About Us



Come to Wilderness Campground where Life-Long Memories have been made for over 40 years!

Located in south central Wisconsin, in Marquette County just south of Montello, this pristine vacation spot is under a two hour drive from Southern Wisconsin cities and Northern Illinois, and only 25 miles from the world famous Wisconsin Dells.

A mile off the highway, Wilderness Campground is nestled amongst 170 acres of serene oak woods and three private spring fed lakes. Wilderness Campground is the perfect place to enjoy a family camping vacation and make memories that will last a lifetime with your children.

Wilderness Campground has long been known as one of the best private campgrounds in Wisconsin, we constantly strive to make continues improvements to our campground - to enhance the Camping experience for our loyal and happy customers.

There are 360 campsites to choose from, all of which have water and electric hook ups. Many have full hook ups. Some sites are pull through, some are on the beach or have a lake view. We can accommodate anything from tents to the largest 5th wheels and RV’s on spacious, well shaded campsites.

Your hosts Bob and Melanie Weiss have years of experience helping families to create memories at Wilderness Campground. Bob’s parents, Elmer and Bea Weiss bought the fledgling Wilderness Campground in the fall of 1969 and began operations in May of 1970. Bob has lived at the park ever since, and has witnessed all the improvements and changes to the park over the years. Melanie’s family camped at Wilderness Campground during her childhood. At that time she had no idea just how much a part of her life Wilderness Campground would become. She and Bob were married in 1985. Together they raised two girls, Ashley and Laramie. Bob and Melanie now have two grandsons (Easton and Bruchs) who also spend a lot of time at the Wilderness Campground.

We came all the way from India and wanted to experience America. We saw the Grand Canyon, went to Alaska, and now we are here! (at Wilderness Campground)
