One of our favorites!

Calumet County is one of our favorite places to go - it’s close to home and quiet with gorgeous views of the lake. It’s hard to get our favorite site but there are plenty of nice sites in the park.

Enjoy it but could be better

We have camped here for 9 years for Country USA. The shower and restrooms in the office building are nice but there are some things they could do to improve the campground. You can’t park at your site unless you have have a site with a gravel pad. Even if you have a woven mesh mat outside your camper they don’t like you to have it out. They did improve the electric service a couple years ago. Generally pretty quiet.

Very nice camping area

Small lake with swimming area. Very clean with very nice hosts. Wow of stay here again.

Very Quiet and relaxing

The sites are along the Fox River with scattered trees and no woods. Very quiet with a very clean one at a time men’s room with a pay for shower. A real gem of a find. Would camp there again in the future.

Kettle Moraine Camp!

Right in the kettle moraine. About an hour or so away from Milwaukee. Great hiking!

Another great WI state park

Cmon, right on Lake Michigan? Ice age trail for some hiking? What more can you ask for.

A beautiful, historic place

I’ve stayed here a few times the past couple of years both in summer and winter and it’s so nice. Awesome hiking. Wonderful sites.

Good campsite if you don’t have dogs

We stayed 700, enough space, good hiking trail, nice beach. But the pet picnic area was pretty disappointing. Just a small opening for a dog jumping in the water. All the nice beach area was not open for a dog. My pup was pretty sad.

First Fam Camp

Tried out tent camping for the first time with a 5 year old and a 2 year old. Clearly were not sure how’d it go but pure success! The camp site (216) was perfect with privacy for the tent and was incredibly quiet. Not a long walk to the vault toilets and everyone was super friendly. Already planning our next stay!

Spacious sites!

Excellent county campground with some of the largest sites we’ve come across. Things we look for in a campground: space from neighbors (because of our barky dogs), shade (especially when it’s 90 degrees!) and quiet. This park checked all the boxes! The only downside is that you can’t really access the lake for swimming. (Or we couldn’t figure out where to do it) there were a few large groups camping over the weekend, but everyone respected quiet hours and shut it down early.

Staff and camp hosts are helpful and there is a small office that sells a few staples (ice, wood, snacks, etc) and only allows 5 people in at once (due to COVID) - staff were not wearing masks, but there were plexiglass partitions.

A few site selection tips:

  • There are actually four campground areas, we stayed in the area near the harbor (1-16) and the upper campground (62-71) and both were less busy and had smaller rigs than the others.
  • Harbor area: sites are well spaced, lovely trimmed grass sites with fire pits - but mixed shade. (Likely why it wasn’t as busy) Site 10 would be the best / most private in this section since it backs up to the forest and is HUGE. We stayed in 8 our first visit and it was lovely, still a large site with good shade. We moved over to site 13 for our 2nd visit, as it was larger, shaded all morning and had more privacy than 8 with only one neighbor and open to the swing set that was barely used.
  • Upper campground: AMAZING. Shade and space, space, space!! It is a totally different vibe up here, you are camped among the trees and can barely see your neighbors. We stayed in the largest / most private of the the electric sites (site 67) and we didn’t want to leave. All of the sites up here would have been great.

Cell signal: low signal (only 1 bar on Verizon - 8 down, 3 up - AT&T was better 10 up/down) booster helped for work.
