Small park with maybe 20 spaces. Decent width dirt sites with grass. Some big enough for 36' MH with toad on the side. Electric only on site, but 10 (yes 10) bay dump station with water. Lots of shade trees. Easy dirt road. Just a mile from Winnebago visitor center and service center. I would definitely stay here again. Payment strictly on the honor system. We camped at Pammel Park in a Motorhome.

This is a local, county park right by the Winnebago River. There were numerous motor homes and one pop-up staying here at the time. Sites are close, but no one was on either side of us. Level sites with electric. Honor pay, envelope system. Beautiful local park with waterfall, bridge, lake, trails, golf course, playground. We enjoyed the hiking trail and did a lot of drive by sight seeing. We camped at Pammel Park over the weekend waiting for our appointment at CDI LLC. The park was very clean, but the showers and bathrooms need some serious attention. They need a Workamper! We camped at Pammel Park in a Motorhome.

This is a local, county park right by the Winnebago factory. We were the only motor home, the only people period staying here at the time. Sites are close, but no one was there. Level sites with electric. Honor pay, envelope system. Beautiful local park with waterfall, bridge, lake, trails, golf course, playground. We felt a little weird being the only ones there but stayed two nights while we relaxed and toured the Winnebago factory. We camped at Pammel Park in a Motorhome.

I would have given this park a higher rating if they had full hookups. We like this park! It has some trees but is still satellite friendly. It has huge expanses of green grass and overlooks the Winnebago River and a golf course which makes for a very pretty setting. The park is quiet too. Our Verizon worked great with strong LTE. One negative is the mud when it rains. They need to put more gravel on the roads and the parking areas. We had one of the two pull-throughs at the end of the row. Most people don't find these and use the first ones they come to which are back-ins. There is a huge dump station with potable water fill on the way out. There are 20-30-50 amp power pedestals that are shared by two sites each and not all sites have electricity. We will definitely stay here again when in the area. We camped at Pammel Park in a Motorhome.

This is a great place to stay to have Winnebago work done or to see the factory. It's small, quiet, and cheap! There's 50 amp electric, but no other utilities. There are dump stations. No WiFi, but good Verizon signal for tethering. We never saw anybody in charge...just put our money in the slot! I put "yes" for clean bathrooms.....but. They weren't awful but really could have used a good cleaning and some fresh paint. The showers looked like what I remember at camp as a kid. But there was lots of good, hot water and places to hang or put things. Some sites were kind of off-level, and the power boxes are in strange places. There's a golf course across the stream and an adjacent playground. We were very happy there! We camped at Pammel Park in a Motorhome.

Nice enough park to spend time at while waiting for service at Winnebago, or for a few days of fishing, relaxing, biking. The city has been putting new gravel on sites but the sites do need smoothing a bit more. I put "no" for showers/restrooms, but if there had been something between "no" and "yes", I would have chosen that. Shower areas and stools and sinks were clean, but the whole inside of the building needed to be swept of bugs and spider webs. They have 4 spots at the dump station and 4 hoses to fill water. Obviously new in the past year or so. No problem getting some TV stations with antenna. We would stay there again. We camped at Pammel Park in a Motorhome.

This is a very pretty campground with walking/biking trials and a stream. It was quite and although there was only electricity, was more than adequate for a one or two night stay. Very convenient to Winnebago factory/service center. We camped at Pammel Park in a Motorhome.

What a find! Perfect for stopping at the Winnebago Factory Tour. Close to a great grocery store - Bill's Family Foods. We stayed three nights. Verizon card super strong. Wonderful walking paths and golf for those so inclined. We were sad to leave. We camped at Pammel Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a nice and easy place to stay. The Winnebago visitor center is one half mile away. The sites alternate with a short site, then longer site, then short site, and so forth. Some of the sites have trees at the very back, so placing your back wheels at the edge of the gravel site may not be possible. The electric pedestal is shared between two sites. First come can select either 50 amp, or 30 amp. Sites are also first come, first serve, and payment of $15 cash is an envelope honor system. We would stay here again if visiting the area, or Winnebago factory. We camped at Pammel Park in a Motorhome.

Nice, simple campground. Good for one night. Potable water is available at the dump station on the way in. Came here to go to the Winnebago factory which is very close. No restrooms. We camped at Pammel Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We were visiting the Winnebago factory, and this was such a great place to stay, overlooking a river and a golf course, no sewer or water just electric. It was so quiet and peaceful with lots of trees and lots of space around the RV, we would stay here again. We camped at Pammel Park in a Travel Trailer.

Winnebago Service sent us to the rally grounds to overnight. But, there were too many coaches trying to squeeze into too few sites. So, we left that chaos for this peaceful city park. And, we’re so glad we did! Our site was level, shaded and we still got satellite. We met several friendly fellow Winnie owners and really enjoyed the peace and quiet of this lovely park. Too bad we had to get up early to go back to service! The dump station in this park is huge!! We’ll definitely stop here again. We camped at Pammel Park in a Motorhome.

Great place for an overnight or two. At least five dump station/water fill facilities at the entrance. Electric hookups available. Shade trees provide some shade to most sites. Very quiet, overlooks a golf course and stream. Bike trails available and you can walk to the Winnebago tour if you wish. The only fault with the park is that if there was a high demand for sites, it would be crowded, but most campers left an empty site in between occupied ones, and there were still plenty to choose from. We camped at Pammel Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Even tho sites are electric only and there are no restrooms or showers, we give this park an 8 for price-is-right + lovely setting: I'm sitting here watching the golfers and fishermen and the trails are great. Grassy, level sites. And not crowded, either. Only a short distance away from our 7:45 AM (yikes) RV service appointment, too. We camped at Pammel Park in a Motorhome.
