Summary:

I spent a few days a Stoney Lake RV Resort on my way through northern Wisconsin. If I were ever to pick a campground on which to have a seasonal site, this would be it. The park is located just off the Interstate about 15 miles south of Eau Claire. So, it's rural in nature, but close to a big metropolitan area as well.

The resort is absolutely beautiful and well maintained. The individual campsites are very large and situated on level gravel pads with a cement patio with a picnic area. The park has a good mix of seasonal campers, overnighters and those looking to spend a week getting away from it all. The seasonal campers are situated in their own "community" away from the busyness of the park, but close enough to participate in all the activities.

There are activities galore on the property including an adult pool, a separate kiddie pool with splash pad, volleyball, basketball, a full-size skate park, a jumping pillow, horseshoes, large playground with sand area, full 18-hole mini golf course, laser tag, game room, hiking trails and an all-terrain vehicle trail. For really little kids, they can play on "Jumparoos" without worrying about bigger kids on the jumping pillow. A large activity center can be used for private group activities, movie nights and campground-led events.

The Internet connection is pretty fast, compared to other campgrounds. My speed test showed it clocked 1.42 mbs download and 0.45 mbs upload. However, the connection resets every 15 minutes requiring users to log back in to continue use. But, it keeps the hogs off the network. My Version connection clocked in at 5.96 mbs download and 4.05 mbs upload. The campground offers free cable connections on RV sites.

The campground has a large store with basic camping supplies, food items and souvenirs as well as pool toys, games and clothing items. An onsite restaurant serves burgers, hot and cold sandwiches, pizza, ice cream and, of course, fried Wisconsin cheese curds. Kids can get a "frisbee meal" of chicken tenders or a hot dog, along with fries and drink served on a Frisbee they can keep.
