11 RV 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

No laundry on site, payment quoted on phone was then expected to be cash, more if by card. No late arrival allowed, no attempt to accommodate needs of camping arrival. Reservationist did not speak clear English. Steep, gravel entry drive: watch out for deer. Rained and concerned branches could have hit RV. Trees untrimmed.
No trash cans throughout park. Only 1 dumpster which is marked for food only specific type of trash. You're told to take your trash out with you.
Poorly lit indoor pool with no life guard. No pool safety items. Pay showers, which were not the cleanest. Grounds are not well maintained, grass looks like rarely mowed. Lots of mosquitos. Gravel roads. Picnic tables were old. I will never stay here again or recommend. - Jane77

We have been camping at The Playful Goose for 3 years and have always found the owners to be very accommodating. We have our favorite site and found it by taking our time reviewing the website map and dates that accommodate our trips.
The sites are large, not on top of each other. The grounds and parking pads are maintained well including regular cleaning of the fire pits. The beautiful marsh setting is peaceful and fun for all with a park nearby. Paddle boats, canoes, etc are available for rent at the campground. The indoor pool is great for both kids and adults. The restrooms and showers are clean and if there is anything you need the owners are there to assist.
Thank you! - RCKK

This park it self is wonderful. They really need to think about putting water on all the sites. The park manager was not friendly. The area was quite wet when we first arrived. No parking on the grass. Toward the end of the week, the area was drying up. My folks, who are 85 years old came out to visit is us. My dad parked on the grass and the park manager made a point to come around and tell them and us about the no parking rule on the grass. In a tone of voice that was not nice. He was not staying more than a hour to visit. - sweats

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

First be aware that whether you make reservation on line or just show up at park there is a $5.00 reservation fee. Also there is a huge amount of bugs. Most spaces are shaded and many are spacious. Water only and the dump station fill up is on way into cammpground so to use after stay you have to drive all around loop. Crowed on week ends and not so much during the week. Not really terrible place but I will not use again if I can help it. - arcticfox

Stayed here while visiting friends in the area. The sites are electric only with water and dump site by entrance. The sites are set in a wooded area. There is a bathroom/shower house also at the entrance. The adjacent park has group picnic areas with a reserve able shelter for parties. A swimming pool, walking trails and playground are close by. - TexasRVer

This is a nice county park, which per the campground host, typically has open sites on weekends. It has an updated shower/restroom building and paved interior roads. Several sites would accommodate big rigs, but the numerous trees would require cautious entry. The wooded campsites limit any satellite use. Limited recreational activities in the area cause the overall rating to fall short of excellent. - mdtandem

It's a county park and taken very well care of. Quick check in and the park was about 90% full. All the sites are open unless you tent it back in the tent area. The sites along the river are all gravel and somewhat level. They area up top has concrete pads which cater to the big rigs and gravel area which looked a little congested. Tons of grass space to roam around. We stayed for two nights and did a little paddling on the river (they rent canoes) other then that not much going on. Not sure I would be back as its close to home and probably would explore someplace else. If passing through for the night or a need to be in the area I would stay again. - Campingwi

We have stayed at least once or twice a year for years. Each time is for two nights. Very clean, same park host's for several years. We stay on the black top for parking but very large grass area all around you. Spots are very large. This park is surrounded by water, if you have a smaller rig or tent you can camp by the water. Grass is always cut, burning pit is cleaned out after each camper leaves. Must buy firewood in the park if you want a fire. - Rod123

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 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

This park has no cable tv, wifi is not strong. Gravel sites mostly level. Park is crowded and very expensive. Owner was nice but insisted the rates were reasonable for how nice the park was. I am a full time traveler and never paid over $40 throughout most of the U.S. This park is no better then other parks for a lot less. This park is for the local weekenders. It appears to be geared toward kids and vacationers. Full timers stay away. Traveled roads and tight turns between trees. - Mike Mac

A very nice, well run RV park with very friendly and helpful owners. We stayed in the new big rig area. Check in area was large and registration was easy. Sites were spacious, level and just long enough for rig and tow. Next to a large swimming pond. Restrooms in this section were new and very nice. Roads and sites are gravel. Grassy patio area with picnic table and fire ring. Lots of amenities for the kids. No cable but several over the air channels and good satellite reception. WiFi was good. A bit pricey. - VegasVagabonds

Park in transition for big rig/pull thru sites. They are in the process of building a new section for pull thru's which will make the a great park. Existing sites are very tight and rely on being able to navigate across grass to enter and exit which is fine when hard and dry - not when rainy and wet. Owner is extremely helpful. I had an attached trailer that could not be separated and he bent over backwards to fit me in the park. Lots of things for kids and exceptionally well cared for. The owner was constantly maintaining. I will be back next year when the new section is complete. Very close to interstate and major truck stops. - Zoey and Reba

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

This is our favorite Wisconsin campground! We enjoy the atmosphere and the convenience of having so much to do. The pool/waterpark is clean, and well kept. As a mom of two little ones, I appreciate the lifeguard staff, and the fact that the pool area and beach are right next to each other. The mini golf, frisbee golf, and pedal bikes are all rented with a deposit that you get back upon returning the items - this is a nice feature being able to do these things for free. This campground allows you to have one RV and one tent per site, which has been nice for having others camp with us. There are fun activities planned on the weekends - and our kids enjoy the activity center, jump pillow and playgrounds. This is a friendly, fun campground. We have stayed 4 times, and plan to keep going back! Helpful note: it can be noisy late - especially on bigger weekends, like Memorial Day weekend when they have a live band play. This didn't affect us that much with being in our travel trailer, but we had friends staying on our site in a tent, and it was hard for them to sleep - they were pretty crabby the next day. - GoBigOrGoHome

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

We stayed here over memorial day weekend and again a few weekends later in a 37 foot class A motor home. We had a nice site it was on gravel and was fairly level. The campground was very nicely maintained and the owners very friendly. Many people camped in tents and a variety of campers and many stayed out late by their campfires. Everyone was very respectful and quiet at night and you would never even know they were out there. It had a nice playground and a great beach with swimming. We really enjoyed staying there and would definitely visit again - mshoff

The owner, could not have been nicer. Allowed us to extend our stay beyond his seasonal closing date. He assisted with the back in. At our particular site, our tow vehicle did not park on the campsite. He spoke to us and wished us well upon our departure. We don't mind rules. In fact, we wish more campgrounds enforced the rules they have. Rules make for a pleasant camping experience for everyone. Utilities and wifi worked great! - lovingthervlife

One of the nicest parks we have ever stayed in. Lush green grass level sites with mature trees around a spring-fed glacial lake. 20, 30 and 50 amp with full hookups. Family owned and meticulously groomed. Very family oriented with beautiful beach for swimming, boating, fishing. We'll definitely be back. - Elizabeth Eells
