we went 8/10,weather was nice,beach campground 924 spot was close to showers and restrooms.Good and close plase for gateway,its onlu 2,30 hours from Chicago
Our site was a bit less secluded than I’d prefer but still very nice. The loop we were on the lower 900 loop, had quite a few sites that could be combined to be group sites. Two sites completely adjoining or with very little separating them. This loop would be good for an option if the group sites are unavailable. Especially the inner loop sites that back up to each other. We walked some of the other loops and the did not all seem this way, stuff especially in the 700’s loop being a bit more wooded with some nice sites being my favorites, and also some nice sites in the upper 900’s loop that were spaced out nicely. Great hiking nearby, flush toilets, showers, nice little beach, plenty of downed wood around and also available to purchase 5$ a stack, pet friendly except no dogs allowed on the beach. There is a dog friendly picnic area near the water though. Nice get away pretty close to Milwaukee, Chicago, etc…
At the last minute we decided to go camping for the holiday weekend. We called 6 campgrounds close to us on Thursday at noon and this was the only one with availability. Best part about the campgrounds is that the showers have great pressure despite the buildings being old, the camping spaces are typically spacious, and there is lots of felled wood that you can use in your fire pits. The negatives as a dog owner is that dogs are not allowed on most trails or on to the beach.
Close to most folks for a get away. Clean and quiet. Nice fishing and swimming. Great trails. You can reserve or try your luck on getting in especially during summer season.
