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. 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.

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.

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 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.

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 camped at Shipshewana Campground - South Park in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Shipshewana Campground - South Park in a Fifth Wheel.

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.

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

This was our first trip out with our new truck and RV. The campground is easy to access and located in the heart of Shipshewana, IN. The park itself was well kept. The Workamper is a great guy. Very helpful and stops by to chat on a regular basis......if you are sitting out. The campground will supply a portable fire pit, if you'd like to have a fire. They can accommodate anything from tents (only a few sites) to pull throughs with full service (the majority of the sites). There are large fields with horses on both the north and south side of the park with woods on the east side. BTW, if you stay 6 mights you get the 7th free, essentially bringing the nightly rate down to approximately $40/night. We camped at Shipshewana Campground - South Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice campground. We have a big rig and most sites are level. Interior roads easy to navigate. Peaceful. Two sides are horse farms and the back side is a dairy farm. We stayed three days but would stay longer if we could. If reserving online and your selection shows no/few sites available I would call them. Might have been a glitch but the system showed full so we called and were able to get in. When we arrived there were MANY MANY open spots throughout our stay that met our criteria. We camped at Shipshewana Campground - South Park in a Motorhome.

The Amish Ease market is very large and interesting. We ate at the Blue Gate and found it just OK despite all the hype. The food was good, so was the service. It did not have the "wow" factor I was expecting. This was the buffet lunch so maybe menu service is different.

Clean, tidy and close to flea market, shops and restaurants. Could hear the clip-clop of buggies and bull frogs in the pond. WiFi and Verizon service acceptable. Gravel roads and sites. Although we didn't use bath houses we did check them out and they were very clean. We were called away for an emergency and management very understanding.

We 'overnighted' in this sparkling campground in the heart of Indiana's Amish country. Located just off east-west Highway 20, the park is clean, neat and quiet. Traffic noise is almost nonexistent, but you can hear the gentle clip-clop of the horses pulling the little black buggies along the highway. The interior roads are gravel as is each site. Roads are easy to navigate, even for big rigs and the sites are mostly level. Sites are spacious and long enough that we could leave our truck hooked to our 40-ft 5th wheel with room to spare. Many pull thru and back-in sites as well. Although we didn't take advantage, there is shopping and restaurants within easy walking distance of the campground. We camped at Shipshewana Campground - South Park in a Fifth Wheel.
