This park has potential but needs some work. Wifi was good. The sites and road both need fresh gravel. Bathhouse very clean but showers lack pressure (unless you like scalding water). Picnic tables need replacing. Staff (the one we saw) pleasant and accommodating, however more staff is required to ensure rules are followed (unattended dogs and fires, general site messiness, etc.) Bluffton is a small, quiet town. I would probably stay at the nearby state park instead of this KOA. We camped at Bluffton/Fort Wayne South KOA in a Travel Trailer.

This is a pretty flat surfaced KOA. Many sites are pull-through. Roads are gravel, dirt (and can be dusty). Sites are normal length with grass/weeds in between. Each site has an (older) picnic table and a fire ring. There are tall, skinny trees for some shade. Not too much visible "staff.". We were not led to our site, in fact we walked it first just to make sure of the route. The staff in the office was one woman who while friendly, offered no further information for you other then take your money and draw on your map where your site is. We did talk to a man who appears to be a workamper, but again none were very visible. There is NO cable, but our antenna pulled up several channels that worked great. Those with satellite may have trouble getting through the trees. WiFi does NOT exist. I attempted signing on several times to no avail. Apparently, there are no owners on site, in fact the KOA is owned/operated by an investment company out of Utah. A truck/5'er came in late one afternoon and caught a landscaping rock under their 5'er (no damage), but it pulled the big rock into the road. That rock stayed there for days. If it's still there when we leave, hubster will have to move it himself. :( We camped at Bluffton/Fort Wayne South KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

The entrance road, interior roads and sites are gravel. Well graded while we were there. The sites are some of the most level we've encountered. almost all sites are pull through. Staff was very friendly and guided us to our site. The pool is heated and well maintained. Excellent Verizon service. We had a site that allowed Direct TV access. The showers and restrooms were extremely well maintained. There is a nice dog park. We camped at Bluffton/Fort Wayne South KOA in a Motorhome.

50 amp was good, good water pressure, nice shaded site. Downside was very dusty road going into the campground. Grass/dirt site, no cable and the directions could be a little better. This campground is a $25 park at best. We camped at Bluffton/Fort Wayne South KOA in a Motorhome.

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.
