Date of Stay: August, 2013 - $23.00
Friendly 90yo owner. Peaceful country setting, but lots of aunts. We sprayed and had no intruders. Hubby said bathroom was old, but serviceable. Lots of older rigs that appear to be stored there. Saw very few people milling about. Great place to stay when visiting family in Eau Claire. Would stay again. We camped at Elmer's RV Park and Camp Grounds in a Travel Trailer.

This campground is located about 4 ½ miles southeast of Eau Clair along Hwy 12 not far off of I-94. The owner is a fellow that is 86 years young. He doesn’t do any of the work around the campground. There is a seasonal tenant that does most of the work and the grounds are well kept. The campground is located on about 12 acres of treed land and fairly level. There are not a lot of full hookup sites and most of these are taken up by seasonal campers. Many of the seasonal campers look like they are just barely able to make ends meet. Sites: Full-hookup sites are VERY narrow. Most are level and sandy/grassy. Electric is 30 amps. Most sites have at least water and electric. Numerous sites are suitable for satellite reception. Campground in General: The bath house is a very tired cinder block structure. It’s dark, wet and dingy and not very well maintained or cleaned. You’ll want to use your own unit. There is also a Laundromat in the back of the bath house and rates are less than the local economy. The back of the campground is used for trailer/vehicle storage. Pets are allowed. We had no issues with uncontrolled pets or barking. You will hear highway noise, but it’s not bad. There are many ‘ol duffers who come here every year. They are very friendly and will jump at any chance to help you. This is the closest campground to Eau Claire. Rates are okay; we paid $19/night for full hookups. There’s no website, like I said, Elmer is 86 years old and doesn’t have a clue about computers. There is no Wi-Fi or other means of internet access. Go to the Arby’s on Bus 53 for a free hotspot. Shoot on up to Chippewa Falls and take the Leinenkugel's brewery tour. You'll love it!! We camped at Elmer's RV Park and Camp Grounds in a Fifth Wheel.
