Chequamegon National Forest


Located in Northern Wisconsin including parts of southern Sawyer County, where towering pine and hardwood forest are interspersed with crystal clear lakes and streams, the Chequamegon National Forest offers a wealth of opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. The name Chequamegon originates from the Ojibwa or Chippewa language which is thought to mean “the place of shallow water.” The Chequamegon now encompasses 857,000 acres in northern Wisconsin.

The Black Lake Recreation Area is located just south/east of Moose Lake in the center of the Chequamegon National Forest. The park contains a picnic area, swimming beach, boat landing and a scenic and challenging 4 mile hiking trail. Following the trail is like taking a walk through time to the old logging days of the Northwoods.

For your hiking, skiing and walking pleasure, there are over 300 miles of trails. Some trails are open for horseback riding and there are four ATV and mountain biking trail systems.
