23 Parks near Coloma, Wisconsin
Jul 2016 - $40.00
They charge an extra $5 a day for electricity when it's hot. They only accept cash or checks.
Many of the sites are seasonal or for full time residents. There were only 3 pull-through sites with full hookups and these were more than adequate.
They have a bar/lounge on the grounds that draws local residents as well as guests.
You have to have a reason for coming to Coloma, or just passing through. The business sector is slowly disappearing. There are small nearby lakes for recreation.
The new owners have been there for a couple of years now and are slowly making improvements. - DJanis

I stayed here 3 1/2 weeks. Campground is very clean, grass was kept cut and weed walked. The owners are friendly and helpful. I used the laundry room: it was clean and inexpensive. The pool was clean but no shade. - kampincrazy

The folks who run this park are apparently former RVers who know what is important from the customers point of view. They manage a park that is partly full time residents and a few transient sites. Overall this park is beautifully kept up and our overnight site was first class. The Utilities, EWS, were all new and were easily accessible. - Peter in Arizona

We only stayed one night. The sites are level and spacious with a few trees. . We were almost directly across from the dog park which was clean and spacious also. That is a big draw for us so we were happy to see it. We did not see or use the pool due to the rain. They gave (train) type rides for the kids and (adults). Cute. I walked the dogs in the morning in the large field behind the dog park. They have a very small store in the registration building. They picked up your trash if you placed it out in front of your site. - Sunnie-Wheelhouse

Park looks very new, is well maintained, and has good security. Staff made great efforts to accommodate us in a site that would work with our rig. site was level and spacious. Dog exercise area was clean and big enough for our corgis to run a bit. Also, a spring-fed pond was fun for both us and the dogs to cool off.
The bathroom situation was strange. Although very clean, only one bathroom/shower was available after hours because the other was inside the pool area and locked. There are 2 other bathroom/showers available that are ADA, but you have to pay for them: not sure if this is even legal.
Downsides were some highway noise, and very bright halogen lights on the buildings that didn't allow much darkness if you're a star gazer.
We would stay again but not for a vacation: more as a stopover. - Fran in Wisconsin

We came to celebrate our son's birthday and we all had a wonderful time! The mosquitos were bad this year, but we still enjoyed our stay. The kids loved all of the activities and the people were all friendly and helpful. We already reserved our vacation for this year! - millfam

The mosquito's are HORRIBLE! They do not spray for them, we could not stand to be outside at all (we live on a farm and are used to mosquito's but this was the worst we have ever experienced). There is no maintenance done to the roads, no gravel and when it rains there is water covering the roads, sites and all of the sites are sand. This makes for a big mess. We have a 28' travel trailer that barley made it into our site and we had to back down the driveway just to get out. If a tree falls they just leave the rotting stumps and you have to navigate around them. There is no TV reception and you must pay to use all of the outdoor play areas except for the swing sets. The showers looked terrible from what I could see. This is the first and last time we will be staying here. - Bree08

This is a very nice, mostly seasonal-sites, which were all very well kept and clean. Family oriented, lots of kids activities. We stayed here for a 1 night stopover, and had a pull thru site. It was so nice in the middle and could see the kids playing in the activity area which is centrally located. Lots for the kids to do. We stayed there on a Friday night and it was pretty quiet, despite our site being close to the lodge/bar it wasn't annoying at all and quiet after 10:30. They have a nice store and lodge with a full menu and a bar/game room, with a separate game room area for the kids located near the activity area. 20 minutes to the Wisconsin Rapids, Wal-mart and several RV dealerships nearby. - ready2upgrade

I am not one to leave poor reviews, but this place was not good. We stayed here while visiting relatives in the area. We had reservations for 2 days and we stayed one day and left. We had a full hook-up site reserved and paid for in advance. We arrived and checked in and went back to our site and the was only about 35' long and that was being generous. They knew when I made the reservation that I had a 38' 5th wheel, it was also on the paperwork at check in and they still assigned me the site. After sitting at the site and trying to figure out how a trailer was to even park in here, one of the office staff drove out and pointed out to me how they generally park in here. He comment "you have a big unit for this site." I went back to the office and picked a different site, got a water and electric from a full hook up we were originally to have that was paid for. I ask them if there was any difference in price and they said it was about $20 difference , but there would be a $10 site transfer charge and it would all have to be approved through the manager who would come and talk to me the next day. He never hunted me down to talk to me and never called me on my cell phone the number in which they had from my original reservation. I was very disappointed in there service and all the amenities that they were supposedly to have that we did not see. It appeared that the park was not very well maintained. The pool was nice, but had an awful lot of chlorine in it. I will not be returning and am still waiting on that phone call for my refunded difference from the manager. - PackerFanRick

So nice to find full hookups in this part of Wisconsin. Well thought out park in the pine trees. Easy access from main road. Roads in campground are hard gravel and wide with no trees hindering access for big rigs. All 104 sites are spacious and long pull-thrus, full hookups and angled for easy access. Two RVs share hookups, but the sites are very wide so this is not an issue. Good Sam has given this park its highest ratings for a campground with no store or office and bathhouses with cinder block walls. Wifi is in the works but not available right now. Manager is working very hard to make this a 5-star facility. The dump site is far removed from the camp sites with excellent, wide, level access. This is a regional trapshooting facility so it may get noisy on the weekends, but while we were there only two people came to shoot. Town and a casino are about 8 miles away. - mhollis1

We actually did not have an opportunity to stay at this campground, but we stopped in and meet the owners and toured the park. First of all, the owners are wonderful. We meet them, talked with them for 30 minutes, and they hugged us before we left. Great attitude. Second, if you like to shoot trap, this is your campground. They hosted the state trap meet this year and have a huge WTA Shooting Facility adjacent to the campground. In fact, the campground is owned by the Wisconsin Trapshooting Association. If the sound of trap shooting is not for you, don't stay here. Lastly, There are ATV trails near by. There is on site laundry. Fire rings. Sites are 45x80. Of you are looking for a full hook up campground just south of Wisconsin Rapids, this is a great option. - JaycoJoanRick

This is a very nice County owned park. Very nice large sites. Ours was very level. We were next to the water. Staff is very nice. The only thing that would make it better would be sewer hook ups. No big deal though. There is a very nice boat launch, also decent dock slips you can rent if available. Nice views of the lake with a very nice sunset. We had enough room on our site for our tow vehicle and another vehicle. There is a lot for boat trailers too. We camped in a 32 door travel trailer. - jimmbo407

This county campground is located on a large, beautiful lake and is quite popular with people living in the area. The price reflects a weekly rate. Most of the sites are leased seasonally but a few of the best sites (along the road by Castle Rock Lake), as well as other nearby sites are set aside and can be reserved for up to two week stays. I think I'd call ahead to check for availability rather than just show up, especially on a summer weekend. Most of the sites are level grassy spots, but several of the short term sites are nice gravel sites. There are no sewer hookups anywhere in the campground but there is a dump station. There are a variety of spots with one section in a pine tree filled area and other grassy sites in partial to full sun. One thing I noticed was that the electric pedestals and water hookups are often in odd configurations with outlets for multiple campers and often requiring extensions cords and hoses. There's a nice playground, volleyball court, sandy beach, boat launch with rentable slips, and a waterfront tent-only area. There's a stocked camp store and modern restrooms with coin operated showers. The staff is friendly and helpful. We had one problem that you might want to know about. On a hot Saturday afternoon in the full park our electrical management system reported a low voltage of 102 volts and shut the electric down to the camper. The voltage coasted between 102 to 105 volts for about four hours. Around 7:00 that evening the voltage began to rebound and we were good to go for the rest of our stay. I think it would be really hard to get satellite TV in the wooded sites, but elsewhere in the campground it should be doable in most sites. Our Verizon 4G was solid. I think we'd return to this campground. The lake is beautiful and, if one can snag one of the sites along the lake, it's a great spot for a visit to the area. - nazpaz

We stayed in Site 1 which was right on the lake. Was a bit breezy at times but no bugs. Other sites away from the water are surrounded by trees. So you have your pick of type of site. Loved this place. - User3521

Petenwell is a County Park, but over half the sites were taken by seasonal campers. Some of the campers had obviously been there a while, making the campground look rundown. The campground is divided into two sections. The older section is where you find most of the seasonal sites. Of the available sites remaining, a few are reservable. There are very few sites available on the lake shore of Lake Petenwell (a huge lake by the way). Most of those are already taken. So realistically, if you are going to camp here, you will end up in the treed part of the campground. The shade there is nice, the bugs aren't (including mosquitoes). There is a newer expansion area that we would have stay in if we had known about it. It was definitely not as full, a lot less seasonal sites, and easy access to the shore of the lake.
Some sites have water and 50 amp electric, some don't, so ask. The main roads are paved, the rest are dirt. The sites can be grass if you are not under the trees, dirt if you are. The campground can accept big rigs, but you have to be careful about what site you choose. We ended up giving up our reserved site because we couldn't fit. We ended up across the street that we could fit into. The staff was very accommodating about us moving, friendly too!
Bathrooms are ok, nothing to cheer about. Showers require quarters to operate. The beach was very nice, the marina excellent. The playground in the expansion area was new.
You can get Verizon 4G in the park, but it varied upon where you were. I ended up using my cell phone booster part of the time. A family member had an smart phone from one of the smaller local carriers and could only get a signal if she stood in the middle of the park. There were 6 OTA television stations.
All in all, if you go here, I would to the newer expansion area over the older area. But I doubt if we will ever go back to this campground. - cmgoeke

Very nice park. No four wheelers racing through the park. Very nice family and fishing park. Clean, seems to be well managed. Normally do not stay in a county park, but this is a diamond in the ruff for sure. Will come back or sure. - Camping Somewhere

We camped here in June of 08'...Park was INFESTED with ticks! We set up our tent and equipment and then took it all down and left in 4 hours. If you stood still you would have ticks crawling all over you. My poor dog had over 20 ticks we had to remove off him. The site was on the shore which would have been cool if you could enjoy it. Mosquito's were bad too but the ticks were unbelievable. - cnacamper

We stayed on a group site for about 2 hours before we all decided to pack up and go. I realize that this is not the parks fault but if you go here bring A LOT of mosquito repellent. We were outside a matter of about 20 to 30 minutes and came home with mosquito bites everywhere. Also, the group sites where we stayed were very difficult to find. The map we were given by the park had highlighted directions but the directions given did not match what the street signs to the sights said. Beautiful park but way too many mosquitoes for us. - Jason & Jennifer

This is a five year old campground with the promise of exspansion in the near future. No, they don`t have a pool or even being located on the shores of Lake Petenwell, but they are only one mile from the Tenth st. boat landing and beach. If you are tired of the hustle and bustle of the larger campgrounds, then, just maybe this is the campground that you should check out. The lots are flat and seem to be laid out fairly well. - traveling faemer
