Tent Camping Next to Our Beach.
Dine on fresh smoked lake trout around your campfire as you watch breathtaking sunsets just feet away from the largest fresh water lake in the world.
Tent Trailers and Motorhomes Welcome
Right across from our lakeshore campsites are plenty of travel trailer, tent trailer and motorhome sites with water and electricity. Dump station close by.
Free WIFI Onsite
Check emails and Facebook from the comfort of your tent! Roughing it on the South Shore doesn't mean you need to disappear completely.
Eat Out or Dine In
Sure you can cook your fresh-caught Salmon and cook it over an open flame, or... eat out at our two restaurants just a block away.
Want to get away from the activity and get some seclusion? Our wooded campsites are tucked away, but not too far away. A quick two minute walk to the beach.
Pavillion and Playground
Herbster has a delightful playground and pavillion at the beach. Come for a picnic or a group event. We have plenty of space.
Have a boat you would like to take on a cruise around Bark Bay or beyond? Our first class boat launch is only 3 1/2 miles from the campground.
Trails, Trails, Trails...
Bayfield County ATV and Snowmobile trails run right through Herbster. Bring your machine along for the ride. Hundreds of miles of trails right from your campsite.
