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.
Kentuck Lake Campground is one of the 11 percent that will have reduced services for the 2015 camping season. The reduced services include the closure of the upper loop (sites 23-31) and reduced mowing. Campsites 1-22 remain open and available to visitors.
Walleye, musky, bass, crappies, and panfish are abundant in Kentuck Lake, which got its name from early settlers who came to the area from Kentucky. This 955-acre lake is a favorite of anglers. A convenient 31-site campground is adjacent to the boat landing. Newly renovated sites and facilities offer access for persons with disabilities. Kentuck Lake is also connected to Spectacle Lake Campground by a scenic two and one-half mile hiking trail.
Kentuck Lake is located east of Eagle River. Take Hwy 70 east 13.4 miles to FR 2176 (Divide Road). Turn left (north) on FR 2176 and continue 2.7 miles to the campground.
Individual campsite fee is $15/ night for lakeshore family sites; $12/night for off lake sites.
