Overall Rating

Ottawa Lake Campground is within the Kettle Morraine Southern Unit in Southern Wisconsin. The Campground has numerous sites for both RVs and tents. Very standard WI state park camping, with paved roads and gravel camping pads. 30/50 amp hookup. Clean bathrooms and wells for water close by. Fire wood for sale at $6/bundle. Free fishing poles available to fish in the lake. Numerous activities for kids including swing sets, swimming in the lake and various learning actives about animals, bugs etc.

Most of the sites are flat but there are a few that were pretty slanted and might be problematic for larger rigs. The sites along the east side of the grounds back up against HWY 67, a quite busy two lane highway with lots of traffic. If road noise bothers you, avoid these sites. The good news is that if you're in one of these you can sneak out the back, cross the road and get access to the Moraine Ridge Trail - which then leads to Scuppernong trails and the Ice Age Trail. Otherwise you have to drive to the trailhead park entrance and pay a fee. Hikes run from 3 to over 10 miles. The trails are excellently maintained and well marked and range from easy too advanced. True to Wisconsin, I didn't see a single piece of trash on my 6 mile journey. Luckily I didn't see any ticks either!
