I’ve hiked into the Ice Age Trail/Kayak sites for three summers in a row now, and I’ve been pleased each time. The hike is roughly 1 mile from the lots, and the sites are beautifully placed in dunes right on Lake Michigan. There are pit toilets near the sites. These sites offer some of the best beachfront camping I’ve experienced. The hike can be challenging, as the surrounding woods are swampy, even more so during rainy times. That’s to be expected, especially when primitive camping.
Nice beach/swimming area, bike path, and playground for the kids. Also the most beautiful sunset over the lake and pines in July
I’d say Derge Park is one of those get out of town but not of town parks. It right next to Beaver Lake. Witch is a great fishing lake. Or just to kayak. The boat launch is right across the park. There are not a lot of sites inside and out side bathroom with showers
We have been to Menomonee park several times. It is one of the kids favorites. The sites are just about all wooded. Not huge but a good size for a country park. Most offer decent separation from your neighbor. The Ranger will come by often with wood to buy. There are a few group sites separate from the family camping. Large but in wide open fields. The park has a lot of trails for hiking, biking and some horse trails. The quarry is good for swimming, kayaking, or canoeing. There is a beach with life guards.
