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!
There is a beach area perfect for kids . Along both sides of the river are some of the best walking trails in the area. The scenery is beautiful such as the natural rock formations. There is also a playground for kids.
This campground is right on the Ice Age Trail and a nice place to stop off during an extended hike.
There are not that many sites available here and most do supply electricity. More people tent camp here rather than RV camping. There are pit toilets but no shower house although there are water spigots for drinking water. The sites are closer together than some campgrounds but it's not like a city block of camps like some KOA's I have camped at. The night time temperatures dipped in the low 30's in the middle of May when I was there. The campground attendants were on site twice a day to sell firewood and collect camping fees. The DNR rangers do patrol the campgrounds on a regular basis. There is places all along the river to fish and I was told the fishing is good, however I did not have very much luck when I was there. The campground firepits with cooking grates were OK and the wooden picnic tables are worn, but there is level ground for pitching tents.
The scenery and hiking along the river and on the Ice Age Trail is great. If you had better luck fishing than I did this would have been a great camping weekend. Bring warm cloths and a great sleeping bag.
The hiking trails are great and go all the way out to the Ice Age trails. It goes along the river. Very scenic. Ran into a bear around Xmas time, during a warm winter!
