Governor Thompson State Park is the best campground we have visited so far since we began our full time RV life in February. The bathhouse was by far the best in all respects. This State Park was built in 2000; the facilities are modern and beautifully designed. The 100 sites were either entirely in the shade or partially shaded, separated by generous privacy vegetation. Only 16 had electricity, none had water/sewer. Most appeared to be level to fairly level. The campground loops are three miles past the ranger office, and the boat launch was a little farther along. Woods Lake, close to the office, was for non-motorized craft. The only negative for us was at the dump station. The non-potable water hose used to rinse the black and gray tanks had a raw end. The male hose fitting needed to attach to our trailer's tank rinse port was missing. We reported this apparent vandalism to the park manager with a photo. The manager told us the raw hose end was intentional and required by the health department. We were further informed dump stations in all Wisconsin state parks had raw hose ends to rinse tanks. At our next Wisconsin State Park campground we found the normal male hose fitting at the dump station. No raw hose end. We paid $33/night, the $8 online reservation fee, plus the required Wisconsin park pass: non-resident annual $32 or daily $9. We camped at Governor Thompson State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The cost per night includes the $10 SURPRISE access fee. Electric only for $22; PLUS $10/day or $35 yearly State park Access Pass. (This was a surprise that had us considering leaving and eating the 1st nights charge) Water and dump station are on site. There is a nice boat launch and lake for boating or kayaking with lots of wildlife. The main shower house was nice and pretty clean. The restrooms scattered among the loops are block out-houses. The sites are generous. Trees blocked my sat dish but some local channels were available using the antennae. We had minimal cell and data with Verizon. We hear AT&T worked better. Nice park if want seclusion; we'll look elsewhere next time and file this under "been there; done that". We camped at Governor Thompson State Park in a Motorhome.

We camped here the first week this new state campground opened so keep that in mind as you read this. While this new state campground certainly has potential, it's currently unfinished. The dump station wasn't operable and you had to haul your trash out. In addition, the 3-mile road into the campground is gravel that creates an incredible amount of dust and kicks up stones onto any tow vehicle. However, I'm told that over the next year all these things will be fixed + an additional 50 campsites are being added. This state campground is located near some great fishing and boating areas and the local is beautiful. Just keep in mind that it's a diamond in the rough. We camped at Governor Thompson State Park in a Motorhome.
