Excellent! This has become our favorite place to stay, due to all it offers. Owners are very friendly and helpful. The restrooms are clean and pleasant. Our favorite part is that we can pull our pontoon boat up to our campsite and leave it in the water all weekend while we camp. They have a nice shop for supplies and fishing gear, including gas and oil for the boat or the car. Also, it is so quiet and relaxing, even on the busy weekends. The sites are large enough that you don't hear everything or everyone around you. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Great place to pull the boat up and camp and that go out fishing or pleasure boating for the day. 40 of the sites are located directly on the Mississippi river with relatively easy access to the main channel. Can get a small to medium sized boat in and out of this area. The camping is nice with mostly shaded sites. The one main downfall of the campground is the twin railroad tracks that run right next to the campground area, but if you want to be on the Mississippi than this just goes with the territory. The sites are very large and can easily accommodate 2 families on one site. Overall would recommend this campground. We camped here in a Tent.
There are two campgrounds, one on the bluff with the view, and more open, the other in the wooded area, and more secluded. Wonderful scenery and wildlife. The only downside, the showers in the Homestead (wooded) campground have been closed for three years and you must drive to the other campground to take a shower, but they are modern and very nice. Lots to see in the Prairie Du Chien area. Still our favorite state park. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Really wonderful state park. Two distinctly different campgrounds. The Wisconsin Ridge campground offers spectacular views of the Wisconsin River valley. The Homestead campground offers a quieter, more wooded setting. The whole park is well maintained, and staffed by friendly folks who try their best to make your stay enjoyable. Lots of well maintained trails that wind through a variety of terrain. They have a canoe rental and a well marked canoe trail that will take you through Mississippi River backwaters. A definite family destination. The only downside (keeps the park from being a ten) is the lack of showers in the Homestead campground. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We had an electric site number 205E with 30 amp power. Fire rings are bigger than most campgrounds. There were very few mosquitoes! At night you can see many fireflies. There is a small but cool cave on their many hiking trails. There are at least 4 scenic overlooks in this park. The views are the most spectacular in the state of Wisconsin. From some of these views, you can see where the the Wisconsin River meets the Mississippi River. There is so much to see here, we couldn't get it all in, in three days. We're definitely going back sometime soon. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The views from the campground are breathtaking. The new shower and restroom facilities are exceptionally nice. The roads and general appearance need some repairs. The lady at the check-in office was exceptionally helpful, and knowledgeable. The campground hosts were also great. It is a great park. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We initially stopped here for one night while traveling through the area, and ended up spending another night. Beautiful sites up on the bluff with nice views to the west. Hiking trails are plentiful with Effigy Mounds inside the park to see. The camping rate reflects the camping fee only and since we were non-Wisconsin residents we got to pay another $10 (per day) fee for park entry. If we were able to use Wisconsin State Parks more often in a given year we would purchase an annual pass. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Our family had a wonderful time camping at this park last weekend (June 2008). The sites in WI ridge were very spacious also with a beautiful view overlooking the bluffs of the WI river. We had site 120 which was at the end of a cul de sac. Our children ages 4 and 7 had a great time hiking and biking (lots of great exercise.) My husband also rode on one of the mountain bike trails as well and saw deer on the trail, very peaceful. For some down time, the we also did some crafts at the nature center for the kids. The playground is close as well. We will return to this wonderful state park soon. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Not sure where the previous poster camped, but it wasn't at Wyalusing. This SP has no mini-golf or full-hookup sites. Most sites are not tight, but well-spaced, typical of Wisconsin SPs. Wis. Ridge CG has a view to die for! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
A great place to camp with your family. We had a great time. The staff was very friendly. The restrooms and showers were clean. A nice playground, pool and mini golf. My only bad comment is the full hookup sites are to close together. The fire ring is next to were you park your truck. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a very scenic campground by the bluffs bordering the Mississippi/Wisconsin rivers. Some campsites are tricky to get into, but the Ranger helps out. Campsites overlooking the bluffs are smaller without electricity, but many others can see the bluffs. There is a lot to do in the area, also in bordering Iowa. We will definitely return. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Wonderful park on top of high bluffs overlooking the confluence of the Wisconsin and Mississippi rivers. Most of the Wisconsin Ridge sites have direct blufftop views of the river, however, many sites are small and require tight turns to get to so be careful with bigger rigs. The Homestead sites are at the edge of a forest overlooking prairie land. Sites here are usually larger and more private. While the campground facilities are in-line with other Wisconsin state parks (slightly towards the rustic side), the park itself offers lots to see and do, particularly a fantastic canoe route in the wetlands area along the Mississippi, as well as nice hiking and biking opportunities along the bluffs. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
This was our first adventure at Jellystone's and we were quite happy with it. We were in the full hook up section (site 129), it had a concrete pad for a patio, but was a little cramped. Water pressure was a little low, and fire pits are small. It was clean and the staff was very friendly. There are extra charges for some of the activities, but we found them fun and good for the kids. I have already recommended this campground to other campers, we will try another Jellystone on the future. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The park was great! They had a lot of activities for the kids and adults young at heart to do. We stayed with 2 other families in one of the big cabins. It was small but the cabin was we laid out that we were able to sleep 6 adults and 5 kids with no problems. We were able to use the free WiFi in the ranger station/store with no issues. We camped here in a Campground Cabin.

Very nice, clean campground. As someone mentioned before, the down side is the closeness to railtracks. It is kind of annoying that trains run every 30 minutes or so, even during the night. We also didn't like that you have to pay for everything, even to use the jumping pillow, which appears to be part of the payground area. All in all, it is a very nice campground located in the beautiful area. We definitely would come back again. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Nice facilities but disappointed that they charged for everything. Why is Boo-Boo charging admission for his own birthday party? They didn't mention admission for every little thing on their web-site. They also failed to mention a very active freight train was running 100+ car trains every 20 minutes about a block from our campsite ... forget sleeping! Disappointing place. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed here in June of 2006 with a large group and had a lot of fun. The sites were nice and wide. Several in our group had sites next to each other with pop ups and were able to put them across the back instead of just backed in which made for a ton of gathering space. They have a nice pool, cute playground, a little mini golf area, and rent pedal bike, go carts and golf carts. You cannot bring your own go carts. The campground is nestled in a valley which is very pretty, but, no cell phone worked. Depending on which carrier you had, some would work just outside of the park on the road, and others didn't come in service for several miles. We camped here in a Motorhome.
