This is an older park that is kept in good condition. The restrooms are very clean and the grounds are well maintained. This campground is in a good location for activities in the Amish area of Shipshewana. The traffic noise from the highway didn’t bother us. We looked at the two other campgrounds in town and liked this one since you are out of the busy part of town. Sites are gravel with grass, shrubs and trees providing a natural setting. We camped at Shipshewana Campground North Park in a Travel Trailer.

Make sure to stop at E&S bulk food supermarket on the south side of Shipshewana. Good assortment of hard to find products and very interesting store! Check out the Rise N Roll Bakery on RT 20. Take a guided tour of Notre Dame University, about 50 minutes west.

Arrived late. Owners very accommodating. Site was level. Plenty of room at the sites and enough space for the tow. Fire pit and bench at our site. Sites were gravel and level. Easy CG to get too. We arrived the first week of the season and the CG seemed ready to go. Wifi was adequate. Some of our family stayed in the cabins. The cabins were quite nice. We camped at Shipshewana Campground North Park in a Motorhome.

CG is 5 minutes out of town. Plenty to do for a long weekend. We ate at several Amish restaurants which were all quite good. There are several strip malls in town selling Amish items. Be aware that it is a dry county. They do not sell alcohol in town. Nearest liquor store is at least a 15 minute drive. Other than that, Shipshewana seemed like a quiet, cozy, sleepy town.

#52: $40.66 for a 30 amp EW pull-through This is a lovely little campground with good gravel interior roads. Most sites are back-in, with various combinations of electric-water or full service. Arriving without a reservation we were given an electric-water pull-through site in the row closest to state road 120 - that has traffic throughout the night. This may not be an issue in rows further back from the highway. Sites have decent spacing, with each site having a gravel driveway, a grass section with picnic table and most sites have a fire gill. We camped at Shipshewana Campground North Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We just spent 1 night. $40 total for a pull thru water and electric. We were there to get our RV refrig over hauled. The repair shop was just 1/2 mile south of the CG. The sites are gravel with grass on both sides of the drive. Picnic table in the grass. No concrete. Grass was a tad high so shoes got a little wet just moving around hooking and un-hooking. It's pretty close to a main highway so some truck noise all night. Not too bad. We actually slept windows open with a ceiling exhaust fan running. Closed up with the AC on the noise whouldn't have been a problem. VERY friendly check in. Quick and easy. Easy in and out. 2 entrances. Would definitely stay here again. Some 'skeeters so wear your deet if you hang out. That's just northern Indiana in the summer. We camped at Shipshewana Campground North Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

The little town of Shipshewana is a wonderful place. If you like history we highly recommend http://www.mennohof.org/ The Menno-Hof visitor center. 2 hours to see it all. Best $7 we spent. It's a multi-media tour with hands on of the Amish and Menonite story. Very good. Right in the heart of town. A great little walking town.

When reserving the campsite online, l provided the length of the RV. Little did I know that the result would be a site adequate for the RV only - not the tow vehicle too! If you desire a small site, 6"out of level, very close to your neighbor's campfire, with highway traffic noise all night, this is your campground. The campground wasn't crowded - not sure why they had all the campers next to and across from each other. Spread 'em out! We camped at Shipshewana Campground North Park in a Travel Trailer.

There's lots to do around Shipshewana but the campground is several miles north of the action. You'll need to drive or plan on a pretty good bike ride.

Small (less than 50 RV sites) but very clean and well-maintained park. Our site was a level gravel pull-through with electric and water. There was highway noise if that sort of thing bothers you. Park Wi-Fi signal was good. We camped at Shipshewana Campground North Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Campground is located just north of all the shops and restaurants in Shipshewana. Look for the custard shop on the corner. We were here to check out the RV surplus stores in the area. The office recommended the Howe Restaurant in Howe just a few miles away. It is a clean American-style family restaurant. We received 10% off our bill with our campground windshield tag.

This is a very pleasant park. Probably the biggest downside is that it is located at an intersection with a lot of noise from traffic stopping and starting even though the sites are back from the road. WiFi was very good. TV reception was marginal. Trees give some shade and privacy. It is about 3 miles to Shipshewana; away from the traffic in town. There were some shower maintenance (drainage) and cleanliness issues. The adjacent frozen custard stand is an everyday temptation. We will definitely return to this campground when we are in the area. We camped at Shipshewana Campground North Park in a Travel Trailer.

Check out the Scherger's Kettle Jams in Shipshewana. It's near the Bread Box Bakery that also carries the jams and jellies.

Located at the corner of SR 5 and SR 120, with easy access from I-80/90 and roughly 4 miles north of Shipshewana, this park is a good place to stay while exploring the area. The Flea Market on Tuesdays and Wednesdays attracts a lot of visitors, creating gridlock on the town's roads, so we were glad we hadn't opted for the south campground. There are nice shaded sites, but the electrical post is shared, which can be awkward if both RVs need 30 amp plug ins. The host kindly lent us a 50 to 30 amp adapter so we could safely hook up. There is quite a lot of traffic noise, day and night, from the intersection, as this is heavily traveled by trucks going down to Elkhart. We camped at Shipshewana Campground North Park in a Travel Trailer.

The frozen custard/ice cream stand on the property is positively addictive! The Das Dutchman Essenhaus restaurant in nearby Middlebury has the best Amish food and bakery in the area. The German Chocolate pie is to die for.

Nice campground with lots of pine trees. (several that need trimming!). This is a good place to stay when visiting Shipshewana. We have stayed here before and will stay here again. Sprint cell service is iffy, ATT ok. Free wi-fi is super (but there were very few campers here this early in the season). Our site was a little short--couldn't get both the 30' 5th wheel and the truck on gravel without sticking out in the street. We camped at Shipshewana Campground North Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Good campground to stay at. Trees make your site seem private. Lots are spacious and offer some shade. Site surface is gravel and features a fire ring and picnic table. You share the post with another site, so first come gets the 50 amp. Management was very friendly. We camped at Shipshewana Campground North Park in a Motorhome.

First of all, there are 2 Shipshewana Campgrounds in Shipshewana. North is the smaller but in this reviewers opinion the better. The other puts campers right on top of each other, and has much less shade. North is 3 miles north of town. Shady. Bathrooms were spotless. Ice cream store on premises. This is a great Amish community with buggies everywhere! We had a great visit, as our camper is a Jayco, so we were able to take a factory tour while we were here, also. Great services. Artsy town. We camped at Shipshewana Campground North Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Very close to town for you walkers. Park is clean and and simple to get settled. The bathrooms are clean along with the showers, but are in need to modernize. Campfires are not allowed, but in one place there is a communal campfire. Friendly staff. Monday nites are usually full because of the Flea Market on Tuesday so call ahead. We have been staying here for 8 years and nothing has changed in that time. No activities for the kids big and small. No pool but that is something we don't use anyway so we can do without.

Tuesdays are for the Flea Market: many vendors from junk to great stuff, it runs the whole gamut. If you don't like walking AND you don't have a scooter they rent them. Be there early. If you have a scooter you ride down to the Market its about 500/600 feet north of CG.

Stayed here for 5 nights, nice clean grounds with level gravel back ins and pull thru and grass around sites. Little road noise from intersection of 5 and 120 highways, didn't bother us. Campers were mainly 50+ that stayed here. Not every site had a fire ring, have to ask for one in office or get one from another site not being used. Not much for children to do. Antenna received all air broadcast stations. We camped at Shipshewana Campground North Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Enjoyed the area, an Amish community. Loved the drive to towns around Shipshewana and seeing the buggies and Amish farms. The food was excellent. Yoders hardware had everything imaginable. Tues and Wed. they have huge Auction in the barn that was crazy, full of primitives. Flea market was just ok, too much commercial products, not crafts. Also went to Elkhart and visited RV Museum. Very nice displays of the way people used to camp, full of history.
