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.

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

Comfortable

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.

Decent

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.

Love Boulder Junction! Always a great time to spend 4th of July ❤️🎉🎊

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.

Nice place cheap

Great campground 20$ a nite with electric and water!!!!!Some have sewer. Beautiful walking trail along river. Quiet. Campsite for tents and RV. Call for directions lol The gps takes you to the old back entrance. The owner was an awesome lady she helped us find a repair guy for a breakdown. They do not take credit cards !!

Some sights could be mowed but hey for this price and this location so what!! Definitely will return

Decent

Spots are very close to each other and not secluded. Trails from the campground to the beach and fishing are were nice. Unfortunately when we went a group of drunk kids came and picked the spot next to us and were very loud and wandered through our spot looking for wood and the trail.

Great

Loved the hike in, decided to walk the whole loop and unfortunately the bridge at the end was under water and we had to turn around and walk back instead. Lake was gorgeous and the hike in wasn’t too bad.

Love

Very hospitable. Sites were large and well cared for. Trails, parks, and a beach. Very affordable kayak and canoe rentals. Friendly staff. Wood for sale on site, fishing pole rentals, tennis courts. Will definitely come back!

Wouldn’t suggest

Most of the sites looked like they had been deserted for years. A few good sites for campers though. The primitive camp sites couldn’t fit a tent if you tried. Bathroom was clean but no one at front desk or to answer my calls.

Great place

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

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 a nice beach area and fantastic disc golf course!

Love this place

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.

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.

Ok

No power, no water, clean pit toilets, beautiful water view sites, no dump station, LOTS of mosquitos. Hoped to stay a few nights, chased out by mosquitoes after first one.

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.

Great camp for UP fishing and hiking

Stayed here 2 nights and fished the lake in a 3 person boat. The lake is non-motorized and even though we were there the week of 4th of July, there were very few other campers. Only 1 or 2 other boats on the lake all through our stay, and some swimmers at the beach, the lake being non-motorized was very quiet and peaceful. Boat landing is gravel and a tad washed out, but fully usable for the small trolling boats that are allowed here. There were 3 RVs at some sites closer to the campground entrance but besides the occasion generator, they were very quiet and kept to themselves. Caught lots of Brook trout, smallmouth, and other panfish. Apparently large Northern reside in the depths, though we weren't lucky enough to hook one of the monsters hiding in the middle of this 80' deep lake. There is a small island that looks accessible by boat or swimming across the sandbar from the beach, but we didn't make land, just looked at its beauty from the water. There is a nesting bald eagle we continously saw while fishing as well as a young eagle hiding in a large tree near our site. There are also a pair of loons who weren't hard to spot every few minutes. Campsites are varying sizes and decently spaced, although some seem to be a little close together, it wasn't hard to get a good site on the lake with no neighbors. Every site has a picnic table, lantern hooks and a large metal fire ring with a heavy duty attached grill grate. Bathrooms are decent and centrally placed. Sunsets were fantastic, lake is crystal clear. Bugs are insane, but it's a part of the territory. Be prepared to make battle with the huge mosquito population of the Northwoods. Other than that, gorgeous location, secluded and pristine but only 6 miles to some amenities and attractions in Watersmeet, with a tavern and even the casino just a short drive away.
