Camping in Wisconsin

Want to camp in over 2.6 million acres of parks? Come to “The Badger State” (Wisconsin, as most people know it). Odds are that you’ll find yourself camping by the lakeshore, which your kids will love! Take them to a nearby historical site, out for some fresh cheese curds, or to a cultural event. For years to come, they’ll be talking about the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore, the beaches of Door County, and the rock formations at Devil’s Lake State Park.
