The water hookups in the area we were in were shared and not close to your site. We needed to purchase addition hose as it was 100' from our site to the water hookup. There is a restaurant/bar on site and the prices were very reasonable. The sites in the area were were in were very large but they offered no privacy. - F350John

We paid for electric and water, but the spigot was not close enough for our RV hose length. No big deal, we were able to fill our tanks when we pulled in. Great campground, kid/dog friendly. Lots of mosquitoes, but that is not the campgrounds fault. We fogged our site every morning because we hate those buggers! Relaxing, beautiful time. Can't comment on the restrooms or shower; did not use. - veebs

This park was a little difficult to find, but is very pretty setting. Lots of trees around, which makes TV reception a little iffy. For the price, I thought we should get cable TV and free internet, as well as a sewer on site. The only bathrooms within the park are pit toilets and the woman's was filthy. Hadn't been touched in a long time. Showers located at or near the restaurant, so we didn't use them at all. We are here for a wedding, so doubt we will ever be back here. If we are, I would look for a different campground. It's very pleasant and the sites are lovely, however. - mcleff

Stayed for one night with a 45 ft MH and 20 foot trailer. Office was supposed to be open until 5 on Sunday - closed at 3. Had to work with security and maintenance folks - who were very helpful. Roads are VERY twisty and narrow. LOTS of low tree limbs. I was 45 fee/MH with a 20 foot trailer that could not be disconnected nor could I back into a regular space. We were given a space in a large grass field near the office. Difficult to navigate. If it rains/has rained you will be in trouble. Could never get the bus close to level. Also turned out the they had no sewer and only 30 amp in this area. Also no cable. Eventually one of the helpful maintenance guys suggested I plug into 50 amp electrical in an unoccupied cabin nearby. Thankfully I had 50 foot extension. Forget satellite - air TV was one national channel. Leaving involved dodging more low limbs - unsuccessfully and running over a grass median with a cut down tree stump to get an angle to escape. There are a lot of permanent looking units there which are nicely kept. Nice surroundings but the area where I was given is not big rig friendly if you are unable to disconnect your trailer/car. - Zoey and Reba

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

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

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

We stayed in this lovely State Park for three nights. They have many activities and nature walks to participate in. I went on a bird walk early the first morning here. Unfortunately we didn't see many birds but did learn a lot from the volunteer doing the walk. We only had electric at our site and it's a bit misleading when you pay for your site, as you also need to pay $11.00 a day for a park pass. The beaches are clean and lots of picnic tables and benches to sit on. I also had lots of great roads to ride my bike and hikes to do with my dog. Definitely recommend this lovely surprise!! - Barb Stout

This is the camping area that we come back to every year. Mature trees and great hiking paths. You can walk through forest or sand dunes. A nice beach area . It also has a nature center. Easy drive to a very nice city where you can find anything that you would need. - toedoc

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 one night on our way to Peninsula State Park, Door County, Wisconsin. We arrived on a Sunday evening and most camping spaces were vacant. Lots were very spacious. Only a few small trees in our area. We pulled into our site. No cable, no internet,no sewer. There was a distant view of Lake Winnebago. They have a pool which we did not use. We really liked the extra large dog park. However, if you have an escape artist he could get out in certain sections of the bottom of the fence. There was a large seasonal population in the wooded area. - Sunnie-Wheelhouse

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

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

Park in transition for big rig/pull thru sites. They are in the process of building a new section for pull thru's which will make the a great park. Existing sites are very tight and rely on being able to navigate across grass to enter and exit which is fine when hard and dry - not when rainy and wet. Owner is extremely helpful. I had an attached trailer that could not be separated and he bent over backwards to fit me in the park. Lots of things for kids and exceptionally well cared for. The owner was constantly maintaining. I will be back next year when the new section is complete. Very close to interstate and major truck stops. - Zoey and Reba

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
