This campground was OK. The good: office staff very friendly and helpful, many sites in the front are HUGE, you can fit 3 RVs on one site, nice clean fishing lake stocked with lots of bass and trout, large 4 person paddle boats for $4/hour, many activities on weekends for kids and gun shooting range, very nice 18 hole mini putt course for $4, and small store stocked with basic items. The bad: this camp is way far off the beaten path, the campground is next to the base so open to public but it's a long drive to get to the main gate with small exchange and commissary. The camp ground has a lot of plants that have a small burr with spikes that's everywhere and very painful to step on, we had these tiny spiky burrs all over our outdoor carpet and there very hard to get out and kids couldn't play much outside. To fish the lake you need WI fishing license and base license you can buy at campground. This place was fun for a family weekend getaway and very peaceful during the week but again, it's in the middle of nowhere, closest town with food, Walmart is 30 min drive.

We stayed at site 90. I finished AT and stayed up while my wife and daughter came up to camp as a family. My daughter is 23 so we really didn't use the local kids geared activities. Our site was very secluded and quiet for most of our time. It didn't have water or sewer but it had a power hookup. All we really wanted to do was have a fire, drink beer, see Wisconsin, and be in the woods. Our site was perfect for that. I'm glad we got the site we did because a lot of the other sites were right on top of each other and there was were a ton of children doing loud kid stuff. If you want quiet you need to look at the map and pick something off to the side. Also, because of the 4th of July holiday the place filled up by the 3rd and was extremely noisy. We actually took off on the 4th because it got so crowded and loud. I can't ding them for that though. It's a campground during a major camping celebration during prime camping time. They're all loud. I really liked their wood delivery service. Very civilized. They had a small camp store where you could get some of the basics like ice, bait, candy bars and a few varieties of beer. They were very busy but nice, polite and efficient. It looked like there's about a million things for kids to do. Again, we didn't actually use those resources but it looked like smaller kids would have a good time. My only gripe was the showers had the push buttons. I wish they were set to 2 minutes instead of 30 seconds. We all had to get into a rhythm for hitting the button that was akin to juggling while soaped up. Also, the showers were getting a little dirty once the place filled up. All in all I'd go back but I'd skip a major holiday and I'd be very careful to pick a secluded spot.

There are lots of activities planned by the park and lots to do there. We did not stay long enough to participate. Weekday rates are fine but weekends are very expensive. Lots of gnats, mosquitoes, and ticks. The area it beautiful and quiet. The facilities are clean. We would stay there again during the week if we were passing through but would not go out of our way to go there.

R.L. left this review using the Directory software: - We were just passing through and wanted to check it out. Maybe if you want to make a vacation out of it and use the facilities it would be a better deal. Our site was adequate, decent access, but weeds and brush really need to be cut. Would not stay again.
When we were making plans for a trip I tried to make reservations and when I asked about the Golden Age pass I was told that it is honored, but, they only give $1.00 off. We decided to stay at a Army Corp of Engineer campground not to far away that gives 50%. So much for supporting the senior citizens that gave years of service to the USA.
We stayed on a Saturday and paid $40 for 1 night on our trip west. They did not mention or try to charge us a 2 night minimum as stated above. TV service is Cable only so bring a long coax cable. We received over 75 channels, reception was better with a booster connected. There was NO local TV reception. Virgin MiFi 2200 internet worked well at this site. The site is sort of out in the middle of no where so bring a lot of supplies. Limited beer and a few snacks are available at the site. The site seemed to have alot of non military, I stood at attention for revile and it seemed like I was the only one. We did not use any of the recreation mentioned above.

The BEST military campground that we have stayed at so far! The only thing missing was WIFI, 82 cable channels though. The staff sponsored daily events for the campers. There is miniature golf, shuffle board, plenty of biking trails and a swimming hole. This camp ground is open to the public and not on the main installation. We are all for this...more revenue for improvements! Commissary was small but well stocked. The REC Center appears brand new and has pool tables, video and a daily buffet. The local area is just "wholesome America"! People are very friendly and helpful. PRO-MILITARY. We will be back!!!

We visited in the off season. The daily rate was $14 and since we were here over the weekend we got a free day, total cost for 5 nights was $56. Staff was very friendly and helpful and provided information about the area. They have a lot of sites, very large and asphalt pads with fire rings. You can request a site in the trees or in the open area. They have a swimming beach with slides, paddle boats, canoes and miniature golf at the office. I know people are upset with Civilians using this facility but where they are located there are not of military around other than Ft McCoy so without some other way to raise revenue the facility might not stay open. Maybe out timing was good but we found this campground outstanding and would definitely come back again.

WAY to expensive, Civilians with no connection to the military are allowed to use up all the equipment. The staff is great but how can they justify the price? Go to Great Lakes it is much better and much cheaper, you just need to move to get water in and out.

i made a reservation for 2 days(friday and saturday),it was 78.00 and that was including golden age pass.i starting to think about that price and decided to cancel.i was told i could have a rain date but not a refund to my credit card.i was quite upset and express so to several people.i finally got my refund,taking a hill was easier.a campground in sparta was 33.00 and the county campground in la crosse is 23.00.my point to this story is all military personnel should boycott this base.i sent 2 e-mail to the base commander.lets flood the commander with our complaints.

The staff at Pine View were very helpful. The commissary and PX were limited on the overall different types of items, because they are not very big. The base seemed very well maintained and clean. The only real negative comments are, 1. If you are not used to getting wakened up by the base loudspeaker system with horn blowing I would suggest that you try circle 3 since that is away from the loud speakers., 2. They have no WIFI on the post at all. I had to go to Sparta and use it in one of the restaurants.

This is a nice campground but I will never stay here because of the cost and the preference to civilians. I travel more of the country now and a lot of people talk about this campground and these issues. You might as well just put a KOA sign up and leave it. I was just on the coast of CA on the ocean. $21.00 a day. Apples to oranges.

Were do I begin, 1st we reserve our reservation a year ago for 10 days and had to pay for it up front, (expensive). We arrive on the day only to be told they had us schedule for 3 days and some one else had the site on the water. After I protest and show them the receipt did they allow us to set up. Okay, then the civilian's move in and took over the place. They had us sign a paper agreeing to follow the rules, yet everyone was loud after 10pm, kids riding bikes all over and into people plus fireworks at all hours. Drunks everywhere, Vehicles flying through the campground not obeying the speed. Bathrooms were only clean once in the week we were there. They were filthy and ran out of toilet paper. When my wife went to tell them,they made a face like we were bothering them. We been coming to Ft. McCoy for over 25 years but this will be our last. The breaking point, units were having there unit parties before leaving. Four soldiers stop by when they saw my license plate to talk. They inform me that they could not rent equipment because the civilians had everything rented. I guess making money is more important to Pine View then the welfare of our TROOPS. MWR get your act together. We won't be back!! A 1SG

G.R. left this review using the Directory Software: We liked the RV Park. We don't use the shuffleboard courts, but the mini-golf was nice. There are paddle boats and canoes available also but we didn't use them. There was a fairly good population of mosquitoes in the area we were which was near the pond.
