Campground Policies & Guidelines:
We camp in a different world now than when we were kids. In our campground, the actions of one person may be multiplied by 10,000 in just one season. Our actions now will determine whether this beautiful piece of nature will still be here for our children and grandchildren to enjoy in the years to come. How can you help? Please follow our rules below…they are in place for a good reason! We do our best to limit the impact we make in our natural world and we ask you to do the same. As the saying goes “Leave only footprints, and take only pictures.”
Thank you for helping to preserve this piece of nature in Door County!
Quiet Hours 10 pm – 8 am. The quality of rest and relaxation is important to our campers so please refrain from loud noises and disturbances during this period. Be aware that even normal speaking voices carry on quiet nights so it may be necessary to whisper. Radios, music, and outside TVs should be silenced from 10pm-8am, and should not be heard off of your site during the day (some campers don’t care to hear your choice of genre!) Children under 18 yrs. must be on their site and under adult supervision after 10 pm. Groups need to be splitting up and everyone heading back to their own site no later than 11 pm. Quiet hours are enforced. Your fellow campers will thank you!
Absolutely no wood gathering. There is to be no wood gathering (dead or alive), or cutting or bark peeling of trees and branches. Campers sometimes wonder why “dead and down” branches and sticks can’t be gathered from our woods to burn. If every camper, or even one fourth of our campers, went into the woods collecting items our underbrush, vegetation, and wildflowers would be trampled. Nothing may be taken from our woods! We try to keep it as natural as possible. Violators will be asked to leave immediately with no refund.
Campfires out by midnight. Never leave a fire unattended, and please make sure fires are out before retiring or leaving a campsite. Use water to douse out glowing embers completely. Fires need to be kept small and logs larger than fire pits should not be burned. Forest fires are an ever-present danger. No garbage in fire pits. Do not move fire pits. Smokey Bear thanks you for being aware of your campfire at all times.
Please help us save our woods. Limit all activities to the designated site. Do not walk, setup or store anything in the woods surrounding your site. Please stay on marked trails only. If you are camping with others , PLEASE use the road to go from site to site! This prevents the undergrowth and wildflowers in our woods (have you seen our lady slippers?) from being trampled.
Per Wisconsin DNR: Leave firewood at home! Transport of firewood from quarantined areas is a federal offense. Buy firewood within 20 miles of our campground, so somewhere up in Door County. This helps slow the spread of diseases and destructive insects. Thank-you in advance for your help. We do sell wood (wrapped, dry, and with a handle) at the camp store for your convenience. We also supply kindling at no extra charge.
Pets are welcome at Wagon Trail. We love our furry campers! Pets must not be left unattended and must be on a leash and under control at all times (even if your dog is the best dog ever!). Please pick up after your pet and dispose of waste in dumpsters or dog stations. Pets are not allowed to sleep outside the camping unit nor are they allowed in the shower houses for sanitary reasons. Barking needs to be curtailed (barking dogs can be very annoying to your neighbors). Pets must be up to date on all vaccinations. You are responsible and liable for your pets at all times.
7 mph speed limit. This is for safety reasons. It seems like a crawl and it is…please drive slowly!
No bike riding before 8 am or after dusk. When at our main building please park the bikes in the bike racks. To avoid any mishaps, please do not ride or park bikes on the walkways surrounding the buildings. Please do not ride your bike after dusk—it is dark here!
Skateboarding, inline skating or scooters are not allowed. Sorry kids, we do not have a safe area for these activities.
No Fireworks. We are in a forest and fires are an ever present danger!
Golf Carts are not allowed. Everything at Wagon Trail Campground is within walking distance.
Please turn off all outside lights whenever possible. Many of our campers enjoy the beautiful night sky! The stars are amazing on clear nights, and if you are lucky you may even get a glimpse of the Northern Lights! It also helps reduce electricity usage.
Car passes should be visibly displayed. Please display your green car pass on the rear view mirror of your vehicle. All cars must have a car pass.
Check-out time for all campers is 12 pm. Please leave your site clean for the next camper. Check-in is after 3 pm. If your site is available before 3pm early check-in is allowed. Note: We do not allow arrivals or set-ups after 10pm as that is when our quiet policy starts.
Visitors must register at office. Please obtain a vehicle permit at office. Visitors must leave by 10:00 pm. There is an extra charge if visitors stay overnight.
Grey Water should be collected and disposed of in our dump station. Drain hoses, by state law, are not allowed to drain on the ground.
Generators are not permitted.
Please inform all children of our rules. Guardians are expected to inform their children/grandchildren of the above rules and are responsible for their supervision at all times.
