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. We camped at Shipshewana Campground - South Park in a Motorhome.

Meno-Hof, the Mennoite/Amish Museum is across the street, Tuesday and Wednesday is Flea Market day, just up the road and traffic does get congested. Also the Blue Gate Theater and Restaurant are a must. There is a Mexican restaurant in town now. Numerous buggies tie up at E & S just down the road from us. This is a quaint town and a nice introduction to the Amish lifestyle.

Best location within the Amish community, full hookups, good 50 amp, wifi but no cable. Limited tv antenna channels. Very nice staff and grounds are maintained. Did not use any laundry or bath facilities. They did not require a deposit to hold reservations. Park was not full. If you need Rv repair, tv, satellite repair, there is a auto and mobile RVshop repair company in Eckhart and the Rv resort office can give you the contact information - they came to the Rv park and did some work on my Directtv receiver. The Amish have a "bulk food" and semi-farmers market just about 2 blocks from the Rv resort with great jams, jellies and all sort of food items- just check the expiration date on anything you buy. We camped at Shipshewana Campground - South Park in a Motorhome.

Easy day trips to surrounding area attractions. The Amish are very polite people and have a bulk food store minutes away. The Amish do drive their horse and buggies on the roads.

This is a great campground, in a great location. If you are familiar with Shipshewana you know about the HUGE Flea Market and all of the wonderful shops and Amish made items. The campground is located just south of where the Flea Market is held. It is about 2 blocks from the Shipshewana Event Center and two sides of the campground butt up to horse pastures.(no odors) Out the back window of our travel trailer we watched two draft horses graze. Since I am a horse person this made me a very happy camper. The campground is ground stone roadways and pads. Most sites are full hook-ups but we did see that they do have some electric only. There is thick and mowed grass next to the pads, a few mature trees are disbursed through the park. Nice showers and bathrooms and a very nice laundry room. Check in was quick and easy with a very friendly staff. We paid $42.00 a night which is a little higher than what we like to pay however for the area it is very reasonable. We highly recommend this campground. We camped at Shipshewana Campground - South Park in a Travel Trailer.

We were excited to finally go to the flea market...we have heard many others talk about it. The flea market was huge but we were a little disappointed in the items for sale...seems like almost all vendors have same items as the next vendor. We did buy a few items for the camper and had some delicious home made chocolate ice cream.

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. We camped at Shipshewana Campground - South Park in a Motorhome.

Good place to park the rig for a night or two. Nice roads in and out. No pot holes or mud. Level gravel/asphalt roads and pads. Good WiFi signal. Flea market on Tuesdays and Wednesdays is less than a mile from the park. Would stay here again. We camped at Shipshewana Campground - South Park in a Motorhome.

This is a great campground regardless of the reason you are staying there. Power, water, sewer, roads, wifi, tv all good and we can't enough about the staff. We would and are going back. The sound of the clopping horses lull you to sleep every night! We camped at Shipshewana Campground - South Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Be sure and go to Bontragers Surplus in White Pigeon, Mi just about 10 miles. They have all things rv surplus and pricing is great.

Our original reservation for this campground was to stay only 2-nights. However, we enjoyed it so much that we extended our reservation twice, staying for a total of one week. The campground is located on State Road 5 in Shipshewana. Entrance/Exit is very wide and easy to navigate and the staff is very friendly. Check-in is an easy process and you are given a very well detailed map of the park to navigate to your site. Interior roads are gravel, easy to navigate, and very well maintained. All RV sites are pull-through (with the exception of perimeter sites), good sized, level, and long enough for big-rigs that are towing. The majority of the sites are full service (water, electric, and sewer), but they do offer some sites for those that desire electric or water and electric only. Additional amenities include shower facilities, restrooms, laundry and a dog walk. Free Wi-Fi is available and seemed to work well at our site (site # 96). The park is largely open to the sky so it's great for those that have satellite TV. Fire rings are not provided, however, above ground fire rings are allowed, or one can use the community fire pit near the gazebo. The park is conveniently located close to the Shipshewana Flea Market (held on Tuesdays and Wednesdays), as well as several other shopping, dining, and entertainment venues. We stayed here for a total of 7-nights in our Class A motorhome and would highly recommend this campground to others. We camped at Shipshewana Campground - South Park in a Motorhome.

Not a lot to do in the area unless you enjoy shopping and eating. Town gets very crowded with lots of traffic on flea market days. Yoders Meat and Cheese is great, and the RV hall of fame in nearby Elkhart is worth a trip. Enjoy a scenic drive in the country. Beautiful area.

Great park for the Shipshewana Flea Market on Tuesday and Wednesday. All camp site utilities are great, good 50 amp, water and sewer. OTA TV works great, get many channels. Easy check in and pleasant. Interior roads are gravel but well maintained. Sites very level. We camped at Shipshewana Campground - South Park in a Motorhome.

Beautiful park. Immaculate. Great service from hosts. Easy in/out. Pull-through was plenty long enough for 35 ft plus tow vehicle. No fire rings at sites so if you buy their firewood, you'll need a portable fire pit or you'll have to sit a the group shelter where there's a fire ring. A little pricey. Would rate it a 10 if they had a pool. We camped at Shipshewana Campground - South Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Very, very narrow spots of unlevel gravel. Floods easily to the point our sewer hookup was under water. Staff was rude at check-in, because rally attendees were upset at being promised certain spaces and everyone moved. Folks traveling together and promised side by side locations were spread throughout park. Very bad experience. We camped at Shipshewana Campground - South Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We spent three nights here meeting up with business associates. We were expected and treated very well at check-in. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. I saw recent comments about rudeness, etc. I believe people respond in kind when rudeness is dished out.

There was a lot of rain that moved through the area creating many hardships for the RV park. These are issues beyond any one's control. Rating the park poorly for unforeseen circumstances is unfair. We were there during one of these storms. We saw the flooding.

Electric service was good, water pressure was good and the sewer worked fine on our site. The site was long and we had no trouble navigating the park. We watched a 40' 5th wheel pull next to use in a very long pull through site. It took him 20 minutes to get into the site. The sites are not narrow. You just have to know how to handle your RV. This guy had no clue. Don't blame the park, just learn how to drive an RV in order to properly navigate into any site! We camped at Shipshewana Campground - South Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

This park is located just down the street from the huge flea market that takes place during the summer months on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. The Blue Gate Restaurant is also about a mile north of the park. Both of these venues have great food opportunities.

Biking in the area is also a great activity as the Pumpkinvine trail is nearby and runs all the way to Elkhart, IN if you want to ride a lot of miles.

This is the heart of Amish country so the country charm is apparent everywhere.

The site we were initally directed to was too short for our motorhome (45'). There was a rally going on so there was not a good choice of sites. We selected a very narrow and short back in site. The gravel section of the site was too narrow to fit both the passenger and drivers side wheels on gravel. The rear tag and drive axle were beyond the gravel section. Generally this would be OK except for the rain. We had to call a tow truck to get out of the spot.

On the bright side, the rally that was there had a couple of mobile mechanics that provided a lot of good input. They deserve a big thank you.

The park is fine except that if you have a big, heavy and long motorhome, you may want to go somewhere else. The campground folks had assured us we would fit. They said they have big motorhomes in there all the time. We camped at Shipshewana Campground - South Park in a Motorhome.
