Extraordinarily crowded for July 4th weekend, but the facilities were still kept up nicely. The comfort stations could use updating but were very well kept. Heavy rains recently meant lots of mud but also great kayaking! Site 370 has 2 trees close to the pad that prevent awning deployment but offers lots of shade from said trees. - The Flying Dutchman

Very nice park. Good kayaking, but water levels were low and there was a lot of moss. Only complaint is that after the weekend, Sunday actually, the restrooms were a total disaster. Inmates came in on Monday and scrubbed everything and worked on landscaping. If you want quiet, drive around the park as it is very large, very nice, and you can get more secluded site than we had, but won't have 50 amp. We were close to playground and a group of four tents and they were very noisy. You could be more selective but the tents moved in after we did. Tenters thought it was daylight until 1:00 a.m. We stayed for four nights and would stay there again. - horseylady

Very pretty state park with ample, grassy sites. Fairly level sites. Great canoeing and kayaking. We would definitely stay here again, especially in good weather. We stayed here on a caravan and everyone loved this park. - pegasus

Big rig friendly with level sites and easy access from interstate. Showers were large with hot water. Laundry and Wifi was okay. No cable but able to use our satellite. Campground had large dog park. Even though there were lots of seasonals there were still good sites for overnight or weekly stays. - Fulltimersrv

We stayed for a long weekend with good friends. Have wanted to visit this CG for a while and are very glad we did! The CG was very clean. I was impressed at the number of employees we saw, always busy doing something.
There was a fenced dog park with some ability equipment, my 13yo chocolate lab who used to be an agility dog but just gave me a look when I suggested he give it a try!
The camp store was wonderful! So well stocked, we were very excited about the hand dipped ice cream. There was a lot of rv supplies. They even had Circle-B t-shirts at a very reasonable price.
There are seasonal lots that are very well maintained by the seasonal campers. The seasonal people that we spoke to were very nice. We are definitely considering a seasonal lot.
They also have cabins to rent.
There is a newer building by the beach that could be a little store but it wasn't open yet when we were there. So I'm not sure.
There are 2 beaches which we didn't use because it was too cold.
You aren't allowed to bring in your own wood so just be prepared to be buy theirs, which I thought wasn't a bad price. - KaraShively

Something has happened to this campground. Office had bags of stuff all over the floor.
We went to our site and phoned back asking about air tv, which is non existent. At the same time, we reported four bags of garbage in our fire pit that we didn't want to get blamed for. Said oh sorry, we will pick it up. Was still there the next morning.
No map of facilities was given.
Only good thing was the Internet was was satisfactory. Very nice picnic tables.
Feels like this place is on a slippery slide in my humble opinion. - Tworetired

Narrow road down the frontage off the interstate. Its a large field with sites spread out. Wifi wasn't usable. This was a one night stop over for us. It was good for what we needed for the night. We didn't take advantage of the facilities, but they appear quite family oriented. Friendly staff and other residents/extended stay campers. - KSU Alum

There was a very friendly staff There was lots of room at each site, and there were long pull throughs. - darby

This park is near the interstate with easy access via a mile or so of paved, but narrow, road that parallels the freeway. Considering its proximity to the highway, there is not a lot of noise. The first thing we noticed was all the green space, acres of grass, great place to run the dog. They only have a few pull-through transient sites, but when we were there during midweek, there was only one other coach. The sites are very large with a gravel/grass parking area. They were close to being level. There are a lot of seasonal campers here, but almost all the RVs were in good condition and they didn't detract from the park. The park is old and this was shown in the utilities. The site we were assigned had a circuit breaker box that was just hanging from the end of plastic conduit for lack of a screw to affix it to the backing post. The threads on both water faucets were defective and we had to connect to water in an adjacent site. The ownership of the park changed recently and hopefully these problems will be repaired soon. The park has a lot of potential for one-night stays. There is no Wi-Fi and marginal service with Verizon. - ghatfield

This is a no frills RV park but it is convenient to I-69 and good for an overnight stay. We've stayed here twice & both times, it was a "self serve" check-in. Pick a site, fill out the registration form & deposit it with cash or your credit card information in the box. There is no Wifi in the park. The washrooms & showers are clean. We did not use the laundry facilities. Will stay here again for convenience only. - 69636

This park is less and less each year that we stop.
This year some of the washrooms and showers were "out of order".
You have to check yourself in and leave the envelope......with your credit card number available.
Almost past the point of being convenient. - Tworetired

Easy access from freeway, very quiet, site accommodated 60' pull-through, stable AC power, good water pressure. We would stay here again. - RagFtw

Called the Encore toll free number and was told PA rate is not valid for fhu sites. Called the cg direct and had no problem reserving a fhu site at the PA rate. Was assigned a site on the phone. On the day of arrival, the park called to ask if I would accept a different site. Current occupant wanted to stay longer. Sure, no problem. Was assigned a site 2 spots down and pretty much the same. Registration was a breeze. Lower gate card reader did not work, but the upper one did. Loop road in the RV area is narrow. Your coach will likely go off the asphalt, but it is not a big drop. Lots of trees, but not too close to the roads. Satellite reception could be a problem though. Only picked up a few channels by antenna. Camplink pay as you go wifi worked very well. Much better than Tengo and cheaper, too. Pool was not open, but the resort fee was still charged. Small fenced in dog area. This place is very big. It is real easy to walk your dog for a half hr on the paved roads, just make sure you pick up after your pet. Several trash dumpsters throughout so you're not carrying the poo for long. Some of the back in sites are really long, easily 60' - 70'. Pull thrus are probably in the 50' range. Some minor road noise from Hwy 120. Would stay here again if in the area. - TH travelers

Well when I reserved apparently I had not chosen a sewer site. Thought I did, but they upgraded for free so no complaints. The roads are narrow and the first site they wanted to put us in was very narrow and slightly sloped. I could have gotten in but went back and asked for a different site. We were in an area of seasonals. The first day we did have to climb on the roof of the rig and cut the low hanging branches back as they were hitting the roof in the wind. The sites are well treed and you are on pretty sandy soil but no sinking even after a few days of rain. The pool is nice as is the beach and lake. The lake access is small and far from where we were camped. All in All it is a decent place for the price. I do wish that TT/Encore/ELS would make an effort with their parks and make the seasonals keep their trailers up. Not a 10 year thing but just not look like they have not been repaired in the last decade. - RVing Along

We came up here for a week to enjoy Shipshewana, and this campground is totally wooded. Where we were at was quiet, but the pine sap gets on your camper, and in it too. Other than that (no one can control nature), the campground was pretty clean. The pool is too small for how many can camp there, and we avoided it the whole weekend we were there. They have a lake you can go swim at (a real lake that is large--not a big water hole), and it was very nice swimming in that. There is a pizza deliver nearby that makes the best pizza we have ever had. A lot of people speed on the golf carts so you have to watch out for them, and kids won't and don't get out of the road when you are driving in or out of the place. Across the road are even more camp sites, but the roads are narrower over there. There were even a lot of Amish camping in the cabins when we were there. The staff is excellent. Super friendly, and we did have to go up front to use the Internet. Overall it is a nice place, and we would go there again. - happy2013camper

We stayed here last year at this time. It is our favorite park in the Shipshewana area. The staff is very friendly, good 50 amp, good water pressure, free wifi (that can get overloaded during peak hours), BUT still better than using my AT&T, which BTW had good reception. Interior raods are gravel as are sites. Roads are welll maintained as is the rest of the park. Our site backed up to a small pond with Amish horses grazing behind the pond. We will return. - walt66

Expensive for what you receive, but you are in a tourist town. The park is large with many "close" sights. We had a pull-through and our neighbo's sewer connection was right outside our door. We had EWS and WiFi was good. You are right in town, but it is very quiet at night. There are trees and grass. We stayed here three nights in a 28' motor home with tow. - Thirdtime

Staff very friendly. Stayed 3 nights while visiting Shipshewana Flea Market. Site was perfectly level and adequate size for or Trailer and F-150. Park was very quiet. - Bill Highland Heights Ky

We needed a place to stay for a night and this was convenient. We knew going in that it being a resort park it would not be our cup of tea, but it was in the right place and was easy to access the interstate. That being said, we prefer non-resort parks as we are approaching retirement age. Sites were very small and very close together. The supposed pull-thru we were assigned was a true challenge to get into. If not for the open field behind the site I would have had to drive around and back into this site due to the placement of trees. Many seasonal folks there and they would park their vehicles where ever they wanted. We were next to a seasonal site and after we got settled they had a visitor just park behind us where I had pulled into the site. Could not be bothered with saying anything as we just needed a place to sleep for the night. This is why we don't do resort type parks. We would not stay here again. - dhshaw

This is a resort park. Although it was quiet at night (they announce the quiet hours times each day) it's not quiet and peaceful during the day. It's jam-packed with activities for families. There are several playgrounds, jumping pillows, miniature golf, four swimming pools, water slides (for an additional fee) and a spectacular splash pad that will keep kids young and old (like 40 something old!) occupied for hours. Trash is picked up at your site three times a day; the camp store has a little of everything but a gallon of milk cost $5.99 so it can be pricey. The snack stand was OK but limited and it seemed like they kept running out of things, especially the ice cream flavors. The arcade was poor. Many of the games were old and out of order, and the elderly woman who staffed it actually argued with us when we lost two tokens in one of the machines. You can also rent pedal carts and pedal boats. The sites are nicely sized and although there's no real privacy, there's decent separation and numerous trees to afford some shade. The shower stalls were clean. Softened water would be nice (at this price) but not a big deal. Golf carts were numerous but at $55 a day with a two day minimum, we declined. We were in site 543 and although we could hear the interstate, it didn't keep us up at night. Perhaps those in a tent would experience otherwise. We will probably return next summer because the kids had a blast. - Fdwt994

I have mixed emotions about this place. I can give it a 10 for fun factor. There are many seasonal campers at this campground which is fine. But all of the unsupervised kids is not. Had a hard time enjoying the water activities due to this. The "lifeguards" did not see this to be a problem. For the rate we paid, in my opinion, should have included all water activities. The water slides are extra. We also did not realize this park parallels with the highway. Our site was the last row the noise was tolerable but you knew you were next to a major highway. The pools were very clean along with the shower house but I did not use them. Nice park for the kids but a tic overpriced for the entire experience. - pacevette

This campground is under newer ownership and appears to be more suited to the seasonal camper than travelers or local families. The people at the office were not very friendly nor management team well signified. The site we were approved to set up on was apparently the parking spot used by a seasonal camper; thus creating an attitude problem for him (and therefore us) the entire weekend. The bathrooms and showers were not kept clean in a timely manner during this overly growled holiday weekend. Sites are not marked thus allowing campers and cars to be parked everywhere. I'm sure this campground was over their set capacity. The speed limit was not enforced, and with too many golf carts on the road at all hours, this created hazardous conditions for the many children roaming around. Scheduled activities were not well organized, nor conducted on-time. Our overall impressions were, obviously, not good and we would not recommend this campground to anyone passing through. There are many other campgrounds within the area, therefore my buck would definitely have been spent better elsewhere; and probably have been welcomed considering today's economy. - scrapperdmk

We camped there during the Kids Festival weekend. The location was nice... not too far away from home but far enough to "be away". They had lots of activities for the kids to do but some were a little cheesy. Our site just had electric with some grass but no shade to speak of. Luckily it wasn't a hot weekend. Wasn't exactly a quiet place but not horribly noisy. We'd stay there again in the off season. - Chic

We stayed here one night and would never go back. The place is old and rundown. There was only one gravel site and it was more dirt than gravel. The rest of the sites were grass. The electric at the sites were 20 with some 30 AMP. - corgi lovers

This resort is small with 60 sites. It is primarily a seasonal resort but they do rent by the week and the month. The resort sits on Barton Lake and each site has it's own pier. The sites are very large and are full hookup. Lots of grass and each site has a concrete pad. The resort has a very nice pool, basketball court and a playground. It sits right next door to the Jellystone Park which has water slides, mini-golf, etc that you can use by paying a daily usage fee. This resort was spotless, well maintained and quiet not to mention the seasonals are well maintained and very friendly to us during our stay. We would definitely recommend this resort if you are planning a week trip to northeast Indiana. - ppmccormick

We camped here over the 4th of July weekend. The good points are that if you have children, there are many things for them to do and there is a decent beach and nice lake with slide. For adults there were also some organized fun things going on too. If you have a boat or jet ski, this would be a nice place to stay. Now the not so good. If you have a dog stay far away. You have to carry or transport in a wagon or car your dog to the dog area. You are not allowed to walk them anywhere in the park and they are not shy about letting you know that. This is primarily a seasonal campground and they clearly do not like having the few nightly campers there. We all felt like we were intruding. Even upon check-out, no one ever asked if we enjoyed our stay. There was some noise from 80/90 as you are pretty close, but wasn't real annoying. But tent campers, be aware, where they stick you, you are almost right on the highway itself. I would NEVER camp in a tent here. It is too bad. This is a very nice park and would normally be someplace we would return to, but no way, with the vibe we felt. - campingbug

I used to stay here when I was a child, now that I have my own children, I decided to try camping there with them. It is exactly as I remember it. Wooded shady lots, friendly people, activities on the weekend. There is one bath house with three showers, and three toilets and it was fairly clean. It was kind of slow during the week, but got very busy on the weekend. Nice beach, clean lake. Will definitely return in the future. - GMcComb
