The negative reviews for Apple Creek have really surprised me. My family has stayed at Apple Creek on several occasions and have had nothing but great experiences. This is very much a family campground, with a playground, warm pool, volleyball net, game room, fishing pond (catch & release), movies, water aerobics, tether ball, planned activities, and free crafts. My kids have also successfully fished in the creek, but didn't catch anything worth keeping. The camp store is very reasonably priced with a large variety and there is a large food selection including free coffee and $6 pizzas. Staff are friendly and work hard to keep the grounds clean. As a parent, I appreciate that staff enforce the speed limit and quiet hours. The sites are the typical size for a private campground, but I would probably choose sites outside the 200 loop as that loop seems a bit more cramped. If you don't want to be close to all the action (kids), you'd be best off staying on the east side of the campground, sites 36-61 and 81-100. There is highway noise but it can be easily masked at night by running a fan. There also are not full hook-ups but they will pump you out for free for longer stays. We camped at Apple Creek Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Highway UU (to the north of the campground) is great for walks/bike rides. At night there are a lot of fireflies along the bridge between site 61 and the cottage. The wi-fi can be a bit spotty when busy but works well in the office area.

This campground has no sewer hook-ups but many long term campers/trailers from Green Bay. It rained while we were there and sewage and toilet paper overflowed from somewhere and covered our area of the campground. There were pay showers but at $37 a night seemed a bit absurd. We left immediately and will never go back there. We only stayed one night even though we had planned to stay longer. We camped at Apple Creek Campground in a Motorhome.

Sites are tight and not level. The dump station is next to several camping spots. Roads are very tight. The restrooms need to be modernized. The showers were dirty and you had to pay extra for them, 25 cents for 7 minutes, so take your quarters. The office and rec room was dark and not very desirable. Will not stay here again.

Rate reflects Passport America discount. If I'd rated this park just after our check in, the rating would have been much lower. Despite the fact that we had reservations, the park seemed unprepared for us. Granted, we were three big-rigs traveling and arriving together, but it took us the better part of an hour to check in and make our way to our site. The young woman in the office seemed quite confused, telling us that our sites were not long enough to accommodate our rigs. We finally walked to the sites and determined that we would all fit. However, getting to the sites took quite an effort. Several of us had to ask other campers to move their vehicles so we could drive all the way through the park, make a loop and squeeze past other RVers parking on a narrow road waiting to check in. Once we finally got situated, the park was fine, although I don't know if we would return to this park if we were in the area again. We camped at Apple Creek Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed here mainly because there wasn't anything else in the area. It is located on a busy road so the traffic noise was heard all night. Our site was what they call a 30 amp with a fifty plug. Some of the long term sites were pretty run down looking. The wi-fi was unusable even though there was an antenna at our site. There was no cable, but we were able to get a couple of channels using our antenna. The price was because it is a Passport America campground. The main reason we would not stay here again was the terrible stench from a nearby paper mill. We camped at Apple Creek Campground in a Motorhome.

My husband, granddaughter, and I camped here due to attending a 50th Wedding Anniversary gathering in the area, and because there were no other camping options available. The campground is clean, they do have many activities for the youngsters, and the heated pool was very nice. The security people buzzing around in their golf carts were friendly and helpful, and needed, given the campers were basically on top of each other. The campground is hugely jam-packed tight, quite uncomfortable for those of us used to camping to get-away from it all. No getting away here. We were at campsite #1, which is right off the County Road, and next to the main driveway, so the traffic noise was constant. Combined with the people noise, I would have preferred to stay home. In the future, unless camping here was necessary, as it was this June, I wouldn't go back. We camped at Apple Creek Campground in a Motorhome.

After reading other reviews, I was a bit skeptical about staying here, but our options were limited in this area at this time of the year. After staying here, however, I think this park has gotten a bit of undue bad press. First, I should point out that we stayed here in April and had one side of the park basically to ourselves. The sites are gravel and relatively level - did have to use boards under the stabilizers mostly for the soft ground this time of the year. There is ample space between sites on the north side of the park. The maintenance crews have been working overtime getting ready for the upcoming camping season, and appear to take very good care of the park and facilities. The host was more than gracious, friendly and helpful upon arrival. Laundry clean and reasonable. Fire ring and picnic tables at each site, as well. When the trees bloom, there will also be ample shade. For the kids there's a pool (not open yet but they were getting it prepared), play structures and a catch and release fishing pond. Very pet friendly. No sewer at site, but a mobile unit comes around Mondays and Thursdays to take care of the dirty work. In addition, a dump station is located on site which we used upon arrival without incident. Small store with groceries, supplies and Packers paraphernalia for sale in office area. There is also a golf course within walking distance, so bring your clubs. Only downside - and it was a big one for us - is that it is right off of the freeway and the noise from the traffic is basically non-stop all hours of the day and night. Other than proximity to the busy road, it's a nicely set up and extremely well maintained park. We would stay here again. We camped at Apple Creek Campground in a Motorhome.

We were very unhappy with this park. The sites were on top of each other, the freeway runs right next to the campground, so the sound of traffic is always surrounding you, and since the campground is close to paper mills - the stench of pulp is in the air. We arrived in the evening and left the next morning, even though we paid for 3 nights. The kids couldn't even use the pool because the people camping next to us said it was over chlorinated and their kids had skin irritations from it. We definitely won't be back.

Poor maintenance. Sites with inoperable water and electric. Sites are close together...no privavcy. Dump station is a joke. Save your money and go somewhere else. We camped at Apple Creek Campground in a Travel Trailer.

When they say no refunds, they mean it. We arrived in rain, the campground was a mud hole, and we were camping by motorcycle, in a tent. To set up would have meant to place the tent in the mud at our assigned site. We did pay in full - we did not stay. The staff member we spoke with was not friendly, but was very firm that if we did not like it, we could pretty much lump it. We did examine the campground and the site, and both were pretty well unacceptable. Maybe a fair weather campground, but if inclement weather is imminent, please stay away. We camped at Apple Creek Campground in a Tent.

We pulled our 12 foot pop-up up to Applecreek on the night of the Packer game. We passed the entrance because it is very very poorly marked and hard to see, coming back after the game was even worse in the dark. When we finally got in and registered we found that we had been assigned the campsite DIRECTLY across from the only dumpstation onsite. The rude teenager in the store told us we couldn't move because they were booked so all day we got to watch everyone pump their tanks. As of the next day we counted 23 other sites we could have been assigned. Our popup and suburban hooked together were longer than the itty bitty sites. The gravel landing pad was so unlevel that we had to put blocks under our landing feet to level the camper out. The "bathroom" house was tiny and consisted of two, stand alone toilets in a very, very dirty, bug infested room with no doors and no sinks, just a bottle of hand sanitizer. The entire campground smelled of sewage the entire time. The "pond" is tiny and badly needs to be dredged, it is slimy, smelly and there is a sunken boat at one end, covered in slim and half sticking out of the water. The pier is falling into the water and the kids play area badly needs maintenance. The main shower house had PAY showers so make sure you take a pocket full of quarters. The showers were so dirty and full of hair and dead bugs that I waited to get home to shower. There had to be AT LEAST 40 large spiders that had made their residence in the women's bathroom. So many that my niece REFUSED to use it. The staff was on a lawn mower at 7:45am zipping by our camper over and over, and the major highway next to the grounds was very loud. The store was decently stocked, but expensive even as camp stores go. The only nice thing about this stinky, dirty campground was the pool, it was clean and warm. I will never camp here again and wouldn't take my children here even if you paid me. Next time I'll drive home to Milwaukee after the game instead of camping here. We camped at Apple Creek Campground in a Tent Trailer.

Park was quiet until the fireworks went off on Friday night at 10:30. Had a short back in space. Showers were pay. Many people have to circle through the park to get to the dump. Poor layout. Child oriented. Park pond was disgusting and mosquito's were plentiful. PA rate is not enough to get us to stay here again. We camped at Apple Creek Campground in a Travel Trailer.

I was prepared for tight, muddy after it rains, no sewer, no wi-fi, PA rate, nice folks... thanks to previous reviews. In addition I found 30amp service with 50amp plugs (labeled as 50amp site, with extra charge; you can fool some of the people, I guess. We changed sites), no breakers at the site, and pay showers (for WATER, not just hot water). There were three male showers for 130 sites (lots of insects in shower room). That is my definition of “nickel and dimeing”. One dump station within the park, surrounded by sites. We camped at Apple Creek Campground in a Motorhome.

Would have rated it higher but two things are major drawbacks to us. One is no sewer hookup. They'll pump you out for free if you're there for a week and they also have a dump station. We were there for 4 days and it cost $10 to get a pump out. The other problem is that the place becomes a bit of a mud hole after rain. Sites are gravel with grass. Overall the park is a little worn but clean and maintained. There are a lot of permanent sites but they're neat. Part of the park backs up on Hwy 41 which can be noisy though it quiets down at night. We camped at Apple Creek Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
