Rural property that once was a combination of a dairy farm and commercial woodland. It is rare in that it has a 40 acre field, a 5 acre island, a year round creek and over 2,000 feet of river frontage and nearly 40 acres of woods. Learn more about this land: There are over 80 acres of woods, fields and an island to explore. The property has over 2,000 feet of frontage on the Chippewa River. There is also a year around creek that flows through the property to the river. Currently there are three separate sites that are suitable for camping on the bank of the Chippewa. Each site is primitive and has lots of privacy. There are five trails that go through the woods as well as follow the bank of the river. There is a stairway that descends to the river. The river at this point is rather pristine. There are no houses on the camping side of the river and just a few on the opposite side. The river along the property is great for wading, swimming, canoeing/kayaking and fishing. There are over a dozen lakes within a 20 mile radius of the property. Less than 3 miles from the property there are snowmobile and four wheeling trails that connect to trails that extend over 300 miles. The property is less than 15 miles from the headquarters of the Ice Age Trail that stretches from near Superior to near Madison, Wisconsin.

The campsite is a great place! We loved it and would definitely go back. Our 2 year old loved it too, running around and laying in the tall grass. Dennis was very nice as he was showing us to our camping spot. I would give this campsite a 5/5 rating!

Site 4 - Maggie's Merry Mirror
Me and my friend stayed at site 5 rather then 4. We were happy with the switch and recommend site 5 as it’s back in the woods more. We had a great time and loved our camping spot. We definitely plan on coming back again. And the privacy of the camp site was also great.

Dennis is a very patient and giving man. Even when we blithely followed our GPS (which got us lost) we then followed his directions and he helped us get back on tack. Sites are somewhat primitive (as was expected) but they are spectacular, especially in the fall. If you like easy gentle kayaking, this is the area for you. Cell phone reception is very spotty, and GPS here can be inaccurate. Make sure you know your way here on a paper map before you start out.

Best Camp Trip Ever!
My partner and I absolutely loved camping at Maggie’s Merry Mirror! Due to the weather, we had basically all the grounds to ourselves which meant for the first time literally ever, our dogs could be dogs and explore and run and swim. The site itself was beautiful. We pitched our tent right along the water and spent the 4 days getting in touch with nature. Dennis and Kathleen were absolutely wonderful hosts. Very responsive, thoughtful and helpful. If I could recommend one thing it’s shoes with good grip as getting down to the campsite can be a bit slippery if it’s been rainy. But there is a rope railing and roots that act as steps so it wasn’t too bad. Overall, we absolutely loved it out there and would 100% come back in a heartbeat. Thank you so much Dennis and Kathleen for having us!

We had a great couple of nights at Maggie's Mirror-site 1. Dennis and his dog met us when we arrived and showed us around the property. The walk from where you park to the campsite feels magical. We had a small tent and there were not a lot of options for even ground but we made it work. It was fun to explore the trails around camp. Found some mushrooms and took Dennis's recommendation to hike part of the Ice Age Trail. The learning center at the headquarters was very cool and educational. The circle trail was a great 4.5 mile hike with lots of shade. We didn't have any issue with bugs--but I would expect the bugs to be pretty terrible in the summer months--it's very swampy, which is perfect for fall, but not summer. Highly recommend and would return for sure!
