Ottawa Lake - We have camped here several times over the last few years, and with the exception of our first time at this Campground, it has been very pleasant. Staff at the park are attentive, and keep areas clean. Showers/bathrooms are kept clean and well stocked. Laundry facilities are available which is connected to the bathrooms, for a fee. Rangers are strict and make sure you are supposed to be where your supposed to be. Very family friendly, which they have a nice play area for children, and boat launch, and I'm to assume, a fishing dock. Very scenic areas, with some sites right along the cliff edge of the lake. Campsites are very spacious and airy with privacy. They have a newer Handicapped Cabin, so the less fortunate can enjoy the great outdoors. Some walking trails, with markers about nature along the way. Scenic drive through the Kettle Moraine States Forest. There are 3 different campgrounds within the Kettle Moraine Park, (Pinewoods, Ottawa Lake and Hickory Woods) and we always stay at Ottowa, and will continue to stay here in years to come. - SerenityFix

Beautiful park. Secluded sites. Filthy bathrooms. Mold and dirt in showers and on light fixtures. Dirt on toilet stall walls. Dirt in floor drains. Cobwebs everywhere. Told camp host and a park employee to no avail. - Davidww

We've been coming to this campground for several years, and it has always been a treat. There are a variety of sites, most very secluded and private. We normally try to stay at one of the sites in the outer loop that is close to Ottawa Lake. Though the lake is small, it has a clean, sandy beach and dogs are allowed to swim at one end of the lake. Several sites are actually on the lake. However, these sites are all on a steep embankment and none of them has electricity. The park's electric sites are currently a mix of 30A and 50A. There are some fine hiking trails nearby, the Scuppernong trail system is the closest. - zulu

Beautiful campground, secluded sites. Had electric hookup. Baths are filthy. Mold and dirt in showers and on light fixtures. Dirt on toilet walls. Dirt covering exhaust fans. Cobwebs everywhere. Told camp host and a park employee but no corrective action. - Davidww

Very spacious sites, quiet and secluded. A true nature lover's paradise. Would definitely recommend. Can't put a price on peace and serenity. - Southbar

Nice park. Well maintained and very clean. Wisconsin state park sticker is required and must be affixed to left side of windshield. Would advise having a toad as the lake access can be quite a hike from the camp ground. Rangers patrol regularly and are very friendly. Very peaceful especially during the middle of the week. - Paul_F

Absolutely the worst experience we've ever encountered in our 8 years of RV travels. Very difficult to find and then the trees along the very steep hills were not trimmed high enough for our motor home. The spot assigned was on a slope so steep that setup was very difficult even for any type of RV. Do not stay in this place if you can find another. - Z & J From NRH Texas

The sites are way to close together. It gets noisy. There are no activities for children, just one small playground. People tend to walk through your campsite. No one is friendly, even when we tried to be. - hippiememories

We were having trouble finding a campground. This place was nice and had all services. Staff very friendly. Most sites appear to be full-time or permanently leased for lake home use. WiFi not good, even though we were parked right next to the office. But, to give them credit, they said they were working on bringing in someone to help and were very responsive. We have only a 22 foot RV. Access and parking for a big rig looks very tough. - Legends Of America

This is a beautiful state park, however, be aware that most of the sites are very difficult to back into if you have a large rig. Our rig is 30 ft long and it was a challenge. If you have a rig larger than this the only sites you could get into would be 29 , 30, and 2. Only the inside sites have electric. Except for sites 29,30,31,32,1 and 2, it is heavy wooded and DARK. And when it rains, which it frequent does in Wisconsin, it stays wet. There is no hope of getting a satellite signal except on the few upper sites previously mentioned. Cellphone signal is weak at best. But, there are lots of nice trails to hike, and wildlife around. It is about 5 miles from the freeway and near a small town with a Wal-Mart. - sunbadgers

Family oriented CG with friendly management. Was welcomed as a transient, PPA welcomed ($18 M-Th). Lots for the kids to do. "Weekend" area of the park has no shade, large pull thru style sites. - Todd Fogelberg

General Description: This is mostly a “destination” RV park used as an escape for nearby city-dwellers. The vast majority of the sites are occupied by permanent or semi-permanent RVs. Many sites are owned outright by individuals. For the most part all sites have water and power only; no sewer hookups. No TV available. Wireless internet at the lodge only. Cell phone reception is spotty. There is a dump station on the way out. RV sites are in an open area, fairly easy to get in/out. The lodge has a restaurant. Pros: Friendly, helpful staff; no problem with my reservations. Water pressure was fine. Always had soap, toilet paper, hand towels or blow-dry in rest rooms. Cons: VERY poor showers. Very cramped stall and dressing area. NO control over hot/cold. Pay showers at 75 cents each (quarters only). My water temps were either scalding hot or near cold (same session). No warning when time was ready to end, but there was plenty of water. Very poor lighting (bulbs burned out). Restroom stalls very tight. Restrooms not regularly cleaned. RV pads are gravel; you can get level side/side, but way off front/back. A lot of driving on county back roads to get to park. AC power always below the 110-volt minimum. Swimming pool requires showers before using – but at 75 cents per shower, no one we saw did this. So most everyone using pool did not shower first. Over all, with the exception of the pool and playground, this park was not very well maintained, and showed its age. Final Word: We will never stay here again! - Seabeck Stan

This is a large, well maintained residence campground with about 18 transient sites. The transient sites are all in the open on gravel pads with water and (50A) electricity on various sides, often not the side for RV hookups, so bring a long hose and/or electrical cord. Fair Verizon voice, poor Verizon data. Good air TV. Sites somewhat sloping. PA park, but PA prices not valid Fri/Sat so regular price quoted. No sewer, but dump station available. Pool not operational when we were there. Park does not get fully operational (food/pool/lodge) until about Memorial day. - earlymun

Good CG's are hard to find while traversing Hwy 39 thru Wisconsin. This County fairground is a gem for a quick stay. 14 new FHU sites have been added recently. We were very level right away. Good Verizon and Wi-Fi. Grass approaches could be challenging if it's wet. The office staff was very pleasant while checking us in. A bit pricey but tolerable. Very clean! - retiredgeezer

Very Clean and nice place to park for a night or two when visiting the area. The sites are level and large. Power and water very good. Dump station on site. We will use again when in the area. - corky506

The staff were very friendly. They come around and pick up your trash everyday. The local Sheriff patrols the campground on a regular basis - not because there is trouble but just to check to make sure everyone is okay. The pool looked nice, although we did not use it. The laundry was very reasonable and clean. We would recommend staying there if you are in the area. - Boopy1062

We have stay here for many years and never had an issue, they enforce the quiet hour so if you are at your campfire keep your voice down. We have stayed so much that we tend to call the site(s) we stay on "our" site! They have kept the prices reasonable. They have a nice pool, restrooms, the roads are gravel and easy to take a walk. Their is a working farm next to them so you will hear a cow mooing every now and then! The owners are very nice and remember us year after year! - tammiann61

Small site. Just Enough room got a pop up and screen tent which gave us 3 feet from fire pit. Rotting picnic table. Quiet time not monitored even when a complaint made to rude management. Don't waste your time calling. NOT WORTH THE TIME!!!! - KD from St Francis

This is our favorite Wisconsin campground! We enjoy the atmosphere and the convenience of having so much to do. The pool/waterpark is clean, and well kept. As a mom of two little ones, I appreciate the lifeguard staff, and the fact that the pool area and beach are right next to each other. The mini golf, frisbee golf, and pedal bikes are all rented with a deposit that you get back upon returning the items - this is a nice feature being able to do these things for free. This campground allows you to have one RV and one tent per site, which has been nice for having others camp with us. There are fun activities planned on the weekends - and our kids enjoy the activity center, jump pillow and playgrounds. This is a friendly, fun campground. We have stayed 4 times, and plan to keep going back! Helpful note: it can be noisy late - especially on bigger weekends, like Memorial Day weekend when they have a live band play. This didn't affect us that much with being in our travel trailer, but we had friends staying on our site in a tent, and it was hard for them to sleep - they were pretty crabby the next day. - GoBigOrGoHome

We stayed June 24 - June 26 in our 26' travel trailer. $158.26 incl. tax for 2 adults & 3 children aged 7, 17, & 17. We stayed on site #1; friends stayed on site #2. I was NOT a happy camper this visit. - No pun intended. THE BAD: Our site was covered & I mean covered in geese feces. Good thing we have dogs & I was able to use their pooper scooper....for a little over AN HOUR! I'd say every 10-12 inches there was a pile. Not even exaggerating! Once our friends arrived we collected quite a bit more for at least another 30-45 minutes each. I'd say together we gathered 8-10 pounds of feces. Again, not making this up. We mentioned something to the office & they said people were coming Saturday morning to clean up. The beach was covered - disgusting! Not even a "sorry for the trouble, can we get you some ice-cream?!" Since we were on site #1 we had seen the maintenance crew arrive Saturday morning. They did one section of the beach area, left, & didn't come back. There was still A LOT left! And they didn't come by our site to clean up, or any others for that matter, just the beach area. They are also using a strobe light system to scare the geese away, but all they did was sit behind our camper. I also think they are being fed because at one point they stayed away from the beach area, but we noticed almost all had their heads down to the ground. At this site we also had a lot of campers walking through our site. Unfortunately our one dog that we recently adopted got anxious each time someone walked through the site, so we had to take him inside. It would have been nice if people walked around. THE GOOD: The pool was spectacularly clean this time. It was also nice seeing the lifeguards watching for height restrictions on the younger water slide riders. Out of the local campgrounds in WI this is our #2 favorite campground, but our #3 overall. We will be back, I just hope the geese are more under control next time. - Candi and Michael WI

Be sure to thoroughly question the site you plan to stay on. Some sites have terribly placed trees if you have a large rig. We have a 42' fifth. Plan your path to your site before leaving the gate, some turns are quite tight.
This is a party campground. So if you are looking for quiet, this is not your place. Our river front site actually was quite nice. But again, ask when you call. Plenty of weekend sites do not have shade, but some have really nice large mature trees.
There is a guarantee you will have golf carts buzzing around all day. All of them playing music quite loud.
No garbage bins are placed around the campground. You must drive all your garbage to a somewhat inconvenient location. Particularly if you typically throw out garbage while hooked up and dumping. This park has 2 dump stations which is nice, but one of them you must pull head on to a building and back out.
The pool and water slides were well kept and maintained. The beach pond had a funky smell, taste(don't ask), and color. The weird turquoise color makes you wonder.
Horseshoe, volleyball, baseball areas all look fairly well maintained. The Frisbee golf course was decent. I'm sure not many people play that. The skate park I was really looking forward to, was nothing more than a cracked up, abandoned tennis court. The actual tennis court didn't look much better. Both of which should be taken off their advertisements. The dunk tank I didn't look for but didn't see either. - Magiccowinuse

For the third or fourth time in the past 15 years, we were able to use this park for a final night of our summer trip because this county fairgrounds facility doesn't usually have anything big going on during the Labor Day Weekend. See my 9/13 review for my best description of the park. We were able to get one of the FHU, pull through sites on the east side of the park. As usual, we were able to use the the Wi-Fi for our minimal (e-mail and web surfing) needs. While there are many antenna channels, most sites are satellite friendly. If the park is full, this is a very tightly spaced park. I have always found the utility placement and, especially, the kind of sewer receptacle the site has to often be problematic. If possible, I would check out the assigned site for acceptability of utility placement. The bath and laundry facilities are in the main building that houses the office. They are modern and clean. The staff I dealt with were friendly and helpful. I do want to repeat for those who don't know: This park IS NOT in Milwaukee, it is in the suburb of West Allis. - Jerry S

Spent about 14 hours here (overnight), so just did the back-in, water/electric spot. This area is on the west side of the park in the "RV overflow" section and so that's what I'm describing here. As others have stated, it's just a parking lot. Electric and water hookups ran along the fence behind your RV. Water hookup was on the opposite side; be sure to bring a long or extra hose. Electric may also end up being on the opposite side depending on which site you are placed in. Based on the lines on the asphalt, the sites are very narrow (especially if you have slides on both sides). If the sites had been full, I have no idea where we would have parked our truck, or our extra vehicle/cycle trailer that we have. I think we ended up taking about 2-2.5 spaces. Also, if the sites had been full and people parked their tow/towed vehicle in front of their RVs, we likely would not have had enough space to get in/out successfully. Based on our angle, we did have to ask the popup across the way to move their truck so we could get out without hitting it. A lot of lights around, which was nice for safety, but very bright at night. The lot was a mess; garbage all over the ground. Staff was very pleasant on the phone; he warned about the interstate construction and gave some tips for the best route. Coming from south of the city, we took I-41 N to I-894 and came in from the west. Google Earth view doesn't show W Kearney St (frontage road) off the exit, but it's there. Exterior roads in were fine to navigate with 40' fifth wheel. Had multiple bars AT&T LTE. If they offered Wifi, I didn't bother trying to connect. The office building which also housed bathrooms, etc. looked fairly new and nice. Based on what was provided, I felt the price was a bit high...but it's a bigger city so not unexpected. - FrozenWaters

It's all about the location. 10 minutes to downtown and the lakefront, with easy highway access yet no highway noise. It's a large parking lot with a few patches of grass and a few trees. Check-in was smooth and the interior roads are wide enough to navigate without issue. The sites are a little confusing, with painted lines attempting to designate your area. The majority of the sites are side by sides, where you share a utility side and a patio side. The pull-through sites lose some of their attractiveness because they are not long enough to stay attached to your toad. The sites become cramped because the patio area is often used for parking the toad, and if both you and your patio neighbor are doing the same park job, there isn't much room left. Sites are mostly level and drainage was good from lots of rain. The utilities worked fine. WiFi was very good. No cable but over-the-air stations and satellite reception was good. Strong cell signal. Staff were friendly. Bathrooms are dated but fine. The Hank Aaron Trail is just behind the RV park and can take you right downtown to the river walk. - VegasVagabonds

No laundry on site, payment quoted on phone was then expected to be cash, more if by card. No late arrival allowed, no attempt to accommodate needs of camping arrival. Reservationist did not speak clear English. Steep, gravel entry drive: watch out for deer. Rained and concerned branches could have hit RV. Trees untrimmed.
No trash cans throughout park. Only 1 dumpster which is marked for food only specific type of trash. You're told to take your trash out with you.
Poorly lit indoor pool with no life guard. No pool safety items. Pay showers, which were not the cleanest. Grounds are not well maintained, grass looks like rarely mowed. Lots of mosquitos. Gravel roads. Picnic tables were old. I will never stay here again or recommend. - Jane77

We have been camping at The Playful Goose for 3 years and have always found the owners to be very accommodating. We have our favorite site and found it by taking our time reviewing the website map and dates that accommodate our trips.
The sites are large, not on top of each other. The grounds and parking pads are maintained well including regular cleaning of the fire pits. The beautiful marsh setting is peaceful and fun for all with a park nearby. Paddle boats, canoes, etc are available for rent at the campground. The indoor pool is great for both kids and adults. The restrooms and showers are clean and if there is anything you need the owners are there to assist.
Thank you! - RCKK
