Gorgeous State Park, Great Camping

Stayed up here in April with a few friends. Went mainly for photography and exploration and was not the least bit disappointed. Big Bay State Park made for an amazing camping trip.

Outdoor enthusiast and photographer from Milwaukee, WI. Camping, hiking, exploring, biking and more. I love it all and I try to capture as much of it as possible. Exploring my home state and exhausting all there is to see, which might take me my whole life. Worth it!
