This has to be one of the worst compound we have been at. The bath house was a real dump, sinks out of order, showers didn't work and the ones that did just barely. The staff not too friendly. The site they gave us barely fit my 23 foot travel trailer. Don't waste your money on this place!! We camped at Michigan City Campground in a Travel Trailer.

If you are looking for a quiet place to stay DO NOT reserve this park. Sites are very tight and park is 90 percent permanent residences. Many good rules just not enforced. E.g., visitors must park at office and get a pass.I counted at one point in time 10 cars parked in the 2 spots next to us. Also 11 PM weekend quiet hour, yet the party lasted until 4:10am! A 10- or 11-year-old parked a golf cart across from us and blasted his voice over a bull horn for 10 minutes around 8 PM with 10 adults partying and ignoring him. We have stayed all over the U.S. and this is my first negative review. This is hands down the worst park we have stayed in, especially for the price. Only one dumpster in the whole park. I would give is a zero if that was an option. We camped at Michigan City Campground in a Motorhome.

A very nice park south of Michigan City on 421. Check-in was painless, the owners seemed very nice. Nice clean pool, and the playground looked brand new. We reserved a premium site, which has a cement patio and cement fire ring, plus very nice grass. Overall we had a great time, no complaints! We camped at Michigan City Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

5 minute drive to the Carroll Street South Shore station and then 1.5 hour train ride to Chicago. Adults $10, children free w/ adults. http://www.nictd.com/

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
