Quiet and the rate for a week was cheap at $150. (Cash/checks ONLY.) When coming from Madison, easy to miss because their sign is really beat up. (Other side not to bad). As previous review said, it needs some TLC. Is within walking distance to the town. If you don't need all those amenities that the expensive parks charge (swimming pool, laundry, cable TV, internet etc.), this should work for you. We had a decent sized pull-through near the entrance. Interior roads are gravel/dirt. Location made it easy to get our motorcycles in and out of the trailer and out to the road. Would probably stay again if we're in the area. - User1505

This park is not anything I would normally look for in an RV park. About 98% of the park appears to be seasonal sites (they are open from April 15-Oct. 15). Some of the mobiles are OK, but the vast majority needed lots of TLC. In spite of this we really enjoyed our stay here. The transient sites are on the east side butting up against a large meadow with a woodsy area behind that. We had a large pull through grass site among lots of trees with a lot of birds, rabbits, and squirrels running around. The park is right beside busy Hwy. 12, however except for a few vehicles it wasn't a problem. The park for the most park is very quiet. It's a short walk/drive into a quaint little town with grocery shopping about 3/4 mile from camp. Madison is only about 23 miles away and there is lots to see within about 25 miles all directions. We would stay here again. I would have rated higher however I checked out the bathrooms and found them to be very dirty. I would not have used them at all. The park takes cash/checks only. No credit cards. Very laid back management. - flyturbo60

Not sure I could ever recommend this place. I called for a space as we were traveling through and specifically asked for a pull-through full hookup as I was towing and did not want to disconnect. I wanted to pull out early the next morning. I was told by the person answering the phone that that yes we have a site in our hanger section. I happened to be on their website so I looked a the map and said, wow, those are long pull-through sites and she said yes they were. So it was clear that I was expecting a pull through site.
Imagine my surprise when we arrive and I have a back in. I was not happy and had a conversation with a nice person who brought the papers to my site. Her and the person I had spoken to previously had a conversation over the radio and I was basically called a liar.
We ended up staying but here is the deal. The hanger section is the furthest away from the "facilities" as it could possibly be. They have 1 or 2 porta potties, yes, porta potties that are close.
We drove over to the "beach" and pool. You meander through so many "permanent" trailers stacked on top of each other. I am unsure I could have driven my 38' motorhome through all the cars, campers, golf carts, tents. We didn't even get out of the car when we got to the beach as their was no where to park.
This place is a fire bomb waiting to happen. Once camper/trailer or campfire problem and it will be a nightmare. How they can stuff that many in one area with one road in or out and no way to move between is beyond me. Any fire marshal would shut them down. - WYDan

90 to 95 percent were seasonal permanent sites. Staff was friendly but everyone else was drunk. We had a 3 day min.stay but left after the 2nd night of listening to noisy golf carts and cussing drunks till 3 or 4 in the morning.The pool was nice but at 9 in the morning you go there and every lounge chair (about 40 or so) had beach towels on them even though there were only 2 people in the pool so you have to sit on the concrete. The lake looked nice but smelled awful due to all the algae and I mean a lot of it washing up on shore. My daughter came back to the camper with her suit all green.We were told that the owner was across the road from us so we know they heard all the noise at night but did nothing because the drunken rednecks were regulars and that's fine there are plenty of other campgrounds to go to. Very few rental sites tightly squeezed in near the back of the pool and noisy bar so kids won't get much sleep. If you just want to hang out and get drunk this is the place!! - Roy Abramat

Park had lots of places for children to play, in and out of the water, but for 'retired' adults traveling through, I would not recommend it. Long pull through sites were not very level gravel. Office was located almost a mile from the entrance, on winding roads through lots of permanent campers, which was what the camp consisted of mostly. Only two showers, located 1/2 mile walk from our camp site; Outside porta pots were our closest provided toilets. - wheelen jv

Stayed in the Quartzite Campground for the Fourth of July holiday. This part of the campground is an old golf course, as such, not much flat anywhere. You will need boards to level here and depending on the site, a lot of boards. Sites are large and spacious. There is drinking allowed here and at the lake, so campers can get rowdy. Campfire would is a distant away to purchase and easier to drive to get. Bathrooms are great, showers are separate rooms on the outside that are large and very nice. Lots of hiking and a nice hike to the lake. Campground has a separate entrance/exit once you are set-up, so even though there was a line up to get into the state park, we skipped and entered straight into the campground. Ranger walks the entire campground before night fall (yes, he actually walks the entire thing and does stop at campsites). For a holiday weekend, it was busy and noisy, but far less than a commercial campground and there was a lot of groups/families/etc there that made it a little more so because of the holiday. We booked the last site available and booked in December. - bloomis

It's a state park so facilities (clean bathrooms/showers, etc.,) need to be taken into consideration. We stayed in the Northern Lights campground and had a spacious site with electricity that we booked 11 months in advance as we were here over the bust Fourth of July weekend. So much to offer at this park: swimming, fishing, hiking, paddle boarding, boating. No reason to be bored here. - EllenT

We stayed in the Quartzite campground, mostly because we read that it was more accessible for big rigs. The drive in was a little unnerving--lots of trees and very few signs to reassure you that are went the right way. But, we did and pulled in to the parking area for camper registration. It was 2pm on a Sunday (Father's Day) and while we expected the park to be busy we thought most people would be leaving, not arriving. It was packed and the line in the building to check in wound around the small space. Even so, the check-in process was fairly quick and painless.
To get to Quartzite campground you actually leave the park briefly, but even with a big rig is wasn't bad. Our site, #99, was a bit of a challenge. Most of the sites have gravel that has been overgrown with grass. Ours had a slope on either side of the narrow pad, so getting as close to centered was important. We did the best we could, but had difficulty leveling and ended up tilted downhill on the door side. We have an additional step we use and even with that we had a large step down since the entire site slanted down from the pad. Many of the sites have this same problem, but there are some a little flatter. Some others slant up or down along the pad, which would make leveling difficult as well.
The campground is very open, but you aren't right next to people and some trees are scattered around. The 50 amp hookup worked without any issues. There are a couple composting toilets, as well as a main bath house. The showers were OK for a state park, but we didn't use them. There are water fountains and faucets in a few places, but you'll need a container to use them; there is no water at the sites. They say they are completely full every weekend, so plan in advance or arrive very early on Friday morning.
We had no AT&T signal, but our Verizon had 2 bars and LTE without our booster. I will note that even in Baraboo there was little to no AT&T signal. - Uno Mas

Lets start out with the sites. They are large for the most part. Though with that none of the sites we looked at had gravel pads and were all grass. The site we stayed on at one point must have had a gravel pad but has been overgrown at this point. Also, a lot of the sites are seasonal so you should expect that. Still this is one of the quietest places I have stayed at in all of my stays.
They do promote a green campground so don't expect a lot of things you might see at other campgrounds. They have a catch an release fishing pond but no swimming area. They have converted an old barn into a game room. The games were limited and some are free and others you have to pay for. As part of the green campground they also do not offer anything in the bathroom to dry your hands, no air dryer or paper towels. Not sure if this is part of the green idea but the fire pit was just some loose rocks in a circle with a mud ring around it. It worked, but you couldn't get very close to roast the mallows without stepping into mud.
It is also very close to Devils Lake which does fill up and this would be a close alternative. They offer wifi but only near the campstore. The staff was friendly and the store was stocked with the things we wanted which was a couple sodas. We didn't have any issues with the power, water, or sewer. Though if you don't get a sewer site, the dump station is in a grassy area almost hidden. Overall it was just what we wanted for the weekend and that was some quiet family time and still got to enjoy a nice hike at Devils Lake. - Schultefam

No reservation, but was given a very lovely shaded site (back in). Staff was ultra friendly and accommodating. Didn't use any facilities. Plenty of room to walk the dog. Overall very well kept. Used just for an overnighter. Has a fishing pond that was actually being used by some guests, and a game room and a nice camp store. About 30 minutes from House on the Rock, and Taliesin. Would stay here again. - villager04

The guy at the house/office brings you back to the area and lets you see and know what you are getting before you pay. He told us a lot of the area where the nightly campers would have been parked was flooded so he suggested the area in the trees. NO ELECTRIC at any nightly site. All electric and hook ups are for seasonal sites and from the looks most of them are there every year and some may even live there year round. From what we did see they seem very nice. After a few hours in the spot we got tired of the mosquitoes and moved over on the other side of the area where there was more left over dried up mud from from the flood and this also allowed us to use the satellite dish for TV as it was a nice clear shot for dish network. Air TV was weak on rabbit ears, sprint air card was roam only and slow. Area was nice and flat, good for wheelchair use, but the restroom was not good to roll in the door. Showers appeared to be pay type showers, but we did not use them. Because of the distance from the seasonal sites we did run the Honda all night for electric. We were also the only ones down there so it was no problem for anyone. This could be a nice place again if the grass was to grow back and updates were made to the shower bath house. Number of sites available is unknown. Fortunately, because we have a ramp, we use that as a table so we didn't need to move a table to the new spot. There is a swimming pond that some kids were swimming in. There does not appear to be any group fire anymore, but they do still do sing alongs sometime, but we did not join in as we were tired and took it easy. We camped here in a van. Would camp here again if they can get the grass to grow back. - wmah

Kind of pricey at regular rate for an overnight considering they have no sewer hookups. We were there on a late season weeknight so very quiet. Person checking us in had no personality. Looks like mostly seasonal campers here. Lots of cigarette butts on the ground and trash in our fire pit. Paved interior roads but narrow with low hanging branches. - jprisbe

We did not enjoy this campground. The kids amenities are nice, but you have to buy a wristband for everything except the water. A day camp bus filled with unsupervised kids running around was there all day Saturday. The park was filled with unsupervised kids and drunk rowdy parents. The park manager residence had about 10 drunk people swearing and partying all day staring at you as you walked by. The campsites are packed in like sardines. Overall terrible experience. If you like drunk people, unsupervised children and being nickel and dimed for everything this is the place for you! - Camping2

This was our 1st stay here & it's our #2 favorite campground so far. This will probably quickly become our #1 as our favorite is over a 3 hour drive one way. We paid $165.00 incl. tax for a 3 night holiday weekend in a 26' travel trailer. 2 adults & 2 kids ages 16 & 7. We were first put on site P6 Friday night however. There was sand everywhere that caused stabilizing problems & we barely fit on the site. When I called earlier in the summer I was told it was the last site available for our weekend. I agreed to take it because we wanted to try this place out that badly. There were many pop-ups & tents so I don't think that area is meant to be for travel trailers. There was a nice playground right in the middle of the sites & a porta-potty was nearby too. We were up against a fence in the back, had to park the truck sideways in front, & couldn't use our fire ring because it was maybe 1 or 2 feet from our travel trailer. The site was very small (length & width). It gets amazing though - I wish I could write employee names here because we had an excellent experience switching sites. When I had seen an empty site I had asked an employee if there was a cancel & if we could move sites. She called the renter of that site, found out they had to cancel, & viola we got a new site! A++ We moved to site Y18 right behind the bath house, pavilion, & playground. We will book this site every time that we stay! The bathhouse that we were next to had 6-8 separate rooms that each included a locked door, toilet, sink, & (paid) shower. It felt like I was in my own bathroom at home. Very clean & spacious. There are so many fun things to do here! Over 50+ amenities - We loved the jumping pillow, the giant shopping cart, the treated lake w/ pretty blue water & inflatables, wagon rides, water wars, dunk tank, make your own donuts, & so much more. The entire family cannot wait until summer 2016! - Candi and Michael WI

We stayed here late in the season. When we entered the park it certainly looks very nice. They have a nice check in area / camp store / food. The person that greeted us was nice and friendly. Our site was not all that deep but it was very wide. Our 26ft trailer fit fine and we pulled our TV next to it after unhooking. One thing that really got me a little frustrated is you have to pay extra for kids to use the jumping pillow. Though this is not monitored as while my son was jumping on the pillow dozens of kids jumped on the pillow without paying. Paying for the wrist band got him access to the jumping and the mini golf. The mini golf was ok but looks like it had been abused all summer maybe multiple summers. They also have a basketball hoop and a place for skateboarding. Some other things they have are giant connect four, giant checkers, giant chess, and a playground. They also offer cabins so you could meet up with other family at this campground that don't have RV's. The rest rooms and showers were fine. The shower we used only had and on off switch. That meant it starts off cold and then gets hot. You have no control of the temperature. This was a challenge with our son as it got to hot for him. Overall I enjoyed the stay and wish we had more time at the campground. - Schultefam

One of the worst campgrounds I've been to. We chose Baraboo Hills because the website makes it look amazing. Ton of amenities that include pool, swim pond, park, jumping pillow, etc. However, upon our arrival the first thing we noticed was everything is very old and dingy. Then moving on to our site I was shocked at the condition of it. It was mostly gravel with the exception of a small grass area that was full of weeds. The kicker came when we found out you had to purchase 25.00 wristbands in order to use the jumping pillow and a few other amenities. We checked out the swim pond and it was a funny color blue so we never allowed our kids to go in it. The pool area looked clean but needed updating as far as the chairs went. We spent very little time of our 4 day stay in the campground. Decided to keep our days filled in the Dells. I understand why there are no refunds after paying full amount to reserve site, we would have left immediately if we hadn't already paid over 200.00. Will never visit this campground again. - CindyR123

Unless you have kids go somewhere else. This is truly a park oriented to and for kids.
If you have a larger RV, they have lot's of low hanging trees, but they will trim the limbs. - JAD52

RV Park ¼ mile from casino and 5 miles outside the Wisc Dells. Quiet. Paved roads with wide level gravel sites with grass between. New trees so not tall yet. Long back in and pull thru sites. No wifi at sites. Manicured landscaping. Check in at Hotel registration. Parking lot and registration area big enough for RVs to maneuver. Good for travelers and big rigs. Nice kids playground. Nice Laundry area. Staff friendly and helpful. Lower cost during the week. Will stay there again. - Pepper Dan

Very well maintained full hookup sites with neatly cut grass and landscaped grounds. Convenient to casino but overlooks lots of open space, very green. Handy laundry and restrooms were new. Allowed to use hotel pool area with hot tub. Tribal tax adds $5 to bill plus state and local taxes, $97 for 2 nights. Casino buffet got low marks so we drove into Baraboo diner for dinner. Major shopping area 4 miles. - Todd Fogelberg

It's an open park with few amenities. Sat worked well as no shade trees near. No cable and Wi-Fi was a joke. Check in is at the casino and staff seemed just bothered by it. Didn't go back in the casino (we don't smoke and don't care about gambling). Over all it was a place to set up for a couple nights. - TPDBOB8687

Very nice campstore, Water/Electric sites are shady and larger than FHU's. Very noisy and crowded on weekends. 30 second push button showers. Good place for kids. Stay Saturday thru Wednesday and they would not allow PPA discount for Sun, Mon, Tues....not sure why but was told had to be staying Sunday-Thurs to use it??????? - nlee04

Staff was very friendly and very helpful. Sites are vary narrow but level. On the weekend most sites were full and tents for an extra charge (I think) could be placed on your site. We had a premium site with 50AMPS and full hook-ups. To me a premium site should be paved or cement pad not a gravel bed. - Jim W1

We were first assigned to a site which was way off level, but, upon request, they quickly relocated us to a much better site. The roads are bit tight but for most RVs this will not be an issue. Our site was a pull through, however, because of the tight roads, it was more convenient to back in. The wifi was good. The utility hook-ups were convenient. - Gator67

Sites are poorly maintained, small amount of rock with clay base. Sites are rough and slant in all directions ... ideal place for families as there is a lot to do. Just stayed one night, will not return! - bobbodean

Check in girl was friendly. The first site was very uneven and we were given another which was better. We had a problem with our awning and a young man from the camp came with a ladder and helped us. Earlier in the week it was quiet but later it was packed with lots of families with small kids. The pool is large with plenty of lounge chairs. There is a wading pool for little ones. There is mini golf and a lot of walking trails. There is a game room, snack shop with hand dipped ice cream, and movies. We are grandparents but sometimes we need to get away from kids so if we are staying that area again we will go early in the week and avoid weekends. This place is a good location as there are a lot of thing to do and see in this area. - dmpemt

We have a 38' class A & a Jeep wrangler, & there was extra space in our pull thru "premium site". The park had a nice pool, frisbee golf, lots of hiking trails, & numerous playgrounds. The park is very well kept & the staff was phenomenal! Road getting to park was narrow, but do-able. Wi-Fi was fabulous & we were not even close to the office. We stayed Mon.-Fri. & campground was quiet & peaceful. - DawnDarryl
