Glacier Valley Campground


Glacier Valley

Glacier Valley Campground in Cambria, Wisconsin, near Pardeeville and Portage, is the subject of dreams of the owners to be part of the outdoors, mix with people, and create a fun, safe, interesting environment for seasonal and weekend RV campers and tent campers. In a glacier valley, the campground boasts mature trees, a large wooded hillside, and a ten-acre stream and path “wetland.” Diverse campsites are available and nature trails abound. Come visit us!

Please note that we do NOT have WiFi available. So sorry… but this is rural America! Have fun in the pond, play our lawn games, hike our trails, enjoy each others’ company around the campfire…

Your hosts

Richard Chandler

Born in Madison and raised in Watertown, Richard spent time every year growing up camping at the family grounds near Tomahawk or at various Boy Scout and church camps.  Richard is a Vietnam veteran who graduated from
the U. S. Naval Academy. Go Navy!

Diane Thomson

From Ohio, Diane went to Ohio State (boo, hiss) but has found her home in Wisconsin…. In part because she married Richard Chandler! Diane has owned three popup campers and has been camping for most of her life, often taking her two children along. She also owned her family campsite along the Greenbrier River in West Virginia.

Pat is Richard’s sister and the Campground Manager. Pat has lived and camped in Wisconsin her entire life. Now she is a “glamper”, which is a new term for glamour camping. She designed and had built a custom 4’ x 4’ travel trailer (complete with wine refrigerator, storage space, sink, and wine bar) that she tows to campgrounds. She brings creativity, fun, activities and organization to the daily life of Glacier Valley.



About Glacier Valley

We selected “Glacier Valley” as the name for our campground because, well, it is a glacier valley.This beautiful valley in central Wisconsin was carved by the last glacier that descended into this part of the country – appropriately called the Wisconsin Glaciation.
