Nice and quiet.

Wanoka is a quiet campground just off the Hwy 2. It has a nice little trout pond and is a good place to teach the younger kids fishing skills. It is however not ideal for young ones who like to play as there is no playground.

Wanoka is your standard National Forest Campground

This is your typical National Forest campground. Very few amenities, a small lake, and a few hiking trails. The positives is it is easy to find, it is right off of the highway, and if you have an ATV you will be able to use the ATV trails. It's not bad for an overnight stay.

About This Campground

Wanoka Recreation Area is located off an ATV route that connects to local ATV trails and other open routes. Visitors may ride their ATV or smaller UTVs to and from the route.  ATVs may not be used to drive around the campground for fun. ATVs need to be kept on their trailers or on the parking spur on the site.

Located approximately 7 miles east of Iron River, this campground is located on a 15-acre lake that has panfish and trout. Wanoka Lake Campground has 20 sites. Each site has a defined parking spur, fire ring, picnic table, and tent pad, and can accommodate RV's up to 35 feet. Please help to not increase the size of the area and keep all equipment on the parking spur. There are two pull-through sites.  Drinking water and vault toilets are available. There is a carry-in-boat access.

Did you forget something? Don't sweat it! The small town of Iron River can meet your camping supply needs ranging from groceries to firewood.  If you need an out-of-state fishing or ATV/UTV license, Iron River gas stations have these available for purchase.

So, if you like to fish, kayak, hike, bike or enjoy being close to town, then the Wanoka Recreation Area is the place for you, conveniently located just a short drive from Iron River.
