Just about every site in the campground is desirable with amenities all around. Great place to stay for families with kids of all ages. You get the feeling they really know how to take care of their guests- and they do. Beautiful sites all around the lake.
Great main Lodge, good size sites but bring extension cords for electrical hook ups…. Odd outlet placement, very clean and friendly office personal, usual price to stay and don't forget the racetrack across the way has races Saturday night
Park has several types of sites available, some rustic, some full service and some in-between. Park is very wooded, campsites are close together. We were there over Memorial Day weekend and despite the park being full, it was still very peaceful.
The park has just started same day reservations, to allow the “rare” cancellation sites to be filled the sites are reserved months in advance.The area has numerous privately owned campgrounds if you can’t get a site in the park. It is well worth a visit,
Great campground for the family. Hosts provide plenty of activities like a DJ, breakfast, and lunch and donuts! Rentals for golf carts are available and a store on site. Arcade for the kids. Public showers were also free if needed. They could have used a little TLC on the roads into the sites as the rain created large holes and puddles which were a bit hard to navigate a trailer or motorhome but when we were in our site all was well!
Such a wonderful experience! After a bit of uncertainty about how to access the sites (they were listed some places as "canoe in") we were pleasantly surprised to see the sites were just a walk over a bridge :) All 3 canoe sites are on a small island. (We were lucky enough to be the only people camping at any of the sites!)
All of the canoe sites are great! We stayed in site #1 which was closest to the bridge (and bathroom just over the bridge ;) )- nice level site and large. Site #2 was a bit smaller but more secluded. Site #3 was large but wasn't as level (though there was WAY more water access- 3 sides of water views!) Walk to the sites was not bad at all.
I would highly recommend these 3 campsites! We saw the rest of the campground and it looked pretty standard, but these sites are a gem. Showers are at the main campground, but there is a pit toilet and water access just across the bridge near the parking area.
The park/area is really nice too! The park has a beach, small playground area, a bike trail, and some hiking areas. Nice lake to canoe or kayak on as well. Plus the nature center has programs too! The stream had turtles, crayfish, and frogs to check out as well :)
*check out the Green Circle trail and the Stevens Point Sculpture Garden if you wanna get out of the park :)
Small clean park. Super tight sites. Nice little pool and splash pad. Camp store and polite staff. They actually vacuum out the fire pits after each camper. Nearly no privacy, but you’re probably net here for the nature. Spendy but secure.
A basic state park, mostly for tent camping. Clean bathrooms with showers. Pretty quiet and lots of trees. The first time we stayed they had a terrible gypsy moth infestation that had denuded all the deciduous trees. There was a carpet of caterpillars on the ground as well as caterpillar poop falling from above. Not as bad as it sounds. Ok, it was…. It proximity to The Wisconsin Dells is one of the attractions to this campground as it is about 5 miles north of town. An inexpensive way to stay near an expensive destination.
If you want privacy, some spots are better than others. There are a lot of wide open sites with no trees or vegetation, so it’s like staying on someone’s yard with a bunch of strangers. That said, this is a beautiful park. Lots of cool trails and the lake is perfect for canoeing and kayaking. Showers were very nice and the warm water lasted a long time. Nice playground right next to the shower so the kids could play while we showered.
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!
Devils Lake’s campground is a well situated campground within the park. I have only been able to camp there once after trying close to 10 times. This park tends to fill up months in advance and Reserve America requires a two night minimum during the high season. If you are able to lock in a site it will be well worth the effort however book well in advance if you plan on staying there.
Wheelers is a great, well established campground close to Devils Lake State Park. The camping comes with flushable toilets and warm showers.
Only negative is that the bugs can get unseasonably bad there due to some of the low lying areas with water… certainly not their fault.
We stayed 2 nights in a PT. The first site they had us in was a back in right behind the office, but the ground was so uneven (sloped up) we bottomed out and still couldn't reach our utilities. We upgraded to a pull through in the back of the park. Everything was just run down, and the playground was all broken… luckily we don't have human children. The fire rings have been moved around and there are several burn spots across the campsites. We had fun in the Dells, but will try to find somewhere else to stay next time. Don't miss the tiki fire logs for sale in the gift shop; they are AWESOME!
This is a private “resort” type campground with something for everyone, except peace and quiet and privacy. This is a mostly RV campground with a handful of tent sites wedged in almost as an afterthought. I stopped in and talked with the campground personnel for a while before getting a tour of grounds. There are several loops with lots of long term campers/RVers. There were some cute cabins and even yurts. Behind the office was a large pond with a sand beach, lots of blow up pool toys, a bar, and volleyball, plus there are trikes and bikes available after you play mini-golf. There was an extensive calendar of events for the campers to enjoy including a chili cook-off and activities just for the kiddos (including a water ballon filling station!). This is the place to go if you are looking for a party type campground. Be careful when you arrive and drive to your site as kids are running around and riding their bikes everywhere! The campground has several bath houses scattered between the loops and all were kept very clean.
This was my first time camping next to a lake and we loved listening to the water falling asleep and waking up in the morning. The sunrise was absolutely gorgeous. The main swimming area of the beach had a nice sandy bottom and clear water. We stayed at backpack site 21. I was a little apprehensive doing a backpack site pregnant and with a toddler but there was a wagon shared between 3 campsites available at the parking area to carry your gear to your site. There was a nice picnic table and a couple benches as well as a fire pit with a moveable grill top. There was also a porta potty shared for sites #20-22. Our campsite was fairly secluded. It was also quite a hike from the heart of state park so we ended up driving to trailheads and to the playground and beach. The first night we were there the flies were horrific and biting at dusk and it was miserable being outside. Just going into our tent quickly caused at least 30-50 flies to sneak in. The second night was windy and we had no flies. After reading some reviews the flies can occasionally be a nuisance in mid to late summer. We were there end of July. We would absolutely camp here again, the sunrises were breathtaking. I think next time we will try for the other side of the lake.
Duck Creek Campground is very family friendly. They have weekend themed activities for kids and adults, a clean swimming pond with inflatables, volleyball & basketball courts and play structures for the kids. The food served in the restaurant is delicious, my favorite is the gyros! The bathrooms and shower were clean and warm! We were surrounded by friendly people and welcoming owners and employees.
