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

This is a specialized campground open for EAA's Air Venture during July. If your looking for a resort with lots of amenities this is not it! It's dry camping with the friendliest bunch of aviation nuts that you will ever meet! This year we arrived three days before the start of Air Venture and the campground was about half full. By the opening day it was close to capacity. This year according to EAA officials was the first time ever, that the campground was full to capacity. They have installed several new restrooms and showers so that helped with the huge crowds. But, with 40,000 campers things can get hectic. The Port-a-poties near our rig were pumped twice a day and kept fresh and clean. Fresh water and pump-outs are available at your site for $20.00 for each service or you can drive to the dump station. When it's dry it does get dusty, but this year the rains kept the dust to a minimum and in our area mud was never a problem. Considering this is a once a year event and that the entire operation from the check-in to check-out is all staffed by volunteers, I think you find that Camp Scholler is a pretty amazing place. After all, it's really all about the airplanes! Also: the friendly bunch of aviation enthusiasts that will be parked next to you. - happyflyer

The event is great, but the campground is poor. Actually it is a meadow packed with thousands of campers. The portable toilet units are clean if the company instructed to clean it doesn’t forget it (which happened several times in our area). There are only two good things with this campground: most sites are level and you get free Wi-Fi. On the other hand it is dusty when it is dry and a big mud hole when it rains. It is loud from Highway 41 all night long. The rate of $21 does not include the EAA membership (min. $40 per year) that is required to go on this campground. You must be an aviation aficionado to go to this campground. - RVer from Oregon

Lovely little campground! Electric sites, BYO fresh water, although you can fill your tank at the camper registration/store. We stayed on Site 6, couldn't see the lake from our site, but the other sections had some views of the lake. Lots of nice landscaping and playgrounds for kids. Bathrooms/showers were clean, bring your quarters for the showers. Rangers were visible and polite. Fire pits were located kind of away from the site, which we liked a lot. Store had a few necessities. Dump station an extra $3. Some trails which we didn't do this time, but will try next time. Will definitely come back again. No real website for this place, you have to call to make reservations. And they are pretty busy, hard to get in. - CramerCamper

Very nice park. Well maintained, excellent shower and bathroom facilities. The campground was full but you don't feel like your crowded. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Enjoyed the sunsets over Lake Winnebago. Only complaint is there was a group camped next to us, seemed to be a family reunion, who took our picnic table, thank you very much. Would definitely stay here again. - davetro

Pretty nasty place, and terribly overpriced. The site was fairly level, which is a good thing since my jacks would have sunk out of sight in the mud had I used them. The bathroom was so old and run down that I didn't even bother to look at the showers. They had recently placed some gravel over the mud at our site. Result: muddy gravel! Our motorhome tires got a nice coating of mud as we pulled in. My impression of reading reviews of parks in the Oshkosh area is that there don't seem to be many good ones - and I'm not sure why not. Anyway, we will definitely not be coming back to this one! - LowesTravels

Campground isn't much to look at as it's just set in some farmland. Sites are either grass or gravel, reasonably wide and level, but a little short. If crowded it might be a little tight for larger rigs. Power was a major problem when we were there. It wasn't crowded but my voltage would drop very low when my AC turned on. On a few occasions it caused my Progressive protection to cut out the power. I had to run my generator in order to cook dinner in the microwave. There was supposed to be cable TV but our site didn't have hookup for it. Didn't matter as there was good over the air TV as well as a clear shot for satellite. Wi-Fi didn't have very good range but I was able to get it to work with a directional antenna. Speed was acceptable. Small playground for kids but not much else there or nearby. We stayed here one night to check it out with thoughts of staying here for Airventure. - glenthompson

To review this campground, I will just say what we considered the positives and negatives. The positives: A great location for visiting the area, nice level, pull through, full hookup site with a shade tree. The negatives: Bathroom had two flush toilets for over 250 sites. Others were either portable or pit toilets. There were two showers for women and two for men. We had full hookup so did not use either of these but I did check them out and they were moderately clean. Most of the sites were 15 amp, we had one of the few 30 amp sites. We would not stay in this campground again. - stevebotts

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

This campground was nice for the most part. We camped here with our 2 kids. The park has 40 year old equipment and some of the toys were fixed with duct tape. The site we had was nicely shaded, but not very level. Our septic did not work we wanted a site with w/e/s but we did not get that we got w/e. The owner gave us the rate for w/e due to the problem. It was supposed to be fixed on the Monday. But our pipe was still having problems. So when we got back to the site at 9pm we tried to dump and it did not work. My husband went to the owners home and asked him kindly what he was going to do about it because ours was full. He got the BIGGEST attitude and then came to empty us. So the owner was not very kind. He also came on Monday to open the septic tank cover to get pumped and left it opened. Mind you the tank was right in front of our site and the neighbor and us all have kids. He did not tell anyone that he did that. My husband said that the bathrooms were old and smelly. Our site was not mowed. We were also not told about the rules and garbage pick-up. It's an OK place to stay over all the pool was really nice and heated. - kathymcq

Very quiet, rustic campground where most of the campers are seasonal. Friendly, courteous staff. Campground is a bit hilly and the narrow gravel roads have some tight curves. Sites are mostly dirt; lots of tall trees, felt like camping in the woods. I had to use 3 boards to level my camper. Electricity was 113-117 volts without a load, but dropped to 105 with the water heater and microwave on together. Wi-Fi is an additional $2 per day. Pool looked sparkling clean. Restrooms at the office are reasonably clean, but it was difficult to get in and out of stalls due to limited space between door and toilet (I weigh 150). The shower stalls are outside next to the pool in the open air, not practical for inclement weather. The dump station is on a slight hill and tight curve. I do not recommend this CG for a big rig or anything longer than a 24-foot travel trailer. - Digital Dori

Wow!! Where to start. This is one of the nicest places we have ever camped. The campground itself is large and spacious with areas of luxurious green grass and secluded wooded areas. Set in the midst of the Kettle Moraine it has so much to offer. Even the group sight areas are well groomed and pleasantly spaced. The rec center is large and full of activities - planned events or just game tables and arcades for both adult and children. There is a "bar" area fully stocked with beer, wine coolers, sodas, candies and all kinds of other treats to satisfy everyone! The swimming pool is huge, heated and perfectly maintained. To go with it - there is a relaxing hot tub to sooth those aching bones. So much for the actual campgrounds - The people are tremendous! The owners are pleasant and informative - you can tell the pride that they have for their "home". The staff in the rec center are all quick to jump up and serve you and always willing to listen to those "campground stories" and share their own. Bathroom, showers and all facilities are immaculate - including the portalots set up in certain areas. This campgrounds rates OFF the scale!!! We will return MANY times and hope that others will check it out too. - camping friend

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
