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 like the boulder junction area for camping. You are just outside the super crowded areas near the minocqua chain, and there are some campgrounds you can only reach by canoe.

If you want to escape and splurge for a good dinner somewhere, you can do that too.

I don't think the beauty of Wisc. is in one particular place or one particular time of day or year. When the sun is out after new snow, as the sun rises or sets over Lake Mich or any other lake, or just driving down a road surrounded by trees. You get pretty un-picky after you live in someplace like west Texas for an extended period of time.

I spent the day at Kohler-Andrae State Park yesterday. Have not been there in ages. It's so beautiful. It has an almost oceanic feel since Lake Michigan is large... there are nice sandy beaches and trails to explore. The sun was shining, the birds were singing, dozens of dragonflies were buzzing everywhere. I definitely would recommend visiting! The cost was $8 for a day pass. Totally worth it.

PS. there were quite a few open campsites in the campgrounds, surprisingly. They're pretty decently spaced out, as well. You're not right on top your camping neighbors.

Best camping in WI for me has been Rock Island, Peninsula State Park and Wyalusing State Park (get the bluff top spots overlooking the Mississippi River).

I like the driftless in general, the the Mississippi and Wisconsin River bluffs in particular.

Another place I like but get to very rarely is the shoreline of Lake Superior, esp the ridge and swale areas

Several times out to northern Maine for genealogy with sisters & mother. Now I know why my great-great grandparents relocated to Wisconsin. Topography is so very similar--both states are beautiful--northern Wisconsin & Maine especially.

Sylvania area in North Eastern Wisconsin is also an area only reached by kayak or canoe; some islands take some portaging--limit to bare necessities and take fishing poles! Camp on an island, alone! We hit the whole of Northern Wisconsin traveling from State Park to State Park (Port Wing to Ashland, going down east and west, too. Look around Mountain, Wisconsin, for some wonderful State Parks with extremely low tourists. Got to find the out of the way State Parks. They have showers and restroom facilities. Campsites are gorgeous and quite separate from each other. Seems like camping alone. They have showers and restroom facilities. Campsites are gorgeous and quite separate from each other. These State Parks seem like you're camping alone (not as camping on an island, though). Beautiful (clean) lakes, too! We call Minoqua little Illinois--and it's getting bigger and bigger each year. Hard to find the local residents unless they have the tourists shops, etc.

What happened to the posting regarding tib and fib offset bones with rebreaking and healing? That's why I jumped over to this extension of the original postings (since it is no more). Looks like April 2016 was the last related posting on that site. Really need information on this subject. Anyone out there feeling the same?
