Really nice, super clean, campground, set in the heart of the national forest. Huge spaces. This campground/lodge is situated on the shores of lake Winnebigosh and Cutfoot Sioux. The staff here is terrific, they cant seem to do enough for you. The only drawback is no restaurant or bar, which would be kind of nice because you are set about 20 miles from the nearest town. Also, there are not many sites here so be sure to call ahead to check availability. The campground also has a great marina for parking your boat, or renting boats/watercraft from them.
We stayed for a short time in this park and I can guarantee you we will not be back. The sites are cramped, the park is not well kept, and the camp "HOST" is about as unfriendly. We moved on to the Ashland City Park and were very pleased with the change in location. The parks dept in Washburn should seriously take a closer look at the folks who "Host" their campground.
This is a great park in the heart of Ashland. Some of the other reviews I read were not very positive and I'm not sure why. The sites were some of the largest we've ever experienced, most other RV parks would cram two campers in the sites, this park reserved for just one. The trees weren't large, but they are growing. The grounds were very well kept and the park sits right on Superior with a fabulous bike trail that goes for miles around the lake--wish we would have had our bikes! Also, if you are a fishing person, there is a really nice boat ramp adjacent to the park. It's a great location for checking out Bayfield and the rest of the area. We would definitely go out of our way to camp here again.
This is a nice campground, but many of the sites are very difficult to negotiate if you have a big rig. We have a 36' 5th wheel and my husband is a really good driver (x-semi guy). He had a tough time. If you have a large rig, the only sites that will work for you are 12, 14,19, 20, and 21. The road in is very narrow, so that makes maneuvering even more difficult. Other than that, if you are not into hiking, this park has little else to offer. You are 1.5 hours from Ely and a fair distance from Lutsen and Two Harbors.
Other reviews of this park are accurate. This is a very clean park, very close to Deadwood. However, they are in the business of getting as many campers in this space as possible. If you understand this going in, you wont be surprised. If you are in the Deadwood area and want to enjoy the town (not the camping experience) this is the place to go.
First, it would be nice if the state of WY would update their campground information. The web page for this park says water is unavailable. In fact, water and electric are both very available. Second, it would be helpful if the state of WY would include a campsite map on their webpage showing the location and size of the campsites. Third, this reservoir had a terrible fire in June of this year so almost all of the trees are burnt. Lastly, the reservoir has been drained. All that said, I would go back but first I'd ask if there is water in the reservoir and I might wait a year or two for the vegetation to grow back.
