Mineral Lake campground is a favored camping and recreating destination within the Chequamegon National Forest. The campground sits at the south shore of scenic Mineral Lake, offering visitors opportunities for fishing, boating and swimming on the pristine, calm waters.

Natural Features:

The 256-acre Mineral Lake is surrounded by a mixed hardwoods forest. Several campsites overlook the lake and the area is home to a variety of birds, including eagles, and plentiful wildlife.


Boating, swimming and fishing are popular activities among visitors. A boat ramp to the lake is provided off of Forest Service Road 187, about a mile from the campground.

Anglers can expect a catch of a variety of freshwater lake and river species, including musky, bass, walleye and pan fish. Eagle watching is also a popular pastime.

The forest is home to hundreds of miles of off-road vehicle, hiking and mountain biking trails, as well as numerous lakes, ponds and rivers to sink a line or launch a boat. Access to the North Country National Scenic Trail, which traverses thousands of miles from New York to North Dakota, is available nearby.


The campground offers less than a dozen single-family campsites for tent and RV camping. Each site is equipped with tables and campfire rings with grills. Accessible vault toilets and drinking water are provided. Trash collection and recycling bins are also available at the campground.

Nearby Attractions:

Morgan Falls and St. Peter's Dome, the highest peak in the forest, are both located nearby and make excellent day trips.
