Best Tourism Destinations with Campgrounds in Wisconsin

From the cold waters of Lake Michigan to the rolling currents of the Mississippi River, Wisconsin is filled with can’t-miss attractions and tourism destinations. And the best part of visiting these spots with an RV in tow is the ability to travel without ever truly leaving home! Whether you’re taking a tour of Green Bay or stopped at the state’s best theme parks, you’ll always have the quiet of your camper to come back to at the end of the day. The comforts of home on the road combined with the money-saving benefits of RV travel make it clear why so many vacationers choose to travel this way. To help you find your next Wisconsin tourist destination we’ve put together this list of attractions with nearby campgrounds in Wisconsin.

Noah’s Ark Waterpark

In the Waterpark Capital of the World, the Wisconsin Dells, Noah’s Ark Waterpark is the crown jewel. The Wisconsin Dells was named the waterpark capital because it’s home to more waterparks per capita than anywhere else in the world. And Noah’s Ark Waterpark stands out among the rest as the largest waterpark in the United States!

Campgrounds Near the Attraction

While there are plenty of hotels and campgrounds near Noah’s Ark Waterpark, two of the most popular are the Natura Treescape Resort and the Bonanza Camping Resort. The Natura Treescape Resort touts itself as home to the Wisconsin Dell’s only natural lagoon, which makes it easily one of the top campgrounds in Wisconsin. In addition to the visit to Noah’s Ark Waterpark, the Natura Treescape Resort could be its own vacation!

If you’d prefer to keep your adventures separate from the relaxed quiet of the campground, Bonanza Camping Resort might be the better option for you. It’s just down the road from Noah’s Ark Waterpark, as well as several other local waterparks.

Bay Beach Amusement Park

While there’s plenty to do on a visit to Green Bay, Wisconsin, a trip wouldn’t be complete without a stop at Bay Beach Amusement Park. The park has entertained residents and visitors of Green Bay since it opened in 1892! At Bay Beach you’ll find thrill rides, family rides, concessions, roller coasters and food. Additionally, the park hosts plenty of dances and festivals. Next to the amusement park is the Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary: a 600-acre wildlife refuge. The wildlife sanctuary is also open to guests for hiking, observation and education center tours.

Campgrounds Near the Attraction

Nearby highly rated campgrounds include the Bay Shore Campground and the Big Lake Campground. Both are located just a few miles from the attractions, which makes them perfect campgrounds in Wisconsin for amusement park guests. Bay Shore Park is a government-owned campground. It includes 110 wooded campsites to choose from, and 90 of those include water and electric. Additional camp amenities include a boat launch, hiking trails and a jump pillow – not that you’ll need much entertainment back at camp!

Big Lake Campground, on the other hand, is one of the many privately owned campgrounds in Wisconsin. This campground includes 85 sites, 41 of which are full hookup sites with additional room for slides. Big Lake Campground is a quiet, relaxing campground popular for fishing. Its serene environment makes it the perfect place to come home to after a big day at the Bay Beach Amusement Park.

Door County

Though it’s not an attraction in itself, Door County is definitely a popular Wisconsin tourism destination. This beautiful county is located on a peninsula between Green Bay and Lake Michigan. As it’s on a small peninsula, most of the county is bordered with scenic shorelines. Much of the land in Door County is preserved as state parks, which are crisscrossed with hiking trails and surrounded with small towns.

Campgrounds Near the Attraction

Our two best Door County campgrounds are both located at the tip of the peninsula. Hy-Land Court RV Park and Wagon Trail Campground are both a few miles from where the Mink River threatens to separate the top portion of the peninsula into its own island.

Hy-Land Court RV Park is a family-owned campground nestled in the woods of Door County. The surrounding woods makes privacy easy to find at this quiet campground, and the iconic fall colors of Door County easy to observe! Wagon Trail Campground is similarly located bordering the Mink River Nature Conservancy. Amenities include a camp store, fishing pole rentals and a game room. It’s within walking distance of Rowley’s Bay Resort, which includes a restaurant, pub, bakery and boat ramp.

You’ll be sure to enjoy all of Door County’s best shorelines and wooded nature preserves at these two campgrounds in Wisconsin.

While there’s plenty more to do and hundreds of campgrounds in Wisconsin to visit, we just named the three tourist attractions most worth the travel time. Some other popular places to visit in Wisconsin include the Harley-Davidson Museum, the National Railroad Museum, the Cave of the Mounds, the House on the Rock, Lambeau Field and Cheesehead Factory. And right here in Baraboo you can visit the Circus World Museum, before you head down the street to visit our local Scenic RV dealership!
