Trapper Arts Retreat in NW Wisconsin has (3) waterfront sites and (1) wooded site. Located on a 1/4 mile long dead-end road (except Bob Lake West) on a 90 acre clear water no-wake lake and only 5 minutes from the Chippewa County Forest! The Chippewa County Forest (over 10,000 acres) Hickory Ridge Trailhead is located about 5 miles away. You can enjoy miles of hiking, biking, ATV or horseback riding trails. Trails wind past small lakes and beaver ponds, as well as spectacular vistas and abundant wild life. LIST OF SITES (all of our sites now include a portable toilet, firewood, fire ring, water, power, picnic table and/or chairs). BIRCH Waterfront is named for the beautiful birch trees that frame your view of the lake that also includes soothing evening loon sounds :) It is our medium size campsite with a level gravel and grass pad with lakefront access via the long wooded dock and an included row boat for fishing and boating. EAGLE POINT Waterfront is a favorite because it is the most private, surrounded by trees and is on a elevated waterfront lot with steps down to a dock. This site has a canoe and a row boat and the best spectacular sunset views. The eagle's nest is in a tall pine tree above the steps! BOB LAKE WEST Waterfront is our only site that is not on this dead end road. It is located on the west side of the lake near the boat landing. This site has a bonus small storage shed which could be a cool kids cabin. It is partially wooded elevated site with stunning sunrise views. WOODED RUSTIC is a non-waterfront campsite for both tents or RV's that has been updated to a level site with power and water and includes access to the lake and a row boat at our common access which is only about 200 yards down the road from this site. RV's can park on the gravel pad and tent guests can setup down the walking trail in the woods. This property was previously owned by Trapper Art who was well known in the area and started several successful businesses dating back to 1967 including Art's Snowmobile, Trapper Arts, and Art's Electric which was quite an accomplishment in the Wisconsin Northwoods!

Bob Lake West
Fun and Peaceful
Beautiful site on a peaceful lake. The hosts, Brenda and Mike, were very accommodating and ensured our stay was going to be great. Our kids loved it, and we will be back!

Bob Lake - Eagle Point Waterfront
Great time! totally private
We loved our stay at Brenda's place! Very secluded, the lake was dreamy, access to two boats. The owners brought out a floaty and charcoal for us to use. The campsite is huge, with gorgeous tall mature pines. We liked that the ground was covered in pine needles vs dirt everywhere. Having access to electric and water was a huge plus. We would stay here again for sure!

Bob Lake West
My family had a lot of fun camping at Bob Lake West. The site is perfect if you have a larger group of people and just want to hang out, relax, sit around a campfire, and take the row boat out on the lake. If you are looking for a remote/secluded site, this is not the place for you as there are cabins on either side. Brenda was very attentive and brought more wood when we needed it.

Wooded Rustic with Lake Access
The site is very secluded with a pretty secluded lake with a beautiful View. The people who own it are very nice and helped us start our fire. The whole site was beautiful and spacious. Definitely coming back again!

Bob Lake - Eagle Point Waterfront
It is a great lot! Loved to watch the sunset on the doc each night and enjoy the loons calling while sitting around the fire pit each night. 10/10 would recommend!

Bob Lake - Birch Waterfront
Beautiful area! We heard the loons sing, owls, coyotes. Fishing off the dock was so fun - we caught sunnies and bass all day. The little row boat is so cute and fun! A ton of firewood provided! Very private. Our electricity didn’t work, but we didn’t mind! We would definitely do it again!
