This campground is about 5 miles from the Wisconsin Dells right along a very active train line. Although the trains come through every hour or so, after awhile you forget about them until the 12:05 am one! While they say they have sewer, water, electric sites, there are only three available, all the rest are seasonal. So all the rest have to use the dump station for an extra $5.00. Why they don't build the $5 into the daily rate is confusing. Also, they charge $10 for vistors, all vistors, large & small. This campground has had the current owner for 9 years. There have been a couple of improvments made, such as a very nice swimming pool and beverage center (bar) and the paving of the main circle drive. The trees along the main circle have not been trimmed and dragged along the roof and the sides of our motorhome all the way around, I was told that they are going to trim them soon. More work is needed in the bath house. The showers have great pressure and lots of hot water but are old and grimy. Floor is bare concrete and uneven. Sites are all on grass covered stones. We stayed on Memorial Day weekend, the week leading up to it, this area had quite a bit of rain and our sites and most others were soft and muddy. Lots of trees so if you have a satellite you may have to work to get a good signal. We will not go back since there are lots of other campgrounds in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I had to double-check to make sure this was the same park that got 9's in 2009 and 2006. Good grief. $39 for a mud site, bad-tasting water, no Wi-Fi, no cable, no sewer at pull-through sites, $5 dump fee, and an hourly freight train whistle blast from 6:30 am until 10 at night. Trees need trimming for big rig access. Definitely won't stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We just had a very enjoyable stay at this campground. The owners seem to take pride in the grounds and are very friendly. We have 2 labs and they enjoyed themselves while at our site and walking around the campground. A couple of state parks are nearby for trail walking. We saw people fishing in the pond and there is watercraft available for the lake. The pool looked very nice, although we did not use it. The showers had hot water immediately. We plan on definitely camping here again! We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Very nice campground with plenty of shade. Actually the longer we were there the more we liked it. The pool has a nice bar that is open on Friday and Saturday nights, so that was a fun time. Otherwise nothing extravagant, just a overall nice place to spend a couple days. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was the first time we stayed here. It is a small family oriented place. I liked that it was a smaller campground close to the Dells. The other campgrounds in the area are larger and very crowded. The sites here are very large compared to other campgrounds. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The facilities were kept clean. I learned that they had purchased the campground several years ago and it appears they have made many improvements and continue to do so. The latest improvement is the new pool and since it is a smaller campground the pool is less crowded. The one feature that stands out is they were smart enough to build a bar on the pool deck. Great for grandpa when he takes the kids to the pool. We will definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Camped here in 04'. Customer Service is excellent, Owners care about their campers and
make you feel at home and that you are welcome. Great activities for the kids (actually "round up" the kiddos for fun!) Safe enviorment, 10 min ride to downtown dells. Felt like you were in the action but still away enough to relax after a day or night of playing. The only thing lacking was a pool which the owner said is coming in 05'. Lake is swimmable, but we wouldn't go in it, more of a "pond type lake". Extrodinary Clean facilities, store has enough to keep my 10 yr old shopper busy and game room has enough for my teen. Had an extra Moon jump and great park/playground. Some sites are narrow so specify when making your registration what size RV you have. We have a 21' trailer that fit in a "narrow spot" but was big enough to put out awning and was nice and long so it compensated. Does have wider spots, but even with our narrow one we still didn't feel on top of our neighbors because each site has trees to make you feel you are in the woods camping. Wood was cheap if you don't bring enough. Pet friendly, and I stress that their customer service was just outstanding, owners always smiling, waving and always had a nice word to other campers. No golf carts to run you over and quiet time is enforced. Nice family campground near all of the Dells fun! Owner also said mini golf coming in 06'. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Beautiful!! Clean bathrooms. Hot showers. Decent camp store. Big lots. All in a quiet, lovely setting. We arrived after 10 pm exhausted and cranky. The staff came out to meet us and said to grab any spot for the night. There was a large area of spacious pull throughs that we used. The next morning we saw that we were camped by a beautiful river. The staff actually apologized about the "small" sites, but said we looked like we just wanted the first available. I was then given complementary coffee and invited to sit in the spacious common area that contained a big screen TV, comfy couches and exercise equipment. The kids enjoyed the game room, too. We will definitely be back! We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped here in 03. Upon arriving, we were a little put off by the entrance, featuring a dilapidated old building, not very inviting. Very friendly staff person checked us in, and after we were dismayed to see our site, which was right "on top" of the neighbors and completely out in the open like a parking lot, she willingly and politely agreed to switch our site. We picked a nice spot with trees. Turned out that it was actually a seasonal spot, but the person who was supposed to show up, put off their arrival for another week, so she let us take it. Seasonal spots and tent sites are definitely the only nice ones here. Pool was nice and well maintained. We also liked the nearby hiking trails, beautiful. Probably would not go back, but only because we like a "prettier" and more private campsite. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

Great, great campground! After getting screwed at StandRock Campground finished our vacation here. We camped here in a camper.
This place is almost entirely seasonal campers, with the regulars zipping around on golf carts, beer cans in hand, and us "outsiders" crammed in a dusty row and forced to wear wristbands to identify ourselves. And even though River Bay is miles from the off ramp, it's still very near the interstate so there's a lot of highway noise. For us, it was a disappointment and we got a refund for the second night and left early. They were nice about that. There were a lot of seasonal campers, so the park must be doing something right. But for us full-time RVers, it didn't work. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We rented a buddy site that was to provide space for two families at $44/night each; a total of $88/night for the site. The space was entirely too small. With one 32' motorhome, a tent and two vehicles we could barely walk around. Branches were not cut back so we had had to do our own cutting or risk scraping our motorhome. The sites were on top of each other and the entire campground was packed. Lots of young adults, loud radios, horns honking and a raceway close enough that you got to hear the stock car races as if you were there. Additionally, there were young teens racing around on golf carts making the roads treacherous. Lastly, there was karaoke every night at the Tiki bar. Quiet hours are supposed to be at 11:00pm, however they played late every night. In fact, on our last night, a staff member came around to "ask" us if it was OK if they continued until 2:00am, breaking their own quiet hour rule. When we communicated that we had small children and that they would have a hard time sleeping he said, "Well, just come over if it's too loud." It was entirely obvious he didn't really care and wasn't really asking, but rather informing us of his decision to bend the camp rules to benefit him. It was so noisy that we could not talk to each other around the campfire without seriously raising our voices. The campground is mainly seasonal and year round residents. Lots of trailers with built on sun rooms and decks. Pool was clean, showers were marginally clean. Customer service was adequate. They did show us to our site. There is a nice park for the kids. We will not stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park was awful. It's not big rig friendly. Park staff had to come out and cut tree limbs so that we could get out. No TV reception and no cable TV. Tents were parked on top of each other. People walked freely through our campsite. The only good thing was the sunset cruise on Saturday. It lasted well over three hours for a cost of $15.00. We would not come here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have stayed here for the past 3 years. They have 50 amp, big rig sites and are set up for large units. We have a 40' rig and tow a jeep and these sites are great. They are nice and level and easy to get in and out of. We love the heated pool and the clean, clean bathrooms and showers. They even have a family assist room for the handicapped. My father was with us in a wheelchair and the family assist room worked out great for him. One of the highlights of our trip was the scenic sunset cruise on "The Princess Kay" paddlewheel riverboat. We were very surprised to find a beautiful boat like that in Wisconsin. The scenery on the river was breathtaking. They had live music, food and drinks on the cruise. We have taken the trip 3 times! We also enjoy "Bayside Bar & Grill" located right at the campground. The food is excellent and the people are very friendly. The staff go out of their way to make the guests feel welcome and have a great stay. We will continue going to River Bay every year. Each year our group gets larger and they take excellent care of our needs. We camped here in a Motorhome.

This campground has very few sites for travelers. It is primarily a seasonal park and is not convenient to anything. The ownership claimed to have wi-fi, but it did not work. We talked to people in the office, who said they had trouble with the wi-fi and that it rarely worked. No television of any kind. Honey wagon for much of the park and there was a constant sewer smell. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stopped here on our trip from the east coast to Alaska in our 42' motorhome. We were assured that they had a site for us. The first site was one of the new back-in sites. Impossible to maneuver because it was not at an angle and a small tree was planted close to the gravel on one side and a sign post close to the gravel on the other. Directly across the small roadway is another site - okay to use to back-in if no one is there. But if someone is - forget it. Trailer Life may say that they have big rig sites - trust me, they have very few. Those that they do have, "have been reserved for a year". If you have a big rig and want to stay here, make sure they give you a pull-thru. Having said that - they apparently moved some people around so that we could have a pull-through. We were here over the Memorial Day weekend. It was a nightmare. I think we may have crashed someone's party - the music was blaring ALL DAY long. So much so that we either had to leave or keep all of our windows closed. Not our idea of enjoying our vacation. There were children everywhere, some as young as 8 and 9 driving golf carts all over the place. There were a group of campers across from us that literally did not shut up until after 1 a.m. both Saturday and Sunday night. The music stopped at 11pm, but they continued drinking, yelling and feeding a HUGE bonfire until well after midnight. Again forcing us to completely close up the motorhome. We arent old, fuddy-duddies, but if we're going to pay $44 a night for the "privelege of staying on their private property" (taken from their "rules page"), we would have appreciated someone from the campground making sure that EVERYONE in their campground was given the opportunity to enjoy themselves. What a nightmare and what a long weekend this turned out to be. It is a family campground and I'm sure it was a blast for those families that participated in this 3-day party. But it was inconsiderate and rude of the campground owners to let it go on the way it did. Of course, I'm sure these people are regular campers here, as are most of those that were here this weekend, but we will not be back, nor will we recommend it to anyone we know traveling through this area. Dont take your big rig in. There were so many people here, that we felt safer staying in place until Tuesday when everyone left, rather than taking the chance of trying to get our rig out of here through the children, the golf carts, the other rigs and all the tow vehicles. We were here in a 42' motothome with 4 slides. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a clean, family-friendly, rustic park within 10 minutes of Wisconsin Dells attractions. It is suitable for big rigs, but pre-plan your route through the park to avoid getting in tight situations. Sites are spacious and level. The heated pool, kiddie splash pad, playground and mini-golf made it a nice place to bring the grandkids. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Extremely tight sites. I had a drive through and had to thread the needle to fit between the trees. They had a lot of rain and the dirt/sand roads were muddy to the point I was worried about getting stuck while attempting to negotiate the turns. A park model,had fallen partially into a sink hole and stayed there! Nice office and very friendly staff. They were over booked and in a lather over fitting people in. Will not stay here again! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a Passport America campground. Would not stay here again. Our site was between dense tall trees with no sewer hook-up, although they came around and dumped us. We were in a motorhome with a towed car and were barely able to maneuver out the next morning without unhooking the car. The staff was very friendly. There was no wi-fi. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were excited to read the online amenities like Friday night fish fry delivered to your site, and donuts in the morning. We paid in advance for our weekend, and upon arrival, were not happy with the tiny campsites, unmaintained sites, and pay showers. There was a mix-up as to our reserved site, and when that finally was resolved, and we saw the open and crowded conditions of the site, we needed to move again. After deciding to leave and drive to another campground, we were told we had to forfeit our entire payment, even though our receipt clearly stated that one night's deposit would be kept in the event of a cancellation. The pool was dirty, the showers were barely shoulder high, the bathrooms were filthy and the poor customer service was disappointing. We've paid less for fantastic sites at Kilby Lake Campground, and should have gone there. We will not be back to Yukon Trails, ever. We camped here in a Tent.
We just got back from a week-long stay at Yukon Trails. Overall, we had a pretty nice time there. We chose it based on recommendations from friends who had been there before. It is very conveniently located if you plan on visiting attractions in Wisconsin Dells. We have a 3 and a 5 year-old son. Activities for children this age were abundant. They have a large playground with a wide variety of well-maintained equipment. There is a 9-hole mini golf area and swimming pools. During our stay, they had stuffed animal races for the kids. They also had a highly-visible arcade which had the kids begging constantly for quarters. :-( We found the staff to be EXTREMELY friendly and efficient. The place was very clean... The prices for
everything were reasonable. We didn't feel like we were being price-gouged for things like ice and to have the tanks on the trailer emptied. We arrived during the early evening on Friday and set up camp. We were not prepared to cook a meal and were extremely happy to have dinners delivered to our site. The food was very good, hot and reasonably priced. Although a previous reviewer said the tractor was out every night at dinner time pumping sewage, I didn't observe the same thing. Instead, a smaller tractor pulling a train of wagons (The Wilderness Express) took kids on a ride through the woods surrounding the camping area every night at about dinner time. The man driving the tractor (I think his name is Daryl) is also the guy who has the yucky job of emptying tanks. There are a few things we would do differently next time we stay. (Yes, we'll definitely be back...) We stayed in site 11 which is situated near a row of seasonal/permanent sites. This site really did feel like a mobile-home park rather than a campground. In addition, sites 11 and 13 are right next to a vent pipe for what appears to be (and smelled like) a drain field for a septic system. These sites should be avoided by anyone staying here because the frequent odor of sewage was noticed while sitting next to the campfire. It was awful... We would have moved to another site but it would have involved too much work. Now that we are familiar with the campground, we will simply choose from
sites in other areas of the campground. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

This is just an OK place as far as we were concerned. There is really to much shade if that can be a problem. So much dust and dirt since there is no grass. The only area that has grass is down by the small lake. Which is fine except you can't walk there because it was covered with dog waste. You couldn't take a step without stepping in it. What a mess. That was the area for fishing and swimming. There are also tons of trailers and campers that are there on a permanent basis. It sort of had the look of a "trailer park." Each had their own versions of decks, porches, storage facilities and other built-ons. Right at dinner time each evening the management came by on a huge tractor to empty the septic systems: YUCK. We had a problem with a leak at our water connection. Instead of letting us know, the guy announced it to several of the other RVers in the area around us. My husband who was inside at the time heard him YELL: "Here is a problem that I do not like to see, this guy has a leak!" OK, just tell us, it turned out to be something in the faucet and we were
unable to connect to the water. I am sure that after checking out some of the other facilities in the area we will not go back.
We camped here in a Motorhome.

Great campground! We came here after Ski High campground in Portage screwed us over. This place is so nice it spoiled us for all other campgrounds forever. They have a great pool area with a kiddie pool, lots of playgrounds, and activities all the time. Also they have a great lounge area with a small bar, great for watching Packer games! We camped here in a camper.

Close to Wisconsin Dells, our favorite campground near the Dells. This campground has many large size, most are undertall pine trees. Sites near the fishing pond are particularly huge. Lots of fun activities, bakery, fish fry on Friday night - they will even deliver it to your site. Pool for little kids. Good gravel roads, safe for kids to bike on. Some seasonals, mostly in separate area. Can hear highway at night only very faintly - not enough to be a problem. We camped here in a camper.
