Anyone want to recommend a few good campgrounds in WI or the U.P.

How about J.W. Wells State Park, located on Green Bay. One of our favorites.

It does get crowded on holiday weekends, but if you can go during the week or "off season" it's pretty peaceful. They are some waterfront sites available also.

We have a 29ft TT 30 amp would be nice, water sewer is no big deal. We camp with our three younger kids. Last year all they wanted to do was fish. We spent a lot of time near Waupaca but we are looking for new places to explore.

If fishing is your activity of choice, the area around Chetek is hard to beat. My family goes every year - I take the grandson there once in a while so he can fish with them. There are a couple of campgrounds in Chetek that are good, RV Park Reviews :: Chetek, Wisconsin ( WI ) - RV Parks and Campground Reviews.

We really like Copper Falls State Park, just south of Ashland, or Govenor Dodge State park over near Dodgeville or Devil's Lake, near Baraboo. Also on our state park list would be Mirror Lake, near the Dells, or Kohler Andre, near Sheboygan or Wyalusing, near Prarie Du Chien. There are others. Problem is, if you don't plan 11 months in advance you'll have a difficult time getting reservations for a weekend or holiday. There are, of course, private campgrounds in all of these areas.

Also, along M35 (near JW Wells State Park), there are some county parks right on the water. We've never stayed at any of them but did drive through one once. Here's the website for Delta County Parks/ O.B. Fuller campground:

There are too many to list and I would rely on rvparkreviews.com when you find a city you want to visit. Having said that, many places to camp in the Dells. We have stayed at Fox Hill RV Park, Shorewood Forest, the KOA, and Holiday Shores RV. All are good. There are many places to camp in Door County, Peninsula State Park is awesome, just requires some advanced planning. We stay at Bailey's Grove RV Park in Bailey's Harbor. In the UP, we have stayed at Porcupine Mountain State Park, Tahquamenon Falls State Park and Straits State Park. We would easily go back to all. Enjoy !

There are SOOOO many here to choose from, it's hard to give you a decent list without knowing other details:

1. What size rig?
2. What activities are you looking to do?
3. Do you need hookups? Full?
4. Kids?
5. Any other details will help.

We camp 10+ times each year within a 2 1/2 hour radius around NW WI (all the way up into the North Shore of MN, The Bayfield Penninsula ((Apostle Islands)), U'Per areas ((Porcupine Mts and Ironwood)), Rib Mt/Wausau, The Dells, and over to the western MN/WI border. Our home is in Barron County (Rice Lake/Chetek area) and most of our trips are between us and Lake Superior to the north.

We have found that we like to have more 'rustic' camping (lots of trees, trails, and not too close to other campsites) while still having basic hookup (20-50amp) bathrooms/showers. This usually gives us the most relaxing trip while still having some amount of 'civilization'. We enjoy fishing, hiking, sea-cave kayaking/swimming, ship wreck snorkeling, and generally 'beautiful views'. Sitting around the fire after dark for a quiet family visit/singalong and enjoying a cup of coffee at the fire in the morning while listening to the Loons sing across the lake are some or our favorite times to share. For us, only about 1 in every 10 campgrounds fit the bill. As a general rule, most of the full hook-up, high-rated campgrounds are NOT what we enjoy doing around here. They are usually an empty grass field with maybe a dozen small trees and 50 sites lined up like cord-wood; not our idea of a way to relax or see the area. As an example, one local 'campground' is rated 4 out of 5 stars by many of the RV sites, but it is nothing more than the backyard of a run-down hotel smack dab in the middle of town and less than a block from the highway and directly along freight train tracks (actually, nearly every town around here has at least one of those). When I asked how they got 4 stars the owners said "we have water/sewer hookup so that gives us the advantage".

If you can 'rough it' a little, you will get MUCH better ambience and atmosphere around here!

If you can narrow down what it is you're specifically looking to do and/or what areas you for sure want to see, drop me a line and I'll give you some suggestions on sites!
