Coming Home

My husband and I stayed at this campground on our way home from Canada. Essentially this was our last resort campground because all the other ones that we had been close to our full. As we continue down our list of calling campgrounds this was the one that was still available. At first sight we were unimpressed but upon arrival of our campsite which was located in the Wagonwheel segment turned out not to be so bad.

Traveling with a friend

I visited mirror state park in Wisconsin on Friday, July 7 where I met up with a backpacking friend who is hiking the IceAge. This is where he stopped to meet up with me we had a decent campsite number 15 had a nice Sanpat for tents couple trees for a hammock tent and they allowed me to park my car for four days.

Living on the edge

When we first arrived to Interstate State Park our very first thought was "that this is awful". We hoped that our campsite that we had reserved was not as equals to those on the lower end of the northside, very open space more field like then camp ground to us. And then we came upon our site.With a waterfall on the back side and saint croix river on the other. I could not asked for a better site.

Rained Out

Our sire was nice for a inside loop. However we got rained out and having a five year old little girl, a 14wk old puppy, and a newbie camper almost four others we could only take so much rain. A good site would definitely will be reappeared.

Tallest WI waterfall

We stopped here on our way home from Canada and it was not as impressive as we thought. Being Wisconsin's tallest waterfall the park itself was well manicured and very touristy setup. Most likely for people safety you couldn't get close to the waterfalls however being backpackers this really bummed us out. However we did invent air canoeing.

Beach Day

This is by far my favorite Beach near my hometown. It's small quaint and everybody usually has a good time.

Quick decision

This Campground is close to family that lives up in Appleton. Upon arrival we chose say 93 on the inner circle do to all reserved apples were taken and we had choices of walk-ins. This site had several rocks several spiders big wide open and can see the neighbors however it was a quick easy setup for a nighttime arrival.

quick decisions

This is always a nice campsite for us on our way up to family that lives in Appleton we always choose to Camp instead of stay in a hotel. This particular time we chose site 93 due to all reservable Sites were taken and all we have left to choose from at 9:45 at night where walk-ins. Although the site was rocky wide open I could see my neighbors and full of spiders it was actually a decent place to easily set up in the dark and grab a quick night's sleep.

Best site

My favorite site over looks the lake. At dusk the reflection leaves me speechless. I don't swim in the lake be sure I have come across my fair share of snakes and goose pop.
