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.

Rate is based on weekly rate. We stayed for 8 days. Campground is in a nice city park. During the week there were very few sites occupied. On the weekend there were only a few available sites. There are four pull-through sites and the rest are back in. The pads are gravel and each has a picnic table and fire ring. Only about half the sites have sewer. Most of these are in the western portion of the campgrounds. The sewer connection is protected by a plastic ring that makes it difficult to make connections. The restrooms are dated but clean. There are numerous trees in and around the campground so satellite TV reception is iffy. We found three sites where it was possible. Verizon is three bar 4G. The park has a nice walking path, several playgrounds and sport fields. There is a disc golf course. There isn't much to Dorchester itself but it is a short drive to larger communities with more amenities. The nearest laundry is in Medford. Don't miss the cheese makers in the area. For a full hookup 50 amp site under $20 a night, this is a very nice place. We will camp here next time we are in the area.

There are a very limited number of spaces, about eight, for bigger rigs with full hookups. These are in an open field a good distance from the water, restrooms, and the office. The remainder of the sites are suitable for tents, small travel trailers and popups. Didn't see much of the staff. The space was long (100') and adequately spaced to accommodate slides and a screen tent. It had a fire ring and picnic table, both very nice. Fair Verizon service and easy satellite access in the full hookup sites. Lots of things to do in the area. Would camp here again.

We camped here the 15th of June. The pool and lodge were not open. Both were closed for maintenance. They thought the pool would be open in the next week or two. There is a new manager this year and he is trying to get things into shape. The road into the campground is narrow dirt and gravel. Hope you don't meet another unit going the other way. The water connections are hit and miss. frequently four or five to a connection. The sites are level and many have concrete pads. Verizon is two bars. Would come back but only because I'm a Thousand Trails member.

Rate reflects TT membership. This campground offers two choices. The first is by the road; noisy but sewer and good electrical. The second is towards the river; quieter , no sewer and poor electrical. Unknowingly, we chose near the river. The electrical varied from 112 to below 108 volts even though the majority of people were not using air conditioners. In between the two extremes is a low area which floods and is very soft. There were numerous ruts. They do accommodate campers with dogs by providing dog poop drop off containers throughout the park. However, there are only two sets of dumpsters and they are both near the front of the park. Sites are large and a good mixture of shaded and open spots. Staff is friendly. The walking trails are interesting.

Rate was actually $0 since we are members. Large membership campground that is now open to the public. Many level wooded sites. Some sites require work to level. Because of the trees, satellite TV is impossible. Over the air TV is iffy. Verizon is 4G 2 bars. Very clean. Rest rooms are dated but clean. There is a swimming pool but it was closed because it was near the end of the season. They close November 1. Lots of seasonal units scattered throughout the park. Nice place if you want to get away from the TV and just relax.
