Appleton, WI Campgrounds

We are going to be visiting family on the north side of Appleton in a few weeks. Suggestions of nice campgrounds in the area that welcome pets will be appreciated.

The closest campground to North Appleton is Apple Creek Campground. It is right off the 41 highway and less than 15 minutes to Appleton. The only other campground we found was the Yogi Bear Campground in Freemont but it is about 30 miles to the west. We liked it better than Apple Creek but it is quite a bit more expensive and further from Appleton.

Most of the CGs this far North have closed for the season. Freezing weather plays havoc with water lines. You might check with Pine Grove CG west of Shawano off Hwy 29 about 6 miles. Very nice, but might be closed. Same for Tilleda Falls CG--Small, but might be able to boondock.

There is a CG on the North end of Shawano Lake (closed for the season?) either city, county or state. Another private CG just north of the Shawano Airport.

40 miles north of Shawano is the Boulder Lake National CG just off highway 55. Might be open for boondocking.

High Cliff State Park CG around the east end of Lake Winnebago is probably closed but check it anyway .

Oops, another thought-- the two casinos, one at Bowler and the other at Keshena, both have CGs where you can stay. The one at Bowler is quite nice, with pull-through sites, trees, full hookups (in-season) and transportation to the Casino. The Keshina "CG" is the South end of the parking lot. Aesthetically very unappealing.
