Description
Located in north central Wisconsin, these federal campgrounds are spread out between Ashland, WI, and Iron Mountain, MI. Good fishing as most sites have a small dock for fishing. Ice Age National Scenic Trails are nearby. Located in mature hardwood forests. All dirt but mostly level sites; more than half are on a lake. Most will accommodate tents and up to 45' MHs. Boat launches. All sites have picnic table and fire ring. Each site is well separated from neighboring sites by trees and underbrush. If you go to these federal forest campgrounds during the week, it is likely you will be one of only a few there. Weekends and holidays are packed and noisy, though not so bad before Memorial Day and after Labor Day. Premium sites are $12 but only $6 with a National Parks Golden Age pass. Regular sites are $10 and $5. No hookups for electricity, sewer or water. But there is a hand pump for water and a dump station that is free for registered park users. Each campground has multiple outdoor privies that are *VERY* clean. Sites are first come, first serve for sites not already reserved. During the week sites should be easy to find. Not so on weekends. This...like all of the National Park sites in the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest is a beautiful campground. Stop in the National Park Forest Ranger Station located in most larger towns in the area, and pick up a camping guide for the national forests in the area. There are a total of 25 campgrounds with hundreds of sites listed in the booklet with very good directions on how to get to each.

Yes, these are very nice campgrounds and have been getting more popular in the past few years with the state parks increasing camping fees. Gravel and dirt roads are winding, and can be in poor condition with rain, so check ahead. No hookups in most. Hand pump wells are monitered for water quality (which was good when I was last there). Rates are $8 to $50. See web site: http://www.fs.fed.us/r9/cnnf/rec/camping/index.html The most popular campgrounds fill fast in summer, so you should make reservations.
