Dependable and friendly

When you're traveling, it can be exciting not knowing what to expect around the next corner, but in most places, there's a McDonald's, a Walmart or a KOA, and ya know everything is going to be ok.

Beautiful site on the water.

Quiet little campground, I was in one of the three canoe/ walk in sights and they were right on the water. All three sights were separated from the rest of camp and are tent sites. All have a picnic table, grill, and fire ring and are big enough for 2-3 tents depending on the size of the tents. Set back from a county hwy and state hwy, however not too much traffic and the traffic that does exist was not very disruptive. 2 night minimum, 14 night maximum reservation.

Good grounds

Good grounds but there was no water to get and like one other no lights in bathroom. The electric did not work on our site they were very helpful and getting us a different one I would go back again

Wonderful! We will be back.

Great spot to ride bikes or kayak. Clean & green. Loved our stay there!

Decent

It's a decent spot

Quiet and clean

The sites were well spaced and well sized. The sites on the river were really pretty but full of mosquitos. The sites on the other side are also nice and have a much smaller bug presence. There’s a little trail along the river you can walk on which is nice. This seems like an ideal spot if you’re looking to have a peaceful trip down the river. It was also nice for us just looking to relax in a quiet lovely area.

Nice camping area

The camp site was right up against a swamp area so it was kind of buggy, but it was a beautiful area with access to lots of hiking trails and fishing. The vault toilets were well maintained. It was a great experience!!

Great campground in central Wisconsin

We've been going here for the last couple of years and Vista Royalle is a highlight for the family.

They have a man-made sandy pond with lots of inflatables and kayaks on it. Also a Pavillion and "octo-ball" court. The main sites are in planted pine trees which is nice as it gives you some separation from neighbors. There are also group sites too that are really well placed. At the edge of the campgrounds is a fishing pond which is also a great ace to take dogs if you have any.

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.

Nice campground

Nice campground with tent sites on the lake. Right on the 4 wheeler trail.

Great Sites!

Great sites, very roomie, tons of stuff for the kids to do. Campground has many theme weekends, which is fun for all. I would give 5 stars if it weren't for the speeding reckless driving of all the under age kids on the golf carts. Sometimes even the older kids drove recklessly, you always had to be on your toes especially as it neared the evening hours. Golf cart rules are not enforced as well as the noise into wee hours of the morning. Lots of partying, loud music, and screaming at 1-2 o clock in the morning. Other then those couple of complaints it is a very nice campground.

Average

Kind of crowed, clean, no lights in restrooms or sanitizer.

Great hike

Awesome park that started my obsession with wi state parks

Quiet rustic site right on the river

We were able to reserve site 120, right on the river.  It was a lovely site with a nice view, but little shade.  The sunsets were amazing here.  This campground is small and quiet, with minimal amenities.  The vault toilets were clean.  We saw some interesting wildlife too.  We purchased firewood on site, it was a bit wet and challenging to get started.  The ranger was super friendly on check-in.

Great little river camp ground

Great little campground on the river. I just spent one night but there are many hiking paths. The rain of the spring this year supposed mosquito proliferation but they seemed less during the day.

Enjoyable overnight.

Spent one night here the spring of 2019. This was a rainy spring and as a result of the standing water the mosquitoes were abundant. But they died down during the day and there are plenty of hiking trails that run away and along the river. The whole Midwest is full of mosquitoes this spring but this is a great park and campground that is nicely secluded and small.

This is a wonderful hiking park.

This is a wonderful park for hiking or a walk in the park. Beautifully taken care of but there are no overnight sites for camping or RV. But enjoy a hike close to Wausau.

Great

Nice options to tent at and nice to walk around and do things

Awesome place

The canoe camping site is cheaper and much more secluded with view of the lake. Great experience.

worth it for the scenery

Only stayed for one night cuz I've been dying to check out the Dells of the Eau Claire and boy was it worth it! After exploring the extended area we found another campground we liked better ;)  (There are a few other campgrounds in the area as well that might have more modern conveniences.)  The campsites are average, nothing fancy, but totally worth it to be able to rest after a day exploring this awesome park!  Good place to have a fire and relax- not many people were in the campground this night so it was quiet. 

This park connects to the Ice Age trail I learned from fellow campers.  I LOVED the hiking trail along the river.  Went in the water which was a bit chilly but refreshing on a warm autumn day!  The rock formations/cliffs and waterfalls were truly amazing. People like to jump off the cliffs on a warm day- fun to watch!  Lots of exploring to do here- definitely could spend a whole weekend checking out the park!

secluded canoe-in/walk-in site

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 :)

Camping in the woods along the Wisconsin River

On the Wisconsin River, there are four “loops” of campsites, with some on the river side of the road and some off the river. The main RV loop looked crowded, but it is also where the very clean bathhouse is located. There are restrooms on the other three loops, but they are not as updated as the main bathrooms and bathhouse in the RV loop. Most of the tents were put on the sites around the ballfield which is across the street from the river. The good thing about that is that the dust from the ballfield seemed to keep the deer flies at bay, which was not the case on the riverside sites. It’s a good thing the road is not too busy as you have to walk along the side of the road to get to the shower house from the other camp loops. There is a nice dock that is a good spot to watch the sun set over the river if you can stand the bugs.

Nice wooded campground

Stayed here one night while driving home from Lake Superior. I found this to be a pricey evening as you have to pay for a day use fee as well as a camping fee. But, it was all in all a nice campground. The shower house was clean, the campsites were wooded and well spaced out, and there were a couple of trails that went from the campground to the beach, boat ramps, or in the opposite direction, just nice walking/hiking trails. There seemed to be plenty of spots along the Wisconsin River or on Alexander Lake to fish if that’s your thing and you have a license. You can buy firewood up front at the ranger station. The park road went behind my campsite between me and the river, but it wasn’t too noisy as it was set back about 100 yards from the campground and there were plenty of trees to break the noise.

Otter Lake Chippewa County Parks

If your looking for a quiet, remote, good fishing camp Otter Lake is the right choice. Beautiful day park for scenic views for a picnic. Private camp sites. Some have private docks. Excellent fishing for Panfish, Bass, and Walleyes.

The little Big county park

Little BIG county park with tons of great things to do for the adventurer in you!!!

Good little camping trip!

This camp ground was super great! The camp sites are close together though. The bathrooms were sooo clean and actually had a solar light which was great at night. Our site backed up to the river so it was perfect for kayaking and just playing in the water. The campsite is close to lots of hiking trails too!

Great getaway

I love this campgrounds. Big mature forest with water access, boat launches, swimming, fishing. Camping sites are very nice and level w majority elec. Wood available for fires an reasonable. Trails for hiking and lots of wildlife. Kids will love it. We stayed from Sunday thru Wednesday. Very quiet and clean. This is a County Park. The best for the price.

Great Site

I lived near here growing up. We would bike there, and around the whole thing, and back home. It has a nice beach, and boat launch area. Campers and Tents can camp there. There are all the hookups you need. My Aunt and Uncle had a nice camper they would stay there a week, and we'd come visit and sit by the fire. You can kayak down the river past the dam to and avoid the other boating area. That's where all the motor boats go. Great family area.

County park with camping

This a small county park in Portage County, camping was $14 per night and was not full. There was shelters, playground and a lake to swim. But the trail to the lake was down a hill, either by stairs or another route. After having fun on the beach, you got to remember you have to go back up that hill with all your beach stuff. Sleeping at night, better hope you use to noise! Highway 10 and the train runs right near this park, so not quiet at night.
