Travel Blogs from Baraboo
Baraboo is one of the holy cities of the clown/circus world and since we were only 2.5. hours from there on Friday, we knew we had to go. We visited Circus World, where our friend Neil clowns, and spent time and money at the International Clown Hall of Fame in downtown Baraboo, which boasts a stunning collection of one-of-a-kind clown memorabilia …

How has this campground rated in the past?
While everywhere else we looked cost upwards of $45-50/night, Red Oak charges $30/night for full hook-ups (two adults) for an RV.
