It's quiet country location is just a few minutes drive from restaurants, shopping, beach, and casino. We can't wait to return for a long weekend with our extended family; should...

We arrived at 9:30 pm on a sunday night, with no reservations (as I hadn't been able to get them on the phone that night). The owner let us in and showed us to our site. I would definitely stay here again. The sites were large and very clean, each had some grass, gravel pads. The bathrooms were very clean....

They've had to cut too many trees since my last visit here but Sadie, the dog was still present to welcome me. The washroom hand dryers have been upgraded but the swimming pool remains in-operational. There's a pass gate to maneuver on the way in, press three to be let in to register. The wild flowers on the bank at...

Cory, Jill and the staff were great! The campground was clean and everything was well maintained. It was really a top notch experience. There is a very nice playground and the pool is being resurfaced now (fall 2016). They have several cabins, with different levels of amenities. There was a problem with the one we rented, so Cory put us...

Sites were large and had cement patios with build-in fire pits. We were in the front section and did hear traffic noise, but it wasn't disturbing. The staff were friendly and helpful. Would return for another visit.

The cabins are bare bones, with rock hard mattresses along with hearing every sound outside. The owners and staff were very rude, assuming due their own personal preferences of culture. The bathrooms and showers are unkept and need repairs. We camp at least six times a year, by far the worst experience.

Very nice campground however the bathrooms are old and not handicapped friendly. It also would be nice if the pool stayed open until 10pm instead of 8pm. Second time here. Would come again. Centrally located near many activities and Indiana Dunes State Park.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Michigan City Campground, conveniently located 1.5 miles south of I-94 and 2.5 miles north of I-80/90, is a privately owned family campground. It is nestled on 40 acres, just 5 miles from Lake Michigan and 10 miles from Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore.The campground is 50 miles east of Chicago and close to the South Shore Commuter train station. So if Chicago is your destination come “home” to peace and quiet after a long day of sightseeing.The campground features 2 fishing ponds (catch and release), children’s playground, basketball court, sand volleyball, and a swimming pool. There are 130 full hook-up sites and 14 water and electric sites. If you prefer “roughing it” we also have primitive camping along with a group tenting area or you can rough it in style in one of our 8 cabins. We can accommodate the largest motor home or trailer on the road.The store/office area is well stocked with groceries, RV supplies, gifts and snacks! The laundry is located right next to the store, is open 24 hrs/day and has a change machine for the campers convenience. The laundry room features softened water, 4 washers and 6 dryers.The campground is open year round. We also have many monthly sites available with winter water, as well as seasonal and overnight spots. A great place for summer fun and family gatherings ... more   less
