Camping at Torch Lake Campground is a good base for exploring the Upper Bucktabon Springs State Natural Area, which features numerous softwater springs and ponds that drain into the Wisconsin River. The surrounding wetlands consist of shrubby shore fen, alder thicket, and northern sedge meadow. A network of trails wind through the natural area, and cross-country skiing is possible during the snowy winter months.Torch Lake Campground and RV Park is also on the doorstep of the Headwaters Wilderness, a 22,000-acre protected area within the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest. It encompasses the headwaters of the Pine River and large tracts of forested swampland, with some of the oldest and largest trees in the southwest Shelp Lake area. A series of primitive trails make it popular with adventurous hikers while Canada jays, boreal chickadees, and black-backed woodpeckers are among the regular bird sightings.Around an hour’s drive south of Torch Lake Campground is the Northern Highland American Legion State Forest, which encompasses more than 225,000 acres across three different counties. The Wisconsin, Flambeau, and Manitowish rivers all flow through its borders while several lakes dot the landscape. Aside from hiking and mountain biking, the Northern Highland American Legion State Forest is a popular fishing and boating destination, as well as being accessible to snowmobilers during the winter season. Hunting is permitted in designated areas, and Christmas trees are harvested here leading up to the festive season.
