This was our 1st stay here & it's our #2 favorite campground so far. This will probably quickly become our #1 as our favorite is over a 3 hour drive one way. We paid $165.00 incl. tax for a 3 night holiday weekend in a 26' travel trailer. 2 adults & 2 kids ages 16 & 7. We were first put on site P6 Friday night however. There was sand everywhere that caused stabilizing problems & we barely fit on the site. When I called earlier in the summer I was told it was the last site available for our weekend. I agreed to take it because we wanted to try this place out that badly. There were many pop-ups & tents so I don't think that area is meant to be for travel trailers. There was a nice playground right in the middle of the sites & a porta-potty was nearby too. We were up against a fence in the back, had to park the truck sideways in front, & couldn't use our fire ring because it was maybe 1 or 2 feet from our travel trailer. The site was very small (length & width). It gets amazing though - I wish I could write employee names here because we had an excellent experience switching sites. When I had seen an empty site I had asked an employee if there was a cancel & if we could move sites. She called the renter of that site, found out they had to cancel, & viola we got a new site! A++ We moved to site Y18 right behind the bath house, pavilion, & playground. We will book this site every time that we stay! The bathhouse that we were next to had 6-8 separate rooms that each included a locked door, toilet, sink, & (paid) shower. It felt like I was in my own bathroom at home. Very clean & spacious. There are so many fun things to do here! Over 50+ amenities - We loved the jumping pillow, the giant shopping cart, the treated lake w/ pretty blue water & inflatables, wagon rides, water wars, dunk tank, make your own donuts, & so much more. The entire family cannot wait until summer 2016! - Candi and Michael WI

We were ignored when we arrived,. If it was not so late and far off the highway, we should have just left then. The young lady at the desk had no idea if our trailer would even fit in the spots and half of them she suggested were too short. The back-in spots are nice but very unlevel, and they do not have full hook up. - acadiandave

A great park for kids, but we don't have kids so that did not appeal to us. Stayed hooked up since just staying one night and didn't venture out much due to the heat and the kids running around. Barely enough room for our truck and 5er hooked up and a good line of sight for our satellite dish. We probably would not stay here again. - Bob & Jo

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

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. - User1505

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

Very overpriced for a one night stay. It was a Saturday night when we were here, and the park was full. Looks like alot of locals, and also many seasonal sites. Lots of activities geared toward kids, and also a pool. Since it was raining, we didn't use the pool though. I guess if you were a family this might be a good deal, but for the price, I would have expected cable tv, and better roads.
Country roads leading to the campground were often very narrow. Thankfully we didn't meet another big rig on the road, there would have been no way to get around them. Roads in the campground are dirt with some gravel, and due to the rain were a muddy mess. Our pull thru was very long, and a nice distance between our neighbor, so that was a good thing. Front sloped down alot so our front tires ended up off the ground, after we put the jacks down.
Lots of people riding around in golf carts, tons of kids. We were passing thru on our way home after a trip to Canada and just needed a place to stay. Most options in the area seem overpriced. Even the state park was expensive, since we aren't residents of WI. And they didn't even have a pull thru with electric there, so we opted to stay at Sky High.
Very young girl checked us in. Not the friendliest. No welcome, nothing. For the price I also would have at least expected an escort to our site. - fly girl

Made reservations under Passport America, hence the cheaper rate. We had site 165, a pull through. The site pad was crushed rock and a little narrow, the site itself was nice and wide and long enough to accomodate the 40 fr coach and towed. The towed was on a slope because of the way the site was laid out. AT&T was VERY good as was the park wifi. The wifi is open and free. water pressure was good and also good 50 amp service. The hookups are a little far back so bring extra hose and sewer hose. They had just mowed the grass so it was everywhere. A storm came thru while we were here and the access road turned to mud. The staff is very friendly and accomodating. The views from the office are awesome. We stayed here in a 40 ft MH and would return. - walt66

After driving by their sign on hwy 33 for years, we decided to try Sky High Campground for a long weekend: Fri-Sun. The campground is rundown and seems like the owners are just riding it out. We had a reservation. I stopped at the office to sign in, the kid behind the counter struggled to get us signed in, didn't know the computer system, but did get us a map. I had to go back Sat A.M. to get signed in. We couldn't pull into our site because of a semi-truck (???) parked along the road facing the wrong way, and 6-8 pickup trucks around the site 2 spots down. 1 camper and 10-20 beer drinkers with music blasting (Fri 2 pm). I drove back to the office to request a different site, the kid said we could move down a few sites. He had no idea about the semi-truck. Went back to pick the best of the crappy pull thrus. We did end up with a nice family between us and the party site (thank god). We had fair electric power but very little water psi. We ran off our own water tank/pump. Our site was rough and weedy. We had a table, fire pit and a tree/bush. Sites are very tight with your neighbor. We went sightseeing during the day and spent evenings at our site. Campground had a softball game Sat with the outfield covering the access road, we had to wait for the game, to get to our site. The game and the evening stream of golf carts cruising in circles making a dust cloud are the activities. We won't be back! It could be a lot nicer with a total makeover and some ambitious owners. The countryside in the area is beautiful and would be a great place for a nicer campground. - shopboss

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

This is a well-managed but charmless KOA. It is very convenient to Hwy.
39 and reasonably close to Madison. (it took us 25-30 minutes) The maintenance is excellent. The sites are arranged in concentric arcs and all sites are full hook-up and pull-through. There is grass between the sites but it's pretty beat up from people driving on all the edges. The office is efficient and there is an ok laundry, a small camp store, and a nice kids' playground. - virginianola

Sites laid out in an arc, with lots of room between sites, but with the narrow roads you can't help but tow thru the grass when leaving. Good water pressure and wifi, wide open for satellite access. Road noise from the Interstate, but a good place to stay. - The Hilts

This KOA is spacious, easy to find, super staff that worked to get our traveling companions parked right next to us. This was our second visit here and we would return. All utilities were good...power, water and sewer connections. Close to a liquor store and grocery store as well as restaurants. - Sewmom

It's a state park so facilities (clean bathrooms/showers, etc.,) need to be taken into consideration. We stayed in the Northern Lights campground and had a spacious site with electricity that we booked 11 months in advance as we were here over the bust Fourth of July weekend. So much to offer at this park: swimming, fishing, hiking, paddle boarding, boating. No reason to be bored here. - EllenT

We stayed in the Quartzite campground, mostly because we read that it was more accessible for big rigs. The drive in was a little unnerving--lots of trees and very few signs to reassure you that are went the right way. But, we did and pulled in to the parking area for camper registration. It was 2pm on a Sunday (Father's Day) and while we expected the park to be busy we thought most people would be leaving, not arriving. It was packed and the line in the building to check in wound around the small space. Even so, the check-in process was fairly quick and painless.
To get to Quartzite campground you actually leave the park briefly, but even with a big rig is wasn't bad. Our site, #99, was a bit of a challenge. Most of the sites have gravel that has been overgrown with grass. Ours had a slope on either side of the narrow pad, so getting as close to centered was important. We did the best we could, but had difficulty leveling and ended up tilted downhill on the door side. We have an additional step we use and even with that we had a large step down since the entire site slanted down from the pad. Many of the sites have this same problem, but there are some a little flatter. Some others slant up or down along the pad, which would make leveling difficult as well.
The campground is very open, but you aren't right next to people and some trees are scattered around. The 50 amp hookup worked without any issues. There are a couple composting toilets, as well as a main bath house. The showers were OK for a state park, but we didn't use them. There are water fountains and faucets in a few places, but you'll need a container to use them; there is no water at the sites. They say they are completely full every weekend, so plan in advance or arrive very early on Friday morning.
We had no AT&T signal, but our Verizon had 2 bars and LTE without our booster. I will note that even in Baraboo there was little to no AT&T signal. - Uno Mas

We were in site #171. It was an open area with only 3 other campers while we were there. We had originally booked site #210, but it wasn't a good site so we were able to switch. Most of the sites aren't very level so we had a bit of trouble getting it to level. However, we loved the large grassy area that our dog was able to rest in without laying in gravel or dirt. It is a beautiful park. My husband caught quite a few fish so he was happy. We left the Thursday before Memorial Day and I'm sure it will be full up for the weekend. We enjoyed the relatively few people in our section of the campground. We stayed in the Northern Lights loop. Bathrooms and private showers were spotlessly clean. We would stay again. - Southbar

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 stayed at this campground in August of 2014 and had a blast! So much so, that we are returning in a couple of weeks. I went with my husband and 3 children and they had everything we needed. A beach, pool, playground, jumping pillow, rec hall, bar and grill, etc. We stayed Sunday-Friday so it wasn't very busy, we got to take our pick of which site we wanted which was great. The pool was nice and well kept and a there was a separate area that had a spray ground which is safe for younger children to play on. The grill was of decent price with good food, and the bar had a nice variety of beverages for the adults. I can not speak for the weekends, but it was definitely quiet during the week. The staff was friendly and I like the little store they had in case we needed something we forgot to bring from home. The only complaint I have is you have to pay to take a shower, I think it was around 75 cents for 5 minutes. So bring quarters! I would definitely recommend this place for family! - CampMamaOf3

This park has about 40 spots with about half of them being 30 amp electric. There is a water fill and a dump station. This is "campground" so some of the sites are only appropriate for tent trailers and smaller trailers and motorhomes. There were about a dozen large motorhomes and 5th wheels here while we were here. This park is located adjacent to I-39/90/94 at the junction with US 51. This campground is at the far end of the park so there is no road noise. We had reservations so there was a large site that accommodated our rig nicely. Not all the sites are as level as our site, and the power post is far enough away on some sites that you will need an extension cord. - skigramp

We gave this park a low grade because there wasn't a fresh water hook up anywhere in the park except at the dump station... and it didn't have a threaded hose bib to connect to your motor home. Half of the sites aren't level but they are spacious with lots of trees. Also the trash is very far from the sites. The bathrooms were old and not too clean. The hosts were very nice and helpful, though. Even with a low rating we would stay here again going cross country. - portecmp

This is a county park with a lot of potential. The sites are wide, however for my low rating is the fact the park is out of the times. There are no pads leveling is very hard. Some of the electric boxes are too far away for normal elecric cords. I would not stay again. - rving4fun
Jun 2015 - $27.00
Some of the sites are right angle to the road, making it difficult to back into without traveling on the grass. Fill with water at the restrooms-shower-dump area before setting up. A small park with some children's playgrounds. - stetwood

Big, grassy sites. Although located in the city, it was a quiet, pleasant park. Campground is clean; has pump-out service by bathrooms/shower house. - rnv

OK, so why a 9 rating, with dirty showers and bad bathrooms? I guess I just anticipated that as a county park open to the public the bathrooms would be less than desirable. Once you get by that, after all you are in your own rig, this is really a nice place. Lots of space between your neighbors, level spots, great camp hosts, right by Lake Mendota, greener than you can imagine, 4 bars of the faster Verizon 4g you can imagine. It really is a great place. We were here for 2 weeks and enjoyed every day here. Both the local police and the county rangers run regular patrols though the place. - rh2669
