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.
Laurel Lake Campground is a great place for those who enjoy water recreation activities. This small campground provides access to the 50-mile long Three Lakes--Eagle River Chain of Lakes. So get out your water skiis, bring your boat (a boat launch is located directly across from the parking area), and don't forget your fishing equipment! No swimming beach is provided here, so you'll have to do your swimming and sunbathing from your boat.
