W R Wadewitz Nature Camp in Waterford

Activities: Birding, Camping, Cross-Country Skiing, Hiking

Two people walking along a wide path in an open field.


A 168-acre Racine County Park maintained primarily as a primitive group camping site. However, it is open to the public for hiking and cross-country skiing on a system of wide trails that run through a hardwood forest and across prairies on some of the finest glacial topography to be found in Racine County.


A rare example of a low-impact property that is intended to be left in a rustic state and accessible only on foot. It is used for year-round camping by scouting and other youth organizations, but other groups may also use the camp. Reservations must be made through the Racine County website. There are no individual camping accommodations.


Identified by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology program as a birding hotspot.
