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.
Mineral Lake Campground is located on the 256-acre Mineral Lake, approximately 10 miles west of Mellen, on County Highway GG. It has 12 campsites, each including a parking spur, fire ring, picnic table and tent pad. The campsites can accommodate RV's up to 30 feet. Drinking water and vault toilets are available. Mineral Lake offers musky, bass, walleye, and panfish. Eagle watching is a favorite activity on this lake. A picnic area and boat launch are located one mile north on Forest Road 187.
