14 Parks near Chilton, Wisconsin
Jul 2016 - $37.00
This campground was the July monthly choice for our local camp group and the transient area of the park where we camped was wide open, treeless, bordered by a soybean field and with a great view overlooking Lake Winnebago. There are 38 sites available for transients. The rest of the park is primarily seasonal and their sites are located in a heavily wooded area. Given the warmth of the days, some shade would have been nice but there was a steady unobstructed breeze that helped cool us off. The campground's utility layout is puzzling at best. All the sites in our area had a pedestal located near the front corner on the curb side of the rig if you backed in. It's like they were designed for a coach park. The option we chose was to pull forward into the site so the utilities were on the proper side but you had to drive onto the grass to get your rig setup properly on the pad. There was plenty of room for that maneuver at every site. Evidently the owners don't mind so most everyone in the group did likewise. Those who didn't, ran power and water under the rig to the other side. There is no sewer, but they have two dump stations conveniently located side by side as you exit. The pads are gravel and most of the sites will require varying degrees of leveling due to the sloping terrain in this area of the campground. Patios are grass. Site length is very generous and site width is incredible with 60+' between rigs. Water pressure was good at around 45psi. 50a electric was stable and heavily used due to the heat. The park is geared to families with an on-site restaurant, a pool (always full of youngsters when we were there), put-put golf, disc golf, game room and lots of golf carts. The park was full the weekend we stayed and some of our neighbors pushed the limits of the quiet time rule by an hour. Once they left on Sunday everything was peaceful and serene. We would come back to this campground again but during the week. - Born2Roam

The park was very nice. We found out about this campground at the local RV show. We camped there the last week in April so nothing was really open in the campground but we still had fun. We loved the dog park, our dog seemed to love it. There was a lot of room for him to run around off leash. This is a nice change. The view from the campground was wonderful overlooking the lake from the top of the hill. We would stay again. I do wish they had full hook up sites but can't have it all. It does have a bar and restaurant on site and hope to come back while it is open . - splicer

Overall, this is a nice park. Easy to get into the sites, and the staff is friendly. The sites are open without any trees, but are large with plenty of room to spread out and enjoy yourself. The site had a great view of Lake Winnebago, and the sunsets were amazing. The negative would be the live band that played Saturday night, as they were very loud. We were several rows over from where they were playing and still had to yell to hear each other. They also went almost 30 minutes longer than they were slated to go (they were supposed to end at 10pm). We would stay here again. - socerbruse

Lovely little campground! Electric sites, BYO fresh water, although you can fill your tank at the camper registration/store. We stayed on Site 6, couldn't see the lake from our site, but the other sections had some views of the lake. Lots of nice landscaping and playgrounds for kids. Bathrooms/showers were clean, bring your quarters for the showers. Rangers were visible and polite. Fire pits were located kind of away from the site, which we liked a lot. Store had a few necessities. Dump station an extra $3. Some trails which we didn't do this time, but will try next time. Will definitely come back again. No real website for this place, you have to call to make reservations. And they are pretty busy, hard to get in. - CramerCamper

Very nice park. Well maintained, excellent shower and bathroom facilities. The campground was full but you don't feel like your crowded. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Enjoyed the sunsets over Lake Winnebago. Only complaint is there was a group camped next to us, seemed to be a family reunion, who took our picnic table, thank you very much. Would definitely stay here again. - davetro

Hi... just wanted to update to the other reviews. High Cliff finally was able to get the money to upgrade the electrical sites from 30 amp to 50 amp now. No more tripping breakers! Also the bathrooms got a good sprucing up with new paint, new flooring, better showers and fixtures and sinks. Much nicer. As good as they can get on the limited state budget. Note.. do NOT follow GPS to the park, it leads to an old entrance that has been closed for over 10 years and is not usable. Take 114 just west of Sherwood and go south on State Park Road to the park. Follow signs. We especially love this park because it is shaded and cool in the summer months. - kareninthewoods

We stayed in site 92 while our friends camped in 90. Both are in the outer left loop. They are pretty far from the only shower room/rest rooms, but pit toilets are not far. Overflow parking is directly across the road from 92 but while we were there, we were the only ones to use it (for our toad).
Both sites are beautifully tree-filled, which is true of the entire campgrounds. Our sites were level and most others seemed level too. There are double sites for those wanting to share a site.
Being on the outer extreme of the campground, we had easy access to the walking/bike trail and rode to a lookout each night to watch the sunset. It was an easy 5 minute ride and was walkable too. The hiking trails are easily accessible too. The Lime Kiln Trail can be muddy, so wear sturdy shoes.
The campground is quiet, peaceful and clean. The bathrooms are cleaned daily between 12:30 and 2 pm and always looked neat. I would prefer each shower stall have more room to change within the stall but there is one that offers privacy if you are willing to wait for it.
Do not leave out any food or unsecured garbage as you may have raccoon visitors when the sun goes down.
We can't wait to go back! - We_love_truck_camping

Camped at site #109. Great site, but 30 amp power kept tripping so we were forced to run extension cords into our RV using the two, 20 amp outlets. The park scenery is great, but the electrical problems (which I've written about before) continue. There's hope. High Cliff may get all its electric sites upgraded to 50 amp next year if there's enough money in the state budget. Fingers crossed. - zulu

Chose this campground as it was rated highly by a friend. Owner was arrogant, pricey for what you get. Had to buy wood to get a grill vs a fire ring.
Charged for showers: 3 minutes = 50 cents.
To clean fish: 3 to 4 dollars.
And 5 dollars to dump.
Only thing going for this campground was the view. Won't be back. - M and B

Sites were unlevel and gravel. Owner made it plain there were no discounts honored. We stayed in pull-through, as we did not want to disconnect tow. Our area had porta potties that were in horrible shape and the smell was intolerable. Electric hookups were in very bad shape and tripped our breakers when we plugged in. Stayed here one night as we were on the road. Beautiful scenery right on the water, but had quite a bit of high grass. This is more of fishing/camping site. Showers and main building were in OK shape. - PTurn85

We stayed here over Memorial Day weekend, so we should consider ourselves to even find a camping spot on a holiday weekend. When we arrived (9:10 PM) the office at already closed (9:00) for the night. The problem is they do not have any kind of night check-in procedure unlike any of the 50+ campgrounds we have stayed at over the last five years. The office is located in the owners house, so they were quite upset that we bothered them after the office had closed 10 minutes earlier. After we checked in they gave us a map and wished us luck. We had to find the site ourselves in the dark because the "office was closed." Parking was challenging because the sites are very close together and the roads have very tight corners. The lake flies were absolutely terrible and swarmed around us by the thousands. We had a three night reservation, but left left a day early because doing anything outside was not pleasant. We did not try the bathrooms because the walk was too far with all of the lake flies. On a positive note, our neighbors were friendly, the power was reliable, the water was OK, and we had one of the few full hookup sites. Overall, we pretty much disliked the campground and would not stay here again. - User3641

A pleasant surprise - CG with a 4200 ft landing strip. Fly in or RV in!! Nice setting in wooded area with an unusual positioning of sites - mostly good. Not a row after row! Position of water and electric boxes shared by 2 (electric) or 4 (water) is awkward but ok - maybe needing an extension. Dump station is easily accessible. We stayed here 1 night in a class B MH - no slides or toad. Showers are clean and very usable. We would stay here again! - KAZIMIRA

Found this campground after finding and visiting Tourist Information and picking up brochure (out of date - listed E/W at $24). We paid $30. Varying sizes of grassy sites "scattered" in among trees. Fire Ring - Picnic Table. Very peaceful setting. We only stayed one night. Did not use facilities so cannot comment. We would stay again if in the area. - DCM/JMB

The lights in the shower are on a motion sensor and shut off half way through our showers. The showers are in the main building at the front of the campground and can be a long walk from a campsite. There are additional ones that were more primitive further into the campground. There is lots of room to maneuver to dump tanks. Several of the campsites are centered around a single electrical post and we had to back up fairly close to others to make our extension cord reach. It is a pretty place - farmland - and lots of trees. - suerover

We stayed in the 50 amp, W/E overnight site with our Thousand Trails discount. The site was long an flat. Roads in the park are extremely narrow, and all one way. Uncomfortable driving through in the motor home. The park was mostly annual sites. People and staff were friendly. Facilities were clean and well maintained. Good satellite and Verizon. We would stay here again when in the area. - Deniselg53
Jul 2015 - $1.00
The rate reflects Thousand Trails Membership. There was no additional charge for 50 amp service. This campground has 667 sites. Out of those, 454 are occupied or for sale seasonal sites. 48 sites are for tents and the balance of 165 are overnight or "premium" overnight sites. I believe the "premium" is with septic. Some of the overnight sites are pretty small and would not accommodate larger units. There are 22 larger pull-through sites. There is no shade in the larger area however the temperatures were in the 70s most of the time we were here. Plenty of shade trees in other areas. We camped in a 34' rigand had plenty of room in the pull-through section. I would stay here again. - krisbw

The park itself is nice.It is a really big park and has mostly seasonal sites.It has 3 pools outside movie screen and outside stage for bands.The people where nice and the staff was helpful.I was lucky enough to have a golf cart to get around the park being that the from where I was everything was uphill.We had water and electric only but the bonus is they do have cable hook ups.Cons - The noise from the race track can get annoying after a few days but eventually you seem to get used to it.There where trap shooters around somewhere we kept hearing guns fire.There was a smell from the full hook up sites after about 3 days there .The plastic tanks they use must have been getting full.It is kind of expensive for what you get but if you take advantage of everything they have going on you will have a blast . - splicer

We arrived for the EAA Air Show and stayed for 8 nights. You must be an EAA member to use the campground. Check-in was efficient. We were told to go to the right and pick any 20 X 30 foot of lawn we wanted. We found a patch of lawn between two trees that provided some shade. There are no services unless you chose to purchase an electric and water site for $67.00 a night. This is the campground if you want to see the EAA Air Show without moving your car. There is a multi lane dump station and numerous fresh water fill up stations. Tips: bring a gray water dump container, a generator for power, rope to mark your space, stakes, and containers to haul fresh water. - travelcouple

This is a specialized campground open for EAA's Air Venture during July. If your looking for a resort with lots of amenities this is not it! It's dry camping with the friendliest bunch of aviation nuts that you will ever meet! This year we arrived three days before the start of Air Venture and the campground was about half full. By the opening day it was close to capacity. This year according to EAA officials was the first time ever, that the campground was full to capacity. They have installed several new restrooms and showers so that helped with the huge crowds. But, with 40,000 campers things can get hectic. The Port-a-poties near our rig were pumped twice a day and kept fresh and clean. Fresh water and pump-outs are available at your site for $20.00 for each service or you can drive to the dump station. When it's dry it does get dusty, but this year the rains kept the dust to a minimum and in our area mud was never a problem. Considering this is a once a year event and that the entire operation from the check-in to check-out is all staffed by volunteers, I think you find that Camp Scholler is a pretty amazing place. After all, it's really all about the airplanes! Also: the friendly bunch of aviation enthusiasts that will be parked next to you. - happyflyer

The event is great, but the campground is poor. Actually it is a meadow packed with thousands of campers. The portable toilet units are clean if the company instructed to clean it doesn’t forget it (which happened several times in our area). There are only two good things with this campground: most sites are level and you get free Wi-Fi. On the other hand it is dusty when it is dry and a big mud hole when it rains. It is loud from Highway 41 all night long. The rate of $21 does not include the EAA membership (min. $40 per year) that is required to go on this campground. You must be an aviation aficionado to go to this campground. - RVer from Oregon

We went for the EAA fly-in. It was 92 and the breaker to our campsite kept blowing. I don't know how many times we had to reset the breaker. Didn't bring generator as we thought we would have electricity. Didn't use showers or bathrooms but looked very down from the outside. Don't stay here unless you have no other choice. - NINA W
Aug 2014 - $42.00
Pretty nasty place, and terribly overpriced. The site was fairly level, which is a good thing since my jacks would have sunk out of sight in the mud had I used them. The bathroom was so old and run down that I didn't even bother to look at the showers. They had recently placed some gravel over the mud at our site. Result: muddy gravel! Our motorhome tires got a nice coating of mud as we pulled in. My impression of reading reviews of parks in the Oshkosh area is that there don't seem to be many good ones - and I'm not sure why not. Anyway, we will definitely not be coming back to this one! - LowesTravels

Campground isn't much to look at as it's just set in some farmland. Sites are either grass or gravel, reasonably wide and level, but a little short. If crowded it might be a little tight for larger rigs. Power was a major problem when we were there. It wasn't crowded but my voltage would drop very low when my AC turned on. On a few occasions it caused my Progressive protection to cut out the power. I had to run my generator in order to cook dinner in the microwave. There was supposed to be cable TV but our site didn't have hookup for it. Didn't matter as there was good over the air TV as well as a clear shot for satellite. Wi-Fi didn't have very good range but I was able to get it to work with a directional antenna. Speed was acceptable. Small playground for kids but not much else there or nearby. We stayed here one night to check it out with thoughts of staying here for Airventure. - glenthompson

Just what we needed, a place to overnight with 50 amp & water. Friendly service. Good Verizon signal, WiFi available but didn't use. - dmkimm

This is a very small park on the side of the highway. I think most of the business is for the EEA Fly In as it is right across the street from the airport. I visited about a week after the event and stayed for 3 weeks. I had to drive to the main building once a week to fill up with water and dump. There is electric at all of the sites. This place is truly Big Rig friendly easy in and easy out. They do offer waste buddy service for $5, but I had to go and fill with water anyways. The owner gave me a break on the fee because of my long stay which he is really not set up for. I think mostly it is designed for short overnight stays. Plenty of shopping and restaurants are close. This is not a resort, but an EEA event campground and an overnight campground. I gave an 8 rating because of the friendliness of the owner and the rate discount. It is real hard to find any campgrounds in the area with full hookups. - startech

Rate is PPA. Lots of kids, but if you have them, there's lots to do. Connections were poorly planned, and most hookups are in the wrong location. Fishing lake is just a stagnant pool of water in a field. Lots of permanent residents. This is a family themed park, with arcades, movies, outdoor areas, and pool. No Wi-Fi, except a pay log-in that we did not use. We would probably look for another park if in the area again, but was ok for a night. - Matt&Nessa

This is a very popular campground for local people with many families staying here for weeks during the summer season. We were staying here for a week during the PGA Championship tournament being held near Sheboygan. We were greeted at the entrance gate and were provided with information and site location from the gatehouse person (a very friendly college-aged woman). We had problems from the beginning as we could not find our electric or water hookups at the site. We had requested and paid for full hookups. In addition, the site was an interior, sloping site between transient sites and seasonal sites. While I waited at the site, my wife took our tow vehicle to the park office, about 400 yards down the access road. She returned several minutes later with the park's general manager who was very helpful in showing me where the "missing" hookups were: shared with several of the seasonal sites. I let him know that the site was unacceptable to us (which had been assigned by the phone rep when we made our reservations months earlier). He said he understood and assigned us to a far superior site near the center of the park and near all the amenities offered. The other negative was that the park had a plague of mosquitos! You could not leave your RV without repellent on. We left at the end of the week with bites all over us. For families the park may be a terrific place, with many, many activities for kids. It's also a NASCAR-themed park for people interested in that. We will not stay here again. - Jim J

We reserved a spot here for our Spring Vacation. Even though we specifically requested a 50A site, upon arriving, we were put into a 30A one. The spot is slightly uneven, and is missing quite a bit of gravel. The water hookup is shared, and needs to be routed under the RV (It is readily apparent that this RV park (really cannot call it a 'resort') is geared towards 'seasonal' and/or 'permanent' residents - the majority of the spots are not available for a nightly or a weekly stay. Wi-fi signal is 50-70%, apparently requires $$, but the landing web site does not even come up. We were not able to use the Wi-fi; stuck with our Verizon Broadband card. DirecTV satellite is working well. In summary, extremely beautiful area, with tons of 'outdoorsy stuff' to do, but this park is definitely not a resort. If you will be using the park as a 'home base' to explore the area, mostly sleeping in your unit, a good choice; if you're looking for a nice park to stay around your rig & relax, we'd advise against this park. - k9amz
