We were here a few years ago and there has been some good improvements in the staff. Our site was very steep. We got to the end of our jacks to be able to level. The sewer was on the wrong side of the site. However, the campground was nice and worth the stop. The sites along the river flooded while we were here. Road noise from the highway is there, but OK.

This campground is very close to the highway so it is noisy when you are outside of the RV. Tenters will not like this campground if they want quiet. It is 3 minutes to the "strip" in Wisconsin Dells, so a great place to be for the nights. Mosquitoes are the size of small eagles and the population is very thick day and night. The facilities and the park are well kept. There is a 8 degree grade hill to get from the lower level up to the RV park. Our large fifth wheel was a challenge to get in but it was OK. If you are comfortable with your rig you can get it in, but probably only can fit in a site or two. Cell coverage for Sprint and AT&T was non-existent.

A nice park, good for the kids. They have water slides and other fun things on their schedule throughout the day. The park was well maintained for a late spring, it was ready to go so early in May. The restrooms were clean even though it had been raining, that is difficult. The check in staff were rude again, just shoved the stuff at me in a bag and told me to come back if there was any questions...she was trying to get me away from her counter. No assistance in routing through the park, etc.

Disclaimer: The campground is being remodeled as part of a new casino/hotel/resort/campground complex being built right next to the old campground. Since this campground is part of that project we had to give them a lot of slack. There is zero complaints about the view from our bay side campsite. The electrical is a bit odd in that there is only 50 and 15 amp at the newly remodeled sites, no 30 amp. Once they get done with construction, I suspect this will be an excellent campground for many years to come, right now it is too early to tell for the 2011 season.

This excellent campground is heavily wooded and will be a challenge for the novice driver of any big rigs. You will have to be sure to declare big ready to get those specific sites, as the area we were in tested the maximum length of our landing jacks to remain level! There are sites right on the lake and then there are sites you get to peak at it if you hold your head just right. All sites are in easy walk distance of the view. Stay on the East side of the park, if you are on the west loops you are just a few trees away from the busy highway. This is a state park, so you need to have a park sticker for an additional $29 non-resident. We had not considered that in the price of the night and should have in our campground comparisons.

This is an excellent park that is owned by two great owners that are hands on. The park is very quiet and has great resources for the kids including a small playground and a good swimming that is always busy. Saturday evening there is an ice cream social to bring out the great people that season here and the transients like us. This is a great campground I look forward to visiting each year we come to the area for the U.P. Hogwild BBQ contest.

This is a great RV park for the adults, there is playground equipment but not much here to keep the kids entertained for a weekend. The comfort station is a single stall attached to the recreation/laundry room. The assumption is that you are a big rig and you will be using the sewer hook that is at each site. In our case the sewer hook up was at the mid-line between our site and the one behind us, we did not have enough hose to make it to connection. All in all this is a nice place, it is a converted gravel pit and the "lakes" are great. No work over in the active gravel pit this weekend, but I bet it would be an issue as mentioned earlier for those on that end of the park during the week. This park is about 10 miles from Duluth and should be listed in Saginaw, not Duluth. Easy access to and from highway 53 for day trips.

This is an awesome gem for the county. What used to be a dump and was neglected has been taken over by the local township. They have done a great job at renovating the park and starting to modernize it. They have added water to most sites, sewer to some and over hauled the electrical system. New restrooms and showers, however not well maintained during the weekend. The sites are tight and the roads are tight, some pruning of trees and strategic culling would make the campground more accessible. We were here in a 30' 5th wheel, it was scary driving through but possible.

This campground is a very family friendly park with oodles for the kids to do. The mini-golf course got a well needed painting for this year, it had been a while. The restrooms are usually clean, but are still in need of a refresh. The park is plugging along, not seeing lots of improvements from year to year. It is still one of the best commercial parks in the area, no bar or "bad people" for your kids to stay away from...just plain old wholesome fun. Larger campers will have problems because of the trees and very narrow roads.

The only problem with this campground is the noise from I-35. The campground is a mature campground, since it was originally a KOA in the 1960's. The new owners are doing great things with the remodeling: awesome restrooms like being at home with slate and tile, the pools (regular and a kiddie wading), and the new office lodge with a place to relax, a small grocery, and a game area. Many of the sites are small by today's standards, but there were big rigs in them. If you are looking for some nice shade and a nice looking campground, this is the place to come.

I was very disappointed with this RV Park. This was our first experience with an "elitist" park that had certain criteria for what RVs were allowed and what you could not wear, etc (uniform, painter's outfits, etc). There was an annoying number of "No Pets" signs everywhere in the park, and there was still dog poo in our site. The management was not there at check in, but instructions to our site were available due to our reservations. In the morning I went to pay and had to wait for 20 minutes while I stared at the "be right back" sign on the office door. The WI-FI stinks, and there were no instructions given. We came in with reservations and were placed in the only site without grass and just mud, why? Were the other 70 sites not available? There are random picnic table sites; our site was not a blessed site. The site was not level, we had to figure out how to use double our blocks to get the RV up on one side. Over all, a very disappointing campground. It does have promise with the right management.

This was one of the worst campsites we have had. It started with the check-in process, where the owner checked us in but really only talked to the guy in the lawn chair shooting the breeze and not me. It continued with having to pull out on the street and coming back in to jump the curb to get back into the campground and into our "pull-thru" site. The owner walked us out there, and she told us that our neighbors had been talked with and that would be running our utilities under their camper as our site did not have any. The site was not level, even though it had gravel that could be leveled out. The seasonal campers are rude and don't respect your space, while they parked their boat in and flooded our site with water while cleaning and blocked us in with their mini-van so we could not leave. This campground does not have a view of Lake Pepin from all parts, just one small corner of seasonals. Only come to this campground if you are coming with extra vehicles and boats, because there are no rules on how to park them and manage them on site so you will be happy.

This is an excellent campground, it would be wonderful for a family or for just a couple. There are plenty of things to do around the campground, mini-golf, arcade, indoor swimming pole, outdoor natural swimming hole, free private fishing and boating. Each weekend there is a theme and activities that are associated with the theme. The restrooms were not maintained well through the rainy weekend, they did not step up the maintenance of keeping the sand and moisture under control. The new bathhouses are nice, the old are maintained but they were built under a different standard. We got a call about a week before our stay from the office staff, they wanted to upgrade our site and move us to accommodate a family reunion that was forming around out site. That was really nice of them to do the family and for us, I appreciated that attention to detail and trying to make everyone happy. The one complaint I have is the signage from the North and West is bad, we mentioned it to the office and they seemed to not care and mentioned no one ever comes from the North! Hmmm, we did?

This campground is very family friendly: there is a jumpy pillow, mini-golf, shuffle board, a small in-ground pool, tri-cycle rentals (middle school age toys) and a game room. There is also canoe rentals and tubing, where they will take you to and pick you up from the nearby Red Cedar river. New this year is free Wi-Fi, which seems to cover pretty good in the center part of the park where we stayed twice now this year. The center section roads are well paved, perfect for roller blading. The restrooms and shower house are in the center section, porta pots on the extended areas, but the shower house is very basic. More than half of the campground are seasonals; however, transient campers are very welcome. You will find large units in here, but it is really tight getting around the park and into your site. The rates on the river are $30 a night, but they also get you with $2 AC charge per night (refundable if you don't use it) and any play things that they charge the kids for in the park.

This campground was a great stop along I-90. It was easy to maneuver through and get into your spot with a big-rig. The Wi-Fi was terrible and was not working most of the time. The owners were very helpful with directing you to local businesses. Beware at check-in that they don't just start adding extra charges on the bill, assuming you want certain things.
