RHINELANDER - Today, the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest opened picnic areas and beaches across most of the Forest as well as developed dispersed campsites.
In addition, restrooms and garbage receptacles will be available and fees will be charged at sites that are open and have full services.
Please note that some developed dispersed campsites in the Lakewood-Laona Ranger District remain closed due the July 2019 blowdown.
The Forest has two sites operated through a concessionaire permit that will also be opening.
The Two Lakes Campground will be open on a first-come, first-serve basis starting today and resume reservations on Sunday, June 7.
Group campsites at this facility will remain closed.
The Lost Lake Cabins will open, and reservations will be honored.
Visitors are encouraged to check their reservations and/or contact the concessionaire with questions.
In addition, the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest is lifting the campfire ban in Langlade and Oconto counties following recent rain events and current conditions.
The Forest will continue to monitor the fire danger in the July 2019 blowdown area and reassess restrictions as necessary.
