Site 146 was a serious pain to get level in....grass site with so many bumps and hills that we ultimately gave up and grew satisfied with a slightly off-level stay. Connections in oddly placed areas. Overall, the park had a lot of amenities, offered wifi which was a huge blessing because our verizon jetpack barely connected (verizon cell phone did not get service here) Very hot while we were here so we appreciated the lake beach. Swimming pool seemed to offer a lot of excitement, but we're just not excitement kind of people so we skipped it. If we were here during a busier time, we would not have been unable to back in to our site, as the access road was narrow and it would have been very tricky to get around the trees and poles and cabins in the way (we "pulled through" an adjoining site to get in.) Given we were trying to stay closer to other family members, we kept our given site but would otherwise have tried to find a different one. Excellent camp store and lots of opportunities to waste money on arcade-like machines and "mining" for the kids. We thought the rate was far too high for what was offered.

We love the island. We love it so much we'd probably stay in the middle of a mudpit and find it hard to complain. The campground has seen some changes in recent years--mostly in terms of cabin builds. But one thing does remain consistent...if you want to use the showers, bring your galoshes. The drainage problem there that was also present years ago results in a pretty nasty shower experience (ankle deep in mysterious swamp like whoknowswhat). Some attempts seem to be made with keeping up with the cleanliness, but the feminine products floating in the showers and crazy slow-drain soapy residue made the restrooms something to avoid during our stay. The laundry facilities are the only ones on the island, but it will cost ya $5.00 a load (2.75 wash, 2.25 dry). Some sites will challenge even the best backer-upper, as maneuvering around trees and then attempting to be level is not always an easy task here. Lots of tent camping among RV sites with W/E hookups, the purpose of which seems to be to use the electricity to run radios. All day, all night. Given that tents cannot contain noise like RVs can, some additional separation or assignment of sites might be helpful....for instance a section for tents that want electricity, etc. The park could really use some camphosts, as it appears one or two people are trying to manage the whole thing...and it shows via a lot of site neglect.

The staff and owners here were a highlight---super friendly, helpful with ideas, and patient. Our pull-through gravel site was fairly easy to get level. Verizon 4G connected well. It rained through most of our stay, although the place looked to have some really amazing walking trails and things to do that we did not have a chance to experience. Laundry on site...2 washers, 4 dryers.

Three week stay to see family and visit the local library for geneology research. We LOVED the resident goose population as there were wee chicks growing in front of our eyes. The park is near the bridge, and rescue vehicles seem to only come from Marinette over the bridge to Menominee, so there was quite frequent siren noise. Industrial action by the river made for some stinky days that resembled the smell of fried power cords, which threw us off a bit at first. Staff here were excellent and during a water line issue were very communicative and apologetic about it while the repairs were being done. Fastest way into the park---go into the shopping center and right between the two major buildings (Kmart and the grocery store), and straight ahead is the entrance. (or, follow the GPS or published directions and loop through the streets wondering if you found it yet). Handy laundromat nearby next to the grocery store. Showers were private, pristine, well-drained, and plenty of hot water. Very friendly seasonal folks.

Monthly rate is reflected in the nightly. This is a pretty impressive place. Many full time residents. Yet, we met several who were doing their 6-month move, wherein they must leave the park and then return to a different site. What a genius way to keep the place looking fresh. Beautiful landscaping. Lots to do without ever leaving "home". Coyotes singing every evening. Overall, an excellent stay at a very well-run and huge park. We'd absolutely stay again.

Nice spot! Helpful staff and even let us into the closed pool (pretty cold! But great!). Laundry facilities were large enough to handle a couple weeks of craziness. Friendly folks wandering around, excellent landscaping. Well-stocked camp store. Overall, a very nice overnight stay.

Given that this is the most convenient spot near the south rim to have a full hookup, it's just fine. Clean areas, nice check in process. Great spot to stay while visiting the GC. We'd stay again. Verizon WiFi worked with a booster, but still a bit spotty (for those who get to work while traveling). Wildlife spotted in the campsite: Ravens (who got into the trash bag and mocked the dog), elk.

Big gravel parking lot. A decent spot to stop for the night, but wouldn't want to "live" there. Swift office staff with speedy check-in, much appreciated. We'd stop again if rolling through. Petrified forest is miles away. It's a 70 mile round trip to see that particular spot from the park.

Rate reflects a monthly stay. Overall, a quiet, no-nonsense spot. Lots of renovations occurring. Very nice, new, shower/restroom facilities. Laundry available, but limited by open office hours. Expect no staff on arrival and to pay in the box. Be aware that some sites are not as expected (missing sewer hookups, broken lines, malfunctioning elect.) so expect a shift of site, even if given one via reservation. Limited 50A sites--and not clearly indicated for a self-service (mostly) RV park. Rough roads throughout--go very slow. Very high water pressure--use a regulator. Park WiFi spotty, but Verizon worked well here. Very easy on/off highway, and town has an off-leash dog park (3 miles away). Full-time residents are present, but nothing like previous reviews, as the place is under new management. It may be quite lovely in upcoming months.

Convenient for a weekend trip around Pike's Peak and surrounding areas. Tight spaces, but great parking assistance from staff, who were waiting at the door as we rolled in. While being situated next to (read: one foot away from) a fast-running creek was interesting and tolerable for a weekend, it would not be my choice again as safety with a dog and kid on board is primary. Overall, attentive and friendly staff, efficient Wi-Fi at the site, and polite neighbors made for an excellent brief stay. At times, an overwhelming dump-tank smell wafting around made outside relaxing a bit tainted. With the recent flash flooding in Colorado, I'll admit the sound of the rushing creek wasn't quite as calming as it might have been pre-flood.

It's worth the money. We were amazed at the kid-friendly nature of this place. Lucky enough to enjoy a weekday with low activity in the park, which was quiet and relaxing. The pool is the most kid-happy place I've seen at a campground. Laundry facilities were great, showers/restrooms clean. Staff extremely helpful and knowledgeable, nice camp store with some foodie options. Activities for kids on the weekends were amazing. Even when the park was full and hopping with families and kids all over, it was a safe and happy spot. We'd absolutely come here again, if anything to spend a little more time in Sioux Falls, a lovely city. The Butterfly house was a great spot to take a little, and the zoo an easy morning stroll.

Some highlights: Admission to the neighboring museum, grassy areas, level spot, nice travelers. But the downfalls: no kid-friendly spots like playgrounds, etc., sites so close together and some switched. So that our neighbor put their slide and awning out and it prevented us from putting our own out: they were that close, slanted opposite and door-to-door. I like a little more privacy than what that offered, and it was tricky to get our rig out without crashing into the neighbor. Bathrooms were sketchy: lots of grime, signs indicating malfunction, rubber mats that did not appear to have been tended to (we passed on showering there). The neighboring museum seems like a treasure from 1960. It does not appear to have been updated much since then (similar to the RV park), yet is an eclectic collection of Americana that is worth an overnight stay. We'd come again, but we'd fight for a roomier site.

We love this little, super cheap spot to stay. Several times throughout the month we took a break from our boondock spot and enjoyed free WiFi, a dog park, the interesting wildlife in the park, awesome playground, and overall very quiet and respectful visitors. A nice shower, warm water, and clean surroundings made the stay worthwhile. A water hookup would really shoot this park to the top of our list.

Pros: clean facilities, responsive staff, nice beach along the river and friendly visitors, beautiful nature walk through the forest. Very nice camp store. Steven's Point library offers nonresident cards. Excellent Friday fish fry at the onsite restaurant. Cons: WiFi signal was too weak to be reached, even in the office. Because this is very important for us, the rating was lower. Highway noise. Minimum 8 mile drive to gas stations, grocery. Coin-operated showers (25 cents for 6 minutes). Non-shaded site plus high winds made for a hot stay. They appear to be planting shade trees to remedy this, but it was unpleasant.

Date of Stay:

Very nicely wooded, full of nature. Creek runs through the campground. Temporary sites were within proximity to the office for wifi access at the site. Spring rains made the area surrounding the site a swamp. It was a very muddy stay. Nice laundry facilities, clean showers/bathrooms that could use some updating. Dog friendly, and the seasonal residents are very warm. As the weather warmed, the campground became quite lively on the weekend. Tubes can be rented for a ride down the creek, and there are paddle-boats, rowboats, etc., for rent. Beautiful playgrounds for the kids, and mini golf/horseshoes. Limited camp store but this was being renovated at the time of our stay. Tick checks are necessary daily, and with all that wonderful nature does come a lot of bugs. Leveling was a bit tricky on the grass sites, which were very close together. We would absolutely come again. A very friendly place to stay, and great for kids.
