We stayed here one weekday night the first full week of July. Our site was a level, gravel, FHU pull-through with a 802.11 connection that worked fine for us. There is no cable and only the 5 network over the air TV stations. Our site was satellite TV friendly. More than half the 200+ sites appear to be taken by seasonal or long term customers. Most of those are in the treed section and many would be considered messy and tacky by many of the reviewers on this site. Most of the transient sites are in the open and close to the lodge and pool. There are also some tent sites and cabins. There is a laundry/bathhouse building near the pool that services the transient area. I was bit surprised at how basic this facility was - it was very stark on poorly lit with cement floors and cinderblock walls. The showers were $1 for 6 minutes. There is a similar building in the seasonal area. The pool is decent size and there is a playground for the kids plus a better than average basketball hoop and court. You can easily access the river behind the lodge (they rent some small watercraft). but the river walk was impossible to use because of bugs even in the middle of the day. The lodge has a nice bar and grille and, in contrast to what an earlier reviewer said, what appears to be a large meeting room. This place must be an absolute zoo on summer weekends. I saw no sign of recycling. The park is OK but I doubt that I would return and come this far off the beaten path at this price. We camped at Wisconsin Riverside Resort in a Motorhome.
We stayed for three nights. The resort has a pool, playground and a nice restaurant/bar which served good food (we had drinks one night and pizza the next). It was early summer so not crowded but the sites were very close and had no trees in our section, so no shade. The ground was level and grassy so it was easy to park. Each site had a fire pit and picnic table on a cement slab with full hook-ups. We camped at Wisconsin Riverside Resort in a Motorhome.
Tips for other Campers:
The park is on the outskirts of village of Spring Green on Wisconsin River. Located close to 'House on the Rock' and Taliesin (former home of Frank Lloyd Wright). Many artists in the area.

Camped here in group, so group rate. Sandy sites which tracked into RV. Wifi was terrible and they didn't care. Nonexistent cellphone signal, unless you had U.S. Cellular. Not much to do in this area. No inside room that our group could use due to inclement weather. Would not recommend this park and will not stay here again. Regular rate is overpriced for what you get. We camped at Wisconsin Riverside Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a large multi-purpose facility right along the Wisconsin River. It has a nice Grille, so if you don't feel like cooking you can have a light meal and/or a drink overlooking the river, you can rent tubes & they will shuttle you up river so you can float back down, they have a fun pool that even has a cool "frog slide" for the kids, nice pull thru sites, etc. Again, with the rain in Wisconsin! So, we didn't do any of the fun stuff! However, they are only about a half hour away from The House on the Rock which is really worth the trip, rain or shine! We also drove out to Mazomanie to The Old Feed Mill for dinner, fantastic! We camped at Wisconsin Riverside Resort in a Motorhome.
We RV'd here on Memorial Day weekend. The resort's overnight full hook-up sites were full and the tents sites about half. There are seasonal sites, most look well cared for. Some appear to not have been opened up yet. The main building includes check in, a well stock store, and a full service restaurant & bar. The food & service was excellent. There are several pull-through sites all the rest are back in. The sites are deep and will fit the longest of units and allow for a vehicle in front. Not many trees but that allows for great satellite reception. There six waterside sites, they are not actually on the Wisconsin River but on shallow, muddy slew. We will camp her again.

The area for short term stays is very open and sites are spacious. The pool is large and other visitors made good use of it. We had a nice meal in the restaurant. We stayed for three nights. Though pricey, we would stay again if in the area We camped at Wisconsin Riverside Resort in a Motorhome.
Nice campground, but expensive. Also, they charge a dollar to take a 6 minute shower. Nice restaurant on the grounds. Nice pool. Not much shade on the campground, as the trees are new. Not much to do in the area, unless you are seeing the House on the Rock. We camped at Wisconsin Riverside Resort in a Travel Trailer.
We were here for Memorial Day weekend. Very nice campground located right on the Wisconsin River. We had a River front site which was really just a slough leading to the river, still nice though. Most of the campground is paved which keeps the dust down. They have a very nice lodge with a bar and small game room. The owners have put a lot of money into the campground and it shows. Nice newer heated pool with kiddie splash area. And newer shower/bathhouse up front. They also offer canoe/kayak/tube livery service. So no need to get back in your car once you're there. Very close to House On The Rock, and downtown Springreen is very nice. We would definitely go back again. We camped at Wisconsin Riverside Resort in a Travel Trailer.
Very expensive for one night of traveling through an area. Site was dirt and not terribly level. Ask management which sites get Wi-Fi before letting them assign one. They have a disclaimer that Wi-Fi will not reach all their sites. No bars, but Verizon 3G was working. No cable TV, just a few over the air channels. For that price I expected cable TV. Otherwise a nice park that caters to families wanting recreation on the Wisconsin River. We camped at Wisconsin Riverside Resort in a Motorhome.
This campground was very nice. The staff is great and very helpful. We did the River tubing and had a great time, however we were not sure where to get off and missed our stop. It took us almost 45 minutes to walk upstream dragging 5 tubes so be sure to pay close attention, because there is no markings telling you exactly where to get off. A nice flag or sign would have been great for us that have never done it before. The pool is nice, the campground is very clean, and the new building is great. Lots of little flea markets, antique shops and craft fairs are close by. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Wisconsin Riverside Resort in a Motorhome.

Access is great. Staff is very helpful. Interior roads are mostly asphalt. Pads are gravel with a cement pad for picnic table. All have fire rings. The pool is new. The office includes a big store, canoe rentals, and a restaurant and bar which are very nice, and new. Lots of shade trees and grass. Great places to walk the dogs. No cable, but sat reception is good. Good water pressure. Wi-Fi is very good. There are some seasonal sites, but they are neat. What a great place to stay.

This is a very nice campground. It is located on the banks of the Wisconsin River and is very near the town of Spring Green (a very nice town to visit). Our satellite dish would not work because of the trees and the camp does not have cable, a drawback. Wifi connection was good. Signal strength was good and speed was good. Speed commonly reached 54 mbps. However the wifi connection was not secure. With all the concern about information theft, parks should provide secure wifi connections. The excuse that "we've never had any problems" simply doesn't work. If there had been problems it is likely the park would not have known about them. Come on park owners, get into the information (theft) age. The employee at the office when we checked in was very grumpy. Not sure why park owners put up with grouchy employees. They represent your park. We camped at Wisconsin Riverside Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Tight turns for big rigs with dinghy to get into pull-through sites. Not a lot of shade. Fee is too much for campground atmosphere with resort title. We were there 2 nights while biking Military Ridge Bike Trail (cinder based Rails-to-Trails) located in Dodgeville. Frank Lloyd Wright area. One time visit area. We camped at Wisconsin Riverside Resort in a Motorhome.
Nice campground, we stayed in pop up and had to pay for sewer hook up even though we dont have toilet ect,(all they have). Nice pool area kids loved, and we used the river for canoeing. Restrooms could use a little more attention with sandy soil and pool, river near by. I prefer to pay a few more dollars a night more than have to pay for showers whae change machine was out of order.
