Hookups are water and electric. It's simply a well-run town campground. You can reserve a site for the season, but otherwise it's first come first served. It's several blocks from downtown. West End Park is home to the Flowing Well, an artesian well that flows...More

We always stop at the campground to fill our water jugs with the clear, cold, artesian well water that is available. Runs 24 hours a day...locals stop to use verses bottled water! Best bargain in Washburn...free.

We were staying in Bayfield, WI for a few days and thought it would be fun to drive down the river road and see what we could find. This is a nice park for a picnic, or just to get out and stretch your legs....More

Stopped n with a motorcoach for a few days. The first site was unlevel but I found a site quite level. Great location to Washburn and the surrounding area, such as Bayview and Ashland. Park has a playground, beach, electric hookups and nice roads.

We stopped on a Sunday morning to walk around the park. There is a wooden dock that goes out into the lake. So we walked out to explore, and there was a young boy fishing. I started a conversation with him about what he catches...More

Located right on the shores of Chequamegon Bay! Incredible view! Fishing pier, marina, BBQ pits, restrooms & showers! Tons of campsites, but they fill up quickly during the tourist season so make your reservations early.

I would give this a zero rating if I could! We went to camp at this campground for Apple festival. We were pulling into our site and the groundkeeper came and started yelling about how we were parking in the site. He was VERY rude,...More

Small but good beach. Water was refreshing. Free wifi in the whole park. There's a well near the entrance that the locals say has the best water in Wisconsin (and the world's best according to one guy).
