Ok, large area.

Quiet country setting

Awesome place for those that want have a campfire and star gaze. Personal with private bathrooms with soft water and a heater if you need it.  Staying there I notice the owners checking bathrooms a few times a day. They take pride in there property. 

The owners bought the place 3 years ago. You can see they are spending a lot of effort on the property. Book early next year, the word is getting out on this little Mom and Pop place. Oh yea…. It has a nice little motel for those friends you invite up.

One of our Favorites

We enjoy camping at S’more Fun and kayaking on the lake. The owners are very personable. There are no golf carts to watch out for. The owners have one to deliver wood to your campsite but other than that, there are no others. We try to camp there at least once a year.

Awesome campground !

We are spending a month at Holtwood Campground Oconto, in our motor home, while preparing our boat for winter storage. Loving it here! Spacious sites and nice view! Office staff are so very helpful and patient with me. Just love those girls! And the groundskeepers are constantly working on the landscape. We will for sure be back in 2020!

Nice and quite and friendly and clean

It would be nice if they had sewer at some weekend sites

fun for groups

This was a fun place to go with a group of people. Even though there was a huge rainstorm before we got there and had standing water in our site, it drained quickly. They had a DJ there which was fun to listen to in the common area while with others.

The good: Lots for kids to do in their kid-friendly pool, arcade, park, and bounce house area that our group of kids loved. They offer golf carts to rent which is very nice (but a bit pricey) 

The bad: I docked a star because It was loud which isn't the campgrounds fault until they don't do anything about it, which there wasn't. We had a great time with our group but were able to have fun while still being relatively quiet. There were 2 different groups around us that were loud into the early hours of the night. 

Overall we had a great time with our group and as a whole really liked it. We would go back again. We could have just had bad luck on the weekend we went but would have liked to see some sort of authority there to keep a few groups contained a bit. Would go somewhere else if wanted a "Secluded" stay.

Great for kids and adults

We have gone here a few times this summer and have loved it every time. We have gone with groups as well as with just our small 3 person family. We have stayed in a field site as well as wooded sites. The field sites are good for groups and going with friends, if you are looking for a quiet low key experience then go to a wooded site. 

There are always themes and activities going on the weekends for our 3-year-old to do which she loves. They have 3 pool areas one for really little ones with a 18" pool and a fun splash pad which are all fenced off so adults can sit in there and not worry about they straying to deeper pools. There are 2 bigger pools also with lots of seating. They have 2 big water slides the kids love going down over and over and even fun for adults to do. There are 2 playgrounds which are a good size and safe. 

They even have a little fishing pond, minigolf, and arcade!

I think my favorite part was the office/bar area. They have fresh donuts in the morning as well as coffee. They have a good selection of apparel and toys/gifts/necessities. There is a bar attached to it that has AMAZING food. I was so pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. The best part of it is ITS CHEAP! The candy, donuts, food, and drinks are inexpensive which makes it nice to go there. Our tradition is after pumping out going to the bar and ordering buffalo chicken wraps and eating them on their outside tables. 

Keep it up quietwoods!

Lots to do

Yes there are lots of things to do to keep the kids busy and the sites are great, but… it is expensive!!

Private sites

Clean showers that are their own facility on the back side of building for restrooms, single shower, toilet and sink with locking door. 

This is one of the newer facilities as it was previously a day use only facility with a boat landing.

River rafting trips

Clean showers used their services to get a tubing trip in on Peshtigo River.

Peaceful

Great tent site on water, near excellent shower bath facilities, swimming and fishing right from site.   This is only park that is w host in national forest, many others are available that do not offer discounts for senior and disabled w america beautiful federal pass this one does allow.  With all amenities.  W in forest there are many parks and dispersed camping as well.

Great views

St park pass required in addition to camping fees, fire wood and ice available, ice cream shop not far from park, lots of trails, tower to walk up to, beach not in camping area but close by, on Lake Winnebago, butterfly fishing pond, plenty of fishing. No dogs allowed on beach, some new electrical work was done to add to sites, flush toilets w showers.

Lots of hiking trails

Nice county park

On lake Winnebago w boat landing, can canoe or kayak shoreline if not too windy, hiking trails, kids play area, close to town.  No entrance fee.

There are Indian effigy mounds in park which are burial grounds and are not to be touched.

Very family oriented

Place is filled w activities for kids, heated swimming pool large large pool, water slide, free movies on fri night cartoons sat morning, the tent sites are on a mowed grass area w porta potties, but free showers and restrooms are in park, very crowded on weekends.  Many rentals available pass for water slide includes free mini golf, arcade free games for kids to participate in.

Staff does well to keep up with the crowds, holiday weekends usually live music in pavillion.  Its a place to have fun and enjoy others, not a quiet place, just depends what you are looking for.

It is on lake partridge for fishing and boating activities, also connected to the Waupaca chain of lakes, fishing pond w in park, canoe rental.  They  added a newer section for campers a few years ago, there is one trail for walks but along the lake shore swampy and tooo tooo many mosquitoes.

Very quite, but

Great campground, very quite, extremely clean rest room facilities, lots of trees. Pool is extremely cold! The bar & grill is only open Thursday-Saturday. This is also where you need to go to get items for mini golf and is attached to the ice cream shop, arcade, etc. With this being said it's extremely difficult to get anything for the kids if need be or to get ice if needed. We tried multiple times through out the weekend, either no one was there or wouldn't answer the window. Very disappointing! Especially when you have younger kids that want to play the golf or have ice cream. We were looking forward to eating at the bar & grill. No such luck. We probably would have changed the dates we were staying had we known in advance that everything is pretty much closed Sunday-Wednesday (or at least minimal hours). We weren't even told upon check in on Saturday that they close those days. If want just quiet time to yourself and not worried about all the amenities then this is a great place! Otherwise look elsewhere if those are wanted or needed amenities.

Decent

Couldn’t find any easy access to the water. No maps or signs or anything to tell you about the place. Right behind a housing authority too so was a bit sketchy.

Expensive

Expensive and not much to do. Attractions are shut down most of the time. Won't be going back.

Good spot to camp

The camp ground was under expansion when we went, which is good cause there weren't many open sites when we booked. The bathrooms were clean and the site was a good wooded tent site.

Ok

Most of the spots are set up for RVS with little privacy. Right on the river with access to the water for kayaking and stuff.

Good campground

All around good campground. Sites weren’t too close to each other and were at a normal level of seclusion. Beach and fishing area

Good family campground

Very children and family oriented, some shorter trails, fishing area, playground, beach (always full of weeds). Spots were pretty open

Great campground

Good sized sites, pretty secluded. Convenient location with trails around the campground.

Family Fun

Tons of things to do for the whole family. The pool and waterslide is perfect for hot days. My family really enjoyed the “Hey Ride” 

Will be returning!!

Rustic campsites

Its been awhile since we've been here, so we will be making a trip in the future. The place is great! Big secluded sites. Plenty of shade. My favorite sites are on the river as its relaxing and comforting listening to the fast moving stream especially at night. You can bring your ATV to ride on the ATV track there or on the trails in the woods. We seen deer while riding through the trails. If you dont have an ATV you can always just kick back and relax or go to the track and watch a race of they're hosting an event that weekend. Its just an overall great rustic campsite. They recently updated the sites to have electric. They do have RV sites with full hookups. Showers and flushable toilets up at the entrance. Brochures and local information available as well. You can fish but all ive caught was some chubs. I heard you can get trout. You wont be disappointed! Its run by the small city/town/village of Tigerton. support the small local communities. There is a small restaurant/gas station down the road or go into town and there's a grocery store and a local tavern.

Huge campground

First off this campground isn't called Kastle campground anymore, it's now called Farmer Genes Campground. And its HUGE over 500 sites. We went here for 4th of july weekend. Check in was quick and smooth. It was overall an ok campground. I'm not sure I'd go back. Very busy with golf carts. They had a nice pool and splash pad for younger kids. They had plenty to for the kids, playground, mini golf,basketball etc. They have a beach as well. You can "rent" kayaks,canoes or other water toys. They told me it was $10 and when you bring back the oar and or life jacket you get the $10 back. Store with anything and everything you would need. Even sell ice cream! Nice for those hot days. They had fireworks and a live band Saturday night. Fireworks werent going very high and a few had the embers come into the crowd sending the spectators running. Seasonals weren't very friendly. We were walking down to the water to get a seat for the fireworks, we stopped on the side of the road to talk about potential areas to sit and the seasonal behind us said "sure you can sit there if my pay seasonal fee for the year" very rude! We had no intention of sitting in front of them. The sites were stacked on top of each other, nothing in between for any type of privacy. Upside was the amish came in selling their baked goods and eggs. The showers are pay showers- a quarter for 3 minutes. First time i seen that. In the picture i was standing in the next site to take the picture. Thabkfully noone was there or it would've been cramped for sure.

Nice large sights

Nice and shady. Sights have space. Pool, showers, dump station, mini golf and other activities. Camp fire wood was nice and dry at a good price. Vary hilly.

The perfect stop for the start of your Chequamegon National Forest Trip

Bagley Rapids Campground is located in the Lakewood- Laona District of the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest, which is about as far South as the Forest goes. This makes Bagley Rapids Campground the perfect spot for a quick weekend trip from surrounding larger cities. It's roughly 2.5 hours away from Madison and Milwaukee and just over an hour away from the Green Bay area. 

If outdoor recreation is your thing, this is the perfect base camp. The campground entrance is right off the ATV / Snowmobile / Horse Trails which connect to thousands of miles of trail systems all throughout the Northwoods of Wisconsin. I've stayed here 5 times in the last two years and frequent the local logging roads on my Dual Sport motorcycle. I'd say over 1/4 of the spots are actually located on Bagley Rapids, a very clear, crisp refreshing spring fed river that runs around the campground. It's great to wade into and enjoy after a hot day hiking and exploring trails. 

A couple miles from the campground is nearby Mountain, WI where you can get basic groceries, gas and a great bar burger. Within 30 minutes you can be in the smaller town of Wabeno, which is home to some of the best ATV trails around and also has a very cool old style downtown.

The sites are a mix of tent and RV with some really great spots with some elevation that back down into the river. It's always been peaceful during my stays and never gets loud and rowdy.

As there isn't a beach, small children should stay out of the river due to it's strong current, so this might not be the best choice if you're going purely for the water.

Nice campground

Nice campground with a nice beach area and fantastic disc golf course!

Ideal campsite on the Oconto river

I have stayed here a couple of times and it is hands-down my favorite campground.  Many of the sites are right on the river. There are very clean pit toilets and a pump for well water. Other campers have been extremely respectful and friendly. The campsites are wooded and shady, and have plenty of trees that are placed ideally for hammock hanging. My favorite thing about this campsite is that it is right on the water. You can hear the constant rushing of the water over the rapids, which is so relaxing at night. The fire rings have adjustable grills that can be swung away from the fire when you are not cooking. There is a trail that runs along the river and many well-placed trees for hammocking if you like to be DIRECTLY on the river or even hanging over the water.

Wonderful Friendly Experience

The staff was great to work with finding a campsite on a walk-in. The campsite was very clean and read for us to set up our tent. The hiking and lookouts were breath taking
