After driving by their sign on hwy 33 for years, we decided to try Sky High Campground for a long weekend: Fri-Sun. The campground is rundown and seems like the owners are just riding it out. We had a reservation. I stopped at the office to sign in, the kid behind the counter struggled to get us signed in, didn't know the computer system, but did get us a map. I had to go back Sat A.M. to get signed in. We couldn't pull into our site because of a semi-truck (???) parked along the road facing the wrong way, and 6-8 pickup trucks around the site 2 spots down. 1 camper and 10-20 beer drinkers with music blasting (Fri 2 pm). I drove back to the office to request a different site, the kid said we could move down a few sites. He had no idea about the semi-truck. Went back to pick the best of the crappy pull thrus. We did end up with a nice family between us and the party site (thank god). We had fair electric power but very little water psi. We ran off our own water tank/pump. Our site was rough and weedy. We had a table, fire pit and a tree/bush. Sites are very tight with your neighbor. We went sightseeing during the day and spent evenings at our site. Campground had a softball game Sat with the outfield covering the access road, we had to wait for the game, to get to our site. The game and the evening stream of golf carts cruising in circles making a dust cloud are the activities. We won't be back! It could be a lot nicer with a total makeover and some ambitious owners. The countryside in the area is beautiful and would be a great place for a nicer campground. We camped at Sky High Camping Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Baraboo WI and WI Dells are very close by. The Baraboo hills and Wisconsin river are very picturesque any time of year. Wis Dells is a family tourist area with many water parks/attractions/casinos.

A must stop is the LOG CABIN Restaurant in Baraboo. Great menu (home cooking) and everyday is pie day!

We stay here every year on our way home to Minnesota from Mississippi. Last year it had rained a lot and the place was just a gigantic mud hole. I was told that they were going to do a lot of landscaping over the next year and it would not be like this ever again...wrong!!! I decided to give a try this year on our way home to see how much progress was made. The place has gotten worse. It now is just as rough, pot holes, dirt (not gravel) roads, trash bags left at site, nobody around. Just a terrible place, and what makes it worse, they have the guts to charge $4o. for this mess. Never again. We camped at Sky High Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

Sky High is an excellent description for this park, as it is near the top of a ski mountain. The road that the directions took us on to get there were a little precarious and hard to handle in our 37' Class A. We found out later there was a much easier route. The park itself was clean, but fairly deserted. Nice view. Cold and windy, not the park's fault, but not much to do and nowhere close to go. We camped at Sky High Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

We were VERY disappointed with this park. While they had activities for children, it was not geared towards adults without kids. The site was uneven, the pools did not look clean, and the showers were not good, having hardly any hot water. The worst part was the laundry. I will not go into all that was wrong there, just know you need to do laundry elsewhere. We won't go back. We camped at Sky High Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

The site was clean and level. The campground is quiet and there is no road noise. The fee was high for a one night, no unhook stay, when we didn't use all the amenities that they offered. We camped at Sky High Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a family run campground and sometimes the kids behind the register do not know what they are doing. We had a pull through, packed gravel FHU site which was fairly level, the front did dip slightly but did not have problems pulling forward to leave. When you pull in to register you have to make a "U" turn to get into the campground. The campground is quiet and there is no road noise since it is down country roads. This campground has an arcade room, pool & other children's activities. Reminded us of a Jellystone Park. We camped at Sky High Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Close to Wisconsin Dells and Madison.

The staff was very friendly. Our rate was with Passport America. There were only two sites remaining to choose between with full hookups and no reservation, so a reservation is recommended. The sites are gravel, though they could use more of it. The playground area, mini golf, and pool are well maintained. WiFi is only accessible near the pool and the barn, we couldn't pick it up at our site. We were only here for one night, but we will definitely be back.

Other descriptions are accurate, this campground has an arcade room, pool & other children's activities. It is definitely geared toward locals who want to spend the whole season. The interior roads are poorly maintained, many potholes and not big rig friendly. The pull through sites are not level and we had to back out of ours (152)since the front egress was so steep to the road. When you pull in to register you have to make an immediate u turn to go into the campground, in the busy season this would seem impossible with a few rigs lined up to register. If you have a small rv it's fine, it is a little far off the highway. When I questioned the owner on the reality of a u turn he was kind of snotty. We camped at Sky High Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Our usual stop on our way home. Lots of rain in the area, so there was lots of mud, water, and mess. The sites are not very level, and the roads need some work, lots of potholes. OK stop for one night. We camped at Sky High Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

The site is about 5 miles off I-90/94 on country roads and it a nice location and quiet. However, the interior roads are narrow and some steep turns. The pull through sites are not level and the utilities are not located in a good place for a motorhome. Would not recommend the on site restaurant due to poor quality food.

Great 'state park' like sites in Hawks Haven loop. Owner was upset that we didn't pay before our 1st nites stay - explained that rain, dark, and fog precluded our finding the door he said his phone number was on. I was told 'there's no excuse, if you'd called me, I'd come to your site.' When I explained I couldn't find the door with the phone number, he said, 'You called me right now, didn't you?' Well, yeah, the next day, with no rain and fog, I could find the door and the phone number. Then he was going to charge more than his stated rate for part of our stay, and, after I pointed out the mistake he said, 'I guess I can give it to you for that.' Well, thanks, it's just the rate you put on your website! I felt like telling him 'There's no excuse' for trying to overcharge me. The campground is lovely, clean, and in a beautiful setting. The owner just seems to be a bit of a d***. There, I got that off my chest. We camped at Sky High Camping Resort in a Tent Trailer.

After traveling for three days from Cape Hatteras NC, we stopped paid for two nights of full hook ups here and were told by some very young and seemingly very inexperienced staff how to proceed to our assigned site. When we got to our site there was someone on it and so we tiredly returned to the office where the staff did not really seem to know what to do. They finally sent us to another site where we scrapped some trees on our roof (31C Winnebago) and then found out there was no sewer connection at this new site. We then went back to the office and requested a refund which we finally did receive and left there forever. Very inexperienced young people running this park. We camped at Sky High Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

Large open spaces. Too bad the roads are narrow and steep in spots. Follow their directions for getting to the park. My GPS took me up and over the local ski slopes to get there. Didn't use the showers there due to not being very clean and costing money. Only stayed one night passing through, and the kids said they wanted to come back. Lots of good, maintained play structures and areas for them to run and play. We camped at Sky High Camping Resort in a Travel Trailer.

This is a terrific park. Sites are large, grassy/gravel, the views are spectacular, the trails great. It's out of town a few miles so is very quiet. Someone came by to "warn" us that the grass would be cut tomorrow (looked ok to me) and to apologize that we could be possibly inconvenienced by the noise. The grounds are truly beautiful. There is a mixture of permanent, long-term and short-term campers, with the permanent sites housing park models or nicely-kept trailers. Everyone we came in contact with was warm and friendly. Looks like lots of activities are available for kids. Nearby Portage is a nice little town of about 9000, with shopping and restaurants available, including Culver's, (yum), for fast food. Wonderful old houses dating to the 1800's and a bike/hike trail on the Wisconsin River. I only wish we could stay longer. Rate reflects Camp Club USA discount. We camped at Sky High Camping Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Big Rigs be aware that the roads within the campground are very narrow. WiFi did not work, except within the office, and the office was not open the two days we stayed here. This park has a lot of amenities, but the hills are steep, and the curves are tight. A nice campground for trailers and tents. We camped at Sky High Camping Resort in a Motorhome.
