We booked a water/electric site and, upon arrival was told our site did not have water and no other sites were available. When I asked for a refund, I was told that the owners were at dinner and wouldn't be back for an hour. Then we were told that the road around the campground would not accommodate our 30' rig. So, even if we decided to stay, we could not have gotten back to the site the booked for us. The front desk person took my phone number but I have not heard from anyone. We had been driving all day and needed a site to sleep. Very bad service and sites for anything more than 30 ft. We camped at Northforest Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice place to spend a couple of nights. During the week, only two other campers in the campground: was nice and quiet. No big issue, but after staying in six other campgrounds, this one was the only one that had pay showers, assuming to save money. (But yet the men's urinal ran 24/7?)

Very friendly and courteous staff. We camped at Northforest Campground in a Tent Trailer.

.We called this park after showing up at another nearby park at which we had reservations and discovering that they were under a county boil order for contaminated water. We were therefore delighted when the nice lady we got on the phone at Northforest told us to come on in!

They had a very nice playground for kids, shuffleboard, tennis courts, mini golf, and a nice beach. We were in a pleasant area with forest and a lake - the campground was nice and quiet. We camped at Northforest Campground in a Motorhome.

The park is 12 miles from Rhinelander and about the same distance from Tomahawk, so whatever you need to shop for can be found in one of these nearby towns.

The campground is far off the beaten track. The road to it is gravel and almost a mile from the "main" road.
There were a lot of seasonal campers there. Great CG for families; playground, swimming, miniature golf, and a sort of hayride.
Sites are mostly grass. The sites they use for transients are mostly on the ends.
Wi-fi was okay. Cell reception was acceptable. Satellite depends on your site due to trees.
My main issue with the CG was the electric. There was a single box for 2 sites, both 30 amp. My neighbor for the one night I was there was in a Class A. The circuit breaker for the box (a couple of sites away) kept blowing. The manager showed us where it was and I reset it a couple of times, the breaker was Hot to the touch. Not a very good set-up. There were no sewer hook-ups in the transient area and they charge $7 to dump. We camped at Northforest Campground in a Travel Trailer.

It's a trek to a store so make sure you have what you need before you go the the CG.

Easy drive from WI 17 & US 8 via good county roads; last half mile is well graded gravel road. Campground was very quiet on week nights. Camped in a 35 foot 5th wheel on pull through site R, which is sand/grass with no shade. Site is wide & level with plenty of room for truck. Roads are gravel. Good over the air TV; good WiFi reception. Bath & laundry houses are clean. No pool. Volley, basket, & baseball courts & fields, miniature golf course. Playground. Small beach & boat launch on Pickerel Lake adjacent to campground. Camp store is minimal & was often closed. Park is about 11 miles from Tomahawk. We camped at Northforest Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We spent one night in this campground while on the way to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. The location was farther from the main road than expected. However, the staff were very welcoming. We encountered a problem with our electricity hook up about 7:00 PM on a Saturday. A staff member responded promptly, and the problem was resolved. Our site was pleasant, but we noticed many sites that were quite crowded and located in a field. The park appeared to have many seasonal residents. Due to its location (distance from main routes), we would most likely not stay there again. We camped at Northforest Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice friendly campground. Swimbeach area for kids. Caught some small/tiny panfish from the pier, and threw them back for next time! We camped at Northforest Campground in a Motorhome.

A great RV Park! We enjoyed our stay there. The Staff was very friendly and accommodating. We were on site #78 and it was great. We are staying there again in September. We recommend this campground! We camped at Northforest Campground in a Travel Trailer.
