We didn’t care for this park. Gravel drive but dirt roads. Looks like there was gravel once, a long time ago. Sites are on grass which quickly turns to mud. Sites are laid out in a haphazard manner. The electric hookup had no disconnect so I had plug in/out HOT, which could damage electrical components in the RV. Many of the sites were occupied by workers from around the country who follow the job openings. I talked to several who are good people just trying to get by as best they can. We stopped here to visit the EAA Museum.

The views from the hilltop sites are some of the most beautiful I’ve seen in a campground. Since it is on a hilltop there is a pretty steep climb to the site but it is paved and has a few switchbacks to break up the climb. Be very careful when checking in at the office at the rear of the restaurant as there are some large dips in the parking lot. Large enough to high center some rigs. These are paved dips to try to control water running down off the hill. Grass pull-thru sites are parallel to the drive, which gives the best views but may require a little jockeying to get positioned. Water pressure seemed a little weak. Nothing much near by, town of Wonewoc doesn’t have much to offer, had to drive 12 miles to Reedsburg to find a decent grocery. We didn't try the restaurant, looked at the menu and didn't see anything healthy listed. We stayed here to visit the Wisconsin Dells.

We loved this park! Easy access from the highway, paved drive and hard packed gravel pads. Some sites may require a little jockeying to back in. The grounds are nicely landscaped and neat as a pin, likewise for the bath and laundry. A great paved biking, walk/hiking trail just across the road. The owner informed me that he is planning to add 15 new pull-thru sites in the near future. Wabasha and the Lake Pepin area is great place to visit. Drive the loop around Lake Pepin to explore some of the old river towns along the Mississippi. Many great shops, restaurants’ and the National Eagle Center in Wabasha.

We found this park to be well laid out with many sites on Lake Huron and several pull-thrus just inland. Pull-thrus are large but trees can be a problem, we found it easier to back into our site. Roads are paved but somewhat narrow with fairly tight turns for larger rigs [we have a 40' Class A] but we had no problems. Like most State Parks no water or sewer, but 50 amp at many sites! The dump station is in a odd location requiring a some tight turns or a lap around the campground. A good place to base camp from to explore the Au Sable River and Huron National Forest. The town Harrisville is quaint with a nice marina. Reservations can be made on the Michigan DNR website. We would stay here again.

This a great place to stop for the night. Park access is easy but some fairly tight turns for big rigs to get there, try to avoid the rush hour traffic. Pull into the far south drive of the 'Child Daycare Center' just south of the casino. Park fee is $15 but if you go to the casino and get the free 'Players Club' card you get 2 nights free camping and $5 worth of tokens if you're foolish enough to go gambling. Guests at the park can use the pool and spa in the casino.

Beautiful park, well maintained with friendly owners. Sites are laid out in a free form with no rows which gives the park a casual, park-like feel. Only a few sites on the water but great water access for canoes and kayaks and beautiful sunsets! Swimming is possible but bring your surf shoes as the beach is all rock, not sand.

I agree with the previous reviews. This is a well laid out and maintained campground. Very nice and accommodating owners/staff. Had some issues with low voltage during the record heat wave this fall. The good news is that the electric service will be updated by spring next year and all sites will be 50 amps.

This is a very neat and tidy campground. Beautiful lake front with a beach, boat dock, and water type activities. Super nice owners who couldn't be more accommodating. Mostly seasonals but all are very neat and well kept. A few full hook-up, pull-through sites for those stopping for a night or two. Grass sites with a sandy base so mud puddles are not an issue. We were here in the off season and I suspect it is pretty busy during the summer so make reservations in advance. We will definitely stay here again.

Easy access for big rigs. Long, wide, level sites. Although they advertise 50 amps I didn’t find any when I spot checked, 30/20 amp only. The campground is basically a field with only small saplings for shade, good satellite access though. The gravel drives are now mostly dirt. I suspect it could be very muddy when it rains. I never saw any staff at all, none working, none checking on the campers, nothing. Turtle Lake is a Casino town. I suspect most of the ’campers’ are gambling and are just looking for a cheap place to park their rig. The casino runs a shuttle through the park 24/7 about every 30 minutes. The pool was filthy even though it was only a week till Memorial Day and the start of the high season. I’d use the toilets if I had to, but not the showers. Stop for the night if you have to otherwise just keep diving.

I had reservations about this park after reading some of the negative reviews. We went anyway as it was closest to Stillwater, the target of our trip. We found this park to be very neat and clean with a friendly, knowledgeable staff. Very dog fiendly with an attractive dog walk area. The wifi is weak when you get away from the office, other than that I can’t fault this park for anything. It is not as cheap as the county or state parks which is what I suspect is at the root of the negative comments. The staff riding around in golf carts are workers tending to the many flower beds, not spying on campers. This was our first visit to this park and we will definitely return, by the way, I am not a friend of the owners but I was treated like one!

We have camped here several times in the past at first with a 31' travel trailer and now with a 40' motorhome. The park is an old Boys Camp dating to the 40's and while some of the buildings show their age we find the it quite charming and a pleasant snapshot of what the old northwoods was like. There is a restaurant and bar overlooking the the large, beautiful Lake Tomahawk as well as a large marina with many slips for your own boat as well as a gas dock. Lake Tomahawk is part of the Minocqua chain of lakes. There is a new big rig section which was open but was still under construction we prefer the older sections which are closer to the lake. They also have a RV trailer dealership and service center. The service center has been very helpful to me in dealing with some minor problems and at no charge.

The sites here are very uneven. I used every leveling block I had and had to jump the last foot off our steps. Disinterested staff, poorly maintained park. We didn't even want to look in the bathrooms for fear of what we might find. I will never return. How 'Trailer Life' rated this a 7.5/8/7 I'll never know!
