This is the first time we have been able to get in this park in years. This is definitely a destination park that is full most of the vacation season. We had a gravel, pull in, FHU site on the road side of the park away from the river. The cable TV had 70+ channels, but many were a bit fuzzy. Our site, as many are, was roof satellite friendly. This is a large park with interior roads and sites of gravel. Most sites are pull through, but there are also dozens of pull in and back in sites. There are plenty of recreational facilities: a small beach area on the river, playground, volleyball, clubhouse, game room, etc. This oldie would prefer a pool to too cool river water. The WIFI was very unreliable. When I could get on, it would only take me so far into my surfing (for example, I'd get to the home page on this site but could go not further) and then frop after just a few minutes. The laundry was about a dozen machines and the bath facilities were individual rooms with toilet, sink, and shower. I saw no sign of recycling. The staff dealt with were friendly and helpful.

We have probably stayed here 10+ times over the years. The convenience of nearby (within walking distance) stores and food make this our choice in the area. As usual, we have a gravel, level, pull through, FHU site. The 35 channel cable TV was fuzzy on the network channels. The WIFI worked surprisingly well for a weekend that was full Friday night and almost full Saturday night. The park has a great variety of sites. Most RV sites are FHU with cable, but there are also dozens of tent sites and cabins. This park has all the amenities: pool, playgrounds, b-ball court, 2 bath facilities, cheap laundry, ice cream social, pancake breakfast, etc. My low rating results from the price and the way the staffers let so many customers behave dangerously. This ranges from breaking the rules about kids (even infants) in the hot tubs to vehicles (cars, trucks, RVs, and motorcycles) speeding through the park (especially after dark). They do have recycling for plastic, aluminum, and paper.

This is our second year in as row staying here. I would advise ignoring the 4/16 review that tells you nothing about the park. The older woman who owned and ran the park sold it this past year and it is now managed by a couple who seem to be doing a good job of keeping the park up to previous standards. Since there is no cable TV, we had requested a satellite friendly site when making our reservation and were placed in a nice open site right across from the office. Since many sites are not satellite friendly, request one when making reservations. I would suggest reservations in season since this park filled up on the July weekday we were there. By 4 P.M. customers without reservations had to settle for W&E sites and several were turned away later that evening because the park was full. The 11 back in sites on the west side of the park are W&E only. The rest of the sites are fairly level, gravel, pull through, FHU sites. There is about 15' of grass/weeds between sites. The woman at the desk advised that the WIFI would probably not work well once the park got full. She was right - it worked OK for our minimal needs until about 8 P.M. The main building houses the office, bathrooms, showers, and a nice laundry. I think there were 2 or 3 of each machine. I saw no sign of any recycling.

If we have stayed here before it must have been last century. What surprised me the most was that there was no usual KOA "park map" given at check in - all we got was the receipt and a slip of paper with the internet password. This small (40 site) KOA has gravel sites with "grass between the sites. Half are pull through, FHU and half are W&E back ins along the Clark Fork River. The hookups for these sites share every other site so every other RV will have the W&E on the "wrong" side. The main building is old and houses the office, an expensive ($2.50 just the washer) 4 machine laundry, and half a dozen small individual bathrooms with sink, toilet, and shower. They were clean and, for a change) more than adequate for a park this size. There is no cable TV but most sites appear to be satellite friendly. The WIFI was OK until it got dark. It then slowed down and became useless. The owner was pleasant and helpful. I saw no sign of any recycling.

This is our second year in a row staying here. 25 sites are fairly level, gravel, side-by-side, full hookup sites with cable TV. There are only 10 channels. Some sites are satellite friendly but you should probably call for one ahead of arrival. There are also about 30 water & electric (half with cable and half without), plus 7 tent sites, and 6 cabins. There is a small pool and a playground. The bathrooms, showers, and laundry are in the main building along with a small TV lounge and store. The bathroom facilities were old, but clean. Typically, these facilities are inadequate for a park with non-sewer and tent sites. There is a small pool that was refreshing on a hot day and a playground for the kids. The staff and owners were friendly and helpful. The Internet connection was OK until late evening when the "bandwidth hogs" got on. We could not get back on after that. Recycling was just aluminum cans.

We have probably stayed here over a dozen times in the last 10 years. As usual we had one of the 20 shaded, level, gravel, pull-through full hookup sites in the front section of the park. The rest of the sites are behind the office are back-in sites and appear to be used mostly by extended stay customers. Most of these sites are also heavily shaded except for a row of 8 pull-through sites at the back of the park. These 8 sites are the only sites guaranteed to be satellite friendly. There are also 9 tents sites and 3 cabins. The park does have cable but it is limited to about 30 channels. Their Wi-Fi worked well for our minimal needs. The office has a store/gift shop, large laundry, and bathrooms with showers. There is a second bath facility back by the pull-through sites. There is a nice pool and a playground. The park has bins for recycling glass, plastic, and aluminum. The owners and staff are always very friendly and helpful.

There are a variety of sites: FHU, W&E, pull through, back in, about a dozen tents sites, and several cabins. There are two levels with the office (store, laundry, bathrooms, game room) 14 FHU sites and all the tent sites and cabins, playground, and a very nice pool on the lower level and the rest of the RV sites on the upper level. As usual we had a fairly level, gravel, pull through, FHU site on the upper tier. There are almost 60 cable TV channels and most sites are satellite friendly. The bathrooms are older and clean but inadequate for a park with so many non-sewer and tent sites. Except for a hour in the afternoon. I was unable to use their internet connection in my RV. I could get it in the office but not at the site in the evening. The owners/staff are always helpful and friendly. I saw no recycling.

This is a regular stop for us in western SD. There are probably closer to 80 RV sites in this park rather than the 56 shown above. All roads and site pads are gravel. All sites are pull through. Sites are decent width but longer rigs will have to park the toad vehicle awkwardly. There are about 30 WES without cable , 20+ sites are WE with cable, about 15 WES with cable, and half a dozen WE sites. There are also RV sites shown on their map with no utility designations plus a tenting area with a dozen sites. We were given a WES site without cable TV because we asked for a site that was satellite friendly. Most sites have small to medium trees, but even then maybe half of the sites are satellite friendly. Their handout shows about 35 cable TV channels. As usual, the internet worked OK for e-mail and surfing but slowed down after dark. There is a very small pool and a playground. The bathrooms and laundry (three of each machine -very cheap - $2.25 to do an entire load) are in the office building. They are old, but clean and functional. The owners and staff are very friendly and helpful. I saw no sign of recycling.

This KOA had become a regular stop for us in recent years. There are a variety of site types: FHU, W&E, tent, etc. There are also 5 cabins. Roads are gravel and there is some "grass" between sites. There a quite a few trees but many sites are satellite friendly. As usual, we had a gravel, level, pull through, FHU site with cable TV. There were about 25 channels but a few of the listed channels were wrong or did not register on my TV. The internet connection was pretty good until dark when is slowed a bit, but was still usable for our meagre e-mail and surfing needs. The main building has the office, store, cafe (breakfast and dinner), and bathrooms. The laundry and game room are in a separate building across from the office. The laundry is my only complaint: the washers are $2 per load (acceptable), but the dryers are a quarter for THREE minutes. That's the most expensive I've ever seen. There is a second set of bathrooms by the pool. Unlike many parks with tent and other non-sewer sites, this park has adequate bathroom facilities. They are old, but clean. In addition to a decent size pool, there is a playground and lots of open space. The owners and staff a friendly and helpful. The only recycling is aluminum cans.

This park has 4 rows of 8 or 9 gravel, pull sites. The first 4 or 5 in each row are FHU - the rest are W&E. As has been noted, you fill out check in forms at the laundry/bathhouse building and deposit an envelope with your cash or check in a box. There is a number to call if you need assistance. Our rate was PPA for a FHU, 30 Amp site. The utilities are spaced awkwardly at some sites. If possible, check these before selecting a site so you know you can reach the WES. The sites are quite long and the gravel pads are about 12' wide and to be appear fairly level. There is 10+' of grass/weeds separating the pads. There are small trees at most sites but the pads are situated so that the front of your RV is facing southwest. Thus, most rooftop satellites will work. There is no cable TV and I did not try the antenna. The internet connection worked well for us - even after sunset. The main amenity is a decent size pool. There is no recycling that I could see.

This has been our Mitchel stop for years. At Passport America rates, this has been an excellent value for a very good park. Imagine our surprise when we got here and found out that they no longer honor PPA. Their website (and a review here from last month) say that PPA is still honored. As usual, we had a fairly level, gravel, pull through, FHU site. We had cable and internet that was not reliable in the evening when everybody starts using bandwith eating features like skype and netflix. Thanks, selfish hogs. The laundry is good, but the bathrooms and showers are old and inadequate. There is no recycling. The park shares a small outdoor pool with the motel.

This casino RV park is completely different from when I stayed here 4 years ago. The RV park is just west of the casino and you enter through the casino parking lot. You have to go into the hotel to register. The park roads are asphalt. It is now a fairly new, open area with 4 rows with 6 pull through sites and one 6 site row of back ins. So there are now only 30 sites. All sites have large (15' x 60') cement pads with about 20' of grass between the cement pads. There is a small (10' x 10') cement pad with a round metal picnic table and 4 benches. Next to that pad is a 10' x 10' gravel area with a metal fire pit/grill in the middle. All sites are FHU with cable TV hookups. I cannot even begin to describe the cable TV situation. Depending on your TV equipment (its age, your box and cable, etc.), you may be able to get 20-60 channels. My scanning produced about 30 channels but only 20 of them had picture. Unfortunately, most of those were split screen or would pixilate every few minutes. Since all sites are satellite friendly, we just used our satellite. The bathrooms (2 small toilet, sink, shower) rooms in a 10' x 15' trailer in the southwest corner of the park. At best, they are efficient and practical. There were only about 10 RVs in the park the weeknight we were here, so the internet connect was OK. I am using it to write this about 7 P.M. so it may get bad if everybody hops on the internet when it gets dark. There are no recreational amenities in the park and I saw no recycling.

Once again, this has been a good overnight stop for us. We had a fairly level, weird (see my prior reviews) surface, pull through, FHU site. There is no cable TV but most sites (except for a handful of back in sites at the southern edge of the park) appear to be satellite friendly. The bathrooms, showers, and laundry are large and clean. The laundry machines were fairly new and I believe there were 8 of them. The washers are the new front loaders and cost $2. The dryers were 25 cents for 10 minutes. The internet worked quite well until it started to get dark. Even then, it just got slow. There is nothing recreational in the park. I saw no recycling. Some folks may be unhappy that they may have to carry their garbage more than 100 yards to the dumpster in the northeast corner of the park. The staff members I encountered were helpful and friendly.

We last stayed here in 2009 but did not return because they did not have satellite friendly sites. They added a section with 10 sites open to the sky at the highest tier of the park. We stayed in that section and had a gravel, fairly level pull through, FHU site with cable TV that had about 30 channels. As others have noted, the park is full of trees, a great variety of flowers, and many gardens. Unfortunately, I saw many sites that were not level (lots of RVs up on blocks). The bathrooms and showers in the main office building were old, but clean. There is an additional bathhouse, but only 2 of the bathrooms there were open. That may have been because the park was less than half full. Additionally, many of the RVs there appeared to be seasonal (they were unoccupied the night we were there). While there are about 50 FHU RV sites, there are also dozens of RV sites that are only W&E, tents sites, and cabins. As with most KOAs, there is a pool, a bounce pillow, a playground, and other recreational facilities for kids. We had only a few glitches while using their internet connection. It worked fine for our minimal (e-mail and surfing) but that may have been due to the park not being crowded. There are garbage cans throughout the park for recycling glass, aluminum, and plastic.

In the past 10 years, this park has become our preferred RV park in the Madison/Dells/Baraboo area because it meets our wants (pool, satellite friendly sites, usually reliable Internet, and lots of fast food within walking distance) better than other area parks. The majority of the sites are full-hookup, pull through, fairly level, decent size, on gravel pads. The main building contains the office, a typical KOA store, and older but clean bathrooms and laundry facilities. There is no cable TV, but most sites appear to be satellite friendly and there are numerous Madison stations available via antenna. In addition to the small pool, the is a playground and horseshoe pits. As usual, the staff we dealt with were friendly and helpful.
