Neshonoc Lakeside Campground – West Salem, WI

June 21-22, 2022

View from our site.

This campground was just a two night stop over on our way to the Badlands, but we would definitely come here again for a longer visit.

The customer service here is incredible. I know it seems like such a little thing, but they have an little ice cream store next to the check in area that serves big, beautiful soft serve cones for TWO DOLLARS! These days it is such a delight to be surprised by something costing significantly less than you thought it would.

I know it’s silly, but it made my day.

Neshonoc Lakeside Campground is a beautiful campground on a bluff overlooking, you guessed it, Lake Neshonoc in Salem, Wisconsin.

There are two sections to the park. One side is filled with beautifully maintained tiny homes/RVs that stay on site all year round and are used seasonally. Reba and I took a walk through the neighborhood and it was a delight. We saw neighbors gathering for parties, driving their carts around with fixings for happy hour. There were tons of dog friends for Reba to meet.

The rest of the park is a more traditional RV park with short term campers. The sites are well maintained, large and have full-hookups. We stayed on a site on the second tier of the bluff and looked over the lake. Sunset was incredible.

I rented a kayak and spent an hour on the lake. The winds tested my skill and endurance for sure!

We also took a trip into La Crosse to check out their riverwalk. They could learn a thing or two from Milwaukee’s riverwalk. It was pretty, but there were no riverside cafes and very few facilities. They did have a really interesting garden that featured little vignettes of gardens from around the world.

You know those days when you wish you could just sell all your stuff and go on the road? Me too! So I did it.
