Nice area. Awkward check in.

We arrived at Lake of the Pines knowing sites were reservable. We didn't know they had to be reserved. There were no less than eleven signs at the entrance. You could purchase a vehicle pass required for entry but could not pay for camping. The instructions said to call a telephone number. With…

  • Actually twelve signs counting the vehicle permit box.
  • Interesting benches made by the Wisconsin Conservation Corps. Many are decayed.
  • Sunset. Lake of the Pines

We loved it

We loved brunet island state park and will definitely go back. We went right after Labor Day weekend and it was still half full with campers. We enjoy mid week camping so it’s not so busy. Beware the raccoons are ninjas and will definitely come visit. We kayaked and hiked a couple times and loved…

Pretty standard commercial campground -- open field with a few trees. Sites would have been very close together if they were all in use but many were empty during my visit. Walking path to an area that overlooks the Chippewa River was nice.

Great Canoe and Backwoods Place– Maybe Not the Place for Families

The State Forest is very beautiful. There is a lake as well as the Flambeau River to explore. There are two campgrounds, Lake of the Pines which has 30 non-electric sites and Connor Lake which has 3 electric sites and 26 non-electric. All sites have a picnic table and a fire ring. There are no play…

Great rustic camping!

This campground is further from civilization but is still paved. The road was a bit rough but easily manageable. We went online to find a weekend campground and this was o e with 3 sites left. Even if you show up without a reservation, the sign said to go online or call to claim the spot(Verizon…

Quiet, Relaxing

It’s a small campground, not a lot of campsites. There is electric and water service available. The hosts will pump your tanks for a $10 fee. The Thorneapple River is a sleepy, winding river. There are campsites right on the river. You can float or wade in it; it’s shallow and refreshing. Great…

Excellent Spring Camping

Beautiful campground. Early season camping, only a few other sites reserved. First time here, would definitely go back, and bring a canoe. I imagine the sites would be fairly private once the leaves fill in for the season. Great nature trail, saw a porcupine, heard loons and an owl. Amazing stars…

Wide Open RV Park

This is a very nice RV Park. There’s plenty of sites and they appear to be expanding. Sites are fairly spread out. Easy loop system makes this campground very easy to navigate through. It’s definitely not the most private campground, so it your looking for rustic quiet I would look into some of the…

Great camping!!

This is a great place to camp. We have been back a few times. They have sites on the lake and off. If you can get a site on the water I highly recommend. There is a trail between the site and the water but still is great. The bathrooms were always nice and clean with hot showers. Not much for…

Site 44

September/2020 Site was nice. We didn't have anyone next to us (site 46), if we had, it would have felt less private. Not many trees between sites 44-48. Site is set back and right on the waterfront, could launch a canoe/kayak. Definitely one of the better views and water was clear. On the other…

Quiet and clean

Only campground that had open availability at the last minute. Everyone was very friendly and campground was clean. Fire pit and picnic table included. They were flexible on the check out time. It is a great place to stay if you want to float down the Chippewa River, Loopy’s the bar in town will…

Beautiful, Remote

We stayed 3 nights at site number 9 in the midst of the pandemic. Overall fairly quiet and private. One side of site 9 is a parking area. Our site had a wooded trail down to the flowage and onto the Mondeaux Esker Trail segment of the Ice Age Trail (“East” segment - most people use the dam as their…
