"Deluxe" cabins are very over-priced. "Deluxe"??!?!.....the bathrooms don't even have a sink!! They were VERY dirty with cobwebs, dust, dust bunnies and grime everywhere The silverware was dirty and sticky. The kids parks were littered with garbage and broken beer bottles. I had to complain TWICE before an attendant came to clean it up. The golf cart rentals are ridiculous!... More

We locked in a last minute reservation at River Bay Campground, not having visited the Dells in over 10 years. The campground is located about 10-15 min from the Dells' downtown and is about 5 minutes further to the Chula Vista Waterpark (which was included with our 7-day stay). We arrived just before the 4th of July crowd and left... More

This is not a family friendly campground, it is a "party campground". Bar stays open til 2am, quiet hours are not enforced, bathrooms and pool water were dirty throughout our stay, office staff is rude and unprofessional.... I really could go on and on with not one positive thing to say! The moral of this story is DO NOT STAY... More

We stayed for 3 nights over Labor Day weekend. This is not a family campground. The campground has a Bar which DOES NOT abide by the quiet times as they have Bands. If you into partying all night this is the place for you. As for our stay, I was woken up each night by partying into 4 am as... More

We spent labor day at the Campground in one of the rental units. In the beginning when I made an online reservation for a less expensive rental unit, the email said my reservation was confirmed and someone would be contacting me. I didn't hear so I called. I was told "oh no, that unit was rented months ago" I then... More

I contacted Rhonda back in March of this year to talk about planning a sort of "rally" for our club of jet ski enthusiasts. At that time, I figured on 20 or 30 people attending. By the time of our event, which was held June 1-3, it had grown to about 85 people, but Rhonda and her staff handled it... More

We really wanted a place to camp where we could access the upper Dells waterway with our boat. River Bay fit the bill perfectly. The owners are very friendly. The campground was clean. The pool is very nice. The bar is cool and a lot of fun. If that's not your thing, ask for a site away from it though... More

After reading some of the reviews i was a little apprehensive BUT, we didn't have any of the problems the others had. We had 2 campsites for RV's that half of my family stayed in and got the 3 bedroom Cabin which was very spacious compared to others. It had a nice yard with a fire pit and deck with... More

I could write a book on all the issues that happened. Rude owners, specificly Rhonda! Very unorganized, very unprofessional and was given the impression that this place is run very shady. Cash for everything, gratuity charged on everything because, I quote, "that is how we pay our employees". Gratuity is expected on food and beverage, not reception areas. We were... More

Beware. Cash only but will charge credit to reserve. Garbage piled to waist near pool and gameroom. Smells as good as you would imagine. EXPENSIVE for nothing. Chula is not great, go to Noah's Ark for a cheaper more fun park. RUDE ladies at desk!!! Tent on site next door was 2 inches from ours!!! I am not exaggerating! Go... More
