    Hudson, Wisconsin

    Willow River State Park Campground, nestled near Hudson, WI, is a gem for anyone looking to escape the hustle and bustle of the Twin Cities. This place has it all: hiking, mountain biking, and even some water features to cool off in. The campground is divided into three loops, with the 300 loop being the oldest and closest to Little Falls Lake. If you're lucky, you might snag a lakeside spot there.

    The 100 and 200 loops are newer and come with their own perks. The 100 loop boasts the best shower facilities and a small playground, making it a hit with families. However, these loops are closer to County Highway A, so you might hear a bit of road noise. Cell service is solid in these areas, which is a bonus if you need to stay connected.

    Visitors have praised the clean bathrooms and showers, although some mentioned that the facilities can get a bit crowded. The campsites themselves are well-maintained, with level pads and decent privacy thanks to the surrounding trees. Fire rings and electric hookups are available, making it easy to set up camp and relax.

    One of the highlights of Willow River State Park is the trail to Willow Falls. It's a relatively easy hike with minimal elevation gain, perfect for a family outing. The falls are stunning, and there's even a selfie station for those Instagram-worthy shots. If you're into water activities, bring your canoes, kayaks, or paddleboards. The lake might have some algae, but it's generally calm and great for a paddle.

    Pets are welcome, so feel free to bring your furry friends along. Just remember to keep them on a leash. And if you're into bird watching, you're in for a treat. The park is a haven for various bird species, adding to the overall charm of the place.

    So, pack your gear and head over to Willow River State Park Campground for a memorable outdoor experience. Whether you're there for a weekend or an extended stay, this place won't disappoint.
