    WI > Potential hang at a state park in the North/West region of WI

    I have a number of state parks to cross of my list. I was curious if anyone else had any interest in camping at any of these parks too. If so, then I could look into best options. I'm in need of a November location to hang so that might be when I'm looking to book, but also might want to squeeze something in during August or September. I haven't looked into if any of these parks have group sites. We might be talking about just an individual site or two (depending on numbers).

    - Amicon Falls
    - Pattison
    - Copper Falls
    - Straight Lake
    - Interstate

    Copper falls does have a group site. And several very nice walk in sites that are grouped together. It is fairly hammock friendly. Amicon does not have a group site and only two walk in sites. The sites are also hit or miss for being hammock friendly. Pattison does not have a group camp, they do have a backpack camp "area" but it is a couple mile hike in. Pattison also has a couple of the nicer trails out and off limits due to the last flood. I will say all three have amazing waterfalls and fun trails with Copper Falls topping list. Pattison would be a close second if it wasn't for trail closures. Straight and Interstate I can't really speak about, I never get that far south ;P

    Might you get that far south for a hang?

    Possibly, I do most of my major backpacking Sept/Oct so would just depend on the timing

    Subscribed - Copper Falls in Sept sounds like it could work.
