Should you be traveling near the tip of the Wisconsin peninsula, book an RV in Potawatomi State Park, if you are keen to see the lesser-visited side of The Badger State. Conveniently located with great accessibility to Route 42 and Route 57, Potawatomi State Park is easily reachable when you rent an RV in Wisconsin. Less than an hours drive away from Green Bay on the west coast, and no more than a 90-minute drive from Manitowoc on the east coast, this park has the perfect balance of city convenience and natural beauty.

Established in 1928, the park itself was named in honor of the tribe that first inhabited the peninsula. Originally known at the Bo-De-Wad-Me Tribe, loosely translating to "keeper of the fire," the name was eventually simplified to Potawatomi State Park. Stretching across 1,225 acres of undulating green hills, immense limestone cliffs, and beautiful bay coastline, visitors choose to rent a camper near Potawatomi State Park not only to experience the rich heritage but also to explore the great outdoors here.

Getting Outdoors

Exploring the park on foot is by far the most popular way hikers, and vacationers spend their time here. With over eleven miles of hiking trails that wind through the park, all of varying difficulty, it is no surprise why.

This almost four-mile-long trail passes several viewpoints, including the 75-foot observation tower that offers beautiful views over the rolling hills and craggy limestone ridges.

Alternatively, consider completing part of the infamous Ice Age National Scenic Trail. Although this part of the trail is only three miles long and follows the edge of the last continental glacier in Wisconsin, the trail itself continues on for thousands of miles. Why not choose an RV rental here during the winter months, when you will see nine miles of these walking trail transformed into cross-country skiing and snowmobiling paths.

Bordering the coastline of Sturgeon Bay, there are a great variety of water activities to take advantage of here. For those with their own vessel, this is the perfect place to launch your boat to indulge in a spot of fishing for the day. Even for those that don’t have their own boat, it is easy enough to rent a canoe, kayak or paddleboat from one of the touts on the beach. This naturally protected bay offers some of the best bass fishing in the world as well as the opportunity to catch rainbow trout, whitefish, and northern pike. Either bring your own rod or rent some fishing equipment from the park, for free!
