25 Parks near Sauk City, Wisconsin

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

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

We were in site #171. It was an open area with only 3 other campers while we were there. We had originally booked site #210, but it wasn't a good site so we were able to switch. Most of the sites aren't very level so we had a bit of trouble getting it to level. However, we loved the large grassy area that our dog was able to rest in without laying in gravel or dirt. It is a beautiful park. My husband caught quite a few fish so he was happy. We left the Thursday before Memorial Day and I'm sure it will be full up for the weekend. We enjoyed the relatively few people in our section of the campground. We stayed in the Northern Lights loop. Bathrooms and private showers were spotlessly clean. We would stay again. - Southbar

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

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 were ignored when we arrived,. If it was not so late and far off the highway, we should have just left then. The young lady at the desk had no idea if our trailer would even fit in the spots and half of them she suggested were too short. The back-in spots are nice but very unlevel, and they do not have full hook up. - acadiandave

A great park for kids, but we don't have kids so that did not appeal to us. Stayed hooked up since just staying one night and didn't venture out much due to the heat and the kids running around. Barely enough room for our truck and 5er hooked up and a good line of sight for our satellite dish. We probably would not stay here again. - Bob & Jo

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

We stayed during Memorial Day weekend. After dropping $174, I was shocked to find out we needed to pay more for the kids to use the activities there. Half the staff is encountered seemed put out by waiting on me. The bathrooms were filthy. The sites are NOT spacious. You're right on top of each other. - Tetz

This is a very nice campground with many activities for families with kids. The gravel/dirt/grass sites are spacious and you don't feel squished in. Some of the tree branches need to be trimmed but it was basically maneuverable with our 37' motorhome. Our kids' families stayed in the cabins very close by. They were nice and luckily had a/c. It was very hot and humid. The amenities included a snack bar, a nice pool, a pond and games and go karts, playground, etc. They had a man come in on Sat. and gave a really cool talk about reptiles showing many different varieties. Very interesting. Staff was friendly and we all had a good time at nearby Circus World and at the campground. There is a pizza buffet nearby. They also have a nice dog park area very close to the campsites. We would definitely stay here again. - slj

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

We were here Labor Day weekend. We enjoyed our stay. The staff was very friendly and very helpful. Sites were spacious sunny and open. Pad was gravel and had a fire ring and picnic table. We plan on going back before the end of the season. - geezer1945

We stayed here in July of 2013 and my review back then describes the physical set up of the park along with the facilities and amenities. The negatives remain: check in at hotel, overpriced for a casino RV park, no cable TV, poor WIFI, bathroom floors flood when someone showers, etc. There are antenna channels from Madison and most sites are satellite friendly. Their website calls this a "luxury? park. In whose opinion? The sites and hook ups are the only positives. I still don't see any recycling. - Jerry S

Some of the sites are right angle to the road, making it difficult to back into without traveling on the grass. Fill with water at the restrooms-shower-dump area before setting up. A small park with some children's playgrounds. - stetwood

Big, grassy sites. Although located in the city, it was a quiet, pleasant park. Campground is clean; has pump-out service by bathrooms/shower house. - rnv

OK, so why a 9 rating, with dirty showers and bad bathrooms? I guess I just anticipated that as a county park open to the public the bathrooms would be less than desirable. Once you get by that, after all you are in your own rig, this is really a nice place. Lots of space between your neighbors, level spots, great camp hosts, right by Lake Mendota, greener than you can imagine, 4 bars of the faster Verizon 4g you can imagine. It really is a great place. We were here for 2 weeks and enjoyed every day here. Both the local police and the county rangers run regular patrols though the place. - rh2669

Great campground, a little noisy durine a weekend long family reunion but otherwise it was quiet during the week. Lots to do for kids and the pool was nice. Easy access to the Dells and local shopping. Only about a mile from the local Indian casino as well. - Campers4Life2016

We stayed here in a travel trailer. Our site had electric/water/sewer and free wifi. The site itself felt a little tight only because next to us one night was a really big rig. We are talking 200K+ motor home. I think its size just really made our site seem small. In all seriousness the site was fairly level. The kid park was large and had stuff for all ages including swings, playground equipment, volleyball court, and basketball court. In the park was a nice shelter if you were camping with a group and wanted to eat together. The staff was friendly and welcoming. Every time we stopped in the camp store they were welcoming. Check in was easy as walking in and letting them know who we were. They also have other things to do on site like giant chess, giant checkers, ladder ball, and a disc golf course. We played the disc golf course twice and it was pretty fun. They also have a game room in the camp store that has board games to play, carpet ball, a tv with a dvd player, and books to read. They have a couple nature trails on site. If you are into golf the campground is right next to a golf course. If you want to gamble you only have to go less than a mile to be at a casino. The bathrooms/showers were clean and the water was warm. I mentioned the camp store which has a fair amount of items in it. From camping gear to toys, to food items.
Our site also had nice tree coverage and was in the shade most of the day. Our neighbors on one side were very friendly and shared a fair amount of friendly advice. The campground was quiet all weekend as far as noise goes.
Overall it was a pleasant stay. - Schultefam

We camped here during the week and there was no more than 6-7 other campsites in use. Our site was level and surrounded by lots of foliage and tall trees. The washrooms were well maintained and very clean. The showers were a nice size with a small bench. Which was great to take small children into the shower with you. A nasty storm rolled through and the park staff checked on everyone and were very friendly. The pool is large with a diving board. Also has a kiddie pool about 18 inches deep for the little ones. The downside is you must pay an entry fee to use the pool. - SkinnyMinny

The State Park is great, but the campground needs some work. Most of the sites are small and not "Big Rig Friendly". The interior roads are paved and the sites are gravel. The park is right on the Military Ridge State Trail. - Paul M. Kitchen

This is a heavily used campground being close to Madison. We had some trouble to find a spot for our 32 foot 5th wheel and tow vehicle. The ranger had a funny policy of find your site and then go back and see if it had been reserved. Not far from the Blue Mounds cave which is just ok, but do go see the Mustard Museum in Mt Hoerb, and the Artisian Gallery there. A trip to the Norweigian place is neat too. This campgrounds is a good place for smaller RVs and tents. - stetwood
