Stopped here on our way through the area. This is a small (41 sites) urban campground, but It is very clean and safe. There is a large day use area next to it is used primarily by locals. The camp host is very helpful. This CG is a great stopover while traveling through, but not very good for a "camping experience" due to the activities in the area - schools, active day use area, football stadium, local traffic. Good dump station, good utilities, local TV stations, Verizon coverage = 5/5. CG map shows back in sites but many can be pull-through since the camp host will allow you to drive across the grass to access your site. Spacing is tight between sites. There is a pay shower available to campers. - Bama Camper

This...is a weird park. We came through from the UP on our way south for winter. The Passport America price was great at $12.50, which was the main reason for the stop. Electric/water HUs, and dump station on-site. 4 bars Verizon LTE. The park is very well maintained, has a large playground area, and a disc golf course. The unfortunate part is that the park is literally up against the Elementary, Middle and High schools, so if you're there during school time, you will get to hear the morning bells and announcements from the comfort of your bed. The football stadium is also across the street, so you will be able to hear gym class and extracurricular practices. The park is also home to the Peshtigo Parks and Rec. Dept., and they were busily driving machines and working in their garages, located 50ft from our site most of the day. Being that we like privacy and at least a little peace and quiet, this was not the place for us. Maybe it's different when school's out, but the proximity to everything was still a bit much for us. - Unknown_Normal

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

This is a pretty municipal campground, conveniently located about half way on our drive from Traverse City, Michigan to Minneapolis. The location, behind a Kmart, is a bit bazaar, but the physical setting on the river is quite nice. Check-in was easy since we had already reserved and paid. It's surprising how difficult it is to make a reservation there. You can't do it online - you must fill out a paper form and mail it in with a check. We had to call to confirm we had a reservation. The office was not occupied when we arrived at 1:05 pm, but someone showed up a couple of minutes later. Roads are a bit tight but navigable. Many seasonals but sites were tidy There are mature trees throughout the park so plenty of shade. We were not able to use our rooftop satellite antenna, but we were able to place our portable antenna at the rear of the coach to receive all three Dish western arc satellites. We spent one night in site 44, a pull-through site that was just barely long enough for our 38' coach plus 2-door Jeep toad. It was level, and I would estimate the length of the site to be about 57 feet. Power (30 amp only) was stable, we did not use the sewer connection, and the water pressure was adequate. However, the water was a bit cloudy, and the WiFi was poor. There is a municipal sewerage plant next door, but we did not smell it. There is grass everywhere, but there is also goose poop almost everywhere. No enclosed dog park, but plenty of places to walk the dog. Our site was within 75 yards of Highway 41 where it climbs to go over the bridge over the Menominee River, so the road noise was constant. - mtmsf

Beautiful city owned park, staff was very helpful and courteous. As mentioned in previous reviews they do not accept credit/debit cards, cash and checks only. There are a lot of mature trees so satellite TV is hit or miss, we just found the right spot and got lucky. The only thing missing was a patio, only had soft grass to step onto. - RJ56

Lovely little municipal park. Asphalt drives and level pads, manicured grass and lots of shady trees. A reasonable distance between sites with a combination of pull through and back-in full-service sites. Seems to be a number of longer-term (monthly) campers but all very tidy and neat. We stayed overnight but would definitely go back again when we pass through. Should note that they only take cash or cheques. Very helpful staff. - egroup

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

We camped here with 2 other couples, we each had our own campsite. The sites were wonderful, grassy and large. It is on Green Bay, there is a boat landing, but no beach. There are only 34 sites and it is quiet most of the time. No one came to check us in, we just pulled in our site and saw that there was a paper on the pole. Restrooms looked ok, showers were pay; $.25. There was a dump station but no connection for black water flushing. Some bugs, especially in the evening. Fire pits and picnic tables provided, some better shape than others. We had electric and water hookups but the water had an awful sulfur (rotten egg) smell. Apparently they have drilled a new well and are working on a fix. - dalebonnie

Stayed at the campground for 4 days. we had rain which was no big deal, however, fire pit flooded to the top with water and I had to bail it out as it would not drain. Simple pit toilets, very nice campground. However, they drilled a new well for the water and it REALLY stinks because of the sulfur in the water. It was strong enough to make it impossible to drink. But we used it for washing, etc. Note, not all sites have water. - creinemann

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

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

We happened upon this park because the CG we planned to stay at wound up having no cell service, which we need for our business. Price is actually $20/night, but if you stay 6 nights, you get one free, so our total was $17/night. 2 bars LTE Verizon. This park is right up against Green Bay (the water, not the city) with several beachfront sites and beautiful views (see pics). It, unfortunately, is also right up against a major road, so there is a lot of freight traffic, and on-road rumble strips you can hear with every passing truck. Sites are 20/30/50amp with dump and fill station on site. Fill station DOES NOT have a threaded hose connection, which meant we had to drive a few miles north to the State park and pay $9 to fill our water for the week. There are 2 pit toilet stations and a bath house with flush toilets and coin showers. Showers looked a little dank, but did not use. This is a County park, and lots of non-campers come through to use restrooms and picnic. Also, we noticed people just driving through at twice the posted speed, but not sure what their purpose was. - Unknown_Normal

Passed by this park on the beach 15 miles north of Menominee. Sign advertised 50 amps for $20 (we were on our way to state park). State park was too expensive for non-resident, so we came back to this county park. We were glad we did! - DCM/JMB

(Do not confuse this park with the OLD VETERANS PARK up the road about 10 miles - both run by the Marinette County park system.) This is a county run campground, situated a bit away from the river, and a bit too close to Parkway Drive for our tastes. We could hear road noise through the trees, and nearby cottages. But the campground was neat and clean, outhouses, pit toilets and fire rings. NO hookups and well pump for water. 3 sites are walk-in tenting sites. We got an air card signal (AT&T) and liked the large roomy sites. Walking down some steps from the picnic playground area, there is a lovely waterfalls, with a little bridge to stand over them, and further down around the bend is a sandy swimming hole. Very rustic and quiet down by the falls. We really liked spending time here. First Come, First Served - No Reservations Firewood $3.00 Per Bundle - kareninthewoods

Came back again this year! Becoming a favorite campground for us. Rated a 9 only because some folks might not like having to go to the main entrance for water. Very nice new park with improvements from last year. Now there is grass growing on the sites, the shrubbery is filling in between sites and they have leveled out a few that were sloped. Added horseshoe pits too! We like the quiet rustic nature of this park. Located close to the boat ramps for the Menominee river for fishing and recreation. Up the road is Pemene Falls. Quiet rustic camping with the added plus of electric on site, and water spigot at the entrance. Also was able to pick up three digital channels here (2-1,2-2 and 2-3) but faded during daytime somewhat, stronger at night. Also got one bar on AT&T phone and aircard for internet connectivity. Wonderful hosts bring you stack of kindling wood, a pack of personalized matches and help answer any questions you may have. P.S. Fill in blanks require an answer if the showers were clean: YES NO or DIDNT USE THEM. Well: if there are NO showers, how do you answer that? - kareninthewoods

We rated this high because of the peace and quiet and rustic sites. It's a privately owned campground and a caretaker lives nearby and brings you a bundle of kindling wood and a box of matches! This is a brand new campground near the Chalk Hills Dam on the Menominee river with GREAT fishing and boat access nearby. We enjoyed the animals and peaceful quality of this park. First 5 or 6 sites are 50 amp, rest are 30 amp. There is a water spigot near the entrance to fill your tank before parking. There are no showers, but there are very clean pit toilets. Sprint air card was able to access a weak signal, which is super for the UP of Michigan. Also weak cell signal on roaming with Cellcom phone, I think it was accessing Alltell towers. We have camped here twice this summer and we will go back again and again. - kareninthewoods

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
