“Cabin stay”
Reviewed April 10, 2012

We stayed in one of the cabins with a family of five, and it worked out well. The cabin we stayed in was closer to the main building than most of the campsites. I believe our cabin was a little older than the others, but it was still nice. The floors could have used a good cleaning; the kids had black feet if they took of their shoes for even a minute. I was disappointed in the showers and the main building. A few of the showers did not drain properly, so we had to wait for one that did drain if we didn't want to stand in water from other peoples' showers. No one that worked at the campground was particularly friendly, which was unfortunate. The owners must live upstairs, and there was a lot of kids toys/junk in the stairwell. It just didn't look very professional.

This is a nice campground to stay at if you are looking to spend time on Washington Island. It is not the kind of place that has hiking or a beach, but it is a good spot to set up a homebase in order to explore and enjoy the island. Campsites are on the smaller side but they are wooded and adequate. There are also a small number of cabins available. We have never had trouble showing up and finding a spot, even on holiday weekends. The bathroom and showers are clean and free. The campground is family run and staff are more than willing to help you out any way they can. Firewood is delivered to your campsite for you. Miniature golf is a bit run down but tennis court is useable and there is a nice big field next to the main building where you can spread out and play any sport/game you want. Lots of room for kids to run around.

Washington Island Camping Retreat is a campground on Washington Island at the tip of Door County. The ferry ride across the lake to Washington Island takes about 30 minutes and the kids love it. You can get out of the car and sit up in the top of the boat and look at the islands you pass.

The campground is set back in the trees. The campsites are all wooded, and very beautiful. Our campsite was set back from the road, so it was like we were in our own little world. The woods were quiet, the campground was quiet, and Washington Island is beautiful. The bathrooms were the cleanest I have ever seen in a campground, the only downside was it was quite a hike to get to them. We used the car everytime we went up to the main building, which got old after awhile. If staying again, I would ask for a site closer to the main building.

I would recommend staying here and enjoying Washington and Rock Islands.
