“Wonderful lakeside campground!”
Reviewed 11 July 2011

My family just returned from a 7 night stay at Lake Chippewa campground & had a great time! We stayed over the 4th of July week so it was pretty busy there the whole week. We camped at a water front campsite in our pop up camper. the sites are all nice a big & most sites are pretty private with brush or trees seperating the sites. The campground has alot to do to keep the whole family busy. They have a really nice playground for the little ones, water wars which is a water balloon game, mini golf, a arcade which is located in the lodge, & a very nice beach. The lodge offers great ice cream treats & other snack items like fries, mini tacos, chicken fingers, etc. They also offer several rental options. We rented a fishing boat for the whole week we where there for only $200. They let us keep the boat right at our site since we had a lake front site. They also have canoes, kayaks, aquabikes, & pontoon boats to rent. My kids had a blast at the beach. They have water mats & a log rolling thing for the kids to play on. This is a very popular campground so if you are considering staying here you need to book a good 6 months in advance to get a site. It took us a year to get into this campground!!

I had a real hard time with the lack of communication with the staff here. We had two sites booked by the water for three families. We were told that we would be charged for the two sites (4 adults + kids are free) at $42/night per site and the extra adults would have to each pay $3/night and $7 extra per vehicle/night. In the end each family was charged for a seperate site and the owner would not refund the price of the third site. I've never had this experience while camping. Usually I am charged for the site and extra people, not charged the full amount of another site for the extra people.

The campground was great- traveled with 3 couples with young children. We didn't let the $264 price of the camping ruin our weekend (Even though I won't be back).

The only other bad experience was that it was a Saturday and they had somebody mowing the lawn while we were in front of the lodge looking at the bikes they have for rent. We had to move out of the way for him & then he rode by mowing & shooting rocks at us and our 6 kids (ages 4 months to 5 years). Nobody was hurt, thankfully, but it was incredibly rude.

This campground has a fantastic location in the middle of the Chippewa Flowage, Hayward Area. There was a nice small store, a game room, and rental items(bikes, golf carts, mini golf) . Most camping sites were fairly wooded and average sized. The sites facing the water were beautiful and several had a sandy entrance to the lake. The fishing was good, we caught crappies, smallmouth bass, and walleyes. Bring a GPS as there are many rivers and lakes connected. The beach was very nice and included floaties for the kids to play on. The temperature was unseasonably cold when we went so bugs were not a problem. Tons of chipmunks scurrying around. The only recommendation I would have is to add a pool / hottub area. We stayed in a park model which was like a small 1 bedroom mobile home (kitchen & bath) and found it clean and cozy except the couch / bed for the kids had a terribly thin mattress and the bars almost poked through. The campground seemed well maintained and staff was very friendly. We would recommend this campground to friends.
