Cleanest campground we've stayed at, and we've been to a bunch. Restrooms are officially cleaned once every day, but I observed staff wiping down fixtures before and after the full cleaning. It looked like you were the first person using the restroom or shower pretty much every time you used it, regardless of time of day. This is such a pretty, peaceful, restful place to stay. Within short driving distance from all the attractions Door County has to offer but yet far enough away to be out of the congestion. Sites are large and well separated by thick trees. The owners are genuinely concerned and helpful for their guests. Case in point- we had a slide-out stuck and the owner did everything he could to help us including loaning us his time, tools and a ladder to attempt repairs. He even offered to escort us to the repair shop! Aside from the fantastic owners, all the staff are friendly and pride in their work is evident all around the campground. Sites are groomed, landscaping is impeccable, and everyone is just in a good mood. We will definitely return. Book early! Some folks reserve a year in advance. - Fdwt994

This is a very well run property located in the NE end of Door County WI, so it is rather isolated. The region is a combinations of farm fields and forests. The campground is located in a forest, and as you may expect, a haven for mosquitoes. They have a limited number (7) of pull-through sites, and a limited number (11) of FHU sites, but none with both. Our site was a pull-through and had minimal usable space, mostly woods. I did think $55 was a little steep for a w/e only site. I am not claustrophobic, but I prefer a little open space. Site #317 looked quite spacious and was a pull-through. The entry roads are paved, but the rest are gravel and narrow. The sites are all gravel and some are not too level. We did not use the shower, but my daughter (also w/o sewer) did and said it was very clean. Our site was very close to the office, but the Wi-Fi signal was too weak to connect. There is no cable TV and the antenna did not find much. The location of the utilities was in the middle of the site, but there was very little room between the woods and the MH. Had to connect/disconnect with the slide in. The property is very well maintained, in fact they were raking the site as soon as we pulled out. There is a garden hose at the dump station so I could rinse the black tank, which is something you don't often see. Door County is a great place to visit, and if you like deep woods camping, this is a fine campground. But there are other options available that are more open and centrally located. - Martini

Stayed here at the Wagon Trail Campground in Door County, Wisconsin and the service and staff are excellent. The campsites were pretty level and the restrooms and showers have been recently remodeled and are very clean. From the campground there are some nice trails to the nearby Mink River and to a fairly quiet beach are on the shores of Lake Michigan. The water up here is much clearer than you will see in the lake down by Chicago. If you have a tow vehicle, you could easily spend a week traveling around the nearby areas and exploring this part of Wisconsin. Lot's of scenic drives and fun places to stop. I hope to make Wagon Trail Campground part of an annual tradition. - Bogie71

We stayed seven nights in 40 foot fifth wheel. The park is well maintained and undergoing an expansion. They are adding about fifteen full hookup, pull thru sites in an open area, full sun. Most of the older sites are in full shade and have cable. The full sun sites will have cable but did not while we were there which was fine because we have Dish. This park is at the northern end of Door County peninsula just north of Sister Bay and just south of Elison Bay. This is a beautiful location near plenty of cherry orchards. We were here in mid-late August and the cherry season was winding down. Note that they mostly grow tart cherries here. This is an area that we will return to and likely spend 3-4 weeks. There is so much to see, do, and eat in this area if you want to get out and about. Note that coming into door county for this park you want to stay to the east on 57 rather than come up on 42 so you can avoid many of the small towns and reduced speed areas. 57 will bring you back to 42 just north of Sister Bay. Hy-land Court will be on your left but do NOT take the first entrance at the first sign you see...wait a bit and take the second entrance at the second sign marked office...you will be glad you did. Roads are easy to navigate, site was level, utilities worked fine. Site C10 was especially nice because there is nobody on your door side; just grass and trees. - Moe and Flo are on the go

Stayed here 3 nights. There is the older section ..very Good and shady. Newer section sunny and they are adding more sections in the same area. My rating for this new part not as high because far from showers and bathrooms.( Much closer in the older section). Good wifi but not strong enough for Smart TV. They advertise cable but it is only available in the old section and not in the New section sites C10 to C16. Over the air channels only. Laundry older appliances and not a lot of machines and not open 24/7. Office has plenty of quarters for you. The charge here was very reasonable for RV parks in this very high tourist area. Also, they do not require a payment when you make reservation, but you pay by cash or check when you arrive. Personally, we liked this as we were booking parks one or two days before arrival while on the road. Would recommend this park in Door county. - greensgirl46

There are a combination of mobile home and RV sites; summer price is competitive for area; park is exceptionally clean throughout; roads are gravel, but well maintained; all sites of either type are neat and well maintained. Sites are level, deep, and roomy on both sides. Some pull-throughs; 15 new pull-throughs should be ready Aug/Sep 19; many sites have ample shade; newer sites have little or no shade and are satellite friendly; we preferred shade to satellite service and loved our site; cable is offered, but our TV set-up precluded it's use; we found WIFI strength and speed to be outstanding. Owners and office staff very friendly and helpful. Great, quiet park that is more adult oriented, but still kid friendly. I highly recommend this park and intend to stay here on a return trip. - rickblaher

Small park. The pool was advertised as being heated but seemed to be a little cool. All gravel pads. We had issues with our surge suppressor tripping on and off due to the low voltage of the park. - Roberre

This is a a family run campground, run by the sweetest couple. We really enjoyed our site, however this park seemed to mostly be long term campers. That always changes the vibe for us. Everything was clean, my son loved the catch & release pond. Sadly, the wooded areas had to be avoided during our stay because of heavy rains the week before and mosquitoes. We did not have a chance to use the pool. The location is fabulous. We were able to walk to the bakery for breakfast and Sister Bay was a quick drive up the road. This is also a great place to stay for those visiting the state parks. We did not have full hook-ups, so plan to visit their dump station. It was a very tight drive for our 37 foot fifth wheel to maneuver the interior rode that goes through the park, but doable. To reserve you must mail a check for a deposit as they do not accept credit cards. Plan to arrive with cash or check. This is a great home base to enjoy Door County. - barrygoodtimes

I have been camping here all my life. This is one trip the whole family looks forward to every year. The entire property is well maintained and CLEAN. The pool is great and lots of open spaces for the kids to play. The sites are private and shady. There is a trout pond where you can catch rainbow trout. - F350John

We love the island. We love it so much we'd probably stay in the middle of a mudpit and find it hard to complain. The campground has seen some changes in recent years--mostly in terms of cabin builds. But one thing does remain consistent...if you want to use the showers, bring your galoshes. The drainage problem there that was also present years ago results in a pretty nasty shower experience (ankle deep in mysterious swamp like whoknowswhat). Some attempts seem to be made with keeping up with the cleanliness, but the feminine products floating in the showers and crazy slow-drain soapy residue made the restrooms something to avoid during our stay. The laundry facilities are the only ones on the island, but it will cost ya $5.00 a load (2.75 wash, 2.25 dry). Some sites will challenge even the best backer-upper, as maneuvering around trees and then attempting to be level is not always an easy task here. Lots of tent camping among RV sites with W/E hookups, the purpose of which seems to be to use the electricity to run radios. All day, all night. Given that tents cannot contain noise like RVs can, some additional separation or assignment of sites might be helpful....for instance a section for tents that want electricity, etc. The park could really use some camphosts, as it appears one or two people are trying to manage the whole thing...and it shows via a lot of site neglect. - ThreeTravellingBlondes

Washington Island is a nice place to visit and this campground is the only game in town. Nice, large, wooded campsites. Electric pedestals are out in the woods between campsites so you will need a long extension cord. Our 30 Amp cord + extension cord wouldn't reach so we had to use a 50 foot 20 Amp cord.
Owners are very friendly and there are a lot of nice amenities like a swimming pond with sand beach, miniature golf course, playground, etc.
The down sides are the place needs more and better maintenance--potholes in roads, general litter in campground, inoperative fixtures in restrooms. A strange thing--the restrooms were clean and well stocked with soap, paper towels, etc. But the showers were pretty cruddy. And it's a long hike from the camp sites to the restrooms & showers.
Not a great campground, but OK if you want to stay a few days on Washington Island. - John45

On the brochure I got from the RV dealer about the campground there were people swimming and holding up big fish which leads you to believe there is water at the campground. Not the case. The campground is located 4 miles from the water on a small island. All that shoreline and they put the campground in the middle of nowhere. To get to the island it's about 100 bucks in ferry fees. Once on the island you start to see there is not as much to do there than where you came from. The staff was nice and it was easy to get a reservation. The island coast is beautiful and the water is clear and cold. I would like to rate this campground higher but due to the lack of activities, 5 is as high as I'll go. I would suggest to save the ferry ride money and stay somewhere else in Door County. - laynela

This is our third time of staying here. The hosts are polite and competent. They guide you to your site.
The 30 amp electric held its voltage ... the dump site is easy to get to.
My only suggestion for improvement would be some serious road improvement ... they are marked by many potholes.
This is a handy location for the things that we like to do while visiting Door County: plays, hiking, dining. - skigramp

Stayed in Motorhome so we did not use the restrooms. We did use the laundry that had 2 washers and 2 dryers, they both worked fine. All gravel roadways and a little dusty. Our site was a pull thru, we have a 34ft motorhome and had no problems. It was a quiet stay and we had no problems. Site included 30 or 50 amp service and water. Dump station was available. We would stay again. - Bonzo656

This is my third visit to this park since the new owners took over in 2011. They have invested a lot of "sweat equity" in cleaning up the grounds, trimming trees, cutting grass and the overall general appearance. If I owned the campground I would spend some time and money on the bathhouses. Spiders in the corners, water around the sinks, floor dirty. I noticed and pointed out several things, and the manager was appreciative. The problem is this: you must have an eye for noticing things that could be improved and I can tell you that the employees here do not have an eye for that. Examples: they have a fish windsock hanging on the entrance sign. It's in it's third season and faded: spend $25 bucks and present a good first impression. Paint the outside of the office building; repair the bathroom fixtures. The best thing about this campground is the location: close proximity to Fish Creek. The sites are decent and overall it improved greatly, time to take it to the next level. Has amazing potential! - jeffincedar

We camped for 4 nights in the Nicolet South Bay Campground, one of several campgrounds in Peninsula State Park. The park is a well-known tourist destination in Door County, WI, with many hiking/biking trails, water sports and beautiful views. We camped near the bathroom/shower building, so the location was convenient. The building needs updates. There were many broken tiles in the showers along with mildew in the grout. There was plenty of hot water. The women's bathroom had a leaking toilet, causing the floor to be constantly wet. My friend, who camps annually at the campground, said it has been leaking for more than a year. The sites are good sized with some shade. Most have vegetation that provides privacy between sites. Sites are graveled, however, our site had gravel only where our trailer was parked. Gravel was missing from the rest of the area, making walking on the muddy ground (lots of recent rain) necessary. Other sites were completely graveled. Quiet hours are not enforced, and our neighbors were noisy until 1:00AM the last night we were there. All sites are back-in. The popularity of this park makes reservations necessary if you want electricity. Convenient 2-lane dump station. It is a beautiful part of Wisconsin so worth a visit even with the needed upkeep in this campground. - Eldereaglewatchers

First time staying at this park and will definitely be back. It is difficult to get in to during the summer months so I was able to book for almost a week in October. The weather was chilly and very windy during our stay but we still had a wonderful time. The site was a bit difficult to get in to but I got it after a few tries. There is a lot of good hiking here as well as fishing, swimming and water sports (during warmer weather), and quick-ish access to all that Door County has to offer. The Eagle Bluff Lighthouse is in the park and the tour is interesting and good views from the top. The sunset from the kayak launch in the Tennison Bay Loop was unbelievable! Park was quiet and super peaceful. The trail that runs along the lake is beautiful as well as popular in the AM hours. Can't wait to go back! Dump station has 2 lanes which was helpful but I can see it getting crowded on a summer Sunday. - EllenT

LOVE this Park. Lots of campsites, great views. Curiously, there is only ONE fresh water fill for campers and ONE dump station for a huge park. We've been there for the past three falls and will be there again this year. - KTown Santa

The face each other. Awnings almost touch. Clean park. the fire ring is unusable because the sites are so close, the ring is under the awning. - tpk1923

Easy to reserve online. If you stay four nights you get the fifth night free. We were escorted to our pull-through site which was fairly level and very close to our neighbor. Our slide outs almost touched our neighbors. Roads are a bit tight for rigs 40ft and over. Campground has a pool, nice playground, laundry, game room, small camp store. Some sites have cable, there is WiFi. The campground is surrounded by farms and is very quiet. The staff weren't all that friendly, but we spent most of our time exploring the area. We would stay here again. - mohocamper

Although pricey, this is a good location for touring the peninsula. Very close to downtown Baileys Harbor and short drives to towns on the west side like Sister Bay. All of the seaside towns are charming with lots of flowers and a wide variety of restaurants. You can bicycle pretty much anywhere. There are free concerts almost every day in one town or the other. Farmers markets abound. There is easy access to the water with many public beach areas. Our site at the park was unlevel side to side, and we ended up with one back tire slightly off the ground. The sites contain white rock that left some very deep ruts after a storm. The staff leveled out some of the ruts but not all of them. The white rock is small and gets everywhere. We were on an end site and had a nice green area on the driver side. The passenger side was pretty close to our neighbor. We had our own utility hook up but some sites share it. The WII FI is either good or terrible. Utilities good. Directv satellite good. Verizon 4g 3 bars (varies at different sites). There is a nice, clean pool, and an activity center with a pool table, ping pong, and arcade games. There is also a basketball court and playground. Lots of kids riding their bikes or skateboards through the park. For the most part, it was quiet, although some weekends got a little loud as the locals came to party. We would stay here again. - Free

One of the best parks we have stayed in for the price. Everything was clean and the staff was very helpful and friendly. Some of the sites were a little tight, but there were a lot of large motor coaches using the park and did not seem to have any problems. WIFI was excellent and we were able to even stream movies. We stayed 10 nights and had an excellent stay, would recommend to anyone staying in Door County. First site was a pull thru (606), just enough room for our 35' 5th wheel. Then after deciding to stay longer had to move to a back in site (105) which was much longer. - Chuck69

Stayed at campground for a week, rate reflects last day free. Campground is located 1 mile from Baileys Harbor and has gravel roads and level gravel pads with grass between sites. Sites are relatively spacious and have a picnic table and fire ring. There are two areas - most are in the trees with lots of shade and other a newer open area where you can get satellite. The open area is less scenic with views of several large metal metal RV storage sheds and the large recreation center(pickle ball court, large meeting room, game room and workout room). There is also a pool and playground. They pick your trash. The wifi was surprisingly excellent as we could stream Netflicks. - Tom Willing

I have lived in Wisconsin for 43 years and never visited Door County. I never really understood what the draw was so we thought we should go see for ourselves. The campground was full and we were lucky to get a site. We did have to sign all kinds of things to be able to check in. We were told we would get wifi at our site but it didn't work very well at our site. The pool was great, they had a basketball court, and a fish cleaning area. The site was level and didn't need any leveling. Overall we had a great time in door county and I am glad we finally got a chance to experience. I would stay at this location again if we get up in that area again. - haplo777

The park is abundantly treed maybe too much. Very little sunlight gets through the canopy consequently there is also an abundance of Mosquitos. The pluses to the park, very friendly and helpful staff and the park is located on the quiet site of the peninsula. The park also looks and feels like a campground not a parking lot. - arteacher

This park offers many types of sites for any kind of camping, from tents to cabins to the largest RV's. It looks like it was a KOA at one point, but the current owners have invested a great deal in cleaning and updating areas of the park to make them suitable for everyone. The older, heavily-treed section has graded dirt/gravel roads and sites. The restrooms are brand-new. We stayed in the newer "executive" area that features concrete pads and patios, packed-asphalt roads, fire rings and grass at each site. There are not many of these sites available, but we lucked out. Most of the executive sites will permit satellite reception as the trees are young, Verizon and AT&T cell/data service was fine. We would definitely stay at this park again if we can get one of the executive sites. - expdek570

Excellent rv park & resort! Very well run. Executive sites have concrete pads & patios, landscaping (grass, shrubs, young trees), & full hookups. Dog friendly, nice trail to walk at back of park. Good Verizon reception & OTA TV. Wifi. Some road noise at front of park. Heated pool. Trash is picked up at your site. Trees are trimmed up so no problems for a big rig. Great place to stay. - JeannBob

This is a very clean, well maintained campground. All the staff members were very accommodating. We were in the Executive sites in the new section. (Book early for these sites) These sites were concrete with full hookups, patio and table. The interior roads of the executive sites were hard pressed gravel and easy to navigate. The other sections are gravel/grass and dirt/grass and require attention when navigating in and out of the park. I gave the CG extra points for recycling. - Michael47
