I agree with the other recent reviews. Wifi actually worked very well for us and the park was almost full. Typical gravel and grass pull through set-up. Owners very friendly. Fenced dog park plus big mowed fields of grass to play fetch or for the kids to play. Just seemed a little pricey for what it is but doesn't seem to be many options around Madison. We camped at Madison KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Don't miss the Farmer's Market in Madison on Saturdays in season. Producer only allowed and it is the best I've seen anywhere! Consider buying your cheese there instead of the cheese store right by the KOA. Walk through the capitol while you're at the market!

Very nice park with friendly and helpful staff. Sites are level with well groomed gravel and nice grassy areas between. Interior roads are narrow but no problem to navigate with big rig. OTA-TV is so strong antennas don't need to be extended. Wifi is mostly okay depending on how strength of the device's pick-up. Convenient to I-39/90/94 with low to moderate noise. Didn't bother us inside or out. Nice dog runs. Only negative is the price. We camped at Madison KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Fantastic Woodman's Food Market in Sun Prairie, 10.5 miles away, with a huge selection of craft beer including New Glarus which is only available in Wisconsin. Best stocked grocery we've ever seen with excellent prices. Highly recommend doing the free tour of the magnificent Wisconsin State Capitol.

A good location right off about a quarter mile off highway and easy drive to Madison. Typical KOA. Gravel roads and sites, grassy patio area with picnic table. You need to ask for a fire ring and they'll bring one to your site. Sites are close together, long enough for big rig and tow. Sites are level. Utilities worked fine. nice store with a good selection of groceries and RV supplies. Staff was very friendly. They were o.k. with us receiving mail and packages. Within walking distance of a half dozen fast food places and a cheese shop. We camped at Madison KOA in a Motorhome.

Sites are typical of KOA, pretty close together but enough room to open our slides. Office personnel were friendly and helpful and check in was quick and easy. We booked ahead of time and online. Sites are pull through and long enough for us to unhitch, barely, but it worked. Good location for easy on and off the interstate. Nice size dog park that was clean but water faucets were off. With highs in the 90's they should have been on. We camped at Madison KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Park is run by very nice friendly folks. It is patrolled and kept clean. Roads are gravel and narrow. Also not long enough. The place has a nice dog run and some space/lawn between sites. It is a $40 dollar a night camp. We camped at Madison KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

My July 2015 and 2016 reviews give a more detailed (and still accurate) review of this park. It still has mostly pull through, FHU sites, but no cable TV. This is a good KOA with the typical KOA facilities and amenities. We camped at Madison KOA in a Motorhome.

First Impression: Nice roadside presentation. Spacious sites. Easy to find. Safety: no concerns - peaceful. Access: Exit 126 off I-39, go east about 4 blocks, turn right. Good signage, access road in good condition. GPS took us right in. Office: Store with some food items, snacks, RV necessities, souvenirs, beer/wine/liquor/soda. Credit cards accepted. Online reservations available. Facilities: Pool, no spa, no fitness room. No rec center. Laundry room not inspected. Restrooms/showers not inspected. Propane sales. Big playground. Fenced dog run. Campground: Not in a flood plain. Roads are gravel in good condition with "be careful" turns and no overhead obstacles. Big rig and coach friendly. Sites are all spacious, pull-through and back-in. Grassy tent area. No yurts. Cabins and camper trailers for rent. Sites are level, spacious with grass and some trees. Utilities at mid-rig, sewer at rear. Electric 20/30/50; no meters. Adequate water pressure and taste. Sewer pipe is 4" unthreaded, about 3" above ground level. No patios. New picnic tables. Office will provide fire rings when requested. Good satellite views. No cable TV. OTA TV found 23 channels. Free Wi-Fi with excellent coverage and bandwidth. Verizon phone at 5-bars. No railroad or aircraft but very noticeable interstate noise. Recycle bins. Bug Report: No insect issues (late May). Runners: CG roads ok for running, no fitness room so no treadmills. Yoga: grass is very thick and would make mats "lumpy". Conclusion: Too far north of Madison and too pricey to make a good destination CG. Convenient for a night-over when heading to or returning from the Wisconsin Dells. We camped at Madison KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here on our very 1st night camping in an RV.. that we had just purchased hours earlier. This was a calculated move on my part, as I figured a KOA would have the most "old retired guys" floating around, eager to show this youngster how I was doing everything wrong. *grin* We were not disappointed! Despite it being a busy, and totally full holiday weekend, the very helpful staff sent someone out who walked me through all the steps and hookups of our new rig, with lots of experienced advice thrown in. Exactly what I'd hoped for! The KOA itself is of the "rack'em & stack'em" variety, with simple rows of big-rig oriented spots stacked side by side with a strip of grass between them. You won't be enjoying any views or privacy here. It was however very clean and quiet. The row along the side of the grounds for tent camping was right by the 24-hour floodlit public storage facility. I'm sure the tenters were delighted. The grounds also offered a very plain but clean "dog play" area. Not fancy but got the job done. We enjoyed the "Cheese Chalet" right outside the entrance (this is Wisconsin after all) and the wife was happy for the fast food across the street just in case our 1st time cooking in the RV went horribly wrong. (it did not). We only stayed one night and headed out to a state park for the rest of the weekend, which is more our style. Location was very convenient to Madison and the Dells. We camped at Madison KOA in a Motorhome.

The Cheese Chalet next door is worth a stop. Giant cow for a photo-op, and a giant pink elephant for another on the other side of the highway.

Easy off and on to freeway. Clean CG. Not crowded at all. Rain all 7 days we were there but the grounds drained off the water pretty good. Good hosts. Easy process to check in. I think all the sites are pull-thru. Gravel and level. Sites would be somewhat close when CG is full. Easy to navigate around the CG with a big rig. We camped at Madison KOA in a Motorhome.

When in Wisconsin you should buy lots of chesse. In DeForest go to Pick and Save grocery for great cheese selection. Not cheap but cheaper than the cheese store by the CG. Also go to a Friday night fish fry

This is a well-managed but charmless KOA. It is very convenient to Hwy.
39 and reasonably close to Madison. (it took us 25-30 minutes) The maintenance is excellent. The sites are arranged in concentric arcs and all sites are full hook-up and pull-through. There is grass between the sites but it's pretty beat up from people driving on all the edges. The office is efficient and there is an ok laundry, a small camp store, and a nice kids' playground. We camped at Madison KOA in a Motorhome.

Sites laid out in an arc, with lots of room between sites, but with the narrow roads you can't help but tow thru the grass when leaving. Good water pressure and wifi, wide open for satellite access. Road noise from the Interstate, but a good place to stay. We camped at Madison KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Very clean, well maintained park where all sites are level and are pull thru's. We had car repairs in town and had to extend into a weekend. The manager and all the staff could not have been nicer. Very convenient to Madison and the Dells. Absolutely would stay here again. We camped at Madison KOA in a Motorhome.

This KOA is spacious, easy to find, super staff that worked to get our traveling companions parked right next to us. This was our second visit here and we would return. All utilities were good...power, water and sewer connections. Close to a liquor store and grocery store as well as restaurants. We camped at Madison KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed over the 4th of July weekend and the campground was completely full. The campground is easy to get to from the interstate, but interstate noise is minimal. Interior roads are usually easy to navigate, although the crowded conditions made it a little more challenging. Wi-Fi did not work well, but all other utilities were fine. This was our second overnight stay here, and we would stay again. We camped at Madison KOA in a Motorhome.

In the past 10 years, this park has become our preferred RV park in the Madison/Dells/Baraboo area because it meets our wants (pool, satellite friendly sites, usually reliable Internet, and lots of fast food within walking distance) better than other area parks. The majority of the sites are full-hookup, pull through, fairly level, decent size, on gravel pads. The main building contains the office, a typical KOA store, and older but clean bathrooms and laundry facilities. There is no cable TV, but most sites appear to be satellite friendly and there are numerous Madison stations available via antenna. In addition to the small pool, the is a playground and horseshoe pits. As usual, the staff we dealt with were friendly and helpful. We camped at Madison KOA in a Motorhome.
