We have stayed at Wagon Trail Campground three years in a row while visiting Door County. We love the size of the campsites as well as wooded privacy. The bathrooms and showers are sparkling clean. The campground is located on the far northern end of the peninsula which is away from the crowded areas, but not too far to easily bike into Ellison Bay or Sister Bay or drive to the beautiful State and County parks. We love campsites #514 and #515. The sites are very level, and there is plenty of room for our fifth wheel, truck, and screen house.

The reason I rate Wagon Trail an 8 is that there are only a limited number of sites with full hookups and many of those sites to not have the privacy and space that the premium electric/water sites have. Wagon Trail does offer a convenient pump out service for $15. That's nice for us since we were staying 10 nights. Also, access to internet and cable is very limited. There is a pretty good signal in the office/lounge area, just not at our campsite. It rained a few days while we were here, and the campsites drain very well, and the campground staff is quick to keep the gravel roads well graded and raked after rain. The dumpsite has hand sanitizer, a sewer hose and garden hose which makes it convenient.

We have always had good luck with the firewood purchased there as well. They keep it dry; they charged $5.25 for a nice-sized bundle. We camped at Wagon Trail Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Seachrist Farms cherry pie is amazing!! We enjoy the car ferry over to Washington Island/Rock Island leaving Northport, Sunset Bike Trail at Peninsula State Park, hiking at Newport State Park, climbing along the rocks at Cave Point County Park, and touring the lighthouse at Cana Island. The fish boil at the Old Post Office in Ephraim was really good and not too pricey. Bargains Unlimited Resale shop in Sister Bay is a great stop.

The staff and owners here were a highlight---super friendly, helpful with ideas, and patient. Our pull-through gravel site was fairly easy to get level. Verizon 4G connected well. It rained through most of our stay, although the place looked to have some really amazing walking trails and things to do that we did not have a chance to experience. Laundry on site...2 washers, 4 dryers. We camped at Wagon Trail Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Staff was extremely welcoming and helpful in giving tips about activities in the area. The campground was very quiet, with adequate space between sites. Landscaping was beautiful and facilities were extremely well-maintained. Showers and bathrooms were immaculate. We would stay here again. We camped at Wagon Trail Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a very nice and secluded Park located off the "beaten path" off tourist Bay side of the peninsula, but only 5 miles from all the action. Positives include great staff, clean restrooms, wooded and secluded sites with lots of space between. Negatives are all gravel interior roads, sites and patios. No Wi-Fi outside of the office, no cable, and one needs to search for satellite service, assuming one would wish to be connected. Further, sewer service is only available for a few sites. Nonetheless, given its location, we'd camp there again. We camped at Wagon Trail Campground in a Motorhome.

We were given a wonderfully easy pull-through site with lots of trees and a sense of seclusion, even though it was right near the entrance and all bath/shower facilities, etc. Big level site, very welcoming and helpful front desk staff members, and meticulously clean showers and toilet stalls. Only critiques were the lack of a pool, Wi-Fi only in the main lodge, and the showers were a bit cozy sized. Beautifully kept grounds. We camped at Wagon Trail Campground in a Motorhome.

This was a nice park, with very wooded sites that were nicely spaced. It's a great location if you want to step out of your RV and take a walk, either through the campground or right out into a hiking trail. Our TV antenna couldn't get any signals, so it was very quiet in the evenings. We also had a hard time with our phone tethered to the computer -- very slow download speeds. We'd certainly stay here again and it's just a beautiful area. We camped at Wagon Trail Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

One of the best parks I've stayed in. Would give it a 10 except for the cost, it is pricey. Very helpful, friendly staff, very well maintained grounds and sites. While it's expensive I'd stay again in a heartbeat. We camped at Wagon Trail Campground in a Motorhome.

The sites are huge! They a have flat gravel camping surface and tons of pine trees in between sites. You could barely see your neighbors. It's like camping in a state park. We picked a prime electric and water site and we had trees behind us - no campers. There is a nice picnic table and a fire pit with a cooking grate. It's only a 10 walk to Lake Michigan and all of Door County just a few minutes drive away. The weather was perfect - 70's by day, mid 50's by night. We were surprised to not be bugged by mosquitoes. The staff is excellent as well as the cleanliness of the wash rooms. We already booked 4th of July weekend next year for a definite return visit. This is now our favorite campground in Wisconsin. Enjoy! We camped at Wagon Trail Campground in a Tent Trailer.

In many ways, this was the nicest campground we've ever stayed at. I honestly didn't want to leave. First and foremost- the sites. The site separation and privacy rivals or exceeds that of many state parks we've been to. Our site was surrounded by pine trees and we could just barely make out the outline of the campers next to us looking through the trees. One complaint I have about campgrounds, even the really nice ones, is that they pack you in like sardines. This is most definitely NOT the case at Wagon Trial. The sites are very large and well separated. The site was completely level and spacious; no trees directly overhead so you can enjoy the beautiful night sky. It gets VERY dark here at night. There are very few lights. Most have probably never seen so many stars as you'll see here. It was SO QUIET, even during the day. The campground is located in northern Door County, so you're past the activities of a little further south. However, the drive to the attractions of Sister Bay, Ephraim, Fish Creek, etc. was only a short ride away. The facilities: the bathrooms are hotel quality clean. Staff cleans them at least twice a day. The showers are private and include a body soap dispenser in case you forgot your own soap. I thanked one of the workers for keeping the bathrooms so clean and he said that the owners make sure they have anything they need to keep the bathrooms spotless. Bravo. The camp store has the necessities; a bundle of 12 pieces of firewood is $4.75; there's a laundry room, game room with some video games and a pool table, an adult game room that has some books, puzzles, and comfortable chairs; a fish-cleaning station, volleyball net, horseshoes, tucked-away benches to just sit and enjoy nature and its beauty. Also some hiking trails that leave right from the campground. The grounds are meticulously landscaped with beautiful flower gardens and trimmed & watered grass. My cell phone didn't work to well at my site, but it worked just fine up at the main building. The only reason I didn't give this place a "10" was because I don't think anything is perfect, and a "10" to me constitutes perfect. If I could improve one thing about Wagon Trail Campground, it would be that they add a swimming pool, but seriously, they don't need one to keep me coming back. We camped at Wagon Trail Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is an extremely well maintained campground, but you pay for it. It is on the expensive side in my opinion. The sites were meticulously groomed and are private and large. There is a children's playground area that is located just outside the office. They offer a fish cleaning area as well as a lounge area with books, games and a fireplace to relax in and a free cup of coffee in the morning. The bathrooms/showers are clean, but the shower stalls are very small. We would stay again. We camped at Wagon Trail Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We had a great time at this campground. Sites are large and have trees between for privacy. They have a good sized playground and a large recreation field. We came up with for rally and had a great time. They put up a large tent on the rec field for our group and we had nightly campfires here too. The showers were clean and they have a good sized camp store, a game room for the kids, and a game room for adults (with Wi-Fi, checkers, books, etc.). There is also and outside station for returning fishermen to clean and pack their fish. Very nicely done and we will definitely be back. We camped at Wagon Trail Campground in a Motorhome.
