Point Beach is one of our favorite State Parks. Love the dog beach. There used to be a guy with a sawmill on the left side of road leading to the enterence. We would always stop there and buy firewood, great count for the price.

We're also getting ready to move onto our first seasonal site near Shiocton, WI. I'll miss weekends at Point Beach, Harrington Beach and Kohler Andrae but pulling up to an already set-up camper will be nice.

Where are people getting the 300 gallon waste tanks from?

Welcome Jason! I bought our 300 gallon tank from the campground we are staying at.

Lots of people stay at Point Beach. It is a very popular campground and hard to get into in the summer!

Jason. We too are buying them from the campground. It is much cheaper. You can get them online but they are $500 plus over $100 shipping. They buy them bulk as a campground so they get them cheaper shipped. I would ask your owners. I could put you down for another one but then you would have to drive up to Lakewood to get it

Cool, I'll definitely be asking our campground owner. We planning to take the camper up in two weeks.

I was pricing 42 gallon totes at nearly $300 with shipping. The 300 gallon tank seems to make more sense.

Funny I was thinking about taking a ride up too. Just to check it out because we have not been giving the green light to take our camper in yet. Maybe I'll save the gas and just wait for a report on snow from you

We used to live in Sandusky, Ohio. We are now living near Grand Rapids, Mi. Our house is actually in Ottawa County, Michigan where I worked as a Ottawa County Sheriffs Dept. as a Marine Patrol Deputy.

We camped a few times at a campground on the Mohican River. I can't remember the name of the campground but it had a bar/carryout and was right on the river. Also had canoes and would take you upstream then you could canoe back to the campground. We were tent campers at the time. It was good times back then. In recent years when we would go back to Ohio for a visit we would stay at Cedar Lane Campground near you. Great campground, love the pools and close to the ferry to Put In Bay.

But getting back to the original post, we too are first time seasonal campers. We did keep a boat at a Marina in Ohio that we would spend weekends and short vacations on so I am somewhat familiar with the concept.

Tomorrow we will be spending our first night at our new second home. Can't wait the weather tomorrow is going to be great.

Well.....our campground posted pics again....still plenty of snow but it is melting! We may still go up. We have to walk in cuz the campground roads are too mucky but we can still bring some stuff up.

Welcome to all the first time seasonal campers. We are just entering year 2. On Tuesday, April 15, campground opens for us and our new Rockwood Signature 8329SS is to be hooked up. I will pack up our current camper and then wait till the new one is set up . . . then unpack that day. First camping trip is April 25-27 -- rain or snow -- we will be there. We hope to have running water by then and pray that we don't get freezing temps at night. In Wisconsin you never know what you'll get.

Enjoy the camping season. Ours in the Plainfield, WI, area is April 15 through October 15.
