This park it self is wonderful. They really need to think about putting water on all the sites. The park manager was not friendly. The area was quite wet when we first arrived. No parking on the grass. Toward the end of the week, the area was drying up. My folks, who are 85 years old came out to visit is us. My dad parked on the grass and the park manager made a point to come around and tell them and us about the no parking rule on the grass. In a tone of voice that was not nice. He was not staying more than a hour to visit. - sweats

We stayed there a full week and found the camp hosts pleasant and helpful. The park and features were in good shape, the rest rooms and showers clean. 20 and 30 amp electric only. - BaldEagle42

We stay at this park every summer to visit family in the area. The roads and large sites are paved with nice grassy areas between. Sites have 30 amp electric with fresh water and dump station at park entrance. There is a very clean shower building with flush toilets and showers. The campground is across the street from Beaver Dam Lake with a boat launch and fishing pier. This park is a gem in a peaceful natural setting. Will stay here again and again. - krb

No laundry on site, payment quoted on phone was then expected to be cash, more if by card. No late arrival allowed, no attempt to accommodate needs of camping arrival. Reservationist did not speak clear English. Steep, gravel entry drive: watch out for deer. Rained and concerned branches could have hit RV. Trees untrimmed.
No trash cans throughout park. Only 1 dumpster which is marked for food only specific type of trash. You're told to take your trash out with you.
Poorly lit indoor pool with no life guard. No pool safety items. Pay showers, which were not the cleanest. Grounds are not well maintained, grass looks like rarely mowed. Lots of mosquitos. Gravel roads. Picnic tables were old. I will never stay here again or recommend. - Jane77

We have been camping at The Playful Goose for 3 years and have always found the owners to be very accommodating. We have our favorite site and found it by taking our time reviewing the website map and dates that accommodate our trips.
The sites are large, not on top of each other. The grounds and parking pads are maintained well including regular cleaning of the fire pits. The beautiful marsh setting is peaceful and fun for all with a park nearby. Paddle boats, canoes, etc are available for rent at the campground. The indoor pool is great for both kids and adults. The restrooms and showers are clean and if there is anything you need the owners are there to assist.
Thank you! - RCKK

It's a county park and taken very well care of. Quick check in and the park was about 90% full. All the sites are open unless you tent it back in the tent area. The sites along the river are all gravel and somewhat level. They area up top has concrete pads which cater to the big rigs and gravel area which looked a little congested. Tons of grass space to roam around. We stayed for two nights and did a little paddling on the river (they rent canoes) other then that not much going on. Not sure I would be back as its close to home and probably would explore someplace else. If passing through for the night or a need to be in the area I would stay again. - Campingwi

We have stayed at least once or twice a year for years. Each time is for two nights. Very clean, same park host's for several years. We stay on the black top for parking but very large grass area all around you. Spots are very large. This park is surrounded by water, if you have a smaller rig or tent you can camp by the water. Grass is always cut, burning pit is cleaned out after each camper leaves. Must buy firewood in the park if you want a fire. - Rod123

It would have been nice to have water hook up, guess I am spoiled. The park has all asphalt pad that were level. Great over air tv and cell service. The park was very clean and peacefully. I would stay there again. - rving4fun

Very nice park, still a bit hard to find, needs better signage. Park has been upgraded and has 30/50 amp power, at least ours did. Well kept and the camp hosts and crew were great. Stayed 4 nights while visiting family. Our site was the park handicap site, asphalt, but a bit unlevel. Other sites up the hill were closer together and looked like level dirt/grass/gravel. Free dump station for registered campers. Would stay again. - Nevada Nick

An out of the way park, signage to it not very good, but otherwise a pleasant surprise. Hiking trails have a view of the Horicon Marsh which is a must place to go to. Only down side is the 20 amp sites. Would stop here again without a doubt. - stetwood

We absolutely love this campground. The sites we had were nicely wooded and the play area was across the camp road. We had our family reunion here and the facilities were very nice and well kept. The bathrooms and showers were very clean, caretakers were very friendly and made sure guests were following rules. The trails are intriguing and show off beautiful scenery. We have stayed here 3 times and will continue to return. - cfamrace49

First be aware that whether you make reservation on line or just show up at park there is a $5.00 reservation fee. Also there is a huge amount of bugs. Most spaces are shaded and many are spacious. Water only and the dump station fill up is on way into cammpground so to use after stay you have to drive all around loop. Crowed on week ends and not so much during the week. Not really terrible place but I will not use again if I can help it. - arcticfox

Stayed here while visiting friends in the area. The sites are electric only with water and dump site by entrance. The sites are set in a wooded area. There is a bathroom/shower house also at the entrance. The adjacent park has group picnic areas with a reserve able shelter for parties. A swimming pool, walking trails and playground are close by. - TexasRVer

This is a nice county park, which per the campground host, typically has open sites on weekends. It has an updated shower/restroom building and paved interior roads. Several sites would accommodate big rigs, but the numerous trees would require cautious entry. The wooded campsites limit any satellite use. Limited recreational activities in the area cause the overall rating to fall short of excellent. - mdtandem

Nice grounds and a lot to do for the kids between the heated pool and lake with inflatable toys. I would not suggest staying up on the seasonal area if you have a bigger unit. We could not unhook or use the sewer hook-ups in this section in our original site. The office was very helpful in moving us to a open seasonal site, but it was still small as we couldn't get the 5er in there all the way. What would have worked would be a tractor, but not with my truck. The seasonal area was very quiet, and folks in this area very friendly. The buildings were clean and well maintained. Park was nice for the kids. Golf carts need to be parked by 9 PM. We'll go back, but request to be in the more the overnight area down by the lake / pool. - Trevor01

This campground is divided into three areas situated around a mill pond. The area on the north side of the pond appears to be all seasonal. The area on the south side is mostly seasonal with transient sites mixed in. The west side area we stayed in bordered the pond, was all grass with a number of trees and was all transient. It's also close to the office/store and swimming pool. The electric and water configuration is a bit helter skelter in this area and we had to run our water supply under the rig to a spigot shared with the next site over. The power pedestal was nearer but in an odd place too. In fact, the layout seemed deliberately wide open for the placement of most any rig because the site locations weren't clearly defined. Big rigs could have a problem if other neighboring sites fill ahead. Once you get in your spot, you are camping. Only 30amp power is available and voltage stayed between 111 - 118v. Water pressure was adequate around 40 psi. There are no sewered sites and no dump station. They have a honey-wagon to take care of pump-outs for $5. Wi-Fi is available but very finicky. We were able to get a one bar signal for our hotspot which performed better. Cell phone coverage is hit or miss depending on your service provider. Over the air TV station reception was very good with all the network and public channels represented. The owners were very welcoming and friendly. The store is well stocked for incidentals you may have forgotten. Donuts and coffee are available to purchase with your Sunday newspaper. The park is family oriented with lots of kids enjoying the pool. Fishing in the mill pond is free for catch & release. While we were there a youngster caught a 30" Northern Pike. Overall we had a good time during our two night stay. Pricing is above average for a park of this caliber but we would come back for a couple nights again, only during the week next time. - Born2Roam

Owners are extremely friendly. Has a small private pond. We stayed in sites that back right up to the pond - beautiful. But beware of the geese. Have activites every weekend and bakery fresh donuts every sunday morning. The fish boil is delicious. Nice pool. - User3521

Fun family campground. Quiet and beautiful. Owners are friendly and accommodating. Nice lake to fish in. Many campers are seasonal, so there is a wonderful sense of community here. Had fun playing bingo...and won a little cash, too. Would stay again. - GrandmaLee

Wow! It is a well kept park. People are friendly, friendly, friendly! They have a dog park, about an acre, really clean and fenced, lots of room to run. They held a chili dump while we were there. Good chili, I ate till I popped. Then we played bingo with all our new friends. This is mostly a park with seasonal units. The folks know each other and make you part of the community. The temporary spaces are roomy and green with fire rings. I really enjoyed my stay here. - LostSoulCa

This is our favorite Wisconsin campground! We enjoy the atmosphere and the convenience of having so much to do. The pool/waterpark is clean, and well kept. As a mom of two little ones, I appreciate the lifeguard staff, and the fact that the pool area and beach are right next to each other. The mini golf, frisbee golf, and pedal bikes are all rented with a deposit that you get back upon returning the items - this is a nice feature being able to do these things for free. This campground allows you to have one RV and one tent per site, which has been nice for having others camp with us. There are fun activities planned on the weekends - and our kids enjoy the activity center, jump pillow and playgrounds. This is a friendly, fun campground. We have stayed 4 times, and plan to keep going back! Helpful note: it can be noisy late - especially on bigger weekends, like Memorial Day weekend when they have a live band play. This didn't affect us that much with being in our travel trailer, but we had friends staying on our site in a tent, and it was hard for them to sleep - they were pretty crabby the next day. - GoBigOrGoHome

We stayed June 24 - June 26 in our 26' travel trailer. $158.26 incl. tax for 2 adults & 3 children aged 7, 17, & 17. We stayed on site #1; friends stayed on site #2. I was NOT a happy camper this visit. - No pun intended. THE BAD: Our site was covered & I mean covered in geese feces. Good thing we have dogs & I was able to use their pooper scooper....for a little over AN HOUR! I'd say every 10-12 inches there was a pile. Not even exaggerating! Once our friends arrived we collected quite a bit more for at least another 30-45 minutes each. I'd say together we gathered 8-10 pounds of feces. Again, not making this up. We mentioned something to the office & they said people were coming Saturday morning to clean up. The beach was covered - disgusting! Not even a "sorry for the trouble, can we get you some ice-cream?!" Since we were on site #1 we had seen the maintenance crew arrive Saturday morning. They did one section of the beach area, left, & didn't come back. There was still A LOT left! And they didn't come by our site to clean up, or any others for that matter, just the beach area. They are also using a strobe light system to scare the geese away, but all they did was sit behind our camper. I also think they are being fed because at one point they stayed away from the beach area, but we noticed almost all had their heads down to the ground. At this site we also had a lot of campers walking through our site. Unfortunately our one dog that we recently adopted got anxious each time someone walked through the site, so we had to take him inside. It would have been nice if people walked around. THE GOOD: The pool was spectacularly clean this time. It was also nice seeing the lifeguards watching for height restrictions on the younger water slide riders. Out of the local campgrounds in WI this is our #2 favorite campground, but our #3 overall. We will be back, I just hope the geese are more under control next time. - Candi and Michael WI

Be sure to thoroughly question the site you plan to stay on. Some sites have terribly placed trees if you have a large rig. We have a 42' fifth. Plan your path to your site before leaving the gate, some turns are quite tight.
This is a party campground. So if you are looking for quiet, this is not your place. Our river front site actually was quite nice. But again, ask when you call. Plenty of weekend sites do not have shade, but some have really nice large mature trees.
There is a guarantee you will have golf carts buzzing around all day. All of them playing music quite loud.
No garbage bins are placed around the campground. You must drive all your garbage to a somewhat inconvenient location. Particularly if you typically throw out garbage while hooked up and dumping. This park has 2 dump stations which is nice, but one of them you must pull head on to a building and back out.
The pool and water slides were well kept and maintained. The beach pond had a funky smell, taste(don't ask), and color. The weird turquoise color makes you wonder.
Horseshoe, volleyball, baseball areas all look fairly well maintained. The Frisbee golf course was decent. I'm sure not many people play that. The skate park I was really looking forward to, was nothing more than a cracked up, abandoned tennis court. The actual tennis court didn't look much better. Both of which should be taken off their advertisements. The dunk tank I didn't look for but didn't see either. - Magiccowinuse

We stayed here and had water/elec hookup. This park is very well kept, has both a swim pond and pool, 2 nice kids park areas. Owners keep the grounds/bathrooms/showers in excellent shape. Nice store with some groceries. Lots of things to do, and fun activities to participate in. We were by the road, and it is quite busy, but it was fun to watch the Amish buggies go by. The owner was great in helping with maps of area and things to do. We will definitely return. - cfamrace49

This is a clean, well maintained campground. The staff is courteous. Sites are pretty close together but are in amongst the pine trees. The pool is nice as is the swimming pond. They had a lot of activities scheduled for the holiday weekend. Our family had a really nice time. We will camp here again. - Kinger
