“over a million & a half acres”
The Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest is located in Wisconsin's Northwoods, covering over a million and a half acres. The Chequamegon side of the forest covers about 858,400 acres in Ashland, Bayfield, Sawyer, Price, Taylor, and Vilas counties while the Nicolet side covers nearly 661,400 acres in Florence, Forest, Langlade, Oconto, Oneida, and Vilas counties. These national forests are best known for recreation, including camping, hiking, fishing, cross country skiing, and snowmobiling.
Beautiful campsite (Black Lake Campground Site #29) gorgeous hiking, and 29 is right on the lake literally woke up to some of the most beautiful scenery ever.
A few things to consider:
•No showers, we rigged one up out of some tarp and a camelback and while I enjoyed the shower more because of the hard work that went into it my friend did not share my enthusiasm.
•Winter WI, the nearest town, is eight miles away.
• Its HELLA secluded, about a three mile drive in down exclusively dirt roads and the site we were at was 400+ ft of hiking in.
• it's a fishing lake not a swimming lake
