Camp Wisconsin: Spearhead Point Campground

DSCN3365

When I think family camping trip this is one of the top places that come to mind. It is so gorgeous here from the green tunnel drive in to the campsites themselves. We spent a week here at the end of May last year and fell in love with it instantly.

The green tunnel comes from being located within the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest in northern Wisconsin, anywhere in this forest is just gorgeous. To top it off even more the campground is nestled along the Mondeaux Flowage, 411 acres of some great fishing.

Best thing other than the beauty of being nestled along the Mondeaux Flowage is several of the campsites here have their own docks to park your boat or fish off. Boat landing available within campground.

Spearhead Point Campground has 15 campsites total and all are nonelectric. All also have a picnic table and fire ring. Affordability gets 5 stars here non dock sites run only $12 per night and dock sites $14 per night. You can’t beat this if you don’t mind that there are no showers/flush toilets on the grounds but there are some little over a mile away that are coin operated. All toilets on the grounds are pit style and water is hand pumped.

Campsites are all very spacious with room for tents up to RV’s.

Love how spacious this site is!

 

Recreation wise this place has it all or is just a hike away. On the ground themselves there is of course fishing for all sort of species from Northern Pike to Bluegill, hiking and a picnic area.

The Ice Age Trail is also accessible from campground and is a must to hike. Short hike will bring you to a park with playground equipment, swimming area and more hiking!! There is also a concessions stand during season.

Ice Age Trail may be a bit of surprise to some because the trail narrows to what seems a game trail but it indeed is still an actually hiking trail. The trail to park is uphill and can see the lake almost all the way. Once you get to the park and if you chose to continue you will pass across a dam, parking lot and a couple roads. I highly recommend hiking shoes and be prepared for wetness depending on recent rainfall. We come back pretty muddy.  We almost stepped on a snake also so watch out for those little critters. Other than that I loved hiking half way around the lake and one day hope to do the entire Ice Age Trail.

Watch video for footage of Ice Age Trail to get a better idea. We went at the perfect time of year and bugs were not bad at all.

Our lil man loves camping and getting dirty!

BONUS: So we missed our turn on the way back from town and ended up seeing this quite amazing sight. It was a must to pull over and take pictures, I mean who does this. Whoever it was I thank them because this was just awesome to see. Imagine the time put into that.

Thanks for reading and your interest. I highly recommend this place. When we went at the end of May last year there were about 4-5 other families camping.

      We were awestruck when we happened upon it and super glad we missed our turn then. Really wish we could have found out the person behind it. Thank you for all your positivity and you have a wonderful weekend as well. Weather here has not been in our favor going on third round of ice storm tonight.
