We stayed here for 4 days to attend graduation at UW. It was a very convenient and pleasant location, despite rain (sometimes very heavy) almost all weekend. This became relevant by Monday--when we left. The park was being closed due to standing water and mud affecting virtually every campsite and the road through the park. However, this kind of thing is not the fault of anyone, and is just a fact of the terrain of the park if it rains a lot. Otherwise, we thought it was an excellent location while visiting Madison (we rented a car to get around town and left our motorhome parked safely at the campground). There is a lot of space between campsites, and grass everywhere, so it's very relaxing. The sites have gravel bases, not just grass, so there's a firm base under your RV, and grass if you are in a tent. It was quiet despite the nearby road. The lake is beautiful and, if you have a boat, you will enjoy it (there is a boat launch). As others have noted, the shower facilities are very basic but the hot water worked fine which is what matters to us! The bath house is not too close to the campground so it would be a short hike for tenters in the middle of the night. The dump and fresh water spigots are adjacent to the bath house (no fresh water at the sites.) There is a small playground and some boat tie-ups and a small swimming beach. The phone reception came in strongly. It took less than 15 minutes to drive to the UW campus and nearby restaurants. The ranger came through every day (there was no host during our weekend) and we felt very safe. We would not hesitate to stay here again. We camped at Lake Mendota County Park in a Motorhome.

Bathrooms needed work and showers definitely needed more work. The campground is small, near a road. We were visiting friends and this park made everything convenient. We didn't spend too much time hanging around the park. We camped at Lake Mendota County Park in a Tent Trailer.

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. We camped at Lake Mendota County Park in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Lake Mendota County Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Located in the heart of Middleton, WI. Very close to lots of attractions & great dining! Madison is darn near connected to Middleton which opens up even MORE fun things to see & do.

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. We camped at Lake Mendota County Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Really nice Park. The odd # sites are reserveable online and the even ones are on a first come basis. The good - The sites are really nice, great shade, there is gravel under the grass so parking area is level and stable. There is a ton of space between the sites so it's almost like you have your own little park to camp in. The electric (30 amp) was consistent. The traffic noise from the street was there, but certainly not obtrusive. The lake is a short walk away and is very nice. The campground host were very nice and accommodating. We noticed police patrols (both local, country, and rangers) making regular runs though the park. The dump station is conveniently located and we very easy to use. The not so good - This is a country park so with budget cuts. Upkeep on some of the auxiliary facilities is spotty at best. Showers and bathrooms are both usable but not the cleanest. We camped at Lake Mendota County Park in a Fifth Wheel.

One of the Dane County parks located in the Madison area. The sites are in a park like setting with large trees, which limit sattelite use. There is some traffic noise. Restrooms/showers are some distance from the rv sites, as they service the beach and playground area of the park. They are rather dated, but useable. Water is also quite some distance from the rv sites. This an acceptable campground, while visiting the Madison area. We camped at Lake Mendota County Park in a Fifth Wheel.
