Great Weekend retreat in the northwoods

Great rustic campground in northern WI. Quiet, relaxing on a lake with little to no mosquitoes. Clean vault toilets, dumpsters, and fresh drinking water. Take note no cell service.

Beautiful,relaxing, beware of mosquitos!

Make sure to be equipped with lots of powerful mosquito repellant. Other than that, it was beautiful, had nice warm swimming water, was relaxing, and not heavily populated. 15 bucks for a campsite
