Pull thru sites are a good size. The campground WI-FI is very spotty - at best. Many seasonal units in this campground. Chaotic kid activity. They had a kids activity to make T-shirts, yet they had no kid sizes only adult sizes. Everything is an extra charge. Wrist bands needed to do activities and they are $25 per child. We have been here before, but this will be our last trip. To expensive for family. Not well kept or supervised campground. The water was shut off for an hour on a holiday weekend right at the lunch hour. Gravel roads very dusty in the campground. Save your money and camp elsewhere. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Sites are not paved and roads are gravel. Entrance area for checkin is very crowed and close and roadways to sites are not very wide and in need of tree trimming. No ability to get satellite. Campsites are kind of dark and dreary due to coverage of trees. Shade is nice but this was too much. This is a campground that is best utilized by families with smaller rigs. It appeared that there were lots and lots of things for the kids to do. Entrance to park is on a curve so care is needed going and coming. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground was nice enough to take us in when another campground (Crystal lake RV Resort)had double-booked several sites including ours. From the time we pulled in, the staff was super friendly and accommodating. If you have children this is a great place to stay. There are plenty to keep the kids busy, and many activities to keep them entertained. Amazingly with all of the activities, everything is on time, and runs smoothly. Bathrooms were clean, store and restaurant were nice, and carried the essentials. Sites were a good size, and the park was clean. This campground included both a swimming pond and swimming pool. I highly recommend this place to families with children (of all ages). We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great campground with lots of activities for kids. Sites were hard to get into with a 12ft pop up. Anything bigger than my camper would have been a real chore to get into. Staff was real nice, and the campground offers a lot of things for the kids to do. The only thing I didn't like was the fact that they charge $10 bucks or so for a wrist band to putt putt and to use the jump pillow. Many campgrounds are going to this though so it wasn't a surprise. Really had a good time though and will return. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Great place for kids. Lots of things for them to do. We stayed during the week so not as many but enough. Really nice campground and close by to lots of activities. We were there to visit the Dells. Of course that explains all the children with all the amusements at the Dells. We personally would not have wanted to be there on a weekend. The owners were very accommodating and very friendly. Sites were a little difficult to back in with all the trees. But overall our stay was really nice. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Large spaces, lots of trees and grass-children playing-dogs fetching--almost idyllic. On the week-end the entire tone of the campground changed--2-3 carloads of people for each campsite, screaming children (and adults), barking dogs, car alarms--clothes lines strung from every vertical structure in the park with not only bathing suits and towels on them, but underwear, tablecloths, etc--(it looked like a Brooklyn slum scene in a bad 50's movie). Due to the way the park is laid out--all of the activities (pool, playground, arcade, miniature golf, and bikes are right at the only road to enter the park--walking, driving or riding was next to impossible due to the crush of people-and very dangerous to all. Most parents were responsible--but some abdicated their responsibility and allowed their children to bully smaller children, be rude and generally behave in a dangerous and irresponsible manner. The campground was hideous for 2 solid days. By Sunday afternoon the "hordes" had gone home, most (not all) of the clotheslines were down and the park returned to its pleasant, quiet, idyllic self. This park is close to the Dells, the Crane foundation, shopping, restaurants and Baraboo and the Circus Museum. We would stay here again--but NEVER, EVER on a week-end! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great facilities. Staff very outgoing often stopping by our site to ask about concerns or if anything was needed. Numerous activities to keep everyone entertained. Will return! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very clean and well taken care of. Owners and staff will do anything to help. This is a great park for a family with children. Also for a family park it was very quiet. Wish all parks were like this one. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
My husband and I camped at Baraboo Hills Campground for several weeks in May, including the Memorial Day weekend. Our children and grandchildren also camped there with us and we all had a wonderful time. The park offers many things for kids. There is a nice heated swimming pool, miniature golf, catch and release fish pond (with lots of big fish) and a little train that travels around the park for the kids to ride. The park managers are very friendly and try hard to make our stay pleasant. The park is very well kept and clean. We are looking forward to camping there again in the future. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

I would like to recommend this campground to all who read the entries at this site. The owner of this campground strives very hard to keep things clean, neat, orderly and safe. I heard some of the reservationists explain the quiet time policy to some young guests, and as a family of four with small children, I am really grateful for the effort put forth to ensure that each site is guaranteed peace and quiet at a decent time. Baraboo Hills is all about "family" as you can tell by the recently added train ride which gave our small children a short ride around the camp. There is no need to leave the campground for activities as there is plenty to do here. In the morning, we noticed that left our truck radio on all night, and the truck would not start. The manager came out and jumped our battery right away so we could get going at no charge. Now that's going the extra mile! We'll be back year after year and will recommend this campground to our friends. We camped here in a Campground Cabin.
I'd like to commend the staff and management at Baraboo Hills Campground in Wisconsin for a job well done! I checked into a w/e site, began to set up my pop up camper and lo and behold in the downpour evening, the crank broke! I came back to office frustrated and wanting to cancel my camping weekend. The manager greeted me and immediately set my family up in an available cabin and called a mechanic to repair my pop up. Within 24 hours my popup was fixed and my family was still able to enjoy a wonderful week of camping. Thank you for going the extra mile Baraboo Hills! My family was very pleased with the cleanliness, kindness and caring attitude your staff put forth. It was invigorating to see the staff working so hard (cleaning showers, bathrooms, cabins, delivering wood, mowing and trimming trees) yet having a good time. We're making this our annual spot! We camped here in a .

We stayed here memorial day weekend. We stayed in a campsite across from some of the cabins, as we had friends staying in the cabin. I felt it was a nice campground to stay at. Sites were wide enough and had some room. Staff was friendly, family's camping nearby were all friendly. Pool was full as it was a great weekend for weather. Back to the sites. They were grassy, shaded, water, electric and sewer. Wouldn't ask to change any of that. Thank you for the great weekend. Our friends loved the cabin as well. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have camped at this park many times over the last 6 years, including last Labor Day weekend. It is my kids first choice in parks because they like the free sport shop. Regarding the above negative reviews, as I mentioned, we camped there at the same time so I was concerned about the issue of harrassment and stalking. I checked with the Baraboo Police Department and was informed that they do not have jurisdiction over the campground, hence they did not send out anyone from their department. The campground falls under the Sauk Co. Sherriff's Department, so I checked with them and they also said that they never sent anyone out to talk to the owners. So the prior statements regarding the police are not true. As I mentioned my family was there, we witnessed their loud behavior and to answer the question in a prior review as to "If they were so bad why weren't they told to leave?" It might help to know that on Sunday night we over heard the owners trying to talk to them, and when the owners said something about evicting them, the campers response was something to the effect of; you can't kick us out, we've been drinking and can't drive. This admission from them explains a lot of what was really going on. If they were drinking, their memory is most likely cloudy and skewed regarding the events of the weekend. This confirms my first thoughts which are that the large group of people we saw there, who were loud and disruptive, are trying to bad mouth a nice place. It is my families first choice in campgrounds, the bathrooms are always clean and there is always something for my kids to do. I would continue to go there with out any concerns. The staff has always been very helpful and friendly. We will continue to go and recommend this campground to any family. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

Our family was there Labor Day weekend as well and we defineately did not see the conditions you are claiming. Nor the "evil" staff members either. We were camping in the same area as you were and have a different view of what happened. There were times that the noise level at night was a little much for us. We were not the only ones who felt this way. I don't think that the security staff or the campground owner would single any one out if there was not a concern by surrounding sites. After all there were a lot of other guests there besides your sites. However I do commend a campground that enforces a "quiet time " policy. In fact it is one of the main reasons we have continued to return to this campground. A family atmosphere is what they have always provided. I am all for people having a good time but respect for the campground and the other guests has always been a concern for me when we visiting different areas. I have never had to worry about that at this campground. I think you need to look at the definition of the word "stalking" in the dictionary. You may have it confused with the enforcement of campground policies. It is a shame that your experience was not a good one. I don't think, however that it was the fault of the Campground authorities. We have been camping here for several years and I am sorry but we strongly disagree with what you have claimed.
We camped here in a Motorhome.

This is an excellent campground. The campground is beautiful and well maintained with level sites. The owners and employees were extremely friendly and helpful. When you buy firewood from them they will even deliver it to your site. The bathroom and showers were neat and clean. This is truly a family campground. Our children had an excellent time renting pedal carts, using the pool, playing on the large play ground and using equipment from the free sports shop. The complete time we there our children always had something to do. Great place to camp and we will be going back again. We camped here in a Motorhome.

My family and I have camped at this campground several times over the last five years. We
have never had or seen a problem as you have described. The reason we go, and will continue to go there is because it is clean, quiet and very family oriented. I feel that this campground caters to the family more than any of the others that we have been to that are in the Baraboo, Wisconsin Dells area. The only exception for us was this past Labor Day weekend in 2003. The same time you said someone in your group was there. If you look on their map they have 157 sites. You say there were 10 families who had a problem. My guess is that is is not 10 individual families, but one group of people that were in 10 different sites that were there together. It seemed to me that none of you bothered to think about the other sites around you, like my family. Quiet time starts at 10:30 p.m. and these people seemed to forget that there are certain rules that apply to ALL of the guests. On more than one evening you were up and were loud, whether you care to realize that or admit it. If we were bothered by it I am sure others were. But enough about you. As I mentioned before this campground is extremely family oriented. In fact the owners have gone out of their way, every year, by constantly making improvements on the campground facilities as well as offering new activities for the kids. What other campground offers free bike rental, free mini-putt golf and free rental of other sports equipment. Crafts and movies for the kids in the brand new pavillion were new additions this year. Other campgrounds that we have visited over the years seem to nickel and dime you every time you turn around just to keep your kids busy. Every time we camp here they have always given us information on where to get the best discount tickets for the Wisconsin Dells attractions so we can save a few dollars. We have always experienced a friendly and helpful staff not like the one you have described. I stake my five years of experience against what you have claimed. We already have reservations booked for next year. This campground gets a perfect 10. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a beautiful park with unbelievable views. There are many beautiful hiking trails that take you to high bluffs that provide a spectacular view of the park. The lake is beautiful. Unfortunately, it was too cold to get in it. There are 2 swim beaches and boat, kayak, paddle boat, and canoe rentals. There are 3 convenience stores in the park that stock most things you may have forgotten or run out of. Wi-Fi is available in the north and south end. Convenience store/coffee house areas with plenty of seating available. We were not able to get any TV channels at our campsite, but we don't usually watch TV anyway. We stayed in the Quartzite campground, but also went through a few of the other campgrounds and each is full of big, beautiful sites. There were 3 clean shower houses just in our campground alone, which only has about 70 sites. Leveling was a bit of an issue. This is a huge, beautiful park with so much to offer and we will definitely return. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I believe this is the oldest State Park in the USA but don't quote me on that. The staff is informative and friendly and we had a terrific back in site near the lavatories. Fire pit was great and firewood available at the gate (fee). We would definitely stay again. Lots of old growth trees, a beautiful lake, excellent roads and access off the highway and we really felt like we were camping in the woods. A true state park experience. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We were able to get a walk-in site in the Quartzite loop for Labor Day weekend. Prior reviewer was right, lots of sites (including ours) were un-level and required some effort. But, the sites were large overall. Also, the trails and lake were very enjoyable. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We camp here annually, usually on a non-electric site. Each site in the Ice Age loop is separated by trees and bushes so it offers a little more privacy. It's a beautiful and well maintained state park. We camped here in a Tent.
The sites were big but they were so unlevel that we had a very difficult time setting up our 5th wheel. When we finally did, it looked like IT was tilted but its just that the ground was so sloped (both front to back and side to side). I am not sure how a motorhome would be able to compensate enough. We were in Quartzite, since the other campgrounds were closed. Our neighbors kept letting their dogs off their leash (as did several others) even after I asked them not to because I have a cat out on the leash. Most of the time we had no cell signal (AT&T) but we did get 2 channels on the TV. The dump station had very low hanging branches, causing us to scratch the top of our trailer. If you don't have a National Park Pass or Wisconsin State pass, you'll have to get one to camp here, adding to the cost. Next time I'd probably stay somewhere else. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The distance between sites was huge! There are 3 different campgrounds, so it would be a good idea to check them all out before deciding on a site. There is no water hookup, so you must fill your fresh water tank before you set up at your site. There is no Wi-Fi available at the campsite. There is one at the campground store. Since this State Park is part of the Ice Age National Trail, the Federal Golden Access card can be used here. It got me reduced rates. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We've been here a number of times, one of our favorites state parks. Many sites from heavily shaded to full sun. Bathrooms and showers are generally well kept but they do fall behind a bit during the morning rush. You do want to go off-peak times if you want a hot water shower. Lots of activities available from hiking, rock climbing, fishing, and swimming. Nature Center is small but interesting. Basement floor has a historical exhibit that gives a good overview but probably appeals more to adults. This is one of the most popular parks in the WI system so if you're looking for peace and quiet during the summer months, you won't find it here on the weekends. Weekdays are better, but still crowded. Kids love it. Close to Baraboo for supplies and a few good places to eat. 15-20 min. away from WI. Dells, the tourist trap of the world but a great diversion for the kids if you run into bad weather. Many good places to eat there if you're so inclined. We camped here in a Tent.
It is a fantastic place to camp! Even though we like to try other campgrounds now & then, Devil's Lake always is a wonderful experience. It rained every day off & on but we still had a great time. We had nice camping neighbors. The facilities include clean bathrooms and beautiful Lake to swim in. There is great hiking too. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
An excellent park! There is a lake that has a swimming beach (though due to heavy rains the beach was under water). There is no drainage into the lake so it is clean without E. Coli issues. Plenty of bathrooms around. There's plenty of wooded sites but even the open sites are spacious and offer some trees. This is close to the Dells. There is also a camp store that meets your needs. This is prime camping here. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Devil’s Lake State Park, near Baraboo, WI. Stayed here for two days in late June 2007. Quite a nice state park campground, including being big-rig friendly with many of their sites. Electricity only. Great hiking on the grounds of the state park, including a somewhat challenging east and west bluff trail with about a 500 foot rise in elevation. Stunning views at the summits of each climb. Devil’s Lake has lots to offer – swimming, boating (electric motors only), scuba diving, fishing. Great beach area with numerous picnic sites. Clean, quiet, lots to do. For those who need more stimulation, the Wisconsin Dells and all that is offered there is just 12 miles away. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a very nice state park. We originally had site 207 which was in a wooded shady area. Because of the weather and bugs we changed to site 100, which is huge open site and worked well for us. The hike up to balance rock was strenuous but worth it! We ended up paying a bit more for the campsite because of fees and being from out of state. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The guy at the house/office brings you back to the area and lets you see and know what you are getting before you pay. He told us a lot of the area where the nightly campers would have been parked was flooded so he suggested the area in the trees. NO ELECTRIC at any nightly site. All electric and hook ups are for seasonal sites and from the looks most of them are there every year and some may even live there year round. From what we did see they seem very nice. After a few hours in the spot we got tired of the mosquitoes and moved over on the other side of the area where there was more left over dried up mud from from the flood and this also allowed us to use the satellite dish for TV as it was a nice clear shot for dish network. Air TV was weak on rabbit ears, sprint air card was roam only and slow. Area was nice and flat, good for wheelchair use, but the restroom was not good to roll in the door. Showers appeared to be pay type showers, but we did not use them. Because of the distance from the seasonal sites we did run the Honda all night for electric. We were also the only ones down there so it was no problem for anyone. This could be a nice place again if the grass was to grow back and updates were made to the shower bath house. Number of sites available is unknown. Fortunately, because we have a ramp, we use that as a table so we didn't need to move a table to the new spot. There is a swimming pond that some kids were swimming in. There does not appear to be any group fire anymore, but they do still do sing alongs sometime, but we did not join in as we were tired and took it easy. We camped here in a van. Would camp here again if they can get the grass to grow back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice, out of the way campground. So out of the way in fact, that we got pretty
lost trying to find it. BUT even though we got there late (10 PM) the owners we waiting up for us (their house is right at the entrance) and they couldn't have been nicer. They took us back to our site, showed us where everything was (since it was dark) and offered to help us back in. There were a lot of seasonal campers, but the campground was quiet. They have a small "ranch" with horses, rabbits, etc for the kids to visit, and a large group campfire with music on Saturday nights. A nice family campground indeed. Close to Circus World Museum in Baraboo, and about 15 miles from Wisconsin Dells. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a nice campground; however, being summer and so near the Dells it is loaded with families with small children. We have no problem with this, but it also means lots of pit fires. Unfortunately, the campers next to us had a fire going day and night burning plastic and garbage. When we explained that the smoke was coming into our RV they did not care. When they left the fire unattended we contacted the office. The hostess put out the fire and said she would speak to them. We were leaving the next morning so we don't know if it had any affect. There was virtually no cell service. We must have been in a valley. There was plenty of shade in the park. There is a playground, but it is located next to the dump. The laundry is very nice. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Staff was friendly & helpful. Facility was neat, clean and well cared for. Large area for the kids to play and run that is away from campers. Pedal cars a golf carts available for rent. Had train rides for kids at night, but charged $1. There was also an ice cream sundae event. Charge was $3, but there was a variety of toppings to cover a large helping of ice cream. Free wagon rides were also given later in the evening, 8:30 pm. Low hanging tree limbs may be an issue for the big rigs. Some sites could use leveling, especially front to back. The gravel pads seemed narrow, but very usable for the automatic leveling system. We had an electrical issue, and staff was there to help right away. We would probably would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stopped here to visit friends who live in the area and though we had no reservations, the staff outdid themselves to make us welcome and comfortable. The rate reflects Passport America discount. The camp store was well stocked and there was a nice swimming pool and other interesting recreations. Lots of room to walk the dog. The campground is wooded and though we were able to get satellite TV, it would probably be difficult in most of the sites. We enjoyed the park and will certainly visit again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park was nearly perfect; especially during a humid heat wave with shade a-plenty. Very clean facilities. The showers are a push style faucet, where you push in the knob, and the fairly hot water comes out for about 45 seconds. That took some getting used to. Overall this is a great place to call home for 3 nights. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Sites below the office are nicely laid out with space between sites to afford some privacy. Roads were paved with gravel pads at sites. Nice trees all around for shade during the day. Our site was electric and water, and the rate of $19 was the Passport America rate good Sun-Thurs any time. The office staff person was very nice and helpful with things to do in the area. We didn't try the Wi-Fi but our Verizon card worked well. No Tracfone service until we went a mile down the road towards town. Good over-air TV reception. The campground is close to Baraboo and the Dells, so would be a good spot to stay when seeing the local sights. We enjoyed our two night stay at this campground and would stay here again when in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park looked real nice to me. I had no problem with parking and the pull through sites looked wide enough for slide outs. Park host was real friendly and helpful with finding thing to do in Dells. Wi-Fi works great. $23 was the Passport America rate. You bet I would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Clean park ,but hilly and sites not level. Could not get cell phone reception, bad TV , sites very,very close together. On a hillside and no air flow. Only positive is if you have children they might like the park with games, pool etc. I would not stay there again We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
A nice park for an overnight or a few nights to explore the Dells. Large swimming pool. Our site was not level, but could be easily leveled with blocks. Lots of outdoor games and a small store. Would stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was our first time to the park and we enjoyed every minute of it! A very nice clean park and easy to find. Only thing that was annoying were the roundabouts on Rt 12 that you have to go through to get to N Reedsburg Road, they are difficult to maneuver with a 40ft 5th wheel! Great playground for the kids, a sand volleyball court that my kids used their sand toys in, a basketball area, heated pool, giant chess, a game room and a fully stocked camp store that also had slushies that were a big hit! They had a craft for the kids each day that my kids really enjoyed doing. Close to the Ho Chunk Casino and outlet mall and other Dells attractions. We opted to go into Baraboo to the grocery store, less crowded than Walmart in the Dells. All around a very nice campground that we would definitely visit again! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We are camped here as I write this. There are 'big rig' pull through sites, but they are close together and not particularly level. Several rigs, including ours, have the front wheels off the ground. The park is attractive and kid friendly with a large playground area. The Wi-Fi works great. The doggy off leash area mentioned on their web site is about 30' X 40' in size. I would be concerned about getting a big rig through the park to the big sites on a busy weekend. Some of the trees need trimming and if all the sites were full I may not have had the option to swing out around them. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Excellent family campground with weekend activities. The staff is very helpful and friendly. The campground is close to the attractions in the area. It has a nice swimming pool and hiking trails. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I was rather disappointed with this campground. It certainly doesn't rate as highly as Trailer Life and Woodall's believe. Yes, the entrance is manicured and inviting but the sites themselves are narrow and poorly cared for. We were in two different sites and both were far from level and we had wheels off the ground. It was impossible to get level with jacks. The sites were narrow and needed gravel so that you automatically stepped onto grass when you exited the motorhome. The swimming pool was nice during the week when the children were not there. At the weekend the campground was tightly packed with laundry strewn all over. Quite noisy. Good location for interstate and casino access. WiFi was consistently good. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We pulled into this campground and you can immediately see how well it is taken care of. We have a 34 ft. 5th wheel and had no problems getting through and making turns throughout the campgrounds. The check in process was easy and everyone was very friendly. We didn't use the swimming pool, but it looked very nice and again well kept. Close to the casino if you enjoy that and a lot of other nice features. Will camp here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
10's are a bit strong. We paid PA rate, $45 plus tax is the regular rate for full hookup pull through sites. This section has a bit of grade to it, with double blocks under our front jacks we still were not quite level, both front tires came off the ground. Verizon cell was marginal, no broadband but the WiFi was good. Very quiet at night here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
My family loved this place! It has clean sites, and was very family friendly. We will definitely be back! We camped here in a Motorhome.

The park is very clean and new improvements are being put in every year. This year they added a dog park and an oversized checker set for the campers to play. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Various activities are planned for the summer camping season. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park was clean with a friendly staff. The Wi-Fi was excellent, but the television reception was spotty at best. Our site was not level. In our opinion the regular rate is too high for what you get. We used Passport America. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is our type of campground. Lots of trees & friendly staff. WI-FI is free and signal was excellent. We stayed in site F-2. Temp in pool was listed at 82, but that was false advertising. Grandkids had no problem with it, but took this ol'granddad some getting used to cold water, but was nice once you got in. Definitely would stay again. Nice playground with good equipment. We were right across road from it so convenient to keep eye on grandkids. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Park was very clean, especially since the surrounding area was flooded. We were greeted as we walked up and the staff was friendly. Checkout was a breeze. It was conveniently located and they had shuttle service to the casino. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Not a particularly scenic park, but conveniently located to many attractions and pleasant owner. We broke the tongue jack on our trailer and they were kind enough to loan us the equipment needed to get our trailer on and off the truck. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Pull thru sites were long but not level side to side or front to back and were close together. Playground equip was old and in poor repair. The pool was next to the office and was handy to the W & E sites but if you wanted a full hookup you about had to drive to the pool. We stayed 4 nights - would have left sooner but they have a strict no refund policy. WiFi is available but at a cost of $6.95 a day - the highest price we have ever seen in 20,000 miles of RV travel. We paid the Passport America price of $20 a night - we would have felt really ripped off at the normal $40 rate. It was barely worth what we paid. There are many campgrounds in this area - I'm sure there are better choices. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here for one night the Sunday after the 4th of July. There were only about a dozen sites occupied. After reading the initial review of this park, we were curious as to what it was like. You do have to check in at the hotel. This situation is always a pain. We were given nothing but our receipt by the hotel clerk. We were not guided to the site. We only knew where to go, because I could see the other RVs in the RV park from where I had parked a couple hundred yards from the hotel entrance. A guy in a golf cart was at the site when we got there. He unlocked the electric box, since they padlock them when not in use. He gave us card keys for the bathhouse and side hotel doors. He also gave us a small piece of paper with the phone numbers of local shuttles and taxis. The sites and utilities are not bad. There are 49 sites of which 34 are pull-throughs. Most of these have new, round, plastic and metal picnic tables and iron pedestal BBQ grills. Most of the back-in sites do have these tables and/or grills. For the campfire lovers, all sites have large fire pits made of brick with a metal liner. The PT sites are fairly long and should be able to handle all but the longest rigs. The spacing between site is decent. The roads are asphalt and the site pads are gravel. About half a dozen sites have double, 30" wide cement strips to park on. Our back-in site was fairly level, but I can't really say how level the rest of the sites are. There is no cable TV, but all sites appear to be satellite friendly. I did not try the WI-FI, but a neighbor said that he could not connect to the internet inside his RV, but could do so outside the RV. There is a small playground and the hotel's indoor pool area is available to customers in the RV park. The bathhouse is modern and includes a couple of reasonably priced washers and dryers, I noticed that the water from the showers does go out onto the floor of the rest of the men's room. While the RV park is not "resort" quality, the entire casino complex probably is. There are none of the usual RV club discounts. Add that to the lack of cable TV and "iffy" WI-FI and this park is not worth $40/night. I would probably not return at this price. We camped here in a Motorhome.
They advertise this RV park as a "Luxury RV Park"...not quite..at $36/night they charge way to much for what they offer, and that's the rate for a Wednesday night...I'm sure the rate goes up on the weekends..You need to check in at the hotel and they will escort you to your site. Sites are narrow and we needed boards to level our rig. Bathrooms looked new and clean, laundry available for $2/load. Wi-Fi worked well. You have access to the hotel pool and there is a shuttle that comes around to pick you up. There is a small air strip adjacent to the campground. There is no shade, they have planted new trees, but those won't shade for another 10 years or so. New fire pits, barbecues and picnic tables, but still not worth $36/night. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was the nicest campground we have been to yet. Seems to be equally set up for tent campers as well as RV campers. The weekend we were here the camp ground was full but still very quiet. The sites were wonderfully shaded and private. There is enough vegetation between the sites so that you feel secluded. We have yet to be at a campground that you felt this way. The staff was very helpful. The trails were well marked and accessible. All in all it was a great weekend. We are definitely coming back We camped here in a Tent.
Very nice state park on a beautiful lake, conveniently located near all the Wisconsin Dells attractions. Close to the highway, but far enough away to not hear it from most sites. Camping is typical of Wisconsin state parks (sufficient amenities such as showers & electric, but leaning towards the rustic side). Many sites are located in a pine forest and some offer lake views. Good for most tent trailers and RVs, but some big rigs might have problems getting around some of the loops. The lake is fantastic for canoeing/kayaking-- especially into the canyoned arm just across from the boat landing. Rental boats are available at the concession stand. There's also a nice picnic area and beach. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Office/laundry/bathrooms & swimming pool are all brand new and excellent. Campground has only about 10 pull throughs in front and they are gravel and spotty grass. We saw LOTs of tent sites in the back which is quite wooded. You might be able to get a small rig back there. There was a group tenting back there with loud music but they stopped at 10pm, the quiet hour. $30 cash only was overpriced for a night's stay not using any of the campground facilities I thought. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Not a bad little place. The interior roads are fair, mostly gravel. Watch the speed bumps coming in, they are really high. The sites are grass with shared hookups. Lots of shade trees, but they need to be trimmed so us big rigs can get in a little easier. The restrooms are old, but clean, the same can be said for the pool. The laundry is in the basement and pretty dirty, we went into town to do ours. The office seems to only be open on the weekends, but the owners are on site (in the "House"), and very eager to please. We would stay here again,at $20 a night, this is a real bargain for this area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
No reservation, but was given a very lovely shaded site (back in). Staff was ultra friendly and accommodating. Didn't use any facilities. Plenty of room to walk the dog. Overall very well kept. Used just for an overnighter. Has a fishing pond that was actually being used by some guests, and a game room and a nice camp store. About 30 minutes from House on the Rock, and Taliesin. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
