15 RV Parks near Tomahawk, Wisconsin
Sep 2006 - $24.00
This was our first trip in our first motorhome. It was the best experience. The hosts were very friendly and helpful (as were the other guests). Nice semi-private areas to park with lots of trees, I did not feel like I was at a campground, but in a private area. The area was clean, however the roads are gravel, we manuvered our almost 40' trailer around just fine. Already made reservations for next year. - cathycamping

I stayed at this campground over the 4th of July, 2005. Oh man, this is one campground I will never visit again. The bathrooms were almost non existent. I stayed down in Mosquito Swamp and my family and I had to hike up a hill to go to the 2 stall bathroom and shower. Which my wife never did get a warm shower for her money. In fact it was difficult to get the quarters to work. The male side: well someone must have imbibed to much in the bar (on site) and made a mess of one of the 2 stalls and the walls. It was still there the next day. It finally was cleaned later that day. The pool is warm, but hazardous, it is falling apart. Bricks are missing and the chemicals are very strong. Maintenance has a lot to be desired in this campground. Looks like what was originally built has never been maintined or upgraded. Exterior safety lighting is limited to Christmas tree lights, however, the bar is nicely decorated. Maybe the owners should invest some of the money being spent there in upkeep/maintenance. It is lovely here but the deterioration takes away from the beauty of the location. If had not been for the seasonal campers and their assistance, like providing firewood and a good time this holiday weekend would have been a bust. As my family and I walked around you could tell the sites of the seasonals. We stopped and talked to several and asked who maintained their sites with flowers, etc. The response being they did. At least someone cares. The owner should be grateful for their help it helps detract from the shabbiness. The playground is nice but it had animal waste in the sandbox, my children had to watch when they played there. Unfortunately there is not much good to say about this campground. Understanding this is a family campground and that quiet time is 11 pm, the owner did not need to come to us prior to that time and tell us we were being too loud. We had just all returned from the campground firework display and were dealing with children that were excited. Voices may have been at a higher pitch. For that we aplogize to any fellow camper we disturbed, but when he, the owner, approached us it was prior to quiet time and he used little tact. The owner has some issues to resolve, including his personality. When I stated my opinion he let us know if we didn't like it go somewhere else. Well I do believe I will take him up on his offer. - pahla

Nice place to spend a couple of nights. During the week, only two other campers in the campground: was nice and quiet. No big issue, but after staying in six other campgrounds, this one was the only one that had pay showers, assuming to save money. (But yet the men's urinal ran 24/7?)
Very friendly and courteous staff. - otdrnt

.We called this park after showing up at another nearby park at which we had reservations and discovering that they were under a county boil order for contaminated water. We were therefore delighted when the nice lady we got on the phone at Northforest told us to come on in!
They had a very nice playground for kids, shuffleboard, tennis courts, mini golf, and a nice beach. We were in a pleasant area with forest and a lake - the campground was nice and quiet. - Starxd

The campground is far off the beaten track. The road to it is gravel and almost a mile from the "main" road.
There were a lot of seasonal campers there. Great CG for families; playground, swimming, miniature golf, and a sort of hayride.
Sites are mostly grass. The sites they use for transients are mostly on the ends.
Wi-fi was okay. Cell reception was acceptable. Satellite depends on your site due to trees.
My main issue with the CG was the electric. There was a single box for 2 sites, both 30 amp. My neighbor for the one night I was there was in a Class A. The circuit breaker for the box (a couple of sites away) kept blowing. The manager showed us where it was and I reset it a couple of times, the breaker was Hot to the touch. Not a very good set-up. There were no sewer hook-ups in the transient area and they charge $7 to dump. - jnateg

This park has rapidly deteriorated over the last few years. Long-term campers have full sized refrigerators and even living room furniture outside making the entire place look trashy. The pit toilets weren't clean, were practically overflowing, and the stench was terrible. The beach has eroded and is becoming overgrown with weeds. The RV sites have become more and more unlevel. The only dump station is in an awkward place in the park where bigger rigs can't fit. Shore power from the pedestal is weak and erratic. A surge blew out one of my outlets and the power was so weak I couldn't run my AC. When I brought these issues to the owner's attention he immediately became very defensive and told me not to come back. Management is terrible! We won't be back to this park! - Cap'n G

This park is really a mixed bag. The good are great views of Lake Alice from numerous sites and a nice swimming beach. There are boat docks and the fishing in excellent. Many mature trees also provide great shade. The bad is that there are no sites with sewer and the dump station is in a awkward place in the middle of the permanent campers sites. The pads are also extremely un-level (so bring extra boards or leveling blocks). The toilets are strictly "outhouse" style, dumping directly into the holding tank (so, it stinks). However, overall I do like this park since it offers access to beautiful Lake Alice. I'll stay here in the future. - Cap'n G

We stayed in a campsite right along the water and rented a very nice pontoon boat. People were very friendly and helpful. Check in is at the bar and there's a new shower house with 3 mens and 3 womens showers with on demand hot water heaters--which worked great. Showers are coin operated and clean. My kids loved the beach and spent a lot of time fishing from the boat docks. I've already reserved a campsite for next year. - riverrafter

Park is not very well kept. Managers house has a lot of junk around it. Park could be very nice if cleaned up. - Troyerman

The first thing we noticed as we drove in, was that it looked nothing like the website pictures. The second thing was the ANTS. The sites are very sandy and hubby starting spraying to kill ants before we even set up. The site was very unlevel and ended up with the driver side tires off the ground. There were a few pull through sites and these were the only that furnished 50 amp. We would have chosen a grassier site if it was 50 amp.
It is right next to the dirt track and if you go, you get in free when you stay at the park. It was a fun Saturday evening. I believe that this is the same park that is listed as Tomahawk Campground and RV Park on Good Sam.
The sad thing is that this could be a wonderful park with WORK! It needs a lot of trimming and cutting, leveling and pest control. But the sites are good size and some of the back in sites were pretty shaded.
The cell service was bad for Verizon, though the WIFI was decent. We got very few stations on our TV antenna. It is run by a younger couple and the lady was friendly and helpful.
We left 3 days early. If we go back to that area, we will find another place. - GranNan06

We stayed in this park because of a review. We were not as impressed as that reviewer. The park is in poor condition with sites overgrown with weeds and some overhanging trees, roads narrow and site location sometimes hard to figure out. Full hookups are available. This would be a delightful place to stay if it were given some major TLC. It's sad to see the conditions. - User2176

Very rustic old style camping. They have been making upgrades as of late I was told. Owner and person who checked me in were very nice. the campground is 50 years old and there are only a few sited for a rig like mine ( 35 MN ). on a lake but unless you have a tent or small trailer you have to stay above the lake and walk down to a boat dock. Like another camper mentioned the 30 amp service was covered by a coffee can? Even though it is very rustic it had a good location just of hwy 8 and we stayed for 1 night. The Passport rate of 18.00 was a good deal and I would stay here again. - twowoofs

No not big rig friendly, but the owners real friendly. Pretty shady little park on a pretty lake.
I was worried that the electrical wire was exposed; it was not in conduit. Was told they had 30 amp. Never did find it, just 110. To cover the electrical switch it had a plastic Folgers coffee can you just lift it up. If it wasn't so late when we arrived I'd have left.
Really pretty lake camp ground was updated with level sites. It's a pretty park. Their website says I should get the winter rate but they said no. - JustDon

Extremely rustic. Okay for tenting, but not set up for larger rigs. In addition to rate of nearly $30 they charged an additional $5 for using air conditioning. - tdwms

We stayed here four nights when attending the Rhinelander School of the Arts. We didn't really like the campground, but it was close to Rhinelander and convenient for the workshops. The host was friendly.
There are two shower houses. The remote shower house was dirty and all of the knobs on the showers had been removed. The only shower in the campground that worked was in the basement of the main office. Fortunately, we had full hookups and used our own shower instead.
The roads are tight, dusty, and rough. Our site was challenging to get into with a 28 foot trailer and was very uneven. We had to use nearly three boxes of leveling blocks to get the trailer level side to side. The trees are very dense which makes parking challenging, but then there is lots of nice shade which was a fair trade-off.
We would not normally stay at a campground like this one, but it was the best option in the area to attend the workshops. We may look around more before next year's workshops. - User3641

This park was no problem for our 37' fifth wheel and Dodge 3500 DRW tow vehicle. Yes, the roads are very narrow, but it's possible if you take your time and are careful. Many of the sites will accommodate a 40' or larger motorhome. I suppose "friendly" is a bit of a stretch, but you can make it work. Wonderful wooded sites give a feel of seclusion and separation from your neighbor. Pool is great. There is lake access, but no pier or anything to ease swimming. Bath house was clean, but deteriorated. Water pressure was extremely low. Manager and staff was very friendly. - Phil Hyde

We drove into this campground early in the season to check it out. We live about 20 miles away and were looking for a place to stay for a weekend, some place new. We have a 31 foot camper and there was only about 2 sites that would have accommodated us. Even if we would have been able to get into the sites (there isn't much room for trying to back in to the sites) there would have been no room for any other activities as our camper with our slides would have taken up the entire site. We stopped to check out the playground for our young children, which was okay, nothing spectacular. We then stopped at the bathrooms and went in to see how clean they were. This often tells a lot about how a campground is kept up. It was filthy dirty and disgusting. On our way out of the bathroom a women, whom we assumed was a staff member, drove up in an old van and asked if we were camping here. We replied, "No, just checking it out" She replied with a very snotty, "This isn't a public restroom, get out!" We then told her we didn't use the restroom and she sped off shaking her head. Wow! We would not return here even if we could fit our camper. She was very rude so we will take our business elsewhere. I'd advise that you do the same! - mihalko05

We were looking for an overnight place between Keiler, WI and Houghton, MI and found this campground on RVParkReviews. All the reviews were old, but decided to take a chance and call. It is a campground designed for small rigs and there were lots of them parked there for the summer - no people around as it was mid-week. The friendly lady said that she had one pull-through we would fit in (we are 38 ft 5th wheel) and she would save it for us and to call her when we got there so she could guide us in - not to come to office. We did call and she did meet us and showed us to the site. It was a long pull-though - wide and had lots of room on both sides. There was a new electrical box and it had 50 amp! We were on upper level and completely surrounded by forest and some swampy areas just outside the grounds. It would have been a nice setting but for the mosquitoes. They were swarming the minute we opened the door. I thought they were going to carry off our little 20 pound dog. I know that insects are out of the control of the campground, but it was so miserable we couldn't be outside. We were instructed to pull out the next morning and go forward through another site and around the loop, but the trees were close and we were afraid to try, so we managed to back out onto the road and then pull out the main road. The office is also a tavern and I think the woman who does the check-ins is also the bartender! She was super helpful and friendly. We would not stay again - simply because we couldn't be outside. - rkay20

Nice quiet campground. Friendly staff. The upper campground is in a traditional wooded setting. The lower campground sites are close together but convenient if you have a boat. A water filter is recommended because of the high iron content in the water. There is a quiet road between the lower campground and the lake front. Very nice lake. Nice boat dock. Small beach. Good dock fishing. There is a dump station. Some seasonal campers. There is a bar on-site. Great food in the area. We stayed in the lower campground with our 35' rig and had plenty of room. We would stay here again. - Rudedude

We arrived on October 5th knowing that the campground would turn off the water two days later. This is common during this time of the year. There are upper and lower areas in the campground. We were in the lower area which is across the street from the lake. Since the hookups were on the opposite side, we had to use an extension cord for the electric hookup. There are no pull-through sites in the lower area; however, we did not have any problems backing in our big rig. The campground was not crowded and very quiet during this time of the year. Visit their website; it provides photos and detailed information about the campsites. We would camp here again. - tumbleweeds

If you like wood ticks and mosquitoes this is the park for you. Owners were very rude, and bathrooms were not clean and sites were terrible. We have never been so happy to leave a campground. I want to say the bathrooms were not clean, that would be polite, they were dirty. The owner was very rude to both me and my wife, and insulting. The roads are very narrow so if you have a large unit, you are going to have issues. Our electric did not work, and went up to the building, it took several hours before someone showed up, and they did turn it on. The boat dock is very shallow and we ended up not being able to launch here and had to drive another five miles to find a decent launch which was very busy and charged us extra. The mosquito's were so bad that we could not sit by the fire not matter how much spray we used, we are campers so a few bugs do not bother us, this was bad. We are not hard to please and I have never written a bad review before, so trust me when I tell you it is not a place we will ever stay again. - Nighmare

Nice park but expensive. Have about 4 spaces that allow satellite reception. Nice level concrete pads in some locations.. - Johngflyer

I have very mixed feelings about this park. If you are a big rig (40 ft & over) I suggest that you take a ride in your towed vehicle and check out your site before accepting it. We were "escorted" to our pull-thru site (#12). After negotiating a terribly tight corner we arrived at the lake next to a busy boat ramp, the beach (?) and the boat rental. The sewer hookup was unusable regardless of the length of your hose due to location and we found it necessary to back our 45' motorhome up the steep hill in order to get out of the site because of tight turns & trees. We later found many acceptable sites which we could have occupied. Personnel in the office were not friendly nor were they knowledgeable about what size rigs can negotiate their very tight roads. Much of the park is park models. It is very treed so we had no satellite. I believe that we would have rated this park higher had personnel been more attuned to the needs of their customer. The $30 rate was an out-of-season rate. - Freedom Bus

This campground is exactly what you would expect of the north woods region of Wisconsin. Lots of pine trees and a very pretty lake easily accessible to all sites. Our site was a back in but they moved some things to help us maneuver our 43 foot 5th wheel in to make it a pull thru. The lake has a sand beach and we rented a row boat to fish on this picturesque lake. The fee for the boat was only $3 per day and included life vests, oars and an anchor - a good deal. The roads in the park were rather tight but we would definitely stay here again. - jjones5996

We made a reservation for memorial day (3 nights) and were advised by the owners that they were pet friendly. We have 2 7month old German Shepherds. They are still in the puppy stage and just learned how to bark. When people would come by at first they would bark and as soon as someone came close to pet them they would get quite and lick them. The Owner came to our site and told us we needed to get them away from the road because he had been watching all day and someone is going to get bit. We had several women come by with their children and stop and never once were our dogs aggressive. yes they barked and we are in training on getting them acclimated to the camping routine. The owner was a total jerk and make us feel unwelcomed. We packed up and left so we wasted 2 nights of fees and will never go back. Such a shame because we were really looking forward to this weekend. If you are looking for grump host sight this place if for you. WILL NEVER RECOMMEND OR GO BACK. THEY SUCK! - SBecker

Stayed here because they got the best reviews in Minocqua. Price reflects one free night with Passport America. campgrounds was very clean, our site was sand, but we used our carpet. Hard to maneuver but once in the site was shady and roomy with beautiful pine trees. Lots of seasonals and they seemed to cater to them. High price for bad firewood. the fire pits were in ground with no air holes so fire did not burn the best. Charge for WIFI, charge for showers, lots of charges. Next time we will probably look someplace else. - dalebonnie
