Fishing on the forest. Just one way to enjoy the forest.

RHINELANDER, Wis. (July 6, 2018) – July is National Park and Recreation Month, and the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest is the perfect place to celebrate – and #DiscoverJuly. Don't let this all-too-fleeting month of joy and wonderment slip past without making at least one amazing memory you'll always cherish from 2018!

From swimming or hiking to boating, camping and more, you can find the perfect summer activity for every member of your family on the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest.

“There is so much more than trees here. Across this incredible expanse of 1.5 million acres of public land there are endless opportunities to recreate and explore, #ItsAllYours,” said Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest Recreation & Lands Program Manager Tim Vetter. “There is truly a spot here for everyone. We hope to see you soon.”

So get out and wet a line, dip a toe in the lake or go on a nature hike and count how many different kinds of native Wisconsin species you can spot. Remember: You don’t need fancy equipment or camping gear to enjoy a simple picnic. Lay out a blanket and set up a little spread to share.  

Be prepared: Pack plenty of water and protection from insects and the sun. Check with local officials for the latest rules and regulations in your area.

Most of all, enjoy! Happy National Park and Recreation Month from everyone with the USDA Forest Service’s Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest. We look forward to celebrating with you.
