Home base but nothing more

It was quiet and a good home base.

The pool was dirty and my daughter got a chlorine rash from it. They also recently caulked the pool and it was washing off into the pool. Other kids had caulk on theur faces. There are only 2-3 chairs around the pool so bring your own.

We stayed in a medium cabin which was perfect for us. Clean but the decks needed some TLC as they had a lot of peeling paint.

They had a playground but bigger kids hung out on it the majority of the time and would not move when we asked them to so our kids could use the slide.

Beautiful views and peaceful camping!

Beautiful, spacious, and quiet camping and state park. The hiking is awesome! We hiked the Bluff Trail which has lots of hills and steepness, skinny trail with some drop offs but it was fun! My daughter was a little nervous during the hike but I felt safe so nothing to worry about. Just take your time.

The lady at the snack shack was so helpful and friendly as well. You can ask for a volleyball, basketball or tennis rackets at the shack as well as buy firewood and souvenirs.

Our site was peaceful but next time we are getting a site in the ridge campground because those scenic views are amazing!

Great Location

This campground fills up fast due to how close it is to the Dells so plan ahead. Also, the spots seem to be mostly seasonal spots so that makes it harder to get in as well.

Close to Dells strip, has a great spot to swim with big inflatables for kids to climb on.

The site was nice, a pull through but not part of their newer sites that are all paved so it's closer to the pool. Kids had a blast here and we already booked to go again this year! Helps that we know someone me who has a seasonal spot.

Very Quiet and Serene

Very quiet and private sites. Lots of hiking that you can walk to from campground. I really liked going into the tower to see the views.

We went later in the year and the ice cream shop was closed. Not a whole lot to do nearby but that's ok for a quick nature escape!

We also went to the Cave of the Mounds and the kids still talk about that to this day. They had a lot of fun!

Scenic Hikes, Quiet Camping

I really enjoyed our stay here. We booked the month before we went so spots were limited and we were stuck in group camping which is very open. I prefer state parks because usually every site is surrounded by trees and feels like you are alone in the woods. That was my fault for booking so late in the season. I was impressed at how quiet the camping was being in the more open, communal, group camping!

The trees were turning colors and the hiking was beautiful. It's very busy on the hikes here being so close to the Dells so I would encourage early hikes!

Big Sites but Close to a Busier Road

It was nice and I really liked how large the campsites were. Kids had a place to run around and I didn't feel like they were encroaching on other people's sites. We were up against the forest and they could play in there too.

Beyond the little forest was a busy road which kept my husband up. He didn't feel it was very safe and that anyone could walk into our site from the road. No one did but that thought kept him up.

We bought wood from their store and had to use a lot to get a good fire going. It was protected wood and didnt feel damp but it was not catching very well.

We enjoyed the hiking in this park but had to drive to it. Keep that in mind if you've got little kids.

Get A Water View Site!

We went here in 2020 so the amenities were closed and I cannot review that.

The road to get to our water view site (69) was narrow and tricky with the camper but it was worth it for that peaceful view!

There was one night where a bunch of rowdy folks camped and threw their beer cans and trash in the river. We kept seeing it float by. I wasn't a fan of that but they left the next day so most nights were peaceful, calm and you could hear the river.
