Owners on site every day and super friendly, great shade, on-site grill with good grub, huge selection of snacks/rv supplies/live bait, easy 1 mile walk/bike to town,wi-fi solid,pool smaller for campground size, but clean, plenty of chairs, ton of activities for kids, huge game room with a/c. One of the best we have seen in 4 mo. of full-timing…huge game room. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
If you like to camp under high-canopied trees in a well-maintained RV park, this is the place for you. Although some interior roads are on the narrow side, we navigated in a 40 foot motorhome without problem. Very friendly staff made us feel welcome. Park is close enough to Wisconsin Dells to make a day trip, but far enough away to avoid crowds. Montello is a very enjoyable, small town: so no need to drive to the Dells! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Pleasant campground with tight but maneuverable interior roads. We couldn't level in the first pull-through site we were assigned without lifting the rear wheels off the ground. Our second site worked out fine. Nicely wooded with nice grassy areas. Wi-Fi and cable TV were good. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The pull-thru site was nice. The only problem we saw with our site was tree location when pulling straight out, you wouldn't have been able to make the turn, but we were able to back straight up and go down a different road. Unfortunately it rained that weekend, so we didn't do a whole lot, but on a positive note the soil was sandy, so we didn't have any puddles of water or mud. Would camp here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We picked this campground because of the pool and boat launch. The pool is great even though some of the young children using it need more supervision for safety reasons. The boat launch is 3.5 miles down the road but they do have small docks you can use closer to the campground. The other reason for the low rating is the small sites, dirt sites and roads leave everything very dirty, and this is the noisiest campground we have ever stayed in. I am not sure if the noise was coming from the campground or a nearby neighbor because it was too late to go out and investigate. Also some of the clientele is undesirable because of poor language and again not supervising children. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed at the campground over 4th of July weekend for the first time. Although the campground was nearly filled to capacity, we were amazed at how quiet it was. The campground is a little older than some in the area, but it is very well maintained. Our kids loved the pool and playground. The owners really do enforce quiet time and do their best to make sure that Kilby Lake remains family friendly. We had a disturbing neighbor that moved in over the weekend that was drunk and throwing around foul language (loud enough surrounding sides could hear). The neighbor received one warning and then was evicted from the campground; we were very appreciative. We will definitely be back again. We camped here in a Tent.
It is picturesque with greenery and wild berries but not big rig friendly. There are narrow sites and lots of mature trees that inhibit satellite reception. The owners were friendly and strictly enforced quiet time. No sewer hookups were available when we were there (full hookups limited to permanent units), just a small 250 gallon drop tank that had to be pumped three times. Our friends who stayed there in a pop-up at the same time reported clean showers and restrooms but we did not use them. The sandy terrain and very high iron water that left rust everywhere. We had AT&T phone which had no reception. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Overall a very nice campground. The sites are big and most provide lots of privacy. The majority of the campground is very wooded except for a large center play area with playground equipment, a shelter and game room. We played a quick game of football within this area. There are quite a few seasonal sites, but they are well kept and everyone is friendly. The full hookup sites have a holding tank for sewer. Mine overflowed a little when I dumped before leaving. So, I had to use the dump station to finish. I'm not sure the sewer hookup is worth the extra $3 per night. Also, the interior roads are mostly sand, so don't plan on doing any biking. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Well maintained, secluded sites, a great clean pool and super friendly staff are the perks at Kilby Lake Campground. The kids had a ball, and the bathrooms and showers were fantastic. We love Kilby Lake and will be back. We camped here in a Tent.
Overall we are not big fans of private campgrounds (as opposed to state or county parks), but Kilby Lake is one we'd return to. The pool and hot tub were nice, and the mini golf course was fun. They had a lot of fun activities for the children. The best part though were the sites. Large open grassy sites, yet with trees and underbrush separating you from your neighbor so you didn't feel you're on top of one another. The staff was very friendly, and escorted us to our site. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Some of the biggest camp sites I've ever seen. Excellent privacy with trees and brush between sites. Nice amenities but we didn't use most. Staff seemed friendly and helpful. Good relaxing stay. Lots of bugs, but that's unavoidable. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Campground is in a forest of oak trees near a small lake - a nice setting. There is much to do for families - swimming, fishing, boating, game room & playground, and a petting zoo and bird sanctuary. There is also a small store in the campground office. The showers and toilets were immaculate. It is a lovely setting, but some campers don't respect quiet time hours, and the staff does not enforce them. This made our stay unpleasant. There should be better enforcement of the campground regulations. We camped here in a camper.

We found this park to be clean and the staff friendly, with the exception of a female staff person who was telling the children at the pool not to keep jumping in because it drops the water level of the pool. The Saturday night owl calling was neat-for adults as well as children. Some sights by the park had a cement slab to park on which was nice and level and also cut down on dirt/sand, yet was surrounded by trees. We would stay there again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice campground, great for families. Facilities are clean and well maintained. I would give this campground a 10, except that I found the owners to be a bit anal about noise after quiet hour. I appreciate quiet hours as do all campers, but in this campground I guess just opening and closing the door to your trailer after quiet hour is frowned upon! We camped here in a camper.
We stayed here for 3 days and 4 nights while visiting friends in the area. Our rig is a 40 footer so the sites and others close by were really tight getting in and out. All utilities worked ok, but the water pressure was a little iffy at times. Plenty of activities for the kids in the form of a nice pool, basketball court, etc. At night, the bugs can be very annoying so bring the spray. Would consider another stay if nothing else was available. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Camped here in pup. Fathers day weekend and was busy. Restrooms were spotless and well taken care of our whole stay Wednesday through Sunday. Wednesday was free if you stayed x amount of time (nice savings). The golf carts roaming around can be annoying, but other wise great CG. The kids liked the pool and jumping pillow, and have canoed lake Puckaway right down the street. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Lake Arrowhead never disappoints. The bathrooms and showers are always clean, and the pools are nice and large. The staff is friendly and sites are well kept. We will be back again next year for sure. We camped here in a Tent.
This park was one of our favorites so far on our year long trip across the U.S. We're usually boondockers, but when we need to shower, do laundry, etc., we try to find places as posh as Lake Arrowhead. Not only was this resort clean and top-notch, but the facilities were some of the best we've seen (big professional washer & dryers). It was big and nice but it still felt like "real camping" because it's in the trees (but many spots still open enough to get satellite--we did). Plus, they have an ongoing FREE WEDNESDAYS program where if you stay there midweek for at least two days, you get Wednesday free! Many long-term people are there but they keep their trailers tidy and fun looking. It's a great place that we'd stop at again if we were in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We've come here 1 or 2 times a year for the last 5 or so years. We really enjoy this campground. The owners and their staff are always very nice, and they are always helpful. The whole resort is always kept clean and neat. They are pet friendly as long as the rules are followed. Pets are to be leashed and you must clean up after your pet immediately. I appreciate this so much as I don't bring a pet, though several in our group do. The pool is well maintained and a pleasure to use on those hot July days. The mini golf is our favorite challenge. The owners have been very busy adding some GREAT playground equipment, as well as new rafts to play on in the pond and adding a GREAT new snack area. You will love this campground. Give them a try. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I went camping with some friends to Wilderness Campground because one weekend a year they give away sites for those who serve, or have served, in the military. I couldn't put a 0 for the nightly rate, but the whole weekend was free. It's an excellent campground, with plenty of sunny and shaded sites. A lot of the sites are permanent, but very well maintained. Bathrooms and showers are very clean. They completely redesigned the main office/grocery area, and even have a Friday Night Fish Fry. We will definitely be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped here on the last weekend of the season. It seems the majority of the sites are rented to seasonal campers, but there is an area for the non-seasonal campers. Our site had 30 amp electric and water, which seems to be the norm for non-seasonal campers. There is tree cover, so keep that in mind, if you rely on satellite reception. As mentioned earlier, we were here on the last weekend of the season, so there were several seasonal campers here winterizing their trailers, but not many non-seasonal campers. The evenings were relatively quite and there were several campfires throughout the park, in the provided campfire pits at each site. The campground appears to be well run and very clean. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camp here over the 4th of July and it was a packed campground. Even though there were so many campers the owners took outstanding care of the place. I made a last minute reservation and arrived at 10PM on Thurs. The owner came to the front after hours for me (without my asking him to) and showed me to my site. There was a fireworks show, good for a campground and you could tell a lot of effort was put in. Sat night was a live DJ dance. Everyone had a good time. Trash pickup went on time everyday. My kids stayed in the lake but the pool looked in good condition. I would recommend this campground to anyone and I know we will return. Look at the map on the website and try to get a lake side site opposite of the beach for a great view and lots of room. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Normally I camp in more secluded campgrounds, and I was a little in shock with how non-secluded the sites were. Even though it was a holiday weekend, it was not too loud. They did seem to be having septic issues- the restrooms and laundry facilities were closed several times while they pumped the system out We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
We camped here over the Memorial weekend. Although the campground was full you didn't feel crowded. Lots of stuff for the kids to do. Swimming pool, small lake with a beach. Older campground but well maintained. Didn't use the showers but they looked like your average campground shower and they were clean. Very friendly people. They do enforce the rules which was nice. Amish stores are close buy, terrific bakery goods. We would camp here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
