12 Parks near Blue Mounds, Wisconsin
Jul 2012 - $19.00
We camped here during the week and there was no more than 6-7 other campsites in use. Our site was level and surrounded by lots of foliage and tall trees. The washrooms were well maintained and very clean. The showers were a nice size with a small bench. Which was great to take small children into the shower with you. A nasty storm rolled through and the park staff checked on everyone and were very friendly. The pool is large with a diving board. Also has a kiddie pool about 18 inches deep for the little ones. The downside is you must pay an entry fee to use the pool. - SkinnyMinny

The State Park is great, but the campground needs some work. Most of the sites are small and not "Big Rig Friendly". The interior roads are paved and the sites are gravel. The park is right on the Military Ridge State Trail. - Paul M. Kitchen

This is a heavily used campground being close to Madison. We had some trouble to find a spot for our 32 foot 5th wheel and tow vehicle. The ranger had a funny policy of find your site and then go back and see if it had been reserved. Not far from the Blue Mounds cave which is just ok, but do go see the Mustard Museum in Mt Hoerb, and the Artisian Gallery there. A trip to the Norweigian place is neat too. This campgrounds is a good place for smaller RVs and tents. - stetwood

Located high on a hill. The views are awesome. Lot of shade trees. Well landscapped. Spaces are tight though. - tom3205

Located about 6 miles from the town of Dodgeville. Beautiful park-like setting amidst the corn fields. Campground was almost full on the weekend but cleared out by Monday. Sites were gravel and ok for a few nights. If you have satellite make sure you ask for a site that is open to the sky. Some sites are level and others are not. Bathrooms are in need of cleaning and updating. No sewer but dump station is easily accessible. There are not many campgrounds in the area. We will stay here again. - lmg

Very nice quiet park set on a hillside out in the country. No cell service no Internet, just sit back read a book and or look at the beautiful countryside. Owner very nice old guy keeps a real clean campground. This is a place to relax with no frills. It was built when RVs were small, with no slides, so the lots are small but he only uses half the lots. Nice place to get together with friends and relax. - what next

This park is very expensive for non Wisconsin residents. If you plan to stay over 1 night or at any other Wisconsin state parks you should purchase the out of state park decal which will give you a 50% reduction. The entrance attendant did not offer this option so we did not know until after reading literature. In addition, if you are a walk in you must choose a site before entering from a map with no pictures or descriptions. With all that said this is a park which has a lot to offer. Most sites are very large and private with options from complete shade to sunny. There is only 30 amp service which was adequate in fall weather. There are potable water spigots around the park but not at individual sites. We had antenna service and adequate Verizon but no Sprint. There are miles of well maintained trails which intersect and allow leashed dogs. All had benches along the trails. There are 2 lakes with swimming and boating and ample parking and picnic areas. The only trash containers are at the dump station near the park entrance. There are no cans in camping loops. We would definitely stay again and would purchase the state park decal. At $20 it would be great price. We gave it an 8 for the cost and fact that our site had no grass and was muddy. There were many nicer sites for our needs but as we could not look they were not an option. - bbmidwife

A beautiful park with breathtaking scenery and a beautiful waterfall. Lots of trails to hike and fishing opportunities. Site was spacious and shaded, 30 A with water nearby. The park itself was wonderful. The camp hosts could have done a better job of cleaning the bathrooms. In the 3 days that we were there I don't think they ever cleaned them. We would return though just because of the park itself. - Southbar

Nice park, Had a family outing years ago here and enjoy the spacious spots. There are some restrictions but they can be worked with. Best part is the grounds are well kept. - BenFranklinC

I enjoyed my stay there. While it is a no-frills campground, it is clean and has ample grass. All of the slots are pull-through, but only one site (far end) has easy access to the dumping station/sewer. If it's available, grab it. Clear, unencumbered view of the southern sky for satellite dishes, and plenty of local channels available by OTA antenna. Small walk to downtown. Office is in a restaurant. Both restaurant and office close around noon each day. Very clean, very QUIET, which I loved. Near the schools and a short walk to downtown and bicycle trail. Would definitely stay there again when in the Madison area. - Johnny Blood

Small park with great possibilities if they would only do a little tree trimming on the entrance drive. Not very big rig friendly. My motorhome is 12' 6" high and I barely made it in and out without damage. New Glarus is such a nice little destination town and there are no other RV parks or Walmart nearby. Park is older and worn. I did not check out any of the bath facilities if they had any. Hookups are shared between two sites. On a post between the pull-through sites are four 30 amp outlets and four water hose hookups so the RVs pull in head to toe to connect. Water and electric were fine. No cable but got several local channels over the air. A dump station is located in the park. I found a free Wi-Fi that allowed me to connect. Sites are grassy, gravel and level. Grass cutting was OK. Grounds were clean and uncluttered. Park is located behind the Town Edge restaurant which closes at 2 PM. Call the restaurant for reservations. Cash or check, no credit cards. I would have been quite happy at the Town Edge RV Park and given a better rating if they had only done some tree trimming at the entrance. A State Park is located about 1 mile south. I drove through the state park to check it out but sites are suitable for an RV of any size (think tent sites). State park has pit toilets and no hookups and no showers. - whereisbill

As mentioned before, the campground is part of the cafe in town and closes are 2:00 PM. We arrived after this time and took a site, plenty open. Paid for the site the next morning when the cafe opened. Did not use the bathrooms so can not comment on their conditions. Location is great for exploring town, just walk up the street. Brewery has move out of town, up on the hill. During summer months there is a shuttle from down town to the brewery for tours. Would stay again for a night or two. - Cruisin with Cosmo

Very nice park, close to town yet has a country atmosphere. Some of the gravel/grass sites could be tight if the park was full, but not when we were there in Sept. Park has a nice restaurant, swimming pool, mini-golf, and river activities. Plenty of open grass for kids and dogs to play. We requested a site in the back of the park, because we have 3 dogs. It was like they had their own large back yard (leashed of course). We would definitely stay here again if in the area. - FranM

Our site was right at the main entrance and even thought there was lots of traffic, it was not that noisy. Fun to watch everyone coming to tube/canoe. The site was narrow but we were with others so we could enjoy there space. There are much larger sites available. - User3521

I gave this a '7' because of all the public activities at the Resort. They have a canoe/kayak rental and guided trip business here also. And the restaurant with outdoor patio and corn hole game on the river are open to the public also.
This can cause congestion and some issues for getting in or out of the campground as you must traverse the public parking lot.
The river is fine for kayaking/canoe. Some current in July but wide, shallow and only one clear channel of deep water- not marked at all. Lots of big sandbars.
Sites are grass and some gravel, but they are level and there are a few smaller trees around for minimal shade. Basically it is a big open field of sites with some paved roads. The pool and restroom/showers and laundry are restricted to campground patrons only. They are all located at the front of the campground so it can be a hike for those in the back.
It was only about 1/4 full when we were here so no problems at all. Showers were nice enough and water pressure was good.
Would stay again but only during the week. Seems groups come on weekends and "party." We were here on a Sunday and Monday. Spring Green is a nice little town and we enjoyed our stay here. - sunandwater

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. - Southbar

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. - Marsha D

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'. - DeltaViking

Quiet and the rate for a week was cheap at $150. (Cash/checks ONLY.) When coming from Madison, easy to miss because their sign is really beat up. (Other side not to bad). As previous review said, it needs some TLC. Is within walking distance to the town. If you don't need all those amenities that the expensive parks charge (swimming pool, laundry, cable TV, internet etc.), this should work for you. We had a decent sized pull-through near the entrance. Interior roads are gravel/dirt. Location made it easy to get our motorcycles in and out of the trailer and out to the road. Would probably stay again if we're in the area. - User1505

This park is not anything I would normally look for in an RV park. About 98% of the park appears to be seasonal sites (they are open from April 15-Oct. 15). Some of the mobiles are OK, but the vast majority needed lots of TLC. In spite of this we really enjoyed our stay here. The transient sites are on the east side butting up against a large meadow with a woodsy area behind that. We had a large pull through grass site among lots of trees with a lot of birds, rabbits, and squirrels running around. The park is right beside busy Hwy. 12, however except for a few vehicles it wasn't a problem. The park for the most park is very quiet. It's a short walk/drive into a quaint little town with grocery shopping about 3/4 mile from camp. Madison is only about 23 miles away and there is lots to see within about 25 miles all directions. We would stay here again. I would have rated higher however I checked out the bathrooms and found them to be very dirty. I would not have used them at all. The park takes cash/checks only. No credit cards. Very laid back management. - flyturbo60

Some of the sites are right angle to the road, making it difficult to back into without traveling on the grass. Fill with water at the restrooms-shower-dump area before setting up. A small park with some children's playgrounds. - stetwood

Big, grassy sites. Although located in the city, it was a quiet, pleasant park. Campground is clean; has pump-out service by bathrooms/shower house. - rnv

OK, so why a 9 rating, with dirty showers and bad bathrooms? I guess I just anticipated that as a county park open to the public the bathrooms would be less than desirable. Once you get by that, after all you are in your own rig, this is really a nice place. Lots of space between your neighbors, level spots, great camp hosts, right by Lake Mendota, greener than you can imagine, 4 bars of the faster Verizon 4g you can imagine. It really is a great place. We were here for 2 weeks and enjoyed every day here. Both the local police and the county rangers run regular patrols though the place. - rh2669

We stay at Babcock because it is located close to relatives. The park is small and on a busy highway but is grassy and tree covered so cool in the summer. The sites are fairly level and have a picnic table and good electricity. A dump and potable water are available. Camp hosts onsite are friendly and helpful. - mountainfan

This small county park is actually in McFarland, not Madison, but its close enough to Madison to be a good stopover point for visiting the Madison area. The park is a simple linear park with sites on both sides of the road. All sites appeared to have electric service; ours also had a 50 amp hookup. Potable water and a dump station are located at the turnaround at the end of the short road. Traffic is heavy on the nearby road but at night things quiet down. Restaurants and gas stations are within a short walk from the park. A boat launch is accessible from the park, but with an extra fee. We stayed here two years ago while visiting relatives as well as this year, and we'd stay here again when in the area. - Jay Rutherford

Not sure I could ever recommend this place. I called for a space as we were traveling through and specifically asked for a pull-through full hookup as I was towing and did not want to disconnect. I wanted to pull out early the next morning. I was told by the person answering the phone that that yes we have a site in our hanger section. I happened to be on their website so I looked a the map and said, wow, those are long pull-through sites and she said yes they were. So it was clear that I was expecting a pull through site.
Imagine my surprise when we arrive and I have a back in. I was not happy and had a conversation with a nice person who brought the papers to my site. Her and the person I had spoken to previously had a conversation over the radio and I was basically called a liar.
We ended up staying but here is the deal. The hanger section is the furthest away from the "facilities" as it could possibly be. They have 1 or 2 porta potties, yes, porta potties that are close.
We drove over to the "beach" and pool. You meander through so many "permanent" trailers stacked on top of each other. I am unsure I could have driven my 38' motorhome through all the cars, campers, golf carts, tents. We didn't even get out of the car when we got to the beach as their was no where to park.
This place is a fire bomb waiting to happen. Once camper/trailer or campfire problem and it will be a nightmare. How they can stuff that many in one area with one road in or out and no way to move between is beyond me. Any fire marshal would shut them down. - WYDan

90 to 95 percent were seasonal permanent sites. Staff was friendly but everyone else was drunk. We had a 3 day min.stay but left after the 2nd night of listening to noisy golf carts and cussing drunks till 3 or 4 in the morning.The pool was nice but at 9 in the morning you go there and every lounge chair (about 40 or so) had beach towels on them even though there were only 2 people in the pool so you have to sit on the concrete. The lake looked nice but smelled awful due to all the algae and I mean a lot of it washing up on shore. My daughter came back to the camper with her suit all green.We were told that the owner was across the road from us so we know they heard all the noise at night but did nothing because the drunken rednecks were regulars and that's fine there are plenty of other campgrounds to go to. Very few rental sites tightly squeezed in near the back of the pool and noisy bar so kids won't get much sleep. If you just want to hang out and get drunk this is the place!! - Roy Abramat

Park had lots of places for children to play, in and out of the water, but for 'retired' adults traveling through, I would not recommend it. Long pull through sites were not very level gravel. Office was located almost a mile from the entrance, on winding roads through lots of permanent campers, which was what the camp consisted of mostly. Only two showers, located 1/2 mile walk from our camp site; Outside porta pots were our closest provided toilets. - wheelen jv
