We chose New Glarus Woods State Park because it is on the Sugar River Bike Trail and near the cute Swiss town of New Glarus. The campground is small, only 18 sites in a heavily wooded area. There are no hookups (except the one handicapped site which has electic), no flush toilets, and no showers. The sites are well spaced, but the driveways are generally very narrow and some sites are not very deep. Site 6 was a good choice for us. Very private with a long driveway, but very narrow with many trees and a challenge to back in our small travel trailer. The ranger who checked us in was very friendly and helpful with any questions we had. The campground and entire park was very clean. Pros: Peaceful, small wooded campround. Private sites. Close to town. Connector trail to the Sugar River bike trail. Cons: No hookups. Only water fountains, no place to connect a hose. No dump station.

Nestled on top of a hill overlooking the Swiss town of New Glarus lies this small, but cozy, state park campground. New Glarus State Woods is best known for its "bike-in" campground which offers weary bicyclists off the Sugar River State Trail beautiful private tent sites immediately off the annexed trail. ew Glarus Woods also has 18 drive-in campsites as well as a group camping area. This was our second visit to New Glarus Woods, which is 27 miles southwest of Madison. I was looking for a campground near Madison for a Friday night to take four kids and after finding out Blue Mounds was full and Yellowstone was nearly full I discovered New Glarus had plenty of open sites. Other than the handicapped site (#4) there are no electrical sites. There are also no modern bathroom facilities, which means pit-toilets and no showers, which is sorely needed by bicyclists after spending a long day riding. But the campsites are very nicely wooded which provides shade and privacy. A perfect overnight destination on a last minute whim! BEST DRIVE-IN SITES (ALL NONELECTRICAL): 2, 8, 6, 16, 12, 9, 13, 11, 1, 5, 17, 3, 10, 18
