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

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

A very nice family park not far from I-41 (about 1 .4 miles). Rate was for July 4th weekend and we "lucked" out to get a site on Friday before weekend before reserved camper came in. Nice pool, okay WiFi, zero TV reception!! Wonder why several CGs we have been in this trip have no hot water at BR sink - I enjoy shaving in the CG BRs early am, but not with cold water. - KAZIMIRA

Nightly rates were increased $10 per night during the nearby Oshkosh "AirVenture."
No cable TV and "wifi" access was sporadic.
Our site was located adjacent to the dump station so we got a good whiff of nasty smells each time someone dumped their RV and especially when the local waste contractor pumped out the holding tanks.
Site was on an incline, which required leveling blocks. The grassy area around the site was also uneven and required moving the picnic table several times.
The interior roads are dirt, which caused extremely dusty conditions whenever a vehicle passed.
The pool & spa were too close so we had to listen to screaming and yelling children each evening. - grandflic

This park has a lot of things for kids that we do not use. The staff is great and the sites are semi level gravel. Grass borders each site. The site that we were on faced an open wetland area. It was very quiet. Each site seems to be narrow, about 20 feet. Satellite signal was good, no cable or wifi. The park needs new gravel everywhere. It rained on our stay and the roads turned to mud. We would stay here for long periods, if the weather was dry. - ctjt1234

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

No water hookups nor sewage but electrical worked fine. This is a state park so must pay state fees. Lovely park setting. If you are a big rig, you park on the road in side little parking spaces - if you are smaller you can park in the inside of the park in a more woodsy setting closer to lake Michigan. It is peaceful and lovely. Very rustic but would stay there again - it was cold and windy when we stayed but still a nice location. I am sure in the summer it is wonderful - FrancisandRenee

We stayed here in our 28 foot travel trailer, and my nephew and his friend stayed in a tent on our site. Although the nightly rate is reasonable, it costs an additional $10 per night per car to cover the Wisconsin state park fees. This drove the nightly rate up to $38 per night. The office is run by an extremely rude woman. The parking pad was level and the site was ok although we prefer a site that is off the road a little bit. There was no flat space to use under our awning, and since it rained every day of our stay we were stuck inside. Wood is $5 for a very small amount of wood. Even in the rain we spent $10 for wood and still didn't have a fire for more than 2 hours. In addition they won't deliver it to your site, you have to pick it up yourself. We were amazed to find a number of sites that are located on the edge of the street. Park your rv there and walk up into the woods a bit for your fire pit and picnic table. The shore of Lake Michigan is gorgeous. The outhouses are acceptable. It is not likely we will stay here again. - lorenanddenise

We booked this on line - only option - which adds $10.00 to the site fee of $22.00. There is an entrance fee of $10.00 per day each day! Buy the yearly out of state sticker for $35.00 if you want to enter a state park more than 3 times! We arrived after dark and could not back into our assigned site as there were picnic tables in the way. It was of course pitch dark. There were no unreserved spaces alongside the road available. We were very disappointed and drove the extra 110 miles home. We had driven from the City of Hougton, MI RV park, Wisconsin needs to look at how they run their park. Too expensive for what you get. - K&J

Driveway in has you wondering where you will end up; road looks as though it washes out occasionally. There were two nights of heavy rain and grass sites were soft and became muddy. Electric dropped to below 110 volts, which is not good for onboard electrical/electronics.
Campground is remote and quiet. But also lies low. Our site happened to be in a low area of the campground. Marsh was across the road. Believe it or not, there were NO mosquitoes, which was great! - be rob

Lowest campground power I have ever seen!
Voltage dropped from 122 volts to 98 volts when I turned on the air conditioner! Fortunately, it was cool enough in the evening that we didn't need it.
Interior roads a mess! Lumpy and bumpy, full of mud holes.
Our friends in a 5th wheel had to put their truck in 4-wheel drive to get in and out of their site. I understand the campground can't stop the rain, but they can put gravel down!
Looked like a junkyard as we entered with derelict campers and unidentifiable machinery.
This campground appears to cater to locals who want to get away for the weekend.
Sorry, just can't agree with previous reviews. I would have rated it a bit higher had the electrical been up to par, but not by much.
When I spoke to the campground about the power situation, I was told that when it rains, the power is bad. Obviously, they know there is a problem but have not addressed the issue. Maybe it was just my site, I don't know.
Our site was barely long enough for our 28 foot TT. We had to park our tow at an unused site nearby. - thetravelkids

It is a little ways from activities in Sheybogan and Kohler, which is what we were there for. But it was quiet, dark at night, and the hosts couldn't be any nicer! They escorted us to our site, helped with directional parking, had trimmed some trees to make sure we wouldn't scratch our new rig and in fact gave us 2 sites to use. Table provided, fire ring. Appears they have a number of seasonal residents and the campground is tiered. NO Wi-Fi, but she offered to come up to the office and use her hot spot. Security cameras and Lake Ellen is within walking distance, very pretty setting. For the price and friendliness we would definitely consider staying here again. - Yamaman

We camped here Labor Day weekend with a last minute reservation. They just had a cancellation and we were able to get a peninsula site on the lake and it was really nice. I agree with the other post that the campground is made up of a lot of seasonal sites who could use a good clean up. Water was accessible at the back of the site but electric was at the front and on the curb side so we had the cord running across the site. We love the Kettle Moraine area and will be back. Campground was quiet and campers were respectful, except for one family who would not clean up after their dog. Loved that the campsites were semi-private with trees and bushes between most of the campsites! Peninsula would be really hard to navigate with anything bigger than 25 feet. Had a nice bar and a separate grill. - weasel007

We have been to Mauthe Lake several times. Wonderful state park. Staff is helpful and friendly. Facilities are clean with plenty of hot water. Lake is fun and clean. It is a very nice campground with nice playground, beach., fishing pier, little store, beautiful trail around the lake. Milwaukee river flows through Mauthe Lake. Our kids, 6,4, and 1 love this place. The campground is nice, clean and very quiet. The campsite itself is very wooded and secluded. Would come back in a second! - basiamil

This place is great in a pinch. We stayed here on Labor Day weekend, as we could find nothing else. Basically, you are camping in a parking lot with a tiny bit of grass. It worked in a bind, but, no amenities outside of basic utilities. NOTE: Basically, their website and others say that you can check in at night and on weekend, via a drop box. But, this has changed. If you don't get there by 3'ish, you are SOL. In their defense, they are working on an automatic system. But, during out visit, we saw numerous folks pull in and leave, after discovering a locked utility box. - Legends Of America

It's not a campground. Forget the amenities. In late Sept., even the bathrooms were locked. There are two rows of grassy and dirt pads out in an open field/parking lot. Electrical power is centrally located with two 50A plug ins, several 30A, the rest are 15A. If you don't get one of the central spaces, bring a real long power cord or you won't reach. Water is available at all sites. The odd thing here is the sewer. Someone with a travel trailer or 5th wheel whose black valves are on the back corner would not have a problem. If you are in a Diesel Pusher, with drains in the middle, forget dumping you tanks. On both rows the sewer intakes are on high ground. The slope of the pad puts your RV's sewer drain many inches lower than the parks sewer inlet. Do-do doesn't run up hill. The only thing this place has going for it is it's right in Fond Du Lac. Downtown is walking distance away. (note that the "other" Fond Du Lac listing on RV Park reviews is dislocated. It is actually several miles south of town). - whizbang

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

We have been to group RV functions (120-150 motorhomes) at the Manitowoc Expo Center twice in the past 5 years. When not reserved for groups, many of the sites are available for overnight/longer stays at a reasonable price. Most are water/electric sites but there is a dump station on site. "Midway" sites on pavement may not be the most level, but there are plenty of grassy options. The first row of paved sites, near the Expo Office, has 50A wiring but I'm not sure it's available to the general public (special cords were used to connect to the panel for our club's dignitaries). Most sites are open and satellite TV should be no issue. Power was strong; even with warm weather and lots of rigs, voltage didn't drop out. There are signs indicating a local WiFi service in the buildings but we were unable to see it to connect. - RvTravelerNTechie
