Menominee River State Recreation Area Camping

There are multiple rustic campsites available on the property. No permits are required at this time, and all sites are first-come, first-served, so have a back-up plan in case your planned site is occupied. No potable water source is provided. Other camping opportunities also exist on the Michigan side of the river.

Don't move firewood!

Don't move firewood!Due to the potential of carrying harmful tree pests and diseases, Wisconsin has restrictions for moving firewood.


Campers at the campsites may gather wood from the forest for use in campfires as long as it is both dead and on the ground.

Canoe campsites

There are three canoe campsites available on the Wisconsin shore of the Menominee River. Signs with a canoe and tent symbol mark the campsites. These sites are for groups of six persons or less and are limited to a maximum stay of one night.

The Stoney Hill site is north (upstream) of Saler Landing, the Pemebonwon site is at the mouth of the Pemebonwon River and the Menominee River, and the Pemene Falls site is just north (upstream) of the falls. At each site there is a fire ring, a cleared spot to pitch a tent, benches and primitive latrine. No non-designated island camping is permitted on Wisconsin islands in the river.
