Passport America park near Shipshewana.
PA sites are all back-in, W/E only. Some 50-Amp sites. Come early as by 6 PM most all the PA Sites were taken.
Grass sites, fairly level.
No Wi-Fi or cable, no over the air TV. We camped at Grandview Bend Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Enjoyed this park and Howe, IN also. Passport America sites are back in along the corn field with E & W. Dump in CG but not at site. Some electric posts are shared. One 50 amp and 1 or 2-30 amp hookups per post. May need long extension cord. Mosquitoes present near vegetation. Drive slowly because of dust from gravel roads. Also lots of iron in water and water has metallic taste. Fill your water tank before you go or have good filters. We camped at Grandview Bend Family Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Wal Mart and laundromat in Sturgis, MI. Two restaurants, barber shop, used book store and an ice cream shop in Howe. Go to Saturday morning farmer's market in Howe town square. Shipshewanna is an easy drive.

Public sites are back in and are easy to access at the front of the park. The park road is a dirt road and very very dusty. Park is easy to access off US 20. Stayed here for one night enroute to destination. Lots of Mosquitos.....had a truck go through the park to spray. We camped at Grandview Bend Family Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Within driving distance of some Amish sites.

When we made this reservation they told us that we might have to have two sites because of the length of the RV and tow. But when we arrived the sites that they have blocked off for Coast to Coast are on the as you drive in and can take a 45 foot with a tow. Some of them are on a slight hill so choose wisely and you will not have a problem. The ground are very well kept, they have a play ground for the kids....mini golf....pool and a kiddy pool. Tennis court and basketball area. The people that run the park are very friendly and helpful. They also accept Coast to Coast points, so the cost to us was zero. We camped at Grandview Bend Family Campground in a Motorhome.

Very laid-back campground. Sign directs you to pick a site along the corn field and the owner will be by to sign you in. Sites were grass with water and electric. Paid an extra $2 for 50-amp service. Found a nice restaurant and a great ice cream shop in town. Would stop here again when traveling across Indiana. We camped at Grandview Bend Family Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a membership pk where people own lots. This pk offers disc. to coast to Coast, Escapees & Passport America. We stayed here for 6 nights w/ PA disc. we pd $14.50 for the 1st 2 nts. $17. a nt for the other 4 for 50A, if you only need 30A its $2. less, these are just w/e sites. For non members it's $30. night. There are 40 long sites, parked on grass, pretty level & ground is solid. It rained while we were there, there was no problem with water sitting on the grassy sites. There is a pool, free WIFI that was good. The gravel road into the park had a few potholes & needed some grating. Nice quiet little park to spend a few days, 10 miles from Shipshewana Flee market, & about 25 miles from Elkhart. Stayed here June 15 - 21, 2015 & would stay here again if in area. We camped at Grandview Bend Family Campground in a Motorhome.

A driveway with about 40 sites for overnight campers - used Passport America so got a great rate but it was just W/E. There is a dump station. If all sites are full I would say they would be tight. There is one 50amp and 2-30amp at each shared pedestal so be sure if you want a 50 amp that your neighbor is not already using it. The seasonal campers were friendly. The campground is clean and in a good location - about 10 mi from Shipshewana. We would return if in the area in the future and we camped in a 5th wheel. (The pool was closed for the season and there is a small playground if that is important) We camped at Grandview Bend Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here to sleep. That was it. The site was sloped and I had to put several blocks under the tongue jack. For the money it was worth it. Park was clean and it appeared that there were others that just lay-over in this park. We would stay here again. We camped at Grandview Bend Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Price is Coast to Coast. We have stayed here several times and it is convenient to Shipshewana and surrounding areas. Very quiet park. C2C people choose their own site on the left as you enter and the campground host comes to you later. It's best to park further in, as the main road can be dusty. Lots of seasonal people but the park is in good repair and the sites are neat. We parked on all grass and backed up to a farm field. Lots of places to walk the dog. Since we didn't have sewer I tried to use the showers but there was no hot water. That was poor, as all guests of the park have no sewer. Adequate Verizon data and cell but not great. We camped at Grandview Bend Family Campground in a Motorhome.

Price reflects Passport and C2C. Follow GPS exactly to get to this campground. There are several county roads leading into the campground. Very quiet rural setting. Sites are all grass. Sites are average to small; however, even in June there were empty sites between—making it feel larger. Easily handle big rigs because of the open spaces. Sites are electric and water only. There is a dump station available. The staff is very nice and wants to help any way possible. There are trees throughout campsites. Trees offer shade, but can make getting satellite a challenge. Interior roads have pot holes that cannot be avoided. Very good Verizon cell and data coverage. Pros definitely outweigh the cons. We camped at Grandview Bend Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We have visited this park several times during stays in the Elkhart, Shipshewana area. The rate reflects Coast to Coast pricing. WiFi good, AT&T signal good, good 50 amp service along with good water pressure. No sewer, but does have a dump station. All grass sites, some a little uneven, friendly management. This year they had soy beans planted behind us. Last time here it was corn. Love this park, and will definitely return. We camped at Grandview Bend Family Campground in a Motorhome.

Camped here under Coast to Coast. Road is gravel but well maintained. Park over all is well maintained. Electric and water all worked fine. Site was level but could be tight if park is full. Very nice rural setting. The seasonals are not mixed in with the traveling RVers. Park is in a good location to visit many RV manufacturers or tour the Amish country side. We would use this park again. We camped at Grandview Bend Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Okay. PA rate $12.50/night for first two nights, then $15/night thereafter. Bathrooms clean; however, NO HOT WATER...heck...not even WARM. There had been rain prior to our arrival; however, during our 3-days there no efforts were made to mow-the-pasture (grass really long). There are 40 back-in sites running along the entrance road. Sites are grass. This year the chosen crop planted in the field behind the sites was corn. Our site was fairly level. Seems the higher number sites - past 20 - became more sloped. Numerous recreational items (tennis courts, putt-putt golf, swimming pool) available. All in need of routine maintenance and upkeep. Billed as a resort, the owner's park models are for most part 'aged' with quite a few for sale opportunities. Management was pleasant. Park was safe, quiet. Sites were way too close together. Town of Howe was really great mid western town boasting two really nice cafe/restaurants, great little ice cream parlor, and nice park with pavilion. We most likely would not return unless we needed a quick overnight. Electric pods were shared between 3 sites. First come first serve for the 50 amp; other two got 30amp. Water was available in location of electric pod. I had to use 50ft electric cable and 50ft water hose to connect. Management claimed Wi-Fi. We could never get it...even outside. We camped at Grandview Bend Family Campground in a Motorhome.

Stayed here on Coast-to-Coast points. Nice shady site backed up to an open farm field. Honey wagon was $10 extra but free dump station is available if you want to knock down and set back up. Good base camp for visiting Elkhart (RV Museum?) and the Amish Trail. we were here for 4 nights. If you need anything from the store on Sunday, you have to go to Sturgis, MI (20 miles). We camped at Grandview Bend Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
