14 Parks near Plover, Wisconsin
May 2014 - $35.00
This park consists of primarily permanent sites, but has about 20 sites open for nightly use. It does not have a full-time staffed office, so the owners must be contacted by phone for check-in. There is no dump station and no sewer hookups, but staff will pump out holding tanks for a $10 fee. The owners were very friendly and helpful, as were many of the permanent residents. We would return if there was a need to stay close to Plover, WI. - mdtandem

We happened to stay with our local camp group during the park's Veterans Weekend for free. We were warmly greeted and efficiently checked-in. Our campsite was located in a large grassy, open area typically used by groups. Each site had 30/50A electric and a water hookup. Electric was stable and water pressure 45+. Site width was generous and you didn't feel you were camping on top of your neighbor. Wi-Fi was available but a bit finicky to connect to. Once connected it was reliable. A dump station is conveniently located for use on departure. The rest of the campground is mixed into the pine forest. The park is family friendly with a huge pond for swim and play, a rec room and a nice little ice-cream store. Prior comments about golf carts are true and it gets a bit dusty when the wind blows in your direction. It was unusual the park allowed youngsters to drive the carts around at night without any lights. At any rate, the open camping area worked great for our group and we'd come back again. - Born2Roam

This is NOT a park for transients or for a weekend outing. Most of the spaces are "seasonal" or "permanent" (they are purchased and used by part-time residents). We were lucky to be able to reserve a site that was isolated and had a great amount of space, but we got to listen to the seasonal residents having their patio/garden parties each evening.
Golf carts abound in this park, and many are driven by children or teenagers. Each evening there is a "parade of carts" with residents continuously driving around the facility with wine glass or bottle or glass in one hand while driving (usually faster than the posted 10 MPH limit AND ignoring one-way streets) until after the sun sets.
Teenage staff at the office and around the facility; never once saw any sign of adult supervision of the sites or streets.
Don't consider a stopover or a weekend here. - grandflic

In the pines, there is only sand and no grass. In the open, there is much grass but no shade. There is an airport across the road which had crop dusters flying every morning. Don't stay near the trash compactor aft of the office. It smells. Wi-Fi was very spotty. The pond is nice to swim in with lots of floating structures. Probably would stay elsewhere if in this area again. - WoodedOne

For us, this was the perfect campground. The sites are large, level, and secluded. Lots of mature trees surround each site (you can see the other sites near you, but you have 75' of woods between most sites). There are several "double" sites (like sites 2&3 and 14&15) which are great for two units wanting to be together. There is one pull-through (site 11). Nice walking trails (down past the dam, up past the boat launch to the 3 walk-in site area). Exceptionally friendly campground host, gave us great tips and sold us excellent firewood ($5/ 1/2 wagon load). Picnic tables & fire rings for each campsite. (Site 12 has the ring on the wrong side though). Park manager walks the loop frequently. No excessive noise or inappropriate behavior during our 3-day stay here. Good electricity (no water). Single dump station. Decent cell phone coverage (Verizon and AT&T and TrackPhone). For us, this was a very nice place to relax while doing activities in Stevens Point. We'll stay here again without a doubt! (PS- we're the kind of campers that like state parks, ACOE campgrounds, etc - we tend to avoid KOA and private parks) - AndersonFamily

The previous reviewer said it all. This is a very nice park with shaded sites and clean facilities. We were pleased to have a large, level site so that we did not have to unhitch for the night. The $20 fee included electricity. It will go on our list of good places to overnight when traveling I-39. - canoeperson

This is a fine little county campground, located about 3 miles NE of Stevens Point, just off Hwy 66. Beautiful location on a 271-acre county park, just across the road from 85-acre Jordan Pond and the Plover River. Excellent fishing. It has 22 sites with electric, but no water or sewer hookups. Also has 3 tent sites on co-located island. Cost is $15.00/night, but electric costs $5.00/night. Park is open from May 1st to October 31st. Paved roads in one large circle. All sites are back-in except for one pull-through. Heavily wooded. Big rig accessible with care. Shower house is moderately clean. Our only complaint was the excessive highway noise from close-by Hwy 66. - dennmattgano

We spent a weekend at Lake Emily County Park in October of 2016. The restrooms were clean and the campground is well maintained.
The location is great Very close to Stevens Point, Amherst Junction and Amherst.
The only downside is that the campground is near a busy freight train rail line and a four lane highway. If you stay here expect noise from each. - Jim Kruzitski

We stay here when we are going to the agility trials at Camp Bandy. We never have had any problems with the sites, bathrooms are clean and we have always had hot water. Sites are big/roomy. People are friendly. Although no water hook ups there is water available to fill up your water tank and there is a dump station. We will be staying here again. - myztique

The sites were spacious, and the park beautiful. There wasn't a lot of privacy between the sites, but for the price, I thought it was an excellent campground and we will return again. - Cristal444

Very nice county park, on a good fishing lake. Nice little boat landing, and also a pier nearby to moor boats near the campgrounds. Pit toilets, fire rings and tables, plus elect and water at the sites. No dump station. Great cell phone signal and air card on computer signal nearby towers. River fishing down a side road near a dam too. Newly updated electrical and water lines last fall make each site very well supplied. There was even cut firewood all over for the taking, but please do not transport any wood into or out of the park, as Wisconsin is fighting the Ash borer beetle invasion. - kareninthewoods

This was our first time at the park. We heard about it at an RV show. We had a lot of fun at the park. The people where nice and the owner was about as nice as you could be. He will offer you anything you need and really wants to know if you are having a good time. We talked to him the whole time we where there. There is a community fire pit to hang out at when it gets dark and can meet a whole lot of campers. My wife did go on a horse back ride and loved it. We will stay there again and do have another trip planned there this summer. It was very quiet at night when it's time to get some rest and if you like to look at the stars this is the perfect place, there are no street lights. - splicer

This campground is also a horse ranch. If you enjoy spending time with horses you can opt to take a guided horseback ride or interact with Bucky the horse. Our site was level (Site 1). With ease we were hooked up. We were pleased to find out we have Wi-Fi here and some TV channels. Sites are very spacious and there are a lot of oak trees and shade. There are a few seasonal campers here. Besides the horses there's a playground, volleyball court, horseshoes. You can drive 3 miles to the Hartman State Park where you can swim, explore and rent kayaks, canoes, paddleboards. The owner gave us sweet corn for supper two nights in a row and all staff joined us for a volleyball game. - antigua195ck

Wow $39 bucks for electric and water was hard for me to believe.
They don't even have a sewer hook up, cable or WiFi. It has easy access to I-39 and also that is all you can hear here.But I need a place to sleep over for one night and this area north is void of good RV parks.
The lady working in the store is very nice park seems well keep. The back part a long Wisconsin River is for people staying here full time if your passing thru you get to look a I-39. It is on the Wisconsin River. Has lots of stuff you can rent daily.
Read all the rules.
If we was passing this way again and needed a place to stop for a night it easy to get here. Just don't pay attention to your GPS after getting off interstate. - JustDon

We got the winter rate for our stay. There are a lot of "permanent" campers/residents in the park. One small permanent camper was being relocated to the spot right next to us that is a long pull through spot! Since there is no sewer hook-ups at the sites, the permanent residents have tanks under their campers for sewage collection. This wasn't especially appealing! Overall the campground was good, a nice restaurant within walking distance too so we didn't have to disconnect. We would stay again but request a site down from the permanent camper! - Foxes

Overall, good campground. The spots that were open were in open field with little to no shade. Water pressure was good, power consistent. Easy in out with pull thru sites. Don't expect to get a riverside site. Filled with seasonal campers. Lots for kids to do with peddle bikes and carts, jump pillow and swim pool. Bath house was clean but a little worn with paint peeling off. Didn't use the shower. Staff was friendly but not real knowledgable. No sewer hookups but they will send a honey Wagon by for $6 to pump you out. Their is a bar and grill on the north end of the campground but we did not stop at but we heard the food was good. A little road noise from the nearby freeway, and the campground is a bit of a challenge to get to via frontage roads. - JaycoJoanRick

Overall a very nice park. I highly recommend this place. Campsites are huge and private. The swimming lake is great as well as fishing and biking trails. - Jroget

Sites are tight due to all the beautiful trees. Overall, a very nice park with excellent/friendly staff. - DJanis

It is a very nice campground with nice playground, beach., fishing pier, couple little stores, where you can rent a canoe/boat, lot of hike/ bike trails. We had very nice wooded secluded site, but it seems like lots of them were wooded, but not secluded. There is Ice Age Trail going through that state park. This state park has couple lakes. We will be back. - basiamil

Property is well maintained and while, yes, there are some sites with no shade, many do. And, yes, there are many full time permanent sites, they all appear to be very nice with patios and plans. Is it your fancy full of activities campground, no, but if you want a nice pool area and easy access to sights and want to enjoy the peace of it all .... it can be had here at Deer Trail Park. - SerenityElaine

It is a P/A affiliate. We pulled in a little after 2 pm to find the office closed for the day. We called the number left on the door. The person who answered said to pick out a site and see her the next day. We drove around and everything looked just too sketchy. Everything looked like permanent rigs. Little rundown. Did not find a site that looked welcoming. Decided to head on up the road. - phyllen

The total price was $17.50 a night with Passport America. The bathrooms were old and needed to be updated but were as clean as they could be. They have a minature golf course and seemed to offer lots of activities. There is a dump station but no sewer hookups at the sites. This would be good for a one night stay but I'm not sure we would want to stay longer. It is half an hour from Rudolph and the cheese factory that was interesting. It rained and there were large bodies of water all over. Most were gone by the morning. - rolling homeless

We stayed here over Labor Day weekend. The sites were so small we could barely get our camper into the site. Sites are so close to each other we felt like we were sharing them with the campers next to us. The campground itself was large with many permanent sites. Too many of the permanent sites were rundown and dirty looking. Playground was in dire need of upgrading as well as the bathroom and showers. The fire ring was so close to the camper we were unable to use it. - AnneH

This was actually our first experience that we wish we would have paid better attention to the negative reviews. I do want to point out that we didn't have any negative experiences with any of the staff, but the property itself was the problem for us.
The sites are very close together. This is the closest we've been to our neighbors in any campsite. Not only that, but with our trailer and truck parked perpendicular to each other, the entire driver's side of my truck was sticking into the road. I understand this was because I have a 34' trailer, but the staff stated they would have no problem accommodating the space I needed. The layout was easy to understand, but the roads were very narrow, and there were decorations on the corners that made turning a little rough. Backing in wasn't easy due to this either, and since everything is dirt/gravel, I'm only happy it wasn't wet. The site wasn't level, and I'm told we had the most level site on the property. The sites didn't appear to be kept up by the owners, I'm confident we left the site much cleaner than we arrived.
There wasn't really much to do in the area either. We did allow our little one to play on the wooden train (which was pretty nice/neat), and there was a little playground. They do offer a boat rental, but don't mention that the damage deposit must be in cash, with no close access to an ATM. Not to mention, they explained that they don't do their walk around until you bring the boat back, which seems a little shady.
We did have to use the laundry facilities, which worked fine, but they smelled terrible. Probably because they were next to the shower rooms and the dump station, but they smelled bad! Fortunately, our clothes did get clean.
I don't really have anything great to say about this property. The people were not rude to me, but due to the spacing and lack of activities, we will not be staying here again. - joshnichols84

Nice campground on the lake. Easy access for boaters. The swimming beach isn't much of one. They do tend to nickel and dime you. If you want to use the boat landing you pay extra. You also pay extra to dock your boat. - carmenhass
