They will nickle and dime you to death - $5 and $10 at a time. Their web site implies they charge extra for electricity for their monthly rate only, inferring that electric is included for nightly and weekly rates. They put us on a non-sewer site. Charged us sewer site rates with free weekly pump out. Then only pumped out about 1/2 or less of our gray water (verified by shower backing up after only 2 low water usage showers), and tried to charge us $15 pump out on top of it. This nonsense is on top of already high rates, which they get away with because they are the only game in town. As it is on a river it gets extra soggy when it rains. Don't forget mosquito repellent. Try another park. We camped at Fox River Recreation in a Fifth Wheel.

Date of Stay: June, 2014 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

We paid $42/night, which was reflected in the weekly rate. The park is primarily occupied by seasonals who are here for the access to the Fox River Basin. There is a boat ramp for those with boats. We were in a 40' motor home that requires 13' overhead clearance. The staff had to hold up low slung wires and trim tree branches for us, which they did willingly. Mosquitoes were horrible and prevented us from being outdoors. The sewer system is gray water only and is marginal for that. Pumping service for black tanks is available one time per week. The site we had reserved and paid for in advance was given to a seasonal who arrived ahead of us. You may lose your site if they get a better deal. That being said, we had a long, solid gravel, level site that accommodated our rig, our towed vehicle, and our motorcycle. This park met our needs for a week visiting family in the area. We camped at Fox River Recreation in a Motorhome.
