Spoke with Dennis last weekend at Camp Inn, Camp Out, for those who missed it you missed a great time.
On to the business at hand. We discussed a few other good possibilities I will attempt to copy a word document here where I jotted down information I pulled up on Calumet County Park (east side of Lake Winnebago, inland about 25 miles from kohler), Columbia Park, Pipe Wi (southeast corner of Lake Winnebago), and Waupon Park, (southwest of Fond du Lac). Not sure if the campground pdfs (pics) will copy, but pretty sure the links will so you all can look at the sites and check them out. I will be trying to get more information on the lodge at Calumet county park this week and see if they are willing to open the bathouse early for us. Looking at last weekend of april or first weekend of May.

Sorry folks, the pdf of Columbia and Waupon campground did not copy through. I think all of these are excellent choices. I have camped at Calumet Co park and visited Columbia park. Columbia park has a local favorite supper club just on the side of the property right on the lake with a bar and restaurant, if this appeals to anyone.
Hope this give you all a bit more to look at. Let me know what you think. I will update more as I get the information.
