10 Parks near Horicon, Wisconsin
Sep 2012 - $18.00
An out of the way park, signage to it not very good, but otherwise a pleasant surprise. Hiking trails have a view of the Horicon Marsh which is a must place to go to. Only down side is the 20 amp sites. Would stop here again without a doubt. - stetwood

We absolutely love this campground. The sites we had were nicely wooded and the play area was across the camp road. We had our family reunion here and the facilities were very nice and well kept. The bathrooms and showers were very clean, caretakers were very friendly and made sure guests were following rules. The trails are intriguing and show off beautiful scenery. We have stayed here 3 times and will continue to return. - cfamrace49

This is a nice county park. There are a few sites for big rigs, but check ahead and make a reservation. The electric is 20 amp only. Lots of shade and space to spread out. The park features nice hiking trails and playgrounds for the kids. The park is close to the Horicon Marsh and many other recreational activities including the Wild Goose Rail Trail for the cyclist. - Paul M. Kitchen

Positive was the large site. Negative is campsites mingled with mobile homes with sheds and decks. Indoor pool is only open for summer season. Uncut lawns. Poor signage. Overpriced with no commercial discounts. We paid $43 a night for water electric and sewer. No campfire rings. - Happy Trails Camper

This campground offers no discounts. Up charge for A/C and credit card use. It is a pretty park, but overpriced for water and electric only. Road coming in was gravel and dusty. Nice park to walk around the loops to get some exercise. Nice campsites (small campers) by the Rock River. We had a pretty big rainstorm in the middle of the night. Got moving to leave around 10 AM. The dump station was buried in mud. I had to shovel it out to dump. The road had some pretty big ruts in it that we had to ease through. - Spizzer

Stayed over the Memorial day weekend, will not be back, seasonal's with 2 and 3 dogs all off their leashes, the couple next to us had the 3 dogs that pretty much starred at us if we sat outside in chairs or picnic table. They had said they have an invisible leash system, "but don't tell the office". Its too bad cause it could be a nice campground, large sites, very good location. The "junk" collection is nothing more than that, not a biggie to us. Might drive thru in the future to see if management cleans up on a few bad apple seasonal's. Site was great minus the neighbors dogs. - Cheesehead69635

We stayed there a full week and found the camp hosts pleasant and helpful. The park and features were in good shape, the rest rooms and showers clean. 20 and 30 amp electric only. - BaldEagle42

We stay at this park every summer to visit family in the area. The roads and large sites are paved with nice grassy areas between. Sites have 30 amp electric with fresh water and dump station at park entrance. There is a very clean shower building with flush toilets and showers. The campground is across the street from Beaver Dam Lake with a boat launch and fishing pier. This park is a gem in a peaceful natural setting. Will stay here again and again. - krb

The sites are large, but you are very close to the road, so you don't have much privacy. Our site backed up to a corn field, which was nice for some extra privacy. The road through the park was a little small, but we got through without much problem. The main problem with the campground was that the electric did not work at our site. We tried everything we could to get it working, but the whole pole - both circuit breakers - were not working. We tried calling several different numbers for help (all of which were listed on the paperwork received with our reservation), at least to try a different site, but no one answered any of the phones. We ended up leaving after the first night and going to another campground. It was very disappointing. - socerbruse

It would have been nice to have water hook up, guess I am spoiled. The park has all asphalt pad that were level. Great over air tv and cell service. The park was very clean and peacefully. I would stay there again. - rving4fun

This is a very clean, nice county park off the beaten path. It was almost empty the whole time we were here. The spots are spacious, level and easy to back into. The is no water nor sewer connections at the sites. They do have a hose at the entry to fill your fresh water tanks and a dump station to flush the holding tanks when you leave. There was one other camper in the park while we were there during the week. We would come back if in the area. - bones1941

Great place for an overnight stop. Our site had two 30-amp connections, but no 50-amp, though there are a few sites with 50-amp, apparently. The sites on the back of the park are not big-rig friendly, but the front and middle sections are fine. There is water near the front gate which can be used to fill your tank. The only water elsewhere in the park is for filling a bucket, and has no hose-fitting. Besides the camp host, we were the only people at the campground (on a Wednesday). - sendthefire

This is a beautiful state park, however, be aware that most of the sites are very difficult to back into if you have a large rig. Our rig is 30 ft long and it was a challenge. If you have a rig larger than this the only sites you could get into would be 29 , 30, and 2. Only the inside sites have electric. Except for sites 29,30,31,32,1 and 2, it is heavy wooded and DARK. And when it rains, which it frequent does in Wisconsin, it stays wet. There is no hope of getting a satellite signal except on the few upper sites previously mentioned. Cellphone signal is weak at best. But, there are lots of nice trails to hike, and wildlife around. It is about 5 miles from the freeway and near a small town with a Wal-Mart. - sunbadgers

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

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 stayed June 24 - June 26 in our 26' travel trailer. $158.26 incl. tax for 2 adults & 3 children aged 7, 17, & 17. We stayed on site #1; friends stayed on site #2. I was NOT a happy camper this visit. - No pun intended. THE BAD: Our site was covered & I mean covered in geese feces. Good thing we have dogs & I was able to use their pooper scooper....for a little over AN HOUR! I'd say every 10-12 inches there was a pile. Not even exaggerating! Once our friends arrived we collected quite a bit more for at least another 30-45 minutes each. I'd say together we gathered 8-10 pounds of feces. Again, not making this up. We mentioned something to the office & they said people were coming Saturday morning to clean up. The beach was covered - disgusting! Not even a "sorry for the trouble, can we get you some ice-cream?!" Since we were on site #1 we had seen the maintenance crew arrive Saturday morning. They did one section of the beach area, left, & didn't come back. There was still A LOT left! And they didn't come by our site to clean up, or any others for that matter, just the beach area. They are also using a strobe light system to scare the geese away, but all they did was sit behind our camper. I also think they are being fed because at one point they stayed away from the beach area, but we noticed almost all had their heads down to the ground. At this site we also had a lot of campers walking through our site. Unfortunately our one dog that we recently adopted got anxious each time someone walked through the site, so we had to take him inside. It would have been nice if people walked around. THE GOOD: The pool was spectacularly clean this time. It was also nice seeing the lifeguards watching for height restrictions on the younger water slide riders. Out of the local campgrounds in WI this is our #2 favorite campground, but our #3 overall. We will be back, I just hope the geese are more under control next time. - Candi and Michael WI

Be sure to thoroughly question the site you plan to stay on. Some sites have terribly placed trees if you have a large rig. We have a 42' fifth. Plan your path to your site before leaving the gate, some turns are quite tight.
This is a party campground. So if you are looking for quiet, this is not your place. Our river front site actually was quite nice. But again, ask when you call. Plenty of weekend sites do not have shade, but some have really nice large mature trees.
There is a guarantee you will have golf carts buzzing around all day. All of them playing music quite loud.
No garbage bins are placed around the campground. You must drive all your garbage to a somewhat inconvenient location. Particularly if you typically throw out garbage while hooked up and dumping. This park has 2 dump stations which is nice, but one of them you must pull head on to a building and back out.
The pool and water slides were well kept and maintained. The beach pond had a funky smell, taste(don't ask), and color. The weird turquoise color makes you wonder.
Horseshoe, volleyball, baseball areas all look fairly well maintained. The Frisbee golf course was decent. I'm sure not many people play that. The skate park I was really looking forward to, was nothing more than a cracked up, abandoned tennis court. The actual tennis court didn't look much better. Both of which should be taken off their advertisements. The dunk tank I didn't look for but didn't see either. - Magiccowinuse

This was our 2nd weekend (1st stay was Memorial Day weekend) in 2015 at Riverbend in our 26' travel trailer. We stayed 8/28 & 8/29 - 2 nights $158.26 incl. tax. We stayed on site #6; friends stayed on sites #5 & #4. Loved the little less than busy golf cart traffic that we have seen many times in the past while staying at sites on Pike Dr. (24-27 & 68-70) In the future we will always pick #6. It didn't have any shade, but it was very very spacious! We were a bit further away from the main bath house (which is why we stay on Pike Dr. every time), but the more quiet atmosphere was refreshing. The bath house on Bass drive is not a favorite of mine (many repairs are needed & usually dirty), so I always prefer the bath house next to the store. I did not use their shower facilities this time, but I do know those you do have to bring quarters for. Amenities include pool w/ waterslides, kiddie pool, swimming pond w/ inflatables, jumping pillow, Tiki bar, volleyball courts, bags tournaments, boat launch, mini golf, Friday night karaoke at Benderz Bar N Grill (campground restaurant), Saturday night band, & more. We will most always go back, it's just not my #1. - Candi and Michael WI

Nice lakeside park. I don't know where the issues arose with those who complained about both rudeness and "rules". The management was pleasant and we neither saw or experienced any issues with rules. Yes there is the usual signage and handout about do's and don'ts, but that is at all parks.
Family oriented: large beach and playground for kids. Quiet sites. Yes we'd stay again. - TPDBOB8687

This is a family oriented park. Nice lake with fishing. Site was not level. Had picnic table and fire ring. Staff friendly and helpful. Able to get satellite and good Verizon. Lots of families for Memorial Day weekend, but the park was quiet. We would stay here again if in the area. - Deniselg53

We used this campground as our base while attending the West Bend Geocaching Bash. It is an older campground with some sites more level than others, and some with more maneuverability than others. Sites are a mix of gravel and grass and can be narrow or roomy. It really is a toss up! The beach is a local favorite and you'll find a lot of families using the area during summer days. We didn't mind the rules; figure they have to do this to maintain the park as well as they do. Owner let us trim the branches that were hitting the top of our motorhome which we appreciated. Rate reflects a weekly rate. Electricity was extra (for us about $21 for the week). - DiplomatTraveler

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
