Good Campgrounds near Nappanee

Will have two days of warranty work in June. I am assuming I can check in to the campground the day before and leave the day after. But I have several days to kill before and after. Are there some nice places to stay close by, if we want to. Either near Nappanee or near Charlotte MI? We are having Maintenance done there the following week.

Hi hamgva,

No nice CGs near Nappanee. 4H Fair Grounds in Elkhart at Elkhart County 4-H Fairgrounds In Shipshewana there is Shipshewana North or south CGs. They are at Home and https://shipshewanatradingplace.com/rv/

There are no CGs near Charlotte. Charlotte is in the middle of nowhere. Spartan has quite a few spaces (electric only) and directions on how to get to a dump and water.

Thanks Gary. I wonder if the independent service center by the campground you mentioned is good as well for fiberglass and the like. I know Newmar is best for it own stuff, but their quote for a minor fiberglass repair seemed awfully high. They want to rip out and replace panels when the damage (yeah, I did it) is not much more than a small 2 inch gouge in the fiberglass. Ah well, it's only money and I can't take it with me.

Hi hamgva,
Please understand Newmar is the manufacturer. This means the repair will be done to restore the coach to new (new as possible). Independent shops will correct the problem, but most likely, not restore the coach to "like new".

The CG mentioned by ewlee is a field with hookups. To each his own, it is a CG I do not recommend. It is called Pla-Mor. Buy an extra water filter if you stay there.

Anyone ever stay at Camp Turkeyville RV resort? It appears to be about 18 miles south of Charlotte MI. Might be our in-between stop over.
