Located in bucolic south central Wisconsin, Smokey Hollow campground is on the small side yet offers a wealth of amenities. The campground holds 100 RV sites (from $45), most nestling in the woods. All come equipped with water and electricity, with pull-through sites to accommodate big rigs. Not really into roughing it? Rent one of nearly two dozen creative lodging alternatives (from $85): yurts, Conestoga wagons, cabins, park models, gazebos, motor homes and travel trailers.
Once you're settled in, it's time to have some fun. Smokey Hollow offers all the typical modern amenities: play equipment, a swimming pond with inflatables, basketball, volleyball, a jumping pillow and miniature golf, but it also provides some more unusual options, such as rides on Cinderella’s pumpkin coach or an enormous motorized shopping cart. Games and activities galore include dunk tanks, movies, fire truck rides, pudding wrestling and a “blinky” parade, which you can only join if you're wearing something lighted and flashing. Like many campgrounds, Smokey Hollow hosts themed weekends (the Water War weekend entails 15,000 water balloons), as well as a Segway clinic and Friday night fish fry.
As a thoughtful memento, weekend campers are given a DVD movie made from photos taken during their stays.
