Natural Features

The cabins sit amidst a forest of old-growth trees consisting mostly of Hemlock and Maple within walking distance of Lost Lake. The 92-acre lake gets its name from the lack of apparent inflow or outlet of water. The lake is actually fed by springs and the lake is a "No-Motor Lake". Tall white pines, hemlocks and other evergreens border the lake, Loons can be heard singing across the lake. A watchful eye can catch the resident eagle or osprey as they search the waters for their next meal. The lake is stocked yearly with Brown Trout and Rainbow Trout and also has a good population of Smallmouth Bass and panfish. The cabins are a short drive to the Whisker Lake Wilderness.

Great secluded getaway.

The cabins are large and the area is nice and secluded right on a lake. Swimming, boating, fishing, walking trails. Great family camping spot.

First to Review
Great cabin in a campground setting.

I went here a few years ago when my kids were a little younger and it was great. I believe it used to be a private camp that has now been converted to a public one. The cabins are a few hundred feet apart and there's access to the lake for swimming or boating. They have a main lodge which had some games and equipment for use. There's also an on site host with firewood for sale.

The interior of the cabins are spacious and could easily accommodate a large family. Its not too far from activities in Eagle River and there is a DNR center with some educational exhibits a few miles to the east. It was a really nice place to go to introduce the kids to the camping experience while they're young without having to pitch a tent or "rough it" right away.
