TOO tight for trailer. We love KOA's but not this place. We told Charles who was directing us site tight. We stopped 2'XS stated it was too tight to turn. He kept waving his arm shouting it was clear. Result trailer & truck hit. George yelled at us. WE attempted to explain to owner Tom, George told us it was clear. We paid for damages but the Koa should have paid. Owner TOM shared we should SUE!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are very sorry it happened to you unfortunately. KOA cannot be responsible for any action a driver of a vehicle is doing or not doing. This is solely a drivers responsibility. And due to a medical condition Charles is not able to shout. He was pointing you to the site reserved for you.

Absolutely wonderful. Patricia, Thomas and Mike were exceptional hosts. The campground was exceptionally clean. We were made to feel very much at home. If we return to the Grainger area (which is likely) we will absolutely stay at South Bend/Elkhart North. We highly recommend it!!!

Beautiful campground! Staff was friendly, only downside was there was no bedding or towels in the Cabin we stayed in, so we had to go and purchase sheet, pillows, blankets and towels. We have stayed at other KOA's in cabins where linens were provided and did not see anywhere on the reservation that said you needed to bring your own.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We're sorry for your issues. It is mentioned in the confirmation as well as on the webpage that you have to bring your own linens. We do rent sleeping bags with pillows.

Very nice Halloween display! The KOA is getting ready to expand, well off the highway and quiet at night. Just 2 days from closing for winter the store was understandably pretty much empty.

Everyone was incredibly kind and the service was phenomenal (free cookies when you arrive!!) the cabin we stayed in was beautiful and comfortable and I had an amazing experience overall.

Our South Bend KOA stay was perfect! The cabin was such an cool unit, and it was immaculately maintained! The customer service at the main office was so surprisingly great from a "campground". I felt like I was staying at a 5 star resort from the way we were treated! I can't give enough praises about these guys!

This KOA is well maintained and the staff is outstanding. For kids, there is so many activities and hanging out around the campfire relaxing was awesome. Thanks for a great visit!

Called in for late arrival and was told we could pay in the morning, only to be scolded like children after a knock on the RV door in the morning -referring as being like getting gas and not paying. Clocks were off from time zone change and charged two hour late checkout. I can understand at busy season but not with 3 other campers in the park.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I'm sorry, but none of our agents would say this. You have to fill out at least the night registration and give a form of payment at check in. Also late check out isn't determined on how many campers are left in the park. If possible you can stay over time, but you have to pay for the site you're in

campground is misrepresented on their website, our site had a large hole right at our doorstep. Owners are very ridged in their rules, changing them as they go. On the plus side very clean and well maintained. Kids activities were great

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We don't change rules as we go. They are printed on the back of the sitemap. We try to enforce our rules as friendly and caring as possible.

We had an awesome time and can't wait till next year.

Had a great time. Halloween weekend was made fun with trick or treating and hayrides. Community dinner with donations/proceeds going to charity was a great touch!

Awesome!

Wonderful campground. Staff is great, amenities nice....love the smell of the pines!

"Boo in the park" was well done, everyone was helpful, sites were just little tight, BUT! About the Waiver and release agreement on the back of the car pass and the Park Rules in the brochure, did I make a wrong turn and end up in a country under Sharia law. I always get nervous when I run into rules and disclaimers that cover everything. It makes me wonder what is wrong here. Why are they getting

We had a great time. It was our first time out and the staff was super hrlpful!
Oct 26, 2015
Owners and employees were rude and very unorganized. This was our 3rd year for staying the Halloween weekend and it will be our last. Additional fees were required upon check in for deposit that were not previously stated.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are sorry but there is no additional fees required to stay in the cabins. What you are talking about is the refundable security deposit of $100 charged at check-in, which is mentioned clearly on the email confirmations you've got and is also on our webpage.

Wonderful host and staff, they made us feel very welcome! Fun Halloween activities for the entire family. Clean park.

Great campground for Notre Dame fans, so close to the campus! Excellent RV park, easy sites to park in and hospitable staff.
Oct 20, 2015
Very clean, small sites. Dryers take too much money to dry. Thought the camping rates were a bit high.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The fluffier and lighter the dryers are getting loaded, the faster they dry. Also we recommend reserving 50Amp sites considering the length of your RV.

Good, clean facility. The management seemed a bit paranoid about security. Apparently they have had security issues in the past and they are reacting. I was not there to live at the campground so it met my needs but the "feel" of the experience was odd.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have our fine tuned football weekend safety schedule and plan, which we follow since more than 10 years very successfully. Has nothing to do with paranoia in my opinion, it's safety and wellbeing first for all our customers, our staff and ourselves. Thank you.

I was pleased overall and would return. The staff was friendly and accommodating, however, I was disappointed when I asked about on site BBQ grill, I felt I had been misinformed.
Oct 15, 2015
Enjoyed our stay. Located close to our son and to many good restaurants.
Oct 15, 2015
Thomas & Patricia are great host. We really appreciate the cleanlyness of their kampground. Their showers are always clean, warm and roomy. It is always nice to see Lenny. This KOA is must stay when we are traveling out to the west and returning home to the east.
Oct 14, 2015
Very well run. This was our fourth time staying there.

Very easy to find and get to and from Notre Dame stadium!
