Where do I begin? Now, mind you that this place is PRICEY. The reservation is LOADED with extra fees: a $47/night campsite was almost $80 once all those fees were piled on. Outrageous. -- Called on our way there but their phones were out. It was scheduled maintenance, but they had done nothing to ensure that callers knew or had a way to connect. -- Told we couldn't check in early (and yes, they told us we should have called first! ha!) and we should go park at Target and wait (despite the park being almost entirely empty). -- Campsite was a mudpit. -- Sewer connection was uphill. -- Electrical connection kept shutting down (breaker blowing at the pedestal) despite a low draw from us. -- Wifi was so slow you couldn't even check email. -- Campground staffers and delivery people violated quiet hours. We had large trucks and noisy golf carts rolling past our site at 7am. -- They said they would pick up trash at our site (I like this service!). They did not. -- After telling us emphatically that they would charge us a replacement fee if we lost our keycard, out keycard failed to open the gate when we left or entered the park. Pressing the "help" intercom next to the gate raised exactly zero response. Nothing caps your day than being stuck outside a park you paid too much for, wandering around trying to find someone so you don't have to park your truck out on the road and walk to your campsite. I'm told this is a great and "secure" park if you have small kids. I did not see anything that contradicted that. I just wish all the other details had been as well attended. Very tight sites where your "view" is your neighbors sewer pipe. Lovely. Avoid. - Thiel

A 3-star resort with great facilities for kids. The pluses: close to Racine and Milwaukee. Negatives: Check-in at 4PM, so ended up paying a $10 early reg fee!; no cable; roads in poor shape; most sites are dirt and some gravel when dry, mud and some gravel when wet. Will look for something else for my next visit. - AvalonDF41

Average park where everything is an extra fee. Fee per person per day, fee for online reservations, resort fee, early check in fee. Nice pools but I have been to many park with pools just as nice where you weren't charged all the extra fees. If you want a water-park atmosphere go to Wis Dells or Barton Lake in IN, much nicer. If you don't have kids, you don't want this park. - XPX

There is a lot to like here: Close to Milwaukee, but not in the middle of everything. Super quiet even though it was full HUGE sites with smooth and level gravel pads Easy to navigate paved roads We hoped to be able to get to the lake from the CG but could not find a path. We found another nearby park with lake access. The lighthouse at Wind Point is a cool sight to see too. - Mudpuppy78

Very well kept park! Quiet at night. Nice surroundings. No sewer. Would have been $28 but we wanted a site reserved,so additional $12. - sp123

Nice park but no sewers. Sites are all back-in but are fairly level and large with lots of shade. It is near Lake Michigan but you cannot see it from the campground. Reservations must be made either on-line or via phone and there is a $12 registration fee. We did not see any hosts or attendants but did see maintenance workers. - rockfarmer

We stayed here for two nights when in Milwaukee for the Harley Davidson museum. Great location for accessing downtown Milwaukee museums, sports venues, etc. It's more of a large parking lot than a campground, that most people use for 1-2 day stopovers. We had a large FHU site right next to the office and laundry room, which was clean and well-kept. Good wifi signal and cell reception. Close to a highway, but the noise was not an issue for us. Staff were all friendly and helpful. We would return if in the area again. - Wayne60

This park worked very well for us. Easy check -in, friendly staff. It's basically a big paved parking lot with hookups. Roomy sites. It's well lighted, you might want to keep your blackout shades closed at night. Security is good, we felt very safe here. Just make sure you pull into your site in the correct direction so the utilities are on the correct side. - wntrtxn

Once again we were able to get in here for the final night of our summer trip. We had a tight FHU site that was tight, but manageable. The sewer hookups can be a problem because some are angled. The bathroom and laundry facilities are modern and clean. There are lots of OTA channels and most sites are satellite TV friendly. - Jerry S

We had a full hookup site but the campground only has 30 amp so we will probably not stay there in the heat of summer - nice pool and play ground by the office - seemed that almost all of the full hookup sites were taken by snow birds spending there summer in the north - they was quite a parade of states on the license plates. - rr2254545

Our site was very short, not a full hook up that we needed and had a sidewise slope taking 3 inches to level. Very noise the weekend were were there with a zillion Harleys (HarleyFest 2018). - rncordy

The staff is very friendly and helpful. Everything is very clean and well maintained. The pool looks nice although I didn't use it this time. This is a great campground for relaxing. They also have a a few animals that are fun to pet and feed. They can also fill your propane tank which saved us a trip into town. - cathycamping

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
