We took the short trip yesterday (9/4/14) and had the river all to ourselves. The water was a bit chilly at first but great after a short time. Water is high so the going was easy. We have taken this trip as well as the longer one a number of different times over the years and have always enjoyed it.... More

We did the short trip on the Sunday of Labor Day weekend with our 7 & 9 year olds. There were plenty of 20 somethings drinking and having fun, but nothing that interefered with our enjoyment of the trip. Water shoes are a must. Flip flops would be useless. The water was a good height from all the rain, though... More

We went here with about 8 other families and had a mix of tents, RV's and pop-up campers. We arrived on a Wednesday and discovered there were not many groups there. Our site was level, clean and included an above ground fire-ring. The grounds are nice and well maintained. We stayed on the upper level of the campgrounds (not near... More

I read the mixed reviews before we went, but they did not prepare me fully for what we experienced here. This is essentially a Frat party on a river. I had made 2 phone calls, in which I clearly stated we were coming as 3 families, and the staff did not give us any warnings on the phone calls or... More

Although we did not take advantage of the campground or restaurant on this trip, we did have a really nice experience tubing on the Wolf River. We arrived mid afternoon and were able to do the 1.5 hour trip twice before the last shuttle went out at 4:00 PM. For a very reasonable fee, they supply a tube per person... More

We recently tubed down the Wolf River through the campground. It was four adults & two children, ages 6 & 9. The cost was $84. The river was packed with drunk people; swearing, women flashing, many people openly smoking pot & people even vomiting right in the river as you're floating by them. I have a 2nd home in Waupaca...

Lots of fun. No crowds. Boating, fishing, birding, botany. If you don't like any of these things, it's always perfect for just opening a book and losing yourself between the pages. what more could you want?

We went on a Saturday. The lines were long to sign the concent form, pay and get the tube. Recommend getting there early. The river is rocky, so water sandels are recommended. This is an activity were people do a lot of drinking, so I wouldn't recommend this for family or children.

The campground is really well kept. Check in was a breeze and the staff were really fun. A nice little "convenience" store on site if you forget the basic items. Loved the fact the locals sold campfire wood on the side of the road. We found a local who gave a great deal! Sites are very close together so if... More

Had a great time at this place on several different occasions. The campground is well kept and clean, staff is professional.. I look forward to returning many summers to come.
