Wisconsin has plenty of well-known state parks, but for a real savage adventure, head to a Wisconsin state forest. The state manages nearly half a million acres of forest land – it’s open to the public and the forests are similar to state parks, but in some areas they have fewer amenities. If you are looking to get away from the crowds and connect with nature, these forests are for you. Here’s a Wisconsin road trip that takes you to three of the state’s most beautiful forests.
If you’re a camper, you’ll find plenty of campsites available in these state forests – plan early for busy weekends. Learn more about these forests and other states on the Wisconsin DNR website.
