The O’Neil Creek Campground is a good base for exploring Lake Wissota State Park, which encompasses just over 1,000 acres on the lake’s eastern shores. Boating and fishing are both popular activities within the park, and there’s a picturesque swimming beach where you can cool off during the summer months. Anglers can try their luck at luring walleye, northern pike, and bass, with crappies and bluegill also regularly caught during the winter ice fishing season. If you want to stretch your legs, you can go hiking along the Old Abe State Trail or follow the 17.5-mile hiking and biking trail that connects to Brunet Island State Park.

The trail runs for 23 miles through dense forest and past numerous kettle lakes, accompanied by regular sightings of great crested flycatchers, scarlet tanagers, and ruffed grouse.Drive in the other direction, and you’ll eventually arrive at the Five-Mile Bluff Prairie State Natural Area, which overlooks the meeting of the Chippewa and Mississippi rivers.

Adjacent to the Five-Mile Bluff Prairie State Natural Area is the Nelson-Trevino Bottoms State Natural Area, which is also a bird watcher's paradise, with regular sightings of pileated woodpeckers, blue-gray gnatcatchers, and broad-winged hawks.

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.
