This campground is mainly made up of permanent sites. The pool is very very nice and also has a kiddy pool. The staff was very friendly. They either have a band with DJ every Saturday night. The place seemed family oriented but was fun for adults as well. Definitely a place I would recommend. The Super Loft cabins are VERY nice inside. You can easily sleep 6 adults and 2-3 children in the loft. The Super Lofts by mud lake come with a free golf cart. One of the best campgrounds in the area. We camped here in a Campground Cabin.
Probably the most confusing layout of sites we have seen. Sites need attention, such as gravel and approaches and leveling and mowing. This was an anniversary celebration, but it did not seem they spent the time on the sites to prepare. Wonderful to have music provided and lots of excitement went with it. It was worth being here. We had rather rude treatment while sitting at the office signing up for a site, from people hitting the side of the RV and dodging in front with carts when we were going to the site. Then carts parked anywhere around the office and seemed to insist they had the right of way before walkers. Look out! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We camped here last year, rate reflects a Good Sam discount, and enjoyed every minute of our stay. We found the staff to be very friendly. I was disappointed the Wi-Fi did not work. I did ask the young lady at the desk and she admitted Tengo-Internet had not been very helpful resolving their problem. I figured there was not enough bandwidth for the number of prospective users, even though the park wasn't full during the week. This is the best park, in my opinion, in this area and we will stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Well marked park, packed dirt roads, level large sites. Easy access from Interstate 90. We were given a back in with full hookup under the trees. Office staff were very helpful. Park is large and clean - mandatory recycling - they give you 2 trash bags, one for recycle and one for general trash. Dog area is a wide open field, great for a dog that like to run. Our biggest complaint is they have a paper ad stating Free WiFi to all sites - turns out "free" is for only 1 hour, then you pay $5/day for Tengointernet. We tried to get on with the 1 hr free and had some of the worst connection speed in years (think dial-up slow). Girls at desk were not aware of the ad and had no idea what they could do to help (I suggested they credit me the $5 on my camping fee to cover the charge - nope). Camp store offers lots of items, mostly geared towards kids but there are some food and RV related things. Camp Kitchen / restaurant on site with standard fried foods and pizza - they say they deliver on Fridays but we weren't there to find out...Large number of seasonal units and high number of golf carts on campus. This was just a stop and go for us so it was ok. Price reflects Good Sam Discount We camped here in a Motorhome.
I'm giving this place a 5 because there are SOME good things about the place, but I doubt we'll be back as long as other options exist. Starting with the good. Location is nice, convenient right off I-39 close to some nice areas to explore. Madison, Janesville, Rockford, etc. There seems to be places on the river/lake that have some good entertainment and (we hear) good food. The park is clean and well maintained. Hookups are in good shape, don't leak, the sewer has a spring loaded cap on it, which is really nice. The roads are mostly gravel with some areas of concrete, there is a nice "hiking" trail that was really nice. Surprisingly nice in fact. The sites are mostly gravel with a few exceptions, but pretty nice over all. They have a camp store with slightly more than the basics, and a "grill" where they make fried fish, shrimp, and other bar-like food. It's setup like a snack bar rather then a "BAR" bar and wasn't too bad. Not sure we'd make a point of eating there again, but it would do in a pinch. They had a "free sweet corn" promotion going this weekend which would have been nice, but we were busy while it was happening. OH, and the "grill" delivers to your RV for free. We did that. Pool area looked nice, although it was a little crowded for our taste, so we didn't use it. On to the bad. The place is run by a gaggle of clueless teenagers more focused on cute boys or the novelty of driving the golf carts around rather then welcoming guests. Although friendly, they rushed through their work duties to get back to socializing, and in the process didn't ask about AAA or GoodSam discounts at the time of check-in. We went back to see if we could get our payment changed but were denied. While in line to check in, it's clear the teenagers had little training, and professionalism is not a priority. Rules, Rules, RULES and more rules. The first few pieces of paper we received were all "YOU MUST," "YOU CAN'T," and "DO NOT!", "Guidelines for an enjoyable stay." Nothing say's "Welcome" quite like a fist-full of rules thrust at you from the first meeting. Indecently, we were accused of having unruly dogs, that barked, wandered around, and defecated everywhere. Our dogs never made a peep. On the accused night, we picked up after them right when we arrived, and they sat under our camp chairs for the 2 hours we were outside on that night. Yet, we had a camp host banging on our RV door at 8am to let us know about how out of control they were. Other campers with LARGE dogs, wandering all over the place and actually barking didn't seem to be a problem though. (Small issue, but note worthy.) Sites are packed in. Little to no room. We look out our door, and it looks like a used pickup truck lot. People wedged in everywhere, trucks angled in all over the place. It's going to be a nightmare getting out of here this morning. This place is noisy, non-stop, kids running all over the place, golf carts zooming around everywhere, bikes everywhere. If you're looking for a relaxing, quiet place, this is not it. There was seemingly endless traffic past our campsite from sun up to well past sun down. They seem to have some organized events which we're not really into, but just added to the noise and chaos of the whole place. Summary: I don't see us coming back here. It's probably a nice place for families or groups of families that travel together, and people who use this place as their "regular" campground, but if you're looking for a getaway or even a quick hassle-free overnight, I think I'd look elsewhere. Like I mentioned earlier, the place is nice, and well groomed. It's just the employees, the atmosphere and the tight, TIGHT campsites that will prevent us from staying here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Price was included in rally fee. This is a first in over 150 reviews, I will say nothing good about this park. Our rally, 30 plus coaches had reserved sites with water and sewer over a year ago and they basically sold some sites out from under us requiring some people, me, to not have full hook ups even though they paid for them and expected them. Their "I'm sorry" and $5 off the bill just does not hack it. Now for the facilities. Gravel roads and gravel sites, 50% seasonals, not all sites have full hook ups and most sites will not get satellite service. Not to mention most seasonals have golf carts. So lousy service and too much dust from constant golf cart traffic does not make a resort experience. This is not a resort by any standards. It is an average campground at best. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Wanted to stay near Lake Geneva in a decent park and this was about all we had to choose from, forty miles away. Being seniors we did not need it to be kid friendly and it truly looked to be. Lots of kids and a nice pool. A little noisy later in the evening but it eventually simmered down. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a nice campground. Expensive, but we stayed for a week so it lowered the cost quite a bit. The only reason we didn't give it a 9 or 10 is that our spot was not level. When we walked through the campground you could tell most of the gravel sites were not really level. We had heard this complaint from others. Considering they had to build these sites up anyway, I don't understand what the issue is with just getting it right. We liked the campground and the staff, and would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice place for overnight stay. No cable and only one hour of free wi-fi keeps from being a 9 or 10. Quiet, nice place for kids, lots of room for pets (although not fenced). Mostly gravel roads and sites. Would stay here again, but only as an over-nighter. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is our second stay at this park. It's good for an overnight. Has seasonal campers. It's a little pricey for what you get: no cable TV, Wi-Fi is free for an hour, then it costs money. Has gravel sites. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very well looked after park. Grounds are well groomed. Staff was very nice. They do have some very strict rules on pets which is part of the reason the grounds are so nice. Site was level, Wi-Fi was fast and the shower house was the best we have ever seen!! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed here during Memorial Day weekend. Campground was clean and reasonably well laid out. Sites were decent in size. We stayed in a 40 ft Class A and had plenty of room. Store was really nice and the playgrounds were excellent. Also had some excellent children's activities. Most of the campground is for seasonal rentals, but they were all very well maintained. Only complaint was the pool was way too small for this size of campground. It was so crowded we would not let our children swim in it as we were scared they would get hurt. One day, when it was 90 F, they even closed the pool and drained out half the water. Maybe it was contaminated from all the people the day before. We probably will not stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We loved everything about this campground! We stayed here over Columbus Day Weekend which was their Halloween Weekend. There were so many activities for the kids that my 3 children and our friends children were never bored! This is one of the cleanest campgrounds we have visited. They provide garbage bags for waste and pick it up too. The Bath Houses were immaculate and very nice. It is very easy to find. You can hear the noise of traffic on the interstate but it was not horribly bad by any means. Everyone was friendly and we can wait to go back again next year! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We have stayed at this park a few times. It is clean, well kept, nice atmosphere. Staff is very accommodating. There is garbage pickup at your site, and planned weekend activities for those that choose to join in. There are a lot of park models, again well kept up. There are nice restaurants accessible in town that are right on the river. Some sites were a little uneven, leaving our tires off the ground when we tried to level. In my opinion, it is a little pricey for FHU pull-thru even with the amenities offered, however in spite of that we still choose to go there. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is one of the cleanest campgrounds we have ever visited, but a little pricey. The restrooms, pool area, and laundry room were spotless. Hard to keep the dust down on the roads. On weekends kids are allowed to run wild, kicking up more dust with bicycles and rented carts. The adult hours for the pool was a nice touch. It was a little difficult to position our 5th Wheel in our site and still be able to reach the sewer and open both our slide-out and awning due to the proximity of a large tree. A little pricey for a mature couple such as my wife and I; for the price I would expect cable TV and free Wi-Fi, although I can see how a campground like this with all the amenities for kids would be a good value for families. "Smitty" was awesome; he worked non-stop keeping the grounds perfectly maintained and was also a great source of information. Elmer's mobile produce cart was an added bonus! Overall a good experience, but definitely more suited for families with kids than a couple wanting a quiet camping experience. We would stay here again during the week, but not on weekends or during summer vacation when there are too many kids for our taste. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Good park for an overnight. Their premier sites are very few, and not a tree around them. Very small cook-out area. The campground is in the middle of a cornfield, that's all you see. Interior roads are pretty muddy, little gravel if any. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Loved this park. We stayed in a back site close to the bathrooms. The grounds are clean and the staff was very friendly. We enjoyed the pool and hottub and our grandchildren enjoyed the crafts and activities during the day. Only disappointment was having to limit both our and our grandkids' time at the pool area because of all the cigarette smoking. Stricter rules regarding smoking at the pool area and enforcement of kids in the hottub would be appreciated. Keep up the good work and we hope to be back next year. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Positives: Easy access from freeway. Friendly, helpful staff. Beautifully maintained campground. Heated pool and hot tub. Large, easy to access level pull-though sites. Some sites gravel, some cement. Seasonals/permanents in separate section. Lot's of amenities for kids. Negatives: The only negative was that they charge for internet service. We really liked this park! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Large facility that was packed on the one weekday night we stayed there. 8X8 tent size restriction, many campfires, long sites. Very much big rig friendly and Good Sams discount. The park brochure indicates a charge for WiFi. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This RV Resort is geared for children and over priced. When asked for the price for the night (Thursday) we were quoted $44 and when called back to verify weekend openings and price, we were still told $44. Not until after we were all set up at our site did we look at the "weekend" price of $54! The pull through gravel sites are not as level as they claim but they are spacious. The laundry, showers, and restrooms were clean. I was pleased when the adult swim time was enforced and the children were asked to leave the pool. Although this resort was OK, and the employees were fairly pleasant, we will not return due to the misrepresenting of the price. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very kid friendly and warm and welcoming campground. Bathrooms are fantastic and it has private shower/bath stalls. Would highly recommend this campground over any area campgrounds. We also went back in June. We'll be back in September too! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

This park is extremely overpriced. We camped there in a buy1/get1 weekend, but the regular rates are $40.00 a night and up. There are extra charges for guests, additional vehicle. They advertise wi-fi, but it is $5 per day. If you have to cancel, they charge $10 fee even if you cancel months in advance. It seems to be the type of place that wants to nickel and dime you to death. Sites are close together and there is no beauty here. They do have a pool and a hot tub, but that's about it. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Staff was very friendly. Had a dead battery in our tow vehicle and they called for a jump. Very nice park and area. Would like to stay in park for a while and explore area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A bit over priced $$$. I would like to see about $5.00 lower. Clean and enjoyable. A weekly activity from 1/2 price weekend, crafts fair, Rock N' R' weekend, a Neil Diamond impersonator was Excellent. At harvest time fresh vegetables may be purchased by a visiting local farmer. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

After reading the rest of the reviews posted here I was left scratching my head if we visited the same park. We are looking at getting a seasonal site after spending a few years being “vagabond” campers. We particularly like the Milton area and had found Hidden Valley on a web search of the area. I had called in advance of our visit to get particulars on the “resort” and was told that they have a waiting list that will not possible be filled until 2011. At that time they will be adding another 100 sites to the “resort”. None the less, we decided to stop in and visit when we were in the area over the weekend. If we liked it enough we would get on their waiting list. Of course the sites are all level – it’s a made over corn field. The only trees to speak of are along the perimeter which is typical of most farm fields in Wisconsin. A huge open area with precisely angled parking spaces reminiscent of any mall parking lot. With about the same number of precisely placed very young sapling like “trees”. We saw the area where the 100 new spaces were going to be created – they will be of the same featureless genre. I know that we did not take a wrong turn while in the park and end up in a less desirable locale (we followed their map) and you can see from one end of the park to the other, including everyone and everything in between. But, to each their own. For some, this sort of sterile location is “perfect”. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Probably one of the finest RV parks we have ever stayed in. Grounds are immaculately kept. All the seasonal sites are exceptionally well maintained. Many well shaded sites. Staff friendly and courteous. Only downside is that WiFi is through Tengo which charges $5/day. Will definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We camped in the 'premium' pull-through section. This is an upgraded area along a hillside. The sites are level, landscaped and are concrete pads. This is a nice park. There is a section with quite a few seasonal campers, and it is well maintained. Trash is picked up daily at your site, and there is friendly staff. The store and check in area are nice. Not all sites are concrete and as well landscaped as the 'premium' sites. The other regular sites were gravel, dusty and more crowded. The 'premium' sites have no shade. For the price, we expected cable. They do not have cable. We enjoyed our stay and will return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Small sites. Even though they were small, they were level and easy to back in to. Facilities were very clean and this park was well kept. Had fun Halloween activities for the kids. Staff was friendly. Overall, a nice park. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
The grounds here are VERY clean and the facilities are very clean as well. The spots are spacious and the layout is nice. There are a lot of seasonal sites here... but there are a fair number of overnight spots available. My only complaint is that this facility recently added a lot of new spots and they aren't shaded yet - they are nicely landscaped - but the trees are young - thus if you are in the newer area in the middle of summer... bring your sun block! Beyond that, this is a great park - and we will return many times. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Can you say MUD? The campground is well maintained and clean - until it rains. Then it's mud everywhere because all the roads and sites are covered with road base, which is a combination of dirt and gravel. If they used just gravel, that would reduce the amount of mud that comes up. This is a very large park and well laid out. The gravel/dirt pads were pretty level side to side, but ours was carved out of a slope, so the exit was an upslope, which made it awkward to unhook and hook the 5th-wheel. The staff was helpful and polite. Overall, it's a nice and expensive park, but when it rains, there's no keeping the rig clean inside. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I give this campground a 10 for beauty, peacefulness, and attractiveness. For everything else, I give it a zero. Averaging these scores, I give the campground an overall 5. The park is beautiful but don't come here if (a) you want a level site--there aren't any, (b) want to avoid dust, dust, dust--everything is non-paved and dusty as all get out, (c) need cable tv because of the very limited local selection, or (d) want wi-fi. This place is affiliated with Tengo Internet--the worst RV Park internet system in the country. It was $4.00 per day (in addition to the $49.00 I paid for full-hookups without cable tv), and worked only half the time. If Tengo Internet was a horse, they'd shoot it. The place is gorgeous but overpriced and has all sorts of problems as outlined previously. You can do much, much better. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Our family favorite campground. The only area that could use improvement is the dusty roads. The pool is very clean and well maintained. The showers and restrooms are modern and clean. This campground is highly recommended, you won't be sorry. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
The family and I loved this private family owned campground. Wonderfully clean (sites, pool, grounds, bathrooms/showers), good wireless internet coverage, and friendly staff. If there's a downside, I thought it was overpriced in the gift shop area for "that one souvenir", along with the pedal cart rentals for the kids (those prices were ridiculous!). Plenty of things for the kids to do and a nice quiet, relaxing setting. I plan on heading there again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a nice park, a private park, with a state park feel. We were in a very wooded area, so we were not able to use our satellite dish and the local tv reception leaves a lot to be desired. The roads really need to be resurfaced and either be paved, or re-graveled. Too many kids driving around in rented golf carts on the weekends was also a drawback. I still would give it an 8 for it's cleanliness, pretty setting, great pool and playground and Frisbee golf. We would return if we are ever in the area again. We actually used it as our base camp for a business trip in Madison. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice park. Well maintained. The pool was going under some repair work while we were here, but it looked like a nice pool for the kids and adults. They had a live Elvis impersonater the weekend we were here and it was a great show. Lots of seasonal campers but they were friendly. Immaculate washrooms and showers. We plan on returning in September. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We over-nighted here and found this to be a relaxing stop-over. The pool was very clean and nice as was the spa. There are a lot of park-model permanent residents here and I felt somewhat of an outsider but everyone was nice. The sites are very large and there is a fire ring, although somewhat close to the parking area. You can hear the interstate from the campsite. We would stop here again. Wouldn't make it a destination, though. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice park however the unpaved roads make for sloppy vehicles and lots of mud. The
seasonal's are neat and tidy although less than friendly. Wi-fi internet access has been installed, works great. They are building a new laundry/bath house in the back of the park which should be very nice when completed. They are also adding alot of full hookup spots, some of which have been completed already. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
[ 7 / 10 ]
A truly wonderful location in the country. Be aware however, that all the full hookups are
for permanent residents, a none-too-elegant collection of mobile homes, park models, etc. Far from the amenities they claim. Don't ask about restaurants. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 9 / 10 ]
Nice area with lots of trees and spaces and recreation areas - friendly staff, charged for Day visitors on week ends. We camped here in a camper.
[ 9 / 10 ]
Very nice park, large spaces and friendly owner/staff. Pretty spot with well kept lawns. It's only one mile off of Interstate 90, Exit #163. We camped here in a camper.
This campground is in a good location and easy to find. It is located on a lake. You are able to put your boat into the water on property. We were in a gravel uneven spot that just fit our 40ft rig. We had 30 amp, water and sewer hook up. The spots are very close together not leaving a lot of room between spots as well as the cabins that are right across the way. They have to park behind your camper as there is no room. This park is without a doubt for full time seasonal people. They only have a few general camping spots available. One thing about his park is that there is a lot of traffic from cars and golf carts. The golf carts don't seem to stop for people walking and neither do the cars they own they park. Speed limit is 10mph. I never say any security enforcing anything. It was just crazy with all the golf carts that my children almost got run over on numerous occasions trying to get to the pool, the general store and the playground. I didn't feel safe letting them cross the road for fear of being run down. Bathrooms and showers leave something to be desired. A lot of noise at night with golf carts and people partying, screaming and loud music. More then likely we won't be going back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Mostly seasonals. Not well laid out for RVs. We were told it was laid out for park models. No shade. Hamburgers at bar/grill were fair. Good for one night only. Didn't use restrooms. Too expensive for what you get. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
