Big Foot Beach State Park, Lake Geneva, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

This campground is fairly quiet, located near Lake Geneva, making it a great place to stay if you plan on checking out the local shops and restaurants. The "beach" part of the park is a good distance from the camp sites, about 1 1/2 miles. The beach is also very small, and about 10 people can make it feel very crowded. The campsites themselves are nice, but in need of a little TLC. Our fire pit looked like it had seen its best days about 20 years ago and I am not sure I would want to actually cook anything on the grate. Other than that the trees were cleared back from the spots and most of the sites weren't too bad for leveling. There are some sites where leveling could be a challenge. We didn't have any trouble in our 24' motorhome, but larger trailers and motorhomes might have some trouble getting into a few of the sites as the roads are narrow and some of the sites are also fairly narrow. Only about half of the sites have electrical hook ups.The only water I saw was at the bathrooms or near the camp host sites. The center of the campground has a nice shower house that is clean and well kept. The water is on a timer so you have to keep pressing the button, but it is free to use, so no big deal there. We camped at Big Foot Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Definitely take a drive or bike ride into Lake Geneva. Boat tours of the lake, boat rentals, shops, and dining are available to put together a nice weekend of activities. There is a larger beach in the town as well. During the Fall, go to Harvest Time Orchard in Twin Lakes, WI (about 10 miles away) for great cider and fresh made donuts.

Spruce Creek Park, Bellevue, Iowa

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $21.00
Overall Rating:

This county park is a great place to camp right on the shores of the Mississippi River. Part of the park is reservable in advance and the other is first come-first serve. This park itself does not have a campstore or too many amenities, but the nearby town of Bellevue has stores and anything else that might be needed. The restrooms were clean but in rough shape. After Labor Day they were closing for renovation so next year they should be real nice. Our site wasn't quite long enough for the RV and tow vehicle, but most of the other ones have quite a bit of space. Overflow parking was close by and convenient. If you have your own boat, there is a boat launch and small marina attached to the park as well. A very nice park and I will definitely stay here again. We camped at Spruce Creek Park in a Motorhome.

About 45 minutes away is Monticello Canoe Rental - great for a day floating on the Maquoketa River. Bellevue State Park is a nice stop as well.

Wyalusing State Park, Bagley, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

Price above is the "base" price for reserving the site. Wisconsin charges extra for the use of their state parks. As out of state, the choice was an extra $11/night for the RV, or to buy an annual park pass for $38. With that said, the price for this park is absolutely worth it. I stayed in the Wisconsin Ridge campground portion, which offers access to some amazing views, right from the camper. The ridge is above the Wisconsin River where it meets the Mississippi River and overlooks the town of Prairie Du Chien (don't expect dark skies here, there is a well-lit regional airport down there). The campsites that are right on the ridge mostly don't have any hookups, but right across from those are some electric sites that still give a great view. The campground also has miles of well-marked trails. Larger rigs and trailers may have some trouble getting into some of the sites. A few of them are angled strangely and, even with my small RV, I had to perform a few maneuvers to get it angled in properly. Once settled though, it was a great park. There is a concession stand up on the Ridge, and a small campstore right before the park entrance that offers all the basic supplies and cheap firewood as well. We camped at Wyalusing State Park in a Motorhome.

Shabbona Lake State Park, Shabbona, Illinois

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

Excellent State Park only about an hour and a half from the Western suburbs of Chicago. Some of the sites looked like they could be difficult for longer motorhomes or trailers to get into, but most of them should be manageable. This park is quiet during the week, but fills up on the weekend. Nearby campstore has firewood and other supplies available. There is a nice boat launch at the campground and at the main park building there are available boat rentals. For activities there are about 8 miles of well manicured trails for hiking or running with a mix of shaded forest and tall-grass prairie. Fishing is, of course, the main draw of the lake, but I did not see any fish-cleaning stations at the campground, but I did not look too hard. There is a central shower house with running water which was very clean. In the camping loops are pit-style toilets, but even those were clean and kept relatively clear of bugs. The camp and park staff are extremely friendly. We camped at Shabbona Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

Rock Cut State Park, Loves Park, Illinois

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $23.00
Overall Rating:

This is a nice state park close to the Illinois/Wisconsin border with easy access from I-90. The camping loop that we stayed in was pretty open, with a lot of spaces really close together (great for groups). The other loops we walked through, Staghorn and White Oak seemed to have some sites with a lot more seclusion if that is what you are looking for in a campsite. The park is a nice size with plenty of forested hiking and biking trails. There is also a lake in the center of the park with boat ramps. Lots of kayakers and fishers here so I would guess the fishing is decent, but I didn't get a chance during my stay. The park is close to I-90 so at night when it quiets down there is some traffic noise if the wind is right, but at the campground it was not bad at all. Also a bit of light pollution in the area from nearby Rockford and Loves Park, but still some nice stargazing is possible. The bathrooms were cleaned daily. The camping loops also offer a shower house which was in good shape. Spread out around the campground are also the standard Illinois State Park pit restrooms, not the greatest but there when you need them. We camped at Rock Cut State Park in a Motorhome.

Wagon Trail Campground, Ellison Bay, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $58.00
Overall Rating:

Stayed here at the Wagon Trail Campground in Door County, Wisconsin and the service and staff are excellent. The campsites were pretty level and the restrooms and showers have been recently remodeled and are very clean. From the campground there are some nice trails to the nearby Mink River and to a fairly quiet beach are on the shores of Lake Michigan. The water up here is much clearer than you will see in the lake down by Chicago. If you have a tow vehicle, you could easily spend a week traveling around the nearby areas and exploring this part of Wisconsin. Lot's of scenic drives and fun places to stop. I hope to make Wagon Trail Campground part of an annual tradition. We camped at Wagon Trail Campground in a Motorhome.

Mammoth Cave National Park - Mammoth Cave Campground, Mammoth Cave National Park, Kentucky

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

A lot of sites will probably fit Class C RV's but look tight if you have a Class A. There are a couple of sites that have electric but it is dry camping for the most part. Campstore is close with pay showers. Bathrooms are in every loop and cleaned regularly. The bathrooms are also air conditioned which is a nice bonus. Mammoth Cave Visitor Center is maybe 1/2 mile away and there is also access to the trails around the forest from the campground. Lots to explore and see. We had a pull through site which fit our 24' RV fine. If we had a tow vehicle that probably would have fit as well. We camped at Mammoth Cave National Park - Mammoth Cave Campground in a Motorhome.

North Sandusky Campground COE, Sesser, Illinois

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $16.00
Overall Rating:

Nice, quiet park with plenty of room to explore. There is a long bike trail, over 20 miles. It is about 1 mile to South Sandusky Campground along the trail which also features a small beach area. Has clean bathrooms with flush toilets rather than the standard pit type in Illinois parks. There are also showers which are kept clean. Our loop (White Oak) had 4 showers. I did not have a tow vehicle, but the driveway was long enough for a long RV and probably one or two more vehicles. We camped at North Sandusky Campground COE in a Motorhome.

Clinton Lake State Recreation Area, Dewitt, Illinois

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

This park is a bit off the beaten path but was worth the drive. There are standard "pit" type bathrooms close to the campsites that are the standard for Illinois, but the entrance to the loops had showers and standard toilets that were kept clean. Host was friendly and the place was quiet at night. Not a lot of foliage this early in the season, but our site had a nice view of the lake from the back of the campsite. Definitely going to stay here again. We camped at Clinton Lake State Recreation Area in a Motorhome.
