You Asked.  We Answered.



Do you have showers?

 Our most frequently asked question! We do not have showers at this time. We would love to one day be able to put in a facility but that's a long way down the road.

Showers are available for purchase at the Bayfield Recreation Center.  They are $4 a shower.  The address for the Rec Center is 140 S. Broad St. in Bayfield.  More information is available on their web site;

Do you allow Pets?

We love pets at the South Shore Campground. If you've stayed with us before you've probably had the opportunity to meet Lesh, our 3-legged camp greeter.

We do however ask that they are kept under your control at all times and never left unattended.  Also, please do you part to keep the campground nice for everyone and clean-up after them.

How far are you from Lake Superior?

While we do not have any lake access at the campground, we are conveniently located 1.2 miles from beautiful Corny Beach and 2.5 miles from Meyers Beach; a part of the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore and home to the mainland sea caves.

Do you take reservations?

We take and encourage reservations.  We are a small campground so it is hard to guarantee that we will have space available.  We do require payment in full to reserve sites.  

What is your CANCELLATION policy?

Cancellations will receive a partial refund if made more than two weeks from the starting date of your reservation.  A $15 fee will be kept as a non-refundable deposit, anything exceeding that may be refunded.  Cancellations made within two weeks will receive no refund.  

Do you take credit cards?

We accept all major credit cards for payment.  When accepting credit cards we charge a small processing fee.

Do you Have Bathrooms?

We have pit toilet facilities.  They do not have running water or flush toilets.  They do however have lights, hand sanitizer and are well stocked in toilet paper. There is a water spigot near the toilets.


The South Shore Campground is located 18 miles from Bayfield, WI; home of the Apple Fest and Madeline Island Ferry Line.  It is a very nice 20 minute drive.

Can we Book Multiple sites?

Unfortunately we have had issues in the past with large groups. Because of this we have a policy of only renting out 2 sites to a single group.
