Enjoyed a couple of days in Elkhart. This is a little farther out of town but close to Grand Design where we went for a factory tour. Approach from the north as you cannnot make turn from the south. Motorhomes disconnect toad and go right around towards house to back-in beside Bus. Thank you for accommodating us!

A lovely area with a beautiful small town not far from it. Parking is easy and amenities are close by. I had a lovely time talking to the couples young son and watching him play with his radio controlled car. Be sure to visit Das Essenhaus while you’re there for some of their wonderful baked goods.

The host are very friendly and good communication. Thank you for letting us be your 1st guest in the new place. It is easy to find, the hwy can be busy so be careful pulling in and out. There's a nice breeze so no problem with 15amp. Parking is fairly level. Hope to see you again in the future.
