Discover Peshtigo River State Forest, WI


With more than 12,000 acres of pristine forest and beautiful waterway to explore, Peshtigo River State Forest offers a quintessential Wisconsin camping experience. Located northwest of Marinette in the state's northeast, this park boasts a 25-mile stretch of river all its own.

As a result, fishing, boating, canoeing, and kayaking are all hugely popular activities in the forest. But with great hiking, mountain biking, and winter sports activities all on offer too, not to mention a rustic family campground, Peshtigo River State Forest has a lot to offer to campers of all ages. Keep reading to find out how you can plan your perfect RV camping vacation in this spectacular state forest.

Getting Outdoors

Encompassing 25 miles of Peshtigo River, the forest has around 3,200 acres of water for campers to enjoy. For many visitors, that means packing a fishing rod or two and trying to catch a big one.

There are several popular fishing areas to explore in the forest, as well as a number of unnamed lakes and streams that can often serve up a surprise or two. If you want to target muskie, Caldron Falls Flowage is your best bet. If you're after variety, you'll find muskie, trout, walleye, bass, and more at Johnson Falls Flowage. Just make sure you have a current fishing license before wetting a line.

As you'd expect, Peshtigo River State Forest is also a very popular destination among boating enthusiasts. From the peaceful backwaters to several dams along the river, there's plenty to explore — and 16 boat landing areas to help you access the best of it.

If you want to go water skiing or just cruise around on a jet ski, Caldron Falls Flowage and High Falls Reservoir are perfect. However, low speeds are recommended due to the risks posed by submerged obstacles.

If you'd rather get around under your own steam, canoeing and kayaking are also favorite activities here. Rentals are available from several local businesses, with the upper Peshtigo well-known for its whitewater rapids. The Roaring Rapid section well and truly lives up to its name, but it's for skilled paddlers only.

But you'll find plenty more to do in Peshtigo River State Forest away from the water as well. Several trails are open to hikers and skiers — the three-mile Seymour Rapids Trail offers some spectacular scenery — with horseback riding also available. And with more than 35 miles of trails open to mountain biking, it's well worth bringing your bike along for your Peshtigo River State Forest camping trip.

Camping at Peshtigo River State Forest

For the ultimate escape, camp in an RV at Peshtigo River State Forest. There's a peaceful family campground with all the essential amenities. Don't have your own rig? Search for a rental RV in Marinette County before reserving your site.

Open from late April until the end of November, the Old Veteran's Lake Family Campground features 16 campsites. It's a primitive camping area, which means there are no hookups, no flush toilets, and no hot showers to enjoy. However, pit toilets are provided in addition to drinking water. Each site features its own fire ring and picnic table. The sites are just a short walk away from a pretty lake complete with a beach area where you can cool off in the summer months. Canoeing and kayaking are also permitted on Old Veteran's Lake.

If you want to visit Peshtigo River State Forest with your pet, you'll be happy to learn that leashed pets are welcome in the campground. However, you're responsible for cleaning up after your dog and must make sure they're attended at all times.

Finally, if you really want to rough it for a little while, Peshtigo River State Forest also features ten remote campsites and seven boat-in campsites.

Exploring the Area

When your Peshtigo River State Forest RV camping adventure comes to an end, there's no need to despair. With lots of other great attractions and activities to enjoy nearby, you can always extend your vacation a little longer.

For example, if you want to spend more time enjoying the Wisconsin state park system, Governor Thompson State Park is practically right next door and is popular with anglers.

If you're looking for a way to treat yourself, you might prefer to head for Marinette and sample a few drops at the local winery, or let the kids burn some energy in the quaint city parks.

And if you'd rather head for a major center, Green Bay is one hour and 15 minutes away to the south. When you get there, spoil your inner history buff with a tour of the National Railroad Museum, home to the world's largest steam-powered train.

Peshtigo River State Forest offers an abundance of opportunities for adventure and exploration, both in the park itself and in the surrounding area. So why not rent a camper near Peshtigo River State Forest and start enjoying everything the area has to offer?
