38 RV Parks near Baraboo, Wisconsin

One of the worst campgrounds I've been to. We chose Baraboo Hills because the website makes it look amazing. Ton of amenities that include pool, swim pond, park, jumping pillow, etc. However, upon our arrival the first thing we noticed was everything is very old and dingy. Then moving on to our site I was shocked at the condition of it. It was mostly gravel with the exception of a small grass area that was full of weeds. The kicker came when we found out you had to purchase 25.00 wristbands in order to use the jumping pillow and a few other amenities. We checked out the swim pond and it was a funny color blue so we never allowed our kids to go in it. The pool area looked clean but needed updating as far as the chairs went. We spent very little time of our 4 day stay in the campground. Decided to keep our days filled in the Dells. I understand why there are no refunds after paying full amount to reserve site, we would have left immediately if we hadn't already paid over 200.00. Will never visit this campground again. - CindyR123

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

We stayed here from Sunday through Friday at the end of June. Booked in December and got the only site available. Campsite we had was a "shared" campsite, so parking was kind of tight for our tow vehicles, but the campers fit in well together. Other camper was there for only a couple days, but sites were designed so that we really weren't on top of each other. The campground does have single sites available throughout.
Dump station and water fill station were very nice. Ranger drove through often. Quiet and peaceful, some highway noise can be heard on some sites, but very distant. There can be low hanging trees on the drive into the campground. - bloomis

The layout of the campground is such that the restroom/shower buildings are easily accessible from your campsite, but not immediately adjacent. One restroom/shower building serves about 15 campsites. They have 2 each 2 shower stalls, sinks, and toilets. Push button/auto shut off showers so- you gotta keep pushing to get more water. We've camped here 8 seasons now [family reunion getaway occupying 7 sites] and sad this this year they removed the paper towels [only air dryers] as we used them to clean up our area around the sinks when done. Now they stay messy longer as they're cleaned only once per day. Each stall is private with locking door and large enough to use to dry off. There is 1 hook on the inside of door but now where else [wish there were more] also there is a long bench just outside of the shower stalls which is handy but no shelves for your stuff. Reasonably priced park considering it's near the tourist vacation destination area.. All campsites have gravel pads but the interior roadways are paved. Sites are very roomy with lots of vegetation between sites for privacy and all among many trees for welcomed shade during hot summer months. Some sites are dry camp others are electric only no sewer hookups, but there is a dump and potable water fill station near park entrance. Also water spigots are in every loop and is no problem getting water. - dido

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

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

This was the coolest RV park we visited this summer. There were activities every couple of hours every day, as well as times for meeting Yogi Bear, Boo Boo, Cindy, and Ranger Smith. They had a "Hey" Ride every morning and evening, which was lots of fun. They have a nice-sized pool with a fun water slide and also a water playground right next to that for younger kids. The water playground was lots of fun. My daughter liked going back and forth between the water playground and the water slide over and over all day, every day we were there. There is an 18 hole mini golf course which was lots of fun. The decor of the golf course was very inventive and fun. The park is large and has lots of campsites all over, but still manages to be a pretty park with lots of grass and trees. The staff is all very helpful and kind. They are all professional but accommodating. There are lifeguards at both pools so that the parents can relax a bit while the kids play. There is a poolside bar by the pool with the water slide and they do a poolside party once a week, which was a blast. The park store was full of souvenirs and clothes and all kinds of necessities. The park is close to the freeway, but we were never bothered by the sound of the cars. Yogi makes regular appearances, even going to people's campsites if they request it. We rented a golf cart one evening and drove through the whole park. It's quite expansive and all of it was beautiful. There is a small lake where you can rent boats. We didn't do that, but we did buy the extra wristband to get the mini golf for cheaper. We would definitely stay at this park again and we recommend making this a destination for anyone with kids. - RVfamof3

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

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

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

Large campground with lots of beautiful trees (some could use trimming). There are lots of seasonal sites and those folks all seem to know one another and have a great time with potlucks and parties (not loud and not late). There is a relatively new bathhouse with 4 showers. Very modern and clean, although you have to keep hitting the button to get water (probably every minute). There's also a smaller, older bathhouse by the campground office but it was clean. I was unable to reserve a full hookup pull-through site for one weekend night, so I ended up staying two nights. Nice pool area. We had lots of rain and our site drained well. Access roads are a bit narrow. Pretty much everything you'd want in a campground. - Smashcamp

Campground was quiet during our 5 night stay (we were there visiting relatives in the Dells, Maxomanie and Madison areas). Laundry only has 2 washers (in good condition). Three working dryers but 1 was a clunker. Water seemed to be seeping up from the tile floor so beware if your clean laundry falls out of the dryers. Wi-Fi only works at the pavilion area. Satellite service was good. Would have rated them much higher but they need to do some serious tree trimming. My heretofore unscratched motorhome now has very long scratches along both sides and the top because of tree limbs. No way to avoid them when leaving the park. Would not stay there again specifically for this reason. Hard to patch up full body paint and scratched decals. - ParrotMom

Lovely place to stay off-season during the week (early May). Trees, level campsites reasonably distant from each other. - OmakMary

Stayed in the Quartzite Campground for the Fourth of July holiday. This part of the campground is an old golf course, as such, not much flat anywhere. You will need boards to level here and depending on the site, a lot of boards. Sites are large and spacious. There is drinking allowed here and at the lake, so campers can get rowdy. Campfire would is a distant away to purchase and easier to drive to get. Bathrooms are great, showers are separate rooms on the outside that are large and very nice. Lots of hiking and a nice hike to the lake. Campground has a separate entrance/exit once you are set-up, so even though there was a line up to get into the state park, we skipped and entered straight into the campground. Ranger walks the entire campground before night fall (yes, he actually walks the entire thing and does stop at campsites). For a holiday weekend, it was busy and noisy, but far less than a commercial campground and there was a lot of groups/families/etc there that made it a little more so because of the holiday. We booked the last site available and booked in December. - bloomis

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

Very nice campstore, Water/Electric sites are shady and larger than FHU's. Very noisy and crowded on weekends. 30 second push button showers. Good place for kids. Stay Saturday thru Wednesday and they would not allow PPA discount for Sun, Mon, Tues....not sure why but was told had to be staying Sunday-Thurs to use it??????? - nlee04

Staff was very friendly and very helpful. Sites are vary narrow but level. On the weekend most sites were full and tents for an extra charge (I think) could be placed on your site. We had a premium site with 50AMPS and full hook-ups. To me a premium site should be paved or cement pad not a gravel bed. - Jim W1

We were first assigned to a site which was way off level, but, upon request, they quickly relocated us to a much better site. The roads are bit tight but for most RVs this will not be an issue. Our site was a pull through, however, because of the tight roads, it was more convenient to back in. The wifi was good. The utility hook-ups were convenient. - Gator67

RV Park ¼ mile from casino and 5 miles outside the Wisc Dells. Quiet. Paved roads with wide level gravel sites with grass between. New trees so not tall yet. Long back in and pull thru sites. No wifi at sites. Manicured landscaping. Check in at Hotel registration. Parking lot and registration area big enough for RVs to maneuver. Good for travelers and big rigs. Nice kids playground. Nice Laundry area. Staff friendly and helpful. Lower cost during the week. Will stay there again. - Pepper Dan

Very well maintained full hookup sites with neatly cut grass and landscaped grounds. Convenient to casino but overlooks lots of open space, very green. Handy laundry and restrooms were new. Allowed to use hotel pool area with hot tub. Tribal tax adds $5 to bill plus state and local taxes, $97 for 2 nights. Casino buffet got low marks so we drove into Baraboo diner for dinner. Major shopping area 4 miles. - Todd Fogelberg

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
