This is our second visit to this nice campground. Most sites are reasonably level and satellite friendly. The free WiFi was okay as well. This CG is a bit pricy, considering gravel/dirt pads and (in our case) the electric was on one side and water/sewer the other. Fortunately, we travel with extensions for all utilities. That said, Shipshewana North is ideally located and quiet, except for some highway noise. We will definitely return here again. We camped at Shipshewana Campground North Park in a Fifth Wheel.
Tips for other Campers:
RV maintenance and Shipshewana shopping are the only two reasons that come to mind.

Campground is close to Flea Market held on Tuesdays & Wednesday. Thought the campground was a bit expensive for a W/E (30-amp) back-in site but we opted for this campground due to its location. Adjacent to very busy highway with many truckers using their Jake brakes. If you are a light sleeper, you may have some issues with this. Showers and toilets are in desperate need of a thorough cleaning. Shower curtain in the mens shower was just plain gross! And we did let the campground office know. Wi-Fi was strong at our site but went down in the evening after the office closed. Convenient to Elkhart with many RV manufactures, RV Hall of Fame and RV Surplus shops. Gravel sites in need of some leveling. We camped at Shipshewana Campground North Park in a Travel Trailer.

Campground is nice, clean, quiet and well taken care of. Sites are level but some are close together. CG is close to town and Shipshewana Flea Market. NO FIREPIT at campsite. You have to bring your own pit or go to community fire pit. We did know this and brought our own pit. WIFI and tv antenna worked good. Water, sewer, electric hookups where good. Sometimes have farm smells but not too bad. This is second time staying at CG and we will be back. Staff was very nice and friendly. CG has a nice dog walk area. One downfall this stay was that the staff started using a tree branch chipper to grind up branches etc. Noise was to the point that we needed hearing protection (no joke). They ended up stopping after about 15 minutes. Good thing because we were getting ready to say something. Would recommend that they do this in the off season when there are no campers around. Overall, nice CG, staff and area. We camped at Shipshewana Campground North Park in a Travel Trailer.
We enjoyed our time at this beautiful campground, which is close to Shipshewana. We were welcomed by friendly staff. Ice cream/Frozen Custard stand is located within the park. Campsites are large and streets are big rig friendly. The cabins located within this park are nested within the tress. Our campsite needed some minor leveling. DirecTV (free standing satellite) had no issue getting a signal. Wi-Fi was weak and not reliable. Verizon phones got a strong 4g signal. Campground is close to town with many shops, restaurants and gas stations. Campground is about 10 min. from I-80 highway. The surrounding street noise which leads into town is heard throughout the park, but was minor. Campground had large open fields for tent camping and picnics. Bathroom could use some TLC. We recommend visiting the RV Hall of Fame, which is nearby, and the Blue Gate Restaurant. Amish stores, farms and restaurants surround the area.

Rate reflectsa group rate. Came here for a Rally. This was a good choice for our Rally because the sites are at angles making socializing easy. The pavilion had electricity for our Pot Luck dinner. Roads are gravel, sites gravel and grass. Electric is on the passenger side, water & sewer on the driver's side. An extra electric cord is advisable. Power & water were fine, Sprint MiFi & cell signal poor, good signal with roof mounted DirecTV SD satellite dish, no fire rings, WiFi is $3 a day. Employees are friendly, professional, and helpful without being intrusive. Can hear the clip-clop of the Amish buggies as they go by. Definitely big friendly, pull-thru sites are plenty long enough.

We have stayed here several times. The park is well maintained, and they have a friendly staff. Our site only had 30 amp, but that was not an issue for us. We enjoyed the convenience to the Amish attractions, shopping, and the RV Surplus businesses. National RV Appliance repair is a few hundred yards away. There is an ice cream shop on grounds. We had a small rally here in June, and we will come back. We camped at Shipshewana Campground North Park in a Motorhome.
Nice park with shady sites that are mostly level. Staff is very friendly. When I voiced concern about the tree problem mentioned in earlier reviews, they advised they were trimming limbs and when we arrived there was no problem with trees scratching the sides or top. Not all sites have full hook ups, and very few have 50 amp but in our 32 foot rig, this was no problem. There are a few pull throughs but the backin sites were easy to access. Our site was 32 and was very nice. If you have children you may want to stay in their south park which has more sites and amenities. I would rate this park a 9.5 just because of the lack of 50 amp service at all the sites, but we couldn't ask for a better place to stay and we will return. As an added bonus, there is an ice cream stand in the park that has frozen custard and ice cream: both of which are fabulous. We camped at Shipshewana Campground North Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The staff at this campground are extremely friendly and very accommodating. They were very helpful with all sorts of local information. We were in site 27 which is close to the office and the restrooms. The showers and restrooms were extremely clean and very well maintained. The campground itself is also very well maintained. The interior roads were level but a bit on the narrow side. Our site was level, a bit narrow but was located between some huge spruce Christmas trees, which were delightful to view out our windows. The campground is very close to the highway but as a previous reviewer wrote, it is very pleasant to listen to clop, clop of the horses. We were not able to get any local TV reception with our antennae, but had no problem with satellite reception. Our Verizon cell phone had good reception also. My only negative is that the Wi-Fi was only free for 1/2 per day. As another reviewer wrote, for the site rate there should be free unlimited Wi-Fi, especially since there are no other amenities such as a pool. We would definitely stay here again.

This park is small and pretty. The staff were extremely nice. However, we got major scratches on our motor home when we drove out! The Blue Spruce trees were huge, and the road was not wide enough to make a proper turn to avoid the branches (for our 40' rig). If you have a large motorhome, I would avoid this park.

This is a pretty little campground located next to Hwy. 20. The only time it was noisy was early in the morning. The rest of the time we enjoyed hearing the clop clop of the Amish horses and buggies passing by the campground. We had a pull through campsite, #48, that was easy enough to pull into but impossible to pull out of due to the very close proximity of big Spruce trees and a very narrow driveway and the 35' length of our rig. We had to back up to get out and had the campsites not been empty behind us, it would have been a challenge. This is a very handy location for visiting the many things to see and do in Shipshewana. We would stay here again but hopefully in a different site. We camped at Shipshewana Campground North Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This campground was very convenient to be "up close and personal" to the flea market. No amenities, but for a place to camp within walking distance for the flea market it was the ideal spot. We camped at Shipshewana Campground North Park in a Motorhome.

Nice quiet park but nothing for kids to do, not even a playground. Sites are tight and could be difficult to get into. Power posts are shared, and during a hot day the voltage dipped down to 106v. No fire rings either. They have a common area with a fire ring and firewood for a donation. Nice ice-cream stand in the campground and nice to hear the clip-clop of horses going down the road. Close to Shipshewana but their sister campground is in the town next to the flea market. We camped at Shipshewana Campground North Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is our second time camping here and we like it a lot. Lots of small trees between the sites gives privacy but doesn't interfere with our satellite view. A little noisy since it is on the intersection of two state routes but it quiets down at night. Wi-Fi is free for 30 minutes a day and then there is a charge for over the 30 minutes. Close enough to Shipshewana for easy access but far enough from the town to give a rural feel. We will return here. We camped at Shipshewana Campground North Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a nice little RV park with lots of grass and Spruce trees. There is adequate space between sites and plenty of trees to provide shade. We were in a pull-through in the first row and we didn't experience any power problems that others have mentioned. Our power pedestal was not shared and the voltage was solid. Be sure to ask if you want a satellite friendly site since many of the sites are in the trees. We enjoyed our stay here as well as the culture and history of the surrounding area. We would stay here again. We camped at Shipshewana Campground North Park in a Motorhome.
Nice location, well maintained park, but we had so many problems here that I would not recommend the place to anyone. Most problems were electrical, but were compounded by a lack of communication among park staff. Only 3 full hook up 50amp pull-through sites in the park, and the power pedestals are shared. The 50 connection goes to the first person to hook up, regardless of reservation. We had to move three times in two days. We camped at Shipshewana Campground North Park in a Fifth Wheel.
