We camped here with 2 other couples, we each had our own campsite. The sites were wonderful, grassy and large. It is on Green Bay, there is a boat landing, but no beach. There are only 34 sites and it is quiet most of the time. No one came to check us in, we just pulled in our site and saw that there was a paper on the pole. Restrooms looked ok, showers were pay; $.25. There was a dump station but no connection for black water flushing. Some bugs, especially in the evening. Fire pits and picnic tables provided, some better shape than others. We had electric and water hookups but the water had an awful sulfur (rotten egg) smell. Apparently they have drilled a new well and are working on a fix. - dalebonnie

Stayed at the campground for 4 days. we had rain which was no big deal, however, fire pit flooded to the top with water and I had to bail it out as it would not drain. Simple pit toilets, very nice campground. However, they drilled a new well for the water and it REALLY stinks because of the sulfur in the water. It was strong enough to make it impossible to drink. But we used it for washing, etc. Note, not all sites have water. - creinemann

We stopped over night at this campground. The park is well cared for and has excellent access to Lake Michigan as well as a boat launch area that is part of the park. I'm not sure how it would be camping for any length of time as there seemed to be a lot of ants all over the place which I have been told is common in these sandy areas. The sites are spread out so there is a lot of room. We had plenty of room to back in our van & dolly then back the coach in and connect the dolly on the site. There is a nice playground for kids. We camped here on site #1. We would camp here again. - Stugpanzer

Beautiful city operated park, nearly surrounded by the Oconto River. Interior roads are asphalt, with deterioration and speed bumps. Parking sites are gravel and grass, but do not park on the grass. Our site was very spacious, but awkward to back into, leaving will nearly require a U-turn. Extra charges to play putt-putt. Office has short hours. You must sort your trash for recycling. canoes/kayaks available to rent, campfire pit rings available. It has been raining steadily and we are dry but surrounded by large puddles of rainwater. Of course, we would return! - waywardwind

Sites are very small; pull-throughs do not have full hookups so had to get a back-in site which meant unhooking our towed first and parking it in an unused spot. It was quiet for the 7 nights we stayed there (visiting nearby relatives and side trip to Door County). Worst part was sites not level and could not use levelers because ground too soft. There are goose droppings everywhere; had to borrow a rake from groundskeeper to police our site before we unhooked. Actually a nice play to stay, very clean (except for the geese) but not big-rig friendly at all. - ParrotMom

The electrical service is spotty. Sometimes the voltage drops and caused one of our air conditioners to stop working. We are in site 22 and the electrical box is shared with site 23. The electrical box has a 50 amp plug and a 30 plug. It is almost 100 degrees here today and we need to have reliable AC.
The site is grass but it is level and firm. It is short so the car has to be parked in between coaches.
Water is good and satellite got a lock. There is a road on the other side of the river but noise is minimal.
40 minute drive to Lambeau Field. - pcmike

Stopped here on our way through the area. This is a small (41 sites) urban campground, but It is very clean and safe. There is a large day use area next to it is used primarily by locals. The camp host is very helpful. This CG is a great stopover while traveling through, but not very good for a "camping experience" due to the activities in the area - schools, active day use area, football stadium, local traffic. Good dump station, good utilities, local TV stations, Verizon coverage = 5/5. CG map shows back in sites but many can be pull-through since the camp host will allow you to drive across the grass to access your site. Spacing is tight between sites. There is a pay shower available to campers. - Bama Camper

This...is a weird park. We came through from the UP on our way south for winter. The Passport America price was great at $12.50, which was the main reason for the stop. Electric/water HUs, and dump station on-site. 4 bars Verizon LTE. The park is very well maintained, has a large playground area, and a disc golf course. The unfortunate part is that the park is literally up against the Elementary, Middle and High schools, so if you're there during school time, you will get to hear the morning bells and announcements from the comfort of your bed. The football stadium is also across the street, so you will be able to hear gym class and extracurricular practices. The park is also home to the Peshtigo Parks and Rec. Dept., and they were busily driving machines and working in their garages, located 50ft from our site most of the day. Being that we like privacy and at least a little peace and quiet, this was not the place for us. Maybe it's different when school's out, but the proximity to everything was still a bit much for us. - Unknown_Normal

This is our 2nd visit to this city park campground, and I like it even more this time!
Campground hosts are great, and deliver firewood to your site. Excellent security, frequent police patrol.
Badger Park itself is beautiful! State of the art playground, disc golf, and a nice beach.
There is a nice grocery store in town and it's an easy drive to Marinette for bigger shopping. - Organic1

Just leaving and not impressed. The fishing pond was awful and not usable. It needs to be dredged and in better condition if you're going to promote it as a "feature/activity". We went to the pool this morning at 9:30am (pool opened at 9am) and every single chair and table was already taken. Best part...NO ONE WAS IN THERE! People clearly left their bags, towels and shoes out overnight and staff just left it there. So many young kids were left to run the Campground with zero supervision. Foul language was being yelled at the pool by children like it was their first language. The big yellow slide was unmanned almost the entire weekend. When a parent finally had enough of all the close calls with kids plowing into each other and went to the top to man the slide, a staff member finally came out to do their job and scolded the parent for helping. Also, if you're going to have "pool rules" please enforce them. I saw plenty of people bring in food, alcohol, etc into the pool area when the #2 rule stated than none of that was allowed. Also there were ZERO activities planned for Friday. This is the first "family Campground" that had nothing to do on Friday. The big pro to the Campground is our site was a great size with lots of green space for our kids. If you decide to chance it and book a weekend, grab site 162. Also good bar food and adult drinks. Camp at your own risk. Permanent campers like to run this place and clearly it's allowed. We won't be coming back. - mntbarrett

We have been coming to this park for many years and the current staff has only one goal, "to make money at any cost". The reason we starting going to this park was they were a Passport America Park Member. The staff at that time were friendly and the park wasn't full of "non-rvers". This park allows anyone to pay the daily fees for the water park and they pile into this place. When we first started going here the use of the water park was supervised by park personnel at each location. They controlled when you entered the water slides, when you came down the water slides, etc. Now it is completely unsupervised chaos! Adults(I use this term only because of their age, not their behavior), unsupervised children running from one water activity to another, screaming and yelling at the top of their lungs, and then jumping into the pool. Most of the time they are jumping over young children already in the pool. The worse part is seeing many so-called adults doing the same thing. Music is played over loud speakers that drown out your ability to communicate with anyone more than a couple of feet away. At no time does any of the management personnel take action to control this chaos. The pool area is the focal point and covered tables are reserved by individuals who place towels, bags, etc. on them and then they disappear. Often the 1-2 hours we spend "supervising our grandchildren at the pool" these individuals who have reserved the few covered tables & chairs never return. When the original owners were in charge this type of behavior wasn't accepted, but it appears their children are now running the place and their focus is solely on making money. The park only has around 6 full hook-up sites for rent and they just installed very nice toilets and showers right behind these sites. Unfortunately, there is a constant flow of campers short cutting through these sites to use this new facility. Barking dogs "often running free" were all over the place. - Joe Heizler

This was a mistake. This is where parents with a bunch of young kids go for summer vacation. And for them, this is a great place. Water park, playgrounds, pavilions, snack bar. Lots of group camping, with trailers and fifth wheels parked every which way. Tons of kids, bikes, congestion, noise, loud music, fireworks, and everyone has golf carts! For us, it was miserable. The reason for the low score, however, is the internet, or lack thereof. WiFi is one of the most important features for us. When we reserved the site in January, their website indicated they had WiFi. We get there for a week stay to find they no longer have WiFi. None. System down indefinitely, ever since campground opened for the season. No effort to contact us so we could make other plans, and no offer to knock a few dollars off for an advertised amenity they did not offer. Most of the staff are teenagers that have little experience. The check in area is really congested and tight. They have six nice pull through, big rig friendly sites, A-F. I would not recommend F; although a corner patio site, it has all of the chaos going directly by it, and kids and their bikes cutting across the grass. These pull thru sites are gravel, spacious, level and long, with lots of grass, picnic table and fire ring. A-C have shade, D-F have little to none. They are right across from very nice, new restrooms. Utilities worked well. No cable but some over the air channels and most of the campsites could get satellite, although there are several sections that are heavily forested. - VegasVagabonds

County park accepts only Wisconsin checks or cash which you deposit in a slot after choosing your site. Treed campground with lots of room between sites. Managed to peek at Dish satellite through tree branches. Large boat launch and pier with gravel swim beach. Green Bay was green when we were there so we didn't swim, but did kayak. Campground sits atop Niagara Escarpment for some interesting geology. - Appleknocker

Wow a really beautiful county park that is very well maintained with large spacious sites. The sites and park is heavily wooded and there are some good hiking trails and spectacular views of Green Bay. Great location for visiting Door County and the area. We are planning a return to this nice park. Note: Brown Country does take reservations and does accept credit card payments with the reservations. - OldeJohn

Because of a scheduling snafu on our part, we arrived on a busy June Saturday with no reservation. The camp hosts worked with us and, with the help of a very kind Ranger found us a good site. (We had begun looking for WalMarts!) The campground is beautiful, lots of trees, close to the water. A walking trail down to the lake is challenging. Bathrooms were old, but clean. We would recommend this campground. . - Paul and Jeannette

Lovely, serene setting with mostly level sites, but an older campground created when RVs were much smaller. Not "big rig" friendly at all. Roads are narrow with lots of overhanging branches that make navigation in a large RV very difficult. No sewer or 50 amp service. Not all sites have even 30 amp service. Summer weekends are Very busy. Checkout time is 3:00. If you have a big rig, you might as well wait til Sunday at 3:00 to come in to find one of a few spots that you can navigate to and use.
Sadly, they do not take reservations. Weekends fill up fast. Campground choices near Green Bay are extremely limited, so we have camped there due to no better choice. - jpainter01

Employeees are friendly and helpful. We have been camping here on this same weekend for 4 years and always have a good time. Swimming pools are nice and they have horseshoes, shuffleboard, mini golf, a DJ at night and kids activities. The bathrooms and building structures need updating. They are starting to get that runned down condition. - carmenhass

Very kid friendly. There was a beach and water within walking distance and the rest of the Dells was convenient to get to from here. We were camped in an open field that was easier to get into than the areas with trees. We did not have sewer and their dump is hard to get to. - R&G

The site is kid friendly with nice pools and play areas. The campground is too far south for most of the stuff to see in Door County. We should have stayed near Fish Creek because it was an hour drive each way to get somewhere because the site is in the country. For adults, the sites can be too small for backing a popup. I had to find the 3rd site to be able to get into the site. The trees are close, which made parking an issue. The bathrooms near the pool were not clean and the shower drain backed up in both the men and women bathrooms. - Michael from Illinois

This is a pretty park that can be hard to find as it is over the railroad track behind the Kmart. The turns were a little tight for our 40' motorhome but manageable. The riverfront is very nice with a view of a shipyard across the river in Wisconsin. Very few sites will allow for satellite TV. Sites vary in length so some will only accommodate smaller units. - seeyajohn

One of the very best places we've ever stayed. Lots of gorgeous and well-maintained grass. Friendly and helpful park staff. Stayed from June until October and plan on returning. Close and convenient but quiet. No pool so not lots of children which I enjoy. Huge camp sites. Across from Marinette shipyard which is amazing to see the huge naval ships. Clean and roomy showers. More positives than negatives, for sure!! There are train whistles at times but who needs constant sleep when you're retired :) Some geese but other campers help chase them away to avoid their nastiness. Bring some warm clothes because some days are chilly (60s). It's rained a lot this summer (2017) and some sites flood but the water goes down quickly. You can keep to yourself or socialize with other retirees. We love this place. - K and s

This is an exceptional campground. A bit of highway and train noise, depending on the area of the park. But, overall excellent! - VanessaN

Just wanted to take this opportunity to thank Peshtigo River Campground for yet another great stay! We truly appreciate how clean the campground is along with the bathrooms and showers. The campground is a great size we enjoy our walks and meeting some of the seasonal campers. Everyone is so friendly. People in our group really enjoyed the tubing and those of us who did not go tubing, enjoyed watching all the tubers return to the campground. - Tina_Menasha

As usual our stay was wonderful. We had 7 families (7 sites) in our group for this trip, they really enjoy tubing and Peshtigo River Campground does a great job! The bathrooms and showers are always clean. The sites are big, we never have a hard time parking our camper and getting it level. The shade is plentiful. We had access to a covered pavilion for our group meal which worked out perfect. We were pleasantly surprised to see the updating going on at the campground. John and Gloria and team take great pride in the campground and it shows. This year was our 12th year of camping at Peshtigo River Campground and counting. One more plus of the campground is that it is close to town. If (and when) we forget something, if it is not available at the campground store it is just a quick run into town. And there are some really cute stores in town to stop at! :) - Tina o

We stayed here in our 28 foot travel trailer. My nephew and his friend stayed in a tent on our site with us. The cost is $8 per person per night. However, if you want electric it is an additional $5 per person per night. That made the price ridiculous. We found the hosts to be very nice, and extremely accommodating. We like wi-fi when we camp and although we found 2 connections available, the bar/lounge bartender told us to ask the campground for the password, and the campground hosts told us to ask at the bar/lounge. We never did get the password. The showers were acceptable, but 25 cents buys you 2 minutes. The bathrooms in the shower house were clean. There were outhouses right next to our site that were disgusting. Wood is $10, but it buys u a good amount. We did participate in rafting. That was a good time, and most likely the only reason we would stay here again. - lorenanddenise
