Top 7 Songs to Add to your Summer Travel Playlist

Snow may still be on the ground but camping season is right around the corner. If you’re anything like us, you’ve already started making travel plans for your Northwoods summer adventure. Swimming, fishing, ATVing – you name it, we’ve got it. Your home away from home is where you relax, unwind and get away from it all. To kick that off, there’s no better feeling than driving out of the city and into one of our campgrounds.

When the time comes to hit the road, add these songs to your travel playlist to get everyone in the mood for a summer of woods, water and plenty of memories. 

  1. Life is a Highway – John Cochrane

Life is a highway – or maybe it’s a seasonal camper at one of our premier resorts and campgrounds. Either way, this tune will keep you humming your entire drive and into the summer of your dreams. 

  1. Take Me Home, Country Roads – John Denver 

You may not be driving to West Virginia, but those country roads to northern Wisconsin take you right to the place where you belong. 

  1. Take it Easy – The Eagles 

This tune is an instant reminder to relax, unwind and well, take it easy. When you’re on your way up north though, that’s certainly not going to be hard. 

  1. I’ve Been Everywhere – Johnny Cash 

Even with a car full of sunscreen, snacks and floaties, you’ll still be just as cool

as Johnny Cash with this song on your playlist! 

  1. Ramblin’ Man – The Allman Brothers Band 

You don’t have to tell us twice! The lyrics of this classic song might not scream summer but the beat is what keeps us rambling from one adventure to the next. 

  1. Soak Up the Sun – Sheryl Crow 

Sun-kissed lazy days are what dreams are made of. Lucky for you, the great Northwoods is full of them. 

  1. Cruise – Florida Georgia Line/Nelly 

It’s mandatory to roll your windows down and turn your radio up when this one comes on. When you’re cruising to the Northwoods, you just can’t help it!
