About Boulder Lake

Boulder Lake Campground is conveniently located near Boulder Lake in northern Wisconsin. It is the forest's largest campground but campsites fill up fast. The campground is home to individual and group sites, making it an ideal location to relax with friends or family. Recreational opportunities abound.


Boulder Lake provides ample opportunities for power boating, water skiing, fishing and swimming. Anglers might catch walleye, northern pike, bass or panfish. Ice fishing is also popular on the lake, and the boat ramp and parking area are plowed during the winter to provide better access to the lake.

Nearby streams are good for trout fishing and in addition, the Wolf River offers whitewater rafting and canoeing opportunities. Educational programs may be offered sporadically at the campground's amphitheater.


The campground offers dozens of accessible, single-family sites for tent and RV camping. Ten accessible group sites are also available for reservation. They can accommodate anywhere from 16 to 30 people.

Campsites are equipped with tables and campfire rings with grills. Accessible vault toilets, showers and drinking water are provided. Some sites offer electric hookup. A dump station is located within the campground. Some campsites are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Natural Features

The campground lies around the southern end of 362-acre Boulder Lake and is the largest public campground in the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest area. It is located in a stand of young hardwoods, overlooking the lake. Some campsites are situated along the water's edge and others are further away, providing a quieter camping experience. Puddles and damp spots are common throughout the lush campground.

This is such an awesome campground located right in the Nicole National Forest. The lake is super clean, the sites are very nice, and it’s nice and secluded. Enjoy the drive in!

Perfect Timing Memorial Day Weekend

We went rafting on the Wolf River and decided to camp at Boulder Lake. It was Memorial Day weekend and rainy, so there wasn't a lot of people camping. We drove around and picked out an amazing site, then reserved it on the spot. We were right on the lake and woke up to a cool view. Also woke up to someone snoring, and some loud ducks and frogs, but it was all good. lol Toilets and showers were clean, camp host was friendly. We drove quite a ways for firewood, but later found out we could've bought it someplace closer.

We love it!

We chose this campground on a whim since we wanted to be near Lakewood where I would spend summers as a kid. We love this place and ended up choosing it for both of our camping trips last summer. We in fact got the same exact site and it’s our favorite anyway. This campground is pet friendly- We took our bulldog camping with us. We checked out the beach and it was very accessible. The showers , Bathrooms and Vault Toilets were all clean. We did enjoy the hiking on the campground but there were some parts that were a little overgrown. Overall we love this place and it’s our go to!

Boulder Lake

Nice campground with electric at some sites and showers! Lake is a good size and beach is very nice. Personally prefer the lake sites, most have sandy beach like areas right by campsite then!! Reservations can be made, which is always nice!!
