Family Camping Guide to Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois & Michigan by Frazier Douglass

A Room of One's Own is excited to welcome Frazier Douglass, who will showcase his considerable experience in Midwestern camping to our store in support of his latest book, The Family Camping Guide to Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois, and Indiana!

Frazier Douglass was born and raised in Birmingham, Alabama. He earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in psychology from Auburn University and a Ph.D. in clinical psychology from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. His professional career began in 1979 as a clinical psychologist for a large mental health center in south Alabama. After ten years, he secured a position as a professor of psychology at a small university in north Alabama and taught psychology for twenty-five years.

Since the age of eighteen, he has been an avid tent camper and has taken hundreds of camping vacation trips around the country. Some of his early trips were to the Grand Canyon, Northern Utah, Manitoba Canada, the Great Plains of Kansas, Denver Colorado, and the Florida Gulf Coast. In the mid 1990s, he served as the campground host in a small Dane County Wisconsin county park campground. In 2010, he and his wife began taking three to four week circle tours around Lake Michigan every summer—camping in dozens of campgrounds along the way. To date he has camped in 132 popular campgrounds in Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois, and Indiana.

Frazier spent over three years thoroughly researching 721 state, federal, county and municipal campgrounds. His book is organized by geographic regions in each state identifying the largest and most popular campgrounds, which makes it perfect for family camping excursions or retiree getaways.


Inside you’ll find:

  • Critical information for all 721 state, federal, county, and municipal camping destinations in the four Lake Michigan states
  • Details needed to evaluate each property as a possible destination, make reservations, and navigate to it
  • Public campgrounds organized by geographic location, management authority, and number of campsites
  • A unique system of reference for towns, highways, and landmarks to locate campgrounds on a highway map
  • Procedures for planning tent camping vacation trips
