We have stayed here before and it is our favorite campground when in the area. Staff is super and lots of spaces. We had no problem getting around with our 45 footer and tow. We camped at Shipshewana Campground - South Park in a Motorhome.

Easy big rig access and long level pull through sites for any size rig. We used this as our base to explore the area. Quiet, pretty setting that is just a 20 minute walk to town. We camped at Shipshewana Campground - South Park in a Motorhome.

Blue Door restaurant in town is really good. RV Museum, Newmar Plant Tour, Amish Acres, South Bend and Studabaker Museums all worth your time.

The park was in a nice part of the country with horses nearby, and there was lots of grass between sites. The pull thru we had was long enough for us to park our truck in front of it. The front office hours are short, I think between 11-5, so plan on getting there early if you want to talk to a live person. The park was very quiet, with no traffic noise or trains anywhere nearby. Most stores are closed on Sunday, unless you drive a ways to Elkhart. We camped at Shipshewana Campground - South Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Interesting Amish town with horse and buggies going every where. We went to a big RV show in Elkhart, Indiana. There are many arts and crafts and furniture stores within a couple of miles. I loved hearing the cadence of the horses hoofs while they were trotting on the streets with Amish buggies in tow.

Stayed in our Class A, 45' Entegra. Roads are easy to navigate & sites are plenty long for big rigs and tow vehicles. Pavilions for group. Restrooms clean, staff friendly, full hook ups, 30 and 50amp sites plus tent sites. Would have rated higher if roads were paved and/or sites were paved. Rain keeps the dust down. Most sites have 'some' shade, but few sites have any obstruction to satellite. Verizon pretty good. Great park to see the area, flea market, Amish attractions and visit the RV manufacturers. Would stay here again. We camped at Shipshewana Campground - South Park in a Motorhome.

Head south a few miles and visit Yoder popcorn for a free sample. Buy as much as you can keep refrigerated or frozen and it will last. Lots of other good, tasty places in the area.

Our camp site and driveways were gravel and muddy. Sites are barely long enough for our unit. Wifi was useless. They tell you on the phone that refunds are available with 24 hours notice however we were denied a refund for 2 nights stays. We had to leave because a water line broke and flooded our camper. They had plenty of notice to rent the site to someone else. We camped at Shipshewana Campground - South Park in a Fifth Wheel.

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.

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 stayed here for one night a few years ago & have been wanting to go back since. This time we had our 40' motorhome & stayed for a week. Great location close to shopping, restaurants & the flea market in Shipshewana. Quiet location too, the husband was able to work from the RV with no problems. Only dealt with the staff when we checked in & they were very friendly, lots of nice grassy areas to walk the dog with convenient drop off boxes for the waste. No pool which was fine with us & no individual fire pits at sites but there was a community pit if you wanted a fire. We didn't use the bathroom/laundry facilities so not sure what those looked like but everything seemed cleaned & well picked up. Overall we enjoyed it here & will be back again when in that area. We camped at Shipshewana Campground - South Park in a Motorhome.

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.
