Stayed here in a 42 ft. class A on packed gravel in site #108 next to laundry. Sites are very level & utilities worked well. Great Amish community with great eating establishments. We camped at Shipshewana Campground - South Park in a Motorhome.

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.

Overall Rating:

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.

Stayed here while having work completed on the 5Th wheel in Topeka. Very friendly staff and an older but busy campground. Our site was level and staff had offered a different site but warned us it sloped. Sites were quite narrow and it meant stepping onto wet grass getting out of Rig, next door sites are close and no privacy between. Wifi was very slow to the point of not being able to load pages at some times, over air TV offers a few channels with good reception. There is a large laundry on site along with community pavilion and seating areas. Wash rooms were older but certainly clean, showers were small cubicles with just a plastic curtain and, although I didn't use them, seemed serviceable. Would certainly stay again.

Lots of stores and places to eat very near to the campground - if you go to the E & S bulk food supermarket be aware they don't take credit or debit and we couldn't find an ATM so had to put our groceries back. Store opens at 7.30 and closes 5.30pm so don't leave shopping too late! Visited 5 & 20 restaurant which was super value and good food - closes at 8pm though. More stores available in Topeka but close for lunch and don't have late hours either. Gas and Diesel cheaper here also.

We stayed here a month for teaching NRVIA classes, factory tours, and other RV educational activities. THe park is very close to the town of Shipshewana, the weekly flea market, the grapevine bike trail, and eating opportunities which are why many come to town.

We arrived at about 6.30pm and without a reservation. I was surprised to find the CG almost full but the very pleasant lady at the reception was able to find us a long enough pull-through for our 40' 5er for a couple of nights. The sites are fairly level gravel & dirt with 30 & 50amp power, water and a sewer drop. Each site has a picnic table and fire pits can be borrowed from the office. The power supply remained steady and caused us no problems. Sites are separated by a small strip of mowed grass but there isn't much in the way of privacy. Two washroom blocks are old but clean and the showers, although we did not use them appeared Ok. There is a laundry in one of the two blocks but again we did not use this. Interior roads are gravel and easy to navigate. There are no trains nearby and very little in the way of traffic noise while we stayed there. Wi-Fi is included in the price and does not require a password although for most of the time it wasn't particularly strong but just enough for emails and browsing. After two nights we left while our RV was being worked on nearby and we then returned for a third night before setting off the following morning. This place is adequate for a two or three night stop and I would consider staying here again if ever we are in the area. We camped at Shipshewana Campground - South Park in a Fifth Wheel.
