We camped here over the 4th of July weekend. The good points are that if you have children, there are many things for them to do and there is a decent beach and nice lake with slide. For adults there were also some organized fun things going on too. If you have a boat or jet ski, this would be a nice place to stay. Now the not so good. If you have a dog stay far away. You have to carry or transport in a wagon or car your dog to the dog area. You are not allowed to walk them anywhere in the park and they are not shy about letting you know that. This is primarily a seasonal campground and they clearly do not like having the few nightly campers there. We all felt like we were intruding. Even upon check-out, no one ever asked if we enjoyed our stay. There was some noise from 80/90 as you are pretty close, but wasn't real annoying. But tent campers, be aware, where they stick you, you are almost right on the highway itself. I would NEVER camp in a tent here. It is too bad. This is a very nice park and would normally be someplace we would return to, but no way, with the vibe we felt. - campingbug

I used to stay here when I was a child, now that I have my own children, I decided to try camping there with them. It is exactly as I remember it. Wooded shady lots, friendly people, activities on the weekend. There is one bath house with three showers, and three toilets and it was fairly clean. It was kind of slow during the week, but got very busy on the weekend. Nice beach, clean lake. Will definitely return in the future. - GMcComb

I stayed here Monday, and Tue, at begining of season, Very Quiet, peaceful. Staff very friendly, helpful. Tight, downhill entry road, gravel road after arrival on lake front sites. Nice lake views from upper level. - bfast54

We camped there this spring. It was very quiet during the week, and not too busy on the weekend. They had activities for the kids on the weekend, plus a playground, hiking, swimming, fishing, and games that could be checked out at the camp store. It's a nice small park that was family oriented and a great place to relax. We will definitely be camping there again. - Chic

Very nice county park. We stayed here for the weekend while their "Haunted Woods" weekend was going on. It was their end of season weekend. Lots of planned activities during that time. It was a bit cold, but we will definitely return when it is warmer. Sites a fairly level and big enough in size. Trees through out the park. There is also rustic sites on the upper and lower (lake side) level. Nice play ground for the kids and nature trails. Fishing boat rentals available. - burny

This resort is small with 60 sites. It is primarily a seasonal resort but they do rent by the week and the month. The resort sits on Barton Lake and each site has it's own pier. The sites are very large and are full hookup. Lots of grass and each site has a concrete pad. The resort has a very nice pool, basketball court and a playground. It sits right next door to the Jellystone Park which has water slides, mini-golf, etc that you can use by paying a daily usage fee. This resort was spotless, well maintained and quiet not to mention the seasonals are well maintained and very friendly to us during our stay. We would definitely recommend this resort if you are planning a week trip to northeast Indiana. - ppmccormick

We needed a place to stay for a night and this was convenient. We knew going in that it being a resort park it would not be our cup of tea, but it was in the right place and was easy to access the interstate. That being said, we prefer non-resort parks as we are approaching retirement age. Sites were very small and very close together. The supposed pull-thru we were assigned was a true challenge to get into. If not for the open field behind the site I would have had to drive around and back into this site due to the placement of trees. Many seasonal folks there and they would park their vehicles where ever they wanted. We were next to a seasonal site and after we got settled they had a visitor just park behind us where I had pulled into the site. Could not be bothered with saying anything as we just needed a place to sleep for the night. This is why we don't do resort type parks. We would not stay here again. - dhshaw

This is a resort park. Although it was quiet at night (they announce the quiet hours times each day) it's not quiet and peaceful during the day. It's jam-packed with activities for families. There are several playgrounds, jumping pillows, miniature golf, four swimming pools, water slides (for an additional fee) and a spectacular splash pad that will keep kids young and old (like 40 something old!) occupied for hours. Trash is picked up at your site three times a day; the camp store has a little of everything but a gallon of milk cost $5.99 so it can be pricey. The snack stand was OK but limited and it seemed like they kept running out of things, especially the ice cream flavors. The arcade was poor. Many of the games were old and out of order, and the elderly woman who staffed it actually argued with us when we lost two tokens in one of the machines. You can also rent pedal carts and pedal boats. The sites are nicely sized and although there's no real privacy, there's decent separation and numerous trees to afford some shade. The shower stalls were clean. Softened water would be nice (at this price) but not a big deal. Golf carts were numerous but at $55 a day with a two day minimum, we declined. We were in site 543 and although we could hear the interstate, it didn't keep us up at night. Perhaps those in a tent would experience otherwise. We will probably return next summer because the kids had a blast. - Fdwt994

I have mixed emotions about this place. I can give it a 10 for fun factor. There are many seasonal campers at this campground which is fine. But all of the unsupervised kids is not. Had a hard time enjoying the water activities due to this. The "lifeguards" did not see this to be a problem. For the rate we paid, in my opinion, should have included all water activities. The water slides are extra. We also did not realize this park parallels with the highway. Our site was the last row the noise was tolerable but you knew you were next to a major highway. The pools were very clean along with the shower house but I did not use them. Nice park for the kids but a tic overpriced for the entire experience. - pacevette

Park was clean, had lakefront, off lake, tenting, and pull through sites. Playgrounds and picnic shelters were available for groups. Most of the park were clean seasonal sites. We stayed on the closing weekend, so there were no activities but the calendar listed many during the open seasons. - dalenoel

A nice park for an overnight stay. Beautiful to walk around in. Overnighters stay in long pull-throughs on grass, but they are mostly level. Hosts are friendly. Water spigots are centered between two sites, so one RV has to run the water hose under the RV to hook up... not particularly a problem. Easy in, easy out. - Gator67

Beautiful state park with great access from I-69. Nice paved roads and helpful signage provide good access to camping area. There is a fresh water fill station before campground entrance. Only one campground area (300) was open, the others were closed for the winter. We followed the written instructions and picked a site, then paid at the park office during office hours (our cost was for out-of-state rates +tax). We chose a level pull through (#388). The rolling terrain and some standing water made some of the sites undesirable for RVs. The 30 amp service at the site was fine. The dump station was situated in one of the loops so we had to drive around the whole 300 area to get to it and it worked as designed. The state park is really lovely. Lots of walking trails, an inn with a restaurant, cabins, on the shores of a lake, winter activities, and beautiful Mother Nature. We would not hesitate to return, especially at this time of year when it was not crowded. - Janau NC

The park is not unlike all of the other state parks we've visited. They are all beautiful in their own right and Pokagon was definitely no exception. It is hilly, (mostly) green, and located on the shores of Lake James (a public lake). The campsites were large and campsite 429 was huge. We think that site 429 use to be two sites that they made into one because it had a large whole in the center of it were another burn pit use to be. Most of the site was dirt with a few occasional grass patches. The actual camping pad was also just dirt, unlike the gravel found at most state parks. The sites were also fairly shaded with lots of trees covering most of the grounds. The playground was nice for the littler kids, but our six year olds were pretty bored with it after a few minutes. The park did offer a wide variety of activities. The have a cool refrigerated toboggan run but it is only operated throughout November-February. They have a pretty nice little nature center with a lot of live turtles, snakes, fish, and frogs. The beach is very nice, but small. The water is pretty clean, shallow, and has a sandy bottom. We don't want to be harsh, but he bathhouses are gross. The showers were dingy and dirty, paint was peeling off the walls, the floor tiles were cracked and dirty, and there were lots of cob webs. There are two dump stations located in the various loops of the campground. This is a bit odd as they are located in the campground loops, like on the main drag to exit the loop, which means that on Sunday morning there is a huge traffic jam of campers blocking the road right in the middle of the campground. On top of that, the dump station in the loop we camped in was pretty small. Our 30 ft camper barely fit in the station. - Lets Go Camping They Said

Generally nice campground in a State Park with lots of family-oriented amenities and activities. Roads are paved. The gravel sites range from open and sunny to shaded with good privacy, and were mostly level. Note that not all loops have electric hookups, so pay attention when choosing your site. Only one modern bathhouse was open this early in the season. The restroom facilities were as clean as could be expected given their age, but the showers were rather grim with lukewarm water at best. The shower curtain appeared to be from last season, which is odd, as you would expect that to be one of the first things they would replace when preparing for the new year. Otherwise, we had a very pleasant, restful stay for one night. - A Frame

This park primarily has seasonally campers. Not big rig friendly our 42 ft motor home was difficult to get in and out. Lots of pine trees so it was required to sweep the roof and slide covers before we left. - Buspuppies

We stayed here with our church group. This is mostly a seasonal campground as there are many people here for that on this small lake. They have about 30+ campsites for weekenders or travelers. As they seem to fill up on weekends call ahead to get a site. The sites are just 30 amp and water for our type of unit. They do have a few sites with full hook ups but do charge more for the sewer. Extra people are also another charge. We have enjoyed coming here for a weekend campout for several years. - MINomad

We stayed for two nights. The park is near Howe, the home of Howe military academy. The entire area has pretty farms and quite a few small lakes. The roads leading to the park were good. The roads throughout the park are gravel. They were washboard when we arrived, however, after a heavy rain, there was a tractor smoothing them most of the morning. There is a large inviting pool, but I did not use the pool. I looked at the bathrooms and showers near the pool, but I did not use them either. They need updating, but looked clean. The staff is friendly and helpful. This is a resort park that is owned by the members. There are a few sites near the front of the park that are rented out to others. The sites are grass with water and electric. Not all of them have 50a, but we were able to rent a 50a site. The electric appeared quite new and modern. Some of the sites are uphill at the back, but we made it work.
Shortly after we arrived it rained a lot in a short period of time, flooding some of the sites along the entry road. Just keep that in mind if it looks like rain. We had no problem with our site, but there was one a couple down from us that had standing water for several hours. The water is well water and is good. The dump station was easy to access and is lower than ground level making it one of the easiest dump stations I have found in a long time! We would stay here again if in the area. It is about 10 miles to Shipshewana. - ahmavic

We pulled in and took a space of our choice. The sites are level and grassy. It was raining when we came in but the ground was firm. The attendant came by after 7 and registered us. They have about 40 spaces for us transients. The park has well over 200 spaces for permanent residents. The entrance road has numerous pot holes when we came in but a tractor is working the road as I write. The pool is pretty and the playground is nice. WiFi is good where we are. Only water and electric are available, with several dump stations on site. Large field of soy beans behind us and the park is filled with large trees. Clear paths for satellite dish pointing. We would stay here again. - Coy R

Spent two nights here visiting RV Surplus stores and going to the Shipshewana Flea Market.
Nice shaded back-in site. Water and Electric only. Restrooms and showers located across the dirt road next to the swimming pool. This appears to be mainly a summer fill-timer / weekend resort.
Passport and other discount clubs park along the fence on the left as you enter. Great value for your money in our opinion.
Only downside was we were not able to pick up any over the air TV.
As mentioned in previous review, reservations now accepted. - thetravelkids

Nice park. Mostly seasonal campers. The kids loved the beach and the playground. The chain of lakes that this campground is on is the real attraction and is very fun if you have a boat. There are boat rentals available on the lakes but not at the resort. - RogersClan

We spent one night here while traveling using Passport America. We are on a large grassy hill site overlooking I69. This is a convenient overnight stop just off the expressway. The site is open so our rooftop TV dish works. No sewer hook up. - big greg
