Camp sites were OK but not well maintained. Some trash around the site. Shared electrical boxes. Our box had only a 30A and a 20A. If the other spot had taken the 30A outlet then that would have only left the 20A which would not be enough for AC. We got limited WiFi coverage even tho we were close to the office. I tried several places around the park and coverage was no better. Don't depend on WiFi coverage if that's an issue. Water has a very hard mineral taste. Campground hosts were friendly but not attentive to complaints and what we feel was outright lying. Owner's brother and several others stay at the campgrounds in a run down Class C a few sites from the office. (Reminded me of Cousin Eddie in 'Vacation'.) They turn their radio on at about 10AM every day, place the speaker so it's blaring out a window, and leave it on all day, even when no one is at the campsite and often past 10PM. The radio can be heard 10-15 sites away. We complained to the owner, before we knew it was his brother, and he acted dumb like he didn't know there was a problem and said he didn't know who the person was. Owner said he would talk to security. That night at 10:45 PM, no one was in the campsite and radio still blaring, I talked to security who said the owner had not mentioned any problem. Security said he was just by the site to tell them to turn down the radio but no one was at the site. While talking to security the brother came out of the owner's place and admitted he had left the radio on but didn't think it was a problem. He then turned it down but during the next few days it would be blaring again all day long. Owner still refused to handle the complaint. We will not stay here again due to the lack of customer service and in effect being lied to by the owners.

The Dells is an older, established resort community and Sherwood Forest has been around a long time. There is a reason for its longevity. Nestled in the woods, but in the midst of all the activity and attractions, (it's walking distance to downtown) its convenient location yet seclusion offer the best of both worlds. The staff here are tremendously helpful and freindly. There is a "secluded area" in the back of the campground if you really want to rough it.(With electricity and water, of course.) But, it's a hike to the showerhouse. Nonetheless, you're surrounded by nature, not awning to awning with your neighbor. For bathrooms, unless you're close to a showerhouse, be prepared to use a portapotty. However, the showers are all private rooms, and plenty of them. There is a small gameroom, and nicely stocked camp store. In the front part of the campground, the sites are closer together, but still far enough away for privacy, for the most part. We liked the spot next to the playground. It was extremely deep and afforded lots of room.

We live close to the Dells, so we spent some time comparing the different campgrounds before we chose one to spend the weekend at. This one seems to be the best for the price. It is very clean, within walking distance to many of the attractions and the staff was friendly and helpful. Also, security was handled well. There always seemed to be an employee cleaning or restocking the restrooms. The lots are nice and shaded with a 'woodsy' feel. We will definitely return, probably very soon!
