a gem overlooking the Missisippi!

Wow - well done, Wisconsin. What a beautiful park to pull into after a long day of driving. Lovely drive in to the park and then to pull up to an immaculate campsite was a treat. Fireflies emerged as we began to setup camp and we watched the sunset over the Missippi before calling it a night. Great…

Beautiful scenery, awesome fishing!

We had a nice time at Bailey’s Ford park. Kids like the playgrounds. Camp Sites were well spaced and shaded and level and well-maintained. The trout streams were right behind the camp, and fishing was very accessible. We had good luck fishing and a great time. Wish there were more water Spigots. We…

Endless trails, cool cliffs, quiet atmosphere

I have been to Backbone a few times, this spot is one of my friends and I’d favorite. There is no through traffic so it’s quiet. Tons of trails, specifically the spot we camped at was right by the trail so we had easy access. The sites are big so you can camp far back and keep the vehicles at the…

Nice campground!

We camped with family in the group circle site. The circle group site has a nice big area for the kids to play. The playground and lake was also fun for the kids too.

Great Campground for Kids, Lots of Amenities

Decent sites with full hook ups. Little shade with small trees next to about each site. Gas, propane, laundry room, beach area, small boat rentals, good sized convenience store with ice, beer, snacks, milkshake machine, etc. Enough to do for a day or two without going to the water park. Overall…

Gorgeous state park!

To start off, Backbone State Park is one of the most gorgeous parks I’ve ever visited. It’s so beautiful, with plenty of challenging and scenic trails and lots of wildlife. The only reason I didn’t give it five stars is the campgrounds (we stayed at Six Pines). I’ll go into more detail below.…

Many things to do here

Backbone is a very diverse area. There are miles of trails. Is hiking your thing? What about equestrian? Maybe mountain bike trails? You can even take the family for a nice leisurely walk on the easier trails. Exploring is fun at this park because there is so much to see. The Trout stream was busy…

Beautiful views and peaceful camping!

Beautiful, spacious, and quiet camping and state park. The hiking is awesome! We hiked the Bluff Trail which has lots of hills and steepness, skinny trail with some drop offs but it was fun! My daughter was a little nervous during the hike but I felt safe so nothing to worry about. Just take…

on Bigwood's lake

Nice County camp ground (Black Hawk), Electric and non-electric sites. campground sits on edge of lake. Bike trail runs by campground and connects to the Cedar Valley Trail (100+miles of interconnecting hard surface bike trails). NOTE: Some Hwy noise at night as Hwy 218 is right next door)
