About Us

From Campfire Casual to Nature Enthusiasts

We started Midwest Camping because we were tired of spending hours sifting through endless campground reviews and websites. We wanted a one-stop shop for all things Midwest camping, where seasoned outdoorsmen and curious first-timers could find the perfect place to pitch their tent (or park their RV!).

We are a couple who have explored nearly every corner of the Midwest, from the serene shores of Lake Michigan to the rolling hills of Indiana. We’ve camped in everything from rustic, backcountry sites to fully-equipped campgrounds with swimming pools and laundry facilities.

Sharing Our Passion for the Great Outdoors

Our goal is to share our passion for the Midwest’s natural beauty and make camping accessible to everyone. We believe that spending time in nature is a powerful way to:

  • De-stress and disconnect: Escape the daily grind and reconnect with the simple joys of being outdoors.
  • Build lasting memories: Gather around the campfire, share stories, and create experiences that will be cherished for years to come.
  • Connect with loved ones: Camping provides a unique opportunity to bond with family and friends in a setting free from distractions.
  • Develop a love for nature: Inspire a sense of appreciation for the environment and a desire to protect it.

Your Midwest Camping Resource

Midwest Camping isn’t just about finding a campground; it’s about creating unforgettable adventures. We offer:

  • State-specific and county-by-county campground recommendations: Narrow your search and find the perfect spot based on your location and preferences.
  • Detailed campground information: Learn about amenities, activities, nearby attractions, and what to expect at each site.
  • Essential camping tips and tricks: We’ll share our hard-earned knowledge on everything from gear selection to packing lists and campfire cooking.

Let Midwest Camping be your guide to exploring the natural wonders of the Midwest. We’re here to help you discover the magic of spending time outdoors, whether you’re roasting marshmallows under a starlit sky or waking up to the sounds of a babbling brook.

So, grab your tent, pack your bags, and get ready to experience the Midwest like never before!
