Buck 'n Beam's, Cameron, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

Buck 'N' Beam's is located on a paved county road near town and with several resort lakes nearby. We arrived just after lunch and were met on the drive by Mr. Owner. He helped us back into a spot in the corner, bordered by lush pine growth. We had 50 amp & water, no sewer hookup. The wide gravel driveways were slightly rough, but being graded into shape by Mrs. Owner. A couple with 2 small children were traveling with us and they were given a secluded tent spot near us. The campground made a spot just for them, including a fire ring and picnic table that had never been there before. Our spot was level side-to-side and front-to-back and had grass on both sides, with ample room for our slides. Our picnic table was shaded by the pine trees and very bug-free. Although the little kids followed chickens (pets?) around through the trees for hours on end. The campground has a tavern that serves delicious pizza and short orders. I was worried about the noise, but they were no more noisy than any other restaurant would have been. A band played country music on Friday night, with no admission charge. Buck & Beamer are the names of the dogs that the camp is named after, and a couple of friendly Bassets greeted us noisily, whenever we approached the office. The restrooms were spotless all the time we stayed, 15 days. The showers cost about $3.00, but only take four quarters at a time, so we had to exit the shower stall to refill the coin machine about three times to finish washing and rinsing. The owners and everyone else there were very helpful and friendly, making us feel like we were with family within a couple of days. We would (no, make that WILL) stay there again. We camped at Buck 'n Beam's in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Cameron is a small town, within a resort area of lakes and rivers. Chetek is a short drive away, with more variety and more things to do. There are good places to eat and shop. Just ask any of the friendly people in either town for directions and for their favorite places to go.

Buck 'n Beam's, Cameron, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed two weeks in our 35 foot motor home. The driveways are gravel. Most sites are nearly level. We stayed on site 7, next to large pine trees. Most sites are near trees, but not shaded. The sites are very wide, with grassy lawns.

The office doubles as a bar, with a very small camp store. They have a bag-toss tournament on Thursdays and one night, a small band played till 11:00 PM.

They have a small playground, away from the camp sites. This is near the county road, so parents should supervise little ones.

The owners are very friendly and accessible. One met us and called me by name as we pulled in the first day. This friendly, personal contact was the same with every employee.

The campground is dog-friendly, with two Bassett residents who wander over to say Hi, but don't get in the way.

The only downside is the lack of sewer hookups, but campers can use the dump station near the exit.

Overall, we really enjoyed our stay. We would stay again, and recommend it to you. We camped at Buck 'n Beam's in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Chetec has six lakes and a river, for fishing or boating. The Red Cedar River is five miles south of the campground, for fishing or tubing.

The Cameron House in Cameron, a mile away, has good food at family prices.

The Pokegama Restaurant has seafood and steaks. R-Bar has Chicken Wings in six or more flavors, on Wednesday nights.
