It would be nice if there were some nice camping near Tomahawk. Lincoln County does have 2 campgrounds that I'm aware. Unfortunately they are not monitored and have reputations as party spots. Otter Lake campground is really a pretty little rustic spot, if handled correctly could be a nice little get-a-way for families. I've never been to Tug Lake but it's my understanding it's pretty much the same deal there.
Should the city of Tomahawk again consider camping at Bradley Park? In my opinion, NO, for the environmental impact. Today's campers, for the most part, aren't tents, small pop-ups, or small travel trailers. The big rigs cause damage to needed undergrowth, increase noise pollution, to name a few. Many campers feel that electricity is a necessity, would the city want to spend the money for that improvement, along with the improvements needed to once again make campsites at the park? Budgets are tight, would the revenue from camping meet the expenses, probably not. If the sites would be improved without electricity the campers coming in would bring generators, further causing harm to the delicate environment. There would need to be monitoring of the campsites to keep safe and friendly, another expense to the city most likely not recoverable.
I certainly hope that the city never considers camping at Bradley Park. Things have changed since camping was allowed, I feel that it would be a detriment to the pristine beauty and the quiet of the park.
Life is too short for drama & petty things!
So, laugh insanely, love truly and forgive quickly!
