Very long level sites with hook ups just right. Good cable and Wi-Fi. Did not use bathrooms and showers. Staff was very helpful and pool was nice. Just a little pricy for an overnighter. Would look somewhere else if in area. We camped at South Bend / Elkhart North KOA in a Motorhome.

Very nice RV Park. Fairly level pull-through full hook-up sites in an extremely attractive tall pine wooded area. The owners and staff are very friendly and helpful. Well kept grounds. Close to shopping and services. We camped at South Bend / Elkhart North KOA in a Motorhome.

If you like brewpubs, check out Evil Czech Brewery and Public House in Mishawaka. Good selection of craft beers, interesting and tasty dishes, moderate prices.

This is just a quick update from our most recent visit in September. We still love this park but unfortunately booked during a Notre Dame home game. The park understandably was jam packed, noisier and full of smoke from all the campfires which make sleeping difficult. The other days of our stay were fine...but this is just a heads up to check the ND home game schedule before you book! We camped at South Bend / Elkhart North KOA in a Motorhome.

Located approx. 3 miles off I-80 with good roads. Heavily wooded RV park, heavily wooded sites but clean and well maintained. Met at gate, and escorted to site. Our site was pull thru, gravel/grass, close to level. Most sites have trees on both sides, however we were located on site 36, and able to get limited satellite. Our 40' rig plus tow just fit on the site without unhooking. Wifi was good. There is a camp store, pool, two dog parks and plenty of kids activities. Laundry room is behind office with older machines but good. We were here during the week, so very quiet. Located in a business park area, and a few restaurants located within walking distance. There is a train nearby and can be heard at park. Located close to South Bend, Elkhart and the Michigan border. Assume that is why it's a bit pricey. We stayed one night. We camped at South Bend / Elkhart North KOA in a Motorhome.

If you like being in the trees, this is the campsite for you. We were not happy there. Just too many trees and the park was very dark. It was difficult to manuever our 40ft 5th wheel when departing. The Internet was on and off most of the time and when on line, it was extremely slow. The cable was terrible, thank goodness for OTA. Not one site was satellite friendly. Fifth eight dollars a night was a "rip-off." We would not stay there again. We camped at South Bend / Elkhart North KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We only pulled in for an overnight stay but the campground is very clean and well maintained. The owners are very friendly and informative. The sites are narrow and some are close to the trees. We couldn't open our awning completely because it hit a pine tree. The4 sites are cramped but do allow for a large rig. You Get a cookie at check in for the kids and they have Bagels and coffee in the office for breakfast. Very nice Campground. We would stay here again.

Enjoy your fresh baked cookie at checkin. Good location for having some RV work completed in nearby Elkhart or Mishiwaka. Be aware for expensive site costs per night when Notre Dame is playing. Sites are very treed so we would not want to come in after dark. You are led into your site and you want to be as the trees are close enough when swinging in. Really no trouble in daylight. The pine trees were losing their pine needles and we did not open our slides because it was too messy. we did blow the needles off the roof before we left. Railroad nearby but it was quiet enough at night. We camped at South Bend / Elkhart North KOA in a Motorhome.

Visit the RV Museum about 1/2 hour away in Elkhart. It is a time capsule of trailers and motorhomes. Many original units that you can walk into. You can walk to 2 restaurants nearby. Coppercreek Cafe was excellent for breakfast.

We stayed only one night, but campground looked good. Lots of trees, which we like. Didn't use wifi; so can't comment on it. We will be back! We camped at South Bend / Elkhart North KOA in a Tent Trailer.

The staff is fantastic, the park is clean and I truly felt safe at this campground. We stayed during the week and it was very quiet, but I'm sure that's not always the case, especially on the weekends. Like many other reviews state, the lot sizes are very skinny. They're long, but there's not much wiggle room and that's the main reason this park didn't get a 10 from me. We don't typically camp at these type of campgrounds. We love rustic camping with ample space between us and others. You really have no privacy here at all. I had to keep my blinds shut most of the time in order to get privacy. I would highly recommend widening the sites in the future. I would have loved sitting outside more, but I didn't like sitting right on top of the neighbors. My neighbor said he wouldn't have a fire because the fire ring was so close to our rig that smoke would have rolled right in my windows, which it would have. The trains didn't bother me at all, the tall pines are beautiful and I will likely be back. The price was pretty steep for a weekday, off-season stay, but it's to be expected in these type of parks. In any case, I would stay here again. We camped at South Bend / Elkhart North KOA in a Truck Camper.

Newbie here. 1st KOA visit so ratings may be skewed for awhile. Clean, nice tall trees, wonderful smell of pine. Check in swift, followed attendant to site, was told to check in after setting up. Good 120 volt power. Two accessible sewer ports at this site.

Train passes "close by," did not bother me. The campsite emptied out on Friday but filled back up Saturday night. Pass thru's have good length, sites quite close together. Excellent cable (50+ channels), WiFi so/so, 4+ bars on Verizon and AT&T. We camped at South Bend / Elkhart North KOA in a Motorhome.

Price seems high for this place, as I don't see this as a destination, so to speak . We just use it as a overnight stop over, and if you have kids I guess they would like it due to the swimming pool. Its an OK place, just not somewhere or someplace that I would see us spending time at. We camped at South Bend / Elkhart North KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Really liked this place a lot. Close to a million stores and Notre Dame is about 5 miles away. Sites are nicely wooded and shaded t0 make even hot days tolerable. Pool & kid facilities are nice. Pad was level gravel and did not seem too tight...though you may have to position your rigs slideouts to avoid bumping into trees. Cable worked well and has all the key stations. Wifi was spotty in the evenings...generally good during the day. Staff super helpful and friendly...nice snack amenities at the office.
Quiet park unless the trains is rumbling through...but that did not bother us inside the coach. We will definitely return. We camped at South Bend / Elkhart North KOA in a Motorhome.

Well run park in a very safe area. Lots to do nearby, stores gas etc. The Train is only a block away but did not bother us.But the day camp is very noisy! The spots are tight, and yes the fire rings can be close to your rig, but we were on an end of the row spot which was a good size for KOA.The two night minimum for a long week end can present a problem if you are just passing through. Lots of mature trees, good shade. We camped at South Bend / Elkhart North KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice staff essential to help us get into narrow treed space. Space level but they are close together. We were able to use all 3 slides. Probably not what I consider big rig friendly since we are 40 ft towing. Good location. Train was NOT a problem for us as earlier reviewers reported.
