This is the largest and best maintained park in which we have stayed. It includes almost a mile of lakefront, a beach, and wonderful views of the island and the bridge. The sites are all very good and most with trees but the size depends on the location and probably price. Ours could easily have fit two RVs side-by-side comfortably. The sites are all quite level, grass and gravel, and include fire pits and a nice picnic table. Unfortunately, the store and arcade were closed off-season when we were there, but the town is just 3 miles away and it is loaded with restaurants and tourist shops. There is a very nice pool (also closed in September) and playgrounds. The campground includes cabins and plenty of paths for a walk or run. The layout into zones means you never realize you are in such a large campground. In the summer, it must be full of families and kids having a great time. They also offer discount tickets to the island. We would definitely stay here again.
This is beautiful park nestled into the south end of a lake with lots of trees, level sites, and very good roads. The Wi-Fi is excellent. The cable, store, and facilities are quite good. This is one of the nicest parks we have stayed in but your experience will depend on the space you are assigned. Most of the best are for long termers, but all are quite good though less so as you get farther from the lake and closer to the main highway. (By the way, the long term residents are vacationers and their sites are well kept and everyone is friendly.) There is access for boats, a beach, wildlife, and lots of kids enjoying the season. We would stay here again, even drive out of our way to get here.
This is a clean, well-kept campground that is well located to access all of the activities and attractions of Shipshewana. The sites are gravel and level, the spacing and grass are quite good, there and some small trees between the pull through sites. There are several pavilions and good green spaces. We enjoyed our stay and would come again. However, campers should note that this is not a self contained facility...the activities are in the town. So the park has no playground, no pool, no store, to propane refill. It does have a nice dog walk and it is next to a farm with beautiful horses and an electric fence. The flea market is less than a mile away and probably faster to walk to than to drive on a Tuesday and Wednesday. If you are coming to Shipsewana and want to be close to town in a relatively quiet campground, this is your best choice.
This is a very large, reasonable campground south of Cambridge, dedicated to the outdoors. The park runs deep. It has sites in the front, closest to the interstate, occupied mostly by short termers. Farther back is the pool (very nice) and bathhouse (very outdated and worn out but clean) and a cluster of long term (probably seasonal) campers who seem quite friendly. Behind that area is a large pond for fishing (catch and release) and swimming and it is surrounded by campers on the ridges beneath the trees, probably long termers also. Picnic tables are around the campgrounds. The hosts are friendly and efficient and the campground has propane, Wi-Fi (pretty good) and cable. Cell signals are strong. The overnight sites are pretty level and long enough for any rig. The highway is several hundred yards away and not too noisy. We'd stay again. Cambridge has a few sights to visit but not much open on a Sunday.
This is a very spacious park with two different sides. One side is on the hill, very wooded, dirt roads but nice shade. There are a few RVs deeply entrenched here...must be full timers. On the other side, there are large slots in a fairly flat field with little shade. A train actually cuts through the campground but with few trains and just one in the night. The staff is friendly and there is a nice pool. The bathroom and showers and laundry need an updating but they are clean. The campground is well located to visit Corning and Watkins Glen.
This is a very nice, rural campground on 100 acres of land along a small river. If you want to get away from the city, this one has it all...large sites with plenty of open space arranged in tiers above the river so you never get a sense of being in a huge campground. The are sites on the ridges, others in the woods, and some along the river, all primarily back in. There are good outdoors facilities including a large poor, volleyball, a play area, and video games. Nothing is paved and the level side-to-side is pretty good and the grass is in good shape. It is close to Mine Kill State Park and falls with a 2 mile hiking trail to there. The store, though small, includes local beers by the bottle! The negatives, which might be positives for those trying to get away, is that there is no TV and no Internet. One caution...the south entrance is blocked by a flood two years ago...enter off Rt 30.
This is a large, convenient and well kept campground. If you are not a permanent resident, you will be in a very long slot in a very large, un-shaded field. Spaces are fairly level, connections are good. The staff are friendly and helpful. The campground has plenty of space and kids seem to love it. The price is reasonable and the location good so we'd stay again. However, we do have some concerns. No cable, but good reception of main networks. Internet is very weak....I tested upload speed and it was 1/30th the speed of my cell connection, download was 1/10th. The one bath house is fair and very far from short term residents. The laundry is also far but seems nice (even soap for those who forgot) though a bit expensive. Still, this is the bargain in the area for full hook ups.
Both the positive and negative reviews are correct in some ways. This campground is by a farm and has fishing ponds, small animals like small horses and goats, a nice pool, playground and dog park. The store is small but also sells ice cream and light food. Access is through High Point Park, a good climb off the interstate. The campground has many long-termers and is much like summer camp. The overnight sites are gravel and weeds and close to level. People are very friendly here and there are summer activities....tonight is a square dance. Its not like anywhere else we've stayed. It is in the country, activity (and not tourist attraction) oriented, quiet and spacious. It could be great, but I doubt it is worth the investment of improving the roads/sites to make it so. There are no real over the air TV stations available other than religious shows. We could not get any major network. We'd come back.. Why not, I loved summer camp as a kid.
Beautiful, spacious, clean campground. It is tied to a motel where you check in and can use the amenities. The park includes a 1200 person amphitheater with occasional big name acts. The restrooms are large and clean. The place is hilly and the sites are gravel, but the roads are paved and the grass is green. No store other than the motel and vending machines. Free ice from a large ice maker near the restrooms. I don't know what there is to do in the area other than fish and antique, but the campground is worthy of a multi day stay.
Nice, quiet, and well run campground with lots of amenities. The pool is fun and the bathroom and showers are very nice. There are many long term residents but everyone is friendly. WiFi is good, cable TV is plentiful. This campground is off a small road so it is quiet with lots of green space.
Really beautiful, spacious, and well run campground. The pool is nice, the showers and bathrooms are excellent. The shade trees keep the campers cool and there's lots of green space. The family running this place is wonderful. This is my model for what a RV park should be.
Very nice hosts. Campground has many sites without sewer, but they have a dump station. There are many long term residents. The pool and pool area are very nice. The restrooms/showers are old and in need of updating. The biggest problem is the proximity to a very busy interstate. Also, the grounds need some work but they did cut the weeds while we were there and that helped the appearance. Good for a night. Convenient.
This park is relatively quiet and the hosts are quite helpful with suggestions about where to eat. The alternating parking means the front steps are within a few feet of the neighbor's. Oddly, the small miniature golf course has large animals who have taken up residence. The amenities are minimal and many of the residents are long timers. OK for a night.
