Located on the banks of the St. Joseph River, there is tons to do, see, and, experience when you visit.

The Great Outdoors

Potato Creek State Park offers an escape into the Indiana outdoors while still allowing you to remain near the conveniences of a large city. In North Liberty about 12 miles southwest of South Bend, the park has something to offer all nature lovers. Do a little boating or fishing on the 327-acre Worster Lake. Explore several miles of hiking trails or let the little ones enjoy the playground. If you find that you can’t see all Potato Creek State Park has to offer in one day, bring your RV rental from South Bend and stay the night at the park’s campground. With 287 sites with electrical service, you’re bound to find a spot to suit your needs.

South Bend River Lights is an awesome way to experience the outdoors in the heart of Downtown South Bend. A public art installation that transforms the St. Joseph River into living art, there are two interactive light sculptures on either side of the river. These energy-efficient LEDs are the only display of its kind in the entire world and are thematically colored for holidays and special events, so be sure to check them out when you’re in town.

Battell Park in Mishawaka stretches across 11 acres and features several lighted tennis courts, playground equipment, and a terraced rock garden. Enjoy a picnic in one of the gazebos or let the kids cool off during the summer at the splash pad. Battell Park is also part of the Riverwalk system. This system allows visitors to easily access several parts of town and parks located on the St. Joseph River.

RV Parks

Like other urban areas, when you book an RV rental in South Bend, Indiana, you’ll find that there are few, if any, RV parks within the city limits. However, there are several in the surrounding areas that can accommodate your camping needs. One option in Granger is the South Bend / Elkhart KOA. This retro-themed campground seeks to keep the past alive with its collection of vintage soda pops, retro-styled ice cream shop, old-fashioned customer service, and classic candy and tin toys. It’s also within walking distance (less than a mile) to several grocery stores, restaurants, banks, and other services and shops. If you prefer to stay in the campground, you’ll have access to private showers, restrooms, a laundromat, basketball courts, ping pong tables, nature trails, a shaded playground, banana bike rentals, horseshoe pits, and many other amenities. The campsites themselves are spacious and shaded and offer full hookups, Wi-Fi, cable TV, and two dog runs.

Another possibility just 20 minutes' drive outside of South Bend is Maple Ridge Campground in Lakeville. Choose from full or partial hookup RV sites, each of which has a picnic table and campfire pit. You can also opt for a pull-through site if necessary. While camping at Maple Ridge Campground, you’ll have access to a seasonal swimming pool, disc golf, gaga ball court, basketball and pickleball courts, playgrounds, multi-purpose trails, and volleyball areas.
