We were excited to finally return home-ish to some of our friends. We've met Jeff & Lisa in Shipshewana a lot, and this year was no different. We played games, went shopping, and even celebrated Lisa's upcoming birthday! The chicken at the Blue Gate Restaurant is fabulous!
We happened to be there on the opening day of the flea marking in town, and I think everyone in the area was there too! We enjoyed walking around shopping, but at the end of the day, I somehow logged over 7300 steps! Wow! There are a lot of stores and restaurants to choose from, so if you're ever in the area, we would highly recommmend a visit here.. :-)
Stay details: Shipshewana South Campground; Shipshewana, IN.
Note: This was a pretty nice campground, nestled within the country amish ambiance. There was a cow field in the back, and horse fields on either side, so there was pletny of enjoyment watching the animals on our daily walks. There was no smell wheile we were there, so we didn't see it as an issue. They have few ammenities, but there is a dump station, with a seperate electric only space in the rear. This is where we stayed. We enjoyed the more solitute and privacy in the back, only after we moved sites because someone else was parked on our friends' spot. The shower houses they have are very clean and updated. The office personnel were extremely polite and very accomodating, and the neighboring horses are awesome to watch.
We stayed at site 22 (30a electric only), and it was a huge grass spot next to the rear field. We have a 35' rig, and had a LOT of space to spare.
