Situated on Wisconsin’s eastern peninsula, just an hour’s drive northeast of Green Bay, Tranquil Timbers RV Resort is an ideal destination for relaxing on Sturgeon Bay and exploring Door County’s local attractions. Right next door, Potawatomi State Park offers several miles of hiking and biking trails, paddling and fishing on Sturgeon Bay, and several picnic areas and playgrounds. Just a few minutes drive away, Gardner Swamp Wildlife Area is a lowland forest and marsh preserve that offers good bird and wildlife watching. There are also several golf courses in the area, as well as fishing in Green Bay for walleye, northern pike, bass and trout. For a taste of the local flavor and culture, the nearby communities offer a variety of shops, art galleries, eateries, and annual festivals worth checking out, and several of the peninsula’s 10 lighthouses are open for touring.

Tranquil Timbers advertises pet friendly but they ARE NOT pet friendly. If your dog makes any kind of noise whatsoever, they are NOT welcome. Motorcycles and noisy kids however, park approved!
This campground’s location was great! It was easy to bike into sturgeon bay and awesome to be able to bike in the potowatomi state forest. There are some awesome views at this campground too because it’s close to the bay. A great place to spend a weekend!
It has a pool for kids both older and small. It’s very peaceful and quiet. I felt we got a lot of rest at night because it was so quiet you could hear a pin drop most nights and we were afraid to disturb the elderly next to us with permanent site who were extremely territorial of their perimeter. It was a little too uptight and not enough “fun” for kids in general. We made the best out of it and ventured out of the park for fun. Bathrooms and showers were clean. Store is incredibly small and shelves are nearly bare. Staff is really nice and helpful. Pool was clean and well maintained.
This is one of those campgrounds you should go to if you have a big group, so you can avoid being bored. There just isn't a lot to do (outside of the fact you are in Door County), plus it is pricey. I'd just assume go to Peninsula State Park instead for a much better camping experience for a small fraction of the price.
