If you have never been to Wisconsin Dells, or haven’t been in the last 40 years, you won’t want to miss our rally in this unique part of the country.
Wisconsin Dells gets its name from the incredible sandstone formations along the Wisconsin River. The river winds through a beautiful area well known to campers, fishermen, and naturalists. It was originally inhabited by several Native American tribes including Ojibwe, Potawatomi, Menominee, and Ho-Chunk. Aldo Leopold’s “Sand County Almanac”, which is considered one of the most significant environmental books of the 20th century (and would be a great “pre-rally read”), was written about Leopold’s farm nearby.
While the countryside is wonderful for nature lovers, the city of Wisconsin Dells has evolved into an adventure in shopping and thrill rides. There are enough attractions there to keep you busy for days on end! Because there are so many choices, we have only included places that we have experienced – which means you may want to allow a little extra time for exploring on your own.
One of the planned events is a boat tour on the Wisconsin River. Depending on conditions on the river, we will see many of the sandstone formations (some are not accessible if the river is too low or too high). The boat will make two shore landings, where you can get an up-close look at dramatic rock formations and amazing scenery. The boat trip will take about a half day, including arrival and disembarking, followed by dinner at the Mexicali Rose, where you may choose to dine on the patio overlooking the river.
Other rally events include a miniature golf tournament, a visit to the fascinating International Crane Foundation, breakfast at the world-famous Paul Bunyan’s Cook Shanty, and wine-tasting at Fawn Creek Winery.
Country Roads RV Park is a full hook-up, wagon-wheel park, with nice level pull-through sites. They are saving sites 1-15 for our rally.

There will be a $20 per person rally fee, which will cover two meals in the campground and misc. fees. Any excess will be refunded. Fees for restaurants and activities will be paid individually.
