A nice, family-oriented campground on the shore of Green Bay. Note, however, that there is a marsh between the campground and the lake, so there's no beach. But this area is great for bird watching. Verizon was 4G with an antenna and amplifier, but without this speeds tended to be lower. - zulu

This is a nicely run county park, with a great host this year. The fully shaded mature trees cover over pleasantly spaced apart sites. Electric on all sites, water on some. Sites down near the end of the loop (12-20) don't have water hookups on the site, but water is available at the entrance to the park near the dump station. The Great Lakes waters are now on the rise again, so soon more of the beach area will return to normal as in years past. Two breakwaters angle out into the harbor for protection, and make a nice walk with the dogs for a change of pace. Well-designed boat launch area with 3 docks, $3 fee to launch. Plenty of parking area for the boat trailers and vehicles, far away from the campground. Firewood is $5 a wheelbarrow full, please don't bring outside wood here, as Wisconsin is trying to keep down the Emerald Ash Borer infestation, and the whole campground is mostly ash trees. It would be awful to lose all the trees in the entire park! Big playground area with new equipment for the kiddos. We like site number 16 that we pull in nose first and enjoy the view out the front windshield. Blacktopped road and some sites blacktopped, rest are grassy areas to pull into. This year they started group camping way down on the other end of the park by the pavillion. Fee is $75 for up to 6 campers, around a central pavillion, $25 refundable deposit.. what a great way to camp with a group of friends for a reasonable fee all in a cluster, without take up 6 spaced out campsites. Quiet camping on the shores of the waters of Green Bay where it meets up with the waters of Lake Michigan. - kareninthewoods

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

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

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

Very nice city park. Campground host was helpful. Showers dated but clean, with plenty of hot water for a quarter.
Park is adjacent to a school. There is some occasional traffic noise. Sites are back-in. Most sites have little to no privacy, but we were here mid-week so there were few other campers.
A very good value, we enjoyed our visit. - Organic1

A small park, in the middle of the city of Peshtigo. Located in a park complex, including access to the Peshtigo river with boat launch, sand beach area, two pavilions available to rent, band shell with weekly Wednesday night music, horseshoe pits and 9 "hole" Frisbee golf course. Nice playground structures for the kids. Two public rest rooms, main with coin operated showers. Showers and rest rooms are closely monitored and kept clean. Campground host on site. Dump station. All sites have water and electric with picnic table, garbage cans and fire pits. Free Wi-Fi . Campground is separate from other activities. They also have two fairly new cabins to rent for $36/night. Both cabins have electric, twin bunks, a small table and two chairs. There is also water, a garbage can and a fire pit. - Mike F

I agree with previous comments. Positives: Nice restaurant and bar with good food and drink at cheap prices. Negatives: Teenage summer help running the place. A small pool with 100's of kids and adults running, jumping and throwing each other in. An accident waiting to happen with no supervision. Drive carefully with kids flying around on bikes and not paying attention. Very inconsiderate campers with dogs running loose. Naturally they 'do their business' on your site and won't clean it up when told. It might be nice during the week, but I would never go back there on a weekend. - russ1102

Park is average. Access to some of the amenities is restricted because of the HUGE numbers of children using those amenities. Not a park for older (non-children) folks, during peak season. New restroom facilities are topnotch/ clean. Pull-through sites are very long, grass and gravel, and level, extremely wide by our standards, though the park only has a handful. Not an overly friendly park to big rigs. More suitable to smaller trailers, small 5th wheels, tents. Fortunately we had a pull-through at the far end so away from the masses of people. WiFi is bad, worked for a couple of days then went to nowhereland fast. Pool(s) are overwhelmed by kids (many kids!) making it not pleasant for childless and older folks to enjoy. They have a waterpark theme (slides, etc.) and a very strict control system for accessing (wristband). On the other hand, today we came back to the park and there were a TON of cars (non-registered visitors) using the pool(s). It was a madhouse. Too many visitors to their facilities that it overwhelms their amenities. Fortunately where we parked, it WAS quiet, (away from the pool). The dumpsters tend to get full fast and smell bad quickly. Those parked next to them, can expect tons of flies. Park staff is young/teens and not too friendly. Saw a couple of younger folks mowing, but basically not very visible. When we checked in, the teenager told us the wrong way to enter our site, we had to make another loop to get righted. We probably wouldn't come back again, only because we're not in favor of large groups camping together, etc. - ErinandCorbin

This is a very nice campground with full services and then some -- including a nice store with plenty of supplies, swimming pool, restaurant, bar, and more. The folks running this place are very customer service oriented. Our biggest problem, like so many other campgrounds, is that we state we need good internet because we are travel writers. They tried to accommodate us; however, even then, it works, but, mostly very poorly, and sometimes not at all. Only other problem was this morning when their lawn folks came in - no problem -- would expect them to keep the grounds nice. But for whatever reason, they kept utilizing our camping spot as a turnaround zone, over, and over, and over. Though we were trying to work, we finally left the campground, as it became sooooooooo annoying. Nothing about "quietwoods" with those guys. - Legends Of America

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

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

Plenty of hiking trails and several ways to get down to the beach on Green Bay. We got the bikes down and headed down the paved trail to find it joins with paved county roads. Great place to visit Green Bay from and not far from the Shrine of Good Help which is a truly spiritual experience. Contrary to previous posters had no problem with 30 ft RV with a tow vehicle and big turning radius. - stetwood

Concrete pads for RVs, separate tent area. Some sites not suitable for larger rigs: too short, no pull-throughs. Shaded sites but campground very open, no barriers between sites. Good for stopover. Some noise from nearby highway. Good for launching boat into Green Bay. Laundry also available. Flush toilets, fire rings. Not too far from Green Bay or good stopover on way to Door County. 20 or 30 amp sites. Some water hookups very far. - Sparky6238

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

Yes there are Geese however did not have an issue with them in the park its self. In driving into the park I noticed the waste treatment plant and thought the worst, however never did smell anything. Maybe the wind was blowing the other way. The park is well taken care of and a great spot for long term or over night, as I did. I would stay there again! - rving4fun

This is a small, manicured county park with level spots, good wifi, located right on the river. However, it is also located directly across from a sewage treatment plant, next to a railroad with trains that blast their horns at 2 AM and again at 3 AM, and down the block from an industrial complex that seems to run day and night. If that weren't enough, their pretty green grass is littered with duck and goose droppings. We won't be stopping here again. - Dapper
