The Lakewood/Laona Ranger District of the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest is located in northeast Wisconsin. Bear Lake is near the town of Wabeno, WI in the country of Forest.
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.
