This is one of the poorer Corps parks that we have used. The spaces are spacious but many are not level. There are both open and shaded spaces. Interior roadways were poorly marked. Small dumpsters are positioned through out the park. Playground is dated. There is a lake swimming area and a shore line for parking boats. Verizon service was single bar 4G.

Date of Stay:

Some of the wooded spaces are a little narrow for a modern RV with slides. There is ample room to correct this but it has not been done. There are a fair number of open spaces for those who want satellite reception. Water pressure is low. Our site was level. Some are not. There is a nice pool but the lounge is not open except when the store is open. Road to the park is winding and hilly. Verizon reception is two bar 4G. Well less than half the spaces are annual so there is plenty of choice for the traveler. All sites are full hookup 50 amp. Cable and wifi are available for a fee. Interior roads are paved. However there are a few potholes that need patching.

This is a small park arranged around a small spring fed pond. The pond is stocked with trout and a fishing license isn't required. There also is a sand beach area and a nice adult area with seating and a fireplace adjacent to the pond. New owners had taken possession the week before we were here. everyone was extremely helpful and friendly. We were guided to our site and they helped us get settled in. Few sites have sewers. Good water and power (50 amp) at our site. The campsite had a picnic table and fire ring and was reasonably level. Not much chance of getting satellite TV because of the trees but there is a good selection of over the air TV. They have free WiFi which works well. Verizon service is 2 bar 4G. The maneuvering room is a little tight. We were only here for a day but easily could see returning to spend a week or two.

This is an older park in a rural setting. The lake is available for swimming but I wouldn't venture into it due to the quality of the water. This lake needs some serious attention. The interior roadways are all gravel and some are rutted due to erosion. The sites are also gravel and not very level. When we were here the store was not open. Other than at check-in we never saw any staff on the grounds. There were no planned activities during the middle of the week and little on the weekend. The pool was well used but again no staff present. There was a hot tub as well. We went sightseeing in the surrounding area and found the location acceptable. Verizon is borderline 4g and there are few sites that had DirecTV access due to the large trees. A number of sites in all the loops had the power boxes covered. We assumed these were inoperative. Unlike most Thousand Trails/Encore parks there is a high percentage of available sites for travelers.

The entrance road, interior roads and sites are gravel. Well graded while we were there. The sites are some of the most level we've encountered. almost all sites are pull through. Staff was very friendly and guided us to our site. The pool is heated and well maintained. Excellent Verizon service. We had a site that allowed Direct TV access. The showers and restrooms were extremely well maintained. There is a nice dog park.

This is a great county park that was used heavily on the weekend. All sites have level concrete pads. Some are short so make sure that you let them know the length of your rig when you register. About half the sites are full hookup and the remainder are water and electric. Good Verizon service and over the air TV. Satellite is spotty since there are mature trees. There is a nice playground, shelter, game room (limited hours), volleyball, horse shoe pits and fishing. Large grass areas will accommodate tent campers and many RV spaces have room for a tent. The entire facility is very well maintained especially since it is heavily used. They are in the process of constructing a pedestrian bridge across the river to the walking and biking paths. Staff is extremely friendly and accommodating. We made a reservation early in the week so we could attend a funeral on Saturday. Despite being almost full, they found a way to provide us a full hookup site. We will return.

I had hopes that this campground would improve. It appeared that Encore/Thousand Trails was willing to invest money in the campgrounds but all of the improvements have been aimed at the seasonal residents. They installed a new playground and sport court and rehabbed the pool two years ago. They also paved and re-graveled the sites in phase 4 but this area is now slowly being converted to seasonal. Last year they began reconstructing an old closed seasonal sectional. The only thing that has been done for non seasonal campers was prompted several years ago by the presence of a large number of long term construction workers. They added sewers to some of the sites in phase two. The construction workers had gravel installed at these sites so they were usable during wet weather. The sites aren't that usable since the utilities are not located in proximity to each other. We were at a site that has a narrow gravel pad. The sewer and water were on one side of the site about 30' apart and the electrical was on the other side of the pad about 10' from the pad. A very poor design. The electrical has been upgraded in the area were sewers were installed. However, the remainder of phase two has old electrical and almost no pads. Many of the boxes look very poor and I would be afraid to use some of them. Overall, this park caters to long term clientele and is adequate for an overnight stay. However, if it is prime season and you have children, there is a lot for them to do with pool, playground and lakes. We use it because we have a TT membership and have family in the area. I'd rate it as in the midrange of TT parks and below the middle of established commercial campgrounds. There is good Verizon and most sites have satellite access.

Thousand Trails/Encore has made substantial improvements to this park and more are underway. The bathrooms have been totally reconstructed and are very clean and modern. The pool area has been redone with new landscaping, hot tub, cabanas, lighting, sound system, etc. There is a new dock system on the lake. They are currently installing what appears to be cable TV to all the sites and new WiFi access points through out the park. Currently WiFi is available at a cost. We used our hotspot instead. The roads do need work but waiting until after the utilities are updated before doing this makes sense. The lodges could also use some updating but are clean. Others have complained about the lack of sites but we were here for three weeks including a holiday weekend and there were always sites available never less than 5. They are converting some of the open areas to mobile home sites but this does not impact the availability of camping sites. Excellent Verizon and over the air TV service. Our site was level but this isn't true of all of them although you should be able to level on all the sites. The pull through sites are close together and not the best choice. We definitely will be back and hope that TT continues to make improvements at all their parks.

The park is divided into four areas. A and C are wooded. The sites are not level and some are short. Area B is a gravel parking lot. The sites are long with sufficient length for any size rig. They are all back in. At least half of this area has good satellite TV access. Verizon access is 3G two bar. There are no picnic tables or fire rings. Not much area outside the rig for setting up chairs, etc. D is an overflow area very similar to B. There is free wifi and it is the best we have ever seen, free or pay, in any campground. The laundry facilities consist of a single washer and dryer on the outside of each of the wash houses. There is a small pool that was closed when we were here. The staff is outstanding. It is located in the city but is very quite at night. The park does not take reservations.

This is an older park with very tight spaces for modern RVs. The length and width were barely adequate to accommodate our 36' motor home with two slides and car. All spaces are back-ins. The electrical is adequate but could be troublesome during heavy air conditioning use. Some people had problems with the 30 amp outlets not working. The cable TV is excellent. Verizon is 4G one bar. Trees on most sites could interfere with satellite reception. The sites are dirt and not very level. Club house was nice. The lake was very low and not usable from the campsite. Road adjacent to campground is noisy. On Friday nights during football season, the PA from the adjacent high school is very loud. Adequate but not a great park.

Rate reflects Passport America discount. This is a small campground at Exit 1 on I-40. It is easy access from the interstate. Sites are level. Interior roadways and sites are gravel. There are no restrooms or amenities. It is full hookups. Great for an overnight stop.

Rate reflects Passport America discount. This campground is on top of a hill. The spots are flat with concrete pads. The interior roads are gravel. Good Verizon and satellite connections. The laundromat was clean and inexpensive. Staff was friendly. Would camp here again.

There are nine pull-through full hook up 50 amp sites. They are gravel but level. They are also free for the first three days and you don't even have to enter the casino except to register for the spot. The trains can be a bit annoying but not real bad. They aren't frequent. The food at the cafe in the casino has a great breakfast burrito. I'd definitely camp here again.

The rate reflects Passport America membership. This is a small campground built into a hill. The sites are level. The interior roads are narrow and graveled. Some of them are grass covered. The restroom is old but clean. About two thirds of the limited number of sites were occupied by longer term residents. When we pulled in at about 2 PM on a weekday, there were only two pull-through spaces available. One was full hookup and the other lacked sewer. It is walking distance from the Laura Ingalls Wilder home. If we wanted to visit that attraction again we would stay at this campground otherwise we will avoid it.

There are a couple of things that make this an 8 instead of a 10. There is a $12 reservation fee on top of the nightly rate. There are no sewers but there is a dump station. There is no pool. Now for the good things. The sites are very roomy with plenty of shade. Even with the trees, there are plenty of spaces that can get satellite. The Verizon service is 5 bar 4G. They recently (2014) made improvements to provide water along with the electricity to all sites. The bathrooms are exceptionally clean. However, they get lots of traffic due to the lack of sewers. The park provides easy access to Milwaukee and the surrounding communities. There are two very nice playgrounds for the young ones. Generally it is very quiet except for an occasional party on the weekends. The hosts do control the noise during quite hours. Lots of locals use the park on the weekends so you can get information on local activities and restaurants. This is our base anytime we are in southeast Wisconsin.
