Great campground slightly off the beaten path (I-69) but worth the extra miles. Very quiet park large pull through sites. Near small city with several locations to eat. Shaded sites with a lot of space between them. Activities on the weekends for children. We will use this park again for sure. We camped at Bluffton/Fort Wayne South KOA in a Motorhome.

This is a nice quiet park just on the outskirts of Bluffton. The roads and sites are gravel, reasonably level and many of the sites are nicely to very shaded. The sites are placed with lots of grassy space between. Each site has a picnic table and fire ring. The staff are very friendly and helpful. There are a couple of dog walks and a new fenced dog area will be ready for the 2015 season. The ATT and Verizon signals are very strong (5 bars), you can see the towers across the farm field. Even though the KOA flyer lists television stations, on our site, we could not pick up any channels due to the trees blocking signals. The park wifi is free, but slow and easily disconnects. There is NO cable TV at the park as some reviewers have indicated. The park workampers host a pancake breakfast every Sunday. Bluffton has all of the basics; groceries, hardware stores and restaurants. For big rigs, the directions on the park website are problematic. Do NOT follow the directions to use Wabash/Bond streets, but take IN 124 around town so as to approach the park on Lancaster St. from the west. We camped at Bluffton/Fort Wayne South KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We first stayed here two years ago when the owners were then relatively new. While it was nice then, we had hopes for continued improvement. It is still a nice campground but did not see much improvement and some back-sliding. We like shady sites and while there are a lot of trees they are not filled out so do not give as much shade as expected. The roads and sites are gravel with many large stones making them rough. We saw evidence of lack of daily maintenance. For example, broken water balloons on the sidewalk never swept up during our five-day stay, and the pool was somewhat dirty and litter filled. The Wi-Fi was slow with less than good connection even right at the office. On the plus side the bathrooms and showers were always very clean; the showers are some of the best we have ever experienced in a campground. The TV reception was adequate. The campground is quiet. On our last night there we had a rainstorm. While the campground is flat, some sites had a lot of water standing in them - including ours - and others not. We will likely use this campground again. We camped at Bluffton/Fort Wayne South KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Received KOA discount. Graveled treed lots with shade. Heated pool, great playground. We had plenty of room in our site and we didn't have to disconnect our toad (always a plus). Pull through site with full hookups. Our site also had a picnic table. Wifi signal was good and was at no extra charge. Krogers within 10 min, walmart within 15 min. We stayed here in our 40' motorhome and would stay again. We camped at Bluffton/Fort Wayne South KOA in a Motorhome.

This is an excellent, family friendly park. Lots of options as to sites with trees and shade or no trees, out in the open. Staff is very friendly and will go beyond to make it an enjoyable stay. Bathrooms and showers are immaculate as they are checked multiple times during the day. There is a pool, playground, and a dog park that is planned for completion later this summer. Will definitely return if we are in the area. We camped at Bluffton/Fort Wayne South KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice, quiet campground. Large, level sites. Friendly people. Very nice heated pool. Fifty amp service yielded 115 volts. Good, free Wi-Fi. Clean, modern bathrooms and showers. I thought the laundry was expensive at $2.25 for the washer, $1.75 for the dryer (they have 4 of each) until I checked out a local laundromat. They wanted $2.40 for a washer. So I did all my wash at the campground. Billy Ann's Supper Pub on Main St. in Bluffton is very good. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at Bluffton/Fort Wayne South KOA in a Motorhome.

Great place. Very well cared for, although obvious they don't get to capacity often as grass is growing in some of the gravel sites. But, staff was very friendly, and it's so obvious they want to make this place a success. It's a little off the beaten path (12 miles from I-69), but in my book, worth the trip. Sites are very long (didn't need to unhook), and very flat. Grass looks like something you find at a residence. Very clean and appealing office area. Didn't visit bathrooms. Pool very well cared for. Very quiet. Hope this place is successful!!! We camped at Bluffton/Fort Wayne South KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Park is under new management and is not open all year, is closing Nov 4/12 for the winter. Facilities worked well, Wi-Fi only works at the office, not at your site. Staff were friendly, site was level and quiet. We would stay here again. We camped at Bluffton/Fort Wayne South KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a newer campground with newer owners (purchased in March 2012). It has been carved out of a dense woods so the trees that remain are tall but not filled out. Some trees are dying because of the trauma of putting in utilities. Some of the sites are still a little rough. Bathrooms very clean. Buildings are new. Has nice tenting area. The park was not very busy when we were there. It is off the beaten path. The owners worked hard to find us the shady spot we wanted. We camped at Bluffton/Fort Wayne South KOA in a Travel Trailer.

This web site has the KOA campground shown as being closed. This is not true. I talked to the lady and was going to stay there but we ran into severe weather and had to pull off about 30 miles short at Gas city. (I should have kept driving in the rain). The girl on the phone was very friendly and assured me they were open for business and no need to make a reservation this time of the year.

Price paid is with KOA card and 4 adults. The park is 13.5 miles off the highway. Our 50 amp, shaded lot was level and very large. There is a nice pool, playground, and limited articles in the store. The restrooms and showers were very clean, and there was a better than average amount of wood in the bundle they sold. No cable is available, but there are some air network stations. Wi-Fi connection was in and out and may have been better closer to the office. Owners seem eager to please. We camped at Bluffton/Fort Wayne South KOA in a Fifth Wheel.
