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... More

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.

Not bad for an overnight stay. This is a gated park, so if you want to get in (even to check in) they need to buzz you in - if you intend to leave and come back, you will be issued a gate pass that must be returned when you check out. We stayed in a "buddy site" where every... More

We could not have been more impressed with this campground. The sites are roomy, we had a fire pit ring. We were fortunate enough to have a lot with trees. A well kept private campground. It does not have all the activities a KOA or Jellystone have but it is still very nice. The bathhouse was very clean which is... More

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
