You can also see glacial moraine from this spot in the park. There is plenty of grass to walk on as you visit several memorials to veterans of different wars and conflicts.

There are two RV campgrounds nearby that offer partial hookups, dump stations, and access to fishing.Just a short drive away in nearby Abbotsford, you and your family can get in a round or two of disc golf at Red Arrow Park or spend the day at Monk Gardens. The gardens cover 30 acres and have places to enjoy a little quiet contemplation in the Memory Garden or Memorial Plaza. Be sure you take time to climb up into the amazing Tree House, eat a picnic lunch in the Potager pavilion, or stroll through the Meditation Garden that is filled with a wide variety of uncommon plants.

The Nearest Big City

The nearest big city to the Mead Lake campground is Eau Claire, a rather unique city in that it encourages independent thinking and is home to a campus belonging to the University of Wisconsin system. The city was given its name by French explorers who were traveling along the Chippewa River, which had become muddy due to the rains. When they happened upon what is now called the Eau Claire River, one of the explorers became very excited as he declared, "Voici l'eau Claire," which translates into "here is the clear water."When you book an RV in Mead, be sure you take time out to visit the 1897 Clark County Jail Museum. Here you will find displays of law enforcement and military items. For 80 years, the jailhouse was used to house all prisoners in Clark County before being closed down. While you are here, be sure to visit the Victorian house that was home to Clark County sheriffs from 1897 until 1974. Here you will find displays of period art, books, furniture, and more. Saved from being demolished in 1980, the Clark County Historical Society set about restoring both the jail and house to their former glory, making it possible to open them to the public.At the end of the day when you return to your camper rental at Mead Lake Campground, you can always go swimming in the lake to cool off or break out the fishing gear to catch your supper. The lake is home to largemouth and smallmouth bass, panfish, walleye, and musky (but you'll have a hard time catching these monstrous fish). There are two boat landings you can use if you happened to bring one with you while camping with an RV.Whether you come for the peace and quiet, the fishing, or the local museums, your vacation starts with an RV rental near Mead, Wisconsin.

Questions about RVs?


What type of RV should I choose?


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.


Do the RVs have bathrooms?


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.


How does check-in work?


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.
