Large campground near hiking trails

There are 2 large campgrounds split into east and west. A check-in station is down the road but this year you need to reserve online. 

We found plenty of variety in the campsites. Some were open and sunny while most had a greenery driveway before opening out into your camp area. We found open sites during the week but the weekend filled up every site- that’s a lot of campers.

There are some outdoor recreation areas all nearby. The Ice Age Trail goes through. You can backpack a long way through Wisconsin on it but my older dog prefers day hiking sections. Just before the outdoor areas begin was a small store. We had Verizon cell service here too.

This Kettle Moraine forest is a perfect few hours from Chicago and provides a beautiful respite in nature.
