We very much liked this campground. Having a 5th wheel, we’ve found that the options for being in a heavily wooded, state campground setting are far and few between. For us, this was a treat.
Our site was rather private and as you can see from the photos, there’s a retaining wall which created an additional level of privacy. The site wasn’t level, but it didn’t take that much for us to get the camper to where it needed to be. There’s water and electricity, but no sites offer full-hookup. The level of quite throughout the campground was amazing. We stayed here on a Friday to Monday and not one evening was even remotely loud.
Overall, a great campground that’s nicely maintained. It’s our understating that the owners took over approximately a year ago, and from our experience are trying to do things right. We didn’t use any of the amenities but there’s a swimming pool, a rec room and various other activities for the family. Be prepared as you won’t easily find TV reception or a good (if any) cell signal (we have Verizon and Cellcom). - CSRVLIFE

Heaven's Up North Family Campground is a great little campground. It's been open since 1995 and it is a typical up-north Wisconsin campground. It's located around many great fishing lakes and is in the heart of the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest. The Wolf & Pestiago Rivers are close by which offers the opportunity for some great white water rafting and rubber inner-tube rafting. The campground itself is heavily wooded with rolling hills throughout. In my opinion big rigs, units over 32 feet long, would have trouble moving around this campground. The roads are that tight. The sites themselves are large enough for comfort and they all have fire rings and picnic tables at every site. Unfortunately the weekend we were there it rained buckets the whole time so we didn't get much opportunity to explore the campground. We did stop into the main lodge and met the campground hosts who were very friendly. Inside the lodge they have a few video type games for the kids but not much in reference to camping supplies. Their web page is unique as you can actually see the site you might want to reserve. This is a great feature in my opinion...My wife and I normally don't go back to the same campground twice because there are so many different ones to pick from but we already agreed to visit Heaven's Up North Campground again. It one of the most beautiful campground we've seen in some time. Once you get settled in and you're looking for a great place to eat jump on Hwy. 34 and head about five miles north of Lakewood to a wide spot in the road called Townsend. Upon your arrival look for a restaurant on your left called M.J. Beans Casual Dining. We went there and were blown away by the great food and service. For a casual dining place they really got their act together. I had a huge Rib Eye steak that was done to perfection. I ordered it with sauteed mushrooms and it came with a large bowl of delicious, prepared to perfection ones. The wife had a shrimp stir fry what was also done to perfection. They also offer a great salad bar and was full of very fresh greenery and homemade dishes. Anyway back to the campground. We highly recommend this campground but only if you have a unit under 32 feet or so. Happy camping. - jackmroz

This is a small Casino Campground. Free for three nights. Sites are large and level side to side with a slight pitch front to back. Casino does have a dump station. First come first served - no reservations. Narrow grassy area on side of parking spots. All paved roads. I would camp here again. - corky506

There are a few sites close to the water in this park that are snapped up immediately. It's a national forest campground, so that means no amenities or hookups, other than pit toilets, fire rings and picnic tables. There is a water spigot at entry to fill your tanks. Very quiet lake and good fishing. Boat landing is next to the campgrounds for easy access. Very clean and well kept, with rangers driving through a few times on the weekend to keep an eye on things. No showers. - kareninthewoods

Stayed in site 82 Memorial Weekend 2019. This is a party persons campground, quiet time is supposed to start at 10:00, it doesn't! Noisey punks partying until 2:30 a.m. no respect for others, no hot water in the dirty showers, Staff didn't seem to care. Staff said it takes 1/2 hour for water to warm. Chain saws run all day long, no one cares. Generators run all night long. No cell reception to call police about drunk thugs. This place has the makings of an exceptional park but the camping clientele are wrecking it! For me, I'll stick to Wis. state DNR parks. They're cleaner, safer, quieter and rules are enforced by staff who treat stayers as guests. We ended up leaving a day early to get some sleep and will never stay there again. Not impressed and see it as a wasted holiday weekend! There was no camp host and no staff available evenings or nights, we tried to find someone to complain to but no one was around. Very disappointed, really want my $62 back and to know that others were banned from park. - BAhrt

My wife and I stayed at this campgrounds for quite a few years. Its very clean and the showers are very clean. The camp hosts are very friendly and helpful.. All the RV pads are paved and levelish. We stay there every year for about a week. The Rangers are very friendly, nice people to know.. - loneman44

We love this park and have camped here several times. The sites are large and well separated and the park is very well maintained. There's a very nice sandy beach for families with young children. Sometimes we get TV reception with our RV antenna, sometimes we don't! All of the sites have a paved driveway and most are quite level. - PaulHart

As the previous reviewer stated this is a rustic campground with no showers and vault toilets. The sites do not have electricity. It was nice to only go a few steps away from the site and be on the shores of the lake. The swimming area was not great and even being in the water did not stop the constant attack from the horse flies. The is also another lake that is within walking distance that we went and checked out and tried to fish with no luck. We had limited luck fishing in Bear Lake. No dump station at the campground. Overall this is a decent place to go if you want some quiet without electronics. Be ready for the aggressive flies. - haplo777

I want to be up front this is a rustic campground. It is in the national forest and the lake is within view of almost every site.
Some of what the park offers. Over half of the sites you can reserve have direct water access. Our site had about 10 steps to get to the water. At this point you can just enjoy the view or fish from the spot. The campground also has a beach area to swim in and a sandy area to play in. This is a lake and the water is a little murky. Lilly pads exist on both sides of the swimming area and we could see thousands of tadpoles along the edge of swimming area. The park does not have showers, only has vault toilets, and the water is from hand pumps. The vault toilets were decent and about as clean as a vault toilet can be. It does not have a dump station but there is a nearby campground that lets you use there dump station for $10.
The site we had, #17, was flat and had plenty of room. We had a gravel pad, a picnic table and a large fire pit.
Overall we went here from some quiet and to get away from electronics. The only thing that interrupted our quiet time was the constant attack by large horse fly's. Though you would have to expect that considering the park is located in the middle of a National Forest. In the end we got what we wanted and spent some quality time enjoying nature, fishing, and got to leave the electronics at home. - Schultefam
