We enjoyed our stay at this scenic park. Lots of shade and very quiet (we camped during the week). Husband caught quite a few fish. There is a beach and also a concession stand. Showers were clean and plenty of hot water. Also dog friendly. Would stay here again. We camped at Yellowstone Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed in a site without hookups, so the price was $14 for one night, plus a $10 park entrance fee since we were from out of state. I thought the $14 fee was a pretty good deal. The location of the posts with the site number on was located in a way that made it awkward backing in, and most of the sites are sloped, making leveling a challenge. We were there on a rainy day and once we unhooked the trailer slid back about an inch, even while chocked, making me wonder if we were going to slide into the ditch at the back of the site. Another minus was we had to drive quite a ways away from the campground to pay for our site assignment, then drive back. Usually, the pay/fee station is at the campground entrance. We camped at Yellowstone Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Excellent area, very close to nature, but accessible by driving some distance on narrow two lane roads. The sites appear to have been ignored for some years. Most need a treatment of crushed stone or gravel. Many sites have poor drainage. Interior roads are narrow asphalt and are deteriorating, illustrating lack of ongoing maintenance. New investment in first class restrooms and separate commodious shower rooms. Very clean and neat. Grass had not been cut or trimmed for some time and this may have contributed to our site being fairly 'buggy'. We camped at Yellowstone Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This spring Yellowstone Lake opened the non electric loop early due to the nice weather, so we took advantage of this and went camping. Even though the water had not been turned on, so the showers and flush toilets were not available, we were able to fill up at the entrance. The ranger was very helpful and friendly. The area is beautiful, the campground was fantastic. We had a few owls for neighbors who hooted all night. I can see why this campground is booked solid during the summer. We camped at Yellowstone Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

Beautiful park on a ridge in rolling "Driftless" area of s.w. Wisconsin. The campground has large sites, but many are not level enough for large rigs - a few are, and the reservation website includes site size info. Most sites have some shade from large trees. Site pads gravel, some partly overgrown with grass; grassy areas are kept mowed. Mosquito's are less bothersome than in many other campgrounds in the region as the park maintains several bat houses in the campground. New shower house has individual shower rooms - very nice for a state park!! The lake in the park is maintained for fishing, but offers boating (rentals available) & swimming too. There's a small cafe in the park run by the local dairy council, serving burgers, homemade fries, hot dogs, and other such things - and ice cream, of course! This is one of the few state park campgrounds we have been to that emphasizes and really enforces quiet hours, which we really enjoyed. Major drawback to this campground is the small number of sites suitable for large RVs, and how difficult it can be to find (GPS recommended!), as it's really out in the boonies. Incidentally, for tenter's, this is a fantastic park, with many extremely private sites. We camped at Yellowstone Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.

A very beautiful park, lots of privacy at the campsites. There is a new bathroom with huge individual rooms for showers (it's nice to shower without being by someone using the potty). The bats were great, they even came out in the rain. Despite them, however, there were lots of flies and mosquitoes, most likely due to the heavy flash flood rain we were having. It's definitely out in the boonies-don't forget anything! We camped at Yellowstone Lake State Park in a Tent Trailer.

Beautiful Wisconsin State park. The sites are very private but not very level. The beach and lake area is very nice but it is a long walk from the campground downhill. It is a very hilly area. We really enjoyed this park and will return soon. We camped at Yellowstone Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

We came for the bats and were not disappointed! This park is home to hundreds of mosquito eating bats - as a result, we could camp without bug spray! Every evening at dusk, they fly around chomping unwary bugs but never bothering the campers. Interpretative programs about bats happen on weekends. Nice swimming beach down the hill from the campground. Campground divided into two parts: small loop of sites 1-36, large loop for the others. The small loop had many Class A friendly sites that had ample room. Sites 37-128 generally didn't seem as level; we liked the smaller loop better. Vegitation separates the camp sites so you don't feel packed in. Many activities - but you'll need a vehicle to enjoy them (ie, a Motorhome without a Toad is limiting). Friendly rangers, good cell phone and Blackberry coverage. The one problem: This park is in the middle of nowhere! Better be comfortable driving on narrow paved county two-lane hilly and curvy roads to get here! Good day trips include House on the Rock (gotta see it to believe it), Pendarvis historical site, a cave tour, and a mine tour. Very nice playground for the kids. We camped at Yellowstone Lake State Park in a Motorhome.
