Weekend get away

Was quite, clean, and restful. The only challenge was mosquitoes they swarm so I recommend bug spray strong and screen tent. I appreciated the large dumpster on the way out, great job USNF!

Tall trees and secluded campsites.

Spent 2 nights this past week. Campsites are well maintained and spacious. Each site is secluded from the next site. May hear some wood chopping but little else. This is the reason I like the National Forest Campgrounds.

Off the beaten path

This was one of the few sites that still had availability a couple weekends ago (July). The sites are surrounded by trees so you don't see your fellow campers, but still close enough that you can hear them. The campsites are located along different loops and the location itself was great.

About This Campground

Overview

Day Lake Campground is situated in northwestern Wisconsin, not far from the shores of Lake Superior. The spacious and peaceful Day Lake offers a family-friendly campground with swimming beaches, a boat launch and picnic area. Day Lake is a designated off-road vehicle campground, allowing off-road vehicle use to and from the nearby trails.

Recreation

Located in the elk capital of Wisconsin, the Day Lake area has activities for everyone. Miles of off-road vehicle, hiking and mountain biking trails are nearby on the Dead Horse Run Off-road Vehicle (ATV/UTV) Trail. A half-mile interpretive trail can be accessed from the campground.

A boat ramp and picnic area with beach access are located two miles south of the campground, on County Highway M.

The 640-acre lake is a popular destination for anglers, with musky, bass and panfish available in abundance. The area is also ideal for kayaking, canoeing and swimming. Elk, eagles, loons and other wildlife are often spotted in the area.

Facilities

The campground offers dozens of single-family campsites for tent and RV camping. Only the Paper Birch loop has a paved road, while the remainder of roads within the campground are gravel. The parking aprons are grass and dirt.

Each campsite is equipped with tables and campfire rings with grills. Accessible vault toilets and hand pump drinking water are also provided. Trash collection and recycling bins are available at the campground as well.

The Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest offers 845,000 acres of lush landscape dotted with lakes, rivers and streams. Pine, spruce, maple, aspen and balsam forests, as well as extensive jack pine plantations, make up the vegetation.

Nearby Attractions

A general store, bait shop, firewood vendor, fuel and restaurants are located in Clam Lake, about a mile from the campground. The local community club hosts an annual July 4th fireworks display.
