We happened to stay with our local camp group during the park's Veterans Weekend for free. We were warmly greeted and efficiently checked-in. Our campsite was located in a large grassy, open area typically used by groups. Each site had 30/50A electric and a water hookup. Electric was stable and water pressure 45+. Site width was generous and you didn't feel you were camping on top of your neighbor. Wi-Fi was available but a bit finicky to connect to. Once connected it was reliable. A dump station is conveniently located for use on departure. The rest of the campground is mixed into the pine forest. The park is family friendly with a huge pond for swim and play, a rec room and a nice little ice-cream store. Prior comments about golf carts are true and it gets a bit dusty when the wind blows in your direction. It was unusual the park allowed youngsters to drive the carts around at night without any lights. At any rate, the open camping area worked great for our group and we'd come back again. - Born2Roam

This is NOT a park for transients or for a weekend outing. Most of the spaces are "seasonal" or "permanent" (they are purchased and used by part-time residents). We were lucky to be able to reserve a site that was isolated and had a great amount of space, but we got to listen to the seasonal residents having their patio/garden parties each evening.
Golf carts abound in this park, and many are driven by children or teenagers. Each evening there is a "parade of carts" with residents continuously driving around the facility with wine glass or bottle or glass in one hand while driving (usually faster than the posted 10 MPH limit AND ignoring one-way streets) until after the sun sets.
Teenage staff at the office and around the facility; never once saw any sign of adult supervision of the sites or streets.
Don't consider a stopover or a weekend here. - grandflic

In the pines, there is only sand and no grass. In the open, there is much grass but no shade. There is an airport across the road which had crop dusters flying every morning. Don't stay near the trash compactor aft of the office. It smells. Wi-Fi was very spotty. The pond is nice to swim in with lots of floating structures. Probably would stay elsewhere if in this area again. - WoodedOne

This park consists of primarily permanent sites, but has about 20 sites open for nightly use. It does not have a full-time staffed office, so the owners must be contacted by phone for check-in. There is no dump station and no sewer hookups, but staff will pump out holding tanks for a $10 fee. The owners were very friendly and helpful, as were many of the permanent residents. We would return if there was a need to stay close to Plover, WI. - mdtandem

Park looks very new, is well maintained, and has good security. Staff made great efforts to accommodate us in a site that would work with our rig. site was level and spacious. Dog exercise area was clean and big enough for our corgis to run a bit. Also, a spring-fed pond was fun for both us and the dogs to cool off.
The bathroom situation was strange. Although very clean, only one bathroom/shower was available after hours because the other was inside the pool area and locked. There are 2 other bathroom/showers available that are ADA, but you have to pay for them: not sure if this is even legal.
Downsides were some highway noise, and very bright halogen lights on the buildings that didn't allow much darkness if you're a star gazer.
We would stay again but not for a vacation: more as a stopover. - Fran in Wisconsin

As I noted in my first review of this park 2 years ago, all the sites are pull through and full hookup. Most are gravel, fairly long and wide, and appear to be level. There is no cable TV and many sites are not cable friendly. There is a nice pool and other recreational facilities. The bathrooms, showers, and laundry are modern and clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. - Jerry S

This KOA is new and very nicely laid out. All interior roads are gravel. Sites 1-5 are "premium" sites with concrete pads, all the rest are gravel pads. Our rate reflects parking in a premium spot. Sites are reasonably spacious. If one has a stationary satellite dish, trees in the regular sites may interfere. Wi-Fi was strong. No cable service. Staff were very friendly. Restrooms are modern and clean. The Park is within view of the Interstate (39) but far enough away enabling it to be quiet. We would stay here again. - kurtk

This was our first time at the park. We heard about it at an RV show. We had a lot of fun at the park. The people where nice and the owner was about as nice as you could be. He will offer you anything you need and really wants to know if you are having a good time. We talked to him the whole time we where there. There is a community fire pit to hang out at when it gets dark and can meet a whole lot of campers. My wife did go on a horse back ride and loved it. We will stay there again and do have another trip planned there this summer. It was very quiet at night when it's time to get some rest and if you like to look at the stars this is the perfect place, there are no street lights. - splicer

This campground is also a horse ranch. If you enjoy spending time with horses you can opt to take a guided horseback ride or interact with Bucky the horse. Our site was level (Site 1). With ease we were hooked up. We were pleased to find out we have Wi-Fi here and some TV channels. Sites are very spacious and there are a lot of oak trees and shade. There are a few seasonal campers here. Besides the horses there's a playground, volleyball court, horseshoes. You can drive 3 miles to the Hartman State Park where you can swim, explore and rent kayaks, canoes, paddleboards. The owner gave us sweet corn for supper two nights in a row and all staff joined us for a volleyball game. - antigua195ck

So nice to find full hookups in this part of Wisconsin. Well thought out park in the pine trees. Easy access from main road. Roads in campground are hard gravel and wide with no trees hindering access for big rigs. All 104 sites are spacious and long pull-thrus, full hookups and angled for easy access. Two RVs share hookups, but the sites are very wide so this is not an issue. Good Sam has given this park its highest ratings for a campground with no store or office and bathhouses with cinder block walls. Wifi is in the works but not available right now. Manager is working very hard to make this a 5-star facility. The dump site is far removed from the camp sites with excellent, wide, level access. This is a regional trapshooting facility so it may get noisy on the weekends, but while we were there only two people came to shoot. Town and a casino are about 8 miles away. - mhollis1

We actually did not have an opportunity to stay at this campground, but we stopped in and meet the owners and toured the park. First of all, the owners are wonderful. We meet them, talked with them for 30 minutes, and they hugged us before we left. Great attitude. Second, if you like to shoot trap, this is your campground. They hosted the state trap meet this year and have a huge WTA Shooting Facility adjacent to the campground. In fact, the campground is owned by the Wisconsin Trapshooting Association. If the sound of trap shooting is not for you, don't stay here. Lastly, There are ATV trails near by. There is on site laundry. Fire rings. Sites are 45x80. Of you are looking for a full hook up campground just south of Wisconsin Rapids, this is a great option. - JaycoJoanRick

We stay here when we are going to the agility trials at Camp Bandy. We never have had any problems with the sites, bathrooms are clean and we have always had hot water. Sites are big/roomy. People are friendly. Although no water hook ups there is water available to fill up your water tank and there is a dump station. We will be staying here again. - myztique

The sites were spacious, and the park beautiful. There wasn't a lot of privacy between the sites, but for the price, I thought it was an excellent campground and we will return again. - Cristal444

Very nice county park, on a good fishing lake. Nice little boat landing, and also a pier nearby to moor boats near the campgrounds. Pit toilets, fire rings and tables, plus elect and water at the sites. No dump station. Great cell phone signal and air card on computer signal nearby towers. River fishing down a side road near a dam too. Newly updated electrical and water lines last fall make each site very well supplied. There was even cut firewood all over for the taking, but please do not transport any wood into or out of the park, as Wisconsin is fighting the Ash borer beetle invasion. - kareninthewoods

Sites are tight due to all the beautiful trees. Overall, a very nice park with excellent/friendly staff. - DJanis

It is a very nice campground with nice playground, beach., fishing pier, couple little stores, where you can rent a canoe/boat, lot of hike/ bike trails. We had very nice wooded secluded site, but it seems like lots of them were wooded, but not secluded. There is Ice Age Trail going through that state park. This state park has couple lakes. We will be back. - basiamil

This is a beautiful and popular campground in central Wisconsin. Some of the sites have electricity but it is only rated at 15 amps. Water and a dump station are available at the park entrance. Sites 1 through 22 are available as first come/first serve and cannot be reserved. They are electric sites. We worked as campground hosts and these sites, 1-22, were generally available during the week. There is a nice swimming lake with sand beach. There is good road bicycling in the area with some off-road and paved trails in the park. You will also need to buy a Wisconsin State Park entrance sticker to put on your car, truck, or motor home. I'm rating this park somewhat low only because they don't have full hookups like we have come to expect. Otherwise for beauty, it is a 10. We really stayed here in July, 2008, but 2008 was not available as a pull-down option on the data entry form. So I'm pretending that we were here in March of 2009 only to get the park in the database. - BikerRon

It is a P/A affiliate. We pulled in a little after 2 pm to find the office closed for the day. We called the number left on the door. The person who answered said to pick out a site and see her the next day. We drove around and everything looked just too sketchy. Everything looked like permanent rigs. Little rundown. Did not find a site that looked welcoming. Decided to head on up the road. - phyllen

The total price was $17.50 a night with Passport America. The bathrooms were old and needed to be updated but were as clean as they could be. They have a minature golf course and seemed to offer lots of activities. There is a dump station but no sewer hookups at the sites. This would be good for a one night stay but I'm not sure we would want to stay longer. It is half an hour from Rudolph and the cheese factory that was interesting. It rained and there were large bodies of water all over. Most were gone by the morning. - rolling homeless
