The site we were on was sloped quite a bit, probably about 5" front to back, and 1" out side to side. It made it a bit of a challenge, but worked out OK. The two bathhouses are near the middle of the park. If you are on one of the ends, it is a bit of a walk. Bathhouses are NOT air conditioned, they are very clean, but could use a refresh. We camped at Shipshewana Campground - South Park in a Motorhome.

We came here for the KZ Rally, were camped close to each other and used the pavilion. Gravel site, gravel/paved roads, dish tailgater worked well. WiFi was available but worthless, slow & dropped signal. Laundry was clean 4 washers $1.75 & 4 dryers$1.50, couch, TV books etc. NO change machine! Nice RV park. We camped at Shipshewana Campground - South Park in a Fifth Wheel.

There is too much to see & do here, RV museum, Menno-Hoff Museum, Huge Flea Market. Yoder Meat, Red Barn, Amish in home dinning, Rise & Roll Bakery, E & S sales, and more. It would take a couple weeks to see it all.

Big rig accessible. We came here for the KZ Rally. Great place for a Rally, we were camped close to each other and used the pavilion. Gravel site, gravel/paved roads, rooftop satellite acquired a signal, Sprint cell worked fine. WiFi was available but not reliable. Washer/dryers available. Very clean, well maintained campground. It rained for 4 days, the back of our campsite became a mud pit. Same thing happened to a few sites, as people left the maintenance crews were right there taking care of the grounds. Drainage was good. Our site was long enough for our 40' 5th wheel and MDT. We would come back. We camped at Shipshewana Campground - South Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We were there for a rally & there were over 80 RVs belonging to our group. The park is nice and well maintained. The sites were close, so close that not every lot had a fire pit. Our slides did not touch, but it was close. We had events to attend but the campground itself had no extra curricular items. The laundry room was clean, but on the last day when I was washing, 2 out 4 machines were not working & there was a terrible odor permeating in the building. What makes this campground stick out is the location. Shipshewana is Amish country. It is close to shops & it is convenient for nice drives in countryside. We camped at Shipshewana Campground - South Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice campground for a stay of several nights while you explore the area but not a destination campground as it lacks a pool, spa, cable TV and pet run. Sites are crushed gravel and are reasonably level. Free Wifi. Quiet at night. Over the air TV is acceptable as is Verizon for Internet or phone. Interior roads are gravel so there is some dust. Only one location for trash near the exit. Plenty of room to walk pets. We camped at Shipshewana Campground - South Park in a Motorhome.

Discount for 8 night stay. Site was a gravel pull through with FHU and 50 amp. We had good Verizon cell/internet reception and good DishTV reception. The park was quiet at night. The laundry room was large and very clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful. This is our regular campground when we visit the South Bend/Elkhart area. We would stay here again.

The CG is about 20 miles from either Interstate 80 or 69 on acceptable state roads. It sits on a busy stretch of Rt. 5 through Shipshewana, home to many Amish and Mennonite families. There are numerous horse drawn buggies and bicycle riders along the route so care must be taken when traveling. Entry into the campground from Route 5 is easy and travel within the campground is easy on firmly packed gravel roads. We drive a 45 foot MH with a tow and easily traveled into, through, and out of the campground with the car attached. The CG is large with mostly level sites that are gravel. There was a great deal of rain while we were there and a few of the sites had areas of standing water, although our site did not. Distance between sites varies from small to moderate and the park has a quaint feel to it as it is surrounded by farms and is quiet and peaceful. The utilities are placed mid-site and worked well with adequate water pressure. Wi-Fi varied between slow and adequate for gentle internet surfing. There is no defined dog park but the grounds are lovely with many spots to walk with the dog. We did not use the cable or rest rooms so cannot comment on them. The laundry was clean and modern. The staff are very friendly and helpful both in person and on the phone. The office was renovated while we were there and the owners are working to make other improvements throughout the park. We will definitely stay here again when in the area. We camped at Shipshewana Campground - South Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed 5 nights. We paid $44/night plus 7% tax. With tax, avg rate was $47.08/night. Other reviewers describe this campground well. The online reservation process is easy. Check-in is efficient. The campground is big-rig friendly. All hook-ups worked perfectly. Verizon cell, Verizon mifi and DirecTV signals were good. There seemed to be an abundance of flies which was a bit annoying. CG wifi didn't work well for us. We were able to receive packages. The office staff was terrific. One of our packages arrived after we left and the staff forwarded it to us. This was way beyond the call of duty and we greatly appreciated it. This is our second stay and won't be our last. We camped at Shipshewana Campground - South Park in a Motorhome.

Ben's Soft Pretzels are the BEST! We stock up, store them individually in ziplocs and freeze them to reheat later. It works great. Ride the Pumpkinvine Trail from the CG. Go North on 5 (right turn out of CG), West on 250 (left turn) and then North on 850 (your first right). Hop on the trail and go as far as you'd like. It's safe, fairly flat and beautiful - no cars - just farmland, cows, horses, etc. Enjoy!!

Great staff, great location in Amish and RV capital area. The only negative is that due to gravel/dust roads - dry times are a bit dusty. Shade exists on many sites. Good room between site for a private campground. No individual site camp fires allowed. We camped at Shipshewana Campground - South Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed at the park for a Open Range Rally plus 3 additional days. Pricing reflects Rally Rate. The park is very convenient to the area and the personnel is very accommodating. We enjoy this park but we probably wouldn't spend the money if it wasn't for a rally. We camped at Shipshewana Campground - South Park in a Fifth Wheel.

I'm rating this place based on the area. Compared to a CG with a pool, paved roads & sites (resort kind of place) this would get a 5 out of ten. But considering the location it's one our favorites. Location has everything to do with that. Level sites, good power, no pesky trees. We camped at Shipshewana Campground - South Park in a Motorhome.

Easy to find and get in and out of. Nice Gravel roads. Very peaceful and quite. Geared towards older people camping with not many things for kids to do. Poor WIFI connection and very slow. No cable hookup. Our site 15E has good shade and privacy. No TV reception with our crank up antenna. Nice space between sites. Most sites are open and level. Excellent Verizon signal and 4G connection. Very friendly helpful staff with campground hosts. Staying 9 nights and would definitely stay here again.

Our site (36) was quite difficult to get into. We had to unload our tow vehicle from the dolly because we couldn't reach the utilities without the vehicle ending up in the road. We moved the vehicle to the front, but it was a tight fit. The site was also quite narrow. The utilities worked well. The site was level. The site was in full sun. This is a bare bones park. We didn't check out the restrooms. The park is convenient to restaurants and the flea market. We commented to the staff that our site was too small for our unit. They gave the the site next to us to park our car. We appreciated the gesture. We would probably look elsewhere on a return trip. The park was clean, but we prefer a bit of shade and more room.
