Marc and Lollie Wheeler
Overcharged us $66 for 3. Read responses below, i cannot give these people the time of day. Absolutely awful.
The owners of this campground are
extremely rude. They start with the rudeness and try to intimidate from the minute you enter their property. Search for reviews of their site and you'll find out the truth about the Wheelers. It is a surprise how they are able to stay in business. The campground was dirty and there was trash all over
the playground area. Very disappointed.
Owner Update. Hello from Lollie and Marc Wheeler! We do have a few rules for the safety of all campers. They are not arbitrary. We ask that everyone register at the office and pay before going out onto the campground, adhere to the 5mph speed limit, do not gather or cut live or dead wood on the grounds, and use quiet voices and no music after our quiet hour at 11pm. It's pretty basic: respect our policies and respect will be reciprocated. Come and enjoy a peaceful camping experience with us next time you visit Devil's Lake!
Don't Camp at Wheeler's Campground. The grounds were nicely groomed and the restrooms and showers were clean. These things are expected. Unfortionately this is all I can say that is positive. Two individuals from our party arrived late, which we informed the owner in advance. They arrived and planned on signing in that next morning as we had planned on staying three nights. We didn't see this as a problem. Around 11:00 that night we were confronted by the owner. He was very upset that these 2 individuals didn't sign in. His approach to us was hostle, he came accross ignorent, and our appology and explination wasn't enough for him. I won't be back and wished I had read the reviews. There are plenty of other camping sites where the owners appreciate and respect their guests. This owner showed no respect and didn't appear to know or understand how damaging this behavior is to a business.
Beware, owner has an attitude. When our group of "senior" bicyclists (most in our 60's) decided to get together for a weekend of biking and hiking, we thought Wheeler's Campground would be the ideal spot. The campground location is great with access to some wonderful biking back roads. Two of our group got in late and just came to the reserved sites the first night. We were staying for 3 nights so they thought that they would check in early the next morning. No big deal. WOW!! BIG DEAL!!!! Mr. Wheeler came unglued at our site at 11pm. We should have checked out the reviews. We were honest, calm and apologetic but he just would not let up. Mark Wheeler was totally confrontational and rude. After reading other reviews, I see a pattern. There are other places to stay. We will not be back.
Be carefull of Mark!. Mark and Lollie are the owners. Mark must have some mental things going on! Mark is very scary. Very well kept-up but don't let that fool you. I totally agree with all of the bad reviews. If you do stay there try to work with Lollie, but don't forget about "Mark"! I was at the Wheeler Camp May 17,18, and the 19th. Now I know why their campground was almost emty, when all the others where full.
PSYCHOTIC OWNERS...DO NOT CAMP HERE. So much for Communism going out of style. These people are rude and are completely high on authority. Not a good camping experience at all. There are plenty of campgrounds in this area that are cheaper, nicer, more pleasant, and not ruled with an iron fist with the owner creeping around in the woods at night watching you, waiting for you to say something wrong or do something wrong. HORRIBLE PLACE TO CAMP!!!
WORST CAMPGROUND OWNERS ON THE PLANET.. We had been camping at Wheeler's Campground for years. The owners have been nothing but rude to us and our children, for no reason other than that they can. They knew that our reservation fell through at Devil's Lake and that is the only reason we ever went to Wheeler's, so the kids could be at least close to the lake. Maybe they resented that? The Wheelers seem like they have a Dr. Jeckyll/Mr. Hyde syndrome...sometimes pleasant, but most of the time bothersome & rude. Not to mention the snide remarks from the Mr. about buying our firewood elsewhere. We know many people that they have been rude to...people that enjoy camping and are not party goers, but campers...and to have these self-important hicks be rude to us for no reason is just stupid.
Great place for families and not for partiers.
I can believe that people really like this place. We went twice last year after we could not get a spot at Devil's Lake SP campgrounds and we were pleasantly surprised by a nice, well-kept place that was perfect for tent campers. We were given a choice of spots, led to our spot, and were treated well. But then again, we followed the well-published RULES. This is their home and they are working hard to make a nice place for everyone. No surprises here at all and yes, our first night, there were some loud folks and wouldn't you know it, the police came later. If you want to party, this is not your spot.
If you want to have a great time with your family, this place is great. We had a pouring rainstorm the second time we camped here. The washer and dryer along with the game room were great for beating the rain and keeping the kids busy. Hot showers were awesome! And a playground for the kids when the rain finally stopped.
We'll be back this year as I see DL is packed again.
