 42' and larger motor homes there. No permanent sites. ground very clean and located very close to local attractions. Showers were the best public facility I have ever seen. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice clean RV park that is in the heart of Shipshewana and almost next door to the flea market. Very central to restaurants, shops etc. Lots of space and grass between sites which are quite wide and long. The showers, toilets and laundry facilities are very clean. The only minor annoyance is that the showers use a push button to start the water flow for about one or two minutes, and you have to keep pushing it. You can buy a RV/car wash permit for $4. This park is affiliated with the North RV park, but the North park is quite a way out of town. A must visit is to the Guggisberg Deutsch Kase Haus Cheese Factory, Yoder's Meat and Cheese store, and the Blue Gate restaurant. We also visited the Newmar RV plant for the tour and it is well worth a visit. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This a clean, well laid out park with reasonable space between sites. It is conveniently located near local interests. They include 1/2 hour a day Wi-Fi and expect a camper to pay for more. Using a credit card for $3 on line is a nuisance and a security risk. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park is large and accessible. The sites were clean as were the restrooms and showers. It is close to area attractions. I would not be willing to pay $40 again for 30 minutes of WiFi, no pool and in the off season. At a lower price, I would return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice campground with gravel roads and sites. Sites were level and grounds were very clean and well kept. Most trees are still small so there is not a lot of shade. However weather was very comfortable while we were in the area. Laundry facilities are very nice with clean washing machines and dryers. Each campsite has a light on the electric hookup. That was very helpful at night. Located almost in the middle of everything to do in Shipshewana, you can walk to a good many businesses. Staff was very helpful. No cable TV and very few channels were received with our roof top antenna. Internet service is very good, but is not free. Cost $20 for the week we were there. Cost is a little more than we normally pay, but it was nice to be so close to the things we wanted to do. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great location... close to flea market and downtown. Staff was very friendly. Easy in and out for a Big Rig. Very well maintained. The downfalls are that you have to pay for Wi-Fi, sites are quite tight (sitting area was barely wider than our awning)! No cable and very limited local channels on the aerial. No fire-pits on the sites, only a communal pit. Lacked garbage cans, and they don't recycle. But it is a very well maintained RV park. Area is a great place to visit! Go to the restaurant "Das Dutchman Essenhaus"... family style Amish dinner. Very good! Downtown Bakery called the "Bread Box Bakery"... yum! We camped here in a Motorhome.
There isn't anything fancy about this park, but it is a good place to stay if you are visiting the area. The roads are packed gravel and easy to navigate. The sites are also packed gravel and the pull throughs are long and very level. Staff is quite helpful and very friendly. Only real negatives are no cable, and you have to pay for wi-fi. Close to the Flea Market and downtown. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
There is no better place to stay for a visit to the Amish community of Shipshewana. There is a giant flea market in Shipshewana every Tuesday and Wednesday and an interesting horse auction there on Fridays. Plenty to see and do for several days. The campground had nice sized, level, very long pull throughs. The Wi-Fi was excellent. The rest rooms and laundry were immaculate. The office staff were very helpful with all our concerns, and needs. The same owners also have another campground a few miles North of town and it is also very nice, has many trees and is well shaded. The camping cabins are spotless and nicely placed in a wooded area. There is a wonderful ice-cream stand on the property. We would definitely stay at either campground in the future. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Price includes electric and water in a pull through site that was level, with a grassy space. Well kept. We went because internet access was advertised. 15 minutes was free, then you had to pay and it was very poor reception. Man on the desk was an “I only work here” grump. Close to the Amish sites. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate given for a back-in. Pull through sites are $2 extra. Site was a gravel back-in and almost level. WiFi worked well, but after 15 minutes one must pay $4 a day for the service. Campground gave a us a $1 coupon towards the admission for the Menno-Hof museum. We camped here in a Motorhome.
My wife and I stay at this park for 2 days each summer in June. Very nice park, lots of great restaurants and a really nice laid back feeling with all of the horse drawn buggies. Nice staff and very clean park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The park is basically in the middle of town, as others have stated. That said it was still very quiet. The campground is nicely kept, and utilities worked as they should. If they would take out every other site, it would be more desirable. The neighbors door and picnic table opens up basically at your sewer connection, which we really dislike. Someone mentioned it is like a parking lot, and that is a good description. Another thing that we didn't care for, more than half the sites were empty and yet they piled everyone up on top of each other, with the sites so close, not much room to stretch out and relax. No campfires allowed, although they have one small ring (they call community fire pit) at the pavilion, but I think most were intimidated about using it. The WiFi costs extra if you want it. The office staff nice. All in all for the money if you want to just sight-see its okay, if you want the ambiance of a camp fire and a woodsy feel, try another campground. If we return, we may look elsewhere, but would not rule this one out if need be. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed at this park for two nights. Overall, we were pleased and would stay here again. The facilities were very neat and clean. The people were very friendly and helpful. Ample areas for dog walking. We loved being able to bike ride to the shops. We were not there during the flea market, but there are plenty of other shops to visit! The only negative I can think of is that the Wi-Fi service is not included in the nightly rate. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a good place to stay if you are in the area. We had to move from Shipshewanna North because our space was available for only one night. We found the north campground to be much more desireable: the south being little more than a parking lot. Beware the traffic on flea market days: there is a lot of time spent waiting in traffic. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We really enjoyed this campground and the town of Shipshewana. We initially stayed here to visit the RV Hall of Fame in Elkhart. But to our surprise this town had so much to do. The Amish Flea Market each week was fantastic. Only got halfway thru it. Lots of shops and loved seeing the Amish buggies all day. Everyone at RV park was wonderful and so friendly. The sites were big and spacious. Some with trees and some with out. This place too was peaceful. The only thing you heard on Sundays was the clip clop of the horses on the Amish buggies. I have told everyone about this RV park and cannot wait for them to enjoy it as much as we did. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A nice park, convenient to a lot of the attractions in Shipshewana. The park was clean, the staff friendly and the spaces were adequate. There was not much shade, but quiet. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great place to come! Super clean laundry & restrooms. We didn't give it a 10 only because of the advertised and told on phone WiFi "free"...what they don't say is, for the first 15 minutes then pay as you go, very inexpensive though. Level sites, no "seasonal" (live-ins) RVers and close to everything to visit in Shipshewana. Management very nice, lots of space between spots, really no bad spots here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The good news: This campground is convenient to the delighful town of Shipshewana, offers very long pull through sites, and has clean and neat facilities. The bad news: The roads become swamps when it rains, sites are not level, and most sites do not have enough gravel. Most importantly, this unpaved, muddy,second rate park, with unlevel sites, charges a ridiculous $4.00 per day for wi-fi, and you must sign on each and every day you are here. Stay in Elkhart or somewhere else. It ain't worth it. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is "THE" location for your visit to Shipshewana. A Short walk to restaurants or the comings and goings of the auctions and other activities in town. Big Pull thru's Clean bathrooms but the only bad thing was the showers are too hot for me! I just couldn't use them, but then again I do have a large Motor Home with a large shower. People were friendly and knowledgeable of the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This work campers here were Wonderful and Friendly. It was so relaxing, quiet and clean. It would be nice to have fire rings. And there isn't a lot for kids, but my kids enjoyed seeing how the Amish lived, taking buggy rides, and spending quiet time together and being in the country. There are plenty of parks and farm tours to keep young kids entertained. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We live about an hour from this park and had driven by and it looked very nice from the road. However, upon arrival with our 30' fiver with a single slide we discovered that it was grossly inadequate. There are no fire rings, but they couldn't possibly have them as you would burn down the unit next to you. I could not extend my slide as it would have been hitting the picnic table on the lot behind us. In other words the lots are very narrow. There is nothing for children at all. Also, we were made to feel very unwelcome with our Black Lab. And you have to pay to use the wifi. So, if you want to pull in and sleep. Good spot. If you are going to spend all of your time somewhere not here, good spot. If you want to "camp", terrible location. After much discussion I got a refund and we moved on for the weekend. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We camped here on Memorial Weekend. Arrived without reservations. Long pull throughs, easy access for big rigs. Nice laundry. Close to town, and all the Amish attractions in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The people were friendly and the campground was clean. We stayed in a pull-through site which was large enough for our 5th Wheel w/ 3 slides and our truck. We did not use the bathroom or showers. They give you 15 minutes free WiFi, then they charge a fee. This campground made a great base-camp for us while visiting the local attractions and touring a RV Factory. I would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very over priced campground. No trees and not much grass. You can get WIFI but you have to pay for it. It should be free for the price they charge. The staff was very nice and the park is convenient to the big flea market and most other businesses. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed in the new section. The trees are small, but they do have a good dog walk area with a place to dispose your dog's deposit. There are quite a few pull-thru sites available. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We will definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was a terrible place to camp. No trees, no shade, nothing for children to do at this campground, nothing here but a place to rest your head. I don't recommend this place to anyone. I won't return. North campground isn't much better: only have ice cream and a community pit that no one uses. Junky place to go. We camped here in a Tent.
[ 8 / 10 ]
Spotless restrooms and showers. Privacy is not the greatest for the showers. No activities
at the campgrouds. Access to the Amish stores and flea market is its biggest draw and all within walking distance. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate reflectsa group rate. Came here for a Rally. This was a good choice for our Rally because the sites are at angles making socializing easy. The pavilion had electricity for our Pot Luck dinner. Roads are gravel, sites gravel and grass. Electric is on the passenger side, water & sewer on the driver's side. An extra electric cord is advisable. Power & water were fine, Sprint MiFi & cell signal poor, good signal with roof mounted DirecTV SD satellite dish, no fire rings, WiFi is $3 a day. Employees are friendly, professional, and helpful without being intrusive. Can hear the clip-clop of the Amish buggies as they go by. Definitely big friendly, pull-thru sites are plenty long enough. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We have stayed here several times. The park is well maintained, and they have a friendly staff. Our site only had 30 amp, but that was not an issue for us. We enjoyed the convenience to the Amish attractions, shopping, and the RV Surplus businesses. National RV Appliance repair is a few hundred yards away. There is an ice cream shop on grounds. We had a small rally here in June, and we will come back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park with shady sites that are mostly level. Staff is very friendly. When I voiced concern about the tree problem mentioned in earlier reviews, they advised they were trimming limbs and when we arrived there was no problem with trees scratching the sides or top. Not all sites have full hook ups, and very few have 50 amp but in our 32 foot rig, this was no problem. There are a few pull throughs but the backin sites were easy to access. Our site was 32 and was very nice. If you have children you may want to stay in their south park which has more sites and amenities. I would rate this park a 9.5 just because of the lack of 50 amp service at all the sites, but we couldn't ask for a better place to stay and we will return. As an added bonus, there is an ice cream stand in the park that has frozen custard and ice cream: both of which are fabulous. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The staff at this campground are extremely friendly and very accommodating. They were very helpful with all sorts of local information. We were in site 27 which is close to the office and the restrooms. The showers and restrooms were extremely clean and very well maintained. The campground itself is also very well maintained. The interior roads were level but a bit on the narrow side. Our site was level, a bit narrow but was located between some huge spruce Christmas trees, which were delightful to view out our windows. The campground is very close to the highway but as a previous reviewer wrote, it is very pleasant to listen to clop, clop of the horses. We were not able to get any local TV reception with our antennae, but had no problem with satellite reception. Our Verizon cell phone had good reception also. My only negative is that the Wi-Fi was only free for 1/2 per day. As another reviewer wrote, for the site rate there should be free unlimited Wi-Fi, especially since there are no other amenities such as a pool. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is small and pretty. The staff were extremely nice. However, we got major scratches on our motor home when we drove out! The Blue Spruce trees were huge, and the road was not wide enough to make a proper turn to avoid the branches (for our 40' rig). If you have a large motorhome, I would avoid this park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a pretty little campground located next to Hwy. 20. The only time it was noisy was early in the morning. The rest of the time we enjoyed hearing the clop clop of the Amish horses and buggies passing by the campground. We had a pull through campsite, #48, that was easy enough to pull into but impossible to pull out of due to the very close proximity of big Spruce trees and a very narrow driveway and the 35' length of our rig. We had to back up to get out and had the campsites not been empty behind us, it would have been a challenge. This is a very handy location for visiting the many things to see and do in Shipshewana. We would stay here again but hopefully in a different site. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This campground was very convenient to be "up close and personal" to the flea market. No amenities, but for a place to camp within walking distance for the flea market it was the ideal spot. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice little RV park with lots of grass and Spruce trees. There is adequate space between sites and plenty of trees to provide shade. We were in a pull-through in the first row and we didn't experience any power problems that others have mentioned. Our power pedestal was not shared and the voltage was solid. Be sure to ask if you want a satellite friendly site since many of the sites are in the trees. We enjoyed our stay here as well as the culture and history of the surrounding area. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is our second time camping here and we like it a lot. Lots of small trees between the sites gives privacy but doesn't interfere with our satellite view. A little noisy since it is on the intersection of two state routes but it quiets down at night. Wi-Fi is free for 30 minutes a day and then there is a charge for over the 30 minutes. Close enough to Shipshewana for easy access but far enough from the town to give a rural feel. We will return here. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice quiet park but nothing for kids to do, not even a playground. Sites are tight and could be difficult to get into. Power posts are shared, and during a hot day the voltage dipped down to 106v. No fire rings either. They have a common area with a fire ring and firewood for a donation. Nice ice-cream stand in the campground and nice to hear the clip-clop of horses going down the road. Close to Shipshewana but their sister campground is in the town next to the flea market. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Quiet park, despite being close to an intersection. Very few people around on a weekday, as they all flock to the nearby flea market. Evenings are quiet as well. Large ornamental trees shield one site from another. There is a fee for Wi-Fi. Convenient to the nearby RV factories. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice location, well maintained park, but we had so many problems here that I would not recommend the place to anyone. Most problems were electrical, but were compounded by a lack of communication among park staff. Only 3 full hook up 50amp pull-through sites in the park, and the power pedestals are shared. The 50 connection goes to the first person to hook up, regardless of reservation. We had to move three times in two days. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great campground, very clean facilities, professional staff. It is a very quiet part of the Amish area of the state. Wi-Fi worked great, cabins were well kept. Have been here on a yearly basis and will return again. There is a community campfire ring that gives a closeness to all that stay here. Not much for kids to do, but there is a water park in town just a few miles away. Great place!!!! We camped here in a Campground Cabin.
We have been here many times and it is always pleasant and quiet. I will admit there is nothing for kids to do but, sometimes just relaxing is all we need. We will return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was a lovely park with pleasant enough help. There is nothing for children to do but for retirees was nice enough. Easy access into sites. Free coffee in the morning. Clip clop of horses and carriages offset the traffic noise. Very convenient to Shipshewana, Elkhart, Nappanee, Middlebury, etc. We would camp here again when visiting the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Clean and well maintained. Without the grand kids we didn't need a lot of entertainment features in CG. Ice cream stand made for nice dessert. Their occupancy is higher on the days when the "flea market" is open. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Disappointed, Management/Owner unprofessional, while the campground was adequately clean, water/sewer, the lots were small (40’ Motorhome), 30/50/amp service questionable. Disappointed in service form arriving until departure. Management/Owner was rude uncaring and their price did not reflect the service rendered. We asked for full refund and departed as quickly as we had setup camp. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I would not bring my family here again. The restrooms were not clean. The staff was not friendly. They certainly did not go out of their way to accommodate the needs of my family. The campground itself was very boring and bare. It would have been more exciting to sleep in the car. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
[ 8 / 10 ]
Very clean and friendly campground. Gravel roads and site pads. 4 miles from Shipshewana stores and Auction barn. Has a community campfire area with firewood. No other fire allowed. Great Ice Cream store in front of park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed at the North campground, much better than the South one which only has electric and water. Friendly staff, but no amenities other than an ice cream shop. It's about 5 miles from the flea market. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.

This park is well taken care of, and accommodates big rigs with no problem. Our pull-through site was long enough to park our 38 foot motorhome, and our car directly behind it, with room to spare. We camped here in a Motorhome.

We stayed at the "North" campgrounds. There is also a "South" unit. Very clean, friendly
campground. Gravel roads and site pads. Short distance (5 miles) from Shipshewana stores and Auction site. Restrooms/Showers are clean and require a "code"
to unlock. Community campfire area with firewood (none at sites). Great Ice Cream store in front of park. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Nice small campground in the heart of Indiana Amish country. Well kept, excellent staff, and well run. Small number of sites, but excellent size lots and sparkling clean amenities. We camped here in a camper.
Excellent spot to visit flea market. Self pay - no staff unless find someone at the flea market office. Busy on Mondays and Tuesdays due to market. Will give 7th night free, must contact office during business hours. Water hookups are shared between two sites - so a longer hose will likely be needed plus bring a Y to attach two hoses - one for you and one for your neighbor who did not bring a Y! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We only came here as we had service scheduled the next day to have a new air cooling unit installed. Hookups are side by side, but both sides. Shared electric on one side and shared water on the other. We only used electric so it was overpriced for that. Site was mucky, a couple were OK, but there are a lot that have a bit too much grade for our liking. It served its purpose, but we won't be back anytime soon. We will stay somewhere else and drive in the next time. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a decent campground to stay at and very close to many activities in Shipshewana. The park roads and sites are not very well defined and some are a little tight for big rigs. Free Wi-Fi is nice but there is a lack of park oversight. Some camper's dogs run lose and many pet owners don't clean up after them. Placement of some site utilities are a little inconvenient. There are no bath houses so you must be self-contained. After all is said, the rental is a little less than the other parks in the area which make it a good choice for an overnight or a short stay.

We stayed at the Shipshewana Trading Place RV Park, to attend the flea market with our two children. We found out that they do not take online reservations, and everything is based on the honor system for paying with cash. We were going to arrive on Tuesday morning, and attend the flea market; but decided to go a night in advance in case they book up as it is a first come first serve basis. For this, when we arrived at noon on a Monday, 60% of the park was already filled up. They allow people to come in and "hold" a spot with lawn chairs or hoses or what have you, without even paying, as these people wanted the "good spots." There are very limited, level spots to choose from, as there is only one row of about 10 spots that are actually flat and level. All of the others are on a hill. The water connections are also shared as there may be four or five water hook ups for 12 spots. So if you plan on staying here make sure you bring a Y connector for your water hook up. As we were not made aware of this, we could take the only spot that had water, which unfortunately was on such a steep incline that we could not even drop our trailer or level off in anyway. Another good thing to bring, would be an additional hose as you may have to extend them to a further water connection point. The area in general is fairly quiet, not much noise and is right at the flea market campgrounds, so is extremely accessible for this. There is a lot of foot traffic and people driving in and out. So for safety and security we locked everything up and left nothing outside unattended. For one of the "good" spots, arrive extremely early Monday morning for your own pickings. We would come back again as it is very reasonable, but would be better prepared if the owners made campers aware of these things. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Large clean park and facilities. Easy access for our motorhome and toad. We had a pull-through with full hookups. Close to area activities. Would have rated it higher if cost had been lower or if more amenities for the cost were offered. Our $40 was in the off-season, no pool available and 30 minutes of Wi-Fi allowed per day in a continuous block. More time wanted: $4 per day. Wouldn't stay again given the same terms. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Best deal in the area, close to the town of Shipshewana and on the grounds of the Shipshewana Flea Market. You must be self contained and the water hookups can require 50' of hose depending on the the direction you park on the campsite. There is no shower house or on site office. Registration is done at a drop box at the entrance to the campground. The sites can be un-level and some have potholes, but very few have these problems. This is our 4th trip here and will return again next year. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great place to stay at if visiting the flea market, if you are lucky enough to get a site. The problem is that most of the sites are taken up long term by vendors of the flea market leaving potential customers searching for a spot to overnight. WIFI is iffy at best. We arrived before noon on the second day of three flea market & got the last site available. There are shared power pedestals & voltage may be a little low. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We opted for the boondock area, as we are self-contained and just wanted a safe place to sleep overnight. Gentleman in the front-office was most helpful, guiding us to the location and inviting us to stay either in the full-service park ($33 for pull-through), or boondock area for free. We will visit (and pay) the Flea Market vendors in the morning. This place is clean, the developed sites are pretty level, so easy to stay "connected" for a pass-through visit. We have a large fifth wheel and large truck for TV; they accommodate any size RV. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
There are no restrooms or showers, no playground, no shade, and poor Wi-Fi; about the only thing this park has going for it is location. We would try for one of the other campgrounds if we go again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Back again, the grass has filled in and as before this is a no frills park situated in Shipshewana. We used a full hookup site which most are back to back pull throughs. There are no bath houses on the site as no restrooms, so being self contained is a must. Still the best deal in town. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Friends recommended this park over the others in town because of it’s proximity to the flea market. It’s on the grounds. We had a little difficulty finding the park. The address is listed as 345 N. Van Buren, but the entrance sign shown on the website is actually on W200N. The designers of the park layout have tried to maximize the sites in the available space, the sites are about 12’ apart. However, I’m not sure they ever used an RV. The utilities are arraigned very strangely. If the park was full I wouldn’t have enough water hose to reach the faucet that I think belongs to the site I’m parked in. There were no management types on site to guide us and payment is made by filling out the forms and leaving payment in a box near the entrance. No provision on the form for credit cards and no one answered the phone when I called. If there are restrooms and shower facilities I didn't see them. The park seems to be for fully self-contained units only. In spite of the above criticism, the park is quiet and as billed, close to most of the attractions of Shipshewana. In reading reviews of the other parks, this one is at least as good as those. I do like the fact that they take overnighters who don’t need utilities at a greatly reduced price and they don’t add fee for a third adult. We would probably stay here again if in the area.

Best place to stay and visit largest flea market in Indiana. Back in sites are $27 per day, pull through sites are the rate listed at $33 per day. Dry camp, without hookups, $12 per day back in, $18 per day pull through. No Reservations accepted, 1st come 1st served. Open April 15th through November 15th. Direct access to flea market via foot bridge over drive, much closer location to Shipshewana attractions than the two other RV parks here. No bath house, toilets or dump station, your RV must be self contained. The 900+ vendor flea market is open Tuesday and Wednesday, May through October. Will definitely return again.
