Point Beach State Forest Camping and reservations

Point Beach State Forest offers 127 campsites, many of which offer electric and water, for a great camping experience!


Camping reservations for outdoor campsites can be made online or by calling 888-947-2757.


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.


Firewood is available in season at the forest office.

Family campground

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. Flush toilets and shower buildings are across from sites 31 and 120.

A dump station available to registered campers is across the main entrance to the campground. Garbage and recycling are near the dump station.

Indoor group camp

The indoor group camp is near Lake Michigan about 1.6 miles south of the forest entrance station. It has two cabins; the Ketchbaw, which sleeps 14 people and the Coenen, which sleeps 16 people. Groups can reserve one or both rustic cabins, depending on the group size. All reservations for these cabins are done through Reserve America, just as campsites are reserved.
