Nightly rate does not include the $9 entry fee (one time fee) for out of state residents. Site 75 is spacious, gravel/grass mix and mostly level, but many sites have a slight grade. Good Verizon cell/MiFi reception. Good satellite television reception at our site. Trees may block reception at many sites. We stayed for four nights to visit family in South Bend and will stay again. The campground is popular on summer weekends and a reservation is probably needed. We camped at Potato Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

The rate does not reflect the additional $9 for non-resident park admission we had to pay. For 30 amp electric only, $34 is out of line. Sites are gravel and levelness varies by location. Our site ran down, toward the street, fine for a trailer, not so good for a 40' motorhome. We camped at Potato Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

Stayed here one night, but both days were cold. Had to obtain extension from park to hook up the electricity. A deposit was required but returned when the extension cord was returned. Friendly attendant at gate who waived the $7 gate fee.

Due to the cold I could not hike around. I would like Wi-Fi.

I will definitely stay here again. We camped at Potato Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

Driving into the state park there is a $7 fee for your vehicle in addition to your camping fees. Once past the state park gate you will drive another 3 miles to get to check-in at the campground gate. The park is electric only so remember to fill before you settle in at your site. Water fill and dump stations are located just past the campground check-in on the inside of the park. Electric boxes are shared with two side by side 30 amp outlets that are about 50'- 75' away from motor coach. There are concrete parking bars at the back of each site that prevent you from getting any closer to the electric box. We had to move sites as this distance was too great for our umbilical. (The park does rent extension cords.) We were disappointed by this electrical infrastructure. The showers were one temperature that was a little to warm for my kids and I. The toilets and showers were clean by my standards for a State Park. There are several playgrounds for the kids to enjoy and the park is in a very natural state. We camped at Potato Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

Potato Creek is another of Indiana's great state parks. Big park on a lake that had a swimming beach, great bicycle trails on and off road, nature center, camp store, boat rental just to mention a few of the things offered. Lots of mature trees in campground. The showers and restrooms were very clean. Saw lots of campground personnel constantly check on the restrooms and the garbage. Like most campgrounds on a weekend there were lots of kids and barking dogs. There was not a lot of privacy between campsites so all that became very obvious once the weekend began. During the week it was very peaceful and quiet. We camped at Potato Creek State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Rate cited is the discounted Sunday through Thursday rate. Very quiet park for a four night stay during the week. Nice paved road through the park and campground, but the sites are gravel (handicapped sites are paved). Some sites have a slope, but most look level. We camped on site #74, which is level. Sites have lots of space in between one another. We have stayed here often and will continue to return. We camped at Potato Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a lovely state park campground and although there were no amenities, only power, it is a very popular place. There are wonderful bicycle paths and trails and very large campsites. It was very cool while we were here, since we were trying to conserve our water supply, I tried out the showers. At first I had hot water, but within a few minutes it was cold. All the windows were left open all day and night so it was freezing in the bath house. It is a very family friendly campground and was almost full when we arrived. Since it is close to Notre Dame, you may need to have reservations on a ball game weekend. The grounds are well kept and we saw several turkeys during our stay. I would definitely stay here again if visiting the South Bend, Indiana area. We camped at Potato Creek State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

A big park with lots of RV spaces, but there is very adequate space between each site. Park is off the beaten path and campground is several miles inside the park. Level sites with adequate space to back into. There are some pull-throughs. Very quiet atmosphere. Regular patrols by park personnel. Bathhouses were cleaned regularly. Some sites are heavily treed and some fairly open. We had 3-4 trees, but satellite reception was not a problem. Limited cellular reception. Overall, nice park, friendly staff. Will stay here again.

We stay at this state park often, and have never had a problem with it. The park itself is huge, with a wonderful lake to take small watercraft on. No gas motors. The nature center is great if you have little kids, and the general store is well stocked. The people that work in the store are very helpful and knowledgeable. You can purchase day fishing licenses from the general store, which is very helpful. This trip we chose a pull through site since we were camping with another couple. They had a back in site right next to ours so we were able to buddy camp with a wonderful grassy area for us to share. We did have some loud young adults across from us, but one mention to them that they were a bit loud was all it took for them to quiet down. The park has great ranger presence, which gives nice peace of mind if you are traveling with little ones. We will always pick this as our place to go when we don't want to travel to far from home.

Sites are large, grassy and have adequate shade. Many trees have seasoned since park opened. A large playground in center of loops with smaller ones in surrounding areas. There is a scenic bike trail and a moderately challenging mountain bike trail, plus several hiking trails. Lake is clean, but fished out. Beach is nice and there is boat and canoe rental and a large fishing pier. Roads are wide and well-marked and staff is friendly and helpful. Restrooms and showers cleaned and well-maintained. One of our favorite destinations. We camped at Potato Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

We have camped twice this year in our pop up and will be returning next weekend with our new travel trailer. This state park was a nice surprise. The sites a bit more grassy than most state parks. Large sites with lots of shade. Very clean. Nice beach area with concessions. Fishing and canoe rentals are nice. Bring a bike, lots of places to ride. Nature center is nice for the kids. Still wish more state parks had full hookups, we would stay more often. We will return for sure. We camped at Potato Creek State Park in a Tent Trailer.

Avoid site 54 like the plague: they have allowed a mulberry tree to overlap the entry to the site and it's a mess. Please remove! The park has developed beautifully into a mecca for the locals. Nice beach by Indiana standards. Well maintained park (except for the aforementioned mulberry tree). Hospitable former Marine at the entry to the camping area, check in lady was a bit of a crank. Has a nice size lake for kayaking, etc. Located near any shopping you want in South Bend or Amish area. Biking was excellent as was any Amish place for food. Will stay here again, just not site 54.

A well rounded state park with a wide variety of activities. The campsites are mostly level. There are only a few pull-thru sites. Very few sites are well shaded. The comfort stations are clean. Sites are pretty large. One large playground in the campground and several in the park. There is a wonderful 3.3 mile paved bike trail around Worster Lake. The 6.6 mile mountain bike trail was a blast. Two boat launches and two fishing piers, but the lake is really over fished. Decent beach. Nice nature center. Bridal trails and horseman's campground. Several miles of hiking trails. In the fall there is a prairie maze. Osprey nest is always worth a look. The ospreys can often be seen catching fish. Really a lot to do here. We camped at Potato Creek State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Nice sites and pretty big place. Wish the bathroom had better water pressure and decent heads on the showers. Lots of things to do here. Great fishing and bike trails especially. Kids loved the playground by our site. Sites could be leveled out a little better for us pop up campers with the lousy leveling jacks. Overall we have been there numerous times and will be returning soon. Fun place! We camped at Potato Creek State Park in a Tent Trailer.
