                 naturalcampingislands@gmail.com  Sunday after five PM is now $20 per camper for the labor day weekend, and three day minimum remains for any earlier check in on labor day weekend.  All islands are open and fishing has been great.  $45 per person three day minimum.

 Our new check in procedure is one vehicle will be logged and all passengers names entered in the vehicle log.  Please do not be impatient and wait your turn as one vehicle and their passengers are processed.                            Please do not call the office on your way out to the campground asking for address.....gps will get you lost.  You should cut and paste the address below and print a map....otherwise you will get lost with GPS, and having 5 people calling for directions while checking in people does not work, and we must hang up and take care of the campers who got their directions before leaving.

14lb walleye camping season opening weekend

Campers were getting walleye off the south causeway as another great fishing season commences

Wildlife paradise

Herons, Hawks, Turkey Vultures, and Eagles will make your boating trip a venture into one of the Midwests finest wildlife habitats.

Holidays are now three day minimum- memorial day, 4th July, and Labor Day will require three day fee of $45 minimum per person.

We are unable to chase people down who have not paid. On Labor day weekend if you come Friday, Saturday, or Sunday you will pay $45 per person even if you only spend Sunday night here. There will be no early check in fee with a holiday weekend and the gates remain open 7am until 11pm.

June, July, August, and September are now two day minimum regardless what day you come on a weekend.

People have continued to abuse our old policy, and single day camping will only happen in March, April, May, October and November. There will be early check in fees in those months without the two day minimum, but with the two day minimum months you will pay a flat two day camping fee regardless of what time you arrive
