Fox Hill RV Park and Campground- Baraboo, WI

Are you looking for a great family friendly place to camp in Wisconsin? If so, I would highly recommend you make your way to Baraboo, WI and camp at Fox Hill RV Park and Campground.

We have camped here three times now and have been very impressed each and every time. You have tent sites, RV sites, and cabins to choose from. All very reasonably priced and the grounds are very clean. We have always stayed in what they consider their rustic cabins.

They have a very nice, large play area for children located right in the middle of all the sites. So whether you have an RV, tent or a cabin, your children don’t have far to go to have a good time.

For the bigger kids they can rent and ride around on these fine looking scooters.

The bathroom house is also located in the middle of the park.

Take it from a clean freak, these bathrooms have been so clean every time we have visited that even I am amazed.

And the best part is if it’s too hot or the inside showers are full you can always opt for an outdoor shower.

This place has so much to offer besides being very close to so many area attractions. You have Devil’s Lake State Park a few miles away, the WI Dells area and all their attractions, a casino close by and so much more. Even if you never left the campground you would still find so much to do as a family.

And don’t forget they have a nice pool for the summer season, a great little gift shop/general store, and the nicest staff I have ever met. They even deliver wood bundles right to your campsite.

If your thinking about visiting the area of Baraboo,WI give them a call. I am sure you will have a very nice time staying with them.

Spring 2015: Devil’s Lake State Park and Glamping (glamorous camping) at Fox Hill RV Park & Campground

This weekend we visited Devil’s Lake State Park and stayed in a rustic cabin at Fox Hill RV Park & Campground. IMG_0894

I call this glamping (glamorous camping) since it’s not quite as rough as camping in a tent, but not as nice as camping in an RV or deluxe cabin with all the amenities. Yes, we have a tent and we could have easily slept in it this weekend due to the very nice temps but at the time of reservations (months ago) we did not know the weather and the heated cabin is nice to have in Spring.

Remember those weekend goals I told you I was hoping to accomplish this past weekend? Let me refresh your memory and let you know how I did on each one.:

#1 To not over do activity with that ankle. I need to strengthen it back up. As much as I would love to hike 10 miles, that is not likely going to happen. I do plan to hike a little this weekend since our plans have been on the calendar for quite some time now, but all in good reason.
I did accomplish this one. It took all of us to get me to the top of my favorite bluff but I did it and it was very rewarding. The combination of hiking boot, hiking poles, and a medical boot is something I NEVER thought I would see but it is what it is.

#2 I really need to even out my tan. One leg is white and the other is not. Since I can have the boot off for a while each day, this will be my time to marinate in the sunshine.
This one I worked on when I was able but you can still see a difference.

#3 Try out my new insoles when I have the boot off. I’ve been told this could be painful, but I am not too worried. I have been in pain for months, how much worse could it be?
I also did this one. I inserted the insole into my Keen boot and hiked the entire bluff trail with it. And when I am not in the boot it is in my other shoe as well. So far so good. I will write a full review when I can wear them both for an entire day, which will be soon.

#4 Enjoy my first campfire meal of the season. (Fire danger here is very high, this one is iffy) Done….my first roasted marshmallow  of the year.

#5 Spend some family time together. My son was offered a job last week which has him working in his field of photography almost every single weekend photographing weddings. This could be one of our last weekends together as a family doing what we love so I need to savor every second. Done. We hiked, sat by the campfire, did some fishing, played cards, chess, checkers, and disc golf.

#6 Last but not least, work on losing the three pounds I have gained from sitting around unable to exercise for the last month. The night I came home from my appointment we actually took our first walk in a month.(with the boot still on) It was great!
This one I am still working on. I don’t expect nothing to happen until I am back to normal exercise so for now I am just hoping for the best.

All in all it was a fantastic weekend. Weather was gorgeous. I was so happy to be back on the trail. We had some great family time and I came home pain and swelling free which was my biggest worry of the entire weekend.

Weekend Highlights: Devil’s Lake Spring Hike/Glamping (glamorous camping)

I often wonder if my husband is afraid to read his email at work when he see’s it’s from me. Although, when we first got married I was not a “pick up and go” kind of person. I would plan everything out weeks/months in advance. Well, those days are over.

So, after spending such a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend outside and enjoying it so much, I was sort of sad to see it end. Which got me to thinking last Monday morning, why don’t we go camping? It’s still too cold to kayak and water levels are still very high so that sport is completely out of the question. Our son was not scheduled to work and it’s not too hot yet so the bugs will be tolerable. So, I quickly sent a little email simply giving it a title of CAMPING?? to see my husbands thoughts on this plan. He answered quite quickly with a YES and the ball was now in my court.

Typically, when you plan to camp you would normally take a quick peak at the weather forecast. Although, I did and knew the highs for the weekend were looking pretty nice (60-65) I never thought to look at the lows. By Wednesday we had made a few adjustments to our plan to tent camp and ended up renting a basic cabin with heat near the park we planned to hike. Our son told me to man up, but when I mentioned to him that he would have to be the one to listen to me complain how cold it was…. he then agreed to the cabin arrangement pretty quickly.

Friday night after work we left for our destination. We rented the cabin at Fox Hills RV park and Campground in Baraboo,WI. We wanted to get there Friday night so we could have the entire day to hike at Devil’s Lake State Park. We were the very first tenants in this brand new cabin. Very nicely built. Even my husband could not find a flaw anywhere in the design. Now that is a miracle!

We arrived, checked out the grounds, played a little chess,

made smore’s, and went to sleep in our HEATED cabin.

We started our day of hiking early. I had a goal in mind to finally hike the entire loop around the lake. Every time we come here to hike we do one bluff or the other because we drive home the same night. So this was it. My day to cross something off my bucket list.

We started at one end,

climbing to the top of this bluff,

then around the entire lake to the other side and up the second bluff.

We even found Croc Rock along the way.

We made it in just under 5 hours with a break for lunch on the trail included. Sweet success, a total loop!

What a day! The sun was shining beautifully. I had the opportunity to try my new trekking poles. We did some geocaching.

As always, the view from the top took my breath away.

IMG_4516

And again, I got to watch some rock climbers do their thing. Maybe someday I may try this….or maybe not.

After all this, it was back to the campsite for pudgy pies and more smore’s. Yum!

We had so much fun as a family hiking this beautiful park that I hope you will all consider doing something like this with your family. It really does not get any better than this.
