Day Lake

This 100-acre US Forest Service campground area flanks 625-acre Day Lake. A variety of habitats, including floating sphagnum-tamarack bogs, attract seasonal waterfowl, raptors, and Northwoods’ mammals. Barrier-free viewing platforms, two nesting structures and shoreline hiking trails provide great opportunities to watch osprey and bald eagle.
