20 Parks near Rhinelander, Wisconsin
Jul 2015 - $47.00
We stayed here four nights when attending the Rhinelander School of the Arts. We didn't really like the campground, but it was close to Rhinelander and convenient for the workshops. The host was friendly.
There are two shower houses. The remote shower house was dirty and all of the knobs on the showers had been removed. The only shower in the campground that worked was in the basement of the main office. Fortunately, we had full hookups and used our own shower instead.
The roads are tight, dusty, and rough. Our site was challenging to get into with a 28 foot trailer and was very uneven. We had to use nearly three boxes of leveling blocks to get the trailer level side to side. The trees are very dense which makes parking challenging, but then there is lots of nice shade which was a fair trade-off.
We would not normally stay at a campground like this one, but it was the best option in the area to attend the workshops. We may look around more before next year's workshops. - User3641

This park was no problem for our 37' fifth wheel and Dodge 3500 DRW tow vehicle. Yes, the roads are very narrow, but it's possible if you take your time and are careful. Many of the sites will accommodate a 40' or larger motorhome. I suppose "friendly" is a bit of a stretch, but you can make it work. Wonderful wooded sites give a feel of seclusion and separation from your neighbor. Pool is great. There is lake access, but no pier or anything to ease swimming. Bath house was clean, but deteriorated. Water pressure was extremely low. Manager and staff was very friendly. - Phil Hyde

We drove into this campground early in the season to check it out. We live about 20 miles away and were looking for a place to stay for a weekend, some place new. We have a 31 foot camper and there was only about 2 sites that would have accommodated us. Even if we would have been able to get into the sites (there isn't much room for trying to back in to the sites) there would have been no room for any other activities as our camper with our slides would have taken up the entire site. We stopped to check out the playground for our young children, which was okay, nothing spectacular. We then stopped at the bathrooms and went in to see how clean they were. This often tells a lot about how a campground is kept up. It was filthy dirty and disgusting. On our way out of the bathroom a women, whom we assumed was a staff member, drove up in an old van and asked if we were camping here. We replied, "No, just checking it out" She replied with a very snotty, "This isn't a public restroom, get out!" We then told her we didn't use the restroom and she sped off shaking her head. Wow! We would not return here even if we could fit our camper. She was very rude so we will take our business elsewhere. I'd advise that you do the same! - mihalko05

Nice quiet campground. Friendly staff. The upper campground is in a traditional wooded setting. The lower campground sites are close together but convenient if you have a boat. A water filter is recommended because of the high iron content in the water. There is a quiet road between the lower campground and the lake front. Very nice lake. Nice boat dock. Small beach. Good dock fishing. There is a dump station. Some seasonal campers. There is a bar on-site. Great food in the area. We stayed in the lower campground with our 35' rig and had plenty of room. We would stay here again. - Rudedude

We arrived on October 5th knowing that the campground would turn off the water two days later. This is common during this time of the year. There are upper and lower areas in the campground. We were in the lower area which is across the street from the lake. Since the hookups were on the opposite side, we had to use an extension cord for the electric hookup. There are no pull-through sites in the lower area; however, we did not have any problems backing in our big rig. The campground was not crowded and very quiet during this time of the year. Visit their website; it provides photos and detailed information about the campsites. We would camp here again. - tumbleweeds

.We called this park after showing up at another nearby park at which we had reservations and discovering that they were under a county boil order for contaminated water. We were therefore delighted when the nice lady we got on the phone at Northforest told us to come on in!
They had a very nice playground for kids, shuffleboard, tennis courts, mini golf, and a nice beach. We were in a pleasant area with forest and a lake - the campground was nice and quiet. - Starxd

The campground is far off the beaten track. The road to it is gravel and almost a mile from the "main" road.
There were a lot of seasonal campers there. Great CG for families; playground, swimming, miniature golf, and a sort of hayride.
Sites are mostly grass. The sites they use for transients are mostly on the ends.
Wi-fi was okay. Cell reception was acceptable. Satellite depends on your site due to trees.
My main issue with the CG was the electric. There was a single box for 2 sites, both 30 amp. My neighbor for the one night I was there was in a Class A. The circuit breaker for the box (a couple of sites away) kept blowing. The manager showed us where it was and I reset it a couple of times, the breaker was Hot to the touch. Not a very good set-up. There were no sewer hook-ups in the transient area and they charge $7 to dump. - jnateg

Easy drive from WI 17 & US 8 via good county roads; last half mile is well graded gravel road. Campground was very quiet on week nights. Camped in a 35 foot 5th wheel on pull through site R, which is sand/grass with no shade. Site is wide & level with plenty of room for truck. Roads are gravel. Good over the air TV; good WiFi reception. Bath & laundry houses are clean. No pool. Volley, basket, & baseball courts & fields, miniature golf course. Playground. Small beach & boat launch on Pickerel Lake adjacent to campground. Camp store is minimal & was often closed. Park is about 11 miles from Tomahawk. - Scottsdale RVers

This is our 3rd year at Weaver's Resort. Wonderful place to stay right on Pelican Lake with docks, boat ramp, playground, woods, etc. Staff is very friendly & campground is very clean. The owners are very accommodating & will bend over backwards to help you. We will definitely be back again next year! - CJKC

Another great stay at this remote campground. We stayed 3 months and enjoyed every minute. Campers are free to keep boats and ATVs at their campsite at no extra charge. The owners are fantastic people that will do whatever is necessary to make your stay right. This is our summer campground. - nascaron

We camped at Christian's Campground in Pelican Lake, Wisconsin on a monthly basis with a very reasonable rate. We found the campground to be very quiet. Mostly seasonal campers with some weekend campers. During the week we were basically alone in the campground. The sites are big enough that we were able to put our 38 foot fifth wheel in sideways, with a lot of space on both sides, so our door faced the woods. All sites have full hookups with 50 Amp service. There is a pavilion, playground, and sand volleyball court available. All campers are allowed to store boats, ATVs, etc, on their sites at no extra charge. Pelican Lake is within a mile drive and an ATV trail comes right to the campground. The campground has a few piers on the lake for your boat and fishing use. We will be back next year. - nascaron

No not big rig friendly, but the owners real friendly. Pretty shady little park on a pretty lake.
I was worried that the electrical wire was exposed; it was not in conduit. Was told they had 30 amp. Never did find it, just 110. To cover the electrical switch it had a plastic Folgers coffee can you just lift it up. If it wasn't so late when we arrived I'd have left.
Really pretty lake camp ground was updated with level sites. It's a pretty park. Their website says I should get the winter rate but they said no. - JustDon

Extremely rustic. Okay for tenting, but not set up for larger rigs. In addition to rate of nearly $30 they charged an additional $5 for using air conditioning. - tdwms

This park has rapidly deteriorated over the last few years. Long-term campers have full sized refrigerators and even living room furniture outside making the entire place look trashy. The pit toilets weren't clean, were practically overflowing, and the stench was terrible. The beach has eroded and is becoming overgrown with weeds. The RV sites have become more and more unlevel. The only dump station is in an awkward place in the park where bigger rigs can't fit. Shore power from the pedestal is weak and erratic. A surge blew out one of my outlets and the power was so weak I couldn't run my AC. When I brought these issues to the owner's attention he immediately became very defensive and told me not to come back. Management is terrible! We won't be back to this park! - Cap'n G

This park is really a mixed bag. The good are great views of Lake Alice from numerous sites and a nice swimming beach. There are boat docks and the fishing in excellent. Many mature trees also provide great shade. The bad is that there are no sites with sewer and the dump station is in a awkward place in the middle of the permanent campers sites. The pads are also extremely un-level (so bring extra boards or leveling blocks). The toilets are strictly "outhouse" style, dumping directly into the holding tank (so, it stinks). However, overall I do like this park since it offers access to beautiful Lake Alice. I'll stay here in the future. - Cap'n G

We stayed in a campsite right along the water and rented a very nice pontoon boat. People were very friendly and helpful. Check in is at the bar and there's a new shower house with 3 mens and 3 womens showers with on demand hot water heaters--which worked great. Showers are coin operated and clean. My kids loved the beach and spent a lot of time fishing from the boat docks. I've already reserved a campsite for next year. - riverrafter

This was our first trip in our first motorhome. It was the best experience. The hosts were very friendly and helpful (as were the other guests). Nice semi-private areas to park with lots of trees, I did not feel like I was at a campground, but in a private area. The area was clean, however the roads are gravel, we manuvered our almost 40' trailer around just fine. Already made reservations for next year. - cathycamping

This was a very sad little campground, about three miles outside of Three Lakes. New owners since April 2010. Mostly permanents with about six sites available to nightly. A lot of older trailers as permanents. The park is just across the road from a pretty little lake and they have an access for residents. Our site was a pad that was just exactly as wide and long as our rig (33') with a steep incline at the front making it impossible to pull thru, although it was advertised as a pull thru. No sewer hook ups and the dump site, once we drove all thru the park in order to come in on the proper side, was actually lower than our rig and so we had to jack up the fiver in order to dump. Even that was not very successful. No laundry facilities at the campground and the public restrooms looked very questionable. We would not return to this campground. - shovelguy
