At a Glance
09/16/2014: Open. The campground will close 09/28/2014. The Hatchery Loop at La Wis Wis Campground will remain closed to camping and occupancy at least through Memorial Day due to hazards posed by phellinus infection in trees in the area. The loop will be re-opened to camping as soon as hazards can be further evaluated and removed, hopefully by mid- to late-June.
