The canoe camping site is cheaper and much more secluded with view of the lake. Great experience.
Such a wonderful experience! After a bit of uncertainty about how to access the sites (they were listed some places as "canoe in") we were pleasantly surprised to see the sites were just a walk over a bridge :) All 3 canoe sites are on a small island. (We were lucky enough to be the only people camping at any of the sites!)
All of the canoe sites are great! We stayed in site #1 which was closest to the bridge (and bathroom just over the bridge ;) )- nice level site and large. Site #2 was a bit smaller but more secluded. Site #3 was large but wasn't as level (though there was WAY more water access- 3 sides of water views!) Walk to the sites was not bad at all.
I would highly recommend these 3 campsites! We saw the rest of the campground and it looked pretty standard, but these sites are a gem. Showers are at the main campground, but there is a pit toilet and water access just across the bridge near the parking area.
The park/area is really nice too! The park has a beach, small playground area, a bike trail, and some hiking areas. Nice lake to canoe or kayak on as well. Plus the nature center has programs too! The stream had turtles, crayfish, and frogs to check out as well :)
*check out the Green Circle trail and the Stevens Point Sculpture Garden if you wanna get out of the park :)
Very busy during the summer, and not really my style (I like things quieter), but on a beautiful lake/pond. It's a very popular spot with locals, as it is right outside of town.There are lots of graduation parties, family reunions, and other parties held during the summer. There is a playground a little ways away from most of the campsites, and near the beach. The boat launch is nice.The walk-in sites are wonderful, and I couldn't wish for more with regards to those. If you do want a walk-in, make sure to book it well in advance as they fill up. The walk is pretty short but the sites are nice and secluded. The park is a little bit spread out between parts, instead of being in one small area, so be prepared to do some walking.
This campground was small but just far enough from town to make it feel like you left. The only down fall was that you could hear semis on the road very clearly during the evening.
Smaller county park far enough from town to be in the wood, but close enough if you forgot anything. Close to Jordan River, and it's parks, beaches, Pavillion, and playground. They also have a nature center to explore right next door!
Pretty setting, nice little beach area to relax at or great water to kayak in.
Pretty setting, small, good start to a day long paddle down the little plover river
