Pine Lake campground is in need of a campground host.
The Lakewood/Laona Ranger District of the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest is located in northeast Wisconsin. Pine Lake is in the county of Forest, near the town of Crandon, WI.
This campground is located along the west shore of one of the largest lakes within the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest. The 1,670 acre Pine Lake is a favorite of anglers. If you are looking for northern pike, bass, walleye, or pan fish, this is the place. Twelve wooded campsites, and a picnic area complete the setting. With a paved access road and toilet facilities that are wheelchair accessible, Pine Lake Campground is a real gem. The campground has a paved road access to the only public boat landing on Pine Lake.
NOTE: If you are camping at the Pine Lake Campground in the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest, you do not need to pay the user fee at the boat landing. Just place the current campsite camping envelope stub so it is clearly visible on the dash of the vehicle parked at the boat landing.
There are two Impoundments close to Pine Lake. The Wildcat Creek and the Coyote Creek Impoundments have plenty of wildlife to see.
There are 12 campsites available at Pine Lake. The campground has a mixture of conifers and hardwoods.
