Decent country park near Madison. I wouldn't call it big rig friendly as it is tight getting in and out of the park. Big Rig capable would be a better term. No sewers at sites, but a dump station is available. Dirt and gravel sites and roads. Grassy areas for dogs. Not bad for an overnight stay. We camped at Badgerland Campground in a Motorhome.

Not a KOA, but this is the kind of place that wants to act like one. Has lots of kid attractions, pond, trampoline, golf carts, has an open bar on the weekends. Set up for seasonal s, and mom& dad, or Gran ma and Grand pa to bring the young kids camping. We were not impressed, and would probably not return. Also this is not close to anything. I would not say this is a bad place, just not what most seniors who are traveling are looking for. We camped at Badgerland Campground in a Motorhome.

We were cordially greeted upon arrival and guided to our site which was good for finding our way the first time. Temps were 87 degrees when we arrived and after setting up and turning on our dual AC, we lost all power. The owner was right on it and quickly found our section's main breaker had blown which concerned him because it was all new wiring and service. We decided to run just one A/C after that and didn't experience another outage. Access roads are gravel and a little narrow for larger back-ins but there is a generous amount of space between sites to help with maneuvering. Our pull thru site was easy to enter and exit, gravel and sloping upward as you entered. Patio is grass and they request no carpeting other than on the gravel which basically ruled out any carpeting. There is a mature tree between nearly every site so your rig isn't beat by the sun all day long. This can make satellite signals a little more challenging to find though. Water pressure was good at 40psi. There is a notice at the spigot informing you that the water tests high for nitrates and that pregnant women and the young should not drink it at all. While short term use of the water for drinking is reportedly not a problem, their advisory recommended using bottled water. Wifi is available for a fee. Our AT&T hotspot (and cell phones) picked up a couple bars of service so we used it instead. OTA TV reception was very good with all the major channels received out of Madison. There is a swimming pond with a sand beach and floating island for the kids. There is also a catch and release fishing pond that you can try your hand at. The park is very nicely maintained and the owners are very conscientious about that. Given that the nightly rate is comparable to many parks with full E/W/S though, we rate the park slightly lower because of the lack of a sewer port at the site and the water quality issue. Otherwise, we enjoyed our stay and would come back again. We camped at Badgerland Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice resort we spent 3 nights sites were plenty big spacious. We were able to get Over air TV but no WIFI or cell service. The drive way is a little difficult if there are more than one camper registering at the same time. Maybe best to unhook tow the driveway in is tight. The entrance is somewhat hard to see when coming around corner from south, there is no signage. If you see a propane fill sign slam on brakes and turn. Don't plan on using Verizon or internet there is none available. This is one of the only places in the country that we didn't have Verizon. We could not get Data or phone service. We camped at Badgerland Campground in a Motorhome.

Badgerland at first glance is quaint with lots of green grass and trees. There are several seasonal residents here and the grounds are well maintained. The CG is on the south side of Madison and is easily reached in just 10 minutes of so south of town. It is in the woods so if you feel you need civilization; you might want to go elsewhere. When we arrived on a Sunday, there was no one at the office but they require full payment 2 weeks before arrival. I see why now as you have to find your own spot if the office is closed so pay attention. There are no sewer hookups at the sites only electric and water so come empty or be prepared to break camp and go the dump station on site. There is a mobile pumping service which is an extra $15 or so. There is no cable TV and our local connections were patchy too. There is also no high speed internet and for what there is it cost an extra $5 per day. Overall the campground is pleasant and a little rustic. I will take full responsibility for not checking closer but it seems to me that the owners (new ones in March 2019) should make it more clear that you should dump your tanks prior to setting up, that there is poor internet for an additional fee and that there is no cable TV. These facts would have affected my decision to stay at Badgerland so buyer beware. There are no sewer hook ups and no cable TV. Wifi is extra at $5 per day and is low speed. We camped at Badgerland Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Campground is well cared for with lots of grassy areas. Our site was a large pull thru on grass with mature shade trees. Staff is very nice and helpful. There is a swimming pond and a fishing pond on the property. Both looked appealing. The swimming pond has a trampoline in the middle. There is a small bar in the campground open on Thu, Fri & Sat. The bath house was clean but pretty small. Would stay here again though if in the area. We camped at Badgerland Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed at eight different camp grounds on our 2 1/2 week trip. This was the most expensive one, but we have stayed here before and really like it. The sites are large and grassy. There is a cute little bar on site. The staff is helpful and friendly, as are the seasonal campers. There is a swimming pond with a trampoline in the middle of it, and a jumping pad on the beach. We didn't have kids with us so didn't use them but they looked fun for kids. It's a very quiet camp ground. We camped at Badgerland Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Cute little campground with very friendly staff and seasonal campers. Site was very long and level and nice and grassy along the drive. We stayed in a VIP site (which is their pull-throughs) and ours was an end site. This CG does not have a lot of sites and a bunch are seasonal and very well-kept. The property backs-up to a farm field and is quite lovely at sunset. We heard and saw Sandhill Crane in the area so that was neat. We were here for Father's Day and there were some activities including a pancake breakfast on Sunday morning (free for Dad). There is a little swimming pond in the CG with a floating trampoline which our kids loved. The water is a weird blue color but I'm sure it's a non-toxic algae control measure of some sort. On the Friday evening a strong storm ran through and took us by surprise. We swear it was a microburst as the down draft was intense and totaled our friend's awning while we were standing under it. The next morning we were standing around looking at it trying to see if we could fix it and a seasonal camper came by to help us. He didn't have the right tool so he went off and got the correct one from the owner. Very, very helpful and friendly folks here. We would stay here again.

We visited nearby Lake Kegonsa State Park to try out my husband's Father's Day gift--a new 2-person fishing kayak. A cute park, very clean, some hiking trails. The lake is frequented by many boaters and fisherman. The town of Stoughton is quaint, nice little houses, an Aldi and Walmart so many conveniences around.

We stayed here Labor Day Weekend. The campground is easily found (only a few miles from the highway). It is a very family oriented place. The other campers as well as all the staff we interacted with were very friendly. The bathrooms ($.25 per three minutes for the showers) were really clean! If you stay in sites around the lake please bring an extra electric cord and hose as the hook-ups are closer to the front of the site as opposed to normally in the back. No sewer connection, but they do have a dump station. It was great fun watching the kids as they laughed, danced, swam, played on the playground and hunted for frogs. The adults brought floats and paddled around on the water as well. Next time I'm bringing floats too! There is a fishing pond across the street which makes for a nice walk around the entire grounds. Also included is a small bar, a nice camp store and lots of activities. We camped at Badgerland Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The campground has been around since 2012. Staff is very nice and accommodating. Prices are reasonable. They have a variety of site types: rustic, 30 amp, 50 amp, VIP (pull-through). Bathroom facilities are always kept clean and well maintained. Swimming pond is spring fed and has a jumping trampoline during the summer months. There is also a fishing pond located on the north side of the road which is a nice feature. There is a small campground store with most of your basic essentials. They also have a small bar in the campground. We have been there for a couple of the event weekends, which were a blast. The event weekends have some activities that work for both adults and kids. I would recommend staying at this campground. We camped at Badgerland Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Please don't stay here, it was the worst campground experience our family has ever had. The owner of the campground is so unhappy never a kind word or a smile, he just acts like the customers are a bother and is SO rude. This campground is basically just a flat patch of grass by a farming field. There is no sewer hook up so we had to use the showers, which where filthy and smelt terrible. The campground garbage was full with bags all around the bin that where ripped open and the food was all over the ground, I suspect from an animal. There is a swimming hole on the property, it was too cold but the water was a greenish odd color with garbage in it, definitely, a no go on that. This man is just in the business to make money, does not take care of the campground and is just plain rude. We will not be a back and will not be recommending this place to any of our large community of friends in the camping world On to better camping and happy camping fellow RV'rs!! We camped at Badgerland Campground in a Motorhome.

This campground has a lot of seasonals but still plenty of spots for overnights. It is very quiet and well maintained. The spots are quite large and grassy with good tree coverage. The bath house is kept very clean. There is a small swimming pond and a playground for children. It is very close to Lake Kegonsa State Park and LaFolette County Park. The town of Stoughton is just a few miles and has a lot of neat shops and bars/restaurants. Another nice thing about this campground compared to others in the area is that it does not have a two night minimum on weekends. We stayed here on a Friday night as a halfway point on a long trip. We liked it it so much we stayed here again on the way home. We camped at Badgerland Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Campground has new owners and has been re-named Badgerlands Campground. Our premium gravel pull-thru site was long enough for our 40 ft motor home and toad and reasonably level. Roads inside the campground are narrow with sharp turns and low-hanging branches that made it difficult to maneuver our motor home. This is an older campground filled mostly with seasonals. Campground is clean and well maintained. Helpful and friendly staff. Plenty of trees, although none blocked our satellite dish that was luck. Good Verizon signal. We chose this campground by chance while traveling on I-90. Nice enough in its own way but not set up for over-nighters and overpriced for what we got. We camped at Badgerland Campground in a Motorhome.
