  • Decent set up. Nice that its free. It was not crowded and they updated the archery area since last year. We spent the whole day here and had a blast. Wife, hubby, and son. 
  • Its a small park with one road through it - so more of a weekend getaway. We hiked the short trail on the end of the lake opposite the dam. You can glimpse the water, for about a 150 yards and then it...  more »

  • Campground was good. Had two nice nights there. But in the morning my 10 years old daughter was walking her dog and saw killed deer hung up on a tree right near the road. They were uncovered and had blood on the ground. I teach my kids to love nature and wildlife so it was a big disappointment for all our family. Thank you for reading...
  • Great place. Very clean. Beautiful scenery. Lots to do. Only problem we had was my 3 year old driving his battery powered power wheel in our campsite. A park ranger stopped and threatened to issue a citation to me if that " non licensed motorized vehicle" is not put away for the rest if the weekend. Really?? My kid is 3. It is completely silent. Nice attitude pal.😠😠 Other than that, great place but will continue to leave a bad impression.
  • Great place to camp! We have been here on three separate occasions and it has always been a nice visit. There is plenty to do here like fishing, swimming, hiking, camping, boating, and more. The campsites are very nice and most of them are wooded and somewhat private. The shower building is new and has nice facilities. The lake is nice to explore, I have done fishing and canoeing on the lake and both were great! One thing to note is that if you go around sunset out on the water expect there to be lots of bats flying around. Speaking of the bats there are lots of bat houses around the park, which is very cool to checkout and also cuts down drastically on the amount of mosquitoes. The beach is nice and good for young children. There are also two playground areas. There is a ice cream place on the edge of the east end of the part, but I have never been in it. The south west region of Wisconsin is hillier than a lot of the state and is very beautiful, Yellowstone is a great park to experience that part of Wisconsin. The lake is man made and there is a dam you can explore on the East end of the park.
  • Great park, campsites are large and some are tiered, gun range. Big lake with easy access.
  • Beautiful views! The campground is clean and the rangers come around quite often.
