PLEASE NOTE: The listings above are accurate as of 08/17/19, but do not reflect all the amenities offered at this campground. Also, many campground facilities add or remove campsites and amenities over time. We strongly recommend you visit this DNR website at the Shades State Park for all information, complete details and much more.

All RV sites are non-electric. If you seek the comfort of an air-conditioned RV during the warm and humid months of summer, you will have to run your generator during the allowed hours between 7 a.m. until 11 p.m. local time. Neighboring RV owners may be using their generators for the same or other reasons, and that could result in both a noisy environment and lingering exhaust fumes in the air. On the other hand, this state park may be perfect for RV campers during the cooler months of Fall. The windows can be open for fresh air and a cooler night for sleeping.
