The Chequamegon–Nicolet National Forest is actually two national forests that together cover over 1.5 million acres. Lying within the Chequamegon National Forest are two officially designated wilderness areas; the Porcupine Lake Wilderness and the Rainbow Lake Wilderness.
These national forests are best known for recreation, including camping, hiking, fishing, cross country skiing, and snowmobiling.
Chequamegon National Forest offers activities for all seasons. In warmer months, explore the forest’s mountain biking trails, go horseback riding, or try your hand at geocaching. As snow blankets the landscape, get out and go snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, or snowmobiling on groomed trails.
