Considering the proximity to Wisconsin Dells and all the hotels, outlet malls and distractions this little piece of nature was calm, cool and relaxing.
The site wasn't much and not very much room for a large tent. The bathrooms didn't look particularly bad, but also not much.
But the attraction here isn't the tent pad or outhouses! The lake is beautiful. You can use your own boat or rent for very reasonable prices. There is a beach to swim and trails all over.
The staff is one of the nicest we've encountered and our neighbors were friendly and respectful. Lots of families.
It was a little pricey ($27 for camping + $11 for park entry + $6 for wood) but you get what you pay for and it was worth it. Also, buy wood outside the park cheaper if you need to save a dollar.
We’ve stayed here three times now- one last minute middle of summer spontaneous trip, one Memorial Day weekend trip, and an October fall trip. The park has beautiful trails and the lake is perfect for canoeing and fishing. We tried to go up to the supper club for dinner on our last trip, but the wait was too long. Appetizers and drinks on the patio were wonderful though!
This was a trip where very little of our time was spent at the campsite, and most of our time was on kayaks on the lake itself. The campsite was very open, and very close to neighboring sites. The site has many tall trees and a very high canopy with little to no underbrush for privacy from neighboring sites. Many other campsites were hammock camping due to the abundance of size appropriate trees.
Bathroom and shower facilities were close by and well kept.
For us this trip was about the time on the water, and the lake was calm and beautiful. The campground has an easy access boat launch for power boats and paddle boats. The steep cliffs and rock formations make for some great views while paddling.
This is a very clean and nice park. Nice fishing and great river.
There are many trails, large campsites, grounds have great showers and bathrooms, there are some pit toilets. Large lake with an outstanding restraunt/ supper club just off the trail system.
Nice State Park to stay while visiting the Dells. It is a true escape from the busy visitor attractions. If you are from out of state, it is cheaper to purchase a WI park pass. Be warned: the park charges an entrance fee each day you are there. We were a little shocked. It set us back $30!
They have large sites , lots of hiking trails , a lake, newer shower/ bathrooms. I would like a more private site where you did not hear or see your neighbors but it is one of the best campgrounds we have been to.
Campsite was great, the only downside was its proximity to the freeway, meaning that you could hear traffic at almost all times.
Lots of trails to choose from for hiking or running! And on-site water sport rentals makes it easy if you don't have gear. Very versatile camping experience. A lot of sites are almost like doubles so a shared entry point. Might be awkward if you don't know or want to know the neighbors so check online and make sure you have a more secluded site if you want one.
I visited mirror state park in Wisconsin on Friday, July 7 where I met up with a backpacking friend who is hiking the IceAge. This is where he stopped to meet up with me we had a decent campsite number 15 had a nice Sanpat for tents couple trees for a hammock tent and they allowed me to park my car for four days.
