We own a 39 acre property on the east side of Ashland, WI. There are three primitive/walk in (no water available, no facilities, no tables) campsites available and a couple of trails. More trails to come. Enjoy the night sky as many, many stars are visible. The property is mostly wooded and can be wet in spots during the spring. You are allowed walk the site off trail at your own risk. Please park your vehicle as close to one side of the driveway as possible as not to block the driveway so if needed the tower company has access to the tower. Please do not walk in the cleared area near the front of the property to the right of driveway/access road, as this area has been planted with Christmas tree saplings. There is a dedicated campfire square in the site. Please do not burn outside of this area. There is plenty of dead and down firewood to collect in the nearby woods – some may need to cut to size. There are no garbage cans on site, so please pack out what you pack in. Hike to the sites: Campsite 1 – Near County Highway A – just past gate. Large enough for two 4 person tents Campsite 2 – From gate - .10 mile hike – large enough for a 4 person tent Campsite 3 – From gate - .13 mile hike – large enough for a 3 person tent What is nearby?

I don't get any of this service fee and they also take an additional 10% from the price I list to cover the $1 million in insurance for you.

Site 3 - Back in the woods
Great little spot tucked away from people. Enjoyed the solitude immensely!

Nice, large and away from town
Campsite was very large to accommodate if you were to choose to bring pets. It was nice because we felt like we were away from the touristy-ness of the apostle islands, but yet close enough to go out and hike and see Madeleine island. It’s about a 40 minute drive to Bayview. I also enjoyed not having any campers nearby. However, our first night there was someone in a distance constantly yelling at their dog. Not loud enough to ruin our stay. And you can hear traffic going by. I am giving the site a 4 because The woods are very dense so it was a challenge to make a spot in the woods to go to the bathroom, but possible. We found 1 tree through the brush that would help with holding up food from Bears and critters. Otherwise, most of the trees are small and skinny. The tree styles also made it challenging to find a place to hang a solar shower, but we made it work.

Primitive camping
This is a very primitive camping spot. Right off a road that is not heavily trafficked, nice and secluded, but very buggy in the summer time. Mosquitos were off the chain, but they always bother me wherever I go. Lots of ticks we noticed on the second night and morning, but it is a nice spot with a fire allowed which did help with the bugs slightly. If you are looking for a space with just some land to pitch a tent it’s perfect. Quiet area. Definitely heard some coyotes in the field nearby, but they didn’t bother us at all. The stars were really great as well.

Good Price, Good Site
Secluded on it’s own, but a few minutes drive from the Oasis, a classic Wisconsin tavern where a local told a delightful tale about his dogs (and their breeding line) over a rum ‘n’ Coca-Cola (though probably fountain Pepsi, speaking of lines.) Bring bug spray when you come, but do come!

Primitive camping in Ashland
Location and price is prime. Kevin was very communicative after booking. Cell service was great for me. Lots of food options and walking trails nearby, as well as a dog park. Book site #1 if you don’t want to carry all your supplies to the site! Your car will not be parked at the site. The mosquitos are horrible but I’m sure that is to be expected.
