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

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

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

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

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

We stayed at Indian Shores in July of 2015. I can't say enough good things about this campground. We stayed in site 601 which looks very narrow on their map, but we had plenty of space and the positioning of the site gave us sweeping views of Lake Tomahawk as well as the Campground's beach. Each day saw people cleaning and weed whacking in order to keep up appearances. Our site was perfectly level left to right but pitched a little toward the lake. Not a big deal, just had to drop the landing gear a bit. We had 50A and full hookup without any issues. We had friends staying in one of the pull through sites which had a full concrete slab. They loved that area as they have small dogs and found it easier to take them out there, but it was relatively hot on their site versus ours which was close to the lake getting the great lake breeze. We rented a boat from the campground on Saturday and had an Amazing time. The store was not very well stocked, but they have an RV dealership out by the road that had all of the camping needs...just not at the store. Their firewood wasn't sold or stored in bundles, but real wood that was seasoned and burned well stored in an outbuilding. The seasonal folks (of which there were many) have their places teally decked out nice and the sites are huge with many storing their boats on their site. This was the best overall camping experience we've ever had and this will definitely be on our list of places to return to every year - if not more than once per year. - Samron68

A very nice campground. We stayed here for the 4th of July weekend. Our site was in the circle with the lake view. They had someone show us to our site and helped me back into site #2 which had a cement pad. It was more than big enough to walk around the trailer with the slide and awning out. We had an OK view of the lake, a site farther down in the circle would have been a better view, but ours was OK. There was a total of 6 cement pad sites with lake views. Twp of which were down by the beach. These could be nice except you get the boat launch traffic, and due to the winds "DO NOT use your awinings! They have plenty of choices for sites, from wooded to open with a few trees. They have a small pool that we didn`t use, but it didn`t seem packed even for a holiday weekend. The beach area was OK, but being on the windy side of the lake all the debris would wash up on the beach, just sticks and such. It was rather rocky with larger pebbles. The restaurant was surprisingly excellent! The game room could use a little more room and a few more games, otherwise it was OK. This campground is older and they need to start adding to the park to keep up with the added sites. The drive into Minocqua, Woodruff is short. Obviously there's lots to see and do in the area. We actually found a nice secluded beach off of county road "D" that was picture perfect, I believe the name of the lake was Big Carr Lake. All in all, a nice campground, we will be back. - dodge guy

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

Late in the season so no reservations but no difficulty getting a pull-thru site. It is a large campground with lots of trees that make it kind of hard to get around some places. It had a lot of seasonal people. It was nice to have full hook-ups. Located on a lake and close to Minoqua and all the shopping and eating available there. - mountainfan

This wooded campground sits on a quaint small lake. Our site was waterfront, but we had to navigate down a steep hill to access it. This also meant the bathrooms will up the same hill. Many seasonal, full-time residents. They are located on the top of the hill where the full hookups are located. Our site had electric, water, and cable TV. Price seems a bit high for no sewer hookup. Plus the showers were 50 cents for 4 minutes (not excessive, but seemed strange at a private campground). There was WiFi available at the office only. So many trees that hubby did not attempt satellite TV hookup--thank goodness for the cable TV. Also, not a blade of grass at our campsite, so we spread the rug out. It rained overnight, and tons of dirt clung to the back of our rug. We were able to brush some of it off, but still took way too much dirt with us. No other big complaints about the campground, but I would probably look for a different place if I returned to the area. - RagTopDay
