On our way south, the Green Bay area was in our path so we planned a short visit. Sheffel’s campground is about 45 minutes south of Green Bay and located near parks and the small towns of Two Rivers and Manitowoc.
The interior roads are spacious enough for big rigs to navigate with care. Our site was nice and long, level, and on solidly-packed gravel. However, for some reason, we booked a site that wasn’t full hook up. I don’t know if that was due to availability or budget reasons (we couldn’t remember), but we ended up on a site with water, 30 amp hookup, and no sewer. The weather wasn’t too hot, so not having 50 amp wasn’t such a big deal. Also, our stay was only a week, so we could deal with no sewer connection (a dump station was available on the way out).
The campground was fairly basic. Each site has a fire ring and picnic table. Our site was satellite friendly, but some sites are under trees so your mileage may vary. We were able to also pick up a number of over the air TV channels. Our AT&T signal was adequate so that we didn’t try out the campground wifi. Other campground amenities include a playground, dog walk area (not fenced), bath house, and coin laundry facility (with two washer/dryer sets).
One irritation for me was the shower facility. The bath house has 5 individual shower rooms, which normally I really like. But, the rooms were equipped with a 25 cents / 2 minutes pay box, which I have personally never dealt with before. You can’t adjust the water temperature either, you just insert your quarter, bathe rapidly, and hope the water doesn’t unexpectedly cut off at the most inopportune time. Really? I’d rather pay a couple of dollars extra per night and have free, unrestricted showers! If we had full hook ups, I’d have used our own facility, but we had to conserve gray tank capacity. <sigh>
Otherwise, the campground worked well. It is located next to a State Park, and a trail connects right into it. However, we walked into the park for a few minutes and got swarmed by mosquitos, so stayed out! A nice grocery store is a few minutes away in Two Rivers. I also recommend stopping by Susie Q’s Fish Market for fantastic fresh and smoked local fish.
Bottom Line: A decent campground if you are in the area. Bring quarters.
