Campsites are a bit close and there are no water hookups. However, canoeing and fishing right from your campsite. Beautiful area, but not much commerce nearby.

We don't live in Wisconsin, and for a tent campsite we had to pay extra for out-of-state, an $11 fee to use WI parks (it was $38 for an annual pass), and $10 for electricity. We ended up paying $44 for one night of camping....More

This is a beautiful park! Most of the sites have water access, trees for cover and a great view. The trails were stunning and well maintained. The beach and sand volleyball are both convenient. All in all, a great park- only bummer was 9-1030am shower...More

Beautiful state campground. We stayed in the south campground which has electricity but no water at sites. Very quiet. Shower facility is clean. 2nd visit. Will return and try the tent sites.

Wisconsin's State Park system is second to none. No matter what kind of outdoor interests you have, you can find one (or several) that cater to it. At Brunet Island State Park, it's all about the Cornell Flowage where the Chippewa and Fisher rivers converge....More

This park is one of our favorites and has several non-reservable sites so you have a chance in the summer months to stay for a week. Kayaking and nature walks are beautiful. Its not uncommon to see deer and geese. The owls sound awesome at...More
