We went rafting on the Wolf River and decided to camp at Boulder Lake. It was Memorial Day weekend and rainy, so there wasn't a lot of people camping. We drove around and picked out an amazing site, then reserved it on the spot. We were right on the lake and woke up to a cool view. Also woke up to someone snoring, and some loud ducks and frogs, but it was all good. lol Toilets and showers were clean, camp host was friendly. We drove quite a ways for firewood, but later found out we could've bought it someplace closer.
We chose this campground on a whim since we wanted to be near Lakewood where I would spend summers as a kid. We love this place and ended up choosing it for both of our camping trips last summer. We in fact got the same exact site and it’s our favorite anyway. This campground is pet friendly- We took our bulldog camping with us. We checked out the beach and it was very accessible. The showers , Bathrooms and Vault Toilets were all clean. We did enjoy the hiking on the campground but there were some parts that were a little overgrown. Overall we love this place and it’s our go to!
Nice campground with electric at some sites and showers! Lake is a good size and beach is very nice. Personally prefer the lake sites, most have sandy beach like areas right by campsite then!! Reservations can be made, which is always nice!!
Big, beautiful Lake. Friendly campground hosts. Nearby towns. Nearby firewood. One of my favorite places to camp.
