Nestled in between two valleys with 3,500 feet of stream front property on the West Fork of the Kickapoo, we truly have one of the most unique campgrounds you'll ever visit. Having avoided glacial drift during the last ice age, the Driftless area boast beautiful valleys, bluffs and rolling hills that you won't find anywhere well in Wisconsin. We are an Environmental Conservation Club always accepting new members. A temporary membership is included in camping fees and goes toward environmental conservation work and maintaining grounds, free wifi, etc. Our 20 acre property boast 3,500 feet of stream-front class 1 trout fishing on the West Fork of the Kickapoo (a top 100 trout stream in the US). Our entire stretch of stream is fully improved and excellent to fish. We have a healthy native brown trout population. We work with a local school science program to raise and stock brook trout every year. We have resident Sandhill Cranes, Bald Eagles, Oriels, Willow Fly Catchers, Hummingbirds and many other avian species. Nestled between two valleys, we frequently have stunning sunsets. We are far enough way from light pollution to easily see the Milky Way Galaxy on a clear night. The star gazing is amazing and if you keep your eyes up at night, you're pretty much guaranteed to see a shooting star, if not multiple. The West Fork Sport Club is truly a special campground. We're a short 15 minute drive from Viroqua which has a lot of great local shops, the Driftless Café (Owned and operated by Wisconsin Foodie host Luke Zahm) and a fantastic farmer's market. We're 25 minutes from Wild Cat Mountain which has extensive hiking trails. There are also two great vineyards within 15 minutes. Even on a rainy day, you will have plenty of fun options.

The best camping near Rocky Arbor State Park guide

Overview

About

Need to get away from overcrowded tourist areas of the Wisconsin Dells? Look no further than Rocky Arbor State Park. A relatively small area in proportion to other parks, Rock Arbor feels like a step away from the hustle and bustle. Hike the mile-long nature trail then relax beside the fire at your campsite. You’ll feel relaxed and rejuvenated. And if you’ve got a hankering to get outdoors this winter, make your way to Rocky Arbor for a snowy hike amongst the gorgeous scenery. Plan your trip and skip the Dells crowds.

Notable campgrounds

  • Secluded Pine Campground: Enjoy the whisper of the pines in this peaceful retreat.
  • Bluffview Campground: Wake up to stunning views of the sandstone bluffs.
  • Arbor Trails Campsite: Perfect for hikers looking to hit the trails at dawn.

Tips for snagging a campsite

  • Book early to secure your spot, especially during peak summer months.
  • Weekdays offer better availability than weekends—consider a midweek stay.
  • Check for cancellations regularly as plans change and spots open up.
  • Explore nearby camping options if the park is fully booked.

When to go
