The campground is often highlighted for its scenic lake views and the numerous recreational activities available.


The campground is located within the national forest and is generally accessible via local highways and forest roads. It's important to check the local forest service or official maps for specific directions, as GPS devices may not always provide reliable routes on forest lands.

  • Picnic tables and fire rings at most camp sites.

Standard national forest campground regulations apply, which generally include:

  • Quiet hours to ensure all guests have a peaceful experience.

Always check with the local ranger district for current rules and regulations before your trip, especially regarding fire safety and wildlife interactions.


Camping spots in national forests can range from first-come, first-served to reservable in advance:

  • Reservable sites might be available through a central reservation system provided by the U.S. Forest Service or through third-party websites.
  • Walk-up sites may be available too, but during peak season, these can fill up quickly.


The Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest campgrounds are generally seasonal:

  • Open season typically extends from late spring to early autumn.
  • Closed season during the winter months because of snow and cold conditions.

However, seasons can vary with weather and facilities, so it's best to check the exact dates for West Point Recreation Area Campground's operating season.
