Wisconsin’s Top 10 Campgrounds. # 10

Not so long ago I posted a Top 10 Wisconsin Campgrounds on our IG. IG is a great way to get a quick snapshot of your thoughts. But it isn’t always enough to do it complete justice. So here is my attempt at a better description of my current favorite campgrounds as I posted on IG. This Top 10 is not perfect and it is not set in stone. They even each may have something I don’t love about them.

Everyone will not agree with my choices and that is OK. I know that we have so many wonderful campgrounds and RV parks in Wisconsin.  The variety of campgrounds and RV parks we have here is amazing especially because we don’t all look for or like the same things. Some things bother some of us more than others. We all have different wants and needs, likes and dislikes. That is great. Even better when it gets us to try new things, go new places and make new discoveries that we wouldn’t have done without openly listening to the opinions of friends, family and strangers. 

And yes my top 10 can change at anytime- honestly had I waited a month it would have been different  But we’ll get to that

(I will make this post a series giving each campground it’s own glory)

Number 10 Lake Dubay Shores Mosinee, WI

The best part about Lake Dubay Shores Campground is the location. It is located directly on Lake Dubay in Mosinee, WI. Lake Dubay is a full wake lake and the campground has its own boat landing for campers to use. 

The campground rents fishing boats, pontoons, canoes, and peddle boats. They also have slips you can rent if you bring your own. There is a swimming area and dog beach. The swimming area starts shallow if you have little kids and then gets deeper for the more adventurous ones. There is also a large park like area to enjoy near the swimming beach. This area has picnic tables and large swings if you prefer to watch while others swim.

The lake sites are my favorite(but there are not many that are rented over night.) They are located on a ledge overlooking the water and are a decent size. They are partially shaded but open for easy parking. There is stair access to the dock and they provide great morning and sunset views. It is an absolutely beautiful view to wake up to and enjoy morning coffee to.

Most sites have water and electric hook ups (20 and 30 amp.) There are also some full hook up sites closer to the office.

The campground has a playground, basketball court, horseshoe pits and game room. There is also a small store located at the office.

If you don’t have an RV and aren’t a tenter they do also have a couple rental units available

They do charge for visitors ($5 per person) and watch for parking passes in all the vehicles that drive through. If your pass is not showing they will stop you to make sure you are registered. They deliver wood if you buy it from the store and have basic groceries, beer, RV supplies and bait.

I have not used the bathroom and shower facilities but it has been a couple years since we have been here. Back then the kids considered themselves campground bathroom/ shower experts. This wasn’t the best one in their opinion. But it wasn’t the worst either.

Like I said we haven’t been here in a few years. Actually we haven’ t been here since the last time I posted about it. But it still ranks up there for me and I do look forward to going back one day- after we check out more of what Wisconsin has to offer.

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
