I would definitely stay at this park again. With everything that they had for activities it felt like a private campground instead of a county park. Fridays and Saturdays the campground was full when we were there. Sunday people pulled out in the afternoon and it quieted down. The beach and boat landing area were busy Saturday and Sunday. Great campground and we had a good time. There is also a golf course across the street. We had site 63 which was very large, but with all of the trees in the area and the narrow roads it looked like a challenge for those people with a 5th wheel or travel trailer. We camped at Shawano County Lake Park Campground in a Tent Trailer.
Shawano has a lot of stores and restaurants. We also went to Cecil which is a nearby city with restaurants and such. You can fish off the pier or bring a kayak/canoe and go cruising the lake.

First off the campground was clean and the layout was nice. I liked the fact that groups could rent a number of sites in a row and then camp in a circle or at least set up close together and not really have to stay on your specific site. Restrooms were clean, and the staff was friendly, but not what I would call helpful. The negative side is they do not enforce their own rules. Kids on bikes ride up and down the roads recklessly. I was almost hit from behind while my wife and I were walking to the Lodge. To drive golf carts you are supposed to be 16, have a valid drivers license, and liability insurance, but very young kids were observed driving with no parents along. The quiet time is supposed to be 11:00 P.M., a group of college age young adults across from us partied until 4:00 in the morning 2 nights in a row. I was in the office when another group of campers complained after the first night, and of course nothing was done. I also observed many sites, not just the college kids, with every available space taken with a tent, or vehicle. I do not recommend staying there for safety reasons, unless the owners remedy their actions and show control. As long as they fill up on the weekends they won't rock the boat in my opinion. I was told personally by seasonal campers that this downward trend in the rules started last year and has gotten worse. The place could be a very wonderful campground, but I guess until someone gets hurt the owners will look the other way. I won't go there again unless I hear of new ownership. We camped at Vista Royalle Campground in a Tent Trailer.

I believe our site number was 222. Most of the sites were very nice, but a bit small. There were some longer sites and wider sites in other areas for motorhomes and 5th wheels from what I saw when walking through the grounds. We did not use the pool but it looked fine but it is an indoor pool and when we were there it was very humid inside. The bathroom setup was a bit strange as they had Men's and Women's toilets in the front area and around the back was the showers which was a co-ed area. The strange part was they had 7 changing rooms along one wall and then back further in the building 7 or 8 showers. I didn't understand why they separated the changing area from the showers, kind of awkward in my opinion. Other than that a good place to go and it was quiet but we did stay during the week. I would probably go again if I am ever up in that area again. We camped at Frontier Wilderness Campground in a Tent Trailer.
