For such a large campground, Mauthe Lake Campground is cleverly laid out. Stretching north to south along Mauthe Lake, site types range from shady pine forest to exposed not-quite-on-the-beach sites. Walk along the Tamarack Nature Trail for beautiful views of the lake and a fishing pier detour or head east to the Ice Age Hiking Trail (and discover the secret swimming lake!). Of all the campgrounds in the Kettle Moraine, Mauthe Lake really has got it goin’ on!

Mauthe Lake Campground sits within the Kettle Moraine State Forest-Northern Unit, the fifth largest forest in WI covering 30,000+ acres of glacial features. Fascinating Wisconsin history with many outdoor activities for all seasons can be found in this woodsy paradise.

Mauthe Lake has a fishing pier and swimming beach, and if you bring your doggo they are welcome to splash around in the non-motorized boat landing. You can jump on the Ice Age Trail from here for a hike to the Parnell Tower or those with two wheels can cruise the 6.5 miles to Long Lake on the Lake to Lake Bike Trail. Single-track mountain biking is available at New Fane.

Hiking boots, your dog, bicycle, kayak, fishing pole, and as always a good book for the campfire
