Overview

Best Tent Camping: Wisconsin, now completely updated for a third edition, continues to lead tent campers to the best of Wisconsin’s varied recreational sites. Each profile includes a detailed campground layout map, GPS coordinates, descriptive text, and ratings for security, quiet, and beauty.

Wisconsin is rich in both human and natural history. Originally settled by aboriginal Americans who used the ample rivers and lakes for travel, French voyageurs and United States pioneers followed, exploring a land shaped by glaciers and time. Green Bay and Prairie du Chien were settled first as furs, lead, and lumber attracted more settlers. The vast and varied landscape was evident to all who came to the Badger State. They saw sand dune–laden shores of Lake Michigan, lake-studded highlands of the North Woods, the ridges and valleys of the southwest, where the Wisconsin and Mississippi rivers cut deep swaths through the land, and the deep gorges cut by dark, fast-flowing rivers forming waterfalls striving for Lake Superior.

Today tent campers can enjoy these parcels, each distinct regions of Wisconsin. You can explore the surprisingly hilly terrain of Sidie Hollow, near the Illinois border. The bluffs of Perrot State Park overlook Minnesota. The central state has the remote and wild Black River State Forest, where timber wolves have reclaimed their old domain, with the quiet of East Fork campground returning you to nature. Here also are the big waters of Castle Rock Flowage, where Buckhorn’s numerous walk-in tent camping sites await. A tent camper has to take two ferries to reach Rock Island State Park, Wisconsin’s "furthest northeast" point. So many lakes dot Wisconsin’s North Woods that you can literally camp on two lakes at once, such as Birch Grove campground in the Chequamegon National Forest, or Luna Lake/White Deer Lake campground in the Nicolet National Forest. And then there are the waterfalls of the North Woods. Marinette County calls itself the waterfall capital of Wisconsin. Two campgrounds in this book are situated along falls in Marinette County, with many other cascades nearby. Yet other falls are featured at other parks in this book.

All this spells paradise for the tent camper. No matter what destination you have in mind, Best Tent Camping: Wisconsin is your indispensable guide.

    Larkfrost and Hollykit

    The pale gray she-cat padded in, Icykit in her jaws. She set her daughter down, and waited for the other two, Stormykit and Hollykit. Seeing Shellpool, she purred,"Hello! How is everything?" ~Larkfrost
    <p>
    The tiny black she-cat was carried into the nursery, and was set down by her mother. She mewled, curling into Larkfrost's soft belly fur. ~Hollykit

    Shellpool & Sleetkit

    Brookkit can talk! Lol, she's two moons, by the way.)) Shellpool smiles, extremely happy to see her younger. She would have tackled her, would there not have been kits around. "Oh, Larkfrost!" She purrs, not answering her question. "It's been so long since I have seen you!" She looks at Sleetkit, sighing. She nudges him, then points her muzzle to Larkfrost to let him know that she was going over to her. She then pads over to Larkfrost, nuzzling her sister. "How are /you/ doing? How are you feeling, being a first time mother? I know you must be so happy, just seeing those little bundles of joy!" She laughs softly, adding. "Hey, I know I'm gonna sound like mom when I say this, but my, my! You have grown so much! I remember when you were just a little kit!" She reminises (know I spelt it wrong..) about the last, sighing with joy.. <br> Sleetkit watches his mother's mouth move, but he hears no noise coming from anybody. He shrinks back inti the dark corner of the den, feeling so vulnerable. If only he could hear....he thinks.

    Lilywolf to Horseclan - The Nursery

    To the right

    Lilywolf to Horseclan - The Nursery <br />

    <br />

    To the right side of the clearing grows a lilac bush. The sweet smell of its flowers radiates through the air and would normally only be overpowered by the smell of milk. Inside are several extra large mossy nests, perfect for a queen and her litter. Moss balls litter the leafy floor, a testament to only one of the many favorite games played here by kits. This den will shelter the very future of Horseclan forever with its strong branches and cozy warmth. Even if the queens aren't ready to give up their kits eventually their time of playing and innocence will be over. But they will grow to become parents themselves and continue the clan, ensuring a never ending cycle that will continue until memory fades. ~ The Nursery, Lilywolf
