Getting your family off the couch and outdoors can sometimes seem like a daunting task, but thanks to the plethora of natural attractions in the state of Wisconsin, your family will be eager to put down the remote control and pick up the nature guide.
The Great Wisconsin Nature & Birding Trail
This is one Wisconsin attraction that isn’t confined to a specific region or city. The Wisconsin Bird Conservation Initiative has put together preserves along hiking trails all across the state. No matter which of our Wisconsin campgrounds you choose to bring your family to, you will be just a short jog from a hiking trail where you can see dozens, even hundreds of different bird species.
Big Foot Beach State Park
Located conveniently close to our campgrounds in Fort Atkinson and Caledonia is what has often been called the best swimming location in Wisconsin. Big Foot Beach State Park is a 272 acre state park on the shores of Lake Geneva in southeast Wisconsin. Separate from the designated swimming area is a fishing area where young and old alike will be able to reel in local fish from the lake like Smallmouth, Walleye, Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass, Lake Trout, Northern Pike, Rainbow and Brown Trout, Perch, White Bass, Bluegill, Crappie and Cisco. Bring your fishing poles along with your swim suits!
Wildlife in Green Bay Wisconsin
Green Bay is home to one of the state’s largest wildlife preserves and your family is invited to experience the fun! Just miles away from our campground in Sturgeon Bay is the urban preserve, a downtown wildlife refuge where individuals can interact with and learn about the plants and animals of the region.
Experience the Night Time Sky
Just up the road from our Warrens Jellystone Park is the Planetarium at the University of Wisconsin Eau Claire. This inexpensive family vacation will allow your family to experience the night time sky without interference from big city lights. If your family has never been to a planetarium, plan to visit the University of Wisconsin Eau Claire and experience the stars and planets in all of their glory.
