Point Beach State Forest
Open: Open all year
Number of Sites: 127
Number of Sites with Electric: 70
Point Beach offers 6 miles of Lake Michigan shoreline, with dunes, a lighthouse, camping, and hiking, biking, skiing, nature, and snowmobile trails. In early morning, the sun rising over Lake Michigan can create dramatic silhouettes or cast a rosy glow over the quiet beach.
The family campground consists of 127 sites, 70 of them with electricity. All of the sites are within walking distance of Lake Michigan, where you can enjoy more than five miles of undeveloped shoreline. Because of the high sand dunes, none of the sites offer a view of the lake. All sites are wooded. A flush toilet and shower building is across from site 31.
Indoor Group Camp: The indoor group camp is near Lake Michigan about 1.7 miles south of the forest entrance station. It has two buildings, one sleeping 14 and the other 16. Groups can reserve one or both cabins, depending on the group size.
Outdoor Group Camp: Point Beach has an outdoor group camp that accommodates as many as 60 people and is designed for tents and small trailers up to 20 feet in length. Large motor homes and fifth wheel units will not fit in the group camp area and should use the family campground. Group camp accommodations include hand pump for water, pit toilets, picnic tables and a large fire ring. See the Wisconsin State Parks group camp page for details about fees and reservations.
Winter Camping: Point Beach campground is open year round. The campground entrance road is plowed to the shelter building. Sites 74 through 81 have electricity and are available first-come, first-served during the winter. Enjoy the solitude of the season. You can cross-country ski right from your campsite to the groomed trails. Water is available at the forest office or at the shop building. The shower building is shut down in mid to late October.
