The longest camping & biking trip run by Pine Point Ski Club and, just like in prior years... we have the entire hilltop reserved just for us :)
Check out the pictures form previous year here
Bring family and friends and join us for camping weekend at Benson’s Campground near Campbellsport, Wisconsin, about a 3 hour drive from Chicago. We encourage you try out the weekend activities Pine Point has in store for you, however, if you just want to come out and spend a lazy weekend in the woods – that will work too :) We will have maps and trip sheets for each rider, for 38, 56, and 76 mile routes for the Saturday biking and/or SKATING (just follow Don or Jason) for the smoothest pavement. Sunday options depend on your energy level; road ride - using one of the defined route or MTB ride in the Kettle Moraine State Forest (near Greenbush).
Most people usually show up at the campground before dark Friday evening, because it’s just easier to put up a tent when you can see what you’re doing. The campsite is relatively isolated from civilization, but the bathrooms and hot showers are just a short walk down the hill. If the bike ride isn't enough for you, the campground has a volleyball court, horseshoe pit, and a small beach on Long Lake along with a couple of kayaks to rent out . Most of us just relax on the wooded hilltop around the fire pit, enjoying conversation and favorite beverages.
Arriving at the campground, setting up tents. We will be starting a fire 7.30ish, meaning the dinner will come off the grill around 8:00 pm
Breakfast in the woods, biking/skating during the day and dinner at the Tiki Bar&Grill on the beach
Breakfast followed by more biking/skating (whatever you can handle), leaving for home
