A wonderful small campground on the Thornapple River out of Ladysmith, WI. The cost will be $30 a night for electric and water and $25 for a tent. I have reserved 6 electric sites with room for a tent between them all along the river. You can pay when you arrive. A great place to relax, go for a walk or maybe enjoy kayaking the area rivers.

Come to Cascade for the rushing river and grand waterfalls that lay within a gorge, lush with moss and ferns that grow on black volcanic rocks. Hike the trail through birch, spruce and white cedar; stop to see the views of Lake Superior, the largest freshwater lake in the world. Trails connect with the Superior Hiking Trail and the North Shore State Trail. You each need to make your own site reservations and they’re going fast. We’ll meet at my site for an evening campfire and cooking if interested. See you there.

Travel just about an hour to find an island of woods in the vast oak savanna prairie which now makes up Nerstrand Big Woods State Park. Sugar maple, basswood, oak, hickory, aspen, elm, ash, and ironwood trees shade the land. Over 200 varieties of wildflowers, along with countless varieties of ferns and mushrooms grew in the Big Woods. In the summer relax by the Hidden Falls. On Saturday, will venture out to Fairbault for the Blue Collar BBQ Music & Arts Fest with headliner Martin Zellar & the Hardways. I’ve reserved site 39E. If you want to come camp along, there’s several sites available that are both electric and non-electric. For those of you who hate the long drives, this one is for you!
