This campground is fantastic. Staff was amazing and friendly. Helpful with all our needs. Very wooded. Quiet peaceful evenings. Large gravel sites. Plenty of room between neighbors. Shower houses spotless and new. Plenty of hot water. Doggie waste receptacles all around to keep pets taken care of. No wonder people book a year in advance. We'll stay here again.

It was our first family camping trip. We brought the whole family including the dog. They made us feel very welcome. The staff was friendly, helpful, welcoming and provided us with great suggestions for things to do and see in the area. We were very impressed with the cleanliness of the grounds, bathrooms, laundry facilities, and showers. The camp store on property had everything we needed that we had forgotten since it was our first trip in the new camper. Can’t speak highly enough of this great campground. Lots of activities and games available on the grounds. Lots of great restaurants and hiking nearby if you want to venture off the grounds.

Cleanliness of campground and friendliness of staff can't be beat! Roads in area are relatively free from traffic, and safe to bike on. Not far from towns and nice places to eat. Also has nice hiking trails that are not challenging for those who just want to take a short hike.

Lovely facility filled with nice staff. Clean amenities. And fun for everyone. The yurts are a unique touch to any camping experience. Will likely be back to visit. I only wish they offered a yurt that was one queen or king sized bed vs two bunks.

This is the only campground we stay at in Door Co. We stay in a yurt and love it. The campground is clean and quiet. If your a big partier this is not the place for you. Nice employees and a little store with everything you'd need.

Yes the staff was great and facilities clean but please don’t be fooled that it’s door county and it’s all safe. I got my wallet stolen out of the main bathroom around 7:30 pm on august 31st. I feel sick about it so please even though it’s safe there can be dishonest people everywhere even way up here

This is not true. You lost your wallet while taking a walk and assumed someone stole it. Your wallet was turned in to the business down the road from us where you lost it. You even came back into the office to let us know that your wallet was found.

Nice location, great staff and store in the campground. We had very easy walking / biking access from our campsite to the Marina. We did not have a tow vehicle so having easy walking access to Lake Michigan was very important to us. The landscaping and flowers everywhere made this the most beautiful campsite on our 5 state Great Lakes tour. BTW, the shower facilities were the best on our whole trip.

This is the only campground we stay at in Door County. It's clean, quiet, great people at the check in, not to mention the store in the office that will have whatever you need. If your into loud music, partying, etc..this is not the campground for you. This is my favorite campground that I have ever camped at.

Wanted to get the kids out tent camping for the first time and this place did not disappoint. Bathrooms and showers were clean and the campsite provided our own private area. We had electric and water at our site for convenience, but you definitely don’t need it if you are in a tent. Great home base to explore other parts of door county. My daughters loved walking to Rowleys bay from the campground to see the lake. Can’t wait to come back again.

We are very new campers and this was the perfect place to fall in love with camping! That said, I met a few people who have been coming to Wagon Trail for many years! Staff was incredibly friendly, bathrooms were incredibly clean (showers had good pressure also!), the campsite was clean and the quiet hours are observed. We tent camped and did not opt for a site w water or electric and that was fine for our three nights. We used outlets in the lounge to charge our phones. The store is well stocked with things we might have forgotten or not known we needed! They also have games to lend out. There is a nice playground for kids also. The site had a fire pit and a grill on the fire pit. Firewood is readily available to purchase at the on site store (with free kindling!), at Piggly Wiggly or roadside. Already looking at dates did next year!
