    Pt. Beach State Park would be our favorite WI State Park if it was closer to home! HUGE sites, 60-70 feet long, and very wide with lots of space between, and growth between many, but not all, of the sites. Lots of electric sites, some non-electric. OK bathroom/shower house, interspersed with pit toilets. Water here and there too. Interesting park lay out too, lots of site back further, with electricity, in area where no large trailers are allowed. Beaches, plus a dog beach! Concession, and ice at park. No internet, no T-Mobile, but 5 miles away in Two Rivers, next to Coast Guard HQ, there's a great picnic shelter with electricity and bathrooms, right across from the Marina and ACCESS, and great library in town with access too. Best ever Mexican restaurant on main drag. The nuclear plant just north of the park is now closed.

    We are going there the end of September.
    Got the last site available with electric in the park. I'm looking forward to walking the 5.5 mile beach.
