All reservable family (regular) campsites and outdoor group campsites in Wisconsin state parks and forests may be reserved up to 11 months in advance or as late as two days before you arrive. Not all campsites in the system are reservable -- many properties maintain some sites as first-come, first-served for people without reservations. See web site for complete details.

Visa and MasterCard are accepted. If you don't have either, you must reserve by phone (not the Web) and ask how to pay by check or money order.

There is a nonrefundable $10 reservation fee per site per reservation and a cancellation fee of $5 per transaction. If you want extend your stay or camp at a different time, you will have to cancel the original reservation and make a new one.
