Bagley Rapids campground is in need of a camp host for the summer of 2016.
The Lakewood/Laona Ranger District of the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest is located in northeast Wisconsin and Bagley Rapids is in the county of Oconto, and the nearby town of Mountain, WI.
Outdoor recreation opportunities abound at this “recreation district.”
If you enjoy listening to the soothing sound of flowing water, you will appreciate this campground. About one-third of the 30 campsites are located adjacent to the Oconto River. Trout fishing, berry picking, rafting, canoeing, and kayaking, and sightseeing can all be done in or near this campground. Weekends bring the most campers, with only moderate use occurring during the week. So come and relax among the pines and enjoy the sound and beauty of Bagley Rapids Campground. The Green Lake picnic and swim area and a boat landing are directly across Highway 32. NOTE: A separate fee is required at Green Lake for using that facility.
