Fishing for trout or other game fish is available in any of our 600 fishable lakes or 1200 miles of fishable stream. Opportunities to encounter many rare species of fish, wildlife or plants abound. Bird watching, viewing fantastic fall colors and nature study experiences await those seeking to experience nature.
For those who enjoy camping and hiking experiences, visit one of our 51 campground or 800 miles of trail to hike and experience the north woods. For those that enjoy quiet places, the Forest contains five (5) designated wilderness areas and several semi-primitive non-motorized areas.
Motorized recreation is also available to the public with approximately 300 miles of designated trail winding through the diverse landscape.
All activities support local tourism to the communities of the North Woods.
