Does anyone know anything about this resort? There always seems to be availability at this resort. The reviews on the RCI Site rate this resort pretty high but it appears that it is in the middle of a small city or town. I am wanting to spend either the 3rd or 4th week in July in Wisconsin and would like to make this a family vacation. I need accommodations for at least 8 (and no one plays golf but we do like to fish). I have tried exchanging into Wisconsin for several years but the availability seems to be pretty slim.

I haven't been there but I did look into buying there. For your situation, I don't
think it would be a good fit. I think the resort is nice enough but I think you
would have to travel too much for activities. I live about 5 miles from the
Wisconsin Dells. I don't know if you've been there before but it may fit the bill
a little better for you. Plenty of activity's and good places to eat. Many good
places to fish within the area. Availability is probably alittle easier to get also.
I live about 3 miles from The Peppertree, it's a nice place away from the hustle
and bustle of the Dells but still close to everything. Wyndham Glacier Canyon
would be a more high class place with waterparks and the works.

If your interested, let me know what your interested in doing and I can mail you
flyers and information. They have that stuff all over around here.

We stay at Fox Hills almost every year, usually in September or October. It's easy to book during that time of the year, typically as an RCI extra vacation. Summer is harder but we have booked it then also as an exchange.

Location - The resort is in Mishicot, Wisconsin, population about 1,300. Approximately 7 miles away are Two Rivers (population around 13,000) and Manitowoc (about 32,000), both on Lake Michigan. The larger towns in the area include Milwaukee, 80 miles south and Green Bay, 35 miles north.

The resort itself is an older facility but is reasonably well maintained. The unit we had this year had been recently refurbished. The resort has multiple villas typically with 4 units per building, two downstairs and two upstairs (no elevators). Most of the units are two or three bedroom lockoffs and are larger than the average timeshare unit. There are also some studios and non-lockoff larger units. There are three golf courses at the resort (you said you are not golfers) and 2 swimming pools, one seasonal outdoor pool and a year round indoor pool.

I can't say much about the activities in the area, we travel there to visit friends and family. I did find a couple of web sites with info which might help.
