For a thoroughly entrenched Midwestern state, Wisconsin has never wanted for water. It’s unique moniker hails from an Ojibwe word meaning "place where waters gather”, and the state is flanked by Great lakes. But that’s only the half of it: the topography of Wisconsin, dreamily carved out some 10,000 years ago by an enormous glacier, left thousands of lakes, rivers and streams in its wake. For the waterside camping and glamping enthusiast, the sky’s the limit.
When spring hits and the weather starts to warm, outdoor adventurers can take their pick of biking, kayaking, hiking, or skiing. Come summer, quirky festivals take over the shores of Lake Michigan and Lake Superior, offering live music and unique exploration of the area’s immigrant heritage. Campers can plan their trips around these beloved festivals – or just pick a random weekend and see where the easy living leads them.
