Wisconsin dells camping advice

Looking for advice on campgrounds in the dells. Must be full hookups, so it appears state parks are out.

Prefer something that feels like camping, not a parking lot. Good for families.

Ideas?

Will be next August.

Jeep, we stayed here last year.

We enjoyed it and there's a lot of things for kids to do.
Its out of the dells a little bit but the drive didn't seem far at all.
We would stay there again.

We are interested in visiting the Dells next year too. Love the Dells, yet it's been years we've camped there and are looking for full hook-ups as well. It appears as though Merry Macs Campground does not have sewer connections, so the search continues.

They have a dump when you leave station.

We camped there for 4 days and three nights with 5 of us with out dumping.

You're lucky to have the larger holding tanks.

wow - 3 grey tanks?!? Even with 2 - we can only go 2 days with showers. Or one day if I don't turn the hot water off when my daughter is in there....

Why do the Wisconsin State Parks not offer full hook up?

Anyone familiar with Stand Rock?

I live not too far from the Dells. Stand Rock is nice. Jellystone is nice, crowded, crazy with kids, full hookups. Holiday Shores, as well as Arrowhead. Sherwood Forest is also one. There are a couple that are right in the heart of the Dells, but are all pavement, on the highway. Do not think that is what you are looking for.

We were just at Jellystone in the Wi dells. We do not recommend it at all. The traffic noise was so bad from the hwy and it was constant. My ears rang after we left. Pool area was ok, but constantly crowded. We went into the dells to mini golf because they wanted too much for a crappy 9 hole course. Staff was not very friendly and the whole weekend kids only saw yogi once. For the price it was not worth it.
