This is a reasonably small campground but well kept up. The pool is very large and the grounds are lovely with flowers. There is a small pond with geese. Our site was gravel but level. We shared a patio with the trailer next door which is a new set up for us. Camp ground was a bit loud but quieted down when quiet time started. Would definitely camp here again. We camped at Michigan City Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice campground that is full of seasonal campers. Not that many sites for transient campers. Totally family oriented with playground for kids, pool, and nice grounds. Pull through site we stayed in shares a concrete pad with your neighbor. Sewer placement can require extra hose depending on where your hookups are located. For the nightly rate, they should have cable TV, and this is one reason I didn't rate them higher. They offer no discounts at all. We would look for a less expensive park next time we're in the area as we don't need the playground or swimming pool. We camped at Michigan City Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a nice park and well maintained. We stayed on a premium site which was a pull-through with a concrete pad and large yard. The utilities worked well and the Wi-Fi was one of the fastest we have seen. They don't have cable TV but we were able to pick up several over the air channels. The campground and sites are easy to get in and out of. The office personnel was friendly and helpful and told us about the things to do in the area. We would stay here again. We camped at Michigan City Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a very quiet park; the trains are barely audible and it's near enough to the interstate for easy access, but far enough away that there is no truck noise. Since we were camping early in the season, there very many vacant spots which made it even quieter. The shower stall changing area is a bit cramped but clean. The trees make it an attractive site. We camped in the area in back of the office. I don't know about the front campground sites which are nearer the road. We camped at Michigan City Campground in a Motorhome.

We were surprised that this park was open this time of year; but very grateful. It was very windy and then the rain started. The owner was very friendly and wanted to help us. We camped at Michigan City Campground in a Truck Camper.

This campground has a lot of people living here full time that are working construction jobs in the area. Some of these permanent RVs are older and run down. Our site had a nice grassy area in between the site next to ours but no concrete pad. The concrete pad sites are more expensive. All campgrounds get noisy on the weekends with kids and weekend warriors. It wasn't a problem for us and during the week it was very quiet. The campground is family run and the owners are extremely nice and accommodating to the best of their ability. The only complaint we had was that they only had one dumpster for the entire campground and by Sunday it was overflowing with trash piled up on the ground around it. The gravel/dirt road made for a lot of dust but not a big deal if drivers would go slow. We would stay here again. We camped at Michigan City Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We booked our site 6 months in advance and told the women on the phone the size of our fifth wheel, 36 feet. When we arrived they had us in a site between to 20 year old campers that people lived in year round. The site was so tight I could not make the turn, beyond that the site itself was only 30 feet long meaning 6 feet of my camper was in the road. The staff finally found me a bigger site but that to was in the "trashy section" both neighbors live year round and had loud drinking parties every night we stayed. We used this CG as a base to take the train to Chicago every day so we were only there late evening to early mornings. My son's wanted to play ping pong in the game room when we first arrived but they wanted to charge $2.00 to rent the paddle and ball. I was disappointed in the site we got even when we booked over 6 months in advance. This was the most expensive place I stayed on my 3 week summer trip through Indian and Michigan and was by far the worst. We camped at Michigan City Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a tale of two campgrounds. There's the new section (sites 201-228), older section (29-93), and the oldest section (1-28). We were in a site that had just been converted from a semi-permanent site. I tried to level the trailer, but the front jack was at its max lift. The view was of 2 old trailers, an old dump truck, and 4 unused propane tanks. This section of the campground (sites 1 & 14-19) appears to be semi-permanents, that are not well maintained. The front section has no shade but is much nicer with adequate room between sites and grass. Unless you can get into the new section, I would recommend going to one of the other campgrounds 30 minutes away. I tried to connect to Wi-Fi all weekend (3 different devices and was "unable to connect"). The campground is 5 minutes from Patriot Park, (Michigan City Parks & Recreation). We camped at Michigan City Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Too much money for what you received. We would probably not stay here again. We camped at Michigan City Campground in a Motorhome.

This campground is all gravel with rather narrow lots. The front area is without trees and there are only a few in the area close to the office. The grounds are in need of upgrading and the Wi-Fi is very poor. There is no cable, therefor I felt that the price was too high given the lack of quality. It was OK for a one night stay, since we were just passing through. We will choose another campground when coming this way again. We camped at Michigan City Campground in a Motorhome.

We actually settled on this campground after we found our original choice had been unmaintained for quite some time. They worked very hard to shuffle incoming campers so that we could have 2 w/s/e beside each other and an additional electric site nearby. All of this on short notice too! The new addition was not impressive. It was a hunk of land that they bulldozed and added w/s/e sites. There were NO trees, it's RIGHT by the road and was gravel. The pond was more like a large puddle and we didn't see anyone pull a thing from it. The office and its staff was all very nice and helpful. The bathhouse was air conditioned They recently painted the shower bricks in a textured paint which looks really nice. The only complaint is that it's very confined and there's no bench. The pool is nice and well maintained. The campsites is where we had our problems. You park on gravel, there's a small slab of cement and even less grass. Our campsites were probably 40 feet long- barely enough to park a 30ft trailer and the tow truck. If you're wanting a lawn, don't expect it here. Shade is also something that was hard to come by. But our chief complaint would be the site sizes. They are tight to begin and then once you let out the slide outs and get stuff unpacked there's barely enough room for the neighbor to get through on their "grass". Due to the size, the fire pits are also very close to either the trailer of the car. I think we would definitely stay here again, but only because we are usually out seeing the sites. I cannot imagine being stuck on the tiny site with 12 people around a fire. Next time we would get reservations in early so we can get a shady grass spot where we can face the 2 trailers to each other and the tent on a site nearby. We camped at Michigan City Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We were not happy here because we couldn't connect to WiFi the entire two days, though there were towers right next to us. Also, their online reservation system didn't work. An upgrade is needed. Overnight sites appeared to be in the front area, no trees, but large grassy lots and long pull-through sites. No discounts given. We camped at Michigan City Campground in a Motorhome.

Park has an old section, a less-old section, and a new section, closer to the entry. We were in the new section, which has generous pull-through sites, level, well laid out, quiet. Has nice, friendly owners. Has nice landscaping and flowers in park. We would stay here again. We camped at Michigan City Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a nice park, and the owners are putting money into the park. There are some permanents, their sites are clean. The owner was laying sod in a new section near the entrance when we were there. We camped at Michigan City Campground in a Motorhome.
