Property is well maintained and while, yes, there are some sites with no shade, many do. And, yes, there are many full time permanent sites, they all appear to be very nice with patios and plans. Is it your fancy full of activities campground, no, but if you want a nice pool area and easy access to sights and want to enjoy the peace of it all .... it can be had here at Deer Trail Park. - SerenityElaine

It is a P/A affiliate. We pulled in a little after 2 pm to find the office closed for the day. We called the number left on the door. The person who answered said to pick out a site and see her the next day. We drove around and everything looked just too sketchy. Everything looked like permanent rigs. Little rundown. Did not find a site that looked welcoming. Decided to head on up the road. - phyllen

The total price was $17.50 a night with Passport America. The bathrooms were old and needed to be updated but were as clean as they could be. They have a minature golf course and seemed to offer lots of activities. There is a dump station but no sewer hookups at the sites. This would be good for a one night stay but I'm not sure we would want to stay longer. It is half an hour from Rudolph and the cheese factory that was interesting. It rained and there were large bodies of water all over. Most were gone by the morning. - rolling homeless

We chose this campground due to its location and distance from our previous night stay. The contact person is quick in responding and helpful. This campground is at a local gun club and it is my understanding they hold large meets throughout the year. This is a large campground but does not seem heavily used. There was one facility for bathrooms and showers but we did not check them out. The sites are pull through with full hookups, but some of them slope so you may need leveling blocks. With the general layout and space, I don't see why some of the sites slope as they could be graded for a better parking experience. This park was not crowded at all and the camp host was very willing to help us find a different site. Overall it was a good experience here. Nothing much to do in the area but again this is a gun club campground and for those purposes it is excellent as competitors would have plenty of spaces to stay. We would stay again if on the area. - JonesAussies

It's been a year since last review, just wanted to say everything is the same. If you know Wisconsin in the summer, on the weekend everything is booked and reserved. This is the one place you can get a big rig into without reservations. Not much to do in park but if you have something going in area, this is a great place to park. - what next

So nice to find full hookups in this part of Wisconsin. Well thought out park in the pine trees. Easy access from main road. Roads in campground are hard gravel and wide with no trees hindering access for big rigs. All 104 sites are spacious and long pull-thrus, full hookups and angled for easy access. Two RVs share hookups, but the sites are very wide so this is not an issue. Good Sam has given this park its highest ratings for a campground with no store or office and bathhouses with cinder block walls. Wifi is in the works but not available right now. Manager is working very hard to make this a 5-star facility. The dump site is far removed from the camp sites with excellent, wide, level access. This is a regional trapshooting facility so it may get noisy on the weekends, but while we were there only two people came to shoot. Town and a casino are about 8 miles away. - mhollis1

We came to celebrate our son's birthday and we all had a wonderful time! The mosquitos were bad this year, but we still enjoyed our stay. The kids loved all of the activities and the people were all friendly and helpful. We already reserved our vacation for this year! - millfam

The mosquito's are HORRIBLE! They do not spray for them, we could not stand to be outside at all (we live on a farm and are used to mosquito's but this was the worst we have ever experienced). There is no maintenance done to the roads, no gravel and when it rains there is water covering the roads, sites and all of the sites are sand. This makes for a big mess. We have a 28' travel trailer that barley made it into our site and we had to back down the driveway just to get out. If a tree falls they just leave the rotting stumps and you have to navigate around them. There is no TV reception and you must pay to use all of the outdoor play areas except for the swing sets. The showers looked terrible from what I could see. This is the first and last time we will be staying here. - Bree08

This is a very nice, mostly seasonal-sites, which were all very well kept and clean. Family oriented, lots of kids activities. We stayed here for a 1 night stopover, and had a pull thru site. It was so nice in the middle and could see the kids playing in the activity area which is centrally located. Lots for the kids to do. We stayed there on a Friday night and it was pretty quiet, despite our site being close to the lodge/bar it wasn't annoying at all and quiet after 10:30. They have a nice store and lodge with a full menu and a bar/game room, with a separate game room area for the kids located near the activity area. 20 minutes to the Wisconsin Rapids, Wal-mart and several RV dealerships nearby. - ready2upgrade

I live about 45 miles from this campground and stay there 3 or 4 times a summer. It is a great value, clean, quiet, private and has several sites along the water. I literally catch catfish 30 feet from the camper. The sites in section "C" are right on the shore and most are quite spacious and private. They don't have water and sewer on the sites but have dump stations and water points for tank fills. They never fill up except on Memorial day, July 4th and Labor Day. If you like to hear Whipporwills or have never heard one at night, this is a place you should visit. They are all over the place at night. - esox07

Off the beaten path but well worth the drive to get here! After being turned down at the fully reserved state park nearby we were thankful to be directed by the SP kiosk attendant to this one. She even called ahead for us. Secluded, spacious, on the lake, pull through's, nice for kids and room for pooch to roam. It was rainy but we still had a great time here. Would return if in area. - snsfry

We stayed in Site 1 which was right on the lake. Was a bit breezy at times but no bugs. Other sites away from the water are surrounded by trees. So you have your pick of type of site. Loved this place. - User3521

Petenwell is a County Park, but over half the sites were taken by seasonal campers. Some of the campers had obviously been there a while, making the campground look rundown. The campground is divided into two sections. The older section is where you find most of the seasonal sites. Of the available sites remaining, a few are reservable. There are very few sites available on the lake shore of Lake Petenwell (a huge lake by the way). Most of those are already taken. So realistically, if you are going to camp here, you will end up in the treed part of the campground. The shade there is nice, the bugs aren't (including mosquitoes). There is a newer expansion area that we would have stay in if we had known about it. It was definitely not as full, a lot less seasonal sites, and easy access to the shore of the lake.
Some sites have water and 50 amp electric, some don't, so ask. The main roads are paved, the rest are dirt. The sites can be grass if you are not under the trees, dirt if you are. The campground can accept big rigs, but you have to be careful about what site you choose. We ended up giving up our reserved site because we couldn't fit. We ended up across the street that we could fit into. The staff was very accommodating about us moving, friendly too!
Bathrooms are ok, nothing to cheer about. Showers require quarters to operate. The beach was very nice, the marina excellent. The playground in the expansion area was new.
You can get Verizon 4G in the park, but it varied upon where you were. I ended up using my cell phone booster part of the time. A family member had an smart phone from one of the smaller local carriers and could only get a signal if she stood in the middle of the park. There were 6 OTA television stations.
All in all, if you go here, I would to the newer expansion area over the older area. But I doubt if we will ever go back to this campground. - cmgoeke

Very nice park. No four wheelers racing through the park. Very nice family and fishing park. Clean, seems to be well managed. Normally do not stay in a county park, but this is a diamond in the ruff for sure. Will come back or sure. - Camping Somewhere

Park is clean and quiet. owners treat you like family! Showers and bathrooms are clean! Minutes from Lake Petenwell beach and boat launch! Won't stay anywhere else when going to Lake Petenwell! - Jefe

This is a five year old campground with the promise of exspansion in the near future. No, they don`t have a pool or even being located on the shores of Lake Petenwell, but they are only one mile from the Tenth st. boat landing and beach. If you are tired of the hustle and bustle of the larger campgrounds, then, just maybe this is the campground that you should check out. The lots are flat and seem to be laid out fairly well. - traveling faemer

This used to be a KOA which is to bad for KOA because it would of been one of the nicer ones I stayed at. They have a large pool and swim pond with a bunch of inflatables. We pulled in on a Saturday night and the park was half full. Spots are a wee bit larger then you would expect from a private park with 2X sewer drop at each site and fairly level gravel sites. The park is on the newer side and they did a nice job of setting it up. The only bummer is its close to the freeway and at night you can hear the traffic. It was not horrible but noticeable to the point I ran the fan to drown the noise. I would stay again and might make it a regular stop if it was not so close to the Highway. - Campingwi

I just called them and was advised that of a week ago they are no longer affiliated with LOA. They are now called The Oasis Campground and Water Park. - jackmroz

This is a great, newer campground, and one of best out of 13 we stayed at in trip. It is one of KOA's "Journey" campgrounds, meant to be near interstates as handy stop over points, but we spent 4 nights there in order to span 4th of July holiday. However, you do pay a premium for it. Friendly and helpful staff, clean and well maintained grounds, buildings and pool, nice wide roads and sites that are level and easy to maneuver, and most appeared to be pull-throughs. Well-stocked camp store, firewood delivery and on-site trash pick-up, new laundry facility, even a pretty decent fireworks show at camp for the holiday! We were in a primo site that even had a concrete pad. Only minor complaints were that their WiFi was dysfunctional (Verizon signal very good though), and constant faint highway noise from I-39. As noted by others, no cable TV connection, and supermarkets are not nearby. - We Roamed and Rambled

Sites are all gravel. Some sites are pull-throughs, some sites are back-in. Place is very quiet. Wifi appears to come from the motel, so the sites closer to the front have better wifi signal. I couldn't connect at my site about half-way back. Playground is a little run down, but very usable. Nice place to stay for an overnight. - sendthefire

Very nice park with plenty of shade. Large gravel sites and some are side by side. No sewer but a dump station is available. No cable but over the air stations are available and the WI-FI was good at our site. Staff friendly and helpful. We would return passing through this area again. - Bob & Stephanie

We happened to stay with our local camp group during the park's Veterans Weekend for free. We were warmly greeted and efficiently checked-in. Our campsite was located in a large grassy, open area typically used by groups. Each site had 30/50A electric and a water hookup. Electric was stable and water pressure 45+. Site width was generous and you didn't feel you were camping on top of your neighbor. Wi-Fi was available but a bit finicky to connect to. Once connected it was reliable. A dump station is conveniently located for use on departure. The rest of the campground is mixed into the pine forest. The park is family friendly with a huge pond for swim and play, a rec room and a nice little ice-cream store. Prior comments about golf carts are true and it gets a bit dusty when the wind blows in your direction. It was unusual the park allowed youngsters to drive the carts around at night without any lights. At any rate, the open camping area worked great for our group and we'd come back again. - Born2Roam

This is NOT a park for transients or for a weekend outing. Most of the spaces are "seasonal" or "permanent" (they are purchased and used by part-time residents). We were lucky to be able to reserve a site that was isolated and had a great amount of space, but we got to listen to the seasonal residents having their patio/garden parties each evening.
Golf carts abound in this park, and many are driven by children or teenagers. Each evening there is a "parade of carts" with residents continuously driving around the facility with wine glass or bottle or glass in one hand while driving (usually faster than the posted 10 MPH limit AND ignoring one-way streets) until after the sun sets.
Teenage staff at the office and around the facility; never once saw any sign of adult supervision of the sites or streets.
Don't consider a stopover or a weekend here. - grandflic
