This is a 50/50 campground -- one half for the seasonal campers, the other half for those of us who are just passing through. The seasonals have access to the better sites along the Wisconsin River while the other sites are much closer to the freeway. However, this campground is fine as a stopover. WiFi was nonexistent. Verizon 4G LTE was excellent.
We've been coming to this campground for several years, and it has always been a treat. There are a variety of sites, most very secluded and private. We normally try to stay at one of the sites in the outer loop that is close to Ottawa Lake. Though the lake is small, it has a clean, sandy beach and dogs are allowed to swim at one end of the lake. Several sites are actually on the lake. However, these sites are all on a steep embankment and none of them has electricity. The park's electric sites are currently a mix of 30A and 50A. There are some fine hiking trails nearby, the Scuppernong trail system is the closest.
Camped at site #109. Great site, but 30 amp power kept tripping so we were forced to run extension cords into our RV using the two, 20 amp outlets. The park scenery is great, but the electrical problems (which I've written about before) continue. There's hope. High Cliff may get all its electric sites upgraded to 50 amp next year if there's enough money in the state budget. Fingers crossed.
While this campground does have a view of Lake Michigan, it's across a 4-lane highway that's pretty busy most of the time. If you camp in one of the pull-through sites (which have the best view), there is VERY little space between sites. I would never consider starting a campfire as I'd be afraid of setting fire to the rig next to me. Also, people park in FRONT of the pull through sites, which means you may end up knocking on camper doors asking people to move their toads so you can get out. On the plus side, their WiFi was great! Very strong signal strength. The minuses of Village Inn would be ok if they charged $30 or $35 a night: but Village Inn charges $49 per night. No weekly or monthly rates.
We camped in Weborg site #104: one of the best sites in the park as it has a direct view and access to Lake Michigan. There are only a handful of sites in Weborg which makes it very secluded and private for a state park. Plus, you're in walking distance of Fish Creek which has great shops and restaurants. We could not have asked for a better location. However, like many older Wisconsin state parks, the electric hookups can operate poorly, especially in bad weather: like we had during our stay at Weborg. After a rain storm we were unable to get an air conditioner running off our electric pedestal. And in 90 degree humid weather a great location was not enough to keep us here and we left early: after reserving the site a year in advance.
We camped here the first week this new state campground opened so keep that in mind as you read this. While this new state campground certainly has potential, it's currently unfinished. The dump station wasn't operable and you had to haul your trash out. In addition, the 3-mile road into the campground is gravel that creates an incredible amount of dust and kicks up stones onto any tow vehicle. However, I'm told that over the next year all these things will be fixed + an additional 50 campsites are being added. This state campground is located near some great fishing and boating areas and the local is beautiful. Just keep in mind that it's a diamond in the rough.
We camped at site #103 in the Weborg loop of Peninsula State Park.. This is a 30 amp electric only site. We've camped here before in a smaller (35') Class A, but it was difficult maneuvering our 41-footer. We clipped several bushes and trees trying to get in and out of our site. Also, site #103 is not very level. We wanted to pull into the site with the front of out RV facing the lake, but could not do it as we would have been too out of level. So we ended up backing in. However, this loop of Peninsula SP is well worth it. The views are breathtaking. This park has superb hiking and biking trails. In addition Fish Creek is a short drive (or bike ride) away and has an abundance of restaurants and stores.
We stayed over a weekend in our 41-foot Class A in site #19, a full hookup pull-through site. Staff was friendly and courteous. There are wooded and open-area sites. Site #19 was open which we asked for because we wanted a clear view of the sky for our sat dish. The site was a bit pricey, but this is Door County, Wisconsin, which is more upscale tourist territory.
We camped (or tried to) in site #103. However, the 30A GFCI breaker kept tripping and we were given an alternate site. I was able to talk with a park tech who tried to fix the bad breaker (to no avail). He said that the electric hookups were showing their age as they were installed in the 1980's. This has happened to us in another electric site at this park. Besides that, the park is located on a limestone bluff overlooking Lake Winnebago. There are plenty of bike and hiking trails.
We stayed in site 005 which had 30A electric in our 41-foot Class A for a week. We were able to walk down to the Bad River, a shallow, wide stream, from the back of site 005. But it was a good 1/2-mile through the woods. Nevertheless, on one walk to the river, I saw a doe and her fawn wading in the river. Though the shower building was about a 1/2-mile from our site, there were several showers and stalls and was kept very clean. However, the high point of this park are the falls along the Bad River. One word: spectacular!
First, I did NOT camp at this campground. I live nearby and made a short visit to see if I wanted to camp there. So the only thing I can speak of is access to this park. Access is not good for a large RV. The road into the campground is steep, fairly narrow, and eroded to the point that there are large ruts. I would be afraid of bottoming out. However, to be fair, I saw one Class A that had successfully made the trip into the campsite.
