Devil Track Lake Campground

Area Status: Open
Devil Track Campground

Devil Track Campground is a nicely wooded campground located on the shore of Devil Track Lake.  There are many young pines in the area, making it an excellent spot to look for wildlife.  Devil Track Lake is a rough translation of the Ojibwe name: 'spirit' would probably better capture the concept than 'devil'.  Regardless of the name, the lake is fun to fish. A carry down boat launch and pier are located at the campground and a drive in ramp located about 0.5 miles away will help you get a line in the water.
