Camping

Pack your tent and sleeping bag (don’t forget the bug spray) and get ready to experience beautiful campgrounds in the Beloit region!

Camping in picturesque preserves in and around Beloit is a perfect getaway. The green, wooded areas are home to dozens of campsites, all open to public use. Relax in the cool maple grove, roast s’mores into the night, and try your luck at fishing!

Other than fishing on your camping trip, you can enjoy swimming and scuba diving. Or just take in the beauty of tree-lined shorelines and beaches.
