River Bend RV Resort, Watertown, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $75.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed June 24 - June 26 in our 26' travel trailer. $158.26 incl. tax for 2 adults & 3 children aged 7, 17, & 17. We stayed on site #1; friends stayed on site #2. I was NOT a happy camper this visit. - No pun intended. THE BAD: Our site was covered & I mean covered in geese feces. Good thing we have dogs & I was able to use their pooper scooper....for a little over AN HOUR! I'd say every 10-12 inches there was a pile. Not even exaggerating! Once our friends arrived we collected quite a bit more for at least another 30-45 minutes each. I'd say together we gathered 8-10 pounds of feces. Again, not making this up. We mentioned something to the office & they said people were coming Saturday morning to clean up. The beach was covered - disgusting! Not even a "sorry for the trouble, can we get you some ice-cream?!" Since we were on site #1 we had seen the maintenance crew arrive Saturday morning. They did one section of the beach area, left, & didn't come back. There was still A LOT left! And they didn't come by our site to clean up, or any others for that matter, just the beach area. They are also using a strobe light system to scare the geese away, but all they did was sit behind our camper. I also think they are being fed because at one point they stayed away from the beach area, but we noticed almost all had their heads down to the ground. At this site we also had a lot of campers walking through our site. Unfortunately our one dog that we recently adopted got anxious each time someone walked through the site, so we had to take him inside. It would have been nice if people walked around. THE GOOD: The pool was spectacularly clean this time. It was also nice seeing the lifeguards watching for height restrictions on the younger water slide riders. Out of the local campgrounds in WI this is our #2 favorite campground, but our #3 overall. We will be back, I just hope the geese are more under control next time. We camped at River Bend RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Site #1 is next to the beach parking, so we were able to park one of the vehicles right next to the back of the travel trailer. We could have easily parked both there actually. Site #1 is the largest site that we've stayed on at Riverbend! It's huge & has an excellent view of the swimming pond. No shade on this site, so bring a large canopy. Wear shoes in the bath house by the pool. Very dirty floors. Wifi is great-$5/day or $10/3 days. Great band played Saturday night!

Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park, Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: May, 2016 - $62.00
Overall Rating:

Our entire family loved our stay (again)! 2 adults & 3 kids ages 16, 16, & 7. We stayed Memorial Day weekend 2016 in our 26' travel trailer. We paid $186 ($196.23 incl. tax) for a 3 night holiday weekend. We were on site 501! While there were no shade trees on this site, there was one big pine at the front of the site. I had a love-hate relationship with that tree. I loved that it gave privacy from the Tire Playground (where my 7 year old played the most), however I disliked it because I didn't have a decent view to monitor her because of the tree. I would however stay on this site again! We were mostly on site 500 with our friends anyways & we had an excellent view of the Tire Playground from there! We stayed in this area because in the past we prefer the lower pool & bath house because it is much newer. Of course the FREE & HOT showers are still one of the biggest advantages! Swimming pools are also free. This time we did not purchase the optional or additional amenities wristbands. The optional wristband was almost $15 per child the last time that we stayed. The special amenities punch card prices have since lowered from our last stay. There were so many fun activities planned throughout the weekend. Besides the Tire Playground, the young girls enjoys the Hey Hey Ride & Tye Dye craft the most! The teenagers enjoyed the dance on 2 of the nights. There was also Bingo, Bean Bag Cornhole tournaments, & so much more. A couple concerns this time was the fact that the lodge seemed understaffed. While I didn't experience it 1st hand, my husband didn't have nice things to say when he had to wait around while one employee was just standing around. With it being the 1st busy weekend of the season I would only presume everyone was trying to do the right thing. We were also able to pay a fee of $30 for them to empty our tanks while we were there. Our black tank sensor was not reading right, but we wanted to be on the safe side. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park in a Travel Trailer.

The sites near the lower pool & bath house are still my favorite! You'll be next to the Tire Playground & within short walking distance to the hot showers, very clean restroom & pool. The dog walk park & dump station are nearby as well. If you plan on purchasing the optional amenities wristband you'll want to stay in this area as well.

Smokey Hollow Campground, Lodi, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $55.00
Overall Rating:

This was our 1st stay here & it's our #2 favorite campground so far. This will probably quickly become our #1 as our favorite is over a 3 hour drive one way. We paid $165.00 incl. tax for a 3 night holiday weekend in a 26' travel trailer. 2 adults & 2 kids ages 16 & 7. We were first put on site P6 Friday night however. There was sand everywhere that caused stabilizing problems & we barely fit on the site. When I called earlier in the summer I was told it was the last site available for our weekend. I agreed to take it because we wanted to try this place out that badly. There were many pop-ups & tents so I don't think that area is meant to be for travel trailers. There was a nice playground right in the middle of the sites & a porta-potty was nearby too. We were up against a fence in the back, had to park the truck sideways in front, & couldn't use our fire ring because it was maybe 1 or 2 feet from our travel trailer. The site was very small (length & width). It gets amazing though - I wish I could write employee names here because we had an excellent experience switching sites. When I had seen an empty site I had asked an employee if there was a cancel & if we could move sites. She called the renter of that site, found out they had to cancel, & viola we got a new site! A++ We moved to site Y18 right behind the bath house, pavilion, & playground. We will book this site every time that we stay! The bathhouse that we were next to had 6-8 separate rooms that each included a locked door, toilet, sink, & (paid) shower. It felt like I was in my own bathroom at home. Very clean & spacious. There are so many fun things to do here! Over 50+ amenities - We loved the jumping pillow, the giant shopping cart, the treated lake w/ pretty blue water & inflatables, wagon rides, water wars, dunk tank, make your own donuts, & so much more. The entire family cannot wait until summer 2016! We camped at Smokey Hollow Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Downfall was the $25 wristband fee per child, however $5 is returned upon departure. Includes: Bikes/Pedal Carts, Spaceball, mini golf, & Jumping Pillow. The 7 year old LOVES jumping pillows otherwise we might have skipped it. It also included 3 free slushie drinks (there were other options too).

River Bend RV Resort, Watertown, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $75.00
Overall Rating:

This was our 2nd weekend (1st stay was Memorial Day weekend) in 2015 at Riverbend in our 26' travel trailer. We stayed 8/28 & 8/29 - 2 nights $158.26 incl. tax. We stayed on site #6; friends stayed on sites #5 & #4. Loved the little less than busy golf cart traffic that we have seen many times in the past while staying at sites on Pike Dr. (24-27 & 68-70) In the future we will always pick #6. It didn't have any shade, but it was very very spacious! We were a bit further away from the main bath house (which is why we stay on Pike Dr. every time), but the more quiet atmosphere was refreshing. The bath house on Bass drive is not a favorite of mine (many repairs are needed & usually dirty), so I always prefer the bath house next to the store. I did not use their shower facilities this time, but I do know those you do have to bring quarters for. Amenities include pool w/ waterslides, kiddie pool, swimming pond w/ inflatables, jumping pillow, Tiki bar, volleyball courts, bags tournaments, boat launch, mini golf, Friday night karaoke at Benderz Bar N Grill (campground restaurant), Saturday night band, & more. We will most always go back, it's just not my #1. We camped at River Bend RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park Camp-Resort Warrens Wisconsin, Warrens, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $65.00
Overall Rating:

This was our 1st stay here and it is our #1 campground so far. We stayed on the 11D site right across from bathhouse/restroom #3 in a 26' travel trailer (the free showers were in one single area that were for use by either men or women, with a locked door). Our site seemed larger than others nearby. The guests on 10D have been here 4-5 times and commented to us that we "got their favorite site." We've always had water and electric, but having sewer was new to us! We were very excited that we could avoid the dump station - how convenient! The $65 nightly rate does not include the per guest nightly rate. Overall we paid $205 including taxes for a 2 night weekend stay. 4 guests ages 4-64 was $32 for each night. Advantages: All of the amenities are free. No additional charge for mini golf or the train, etc. There are 3 swimming pools, 0.8" deep baby pool, hot tub, wave pool, a large basket that dumps water in another area, a lazy river, and so much more. Although we did not eat at the Pic-A-Nic Basket the menu options & prices were very competitive. Also, for $9-$24 campers can have cookies and milk or birthday cakes delivered to their site by Yogi Bear. Disadvantages: Many golf carts. We were hoping to get a ride to the skatepark using the train, but no boards were aloud. We just drove; which wasn't a big deal. A lot of traffic on the corner of Yogi Bear Lane & 4th St and we thought for sure we were going to witness an accident. Not many people slowed to check for oncoming traffic, pedestrians, golf carts, etc. No large inflatables in the swimming pond. No jumping pillow. There were so many things to do that we didn't get to everything, so we will definitely be back soon because they run a special where you stay 2 peak season weekends and get a fall weekend free. Looks like I better get to booking. This campground is a must see for families!! We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park Camp-Resort Warrens Wisconsin in a Travel Trailer.

Bring your bikes, skateboards, and scooters. Warrens neighborhood skatepark is right up the street (separate from Jellystone), and it's the best skatepark we've ever been to! Helmets are required, but can be rented.

Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park, Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $52.00
Overall Rating:

Our entire family loved our stay - two adults & 2 kids ages 16 & 6. We stayed during Yogi's birthday weekend bash (June 12-14) where my youngest enjoyed the piñata & cupcake. Among her favorites were the large tire playground & jumping pillow whereas the oldest loved the skatepark. Advantages: Hot showers are FREE. Loved the fried pickles at the Pic-a-Nic Basket snack bar. The campsites are spacious. Disadvantages: There is a "limit" on the amenities. An "optional amenities" (such as skatepark, jumping pillow, mini golf, & MORE) wristband purchase is required for each person that will use anything other than the pools. $12.66 per person per stay. There was also a "special fee amenities" punch card that was required in order to use 3 additional items (Zorb balls, Slip-N-Slide, Eliminator) not included with the "optional amenities" wristband. Overall Jellystone Fort Atkinson has been our favorite place to camp thus far. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Stay on a site near the lower pool. The bathhouse there is newer than the upper pool bathhouse! Leave your quarters at home because they are not required for a nice hot shower.

Crystal Lake Campground (formerly Crystal Lake RV Resort), Lodi, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: May, 2015 - $48.00
Overall Rating:

When I think of Crystal Lake Campground I get a bad taste in my mouth. This was our 1st stay here & we were on site 11 with 2 adults and 3 kids ages 16, 16, & 6. Our RV is 26 feet & we barely had enough room for our camper alone. The sites are small; the smallest we've ever seen. We had to park our truck sideways to fit. Advantages: No additional costs for amenities (pool, swimming pond with inflatables, hot tub, jumping pillow) for the kids. We've been to campgrounds that charge extra for these, so that was a huge bonus! Small skate park (the reason we stayed). Free showers. There was also a live band when we were there on Saturday night (no cover charge). Everything was conveniently located within short walking distance from our site. Disadvantages: It has a feel of a trailer park. The dump station is on a corner & difficult to maneuver around - very horrible placement. The women's bathhouse: 4 toilets & one had no working lock. The shower became cold after only a few minutes & was dirty. Bugs & spider webs were noticed, lights were out, holes in the wall, no cover over the pipe drains. I felt as if I was in a scary movie & that's saying it lightly. I decided to use our camper the rest of the weekend (It's new & we had a no use toilet/shower rule - that was a rule that needed to be broken anyway). The Sunday breakfast buffet was "just okay." All in all the price was really affordable & the amenities available were good as well, but the bathhouse & store/bar areas need some updating before we would return. Overall I wasn't that impressed. If you're staying for affordable rates this is your place. It's not " too bad," just not "great!" Ladies - just have an alternate way to use a shower &/or toilet. We camped at Crystal Lake Campground (formerly Crystal Lake RV Resort) in a Travel Trailer.

River Bend RV Resort, Watertown, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: May, 2015 - $75.00
Overall Rating:

This was our 1st weekend in our 2015 Springdale & we stayed Memorial Day weekend - 3 nights $237.39 incl. tax. We had gone to Riverbend last year once w/ friends in their travel trailer. We are new to this camping thing, so I don't have a lot to compare Riverbend to, however during our stay the pool was closed down because it was so dirty. Think rusty pipe water brown. I would hope next year the chemicals are started sooner. The main bathhouse was usually quite dirty. They may have only been cleaned once in the mornings around 6 a.m. The skatepark is a joke. The pillow was my 6 year olds favorite. Great water toys in the pond. Activity center for young ones such as $1 candy bar bingo & painting. Adults - bean bag toss & horse shoes. Definitely a lot to do! I would probably go back. We camped at River Bend RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.
