The showers and restrooms are clean. The water points are numerous and well maintained. The scenery is mixed with woods and prairie. Many trails to hike and many species of wild life.

We camp here frequently, as we live 1/2 hour away. Bong is a long, narrow park with prairie & wetland vegetation; it is built on what was going to be an Air Force base, but after grading for the runway, the govt. changed its mind. Campsites are large, well-spaced, and some are fairly private due to trees and shrubbery. Some sites overlook prairie & small lake; those along top of hill can be windy. One loop of CG has electric sites (20/30 amp) and the others have no hookups. Water available at various stations in the CG, but not at individual sites. The 100 and 200 loops have showerhouses w/ flush toilets; other loops have pit toilets only. Most elec. sites are reservable, with a few left first-come, first-served; quite a few non-elec. sites are also reservable. Group sites (no utilities) also available. Park is popular with locals; grassy hiking & horseback riding trails are convenient to the 200 loop, with others close to the visitor center. Day-use area of park (separate from CG) hosts hunting dog training, ATV/motocross, model planes and rocketry; hunting is allowed in the park in season but not near CG, which is open all year (water turned on only mid-May through mid-0ct.)

We just returned home from spending the weekend there. I would not recommend this campground to anyone. We stayed in the 100 loop of Sunrise Campground. The pros: They had a nice swimming beach and some very gorgeous scenery. The lady who worked in the Visitors Center was very pleasant and very attentative,she was the only person at the Park that really seemed to care. I am sorry I didn't get her name, but she is a very sweet woman. The cons: They allow alcohol in their park. This made for very loud nights of people talking and yelling not to mention some very lewd behavior in the open at all hours. Had someone attempt to break in to one of our vehicles, though they didn't get anything as we were still awake at the time and shone a flashlight in their face. Park Rangers (Wisconsin DNR) came after Racine County Sheriff's Dept, had contacted them. This park does not give you the Rangers contact information at all. The Rangers wanted to blame budget cuts for lack of protection in this park. From 11pm until approximately 8:30am they did not even patrol the loop that we stayed in. We also noticed that on our first night there, Kenosha County Sheriff Police were in the loop with some of the activity going on. I would not recommend this park or its campgrounds for anyone who is camping with small children or family. It's sad to see when a state allows its campgrounds to turn into party central for some of the rudest people I have ever encountered in my 30+ years of camping.
