Wisconsin Dells Trip Planning
Here’s the good news – most of the campgrounds near the Wisconsin Dells can accommodate RVs of all sizes. This makes it easy to reserve your campsite without size-restriction head aches.
The challenging part of Wisconsin Dells trip planning is the route you take to your campground. If you’re traveling in a tall RV, make sure you don’t route yourself through low underpasses. On the interstate it shouldn’t be a problem, but on backroads you’ll have to pre-plan your route.
We use RV Trip Wizard for an all-in-on RV planning tool. It helps us with our trip-budget, locating the right campgrounds, and routing us on a path that will accommodate our RVs unique size. There are also RV specific GPS units that can lead you in the right path (this option is a little more expensive).
Regardless of the tools you use, make sure you research the route before you hit the road. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!
