A rugged glacial landscape beckons adventurers in the Kettle Moraine State Forest – it’s a place filled with biking and hiking trails and incredible forest vistas. While the forest is a popular day trip destination, it’s possible to extend your adventure with a stay at special lakeside campground within this Wisconsin park that’s open year-round. Here’s why you should make plans to camp at Mauthe Lake.
Campers call this little campground a hidden gem, and when you stay overnight, you’ll likely agree. Be sure to make it to the waterfront in the evening – the sunsets over Mauthe Lake are amazing! Learn more about the campground on the state DNR website. If you enjoy camping lakeside, here are some spectacular campgrounds that are right on the beach.
