Price was a bit high, but after you're inside ... maybe not. Spacious, private sites for most, shady well kept grounds. Horse back riding available. We opted for the FHU, but for $35 you can get elec/wtr and a free dump. In heavy rains you may not want to enter. Dirt road and dirt sites, but level and grass-sided. Long dirt entry road that gets pretty narrow if you meet an opposing unit. But it's doable. Would like to return when we have more time. - Nevada Nick

Stayed here on July 1 - we just needed a 1 night stop on our way to UP Michigan. Most places required a 2-night minimum, but this park did not. Glad we stayed here. The horse corral was beautiful. The road into the park is around 0.75 miles of sand/gravel combo, so if you aren't comfortable with that driving surface then proceed with caution. The sites were level, shady, and spacious. Park wasn't crowded, even near July 4th, and several sites appeared to have seasonal occupants. We were very happy with this park, and wished we had more than one night here. Horseback riding is available as well. Showers and bathrooms were very clean, and the owner was very helpful and pleasant. Dump station was clean and easily accessible. - Kentucky Campers

We spent a weekend here. We thoroughly enjoyed it and will absolutely return! Large sites have a park-like look to them. Some more private than others, but they are all very large. Owner delivers your wood to your campsite! Nice play area if you have little people along with you. You can take an hour ride and then have him cook you a steak that is done to perfection! Clean showers and restrooms as well. The group fire pit is a great place to hear stories from the owner and the his seasonal guests. Had a great time! Definitely a good find! - sssccckkk1952

Very nice park...quiet even when the park was full.Staff was helpful and professional. Bathrooms and showers very clean.Sites were large .No water but has electric. Only downside for some is there is a active train tracks near by,and a busy highway.For us no problem. We camped in our 5th wheel.And plan to make this park one of our favorites. - Msneuby

We spent a weekend at Lake Emily County Park in October of 2016. The restrooms were clean and the campground is well maintained.
The location is great Very close to Stevens Point, Amherst Junction and Amherst.
The only downside is that the campground is near a busy freight train rail line and a four lane highway. If you stay here expect noise from each. - Jim Kruzitski

We stay here when we are going to the agility trials at Camp Bandy. We never have had any problems with the sites, bathrooms are clean and we have always had hot water. Sites are big/roomy. People are friendly. Although no water hook ups there is water available to fill up your water tank and there is a dump station. We will be staying here again. - myztique

33/night for 50 amp, no water, no sewer; plus 9.95 transaction fee. Our first site (69), although advertised as long enough for our 42' fifth wheel, was impossible to get into. The site had trees on either side of the site opening, as well as trees on the opposite side of the road. We could not make the back-in turn to get into the site. As it was late at night, we had to find a place to huddle down for the night until we could talk to the rangers the next day. They were very helpful and put us into site 87, which allowed for us to back in.
The interior road was narrow and lined with trees that went up to and even extended over the pavement at times. We did manage to get through the interior roads, but would not choose to go through them again if we didn't have to. The sites are very private, with trees in between sites. The park was beautiful and quiet. $33/night for electric only is a bit steep in my opinion. If you have a big rig, definitely call the ranger station to get advice on which site to reserve. The website is not detailed enough to take into account the large amount of trees that will hamper the back in. - RVerFamily

Overall a very nice park. I highly recommend this place. Campsites are huge and private. The swimming lake is great as well as fishing and biking trails. - Jroget

Fountain Lake RV Park is a membership lease ownership park near Almond Wisconsin. We had the advantage of following our friends who owned the lot to their park so they knew the best way, including a great truck stop for a break.
Although we were able to navigate the narrow roads, I really wouldn't call it big rig friendly. Following them helped here too as they knew to tell us to swing wide and what to avoid during and after the turns. The roads were gravel as was our site with a concrete patio. The hookups were convenient and we had a great line of sight for our roof mounted satellite dish. - Bob & Jo

This is a gem located in the countryside between Waupaca and Almond. Very quiet, peaceful and beautifully landscaped park. This is more suited to adults as its summer residents are mostly retired and live here in the summer. - good life

We happened to stay with our local camp group during the park's Veterans Weekend for free. We were warmly greeted and efficiently checked-in. Our campsite was located in a large grassy, open area typically used by groups. Each site had 30/50A electric and a water hookup. Electric was stable and water pressure 45+. Site width was generous and you didn't feel you were camping on top of your neighbor. Wi-Fi was available but a bit finicky to connect to. Once connected it was reliable. A dump station is conveniently located for use on departure. The rest of the campground is mixed into the pine forest. The park is family friendly with a huge pond for swim and play, a rec room and a nice little ice-cream store. Prior comments about golf carts are true and it gets a bit dusty when the wind blows in your direction. It was unusual the park allowed youngsters to drive the carts around at night without any lights. At any rate, the open camping area worked great for our group and we'd come back again. - Born2Roam

This is NOT a park for transients or for a weekend outing. Most of the spaces are "seasonal" or "permanent" (they are purchased and used by part-time residents). We were lucky to be able to reserve a site that was isolated and had a great amount of space, but we got to listen to the seasonal residents having their patio/garden parties each evening.
Golf carts abound in this park, and many are driven by children or teenagers. Each evening there is a "parade of carts" with residents continuously driving around the facility with wine glass or bottle or glass in one hand while driving (usually faster than the posted 10 MPH limit AND ignoring one-way streets) until after the sun sets.
Teenage staff at the office and around the facility; never once saw any sign of adult supervision of the sites or streets.
Don't consider a stopover or a weekend here. - grandflic

The positive first: - Very beautiful site, we had #127 in a corner with beautiful trees surrounding a porch deck and further down a fire pit area in the grass. So two levels and very private. Quiet and very little traffic. Pool clean and looked new. Store open with a decent selection of products. Very nice owners, helped us with packages and letters. Toilets clean. Power stable.10 minute ride to Waupaca. Very good Verizon coverage. Extremely beautiful area and campground. Not a field but wooded small hills. Pool was in the mid eighties when we were there. Then the negative: - Absolutely no Wi-Fi so we had to spend 100 dollars to Verizon for the three weeks. Parking is hard since sites are pretty small. We parked under a pine tree that dropped some sap, to be expected but a thought, you have to be on your toes to navigate a big rig through. So to summarize, a hidden gem in Wisconsin in a very beautiful area and with caring and friendly owners on location that helps you with whatever you ask for. Try it out! We planned to stay a week but extended it to three. However our only wish for the future is Wi-Fi. Today as important as water and electricity for us fulltimers. - BasilFawlty

The owner's are a tad strict, nice but strict on some stuff. The pool was heated and was nice. The sites are well groomed and the concrete pads are nice and level. We will be back again! - aimee21

This park claims "big rig friendly" but we do not agree. The roads are on hills, very narrow, and partly paved, partly dirt with HUGE deep ruts and wash outs. Traffic directions rules not enforced. We had great difficulty driving to our site and meeting a vehicle going the wrong way. Trees so thick we could not get satellite, even though we requested a satellite friendly site as previous reviewer advised. We were merely told that they didn't know if a site could get satellite or not. Pads are concrete and spaced nicely apart from neighbor, however, maneuvering a 40 ft motorhome in around the trees with such a narrow roadway with RV's parked directly across from you right up to the roadway is quite a challenge. Overpriced and definitely will not come back. - BeckyV

This is a town/county park just outside Steven's Point, Wisconsin. It is much like a state park, long on beauty and nature but short on amenities (no sewer at your site). The site parking is gravel/sand but surrounded by trees and separated from other campers. The roads were twisty and could have used some tree trimming because we have a large motorhome. - mountainfan

For us, this was the perfect campground. The sites are large, level, and secluded. Lots of mature trees surround each site (you can see the other sites near you, but you have 75' of woods between most sites). There are several "double" sites (like sites 2&3 and 14&15) which are great for two units wanting to be together. There is one pull-through (site 11). Nice walking trails (down past the dam, up past the boat launch to the 3 walk-in site area). Exceptionally friendly campground host, gave us great tips and sold us excellent firewood ($5/ 1/2 wagon load). Picnic tables & fire rings for each campsite. (Site 12 has the ring on the wrong side though). Park manager walks the loop frequently. No excessive noise or inappropriate behavior during our 3-day stay here. Good electricity (no water). Single dump station. Decent cell phone coverage (Verizon and AT&T and TrackPhone). For us, this was a very nice place to relax while doing activities in Stevens Point. We'll stay here again without a doubt! (PS- we're the kind of campers that like state parks, ACOE campgrounds, etc - we tend to avoid KOA and private parks) - AndersonFamily

The previous reviewer said it all. This is a very nice park with shaded sites and clean facilities. We were pleased to have a large, level site so that we did not have to unhitch for the night. The $20 fee included electricity. It will go on our list of good places to overnight when traveling I-39. - canoeperson

This park consists of primarily permanent sites, but has about 20 sites open for nightly use. It does not have a full-time staffed office, so the owners must be contacted by phone for check-in. There is no dump station and no sewer hookups, but staff will pump out holding tanks for a $10 fee. The owners were very friendly and helpful, as were many of the permanent residents. We would return if there was a need to stay close to Plover, WI. - mdtandem

Very large campground with a lot of amenities. Registration office serves hot food, ice cream and has almost anything you could need for purchase. If you forgot it I would guess they have it. Site we stayed on was a good size but some where not as big. Cabins also available for rent. Campground has a lake with rental boats, paddle boards and kayaks as well as large inflatables. It also has a sand beach and beach hut with snacks. There is also a pool with slide, kiddie pool and adult pool with swim up bar. These were all to busy for us to use the weekend we were there. There are also playgrounds, a game room and mini golf. Only has one dump station which makes check out time very busy. - 5thatdrive

Our site was super un level and had to call the office to get additional boards to level it out. Others seemed to be better. They have some concrete slabs on the premier sites. They have a pool swim up bar which is a first for me at a campground that is really nice. A nice splash pad area and pool for the kids and a great beach with Wibit inflatables which are a lot of fun. Park is large and a golf cart will cut down on the walking. Huge pine trees throughout and some of the sites are quite large. Kids had a blast with all the stuff and I think it might be a yearly visit for us. - Campingwi

Site 146 was a serious pain to get level in....grass site with so many bumps and hills that we ultimately gave up and grew satisfied with a slightly off-level stay. Connections in oddly placed areas. Overall, the park had a lot of amenities, offered wifi which was a huge blessing because our verizon jetpack barely connected (verizon cell phone did not get service here) Very hot while we were here so we appreciated the lake beach. Swimming pool seemed to offer a lot of excitement, but we're just not excitement kind of people so we skipped it. If we were here during a busier time, we would not have been unable to back in to our site, as the access road was narrow and it would have been very tricky to get around the trees and poles and cabins in the way (we "pulled through" an adjoining site to get in.) Given we were trying to stay closer to other family members, we kept our given site but would otherwise have tried to find a different one. Excellent camp store and lots of opportunities to waste money on arcade-like machines and "mining" for the kids. We thought the rate was far too high for what was offered. - ThreeTravellingBlondes

Private Campground on full wake lake. Some small sites, some are large, as well as some lake view sites. $38 cost includes water, electric and air conditioning fee. Electric boxes and water poles in some sites are located in weird spots, so you may need extra cords and hoses. Playground, putt-putt golf, volleyball court, baseball field and large field located on site. Campground has a store with ice cream and restaurant/bar with tiki bar onsite. Bar has bands on many weekends. Lake has a dock with peddle boat and kayak rentals. Lake is very shallow and great for swimming. Boat landing down the street. Beach is within walking distance to all sites. - 5thatdrive
