I love the location of this resort. You can camp right on the banks of the Mississippi River! And you can walk over the bridge into the town of LaCrosse. There are limited food options at the resort store/bar (mostly bar) and the staff is unpredictable! Some very helpful; others "saucy".

We wanted to try a brunch locale on the water and were pleasantly surprised! Great food, big portions, cheap, and a surprisingly tasty Bloody Mary. I had a biscuit with 2 eggs and bacon--- delicious. You can dress it up and get it with gravy which my friends said was great, too. Best part: location and cool staff!

We camped for 2 nights at Pettibone. During the 36 hours that we stayed at the park, the bathrooms were never cleaned. It was so dirty that I couldn't stand taking a shower. I would only recommend this camp ground to people who have their own facilities. It was a pretty setting and I liked the size of the camp... More

Very nice campground with plenty of space between sites. The park was about 75% full however even if it were full there is good space to roam and not feel cramped in. Concur with previous rater that unless you have a pull through it is better to remove towed vehicle at check in line. The driving lanes in the park... More

Pettibone consists of two very long campgrounds located on an island just east of the US 14/61 Mississippi riverbridge from downtown LaCrosse. An efficient, multi-tasking bar staff in Pettibone's lounge/bar/campstore building handles check-in and operates the keypad entrance gate during the day. Unless you rent a pull-thru, you'll need to unhook any tow vehicles in their parking lot before you... More

This is the first time at this campground and I would defiantly come back. The sites were clean and spacious and have water, electricity and cable. The staff was friendly. I loved the idea of the concrete patios and the idea of being so close to the Mississippi, where we did some fishing. They have a playground and beach. They... More
