More Information


Potawatomi State Park has family and group campsites and an accessible cabin for people with disabilities.

Two loops of the Daisy Field campground offer a total of 123 campsites, 40 with electricity. Four group sites can each accommodate 30 people. Two of the group sites can accommodate trailers and motor homes and the other two sites are available for tent campers. Showers and a sanitary dump station are open in season. There are two paved, accessible campsites in the south loop of the campground in addition to the accessible cabin. These sites have paved pathways leading to the toilet/shower building and are equipped with pedestals for electric hookups.

The Cabin by the Bay in the south campground provides fully accessible indoor camping for persons with disabilities. The cabin is equipped with a low counter, stove, microwave and refrigerator. Two hospital beds, a full-sized sofa sleeper and two cots accommodate up to six people. Amenities include a bathroom with a wheel-in shower, heating, air conditioning and a screened porch.

A committee of people with disabilities helped design the cabin to make it highly useable by a variety of people.

Firewood can be purchased at the Potawatomi Park Store in the campground.

Don't move firewood! Due to the potential of carrying harmful tree pests and diseases, Wisconsin has restrictions for moving firewood.

A vehicle admission sticker is required for any motor vehicles brought into the property. A camper without an annual sticker will need to buy one daily sticker for each night of camping. Free daily stickers are available for vehicles towed or carried into the property by a vehicle with a purchased sticker. Ask at the entrance station when you arrive.
