Located on a sparkling 110-acre lake, the East Twin Campground is a known family favorite. The area provides access to a beautiful portion of the Chequamegon National Forest in northwestern Wisconsin.
A variety of recreational activities are available, including fishing, boating and swimming on the adjacent lake. A boat ramp is located about a half-mile east of the campground, providing access to East Twin Lake and also features a walk-in portage to West Twin lake which is located just outside the campground. Largemouth bass and pan fish are akin to the body of water, as well as an occasional musky or other freshwater species.
Miles of hiking and mountain bike trails are located nearby and just down the road is an established Blue Heron rookery.
The campground offers several single family campsites for tent and RV camping with many located on the lake. East Twin campground offers two tent walk-in sites for those looking for a somewhat more secluded camping experience. Each site is equipped with tables and campfire rings with grills. Accessible vault toilets and drinking water are provided. Trash collection and an aluminum can recycling bin are also available at the campground.
The campground is situated in a maple, birch and hemlock forest, with many sites overlooking the lake. A variety of birds and wildlife, including elk, eagles, loons, blue heron and other species, make their homes near the campground.
The Dead Horse Run trailhead is located just five miles south on County Road GG.

We stayed here last summer on our way out west. East Twin Lake Campground is in the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest Near the town of Clam Lake. The camp is about 1 hour south of Ashland Wisconsin on Lake Superior. The campground has 2 small loops with about 5 or 6 camps on each loop. The campsites have nice views of the East Twin Lake. They sites have picnic tables, fire rings, and some privacy. I really like this campground and enjoyed the views of the lake in the morning. They have self checkin and the sites are well maintained.
