They are both in the same population density class. Clam Lake is a slightly bigger wilderness area in terms of lower population density over a larger area. Alvin is a bit closer to touristy areas, directly east of Eagle River, so not quite as isolated.

Amnicon Falls is great. It's been years since I was there though. I would combine it with a trip to other nearby parks or forests, like maybe Pattison State Park (Big and Little Manitou Falls) or Brule River Forest, as the park itself is actually quite small and you probably wouldn't spend a ton of time there when it isn't summer, when you could spend much of the day wading and splashing around in the Amnicon River. Also, there isn't a ton of hiking (maybe a couple miles' worth) in the park itself. The picnic grounds are lovely though.

There are some nice forest and hiking trails in Northern Highland. My family has a place on Muskellunge Lake pretty much right between St. Germain and Eagle River, and there are plenty of forest trails that I check out that take you to small lakes that are basically untouched. Can definitely be an enjoyable time.

I thought I would bump this thread since we are in the heart of camping season. Is there anymore suggestions?

We just got back from what seems to be annual trip to The Black Hills, SD. This year we thought instead of traveling out state let's focus on Wisconsin. We have only been to 3 camp grounds in the state; Wildcat Mountain, Pinewoods(Ottawa) which is basically camping in the Milwaukee suburbs and Newport State Park(backpack camping).

So the plan this year is Copper Falls, Amnicon Falls, Kohler Andre, Devils lake.

Found this little list of best camping in Wisconsin however it seems to be weighted toward the more popular parks.

I noticed that recently they've posted at Devil's Lake about swimmer's itch being present (seems it happens somewhat regularly there). Can't say how long it lasts or if it is found at both sides of the lake or just one.
I'm not much of a camper unless its on family property but i do know there are a couple other state parks that seem to do well in that aspect: Mirror Lake (near Devil's Lake) and also Governor Dodge which has a couple nice lakes for swimming/kayaking.

Perrot State Park is another great one for family trips. Canoe the backwaters and hike the hills overlooking the Mississippi.


If you want some great campgrounds closer to Milwaukee and with nice amenities for public campgrounds, look at Dodge County. Specifically Ledge Park and Astico Park have been fun for our family. Astico doesn't have a beach, but kids played in the river and enjoyed the park anyway. Usually reservations are available at these with much less lead time than the state parks and they would be within an hour or so of Milwaukee.

Devils Lake in Wisconsin Dells is a good area and I was there last year for my senior class trip though I hardly did anything because it wasn't my interest. I live in Laona and there is a lot of trees up here and a lot of hunting areas in this neck of the woods.


Historically Laona and Wabeno have been loggin areas.
