This park is a hidden gem, in a quiet area well away from the Interstate but with good access. All sites have 50A/water and the dump station is convenient to the exit. The paved interior roads are in fair-to-good condition and oriented to allow rigs of any size to maneuver, albeit with some tighter curves and some stray branches that need trimming. The area is wooded, so use Google Earth to get an idea of the layout if satellite access is important to you. Roughly half the sites require advance reservations (there is an additional fee that is included in our daily rate) and half are walk-ups. The reservation rules can be complicated so read the web site carefully. The hosts had no record of our reservation, but were able to straighten it out quickly with my email confirmation. We stayed for a week mid-summer and things were mostly quiet. We didn't see any long-term campers other than the hosts (one for the whole 90+ site campground). There is no designated pet area and several signs warn that pets are not allowed outside the campground in the day-use areas. There is no WiFi or cable, as expected. Although near railroad tracks, we heard very few trains go by. We liked it so much we've already booked a return stay for later in the summer as we pass through the area again. We camped at Cliffside County Park in a Motorhome.
Beautiful park with lovely, spacious sites. Lots of large hardwood trees but still open enough to easily receive sat. reception. We stayed here for 10 nights. there were some longer term campers who were very rude and noisy with barking dogs next door to us. We complained to the host who assisted us getting onto another site. Wish instead they had tossed the rude campers out but they didn't do that. Would have given a 10 as a rating but since they did not have sewer hook up could not do that. We camped at Cliffside County Park in a Fifth Wheel.

There are a couple of things that make this an 8 instead of a 10. There is a $12 reservation fee on top of the nightly rate. There are no sewers but there is a dump station. There is no pool. Now for the good things. The sites are very roomy with plenty of shade. Even with the trees, there are plenty of spaces that can get satellite. The Verizon service is 5 bar 4G. They recently (2014) made improvements to provide water along with the electricity to all sites. The bathrooms are exceptionally clean. However, they get lots of traffic due to the lack of sewers. The park provides easy access to Milwaukee and the surrounding communities. There are two very nice playgrounds for the young ones. Generally it is very quiet except for an occasional party on the weekends. The hosts do control the noise during quite hours. Lots of locals use the park on the weekends so you can get information on local activities and restaurants. This is our base anytime we are in southeast Wisconsin.

Can't say enough good things about this secluded, well maintained county park campground. The bathrooms are new and immaculately cleaned each morning. They have added water to all the outside sites so now there is multiple electric options and water on all sites. Lots of shade and lots of room between sites. Bike trails and walking areas in the park and in the local neighborhood. Best of all, you can get Danish Kringle right down the street in Racine! Would have been a 10, but like many county parks, no sewer hook-up. There is a convenient dump station, however. Doesn't appear to have any length of stay limits contrary to what's on the web site. Will stay again when in the vicinity. We camped at Cliffside County Park in a Motorhome.
This park is really nice. Large sites, grass cut to proper level and utilities located in the proper area. This is a true gem located so close to a large city. We camped at Cliffside County Park in a Motorhome.
Nice county run park. There is a campground host, although we never saw him in our 2 week stay. Had a few problems with late night partiers in other sites that were not taken care of. Restrooms were cleaned by park staff daily, and grounds were well maintained. Park was almost empty during the week but filled up both weekends we were there. The only other concern is that roads leading to the park are not well signed. We followed the directions in our Trailer Life guide and had no problems. Our GPS wanted to take us down a dead end road every time we came or went, so be careful! We would certainly stay here again and would recommend it to anyone interested in visiting the area. It's 24 miles to Milwaukee and 90 miles to Chicago from here - both places we visited during our stay. We camped at Cliffside County Park in a Motorhome.
Excellent campground! We stayed here one night on the way to Door County. The park is VERY quiet. Campsites are nicely spaced and in great condition. I would have given it a 10 if they had sewer hookups. Will stay here again, maybe for a few nights longer. We camped at Cliffside County Park in a Motorhome.
This is a nice park. I gave it an 8 because it doesn't have full hook-ups, but other then that it was a nice place. It was clean, well taken care of, quiet, large sites (relatively speaking) etc... Being close to Milwaukee it was nice to see the regular police patrols. Super nice bathrooms and showers. Clean, seem new. There's not a whole lot to do in the campground, well, maybe there is, just nothing we were interested in. There were playgrounds for kids, and some really nice tennis courts, and a couple of nice baseball fields. Other then that, there are some trails you can walk on. One trail, about a mile long, takes to a cliff that overlooks Lake Michigan which looks pretty neat. You can also walk to the lake on the local roads and through the neighborhood that boarders the park. Lots of mature trees which is nice for shade, but also kills satellite service for some folks. However, we got about 30 digital channels on our antenna! So, that's good if the weather is bad. Anyway, we'd totally stay there again, nice, basic, quiet.

Excellent county park with large grass spaces. Lots of shade. Brand new restrooms in 2012 that are cleaned twice a day. Nice play areas for the children. Dump station on the site. Will definitely camp here again. We camped at Cliffside County Park in a Motorhome.

This park is such a gem. Located about 1/4 mile from Lake Michigan there is always a nice lake breeze and is cooler than inland. The sites are large, angled for easy back-in. The restrooms are spotless, modern, recently upgraded, with large showers. Most of the park is on reservation, but there is a first-come, first-serve section, which is always appreciated by fulltimers like us who rarely plan too far in advance. Verizon is 4G in this area. Convenient to Racine and Milwaukee. Would stay here anytime. We camped at Cliffside County Park in a Travel Trailer.

Nice county park with lots of trees. Roads are blacktop, sites gravel with shared water hook-ups. Some sites are electric only. Nice playground for children. Would have rated it higher except the shared water hook-up required 2 hoses and no sewer. The name is deceiving, there are no cliffs. We camped at Cliffside County Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice park between Racine and Milwaukee, east of I-94. The sites offer plenty of room and much common area, the sites are level. Campground could use more showers and bathrooms, plus better cleaning. The park offers a large prairie just north of the campground to hike or walk your dogs (off leash). The woods lead down to the 'cliff' to lake Michigan. Access to the lake is in a residential area just south and east of the park. The path to the lake is unimproved an a bit steep but beach reward is worth it, nice long sandy beach. Like other reviewers stated bring a long hose, or 2, for the water hook up. We will use this park again when visiting local family. We camped at Cliffside County Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Love this park! We stayed here for two weeks and enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere. The park was very clean and well-run, and the sites were large and easy to back into. It would be perfect except for the lack of sewer hook-ups. Check out a restaurant called "Oh! Dennis" a mile or so down the highway, if you're into great steaks and ribs.

Most of the sites are 50 amp not the "30" amp that someone previously set. More are being upgraded. Sites 34-40 now have 50 amp service but the map is not updated to show them. Plenty of sites were available without reservations. More sites have water, (a double spigot at the back of every other site). The website has a good layout map but recent improvements are not notated. We had no problem with a 36' MH and car on site 34. Site 34 and 32 have good satellite service, Dish HD, for me. There are a lot of trees but today about 75% of the sites are available. We camped at Cliffside County Park in a Motorhome.
