The 'glow' in Glowconsin is definitely from the awesome fire pit. It is HUGE and I'm certain the glow from a full fire in that pit could be seen from a long ways away. Bring your own outdoor cooking equipment tho - it's too big to cook on. The toilet facilities were very clean, the site was private and quiet. We completely enjoyed our stay at Glowconsin.

We happened to choose an unseasonable ecool weekend, which cut down what we had planned to do in the lakes in the area. That was not anybody's fault. The campsite itself was clean and private and very large. We had one large tent one small tent a screen house and a teardrop trailer, and had no problems accommodating all of them. The host, Susie, could not have been friendlier or more congenial in our conversations through email and text. I would recommend it, and would consider coming back when the weather warms up a little bit.

Glowconsin was a nice spot in the woods. I am sure one could enjoy the Glow more at different times depending on mosquitoes. They were bad in July this year. Loved the price and being able to pop up all the necessary tents. Not as open as the picture shows but I loved the pine forest. Lake was a bit of a distance so I am not if you access from property or not. Didn't seem to be a trail anywhere. We drove to beach on the lake and had a nice hour there before driving on. There may have been a fee but it is unclear and no one around.
