Wisconsin is a beautiful state in the heart of the Midwest U.S. that is full of amazing camping, hiking, sightseeing, and even better people. It has Lake Superior to the north and Lake Michigan to the east, both of which are awesome during the warmer months of the year. The Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest is one of my favorite spots too! If you're planning a trip in your RV or van through Wisconsin, make sure to plan out the campsites you want to stay at ahead of time!
