Small county park campground located conveniently in Fort Wayne. Roads are paved and sites are gravel. No sewer at sites or cable and heavy tree cover prevented use of satellite but fortunately could at least get good reception to local TV stations. Some sites water was supplied via a garden hose. OK for 1-2 night stay but nothing special about park other than convenience to Fort Wayne and low nightly rate. There is a dump station right outside the campground. We camped at Johnny Appleseed Campground in a Motorhome.

The best thing about this park is the convenience of being right in the middle of the city, while still in a park setting. Most of the city noise is very muted, because of the trees. The park is small and a little cramped, but a few of the sites have a little more space and privacy. Water connections are shared. The cell and TV service are excellent. There is free Wi-Fi, but it is very poor quality. The customer service was superb. If you like to bike, you will love this park - there are over 70 miles of trails throughout the city along the rivers, and they go right through this park. We camped at Johnny Appleseed Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

There is a Kroeger's less than a mile away, and several restaurants and a mall not much further than that. You can take the bike/walking trail to the old fort, which is about 2 miles away.

We stay here every time we visit Fort Wayne for genealogy research at the Allen County Library. It is extremely convenient to downtown and is on one of the bike/walking trails from which you can connect to the great network of trails. It is also convenient to the interstate and restaurants, etc; a Costco is just a short distance away. Satellite access is not possible from every site because of the trees, so check that if it is important to you. The hosts are friendly and give excellent service. Overall, a great value and place to stay in the area. We camped at Johnny Appleseed Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Nearby Costco, Walmart, Krogers. Visit the Cookie Cottage for some great local-baked cookies.

Weather was poor, but campground roads are all blacktop, sites are gravel, some standing water, but no problems. Great location for zoo, genealogical library, baseball games and shopping. Very clean and well maintained for a city park. Almost impossible to use satellite and TV reception (local) is inconsistent. 2 washer/dryer units available in restroom/shower building. Weekly rate available for 108.00 (one night free). Campground is closed for Johnny Appleseed festival in September, 2nd and 3rd week. We camped at Johnny Appleseed Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Shipshewana flea market, Auburn car museums, RV factories and RV salvage/surplus stores. Not far off I 69 and US 30 and US 24. Endless variety of restaurants from fast food to elegant dining. Lots of festivals during June, July and August.

City operated. Hosts are long term and excellent. Campground is heavily wooded. Located across the street from a river that offers fishing. Sites are mostly level. We camped at Johnny Appleseed Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Next to the Fort Wayne Convention Center. Nearby shopping.

Easy park to get to. Paved roads. We had a great pull through asphalt site. I think only one. Convenient to stores, bike paths. Good find for a one night stay. We camped at Johnny Appleseed Campground in a Motorhome.

Great city owned campground along the St Joseph River. Miles of trails, walking distance to little organic/health food market and other food. Best kept secret, $108 for 7 day stay. Very helpful camp hosts. Close to downtown. We camped at Johnny Appleseed Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice city-owned park that is convenient to about anything in Fort Wayne. Located about 8 minutes from downtown. The St. Joe river is across the street and is about 100 yards away. An adjacent city walking/biking trail allows easy access to Fort Wayne's 60+ mile trail network. The park is clean and the hosts are friendly and conscientious. Be sure you have enough water hose in case you get a site where the shared water connection is distant (50' should be enough). No sewer hookups, but pump service is available 7 days a week for $10 per service, or you can move the RV to the free dump station. Shower, restroom, and laundry facilities are clean and accessible by code only. Wi-Fi worked reasonably well, but it does bog down at times and outlying sites can have a rather weak signal. If that is important to you, check the Wi-Fi reception before you set things up, in case you want to move to another site. Overall this is a nice place to stay and we'd stay here anytime we visit Fort Wayne. We camped at Johnny Appleseed Campground in a Motorhome.

Rate is without a discount and is quite reasonable. Sites have electric and water. Nice park that is quiet, well maintained, and convenient to downtown Fort Wayne and the Allen County Public Library (for genealogy researchers). We enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay again. The park road is paved with gravel camp sites. Electrical post placement is a bit haphazard and not always on the correct side. The sites share water connections that can be close, or as much as 50' from the site. Most sites are level, but several are not. Some sites have good space between each other, but some are very close together and at odd angles. In spite of these quirks, this is a good place to stay, especially considering the $18 rate. We stayed in site #1. We camped at Johnny Appleseed Campground in a Motorhome.

A really nice park close to everything; mall, restaurants, downtown, groceries, fuel, etc. Friendly hosts. Bike & walking trail that go on for miles. No sewer hook up, but a pump truck will come to your site for $10. Or, you can go to dump station no charge. All gravel sites and driveway, but driveway is getting paved next week. We camped at Johnny Appleseed Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

A quaint county park with friendly, efficient host. Extremely cheap price, spotless bathrooms and laundry room. Some nice shady spots. We enjoyed riding our bikes on the paved river trails that began right at the campsite. Only downside was how RV sites and tent sites are mixed. We camped at Johnny Appleseed Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a pretty little county park with friendly hosts. It is close to absolutely everything, including beautiful bike trails. Our site was a little too shaded, and we couldn't get the satellite to work, but the local stations came in great with the antenna. Cable and sewer would be a nice addition and are the only reason I didn't rate it a 10. We camped at Johnny Appleseed Campground in a Motorhome.

Cute, cute campground! I recommend it to anyone. I could not find one fault with anything there. Restrooms were spotless and showers were hot and cleaner than my own at home. Plenty to see and do close by. The river is across the road. Ball diamonds in walking distance and there is the grave of Johnny Appleseed to see! The host was so friendly and helpful. It is very close to the college and would be a great place to stay if you are in town for a few days. We camped at Johnny Appleseed Campground in a Motorhome.

This was a small, quiet campground in the middle of a large city. There were many pleasant walking/biking paths and a grocery store within walking distance. There was a coin operated laundry room available. We camped at Johnny Appleseed Campground in a Motorhome.

Great location in Fort Wayne-next to the Coliseum. This city park has free WiFi, gravel sites, laundry room, and sites with water & 30/50amp electric. A dump is available or a pumper truck ($10) can be reserved. Not all sites are level. Few sites offer satellite signal access because of trees, but local TV stations offer a strong signal. Camp hosts are extremely helpful and friendly. Visit Johnny Appleseed's gravesite in the park. We camped at Johnny Appleseed Campground in a Motorhome.
