    Am taking my daughter to go visit friends at Madison. Plan to do a weekend stay in the pup while she's out with friends. Any places not to far from the University that someone would recommend?

    We enjoyed Lake Kegonsa, WI, outside town about 11 miles south if I recall correctly. Very nice state park. Might not be as close to the university as you want.

    Mendota Country Park. 15 minutes to the University.
    We stayed there several times when visiting Madison.
    Electric hook up only.
    Free hot shower in the bath house.
    Dump station and water spigot outside the bath house.

    Lake Farm County Campground.

    We will be staying there in late October so cannot tell you how far it is yet. But from looking at a map its on the other side of Lake Menona (SP?) and says less than 10 min from the capital building on the south east side. CampingBadger is familiar with this area, he should be able to chime in soon. [:D]

    I'd recommend any of the Dane County Park campgrounds, Lake Farm and Mendota being the two closest. Lake Farm is just off of the Beltline Highway south of Madison. Easy drive between the park and campus, up John Nolen Drive. Reservations would be recommended, especially if you're visiting on a Badger football weekend.
