9 Parks near Bayfield, Wisconsin
Jul 2016 - $40.00
We selected this campground because of location to Apostle Islands NL. The roads inside the park are quite tight and rough but if you go slow you should be okay. Our site was level and worked well for us. I could see where some site might have a problem because the park is on a slighty steep hill which adds to its character.
The electric was only 30 amp so you had to watch your usage. No wifi or cable and there were only 5 OTA channels.
A caution, it looks like the park is up for sale but the owner was out everyday that we were there working on items around the park to maintain it. - John Borajkiewicz

When we looked up the campground for our stay they made a point of saying how level the sites were and how friendly the service was. When we got there, however, we found that they weren't very friendly. We had read nothing stating this campground doesn't take credit cards, we were lucky we had cash on hand. The man who took care of us was rude, short and rather grumpy, as if we were encroaching on his time. He was rude when he stated we could not go outside our site into the woods at all, and that the dogs must be on a very short leash at all times. We can understand the rules, but the method of imparting them on us was rather short.
As we drove to the site we found massive man-made speed bumps, these weren't little and were tough to drive over on a slant. The site wasn't level in the least, we were listed to one side no matter how many times we attempted to find a better leveled area. A little uneven is to be expected, nature doesn't always comply after all, but this left us with a very long step down out of the side door and if you opened a cupboard the door would swing on it's own.
The bathrooms were not as advertised - very old-school girl scout camp style, not a problem but they were advertised as clean and kept up. These were little more than open air stalls. The sinks were in the next room over, you had to step outside and go around to get to them. Again, not a problem; they were just not as advertised. The shower was dirty, dark and $1.50 per five minutes, and not very hot.
The dump station was so unkempt that you needed a wrench and a hammer to get it so you could hook up!
Overall it was a poor experience with poor service. Be prepared for hilly interior roads, dirt roads and washed out sections. Uneven, bumpy, and rough. - NewYorkCountryGirl

The owner assigned us a site with DirecTV service from our mounted antenna. The park was quite hilly but sites were fairly flat. I resented the sarcastic wording on internal stop and speed limit signs. In checking in, the owner asked my if I could behave for 4 days. My appearance is that of a senior citizen! - Bill Strong

This park is on Madeline Island. You will need to take the fairy over. You'll be looking at approx. $130.00 round trip for 2 adults for the fairy ride. This is a nice Wi State Park. Plenty of beautiful views, water so clean it's deceiving how deep it is! Great hiking trails & a wonderful sand beach. The facilities are cleaned twice daily. Like most state parks, the is only electric, but you can fill your camper before getting to your site.
No pump- out at the park, but there is one at the municipal airport on the island.
A truly unique experience for the adventurous type. - rnv

You can make reservations for this park. There is a$5 reservation fee. At first glance this campground was not very impressive, but we ended up enjoying our stay here while we explored the Apostle Islands and the park. We had to do some blocking, but most sites seem somewhat level. The sites vary significantly in size and placement. The restrooms are nearby and are the Park Service restrooms. There are showers for a fee. We did not use either of these as we are self-contained. There are water fills located throughout. There is a dump with rinse water but not fresh water. We had to work hard, but we were able to find a hole in the trees for our portable satellite dish. We were able to get Verizon data and voice, but only when using our Wilson amp and rooftop antenna. Bayfield with shopping, restaurants, and activities is about 20 minutes away. All of the roads to reach the campground are paved, but about 10 miles are quite bumpy. It was very quiet at night and nice and dark. We would stay here again if visiting the area. - TheJim

This a quiet little campground. If you have big rig some spots will not accommodate you. There are no water hookups but they do have potable water at different locations to fill your tank. Campground hosts are very nice people. Out of the way place but full on the week ends. Very nice beach area. Bring enough electric cord as the electric box is shared with two sites. We would stay here again. - TEXASBOY

A bit off the beaten path, secluded and quiet. All sites on grass with gravel roads. Showers available but are pay, restrooms next door at the NP parking for the Apostle Islands. Close to beach (across road), marina/harbor, and historic fishing works. Hosts very friendly. Nice beach to walk along, clean, sheltered. Can see some of the islands from campground. Most sites open and with few large trees for shade. Tent sites off to side more removed from main camp. - Browndogs2

This is an average campground that is overpriced especially for a casino. Roads and sites are dirt/gravel and muddy if it rains. Sites are arranged irregularly around a hilltop and vary a lot in size, spacing, and levelness. Water spigots and electric boxes are also found in some odd places. Clean and modern bathrooms and showers are available in the hotel building but it is a bit of a walk up to them. The office staff was friendly and helpful when registering. It is in a pretty setting above Lake Superior and the marina, but in hindsight I should have just dry camped. - JoyceM

A small park, next to the casino and overlooking Lake Superior. On a hillside with great views; site sizes are typical. Wi-fi available at casino cafe. Our site 43 was on the end of the loop and spacious but not level; others seemed more cramped. - Liv2RV

We stopped "on a whim". We were told one site would be available within the hour. Not true. The fella was booked for one more night. Then, we were given an even better site right on Lake Superior frontage. Beautiful. Someone had reserved it for the next night so we had to move to a space two down, an even better site. The spaces were very tight, roads narrow, had to drive in a certain way to get into it. I walked it first and figured out a good, easy way to do this. A fella was extremely helpful and solved issues. Others complained of "issues". It is a casino. Good food. A convenient shuttle took you into Bayfield. The dump station was not convenient. You could rent kayaks. The view was spectacular from both of our sites. - Sunnie-Wheelhouse

This is a nice, small campground right in the small town of Washburn and on Lake Superior. Some of the sites overlook the lake. We made reservations online, and there is one campground section for those who made online reservations. When you make your reservation, you have to pick a site, but it tells you nothing about that site...just if it's available for your date. Some of the sites are pretty small and some are not very level. These have electric, but no water or sewer. The sites that can be reserved are the ones in the woods. The wifi is fantastic...the fastest we've ever had in a campground! The bathrooms are typical campground and adequate. The showers are 25 cents for 3 minutes. My water took almost a minute to get hot. But since the camping rate is low, I didn't consider that a problem! They had some sort of festival the weekend before we got here and we were told that the place was packed, so if you want to come in late July, check for whatever event is going on here. - mom2wildlife

Campground sits right on the shore of Lake Superior, with views of boats going in and out of the town harbor. During our visit, there were lots of seasonal campers and relatively few first come-first served sites remaining. So our site was a little short for parking our 5th wheel and 3/4 ton tow vehicle and had a mudhole on one front corner. But we would recommend it to others for a 1-2 night stay. - fanrgs

Beautiful park in a beautiful setting. Lots of shade with spacious campsites. Electric hookup only. Arrive with your water tank full. Not easy to find water to fill up at the park. Short walk to downtown. Located right along Lake Superior, a few sites actually overlook the lake. This is a good place to spend a day or two. Excellent Verizon and AT&T phone and data service. - Charles3

We were looking for a place to stay that would enable us to explore the Bayfield Peninsula and the Apostle Islands. We're self-contained and don't use the facilities. We stayed on weeknights in August.
This campground is a gem. The sites were large. Most had views of Lake Superior. It is self-service with a host - we didn't meet the host. There's good Verizon and AT&T coverage. There's free WiFi with variable speeds, depending upon time of day. Most sites have electric and there's an artesian well (standard hookup available) and dump station near the entrance/exit. - dsvt

Nice park, some sites have Lake Superior views. Corners are tight around loops, watch for posts. We loved the area. Would definately stay here again. Electric only. An artisan well on property to fill our water jugs for drinking water. Dump station and potable water spigots. Many seasonal campers but they keep their sites neat & clean. Fills up most night, at least while we were here in July. - Coley

This is a small park that is tight for large rigs; however, it can be done. Roads are narrow, but sites are rather large. Parking for a toad in front of the RV was tight. We found the park to be quiet with friendly local people making up most of the campers. This is a nice area that is close to the Twin Cities. - illini777

Nice little City park. Bear in mind, other than monthly reserved sites, the whole park is on a first come first served basis, no reservations taken, and pay by check,or cash in an envelope placed in a secured drop box. Best time to get there is about noon or early afternoon as the place fills up fast in high season.
Nice trail that runs next to the lake for about 3 miles. Visit Bayfield, 17 mile drive. Boat trips to the Apostle Islands are nice. Nice new large casino about 2 miles north of Bayfield.
One final note... The City has a construction project ongoing the rest of 2016 in the lot adjacent (east) to the RV park. Extremely loud backup alarms and construction noise start at 6 AM and continue all day until 5 PM 6 days a week. - AlaskaJack

This is a self pay city park, checks or cash. Small, narrow roads on Chequamenon Bay. A little sandy beach but not for swimming. We had a good sunset view of the water. Easy walk to town, two blocks, to a local family restaurant, pizza store, Dairy Queen, local convenience store. Big storm day or two before we arrived and many trees were down around town and one near our site. - Sunnie-Wheelhouse

Was so glad we spotted this little city park as the hiway east was washed out and Walmart would not let you stay there even with major washout east on hiway 2 after major flooding. Beautiful spot. No office. Self check-in but does have a host camper to give you code to restrooms. - Rpopeye

Well My family and I are regulars since we live in Bessemer. We know the seasonals down here. If you like to go to bed early, DO NOT COME HERE!! There is a lot of partying here but it will be quiet by 11PM. The rate is a little expensive for what you get. 5 spots are walk-in spots and another 5 are tent spots along the lake so that doesn't leave many spots for trailers. If you are traveling I suggest you go to the driftwood where you can get a spot. There are no reservations. - Yooperboy
