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. We camped at West Bay Camping Resort in a Travel Trailer.
Tips for other Campers:
Less than 10 minutes to Rhinelander was has a Walmart Supercenter, Home Depot, Menards, and Trigg's grocery. Trigg's is an excellent grocery store. There is also a good size hospital in Rhinelander.
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. We camped at West Bay Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
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!

This park is NOT big-rig friendly. The roads are very narrow with switchbacks. The sites are very, very tight. Cannot fit a 38' fiver in any available site, however there is another campground 25 miles away. If you camp in a pop-up or anything smaller than 30 foot, you should be fine. We camped at West Bay Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here with several other campers coming in from all around the U.S. We needed sites together as well as two rental campers. West Bay was very helpful and gave recommendations for rental camper places, and grouped us all together. The wifi is only accessible from close proximity to the main office. Campground is heavily wooded, almost too wooded as it was a little difficult navigating big rigs thru the campground. Behind out campsite was a house with a rooster with a messed up alarm clock. Started crowing at 4:00am. Also, just across the road from the campground was a dog kennel. Not too much barking at night, but during the day, you know when it was feeding time. I would have given this campground a higher score, but when we arrived to check in, there was not a proper place to park our camper while registering. When we parked in the most obvious safe place to park, we were met by a very rude man shouting "YOU CAN'T PARK THAT THERE!" There were no signs directing to where we could park. Not a good impression. That guy would not have even made a good greater at Wal-Mart. First impressions are lasting impressions. Campground is relatively close to town / WM in case you forgot something. We camped at West Bay Camping Resort in a Travel Trailer.

This is a great park. We've stayed here several times and look forward to going back. The sites are nestled in the woods. We've seen a deer while sitting in our motorhome. There are many things to do at the campground and many things to do in the area. We camped at West Bay Camping Resort in a Motorhome.
