Rocky Arbor Campground

If you're seeking rest and relaxation while RV camping, consider a campsite at Rocky Arbor Campground in Wisconsin Dells. At this rustic RV campground, amenities are basic, but exactly what you need without going overboard. When you camp at Rocky Arbor Campground, you can expect an authentic outdoor experience that you won't find in the city. The RV park has a restroom with flush toilets and showers, several vault toilets located throughout the park, water taps, and a sanitary dump station where you can empty the tanks of your RV rental. It also has a playground where younger kids can burn off some energy after a long trip.As you enter the campground, all internal roads are one-way heading in a counter-clockwise direction (the roads form a loop); each campsite is back-in only, and some of the campsites have electrical hookups. Once you're set up and settled in, you can venture beyond the campground to see what else is available. You'll find that you're only steps away from the Wisconsin River, a museum with railway memorabilia and train rides through the woods, and several golf courses where you can squeeze in a round while there's still enough light. The nearby town of Wisconsin Dells has several waterparks, a theme park, a wildlife park and interactive zoo, and much more.

The Great Outdoors

Book an RV in Columbia County, and you will be one step closer to a vacation you'll never forget. Start your epic vacation by heading for Dell Creek State Wildlife Area near Reedsburg. The refuge is comprised of several separate sections linked by Dell Creek; its vegetation is savanna, grassland, and forest, with some sections being used as farmland and trout streams winding throughout. It's a good area for birding and wildlife viewing, and for hiking, as the terrain is relatively level and not challenging. Hunting and trapping are allowed, so you should exercise caution if it's hunting season; in the winter, you can cross-country ski, but there aren't any marked trails for you to follow.Mirror Lake State Park is an outdoor recreational area that is open year-round from early morning until late in the evening and is a popular destination for those who enjoy camping. It has three separate campgrounds, and the campsites are nestled among stands of pine and oak trees, providing shade and privacy. It's also popular for hunting and fishing, both of which require state licenses, and for cross-country skiing in the winter. The park has a concession stand that is open seasonally and rents watercraft such as canoes and kayaks, rowboats, and stand-up paddleboards; you're recommended to make a reservation if you want to rent something as they go quickly.Pine Island Savanna State Natural Area is located along the Wisconsin River and is mostly floodplain savanna with small sand prairie patches scattered here and there. It has a river island with a stand of swamp white oak and prairie grass. The refuge is a relatively new natural area, having been established in 2007, and is open for a variety of activities such as fishing and hunting, hiking, cross-country skiing, and wildlife viewing. There aren't any restrooms or other structures on the property. Hiking trails may be paths worn by foot traffic or simply non-existent. Some activities such as camping, horseback riding, and rock climbing aren't allowed; you can contact park management for more specific information.

Exploring The Area

The town of Portage is small but has a lengthy history, having been incorporated in 1851 but going back much earlier. It was named for its surrounding lowlands, which made portaging between water bodies relatively easy. Today it's home to several museums which celebrate the area's history plus some important landmarks. You can come here if you enjoy shopping or if you have a passion for the arts, or if you're looking for some family-friendly activities; it has a state-of-the-art movie theater (with reclining seats), a skate park, and a ski hill which you can hike in the summer. Portage is a good choice for dining out with its long list of establishments; most of them serve typical American-style food, but there are a few alternative cuisines on hand and a reasonable number of places that serve breakfast.Oxford is also a relatively small town with some opportunities to shop and a small but sufficient restaurant scene with cafes and pub restaurants serving home-cooked style food. The town's size makes it an ideal place to relax or even take a stroll to appreciate the settings.Simplicity is everything when it comes to camping, whether it's retreating into the wilds of nature or enjoying the serenity of a small town. The campsites at Rocky Arbor Campground are ideally located between both, offering the basics you need while RV camping near Wisconsin Dells.

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.
