“Central Location and Pretty Sites”

Reviewed Oct 16, 2017

Overall Rating

I stopped at Marathon Park to break up a long drive from the Upper Peninsula to Minneapolis, and was pleasantly surprised by the size of Wausau and this well kept city campground.

The campground is in a mature pine stand and attached to a large city park. Centrally located near the University of Wisconsin campus, the park has a mix of primitive and electric-only sites. It’s open through the end of October and I had the place almost to myself, sharing it only with an Airstream and R-Pod.

Looks like they have a host and reservable sites in prime season, but it was self registration in October. Called the posted phone number to get the bathroom codes and a person answered on a Sunday afternoon. Avoid the bathrooms though, if you’re in a rig that has it’s own.

Some road noise and there must be a rail depot nearby because I had about an hour of idling trains late at night.

All in all a clean, well designed campground centrally located in a bustling town. If you’re into art and/or birds, be sure to check out the free Leigh Yawkey Woodson museum.
