On the verge of retirement - love to camp and plan to travel the country camping.
Baraga State Park - not a place to camp if you want any sleep

Baraga is an interesting place to visit - but don't plan to camp here. The campground is literally a few yards from Interstate 41 - the trucks and noise make it impossible to catch any shut eye from any site in the park.

Campsites are small and when we went, totally muddy (Mid July) There is a small hole in the wall casino nearby. We golfed at a course a little north and it was like golfing in a cow pasture, but prices were right up there. (Had to take motion sickness pills to survive the ride back to the club house after only 5 holes.) Lake Superior is beautiful and there was a good steak house within 15 minutes.

Fort Wilkin, at the northern tip of the Keweenaw Peninsula is not worth the drive.

The park is on the shores of Lake Winnebago and the sunsets are fabulous!

The park:

  • is well kept
  • showers & bathrooms are very clean
  • has a marina
  • has hiking and cross country ski trails
  • sites are spacious
  • many sites available on the edge of the water
  • electric hookups on most sites
  • some very private sites
  • a few close restaurants
  • Camp staff is always helpful and friendly.
  • Picnic table, & fire pit at every site
  • They take reservations, sell firewood, have a camp store, allow pets on leash, allow alcohol
