Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest
Follow the Heritage Drive Scenic Byway to one of the most popular camping areas in the Nicolet located on the shores of crystal-clear Franklin Lake. This 881-acre lake provides excellent swimming, boating, and fishing. Historic stone and log structures and campsites mixed with tall pines and hemlocks are perched near the lake's edge--a beautiful setting for this campground that is on the National Registers of Historic Places. An interpretive center and naturalist programs are featured throughout the summer. In addition, a one-mile interpretive trail which passes Butternut Lake is available for every season. Numerous other trails are nearby, including the Hidden Lakes Trail connecting to Luna-White Deer Campground, as well as a six-mile trail to Anvil Lake Campground.
