We just had the best weekend at Smokey Hollow! Our site #9 was big enough to fit two tents and was a little walk from the beach but also away from the noise. There is just SO much to do for the kids! We stayed with a bunch of friends who all had cabins in the same area so that's where we met everyday for lunch and dinner. We walked over to the pond area. The parents were able to relax while letting the kids run around and explore on their own. The port o johns were always super clean. Breakfast, Bloody Mary's and the lemonades were delicious. The glow parade at night with all the golf carts was super fun but the tractor ride was my favorite! I can't believe how big this park is! We can't wait to go back next year! - jaimeek79

In the interest of fair disclosure I should mention that we used the park a week before it officially opened. We only used electric as the water was still turned off. The park is actually very large and winds around quite a bit. Appears to have a number of long ten residents (as evident by wooden decks adjoining some units); however there are plenty of spaces available. There are a number of activity areas that appear to be designed for kids and youth but none were open (it was dreary weather our visit and like we said their season hadn't started). Our Wi-Fi signal was terrible (maybe not all antennas turned on?). Overall it probably is a good destination park in the summer - we just weren't able to enjoy much due to many things not being open and the weather situation. - Mountain RV User

Kind of pricey at regular rate for an overnight considering they have no sewer hookups. We were there on a late season weeknight so very quiet. Person checking us in had no personality. Looks like mostly seasonal campers here. Lots of cigarette butts on the ground and trash in our fire pit. Paved interior roads but narrow with low hanging branches. - jprisbe

Not sure I could ever recommend this place. I called for a space as we were traveling through and specifically asked for a pull-through full hookup as I was towing and did not want to disconnect. I wanted to pull out early the next morning. I was told by the person answering the phone that that yes we have a site in our hanger section. I happened to be on their website so I looked a the map and said, wow, those are long pull-through sites and she said yes they were. So it was clear that I was expecting a pull through site.
Imagine my surprise when we arrive and I have a back in. I was not happy and had a conversation with a nice person who brought the papers to my site. Her and the person I had spoken to previously had a conversation over the radio and I was basically called a liar.
We ended up staying but here is the deal. The hanger section is the furthest away from the "facilities" as it could possibly be. They have 1 or 2 porta potties, yes, porta potties that are close.
We drove over to the "beach" and pool. You meander through so many "permanent" trailers stacked on top of each other. I am unsure I could have driven my 38' motorhome through all the cars, campers, golf carts, tents. We didn't even get out of the car when we got to the beach as their was no where to park.
This place is a fire bomb waiting to happen. Once camper/trailer or campfire problem and it will be a nightmare. How they can stuff that many in one area with one road in or out and no way to move between is beyond me. Any fire marshal would shut them down. - WYDan

90 to 95 percent were seasonal permanent sites. Staff was friendly but everyone else was drunk. We had a 3 day min.stay but left after the 2nd night of listening to noisy golf carts and cussing drunks till 3 or 4 in the morning.The pool was nice but at 9 in the morning you go there and every lounge chair (about 40 or so) had beach towels on them even though there were only 2 people in the pool so you have to sit on the concrete. The lake looked nice but smelled awful due to all the algae and I mean a lot of it washing up on shore. My daughter came back to the camper with her suit all green.We were told that the owner was across the road from us so we know they heard all the noise at night but did nothing because the drunken rednecks were regulars and that's fine there are plenty of other campgrounds to go to. Very few rental sites tightly squeezed in near the back of the pool and noisy bar so kids won't get much sleep. If you just want to hang out and get drunk this is the place!! - Roy Abramat

Park had lots of places for children to play, in and out of the water, but for 'retired' adults traveling through, I would not recommend it. Long pull through sites were not very level gravel. Office was located almost a mile from the entrance, on winding roads through lots of permanent campers, which was what the camp consisted of mostly. Only two showers, located 1/2 mile walk from our camp site; Outside porta pots were our closest provided toilets. - wheelen jv

I camped during the NON-SEASONAL part of the year,so understand that before reading. First time I've ever given a 1. I should have hesitated before coming here when they asked for my entire month's park fee two months before even arriving. This place has a lot of potential to be an extravagent park. This is a wide-open park with lots of sites. At the outset, there are playgrounds, disc golf courses, mini-golf holes, and volleyball nets. Whole park was mud. The part of the site where I parked my trailer was level, but my truck was parked on an incline. However, this was by far the worst service of any park I've ever been to. While they weren't in season yet and I knew they weren't going to be fully staffed, they never reached out to take my electric deposit - which was 200 bucks even though I've never spent over $60/month at any other park. Each site has 2 water outlets - 1 for summer and 1 that is insulated for winter. When I arrived, they were on summer water. However, 3 days later, there was a storm coming through. They said they might turn off the summer water. I told them over five times that if they were going to shut it off, let me know so I can switch over to the other water. Never told me, just shut off my water. Not only did my pipes freeze but the handle for the insulated water froze also. When I asked for the other water outlet during the storm, not only did I not get an apology for leaving my site without water for 4 days during a winter storm, they threatened to charge me 10 bucks to turn the other one on! A work-volunteer next to me offered to do it for free, but it was too late. Had to drive through ice to the shower and fill a tub for 6 days. I expect my water outlet to work under any conditions. I shouldn't have to insulate or heat the campground's water outlet. My water froze at a previous campground but I still gave a 6/10 because the owner fixed it immediately and was very sorry. This place gets a 1. Never returning. - RLT1

Sites are poorly maintained, small amount of rock with clay base. Sites are rough and slant in all directions ... ideal place for families as there is a lot to do. Just stayed one night, will not return! - bobbodean

Check in girl was friendly. The first site was very uneven and we were given another which was better. We had a problem with our awning and a young man from the camp came with a ladder and helped us. Earlier in the week it was quiet but later it was packed with lots of families with small kids. The pool is large with plenty of lounge chairs. There is a wading pool for little ones. There is mini golf and a lot of walking trails. There is a game room, snack shop with hand dipped ice cream, and movies. We are grandparents but sometimes we need to get away from kids so if we are staying that area again we will go early in the week and avoid weekends. This place is a good location as there are a lot of thing to do and see in this area. - dmpemt

The guy at the house/office brings you back to the area and lets you see and know what you are getting before you pay. He told us a lot of the area where the nightly campers would have been parked was flooded so he suggested the area in the trees. NO ELECTRIC at any nightly site. All electric and hook ups are for seasonal sites and from the looks most of them are there every year and some may even live there year round. From what we did see they seem very nice. After a few hours in the spot we got tired of the mosquitoes and moved over on the other side of the area where there was more left over dried up mud from from the flood and this also allowed us to use the satellite dish for TV as it was a nice clear shot for dish network. Air TV was weak on rabbit ears, sprint air card was roam only and slow. Area was nice and flat, good for wheelchair use, but the restroom was not good to roll in the door. Showers appeared to be pay type showers, but we did not use them. Because of the distance from the seasonal sites we did run the Honda all night for electric. We were also the only ones down there so it was no problem for anyone. This could be a nice place again if the grass was to grow back and updates were made to the shower bath house. Number of sites available is unknown. Fortunately, because we have a ramp, we use that as a table so we didn't need to move a table to the new spot. There is a swimming pond that some kids were swimming in. There does not appear to be any group fire anymore, but they do still do sing alongs sometime, but we did not join in as we were tired and took it easy. We camped here in a van. Would camp here again if they can get the grass to grow back. - wmah

Devil's Lake is a great state park that gets a lot of use as its the largest state park in Wisconsin. We stay there, on average, every other year for the busy Fourth of July weekend. In order to get an electric site for the Fourth of July, we do have to book 11 months in advance. Again, this is a very popular park. There is a lot to do in the park--hike, good fishing, nature center, ranger programs, swim, kayak, canoe, paddle boats and boards. The park is broken out into a South Shore and a North Shore both of which have concessions, beaches, and boat, canoe and paddle boards rentals. No gas motors allowed on the lake. Campgrounds are on the north end of the park. Bluffs surround the lake and are a result of terminal glacier moraines and hiking the bluffs are a treat especially here in the flat Midwest. Campsite lengths and set-up vary here and only electric is available for some sites. They have added more electric sites over the past few years. Each campground has a dump station and water is available throughout. For a park of this size, the noise levels never get bad in the evening since it's quite family-oriented. In the past, rangers would enforce quiet hours, but now it looks like DNR patrols and with staff cuts we didn't see them around too much. Baraboo is a nice little town with a quaint town square area. Shopping, gas, restaurants etc are all offered. - EllenT

Spent 3 nights. Quartzite campground is by far the best. Out of 424 sites in Devil's Lake about 100 are in Quartzite and about 25 of them are real nice. Level sites are hard to find. We camped the 3rd week of May and the mosquitoes were heavy. - myo

It's a pretty State Park, but seems high priced for the condition of the park. On the weekend, for non-residents, it's $42 a night PLUS $16 a day per person for entry in the park. And, in spite of the high price the sites are electric only. Not even water at your site for this high price. Finding a level site is very difficult - very. Some are so far out of level that they would simply be unusable for many trailers, 5th wheels or motorhomes. In the Quartzite loop about 20% of the sites are paved with asphalt. They are a bit more level than others but still not level front to back or side to side. The other 80% of the sites are "gravel" but very overgrown with grass. It's been a while since new gravel was laid. The sites are skinny, short and grossly out of level. It is an interesting part of the state and the lake is very pretty. So are the rock cliffs surrounding the lake. Checking with other private campgrounds in the area it seems that high prices are the norm and there are not a number of quality RV parks to choose from. - Creativepart

Quiet and the rate for a week was cheap at $150. (Cash/checks ONLY.) When coming from Madison, easy to miss because their sign is really beat up. (Other side not to bad). As previous review said, it needs some TLC. Is within walking distance to the town. If you don't need all those amenities that the expensive parks charge (swimming pool, laundry, cable TV, internet etc.), this should work for you. We had a decent sized pull-through near the entrance. Interior roads are gravel/dirt. Location made it easy to get our motorcycles in and out of the trailer and out to the road. Would probably stay again if we're in the area. - Ms. K

This park is not anything I would normally look for in an RV park. About 98% of the park appears to be seasonal sites (they are open from April 15-Oct. 15). Some of the mobiles are OK, but the vast majority needed lots of TLC. In spite of this we really enjoyed our stay here. The transient sites are on the east side butting up against a large meadow with a woodsy area behind that. We had a large pull through grass site among lots of trees with a lot of birds, rabbits, and squirrels running around. The park is right beside busy Hwy. 12, however except for a few vehicles it wasn't a problem. The park for the most park is very quiet. It's a short walk/drive into a quaint little town with grocery shopping about 3/4 mile from camp. Madison is only about 23 miles away and there is lots to see within about 25 miles all directions. We would stay here again. I would have rated higher however I checked out the bathrooms and found them to be very dirty. I would not have used them at all. The park takes cash/checks only. No credit cards. Very laid back management. - flyturbo60

Lets start out with the sites. They are large for the most part. Though with that none of the sites we looked at had gravel pads and were all grass. The site we stayed on at one point must have had a gravel pad but has been overgrown at this point. Also, a lot of the sites are seasonal so you should expect that. Still this is one of the quietest places I have stayed at in all of my stays.
They do promote a green campground so don't expect a lot of things you might see at other campgrounds. They have a catch an release fishing pond but no swimming area. They have converted an old barn into a game room. The games were limited and some are free and others you have to pay for. As part of the green campground they also do not offer anything in the bathroom to dry your hands, no air dryer or paper towels. Not sure if this is part of the green idea but the fire pit was just some loose rocks in a circle with a mud ring around it. It worked, but you couldn't get very close to roast the mallows without stepping into mud.
It is also very close to Devils Lake which does fill up and this would be a close alternative. They offer wifi but only near the campstore. The staff was friendly and the store was stocked with the things we wanted which was a couple sodas. We didn't have any issues with the power, water, or sewer. Though if you don't get a sewer site, the dump station is in a grassy area almost hidden. Overall it was just what we wanted for the weekend and that was some quiet family time and still got to enjoy a nice hike at Devils Lake. - Schultefam

No reservation, but was given a very lovely shaded site (back in). Staff was ultra friendly and accommodating. Didn't use any facilities. Plenty of room to walk the dog. Overall very well kept. Used just for an overnighter. Has a fishing pond that was actually being used by some guests, and a game room and a nice camp store. About 30 minutes from House on the Rock, and Taliesin. Would stay here again. - villager04

Great for families, LOTS of stuff to do for kids and families of all ages. The sites we stayed in were good sized with lots of room between sites (for a place like this). The site we had was clean, level and well maintained. The hookups were WAY in the back. Had to run about 30 feet of sewer hose, and my water and electrical was stretched to the limit. So be aware of that. Not all sites were that way, but many were. Camp Store was well stocked/staffed. Roads are pretty tight with cars/trucks spilling out onto the roads and the trees REALLY need some trimming. branches and leaves were hitting my windshield as we came/went. VERY low branches everywhere. We have a 35 foot class-A and I wouldn't go any larger than that. Roads are REALLY tight, and not marked 1-way, so things get REALLY dicey fast. This is a family place with live bands and lots of activities. Kids screaming all day long. We heard parties and loud (adult) talking until 2am. Organized events seem to calm down by 10 or 11pm. So if you don't have kids or aren't into live music for 10 straight hours this probably isn't the place for you. This is not a quiet, relaxed get-a-way. This is a fun, loud, weekend long party, for kids and adults. LOTS of golfcarts...everywhere. Everything was on the up-and-up, nothing inappropriate going on or people being obnoxious, it's just a packed, loud, active place. Some people like this. Not really our thing. Probably wouldn't be our first choice in the area, but if we had to stay here again, it wouldn't bother us. - Brian Holmes

This is an extremely well cared for facility. Grounds were kept incredibly clean and showed a real attention to detail.
Plenty of activities for everyone. The beach area was clean and well maintained. Staff was incredibly helpful and friendly. This is exactly what one would expect from a welcoming mid-west campground. - CO_Clarks

The park is nice and offers a lot of amenities for families, however, it was not very family friendly--unless you are the drinking type. Don't get me wrong, we will have a beer or 2 sitting around the fire at night, but the park sponsored activities related to drinking while we were there. A poker run at 1pm that could've matched any college activity. It was very loud and busy all weekend. We did stay Fri-Sun and left on a Monday. It was nice and quiet Sunday night (which is the only reason I'm not rating it lower). There are activities for the kids, but we left the park to get away from the drunken booze fest and took the kids to the Dells during the day on Sat/Sunday. We will not return. - Julwil

We stay here every time we are in the Madison area. The rate is based on a weekly stay. Improvements are noticed every year, and this year did not disappoint. The grounds are expanded with new sites and a nice short hiking trail that our dog loves. There is some road noise from the interstate, but it is not at a bothersome level. - Scott & Nancy

I stayed here overnight after picking up a new camper. The campgroudn is close to the freeway so good for an overnight stay. The campground sign is small so when approaching at night you need to watch carefully for it. We checked in late so we had to use the after hours check-in. The campground had identified sites by length and cost which was very helpful. We were able to secure a long pull through so we could camp without unhooking the truck. The campground staff was helpful and friendly. - Greg and Kim

People were friendly. This was a typical KOA, very nice and well taken care of. For us, not a destination place, however we enjoyed exploring Maddison. Which is about 20 minutes away. We also went into the local small town and had frozen yogurt. Best I've ever had. We would stay here again. - Brandl

The campground entrance was well marked and easy to find. The internal roads were dirt and sufficiently easy to maneuver with a 36' DP motorhome. The campground had trees everywhere, which was great. Our site was average width (room for our slides and doggy fence, but no extra), and long enough to park the toad. The pad was dirt, and the site had some sparse grass, which became muddy if it rained or had dew. There was no cable TV and no OTA TV stations. We had a full hookup site, although most sites were just electric with a water spigot here and there. The water was easy to connect to, and the water pressure was just barely sufficient. The sewer connection was 6" above ground level, making it workable, but not optimal. WiFi was free only in the office, and $5/day at each campsite. Since these campsites were $65/night, I couldn't believe WiFi was extra, especially since during Friday & Saturday it varied between decent and useless, while improving on Sunday. Verizon was 2 out of 5 bars. We don't use restrooms or showers, but noted that they had a single shower & restroom next to the pool, serving 80+ camp sites. There was a nice dog park which my 3 golden retrievers appreciated. Speaking of dogs, because we had more than 2, there was a $20 upcharge. I can't understand why it cost them any more for my 3rd dog to stay here. This park definitely caters to families with kids, with lots of games, a large bouncy pad, a small arcades, a pool, etc to keep those kids occupied, although many of those things required a $14 wrist band per child (we don't have kids), and were just attending a wedding nearby. In my opinion, the price was too high ($73/night) for the services received. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We would not stay here again strictly because of the cost, as I think $40-45 would be more appropriate, especially since they charge extra for the Wifi and kids activities. - Don Gagnon

We stayed here late in the season. When we entered the park it certainly looks very nice. They have a nice check in area / camp store / food. The person that greeted us was nice and friendly. Our site was not all that deep but it was very wide. Our 26ft trailer fit fine and we pulled our TV next to it after unhooking. One thing that really got me a little frustrated is you have to pay extra for kids to use the jumping pillow. Though this is not monitored as while my son was jumping on the pillow dozens of kids jumped on the pillow without paying. Paying for the wrist band got him access to the jumping and the mini golf. The mini golf was ok but looks like it had been abused all summer maybe multiple summers. They also have a basketball hoop and a place for skateboarding. Some other things they have are giant connect four, giant checkers, giant chess, and a playground. They also offer cabins so you could meet up with other family at this campground that don't have RV's. The rest rooms and showers were fine. The shower we used only had and on off switch. That meant it starts off cold and then gets hot. You have no control of the temperature. This was a challenge with our son as it got to hot for him. Overall I enjoyed the stay and wish we had more time at the campground. - Schultefam

One of the worst campgrounds I've been to. We chose Baraboo Hills because the website makes it look amazing. Ton of amenities that include pool, swim pond, park, jumping pillow, etc. However, upon our arrival the first thing we noticed was everything is very old and dingy. Then moving on to our site I was shocked at the condition of it. It was mostly gravel with the exception of a small grass area that was full of weeds. The kicker came when we found out you had to purchase 25.00 wristbands in order to use the jumping pillow and a few other amenities. We checked out the swim pond and it was a funny color blue so we never allowed our kids to go in it. The pool area looked clean but needed updating as far as the chairs went. We spent very little time of our 4 day stay in the campground. Decided to keep our days filled in the Dells. I understand why there are no refunds after paying full amount to reserve site, we would have left immediately if we hadn't already paid over 200.00. Will never visit this campground again. - CindyR123
