I am active duty and stayed here for two weeks and our bill averaged out to about $33 a night. I was in the first circle (lot 20). My lot was paved and level with full hook-ups. I had 30/50A service, water, cable TV with over 60 channels, and sewage. Our water hookup started leaking about a week into our stay and they came right out and fixed it. The campgrounds is very nice. They have a lot of things for the family to do. Shuffle board, miniature golf, beach, fishing, boating, biking, and hiking. The laundry room was somewhat lacking, it only had two washers and two dryers. It cost $1.25 to wash and $1.25 to dry. The restrooms were clean and in good repair. I worked the entire two weeks I was there and it was convenient for me because there is a gate (gate 123) right outside the campgrounds. If you go to the provost marshals office, you can register your ID to be able to use the gate (it is automatic, hold your ID up to it, and the gate opens). The campgrounds was empty most of the time we were there except during the weekends. It would start to fill up on Thursday night and by Friday night it was full. Overall, I thought this was an awesome campground and even if I would have had to pay $50 a night, for the full hookups, it is worth it compared to similar civilian facilities.
What a gem! Hidden in the woods way at the end of the base this campground has everything. Water sports, putt-putt golf, nice new camp store, paved sites, full-hookup with cable and many many channels. You can't go wrong spending a few days here. Make sure you go to the cheese shop back at the interstate. Wonderful selection!
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!!!
R.E. left this review using the Directory software: Called prior to arrival and was assured that there would be spaces available. On arrival was greeted and while wife filled out information for camp site, I was able to receive LPG servicing. The campsite was fantastic and the camp had numerous activities to partake of. Pet friendly and child friendly. Lots of activities to keep you entertained and busy. Small store with some supplies and unfortunately there was no WiFi. Would definitely visit again.
This is my answer back from the Park Manager about reservations:
CUSTOMER COMMENTS: A little hard to get reservations at times. Special consideration for military families should be given. REPLY: Thank you for addressing your concern referencing reservations. We do have 10 sites reserved for Military Only for every weekend. We also do an earlier reservation policy just for military - December 26, 2007 you can make 2009 reservations, everyone else cannot make a reservation until January 2, 2008. As the Outdoor Recreation Director, I appreciate the feedback concerning our reservation system. Thank you for your comments. Pamela Budda 608-388-6461 800-531-4703
We stayed in the cabins on the lake during the winter, snowed overnight. It was beautiful on the pine trees. Campground has paved roads and was well equipped. Take a look at the web site for current pictures. This campground is a excellent stopover point for anyone heading west (interstate 90 and 94 separate here) staying at the Wisconsin Dells, or heading to Mall of America.
