It's worth repeating, Donna and Dave are lovely hosts and their property is spectacular. The views and the privacy can't be beat. The campsite is large and beautifully maintained. There is a very nice firepit, a picnic table and plenty of level space to set up camp. We were glad we had bug spray, but not too bad overall (just typical of the time of year). Flush toilets and water are available about a 1/2 mile away. Our dog had as much fun as we did. Thank you Donna and Dave for sharing your magical space! We would have loved to stay longer and hope to return!
Doesn't get much better than this!
As other reviewers have said this place is absolutely wonderful. I truly don't know if car camping gets any better than this spot. Campsite is a large mowed area, relatively level. It's on a hill top(as the name suggests) with a beautiful view of the surrounding area. The site is about 1/2 mile off a very lightly traveled road so very peaceful and private. Although no water or toilet at the site the hosts allowed use of a nearby building (~3/4 mile away) We enjoyed morning walks on the property, a couple short hikes nearby, Northern Sun winery, and evenings by the fire pit. Our dogs also had a fantastic time. Thanks Donna and Dave for sharing your property!
A very special place
After 20 plus years of hiking and exploring Northern Wisconsin and the UP I can tell you there are some very special places right in the upper midwest, this is one such place.
What makes this campsite special is something other reviewers have mentioned. Specifically how private and secluded this space feels. The campsite's location is truly unique, surrounded by higher ground in the distance , the campsite itself is on top of a ridge that overlooks a valley.
The result is a private paradise filled with plenty of space to relax, play or simply enjoy the sounds of nature.
My visit was in early summer and I enjoyed the sounds of the whippoor-wills as the sun went down. The owls awakened at dusk and the sound of playful coyotes in the valley below melted with my dreams.
I came away with a sense of gratitude not only to Donna and Dave for sharing the special gift with all of us but also to Donna's ancestors who recognized this special place and did what they could to keep it as such.
Great view !
This was just the trip my Boyfriend and I needed! It was nice to stay tucked back into the woods and have an AMAZING view! Unplugging for the weekend and being able to enjoy the outdoors and recharge was well needed. The view was amazing and the camping area was so spaced out! We’re tent campers and had a easy set up and take down and plenty of space to throw a frisbee around and set up camp. Donna and Dave were great, very nice people and provided firewood for the nights we stayed as well! 10/10 stay :) !
A true gem
This place is a true gem and I’m so glad we had a chance to stay here. We couldn’t have asked for a better view and the total privacy was exactly what we wanted. Donna kept our site stocked with plenty of firewood. Our dogs loved it too!
Our new favorite campsite
Donna’s Hilltop campsite was even better than we imagined! The hilltop view is wonderful, providing a feeling of seclusion while also being easy to get to. We liked it so much we are already looking for dates we can return.
