Rice Lake Wi area camping??

We are planning a September trip to WI and need a recommendation for camping off HWY 53 near Rice Lake. We will be on our way up to Bayfield and this would put us at a good point for a stop. We don't want to get too far from the road, but hope for a quiet, clean place. Any ideas?

We researched this area for our first trip of the season. Rice Lake proper didn't have much but there is a large KOA in Bloomer which is between Chippewa Falls and Rice Lake. They weren't quite open in mid-April. We ended up at ONeil Campground in Chippewa Falls but were not terribly impressed, they definitely cater to their seasonals - the craziest phenomenon we experienced there was that ALL THE SEASONALS drive golf carts round and round and round the park.

Susie is from the Taylors Falls, MN and St. Croix Falls, WI area. Last weekend we camped and celebrated our 34th anniversary where we honeymooned in the Wisconsin side Interstate State Park at St. Croix Falls. This is an amazing area with beautiful and dramatic walks to the bluffs overlooking the St. Croix River. It's not far from Rice Lake in terms of a travel objective for the day. I'd avoid St. Paul's rush hour and could help you with route info, poison ivy spottings (dogs y'know...), and the trail to the bluff -- safe, good guard rails, etc. They have showers and a limited number of electric hookups in the north loop and you'd generally find those available weekdays only this time of year. They have a website - WDNR - Find a State Park or Forest.

The Minnesota side Interstate park is a distant second IMO -- too cramped. Chequamegon Nat'l Forest has some nice areas but is all boondocking of course.
