10 Parks near Algoma, Wisconsin
Jul 2016 - $34.00
Extremely friendly owner. This is nothing fancy, and most of the people here have boats and are here for the fishing...lots of seasonals. We had a shady back-in with W&E. The Wifi was excellent. The campground is really close to the lovely town of Algoma. There's lots of grass and I got permission to let my dog play frisbee in the field. - mom2wildlife

Wanted a resort that would have fish freezing service available as we were going out on a charter for salmon, and this resort filled that need. The owner was friendly and the facilities were clean. Had full hookup. It is mostly a seasonal campground and most residents are fishermen with Lake Michigan size boats which I enjoyed looking at. Would stay again. - schemmy

The owner/manager was very nice. The showers were very clean and well maintained. We asked for a pull-thru, but this RV park has none. We got Wi-Fi signal at our site. This park's entrance is on the main road, so we did not have to drive a long way out to get to it. We had water and electric hookup only. Used their dump station upon leaving. - mountainmaury

The new owners are friendly and very accommodating. Due to rain we asked to stay 2 additional nights. Although they were booked, our request was accommodated. Level gravel sites with grass for the picnic table. Our favorite part were the LARGE grassy fields where the dogs could get exercise and roll around. - Boomerific
Jul 2016 - $39.00
Our daily rate of $39.00 was based on a 7 day stay with a Good Sam discount, pretty pricey! As others have mentioned, this is an old tired KOA. All interior roads are dirt. Spaces are dirt and weeds. Fire rings are wheel hubs sunk in the ground with no grates. Pool was nice but chilly for a heated pool. WiFi was not usable from your site. No cable TV but you can pick up several clear over the air stations.
Town itself is just OK, not much to do. ShopKo directly across the street, good prices. This is a gateway to Door County. We spent a day touring there... Unless you really like overpriced antique shops, eateries and numerous tourist traps along with hundreds of overpriced hotels, save your time and money. We were pretty disappointed.
We have paid less in many campgrounds and gotten considerably better facilities etc. This park is way overpriced having dirt roads and parking pads, no accessible WiFi from your site and no cable TV. Combine that with the disillusioning Door County trip and we probably won't return. Sorry... - AlaskaJack

This park needs to be updated. It looks like and old KOA from the 70's or 80's that's never been updated. Not enough 50 amp spots lots of long term residence. The trees are over grown and touched the top of our rv. They advertise a heated pool but the cover on the pool looked like it had not been removed all summer with lots of debris on top. The mini golf was run down and very old. The playground had broken toys. The common area had really old nasty musty furniture and inoperable video games. There was a big black dog living in the office area and dog hair covering the carpet. The worst part was the mean employees that live in the park. There is a grumpy old lady and her daughter working here and they like to bully kids. They live right across from the play ground and are down right mean! They like to yell and shout at people instead of talking in a kind voice. They watch out their window and bullied our boys (ages 10 and 13) right after I walked away. This is definitely not a family friendly park. It has a lot of potential, but needs some major updating and cleaning along with friendlier employees. I would not stay here again. - Arnold4adventure

This campground is not easy to maneuver through. The roads are extremely narrow and have a LOT of trees close to the roads and hanging over the road. We unfortunately pulled off a back corner of our travel trailer brushing against a tree as we were trying to swing it wide to turn down the street to our sites. The turns are very tight. The person (owner?) in the office was extremely rude to a few people in our group. We had 6 sites total and had to cancel 1 site a few days prior due to illness and this person moved one of the other families into the site that was cancelled, but that family was not able to get their travel trailer on that site so had to go back to their original site and informed the office of this change--the person said we could use the site that was cancelled if needed since it is between others in our group and when we did the next morning the person in the office (owner?) was rude about it and said no one ever said we could use it. The campground was not full. - Tina o

I agree with previous comments. Positives: Nice restaurant and bar with good food and drink at cheap prices. Negatives: Teenage summer help running the place. A small pool with 100's of kids and adults running, jumping and throwing each other in. An accident waiting to happen with no supervision. Drive carefully with kids flying around on bikes and not paying attention. Very inconsiderate campers with dogs running loose. Naturally they 'do their business' on your site and won't clean it up when told. It might be nice during the week, but I would never go back there on a weekend. - russ1102

Park is average. Access to some of the amenities is restricted because of the HUGE numbers of children using those amenities. Not a park for older (non-children) folks, during peak season. New restroom facilities are topnotch/ clean. Pull-through sites are very long, grass and gravel, and level, extremely wide by our standards, though the park only has a handful. Not an overly friendly park to big rigs. More suitable to smaller trailers, small 5th wheels, tents. Fortunately we had a pull-through at the far end so away from the masses of people. WiFi is bad, worked for a couple of days then went to nowhereland fast. Pool(s) are overwhelmed by kids (many kids!) making it not pleasant for childless and older folks to enjoy. They have a waterpark theme (slides, etc.) and a very strict control system for accessing (wristband). On the other hand, today we came back to the park and there were a TON of cars (non-registered visitors) using the pool(s). It was a madhouse. Too many visitors to their facilities that it overwhelms their amenities. Fortunately where we parked, it WAS quiet, (away from the pool). The dumpsters tend to get full fast and smell bad quickly. Those parked next to them, can expect tons of flies. Park staff is young/teens and not too friendly. Saw a couple of younger folks mowing, but basically not very visible. When we checked in, the teenager told us the wrong way to enter our site, we had to make another loop to get righted. We probably wouldn't come back again, only because we're not in favor of large groups camping together, etc. - ErinandCorbin

This is a very nice campground with full services and then some -- including a nice store with plenty of supplies, swimming pool, restaurant, bar, and more. The folks running this place are very customer service oriented. Our biggest problem, like so many other campgrounds, is that we state we need good internet because we are travel writers. They tried to accommodate us; however, even then, it works, but, mostly very poorly, and sometimes not at all. Only other problem was this morning when their lawn folks came in - no problem -- would expect them to keep the grounds nice. But for whatever reason, they kept utilizing our camping spot as a turnaround zone, over, and over, and over. Though we were trying to work, we finally left the campground, as it became sooooooooo annoying. Nothing about "quietwoods" with those guys. - Legends Of America

We stayed under an Encore discount. This is a nice large park with primarily RV permanent sites, which are well maintained. Dirt roads, but no dust was thrown. Busy on the weekends, but quiet during the week. The staff were very nice and helpful. Location is excellent for visiting Sturgeon Bay. Located mid Door County. Easy travel north to Washington Island and south to Green Bay. Verizon varied. Unable to get satellite. FHU 50 amp site. - Deniselg53

We stayed on Labor Day weekend and it was very busy on Sunday and everyone left by Monday noon. There is a nice pool and lots for kids to do. The place was well kept and clean. They loaded us an extension cord without charge. WiFi was just OK/slow if we sat outside in direct site of the antenna. - suerover

1) Well maintained restrooms.
2) I'll get back to you when I can come up with more positive observations!
1) Their advertisements state, "Overlooking Sturgeon Bay." Snort!!! The ability to see Sturgeon Bay is relegated to about 11 sites in the Park Place section, all of which are reserved for seasonal customers.
2) Their advertisements state, "WiFi available." Snort!!! Been here 3 days and still awaiting one WiFi signal!
3) Gosh....for $40.00 you'd think they could scrounge up a cable provider and run a cable throughout the park....you'd think! BUT, you know that anyhow as they don't mention cable hookups in any advertisements.
4) There are no pull through sites reserved for the transit/traveling customer - we never found one. This park is decidedly focused on seasonal residents and almost all of them are back ins!! The transit sites are fairly close together - meaning you can extend your slides and not fear being right on top of your neighbor but you will be seeing them setting at their dining table.
This park mimics other Encore sites we've stayed in....little attention paid to cleaning up the sites between checkouts and check-ins (our fire pit was full of empty glass bottles)....focused on seasonal customers....as far as "value received," about 30% markup over comparable parks.
Doubt if we'll stay here again, unless a true emergency forces us to have to stay!! - Jimrodenkirch

Employeees are friendly and helpful. We have been camping here on this same weekend for 4 years and always have a good time. Swimming pools are nice and they have horseshoes, shuffleboard, mini golf, a DJ at night and kids activities. The bathrooms and building structures need updating. They are starting to get that runned down condition. - carmenhass

Very kid friendly. There was a beach and water within walking distance and the rest of the Dells was convenient to get to from here. We were camped in an open field that was easier to get into than the areas with trees. We did not have sewer and their dump is hard to get to. - R&G

The site is kid friendly with nice pools and play areas. The campground is too far south for most of the stuff to see in Door County. We should have stayed near Fish Creek because it was an hour drive each way to get somewhere because the site is in the country. For adults, the sites can be too small for backing a popup. I had to find the 3rd site to be able to get into the site. The trees are close, which made parking an issue. The bathrooms near the pool were not clean and the shower drain backed up in both the men and women bathrooms. - Michael from Illinois

Lovely, serene setting with mostly level sites, but an older campground created when RVs were much smaller. Not "big rig" friendly at all. Roads are narrow with lots of overhanging branches that make navigation in a large RV very difficult. No sewer or 50 amp service. Not all sites have even 30 amp service. Summer weekends are Very busy. Checkout time is 3:00. If you have a big rig, you might as well wait til Sunday at 3:00 to come in to find one of a few spots that you can navigate to and use.
Sadly, they do not take reservations. Weekends fill up fast. Campground choices near Green Bay are extremely limited, so we have camped there due to no better choice. - jpainter01

Plenty of hiking trails and several ways to get down to the beach on Green Bay. We got the bikes down and headed down the paved trail to find it joins with paved county roads. Great place to visit Green Bay from and not far from the Shrine of Good Help which is a truly spiritual experience. Contrary to previous posters had no problem with 30 ft RV with a tow vehicle and big turning radius. - stetwood

Concrete pads for RVs, separate tent area. Some sites not suitable for larger rigs: too short, no pull-throughs. Shaded sites but campground very open, no barriers between sites. Good for stopover. Some noise from nearby highway. Good for launching boat into Green Bay. Laundry also available. Flush toilets, fire rings. Not too far from Green Bay or good stopover on way to Door County. 20 or 30 amp sites. Some water hookups very far. - Sparky6238

County park accepts only Wisconsin checks or cash which you deposit in a slot after choosing your site. Treed campground with lots of room between sites. Managed to peek at Dish satellite through tree branches. Large boat launch and pier with gravel swim beach. Green Bay was green when we were there so we didn't swim, but did kayak. Campground sits atop Niagara Escarpment for some interesting geology. - Appleknocker

I included the $10 daily entrance fee in the total amount for the nightly rate. This is a very nice camping area, with large sites in the woods. It was very quiet when we were there, even though it is the summer season. There is only electric for service, so we wouldn't use it for long, but for three days it was fine. You can fill your rig with water at the dump area near the front gate. We went to Green Bay and up into the Door Peninsula while here. We were happy to have a strong Verizon signal. We would come here again. - dbcordello

The road within the CG area of this park is not for a large RV & a driver who has a weak stomach for tight places. Anything over 35' is going to be challenging getting around the one way road. Site wise many are very long & very roomy. Well worth the effort of getting in. - Veebyes

We stayed here while traveling to Wisconsin to visit our son and his family. This is a very nice park. The staff was friendly and the facilities were very well maintained. We had hardly parked on our site when the host came by and said if we needed anything to let him know. The site we had was large, level, and had recently had new gravel put on it. The adjacent town of Sturgeon Bay was a very nice place to visit. We would definitely return to this park if in the area again. - WV_Retired

We stayed here during the week and it was fairly quiet. The check-in process was extremely slow. The young kids at check-in could have been more knowledgeable about things at the park and in the area. They did offer a waterpark and a man made pond for swimming. The did have alot of things at the park to do. Soccer, basketball, jumpy pillow, bike and skateboard area. The kids had a great time. We stayed at a wooded site just behind the office, it was fairly private quiet and not far from the bathhouse. They have many seasonal and you could not see or hear them from the area we were at. You would not know this park was near as big as it was without going and walking around. We will most likely be back. The kids enjoyed playing BINGO. - PackerFanRick

The park is a full service park with one exception, no sewer at site. Two dump sites located in park and a pump service will come to your site for $22 per dump.
The sites are both pull thru and back in with water and 30/50A, packed earth, level (for the most part), tree-lined and spacious between sites with picnic table and fire ring. I was able to park my 40' Class A towing an 18' trailer connected with additional room front and rear. The roadways within the park are a mixture of packed earth, gravel and pavement.
Office staff is very friendly. Consisted mostly of teenagers working a summer job. I suspect this because the park has a large water slide pool with a shallow kiddie pool, a separate adult pool located by the office, a small pond/beach that you can swim in, a separate little pond for catch and release fishing, outdoor playground with climbing apparatus, miniature golf, an enclosed basketball netted area, a large air bag that is used like a large trampoline and a hiking trail.
When a guest checks in, 5 park bands are provided to identify registered guests. Additional bands can be purchased. The office is also the store which appears stocked with incidental items for camping and for your camper. Cold non-alcoholic beverages and snacks sold also.
The park is quiet. With all of the kid-related amenities, it was quiet. Laundry and bath house was a quick walk from my site at site 59. I was parked as though I was deep in the forest preventing me from extending my awning, but the area for picnicing and fire ring was open and clear of trees and other landscaping. The trees buffer your camp site from your neighbors. - kihei7

Have been camping here for 3 years now, absolutely love it! The glow rides, the water park our daughter loves! Staff is friendly and helpful, sites are big enough (we camp in the pull-throughs). Look forward to spring so we start camping here again!! Highly recommended! - Aft
