General

  • Riverside site set over 165 acres
  • Herons, egrets, geese and eagles all spottable nearby
  • Pool, playgrounds, fishing and boat/canoe hire

The Playful Goose Campground is on the Rock River and has 165 acres for fun and relaxation.

The campground is also near the Horicon Marsh, where the famed sight of hundreds of thousands of Canada geese can be seen in the spring and the fall. The Rock River is also a great place to see rare herons and egrets, while a new family of eagles is growing up nearby: bring your camera to take a picture of these are they glide through the spectacular landscape.

Site facilities include a volleyball court, playgrounds, rowing boats and canoes for hire. There's also a furnished games room and guests can enjoy shuffleboard, horseshoes and fishing from the pier on the river. A large, well-maintained, indoor heated swimming pool is available for guests to use free of charge.

The site has large toilet blocks; showers are available near the main building. Reception has a small corner shop with LP fill service, RV parts and a soft drinks machine.

Campfires are encouraged; however, guests are kindly required to purchase wood on site so the site owners know what's being burnt.

Local attractions

The area is a birdwatching paradise, beginning years ago with the introduction of the pelican to the region, which later became large flocks. Geese, herons, egrets and eagles arrived soon afterwards. Horicon Marsh, Rock River and their inhabitants are must-sees when you visit the Playful Goose Campground.

The Horicon National Wildlife Refuge has a visitor centre with wildlife exhibits, a viewing deck, native plant gardens, and accessible hiking trail.

Must-dos also include:

- Horicon TurnPike auto tour and hiking trails: on State Highway 49, just east of the city of Waupun, with a paved driving route (three miles) and three hiking trails along with a floating boardwalk and bicycling and hiking access to the Wild Goose State Trail.

- Highway 49 Wildlife Viewing Area: on State Highway 49 just west of County Road Z, with a hiking trail (1/4 mile) with an observation area.

- Old Marsh Road: great for hiking and cycling to minimise disturbance to migratory birds.

- Bud Cook Hiking Area: off Point Rd, with two hiking trails and an observation area.

- Peachy Road, Ledge Road, and Main Dike Road are designated locations for fishing.
