Located in Wilson Township just south of Sheboygan, the small community of Black River is set in the woods a short walk from Lake Michigan. It is usually noticeably cooler here due to the shade and breezes off the lake. Our family has had this property for 90 years and 4 generations so it is quite special for us. There is a U-shaped loop connecting the two driveways. Due to high water and beach erosion, access to Lake Michigan is not always possible. Kohler Andre State Park with fabulous trails is nearby. The James Tellen Woodland Sculpture Garden is a short walk with nice paths through the woods. There is a local tavern with food as well. A large public off-leash dog park is 2.5 miles away. Suggested Local Attractions:Downtown Sheboygan with its lovely harbor, shops, and restaurants is about 10 minutes north. The small towns of Kohler, Plymouth, Keil, Sheboygan Falls, etc. are an easy drive. Kunes RV Center has good supplies and a service facility. Many big box stores are located off I-43 in Sheboygan with Camping World and Costco 30 minutes south towards Port Washington.

No smoking is allowed, no music or loud equipment without permission. Generators, if absolutely necessary, can be run for short periods with prior approval.

A 30 amp dogbone is available. Depending on where you park, an extension cord may be necessary. Water is available except in the winter - a long fill hose is provided. Kohler-Andrea State Park has a nicely remodeled dump station (a state park pass is required plus $10) as does Love's Travel Center just off I-43 also for $10.
Access Road Conditions: We are a short distance off a main 2-lane residential road on a paved side street. The driveway is a pull-through C shape, dirt & gravel, and is wide with good overhead clearance. Pull-through parking should work fine. The parking area is under tall pines and trees so lots of debris is usual, particularly if it rains. We have trimmed back all the large branches so there is a good amount of filtered light. Tow Vehicle Parking Details: Tow vehicles can easily park in the driveway along with your camper or motorhome.

This easy access, level, wooded site made for a great one-night stopover. White tailed deer roamed the yard and surrounding area as we pulled in and wandered about while we enjoyed our dinner at the provided picnic table. Our host was out of town but provided all we needed with prompt communication via the HH app. He also gave great recommendations for local food options. We enjoyed a peaceful evening and would definitely recommend this host!

Black River Host was gone, but graciously communicated and gave perfect directions to a level spot under the trees. Saw a deer grazing as I pulled in!

We enjoyed a nice level spot under the trees & fire before the rain started. Unfortunately we didn't have an opportunity to meet our host but communication was excellent. The rain kept us from exploring so maybe we'll be back 🙂.

Although we were in a neighborhood it was very peaceful and relaxing.

Hosts were very accommodating even allowed our stay in there absence. The circular driveway gave us easy access for our Vintage 23’ Class A, with easy access to electric and water. Lake Michigan was a short picturesque walk, no disappointment and we enjoyed a long walk with our two small dogs. To top it off a solo fire burner was available and used! Simple, we’ll be returning….
