Overview

Overview

Deer Lake Campground is located on scenic Cut Foot Sioux Lake, next to Lake Winnibigoshish, in the heart of the Chippewa National Forest. Visitors come to the area for boating, trophy muskie fishing and beautiful scenery.

Natural Features:

The campground is situated on the western shore of Cut Foot Sioux Lake and is split into two separate loops. The North Deer Loop is covered by a hardwood forest of maple and oak, with some mature pine trees scattered throughout the area. South Deer Loop is forested with mature red and white pines.

The lake is home to a variety of waterfowl and birds of prey, including loons, osprey and bald eagles.

Recreation:

Boating, swimming and fishing are popular activities on Cut Foot Sioux Lake. A boat ramp is centrally located between the campground's two loops and provides lake access via Biauswah Creek. A large swimming beach is located at the North Deer Loop and a smaller beach is located at South Deer Loop. Boats may be moored offshore.

Miles of trails in the area provide great hiking, horseback riding, mountain biking and birding opportunities. The 26-mile Cut Foot Sioux National Recreation Area Trail runs through the campground and connects with the Simpson Creek Trail.

Cut Foot Sioux Lake is located next to Lake Winnibigoshish, which can be accessed from Cut Foot Sioux. Lake Winnie offers excellent fishing opportunities for walleye, perch and muskie. It is one of Minnesota's premier fisheries. Boating and water skiing are popular activities.

Facilities:

The campground offers several single-family campsites, each equipped with a picnic table and campfire ring. Vault toilets and hand-pumped drinking water are provided. Firewood is available for purchase from the host.

Nearby Attractions:

Down the road, East Seelye Bay offers a large picnic area, boat landing with dock and a swimming beach.
