All of these sites have a picnic table, a fire ring or grill, access to restrooms and potable running water, and nice flat ground for your tent.

Enter the options: 1) ‘Quick and Dirty’ sites- these walk-in developed sites are a short walk from parking and are simple, no-frills sites. 2) ‘Hi-ho Silver’ sites- the equestrian sites are open to everyone but have hitching posts for horses. 3) ‘More the Merrier’ sites- the two group walk-in sites accommodate up to 24 people each. 4) ‘And the Kitchen Sink’ sites- 102 sites with 20/30 amp electricity hookups and 13 sites with 20/50 amp hookups; all 115 of these RV sites have water hookups.

Great access to a public swim area (roped off). Trails are plentiful, but they are pretty sandy due to them being used as horse trails too.

We love camping here! Some of the walk-in sites are quite a haul if you have a lot of gear so check the park map before you pick your site. Hawthorne area site #3 is perfect! Secluded but not too far from your car. Just enough distance to give you a more primitive feel but still have all your gear. This area is also right along the trail system so we were able to hop on our bikes and ride the loop through the park. Isle du Bois is our camping home away from home.

Pack light if staying at a walk-in site. Water and potty available within a reasonable distance. Public swim area is very nice and there are plenty of covered picnic areas for groups.

The beach was great! Large open area and very clean

Long walks into some of the campsites. Can get very windy by the water so make sure to protect your tent behind trees.

Hawthorn has a good primitive feel with water and bathroom relatively close (.01-.)

Consolidate your things into a bucket or small wagon because you have to walk a ways to set up camp. This is great because you even get away from your car, but if you bring a lot and don't have a way to haul it in, you'll have to make several trips to your car.
