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 5 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.  

Outdoor group camp

Point Beach has an outdoor group camp that accommodates as many as 60 people and is designed for tents and small trailers up to 20 feet in length. Large motor homes and fifth-wheel units will not fit in the group camp area and should use the family campground. Group camp accommodations include a hand pump for water, vault toilets, picnic tables and a large fire ring.

Ice Age Trail and Kayak campsites

These two rustic sites are outside the family campground. The Ice Age Trail site is popular for backpack campers hiking the Ice Age Trail and the kayak campsite is only accessible from Lake Michigan. Both sites are about 0.5 miles south of the forest office. 

Firewood

Firewood is available in season at the forest office.

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