We invite you to set up camp on our quiet shores of the Little Plover River and enjoy a break from the fast paced world. Located on 150 yards of water frontage, Plover River Retreat is situated by an old lumber mill, complete with a dam, which provides bountiful Northern Pike fishing during certain times of the year.

We have a wooded 5 acre homestead, with plenty of areas to set up your tent campsite. Trash bin and fire ring are available. We have one main site at the base of the dam, where the grass is mowed and maintained, with other areas available for additional tents. Can accommodate larger groups, but additional sites are very rustic. Each tent will be an additional charge. You are able to see our homestead from the river bottom, but natural foliage such as large ferns and trees block our view from the home most of the year, so there is privacy.

Come wade and splash in our slice of river paradise! Our water frontage is shallow, between 1-3 feet, and mostly sandy/rocky. Highly suggest water shoes for ease of walking and swimming.

If you’re more adventurous, kayaks and a canoe are available for rent and can be put in on either side of the dam. Tubes are also available for rent and can be used for a 45 minute float or a 3 hour float down the Little Plover River. It’s not uncommon to spot Bald Eagles, turtles, otter, and deer on our stretch of the river.

Each site is a short 3-4 minute walk from our main home where we are available to field any questions or address emergencies. Shores are quiet and mostly undeveloped. We are a 15 minute drive to Stevens Point, and a 25 minute drive to Wausau.

Firewood available for purchase on site. Flexible check in/check out policy.

The space was cleared out really well we put up 3 tents no problem. The dam was so cool to have right by us, the sound was calming especially at night. Although it's very private we were still comfortably close enough to town if we needed anything. The privacy tent and bathroom was nice to have even though we didn't use it much, there is a campsite close by where you can use the bathroom until 11. Hosts were absolutely amazing, answered all of our questions and accommodated us in every way.

Sorry about our dogs! We went out and got a wireless fence system to avoid this problem in the future. Thank you for your feedback!
