Wisconsin Riverside Resort

Just a few miles north of Governor Dodge State Park is a private campground we love Wisconsin Riverside Resort. This is a perfect RV park campground with a variety of RV amenities such as full hookups at camping sites, an onsite restaurant and camp shop. Dining on the patio is an extra special event that we don’t often get while camping. Riverside Resort offers many river activities including camping on a sand bar! Now, that is a unique experience! This camping trip took us to the Wisconsin River for fishing, kayaking and tubing down the Wisconsin River. This private campground is located only a half hour away from Governor Dodge State Park, so you can spend a day there hiking, and swimming too! The campground is located at S13220 Shifflet Rd, Spring Green, WI. For more information, click here.

Holiday Shores Campground and Resort 

If I had to pick one private Wisconsin campground that is our favorite, it would be Holiday Shores Resort in Wisconsin Dells. We spent two weeks at Holiday Shores which is right on the Wisconsin River and offers a beautiful sandy beach with a specified swimming area and inflatables, a heated pool, fully stocked camp store and food counter, kids club, and an endless list of activities. For the nature lover, it offers a front seat to the upper dells via the Wisconsin River, with watercraft rental (jet skis, ski boats, pontoon boats for tubing and skiing, paddle boards, paddle boats), boat slip rental and even personalized jet ski tours of the upper dells. For a secret hiking trail, go to site one right by the river, and you will find the trail head. This is actually on DNR land, and the hike is beautiful! If you have family members that just don’t like to camp that is ok, there are many camper, cabin and motel rentals available. Summer time is always a great time to camp but don’t forget fall in Wisconsin is beautiful.
