Second time here. Sites are shorter and sometimes uneven. Bike trail, hiking trails, store, beach, inn, nature center.
Site 191 and 196 share grassy areas.
Pads are paved but narrow. Roads are narrow. Next to airport. We stayed at site 11. It’s a 50 amp. Liked the woods view. Our 41 ft 5th wheel fit with room. They are strict about multiple cars and parking on the grass. Small playground. Too early for the pool to be open. Historic home you can tour as well as a “Mounds” tour. Trails are pretty easy and not too lengthy.
Trails are gorgeous…waterfalls…gorges..truly amazing. Drive to trail heads Campground-not huge-bathrooms nice-roads are tight for big campers. Ours is a 41ft 5th wheel and site 65 was okay. Other sites might have been very difficult to park. Little cell service if you have AT&T. Verizon was okay. Pool. Up the road a few minutes is Grandma Faye’s if you need any last minute things. Straw was put down for wet spots at sites. Sites are around 30s hear the constant running of what I think is a water treatment place. Loop around 65-70 has a water tower in the middle. We will come back again!
There are full hook-up sites and electric. Regular electric sites on the water are beautiful but not sure we could park our 41 ft fifth wheel on a water site. Trails are rugged at times and you can access them through campground. We are here in the fall but the beach looks like a good size. Boat rentals. Cabins look cute. We peeked in one. Double bed with bunks in room. Theres a loft for kids. A/C and heat but not bathroom. Bring a mattress or sleeping bags or you will sleep on wood. I recommend the water cabins. Playgrounds are sprinkled throughout. DNR dont patrol a lot. Quiet campground.
sites have chip gravel, clean sites, clean comfort stations. This is NOT a woodsy campground with waterfalls. read the descriptions. Some sites are full hookup. they planted some trees in the prairie area. Spruce trees In the spruce loop are dyIng from whatever Is killing all spruce trees. Bike trails are paved and good for little ones and families. Waterpark is $5.00 and entertains all ages. Haven’t been to the Wolf Park nearby but planning to go.
Stayed here a year ago. Nice long sites but not very private. Planes sometimes fly overhead. Trails, pool, historical home to visit. Only one vehicle is allowed. Even guests who may be unloadIng wIll be asked to move wIthIn 5 mInutes. Guest parking is quite a walk. Do not park even ONE tire on the grass-they make you move.
If you want woodsy, private sites, don’t come here. Most are grassy and sunny. There are many areas where the sites back up close to each other. 2 rows of full hookup. Plenty of 50 amp and many good tent sites. Beach in the park but not walking distance. Great mooring area for campers. Don’t try to pull-thru in any sites that are back-in. DNR will come around repeatedly and ask you to turn around…after you are already set up. Disc golf, trails, store near the beach, cabin rentals.
You might just step out of your camper and look straight at your neighbors. Starting to think all Jellystones are like this. 5 pools! water slides cost extra. Food prices are reasonable. No bike riding after dark. Lights at playground shut off and they will patrol it. Traffic on road can be heard at the sites near the back.
Water view sites reserve quickly. No full hook-up. Beach within the park. Comfort Stations are fairly clean. 3 playgrounds. some woodsy sites. Visit Pirate’s Cove Marina for supplies, wood, and boat rentals.
