Our family had a seasonal campsite at Crockett's Resort for many years. When we first came to the campground, we thought that we were at the bottom of a good thing since Ho-Chunk owns the campground. WRONG! We stayed with the campground thru all the management issues that the campground had. The current managers--John and Nancy--were seasonal campers that took over the management position. They have nothing better to do then to sit in the store or on the front porch and gossip and complain about other campers/seasonals and Ho-Chunk. They tell other seasonals who has paid their bills and who hasn't. It's no one else's business! I have always paid my bills on time and followed the rules of the campground so I don't care to hear this. Let's start thinking about why people avoid the store. I agree with the fact that John and Nancy will be your best friend when you first move in and from then on, it's down hill.
The cleanliness of the campground leaves little to be desired. The bathrooms are always a mess. You could go a whole weekend and never see John or Nancy stop in to check on them. The pool area is a disgrace. There are weeds coming thru the cracks in the concrete. The pool always has scum on the bottom and you never smell chlorine. The patio furniture looks like Culver's regects. Before managing the campground, John and Nancy always complained about the weeds around the "gate house" at the entrance of the campground. Since John and Nancy have managed the campground, the weeds around the gate house are just as overgrown as always. The canoes and paddle boats and old and nasty. I agree with the pot holes on the roads. Crockett's did not put in the new road up to the boat launch, nor did they put in the boat launch. The DNR did that. It is now a public road and a public boat launch. Don't be fooled. John has always complained about keeping up with the mowing. Plan your time accordingly and the mowing would not be such an issue. There is always garbage, cans, etc. on the sides of the road.
One person responded that there are plenty of activities if you care to participate. Yeah right!!! They have activities only on holiday weekends and it's always the same karaoke group--Brothers Rock. We learned to accept to come up with our own entertainment.
The electrical is outdated and old. You can't keep food in your freezers because the power goes out weekly. The funny thing is, that if we were up for the weekend, the power never went out unless there was a horrible storm. We could leave on a Sunday and come back on a Friday and our clocks would be blinking and there weren't any storms durning the week...Hmmmm??? This was almost on a weekly basis. Also, the cabins are disgusting! A little power washing would do them some good.
The only reason that we stayed so long is because of the size of the campground, the size of the sites and the golf cart trails.
