Semi private and very quiet campsites. Lots are decent size and compact gravel, easy to level our TT. Our two kids enjoyed the space and small playground. Store was well stocked, and everything was flawless. Bathrooms were well cleaned, as was the laundry and all of the pathways and campsites. Should we travel back here again we will be back. - thegermans

Located in the northern part of Door County (DC) but don't let that stop you from staying here. DC is long and narrow so you are never far from the action. This was our third stay here. We looked at others but you can't beat Wagon Trail. Many other campgrounds are adjacent to the highway and road traffic is noisy. Owner and her staff will make you feel welcome. Showers, restrooms and laundry are spotless. Nicely stocked camp store. - LuvShack

If I could give this campground 100 stars I would. It's beautiful, it's quiet, scenic, gorgeous walking trails, a fantastic place to stay! The employees are the nicest and most knowledgeable people I've ever come in contact with. Everything was spotless, the bathrooms/showers, laundry room, lounge, you name it, you couldn't ask for a more pleasant campground. This was our first time but you can get it won't be our last! - Karen Lea

This is a very well run campground. The open sites for big rigs provides 50-amp full hookups with open sky and excellent wifi. For those who prefer the wooded sites, they appeared to be very roomy. The bathroom area is old but well-maintained. The location is convenient to Sister Bay and Washington Island. - seeyajohn

Didn't use or check out the restrooms or showers so can't comment about them. Our site was in the new area and didn't have a lot of shade. Large back in site was level and long enough for our 35 ft. trailer and 22 ft. truck. The water pressure seemed low at times. Maintenance was good and the park was very nice. I would stay here again. Very convenient to all of the tourist attractions in the area. - Lincolnland Travelers

Nice park not far from Sister Bay. Mostly wooded lots, but we were put into what appeared to be an "overflow" area with no trees. A significant number of long term people, but their "homes" were well kept up. Note that they charge $4/night for any number of people over 2, so our nightly rate became $57 because there were 4 of us. For that much money, it pushed this campground into the "not worth the money" category for us. - Don Gagnon

This is a a family run campground, run by the sweetest couple. We really enjoyed our site, however this park seemed to mostly be long term campers. That always changes the vibe for us. Everything was clean, my son loved the catch & release pond. Sadly, the wooded areas had to be avoided during our stay because of heavy rains the week before and mosquitoes. We did not have a chance to use the pool. The location is fabulous. We were able to walk to the bakery for breakfast and Sister Bay was a quick drive up the road. This is also a great place to stay for those visiting the state parks. We did not have full hook-ups, so plan to visit their dump station. It was a very tight drive for our 37 foot fifth wheel to maneuver the interior rode that goes through the park, but doable. To reserve you must mail a check for a deposit as they do not accept credit cards. Plan to arrive with cash or check. This is a great home base to enjoy Door County. - barrygoodtimes

I have been camping here all my life. This is one trip the whole family looks forward to every year. The entire property is well maintained and CLEAN. The pool is great and lots of open spaces for the kids to play. The sites are private and shady. There is a trout pond where you can catch rainbow trout. - F350John

We love the island. We love it so much we'd probably stay in the middle of a mudpit and find it hard to complain. The campground has seen some changes in recent years--mostly in terms of cabin builds. But one thing does remain consistent...if you want to use the showers, bring your galoshes. The drainage problem there that was also present years ago results in a pretty nasty shower experience (ankle deep in mysterious swamp like whoknowswhat). Some attempts seem to be made with keeping up with the cleanliness, but the feminine products floating in the showers and crazy slow-drain soapy residue made the restrooms something to avoid during our stay. The laundry facilities are the only ones on the island, but it will cost ya $5.00 a load (2.75 wash, 2.25 dry). Some sites will challenge even the best backer-upper, as maneuvering around trees and then attempting to be level is not always an easy task here. Lots of tent camping among RV sites with W/E hookups, the purpose of which seems to be to use the electricity to run radios. All day, all night. Given that tents cannot contain noise like RVs can, some additional separation or assignment of sites might be helpful....for instance a section for tents that want electricity, etc. The park could really use some camphosts, as it appears one or two people are trying to manage the whole thing...and it shows via a lot of site neglect. - ThreeTravellingBlondes

Washington Island is a nice place to visit and this campground is the only game in town. Nice, large, wooded campsites. Electric pedestals are out in the woods between campsites so you will need a long extension cord. Our 30 Amp cord + extension cord wouldn't reach so we had to use a 50 foot 20 Amp cord.
Owners are very friendly and there are a lot of nice amenities like a swimming pond with sand beach, miniature golf course, playground, etc.
The down sides are the place needs more and better maintenance--potholes in roads, general litter in campground, inoperative fixtures in restrooms. A strange thing--the restrooms were clean and well stocked with soap, paper towels, etc. But the showers were pretty cruddy. And it's a long hike from the camp sites to the restrooms & showers.
Not a great campground, but OK if you want to stay a few days on Washington Island. - John45

On the brochure I got from the RV dealer about the campground there were people swimming and holding up big fish which leads you to believe there is water at the campground. Not the case. The campground is located 4 miles from the water on a small island. All that shoreline and they put the campground in the middle of nowhere. To get to the island it's about 100 bucks in ferry fees. Once on the island you start to see there is not as much to do there than where you came from. The staff was nice and it was easy to get a reservation. The island coast is beautiful and the water is clear and cold. I would like to rate this campground higher but due to the lack of activities, 5 is as high as I'll go. I would suggest to save the ferry ride money and stay somewhere else in Door County. - laynela

This is our third time of staying here. The hosts are polite and competent. They guide you to your site.
The 30 amp electric held its voltage ... the dump site is easy to get to.
My only suggestion for improvement would be some serious road improvement ... they are marked by many potholes.
This is a handy location for the things that we like to do while visiting Door County: plays, hiking, dining. - skigramp

Stayed in Motorhome so we did not use the restrooms. We did use the laundry that had 2 washers and 2 dryers, they both worked fine. All gravel roadways and a little dusty. Our site was a pull thru, we have a 34ft motorhome and had no problems. It was a quiet stay and we had no problems. Site included 30 or 50 amp service and water. Dump station was available. We would stay again. - Bonzo656

This is my third visit to this park since the new owners took over in 2011. They have invested a lot of "sweat equity" in cleaning up the grounds, trimming trees, cutting grass and the overall general appearance. If I owned the campground I would spend some time and money on the bathhouses. Spiders in the corners, water around the sinks, floor dirty. I noticed and pointed out several things, and the manager was appreciative. The problem is this: you must have an eye for noticing things that could be improved and I can tell you that the employees here do not have an eye for that. Examples: they have a fish windsock hanging on the entrance sign. It's in it's third season and faded: spend $25 bucks and present a good first impression. Paint the outside of the office building; repair the bathroom fixtures. The best thing about this campground is the location: close proximity to Fish Creek. The sites are decent and overall it improved greatly, time to take it to the next level. Has amazing potential! - jeffincedar

Big Rig? No Way! We tried to camp here in our 45' motorhome. Reserve America stated we could fit in site 421. We could barley navigate the roads in the campground to get to the site. We could not get into the site. Letftband stayed at Egg Harbor down the road. - Winecoastersblog

We stayed one week which included Labor Day in Nicolet Bay South in an electric only site, no water hookup. Campground was full, family oriented. An abundance of walking/biking paths throughout the whole park with beautiful vistas that overlook Lake Michigan or the Bay of Green Bay. There is a boat launch area. The sandy beach was a short walk away where you could rent kayaks and bikes. Wi-fi is only available at the concession stand area at this beach. Golf course in the park. There are plenty of overlooks and pullouts to view when driving the toad. There is a lighthouse. This is one of our favorite destination campgrounds. Very popular, you should make a reservation. - Sunnie-Wheelhouse

The park had lots of things to see and do. Verizon signal was practically non-existent. We do not have a booster, that might have helped. We were able to use dish. Great location in Door Harbor.
Negatives...it definitely needs trimming at corners on the roads and entrances to sites. We scratched side of trailer at a tight turn which was disappointing. We were in a 36' 5th wheel in Tennison CG, site 440. The site itself was large and very private.
I'm not sure we would stay again unless we knew some major trimming and/or a few trees were cut to make accessibility easier. We loved the park itself. - Crpeine

We came here to explore Door County. The price of the campsite was on the high end of our comfort zone but still very cheap for Door County. Mosquitos are a problem here. If the wind isn't blowing they descend upon you quickly. If you like sitting outdoors in the evening bring a screen room. The park is absolutely packed this time of year so expect some noise but nothing excessive (at least for us). Piggly Wiggly (the Pig) is the only full service grocery in the area and is located in Sister Bay about 15 minutes away. The park store is very basic and sells candy, pop and water by the bottle. The swimming pool is very large and quite clean. However, it can get very crowded. - Charlie_72704

Camp space was adequate. We never got WIFI to work. We were connected to their WIFI but could not access the internet. We were unable to get cable TV. When I asked the owner if it was working he said it should be. I asked where he took his family for a fish dinner. He recommended the Harbor Fish Market. Meals were ala carte with entrée for about $25. Difficult to spend less than $60 for dinner for 2 with only water to drink. Door county is amazing. We explored every day; ferry to Washington Island and the island tour, wonderful state parks, amazing ice cream at Wilsons, breakfast at Al Johnsons, Friday night perch at AC Pub, whitefish at Corner Stone. Don't fail to visit the city parks; small, but many provide amazing views of Green Bay and Lake Michigan. - Toby's dad

We arrived late at night and with a dead battery on our TOAD. The owner helped us into our spot, and in the morning tried to jump us. (We ended up having to call Good Sam, it turned out his jumper cables were not working). The campground itself was very peaceful with nice size spots and little trees in between sites. The one thing we didn't love was that we were parked facing our neighbors, instead of the standard everyone pulls in the same way. This wasn't a big problem though, our neighbors were lovely. Perfect star gazing at night, and wonderful area to visit. We did use the laundry room, it had 3-4 washers, and 3-4 dryers, very efficient. We were expecting mail, and the owner went to town to pick it up and deliver it to us, going above and beyond! We would stay here again! - WHR NXT

Quiet, clean and attractive park with very nice owner. Convenient to everything in upper Door County. Many sites occupied by seasonal/permanent units but all well kept. Park had empty sites during the week but weekend was 100% full. Couldn't get a pull-thru reservation for a week even calling 3 months ahead. OTA TV was only 3 channels (Fox, PBS, BBC) and their reception was erratic. Tree cover too heavy for satellite in back-in area but some pull-thrus could probably get satellite coverage. Back-in area had more privacy than pull-thrus which were crowded and barely long enough for big rigs. Wifi didn't work at all until a technician came to install new antennas to get signal through trees into back-in area; then it was good. Numerous potholes were irritating, especially since they took days to dry after rain and the mud was very hard to remove from our truck. If you get a back-in check on which way to enter the park since several sites are angled so that you have to come in the exit road. Not a problem but it's better to know before arriving. The owner said he was going to call us with this information the day we arrived but I called him first to check on something. - all4pets

Staff was friendly and seemed extremely knowledgable about the area. Dining recommendations were spot on. Had been raining for several days when we arrived. There were some ruts and potholes in the gravel roads that were water filled. Puddles were still there after 3 days. Site was pretty soft first day, but firmed up by the time we left. Motorhome with towed just barely fit in site. All the pull throughs were the same size so not restricted to our site only. Neighbors also commented on just barely fitting into their site. Power was rock solid. Good water pressure. Sewer fitting low enough to ground to provide good drainage of line. Threaded fitting, no donut required. - STBRetired

The park is abundantly treed maybe too much. Very little sunlight gets through the canopy consequently there is also an abundance of Mosquitos. The pluses to the park, very friendly and helpful staff and the park is located on the quiet site of the peninsula. The park also looks and feels like a campground not a parking lot. - arteacher

Great park. Easy to navigate, big level sites. The CG provides a mix of camp sites and cabins. Very nice owners and staff - so thankful they were here and had a site available! We tried to stay at Peninsula State Park which was a disaster in our 45' motorhome. We really enjoyed our stay! - Winecoastersblog

We stayed in the newly constructed section that has concrete pad with grass patio sites. It was lovely. The Park has the pool, playground, showers and picnic areas that are expected. We are particularly impressed with how courteous and helpful the staff is, and how hard they work to keep this place in beautiful, tip top condition. We will return as often as possible! - KJ4ZOY

My sister and I stayed here for 1 week to roam around Door County and take a class at the Peninsula School of Art. We arrived right at check-in time and our site was ready for us. The site was in the heavily-wooded area and was EXCEPTIONALLY clean having just been raked. I have never had a site so clean at check-in. Staff was always friendly and the campground was peaceful and pleasant. Even though the location is right on 42, the traffic noise was basically non-existent between the hours of 10p-7a. Perfect location to experience all that Door County has to offer. I liked this campground and the area so much that I've already booked a stay for the Fourth of July 2017. Can't wait! - EllenT
