Hixton / Alma Center KOA

If you're looking for a bit of history to go along with your outdoor adventures, consider heading for Hixton / Alma Center KOA on Highway 95 near Alma Center. This family-friendly RV park has an ancient Native American site, Silver Mound, within its park limits; you can see this plus songbirds, deer, opossum, and raccoons while enjoying your morning coffee. The park also has a heated swimming pool, a jumping pillow, and a fishing pond stocked with fish. Kids will enjoy the bike rentals. Other social events include wagon rides, ice cream socials, and pancake breakfasts. A campground store will help you stay stocked up on necessities, and the laundry facilities and restrooms with showers will help you to freshen up after your Alma Center motorhome rental has been set up.Most of the individual sites have pull-through access and up to 50 amp electricity plus Wi-Fi and cable tv channels to help you stay in touch. If you need to burn off some energy after your travels, there are a basketball court and pool table, a playground for the kids, and a horseshoe pit. The campground also has cabins, a camping lodge, and tent sites.Within a short distance of the RV campgrounds, you'll find Lake Arbutus and the Black River where you can enjoy fishing and boating, canoeing, and kayaking. The Trempealeau River is a popular spot for trout fishing, and if you've ever gone scuba diving or would like to try, Wazee Lake is one of the deepest lakes in Wisconsin. It's a former iron mine that was flooded. In town, you'll find antique stores and flea markets, museums, and restaurants if you choose to let someone else do the cooking (it is a vacation, after all).

The Great Outdoors

Search for an RV in Jackson County, and you can choose between a wide variety of rental RVs to find the unit that is perfectly suited to you. You can use your motorhome rental to spend time in Augusta State Wildlife Area, a marsh and woodland preserve with hiking trails and gravel roads that allow access to the park's interior. A small part of the preserve, located near the city of Augusta, consists of central sandy plains that form slowly rolling hills, while most of the terrain is lowland peat and marsh that was likely formed by glaciers. The marsh areas make this an ideal destination for bird watching and wildlife viewing; hunting is allowed, so you should exercise caution if you're here during hunting season.Black River State Forest, just north of Tomah, is a multi-use refuge that provides the public with some outdoor recreation opportunities. You can come here to enjoy picnicking, wildlife observation, hiking, and biking; however, conditions on the trails can vary significantly from sand and gravel to grass. Hunting and fishing are allowed within the forest with the appropriate licenses; you can stay here with the Alma Center travel trailer rental if you wish, but a permit is also required for camping.Another potential destination for you is Castle Mound Pine Forest, slightly more than 15 miles from Hixton / Alma Center KOA. This sandstone butte rises above the surrounding sandplain and hosts a variety of different tree stand species with minimal undergrowth, making for some lovely scenery and attracting a multitude of resident bird species. The forest has an observation tower at the top and center of the mound where you can look out over the landscape below.

Exploring The Area

As you're enjoying yourself in the great outdoors, be sure to spend some time in the cities and seeing what they have to offer. Northwest of Hixton / Alma Center KOA, Osseo has a good supply of restaurants and cuisines on hand, including one venue that serves up Norwegian and Scandinavian food (you won't see that very often). If you find yourself dining here, be sure to try the Denver lefse wrap and leave some room for dessert (or have your leftovers wrapped up). Osseo is a small town with a local vineyard and winery that has a tasting room at the top of a ridge; you can sample the products and enjoy the sunset if you time your visit right.Southwest of Hixton / Alma Center KOA, Blair is a smaller village with great heart, some good restaurants, and the kind of small-town vibe where even the deer drop in for a quick visit. If you stop here, you'll also find a good winery and restaurants with local Wisconsin-style food and friendly staff.If you're looking for the perfect combination of nature and city life, you don't need to look any further than the state of Wisconsin, and Hixton / Alma Center KOA is the perfect embodiment of that balance of both worlds.

Questions about RVs?

Q.

What type of RV should I choose?

A.

Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Q.

Do the RVs have bathrooms?

A.

Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


Q.

How does check-in work?

A.

Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
