This park cost us $45 less a night than a previous one and has better sites without all the glitz. Our site was spacious, good utilities and good wifi! We found it a good value. Park is quiet. Don't let the bar part of the name turn you away, although it might be a plus to some. It doesn't intrude on the park. We camped at Frontier Bar & Campgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.

Location off US 2 was perfect for a night on our way to Glacier. Limited sites with full hookups. Looked like a lot of folks were monthly renters. No one visited 5+ campers that were parked near us the entire time we were there. Would stay here again - for one night to get some rest. We camped at Frontier Bar & Campgrounds in a Travel Trailer.

Water and 50 amp electric in NEW sites is now $33 per night. Sites are nice, place is well cared for, but pretty much in the middle of nowhere so a little pricey. We camped at Frontier Bar & Campgrounds in a Motorhome.

First Impression: Rather nice but there's nothing much around. This is a gas station, bar & grill, and campground, all rolled into one stop. Pleasant roadside presentation. Clean. Safety: no concerns. Access: on US-2, halfway between here and there. GPS took us right in. Billboard signs alert you to the CG which is clearly visible off the road. Office: In the bar & grill, token store with overpriced snacks, beer and soft drinks, and hot food, with a few RV and auto items. Credit cards accepted. Must call for reservations. Facilities: No pool, spa, fitness room, or rec center. No laundry room. Very old but clean restrooms with a single, pay shower stall (score "B"). No propane sales. Older but nice looking playground. No fenced dog run. Campground: Not in a flood plain. Roads are dirt/gravel with gentle turns and no overhead obstacles. Big rig friendly. Sites are all spacious, mostly pull-through with a few back-in. Tent area but no yurts or cabins. Sites are mostly grass (some dirt), level, quite long with grass between sites. Utilities at mid-rig with FHU-20/30; no meters. Low water pressure with good taste. Sewer pipe is 3" threaded, just above ground level. No patios. Weather worn picnic tables. Fire rings. Only a few sites have satellite views (trees elsewhere). No cable TV. OTA TV found 10 channels but no major networks. Free CG Wi-Fi but weak coverage; "ok" bandwidth. Verizon phone and 4G at 5 bars. No railroad or aircraft noise and only minor, occasional road noise. No recycle bins. Bug Report (early June): small brown ants, mounds all over the place. A lot of mosquitoes. Runners: CG roads ok for running, no fitness room so no treadmills. Yoga: grass is not tall, okay for your mat. Conclusion: Decent price for an overnight or a few days. We camped at Frontier Bar & Campgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.

We had full hook-ups. The 7th day was free. Don't let the "Bar" part dissuade you. It is a comfy little campground. Free Wi-Fi was nice and strong. We would stay there again. We camped at Frontier Bar & Campgrounds in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

We were there over 4th of July, go see the fireworks in Ashland, they're terrific! We went to Madeline Island on the ferry and also took a boat tour, both out of Bayfield. There are several waterfalls is the area, Potato Falls and Superior Falls were great, prepare to walk uphill!

Don't let the "bar" part of the name discourage you. the campground is well behind the combination bar/convenience store/gas station office on the front. It is a great overnight, very quiet. We chose a pull through on the back row, very long, and plenty wide enough. They are dirt and grass sites, but hard packed and our 40' motor home had no issues pulling out even though it rained while we were there. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Frontier Bar & Campgrounds in a Motorhome.

The check in for this park is in the bar in front of it, which may sound sleazy, but it is clean, bright and has a store as well. Meals are also available. The manager was very professional. The spaces are large, shady and grassy. The WiFi was the best ever, however if you have to rely on your antenna, you get three channels-all public TV. If that doesn't matter to you, this is a great park. We camped at Frontier Bar & Campgrounds in a Motorhome.

An RVer walks into a bar and says I want to book a site. Okay, the bar is the office for the park but it's friendly, The park is clean, very generous pull throughs, wonderful for dogs. This is a great spot for an overnight passing through Route 2. We would stay here again. We camped at Frontier Bar & Campgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.

Very convenient, right off US2, about halfway between Ashland WI and Ironwood MI. People very friendly. Sites are grassy, level. Roads are gravel. Only reason for a 7 is that the sites are narrow. Sitting outside our rig, I could hear the people in the rig next to use opening/closing their drawers. We would stay here again. We camped at Frontier Bar & Campgrounds in a Motorhome.

Nice park for an overnight stay. Bar very convenient if you like a wind down drink after driving. Sites grass and gravel. Our assigned site was very uneven so I just pulled into the one next to it and told them I had moved. They had no problem with that. If you pull in and are ready for fuel, fill up as you get $2.00 off the nightly rate. I paid for water and electric, no sewer. Very convenient to Hwy 2. I would stay here again. We camped at Frontier Bar & Campgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here one night. We would have stayed longer, but we were just there to try out the ATV trails. The campground is clean, with full service hook ups. We weren't too impressed with the ATV trails, so we probably wouldn't stay there again. We camped at Frontier Bar & Campgrounds in a Travel Trailer.

No Verizon or WiFi service. Sites 20-23 get satellite, but others are ify because of trees. Just stopped for the night and it was easy in and easy out. We camped at Frontier Bar & Campgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.

We were traveling through and the sites were great for what we used. It is not a destination site unless four-wheeling the state trails. We camped at Frontier Bar & Campgrounds in a Travel Trailer.

Don’t let the name of the park or the fact that it has a filling stations (diesel too) or that it is located at the intersection of US 2 and Hwy 169 put you off. This park is set way back from the road. It is clean and quiet. It is a big-rig friendly, no frills park with full hook up, pull-thru sites on packed dirt. The sites are level, long and adequately spaced with fire-rings and picnic tables. Some sites are in the open and are roof-top internet satellite dish friendly, others are nestled between trees and have all-day shade. Roads are packed dirt. It is ATV-friendly with access to trails directly from the campground. Staff is customer-oriented and friendly. We are full-time RVers and lived here for a week. We would return. We camped at Frontier Bar & Campgrounds in a Motorhome.
