This state park was vary nice . The site was a nice size and had a platform for the tent so we didn't flood . Unfortunately it poured and was freezing when we went so we couldn't do much hiking. The bathrooms were clean and also has the weather report over the speakers which was nice . They are vary dog friendly although you can't take your dog up the tower ( prob for safety reasons) . In the summer they also have a small water park there, which for family's is awesome . Definitely will go back 👍
Blue Mounds State Park is a great campground. I love the area all the trees. They have hike in campsites, bike in campsites and regular campsites. They also have a group area. If you are in a tent you will have great luck, I would advise in a trailer or Motor Home to inspect you site closely before you say yest to it, or you may be like us and change it 3 times. Not very many level sites unless you can get up on the tent pad. At one we thought was fairly level our tires were a good 3 inches off the ground in front. We finally found one we could live with. They have limited sites with Electricity so also if you need that look around.
I will have to say that the facilites are really nice and very clean in fact I have never seen a bathroom floor that clean on a weekend.
Speaking of weekends it does fill up most weekends so you will need to make reservations unless you want to use the hike in sites.
They have a recreation are also in the park that has a beautiful pool. Picnic areas that are great and towers you can go up to see the Mounds.
WE have spent 2 times there this summer and will be back next summer.
If you are there there are a few areas to visit.
Mt Horeb the Troll Capital. It is a small town about 20 miles if that. Has a Troll theme and you can see the trolls all over the town. Some good restaurants and one of the weekends we were there was the Art Tour it is in the entire area and had some great art studios you could visit.
Cave of the Mounds is another place you have to visit. This is a great cave during the week they give guided tours on the weekend it is self guided but have docents around explaining everything. Well worth the money and trip. This is about 5 miles from the Park.
I will say no internet and cell phone was very spotty. It is also one of the darkest areas if you are into the stars, just put something on for Mosquitos.
All in all a good solid 4, only down side was we were in a Motor Home and the not level sites was not the best.
Went here for a family vacation! Had an amazing time, close to mount horeb so was able to drive in for a day to look around. Site were spacious and most were pretty concealed.
Easily accessible, very clean and well maintained campground and park. Many sites to chose from for tents. Travel trailers have several sites and Friday most of them rolled in. The trails are well marked and appeal to hikers, mountain biking and winter sports.
Campsites, trails and facilities were immaculate. Staff was friendly. drive in and hike in sites available. great for families; trails have info markers to educate hikers on geology and flora of area. Drive in campsites had fire rings and picnic tables, vault toilets available.
It is a beautiful park with tons of trees. Beautiful hiking trails everywhere for different levels of hiker. The pool is awesome, and the splash pad is absolutely incredible. This is a great place to camp with little kids. The raccoons are a bit gutsier than most, though.
An awesome place to hike especially, but good camping too. Climb up into the firetower if you get a chance too!
This state park has nice wooded campsites, a beautiful variety of hiking trails and a pool to cool off in the summer months. The views from the picnic area are spectacular, especially in the fall!
This campground is great for family and friends. The campground itself has wooded sites. Some larger than others so be sure to watch the site listing on ReserveAmerica to see how deep the site it. It also has bike in / hike in sites.
There are a lot of trails for hiking and mountain biking. A swimming pool and picnic area.
You're also conveniently located near
- a couple other state parks (Governor Dodge / Tower Hill)
- right on the Military Ridge State Trail (gravel / dirt rails to trails)
- attractions (Cave of the Mounds & House on the Rock)
We got the last site available and am so happy we chose this place. Gorgeous hiking with really unique trails. Awesome mountain hiking options.
