The Eagle River/Florence Ranger District of the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest is located in northeast Wisconsin and Laurel Lake campground is in the county of Oneida, and the nearby Town of Three Lakes.
If you are interested in a campground located on the world's largest freshwater chain of lakes with excellent fishing, then Laurel Lake Campground, located on the north side of Laurel Lake, is just the right place for you. Campsites are situated both on and off the shoreline, but most offer excellent views of the lake.
The 249-acre lake has plenty of good fishing for musky, northern pike, walleye, largemouth bass, crappies, and other pan fish. Those who enjoy water activities will find that Laurel Lake and the Three Lakes-Eagle River Chain of Lakes extends nearly 50 miles, includes 28 named lakes, 174 miles of shoreline and a total of 11,528 acres of water. The lakes also provide a great place for your canoe, kayak or stand-up paddle board. Much wildlife can be viewed from the shores on the lake. A boat landing is also available at this site.
