Overview

Overview

Smith Rapids Campground is located on the South Fork of the Flambeau River. With campsites designated to accommodate equestrians, it is an ideal location for horseback riding. Hiking, river fishing and canoeing are popular activities.

Natural Features:

At an elevation of about 1,500 feet, the campground provides shady, wooded sites. Smith Rapids is located on the South Fork of the Flambeau River, with a scenic view of Smith Rapids Covered Bridge. Constructed in 1991, the bridge is the only glue-laminated town lattice covered bridge in Wisconsin.

Recreation:

The campground is specifically tailored to accommodate horseback riders, providing direct access to the 18.5-mile Smith River Saddle Equestrian Trail. The trails in the area are very rugged and have a limited maintenance schedule, but remain popular with equestrian riders and campers alike.

The fast-flowing South Fork of the Flambeau River is popular among canoeists. A carry-down boat ramp is available at the campground. The river is populated with a variety of trout.

The campground also provides access to the 60-mile Flambeau Trail System, open to off-road vehicles, hiking and mountain biking. The trail is highlighted by rolling terrain, tree-lined corridors, a wooden bridge and vistas overlooking various bogs and lakes. It is a popular snowmobiling location during winter months.

Facilities:

The campground offers single-family sites for tent and RV camping. Several of the sites have extra long parking spurs to accommodate horse trailers. All sites are equipped with hitching racks. Tables and campfire rings with grills are provided, as are vault toilets and drinking water.

Nearby Attractions:

Park Falls, Wisconsin is approximately 17 miles from the campground and is a full service community.
