This summer the majority of our recreation sites will be open providing a safe and enjoyable recreation experience, however, due to decreasing visitors and increasing operational costs we will be reducing and eliminating services at roughly 11 percent of the Forest’s developed recreation areas.
The Day Lake Campground is one of the 11 percent that will have reduced services this summer. The reduced services include the closure of Blueberry and Heron loops. Musky, Red Pine, Paper Birch and Jack Pine loops all remain open. The beach, boat ramp and public water supply also remain available at Day Lake Campground.
