Family campground

The family campground is on the north side of the park about a half-mile from the flowage. The campground has 100 sites that are all sized for a tent, camper or RV. The east loop has 30 sites, 16 are electric and two are fully accessible for the disabled. The north loop has 30 sites, all non-electric. The south loop has 40 non-electric campsites.

There are vault toilets and water fountains throughout the campground and a centrally-located shower/flush toilet building. The sanitary dump and fill station is located on the road into the campground.

Boat-in campsites

There are three boat access campsites on the south shore of Caldron Falls Flowage. These sites are reservable and only accessed by boat (canoe or powerboat).

All sites have a canoe rack, place to tie up a boat, picnic table, fire ring, tent area, bear-proof food box, bench and outdoor toilet. These sites are open year-round for backpack camping.


Firewood is for sale at the park office.

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