Camping in the State Parks

Guest Author - Sharon Bejin

If camping is something you are thinking about, then check your state DNR website to locate a campground in your area. Whether you camp in a tent or a recreational vehicle, you will enjoy the accommodations that many state parks have to offer.

The parks are very accommodating with amenities to suit those who want to get outdoors yet still have a few necessities. You will find ample showers, flush toilets, paved hiking and biking trails, and dump stations for those who have an RV. The state parks workers do a great job maintaining the parks.

If you are interested in hiking, there are many trails throughout the parks. In Wisconsin, Bradyís Bluff in Perrot State Park near Trempealeau and the bluff at Devilís Lake State Park near Baraboo are available to visitors. Both are 500 feet high with more steps than you can count. This trail is a welcome challenge for some but can be a dreaded climb for others. Either way, once at the top you will enjoy the spectacular view!

If you are not up to a strenuous climb, you can also enjoy walking on the groomed trails in the park. Most of the trails are level and hiking is easier. You can enjoy taking a stroll on the blacktopped roads around the campground. Biking trails are also plentiful for those who want a faster-paced activity. The states parks have miles and miles of trails to accommodate bikers.

Many state parks in Wisconsin have numerous campsites. You can choose one that is located near other campers or go off the beaten path and try out the walk-in campsites. They are more rustic and challenge campers with limited amenities. Be ready to carry your camping items into your site since vehicles are not allowed in these areas.

What I really appreciate is the consideration campers have for others. They keep their noise level to a minimum, especially at night when you are relaxing by the fire. Of course, like anything else, there are exceptions. Most parks sell firewood so you can enjoy a nice warm fire after a day of activities. Just remember to bring the marshmallows!
