6 Reviews of Dalrymple Park and Campground
Hidden treasure

This campground is 30.00 a night. This beautiful campground is right on the edge of Lake Superior. All three campgrounds in this area are actually this one. I would not recommend this campground for anything larger than a pop up or teardrop. The sites are close together and hilly. The road to the back area where we stayed was narrow. Has vault toilets. Is extremely beautiful!!! I have attached photos and video of the campground.

Amazing but rustic

This is absolutely incredible Campground. So beautiful on the shores of Lake superior. There is a lower road where all of the sites are right on the lake and you can watch the kayakers, sailboats, and the ferry boat going to Madeline island.

It is a little more rustic though as there are not flush toilets or showers. You can shower in town at the Rex center or take a swim in the lake. There is electric and places to fill for water. There is not a dump station but we have taken it up to the Red Cliff casino and they have a dump station there. There’s a charge but it’s minimal.

The town of Bayfield is adorable. Lots of shops, great dining, and lots to do.

The campground is cheap and it includes all you can burn wood. We continue to go back over and over because this is one of our faves.

Like a state park in Bayfield

City-run campgrounds can be of variable quality, and the Bayfield community campground at Dalrymple city park really sets the bar high. The quality of this campground is on a par with a small state park! Set in a deep old forest of tall shady trees, the campsites are large, spacious, well kept and in pristine quality. Many are in primo spots along the bluffs overlooking Lake Superior and the Apostle Islands, and many can accomodate a variety if RV’s and campers. However, with respect for tenters who like a more rustic experience, there are some primitive walk in sites that are set off to the side in a nice secluded woodsy location. Right within the city limits of beautiful Bayfield, with all kinds of amenities and possible day trips, but with a peaceful quiet retreat into the woods at day’s end. A quality experience!

Camp Next to Lake Superior

Oh thank goodness, we camped out at Dalrymple Park and Campground in Bayfield, WI as supposed to our original reservation at a boring campground in Cornucopia, WI. Dalrymple was just minutes away from Bayfield, and boat rides away from the Apostle Islands and Madeline Island. There are 28 sites surrounded by canopies of trees and there are wooded fences along the sides next to Lake Superior. It was a perfect spot to settle in for camping. Some sites were drive-in and others were back-ins perfect for RVs under 30 feet. Camping is $25 a night for 2 vehicles or 1 RV for each site. There is a fire ring, picnic table, electric hook-up, and a stump to cut some firewood at each site. Bathrooms are vault toilets and are walking distance. There were plenty of FREE firewood piles near the entrance. Cell-signal was strong for Verizon. A few of the back-in sites were steep but spacious and the drive-in sites were a bit small. It is a family-friendly campground. Pets are welcome but must be on a leash. The mosquitoes were pretty active so bring your repellant or citronella to ward them off. The view was great, but the noise level at night was a damper. We had a rowdy camper who had no consideration or camping etiquette when it's past 10:00 pm. The campground itself was overall wonderful.

Convenient to Bayfield, Amazing views of Lake Superior

Nice campground. Pretty primitive - no running water in the bathrooms so no showers and pit toilets only, but there are two city water connections for drinking water. Electric hookups at the campsites. The sites are pretty close to each other, not much privacy, but the sites along Lake Superior are beautiful. Easy walk to Bayfield. No reservations. Not much room to turn around large vehicles, and a steep hill to the road. There is a free shuttle to shows at Big Top Chautauqua that picks up in the campground. Also, the city provides free firewood!
