I agree with everything Esti Tierney says. Packed campground - endless sound of golf carts going around and around. We were there on a non holiday weekend and it was wall to wall people. I get the feeling that this is a fun place for locals to get together who aren’t concerned about COVID. Teenagers are zooming around on golf carts and having a ball. Great for them - not as fun for us. Our kids loved the pond - it isn’t as big as it appears on the ads. If you go I suggest wait to swim til after 4. Weekdays are better. No lifeguards. We watched our kids (9&10) like a hawk - lots of kids were flipping off the inflatables and having the time of their life. I envied their bravado, but also worried someone was going to flop onto someone else. We stayed in a rustic cabin and the coach bus. Read details carefully - I didn’t bring the camp stove because I thought a stove range was included (my mistake). Wi-fi is non existent. When I asked about it staff was not surprised and not concerned. Bus seemed like a cool idea, but in truth it was dark and we couldn’t open windows. Both were overpriced for what we got. There are some cool, but worn out, bikes for kids to ride around on (for an additional price) and the mini golf is amusing in how worn out it is. We were hoping for a quieter place to enjoy some of the perks of the Dells - but this place feels like some of the cheesier parts of the Dells came to it. This amounts to a nice trailer park.

we went there with grandkids and their parents. They rented a very nice cabin. We used our motor home. Sites have in ground fire rings and wood for sale. Sites are very level and gravel for parking. Cement pad with picnic table. Lots of things for family to do including very nice pool area. Definitely in our to ten in the nation.

I am torn on the rating because this really wasn't what we were looking for, but I could see how it could be for some. If you are looking for any sort of remote, outdoor, relaxing experience - this is not it. If you are looking for more of that party vibe and like driving your golf cart around, perhaps this is your gig. This campground has very tight spots, including where the cabins are located. It honestly was the most packed campground I've been to in my life. People everywhere and little/no COVID-19 precautions. I will say that the swimming pond was neat for kids, though not as big as it looked in the photos. The water looked clean and well maintained. Again though - completely packed during the day. We stayed in Deluxe Cabin #3 for our one night. It was spacious and clean, and the fire pit area was somewhat private for being in the middle of this craziness. Ultimately we felt uncomfortable with how many people were here in a tight space. The owners were understanding and refunded the nights we did not stay, and that was much appreciated.

Awesome Campground!! We stayed in a deluxe cabin within distance for an easy walk to the pond. Perfect location, cabin was surprisingly spacious and there was so much to do for the entire family. The favorites for us were the pond, water balloon stations, biking and of course the ice cream and candy!

This was our second time camping at Smokey Hollow. The site we had was nicely sized and shady. We picked this site knowing what it looked like from the last time we stayed. All of the overnight sites are fairly close to the office and pond, which is nice because there are mostly seasonal sites here, but they kept most of the overnight sites as close to the pond as possible since this is where most of the campers want to be when it's warm out. The grounds are really nice here. All the roads are paved which I feel is rare at a campground. There is a decent amount of golf cart traffic, so the paved road eliminate dust. The store has everything you need including snacks, slushies, ice cream (soft serve and regular), drinks (including alcohol), camping/rv necessities and toys. There are tons of activities for the kids. Water wars, giant hot rod shopping cart rides, smart car trolley rides, water balloon wars, jumping pillow, play grounds, bike rentals, giant chess, dunk tank, other water games, DJ on the beach, movies at night. And I'm sure I left out some other activities. I should mention you need to buy a wristband to use the jumping pillow and bikes. I think it's $15, but that comes with 3 vouchers for ice cream or a slushie which ends up costing $7.50. So if you plan on buying ice cream 3 times, the wristband is actually only $7.50. One thing I noticed this trip that I didn't really care for was the day camp and field trips. Smokey Hollow hosts a day camp during the week. There are a lot of kids in the camp and they get there around 8am and don't leave until around 3pm. They congregate near the main playground in the morning which is where our campsite was and they are not quiet. The camp counselors also park by this playground so it's very busy over there. Quiet hours end at 8am, but that doesn't mean I want to wake up at that time. It would be nice if they kept the kids a bit quieter. And they bus in field trips from the YMCA and other places which is great for the kids and the campground, but they kind of take over the pond. It gets pretty crazy and loud. There was also some sort of girls sports team that paid to use Smokey Hollow's facilities for the day and they all parked in the 2 campsites on each side of ours, so 6 cars pulled up at once and about 20 girls were back and forth around our site all day. I would prefer to not have to deal with all the extra kids and people from the day camp and field trips. I usually don't complain about this, but the cell phone service here is in a dead zone, which isn't the campground's fault, but don't expect to use your phone unless you are on the campground's wifi which only works within about 30ft of the office. The Dells are only a 30 minute drive, so we usually go there once for the day. We'll definitely be back. We had a great time on both trips.
