Unless you have kids go somewhere else. This is truly a park oriented to and for kids.
If you have a larger RV, they have lot's of low hanging trees, but they will trim the limbs. - JAD52

We stayed during Memorial Day weekend. After dropping $174, I was shocked to find out we needed to pay more for the kids to use the activities there. Half the staff is encountered seemed put out by waiting on me. The bathrooms were filthy. The sites are NOT spacious. You're right on top of each other. - Tetz

This is a very nice campground with many activities for families with kids. The gravel/dirt/grass sites are spacious and you don't feel squished in. Some of the tree branches need to be trimmed but it was basically maneuverable with our 37' motorhome. Our kids' families stayed in the cabins very close by. They were nice and luckily had a/c. It was very hot and humid. The amenities included a snack bar, a nice pool, a pond and games and go karts, playground, etc. They had a man come in on Sat. and gave a really cool talk about reptiles showing many different varieties. Very interesting. Staff was friendly and we all had a good time at nearby Circus World and at the campground. There is a pizza buffet nearby. They also have a nice dog park area very close to the campsites. We would definitely stay here again. - slj

What the other reviews said is true, but if you are not a resident of WI, or dont have a state park sticker you'll have to pay extra for it.
Value is just OK at $44 a night which is what we paid having to get a sticker.
We just stayed overnight, for a longer stay it would be better.
Lots of low hanging branches you'll have to dodge while driving in and the sites are tight for larger rigs.
Pluses are it's very nice once you get in, and quiet. - konehd

Easy to get to and nice looking park. There are miles of hiking and biking trails. Roads are blacktop but have to watch for low hanging trees. We stayed in the Cliffwood Campground. Sites are deep, level and well spaced. Lots of vegetation between our site and adjacent sites. Did not use the restrooms. The dump station was easy to get in and out of with one dump site and one fresh water fill point. Did not use the beach but there is one and boat and kayak rentals. Hiking trails were well maintained. Would have rated higher but had to watch for low branches go to campsite and again leaving. - Blu1e

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 - PLCPREZ

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. - big greg

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. - kathiecarlson

Lets start out with the sites. They are large for the most part. Though with that none of the sites we looked at had gravel pads and were all grass. The site we stayed on at one point must have had a gravel pad but has been overgrown at this point. Also, a lot of the sites are seasonal so you should expect that. Still this is one of the quietest places I have stayed at in all of my stays.
They do promote a green campground so don't expect a lot of things you might see at other campgrounds. They have a catch an release fishing pond but no swimming area. They have converted an old barn into a game room. The games were limited and some are free and others you have to pay for. As part of the green campground they also do not offer anything in the bathroom to dry your hands, no air dryer or paper towels. Not sure if this is part of the green idea but the fire pit was just some loose rocks in a circle with a mud ring around it. It worked, but you couldn't get very close to roast the mallows without stepping into mud.
It is also very close to Devils Lake which does fill up and this would be a close alternative. They offer wifi but only near the campstore. The staff was friendly and the store was stocked with the things we wanted which was a couple sodas. We didn't have any issues with the power, water, or sewer. Though if you don't get a sewer site, the dump station is in a grassy area almost hidden. Overall it was just what we wanted for the weekend and that was some quiet family time and still got to enjoy a nice hike at Devils Lake. - Schultefam

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. - villager04

It's a state park so facilities (clean bathrooms/showers, etc.,) need to be taken into consideration. We stayed in the Northern Lights campground and had a spacious site with electricity that we booked 11 months in advance as we were here over the bust Fourth of July weekend. So much to offer at this park: swimming, fishing, hiking, paddle boarding, boating. No reason to be bored here. - EllenT

We stayed in the Quartzite campground, mostly because we read that it was more accessible for big rigs. The drive in was a little unnerving--lots of trees and very few signs to reassure you that are went the right way. But, we did and pulled in to the parking area for camper registration. It was 2pm on a Sunday (Father's Day) and while we expected the park to be busy we thought most people would be leaving, not arriving. It was packed and the line in the building to check in wound around the small space. Even so, the check-in process was fairly quick and painless.
To get to Quartzite campground you actually leave the park briefly, but even with a big rig is wasn't bad. Our site, #99, was a bit of a challenge. Most of the sites have gravel that has been overgrown with grass. Ours had a slope on either side of the narrow pad, so getting as close to centered was important. We did the best we could, but had difficulty leveling and ended up tilted downhill on the door side. We have an additional step we use and even with that we had a large step down since the entire site slanted down from the pad. Many of the sites have this same problem, but there are some a little flatter. Some others slant up or down along the pad, which would make leveling difficult as well.
The campground is very open, but you aren't right next to people and some trees are scattered around. The 50 amp hookup worked without any issues. There are a couple composting toilets, as well as a main bath house. The showers were OK for a state park, but we didn't use them. There are water fountains and faucets in a few places, but you'll need a container to use them; there is no water at the sites. They say they are completely full every weekend, so plan in advance or arrive very early on Friday morning.
We had no AT&T signal, but our Verizon had 2 bars and LTE without our booster. I will note that even in Baraboo there was little to no AT&T signal. - Uno Mas

We were in site #171. It was an open area with only 3 other campers while we were there. We had originally booked site #210, but it wasn't a good site so we were able to switch. Most of the sites aren't very level so we had a bit of trouble getting it to level. However, we loved the large grassy area that our dog was able to rest in without laying in gravel or dirt. It is a beautiful park. My husband caught quite a few fish so he was happy. We left the Thursday before Memorial Day and I'm sure it will be full up for the weekend. We enjoyed the relatively few people in our section of the campground. We stayed in the Northern Lights loop. Bathrooms and private showers were spotlessly clean. We would stay again. - Southbar

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. - wmah

Great campground, a little noisy durine a weekend long family reunion but otherwise it was quiet during the week. Lots to do for kids and the pool was nice. Easy access to the Dells and local shopping. Only about a mile from the local Indian casino as well. - Campers4Life2016

We stayed here in a travel trailer. Our site had electric/water/sewer and free wifi. The site itself felt a little tight only because next to us one night was a really big rig. We are talking 200K+ motor home. I think its size just really made our site seem small. In all seriousness the site was fairly level. The kid park was large and had stuff for all ages including swings, playground equipment, volleyball court, and basketball court. In the park was a nice shelter if you were camping with a group and wanted to eat together. The staff was friendly and welcoming. Every time we stopped in the camp store they were welcoming. Check in was easy as walking in and letting them know who we were. They also have other things to do on site like giant chess, giant checkers, ladder ball, and a disc golf course. We played the disc golf course twice and it was pretty fun. They also have a game room in the camp store that has board games to play, carpet ball, a tv with a dvd player, and books to read. They have a couple nature trails on site. If you are into golf the campground is right next to a golf course. If you want to gamble you only have to go less than a mile to be at a casino. The bathrooms/showers were clean and the water was warm. I mentioned the camp store which has a fair amount of items in it. From camping gear to toys, to food items.
Our site also had nice tree coverage and was in the shade most of the day. Our neighbors on one side were very friendly and shared a fair amount of friendly advice. The campground was quiet all weekend as far as noise goes.
Overall it was a pleasant stay. - Schultefam

It's an open park with few amenities. Sat worked well as no shade trees near. No cable and Wi-Fi was a joke. Check in is at the casino and staff seemed just bothered by it. Didn't go back in the casino (we don't smoke and don't care about gambling). Over all it was a place to set up for a couple nights. - TPDBOB8687

We were here Labor Day weekend. We enjoyed our stay. The staff was very friendly and very helpful. Sites were spacious sunny and open. Pad was gravel and had a fire ring and picnic table. We plan on going back before the end of the season. - geezer1945

We stayed here in July of 2013 and my review back then describes the physical set up of the park along with the facilities and amenities. The negatives remain: check in at hotel, overpriced for a casino RV park, no cable TV, poor WIFI, bathroom floors flood when someone showers, etc. There are antenna channels from Madison and most sites are satellite friendly. Their website calls this a "luxury? park. In whose opinion? The sites and hook ups are the only positives. I still don't see any recycling. - Jerry S
Aug 2016 - $129.00
What a zoo this place is. The pool and hot tub were totally occupied and full of kids. I understand it's children oriented, so if you are adults with no kids, stay away.
No cable and the WiFi Is worthless. The sites are very crowded. At night there were a lot of noisy parties going on into the middle of the night. Not for us, but others may like it.
Avoid the Red Carpet scam. It was all that was left. Was $129.00 per night and all you got were two free drinks, free putt putt on a mini course full of mud that looks like it hasn't been used in years. Fool me once, shame on you... - Bobk816
Jul 2016 - $59.00
Kind of expensive even with the Passport America discount. Kind of geared towards families with small children. We stayed for a couple of days during the week. Very convenient to the Dells attractions downtown. Never tried the WiFi, but my Verizon MiFi had plenty of bars and worked great for my Internet needs. Our site was unlevel and had I not had an auto-level would have requested another site! A tree branch kept me from trying to raise my TV antenna, but I wasn't here to watch TV anyways, no way I could get satellite access with the tree cover at my site. I was very careful and had no issues getting into my spot, but this campground is not really big rig friendly. Narrow roads and tree branches barely taller than 13'6" in many spots. - dmkimm

We camped here with our grandkids about two years ago. We returned with the them again and found the campground to be slightly older and in need of repair. Specifically the restrooms are showing their age and, in my opinion they need a complete redo. On the plus side the sites are spaced out nicely and all utilites worked fine. Previously there were a lot of kid oriented games and activities, not so much this time. The main pool was fine the kiddie pool was not open when we arrived and when they did open the area the water was much too cold. - ANDYO1

Well-maintained, quiet park; catering to the over-55 age group and their pets. Roomy, gravel sites. Nice, clean laundry room. Open grassy areas and a nature trail for dogs and their owners. Close to Wal-Mart and the Dells, yet has a quiet country atmosphere. We would definitely stay here again if in the area. - FranM

We stayed for an overnight in a 39'coach with toad. Very close to I-94/90 with easy access but no road noise. Very friendly owners who were easy to get along with even though we arrived about 9PM. They directed us straight to the site and just told us to come to the office in the morning and pay. Our site was fairly level and a tree blocked our satellite. However, lots of channels on TV. Some sites were less level. Decent spacing, but not great. Full hookups and the water tasted fine. Good ATT and Verizon reception. This location advertises as an adult park, with no amenities for the kids. Kids are expected to be kept on a tight leash and they would just as soon campers with kids look to the Yogi Bear type parks which are in abundance in the area. Works for me! Adult does not mean get crazy wild and drunk. Very well maintained. I watched the owner mow the same area 3 times, and it didn't need mowing to begin with. We will definitely visit again and would gladly utilize this for either a base for local exploration or as an overnight. - CharlieS

A very nice quiet park. Highly recommend for staying in the area. Staff was very nice and helpful. Very peaceful and quiet! The let us wash our rig while we were there and that was very nice. Will definitely come back again! I did not try the WiFi, as my Verizon MiFi had great speeds while here. I was also able to get a great satellite signal. - dmkimm
