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. We camped at Baraboo Hills Campground in a Motorhome.

Very nice campground. Managers are very nice people. This is a very family friendly campground with many activities for the kids. Nice pool. We have stayed at this campground several times and will go back to it again. The only drawback for us is that it's a three-hour drive. We camped at Baraboo Hills Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Pull thru sites are a good size. The campground WI-FI is very spotty - at best. Many seasonal units in this campground. Chaotic kid activity. They had a kids activity to make T-shirts, yet they had no kid sizes only adult sizes. Everything is an extra charge. Wrist bands needed to do activities and they are $25 per child. We have been here before, but this will be our last trip. To expensive for family. Not well kept or supervised campground. The water was shut off for an hour on a holiday weekend right at the lunch hour. Gravel roads very dusty in the campground. Save your money and camp elsewhere.

Sites are not paved and roads are gravel. Entrance area for checkin is very crowed and close and roadways to sites are not very wide and in need of tree trimming. No ability to get satellite. Campsites are kind of dark and dreary due to coverage of trees. Shade is nice but this was too much. This is a campground that is best utilized by families with smaller rigs. It appeared that there were lots and lots of things for the kids to do. Entrance to park is on a curve so care is needed going and coming. We camped at Baraboo Hills Campground in a Motorhome.

This campground was nice enough to take us in when another campground (Crystal lake RV Resort)had double-booked several sites including ours. From the time we pulled in, the staff was super friendly and accommodating. If you have children this is a great place to stay. There are plenty to keep the kids busy, and many activities to keep them entertained. Amazingly with all of the activities, everything is on time, and runs smoothly. Bathrooms were clean, store and restaurant were nice, and carried the essentials. Sites were a good size, and the park was clean. This campground included both a swimming pond and swimming pool. I highly recommend this place to families with children (of all ages). We camped at Baraboo Hills Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Great campground with lots of activities for kids. Sites were hard to get into with a 12ft pop up. Anything bigger than my camper would have been a real chore to get into. Staff was real nice, and the campground offers a lot of things for the kids to do. The only thing I didn't like was the fact that they charge $10 bucks or so for a wrist band to putt putt and to use the jump pillow. Many campgrounds are going to this though so it wasn't a surprise. Really had a good time though and will return. We camped at Baraboo Hills Campground in a Tent Trailer.

Great place for kids. Lots of things for them to do. We stayed during the week so not as many but enough. Really nice campground and close by to lots of activities. We were there to visit the Dells. Of course that explains all the children with all the amusements at the Dells. We personally would not have wanted to be there on a weekend. The owners were very accommodating and very friendly. Sites were a little difficult to back in with all the trees. But overall our stay was really nice. We camped at Baraboo Hills Campground in a Motorhome.

Large spaces, lots of trees and grass-children playing-dogs fetching--almost idyllic. On the week-end the entire tone of the campground changed--2-3 carloads of people for each campsite, screaming children (and adults), barking dogs, car alarms--clothes lines strung from every vertical structure in the park with not only bathing suits and towels on them, but underwear, tablecloths, etc--(it looked like a Brooklyn slum scene in a bad 50's movie). Due to the way the park is laid out--all of the activities (pool, playground, arcade, miniature golf, and bikes are right at the only road to enter the park--walking, driving or riding was next to impossible due to the crush of people-and very dangerous to all. Most parents were responsible--but some abdicated their responsibility and allowed their children to bully smaller children, be rude and generally behave in a dangerous and irresponsible manner. The campground was hideous for 2 solid days. By Sunday afternoon the "hordes" had gone home, most (not all) of the clotheslines were down and the park returned to its pleasant, quiet, idyllic self. This park is close to the Dells, the Crane foundation, shopping, restaurants and Baraboo and the Circus Museum. We would stay here again--but NEVER, EVER on a week-end! We camped at Baraboo Hills Campground in a Motorhome.

Very clean and well taken care of. Owners and staff will do anything to help. This is a great park for a family with children. Also for a family park it was very quiet. Wish all parks were like this one. We camped at Baraboo Hills Campground in a Travel Trailer.

I would like to recommend this campground to all who read the entries at this site. The owner of this campground strives very hard to keep things clean, neat, orderly and safe. I heard some of the reservationists explain the quiet time policy to some young guests, and as a family of four with small children, I am really grateful for the effort put forth to ensure that each site is guaranteed peace and quiet at a decent time. Baraboo Hills is all about "family" as you can tell by the recently added train ride which gave our small children a short ride around the camp. There is no need to leave the campground for activities as there is plenty to do here. In the morning, we noticed that left our truck radio on all night, and the truck would not start. The manager came out and jumped our battery right away so we could get going at no charge. Now that's going the extra mile! We'll be back year after year and will recommend this campground to our friends. We camped at Baraboo Hills Campground in a Campground Cabin.

We stayed here memorial day weekend. We stayed in a campsite across from some of the cabins, as we had friends staying in the cabin. I felt it was a nice campground to stay at. Sites were wide enough and had some room. Staff was friendly, family's camping nearby were all friendly. Pool was full as it was a great weekend for weather. Back to the sites. They were grassy, shaded, water, electric and sewer. Wouldn't ask to change any of that. Thank you for the great weekend. Our friends loved the cabin as well.

We have camped at this park many times over the last 6 years, including last Labor Day weekend. It is my kids first choice in parks because they like the free sport shop. Regarding the above negative reviews, as I mentioned, we camped there at the same time so I was concerned about the issue of harrassment and stalking. I checked with the Baraboo Police Department and was informed that they do not have jurisdiction over the campground, hence they did not send out anyone from their department. The campground falls under the Sauk Co. Sherriff's Department, so I checked with them and they also said that they never sent anyone out to talk to the owners. So the prior statements regarding the police are not true. As I mentioned my family was there, we witnessed their loud behavior and to answer the question in a prior review as to "If they were so bad why weren't they told to leave?" It might help to know that on Sunday night we over heard the owners trying to talk to them, and when the owners said something about evicting them, the campers response was something to the effect of; you can't kick us out, we've been drinking and can't drive. This admission from them explains a lot of what was really going on. If they were drinking, their memory is most likely cloudy and skewed regarding the events of the weekend. This confirms my first thoughts which are that the large group of people we saw there, who were loud and disruptive, are trying to bad mouth a nice place. It is my families first choice in campgrounds, the bathrooms are always clean and there is always something for my kids to do. I would continue to go there with out any concerns. The staff has always been very helpful and friendly. We will continue to go and recommend this campground to any family. We camped at Baraboo Hills Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Our family was there Labor Day weekend as well and we defineately did not see the conditions you are claiming. Nor the "evil" staff members either. We were camping in the same area as you were and have a different view of what happened. There were times that the noise level at night was a little much for us. We were not the only ones who felt this way. I don't think that the security staff or the campground owner would single any one out if there was not a concern by surrounding sites. After all there were a lot of other guests there besides your sites. However I do commend a campground that enforces a "quiet time " policy. In fact it is one of the main reasons we have continued to return to this campground. A family atmosphere is what they have always provided. I am all for people having a good time but respect for the campground and the other guests has always been a concern for me when we visiting different areas. I have never had to worry about that at this campground. I think you need to look at the definition of the word "stalking" in the dictionary. You may have it confused with the enforcement of campground policies. It is a shame that your experience was not a good one. I don't think, however that it was the fault of the Campground authorities. We have been camping here for several years and I am sorry but we strongly disagree with what you have claimed.
