Welcome to Blazing Bear Homestead located in the Town of Peshtigo, Wisconsin just up the road from the Peshtigo Harbor State Wildlife Area and the Peshtigo River Delta Marshes State Natural Area.
Our little piece of heaven is carved out of a large forested area, and across the road from us is beautiful upland prairie all in its natural state. We have some trails on our property that bring you to your campsite, and back to the farm and garden closer to our house.
We keep a small herd of miniature dairy goats and often have goat kids running around. There is also free-range chickens, a goose named Goose-Goose, a few giant rabbits, and 2 farm cats that are very friendly. Our campers are welcome to hang out with our critters.
Just 7 minutes away in the City of Peshtigo is Badger Park where you can swim, picnic, play volleyball, or enjoy the skate park; all for FREE! There is also a fenced horseshoe pit, brand new modern playground, and a disc golf course.
The areas above and below the dam in Peshtigo are popular fishing spots that contain warm water fish populations of northern pike, walleye, large mouth bass and pan fish. In recent years the area below the dam has become a popular brown and rainbow trout fishing area.
The Peshtigo Harbor boat launch is just an 8 minute drive from our homestead.
This area offers a vibrant, rural community full of friendly people. There are a wide variety of outdoor activities within close reach. Opportunities for camping, boating, fishing, and sightseeing added to tours of our many area museums will make your stay as relaxing, informative, or invigorating as you choose it to be. Our natural beauty coupled with the friendliness of our small town atmosphere will make your stay enjoyable and, we hope, keep you coming back for more.Pitch your tent in our Old Birch Site where you'll have a fire ring ready to go, and complete privacy. Campers are welcome to explore our little trail system on the property, relax in our hammocks, tour the gardens, and visit our farm animals.
It is a 2 minute walk from the driveway, where you'll park your vehicle, to your site. If requested, we can have our ATV ready to transport your belongings so you don't have to carry them (or if you've brought your own ATV, you can drive it to your site).
When you camp at Blazing Bear Homestead, you're camping in an area that was burned in the historic Peshtigo Fire in 1871 and we highly recommend visiting the Fire Museum in Peshtigo.
We have public trails, free beaches, boat and kayak launches, a skate park, disc golf course, modern playground and much more all within a 10 minute drive.
