Beautiful park, lots of trees, quiet, well maintained. One drawback was water spigots were only on certain sites and we did not have enough hose to reach the one next to us. Check out which one that has the water on site first. We played pickleball there. - we're rollin

First, the good: For $18 we got a large site with full hookup. This park offers a very good value. Now the bad: Bathrooms and showers were very smelly, filled with mosquitos and other insects. My husband said there was a decaying frog body in the urinal. In addition, there are several factories to the west of the park that are noisy all night.
If a person needed to go to Marshfield for medical needs, this would be a handy place to stay. - Organic1

This park is truly a hidden secret. LG sites, most have electric and water. Some have sewer, if not 2.00 for dump station. Very clean and well maintained. - Msneuby

This is an unusually messy park. We had to search to find someone to check us in. We finally found someone in the attached bar. This is a very dirty park. It is like a bad State park gone really bad. We will never stay here again. - Shadoe

This place has all the amenities, but is in a generally run down condition. Roadways were poorly maintained with many bumps and potholes. It was a weekend and vehicles were everywhere, making it difficult to traverse to/from our site. Rest rooms and laundry facilities were dirty and in poor shape. Hookups were not well marked and disorganized and we found that we were overlapping other peoples' cables and hoses to get to one that was accessible. We never did find a sewer hookup. We had problems with consistent power output. - Sunny5

We stayed here overnight to take advantage of the adjoining bike trail. A very nice city park especially considering the camping rate was only $15. Just as nice as many places we've stayed at that were double the cost. The sites were level and paved and some of the sites are along the riverfront. Very pretty. There are clean bathrooms but no showers. There is a city swimming pool in the park but it was still closed for the season. We were here mainly to use the very nice bike trails and plan on returning. - jseugene

This is a basic park. The sites are all paved, and each has a picnic table and a trash can. Some sites have 30 amp and some have 30/50 amp. The sites on the river side have the electric and water on the wrong side of the RV (passenger side when backing in); the sites on the opposite side of the road have the electric and water on the correct side. There are restrooms near the city pool, but no showers. There are showers in the city pool building, but there is a charge of $2.50 for kids, $3.00 for adults to use the pool/showers. There is a free dump station about 1 mile away at the city treatment plant. Park was quiet. Nice place to stay for an overnight. - sendthefire

This is a beautiful city park on the Black River and Medford Mill Pond. Bike and walking trail comes through the park and connects with a 26 mile Rail/Trail good for hiking and biking. There is a municipal swimming pool in the park, as well as other recreational facilities. This is a great find ... try it ... you'll like it. - Bob & Bonnie
Jul 2016 - $44.00
This is a beautiful State Park. The $44 fee included out-of-state visitor fee of $11. This is really camping with heavy woods and campfires. We had 30 electric only for this price. Should have stayed longer. - W Davidson

We were concerned about being able to fit and called the night before and were told that 42' RV's (we're 38') have been here, so we were ok. When we arrived the ranger was concerned that our rv wouldn't fit, so now we were concerned again. Ended up, we had no problem getting into our spot, and there were several spots we would have been comfortable in. The road to the campground was tighter than the campground road, so no need to worry once you arrive at the campground.
The sites are hard packed dirt, with lots of space between them and lots of trees overhead, no satellite reception here. Our site was pretty muddy (not the kind you get stuck in, just the kind you track around), since they there had been a lot of rain recently and the mosquitos were pretty bad because of the moisture. Our site was relatively level, but many others weren't.
The park itself is quite nice with lots of hiking trails and the lake for swimming and fishing. We enjoyed exploring the park, but were limited in what we wanted to do because of rain and bugs. Still, it's a nice park and campground and I would return, if in the area. - Uno Mas

The park is about 10 miles off of Hwy 51. You will go through Merrill and watch your speed (mostly 25mph). Definitely a speed-trap town. The park has a very large station for registration/check-in. Staff was friendly. Roads are very narrow with a lot of low hanging limbs. I would not attempt with a large motorhome. The main road in is very narrow with large trees on both sides. Not a good place for two large rigs to meet. Campground sites are dirt/sand with a picnic table and a fire ring. They are somewhat level. Will have difficulty backing large rigs into some sites. Again, watch for low hanging limbs. Electric at site. Water stations scattered around campground. Dump station on the way out. Bathroom/showers are nasty. Showers are very grubby and not sanitary. Looks like they have not been cleaned all summer. There are two showers in men’s side for the entire campground. ATT phone reception is spotty. Verizon is better. Satellite signal practically impossible due to heavy forest cover. Campground is very busy throughout the summer. Almost everyone is local folks and they love to burn wood. Expect LOTS of smoke day and night. The State of Wisconsin requires all vehicles entering state parks to purchase a park pass. For non-residents, it is $10 per day or $35 annually. This fee is NOT included in your camping fee. I will not stay here again. - Alaska Jim

Camped Labor Day weekend without a reservation. Plenty of open sites. Called twice and staff was helpful in providing availability and then verbal directions into the park. We have a 35' 5th Wheel and easily backed into space 6, a mostly level site. 30 amp electric at site. Water spigot for refilling our tank located nearby, with dump station available in the park. Clean, quiet campground, with secluded feeling in the forest. Enjoyed the close proximity of bicycle trails along the river. All shopping is close by. - JamulGMA

Very nice "urban" campground. Our site backed up to the park's public areas. Site was shaded, grass and plenty of space. The bathrooms had keypads and required a code to enter. Our site was electric, filled our water tank as we entered the park. We enjoyed our stay here while we explored the area. - AlreadyGone

Good experience. The. Ampground is convenient to shopping and restaurants. The sites are mostly shaded. Many but not all sites are big rig friendly. The dump station is a bit dofficult to access given metal posts and trees; made it with our 40' mh but not sure about anything bigger. The water supply is on the same lane as the dump station, near the end of that lane. The bathroom codes are currently 415 for men and 514 for women. Good reception for broadcast tv and for Verizon cell service. We found it to be very quiet over our 4 day stay. Sites were available at all times including the weekend. Staffing is basically non-existent; Wausau police do patrol the park. - Pktva

Nice park, lots of trees. Not big rig friendly. Narrow Roads, low hanging limbs, trees close to roads, tight turns. I have a 38' fifth wheel and according to the website information it seems big rig friendly. I even called the office to make sure but the woman on the phone looked online and told me what I already knew. She apparently had never been out to the park. I found out it was not big rig friendly. Sites are big enough IF you can get in them. I would not return. To bad, it's a nice park on a nice lake at a good price. They have a 2 night minimum stay. Would have rated it higher if it were big rig accessible. Make sure to take on water at the "A frame", it's at the dump station a few miles before the campground. No spigots in the campground so you have to go all the way back to the dump station. - Coley

The city has upgraded this park since our stay in 2006 but didn't go far enough. Due to a "construction" boom they upgraded many sites to water and electric and still have the dump available. There is no gravel or pavement for any of the spots and during rains you sink quickly. The park is still maintained but they have doubled the price and with a park available at Dorchester for the same money, this one has suffered by comparison. Too bad, because a little grading and gravel would make it a beautiful spot. - lgr_001

This city park is useful for a "necessary" layover in this area. There is a nice R/V Dump which is free if needed. Potable water is also available. Worst part is the mosquitos during the summer. Park is right by the railroad tracks so it's quite noisy if trains bother you. - lgr_001
