“Beautiful park, great location. AMAZING dog park nearby.”

Overall Rating

On our way south for the winter, we wanted to stop in Madison. The 4 county parks are the cheapest and closest campgrounds to downtown, so after researching all 4, we chose Lake Farm because it had the best reviews and best location. We got the last available spot, so make sure you call ahead (there is a rez fee).

It is a public park next to a well-used bike trail, so there will be passers-by, and they are welcomed to use the facilities, but they were no bother. And, as other reviews have stated, we did see a couple of homeless people hanging out by the restrooms, but at no time did I feel uneasy about them. I noticed one Rv’er even stopped by to give them some leftovers.

There is an incredible dog park nearby with a very large open area, as well as an even larger ‘back area’ of fenced-in hiking trails. It is easily the coolest public dog park we have been to so far. There is a $5 registration fee to help upkeep the park (annual passes available too).

The park only provides electric, but has a dump and fill station on-site. We did not use the facilities.

We chose this location because of the closeness to downtown Madison on a busy Memorial Day weekend. We got there and in checking the posted list of campers realized that someone else's name was on our site for our second night! Turns out there was a miscommunication (probably our fault) and we were only registered for one night. The staff was fantastically helpful in finding us another place to camp for our second night. Basically this is an open field with two camping loops and no trees. The spots are pretty level and pretty large. The big draw for us was the bike trail to downtown that ran right through the park - 5 miles to downtown. Bathrooms were large, clean and tidy. Showers were individual rooms and felt a bit like solitary confinement when you closed the door (or what I imagine that might be like), but the water was hot and plentiful and they were clean. Cell services was fine.
