Lake Dubay Shores Campground, Mosinee WI

This weekend our travels took us to Central Wisconsin. We headed to Lake Dubay Shores Campground in Mosinee which is located right on the Wisconsin River.

The campground has a few lake side sites that can be rented overnight, but most of the lake sites are occupied by seasonals.  We did book early (just under a year ago) and were able to nab two in a prime location.  There are also several sites right across from these sites that friends were able to book.  The lake sites are not large.  They are outlined with trees and fairly easy to get into. The 40′ Class A and 32′ Class C fit perfectly.  We were able to park in an L shape maximizing our space and giving us a great view of the water.

Sites have water and electric hook up (20 and 30 amp.) There are also full hook up sites available closer to the office.  There are two small playgrounds and a game room. The camp store is a decent size with a nice selection of stuff.  They do sell wood by the gator full and deliver it to your site for you. The campground staff was friendly- just make sure to have your parking pass showing at all times or you will get stopped to make sure you have registered.


The campground has a boat landing for registered campers to use as well as boat docks that can be rented.  They also rent small boats, peddle boats and pontoon boats. There is a small swimming area with a grassy park next to it.  There are a couple of picnic tables and large swings available if you are watching others swim or just enjoying the water.  The swim area has a lily pad and a shallow area for the little kids to play in and big kids to stand in.  .



We also had stair access and a path down the hill to the boat docks that were closest to our sites

There was only only one bathroom with flush toilets and showers whic was next to the office.  They were clean and centrally located in the campground.  There were also some porta potties available near the lake.

We had a great time here. The kids all hung out together; swam, played games, kayaked, paddle boarded, watched movies, explored, climbed hills, played with their dogs, talked to each other and the teenagers were entertained by the little ones.

The adults sat around, hung out in the water, kayaked, told stories, played games, built big fires, ate and drank wine using our wine hook from  We love our camping family and the fun we have together. We cannot wait to do it all over again.


Hello world!

I love to go on vacation.  I love to go with my family.  Yes not just with my husband but with our 3 kids as well.  It’s just not the same with out them.  There is nothing more satisfying than seeing the excitement and thrills of vacation thru the eyes of your children.  Beyond that I love to have others come to; family, friends, anyone- its more fun with more people.

I also like to go as much as possible.  If I have it my way there is always a countdown to some where on my countdown app.

One of the ways we are able to make that possible is by driving.

Overwhelming for some but we embrace it.  We look at as extending the vacation by a few days.  And we are able to see the country.  The kids have been doing it since they were little, there have been rough times, but they are pretty good at it now.

We leave for Panama City Beach, Fl tomorrow.  Dance Nationals for my oldest daughter.  Unfortunately she isn’t dancing- broke her leg in March and not quite ready to compete.  But we will have a ton of fun watching out dance family and spending time with them there.

So here I will share how we do it what we do, for what is worth.  I hope you can take something – even just a laugh- from it
