Yellowstone state park. Used to go there with the family as a kid and crush a mixed bag of pike, bass, catfish, gills, crappie and walleye. Musky fished there a few years back with some buddies. Did ok with musky but always did better on everything else. Lots of big pike in there. Haven't been there in a few years but the lake is walking distance from the campground and they had boat rentals but they were a bit further walk from campground. Plenty of shore fishing on the north side. Buzzbaits for pike at dusk and standard slip bobber with minnows/crawlers for everything else.

That's Illinois where there is no alcohol allowed in state parks. It's stupid, just like everything else in Illinois. That rule doesn't apply to Wisconsin, except for a small number of locations.

Camp Mana-Pines

http://www.campmana-pine.com/

Campgrounds are pretty basic but they have firewood delivered to your pit, a small store, live bait, boat rental and the lake is amazingly scenic as the majority of it is part of the Manistee National Forest.

Also, caught 2 of my top 10 largest pike of my life on that lake, one of which was over 40" and released to fight another day. Though that was over 10 years ago so probably not still haunting the waters.

Depending on when you're going you also have the possibility of steelhead or salmon below the dam as this is the first dam on the Manistee river in from Lake Michigan.

Wisconsin Dells. I think the river is a little high but still good fishing.
