"Just wanted to thank you for such a great weekend. The events that are planned are fun and keep the little ones busy as well as the kid in all of us.
"This is our second annual water wars and it was absolutely perfect. The staff is courteous, friendly, and so helpful whenever in answering any questions we might have. We are looking forward to Halloween weekend in September. Again, thanks for providing a clean, safe place to camp."
"To our friends at Smokey Hollow and Baraboo Hills Campgrounds, and Bud Styer Associates,
"Words cannot express how thankful we are for your generous donation to Pardeeville Elementary Schools-Outreach to Teach Project. Our silent auction was a huge success and the camping that was donated was very popular. The auction alone raised over $5,000 and with all of the money raised, we will be able to complete many painting, landscaping and construction projects that have been put on hold because of budget constraints. Your commitment to the community is amazing and very much appreciated!
On behalf of Pardeeville Schools,
"I wanted to let everyone know at Smokey Hollow Campground that my boyfriend and some of our friends had a great time. This was my first time up in Lodi, WI and it was very enjoyable and we are looking to come back again very soon. We just camped and were in site 13 and 14 and it was a great atmosphere, friendly staff, other campers were very welcoming and it was very family friendly. The bathrooms were very very clean so thank you for that! We are from Chicago, IL and I just wanted to let ya'll know it was awesome.
As we were packing up our things this morning, a gentlemen dropped off a DVD of the Water Wars and I am watching as I am typing this and it looks like a blast. I have never seen something like this before at any campground...I love it.
Keep up the great work!"
"I wanted to let you know that we camped over the weekend of August 1st and our family just had a ball! My children really enjoyed the pond (be it ever so cold that weekend), the bikes, the activities and especially the Water Wars. We are trying to plan another trip next summer and getting some of our friends to join us. Thanks again for such a great time and look forward to seeing you guys again next year.

"I am part of a camping group of 16-22 families, with 3yr old to grand parent age campers. Each year, a different family picks a campground within a 2 1/2 hour radius from Janesville. This year, your campground was picked!!
Not only did our kids love it, but the adults enjoyed it also. We all had a blast in the 'swimming pool', using the rental equipment, playing volleyball, watching movies, eating free popcorn, and going on a 'tour bus ride'!
The private bathrooms were wonderful, your karokee was a blast for our 'load' group and we truly enjoyed your friendly staff.
Too often, people will tell you when they don't/didn't like and/or enjoy something. I wanted to tell you that our group of 60 campers had a wonderful 4th of July camping weekend.
"We would like to let you know that this was our first trip here at Smokey Hollow and we totally have enjoyed our visit here. We will surely return. Just love all what you have for the children to do. Our grandchildren just can't believe all what you have for them to do. They are on the go from morning till night! We are at site R12 & our son and family at 63. All your employees are so very nice & courteous. We are the Wallace's from Burlington, WI. Thank you so very much."
"We camped at Smokey Hollow campground this past weekend. I just wanted to say that we had the greatest time!! It was our first time being there but it will definitely not be our last!! There was so much for our children to do, we couldn't ask for anything more!! I just wanted to let you know I think your campground is wonderful and I wanted to thank you for all the wonderful memories we now have."

Dear Mr. Styer,
The Sauk Trail Elementary School Parent Teacher Association (PTA) would like to thank you for donating 2 yurt certificates valued at $200 each, 2 camping certificates for 2 nights valued at $80 each and 2 camping certificates for 4 nights valued at $160 each to the Sauk Trail Valentine Carnival and Silent Auction that was held on Friday, February 6, 2009. Thanks also for bringing your staff of four to apply cool tattoos the whole night. Your booth was huge the favorite of most of the kids. I can't thank you enough for your continued support these past three years. You not only give of certificates but you also give us your time and energy on the big night.
The night was a ton of fun and a huge success with us bringing in over $13,000. The kids enjoyed the carnival and the adults enjoyed the friendly "bidding battles." The PTA is now excited to put that money to use on field trips for the kids, extended activities for the classrooms and resources for the students and staff. Thanks for making that possible.
Thanks for your very generous donation. We hope that the publicity your business was given will benefit you as well. You have big fans at Sauk Trail Elementary!!
