The Family Camping Guide is the first comprehensive guide to public campgrounds in Wisconsin, Michigan, Indiana, and Illinois, presenting tent camping as an economical, safe, and comfortable means of vacationing in these states. Included are all the developed public (state, federal, county, and municipal) campgrounds in the four states for families who want to travel anywhere in the area regardless of the particular type of campground they prefer. Also included are procedures for planning tent camping vacation trips because they have changed radically in the past ten years. This guidebook stands apart from other Midwestern guidebooks in these eight respects: • Written for family (or tent) campers who typically prefer public campgrounds with large, level, grassy and shady campsites, rather than for RVers who prefer private campgrounds with 30- or 50-amp electrical service, wide roads, few trees, paved parking pads, and dump stations.• Provides critical information for all 721 state, federal, county, and municipal camping destinations in the four Lake Michigan states, rather than a few arbitrarily selected “favorite” campgrounds. Details needed to evaluate each property as a possible destination, make reservations, and navigate to it are presented in the campground listings at the end of each chapter. • Public campgrounds are organized by geographic location, management authority, and number of campsites rather than by alphabetical (or random) order. It names campgrounds that have been cited by other authorities as good camping destinations in addition to the campgrounds that the author prefers.• Uses a unique system of reference towns, highways, and landmarks to locate campgrounds on a highway map, rather than an alphabetical and numerical grid system.Regardless of your past camping experience, this guide to family camping vacations will help you plan more enjoyable camping trips to the Lake Michigan states.
