Whether you are looking for the closest Wisconsin State Park or are planning a last-minute Wisconsin camping trip, this map of Wisconsin Campgrounds will help you find the campground options around your destination.
Over the years, we’ve found that Google doesn’t always show us all our camping options when planning our Wisconsin road trip adventures. For example, it often misses the stunning National Forest Campgrounds.
I’m not sure why this is. But to combat this problem, we put together this map of all of the campgrounds in Wisconsin to visualize our options when planning trips.
It’s also a super helpful map to have with you while you are traveling in Wisconsin and need to find a campground along your driving route.
So, if you want to see what campgrounds you can choose for your next Wisconsin camping adventure, this map is for you.
It contains all of the National Forest, State Parks, and County Parks with campgrounds to enjoy.
The map also contains some of the private campgrounds we’ve found while trip planning.
We update this map as we find more available campgrounds.
I hope this map helps you find all your Wisconsin camping options. And if you also camp in Michigan, check out our Map of Michigan Campgrounds.
Below the map, we’ll list some of our favorite campgrounds in Wisconsin.
Let’s go camping!

Favorite Campgrounds in Wisconsin
This list will give you our favorite campgrounds that we’ve stayed at in Wisconsin.
Now, we have barely scratched the surface when it comes to exploring all of these campgrounds. But I still wanted to share our favorites to help you find your next favorite Wisconsin campground.
Favorite Wisconsin State Parks and Forests Campgrounds
There are so many gorgeous Wisconsin State Parks that it’s hard to pick a favorite. We even asked Wisconsin State Park lovers what their favorite Wisconsin State Parks are, and the answers were all over the place.
Each park is beautiful for its own reasons. But here are a few that we love to revisit repeatedly.
Northern Highland American Legion State Forest
The Northern Highland American Legion State Forest is huge and located in three counties near Minocqua and Boulder Junction.
You can find modern and rustic campgrounds in this Wisconsin State Forest. We’ve only stayed at the modern campgrounds so far.
Our favorite modern campgrounds are Firefly Lake and Crystal Lake. We love the lakeside campsites at each of these campgrounds.
But our main reason for loving these campgrounds is their easy access to the Heart of Vilas County Bike system.
Brunet Island State Park
This one is for all the water lovers who love to fish, canoe, or kayak.
Brunet Island State Park is located near Chippewa Falls, and we were amazed at how much we loved this park.
It’s a rustic campground, but the views can not be beat. Try to get a site on the Chippewa River side, as we felt those views were a tad bit better.
Copper Falls State Park
We loved Copper Falls State Park for its accessible and stunning waterfalls.
Both the Doughboy Trail and the trail to Red Granite Falls are great hikes. And both can be done in one day.
Favorite Wisconsin County campgrounds
If you are familiar with camping in Wisconsin State Parks, you know how difficult it can be to reserve a campsite during the summer months.
And that is where the Wisconsin County Campgrounds are your friend.
We love checking out Wisconsin County Campgrounds on our Wisconsin road trips and can’t wait to explore more.
Here are some of our favorites so far.
Big Eau Pleine County Park – Marathon County
Big Eau Pleine County Park, located near Wausau, is a quiet park with many lakeside campsites. It’s a rustic campground with a beach and even a disc golf course.
Morgan County Park – Marinette County
The parks in Marinette County are some of the best we’ve seen in Wisconsin. They are clean, and you can tell the County takes pride in their county park system.
Morgan County Park is a beautiful park with a stunning beach and is located close to several other county parks in Marinette.
Marinette County is known as the waterfall capital of Wisconsin, and you could spend two days doing a waterfall tour.
Favorite Wisconsin National Forest Campgrounds
We think National Forest Campgrounds throughout the United States are hidden gems. These campgrounds tend to be quiet and surrounded by natural beauty.
Bagley Rapids is a small campground along the Oconto River, and about 10 of the 30 campsites are along the river’s shore.
This small campground is quiet and perfect for those seeking to escape crowds. The park is near hikes, and the trout fishing in the river is next level.
