Overview

Overview

Black Lake is highly ranked as a family-favorite campground. It is spread out along the eastern shores of its namesake, Black Lake. The calm waters beckon to adventurers, offering fishing, boating, swimming and other recreational activities in the northwestern Wisconsin wilderness.

Natural Features:

The campground is located in a birch, pine and spruce forest that stretches along the beautiful 129-acre lake, in the southern part of the Chequamegon National Forest.

Recreation:

The lake offers plentiful fishing, with musky, walleye, bass and pan fish available in abundance. Kayaking and canoeing are also enjoyed by visitors, as the water is usually peaceful and calm. A variety of wildlife, including elk, deer, loon, fox and others, make their homes in the area and are often spotted by visitors.

Hundreds of miles of off-road vehicle, hiking and mountain biking trails surround the lake. The Black Lake interpretive trail offers a 4-mile, in-depth look at the nature that surrounds the wooded shoreline.

A grassy beach provides ample space to run and play, as well as a spot to relax.

Facilities:

The campground offers dozens of waterfront sites for tent and RV camping. Each site is equipped with tables and campfire rings with grills. Accessible vault toilets, drinking water, trash collection and recycling bins are also available.

Nearby Attractions:

Fuel, fishing supplies, firewood and restaurants are within a 15-mile drive of the campground, in the town of Hayward.
