Wheeler's Campground: Decent Climber-friendly Campground

This campground is run by climbers who also have a guide service in Devil's Lake. They are usually friendly. However, in recent years the owners seem to be getting a bit 'sour' or 'jaded' by mid-season if you catch them on the wrong day - again seems to be due to the overcrowding plaguing the area. This is unfortunate and usually they are very nice to campers, especially if you talk to them about climbing and don't arrive after hours!

Definitely book sites in advance. This and other campgrounds in the area fill up quickly in summer.

Climbing store on site. They are very close to the State Park entrance. Also a horse riding stable just down the street from them, if you are into that too.

They have a quiet policy and will drive around the site to enforce it - if someone is making too much noise, you can complain and they'll take care of it. This is unlike the state park -run campground where one weekend we had to put up with a bunch of people shooting(!!! ) at cans and whooping and drinking all night in the 'large party' site next to us -- and the park wardens came by, but were too afraid to tell them to stop. Got no sleep there and decided not to go back to the State Park campgrounds again.
