5 Parks near Wausau, Wisconsin
Sep 2016 - $20.00
Nice County park with campground. Beautiful tall pine trees and back in sites. Some noise from trains and traffic but wasn'the too bad. No fires allowed. We didn'the get the restroom codes when we made our reservations (did not use them). Lots of empty spaces on the Labor Day weekend. Our site (8) had an open ground on the 30 amp circuit but we just ran out cord to the next site that was empty and power was fine there. Park was convenient for us this trip but will probably use one of the other County parks if we go back again. Price was right, and potable water and dump available in the park. - N8MD

Very nice clean park, was a great place to stay. Only a couple of complaints, we could not find ANY water in the park for drinking water(better fill your tank before arriving). The other complaint was the mens restroom was locked all day on Wed. - bandtgorv

This is a good place if you need an overnight stay near Wausau. There are not too many campgrounds in the vicinity. Nice back-in spaces in tall trees.
Registration is self-service. We never saw either a park ranger or a camp host. We called ahead to see if space was available. The phone number gets you the county parks department. They said they were sure there were spaces (this was on a weekday) and gave us the restroom combinations.
A great little campground for $20 a night. The only downside is that it is in the middle of a shopping center area so the traffic is challenging, and there is a certain amount of traffic noise all night. - John45

A good portion of the water and electric sites are permanent sites. So definitely call ahead and make reservations for water and electric sites. Most of those sites are not level, so bring plenty of leveling boards. There is a LOT of room there for tent camping and primitive RV camping. They do have a dump station. They have two lakes on the property. The owners are very kind and very accommodating. This is my 5th year there for the summer Twister motorcycle event. I will be back again next year! - thetonz

We stayed here over Labor Day weekend. The sites were so small we could barely get our camper into the site. Sites are so close to each other we felt like we were sharing them with the campers next to us. The campground itself was large with many permanent sites. Too many of the permanent sites were rundown and dirty looking. Playground was in dire need of upgrading as well as the bathroom and showers. The fire ring was so close to the camper we were unable to use it. - AnneH

This was actually our first experience that we wish we would have paid better attention to the negative reviews. I do want to point out that we didn't have any negative experiences with any of the staff, but the property itself was the problem for us.
The sites are very close together. This is the closest we've been to our neighbors in any campsite. Not only that, but with our trailer and truck parked perpendicular to each other, the entire driver's side of my truck was sticking into the road. I understand this was because I have a 34' trailer, but the staff stated they would have no problem accommodating the space I needed. The layout was easy to understand, but the roads were very narrow, and there were decorations on the corners that made turning a little rough. Backing in wasn't easy due to this either, and since everything is dirt/gravel, I'm only happy it wasn't wet. The site wasn't level, and I'm told we had the most level site on the property. The sites didn't appear to be kept up by the owners, I'm confident we left the site much cleaner than we arrived.
There wasn't really much to do in the area either. We did allow our little one to play on the wooden train (which was pretty nice/neat), and there was a little playground. They do offer a boat rental, but don't mention that the damage deposit must be in cash, with no close access to an ATM. Not to mention, they explained that they don't do their walk around until you bring the boat back, which seems a little shady.
We did have to use the laundry facilities, which worked fine, but they smelled terrible. Probably because they were next to the shower rooms and the dump station, but they smelled bad! Fortunately, our clothes did get clean.
I don't really have anything great to say about this property. The people were not rude to me, but due to the spacing and lack of activities, we will not be staying here again. - joshnichols84

Nice campground on the lake. Easy access for boaters. The swimming beach isn't much of one. They do tend to nickel and dime you. If you want to use the boat landing you pay extra. You also pay extra to dock your boat. - carmenhass

Nice park, lots of trees. Not big rig friendly. Narrow Roads, low hanging limbs, trees close to roads, tight turns. I have a 38' fifth wheel and according to the website information it seems big rig friendly. I even called the office to make sure but the woman on the phone looked online and told me what I already knew. She apparently had never been out to the park. I found out it was not big rig friendly. Sites are big enough IF you can get in them. I would not return. To bad, it's a nice park on a nice lake at a good price. They have a 2 night minimum stay. Would have rated it higher if it were big rig accessible. Make sure to take on water at the "A frame", it's at the dump station a few miles before the campground. No spigots in the campground so you have to go all the way back to the dump station. - Coley

Wow $39 bucks for electric and water was hard for me to believe.
They don't even have a sewer hook up, cable or WiFi. It has easy access to I-39 and also that is all you can hear here.But I need a place to sleep over for one night and this area north is void of good RV parks.
The lady working in the store is very nice park seems well keep. The back part a long Wisconsin River is for people staying here full time if your passing thru you get to look a I-39. It is on the Wisconsin River. Has lots of stuff you can rent daily.
Read all the rules.
If we was passing this way again and needed a place to stop for a night it easy to get here. Just don't pay attention to your GPS after getting off interstate. - JustDon

We got the winter rate for our stay. There are a lot of "permanent" campers/residents in the park. One small permanent camper was being relocated to the spot right next to us that is a long pull through spot! Since there is no sewer hook-ups at the sites, the permanent residents have tanks under their campers for sewage collection. This wasn't especially appealing! Overall the campground was good, a nice restaurant within walking distance too so we didn't have to disconnect. We would stay again but request a site down from the permanent camper! - Foxes

Overall, good campground. The spots that were open were in open field with little to no shade. Water pressure was good, power consistent. Easy in out with pull thru sites. Don't expect to get a riverside site. Filled with seasonal campers. Lots for kids to do with peddle bikes and carts, jump pillow and swim pool. Bath house was clean but a little worn with paint peeling off. Didn't use the shower. Staff was friendly but not real knowledgable. No sewer hookups but they will send a honey Wagon by for $6 to pump you out. Their is a bar and grill on the north end of the campground but we did not stop at but we heard the food was good. A little road noise from the nearby freeway, and the campground is a bit of a challenge to get to via frontage roads. - JaycoJoanRick
