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

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

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

Three week stay to see family and visit the local library for geneology research. We LOVED the resident goose population as there were wee chicks growing in front of our eyes. The park is near the bridge, and rescue vehicles seem to only come from Marinette over the bridge to Menominee, so there was quite frequent siren noise. Industrial action by the river made for some stinky days that resembled the smell of fried power cords, which threw us off a bit at first. Staff here were excellent and during a water line issue were very communicative and apologetic about it while the repairs were being done. Fastest way into the park---go into the shopping center and right between the two major buildings (Kmart and the grocery store), and straight ahead is the entrance. (or, follow the GPS or published directions and loop through the streets wondering if you found it yet). Handy laundromat nearby next to the grocery store. Showers were private, pristine, well-drained, and plenty of hot water. Very friendly seasonal folks. - ThreeTravellingBlondes

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

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

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 park that has mostly seasonal campers. There is no water at the site and they had a very long garden hose (not white rv hose) at the back of the admin building to fill your tank. I was quite firmly told not to run my air conditioner if I was not in my camper. The site I was given was quite small and the picnic table had moss growing all over it. The oak trees bombarded me with falling acorns the entire stay. I would not go back here again. - pparker

This is one of our favorite parks. We stay here when visiting friends in Sturgeon Bay. Located in the deep woods in a nice quiet location. Mostly seasonal but we have never seen the park crowded.
The only downside is electric hookups only. Large, spotlessly clean rest rooms and showers. The whole park is clean and well maintained. Mostly back-in spaces but they have pull-throughs and we have never had trouble getting one.
Note that management prefers minimum two night stay, although the most recent time we stayed there we only stayed one night. - John45

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
