For us, this was the perfect campground. The sites are large, level, and secluded. Lots of mature trees surround each site (you can see the other sites near you, but you have 75' of woods between most sites). There are several "double" sites (like sites 2&3 and 14&15) which are great for two units wanting to be together. There is one pull-through (site 11). Nice walking trails (down past the dam, up past the boat launch to the 3 walk-in site area). Exceptionally friendly campground host, gave us great tips and sold us excellent firewood ($5/ 1/2 wagon load). Picnic tables & fire rings for each campsite. (Site 12 has the ring on the wrong side though). Park manager walks the loop frequently. No excessive noise or inappropriate behavior during our 3-day stay here. Good electricity (no water). Single dump station. Decent cell phone coverage (Verizon and AT&T and TrackPhone). For us, this was a very nice place to relax while doing activities in Stevens Point. We'll stay here again without a doubt! (PS- we're the kind of campers that like state parks, ACOE campgrounds, etc - we tend to avoid KOA and private parks) We camped here in a Motorhome.
The previous reviewer said it all. This is a very nice park with shaded sites and clean facilities. We were pleased to have a large, level site so that we did not have to unhitch for the night. The $20 fee included electricity. It will go on our list of good places to overnight when traveling I-39. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a fine little county campground, located about 3 miles NE of Stevens Point, just off Hwy 66. Beautiful location on a 271-acre county park, just across the road from 85-acre Jordan Pond and the Plover River. Excellent fishing. It has 22 sites with electric, but no water or sewer hookups. Also has 3 tent sites on co-located island. Cost is $15.00/night, but electric costs $5.00/night. Park is open from May 1st to October 31st. Paved roads in one large circle. All sites are back-in except for one pull-through. Heavily wooded. Big rig accessible with care. Shower house is moderately clean. Our only complaint was the excessive highway noise from close-by Hwy 66. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The prior comment about 50% of the sites being seasonal were correct. The park has a tremendous amount of activities for kids, rentals of bikes, etc. All of the golf carts were rented when we were there, but the manager let us use her golf cart so that we could get a good look at the campground. She was extremely helpful. There were plenty of lots open (Saturday night). Some of the newer sites for the larger rigs were level challenged. We will stop here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a 50/50 campground -- one half for the seasonal campers, the other half for those of us who are just passing through. The seasonals have access to the better sites along the Wisconsin River while the other sites are much closer to the freeway. However, this campground is fine as a stopover. WiFi was nonexistent. Verizon 4G LTE was excellent. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Pros: clean facilities, responsive staff, nice beach along the river and friendly visitors, beautiful nature walk through the forest. Very nice camp store. Steven's Point library offers nonresident cards. Excellent Friday fish fry at the onsite restaurant. Cons: WiFi signal was too weak to be reached, even in the office. Because this is very important for us, the rating was lower. Highway noise. Minimum 8 mile drive to gas stations, grocery. Coin-operated showers (25 cents for 6 minutes). Non-shaded site plus high winds made for a hot stay. They appear to be planting shade trees to remedy this, but it was unpleasant. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park is strangely located. It's between two exits so it's about 5-6 miles off the interstate even tho it's located next to the interstate which makes it rather noisy. The access road into and out of the park requires a u-turn in the restaurant parking lot. Fortunately, the restaurant was closed so the turn was easy but if cars had been in the parking lot, it would have been tricky. The site was large and level. Wi-Fi ok although I never understand why the staff doesn't automatically give new arrivals the password without being asked. Now the dump station: it is located on a road that requires a turn around trees. Was not so easy for a 45 footer. Additionally, there are low hanging trees next to dump so that they drag on top of the rig. There is only one dump for a large number of sites. What were they thinking??? The 2 PM check out time is generous. Sentryworld golf is about 9 miles away and is a nice course in great condition with a unique flower filled 16th hole. If necessary, would stay again in a motorcoach but it's inconvenient and the dump station access could be trouble if it was crowded. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Large sites and lots of activities...especially for the kids. The managers and staff are friendly and very helpful...making sure their guests are satisfied with everything. Bathrooms and common areas are kept clean. I would definitely recommend River's Edge Campground! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a decent campground, but they charge for everything, except the pool use. My kids went to take a shower and came back asking for change as the showers cost money. Since it is close to the river, the DNR would not allow the owners to have any sewer to the campground, so there are no full hook-ups. Even the seasonals have to use the honey wagon. They gave us a note on check-in telling us the water was not drinkable; at least they told us, I guess. There is a small free play area, but they charge to use the larger one. Pool is OK and fits the need for the kids. Our site was a double length pull-through and was plenty wide for us too. Sites were all very level and the campground was pretty clean and reasonably well maintained. Most of the seaosonals were in reasonably good shape too. We may stay again. It is a bit tricky to get to the campground from the highway, but roads are amply wide enough for the largest of rigs. We camped here in a Motorhome.
