A yurt village is coming to the Circle M RV Campground this summer!
What’s a yurt, you say? A yurt is a dome-shaped, circular tent-style structure that has been used for thousands of years as a shelter for nomadic peoples. Yurts have become a popular and fun way for modern vacationers to immerse themselves in the outdoors while maintaining the comforts of home.
Though our yurts boast a shape that harkens back to an ancient time where nomads needed a portable and durable shelter, the yurts at Circle M will include all of the modern amenities that you’d expect – a functional kitchenette, space to sleep up to 6 people, and private restrooms with showers.
Circle M RV Campground is located in Lancaster County in the heart of Pennsylvania Dutch Country. This western-style campground has plenty of amenities – from swimming pools to shuffleboard, weekend activities to barbecues and picnics – it’s easy to make Circle M your next destination for relaxation! Plus, Circle M RV Campground is close to activities in Lancaster County including Amish attractions, or nearby shopping and dining.
Sure you’ve heard of Door County, that oasis in the midwest known for its year-round water parks and five state parks! Nestled along Lake Michigan on the Wisconsin side, there is always something to explore along Door County peninsula’s 300 miles of shoreline and Tranquil Timbers in Sturgeon Bay is the perfect home base for your Door County summertime adventures! We’ve got a few of the area’s many unique excursions and activities rounded up here. Check ‘em out and let us know where you plan to retreat this summer in Wisconsin!
Frank Lloyd Wright Heritage Trail
One of the state’s most famous Wisconsinites was Frank Lloyd Wright, often called “America’s greatest architect,” who designed a number of recognizable buildings around the country like the Guggenheim Museum in New York City. He was famous for his “prairie style” of architecture, which is characterized by open floor plans and low pitched roofs. Wright designed all kinds of buildings from churches to single family homes, museums, and a small number of government buildings. If you’re up for a unique experience to complement your vacation, take a self-guided tour along the Frank Lloyd Wright Heritage Trail. This trail stretches 200 miles beginning on the Illinois border on I-94 and takes visitors westward to a number of Wright’s famous structures and ends at his home and studio, “Taliesin,” in Spring Green, WI.

Whitefish Dunes State Park
Whitefish Dunes State Park is just one of five incredible state parks in Door County. Open year round, this park is right along the beaches of Lake Michigan. Exploring the dunes is never dull. There is plenty of space to enjoy picnicking on the beach, exploring the dunes, and hiking along its many trails. Be sure to stop by the park’s nature center where there are exhibits on ecology, geology, and human history, plus year-round education programs. Whitefish Dunes State Park is just a short, 30 minute drive on WI-42N from Tranquil Timbers Camping Resort.
Hang with the locals and enjoy some down-home Wisconsin cooking and fun at Waterfront Mary’s, a restaurant and bar that is walkable from Tranquil Timbers and sits along the waterfront of Sturgeon Bay. This place also boasts the best fish fry and burgers in Door County, but you’ll have to taste for yourself! Sitting on the deck of this classic local hangout provides panoramic views of the Bay and often, you’ll find yourself here listening to live music and dancing the night away.
