Chippewa National Forest


Twenty-six campgrounds, located on 12 of the Chippewa National Forest's 1,300 lakes, are open from mid-May to mid-September. Some are open all year. Campground facilities vary from modern, sporting flush toilets and showers to the more rustic, without any modern conveniences.

Reservations are recommended and can be made 14 days in advance for a small fee. Many campgrounds are universally accessible, allowing disabled visitors to enjoy a camping holiday in the forest. For a totally primitive camping experience, over 400 "dispersed" campsites are available along hiking trails or lakes. You are sure to have a "get away from it all" holiday when going primitive. The forest insists that all campers practice "leave no trace" camping by packing out what they pack in.
