USDA Forest Service

The Lakewood/Laona Ranger District of the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest is looking for a motivated volunteer to serve as a campground host at Bear Lake Campground. The campground is located in northeast Wisconsin, near the towns of Laona and Wabeno.

If you are interested in a quiet campground and excellent pike fishing, then Bear Lake Campground is just the right place for you. Campsites are situated along the wooded shoreline and ridge with outstanding views to the lake.

Bear Lake Campground is located on the southwest side of Bear Lake. The 68 acre lake has plenty of good fishing for largemouth bass, crappies, and other pan fish. Motor use is restricted to electric motors only. The nearby Peshtigo and Rat Rivers offer good trout fishing. There is a new hiking opportunity; it is the new Rat River Trail. The new Rat River hiking trail is currently under development. Portions of the trail are complete. The trail is done from Blackwell Junction to Blackwell. Eventually the trail will be connected from the Nicolet State Trail to Bear Lake campground. There are other hiking trails in the area that are great for fall Grouse hunting. The lake also provides a great place for your kayak or canoe. Much wildlife can be viewed from the shores on the lake. There is a sandy swim area and a grassy picnic area. A boat landing is just to the north of the swim area.

There are 27 campsites available at Bear Lake. Bear Lake campground has five walk-in sites. The campground has waterfront campsites, however, the walk to the lake maybe steep. Sites can be used for tents and RV camping. Each site has a campfire ring and a picnic table. Vault toilets and drinking water is also available. The campground has trash collection and a recycling area.

Fuel, fishing supplies, firewood, ice, and restaurants are within 10 miles of this campground, in the town of Wabeno, and Laona.
