Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $48.00
We were leaving the Chicago area and heading towards Madison to see an old friend. first visit to the area with the coach and I was looking for something close to her home and just stumbled on Stoughton. Almost passed on Viking Village because of another review that complained about the elec power. SO glad that I chose to stay there!! The grounds are immaculate ... it was formerly a Children's Home (orphanage) in the late 1880s and forward ... and has been family run for many years as a campground and recreation location. There is a lovely pool, picnic pavilion, miniature golf and expansive lawns for all sorts of games and large groups. There are a fair number of seasonal tenants who leave trailers or campers there, but every site is as neat as a pin. The water pressure is not the highest, but it was just fine and came with a pressure regulator. The power was steady and even on our 50amp pedestal. We had a site with full hookups and the sewer location was perfect. Trash is picked up at your site daily. All sites are gravel and most are level. I saw fire pit/rings and picnic tables at almost every site, as well. If this place had wifi it would have gotten perfect marks in every category!! The entertainment was watching and listening to the sandhill crane pairs that wander the park as though they own it! I can't say enough about the owner, who is friendly and generous and interested in the residents. I would return here in a heartbeat! It is easy to get to Madison (18 miles) and there is access to MANY lakes and parks for fishing or whatever. We camped at Viking Village Campground & Resort in a Motorhome.
Tips for other Campers:
Make a reservation, especially on a weekend, when almost every spot is filled!!
Beware - this campground has a problem with low voltage and owner knows about it. Owner doesn't understand this problem and advises that campers should conserve energy so low voltage doesn't occur. Also said it occurs when too many RV's come in - then limit the number! Was told if we were unhappy, we could leave. Damage can result from this condition. Also, sites were not very level. Very nice grounds though. But we will pass on this location in the future. We camped at Viking Village Campground & Resort in a Motorhome.
This is a great park that is convenient to Madison. Spaces are large and very easy to get into and out of. We were in site 15 which was level. We will stay here again. We camped at Viking Village Campground & Resort in a Motorhome.
We have camped several times and have always been pleased. Sites are somewhat level, always good water pressure (except when they are filling the pool). It's well maintained and if the pool was heated or even if it had a solar cover, I would give it a 10. We camped at Viking Village Campground & Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Large spaces, shady, grassy--quiet, pleasant staff--stayed one week. Close to Capital, Taliesin, Mt Horeb, New Glarus--and lots of historic sites. Stoughton a nice town. Wi-fi was marginal at site--depended on who was parked next to you. Rather pricey but would probably stay here again. We camped at Viking Village Campground & Resort in a Motorhome.
Way overpriced campground for what you get. The sites are old, narrow piles of gravel. Bugs attack every window and screen of your RV as soon as the sun goes down not to mention if you are out of your rig. There is no Wi-Fi at the sites, only in office. This park is run down with no evidence of maintenance staff during the three days of our stay. The only reason to stay here would be if you are visiting family in Stoughton which, we were.

Very quiet and peaceful old county orphanage grounds turned into RV park. However, there was no store or Wi-Fi or clubhouse to speak of. Only S'mores and firewood sold at the registration office. If you are entirely self-sufficient and don't need anything but peace and quiet, then this is a great, if somewhat high-priced, place to camp. The grounds are very well kept, and the spaces are nicely wide so you don't hear your neighbors. Plenty of level spaces. All but 3 have full hookups. (3 are electric/water only). Not very high water pressure, but adequate. Good fire holes, though we didn't get to try ours out because it was unusually windy. An especially nice miniature golf course with very nicely planted flowers that they really work on for a miniature golf tournament in the summer. I had thought there would be Wi-Fi. If there was, the nice but uninformed girl at the Reg desk didn't know how to tell campers to access it. My laptop read "no wireless network signals" and I usually can pick up very well. The staff are not intrusive at all. In fact, they were hardly there at all! (But we were late getting in, and there was a Norwegian festival in town this weekend.) Overall, a nice place to camp but a little pricy for lack of Wi-Fi and store. (I had to go all the way to Madison to get a potable water hose). We camped at Viking Village Campground & Resort in a Travel Trailer.

We were here for two nights. Most sites were empty except for the permanent sites. This is a nice campground, and we have been here several times in the past few years to visit relatives in the area. It is the most convenient full hookup campground to our relatives. At $44 per night during this apparent off season, this campground is over-priced.
