    Campground Activities

    Boating, swimming, hiking. Go fishing on the 362-acre Boulder Lake, and you may catch walleye, northern pike, bass, or panfish. Ice fishing is also popular here, and the boat landing and parking area are plowed in winter for your convenience. Nearby streams are good for trout fishing, and the Wolf River offers additional fishing, rafting and canoeing opportunities. If you plan to come on a summer weekend, get an early start! Even though this is the Chequamegon-Nicolet's largest campground, campsites fill up fast.

    Q: A correction to woltra2,you do not pay extra to move to a lakeside campsite if u had reservations for a site u had already paid for. If u had reservations for a electric site u will only lose the difference for the cost of the electric site..U can go to a campground host and tell them that u are moving...I know, i was a host there for a few years...It is a very beautiful place to camp... -Guest

    We love Boulder Lake Camprground - the only reason I gave it 4 stars is because they have limited staff on site and once you are in a site you can't easily change sites (for instance if you book online but find a lake side site open, you will end up having to pay for both if you want the lake side one). Otherwise all other facilities are nice. They have hot showers and flush toilets (they do have pit toilets too for middle of the night close options, but they are CLEAN CLEAN CLEAN... possibly the cleanest pit toilets I have ever used!). You cannot reserve the Lake side sites, they are all first come first served and they DO fill up almost as soon as they vacate, but they are so nice, and many of them have private little paths to the lake which is clear and beautiful. Sites are generously sized, with various amounts of privacy (sometimes you can see neighbors, but they are not right on top of you). Some of the sites have electricity for pop-ups/rv's. I dont think there are water hookups at sites but they do have a water/dumping station near the entrance. The whole campground have a nice mix of tall mature pines and other trees, which is important to me because I love tall mature evergreens having grown up camping in redwood forests out west.

    I also love the Wolf River (quick drive from campground) for rafting, make sure the water is high enough before you go though or you will end up struggling to not get stuck on boulders and you will resemble a metal ball bouncing around in a pin-ball machine the whole way down the river (we use Herb's Rentals, nearby-and they have a nice restaurant/bar too if you don't feel like cooking after your float). Water levels are great after rainy springs/early summers - and that is the best time to attempt to river raft imo.

    But all in all this is one of our favorite camp grounds in wisconsin, and you will find us there again this camping year.
