This was our first stop on trip to Yellowstone from PA. Overpriced as compared to other KOAs we've visited (6 as of this review). Won't be stopping on our return trip. We are the Griswolds On Vacation. We camped at South Bend / Elkhart North KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We have been camping for over 30 years and this KOA was the friendliest, most helpful and accommodating campground we have ever been to. We had a complicated situation because our RV was getting repaired and we we not sure when it would be finished. The owners and staff went out of their way to make sure we had a place to stay, and this was the week of Notre Dame University's season opener and hotels and RV parks are packed! The campground itself is very pretty and clean with level sites. It's very shady so satellite won't work but the cable channels are extensive. We stayed in a motor home and will definitely return. We camped at South Bend / Elkhart North KOA in a Motorhome.

Very attractive campground with tall beautiful trees. Driving through the campground, as well as situating on our site required care because of the trees, but they weren't a serious problem for us. (The people next to us did need to unhook to maneuver around trees when leaving.) Our site was long and level. The price seemed a little high even without adding the extra for our family staying overnight with us a couple of nights. We camped at South Bend / Elkhart North KOA in a Motorhome.

Nice wooded park. Several slots have tight entrance or exits. Large pine trees at entrance to site caused some back and forth work to get in. Staff helpful. Cars parked oddly in sites made it harder in to site. We camped at South Bend / Elkhart North KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Smaller and and older KOA, but don't let that sway you from staying here. All staff was very friendly from check-in to check-out. My son loved the fresh cookies and my dog loved her biscuit. Escorted to site by someone knowledgeable. Great at guiding bigger rigs around the trees and lining them up properly. We got situated fine, but watched the staff guide a Class A into a site and line him up for utilities and so his slides wouldn't hit the trees. Staff made a point of making rounds and checking to see if everyone was doing OK. Had a weather warning while we were there and they went to every rig asking people to shelter at the office....providing rides in golf cart if needed. Pool was small but clean. We had a pull thru, FHU, picnic table and a fire pit. We camped at South Bend / Elkhart North KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed here for a few days while my truck was serviced at a local dealer. Staff was excellence and friendly. Always pleasant and helpful. Sites were clean and well organized. While the sites were not spaced a great distance apart the space was very well used and made for pleasant camping. Campground was only about one third full while we were there I believe even if full the space would be adequate. Laundry on premises was handy as we had been traveling for a week. Roads were fairly well maintained and wide enough that maneuvering my fifth wheel was not a problem. There is a nearby train track that is somewhat busy during the day but traffic stops at night. We will keep this campground in mind and will likely return. We camped at South Bend / Elkhart North KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Almost all sites are pull through, long and level. Shady. There are a couple of back-ins and they are pretty unlevel and small. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Camp store is well stocked. Close to shopping and restaurants. Nice pool and laundry. Showers are private stalls and very clean. Bathroom VERY clean. Great place to stop for 1 night while travelling. We camped at South Bend / Elkhart North KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Studebaker museum in South Bend was very interesting. It took us about 3 hours to go through, but my first car was a Studebaker so I read alot of the information. Also the RV Hall of fame/museum was interesting. Lots of restored vintage campers. We went to both on rainy days...they are inside activities. You are close to Amish country here. If you have time, drive down to Nappanee for shopping/eating.

Very long level sites with hook ups just right. Good cable and Wi-Fi. Did not use bathrooms and showers. Staff was very helpful and pool was nice. Just a little pricy for an overnighter. Would look somewhere else if in area. We camped at South Bend / Elkhart North KOA in a Motorhome.

If you like brewpubs, check out Evil Czech Brewery and Public House in Mishawaka. Good selection of craft beers, interesting and tasty dishes, moderate prices.

This is just a quick update from our most recent visit in September. We still love this park but unfortunately booked during a Notre Dame home game. The park understandably was jam packed, noisier and full of smoke from all the campfires which make sleeping difficult. The other days of our stay were fine...but this is just a heads up to check the ND home game schedule before you book! We camped at South Bend / Elkhart North KOA in a Motorhome.

Located approx. 3 miles off I-80 with good roads. Heavily wooded RV park, heavily wooded sites but clean and well maintained. Met at gate, and escorted to site. Our site was pull thru, gravel/grass, close to level. Most sites have trees on both sides, however we were located on site 36, and able to get limited satellite. Our 40' rig plus tow just fit on the site without unhooking. Wifi was good. There is a camp store, pool, two dog parks and plenty of kids activities. Laundry room is behind office with older machines but good. We were here during the week, so very quiet. Located in a business park area, and a few restaurants located within walking distance. There is a train nearby and can be heard at park. Located close to South Bend, Elkhart and the Michigan border. Assume that is why it's a bit pricey. We stayed one night. We camped at South Bend / Elkhart North KOA in a Motorhome.

If you like being in the trees, this is the campsite for you. We were not happy there. Just too many trees and the park was very dark. It was difficult to manuever our 40ft 5th wheel when departing. The Internet was on and off most of the time and when on line, it was extremely slow. The cable was terrible, thank goodness for OTA. Not one site was satellite friendly. Fifth eight dollars a night was a "rip-off." We would not stay there again. We camped at South Bend / Elkhart North KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We only pulled in for an overnight stay but the campground is very clean and well maintained. The owners are very friendly and informative. The sites are narrow and some are close to the trees. We couldn't open our awning completely because it hit a pine tree. The4 sites are cramped but do allow for a large rig. You Get a cookie at check in for the kids and they have Bagels and coffee in the office for breakfast. Very nice Campground. We would stay here again.

Enjoy your fresh baked cookie at checkin. Good location for having some RV work completed in nearby Elkhart or Mishiwaka. Be aware for expensive site costs per night when Notre Dame is playing. Sites are very treed so we would not want to come in after dark. You are led into your site and you want to be as the trees are close enough when swinging in. Really no trouble in daylight. The pine trees were losing their pine needles and we did not open our slides because it was too messy. we did blow the needles off the roof before we left. Railroad nearby but it was quiet enough at night. We camped at South Bend / Elkhart North KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Visit the RV Museum about 1/2 hour away in Elkhart. It is a time capsule of trailers and motorhomes. Many original units that you can walk into. You can walk to 2 restaurants nearby. Coppercreek Cafe was excellent for breakfast.
