As I mentioned in my last couple of blogs, the weather has been amazingly warm for November, and now into December in Wisconsin.
Last month, in the middle of the month, we decided to hop in the motorhome and go for a week to a campground that we know is open until November 30th.
It's a very nice, well kept county campground in the Northeast section of Wisconsin. It's almost to the border of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. It's in Marinette County, and it's called Morgan Campground located on Timm's Lake. It's just East of Pembine Wisconsin.
Generally, in the summer months, it is pretty much booked up. You can reserve online here at their website:
The sites are spacious and set apart with a lot of trees, brush and shrubbery in between. In the newest loop, furthest to the back of the campground, the sites are all pull through. These are near the new shower building. They all have electric at the campsites, and there are water spigots through around various locations in the campground. There is also a dump station along with potable water to fill your tank once you get there.
Our favorite sites are the newest ones, numbering in the '40s, at the far back of the campground.
From their website:
Morgan Park Campground provides 45 Campsites sites on the beautiful Timms Lake in northeastern Marinette County. All the sites at Morgan Park and Campground are reservation only.

Last time I did a review of this campground, I never went inside the really new shower building to take any pictures.
This beautiful building has an atrium-like interior walkway with big sunny windows that travel around three sides of the building.
It's a great place to get out of the weather and come hide out in case of a storm if you are tent camping.
Each shower room is individually located with its own locking door.
Everything is neat and clean and well kept... AND HEATED!!! Remember, this is the middle of November and this building is still accessible with hot showers and a laundry area and flush toilets.
The main water within the campground over to the spigots and dump station had already been turned off. We were so glad to see that the water in the shower building was still available. Now we could stay longer with our limited amount of onboard water and take showers down at the building.
All in all, we recommend this very nice County campground of only 45 sites. Many of the sites are big rig friendly, and it is located in a beautiful quiet part of the Northwoods of Wisconsin.
Now that the review part is done, I will go back to our own camping for the week.
This is the first time that we are actually taking the enclosed cargo trailer for it's intended purpose, other than just our test ride. We watched it while we traveled through our backup camera while going down the road. Everything looks wonderful and it doesn't wobble or sway. It tracks very nicely behind our motorhome. Proper hitch height is important to make sure that it does not put too much weight on the tongue.
