South Bend / Elkhart North KOA

We offer a bit of paradise! Our location combines the rustic feel of a wooded setting with the nice convenience of being within a short walking distance of several restaurants and many stores.

Stay at this peaceful family campground, nestled between the pulsing cities of South Bend and Elkhart, 7 miles from the University of Notre Dame and Elkhart, the “RV capital of the world”. There are many attractions nearby, like Studebaker and Hudson Museum, Shipshewana and Amish country, Chocolate factory, Notre Dame and “the RV capital”, RV manufacturers, RV surplus stores and the RV Hall of Fame.
Splash parks, casinos and an extraordinary zoo can be found around here. We are only a couple of hours away from Chicago, if the “big city bug” bites you. There's a train between South Bend Airport and downtown Chicago. Enjoy the beauty of Northern Indiana, with fishing places nearby, like the St.Joseph River, or take a stroll along the river walk in Mishawaka or Elkhart. Visit the beaches on Lake Michigan, Indiana Dunes State park or East Race channel for rafting and canoeing.

Well maintained, level full hookup RV sites are available, with 54 channel cable TV access and free WiFi. We feature two dog runs, so bring the pets! And don't miss Jenny, our lovely and cute donkey!

We offer spacious deluxe cabins and cozy, comfortable rustic cabins, and Louise, our beautiful classic trailer!
Private showers, very clean restrooms and a nice, modern laundry round up our much liked amenities.

Enjoy our bit of paradise!
