Chose this campground as it was rated highly by a friend. Owner was arrogant, pricey for what you get. Had to buy wood to get a grill vs a fire ring.
Charged for showers: 3 minutes = 50 cents.
To clean fish: 3 to 4 dollars.
And 5 dollars to dump.
Only thing going for this campground was the view. Won't be back. - M and B

Sites were unlevel and gravel. Owner made it plain there were no discounts honored. We stayed in pull-through, as we did not want to disconnect tow. Our area had porta potties that were in horrible shape and the smell was intolerable. Electric hookups were in very bad shape and tripped our breakers when we plugged in. Stayed here one night as we were on the road. Beautiful scenery right on the water, but had quite a bit of high grass. This is more of fishing/camping site. Showers and main building were in OK shape. - PTurn85

We stayed here over Memorial Day weekend, so we should consider ourselves to even find a camping spot on a holiday weekend. When we arrived (9:10 PM) the office at already closed (9:00) for the night. The problem is they do not have any kind of night check-in procedure unlike any of the 50+ campgrounds we have stayed at over the last five years. The office is located in the owners house, so they were quite upset that we bothered them after the office had closed 10 minutes earlier. After we checked in they gave us a map and wished us luck. We had to find the site ourselves in the dark because the "office was closed." Parking was challenging because the sites are very close together and the roads have very tight corners. The lake flies were absolutely terrible and swarmed around us by the thousands. We had a three night reservation, but left left a day early because doing anything outside was not pleasant. We did not try the bathrooms because the walk was too far with all of the lake flies. On a positive note, our neighbors were friendly, the power was reliable, the water was OK, and we had one of the few full hookup sites. Overall, we pretty much disliked the campground and would not stay here again. - User3641

This is an RV park of last resort. They don't tell you what the rate is until you have already parked. Cash only. Was told rate was $50 per night - for a gravel spot with electricity and water. No cable, no sewer. They settled for less when pushed. Don't believe the sign which reads "Osh Vegas Palms Fabulous Resort"! - lilrvgirl

I stayed here for the EAA Airventure. Great location and the owner provides on demand shuttle service to the airport. The owner is a great guy, very helpful and the best part of the stay was simply getting to know him and his associate. He's is the guy who helps guests with EVERYTHING! I had reservations at the airpark but decided I wanted to have AC power for air....glad I did! - Troy the Lawyer

Older park with little management. Convenient to outlets, airport and interstate. We used as a base to travel to Green Bay and Oshkosh. - mogman

This is a hidden gem! Very close to the EAA museum (a must!), shopping and highways. We were here over Labor Day weekend and almost had the place to ourselves. Sites are in the grass, but fairly level. Two camping areas but full hookups were in the trees. Don't plan to be there the last week in July! But do plan to enjoy watching vintage aircraft fly over every day. - Lke

The staff is very friendly and accommodating. Is near the airport but only heard propeller aircraft, no jets. Also could hear I-41 traffic some but not unbearable. Lots of full hookup sites but most are on the grass and in the sun. We had a shaded gravel pad, that could have used more gravel, but it was level. We did have to park the TV in the site next door so it was out of the road. There are no real site boundaries and when full I think units will be very close together. If there are other units there it will be very difficult to maneuver with a big rig. The road through was soft but it has been raining a lot. No one near us when we arrived, or when we left, but needed to use 4 wheel drive to avoid tearing up the grass and road while maneuvering the TT. DW said the restrooms were clean. We used the shower in the RV so don't know about the showers. We were there to do some geocaching and sightseeing so really only used the site for a place to sleep. With FHU for $30 a night it more than served our needs. No fire rings or picnic tables. Trucked our garbage and recycling home since we didn't see any dumpsters. I didn't walk all around so I don't know if there was a playground or anything for kids to do. I think the staff is really working hard to make this a nicer place to stay. I think the area music festivals and the EAA fly-in is where they make their money. For what we needed the site for we would stay there again. - Blu1e

This is a hard campground to review. The other reviews are too old to be helpful. The campground is open year round. It is walkable only to the EAA, but a lot of shopping and restaurants are nearby including the outlet mall across the highway. All types of sites and cabins are available. The sites at the front are shaded and full hook-up which seems to be rare around Oshkosh. Some are 50 amp, some only 30. The 8 showers are each in individual rooms. The staff we met were extremely friendly and helpful. There was no staff here when we arrived; I think it is only staffed during special events so you need to call ahead. We called and were told to pick a site; they would catch up with us later. They accept only cash or personal checks. Sites were mostly level, grass with some gravel. The campground is one of the quietest we've ever stayed in. There are no child oriented amenities such as a playground. The grounds were clean but overgrown; they mowed most of it while we were here. All the connections worked well. A quiet pleasant stay for us. - Pktva

We went for the EAA fly-in. It was 92 and the breaker to our campsite kept blowing. I don't know how many times we had to reset the breaker. Didn't bring generator as we thought we would have electricity. Didn't use showers or bathrooms but looked very down from the outside. Don't stay here unless you have no other choice. - NINA W

Pretty nasty place, and terribly overpriced. The site was fairly level, which is a good thing since my jacks would have sunk out of sight in the mud had I used them. The bathroom was so old and run down that I didn't even bother to look at the showers. They had recently placed some gravel over the mud at our site. Result: muddy gravel! Our motorhome tires got a nice coating of mud as we pulled in. My impression of reading reviews of parks in the Oshkosh area is that there don't seem to be many good ones - and I'm not sure why not. Anyway, we will definitely not be coming back to this one! - LowesTravels

We arrived the day before the Astarte of Airventure. The check-in process was as quick & efficient as it could be given the large amount of vehicles checking in. The problem came after that. Chaos is putting it nicely. Although we were told we would each have a 20x30 space there are no markers/lines to show those spaces. So the folks who arrived earlier took more than their allotted space & marked that larger space with tape/flags. After driving through the whole left side of the campground we finally found a spot right next to the highway. It was muddy & rutted. I would suggest going to the right side of the campground to the 24 hour generator area. We discovered open spaces there later. The sound of a generator 24 hours can't possibly be noisier than that highway was. The dump stations were easy to access. We left 3 days early & the checkout/refund process was quick $ efficient. Highly recommend EAA put some serious thought into lining out spaces for the future to control the spread of the greedy folks. We would never attend this event in our motor home again. - HS R.

We arrived for the EAA Air Show and stayed for 8 nights. You must be an EAA member to use the campground. Check-in was efficient. We were told to go to the right and pick any 20 X 30 foot of lawn we wanted. We found a patch of lawn between two trees that provided some shade. There are no services unless you chose to purchase an electric and water site for $67.00 a night. This is the campground if you want to see the EAA Air Show without moving your car. There is a multi lane dump station and numerous fresh water fill up stations. Tips: bring a gray water dump container, a generator for power, rope to mark your space, stakes, and containers to haul fresh water. - travelcouple

This is a specialized campground open for EAA's Air Venture during July. If your looking for a resort with lots of amenities this is not it! It's dry camping with the friendliest bunch of aviation nuts that you will ever meet! This year we arrived three days before the start of Air Venture and the campground was about half full. By the opening day it was close to capacity. This year according to EAA officials was the first time ever, that the campground was full to capacity. They have installed several new restrooms and showers so that helped with the huge crowds. But, with 40,000 campers things can get hectic. The Port-a-poties near our rig were pumped twice a day and kept fresh and clean. Fresh water and pump-outs are available at your site for $20.00 for each service or you can drive to the dump station. When it's dry it does get dusty, but this year the rains kept the dust to a minimum and in our area mud was never a problem. Considering this is a once a year event and that the entire operation from the check-in to check-out is all staffed by volunteers, I think you find that Camp Scholler is a pretty amazing place. After all, it's really all about the airplanes! Also: the friendly bunch of aviation enthusiasts that will be parked next to you. - happyflyer

Campground is unusual, pretty much in the city of Oshkosh so close to restaurants and shopping. It is fairly quiet given the location. A lot of tent sites and 20 or so RV sites. The pond is OK for a walk around but the fish I found were very small.
We were in a site (W4) on the west side of the grounds. It was barely deep enough for our trailer but had good width. It has been wet in WI this year and that entire area was rutted and muddy, so the truck and trailer both were mud covered when we left. If not for that the stay would have been nicer. Gravel roads were also muddy in spots. We looked like we were off-roading by the time we left. - Mudpuppy78

We've stayed at Hickory Oaks more and more over the last few summers. They keep updating the campgrounds with gravel sites and road as it's getting more and more use during the summer venues Oshkosh offers. There's also a few cabins available with a large pont with sandy swim area.
It would be nice if the sites were laid out better for more angled back in and pull through's. Electric and water is okay for about 15 or so but no full hook-ups as they'd have to annex to the city to do that, so they provide a pump service if you have an extended stay and a dump station for when you pull out. - MicknPeg

A pleasant surprise - CG with a 4200 ft landing strip. Fly in or RV in!! Nice setting in wooded area with an unusual positioning of sites - mostly good. Not a row after row! Position of water and electric boxes shared by 2 (electric) or 4 (water) is awkward but ok - maybe needing an extension. Dump station is easily accessible. We stayed here 1 night in a class B MH - no slides or toad. Showers are clean and very usable. We would stay here again! - KAZIMIRA

We have stayed at this park several times over the past two summers because it is near to family and convenient. It lacks sewer and water hookups, but large, clean bathrooms make up for it. The park is well maintained, with long, level, gravel pull through sites. - USA-RVNomads

Small but impressive campground. Price is excellent but there is no sewer hookup and 50 amps are limited to very few. Self register, dump station and water available. - Karen86
Jul 2014 - $15.00
This is intended as an overnight park. The sites are level, gravel with easy access in and out. There is very limited 50-amp. Water and dump is at the office. There are 2 bathrooms / showers in the office area. You will need the key code to use them. Call for the code if needed. Phone and your cellular device will run on 3G, so slow loading on the Internet. There is clear reception whether dome or portable dish. There is no Wi-Fi in the park. We have stayed here 3 times for multiple nights and will return when we return to the area. Address is 1938 E. Main, Omro, WI 54963 - Workamper04

Site 43 great spot tucked off alone with a lot of privacy. No water or sewer. Bathroom building near to our actual site did not have any showers. Park shower block a bit further away was a bit dirty and you have to pay for use. Fifty cents minimum for 3 mins. Stood a good minute waiting for water to warm (no taps to adjust just a jet on wall) then when it did, and I started showering, drain quickly blocked up & I was stood in pile of water. Staff @ store very young, need some customer service experience. Park along waterfront nice however had no trash cans at all, and one dog waste bin only. Led to lazy people over weekend use leaving rubbish we thought. Nice sunset views over the lake. - leemhicks

One of my favorite campgrounds... Nice hiking trails and biking. Playground equipment for children is very nice too. - Escape2country
Jul 2013 - $20.00
Lovely little campground! Electric sites, BYO fresh water, although you can fill your tank at the camper registration/store. We stayed on Site 6, couldn't see the lake from our site, but the other sections had some views of the lake. Lots of nice landscaping and playgrounds for kids. Bathrooms/showers were clean, bring your quarters for the showers. Rangers were visible and polite. Fire pits were located kind of away from the site, which we liked a lot. Store had a few necessities. Dump station an extra $3. Some trails which we didn't do this time, but will try next time. Will definitely come back again. No real website for this place, you have to call to make reservations. And they are pretty busy, hard to get in. - CramerCamper

We stayed one night on our way to Peninsula State Park, Door County, Wisconsin. We arrived on a Sunday evening and most camping spaces were vacant. Lots were very spacious. Only a few small trees in our area. We pulled into our site. No cable, no internet,no sewer. There was a distant view of Lake Winnebago. They have a pool which we did not use. We really liked the extra large dog park. However, if you have an escape artist he could get out in certain sections of the bottom of the fence. There was a large seasonal population in the wooded area. - Sunnie-Wheelhouse

This campground was the July monthly choice for our local camp group and the transient area of the park where we camped was wide open, treeless, bordered by a soybean field and with a great view overlooking Lake Winnebago. There are 38 sites available for transients. The rest of the park is primarily seasonal and their sites are located in a heavily wooded area. Given the warmth of the days, some shade would have been nice but there was a steady unobstructed breeze that helped cool us off. The campground's utility layout is puzzling at best. All the sites in our area had a pedestal located near the front corner on the curb side of the rig if you backed in. It's like they were designed for a coach park. The option we chose was to pull forward into the site so the utilities were on the proper side but you had to drive onto the grass to get your rig setup properly on the pad. There was plenty of room for that maneuver at every site. Evidently the owners don't mind so most everyone in the group did likewise. Those who didn't, ran power and water under the rig to the other side. There is no sewer, but they have two dump stations conveniently located side by side as you exit. The pads are gravel and most of the sites will require varying degrees of leveling due to the sloping terrain in this area of the campground. Patios are grass. Site length is very generous and site width is incredible with 60+' between rigs. Water pressure was good at around 45psi. 50a electric was stable and heavily used due to the heat. The park is geared to families with an on-site restaurant, a pool (always full of youngsters when we were there), put-put golf, disc golf, game room and lots of golf carts. The park was full the weekend we stayed and some of our neighbors pushed the limits of the quiet time rule by an hour. Once they left on Sunday everything was peaceful and serene. We would come back to this campground again but during the week. - Born2Roam

The park was very nice. We found out about this campground at the local RV show. We camped there the last week in April so nothing was really open in the campground but we still had fun. We loved the dog park, our dog seemed to love it. There was a lot of room for him to run around off leash. This is a nice change. The view from the campground was wonderful overlooking the lake from the top of the hill. We would stay again. I do wish they had full hook up sites but can't have it all. It does have a bar and restaurant on site and hope to come back while it is open . - splicer

Hi... just wanted to update to the other reviews. High Cliff finally was able to get the money to upgrade the electrical sites from 30 amp to 50 amp now. No more tripping breakers! Also the bathrooms got a good sprucing up with new paint, new flooring, better showers and fixtures and sinks. Much nicer. As good as they can get on the limited state budget. Note.. do NOT follow GPS to the park, it leads to an old entrance that has been closed for over 10 years and is not usable. Take 114 just west of Sherwood and go south on State Park Road to the park. Follow signs. We especially love this park because it is shaded and cool in the summer months. - kareninthewoods

We stayed in site 92 while our friends camped in 90. Both are in the outer left loop. They are pretty far from the only shower room/rest rooms, but pit toilets are not far. Overflow parking is directly across the road from 92 but while we were there, we were the only ones to use it (for our toad).
Both sites are beautifully tree-filled, which is true of the entire campgrounds. Our sites were level and most others seemed level too. There are double sites for those wanting to share a site.
Being on the outer extreme of the campground, we had easy access to the walking/bike trail and rode to a lookout each night to watch the sunset. It was an easy 5 minute ride and was walkable too. The hiking trails are easily accessible too. The Lime Kiln Trail can be muddy, so wear sturdy shoes.
The campground is quiet, peaceful and clean. The bathrooms are cleaned daily between 12:30 and 2 pm and always looked neat. I would prefer each shower stall have more room to change within the stall but there is one that offers privacy if you are willing to wait for it.
Do not leave out any food or unsecured garbage as you may have raccoon visitors when the sun goes down.
We can't wait to go back! - We_love_truck_camping

Camped at site #109. Great site, but 30 amp power kept tripping so we were forced to run extension cords into our RV using the two, 20 amp outlets. The park scenery is great, but the electrical problems (which I've written about before) continue. There's hope. High Cliff may get all its electric sites upgraded to 50 amp next year if there's enough money in the state budget. Fingers crossed. - zulu
