Great location to visit Shipshewana and area; you can actually walk to the nearby restaurants and shops. We were in the back row of pull thrus near washroom/laundry - they are all long. We are 56 feet without unhooking had lots of room on the site and lots of room to pull in and out of campground. Nice and quiet and clean sites, no seasonals with their stuff out. Showers have push button, which is annoying, but they are clean. We have been here before and prefer this park. Internet was adequate to check emails. No cable TV provided, but we could pickup on the antennae and satellite (no trees obstructing). We camped at Shipshewana Campground - South Park in a Motorhome.

Ladies go to Yoder's Department store. Ate at Pumpkinvine Cafe, excellent sandwiches and cheesecakes. The area is really nice for motorcycle riding. The Amish country is beautiful and well kept.

We stayed here the last week the campground was open for the season, so there were areas that were already closed, but the park was beautiful. We stayed one night (site 100) and then took our rig to the factory for warranty work and then we came back and spent two nights (site 93). We had some chairs and a ladder that would have been in the way for the work done on the rig, and the campground was nice enough to let us store them on site while we were gone. Laundry facility was great. Push button shower was unique, although not entirely fun. This was a great place, and the area is definitely a place we enjoyed. We camped at Shipshewana Campground - South Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is an excellent park with long level pull through sites, wi fi was very slow to the point of being of no use, but the park is clean and very nice, convenient to local attractions we would stay here any time we are in the area. We camped at Shipshewana Campground - South Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tidy well maintained RV park. Level sites. Several pavilions and grassy areas within the campground give it a spacious feel. A short drive to the walking district in Shipshewana. ATT cell phone and satellite was good, wifi was good with repeaters on towers placed around the park. We camped at Shipshewana Campground - South Park in a Motorhome.

Had to pay for entire stay in full at time of reservation. Their cancellation policy is pretty strict. Read terms carefully. Verizon cell, Sprint Mifi and DirecTV all worked well (not many big trees in CG). Park wifi worked ok depending on time of day and all hook-ups worked perfectly. Online reservation system was easy, check-in was smooth and the site was fairly level. Oddly there is only one trash dumpster for the entire CG located near the entrance. The park is close to all sites in Shipshewana and an easy drive to nearby towns. We enjoyed our stay here and would stay again. We camped at Shipshewana Campground - South Park in a Motorhome.

You need to pre-arrange a tour of the Entegra factory. The Newmar factory tour doesn't require a reservation but check website for days/times. RV Hall of Fame is fun. The best part is going inside many of the RV's. The town of Shipshewana is awesome. Amish cooking/baking is delicious. Highly recommend Bread Box and Yoder's Meat/Cheese.

Stayed here for 9 nites for Open Range RV Rally. Staff, grounds, everything was great. Close to all attractions etc. I have never seen such immaculate showers and laundry rooms. Lots to see in area, large 900 vendor Flea Market every Tues-Wed. Will stay again. Highly recommend. We camped at Shipshewana Campground - South Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Staff very helpful and considerate. Great place to stay, except hook ups were not good for our rig. Could not use sewer until we left and backed up so hose would reach. Had to use two hoses to connect to water. We camped at Shipshewana Campground - South Park in a Motorhome.

Spent a week in early August 2016 at our Redwood Rally. The park is very clean and well kept. The only negative is the roads get dusty when dry, and they were dry all week.

Space was very spacious, level, and plenty long for the truck and 41' 5th wheel. We camped at Shipshewana Campground - South Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Deep in Amish country with all the associated charm and a few drawbacks. Amish sabbath begins on Saturday, so shopping is limited on weekends. Otherwise, very enjoyable area with unique furniture, and great meat market.

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.

Sites are close together, perhaps 10 feet between each. Sites were level. Due to narrow roads and ill-planted trees, egress from some sites is a challenge especially if the camp site across the road is occupied. No shade to speak of. No activities for children.

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.
