The Apostle Islands Area Campground is just 15 minutes’ drive from the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest. It was heavily logged during the early 20th century before being replanted by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s. Maple, oak, beech, and aspen trees now blanket large areas, together with wetlands, pine savanna, and wildflower-filled meadows. There are numerous hiking trails to explore, with white-tailed deer, beavers, and river otters regularly spotted. Birdwatchers may also be rewarded with sightings of pileated woodpeckers, bald eagles, and white-winged crossbills, as well as numerous species of thrushes, sparrows, and warblers. The Chequamegon National Forest’s glacial lakes are well stocked with walleye, crappie, and northern pike while the streams are home to brown, rainbow, and brook trout.
Also nearby is Copper Falls State Park, which sprawls across just over 3,000 acres along a section of the Bad River as it flows through a waterfall-filled gorge. The region was once mined for copper by Old Copper Culture Indians and early European settlers, with the park now listed on the National Register of Historic Places. You can cool off with a refreshing swim in Loon Lake, which is also accessible to kayakers and canoeists, while trout fishing is possible in the Bad River and Tyler's Forks. Around 17 miles of hiking trails wind through the park, including a section of the North Country National Scenic Trail, with some accessible to cross-country skiers and snowshoeing in the winter months.
The Apostle Islands Area Campground is an ideal base for exploring the 21 islands of the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore, which is renowned for its historic lighthouses and sandstone sea caves. There are public docking areas on many of the islands if you have your own boat or you can rent a kayak to explore at your leisure. Aside from fishing and hiking, the islands are also popular destinations for scuba diving, with some interesting rock formations and shipwrecks to explore. Among the numerous lighthouses you can visit is the Sand Island lighthouse, with boat tours run by the National Park Service during the summer months.
