People stay at Sherwood Forest Camping and RV Park for the same reason they go to the Wisconsin Dells in the first place: Kiddos. Sherwood Forest must be packed in the summertime. Thankfully, I visited after Labor Day.
The whole park is set up with children in mind. There are play areas, a heated pool, water spray/play area, video arcade, outdoor movies, etc.
Bathrooms and showers appeared serviceable, but I did not see the laundry facilities.
The sites leave much to be desired. The area was expecting three inches of rain on the night of my arrival, and my friend inquired about drainage. We were informed that the sites at the top of the hill drained poorly, so we opted for the campground below. I am so glad we did. Just look at reviews on Tripadvisor about the drainage issues.
An off-season rate of $37 per night for full hook ups got me a pull through site, which was not paved. The site was extremely narrow. The park was almost completely empty, and I could not imagine what it would be like if every site was taken. “Refugee Camp” springs to mind.
The park at least made an effort to erect an enclosed dog park area, but the construction is poor, the property floods during rain, and it is almost impossible to open the gate, which was fashioned out of wood and chicken wire.
Tammys Tip: Beware when Sherwood Forest tells you that the park is “walking distance to town.” If you stay at the soggy upper campground, and if you walk three and a half blocks to a bridge, and if you then cross that bridge and water another four or five blocks, you will come to one of the main parts of town. The other part of town, where all the water parks and many restaurants are located, is not comfortably walkable.
