Explosion of RV campgrounds stirs controversy in Wisconsin

May 25, 2022

An explosion of RV campgrounds during the pandemic has turned lake country in western Wisconsin into ground zero in a growing turf war over lake property. Cabin owners and many residents in Burnett and Washburn counties have fought vigorously over the last two years to stop the growth of these campgrounds.

The most notable complaints cite environmental impact, population overgrowth, and disturbing the peace they bought into when they built their cabins there. Campground developers say they are breaking no laws and fulfilling the growing demand for RV camping. KARE11
