Wilderness Campground

West of Fond du Lac, Wilderness Campground is a family-friendly RV park where you can go camping in Marquette County. This spot offers you the chance to enjoy a weekend or weeklong vacation RV camping. The campground has a pool and a lake with lots to do for the kids and plenty of options for you to enjoy near Fond du Lac. For fun, there is a jumping pillow, a skate park, a swimming pond, and outdoor movies. You also have access to WiFi hotspots, free showers, two ponds stocked with fish, and big rig sites. There's also a well-stocked convenience store on-site.Camping options are as varied as the many RV rental options you have. Looking for a full hookup site for your rental RV? They have a lot of options to choose from. Just want water and electricity? No problem, there are sites with those too. If you aren't comfortable backing your campervan rental into a site, that's okay too, as they have pull-throughs that are easy to get into. You can top up your LP gas tanks here and use the dump station to empty your gray and black water tanks. After spending the day fishing, hiking, or on the beach going swimming in the pond, you can run a load of laundry in the on-site laundromat while you enjoy a hot shower.But this is only the beginning; there is so much more to do than spend your entire time here in your rental motorhome. There are plenty of things to do in the campground, such as hiking on the trails or taking part in one of the many planned activities. Or you can head to Fond du Lac, where there is plenty of shopping, lots of restaurants, and, of course, a good measure of nightlife to enjoy. This area was once home to several Native American tribes, including Kickapoo, Mascoutin, Potawatomi, and Winnebago.

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.
