Turning into the campground, from the highway, we found some low hanging tree branches on one side of the road. The $50 per night is based on the average of the 3 week nights and 2 weekend nights we stayed there, not including the $7 per person occupancy fee and the $10 early check in fee. When we checked in, we were given site 187, a back-in, which we parked in the site and started getting connected, the electrical breakers started tripping, and the surge protector showed low voltage on leg 2. They sent a maintenance man out, but he couldn't figure it out, so the manager came out, and after a couple of hours, they finally moved us to another site, site 20, a pull thru. Once we got to site 20, we were able to get connected without any problem. I did find that the sewer connection was about a foot above the ground, instead of being at ground level. Satellite TV didn't work, due to the trees. Antenna TV worked well. The Wi-Fi wasn't very good, and we ended up using our hotspots most of the time. The employees were friendly and helpful and kept asking if we were doing all right in the new site. This is a gated park, and they give you a key card when you check in. During the weekend we were there, the park appeared to be full, with a lot of kids out wandering around and playing. They weren't a problem, just a FYI, in case you want to avoid kids. - Bbtj

Went with my nephew and niece. Very well run and so many things to do.
Close to the airport and amenities and you forget that you are in a big city the moment you go inside. The kids loved this place and we plan to visit again soon. - StanRup

Park itself was quiet but with train whistles 3x a night and being in the flight path of landing/take offs for the airport made it a bit noisy. Clean park. - Smileys

A gem of a county park. Very basic, but the showers and restrooms were always clean. Spacious sites and lots of trees and greenery. lots of room for walking the dog and a grassy site for him to lounge around on. - fulltimerjan

It's a county run park but it's clean and has lots of playgrounds for kids and trails for hiking. It's next to neighborhood baseball fields and soccer fields. I was happy with it. - RVinFoo

We chose this as our first camping experience with our newly bought travel trailer and could not be happier. Super easy. Pull up, back in, hook up, relax & enjoy!! Happy Mother's Day weekend 2017!!! - Marklynn

As noted in other reviews this park is actually a big parking lot with site delineations marked on the pavement - it's all asphalt except for some perimeter grass borders you can walk your pooch in. On the other hand the sites are roomy with room for your tow vehicle, most are pull through sites, the staff is courteous, propane is available, and plenty of garbage bins available. Water was not turned on as the "season" hasn't started (as of 4/12/18). Didn't use laundry but looks like plenty of machines. While I probably wouldn't use this place during the summer (due pavement heat ) and not during their state fair time in August, it actually works well as a stopping spot in this area. - Mountain RV User

For the third or fourth time in the past 15 years, we were able to use this park for a final night of our summer trip because this county fairgrounds facility doesn't usually have anything big going on during the Labor Day Weekend. See my 9/13 review for my best description of the park. We were able to get one of the FHU, pull through sites on the east side of the park. As usual, we were able to use the the Wi-Fi for our minimal (e-mail and web surfing) needs. While there are many antenna channels, most sites are satellite friendly. If the park is full, this is a very tightly spaced park. I have always found the utility placement and, especially, the kind of sewer receptacle the site has to often be problematic. If possible, I would check out the assigned site for acceptability of utility placement. The bath and laundry facilities are in the main building that houses the office. They are modern and clean. The staff I dealt with were friendly and helpful. I do want to repeat for those who don't know: This park IS NOT in Milwaukee, it is in the suburb of West Allis. - Jerry S

Spent about 14 hours here (overnight), so just did the back-in, water/electric spot. This area is on the west side of the park in the "RV overflow" section and so that's what I'm describing here. As others have stated, it's just a parking lot. Electric and water hookups ran along the fence behind your RV. Water hookup was on the opposite side; be sure to bring a long or extra hose. Electric may also end up being on the opposite side depending on which site you are placed in. Based on the lines on the asphalt, the sites are very narrow (especially if you have slides on both sides). If the sites had been full, I have no idea where we would have parked our truck, or our extra vehicle/cycle trailer that we have. I think we ended up taking about 2-2.5 spaces. Also, if the sites had been full and people parked their tow/towed vehicle in front of their RVs, we likely would not have had enough space to get in/out successfully. Based on our angle, we did have to ask the popup across the way to move their truck so we could get out without hitting it. A lot of lights around, which was nice for safety, but very bright at night. The lot was a mess; garbage all over the ground. Staff was very pleasant on the phone; he warned about the interstate construction and gave some tips for the best route. Coming from south of the city, we took I-41 N to I-894 and came in from the west. Google Earth view doesn't show W Kearney St (frontage road) off the exit, but it's there. Exterior roads in were fine to navigate with 40' fifth wheel. Had multiple bars AT&T LTE. If they offered Wifi, I didn't bother trying to connect. The office building which also housed bathrooms, etc. looked fairly new and nice. Based on what was provided, I felt the price was a bit high...but it's a bigger city so not unexpected. - FrozenWaters

The staff were very friendly. They come around and pick up your trash everyday. The local Sheriff patrols the campground on a regular basis - not because there is trouble but just to check to make sure everyone is okay. The pool looked nice, although we did not use it. The laundry was very reasonable and clean. We would recommend staying there if you are in the area. - Boopy1062

We have stay here for many years and never had an issue, they enforce the quiet hour so if you are at your campfire keep your voice down. We have stayed so much that we tend to call the site(s) we stay on "our" site! They have kept the prices reasonable. They have a nice pool, restrooms, the roads are gravel and easy to take a walk. Their is a working farm next to them so you will hear a cow mooing every now and then! The owners are very nice and remember us year after year! - tammiann61

Small site. Just Enough room got a pop up and screen tent which gave us 3 feet from fire pit. Rotting picnic table. Quiet time not monitored even when a complaint made to rude management. Don't waste your time calling. NOT WORTH THE TIME!!!! - KD from St Francis

This park has the highest cost for what you get as any I have ever stayed at. There is no sewer or water. Electric site was 42$ plus a 10$ vehicle fee. Staff was OK and park is OK but way over priced. - bwl

We had to pay an additional $30 for a Wisconsin park entry pass. We stayed in the Sunrise Campground on the east side of the park, in the 200 loop. We were impressed by the size, spacing, and privacy of the sites here, which is the main driver for our high (8) rating. Most sites have a thick stand of trees and shrubs between them for nearly complete privacy, yet have plenty of grassy area left over for camping. There were a couple areas along the road where scraping against low-hanging branches was unavoidable. We also had to back up our 37' motorhome all the way to the wood blocks at the end of our site in order to fit our car in front. We did spot a few sites that should support longer RVs. In almost all cases the camping area was behind the site rather than next to it---picture a lollipop where the stick is where you park your RV. Usually we don't prefer this arrangement, but it worked out well for us here. Our site #223 was close enough to one of the water spigots that we were able to refill our fresh tank halfway through our stay using three hoses (75'). The spigots inside the campground aren't threaded so a water bandit or other adapter is needed. The campground host (Randy) was very friendly and helpful. The showers were pretty old, run-down, full of bugs, and the water was lukewarm at best. After our first shower we decided to just take navy showers inside the RV for the rest of our stay. There are miles of trails in the park, though we ended up turning around early due to mosquitos during our attempt at walking the trail. AT&T and Verizon both worked well. We would stay here again. - LifeRebooted

Bong has two campgrounds: Sunrise, which is relatively near the entrance on 142, and Sunset, which is all the way across the park on the western end. Only Sunrise has electric sites. We camped in Sunrise campground in site #224 two different weekends in May 2015.
The sites all have gravel pads upon which you must park. Each site also has a fire ring with a very nice grill grate and a picnic table. The sites have some small trees and shrubs between then but mostly Sunrise is open, grassy sites other than a small strip in sites 145-150. There is not much privacy when you are on your site. We had friends on adjacent sites 222 and 223. 223 has the least amount of privacy of the three. All 3 are maybe a three minute walk to the bathrooms with flush toilets and showers. The ladies restroom had a lot of vandalism in the stalls that the park had clearly tried to cover/remove several times. The restroom floors are terrazzo and were wet and slick both weekends we were there. Shower pressure was OK but not overwhelming. The water is warm but temperature is not adjustable.
We had to deal with rangers because my MIL has difficulty walking and uses a golf cart. We called in advance of going to the park and were told the cart was OK. Once we arrived, one ranger woke up my inlaws to tell them not to use it and then later told us his boss had said to wait for us to use it and issue $300 ticket. No where in its campground rules does it say golf carts are not allowed but don't bring one even if you are disabled. - We_love_truck_camping

The site was not good. We expected a better looking environment and updated equipment for how much we paid plus the place looked all booked up, meaning they are making good money here. They do not put any of the money back into the campground. It is a dump. We got a 30 amp premium site $45. Nothing premium about it, not even full hookup. No concrete slab. Weeds were everywhere. Bugs were everywhere. One couple left because the tiny stinging bees were so bad.
We did like walking by the animals. The animals looked good except the duck area and peacock area was very dirty and poorly kept. The fun zone is an additional $20/weekend per child. A can of pop was $1.35. We got two cookie ice creams and a generic bumper sticker for $10! The playgrounds weren't playgrounds, it was an old swing set, an old merry go round, etc., in the middle of a weed/mud filled area. The playgrounds were untouchable due to dirt and many had broken pieces and splinters.
The lake/beach was a swamp. The beach area is very tiny with dirty mud type sand. There are weeds everywhere. The pool is very small and cloudy. I cannot believe the price at this place. I really wanted to like this place. - Yellow Submarine

This was our 3rd and last visit to this park. The staff is very rude and less then helpful, the camp host was even worse, very mean vulgar man. We requested a site we have stayed on twice before only to have them move us to the no motorcycles allowed part of the park, we told them we had a motorcycle and asked for the site we requested, they told us they were saving it for a group of people who were camping together and wanted adjoining sites who had yet to arrive. We were instead told to park it by security and walk the 1/2 mile down a very steep hill and back up a very steep hill to our site. Being handicapped I cannot walk this distance yet they refused to put us on a site where motorcycles were allowed and if we didn't want to do that then we could leave. They do not have any handicap parking or accessibilities in many aspects of the park. There is a fee to everything you do here. Showers are 25¢ extra, facilities are dirty. $48 camping fee which is 50 amp and water, NO Sewer is for 2 adults ($12.50 per night per person extra) and 4 children under 18 ($2.50 per night per child) and 2 vehicles, the one your driving and what your towing is considered 2, $5 per day per vehicle, day guests are $5 per day. They offer a bouncy play area for kids, also $20 each person for the weekend with limited hours and open from 3-7 on Friday and from 11-7 on Saturday. The pool was so dirty we preferred to swim in pond for free. If staying in this area check out Bong Rec area instead and have an enjoyable experience vs staying here. Site was a steep uphill slope. - rob4mepls

We have been here a couple times. Our site was located near a cut through trail. Numerous times campers cut through our site, which was very annoying. Fences would certainly help as a guide. The campground could do a better job with enforcing quiet hours as well. The plumbing worked, the Wi-Fi was fine, the area seemed clean. - NorthernIllinoisPlumber
