Egg Harbor, Wisconsin

Egg Harbor Campground – Other reviewers at rvparkreviews.com

August, 2014

The Lowe’s overall rating = 8 out of 10 stars


 

Noise level and overall “feel” of the park?
For it’s relatively small size, the “transient” area of this park is a bit
noisier than I would expect.  Maybe it’s because the road circled
through such a small area.  We were here over the Labor Day weekend,
but even before that it was a bit noisy with car traffic.  There was no
noise from the main road out front, so that helped to make up for it.
Folks around the park seemed friendly enough.

Road and site access/type?
Roads and sites were gravel.

Spaciousness/levelness of sites?
Our site (#23) was level enough that jacks were not required.  It was
a pull-through with plenty of length, but the sites are close together.
Some of the closeness is mitigated by trees between each site, but the
tree barriers on each side of our coach made it too tight to extend our
awnings.  We did like the feel of privacy that the trees provided,
though, and they kept our RV cooler on the sunny days.

Utilities and WiFi/cell reception?
Full hookups, 50-amp power was strong when we arrived, but dropped
critically low when the park was full – we had to switch over to propane
over the weekend.  Water pressure was good.  Our Verizon signal was
also strong.  No cable here, but our satellite dish found a hole in the
trees and worked fine.

Picnic table and/or fire pit?
Our site had both, and the office had firewood for sale.  We found
firewood cheaper close by, outside the park.

Facilities – bathrooms/showers/laundry room?

Old, but fairly clean bathrooms and showers.  The laundry room
consisted of 4 washers, 4 dryers and a nice folding table.

Pet and/or kid friendly?
Not really pet-friendly.  No large area to let dogs run, although I
believe folks took their dogs on walks down the walking trail – which
was actually a fairly nice one.  There is a game room and pool for
kids, but no large play areas.

Bike/walking trails nearby?
Yes, a nice walking trail leaves right out of the park and we followed
it a couple of times (until the mosquitos got a bit overbearing).

Grocery stores and other services nearby?
This area outside of town is more about “country markets”, which
are fun but not full-service.  We found a decent market in the town
of Egg Harbor (only a 10-minute drive away) that had a great wine
selection and lots of good Wisconsin delicacies.  Many restaurants
and small shops can be found while walking around the small town.
There are also some fairly good wineries close by.

Comments:
You know how you just get a good feeling about a town when you first
drive through it?  Well, that’s how we felt here.  We visited several of
the other area towns – Ephraim, Sister Bay, Bailey’s Harbor and Fish
Creek – and we liked this one best.  Just the right size, and not too
busy – although traffic passing through to destinations north got
heavy at times.  Egg Harbor is also fairly centrally-located on the Door
Peninsula, so the other towns are an easy drive away.  Also close to
Peninsula State Park, a very large park with miles of walking and biking
trails – which are free if you park your car outside the park.  We would
definitely stay at this RV park again, if in the area.
