Imagine spending time on a warm sunny beach, hiking a forest trail... fresh walleye, loons calling, a sunset and northern lights. All 21 campgrounds are accessible and located on 12 of the Forest's 1,300 lakes.
Campgrounds are generally open from mid-May to mid-September; some are open all year with no water or garbage pickup off-season though walk-in access may be required. Campground facilities vary from flush toilets and showers to rustic campgrounds with vault toilets and hand pumps. Each campsite has a picnic table, fireplace, tent pad and parking spot.
There are 10 resorts located on National Forest Land which operate under a special use permit from the Chippewa National Forest. All of the resorts are open during the summer tourist season and most are open year round. All resorts offer accomodations and some offer small stores, food service and more. List of resorts
