Q. “My question is this, we have four very well behaved children but have kind of “grown out” of our pop-up. Would you have any objection to the placement of a small dome tent on our site (kind of like an extra bedroom) for our two oldest daughters?”
A. Sorry! We only allow “one” tent or camping unit per site. You could try to reserve the site next to yours to accomodate your children or try to make room in your camping unit for them.
Q. My sister and I want to take our kids camping using only one camper. Do we have to get 2 separate sites?
A. Our policy states that each site is available for two adults and four children. If you have an adult friend also come with and she has kids, under 18, then the third adult on the site would pay $15.00 overnight fee and $3.00 per child (Ages 4-17).
Q. “Hi, this is Bob Jones from Racine. A bunch of us went to Parkside together this Spring, and we’re looking for a place to camp to celebrate the end of the school year.”
A. We are a “Family Campground” and prefer not to cater to groups. While we understand that the Parkside students are probably very nice people, they would be camping for an entirely different experience than most families are looking for.
Q. “I would like to reserve 8 regular sites for my group.”
A. Okay, but the rules still apply. One family per site. If your plan is to have a group of say 12 families camp together on a total of 8 sites, it won’t work! Each family must be registered separately and their site of record should be accurate. Each site holder must also check-in before occupying the site. When making reservations for a group, you must have all names, addresses, phone numbers, and number of adults/ children, for each site. A one night deposit is required for each site you reserve. Please see our deposits/refunds page for more information. Groups that are camping often have a tendency to forget that other people are camping nearby, and for some reason choose to ignore the 10:00pm quiet time. Be sure that your group is very aware of it. Everybody else pays the same as you.
Q. “What time do you close? My husband doesn’t get home from work until 11:00PM, so we can’t get there before 1:00AM”.
A. Please call the office at 262-857-7373- they will address your situation and give you instructions at that time.
Q. “What is the Check-in time?
A. For everything, the check in time is 12:00PM (noon) if available, because the check out time is 12:00PM, so if there is somebody on the site you may have to wait until they leave. This is usually not a problem, but you can call ahead if this is a concern.
Q. “We can’t get there before 10PM on Friday, so we would like to check in around 9AM on Saturday”
A. Our check-in time is Noon. You may arrive earlier if your site is available, but you will be charged $5.00 for each hour you are early. Our staffing is geared to the Noon arrival time. The charge is to help discourage early arrivals.
Q. “My Wife is bringing the kids, and tents up this afternoon, but I will drive up later. Is there a problem with the second vehicle?
A. Not at all. The rate includes up to two passenger/tow vehicles, and one RV. More vehicles cargo trailers may be charged $5.00 per day. Please try to arrive before 10:00PM, and be very quiet. You are still required to check-in at the office and obtain a vehicle tag.
Q. “Are alcoholic beverages permitted? Do you sell beer in your store?”
A. Legal intoxicants are tolerated throughout the grounds. You must bring it with you. However, we do not have a license to sell any beer or cigarettes. It is up to the campsite patron to control his/her campers behavior. We will not tolerate loud, lewd, or otherwise foul behavior. The legal drinking age in Wisconsin is 21. We are watchful of this.
Q. “What do you have available in your store?”
A. We carry an array of hot foods such as hamburgers, hot dogs, pizza (which we can cook for you!) We have deep-fried foods like fries, poppers, onion rings… Firewood, bagged ice, batteries, charcoal. There is a large selection of Ice Cream and Frozen Treats, Soft Drinks, and Candy. We also stock a number of grocery items- the kind of things you forget or didn’t have quite enough of (at convenience prices.) An assortment of clothing, beach toys, RV supplies, Gifts, and Souvenirs are also available. We also have Hot Coffee available at 9:00AM daily.
Q. “Do you have golf-cart rentals? Can we bring our own ATV, scooters, or kayaks?”
A. Sorry but we cannot allow anyone to bring in their ATVs, scooters, golf-carts, etc. due to our insurance policy. We do not want to be responsible for any injuries that could result. Our insurance does not allow us to rent the golf-carts out to anyone other than our employees. We understand other campgrounds have this, but it isn’t worth the hassle for us.
If you experience a problem with a neighboring camper or have any problems with violations of these rules, please don’t hesitate to bring it to the attention of any staff members. Your anonymity will be protected. After-hour problems should be reported by phone to the campground number 262-857-7373 or “flag down” the security patrolman.
