“Great privacy & shade, near WI Dells Water Parks etc”

Reviewed Jun 24, 2018

Overall Rating

If you love the attractions of WI Dells and State Park camping, this place is perfect! Love the shade when rent camping in WI summers :)

Stayed Thursday thru Sunday mid June. Weekend was packed, you should plan to reserve in advance if you need Friday or Saturday.

Showers are ok, plenty of hot water, not fancy. Pit toilets are as is but they stock the TP.

“A lovely wooded state park campground that is overpriced when you add in the park fee. ”

Reviewed Aug 31, 2016

Overall Rating

The Rocky Arbor State Park Campground is very wooded with good site separation and lots of vegetation/trees between sites to provide privacy. The park was nearly empty when we pulled in for a one night stay on a Tuesday in late August.

The sites are all back-in with a choice of electric only (30 amp) or primitive (no hook ups). There is a dump station and water fill, but no water or sewer hookups at any of the sites. Bathroom and a shower facilities are also available. The park has a nice walking trail and playground area for the kids.

You will definitely want to avoid the sites closest to I90 or be sure to bring your noise cancelling head phones. :) We were in site #42 (about the middle of the park) and while you could hear traffic, it wasn’t disruptive.

The biggest knock was the pricing and park fee. The electric site was $31 plus an $11 park fee good for just one day. We generally prefer state park campgrounds, but with so many camping options in the area I can see why this lovely park nearly empty. I doubt we would stay here again - at least not unless we were staying long enough in WI state parks to make the $38 non-resident annual pass worthwhile.

Proximity to I90 meant we had 4 bars of Verizon 4G.
