Rustic Sailor Lake Campground sits on the northwestern shores of scenic Sailor Lake. Its scenic views and secluded location make it popular for campers and explorers alike. The campground offers access to the lake as well as a beautiful picnic area and access to off-road vehicle trails.
Sailor Lake Campground is a favorite among off-road enthusiasts, offering direct access to the 70-mile Flambeau Trail System. The trail is highlighted by rolling terrain, tree-lined corridors, wooden bridges and vistas overlooking various bogs and lakes. It is a popular snowmobiling location during winter months. The campground is adjacent to 170-acre Sailor Lake, which is popular for boating and fishing. Anglers will find healthy populations of pan fish and northern pike. A boat ramp is located a mile south of the campground at the Sailor Lake Picnic Area. A picnic shelter is also avaialble at the picnic area.
The campground offers about two dozen sites for tent or RV camping. There are no hookups available and parking spurs are either grass or gravel. Some sites are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Each site is equipped with a table and campfire ring. Vault toilets and drinking water are provided. Some sites are secluded by trees and some are situated on the waterfront.
The campground is laid out in two loops and situated on the shores of Sailor Lake at an elevation of about 1,460 feet. The sites are shaded by a mixed hardwood forest.
The campground is located approximately 11 miles southeast of Fifield. The city boasts a variety of tourist attractions, including historic sites, a reconstructed logging dam and a couple of war memorials.

Nestled within Wisconsin forest you find Sailor Lake. This national forest campground has water access as well as sites away from the lake. We stayed at site 12 - a pull through site away from the water.
Many, although not all, of the waterside sites are for tents. You park and carry your gear down a few steps for a close to the water feel. There is an open area for everyone to enjoy the lake - it’s filled with purple flowers today. With plenty of woods around, all sites offer privacy but they have different vibes. Plenty of choice here so look around or reserve one. Plenty of sites available for walk-ins too. A couple of vault toilets, garage receptacle and water source round out a nice camp.
ATV trails as well as non-motorized trails are plentiful. We hiked on them and it was nice. Minimal cell signal encourages disconnecting for your stay.
