We were attending the Lumberjack Championships in Hayward, WI and didn't want to pay $50 a night to stay in the KOA. We found the T.P. Resort online and it looked like a nice place and the rate for full hookup wasn't too high ($24.00 a night). The campground is 20 miles south of Hayward. The office for the campground is in a bar and the owner/bar tender is not very friendly. The campground does not take credit cards. There are 45 spaces in the campground, with 40 of those being used by full-time seasonal campers. The 5 reservable spaces require back-in off the main road. The gravel pads were not level (one side of our trailer was 6" lower than the other). Our 30' fifth wheel filled the space. There was poison ivy in the woods adjacent to our campsite. When I made our reservations, I was told this was a full hookup site. Their idea of full hookup and my idea of full hookup are different. At other campgrounds, full hookup has water, electric, and sewer at the site. At T.P. Resort, you have water and electric at each site, but the sewer is a portable container. They bring you a portable fiberglass sewer container which measures 4'x6' and is about 8" deep. They set it outside of your trailer next to you sewer outlet. The smell coming off this container was unbelievable. Trying to drain our tanks before we left was a real chore since the inlet to sewer was about 12" off the ground. I gave this campground a rating of 5 because the sites were shaded, the restrooms were clean, the laundry was open all night, and the fishing was great. We would not stay in this park again because of the sewer hookup. If we are going to Hayward again, we will bite the bullet and stay at the KOA. - clayshootjrh

This is a small, county park. Some of the sites are seasonal. The sites are tiny and you are only a few feet away from your neighbor, on both sides. Most of the sites are on the lake, which is beautiful. Our site was so small, that we could not use the fire ring, which was literally in the lake weeds. There is a swimming beach and play area. The bathrooms were clean and modern; there are pay showers (bring quarters). This campground is not a destination in and of itself, but makes a nice base camp for area activities or overnighting. - stpauligirl123

Great prices for full hookup! Have stayed here several times with my Grand kids. They have a great time and usually want to stay longer. The Ice Age Trail is nearby for hiking or just watching nature. The owners are friendly and outgoing. It's a great place for atvs, since you can ride from camp instead of trailering them to the trails. - KarenL1

Ok sites with easy access to atv trails. Owner/operator is not only unfriendly to children but has no problem getting drunk and swearing at them/in front of them. Very child unfriendly park. Don't come here with kids if you don't want them being exposed to profanity. - Coop123

1 mile gravel and washboard road leading into camp. Had to travel 5-10 mph. However, nice camp. About 90 seasonals with family. Resort type camp. No cable. No air TV. WiFi is $3 per night for one night. Concrete pad.
Will stay here again. - Sir_Charles395

We stayed here for a week. It is a wonderful, secluded campground. The management is super friendly, even remembered first my name from the day we arrived. The shower facilities are the only draw back, 8.5 at best. We would definitely stay there again. - Boyds nest

This was previously a KOA Campground and is now under new ownership. Campground has many "seasonal" campers. Our site was site #76, which you accessed down a narrow dirt path road. To our surprise our campsite was angled wrong for the one dirt road we entered on. we had to drive to the end of the campground where the owner told us there was a turn around. The road to the turn around area was VERY narrow and I barely got my normal sized RV trailer between the trees. Once we reached the "turn around" we discovered is was an over grown open spot in the field. If there had been any recent rain, we would have gotten stuck. Once we turned around and headed back down the road, we were able to back into our site. The site was cement pad nicely landscaped, but many sites were nothing more that a grassy opening in the woods. Wi-Fi was almost non exsistent. Pool was green, bathrooms were clean, but showers need some work. The space between our camper and the lake was very overgrown with no access to the lake behind our camper, which was suppose to be lake front. Road into campground is about 8/10 mile gravel. Overall, the owners are working hard to make this a good campground, but I fear when we return next year, it will be filled with seasonal campers, and no room for temps like us. - JaycoJoanRick

Rate was for our RV Club. Rate normally $30 first night, $75 next three night. Large 40' X 80' grassy sites. Only 3 years old so trees are small. Friendliest, most accommodating owner we have ever met. Free Wi-Fi excellent signal. Great fishing lakes to N, W, & E all within 5 miles. Definitely will go back. - sgtpp214

What I liked about this park: Everything at the park was immaculately cared for: office, restrooms, landscaping, etc. The nicest people we've met in a long time stay at this park regularly. Management is always cleaning, fixing, and they always try to accommodate your needs if you ask. They have occasional potlucks and barbeques. UPS and Fedex deliver packages to the park. What you may not like about this park: No Wifi. However; our Verizon hotspots worked very well here. If that hadn't been the case we would have been thoroughly miserable. No cable TV. No USPS mail delivery. No laundry room. No pool. No playground. No place to ride a bike. No water view from the park. Streetlights shine through RV windows. Every Sunday afternoon expect to listen to a riding mower motor cutting the grass at every campsite in the park for about 90 minutes. After it finishes the string trimmers start up for another 30 minutes or so. You will feel very at home, just like back in the suburbs. The grass: Every parking spot has a strip of lawn. You are not allowed to set ANYTHING on this lawn, not even your mat to keep the dirt out of your RV. Expect to pay 25 cents for water at the restroom sink and shower. - Virginia Welch

This park recently opened and everything was new and clean, but the owner has more work to do. We stayed here five days while visiting family and were the only people there. The 50 amp electric was good and the price was reasonable. We were able to get out with our satellite on the site behind the office. The sites were long and had picnic tables at each site. There are storage sheds for the seasonal campers. The only negative we found was the sewer pipe was a little too high. We would stay here again. - D&R

Great campground with very nice owner. Great location close to many areas in Wisconsin. The campground is very well kept up. Lots are spacious and offer some shade. Sites are gravel and grass, featuring a fire ring and picnic table. Would definitely stay at this campground again. - SCFKansas

We really enjoyed this RV Park. The owners/hosts are great folks and work hard to make sure their guests have a good time. We like it because the park is a working farm on over 250 acres. Lots of trails, lots of farm animals, fresh eggs, fresh produce, and anything else you can think of from farm. The area is great... make sure to stop by the Hunt Hill Sanctuary. - Paul M. Kitchen

Buck 'N' Beam's is located on a paved county road near town and with several resort lakes nearby. We arrived just after lunch and were met on the drive by Mr. Owner. He helped us back into a spot in the corner, bordered by lush pine growth. We had 50 amp & water, no sewer hookup. The wide gravel driveways were slightly rough, but being graded into shape by Mrs. Owner. A couple with 2 small children were traveling with us and they were given a secluded tent spot near us. The campground made a spot just for them, including a fire ring and picnic table that had never been there before. Our spot was level side-to-side and front-to-back and had grass on both sides, with ample room for our slides. Our picnic table was shaded by the pine trees and very bug-free. Although the little kids followed chickens (pets?) around through the trees for hours on end. The campground has a tavern that serves delicious pizza and short orders. I was worried about the noise, but they were no more noisy than any other restaurant would have been. A band played country music on Friday night, with no admission charge. Buck & Beamer are the names of the dogs that the camp is named after, and a couple of friendly Bassets greeted us noisily, whenever we approached the office. The restrooms were spotless all the time we stayed, 15 days. The showers cost about $3.00, but only take four quarters at a time, so we had to exit the shower stall to refill the coin machine about three times to finish washing and rinsing. The owners and everyone else there were very helpful and friendly, making us feel like we were with family within a couple of days. We would (no, make that WILL) stay there again. - Paul Harsin

We stayed two weeks in our 35 foot motor home. The driveways are gravel. Most sites are nearly level. We stayed on site 7, next to large pine trees. Most sites are near trees, but not shaded. The sites are very wide, with grassy lawns.
The office doubles as a bar, with a very small camp store. They have a bag-toss tournament on Thursdays and one night, a small band played till 11:00 PM.
They have a small playground, away from the camp sites. This is near the county road, so parents should supervise little ones.
The owners are very friendly and accessible. One met us and called me by name as we pulled in the first day. This friendly, personal contact was the same with every employee.
The campground is dog-friendly, with two Bassett residents who wander over to say Hi, but don't get in the way.
The only downside is the lack of sewer hookups, but campers can use the dump station near the exit.
Overall, we really enjoyed our stay. We would stay again, and recommend it to you. - Paul Harsin

I had a great stay at this campground. I stayed for 4 nights and had a different but good bartender each night. This is a new Campground and Bar. The sites are level. The water has an orange tint to it. That is a small problem for that area. The RV inline filter won't strain it out. I met the owner and he was also very friendly. They are also Motorcycle and ATV friendly. Trail access from the Campground they say. I would definitely stay here again! - thetonz

Very nice campground if you want to be on the water. Lake sites plenty wide and most long enough. Pull throughs have shade with big trees. Easy walk to downtown with couple good eating places and grocery store. - Rving2do

For years we passed by this campground on our way to Hayward and thought we should stay sometime. We finally did stay and we really enjoyed this campground! Campground host was super friendly. Our site #1 was right on Shell Lake and next to the boat launch. Sites all seemed very spacious. Our site wasn't very level and water and electric were quite a distance (used both hoses and electric cables). Bathrooms/showers were lacking cleanliness and privacy and my kids didn't like the bugs located within. Swimming was fun both by our camper and at the public beach located right next to campground. Water is clear and shallow for quite a distance. - antigua195ck

We liked this campground a lot. The front row is right on the water - great views. The middle row offers lake views also, but I would advise you to get in the middle of this row since there is shade there. Not alot of shade on the ends of this row. Third row is mostly shaded, Fourth row mostly shaded and faces parking lot. All spots fairly level. Great bath/shower house - very clean and thoughtful details like plenty of hooks, hanging soap/shampoo rack, etc. Good access to downtown. As part of the municipal complex you are right next to a great sandy beach, playground, a new band shell/pavilion (with occasional performances scheduled). Also plenty of boat docks for boating and fishing. Good fishing in this lake. Kids catch a lot of little fish right off the dock. We saw more serious fishermen catching big fish - we saw one big muskie caught. Close to hospital & medical. There is good cell phone coverage. No wireless access, but library is within walking/biking distance and offers free wireless and also access to library computers to check your internet. Weeknights seemed pretty quiet, but weekends had a little more nighttime noise - turn on your fan. We enjoyed our stay and would go back again. - sh4295
