5 Parks near Marshfield, Wisconsin
Sep 2012 - $24.00
Sites were grassy with just a few 50 amp sites. Sites were designed with horse trailers in mind. Lots of activity the weekend we were there. Price was for more than 30 amp power. Need good pads to keep from sinking into the ground. Most sites not very level front to back. - jmlsrpc

The park is close to town. The sites with shade are very uneven and just soft grass. I had to re-level the trailer due to sinking stabilizers. Showers were available, but there was no hot water after the first day. Even though it was close to town, probably would not stay here again. - ETX

We needed an overnight spot and were pleased to find this easily located fairground in Marshfield with water & electric & an inexpensive pull thru site on grass (but level enough that we didn't have to use jacks). Although under a large tree we still were able to use get TV reception via satellite and local antenna. We also saw non-grassy, non-treed sites on gravel and along the sides of fairgrounds roads. There was a large sign upon entry with fee and other campground info. We didn't use the toilets or showers, and arrived after the office closed. We didn't see a registration form anywhere, so just put cash into an envelope, with our info, and put it into the office door slot. The next morning was the beginning of Dairyfest, with a huge Mayor's Breakfast for the community held there. What a treat! Along with live music and giveaways, $5 bought us scrambled eggs, muffins, cereal, milk, cheese, coffee (and free ceramic cup), juice AND YES, ice cream with strawberry preserves. Later we visited Clyde Wynia's Jurassic Park metal sculpture gardens--a free MUST SEE destination for all! - KUhoopsNut

This is an unusually messy park. We had to search to find someone to check us in. We finally found someone in the attached bar. This is a very dirty park. It is like a bad State park gone really bad. We will never stay here again. - Shadoe

This place has all the amenities, but is in a generally run down condition. Roadways were poorly maintained with many bumps and potholes. It was a weekend and vehicles were everywhere, making it difficult to traverse to/from our site. Rest rooms and laundry facilities were dirty and in poor shape. Hookups were not well marked and disorganized and we found that we were overlapping other peoples' cables and hoses to get to one that was accessible. We never did find a sewer hookup. We had problems with consistent power output. - Sunny5

Nice park, lots of trees. Not big rig friendly. Narrow Roads, low hanging limbs, trees close to roads, tight turns. I have a 38' fifth wheel and according to the website information it seems big rig friendly. I even called the office to make sure but the woman on the phone looked online and told me what I already knew. She apparently had never been out to the park. I found out it was not big rig friendly. Sites are big enough IF you can get in them. I would not return. To bad, it's a nice park on a nice lake at a good price. They have a 2 night minimum stay. Would have rated it higher if it were big rig accessible. Make sure to take on water at the "A frame", it's at the dump station a few miles before the campground. No spigots in the campground so you have to go all the way back to the dump station. - Coley

This was actually our first experience that we wish we would have paid better attention to the negative reviews. I do want to point out that we didn't have any negative experiences with any of the staff, but the property itself was the problem for us.
The sites are very close together. This is the closest we've been to our neighbors in any campsite. Not only that, but with our trailer and truck parked perpendicular to each other, the entire driver's side of my truck was sticking into the road. I understand this was because I have a 34' trailer, but the staff stated they would have no problem accommodating the space I needed. The layout was easy to understand, but the roads were very narrow, and there were decorations on the corners that made turning a little rough. Backing in wasn't easy due to this either, and since everything is dirt/gravel, I'm only happy it wasn't wet. The site wasn't level, and I'm told we had the most level site on the property. The sites didn't appear to be kept up by the owners, I'm confident we left the site much cleaner than we arrived.
There wasn't really much to do in the area either. We did allow our little one to play on the wooden train (which was pretty nice/neat), and there was a little playground. They do offer a boat rental, but don't mention that the damage deposit must be in cash, with no close access to an ATM. Not to mention, they explained that they don't do their walk around until you bring the boat back, which seems a little shady.
We did have to use the laundry facilities, which worked fine, but they smelled terrible. Probably because they were next to the shower rooms and the dump station, but they smelled bad! Fortunately, our clothes did get clean.
I don't really have anything great to say about this property. The people were not rude to me, but due to the spacing and lack of activities, we will not be staying here again. - joshnichols84

Nice campground on the lake. Easy access for boaters. The swimming beach isn't much of one. They do tend to nickel and dime you. If you want to use the boat landing you pay extra. You also pay extra to dock your boat. - carmenhass

Never again. We stayed one night in a pull-through site that was very unlevel. We took a walk through the campground and saw that almost all of the sites are unlevel. There are a lot of seasonal people here, which is not a problem for us. They come for the fishing. The lake is beautiful. Actually this wouldn't be a bad campground except for the fact that if you put your levelers down and don't use boards, the wheels of your motorhome are off the ground. - mrpeepers

This park is hidden gem! 30+ sites, all with water & electricity, some tent sites. 12 of the sites have 50 amp service & sewer connections. The cost for the sites is fabulous with$18 per night the highest, there are discounts for weekly & monthly stays. Water pressure was very good. The rest rooms & showers were cleaned every other day looked good. All sites but one are gravel, which leads to my only complaint, most of the sites need more gravel, otherwise the site we had was level and had lots of room. There are tennis courts, sand volleyball and a baseball diamond.
Dorchester is 4 miles north of Abbotsford & 10 miles south of Medford. We would definitely stay here again. - Sugar's Dad

Rate is based on weekly rate. We stayed for 8 days. Campground is in a nice city park. During the week there were very few sites occupied. On the weekend there were only a few available sites. There are four pull-through sites and the rest are back in. The pads are gravel and each has a picnic table and fire ring. Only about half the sites have sewer. Most of these are in the western portion of the campgrounds. The sewer connection is protected by a plastic ring that makes it difficult to make connections. The restrooms are dated but clean. There are numerous trees in and around the campground so satellite TV reception is iffy. We found three sites where it was possible. Verizon is three bar 4G. The park has a nice walking path, several playgrounds and sport fields. There is a disc golf course. There isn't much to Dorchester itself but it is a short drive to larger communities with more amenities. The nearest laundry is in Medford. Don't miss the cheese makers in the area. For a full hookup 50 amp site under $20 a night, this is a very nice place. We will camp here next time we are in the area. - BobWW

We arrived about 8 PM on a Saturday night. Park seemed pretty full but after speaking with management on previous occasions, we knew to look for site#00 as our race trailer is 44' long. Without this knowledge, we would have had to walk to find an available site. We filled out an envelope with our info and cash and dropped it in the deposit box. Our back-in site worked well but we could not find the water spigot. Site 1 was empty so we connected to it for a bit. As we were only here for a quick overnight, we did not walk around or use any facilities. The park was very nicely maintained from what we could see. - EstherRV
