I'd love a few suggestions as to a good tent camping location within 100 miles of Oconomowoc. Must allow dogs and be near (ON WOULD BE BEST) water. My prefered site would be open and not in the woods. Geocaches nearby would be nice but not a must.

Is there anything on lake Michigan? In truth even a small lake or BIG pond would be fine, so long as my son can go fishing in it. On our last trip he caught something about 2 feet long....if I had a clue about fishing I could tell you what it was but my largest ever catch was a 6 inch bluegill.

This has always been a favorite of mine.

Sheboygan has quite a few caches too.

I have biked (yes the pedal kind) through that park on the way to door county a couple of times. Good suggestion....

That is one close enough for me to drive out and scout...Looks like a good possibility.

I don't camp. We did visit friends when they tent camp here.

Very secure area great swimming hiking everything you asked for. And reasonable. Plus there are many, many great caches around West Bend.

Here is another

http://www.hikercentral.com/campgrounds/113320.html

If you pick either of these let me know and we will get together. I know a great place in Dundee for pizza. Bensons in Dundee in the middle of the northern Kettle Marine has a whole bunch of varied caches.

Yep I agree. While I have never camped there I live about 6 miles from it and visit several times a year for swimming and kayaking with my kids.
