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

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

Just what we needed, a place to overnight with 50 amp & water. Friendly service. Good Verizon signal, WiFi available but didn't use. - dmkimm

We've rated this park "excellent" but bear in mind that this is a specialized campground, open only for a few select events and we were there during the EAA AirVenture along with 41,000 other campers. Not all of them at this campground obviously. And we feel that for this purpose, they do an excellent job! A perfect location to camp for the EAA event, an easy walk to the main gates, kept comparatively clean, plenty of port-a-potties, hand washing stations, and trash receptacles. We could literally watch the airshow from our campsite in the open "back field," although not the runway activities. What really sets Sleepy Hollow Farm apart? Their genuine passion for making their guests comfortable and happy amid all of the chaos! If you have a problem, the owner and his staff start working immediately to resolve the problem and communicate along the way (so important!). We had a few snags. Someone in our site when we arrived, pump-out truck missed our holding tank completely, lost reservation a few weeks before we got here. But let me assure you, each incident was handled RIGHT AWAY, with a smile and caring attitude and with results! You can't ask for a better bunch to be looking after you so far from home! - User928

We've been staying at Sleepy Hollow for five straight years for Airventure EAA. We stay ten days every year. Jeff and Barb are fantastic. Friendly and helpful. They take care of anything that needs attention and always with a smile. This is the ONLY way to "do" Airventure. The sites are 20' x 40' each. At only $42/night, if you need more room, rent two! Water and electric at every site. Sewer trucks run every day and pump you out for only $25. Wi-Fi is available. It simply blows EAA's Camp Schoeller away. You will still meet/know all your neighbors but you'll be in an oasis in the middle of everything. Kamping Kabins are rough and simple but new. Pets are welcomed. Neighbors respect quiet times. "Back 40" sites do not have water hookups yet but lets just see what Jeff and the 'red shirts' have planned for coming years... - Texas Fleetwood

Sleepy Hollow is a "specialized" private campground/RV park that primarily caters to the gigantic annual EAA Convention/Fly-in, and is located immediately outside the function's main entrance. They also open for other summer "happenings" in the Oshkosh area or on-demand for group functions. Unlike the EAA's adjacent Camp Scholler (see reviews), Sleepy Hollow provides 50-amp electric (a life-saver in the hot humid Oshkosh summer!). There is water hookup, but no sewer. Pump-outs can be arranged. Sites are quite tightly packed but most are fully shaded and overall the facility is very pleasant, certainly more so than the EAA open field alternative. "Semi-portable" bathrooms and showers are provided and while not fancy are kept quite clean. Most clients are RVers but there are tent sites and a few very basic "cabins" that are air-conditioned. Reservations well in advance are essential and for the EAA function you must book multi-day, either full week or first half / second half. For RVers, this is by far your best bet at EAA Oshkosh. - SkyparkJohn

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

The event is great, but the campground is poor. Actually it is a meadow packed with thousands of campers. The portable toilet units are clean if the company instructed to clean it doesn’t forget it (which happened several times in our area). There are only two good things with this campground: most sites are level and you get free Wi-Fi. On the other hand it is dusty when it is dry and a big mud hole when it rains. It is loud from Highway 41 all night long. The rate of $21 does not include the EAA membership (min. $40 per year) that is required to go on this campground. You must be an aviation aficionado to go to this campground. - RVer from Oregon

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

Campground isn't much to look at as it's just set in some farmland. Sites are either grass or gravel, reasonably wide and level, but a little short. If crowded it might be a little tight for larger rigs. Power was a major problem when we were there. It wasn't crowded but my voltage would drop very low when my AC turned on. On a few occasions it caused my Progressive protection to cut out the power. I had to run my generator in order to cook dinner in the microwave. There was supposed to be cable TV but our site didn't have hookup for it. Didn't matter as there was good over the air TV as well as a clear shot for satellite. Wi-Fi didn't have very good range but I was able to get it to work with a directional antenna. Speed was acceptable. Small playground for kids but not much else there or nearby. We stayed here one night to check it out with thoughts of staying here for Airventure. - glenthompson

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

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

Found this campground after finding and visiting Tourist Information and picking up brochure (out of date - listed E/W at $24). We paid $30. Varying sizes of grassy sites "scattered" in among trees. Fire Ring - Picnic Table. Very peaceful setting. We only stayed one night. Did not use facilities so cannot comment. We would stay again if in the area. - DCM/JMB

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

Very nice park. Well maintained, excellent shower and bathroom facilities. The campground was full but you don't feel like your crowded. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Enjoyed the sunsets over Lake Winnebago. Only complaint is there was a group camped next to us, seemed to be a family reunion, who took our picnic table, thank you very much. Would definitely stay here again. - davetro

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

This place is great in a pinch. We stayed here on Labor Day weekend, as we could find nothing else. Basically, you are camping in a parking lot with a tiny bit of grass. It worked in a bind, but, no amenities outside of basic utilities. NOTE: Basically, their website and others say that you can check in at night and on weekend, via a drop box. But, this has changed. If you don't get there by 3'ish, you are SOL. In their defense, they are working on an automatic system. But, during out visit, we saw numerous folks pull in and leave, after discovering a locked utility box. - Legends Of America

It's not a campground. Forget the amenities. In late Sept., even the bathrooms were locked. There are two rows of grassy and dirt pads out in an open field/parking lot. Electrical power is centrally located with two 50A plug ins, several 30A, the rest are 15A. If you don't get one of the central spaces, bring a real long power cord or you won't reach. Water is available at all sites. The odd thing here is the sewer. Someone with a travel trailer or 5th wheel whose black valves are on the back corner would not have a problem. If you are in a Diesel Pusher, with drains in the middle, forget dumping you tanks. On both rows the sewer intakes are on high ground. The slope of the pad puts your RV's sewer drain many inches lower than the parks sewer inlet. Do-do doesn't run up hill. The only thing this place has going for it is it's right in Fond Du Lac. Downtown is walking distance away. (note that the "other" Fond Du Lac listing on RV Park reviews is dislocated. It is actually several miles south of town). - whizbang
