The park is about 10 miles off of Hwy 51. You will go through Merrill and watch your speed (mostly 25mph). Definitely a speed-trap town. The park has a very large station for registration/check-in. Staff was friendly. Roads are very narrow with a lot of low hanging limbs. I would not attempt with a large motorhome. The main road in is very narrow with large trees on both sides. Not a good place for two large rigs to meet. Campground sites are dirt/sand with a picnic table and a fire ring. They are somewhat level. Will have difficulty backing large rigs into some sites. Again, watch for low hanging limbs. Electric at site. Water stations scattered around campground. Dump station on the way out. Bathroom/showers are nasty. Showers are very grubby and not sanitary. Looks like they have not been cleaned all summer. There are two showers in men’s side for the entire campground. ATT phone reception is spotty. Verizon is better. Satellite signal practically impossible due to heavy forest cover. Campground is very busy throughout the summer. Almost everyone is local folks and they love to burn wood. Expect LOTS of smoke day and night. The State of Wisconsin requires all vehicles entering state parks to purchase a park pass. For non-residents, it is $10 per day or $35 annually. This fee is NOT included in your camping fee. I will not stay here again.
Rate is Passport America. Nice open RV Park with very nice facilities. Restrooms/bathrooms are first-rate, some of the best I have used. Wonderful tile showers. These areas are very clean. Very friendly folks at check-in. Great first impression. It is obvious the owners care about the park. Sites are paved and level. Utility hookups are very convenient. Satellite reception is no problem. AT&T reception good. Just 1/2 mile off I-20. There is a little road noise from the interstate but it is negligible. I would definitely stay here again.
Very convenient to I-20. Super friendly folks at check-in. Park is well maintained and clean. Showers, bathrooms, and laundry room are some of the cleanest I have seen. Sites are somewhat close together but are laid out in a very easy to navigate format. I would definitely stay here again. Rate reflects Passport America membership.
This is a very big park but it has definitely seen better days. There are lots of long-termers here. Overnighters park in a parking lot with utilities at the back. All sites are back-in for overnighters. Cable and Wi-Fi worked well. Bathhouse could use some upgrading. Doors on stalls would not lock and showers were scummy. This park was once a gem but it is on the decline. Friendly staff at gate check-in. A little slow on processing our check-in. OK for an overnight stop. Convenient to I-20.
Very efficient and friendly check-in process. Large park that is well-maintained. Long-term residents in one section of park but it is clean and maintained. Large, level pull-through sites. Very good cable TV and great Wi-Fi reception at site. Satellite TV and cell service were no problem. Plenty of room to walk your pet. Bathhouses were very clean. Showers were cleaned regularly with bleach. The only negative is the drag strip across the road. We were here on Sunday afternoon and the drag strip was quite noisy but it ended about 6 pm. Overall, great park for the price. Will definitely stay here again.
Park staff is very friendly and professional. Campground has too many RV in such a tight area. Very little room to maneuver a rig. Saw several folks hit posts trying to back rigs in. Any trailer over 30' is problematic. If you check-in in the afternoon, you may have to wait 15 minutes or so while the person before you unhooks their rig. Not possible to stay connected here. I understand that part of camping is burning firewood but folks burned firewood all day and night. Never saw this much wood burned in other campgrounds. Everything inside smelled of wood smoke for days. Lots of unsupervised kids and dogs running around in a small area. Bathhouse was clean. No cellular reception and no over the air TV. Satellite TV did work fine. Would not stay here again.
A big park with lots of RV spaces, but there is very adequate space between each site. Park is off the beaten path and campground is several miles inside the park. Level sites with adequate space to back into. There are some pull-throughs. Very quiet atmosphere. Regular patrols by park personnel. Bathhouses were cleaned regularly. Some sites are heavily treed and some fairly open. We had 3-4 trees, but satellite reception was not a problem. Limited cellular reception. Overall, nice park, friendly staff. Will stay here again.
We stayed at the Gateway Park which is off-base just outside the main gate. All sites have concrete pads with electric/water/sewer at the site. All sites have a grass area, picnic table, and a grill. Cell phone reception (ATT) was great. Satellite TV reception was no problem. Bathrooms and showers are very clean. Laundry is a real plus. This is a great park to stay in prior to heading to/from Canada. After driving from Alaska to the Lower 48, this was a great place to stop and recharge. I will definitely stay here again.
Electric only at site. Water and dump station available, $6 fee to dump. Sites are gravel/grass and somewhat level. Very quiet park that is clean and well maintained. A major road parallels the park but it is surprisingly quiet. There is a train track on the backside of the park but you can barely hear any train noise. No train noise through the night. Lots of large pine trees surround all RV sites but it is possible to get a satellite signal for TV in certain sites. Phone reception is good (AT&T). Bathhouse is OK but could use an upgrade. Also, there is no heat in the bathhouse and the overnight temperature was 35 degrees. I would stay here again.
A very quiet park located in a small valley just off the highway. Very friendly owners. The park has a few long-term residents but everyone was friendly and quiet. The only negative was the bathroom/showers. They were adequate but could use an upgrade. Also, there was no heat in the bathroom/shower building even though the overnight temperature was 38 degrees. The $16 fee was with Passport America discount. I would stay here again.
The park is average at best. Not bad for an overnight stopover, especially with the Passport America rate of $18. If you check-in after hours, you have to go upstairs to the bar and find someone that has a few minutes to process you in. The bar workers were very friendly but the process is a little awkward. The sites are gravel and fairly level. The park has many trees but it was still possible to get a good satellite signal for TV. The biggest negative to this park was the bathroom/shower facilities. They could definitely use a good cleaning. Better yet, they need to be updated. I would stay here again for an overnight stop but nothing more.
I have used this park often in the past while traveling to/from Alaska. The park is now full of long-term residents with few spaces available to overnight travelers (a problem for Alberta and British Columbia travelers). Friendly greeting at check-in. Lots of vehicle noise from residents leaving the area beginning at 4 am. The biggest negative issue is the Wi-Fi. You have access to Wi-Fi at your site but it is SLOW. Upon check-in, I explained that I teach college courses and really needed access to reliable internet service for a couple of hours. It took me over two hours to send/receive three e-mails. This is not an isolated issue. I had similar issues on my visit in April 2012. The positive is the ability to use satellite TV. Due to the poor Wi-Fi and vehicle noise, I will not stay here again.
Office is currently under construction so check-in is at first site (travel trailer). It had recently rained and the park was very muddy with a lot of standing water. The sites and roads could use some more gravel to mitigate the mud. No sewer at site but park host said the dump was next to the restroom/shower house but I could not locate it due to all the on-going construction. Has the potential to be a nice park but it needs some work. I would not stay here again.
Very large park with a lot of long term occupants. Over night sites are at the back of the park and it is a long walk to the restrooms showers. Sites are close but adequate. Hookups are very convenient. The negative is the Wi-Fi. This is my second stop here and connecting to the Wi-Fi is hit and miss. You can connect but not have internet access for hours. When I asked about it at the front office, they basically said "oh well". Don't advertise access if you don't get access. I won't stay here again. Better places with better services for the $$.
Nice RV park off the beaten path. Very quiet. Spaces are roomy with small trees between each site. No problem for large trailers or coaches. There are a few long term occupants but all sites are clean and well maintained. The folks at the front desk were friendly and very helpful. The only negative was the Wi-Fi. You get a coupon for one free hour on a commercial provider and then pay after that. We would stay here again.
The park is run down and needs some serious maintenance attention. The sewer system needs some work. At my site, the sewer water covered the sewer drain cover and smelled badly. The bathroom/shower is filthy. The showers have stains on the floor (looks like urine stains). The laundry room could use a really good cleaning. The worst part of our stay was the very loud noise from the motorcycles and ATVs hill-climbing across the road. None of them seemed to have mufflers and they paraded up and down the hill until at least 9 pm. The motorcycles and ATVs even cut through the park at high speeds several times. The only good thing I can say about this park is the Wi-Fi. It is one of the fastest I have encountered in some time. We will not stay here again.
Large park with mostly long-term oil/gas workers. Park is well maintained. Gravel roads and gravel pads. Pads are pretty level. Convenient hookups including cable TV. Wi-Fi works very well. Friendly folks at check-in. Bathrooms/showers clean and maintained. Plenty of space to walk your dog including a fenced dog run. Would stay here again.
Self check-in. Large park with very level spaces. All connections were conveniently located. Had cement sidewalks and gravel in all RV areas. Numerous long-term occupants, but it was quiet. It did have a significant smell of livestock in the evening, but that is expected. The bathroom/shower was very small and outdated. Only had one Men's toilet/shower and one Women's toilet/shower for the entire park. A park this size definitely needs more to adequately support the number of users. Would stay here again.
Sites are spacious with concrete pads and connections that are conveniently located. Camp hosts are awesome. They are very helpful and friendly. The bathrooms/showers are clean and well maintained. All sites have some shade trees, but satellite connection not a problem. No problem with cellular reception. Would stay here again.
Older park with older facilities. Check-in was friendly and process was quick. Sites are very open with a few trees scattered around. Numerous older trailers scattered around and numerous long-term RV’ers staying here. Park is kept clean. Bathrooms and showers are surprisingly very nice with full-length doors on all showers and stalls. Pretty quiet with a little road noise. No problem with satellite reception and phone reception was good. Good for a short stay. Would stay here again.
First impression was not very good due to an unfriendly person conducting guest check-in. He did not seem to have the right personality to meet/greet guests and it was obvious he did not like this particular job. The RV sites are at an angle to road therefore are much easier to back into. All sites are in sandy soil. We were in site #38. Sites can be tight and affect your ability to use awnings and slideouts. Very private with lots of overhead cover. Depending on the site, you may have great satellite reception or none at all. Bathrooms/showers were older but very clean. Train tracks close by and the train comes through day and night. Phone reception was good but signal was not constant. Will stay here again.
Very friendly staff and check-in was quick and efficient. Paved roads all the way through campground. Sites are at an angle to road therefore are much easier to back into. We stayed here en-route to and from the Keys. Overall, we occupied three different sites. Plenty of width for slide-out and awning. Very private but not too much overhead interference. Bathrooms/showers were older but clean. This park has two washers/dryers which is a great service for travelers. They have a breakfast reception for all park guests every Wednesday morning. Almost every RV'er attended. A great way to meet other travelers. Dump station is on the road out of the park and is convenient. Satellite reception was good as well as phone reception. Will definitely stay here again.
We stayed here three nights while visiting friends in the area. Check-in is difficult because it is hard to navigate through the park while trying to locate the office. Lots of longer term trailers in the park. Looks like 10 or so spots reserved for short-term campers. No one is in the office. You have to call the owner: he tells you how much it costs and you leave the money in a certain location. Never saw anyone associated with the park. Sites were nice with level concrete pads. All hookups are contained in one convenient location. Cable TV is super. Free Wi-Fi is good. Never had any problems with either. Spaces are somewhat close together. Nice area with local law enforcement patrols. We saw them at least 2-3 times daily driving through the park. The three restrooms are nice but the shower curtains were very dirty with mold/mildew growing. However, on the last night here, someone did replace all of them. Overall, probably the best park in the area.
Stayed here one night while driving from Texas to Florida. Park is 2-3 miles from I-10. Check-in was quick and the clerk was very friendly. Adequate space between campers, not elbow-to-elbow like many others. Shaded campsites but open enough to receive satellite signal. Bathrooms are older but were clean. Make sure you keep a flashlight handy if out after dark because there are no street lights. Nice trails for hiking or walking the dog. Overall, very nice stay. We would definitely stop here again.
Nice campground with level, concrete pads. We stayed here six nights visiting family in the area. Bathroom has two showers which is fine for the winter crowds, but would have a hard time handling the volume of campers in the spring/summer. One annoying thing was the camp host had a family member staying with them, and this person would occupy the room adjacent to the washers/dryers most of the day. She would also have her dogs inside the area though dogs are not allowed inside the facilities. The campground was kept very clean and the Outdoor Rec personnel were extremely friendly and helpful.
Price reflects Passport America discount. Everyone here is very friendly and helpful. Bathhouses are very clean. Dog wash and dog run are real pluses for those of us who travel with pets. Not much shade but not uncommon in western Texas. Free Wi-Fi reception was very good. No cable TV but satellite is easily acquired. Overall, a great stay.
Most pads with trees are taken by long-term residents. If you are here for short-term, be prepared to stay in the open spaces and expect a long walk to bathhouse. Make sure your pad has power before completely setting-up. I ended up trying six different sites before I found one with electricity. Self registration can be difficult. The available site list posted on door was 3 days old. Overall, a good value for $20.
A "gem" off the beaten path. Beautiful park on a lake. Quiet and secluded. Surprisingly, we had great cell reception with AT&T. Only four RV's in park when we stayed. Great walking trails. Plenty of trees for summer shade. May have difficulty with satellite reception in summer. OK in winter though.
