Imagine spending time on a warm sunny beach, hiking a forest trail, fishing for walleye, listening to loons calling, or enjoying a beautiful sunset ... experience all this in one of the Chippewa National Forest's developed campgrounds. All 21 campgrounds are accessible and located on 12 of the Forest's 1,300 lakes. Campgrounds are generally open from May to September. 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. If you are seeking a more primitive experience, there are 100 back-country campsites in the Forest.

UPDATE (1/12/17):  Due to unforeseen circumstances, the shower building remodeling project at Stony Point campground has been delayed. At this time we do not have an estimated time for completion, but it may not be until early summer 2017. We will keep the public updated on the progress as this project moves forward. Questions, please contact the Walker Ranger District Recreation Staff at 218.547.1044
