Beautiful Lakefront Sites

I really liked this campground. The lakeshore was so beautiful and we were literally right next to the water. The lake front sites weren’t super level but worth the trouble to have the view we had. Nice shower house and flushing toilets only a few yards down the road. My husband and I won’t hesitate to stay here again

Love this place!

Busy place in July! Perfect location to plan multi-family camping. Lots of amenities on site and nearby.

Fun place for kids

Great swimming for kids! Lots of activities and amenities to enjoy.

User friendly & close to town and quiet

Great place to stay. Right next to Black River. Sites sit back from highway so easy access and quiet. Open year round. Showers. Owner is friendly and very helpful.

Quiet, peaceful & disconnected :)

beautiful shoreline year round, rock picking, sunsets, blue ice in winter. Make sure you bring groceries with you as it is 16 miles to Ironwood. Limited cell service can be accessed sporadically and if needed near boat launch and west on Cr 505/122.

Site F17

F 17 is a island family site. It is a larger site with the addition of a picnic table

Site R27

R27 is a small rustic sight on an island within the Turtle Flambeau Flowage


Clean bathrooms and shower areas. Easy hook up for water, electric and sewer. RV sites nice but would prefer more trees. Nice fire pits. Wood available for purchase. Driving a short distance to fun towns. Pretty quite.


Nice campground

It's a decent spot

Perfect Rustic Hidden Gem

Northern Highland American Legion State forest- Plum lake is a long name.

They check in is at Crystal Lake and it's kind of hard to find plum lake if you don't know the area. That is THE ONLY bad thing I have to say.

This is a rustic campground. No electricity or running water. It does have a hand pump if you need water (it was really cool and easy to use). Vault toilets.

Most campsites are "non reservable" but we were able to reserve 1209. Right on the lake and next to the creek. The map makes it look like it is a "hike to" campsite. It is not. There are 4 stairs. You just can't bring a trailer.

I cannot say enough on how great the camp hosts were. Toilet paper replenished every morning. Vault toilets were the cleanest I'd ever seen. It didn't ever smell like a vault toilet! They racked each sites sand after the campers left and stacked left over wood. It was wonderful.

The beach isn't really a typical beach. It's a grassy field that has a set of stairs to the lake and all the sand is under water. But holy moly, the view! See the pictures.

Beautiful place!

Spacious and level sites, all mowed grass. Very clean bathrooms with hot showers. Absolutely sweetest older lady running the place…she brought me a piece of cheesecake that she made and gave my dog some dog treats, too! Firewood was reasonably priced and a generous amount. I will definitely stay here again and highly recommend!

Love Patricia lake

Owners friendly and helpful Sites are clean and not too close together. Large fenced in dog run and also area for dogs to swim Quiet too

Very nice Wisconsin north woods campground

Nice clean well kept campground, nice sized sites , clean restrooms, some sites right on the water. Good swimming beach . Lots for kids to do , friendly owners.

Aweful Management

I truly wish I could give Zero stars for this park. The park itself is in a nice location, but the manager has clearly chosen the wrong career path. We had nothing but electrical issues the entire time we stayed there in a very hot part of summer and the managers answer to the problem when I brought it to her attention was, “don’t run the a/c if you’re having issues, no one else seems to have a problem!” On top of that there is a sign forbidding just about everything you can think of posted everywhere at this park….save your time and go elsewhere.


You are able to reserve or have non reserve sites . Beautiful location tucked in by many pines and hardwoods. There is a lake with a fishing dock boat landing and swimming area. You can  hike a wonderful nature trail and also bike  in areas. There are hiking and a tv trails  close by. But the best is no cell service and the sound of the elk and loons in the evening.

Great campground

Awesome trails! Could walk to the trails from your sites. Sites were relatively private and very spacious (we fit two tents and two cars in one space along with a canopy). Great beach as well!

Great place

Great park with lots of different types of sites however they are fairly close together

Very Nice Park

Very nice park with several new lots that are all grass with water and electric. Several lots are full hookup. There is not a true dump station, only a spot near the bathroom that you can pull up to dump, but then you have to back out of it. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

Right on the paved bike trail

Quiet campground across the road from the busier Crystal Lake campground. Convenient to the lovely bike trail that takes you to Boulder Junction and Manitowish Waters.

Nice campground

Nice campground with tent sites on the lake. Right on the 4 wheeler trail.

Clean but outdated

Nice pool area and playground. Lots of permanent sites. Packed in like a mobile home park.

Worth the drive

Awesome scenery and hike.

A beautiful family campground!

This campground is very clean and nice with tons of things to do! The sites are nice and big and the pond has inflatables that are very fun.

Liked it .. a lot!

Very nice. Quiet. Lots of trees and shade. Small lake with swimming area. Fishing is good. 100 sites, most with full hookup. Laundry.

Wonderful campground

This is one of our favorite campgrounds. It’s big and spacious and on the most beautiful clear lake. Good fishing and boating/skiing. Minoqua is easily accessible.

Limited cell service

Great campground and lake. Had to drive to the nearby town of Clam Lake for wifi and closer to Hayward for cell service.

Pretty awesome

Host was very accommodating when we needed to plug in our boat. The moss-covered old growth forest provided an excellent tent site & entertained our 2 boys under 8 until they tired. The swimming area Was under kept but we still enjoyed all day. Overall our Saturday- Monday visit was very pleasing.

Not bad for camping in May

OK  New we were far north in May but we had a few nice days in Gogebic State Park  of course we had a rainy day also.  Loved the area.  Nice campground.  Loved the surrounding area also.  Had fun walking around and the lake was beautiful  though cold.

This would be great place to fish and boat in we did neither as we were just passing through.

Restrooms nice and clean and the showers were warm.  WE really liked walking to the boat launch area and they did have nice parking.  

Took us a bit to find a dry campsite but the ranger was very helpful with us and came out and helped us find a nice site.  

They only have 3 pull through sites but the sites are nice and big and if you have problems like us with backing up you will have no problems getting into any of the sites.

Great national forest campground

We arrived on a Saturday but still found empty sites. There are multiple loops so you have choices. The are vault toilets in the center of the loop and trails lead to them from different points around the loop. A trail leads to a group playground.

The big draw here is fishing on the lake as well as the ATV and motorcycle trails. There is an interpretive trail around Day Lake to enjoy.

This is elk territory so keep your eyes open. We saw one crossing a stream.
